When Microsoft made its huge Xbox One announcement last week, everyone bitched and moaned about the fact that the new console would not be as game-centric as its predecessors or the other systems of its generation. Only a handful of people had that, "Woah, wait a minute, what about all the things they could do combining TV and games?" Enter Quantum Break.
Quantum Break looks like a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure hopped up on biker-crank and Phillip K. Dick. The Xbox One exclusive title will do what a next-generation console is supposed to do: radically different shit like combining TV and games. And no, not like that one game back in the 80s that gave all those kids seizures or any other half-assed game/show hybrid we've ever seen. Game developer Remedy Entertainment, has said that the game and show are in simultaneous production and that, "how you play the game impacts the show, and the show informs how you play the game." We're beyond flashing screens and boilerplate scripts, aren't we? E3 will hopefully give us a bit more than the trailer.
