<p>We were just joking around in 1-9 on Freeport about the possibility of SOEmote being taken a bit further and extending it to a Wii-remote type application where you had to move around to adventure and thought how incredibly awesome would that be?</p><p>It would certainly  make your morning workouts a bit more lively and the possibility of different moves would be hilarious/interesting.</p><p>A monk toon would have to do roundhouse kicks to fight. A necro would use a sock puppet on his or her hand for a pet ... a fury would have to raise their hands up over their heads over and over again to get ring of fire going, etc ...</p><p>Imagine a four hour raid .... we'd be a thinner more active MMO playerbase that's for sure <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p><p>Can you think of more moves?</p>

<p>I'm working on making it so you have to flap your arms to use your flying mount.</p>

<p>They could team up with Neil Stephenson and CLANG, but it'd be a different game.  Plus how do you incorporate magic into a semi-realistic combat system?</p>

<p>This could be closer than you think, the Kinnect for Widows hardware is already on sale (£199 Stering) in the UK, I would assume USD price to be roughly the same, but there's an <a href="http://www.stocksandshares.tv/microsoft-to-launch-kinetre/32023799" target="_blank">interesting snippet of some side development by Microsoft UK.</a></p><p>Also there are large number articles over at microsoft.com, just search for kinect for windows.</p><p>A kinect powered mmo would be something both wierd and wonderful. An AAA mmo with full kinect support would definately get my attention, unfortunately I can't SOE rising to the challenge.</p>

<p>Could use the dance pad from dance dance revolution to represent your spell hotbar?</p>

Seiffil 08-14-2012 08:05 PM

<p>I'll just say this, it's all fun and games, until some ranger accidently shoots something through his monitor <img src="/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

SisterTheresa 08-14-2012 08:33 PM

<p>Meh most of the games out now they can't even get it to register right.</p><p>And my knees would kill me the amount of times I duck behind my shield for Defensive Stance stuff ... ow.</p>

Tayne 08-15-2012 10:18 AM

<p>lol ok because I think this is so much fun to think about .. what movement would you guys say would correspond to a spell like Manaburn?</p><p>Spinning in a circle? (nope, no good, player would be dizzy as heck afterwards)</p><p>OOOH! How about double arms in circle, like a summoner pulling up a pet .. oh wait, you'd need that motion for summoners.</p><p>Hrm, I'm stumped. Any ideas?</p>

Zergosch 08-15-2012 11:57 AM

<p>You can control most games via kinect and a software, which is already to download for free.</p><p>Someone already controlled a other mmorpg, as i think you know which one ^^ </p><p>Just google, its funny to watch.</p><p>If i got some time and some cash to play with, would be funny as hell <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" /> well..... at least out of raids ^^</p><p>For the first animation... how about firing a Arrow (and i do mean a single one, not just turning on rangeattack ^^)</p>

<p>Cool idea.</p><p>Although my wife would be calling 911 after a big fight, thinking I was having a seizure.</p>

Hehe.</p>

Khornan 08-17-2012 01:12 PM

<p>I'll be honest, I would love this, and I would play this.. all the time. Though it would be tough to get a crowd for this, and to develop it in the first place, having a motion controllable MMO would be sweet, and having it be EverQuest or EverQuest II would be even better. I guess we can HOPE for EQ:Next and Kinect?</p>

deadcrickets2 08-17-2012 02:14 PM

<p>Why not start up a Kickstarter project to develop this?  Get the community involved in programming it and place it under something like the BSD license?</p>

Ceebia 08-18-2012 06:13 AM

<p>All I can think is if they ever do VR suits, can we say hello Lawnmower Man of EverQuest?</p>

Tayne 08-23-2012 04:40 PM

<p>Would be cool if they had a helmet you put on and saw the game right in front of you that way ... but I suppose a giant tv and some awkward grunting and jumping would be fun, too. <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p><p>And yes, youtube videos of this would be all kinds of awesome.</p><p>Ok, wards for shamans .. how would it work? Hands together over your head and cascading down to your legs? Over and over?</p>

TorrynWoodsrunner 08-23-2012 04:49 PM

<p>So as a Ranger, I'd just have to fall down a lot?</p><p><img src="/eq2/images/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" /></p>

Gadfly299 08-25-2012 12:27 AM

<p>Spell casting would need to use hand, arm and voice for each spell.</p><p>It would be a yoga masters nightmare to learn...  I got it, types of matial arts Kata's.  The motions and vocal addons for each spell would work.</p><p>As to flapping my arms to fly?  No, I will walk in that case.  Shoulders are in bad enough shape as is.</p>
