360 Magazine: Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor is From Software’s chance to prove Kinect can offer gamers more than dance titles and cuddly pets, but will anyone care?
My chronic arm pain wouldn't exist without Kinect, either.
Don't blame kinect for being out of shape.
His body was not ready. Enough repetitive motions like these shitty games have could probably hurt anyone though.
As long as it works properly without me having to shout at it or wave my arm in front of it for ten seconds, i'll be interested.
And Kinect would not exist without a vast misunderstanding of what videogames are.
Then how did the first Steel Battalion game exist without Kinect?
i would rather have that than kinect
Then why isn't it played 100% with Kinect?
Does it need to be 100% Kinect in order for the title to be true?
Yes, it does. The statement doesn't make sense to me. Something utilized 30% of the time in-game is the reason said game exists? That's bullshit imo.
Do you recall the big controller for the original Steel Battalion? From the gameplay vid I saw, Kinect seemed to utilize enough important control inputs to make the hybrid nature feel fluid enough. I honestly don't see this statement as BS, unless we're inclined to believe MS would be bringing back that old controller. Kinect doesn't have be used 100% in order for it to be relevant; that's...the whole point of hybrid games to begin with. Developers are attempting (success and failure is for another discussion) to display the pros of the device without losing the 1:1 input of a controller.
Why didn't they just make a true sequel to the first and release a new cockpit? Kinect sucks.
Manufacturing the joystick bundled with Steel Battalion was expensive and seriously hindered the games ability to get into peoples hands. Pretty simple stuff.
I have a Kinect but it would be nice to see a controller option too.
Something they need to do with all the kinect games! They could do so much with kinect if also used with the controller. Using it to lean or look around in FPS games would be great! Maybe we'll see stuff like that next gen?
Then that begs the question to me, why even require kinect in the first place, if you have to use a standard controller to play it? People don't use move and a dualshock 3 together, at least you should have a nav controller by now.
@slugboss If Kinect games are shitty I'm then PS move games have severe diarrhea. i'm talking running down the leg shitty....lol On a serious note. Sony would do anything to have their own Kinect...that is if they can afford it.
Actually sony already passed on kinetic a long time ago.
