Rise of Nightmares' Undead Spokesman is a great salesman

Kinect exclusive Rise of Nightmares has come the closest of any upcoming release to actually making me purchase a Kinect. A good deal of that pressure to purchase comes from the fact that the game just looks fun, but I'd attribute the bulk of it to the way it takes shots at every other Kinect game.

"It has many features like no dancing, no steering wheels and, as a bonus, no perky aerobics instructors."

I've got respect for games that refuse to take games too seriously. I may not ever play you, Rise of Nightmares, but thanks for poking fun at the silly stuff.
