Tara Long and I teamed up once again to give you a look at Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor. It's the first major Kinect game that uses the actual controller, meaning that you can actually have total freedom when it comes to the... more
I have a love/hate relationship with the Kinect. At best, I've used my Kinect to shout at Netflix when feeling incredibly lazy or when I've built up enough motivation to workout with Your Shape: Fitness Evolved. It's also fu... more
