There will definately be mouse support, but I'm not sure about
keyboard, as it
will be difficult to translate some of the combos into keyboard input.
Personally,, I loathe playing action games with the keyboard, it is like
trying to tap dance
in combat boots, there is just no subtlety of control there.
Frankly, I think it is past time accessible gamers got used to using a
it opens up a whole new vista of opportunities with gaming.
I think at some level you might want some minimum keyboard support such
as menus, status keys, whatever but actual game play can be performed
via the mouse or a joystick.
As far as your over all opinion of the keyboard verses alternative
input devices such as joysticks and mice I whole heartedly agree. As for
myself I tend to gravitate to using a joystick or game pad as that
usually gives me a much finer control over the game than does the
keyboard. in games like Rail Racer I am far more efficient at playing
the game with a stearing wheel, game pad, etc than I am with a keyboard.
When it comes to using the mouse it also makes a huge difference in game
play. In Mysteries of the Ancients if an enemy is attacking from the
right all I need to do is drag the mouse a little left to quickly back
out of range. It is far more responsive and much more suddle then using
a keyboard for sure. I just wish I could getthe mouse support to work
correctly in Mysteries of the Ancients as it truly adds a new experience
to the game play.
