Black and White 3 with Kinect?

#1 Posted by Pitta (185 posts) -

Am I the only one that thinks this would be awesome? B&W was always a neat game, but lacked total control. This type of game seems PERFECT for this. That, and Molynuex is in bed with MS, so this seems like a win/win? I'd LOVE to play that, and I know it would sell many Kinect add-ons if this game existed... 
 
Imagine grabbing peasants and skipping them across the water with your bare hands, or casting fireballs to torch villages with a real gesture incantation. Or smacking your pet Cow around! BOOM!

Yeah, well, that sounds like it might be cool. But Black & White still wouldn't have been a good game even if the controls were tight. There's nothing like resource management to make you feel really omni-impotent. Maybe with a shit ton more commands. But how do you teach the player those commands and make them intuitive.

@Ragdrazi: Could abstract the resource management and make the pet do most of it... Im just saying  game like that would be cool. Wouldn't have to follow the traditional B&W super rigidly or anything, just the godly type stuff...

@Pitta: Or they could just take out the resource management completely and have a much better game. 
 
I don't know. This actually might be a good idea.

I have to think they are at least thinking about it.... It seems like a perfect fit... the whole game was played with a virtual hand and no HUD.... i mean COMMON!

How do you control which peasant to pick up? Unless you'd just move a cursor around on the screen by waving at it...

Your hand would be the hand in the game. Have you ever played the game?

And in the stupid tiger game there are ghost hands that pet the cat.
