Gunstringer and the perils of repetitive arm motions

Max and Tara grabbed Twisted Pixel CEO Michael Wilford at PAX this weekend and ruthlessly grilled him about their new Kinect title, The Gunstringer. In the process, she created what will no doubt be an animated GIF by the morning in demonstrating the actions player two performs to win in the multiplayer mode.

They talked about the challenges of developing action games using Kinect and how the game's concept plays neatly into the mechanics, how it keeps players from getting worn out and how it helps keep players from feeling like an idiot while performing the game's actions.

Between this, Rise of Nightmares and Sesame Street: Once Upon A Monster, I'm happy to see some games arrive for this control system that look like real games and not just tech demos. Pretty soon, I'll have to rearrange my living room to take advantage of some of these titles.

Review: The Gunstringer

A skeleton cowboy marionette driven by revenge. Troma's Lloyd Kaufman driving dangerously. A beautiful, unlockable picture of our own Hamza Aziz. A gator that has sex with a lumberjack. Wait, hold on... what now?  Yup, this is definitely a Twisted Pixel game. Welcome to The Gunstringer, easily one of the most fun and original titles for Kinect. more

The first trailer for the Need for Speed movie is here

Oh you didn't forget, did you? There's going to be a Need for Speed movie, and it's going to star Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul. The first trailer for the movie has plenty of cliché going for it, you know, the same kind of stuff you've seen from movies about racing cars before. Need for Speed (the movie) revs up its first trailer [Flixist]more
