Buy Fruit Ninja Kinect. That is easily the best Kinect game I've played. I have not played The Gunstringer except for the demo. I'll pick it up at some point, though. I suppose you might as well get The Gunstringer at this point, with freebie Fruit Ninja Kinect. Kinect Sports is good too, as is Child of Eden.

So I just picked up a Kinect, set it up, and was wondering what everyone's favorite games were.


dance central, kinect sports, fruit ninja, child of eden is good only had a chance to play it a little bit though

Look, there's no easy way to ask this so I'm just gonna do it...

Does anyone want to be gay lovers with me in Fable 3?

Kinect Adventures comes with the Kinect, of course. That's really good, as is Kinect Sports. Did yours come with a download code for Child of Eden? That's a great pickup.


Nah I bought mine used, so no KA. But I only paid 85, so I'm ok with that.

Why can't they ever use real people instead of models in these videos? Ah well. I like the music.

Jeez that was fast, Matt!

If the game character needs to get high, maybe they could just have the visuals go all psychedelic like Yellow Submarine or something.

You don't have to be high to enjoy a shitload of pancakes, Paul. Same deal as you and your ice cream. :-P

Aw, when I saw "The Stroke" in the video still, I was hoping for Billy Squier.

I guess the game is all right if you like swimming and don't want to...ya know, actually go swimming, lol. The music and announcer make it sound like some kind of futuristic arcade racer though. I feel like it should be called "F-Zero: Michael Phelps", haha.

What's this you speak of? Hope some of the previous Kinect games go on sale or cheaper. Missed the gamefly night sale the other night.

was curious about this, the demo was interesting with the different modes but still on the fence with this. Too many titles at the moment to decide.

I'm not seeing a review, just general impressions. How long is the Gunstringer? That's the only thing that has me hesitant given it's XBLA origins. Fruit Ninja softens the blow but if it is two $10 XBLA games it still doesn't justify a $40 SRP.

Co-Optimus Gunstringer review

It's a similar length to Child of Eden. 4 hours or so to just finish the levels, but many additional hours to get gold medals on them and unlock stuff. The production values, including live-action cinemas all over the place and constant narration, would never be possible on XBLA. Also, the downloadable Wavy Tube Man Chronicles (30-40 minutes long and very silly) and Fruit Ninja make it an even better value.

I actually have an extra Fruit Ninja Kinect code.

If anyone has like, 400 points from Bing or something I'd be willing to part with it.

I just got the Kinect, but don't have enough room to play it. I got the Zoom and it helps a little- but not too much. I can now play Child of Eden though, so that's sweet. Fruit Ninja doesn't work well. Blah...

These are the games that I am currently playing:

:ps3: Batman: Arkham City

:wiiu: Mario Kart 8

Alright, time for some more impressions on kinect stuff..

Gun Stringer - Its a fun game but the controls are too rough imo. Flicking my hand has to be done rather harshly to get the gun to shoot, and fighting the first boss i got hit many, many times moving left/right to shoot. It was quite frustrating. Its a fun game overall but maybe at 10 dollars at most, retail is pure rip off imo.

Fruit Ninja - Still fun, been playing it here and there and having a good time with it. Thinking about the DLC..

Penguins of Madagascar - Avoid if you are over 8 years old. Its a mindless game thats SORTA fun but its as repetitive as it gets. Controls pretty poorly also.

Nickelodeon MLB - I was expecting this to be horrific, but its rather fun. The pitching is really fun in fact. Batting is pretty awful tho. Worth a rent i'd say.

Burnout Crash - Horrible controls with kinect. Wouldnt waste my time with it. Awful.

Hole in the Wall - Worst game ive ever played in my life. Atari 2600 is GOTG in comparison to this. AVOID EVEN LOOKING AT IT.

Rise of Nightmare - Controls really well and was rather fun to boot. I am going to try and finish it before sending it back.

I'm also considering the Fruit Ninja Kinect DLC since I finished up the last of the achievements the other day. Definitely a fun game. Regarding Gun Stringer - that's what I felt about the controls with the demo. i wasn't really that happy with how it controlled. I'll probably pick it up at some point, but yeah, I'll wait for it to drop.

Xbox has the mobile kinect booth set up at Mall of America. I played several games.

Dance Central 2 - played one song solo and one song in a dance battle, the 2 player works REALLY good

Kinect Sports 2 - only got to play tennis, it felt like a VERY early build cause it didn't feel as good as table tennis in KS1

Star Wars Kinect - did the rancor scene, lol this game is a broken pos, we'll see if they ever get it to be fun

They also had the Disney kinect game but we didn't have time for it yesterday. Also for doing the demos they gave my wife and I each 480 points (enough for a HD movie download it said on the card) and 1 month code for xbox live.

Look, there's no easy way to ask this so I'm just gonna do it...

I would not trust your review on this game :-P

It's not the best idea for a Kinect arcade game, but it is decent and somewhat enjoyable. No kinect game is perfect. You'll either get tired fast/easily or the motion controls don't work properly.

I will wait on Gunstringer to go on sale for less than $15 probably, felt like an xbla game to me and the controls aren't so responsive. Still waiting to try out Haunted. Hole in the wall was okay, but for children who will do silly things and it's just like the game show so don't know why anyone would expect differently.

That's cold, dude. I do have patience for a few Kinect quirks (I love Kinect after all), but that only goes so far. You didn't experience the issues I described? Both of my co-op partners certainly did, and they hated the game worse than me.
