Rise of Nightmares is upon us

Rise of Nightmares is upon us

Rise of Nightmares is a pretty surprising Kinect title. First, because it is destined to a mature audience, which is not usually the case when it comes to Kinect. And finally because for once, you get to control your character in first person view entirely, which includes moving and walking around. Until we get our copy of the game with SEGA and we can give you our impressions, here is a new promotional video.

Ok marketing, you do know your game isn't suposed to have self-conscious "bad" horror as HotD: Overkill, don't ya?

It doesn't use your avatar, it's first-person. And even if it had been third-person (what happened to the second person? Lol!) it still wouldn't use your avatar as you can see the character you play when you look in the mirror on the train. Plus avatars wouldn't exactly fit with the rest of the graphics would they?

OK, that's freaky, we literally posted at the exact same second, lol!

I didn't mean your 360 avatar. The character you play is, by definition, an avatar since it's not really you. ;p

I've changed it anyway, so it's clear to everyone. :)

When people use the term "avatar" when talking about games, especially Kinect games, they're normally referring to the avatar you create on the dashboard, so you can't blame me for thinking that you thought that the game used that sort of avatar.

I'm going to post the video review I posted in the chat window because I think it's actually a very important video. Not because it's a positive review but because it shows that the guy really "gets" Kinect. I don't know if he "got" Kinect previously but by the end of the review it's clear he understands at least some of the potential. I'm hoping that when people play Rise Of Nightmares (or even after watching the video) they'll "get" Kinect too if they haven't before.

You love Kinect too much :p

This is the best Kinect can do make slow with no feddback. Also the game should be played seated.

You can play the game in free roam or on rails. Its pretty damn good fun aswell which is no suprise coming from the House of the dead team.

According to the video review I posted you can actually play most of the game seated (on a swivel chair at least) and just have to stand up for certain parts.

About the game


What's up?
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Tiz: Gears of War: Judgement was a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, and was a great game in its own right. (13 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Phaethon360: I completely disagree with you. Gears 2 was shit, while Gears 3 was an excellent game. (14 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I still think the iOS UX is inferior to both stock android and several android launchers. (2 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind @KORNdog: I can understand the player count difference. But, frame rate? (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I got a killer deal on a 12.9" iPad Pro.. this thing is massive. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker By the way, was the rumor about Dark Souls 3 for Switch as part of a trilogy posted here? Interesting if true. DS on the go. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @crookedmind: there may be rare cases, but generally, no. Case in point, BF4. Player count was different, framerate was different. It wouldn't work. (3 Hours ago)
