Darkone I think it is a fantastic idea and also framing it as the origin of the gravity gun is brilliant… But the controller was going to lift and throw a scientist NPC in a cutscene from what I remember… So if that is the animation then I hope it still gets included somewhere
How many physics props are floating around in xen?
But absolutely endorse them being able to do the attack by flinging stuff it would be great and really fits their ability of anti gravity. It is a much better attack then their silly energy balls. I always felt they should be able to latch on in a psycic way and mess up your controls for a small time switching left to right right to left and or forward to back, back to forward jump to duck and duck to jump say for a limited time while they psycic attack. The screen would have an animated overlay to show the psycic attack would have been latched on. Perhaps give the player a chance in slow motion to shoot and kill the controller that has you psycic latched.
Anyway let’s face it the Controller attack method was poor…
Happy Xmas and New Year!
