Preview: Quantum Break Week 2

Preview: Quantum Break Week 2

Quantum Break is back for more preview coverage on Gamersyde, this time focused on the first 2 chapters of the second act. As required by Microsoft, the direct feed videos we provide had to be commented, so feel free to tell us what you think of our performance. Since it is a particularly time-consuming thing to do, we'd rather know now if it's well worth the effort. No written article this week as we felt it was a bit less relevant and the videos would be more than enough to make you happy. We'll be live tonight from 10:15 CEST onwards, so join us if you you want to see the game in action again.
Note: This week's footage was recorded in hard mode.
Update: Replays added.

Which one is the safest to watch? (less spoiler)

I guess the action one, since some of what's happening in act 2 was already shown before. There are no story related spoilers, except maybe in the Warehouse video (though the beginning of the sequence was also shown last year - at Gamescom). As for the Non Action Sequences video, it is spoilery if you want to discover the broken time sequences on your own.

I really liked the commentary, and thanks again for the amazing quality, more people need to understand how youtube compression makes these games look significantly worse :)

Very nice, thanks. Looks Remedy quality. Your commentary is funny, you sounds different than on the streams :D
Was there TV episode between the chapters?
Commented on 2016-03-28 11:16:19 In reply to mbalazs
There are only episodes in between acts.

I probably sound different because it's a lot more stressful I guess. Also it has to sound different because it's a commented video and it's not improvised. The problem is it's hard to get the timing right when you do it without the proper software so it's all very MacGyvery. Yesterday evening was nightmarish actually, had to work between 9 p.m. to almost 2 o'clock to prepare the three English videos... It explains why it's not perfect, why there are a few mistakes and problems. I didn't have the courage to start over another time after so many tries. :x

Thanks for watching!

Your efforts are much much appreciated. :) I don't want to watch as I want to leave it until I play but thanks so much for this anyway.

We haven't been sent a code yet. Not sure if we will before the game becomes available sadly. :(

do let us know about the "real" system requirements, if possible ! and maybe how your rig will handle it
much appreciated

We will if we are sent the PC version before its release. If not, I'm sure a lot of people on Gaf will let the world know. ;)

Can you do a screenshot of what it looks like? It's not supposed to be like that at all...

Probably your system infected by a malware.

IT could also be our advertising partner, wouldn't be the first time :(

The game looks beautiful. Not to keen on the distortions around the character, but the environment and time glitches are some of the best I've seen. The passage of time sequence is also a marvel. Anybody know how well the game plays?
Commented on 2016-03-28 22:34:07
Its not pressent anymore...not my systems fault...the banner was too big and even after pressing the "X" in the corner to close it, it remained covering the upper part of the web.

Thanks

1 clip is enough for me. It's looking really good, i hope PC plays good too. none of the system requirements talk about 60fps for the recommended requirements. so i'm guessing a GTX970 for 1080p 30fps? sounds GPU crushing if true.

This game looks amazing in motion.

    droezelke @Moonwalker: I agree. Other than the Metal Gear series, he didn't really present something as good. And I thought MGS5 was ultra boring (48 minutes ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus never played snatcher, but policenauts has a awesome scenario. (57 minutes ago)

    Tiz @Moonwalker: 2 is the best Metal Gear Solid though. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Personally i find Kojima rather overrated. Yes MGS and MGS3 were fantastic, 2 wasn't nearly as good, same for 4 and 5....nah. (2 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @jmd749: Kojima Productions is independent. wrap that and give it away to your other half. (3 Hours ago)
