So I promised that list and here it is.  It's late and it's not as thorough as I'd hoped.  I also wish I had images handy to illustrate every point where helpful.  So, in no particular order - a subjective set of desired features for Fallout 4: Things to...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Kinect + Controller Games Are Coming

Posted on Thursday, November 4 @ 17:34:56 Eastern by
Worried your body won't hold up under the normal wear and tear you put controllers though? I'd hate to have to throw myself down on the ground in disgust over a game. Luckily, you'll be able to use both the Kinect and your controller soon.

Recently speaking with gameindustry.biz, Kinect designer Alex Kipman reassured everyone that the controller is not going the way of the dodo. Finally, I can stop holding my breath and stamping my feet in protest.

"We'll continue to have controller-only games. We love controller-free games, we love Kinect experiences and we'll continue to grow our set of those as well. What we haven't really talked about, but exist, are hybrid games.

"Games that are using the controller, which we know and love, and pieces, if not all, of the Kinect experiences to again make those experiences more immersive, more fun and more emotionally connected."


Uhhh, don't you mean "Kinected"? *badum tsch*

"This is where I look at the world, and I know it's easier to look at the world and talk about 'or', but I look at the world and I talk about 'and'. It's about how we take all of these things and fuse all of them together to create unique experiences. This is when I go speak and spend time with creative folk around the industry. I go back and I talk about palette.

"It doesn't always mean using the same colors, the same paintbrushes - the stories you tell are about using the appropriate combinations of all of the colors and brushes to create something meaningful."


Does this guy work for Lionhead or something?

All joking aside, those kinds of applications are what are truly compelling to me about Kinect. The fact that there's some powerful voice recognition technology and the camera technology that's all wound up together means that there are applications that are far out in the future.

Sure, river rafting is fun for a while, but I'm not going to spend 100 hours on that like I have with Fallout 3.
