These new shots for Microsoft's Kinect, though, are especially great, because not only do they feature people trying to look silly flailing around their living room, but they feature what must be the most amazing group share house in world history.
not me, im not touching it.
haha, good one. Anyone using motion controls looks silly.
tell me about it http://www.youtube.com/watc...
this begs to differ http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Dude that girls face is a little rough. Buttaface for sure.
"butt" indeed. dat ass
I don't give a crap what it makes me look like...as long as I'm having fun. If people have nothing better to do than to watch/critcize me while I play a game, thats THEIR issue...not mine. @The Meerkat- Thats the problem with society. Everyones so concerned about what other RANDOM people think about them. Pretty pathetic stuff right there. "I`m not insecure. Kinect just doesn`t look like much fun, it looks like more of a chore." So your judging Kinect based on how it "looks"..but not how it plays? WOOOOW
Yes, I haven`t played it yet. If I like it I`ll buy it. But it`s pretty unlikely since it *looks* like a chore. And yes your correct I and what I say is the main problem with society.
I think it'll do well with casuals. That dance game whatever it's called is likely to be a hit with casual gamers who love that kind of game which BTW seems to be very well put together.
"So your judging Kinect based on how it "looks"..but not how it plays? " I don't have to try masturbating with a cheese grater to know it's no fun. I agree with the comments above. Kinect doesn't look like fun. I can hop in front of my TV without Kinect for 5 minutes and say "Ok. Now imagine that with a game in front of me" and get the gist of it. Just not my thing. Even watching people play Kinect makes me want to turn away, grab a controller and dive into a game of Demon's Souls to forget what I've just seen.
@ Davoh 99.9% of the people who have a 360 and kinect won't have a slim body allowing them to execute all the fancy moves.
Its sad that so many people are so selfconscious in their own homes.
Agreed. The whole world may look silly. But its only the ones who are insecure with themselves that would let that fact stop them from having fun. (and if you click disagree, then yes I am talking about YOU Mr Insecure)
I`m not insecure. Kinect just doesn`t look like much fun, it looks like more of a chore.
I couldn't agree more. I mean, Kinect doesn't look like something I'm interested in, but if it was, I wouldn't let me looking stupid while playing it be an issue for me. If you're not willing to have fun while playing games, why play games in the first place? As if video games have ever been about "looking cool".
kinect reminds me too much of sci3nt0l0gy...
I have never heard a comparison that makes less sense.
Kinect reminds me of Avatar, both do depth, both look good in picture... both when it comes down to it is boring and really ads nothing to each respective genre, with Avatar being a waste of money and Natal being a waste of money which could be invested better into first party studios.
they are both silly? ;) or fucking rubbish if you'd like-.
Didn't the whole world look silly playing the Wii? Yet, here we are with the Move. And how is this different then the uber popular DDR and other dance games that came out years ago?
Most of the Wii's big sellers don't involve waving your arms and looking silly. That's why that argument died as fast as it did.
Guess you never played Wii Sports then huh? Boxing made you look like a total goof ball.
Oh yeah! Because Wii Sports was not bundled with the Wii and people rushed out to go pick it up.
This is how they marketed the Wii. People like silly.
I could care less if I look like a fool playing it. I look retarded when I take a sh*t, but it's something I gotta do, like a chore. Which is where Kinect also comes in. Although I'll look silly, it's not that I'd be worried about. It would be the latency, glitchiness, expenses and fun. It looks as if you really have to overwork it to make sure it reads you. I would rather it be precise. Then there's the glitch-like twitching that characters do on screen. I'm beginning to think that is the last problem on MS's mind. The expense speaks for itself and the fun doesn't look that fun... other than maybe Dance Central. They're making a big deal out of holding your hands out to do a command when I've been holding my hand out to change the channel for decades now. It doesn't change the actions I'm doing much. It just makes the screen more cluttered with commands I could be accessing with a remote.
I have a feeling that whoever plays Kinect will make sure all of the blinds are down when they play.
too bad you have to open the window to get enough free space in front of the tv /s you'd also need sunlight for the camera to work.....
Not to mention the huge crowd that walks by everyone's houses/lofts/apartments and stops to stare inside for hours and hours. C'MON PEOPLE! These articles are way too many and far too stupid. People can do whatever they want behind close doors. I suspect there is far sillier shit we have no idea our neighbors are doing.
Al Bundy? Isn't that how you roll on a daily basis? With the blinds down so nobody see's you waxing your nob to UC2's graphics? j/k The majority of us couldn't care less about what others think. Low self-esteem there Bundy? :( I'm sure RDR & yourself can't wait to wave around two glowing pink dildo sticks in a fighting game though. Now that's what i call cooooooooooooooooool.
Who fucking cares? If a game is fun, I will play it. I don't understand why people are self-conscious about PLAYING VIDEO GAMES. It's never been a "cool thing", you guys. Plus, if you are self-conscious, you're in your own house- who gives a fuck what do you?| That said, I'm still not impressed by kinect, and I won't buy it, But not because "I won't look cool with it".
holding a pink glowing dildo in your hands???
if you're hungry you'll see the sun like a huge muffin .. and the moon like a margarita pizza .. only if youre hungre :) !
Pink? aww is that your faviourite colour? I'm not sure why else you'd mentain pink since the PS Move actually features all the colours in the rainbow. :)
It makes me laugh when so many excuses are made for these devices.Looking stupid is just one of many problems with the Kinect. `Sure I look like @$$ in tight clothes, swinging invisible obiects,doing gestures that have nothing to do with the game i am playing,having to adapt to obvious lag, leaping around like a monkey, playing games that look and control like crap but I had 'fun' '. What makes me laugh the most is that 90% of the people who jump to defend the Kinect are not going to buy one and the ones that do will play it for 20 mins before they go to see what's on television. Even worse the people who defend it are the first people to get angry and call everyone names when ever we laugh at the Kinect. If you can't control your anger and can't take a joke now just imagine the fit you'll throw if anyone laughs at you playing the Kinect
We all said that about the Wii, did we not?
Looks like you'll burn more calories with Kinect than with the Wii.
Please leave the Wii out of this.One because the Wi is still a piece of crap even after all this time and two, no game on the Wii or the Move makes you look as stupid as you do with the Kinect. Do you guys qatch the videos especially the Sonic ones? Tell me you can truthfully say you will do this in front of your friends and family without shame? This is the same reason Dance Dance Revalution died out.
I can see people suing MS when they keel over or fall into their TV sets LOL
