Watch a trailer of Child of Eden and it will look like nothing more than a prettier version of the cult-classic Rez. Play Child of Eden, and you'll realize the true potential of Kinect. It's an entirely different experience.
Don't think I'll get Kinect.
Give it a rest man at least mention the topic before you try and downplay Kinect which the topic happens to be about a game not the motion device lol. I can't wait for Child of Eden. No one came in here to hear some tool talk about how he's not getting Kinect yet seemingly trolls the article after checking it out. Post history http://n4g.com/user/home/rr...
Yeah it is a step backwards in user input. Lack of buttons hurts more than people are willing to realize.
Yup, then you look at the video and you realize this guy is most likely lying or had some technical difficulties. From the article: "I couldn't get the game to let me aim outside of a 1/4 screen-sized boundary in the middle of the screen." You can clearly see the guy in the above video using Kinect in a larger than 1/4 screen starting at 00:21. Check it out for yourself! Makes you wonder, how much truth and how much is fiction in that article from destructiod.com.
thats alot better then i thought it would be.
A little laggy, but much more responsive than I thought it would be with Kinect. I compare that to PS Move and I noticed similar lag in Ruse so I don't think lag will ever be eliminated if PS Move is the perfect Wii style motion controller.
than destructoid did.
Its interesting that when Kinect is added to a controller based game as an option its actually the superior option. @AceofStaves Well there probably won't be anymore to see since devs are choosing to makes from the ground up for Kinect instead of just tacking it onto games as an option.
One game isn't indicative of all the games, though. Why make such a broad-based assumption? Wouldn't it be better to actually see how several different games with both options play before generalizing like that?
@Omega4 this game looks great and probably plays better with kinect than a controller, but its still an on rails shooter and thats what worries me. The only game for kinect that has gamers excited (with actual gameplay) is an on rails shooter that still,even in the video, shows lag and might kill your arms from prolonged play. What else is there but on rails games for kinect and no matter how pretty they look or how good they play its still just that and I hope that's not the future of gaming.
You know what would make Child of Eden even MORE precise and fun? A motion controller!
If you have to play that game with an outstretched arm the whole time, that will get old real fast. The muscles in the arm aren't meant to be holding it up for an hour at a time. If there is a controller option, that might save it, not hinder it.
a interactive screen saver
Lag seems to have reduced but i'll avoid kinect and move (if i ever buy ps3). Looks tiring to play with arms stretched out. If i need excercise i'll hit the gym in my apt or swim the pool. Games i play to relax by laying on couch with a controller in my hand.
I clearly see the lag
WTF? Are you serious?
I want this game.
The game looks really good but if you watch the video closely you would see the lag and dips in frame rate he was talking about. Having something like that with Kinect will harm the gameplay. With a game like that you need the controls to be spot on. When moving your hand slowly it keeps up well but if you are moving fast the lag can be seen clearly.
Looks great. I can easily waste a few hours lost in this, especially after a few joints :) Pad for me though.
...but not sure about the accuracy of the controls. By in large the lag did not seem to be of concern its just how much aim assist is there for this to work. I guess its for the casual gamer so it looks like a winner in that respect. Sony needs something that looks this spectacular for Move.
You're fully aware that Child of Eden is coming out for Move, right?
No it's not, at least it's not confirmed. Child of Eden is coming to the PS3, but the developers only have a Kinect devkit for the motion controllers.
@Arnon I'm betting they got a Move kit the day they said that, it was since E3 if I'm not mistaken so a lot of time to implement a move version.
What do people NOT GET about wanting a 1:1 input? Fail.
Can't wait to play this with move!!!!!!!!!
i wanna try this with my kinect
maybe all of you are really lazy fad guys who never take a spoon to eat your food because it weights to much. Having options could be that bad? Is not like you will always be in the mood to play using kinect or move but to have the option i think in a lot of cases will be good not a bad thing!
on N4G Move is an option and Kinect is fail, there are no other acceptable opinions here. to the disagree have you been to the Kinect articles comment sections here on N4G? For shits and giggles just try stating that you are looking forward to Kinect and see what type of responses you get.
Its been announced with the dualshoch nut I have not seen anything that's official announced with move. Please show me?
i play my games after dark with the lights out which Kinect can't do. the Kinect is gonna be worse the Sega 32X
