    Kinect Demo 

    Xbox Kinect was shown off earlier today at a local shopping center. Quite a bit of interest, I was impressed but not impressed enough to buy it!

      The best part is when the girl spins around to make the car spin. Hey! Keep your eyes on the road, missy! lol

    10 of the best multiplayer experiences 

    I just spotted a two page feature in GamesTM listing their top 10 multiplayer games:

    1. Mario Kart
    2. Bomberman
    3. Street Fighter
    4. Halo
    5. Micro Machines
    6. Battlefield
    7. Worms
    8. Pac-man Vs
    9. Team Fortress 2
    10. Starcraft

    What? No Modern Warfare 2? Surely they jest!! OMG WTF!

    Anyway, the list above reminded me I had the Orange Box for the Xbox, and included on that compilation is Team Fortress 2. Ihaveneverplayedit! Yes, I have never played it! I also only played Portal on my Macbook with frustrating teeth grinding slow results.

    Will I play TF2? I’d like to but probably not unless someone volunteers to join me in a game.

    Edit: I found this video of Team Fortress 2, uploaded earlier today so looks like an active community still!

      I’ve seen footage of TF2, but never played it. It looks like it would be quite fun though….. but 360.

        And I knew there was something else I meant to say:

        MarioKart….. #1!? Really?

        • Donncha 6:50 pm on June 16, 2010 Permalink

          I know! I played it a few times but for all the interaction with other players I could be playing a single player game!

          Of the games listed, I’ve only played Mario Kart and Battlefield. I really have to give Halo a go sometime, and of course TF2.

      I’ve only played a couple of them myself, so here’s my opinion on them:
      1. Mario Kart – like you said, but with cheating douches included
      2. Bomberman – there’s a multiplayer in Bomberman? Are we talking about the c64 version?
      3. Street Fighter – Was never any good at it, so my experience is tarnished with arse handings.
      4. Halo – never liked it due to it being Fastest Finger Wins to me.
      5. Micro Machines – never played it
      6. Battlefield – only played BFBC2, and we know how we all feel about that.
      7. Worms – played against friends on the original Playstation and then Worms 3D on the Gamecube – a good fun game. AI is a complete pig-dog though!
      8. Pac-man Vs – never heard of it.
      9. Team Fortress 2 – not played it
      10. Starcraft – not played it.

      I just remembered. I played Micro Machines, but the original game on the Amiga which was a blast. It had on-the-same-screen multiplayer but I think they probably meant a later iteration!

      Bomberman is awesome. There’s a great version of it on XBLA.

      Understatement of the decade so far!

    Goodbye Halo 2, I never played thee but many will miss you. Meanwhile here’s some fun with the physics engine in the game blowing things up! (via)

    PS3 Motion Controller 

    I really don’t get Natal, the Xbox camera system that allows you to interact with the system. I mean, you need a trigger don’t you? I just came across this video of the PS3 motion controller from E3 last year. Impressive stuff, looks like a more accurate version of the Wii controller.

      I still don’t buy any kind of motion capture/interactive movement tool as something that will become a staple with hardcore gamers – I will never play a FPS game like this.

        COD WAW on the Wii was actually great fun and accurate enough too. It did have the auto aim of course that the xbox single player game has but I found it easier to play.
