CCP does VR A-OK
It’s no secret that virtual reality is quickly making its mark on the videogame industry. If that weren't evident before, GDC 2015 kicked the door wide open. That's why, with numerous developers turning their attention ...   read

Fruit Ninja review
Any way you slice it, Fruit Ninja is one of the most popular mobile games of all time. It's built around such an unassuming foundation that it lends itself perfectly to those lulls in life when you don't really want to think ...   read

Kinect interference won't be an issue in Rock Band 4

Harmonix wants the Rock Band 4 experience to be a social one -- a group of people together in a room using music as the driving force toward enjoyment. However, Microsoft has a once "integral" peripheral for the Xbox One that's notable...

Microsoft's Kinect for Windows sensor will be gone in 2015

Microsoft has announced that they will be ending sales for the original Kinect for Windows sensor in 2015. Since the "v2" edition (Xbox One) is available, it makes sense to phase out the original. They've reminded developers that the new se...

This game looks like one of the best uses of Kinect or PS Eye I've seen yet

Console camera peripherals are often neat in theory, but fall flat in practice. Turns out that very few people actually want to use the damned things to try to control their games. But, what if they were only used to control the landscape ...

Roller coaster crashing game ScreamRide will be budget priced

Frontier Developments' ScreamRide is a game about building and crashing roller coasters and while I'd prefer to play something like that on PC (or just scratch that itch in RollerCoaster Tycoon where I can also charge people to use the rest...

Literally amazing! I let a stray cat into my friend's house and then put it in the tub with a Kinect

It's National Kitties Are F*cking Adorable and Awesome Day. The best day of the year, in my opinion. To celebrate, I let a stray cat into my friend's house and he beelined to the shower. That's how cats roll (when they feel like it). With ...

You're actually supposed to crash roller coasters in ScreamRide

ScreamRide is an Xbox 360 and Xbox One game due out this spring that should appeal to those of us RollerCoaster Tycoon players who regularly have "accidents" happen at our amusement parks. Now, it's more action than simulation, but you're ...

Behold, D4's chilling grand finale... or something. Whatever

Sometimes playing video games is a fun experience and everyone enjoys themselves. Other times, someone winds up screaming at the TV. That's life. However, I can't remember the last time I found myself screaming "Eat the f*cking peanuts!"&nb...

I think the lesson Bill and I learned playing D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die is that we need to calibrate the Kinect, and make sure it can see us properly. Beyond that, I'm still unclear what this game is about, and it's vaguely u...   read

D4
Okay, so Chris Carter absolutely loved D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die, so Bill and I figured we'd check it out... and uh. Wow. Goodness gracious. That certainly is some sort of video game. I think. Honestly, if I didn't have this whole experience on video, I might think there was a gas leak in my house making us go all stupid and insane.   read

It's a good thing Gears of War: Tactics was canceled

A few years back, it was repeatedly rumored that Gears of War would get a spinoff game built around Kinect. The project never came to fruition and that's seemingly for the best, if this alpha footage of Gears of War: Tactics from VG Leaks i...

Standalone Xbox One Kinects go on sale in October for $150

There's going to be a Fruit Ninja Kinect 2

Microsoft's Phil Spencer on Kinect: 'consumers love the device, they'll buy it'

As much as people make fun of Kinect, it sold a lot of units on the Xbox 360 as an add-on. On the Xbox One -- they didn't have a choice -- they had to buy it. But as of a few weeks ago Microsoft had a change of heart, and decided to announc...

Microsoft executive: Kinectless Xbox One SKU is the best thing for Kinect
