Ryse
« on: June 07, 2011, 08:03:51 PM »
Okay, when Nintendo Wii came out, what was your first thought? If it was anything other then "I wanna fuck someone up!" then you were probably not phased at all that it took them a year of dicking around with totally non-violent gimmicky time wasters before they took an actual decent crack at giving you motion controlled ass kicking. And they still haven't nailed it yet.

So when the Kinect came out, what was your first thought? If you were like me and pretty much everyone else who got snubbed by the Nintendo Wii, you had exactly the same thoughts involving people, your fists, and the many ways to bring them together, possibly involving sharp things as well. And like the Wii, it didn't happen...

...

UNTIL NOW! =D

It'll be murder on my neck, and the kicking is guna take a bit to get used to, but I'm saving for a bigger TV screen and rearranging my lounge room just for this game :)

I didn't see this one and I'm pretty video'd out today, but if it's anything like the Star Wars Kinect I can write off ever getting one. That thing was so dodgy, slow, and boring.

Nah man, it's clearly a CGI trailer, but it shows off some of the gameplay we could expect. No telling if the actual game will work like the trailer, but that's CGI for ya.

And yeah, I saw the Star Wars Kinect playthrough... I dunno what was more boring, that or Duke Nukem Forever.

I've learned not to trust yon CGI sorcery. If two CGI cut-scenes had a child Peter M. would be that child.

If they actually make the gameplay that interesting, I will be getting one. It is that simple.

The biggest problem with the Kinect is... kind of hard to get around. Its 'buttonless gaming'. Theres a lot they can do with the voice recognition, face mapping, body movement, but... without buttons, making conventional video games is going to be hard without a control stick for movement. Theres a reason its only had party games and on rails shooters.

I'm sure they COULD work out a traditional game, like Fable 3 or Halo or whatever without resorted to retarded stuff like 'lean left to move left' but like the Wii, they may decide its just easier to play it safe and stick to the cash cow sports compilations.

Playing the Xbox? or Ryse?

I've already played the xbox. I came to the conclusion I royally blow at L4d2 on console. Im suck a computer gamer, it took me awhile to figure out the controls.

Ryse. Thats a trailer from E3, a launch one too, so the game has only just now popped up on the radar. We probably won't even see real gameplay for a few months, let alone get to try it.

My first thought for ease of movement: proximity-based movement controls. As in, when you start up the game, it takes a read on where you're standing as "stationary." Take a half-step forward and stay there to be in the "walk forward" position, or a full step to be in "run forward;" the game keeps you walking/running until you step back to "stationary" again. Seems easier than leaning in that direction as long as you want to move that way.

Close quarters acrobatic movement is still a problem, though, since your character would only be as athletic as the player when it comes to how fast you can strafe and dodge using that kind of movement system, which kinda defeats the purpose of playing a game involving a character who's supposed to be much more capable than you are, ne?
