I had a lot of doubts about how Steel Battalion would make its transition form massive controller to the Kinect system with the newest entry into the series, Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor for XBOX 360. Those worries I had about losing the feeling of immersion in the game seem pretty well answered in the newest trailer, which details some of the games impressive Kinect control set up. What has me most intrigued is the included use of a standard controller for your moving and shooting in the game, which I personally feel like I'd get the most precision with.
Now tell me you don;t feel a bit a spent after watching that video. I doubt that they've gone over the all the possible controls in the game, and I've already forgotten what was mentioned first! Perhaps the whole thing will come naturally after a couple sessions, but I'm feeling pretty stressed out from all the multi-tasking that was on display. Not that I wouldn't mind slapping my crew around --but come on, don't I have to do enough of that at home?
