I have to admit, for the past year I’ve been one of the biggest haters of the Microsoft Kinect. Whenever I walk by its display stand at my local GameStop, I make no hesitation about scoffing at those foolish people who bought one. Yes…I’m that big of a douche, but only sometimes.
Well, after viewing the newest footage from BioWare’s Mass Effect 3, I have been converted to this cult of Kinect. Hypocritical, I know, but it’s so awesome! It completely scraps the notion of pausing the game to switch weapons. Just shout “Shotgun” at the screen, and Commander Shephard will whip out his hand cannon and lay waste to all enemies on screen. Check out this amazing demo video if you don’t believe me.
So what do you guys think? Is this going to convert you? Or was I the only douche who didn’t realize how great the Kinect was?
