O_OYou could put on armor and pretend your a warrior, but the only hard part would be resisting the urge to cleave your monitor...
Impromptu analysis of the 3 main motion controls incoming!Its funny how the Kinect Hacks are infinitly better than anything M$ has in mind for Kinect. They just see it as a Casual Wii copycat. Its too bad as it could really be an interesting, albeit nerdy, tool. As almost all of the Kinect Hacks show. Getting a Predator style cloak, actually turning you into a virtual reality japanese girl and so on. Its also funny how ALL of the Kinect hacks dont use the 360 at all. They all just use PC software to run/create the hacks.The PSMove seems to be more about the hardcore games. Its included in Killzone 3, Heavy Rain, Gran Turismo 5, MAG, SOCOM and loads more. Its not a gimmick either as it really improves the play quality by leaps and bounds. Its freakily accurate to and has absolutly zero input lag.The Wii is...errm. A Gimmick. Its starting to cool down fast in most parts of the world (its being overtaken completly by the PS Move in Japan).
I was talking to a friend the other day and we got on the discussion of how they should develop a way to play the video games we love (mostly WoW and LoL) while exercising (since we both get incredibly bored when we go to the gym).I am so glad to see someone was thinking the same thing as we were. I'm looking forward to seeing how it develops.As for the daze mechanic, it is very annoying to be dazed by something 50+ levels lower than you while running through a lowbie zone. I think there should be a limit to what level mob can daze a high level character (ie a level 5 shouldn't be able to daze a level 85 off their mount).
WOW. Very bad idea seeing how the Kinect is EXTREME fail. This would only draw more 10 year olds to the game and increase the bads wiping in instances/raids."sry for the wipe, it didnt recognize my hand movement for a sword swing.."
Well if they got rid of daze i'm sure they'd just end up giving more mobs snare/slow abilities. Wouldn't that be fun! I mean really... if you're getting annoyed by mobs dazing you when you could turn and almost literally just sneeze and they'd die... how lazy are we getting as a playerbase, honestly? =( Add the fact that at 60 one can fly almost anywhere (Screw you, Azeroth BC content!) and getting dazed by insignificant mobs shouldn't be an issue at all.As for the Kinect... AWESOME - for casual playing. Even at it's best, the Wii still makes me wish I could play some games with buttons and an analog/mouse. And uh, that one game. Lair? Yeah... we still have a way to go before motion gaming is perfected. Still amazing though.
@Shocker300Did you even watch the video? The controls were impressive and accurate. "10 year olds" will fail as hard on the Kinect system as they do on the keyboard and mouse setup.
You all look like idiots who did no research before adding your input, the developers said this is not ready to be implemented in dungeons or raids, but for fun doing things like dailies or farming, they're still tweaking it and trying to work out more ways to better the program.
I would like totally use it! - Love the idea of being able to actually experience what happens with your own body instead of only using your hands.Also, I would like go totally in character xD configuring it to look like what you would do if you really were casting a spell, i'd see this as AWESOME fun.I think I personally would play better like this, because casting stuff because muscular memory over time. Just like using different key binds.
I find it funny that blizzard thinks they would be "dulling the game" if they removed daze. I mean look around, 30 minute hearth cooldowns, 1.5 second mount casts, they're pretty much making the game fit for a 9 year old rather than a real hardcore player. I remember when it took a month to get to level 30. Any old school vanilla player would consider this game trash. I realize that with time comes change, but please. It's obvious that blizzard is trying to attract younger players.... but what for? By doing that you're repelling more of the better players, and soon wow will be crawling with noobs asking "how do i do this quest".Edit: Also, what happened to outdoor raid encounters? I remember that being the highlight of the game, endless pvp in front of a world bosses between top guilds until we got on ventrillo with the guilds and reasoned with them. Hell, I even thought that kiting highlord gruul was one of the best moments of the game for me.
The TB change has broken the BG on many servers. I know many here will probably say it was already broken, since it heavily favored the defense. Fine. But factions are now Honor Sharing, or whatever you want to call it. One side is deliberately losing to the other every other time so that everyone can farm the honor points. It's completely broken it for people that want to legitimately play it and those that want to raid BH. I was told that any form of Honor Sharing was prohibited before during an arena season (S2?) so I don't see this lasting long. I zoned into TB this evening to see 50% of my horde team sitting on their mounts at the spawn point doing nothing. Another 25% were fighting outside the forts instead of inside. The rest were trying to actually play the BG.Tenacity (I called it Tenasty) was a better solution for WG imbalance than this. On one hand this means that TB is shared 50-50 IF both sides cooperate with this shenanigan. On the other, people who want to play the darn BG can't.
Implementing World of Warcraft with Kinect seems likes a challenging but incredibly fun idea. Imagine this system perfected and used by a hardcore pvper or a Heroic 25 man raid. Even better, using dance moves as your "normal" controls with music in the background./cha-cha
Its not a bad idea i like the idea and the Kinect Was acually a best seller for the holidays this year i bought one and its actually really fun i love it. but i geuss its all just option but it would be nice to enteract with a game for a change it would be none more differant then when GH came out it took you awhile to get used to but it eventually just becomes what they call "Muscle Memory" you learn it and it becomes second nature
Screw movement controls. Virtual Reality is where it's at!
