Rocket Jump Ninja has an interesting take on the Mouse+Keyboard/Controller debate in Apex. I cant say I disagree with his conclusion, and I think he has some excellent suggestions.
Very pleased to see they remade the cinematics! It also looks like they are including some of the typical community mods in with the game, so that should make the mod pack obsolete which is great. If only they could have put in the real ending:
“Due to miscommunications or differing ideas, a different cinematic video was created from the one that I originally scripted,” says Levine. “It had this elaborate sequence where Shodan would attempt to kill you in a double-cross, as this ‘cyber stinger’ that was in view provided tension of your impending doom.” Upon getting his hands on the video for the ending sequence, Levine didn’t see anything that he wrote in the script. “We didn’t have much to work with. It was like when you look in the cupboard and you’re trying to make soup, and you have a bag of salt and couple of pinto beans.” Working with fixed assets can be extremely challenging especially with limited time and resources as well as fighting the technology back then. Levine remembers, “We had to write to the assets we had at that point, and all we could do was edit it. We completely ran out of time and that cut scene wasn’t the right ending for the game.” – Source
From what I played of the Kickstarter Backer Beta, this is a really solid game. What a great year for remakes!
