Finally some Hardcore Kinect games :D
No buttons = Still casual
No buttons?! How is that possible...
If there was one man to make a core, a kick ass, badass core game for kinect, it would be this man and his team of crack programmers. After No More Heros 1 & 2, I believe this is the one man to be able to do anything with motion controls. Get outta town if you disagree.
I have a feeling that it'll be an on rails game.
on rails seems like its starting to become the new fad...
There will probably never be any "hardcore" Kinect games because its just not possible with camera games. The Eyetoy couldn't do it, the PS Eye couldn't do it....what makes you think that the Kinect can? Camera games will always be limited which is why Dr. Marks and Sony has "moved" passed them. At best, Kinect will be added as some gimmick to a core game: like throwing a grenade in a shooter or head tracking in a racing game. But the main gameplay will be with a controller which really goes against MS's "you are the controller" mantra. Kinect only games will likely be limited to casual games in the foreseeable future.
I think the trick is to combine kinect with the standard controller. There's a lot of potential in kinect if you augment the traditional controller rather than replace it.
So basically you're advocating for a XBox 360 Move? I don't think the Kinect will be as cheap as $40 any time soon, so the 360 Move package will probably cost quite a bit. I doubt Microsoft with bite the bullet and make their own version of Playstation Move.
Time will tell. But, IMHO, if there were hardcore games to be made with Kinect, they would have one of them planned for its release.
So let them. Once again microsoft will prove how much a hold they have over their fanbase, it really starting to get ridiculous! I'm surprised Omega4 isn't on his job doing damage control, with some off the wall comment like "ju ju just wait until E3 20 when microsoft will show you SDF fanboi's who's king"! People have went from one major gaming conference, to another all the while saying the same thing. Oh just wait until Pax ehhh try again, gdc ehhh try again, tgs ehhh try again, e3 ehhh try again, and each time microsoft has burst major bubbles, and out of anger at microsoft, the die-hard microfanboi's deflect their anger at the sony fanbase to tear down their system of preference and its games, and then cry foul when the sony fans retaliate! Saying how so much worse the sony fans are than the xbox fans. Really it's a form of delusion in its own right, it called self fortification. The action of willing something into a physical manifestation by convincing the mind that it's real. EDIT: To be on topic. I for on hope that this truely is a hardcore title for kinects, then maybe there would be no reason for opposing forces to lash out at each other, but I guess that just wishful thinking on my part!
Can we get through just ONE TGS game announcement from MS without going into this crap??
How freakin embarrassing will be to play a ACTION game on Kinect?! Seriously KB is right to say "PEW PEW PEW". But oh well, i'll at least give it a try.
IT SEEMS LIKE KB PEW PEW PEW!! ALL OVER YOUR FACE
Steel Battalion game announced for Kinect.
Kinect enabled. You play it with a real controller with kinect features
Thats probably the smart way to do it though.
that it will have to use voice based commands. Since Kinect seems to have issues working with players standing (rumor, but not proven false), and no hardcore game should require standing, the only thing left is voice commands.
"fun and punky action game' also confirming that it will not feature guns or swords. Sorry No More Heroes fans. A trailer is said to have featured a character throwing baseballs at Mascots." Def sounds like a hardcore game to me /Sarcasm yuck come on show us something better well that screen shot looks interesting, i will wait for the trailer
Same thing I said and was thinking
Actually from what they're saying the game looks good. The trailer tooked place in a Carnaval and Monster's Wearing Mascot Masks were surrounding the main character then he Lit up a Baseball bat on Fire and started killing them. here's a screen . http://cdn.cloudfiles.mosso...
oh that does look interesting
WOW. Keiji Inafune loves the 360.
Capcom game right? This one looks good oh i thought it was a full pledge Kinect game, i guess there are parts where you can use it
IGN is literally in shock. lol
def the most interesting title, and having from software onboard should be good.
What makes it hardcore? "A trailer is said to have featured a character throwing baseballs at Mascots"
It's just a shame i can't see anyone ever doing that.
I guess MS was serious when they said the future of their gaming system was with Kinect. I'm curious to see how these new "hardcore" games turn out and what the reception is for them. Will the standard 360 owner stay with MS if they are only producing motion games, even if they are hardcore games? Will the mechanics make these games fun and non-repetitive? I hope so. If these hardcore games dont sell for Kinect, but the casual games do, expect the focus to continue to shift away from hardcore to casual. Project Draco is the game I am most interested in.
Not to sound disappointed but so far most of kinect titles are on rail games. Some have kinect features perhaps face tracking to allow movement of camera in Steel Battalion. But I fear most will played as on rail type gameplay.
Steel Battalion is coming back with kinect
The show is now over and they only announced stupid kinect games. What a shame
What's amazing is that with all the Kinect games thay announced they didn't play any of them live.
WTF?! Kinect, Kinect, Kinec, Kinect…! Screw you, MS! so this conf wont be as much of a disaster…
These announcements are what id call 'progress,' as far as the hardcore gamer is concerned. I mean, damn, at least its not more Kinectimals type sh!t. On topic: These new Kinect games look nice, plain and simple.
I'll laugh my f**king head off it it turns out to be some random casual type of game, haha!
Oh well we shall see how these hardcore games work out. Not sure how hardcore they can be unless Kinect can pick up quick motions. Wouldn't want to use a sword or gun unless they work accurately or effectively
Only Kinect games. LMAO!
