Miklós from Lazygamer.net pontificates about effective implementation of Microsoft's Kinect in Epic's Gears of War franchise.
"Of course, with that rumour-squashing tweet, many questioned IGN’s report. That report, however, said absolutely nothing about Gears of War 3 getting Kinect support, but rather that a Kinect Gears of War project would be announced at Spike TV’s Video Game Awards. The mere mention of Kinect infiltrating Epic’s venerable franchise was enough to start fanboys and girls whinging about how it would have no place in the third-person shooter. They’re probably right. I too find it a little hard to wrap my head around how Epic would integrate the motion-sensing peripheral in a meaningful way rather than a gimmicky one. That negative sentiment, however, is intrinsically linked to Gears of War being a cover-based shooter, but what if it wasn’t a shooter at all?"
