Blue Estate, the darkly funny rail shooter based on Viktor Kalvachev’s Blue Estate comic series, was at this year’s Paris Games Week and developer HESAW have uploaded 2 short videos of the Xbox One version being played with Kinect 2 at the show.
Urgh I recently bought this for the PS4 cos it was cheap and I thought it might be worth a look. I was wrong, the controls fight you every step of the way. Reminds me of Fighter Within in that sense. Curious how they plan to make use of Kinect for the on rails shooting. I imagine it will be even worse than the sixaxis implementation in the PS4 version.
What do you mean how do you use Kinect 2 with it? You just aim with your hand/finger(s), it's not hard, there are plenty of Kinect 1 games that have accurate aiming already and Kinect Sports Rivals has accurate aiming in Target Shooting. (If it's not accurate for you then you're probably playing it wrong and flailing your arm around, all you have to do is subtly move your hand and wrist like you're actually aiming a gun and barely move your arm, it tracks the angle your hand is pointing in.) Also I've seen plenty of reviews of and user comments about the PS4 version of Blue Estate and they say it generally works fine once you've got the hang of it.
How can kinect aiming be accurate? It has no info on where the TV is relative to itself or the player. It doesn't know what you ate pointing at. The tv could be in another room and it'd track in exactly the same way. Kinect sports rivals target shooting is a great example that confirms you cannot aim by pointing at the screen. It is all based on relative movements. So like the sixaxis control, but less accurate and added latency.
