Superhot – Another Great Indie Game Coming To The Xbox One... but best on Rift

IM PLAYIN discusses Superhot, an up and coming FPS indie game, which will probably be best on the Oculus Rift.

"After playing it on the Oculus Rift, I’m a little afraid that I could be left slightly disappointed with it on the console. It’s not the game’s fault, it’s that bloody Oculus Rift. Superhot was the perfect game for my first Oculus experience and after playing just a few minutes, the people at the booth almost had to tear the headgear from my face – I was that encapsulated by the game. It was incredibly fun, possibly the most fun that I had at the convention. I heard through the murmurs at EGX that the other games on the Rift were disappointing and that Superhot was their saving grace. After what I played, and how much I enjoyed it, I could see that being the case"

It was fun on Rift. Got to try it at E3 with a DK2. Not sure it would be much fun without VR though. I'm betting we see Microsoft's VR at next E3. I'd kill to go again.

I don't expect MS to rush into VR, when they do introduce their VR I see it opening with games like Superhot and Minecraft as VR exclusives.

I'm glad we won't be seeing VR on X1 for a while, focusing on building more studios and refocusing efforts away from Kinect. (Obviously there are a hand full of first party studios who will still build Kinect games)

Phil Spencer is re purposing a lot of teams and studios in order to build more AA/AAA first party exclusives. Especially with the wealth of IPs that have been dormant with Don Mattrick at the helm.

Don't get this site not one bad word or derogatory comment about anyone or anything . But you get Disagree's for being honest and positive. That is just sad.

These aren't upvotes and downvotes. They are agrees and disagrees. These people disagree with the comment, nice or not. I wish we used a different system though.

The bubble system, too, is crap and doesn't promote conversation. It seems to more be a cheap way of keeping server traffic low. N4G would do well to use Disqus, instead. But that'll never happen.

This game could quite easily use Kinect integration. As far as I can tell, cameras caught the head movements in the rift version, which the Kinect could easily do. You could then just use a controller to control the character and let the Kinect pick up body movements to sway your character's head from side to side.

That being said, I think it would still be better with a VR headset over the Kinect.

I played the browser version of this game. So simple yet so fun. It's a brilliant fresh idea.

You mean in the same way your parents having you was a dumb idea?

I have crossed eyes so I doubt if this is my forte. Sucks to be me
