Wreckateer video shows what skilled players can do


7:00 PM on 07.25.2012



I've been playing a fair bit of Wreckateer, finding it to be one of those rare Kinect games which manages to contain both casual appeal and strategic depth. Think it's simple? Watch this video of the lead designer playing one of the stages with the aim of maximizing their score.

There's a lot of finesse at work here, from the amount of tension on the launch of a shot to the fast, careful application of the magic gauntlets to move the shots in air. I'm not anywhere near this level of skill, but I'm rather motivated to get there after seeing what's possible.

If you've already got one of those Kinect things in your house, just get the game. You'll not feel quite as bad about your investment.

Woman stole 1,000 from her mother to buy junk in Candy Crush Saga

I've played Candy Crush Saga and my share of match-three games as a mobile game fanatic, but to date I've not spent a dime on any of the free-to-play giants. I can understand wanting to spend a dollar or two here and there fo...more

Natsume's E3 2014 lineup sure is a lineup

Natsume has announced its complete E3 roster for next week, and while it's got a few high points, it's not impressing me too much. It's a strange mishmash of handheld games and iOS releases with a stray PSP game and Wii U pro...more
