That's pretty awesome, was gonna buy this anyway since I enjoyed the first one, and since everything transfers over. This looks like it will be just as fun just to mess around with as the other one, definitely gonna grab it during this time.

They're silly minigames, but Double Fine makes about the best use of the Kinect out of anyone else I've seen program for it. My daughter loves the first one and I don't mind playing with her.

That's a cool story, but for myself and everyone else I know that has a Kinect, none of us have regretted it. Dance Central alone makes it worth it, Gun Stringer and Fruit Ninja are fun as well, plus all the little games that come out for free every once in a while are nice as well.

I agree. Dance Central, Fruit Ninja and Kinect Sports have all been incredibly fun for me and family/friends. It's been totally worth it.

Dance Central is a blast, and when people come over we have a fantastic time playing. I knew I would like that game and the Kinect works great with it. It's much more fun than the dance games that require you to wave around the wand.

The bad news is we only have dirt for dinner.
The good news is it's all you can eat.

This is genuinely pretty great. I'm guessing you haven't seen Happy Action Theatre in person? It's a lot of dumb fun.

Was ready to pay 800 for this no questions asked, but free is tremendous.

I like Kinect but personally hated Gunstringer.

You know what game is completely worth a Kinect alone? Kung Fu High-Impact. Endless awesomeness.

This. I usually dislike minigames, but Kinect Party is one of the best ways to introduce people to the Kinect. Double Fine did a superb job with it.

Yeah... except DFHAT actually is a ton of fun for kids and adults. Guessing you've never actually played it. I was ready to pay full price for this happily, so getting it free is amazing.

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

Someone who got an copy via code earlier tweeted something about an unlock code. I assume it's that. Maybe that's what will go up in price in a couple of weeks?

Game was free in the marketplace, but it was only the trial. I had to go to the link in the OP on my iphone to download the add-on to unlock everything.

Works fine now. Daughter spent 30 minutes hopping around before bed. Win.

Yeah, it looks like you can just download all 3 items. The game, the unlock, and then there appears to possibly be an addon(?) called The Star Gazer.

My daughter will probably make sure daddy plays this tonight until I'm dead on my feet.

This game is actually pretty funny. I just played with my 3 year old son this morning and we were both cracking up.
