CCP does VR A-OK photo

CCP's found the best use for Xbox One's Kinect so far

It’s no secret that virtual reality is quickly making its mark on the videogame industry. If that weren't evident before, GDC 2015 kicked the door wide open. That's why, with numerous developers turning their attention to the new tech...

Review: Fruit Ninja Kinect 2

Any way you slice it, Fruit Ninja is one of the most popular mobile games of all time. It's built around such an unassuming foundation that it lends itself perfectly to those lulls in life when you don't really want to think about anything....

Kinect interference won't be an issue in Rock Band 4

Harmonix wants the Rock Band 4 experience to be a social one -- a group of people together in a room using music as the driving force toward enjoyment. However, Microsoft has a once "integral" peripheral for the Xbox One that's notable...

Borderlands characters are now in Dance Central Spotlight

Microsoft's Kinect for Windows sensor will be gone in 2015

Microsoft has announced that they will be ending sales for the original Kinect for Windows sensor in 2015. Since the "v2" edition (Xbox One) is available, it makes sense to phase out the original. They've reminded developers that the new se...

Roller coaster crashing game ScreamRide will be budget priced

Frontier Developments' ScreamRide is a game about building and crashing roller coasters and while I'd prefer to play something like that on PC (or just scratch that itch in RollerCoaster Tycoon where I can also charge people to use the rest...

D4 is on sale, so everyone should buy it immediately

Hey, you! Yeah, the person that owns an Xbox One and is staring confusedly at the guy yelling at them over the Internet! I'm talkin' to you! D4's on sale for Xbox Live Gold members, so you should probably go pick that up right now. It seems...

Behold, D4's chilling grand finale... or something. Whatever

Sometimes playing video games is a fun experience and everyone enjoys themselves. Other times, someone winds up screaming at the TV. That's life. However, I can't remember the last time I found myself screaming "Eat the f*cking peanuts!"&nb...

Our D4 playthrough part 2: send in the clowns

I think the lesson Bill and I learned playing D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die is that we need to calibrate the Kinect, and make sure it can see us properly. Beyond that, I'm still unclear what this game is about, and it's vaguely upsetting to try...

We attempted to play D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die

Okay, so Chris Carter absolutely loved D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die, so Bill and I figured we'd check it out... and uh. Wow. Goodness gracious. That certainly is some sort of video game. I think. Honestly, if I didn't have this whole experienc...

 
 
Gears of War photo

It's a good thing Gears of War: Tactics was canceled

A few years back, it was repeatedly rumored that Gears of War would get a spinoff game built around Kinect. The project never came to fruition and that's seemingly for the best, if this alpha footage of Gears of War: Tactics from VG Leaks i...

Standalone Xbox One Kinects go on sale in October for $150

Microsoft moved a lot more Xbox Ones when it made the prudent business decision to offer a SKU sans Kinect for $100 cheaper. But, what about those that have found themselves saddled with Kinect regret, those that long to come home and find ...

Xbox boss on Rare in a post-Kinect Sports world

Rare's time in the sun may be a distant memory, but Xbox boss Phil Spencer still feels the developer has bright days ahead. Speaking with CVG, Spencer said the British studio "should, can and will be" an important part of Microsoft's future...

There's going to be a Fruit Ninja Kinect 2

A ratings board listing has outed the existence of Fruit Ninja Kinect 2. You cool with that? Fruit Ninja was one of the rare titles for Xbox 360 that made decent use of the motion-sensing device, so it makes sense that the newer console wou...

 
 
$200 Windows Kinect v2 photo

You can buy PC compatible, standalone Kinect v2 for $200

As the Kinect is wrest free from the Xbox One, it will be available for standalone purchase directly from Microsoft.  This is meant to serve as a development tool, not something you should buy for your Xbox One -- that's why they even ...

 
 
 
 
Hands-on D4 photo

Swery65's D4 is all about finding D, dodging weirdos

Swery65 brought us Deadly Premonition, so you know D4 is going to be weird. In fact, Swery told me that he drafted six or seven different stories to work on next and in his partnership with Microsoft, went with the "most bizarre." While the...
