This time it's at a place called Killer Betties, and is an interview with NetDevil's Scott Brown. As the magazine describes itself as An Entertainment Magazine For Women!, the interview is sure to suck have questions that all females are desperate for answers to.
Women have generally stated that if a game's controls and UI are difficult to master, they won't spend long playing that game. How will you make sure the controls and UI are intuitive and easy to master, especially in a game so action oriented?
We are trying to make the game as accessible as possible. We are using a variety of controls including keyboard, mouse, game pad, joystick and wheel to allow players to find the controls that they like best. You are moving while firing, so Auto Assault does take some getting used to. I have always liked the design mantra of "Easy to learn, but difficult to master."
It's true: countless times I've seen a woman struggle to get to grips with a "keyboard" and "mouse" before bursting into tears in frustration. Fine journalism indeed, Rosethorn.

For more gold, you can check out the "oh noes it's valentines day!" editorial, or even better, the "oh noes im turning 30 and im FREAKING OUT!" column.
