So, she's not even a new character, but a literal reskin of an already existing one, which was white but of course? Typical.Anderson was a Quantum Break easter egg character...and she was a white blonde woman. Yap. I'm sure that's why they couldn't stick with Alan's wife (a more logical choice). They have the "excuse" "she's an already existing character from another game" but also "she's a barely known character from Quantum Break, so race swapping will be less noticeable by Alan Wake fans". It's so ridiculous.
I'm don't care about race per se...but inserting race swapping for pandering is so tiring and dissapointing. So sick with this "movement". Because it's not because an ambitious artistic vision or even an 'auteur' ideology. It's algorithm and nothing else. Also in a game named, I don't know, ALAN WAKE xD .
Why are people complaining like it being easier to pirate is a bad thing?>EGS exclusive
Mother Goddamned fucker, I hope someone gets a box of dead rats in the mail for this.
Their worst game (Quantum Break) was still better than 95% of everything else that released in that period and Control, which I consider a spiritual successor, more than made up for it. It did quite well commercially too; enough to get a sequel and standalone multiplayer spinoff title.
They should really just delay this until December at least, ideally January/February. Too much competition in Fall 2023.
