Damo commented on Kinect Joy Ride's Shameful Auto-Steering Secre...:

It's a shame that this has come to light as I can't seen any valid reason why they'd put auto-steering in there. The tech works, so why include it? This is going to cause bad press for the system in the long run.

Kinect has bags of potential - just look at what hackers have managed to achieve in a relatively short space of time - so it's criminal that events like this are undermining all the good work. I'm sure hardcore gamers will use this as a stick to beat Kinect with, but I believe that by next year, the critics will be silenced.



Damo commented on Kinect is "As Accurate as a Control Pad" says ...:

I think he's going to regret those comments in the long run, but I get what he's saying...I think people radically underestimate the potential of Kinect when it comes to control. Once developers really start pushing the envelope, I think we'll see experiences that simply aren't possible on any other platform.



Damo commented on Talking Point: From 40 Buttons to None - Can S...:

I think it's obvious that the experience is going to have to be a lot more basic this time around, but you could argue that some of the buttons on that monstrous controller were things you could easily do away with.

I think a combination of gesture-based and vocal commands could work really well, but ironically that interface is a lot more futuristic than the original Steel Battalion - and from the footage we've seen so far, Heavy Armor is going for a 'retro' look, closer to WWII tech.

Should be interesting to see the first gameplay footage, put it that way!
