All three should get a saggy but DBZ is the worse. Fuck you Microsoft for crushing my dreams
DBZ games need to be made by P++ then DBZ games will be fucking awesome again
Steal Battalion it was the only hope for kinnect and it came before DBZ kinnect
Yup. I mean I didn't wanna go into that much detail but every single E3 has been like that for 360 for the past 4 years I think. Aside from Kinect missing 2 E3's before that or something. Either way it is like ScrewAttack portrayed in their videos they made before this E3 saying that Microsoft needs to change it up and stop with starting off with CoD or Halo, and then some Kinect this, then another Gears and more Kinect this and some non-game stuff.
Pretty much yeah, it feels like they are brainwashed. Thinking 360 is way way better than PS3 and even PC at that. When 360 and PS3, pretty much the same, only differencei s that PS3 is still trying with exclusives at least. But I guess Microsoft knows they dont have to try for anymore new exclusives, more buy for their console anyway. Just kind of sad, dunno if it is that 'merica mentality or something but it is upsetting.
360 is rapidly being less about gaming and more about movies and advertising and being something other than just a gaming console and yet I think the fanbase would still stick by then even once they drop hardcore games all together and focus on casual. But I guess 3rd party is what saves the console. If a console only relied on first party exclusive... Nintendo would be on top, then Sony and Micorsoft would be dead pretty much. To have no other games but exclusives and all. Well the again, 360 has gotten the casual market now, somewhat. So I dunno.
Just sad, you have developers that really try something new, but that means nothing to most, probably 360 fans mostly, as all they want is guns, gore and graphics. Nothing new and creative. I dunno. But that is too extreme and this is a rant and sorry about all that.
Yeah... and the best part? Sony doesn't force it down their consumers' throats. The Move is, for the most part, an option. You CAN play many of their games with the Move setup or just use a SixAxis controller instead. The games that are exclusively for the Move are alright, but nothing blockbuster. That's really the beauty of the Move - it's there for people who want it, and not required for those who don't.
I'm not surprised. If you looked at Microsoft's E3 press conference, all they did was focus heavily on Kinect, then say "Oh, and to you fans that have made us a success all these years... here's more Halo. That'll shut you up for a while, right?" Next E3, it'll be "here's more Gears of War. That'll shut you up for a while, right?" and the pattern will repeat pretty much forever.
And the pathetic truth of it? The reaction showed that, well... it worked! It's like the 360 fanbase is completely brainwashed... almost programmed. It's like a pavlovian response - show them Gears or Halo and they drool over it.
You know... they probably should have just made a Kinect award separate from the XBox 360 SAGY... since it was pretty much a given that all the 360 nominees would end up being Kinect titles.
Hell, the Kinect should just get a SAGY in of itself... attempting to cash in on the casual market Nintendo has a stranglehold on with a system that makes the Wii-mote look like high-precision.
Still, if I had to vote, it'd definitely go to Steel Battalion... since at least the other games have controls that somewhat work. Steel Battalion just does not control at all and gets easily confused, making the game itself pretty much unplayable.
People are big fans of Dragon Ball Z so I have to give the Shitty Ass Game of the Year for the X-Box 360 Award to DBZ Kinect. Sorry DBZ Kinect! You are the Weakest Link! Goodbye!
definitely DBZ Kinect. this versus Star Wars Kinect at least Star Wars Kinect can read moves and actually have a somewhat fun mode. DBZ Kinect (also being lazy by pasting Kinect mode on the original game and selling it for $60) only has one mode.
Shouldn't the 360 and Kinect get their own SAGY sections? These are all Kinect titles!
I don't really know anything about Steel Battalion, but apart from that, I'd have to say Star Wars. DBZ may suck balls, but Star Wars Kinect has awful input lag, and overall, just sucks ass.
Steel Battalion, as much as I hated DBZ Kinect. It's just pathetic to know that the same studio that made friggin Dark Souls made that broken piece of crap.
Agreed. Kinect sucks overall and those 3 games are used for Kinect. Hell for a motion controller, the PS Move is much better than the Kinect.
I wish you could give it to "All of the above." The Kinect is the mastermind of crap.
Ain't it amusing how 360 only really has Kinect titles that are exclusive to them? Aside from Halo, Gears and I suppose Forza. And of course Kinect is only really good for dancing games, I feel it is anyway. Feels just more like it should've been a add on for dancing games such as the DDR pads for DDR are and the guitars for Guitar Hero were. If the next Xbox focuses even more on Kinect, gonna feel alot more 360 fanboys going to be switching over to PC, Nintendo or Sony.
At least on this video they didn't include games that are also on PC and PS3. If they would, it would've been upsetting and not fair because they are on all platforms. So it is good they stuck to 360 only games, as they should.
Yup... Since they introduced the half star rating system around the time after E3, I think...
0.5? That kind of score exists?
Yeah, Steel Battalion is definitely the worst.
One interesting tip I read on JonTron's Star War's Kinect review was to use a toy lightsaber while playing the game to make it somewhat enjoyable.
I think Steel Battalion is going to take it, of the 3 titles; DBZ is at least playable, SW has playable parts depends on which mini game you pick. But SB is just totally broken
