    ...Literally.



    I'd ask if George Lucas cared anymore, but really, I think that question has been answered enough times.

    When this was first announced, I considered getting this game...

    Now I'm ashamed I even own a Kinect.

    To think that the Star Wars X360 bundle is selling for $450. And parents are going to buy it.[​IMG]

    the bundle is actually pretty sweet besides the game. I would buy it if I had the cash. I would just sell off the game.

    I can't tell if this is real or not

    Hoping, no, praying that it's not

    Sad to say, it's from the retail copy of the game. Wikipedia has a description of the game mode...

    I think Red Tails was a better tribute to Star Wars than this.

    Seriously LucasArts, fuck yourselves with a lightsaber. I mean really. I remember last gen had an awesome crop of Star Wars games. You've got your KOTOR, Battlefront, Jedi Knights, Rogue Squadron II and III (I heard people loved II but I could never get into it), and some lesser loved (but still good) stuff like Bounty Hunter and The Clone Wars (WHICH I FUCKING LOVE IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW). Now they cut out KOTOR for a MMO, ditch Battlefront, Rogue Squadron, and any continuations of their original games and give us... The Force Unleashed (which was average at best), those shitty games based on the cartoon, and this abomination.

    I had no grudge against the Kinect before and I thought it was even picking up a bit with like Child of Eden, Fruit NInja, and Gunstringer, but this has just made my hate the device and everything associated with it. Except for my Xbox, I still love this.

    I'm pained to see this happen.

    You know, there's just one thing I don't understand...

    Why the hell does Lando take over dancing duties halfway a song called "I'm Han Solo"?

    Because I don't think Han Solo wanted to disgrace himself even more than he did.

    I'm sure for this game, I'll be the one shooting first.

    I used to think that Kinect was the best out of the 3...
    I think it's the worst.
    Wii = best games
    PS Move = Good games
    Kinect = ??? lolwut

    When i first bought the Kinect, I thought it would soon start shelling out games for hardcore gamers.
    However, looks like Microsoft just doesn't want to ditch the casual gamer market. I'll be selling off my Kinect over this weekend. Oh well, you gotta learn from your mistakes. I'm never gonna buy something that has 'Microsoft' with 'motion sensing' written on it in future.

    Do hardcore gamers actually care about motion controls?

    I don't mind they injected some humor into the game, I'm far more interested in seeing if the main gameplay is improved beyond the horrific E3 demos

    just read a review, what a piece of shit. Dipshits at MS need to dump the ZERO CONTROLLER bologna and incorporate one with kinect gameplay. Foot pedals, hats, mustache, lots of gameplay opportunity.

    Hey, there's a controller. You. YOU ARE THE CONTROLLER.

    But yeah, Kinect games would be a hundred times better if they incorporated some buttons into them. It just becomes an incredible pain in the ass trying to make any game with just motions. It'd be like trying to be a Zelda game for the Wii that only responds through flicks and twists with the remote. If they mapped like, I dunno, combat in a game to the Kinect and then movement to a controller/analog stick, it'd be awesome.

    Dear lucas.

    Remake the star wars trilogy arcade game for kinect, add more levels that are actually referencing scenes in the original movies, polish the graphics, release game.

    Thanks.

    Pfft, you obviously don't know your Star Wars if you can't remember the Han Solo dance number in A New Hope.
