Quantum Break finds Nirvana but not peace

He’s lying, he has a gun

Although it won’t launch for another three weeks, Quantum Break has a launch trailer. That’s the weird dilution of terminology in the games industry today — words used because they sound good and not because they’re accurate. Really, this is more of a “pre-order, please!” trailer. Surely there will be more trailers between now and April 5.

Semantics aside, this particular trailer is fun because of its hazy, legato rendition of Nirvana’s “Come As You Are.” Conflict resolution comes in the form of just stopping time and simply taking guns away. Further conflict resolution involves a lot of shooting and punching. Pacifism only gets you so far, bud.
