Killzone: Mercenary’s Melee Combat Is Optional

Well I know this already, but it's good news to those who don't know it is optional. I've heard a lot of complaining about having to use the touchscreen so often, like in Uncharted Golden Abyss. It does actually take from the experience when touchscreen swiping becomes tedious. At least they're making it optional so you don't have to swipe every single time. I wish they would use the gyroscope for precise sniper aiming like in Uncharted.

thatd be so great! But yeah the swipping of screen kinda destroyed the exp in uncharted, but i can see why they decided it killzones gunna be awesome

It messed up the experience for me a little too :(
If they ever make a sequel to Golden Abyss, I would like them to make the menus not touchscreen only too.

Good

That's good, I kinda like swiping the screen though
GdaTyler  +   459d ago
I would like that as well, but for people who get tired of having to keep swiping, they would get bored. It's good that it's optional.
LinktersHD  +   459d ago
True, swiping all the time is annoying and you can't really focus on the controls.

@GdaTyler i know! especially getting the screen dirtyed.it takes from the choices too. The standard use of buttons is here to stay

You don't like the Vita touch screen because it gets dirty? Do you think it would be better off without it?

i hate it when the touchscreen gets dirty. every time i let someone else play my psvita i tell them to wash their hands before touching my psvita.
illtornworld  +   459d ago
I do hope the infection feature or something similar is in mercenary like in Resistance Burning Skies through near that was srs cool

Wow it's optional??

This is revolutionary. Such news is mind blowing.

It's not revolutionary but it would have been aggravating it was not, so it's good to know.

Well, it's a good way for people to know that melee combat is optional and etc.

Tweet said: "Brutal melee is touchscreen-specific, but pretty much optional - if you dislike touch input you can simply not use it."

What does that exactly mean? We can turn the feature off? Or we just don't use it and get less Mercenary Cash (if Brutal Melee increases points/cash)?

That's kinda as "optional" as getting a lower rank in SS.

Wouldn't mind either way but it might not be the clearest to some.

the melee combat being optional is great news, not just in terms of my own gameplay of the game but also because review sites like ign (or as i call them, IGNorant) etc cannot now complain about the touchscreen in their reviews like they do in every biased psvita review, and give higher review scores based only on the awesomeness of the game and the hardware that i've seen in gameplay trailers etc, which then makes casuals buy the game as well as us hardcore gamers and increase game sales as well as psvita sales!
