..we're allowing you to control the game with a mouse and keyboard..

That's very kind, is the game also in black and white or have you authorized the use of color?

That seems taken out of context. He says it makes the game feel different, as something to be taken into consideration when porting it. It's a fairly common point for a lot of games that don't happen to be twitch shooters or RTS games. Third person shooters and flight games usually end up hobbling the mouse speed to preserve a game's feel, with inevitable outcry from the PC side.

Rebinding keys is pretty weak, but the first 2 games did let you rebind them; it was just kind of half-assed. Didn't recognize more than 3 buttons on a mouse, and there was a petition for a disabled gamer who needed to be able to map walking to the mouse. EA's guy is saying they deserve credit for responding to the petition, and getting jumped on for it. It's basically the same thing as what the Legend of Grimrock devs did when they got a similar request, but they probably wouldn't be hounded for mentioning it.
