[RUMOUR] Gears of War Kinect
« on: November 16, 2010, 07:50:47 PM »
Kinect Gears of War in the works
Motion cam reportedly not just for casual games

If you're not overly hyped by Kinect's casual-friendly launch line-up, you'll be pleased to hear that you could soon be using the motion cam to chainsaw bad guys in a new Gears of War game.

According to a 'reliable IGN source', a Kinect Gears of War title is in the works at Epic Games.

The site isn't sure whether it's a brand new Gears experience or an older one retro-fitted to work with the controller-free device.

Microsoft wouldn't offer comment on rumour or speculation, but Epic design director Cliff Bleszinski said on Twitter: "No Kinect in Gears of War 3." Sounds like we're looking at some kind of spin-off.

In October, Gears of War 3 was delayed by a minimum of five months, from next April to autumn 2011.

Epic said the move was "a business decision" and not "a quality issue". Could it have been made to allow time to implement Kinect support?



Oh joy!

It's a strategy game where all moves are made real time, so you build an army and attack, defend, flank etc using the strategic placement of bases and different types of units (Soldiers, Tanks etc).

Most games are along the lines of Command and Conquer, where you have to build up from a small base by collecting or manufacturing resources to build extra buildings, research upgrades and build combat units.

They are often pretty geeky involving rock, paper, scissor style combat where one unit is stronger than another and weaker still to another, so you have to build varied units and emplace them in the right position.

Usually though you can build a massive army of tanks and just roll over everything.

Not to be confused with TBS (Turn Based Strategy)

My money is on an on-rails shooter, to be released on Xbox Live Arcade as a promotional tie in with Gears 3.

Simple but effective.

If it added any benefit to Gears 3 (or 4) a la Dead Rising Case Zero I'd buy it.
