Here is a 15 minute quicklook. It's 100% kinect controlled so theres that.

Shame it's stuck on the One. Not looking forward to the wave of exclusives that are about to come out over the next few years.

That looks fucking crazy.. I can't wait to see how Year Two looks with all these weird games coming out. And then ID@Xbox Should be out by then.

Its weird that people want interesting things for the Kinect before they'll play it, but hate it when interesting things come out for it. I guess it'll just take a bunch of interesting things before it goes away.

looks interesting

@jz: Deadly Premonition wasn't published by Microsoft like D4 is, likelihood of it coming out on the PS4 isn't that great. Also, pretty sure you can use a controller for this game, remember hearing that Swery said something about not everyone being able to use Kinect in their house so he added controller support.

Endurance Run?

#11 Posted by JZ (2125 posts) -

@brendan: well it's more like a controller works, it's not even a thing to worry about. The problem with this is does the kinect work? Will it work in my house? Do I need the right lighting or space, all that crap.

#12 Posted by phantomzxro (1577 posts) -

It does but the over use of kinect gestures kinda kills it for me.

#13 Posted by crusader8463 (14422 posts) -

@jz: This isn't dp.

Swery is so awesome. Hope the game ends up on other platforms at some point.

You should boycott Swery, and then petition to get D4 on PS4. KNOW YOUR UTENSILS!

#16 Posted by shivermetimbers (774 posts) -

I need this in my life. Sadly I don't want an Xbox One.

I think you're right. I need to bring the ruckus to get what I want.

Well petitions always work, didn't you hear?! Its okay for one side have nice things, but not for the other. That's how this goes.

@brendan: Yep. It's strange how different people have different opinions. It's double strange when people see the game and their opinion changes! I have no idea what this phenomenon is called but it happens a lot on the internet.

That's the thing, I don't even know any more. Did SWERY start off bad and we all liked him for irony's sake and now he's become self aware and is leaning into it? Or is it just plain bad, like for real bad, like 'this toon shader and voice acting ain't covering up anything', bad. Because damn I'm confused. There's only so far I can go down the 'it's so bad it's good' rabbit hole and I don't know about this one...I don't think I can go through life wondering if games are intentionally wink wink, nudge nudge bad or just straight up bad.

'Who's Bad?'

#29 Posted by BBAlpert (1477 posts) -

Even though he doesn't work for Nintendo, I love that Swery is keeping up Miyamoto and Iwata's tradition of adorable Japanese game developers. That's not to say that Japan has a monopoly in that sector, the West has some strong contenders.

#30 Edited by xyzygy (9997 posts) -

The kinect controls actually look good because this is an investigation game. The motions seem to work very well and the game looks weird as fuck, possibly even weirder than DP, so I'm stoked.

#31 Posted by BlackLagoon (1436 posts) -

This is probably the most intriguing game on the Xbox One for me, so having jumped on the PS4 train I'm sad I likely won't get to play it. Good on Microsoft for giving Swery money to go nuts at least, hopefully GB will give the game some solid coverage.

hahah.. why do I imagine no one says anything is "Stuck on the PS4". Warz!

#33 Posted by JZ (2125 posts) -

@artisanbreads: because the ps4 is the most feel good console ever, and the one is pure evil.

haha right. And Ryse is the best looking launch game.

Oh well though, like I said console warz.

Not to derail the thread, this looks really interesting. Swery learning where he should be going with his gameplay is nice.

#35 Edited by BoOzak (923 posts) -

As long as i'm not forced to stand up I dont mind using kinect 2.0. It doesnt look like an action game so it should be alright. I skipped through the video because I didnt want to spoil anything but the graphics seem a lot better than DP.

#36 Posted by Vanick (332 posts) -

This looks really dumb in a really great way. The Kinect stuff looked like it worked pretty well. I liked that to select something you made a fist like your grabbing it instead of just holding your hand over it like on the original Kinect.

#37 Edited by falserelic (5437 posts) -

I'll admit it does look interesting, but only time will tell.

#39 Posted by Damodar (1393 posts) -

Ok, I'm in to this. It kinda just screams SWERY.

It's hard to read too much from a demo in a pretty sub-optimal environment, but the kinect playing up a few times and just generally seeming to have a fair bit of latency makes me wonder how much better Kinect actually is this time around. It did seem to cope reasonably well with the hand gestures though, which is great. The hover-hand-over-icon stuff in most 360 kinect games is terrible. Seems like having more fidelity in the hand tracking makes for much more intuitive interaction.

#40 Posted by TobbRobb (4654 posts) -

This looks incredibly Swery. Here's hoping for pc version!

It's bad in all the right ways though. And I have to agree with the Bombsquad at this point. Yes, the PS4 seems like the obvious choice for a new home console, but holy crap MS have some sweet exclusives lined up... Now it just needs to not cost a 100$ too much. Pretty sure that's what's hurting MS most at this point, because otherwise the Xbone looks cool

#42 Posted by OllyOxenFree (4973 posts) -

All of them dislikes... poor SWERY...

#43 Posted by HatKing (5957 posts) -

I'm sure I'll eventually get an Xbox One. This will probably be one of those things that I pick up when I do.

#44 Posted by Snail (8606 posts) -

A 100% Kinect-controlled SWERY game might be the second good reason ever to play a Kinect game (after gunslinger).

I do. Just hasn't been anything on PS4 I want to play. That I can think of anyway. This is the first gen I'm seriously considering never touching a console and just sticking to my PC. Unless I come into some money to waste I just see no reason to. Who knows where they will be in the next few years, but so far nothing on them has me interested in the slightest. Especially now that they all have a paywall for online stuff.

#46 Posted by Animasta (14692 posts) -

@crusader8463: let's be real here, was there anything on 360/ps3 worth buying when they came out? Launch games are, like, 90% mediocre at best.

#47 Posted by OldGuy (1558 posts) -

Yep. That intro bit there is 100% Swery writing. Still not getting a console til a year or two after launch, but this will (likely) be on the list that decides which one gets bought first...
