This new video shows the updated version of Ricochet for Project Natal, the movement looks a lot smoother and precise this time around.
if it was something related to the move you'd be up there saying " Cant Wait"
when you see people who are abit shy playing it and there avatar looks stiff as a missle lol
i hope they show something better and more intuative than this at E3....it gets old when you keep seeing the same game with nothing really new about it other than it being played in another environment
well this is starting to get boring :-/
lol, is that it haha
now, if you look at that and are giddy with anticipation.. but look at what Sony has offered in games with the move and say "meh" then you need to take a long hard look in the mirror. Sony has shown over 15 titles incorporating MOVE covering several different genres and MS keeps showing you chasing red balls... with lagg.. I have said enough.
they need to show something new. and notice how they didnt show an angle of the man and the game in one screening, they probably havent fixed the lag yet.
Why do you mention Sony? You just invoked the Fanboys (mention Sony and games from PS3 superior from news about MS Products is starting a flame war). Incoming>>
The avatar barely responded to the movement of his hand.
please show something new. im sick of this game.
They can improve Ricochet all they want and it'd still be crap. Who the hell wants to spend an hour flailing like an idiot in front of a glorified EyeToy? Incorporate Natal into a game that doesn't involve you swinging your arms like an idiot like Sony has incorporated Move into their new street brawler "Lights Out" and then MAYBE I'll be impressed. Natal at this point still looks like an overrated toy that is nothing more than a glorified tech demo for what could be but doesn't actually work well. Yes we could put wings on a car to make it fly, but at this point a plane simply works better. Yes we can take the controller out of games, but at this point a controller simply works better. Move is a step in the right direction. It takes everything the Wii promised and attempts to deliver on many of the things Nintendo failed to do. Time to ditch Ricochet MS. I like that you folks reduced lag times a bit but show us something other than swinging at red balls already if you want to impress anyone.
Hate all you want but Natal plus the Slim, Reach, Fable 3 and Gears 3 are going to boost the X360 to oblivion.
that they have moved this from a tech demo to a game. This will probably be a freebie with Natal. Looks funtionally and aestheticly improved.
Maybe this has been Microsoft's intention all along to demonstrate and constantly work on optimizing a very fast game for Natal use. I think if they can nail this game all others will be a breeze. I'm sick of seeing this title but have no issue with waiting until E3. The good news for all of is as long as MS keeps things away from the media both Sony and Nintendo will keep upping there game and give them a fight for the holidays. Yeah we all know this sucks but just look at how Sony is really going at it with Move and Nintendo is trying to deliver games finally.
can they please show a different demo!! damn ricochet is givin me brain aneurysms. all it is is a guy hitting the balls back at the damn bricks....so repetitive! im not dissing natal, but jeez ms get something new out there! im going to lol at the achievements for this game. "achievement unlocked- hit 200 balls with ten different body parts"
MS isn't going to show jack until E3. Ricochet is all your going to see for now. Just don't click on any Natal articles because you can expect it to be just more Ricochet.
I think someone needs to look up the word 'new' in the dictionary. There wasn't anything there we haven't seen before multiple times.
"Hate all you want but Natal plus the Slim, Reach, Fable 3 and Gears 3 are going to boost the X360 to oblivion. " Do you know what oblivion means?
Wow. Microsoft sure has their work cut out for them. The target audience for Natal, ps3 fanboys, hate it.
In the Spanish presentation of the game commentator said that MS doesn't authorize to film a person playing and the screen at the same time... for obvious reasons.
I think Natal will be very successful. A Natal boxing game would be amazing. Imagine the exercise you will get from it.
And as for the Move? WII HD. That is all Mutha B*tches
Am I the only one that notice the hands glitching out?
I want to see more games than just Ricochet. Am I the only one who's getting tired of seeing only Ricochet over and over?
"And as for the Move? - WII HD." And as for Natal? - EyeToy HD. We are both so clever! /s
I weep for the future of games... Move & Natal... Why would I care about either?
the video is not working for me but all i see is that PIC and it shows the same old red balls game
Maybe this game is the tech demo behind the tech? Maybe as they work out the bugs for this title they essentially work out the bugs for other titles? I'm just offering up a theory but it seems to me like they show this game so much that it has to be significant for some reason unbeknownst to us.
the other clips in the video (ninja boy, water girl) are choreographed. The actual real-time gameplay looks messy and imprecise. Lots of jittery limbs and way too much delay.
Look, Mr. Soft, I'm sure Ricochet will be a fun little game right out of the box, but I have no intention of firing it up after the first month unless someone who hasn't seen Natal wants to try it. And at that point, I hope to have something more interesting to show them. So, please, show us something new. Sony has been showing us how to play SOCOM and cool multi-"touch" demos with Move. When can we expect that from Natal? Want to show something cool in Natal? Make a dodgeball game or a versus ricochet with a second person on another xbox.
"Natal=Eyetoy HD" But the funny thing? NATAL will actually work XP
I cutout all the other stuff
Thanks dude. I dint want to instal Silversomething!
Why not? Its a MS product :p
Just cuz I have a 360 and Windows 7, doesn't mean I like all MS products. Hence the reason some of us use Firefox and Google.
And yet there are people who act as if MS does no wrong. Sony too for that matter.
Id rather Google Chrome.
Yeah, Google Chrome is awesome, but man do you give up privacy when using Google products! Google products is like a drug. It works great, but every time you use it, you give away a little bit of your soul.
is miles better than Flash when it comes to everything... especially to video...
For now, Silverlight isn't used much in ads so loading a webpage doesn't kill my computer nor does it have annoying sound I can't turn off. However that is for now. With that said, so far silverlight doesn't seem to consume as much CPU power. Flash easily eats up my C2D!
Wow the lag looks none existent now, Natal has come a long way since E3
How the heck can you tell if lag is nonexistent when you don't see both screen and player at the same time?
@ above: Lol... you owned Omega!
the lag looks awful. I hope they do something soon!
i think its bad interpretations of hand/wrist position. Unless that person playing is a seal, i've never seen any regular person's hand flap around loosely and wildly like that while trying to swat something. oh well, i'll still get it in hopes of something good coming out for it. im also getting move. :)
Like above, I want to know how people can tell lag when they never show the screen and player in the same shot? And don't go to tell me you can tell by the occasional movement of the hand in front of that one screen capture because it's impossible to extrapolate complete body movement based on some random hand movements that we can't line up with the actions in the game. This video shows us absolutely nothing new about Natal or about the amount of lag in the game.
Huh? You can't even see any of the lag in this demo. So, I can only conclude that you are trolling.
I have a feeling that Ricochet game will be the game that comes bundled with Natal. Looks much better and smoother now.
i doubt they'd dare to sell this thing
They need a better game to bundle with Natal. Something like Wii Sports. About 300 Dollars for this? no thank. People buy just a Wii for Wii Sport. Would you buy an Xbox 360 for this game?
thats what i thought as well. Even Wii-sports is better than this. I guess MS is really turning the x360 into a wii which is stupid.
Do either of you even know what your talking about? $300 for what? they have not released a price point for it yet. Clearly you don't have a brain either. Natal is an xbox 360 accessory, you don't have to buy it so no M$ is not turning it into the wii. also on your other point of stupidity the whole $300 thing...Sony is talking about keeping their stuff for move at under $100 considering sony and M$ are both coming late to the motion control "party" they are going to be somewhat competitive in pricing. You have to be completely dense to think M$ would release an accessory no matter how integral they want to make it for the same price as their premiere system sku. Dont expect natal to be over $150 bucks and even then I feel I am EXTREMELY HIGH BALLING THAT, my personal beliefe is it will be in the range of $79.99-$99.99 would people buy an xbox 360 for this game? probable not, but is this game the only game that is going to be out for natal? no. Keep your mouth shut until E3 when you have all the facts and all the launch/post-launch titles.
Natal is suposed to be a "System Seller". 199 for the Arcade, and something about 100 for the bundle Natal-Red Ball Game. About 300u$d. Where are the other games? Painting with a Bucket? And my point is: They need a better game to bundle with Natal.
Steps to foretelling the future: 1. make some assumptions (or to fanboys facts) 2. extrapolate some conclusive data based on the assumptions 3. judge (or to fanboys condemn) the product
they will have dodgeball online!(Dodgeball Live!) that would be kewl. I am, however, not interested in the slightest with the voice recognition crap. MS pretends that it's natal exclusive...its a MICROPHONE. Tom Clancy's End War has voice commands. But whatever, I would enjoy playing dodgeball online, I would NOT like to play dodgeball with Milo gimmick at my side...
I think we have seen enough of this game..something new please..this game is so played out right now. and another vid which is not the way our Living rooms are setup...same goes for motion...I really wonder who's LR is setup for these thangs. we barely can play Wii in our LR... with a 57" TV and a couch 13" back with a coffee table in between
If this is the future of gaming can i have gaming past and present back please.
While this is pretty much a simple demo game, you can clearly see the potential in this. This is the future of gaming folks. I can't wait to try this with hardcore games like Ghost Recon or Fable. This is Play Beyond. Motion sticks is so last year.
Wait let me get this straight you see the potential of this for the hardcore while looking at a game that has you smash giant redballs into a wall? Tell me please what hardcore games did you play where you smash a giant redball into your opponent? Atleast the motionsticks work and has been shown. Natal is all blind hype with no games to show or tech demo's except for this 1.
This is just a simple demo game. You'd be stupid if your going to judge NATAL with this. I saw the potential from all the top developers in the world stating their excitement. Reading the recent Ghost Recon: Future Solder article brought my interest at a new level. The possibilities are endless. Can you imagine a game like Full Spectrum Warrior with Natal? Just pure gaming bliss. Simple hand commands would be enough to get me excited for this. Sure the eyetoy can probably do this, but has it???? HAS IT??? How long has that thing been around? The only game I can think of that used the eyetoy was that craptacular eye of judgement. Fact is more developers are excited for NATAL and is bringing bigger franchises to it. We're not getting no stupid eye of judgement here. Microsoft is bring Motion sensing to a new level. This is the future of gaming folks. Nobody cares for the sony's motion sticks. That's old tech. EDIT @ Below, What are you trying to prove with that video? All you did was prove my point that Sony's Eyetoy has never released anything exciting. Just pure shovelware. Read this... http://n4g.com/xbox360/News... Sony has never had anything at this level of motion in gaming. Microsoft is bringing motion gaming to a new level with actual real hardcore games.
Where are these hardcore games you keep talking about the only game i can think of is ghost recon and thats only used for the commands so it is a very minor part and not worth the 100dollar price tag that natal will probably be or more.
"Nobody cares for the Sony's motion sticks. That's old tech." So Move is old tech while Natal is the future? Then why did you put this "Sure the Eyetoy can probably do this, but has it????"? If the Eyetoy can do it then how is it new? I agree that Natal has plenty of potential, but I still don't know how they are going to incorporate Natal with less casual games. In the article you linked its rumored that Ghost Recon will use wrist controls, but it also says in a special mode. I can definitely see more hardcore games using Natal, but I can't see them using it more than occasionally or in special modes and we already know Socom 4 can be played using only the Move controls. People should be excited for Natal, it has plenty of potential, but until it shows something other than the ball game, there's no reason to be crowing this the future of gaming.
"You'd be stupid if your going to judge NATAL with this." You're judging its potential based on this.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... so stfu and wiki things before you rant.
still looks like a nutter doing it, and also still looks like something the ps eye could have and probably did churn out many many years ago and driving with no steering wheel, I still love that demo, seriously, would anybody really want to do that???
Actually caught my 12yr old nephew pretending to drive while he was in the passenger seat. Also where's the force feed back when racing with the natal, that's a big part of being immersed into a game itself.
like, can you play a shooter with it?
