First Look At The New Ricochet For Natal

This new video shows the updated version of Ricochet for Project Natal, the movement looks a lot smoother and precise this time around.

The story is too old to be commented.
Natsu X FairyTail3100d ago

if it was something related to the move you'd be up there saying " Cant Wait"

dangert123100d ago

when you see people who are abit shy playing it and there avatar looks stiff as a missle lol

Cevapi883100d ago

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

Gamealot3099d ago (Edited 3099d ago )

well this is starting to get boring :-/

Chubear3099d ago (Edited 3099d ago )

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.

Redrum0593099d ago

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.

ALFAxD_CENTAURO3099d ago (Edited 3099d ago )

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>>

HolyOrangeCows3099d ago

The avatar barely responded to the movement of his hand.

Ausbo3099d ago

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.

fox023099d ago

Hate all you want but Natal plus the Slim, Reach, Fable 3 and Gears 3 are going to boost the X360 to oblivion.

Bigpappy3099d ago

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.

hamburgerhill3099d ago

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.

Rumor3099d ago

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"

GiantEnemyCrab3099d ago (Edited 3099d ago )

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.

Christopher3099d ago

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.

cayal3099d ago

"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?

Bzone243099d ago

Wow. Microsoft sure has their work cut out for them. The target audience for Natal, ps3 fanboys, hate it.

Triella3099d ago

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.

thegood333099d ago

I think Natal will be very successful. A Natal boxing game would be amazing. Imagine the exercise you will get from it.

Steffl3r3099d ago

And as for the Move?

WII HD.

That is all Mutha B*tches

inveni03099d ago

Am I the only one that notice the hands glitching out?

jjohan353099d ago

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?

shadow27973099d ago

"And as for the Move? - WII HD."

And as for Natal? - EyeToy HD.

We are both so clever! /s

Alvadr3099d ago

I weep for the future of games...

Move & Natal... Why would I care about either?

captain-obvious3099d ago

the video is not working for me
but all i see is that PIC and it shows the same old red balls game

Hill_billy3099d ago

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.

MNicholas3099d ago

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.

edgeofblade3099d ago (Edited 3099d ago )

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.

Steffl3r3099d ago

"Natal=Eyetoy HD"

But the funny thing? NATAL will actually work XP

Natsu X FairyTail3100d ago

Thanks dude. I dint want to instal Silversomething!

Godmars2903100d ago (Edited 3100d ago )

Why not? Its a MS product :p

Convas3100d ago

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.

Godmars2903100d ago

And yet there are people who act as if MS does no wrong. Sony too for that matter.

IdleLeeSiuLung3099d ago (Edited 3099d ago )

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.

Cueil3099d ago

is miles better than Flash when it comes to everything... especially to video...

IdleLeeSiuLung3099d ago

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

3099d ago
Christopher3099d ago

How the heck can you tell if lag is nonexistent when you don't see both screen and player at the same time?

zeeshan3099d ago

@ above: Lol... you owned Omega!

redbadger3099d ago

the lag looks awful. I hope they do something soon!

GIJeff3099d ago

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. :)

Christopher3099d ago (Edited 3099d ago )

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.

edgeofblade3099d ago

Huh? You can't even see any of the lag in this demo. So, I can only conclude that you are trolling.

green3099d ago

I have a feeling that Ricochet game will be the game that comes bundled with Natal. Looks much better and smoother now.

karl3099d ago

i doubt they'd dare to sell this thing
