Kinect: The Most Painful Demo to Watch

I was watching the Microsoft Press Conference via Gametrailers.com just now, and it seems they want to force themselves to transform their products into another Wii. I couldn't watch it anymore...

First, Kinect Animals, or whatever it is. Bringing a child into the stage to play with her imaginary pet (and even pretend to be licked by it) was painfully awkward and annoying. I'm tuning in to Nintendo for that feeling tomorrow. I don't need a double dose. Also, why try to rip off cheaper products with already established fanbases (Wii Sports, Wii Fit...)

Kinect Adventures looks like another excuse to act like a complete idiot in front of friends and family. As if anyone wants another option for that...

I fear for Microsoft. As soon as Halo and Gears of War release their final installments, they will end up depending on their motion trinket entirely.

Also, what's with the Wii Fit ripoff?

To hell with it, I'm ending this and waiting for Sony's Conference tomorrow.

About SAMA1984one of us since 3:01 AM on 01.11.2010

I'm a lifelong gamer who has enjoyed video games through the thick and thin of my life. I'm also a person who speaks my mind often, which is why I chose to start this blog here where others can discuss what I have to say.

Originally a Nintendo fan, I've turned my back on it when they turned their collective backs on their old following. Currently, my Wii is still connected to my TV and I play with it from time to time.

Had an Xbox 360, which got the red ring five times before I put it out of its misery, and got an Elite, which got the E74 error and couldn't be replaced or fixed. Currently, it's on a shelf in some game repair shop, collecting dust, and that doesn't look like it's about to change anytime soon.

Have a PS3, which is going strong. It's currently my primary console.

I also have a DS and am planning to pick up a PSP as soon as Valkyria Chronicles 2 comes out. And a PC that runs Crysis, Supreme Commander and World of Warcraft, often at the same time.

You see, my posts may get responses suggesting I'm a fanboy or a hater, which is why I clarify this here: I tried all consoles, and didn't cling onto them when they started to fail, either in company support or in hardware/software.

My favorite genres are real time strategy and first person shooters, and I often turn to role-playing games and fighting games, with a bit of platforming on the side.

I hate, HATE music games. I love the songs you can play in them, but I hate the concept.
