Default Re: Anyone get a Kinect?

Kinectamals looked interesting but quickly sucked. They make you watch too long of videos too many times. Just get to the action. The grand kids even got bored after playing it the first time. The 6 year old asked if you could skip the videos.
Less videos more action please.

I would recommend Dance Central 2. I picked up the Kinect for $99 with 3 games on Black Friday from Amazon.

I bought the kids the Sesame Street Once Upon a Monster Kinect game for Christmas. They played the demo and had fun.
We also have a fighting game for it and believe it or not the 6 year old did better than most of us adults did. I know who I'll have be my bodyguard now

I assume you mean Dance Central?

I ordered DC2 and Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012 both for $65. Picking up the Kinect Sensor Bundle with Kinect Adventures tonight.

Hope this gets used to justify the $170 I'm spending.

YSFE2012 looks very impressive in the youtube gameplay videos.

Plugged it in today and we tried Dance Central a bit, didn't realize how much room this **** needs until now. Game is fun but had to move my couch to make room for the kinect.

Nyko sells a lense thing so you don't need as much room, but I'd be worried about being too close to your tv.

We got one for x-mas along with the Rapala fishing game.

... hoping there's a golf game out there somewhere.
