So far, Kinect does not have any appealing titles to warrant a day-one purchase. It’s only through the promise of great games that this peripheral will have legs.
Meanwhile, they haven't promised jack shit. Wish for great games in one hand and shit in the other, see which one fills up first.
That's actually true. They've never really PROMISED any specific great game. They've just shown trailers were people do stuff that may or may not be possible to replicate in real-time.
I will hold my judgment until I get a chance to play it.
Honestly, I'm not motivated to get Kinect on day one. At least Capcom's bringing Steel Battalion...
Thought it was Fromsoft who did the first game? They're the only ones mental enough to make that control board.
Dan Wise unfortunally makes no sense.
Unforunally: A mix of Unfortunate and annual with a -ly suffix? This man has bent the laws of adverbs.
decent article, but I don't agree. Kinect is for family game night :-p Starcraft II or Halo Wars with Kinect would be awesome, but that won't happen.
Yah, brutal because people will hurt themselves jumping up and down like idiots.
I think people have said the same thing about the wii, and yet it has its own offerings. While they are slim compared to the sheer volume of shovel-ware titles, it can still hold its own. Metroid Prime Trilogy: Before you go off about playing it on Gamecube, it's perfect with the Wii controls. It's also arguably the best deal since The Orange Box. Zack and Wiki, Sin and Punishment Star Successor, No More Heroes 1 & 2, Tatsunoko vs Capcom, and a host of other games on the Wii Ware/Virtual Console. It has the goods. Suda51 is working on a new game for Kinect. Child of Eden from Q? is going to do all the right things that REZ did for the Dreamcast/PS2. And Sega has a survival horror game coming down the pipe. And Steel Batallion will definitely be an interesting entry.
There are plenty more amazing Wii titles than the ones you already listed.
The world could end in 2012 and people wouldn't even know it. BUT ITS HIGHLY UNFUCKINGLIKELY!
After being disappointed in motion control gaming for so long, I can't imagine anything that would make me excited for Kinect.
I'm looking forward to it, actually. Yeah, it may not have fantastic software at launch, but it's new gaming tech, and that's always good in my book. At least they're trying something new.
i don't think any console or accessory in the two decades i've been playing games had fantastic software at launch. yes there's kinectimals right now but at the tgs we got a peek at the direction some devs are going with it and that has me excited, not the launch tripe.
You can't get away from how empty the experience feels once the novelty wears off.Ask any Eyetoy player with a fair amount of experience.At the end to suggest Kinects viable future he pitches another game that would be better on Move with it's high accuracy and response.
I am giving Kinect and Move a chance before I am saying they are dead or amazing. All though I am getting Kinect on day one as it will be good for the kids I am looking forward to see what the developers can do with Kinect as it will make them think of different ways to play games just like the wii did. I am impress with Move too I think the hardware is very good but there are a lack of Move games that I want or the games I am going to get like KZ3 GT5 will all be better on the DS3 so I don't see the point of getting move at the moment in time but again once the devs work out ways to use Move to its best functions I will be picking up the device. I think the next half of this gen will be interesting with MS pushing Kinect and Sony Pushing move we are sure to see some amazing games on both platforms.
Where I am from describing something as brutal means its terrible. It changed the whole titles meaning for me.
There's a better product under development for PCs, called O3Di.
I don't deny the fact that the Kinect is aimed at families and kids, but there is great potential for some interesting games. The point I'm trying to make is that a certain game on the DS showed me that buttonless controls are feasible, and this particular game would be perfect for an HD TV. Like I said, lose the button monkey mentality. Also, @KingNintendoFanboy, I am aware that there are some other awesome games for the Wii, but those were the examples that came quickest to my head. The Wii, DS, and soon the 3DS are very legitimate systems for hardcore games.
