I’m a huge fan of all remedy games and I’ve just started this.
Awkward question - please excuse me if I’m way off base (as I’ve said I’m not far into the game), but does this game have a kind of satanic tone?
It just seems kind of disturbing in a kind of subliminal way and I can be a little sensitive about this topic so I was wondering if other players could comment to either reassure or confirm my initial impression?
I played it late at night (and in an exhausted state so it could well just be my own sensitivity here).
You just need to know that AWE is an abbreviation for "Altered World Events". For those who want to correlate it to Alan Wake: the events at Bright Falls are explicitly referenced and defined as an Altered World Event, and the clicker and/or lake/cabin as Object of Power / Altered Items. The Bureau of Control investigated the events, including interviewing Wake's wife. Wake is assumed to be trapped in another dimension.
I always thought it was going to be like this. That is the best way to connect different games one with another and give a sense of continuity to things which apparently have nothing in common. Clever move.
Yeah, I think it was constructing 'pierce' that was bugged.
A number of issues to do with progression have also been fixed with the Control 1.03 update. These include times when a player could not acquire “Pierce Charging Efficiency” and “Spin Grouping Efficiency” upgrades. There was also an issue that prevented players from activating the Pierce weapon form upgrade. Other issues affecting player progression in several missions have also been fixed.
