Puppy > bunny. (Bunnies taste good.)

My Kinect has been gathering dust since Dance Central 2. Let's do this.

THR1LLHOUSE4491d ago

Wait...Peter Molyneux says his new game is going to do crazy amazing stuff that will blow everyone away? I DON'T BELIEVE IT.

OmegaSaiyanX4491d ago

Exactly since he has been saying this since Fable 1 and hasnt actually ever produced a Fable game that lives up to what he says I will take it that its gonna be another all talk no action type of game and be totally underwhelming.

Although to admit he is rather entertaining to listen to its just a shame he cannot put that same entertainment into his games.

I mean look at Kingdoms Of Amalur first game and a success, Peter has had 3 attempts and failed at each one.

THR1LLHOUSE4491d ago

I wouldn't say he failed, but when he hypes up his games so much they're going to be disappointing even if they're really good.

Still, I'm kinda glad he's a bit of a character. Devs with personality are *always* better than those without. That's why I love Kojima so much.

Fishy Fingers4491d ago

Of course it will Pete.... Of course it will...

PooEgg4491d ago

It is sort of sad that although I have bought every Fable game in the past, I have no interest in this one. But I guess this is good news for people who enjoy Kinect.

Top 10 Worst Kinect Games

Alex S. from Link-Cable writes: "A few days ago, Microsoft announced that they were officially discontinuing their Kinect motion-sensing accessory. What was once considered a chief-rival to Nintendo’s Wii revolution and an integral part of the Xbox One’s launch has come to an end, and we here at Link-Cable… couldn’t be happier. The Kinect, while sporting impressive technology never managed to live up to its full potential and most of the games released for the device either had shoe-horned in support or barely functioned as intentioned, in part because of the device’s very specific ideal conditions. So as the Kinect sails off into sunset, we’ve decided to remember the worst of times and look back at the Top 10 Worst Kinect games."

Kinect, for me, is easily worth owning for two things: Dance Central for me acting like an idiot and having fun, and Kinect Party for my kids when they want to have easy-access stupid fun at like a kid's party. Those were the only games I have enjoyed on it, and they couldn't be done any other way (well, I guess that KP is EyeToy-level work). But my hope is that when motion control falls away, we'll get a proper DDR again.

andrewsquall2411d ago (Edited 2411d ago )

Yet for 150 quid it is and was most certainly not worth owning for solely those 2 games, that you have to pay money for also.

Now far be it from me to tell you what is worth it or not worth it to you. But if that is what is worth it to you, I don't want to know what ISN'T worth it lol.

RyanDJ2410d ago

It was worth it to buy one used for half price and get one of those two games for free. ;)

datriax2411d ago

All of them are tied for 1st place.

darthv722411d ago

Star wars wouldnt be so bad if it didnt have.... the dancing. Ughhh that dancing.

They should do a list of 10 best kinect games as well. I'm sure fruit ninja and gun stringer would be on there. Those are actually fun to play.

Would you say absolutely horrible hyperbole? :D

4Sh0w2577d ago (Edited 2577d ago )

Halo 5?....pffft to each his own but Halo 5 is a great game, every Xbox owner I know enjoyed it, the campaign was nice I like the teamwork concept and the multiplayer keeps 'em coming back with great gameplay & modes so much content, 343 did a helluva job.

Christopher2577d ago

@4Show: Uh... going to assume that's a comment intended for someone else.

spicelicka2577d ago

Not Halo 5. It had a bad story COMPARED to past games but it didn't have a bad story overall. The gameplay was top notch, and multiplayer is still one of the best on the market right now. Custom games browser is the single greatest thing 343 did which I'm grateful for.

ninsigma2577d ago

Nah it really was a bad campaign. MP was great but seriously, that was a hugely terrible story mode.

spicelicka2576d ago

The story maybe, but some of the missions were extremely fun. The Sangehlios ones are right up there with the best missions in the franchise.

Kingthrash3602577d ago

Halos mp was great but became boring quicker than most.
The story. Naw that was bad and it's marketing was a lie. Made it seem like old master chief was gunna fight that new fake master chief but the conflict ended up being a one punch cgi sequence.
Not to mention fighting the same boss over and over and over....plus add the no split screen mp and whala! You got the worst canon halo ever made

brich2332577d ago

Compared to Halo 4, Halo 5's story was trash and not memorable at all.

ninsigma2576d ago

That's not really saying much though cuz that was pretty bad as well.
