Ryan's Kinect Adventures

Ryan got to play Kinect Adventures himself today. Here's photographic proof!

I got to try out Microsoft's full suite of Kinect games today, including Dance Central, Kinect Adventures, Kinectimals, Kinect Sports, Kinect Joy Ride, and Your Shape: Fitness Evolved, and once I wring all the sweat out of this now completely ruined shirt, I'll try and have more detailed reports, though I wanted to share these incredibly ridiculous images that Kinect Adventures took of me while I was doing some ridiculous pretend river-rafting. Just think: this holiday season, THIS JACKASS COULD BE YOU.

Haha. Is it bad that probably what will be the best aspect about this game is the ridiculous pictures it takes?

While looking like a jackass is certainly tempting I think I will have to pass.  Thanks for taking a bullet for the team on this one, Ryan.  My life is better for having seen these pictures.

Right, so just to recap: I have to spend today shooping Brad's photobomb 2.0 and now this quartet of handsomely flailing stupidity.

I love that Kinect is actually recording images of you flailing around like an idiot as you play. Insult to injury and all that.

It was their mutual appreciation of "the water" that brought them together.

I think the glass was needed to stop IR interference from the crowd behind them.

Can you automatically send these photos over twitter to annoy the whole world?

I think its fun, games should sometimes make you look like an idiot. Cant wait to get mine. Problem seems to be is that with more and more of these cameras, I cant seem to find place on top of my 32" TV. Was planning to get a new TV but after seeing Sony's press conference I will wait till 3D TVs drop in price to reasonably levels ( 2012 u think ?)

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for physical activity. When a  video games motion controls make me get up, I take issue with it. Jumping around is still an outdoor activity in my mind.

I want Kinect now, if not for the actual games themselves, than just for fun of coming up with the most disgusting and vulgar ways of playing them.

@ThePhantomnaut: Didn't he also get hit by a volcano AND take a stint producing Square Enix's "Chocobros"? The man is invincible.
