This is not the newest hack around, but I still wanted to share it with you because it is pretty cool. The hack makes Dead Space 2 (on PC of course) playable with the Kinect sensor (and the wiiMote). Video of how this looks like after the jump.

The hack works by mapping existing keyboard keys to Kinect gestures. Combining that with wiimote movements seems to create a pretty fluent and quick responding experience. Check it out below!
Looking at the comments of the youtube page, the original hacker (Kick775) says it’s easy to setup, but difficult to play. Perhaps it takes quite a bit to get used to playing a 3rd person shooter with the wiimote and Kinect, but once you’ll get the hang of it I think it will be a very cool and immersive experience.
