Factor 5's Julian Eggebrecht has been thinking about motion controls a lot lately. While still content with Lair's
much-maligned input system, he has found issues with Warhawk's
use of motion controls less-than-stellar. In an interview with Games Radar, Eggebrecht said that "Warhawk's controls are... eurgh!"
"I see motion-sensing as a complimentary, additional new step in terms of controls and where it fits you should use it and where it doesn't fit, don't force it. Please don't force it," he said. You see that folks? Eggebrecht just redefined irony
Note that Warhawk
can be played entirely without using the Sixaxis' tilt capabilities -- hence, they are not "forcing it." Is this a sign that Factor 5 might resign themselves to releasing a Lair
patch enabling analog stick flight, or do we need to tell the Emperor he is strolling through the village without any clothes on?
