The only reason I accept any possibility of that is because there's so much anti-Kinect bias that some people would call a Kinect game "the worst game ever!" even if it was the best game ever. It's shocking that some people who are supposed to be videogame experts can't even set up Kinect properly let alone play games with it properly. There are some things Microsoft could do to help some ignorant people though (ignorant in both the "stupid" sense and in the "innocently unaware" sense) like making it mandatory that the first screen in all Kinect games (and in all future Kinect installation software) tells people that they NEED to switch on "Game Mode" or equivalent if their TV has it and that they MUST have their Xbox 360's video output connected directly to the TV and NOT via a separate AV reciever (other than possibly a basic splitter box if they need one) so that they don't get a lot of extra lag in games. Anybody who claims that there's "significant lag" *cough*Gamespot*cough* in certain games like Michael Jackson: The Experience or Child Of Eden for example are either just lying or haven't done what I just said. (Or have some other problem affecting things.)

No they're not. It may not have Crysis 2 quality graphics but it's in the style of House Of The Dead, probably because it's from the same team, and the graphics are no worse (in fact I'm pretty sure they're better) than House Of The Dead 4 which is a current-gen game although it hasn't actually been released on any consoles yet. Kinect uses some of the Xbox 360's processing power so most games, at least the ones featuring full body tracking, will most likely have less impressive graphics than non-Kinect games.

Why don't you explain why then? What makes it so bad? Is it because baby can't push his buttons or shake his rattle? LMAO! It's WOW, a highly acclaimed JAPANESE Sega team, making this.

If you'd just pull your dick out of kinects ass for just one second, you'd realise i never once critisised the game for using kinect. My Comments here based on what i'm seeing, at what i'm seeing looks awful. Dont be so quick to defend your beloved kinect, it makes you look moronic. Thanks.

no that award goes to silent hill, but I still dont se why devs think they can get the easy way out and not work so much on the graphics, they have the friggin tech!!!!, lazy if you ask me, quick buck.

That zombie nurse is fuck** hot !!!!!!!!!!!

And yet you still don't explain why you think it looks "downright awful". So I'll explain why I'm looking forward to it and think it will be great. Just by what's been shown so far and not even including the other stuff mentioned in Sega's description (traps and puzzles) it's like a free-movement, melee combat (with some weapons that can be thrown) version of the the House Of The Dead games, which were great, and it's even being made by the same team. It uses uses full body tracking (although I'm not sure about ducking, I don't think I've seen that in any videos) for movement and combat so it will be an even more immersive experience than playing a House Of The Dead game with a lightgun. Those are the reasons why I'm very excited for this game and can't wait for it to be released. I'm quick to defend Kinect because so many RETARDS are so quick to attack it and spread FUD in what can only be described as hate campaigns and those people clearly don't give a damn about the progress of videogaming and can't honestly call themselves "hardcore gamers".

Let's have a look at a quote from you about Silent Hill 5:
Posted by ManThatYouFear
First of all it is still in the making
Second of all its been made by a diffrent team
Third of all the "noise" effect has not been placed on yet (going by all previous games thaty all looked drab, but the noise effect made them a lot more appealing)
Fourth its not in motion, and the video i have see in motion look splendour :D


Please the whole " this looks shit the textures are lame blah blah blah" do you not see that this is the whole reason the industry is going like it is, when people dont really care for how it plays and if its you know "fun", the industry is that scared trying to impress you with its visuals they dont have time/money left for the important things like "fun" and "intresting"
True we could look in the Wii corner and see the complete opposite, where what we...well me at least want to see is something in the middle yes i want immersive graphics, but that does not mean i want realistic graphics, if i want realistic i will look around at the trees in my local forest while jogging and pretend i am running from hordes of alien/monsters/nazis, not that i will though due to i dont want to be placed in a mental home ...not just yet anyway.

As for the scare factor, *sigh* has no one learned from the movies or games of past ? the visuals dont scare, its the execution of the scare that scares, the only time i was not scared in DOOM 3 was when i was shooting .. but the silent parts ...

But it does look meh though, really does, not in the visual way i dont expect genius work on every game, but been as though in that last picture and the fact he has had his hand cut off, he does not seem to bothered lol, hell he looks like he is calmly having a shit :)
"but this just looks meh" just because the word "look" is there it does not mean i am on about its visuals, the game is Kinect, which i am still not sold on yet, and it will take a damn sight more to get intrested in it than this, specially on how much it costs
it's on rails... its probally better than that fable journeys, which probally will end up been a decent rental if you have kinect, but lets be fair, fable is degrading fast.
hell the selling point of rail shooters in the past was the fact they visual beasts, along with fighting games, due to lack of... well everything from physics to ai..hell even clipping was not a issue..
Kinect uses some power you say? wow.. it must really eat it up if this is the shape of things to come
Its SEGA.. what have they done recently that should give me faith in there product? last decent game they made was condemned.. and they was only the bloody publisher, i have no faith in this company anymore, there the next midway.

this will most likely be full price game same as Fable journeys.
This will most likely be single player only, at least on good old light gun based rail shooter you could steal each others kills for points :D

If that guys face is anything to go by, then i cant see scares been executed well in this, i can see it been a bland "boo" game.

And to be fair Silent Hill is a very well established franchise that really did not have to prove anything, it knew its shit.. apparantly though, the american devs did not :(

i stand by that this game looks meh, it gives me a nightmare creatures vibe... and that aint good.

good for you to stick up for the little devs though all the respect, but this one dont float my boat.. tell them to shout me when they got decent video showing off something special..

PS: dont go through my old posts dude.. thats creepier than this game will ever be.

It's not on-rails, it's totally free-movement. See, you don't even know how the game works. You probably don't even know how Kinect itself works. And there are plenty of videos of the demo and a gameplay trailer. Fable: The Journey isn't on-rails either, they just put a section of the demo on-rails for presentation purposes but Peter Molyneux immediately regretted it and even made a video apologising for doing it. Kinect is as important to the future of videogames as the 32bit consoles were (not including the 3DO or Amiga CD32, lol!) when games shifted from mostly 2D to mostly 3D. Anybody who can't see that should never even consider becoming a game designer.

Kinect uses some CPU power but I'm sure it depends on what is being done with Kinect since Forza 4 uses Kinect and that's got some of the best graphics of this generation. Also Rise Of Nightmares has been in production for well over a year so Sega probably didn't know exactly how much CPU power the finished Kinect would use so were a bit conservative with the graphics just to be on the safe side.

What have Sega done lately? LMAO! How about Virtua Fighter 5, Virtua Tennis 3 & 4 (OK, the Motion Mode is disappointing in VT4, not that it's Kinect's fault since it's just an exact port of the Move version including its stupid timing system for directional control which makes no sense), various Sonic games, House Of The Dead 4 (arcade, hopefully a port will eventually be released), House Of The Dead: Overkill (Wii and going to PS3, hopefully an Xbox 360 version will eventually be released), the Yakuza series (I haven't played them as I don't have a PS3 but I've heard they're great games), Resonance Of Fate, Bayonetta, Vanquish and loads of other games that unfortunately aren't on the Xbox 360. Those are just off the top of my head. Sure, Sega aren't as good as they used to be but I guess that's what happens when other companies play dirty and the head of the company dies all culminating into having to leave the console hardware business and go multi-platform. (They should have gone Xbox exclusive so that they could focus all their energy on one console like they previously had, rather than selling out to their former rivals.)
Commented on 2011-07-31 03:03:28
First, i hated pretty much all them games, specially bayonetta all the half decent games you mentioned were sequals to far serpiour games... but you put sonic in that list? you fucking mad? he sucked for almost two generations n.
As i said, tell them to shout me when its got a video showing something decent off.. until then it looks like a on rails kinda game, and i will contiune to assume that until they release a video.. and if there is one on the net, fuck hunting it down, i'm not that intrested.

As for kinect Wii Motion and Move i will say this, this will hurt because i can see your pretty defensive about it.. but I personally dont like it YET i can see it's purpose and it can offer some great things, from mario galaxy to mere ideas like eye pet(patched), not the best examples i know.. ok erm, try Kinect is the only way you could make a game teaching people how to do sign language accuratly (just a thought) when it comes to things like that, it could really work, but that wont happen, no nothing intresting or usefull will become of it, just kinect sports 3 by the destroyed Rare Ware.
BUT, i.dont.like.it. you have to take into account, i spend most the day working my bollox off stressed off my tits, i come home and do my weights have shower then dinner, by this time it's 8ish been up since 6 in the morning..now why in the right mind would i want to jump around or swing sticks around, i have 0 energy left and most times have not got the energy to get up and get my pad..
you have to understand its not for everyone, i can see why people absolutly fucking hate it, but i can see why others love it, to say its the future and as important as the change from 2d to 3d, to be fair, your reaching there you really are.. specially when devs refuse to have both kinect and the pad work together...
When i am playing a rainbow six game using my pad, and all i have to do is raise my hand (and i dont mean like you know the answer to a fucking question at school..) and my team stops
THEN colour me intrested, hybrid the shit or i am not intrested.

And if a game is shown of on rails, how is that the consumers fault for thinking its on rails o.0 it was not what i wanted so why look further into it..

I read the preview in the actual issue of german MAN!AC (2 days old) and they say it's trashy but with a lot of charme. It has some Kinect-Delay but otherwise they like the controls and ideas. Oh and the nurses have bouncing breasts, I like that!

Dead Island on the other hand didn't get that much of a good preview, they had a lot to criticize ... I fear the worst 2 months from release for that one - sorry 4 off-topic.
Commented on 2011-07-31 11:42:46
From the gameplay i've seen it looks like complete and utter ass. The visuals are lackluster both technically and from a design point of view (i mena really, who here finds those enmies creepy at all?), the action seems pretty bad and other than that it just seems like a crappy point-and-cick type of del with annoying controls.

I hope that preview is wrong or had a bad build as I'm really looking forward to Dead Island. (And it looks like it would be a great game to make a Kinect-controlled sequel to! ;) :D )

    KORNdog it's the reason why the PS pro can't exceed the targeted framerates of the base console, even if it is more capable. it would create unfair advantaged. hell, you could argue it does already (0 minute ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @crookedmind: higher framerates = more responsive controls. pitting someone with a 25-30 fps version of BF4 with someone with a 50-60 fps version of BF4 would be pretty unfair. (2 minutes ago)
