    Final nail in the coffin for my DBZ fandom, right there.

    That's two childhood franchises Kinect has killed.
    It doesn't look much fun, but the technology is sure impressive!

    You're likely right about the lawn part, though.
    You make a good point. Although video games that use unconventional control schemes have evolved somewhat since the days of the NES Power Glove or those VHS light gun games to give two examples, there's still a ways to go before they're anything but an only occasionally fun gimmick.

    I still think the dance competition sections of Star Wars Kinect are comedy gold, but then I stopped being an active fan of Star Wars around the time I realized I had no interest in seeing Revenge of the Sith. Still haven't seen it.

    It's been a good series. I've not seen a lot of Phoenix this year, and I have to say over all I've been impressed. How many games do you think Torres will get?

    If you want to enjoy Revenge of the Sith, ignore the movie and read the book by Matt Stover.

    And I've been tormenting the wife with the Han Solo song in the last few days.

    As for Kinect: they actually could have made it work the way originally intended. It's just that they removed the internal processing chip for cost cutting and made it run off the 360's own processor, which dramatically lowers its ability to track and read motions. It's also the reason for the motion lag.

    Y'know that thing I said that got you offended? I was just joking.

    I am literally having one of the worse days of my entire life.

    And I have at least another 10-12 hours work ahead of me to look forward to.

    Kinect. Explaining why there's a lag. It's a lot better than cursing our demo. Which I think we'll be on our third by the time summer starts.

    Can't sell the star wars movies. We don't reliably replenish our stock on things like that.

    gryhpon wants suggestions:

    Tchaikovsky and Beethoven. I, personally, find emotionally stirring instrumental music to be more "inspiring" than modern songs with lyrics.
