Time travel is a pretty serious business, right? But that doesn’t mean you have to retain that stuff upper lip all the way through.
These are 10 great blink-and-you’ll-miss-them moments in Quantum Break that show that Sam Lake and the crew at Remedy Entertainment have a seriously wicked sense of humour.
1. Inspiration for Time Travel
Where does a science whizz get the inspiration for time travel? Doc Brown fell and hit his head. William Joyce, on the other hand…
2. Coffee Kills
Caffeine brings out the
crazy passion in this one.
3. ‘Paul Marine is a Douche’
Bruce Livingstone – that’s a name you’ll see in lights one day. Of course, Bruce will be the one putting them up if his screenplay/love letter/wish fulfilment fantasy is anything to go by.
4. Alan Wakes
So, hang on, are the students of Riverport learning about Alan Wake the writer? Or is Alan Wake teaching them writing? It’s almost as confusing as time travel itself.
5. Love is…
Sexual tension, is this online dating ad’s anything to go by.
6. Honest Journalism
At last, a newspaper that doesn’t have to lie.
7. One of Those Days
Let’s be honest, we’ve all been there…
8. ‘Paul Marine is a Douche’ – The Sequel
Bruce Livingstone returns in an all-new screenplay/love letter/wish fulfilment fantasy. Stars George Washington. Two thumbs up.
9. Young Enough to Know Everything
It was Oscar Wilde who said, ‘I am not young enough to know everything.’ Apparently the students in Riverport are: their protests directly explain the whole Quantum Break narrative in precisely four words.
10. The True Cost of Coffee
Let’s be honest though, minor traffic inconvenience and total erosion of our civil liberties is totally worth a free drink, right?
