Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

DAILY MANIFESTO

REALLY!?! Core Gamers Love Kinect

Posted on Tuesday, June 14 @ 08:46:49 Eastern by


If you watched, heard about, or read our live blog of the Microsoft E3 Press Conference, then you know all too well that Kinect is going to be invading your favorite "core" titles. It's being added to Mass Effect 3, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, and many more. When that sad, sad news first broke, you could almost hear the simultaneous sighs and cries from core gamers everywhere.

But the ever-delusional Kinect creative director, Kudo Tsunoda believes that was the sound of core gamers jumping for joy, waving their appendages around to begin prepping them for the onslaught of Kinect-infused core titles.

Kudo, speaking to an audience at E3, said:

I mean, I never really thought that core gamers were in any way hostile to Kinect.

Really Kudo? Maybe you missed the memo entire Internet, but core gamers don't want to make fools of themselves in their living rooms. We're more than happy leaving that sort of embarrassment to the casuals who mindlessly flocked to the Wii, because it was the "it" thing to do at the moment. Also, we're too lazy. We sit on the couch and use our thumbs to play our games. Even that is pushing it.

When core gamers said, "Hey douchebags, you can push this crap to casuals all you want, but don't touch our core games," Kudo heard this instead:

We really love Kinect, and we'd like Kinect to be in the experiences that we play regularly.

That's a real quote from Kudo Tsunoda. Who is apparently doped up on so much opiates that any hate is translated into happy little clouds from a Bob Ross painting.

For the less than 0.0001% of you core gamers that agree with Kudo, then you're in luck:

The number of Kinect experiences we're going to have are going to triple by the end of the year, so there's going to be more different types of experiences in more different types of genres.

Really. We're all in for a world of shit. Let's just pray that they continue to make this crap optional.

REALLY!?! is random feature from Game Revolution, rearing its ugly head only when an industry figure says something so ridiculous, they simply must be called on it. Read something appalling and want GR's take? Email anthony@gamerevolution.com.
