Planetxbox360: Today, Microsoft Corp. and the industry’s leading Japanese storytellers showcased 10 transformative games, including five exclusive titles for Kinect for Xbox 360 by SUDA 51, Capcom, From Software, Sega and Panzer Dragoon Creator.
Good, but KILLER? Hardly.
It's a start. If the gameplay is fun, I'm sure people can start viewing it as a 'killer' lineup. TBH, I didn't expect them to have any games appeal to the core, but atleast they are trying.. and for that I'm willing to listen.
Agreed. I'm skeptical, but at least they are trying. You can't say "Screw you for not trying" and then say "screw you anyways". I'm not expecting anything "killer" but I'd hope for them to try.
I agree, glad they're trying. But, nothing will change my mind until I see gameplay that says 'core gamer'. All of these games look to be in the distant future. Edit: I will say... at least Microsoft showed new games. So far, Sony's conference is boring the hell out of me with news we've known since E3 and GC. The amount of time they're spending on the damn SE PSP for MH3 isn't helping me stay awake. Edit 2: Great, as soon as they get to the software section, the video portion of the live stream goes out.
I'm in the same boat. I'm glad they're trying, and honestly, I think it would be cool if they kept the core games on kinect controller based, but with added body movement controls for certain points in the game and neat little features.
@cgoodno Thats because they already revealed most of their upcoming(2011) games
There were actually some Kinect titles in there that sounded interesting. Haunt, Codename D and Rise of Nightmares have all peaked my interest in Kinect. What sucks about that is that even if I wanted Kinect, I don't have enough room in my living room to play it without rearranging furniture each time I want to play something, and that simply is not going to happen. Hopefully at least one of my buddies will get Kinect and one of these so I can give it a try - but at this stage I can't really see that happening. They're more Halo/Gears type gamers then Kinect type gamers.
“Radiant Silvergun” (Treasure, Microsoft Game Studios). The classic scrolling shooter from Japan and spiritual successor to the critically acclaimed “Ikaruga” receives an international release in this revival on Xbox LIVE Arcade on Xbox 360, the first ever since SEGA Saturn. “Radiant Silvergun” will see the return of the unique seven-weapon system among other fan-favorite gameplay features, as well as improvements, including the addition of a new system to enhance the challenging original chain system." ...falls over in chair...
Those Kinect games look at least interesting. It may not be a killer list of games, but to me it seems at least good. Being a "hardcore gamer", at least now Im slightly inclided to actually buy Kinect.
Why?What do you know about those games?They could all be crap.
"Pew pew pew" at the bad guys on screen. If that floats your boat, get Kinect!
so have they announced these games with no videos or screen shots? the term "bollocks" comes to mind!
Are these 5 games announced for kinect on rails?
...it's most definitely a good start,i've actually craved a new steel battalion for aaaaaages.....still got my massive controller and everything..XD
Some of the games sound kinda good, but I'd rather reserve hype until I see something on those games. This part made me laugh pretty hard though: “METAL GEAR SOLID: RISING” will star Raiden, one of the most popular characters in the “METAL GEAR SOLID” universe"
"This part made me laugh pretty hard though: “METAL GEAR SOLID: RISING” will star Raiden, one of the most popular characters in the “METAL GEAR SOLID” universe" " who would of thought.
You've gotta consider the source. PlanetXbox360 tends to swing on the nuts of anything Xbox-related. I've been very critical of Kinect (and Move), but I'd agree on "good". At least they finally proved they're trying to do something for the core gamers, instead of just spinning the ultra casual stuff as core experiences.
I wouldn't say killer i would say great at best
I got mark as trolling nice lol I love you guys
LOL some people are just too sensitive.
i think the MS crew knew they had botched up their image a lot by force feeding so much casual crap for kinect during e3/germany show, so they had to bring out something to shut up the most vocal haters.
should have titled it that way so it wouldn't be misleading.
I would hardly call a SUDA51 title, a horror game, a Steel Battalion game, and a Treasure shooter "casual".
Microsoft has got a lot of talent working on the games for Kinect. Should be good.
Microsoft has ALL of its talent (resources) working for Kinect...what about my 360? Shame shame.
We need to see more before we pass judgement. The games could be good but it could end up like new Dante.
Am very impressed with what MGS is showing-off for hardcore gamers and the Kinect hardware, 2011 will be interesting to say the least!
But meh, w/e
This lineup sounds good on paper.
Good to see, it's a start that's for sure.
We this is the start of the Kinect big games keep them comming MS. I really do think they will have a winner with Kinect once xmas is over but only time will tell.
"killer"... over stated.. good and interesting I would say... exclusive titles for Kinet...... please
pretty much >"attached image" =P clicked on title and got vastly underwhelmed expected Crytek exclusive or something,not...this still, lots of eggs in the Kinect basket!
to be the ones who might be able to save Kinect. I wan't impressed before, but now I'm intrigued.
When 'core' games are finally shown, those people are STILL bitching. SMFH, get over yourselves.
They may have a "core game" theme, but the jury is still out on creating core game gameplay experiences.
I'm sure that's not how everyone was talking; That was a logical statement as opposed to others' spew of pure hate. Most simply state, casual this and casual that, when it hasn't even launched yet. That's was my point.
No they don't
"“METAL GEAR SOLID: RISING” will star Raiden, one of the most popular characters in the “METAL GEAR SOLID” universe" Yeah...
Only one of the ten games apears to be remotely enjoyable. MGS Rising, all of the others apears to be spamware for Kinect.
It'll be interesting to see what From Software comes up with. They're the ones behind Demon's Souls and 3D Dot Game Heroes, two of the most awesomely unique games on the PS3 (Demon's Souls is in my top 5 favorite games ever).
Microsoft definitely impressed with their list of upcoming games. How good these games turn out to be is what I am most interested in.
man is that title hilarious Killer line up, must be in referance to killing the brand
