Harmonix, the creators of the Rock Band music series, is now bringing a Kinect only game that will bring dancers into the Xbox 360 with Dance Central.
Looked like DDR
When did DDR move past Left, up, right, down.
Obviously. The MS conference just finished and IMO it was the WORST conference I've ever seen. Horrible. EDIT: @Megapowa Well, -They showed only 1 new game and even that was only a live action trailer - The new 360 is priced the same, no price drop -They focused on Kinect and it was major fail. Video Kinect was so boring and the interface was laggy -The games for Kinect were nothing but casual stuff, mostly direct rip-offs of Wii games (which look like they work better on the Wii) -Metal Gear Rising does not look that good. In fact, it looked nothing like MGS. I'm not trolling, I'm just saying it was terrible. I could list more but that's what immediately comes to mind. We gave MS the benefit of the doubt. We waited ONE YEAR for E3 to see if Kinect would deliver and guess what? It didn't. They did show a single game for the core audience. They showed only laggy demos for casuals.
go back under your bridge.
Apart from MGS Rising and the Kinect interface, it was pretty bad IMO.
What was so horrible about it?
What was so great about it? They showed Reach, Fable 3 and Gears. That's about it. Everything else was for Kinect and it was lame. I don't know how you could be a gamer and get excited for what Kinect has offered so far. I'm not trying to troll but I really wanted more.
Kinect did deliver! just not for us gamers. The conference was still quite amusing, that skittles part was hilarious XD
ohhh im soo jealous lmao wow xbox 360 showed off the best games ever!!!
Honestly this was the best use of Nata...erm...Kinect to date. Dance games can easily make the most use of a controllerless input device as spin moves or (for the physically fit and physically capable), handstands and other complicated moves would be tough to pull off with a controller in your hand (lest you risk breaking your controller). The problem is the lag. The video in the demo seemed to just be the computer AI doing the moves with the folks on the stage following along. If MS can solve the horrible lag issues with Kinetic...Kintec...Kin...oh F it, NATAL I can see this being the game with the most potential of the bunch. The problem is that at this point, it's really the ONLY game with potential.
WHERE ARE THE GIFS!!!!! I wanna laugh my arse off :P
The chick dancing at the beginning looks good doing it. This sounds like a real dancing game. Can't wait to show everyone how to do the thriller!
I can see this game as being good. let's just hope the lag isn't that bad
Lol...Thriller will be a hit with Kinect.
yes.. that girl was good at moves.. from all the games for Kinect. I liked Dance Central.. looks good. hope I can learn some moves..
The best game they showed for Kinect. Everything else you could notice that when they were moving too quickly the lag was noticeable
They still had fun so who cares?
This probably won't be popular at all considering how few TV shows there are about dancing. I can't think of any. Having that Star Wars game probably won't help it either. I mean who would want to step into the shoes of a Jedi just to use force powers and swing a light saber? So silly.
this well be hit it looked good ill doubt theyre tracking all the moves you do. it mostly will be the key gestures in the dance move. dance central is on of the few games that showed something worth getting. not my cup of tea tho.
i'll stick to rock band harmonix, thanks, but no thanks. like those before me, i'd welcome a thriller dance though.
I liked the Dance game cause i used to be into the the Dance mat games.
