The lights are on
This new Steel Battalion trailer succeeds in two things: Showing off the legged tanks' walking animations and sheer firepower. Glimpses at dramatic life inside the cockpit can be caught between firefights. We see soldiers loading shells, punching each other, and the player even shivs another in the gut.
Check out the trailer below, then be sure to gawk at the batch of new screens for the game. Steel Battalion's Kinect-enabled action is scheduled to arrive June 19 on Xbox 360.

It looks actually good for a kinect game
I hope they can get the kinect controls tightend up because this looks sweet
I found my head bobbing with each step in the cockpit view for some reason.
The trailer looks good, dont know if i like all the "clutter" on the screen etc, with players and all that on the left side. But i still dont belive in the controller that is Kinect, i havnt seen a game that uses the kinect and makes me go, hell im gonna wave with my hands and skip the wii-mote/Move or standad ps3/xbox controller.
I guess i have to wait two months or for some video with someone playing the game til i can be proven wrong... or right :P
I like that you can get out and steal other peoples mechs...
Really looking forward to this one. From Software is typically a pretty solid company.
This is the only reason I bought Kinect. I hope it doesn't suck.
I was super impressed with how well Kinect held up at PAX East. You move your hand upwards, and your character's hand zooms up to grab the periscope. It really works like in the trailers. Either that, or there was some FANTASTIC TRICKERY going on at PAX :D
Looks cool. Two questions, how on earth did they work "sexual themes" into this? And why would you stab one of your own guys, is he a traitor? Or is he not one of your guys and is an enemy that got into the cockpit?
I don't think the guy got shiv'd. It looks like shrapnel is being pulled out of his abdominal area.
