Below you can see a prototype of the first zombie game coming to Microsoft’s Kinect. Obviously, this game is nowhere near finished but Zombie Holdout’s concept is rather exciting. Basically, you’re a dude who has a lot of guns and a very short wall to shoot the myriad of zombies coming at you. Even if you’re not necessarily sure about whether or not Kinect is worth its price it’s hard to deny how awesome this game will be.
It seems we’re getting a new zombie game every week with Amazing Zombie Defense, Dead Island and Class3 revealed in the last month. The quality of the aforementioned games is yet to be determined but if anything, this is a damn fine time to be a zombie fan. READ MORE
is posting about a Gears Of War game in development for the Kinect. They have heard this from a source who is said to be close to the project. It looks to be a rail shooter, where presumably the player takes control of the gun. I’m still curious to see how it will be smoothly pulled off.
It is nice to see that a more adult title is in development for the Kinect, rather than all the Wii feeling happy family games. I want to use the Kinect to kick some alien ass, not just float down a river on a raft with my girlfriend. READ MORE
That picture grab your attention? Since you’re here….Well Microsoft and Xbox 360 kicked 2010′s ass last year. In the 1st 60 days of it’s release, 8 million Kinects were sold. They have broken 50 million in console sales. They are 30 million Xbox Live Members strong.
We can also expect to see Hulu Plus this spring, and that AND Netflix will be synced up with the Kinect, so you can browse movies and tv shows with the flick of your wrist. Also coming in spring will be Avatar Kinect. It will be free and a “social entertainment experience” where you can control your Avatars body movements and facial expressions. With Nintendo and Sony releasing new handhelds soon, that leaves one question. Where is my handheld Xbox 180? READ MORE
GWAR is nearly finished with the touring cycle for their latest album, ‘Bloody Pit Of Horror’. However, that doesn’t mean that it’s all work for the band. Sometimes, you just need to cut loose and bust out some dance moves on the Xbox Kinect. You can check out the ludicrous video HERE.
If you were under the assumption that because Kinect doesn’t have controllers it wouldn’t bring with it a wave of useless peripherals, the cleverly titled Game Boat would like to prove you wrong. This third party peripheral is truly ingenious because while at first glance it looks like a small raft, it’s actually been specifically designed to work in your living room.
Unlike other floatation devices, the scientists at Atomic Accessories have toiled away for days (possibly even weeks to bestow upon us the Game Boat, a peripheral that helps immerse you in the game by giving you something to… jump on? So, is anyone interested in this, and if you are, can I ask you something? Why, oh God WHY?! READ MORE
Tokyo Game Show is here and so far it’s the most exciting gaming event of the year, for horror fans at least. The most exciting news, at least for me, was the unveiling of the collaborative effort between Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, No More Heroes creator Suda51, and Silent Hill composer/producer Akira Yamaoka: the new action horror project, officially dubbed Shadows of the Damned.
But that’s certainly not it, there’s also been news on Resident Evil 6, Dead Space 2 multiplayer details, the exciting reveal of Project Dark by the guys who made the amazing Demon’s Souls, a Devil May Cry reboot, and two limb-flailing horror games for the Kinect. READ MORE
Haunt will be a not so scary Xbox 360 Kinect horror game. It looks like in the game you will be exploring a cartoony haunted mansion. The game looks to be 1st person type exploration. Nothing much else is known. No release date either. Trailer below, screens past the break.
It’s safe to say The Big Three brought their A games to this year’s biggest gaming expo. After the last couple years of resting on their laurels, Nintendo really kicked ass with some seriously jaw-dropping announcements tailored to excite their audience, rather than their investors. Nintendo wasn’t alone though, as Microsoft threw out more than their fair share of surprises including the long anticipated Xbox 360 redesign (and might I say how sexy the new, slimmer 360 is?), and Sony gave us an upgraded PSN as well as the delicious Twisted Metal.
But that’s just the pre-E3 conferences, there’s still the actual Electronic Entertainment Expo that managed to give us even more tasty, video game goodness. So with all the goods that E3 brought us this year, what were the craziest, most insanely unpredictable unveilings? TJ and I have ranked the ten announcements that left us picking our jaws off the floor, let’s see if you agree. READ MORE
A huge huge thing this year being shown at E3 is Microsoft’s Kinect. Previously known as Project Natal. If you aren’t already in the loop, Kinect is the next big step in gaming. No controllers, it’s all about doing everything with the wave of a hand or movement of your body.
You can “kinect” to your friends on live and play games together as well. Head past the break for some screens and more info on Kinect than you can handle. READ MORE
You know E3 is right around the corner when the Big Three come together to unveil some of their biggest announcements at their annual pre-E3 press conferences. The first of the three was Microsoft and in case you missed the event I’ve watched it all the way through, fifteen times (Ok, not really), scouring over every detail big and small, to make sure I could convey to you, dear reader, every tidbit of information gleaned from the conference.
Obviously Microsoft’s focus this year was going to be on showcasing the Xbox 360’s newest limb-flailing tech, the newly dubbed Kinect (previously Natal). It seems soon after we’ve all gotten used to Natal as a name we’ve been thrown something else that, for some of us, might take some time to warm up to. After the jump you’ll find Kinect’s launch date, info on its launch titles, details on upcoming Xbox 360 titles (Metal Gear Solid: Rising has watermelons!), and the long expected slimmed down 360 hardware.
