GamingUnion.net: "Many developers and analysts have spoken about Kinect's limitations, mainly because it has no buttons, and you can now add Team17 to that list."
There's a surprise. Hands up if you're still excited about Kinect?
Let me know when it gets games, then I might be excited. Meanwhile, I'll be playing real 360 and PS3 games. To all those companies out there telling us to "give it a shot" (Rare) let me know when you develop something good then MAYBE I'll dump $200 on a possible failure.
O right a nobody studio.
it looks like there learning from the ps3.
Team 17 tfw. Move ftw.
O right a nobody douchebag.
@GreenRingOfLife If you never played any of the Worms games, then you might as well call yourself a non-gamer and a nobody yourself.
Does this article give any of you a bit of Déjà vu?
Guessing that mention of Worms doesn't ring any bells...
That's such a predictable, dickhead thing to say. "These guys aren't well known, the can't know ANYTHING about hardware or making games." God forbid they might actually have a valid point when tossers like you cover their ears and scream so they can't hear what they have to say. Alien Breed is a brilliant game and is on XBLA. As is Worms.
"Team17 is still an independent games studio with around 75 staff members. This makes it one of the longest surviving independent developers, now into its 21st year (it turned 20 on Dec 5, 2009)" Yea nobodys /s
Team 17 have opened a can of worms here
@greendouchebag They however will most likely outlive Rare , a studio only one step away from from probable dissolution into the dashboard and live interface teams
But gawddamn, its entertaining to watch people try to play the games on that thing! hahaha!
Obvious troll...is obvious. Serious though you don't know who Team 17 is? I've had the opportunity to meet some of the developers and they're an amazing bunch. Very talented. Feel sorry for you if you don't know who they are.
nobody? what about you? a troll 1000X more a nobody to the industry than them! I think you got wormed in the brain!
first it was the ps3 with difficult to use hardware and limited exclusive games. Now the tables have turned and its the 360 with limited exclusive software and and difficult to use Natal hardware. My mind is offically boggled....>__<
Agreed as in who the hell is this one company?
What are you like 5 years old?
How do you not know these guys? Thats just a sad excuse Im sorry....
it shows you who knows nothing about videogames , and started only with the generic and most common popular franchises
wats jus as embarrassing is tha 9 or so hoes agreeing wit yall... WORMS is great times 4 me personally ; )
RedHemi300c was literally born yesterday.
this kid probably started gaming since the xbox era and now he's trying to act all big! how cute...
By that comment, you have proved you're a ten-year-old. Team17 made the Worms games, one of the funnest games I have ever played. You're probably trolling, but at least try harder in the future.
don't call people children and then write 'funnest'
Don't you like having fun? If you're being pedantic about the actual word, here: http://en.wiktionary.org/wi...
Given his (her?) track record, it's fair to say that GreenRingOfLife is a child. Posting ignorant comments that only fanboys would say. I mistyped one word, yes, I'm sorry, my bad.
it is, right? english is not my 1st language and I tried using Word and it's not there. so, maybe not but I think I got what you wanna say Shadow. WORM is a hell lot of fun! even after so many years, never got tired of it! still playing it constantly until now!
@StupidSega Better teach Steve Jobs some grammar http://www.blogcdn.com/www....
Four years later and they still cant program the install machine.
Is MS not allowing companies to make hybrid games for this device at launch? Something like when the 360 launched and it was a requirement that all games be at minimum 720p. I know the use of a controller and the kinect is possible. MS never said you couldnt do both but they are more talkative about the controller free vision. If a dev wants to make a game using both there should not be any penalty (unless there is a clause in the contract).
Sorry but I have to ask... why market an add on where "you are the controller!".... then say people also need to use a controller? That seems rather stupid to me personally.
If it delivers games that you dont need the controller for then it is correct in marketing. The use of a controller would then be an option depending on the game. It all depends on how aggressive the main companies want to implement their respected motion support in the games. Sony seems relaxed in that if you dont have move, no matter as you can play the games with a ds3. MS on the other hand is talking up the full body type games first and will bring in the half and half ones later. Games right now that require kinect as opposed to games that use move an an option I guess. I just am wondering if the launch will only consist of non controller supported kinect titles or will there be a few that go hand in hand.
They are talking about making Kinect+controller titles later, but then they say a lot of things. Just have to wait and see if their, and the general consumer, patience holds up. Would funny, and a bit sad, to see MS's own Kinect support fold overnight like it did for their cell phone. Especially considering all the build up an hype.
That's the main problem, making Kinect a supplement controller instead of a replacement, it causes problems like this. I remember when Project Natal was first theorized and we had discussions on something like Gears of War 3. Use the controller, but in certain sections you can use your hand gestures to navigate a map, or whatever. But now that's not possible unless MS just eats their words and allows developers to do both.
Kinect is a disaster. MS might as well cancel production now.
let the flame war begin!
let mortal kombat begin!
Team 17 make WORMS I believe, fun game.
It's about to get hot in here.
And Play with
The Truth Hurt uh??? ;D
I don`t see how Kinect wouldn`t give somebody a headache. I mean, I wouldn`t want to sit *ahem*...stand while holding my arms up in front of me the entire time I play. I tend to have less frequent, but long, and drawn-out gaming sessions as opposed to playing frequently in small increments, and I don`t see how Kinect would be relaxing, entertaining, or even fun for somebody like me.
Kinect is going to fizzle out pretty fast. Probably quicker than the Dreamcast. No way anybody's paying $150 for something with this much negative press.
team 17 go way back to the amiga days.. alien breed.. worms.. the list goes on.
Oh well. I have warned people a millions time and they refuse to listen. Kinect has huge limitations. I say this not as a fanboy or a Kinect hater but as a fellow gamer. If you think this is a step towards VR gaming you will be sorely disappointed
I'll gouge my eyes out, pop them up my butt, shit them out and insert them back into my eye sockets again.
To help gouge your eyes
So you can record it.
I'll send you a piece of paper with "LOL!" written on it, but you won't be able to see it.. Not until you put those 'shitty' eyes back :)
"It's a headache. Because there's no buttons. It's just, you are so limited." That's what I have been saying ALL along.
Well, of course you would say it Obama.. whatta surprise. But, it just doesn't quite mean as much when you say it. :)
Looks like Microsoft should spend more money on their hardware instead of bribing the media. Because it appears that a kinection error has occured between M$ and ... well, the rest of the gaming community!
Sorry to hear Team 17 does not have the vision or creative development to make a game for Kinect. They mention Worms in the article WTF? Like you would play that game with Kinect?!? Kinect is the next game evolutionary step in gaming in so many ways. Trolls and Flanboys will argue that is fine you are entitled to your opinion.
Where did it say Team 17 didn't have the vision or creative development? Kinect is limited without buttons. Even Halo and COD won't work with Kinect. Kinect might be fun to you but how long will that fun last when Kinect won't support the games you enjoy the most.
regardless of the kinect matters , claiming that team17 , after worms and other things lack creativity or vision is rather amusing , and sad at the same time .
The dodo was the next evolutionary step in birds too..
and quite tasty to some!
Not looking good at all for Kinect.
pot meet kettle
GreenRingOfLife you NOOB Team 17 was around b4 you got worms in your pants. years m8 dating back in the late 80's . you plonka
