Kinect Sports UC : Launch Trailer

Kinect Sports UC : Launch Trailer

Kinect Sports Ultimate Collection was released this month in total indifference. However the compilation featuring the first two Kinect Sports is very interesting for those who haven't yet move their bodies by playing the 13 sports offered.

Is it worth it for the 40 seconds of entertainment each sport brings before the gimmick realisation kick s in? Okay okay I'm doing the typical thing of ripping on Kinect but I'm well justified.
I have a friend, who played Eyepet at a convention and "complained" the way the pet draws whatever you draw on a sheet of paper. He said "lol this is stupid, so if I draw a penis shaped car he draws it? That is stupid." I tried to explain to him "Yes you draw ANYTHING and the pet draws it and turns it into a car or a plane or whatever".
Yet he thinks Kinect is "acceptable". My argument was in the running race that the Mii avatar character does. I said "So if I do a handstand and run on the spot in front of the camera, the character in the game does that too...? What's that....no he doesn't?? He just keeps running doing a preprogrammed animation run that only picks up my movement and makes the onscreen character run? FAIL." That is one of my biggest problems with Kinect, the lies of its 1:1 motion detection that 95% of the schmucks with it believe.

    GriftGFX It's always produced really good visuals (still does), but I'm not sure if it was ever efficient. Unreal has always seemed more well rounded. (12 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX @asdfg: Id too. But was Cryengine ever actually good? (13 minutes ago)

    droezelke @asdfg: But it ran like shit when Crysis 3 was released. That was with the latest version at that time. (15 minutes ago)

    MrWhite @KORNdog: Yeah, source material would be to blame for that, but I'm sure if DICE were allowed creative licence, they could invent new stuff to make it work. (1 Hour ago)
  • asdfg
    asdfg Hence why it runs like shit these days. (1 Hour ago)
  • asdfg
    asdfg @droezelke: someone on Reddit wrote that alot of the key people working on cryengine had gone to the star citizen dev. Don't know how much truth is in that statement though. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: that would be quite cool as a themed map pack or something for a future based BF game. but not sure it would have enough variety for a full game. (1 Hour ago)
