That's good that the developers aren't forcing it in. If Kinect is a good idea for a certain game, then that's great. If it doesn't, then that's also great.

So not only are Insomniac doing whatever the hell they want to with this game, they are also not including Kinect just for the heck of it. Awesome.

Insomniac back to their glory days, it seems. After watching gameplay of this game, it has just shot up as one of my most anticipated titles. What a glorious time to be a gamer.

"Insomniac back to their glory days"

Jesus relax. You've seen very little and played none. Way too soon to be crowning them back (in a genre they've been fairly average at selling and/or making)

"Jesus relax. You've seen very little and played none. "

Stop trying to kill my excitement, Mr. Buzz Killington. Lol.

I see SO, then i look at Fuse, then i look at R&C....*seems* (keyword) like they're back in the glory days to me.

Why does it bothers you so much that someone is hyped about the game? Going by what have been shown the game looks really promising.

Mr. Zurkon doesn't care about your problems, calis. He cares only about pain.

"Going by what have been shown the game looks really promising."

So did Lair, so did Bulletstorm, so did Resistance 2 (though I loved R2), so did 100s of games that come out and don't.
That's the point of releasing this kind of information, to build the hype on the good parts, you'll find out the bad parts when the reviews come out/play it.

Yeah and so did UC games, God of War games, Halo games need I say more? It 's really easy to just list the ones that flopped and ignore the successful ones. But we get it you dont get excited about games..

The gameplay doesn't seem like its really a good fit for Kinect, except I would have enjoyed so little additions similar to how DR3 uses Kinect for sound to attract zombies, still it looks like a fast paced open world game with crazy effects so I'm glad Insomniac are just making the game exactly how they want and not forcing anything.

calis1449d ago

"But we get it you don't get excited about games.."

I don't get excited about games with very little gameplay and controlled information in a genre to which they haven't been very successful in.

E3 will show more no doubt.

Devs need to use Kinect for face scanning like KSR, it's extra I know, but it would be really cool.

Eonjay1449d ago

Can't find the gameplay footage but I love the color palette used in this game.

MasterCornholio1449d ago


I have no idea how these developers managed to produce something like fuse.

^Because EA is a terrible publisher.

Pretty much I'm expecting Insomniac game to not use Kinect in their game because they are working on a great experience for everyone to enjoy!

Edit: I think Insomniac games are trying to go with "Ratchet and Clank" of the Xbox type of plan.


LOL...watcha tryna say??

randomass1711447d ago

Not to be a stooge but if they actually WANTED to use Kinect, couldn't it still be a great experience for everyone if they used it well? :P

Bonkerz1449d ago

No reason to use kinect, it doesnt fit in this type of game at all. No reason to force integration for something that doesnt need to be used.

Volkama1449d ago

I'd quite like to be able to scan myself into a Sunset Overdrive styled avatar akin to a Kinect Sport Rivals champion. That'd be neat.

randomass1711447d ago

Dude, that'd be sick!! :D Too bad they won't add that in. Maybe for the sequel?

lahariko1449d ago

Oh xbone ure lucky today ..

dota2champion1449d ago

when is microsoft going to show us that Kinect is relevant to gaming?

killzone6191449d ago

maybe when the VR headset releases?

randomass1711447d ago

What, like a Kinect VR headset? How would that even work? o.O
