I'm kinda wondering what *specifically* 'controller support' means, myself. In particular, does it mean they're going to add a WASD-style movement scheme (that is, direct movement control over your character) to the Diablo-style 'move towards the mouse pointer'? Or what?

On the rest...definite yay for the new story content (especially since it'll be coming out just about the time I've started getting bored with post-cap grind...), and a definite YECH at the leaderboards. Fortunately, MH is thoroughly soloable...leaderboards are part of what ruined the Alerts and Raids back when I was playing DCUO (and I considered those things at best a forced evil to begin with) because people were too focused on their numbers and e-peen to, you know, actually run the instance.Reply

The dev that said he's doing it as a pet project said he was looking at how the game Gauntlet did with their 's prior to their own news of heading to consoles . that game is already similar to Diablo and divinity original sin also fallowed suit as well. so you'll see when it happens.


here's the deav that said they are doing this on their forum http://forums.marvelheroes.com/discussion/comment/1852281#Comment_1852281


The dev goes by the name PGhiocel there.

There's also the comparison to what was done for an actual theatrical release, and what was done for, say, Wing Commander 4 which was for the most part a movie with a few interactive portions. Given the quality of WC4's production, there's not really much excuse at all for the movie.

Yeah I agree. I'm no fan of the WC movie. I walked away disappointed for what could of been but it isn't the worst movie ever made by any means. Also, what a testament to the quality of Wing Commander IV - such a great production, those DVD quality cutscenes are still great to look at to this day.

" At the end of the day, if it's a bit late and it's great, that's what counts. If it's crap and you push it out the door, it's crap forever."

Hmmm....weren't the Duke Nukem Forever devs working under that philosophy? Then again, they didn't have a bunch of backers they were accountable to, either.
