Halo Wars without a doubt. @Blues Yeah, I agree the one type of games Kinect could/can work well for is RTS's and I enjoyed the first Halo Wars, I had it on 360.
I'd like that. Feel the original HW did a great job of bringing strategy to consoles and Kinect could be the feather in its cap. "Build Grizzly." "Build Grizzly." "Build Grizzly." "Build Grizzly." "Build Grizzly." "Build Grizzly." "Build Grizzly." "Build Grizzly." "Build Grizzly." "Set waypoint." EDIT: I'm not being facetious: I genuinely believe that voice commands can completely reinvent the console RTS genre by giving us instant access to complex commands and build queues. Gestures could also be used to select units etc. EDIT 2: Cheers NextLevel, completely agreed (again!)
Halo wars was great and i liked the cgi cutscenes.Esemble really nailed down the basics of a strategy game on console.they did a great job, the gameplay and graphics were really good. Age of mythology and Halo wars2 should be great on xbox one.
Voice commands I can easily see, but gestures... no. To inaccurate for a RTS game like Halo wars.
I wish they would reboot ODST and redesign it as a more tactical FPS similar to Rainbow Six. Instead of focusing on a "deep & engaging" (lol) story it would have been very cool to be able to plan assaults on different Covenant strongholds. There were so many possibilities they could have used, but it feels like they wasted it so much.
Master Chief Karting
As silly as it sounds an Xbox version of Mario Kart could be incredible. Instead of focusing on one franchise they should involve all of them, similar to Super Smash Bros.
problem is that microsoft has a real lack of super identifiable mascots. sony tried it with playstation all stars and failed. i mean microsoft could have master chief johnson arbiter elite grunt brute jackal meat boy bandage girl banjo conker marcus fenix and some third party people i mean thats a lot but, few franchises. ill keep dreaming
@60FramesPerSecond XBL Arcade game? Cast size could be the same as original Mario Kart :P That means at least 8 and the games do tend to use clones. How about including some original Xbox exclusives: Master Chief Arbiter Fenix Agent (Crackdown) Marius Titus Raam Banjo & Kazzoie Conker Sgt Johnson Sunset Overdrive dude? Limbo protagenist? Cortana Joana Dark Kameo Blinx Sam Fisher Frank West Stubbs the Zombie Ryu Hayabusa? Steve from Minecraft? Some Kinectimals? American and Russian variations of Toy Soldiers? Alan Wake Something from Steel Battalion, Grabbed by the Ghoulies, Oddworld Strangers Wrath, Jade Empire or Fable? The Gunslinger? Geometry Wars protagonist thing? :P That rubbish Lococycle thing? Hell why not get Hulk Hogan from the Kinect Exclusive game in there too! And while there at it have the Top Gear cast from Forza :P Obviously I'm clutching at straws with some of these and many of them would seem to better suit a Smash Bros kind of game, but I think they have the basis to make something very cool. *EDIT* How could I forget Sposion Man, Something from Viva Pinata, Goku (DBZ Kinect), and those lame, lame avatars.
Bring in the original Xbox and you've also got Raikoh from Otogi, Toejam & Earl, Orta, loads of SEGA exclusives basically. The vehicles, though, is where it's at. Warthogs versus that crazy fast Gears Tank? Yeah, I'd play that. If it was a very slow week.
Halo Wars Halo ODST Halo MMO...Stylized like Destiny on one of the rings or a planet? I would kill for Microsoft to take the budget from "Too Human" and put it into a Halo game...$100 Million.
For a minute there I thought you were suggesting that Silicon Knights made a Halo game... so much wrong with that! :P But considering that a Halo MMO was in the pipeline at one stage, it's not totally beyond the realms of possibility.
I think they canned the Halo MMO because they saw it was going to be ludicrously expensive, Plus seeing how names like elder scrolls and even Star wars couldn't find success I don't think they would consider it again. I would like to see them try a third person game though seeing as Halo CE was originally a third person game.
Not talking Halo MMORPG And that got canned when Ensemble Studios was closed... They're now reopening RTS studios and bringing back Age of Empires/Age of Mythology/Rise of Nations/Etc... That's why I was suggesting giving it a MASSIVE budget, and following Destiny style of gameplay mechanics. A fully explorable world with plenty of stuff to do. I'm just saying if Destiny becomes a success maybe it'll give Microsoft the reason to lease a massive budget Halo game alongside the Halo series. Maybe if Destiny/Fable Legends sell decently well it'll give a solid reason for it.
As long as it's not halo wars I'll be happy. I rather have another ODST game with firefight.
Did not play much Halo wars but seeing friends online always playing i gave it a go and really enjoyed it great stuff if true.
Halo wars 2 please
An ONI stealth focused game, calling it now.
Would be awesome a Halo TPS, but probably is a new Halo Wars.
OK, it's Halo but from the point of view of the grunt. You're a young grunt, just signed up with your new team. You're excited, but very nervous as you've heard of this Master Chief character taking out grunts like they were, well, grunts. You have been forced into the line of duty as grunt numbers have dwindled and your family has been unable to support itself in the farming business. After boot camp, you're forced into the line of duty immediately. From there, it's a story line where you and your company fight through waves of human fighters... until one day your family shows up in order to help you fight and earn a wage. Mama Grunt and Papa Grunt are old but sneaky and cunning. Your brother is a hot-headed, shoot first and ask questions later type of grunt. Your sister? You will soon find out the extent of her mysterious powers as a final battle with Master Chief looms on the horizon. Does anyone else have some more pot?
I think MS has enough Halo on it's plate.
I think it is going to be Halo: Dance Evolved.
