But the game just recently came out on Steam! That doesn’t count as a re-release on PC? I was hoping for a bigger sale on it this Christmas, but it didn’t come to a low enough price for me to pull the trigger just to own the Steam version. But now they’re re-releasing it at an even higher price? Interesting.
It’s actually called Quake 4 Kinect HD. As you’d expect, the game requires the Kinect for all movement and activities. Rocket jumps involve jumping at least 1 feet in the air and yelling “boom boom!”. You move forward by windmilling your arms in a swimming motion above your head. One particular boss can only be defeated by dancing to covers of Christina Aguilera songs.
Recently leaked is footage of a highly controversial level where you go undercover in a Strogg suit and maniacally rampage with a horde of fellow aliens through a futuristic Chuck-E-Cheese. The game doesn’t force you to eat the tweens at the birthday party, but it doesn’t punish you either. It doesn’t make value judgements. Just like real life. It’s deep like that.
