" I get tired just watching these motion games.  I play video games to relax, not for exercise.  These motion games look poorly produced, light, half-baked versions of whole games. No interest. "
You didn't watch the video, did you?

"The use of the word "janky" by anyone on this site is merely imitation of the GB crew. The very same people that bash Sony for copying motion controls use this word coined by GB as if it were their own way of saying "I'm GB crew too yo!" "

I don't tend to use the term, but it really wasn't "coined" by GiantBomb. I've heard developers using the term in the exact same context for over a decade now.  On topic: Like all of this motion controlled stuff, the proof will be in the hands-on experience. Looks neat tho. "
Sure... out in the real world. But here on GB it gets used because Ryan and Jeff use it. All the cool kids are doing it... apparentely.

On topic: I think this was an excellent demonstration of what Move can do. I still don't like motion-controlled games but for what it is, it looks great. "
Same here, motion-controlled games don't really appeal to me, at least for the time being. But the game does look good.

Looks fun.

This is a perfect example of what developers should be doing with their products.

looks interesting. If there are other Move games that I like, I may pick this up.

Well, whilst I do see your point, even if a word is made up, regardless of where, why can't people use it? 
Slang is Slang, so what if it is because Jeff and Ryan use it, it is a good slang word to describe something that doesn't look right, 
 
In this case I would not use the word janky to describe the video shown, it looks kind of neat,  
 
Looking further into your comment though, of users copying phrases or using the quotes of GB's staff, so what? do you really care if users use them? I quote movies with my friends and I sometimes use movie lines in context when describing something, does that make me a bad person? no, Hell sometimes I use phrases that the staff have coined, on the forums, because in certain situations it might be funny, or might provide some context to what I am trying to say. 
  
 
Unless you mean for users just randomly copying the staff's opinions or saying one thing then changing their mind once the staff change theirs, that is their prerogative, Opinions are opinions and if someone is easily swayed, let them be easily swayed, If people can't think for themselves why try and force them to see your point of view?

Doing dirt as a rat!

It's kinda nice to see they're still making games for kids. Doesn't look amazing, but if it works it seems kinda fun.

LMAO at the jealous fanboys. Awesome game.

Posted by Korne

That actually looks pretty damn fun...  
 
Too bad I really don't want to get the controller. If I could rent the game, I would, but $90 is too much.

Posted by Carlos1408

That looks really cool. If I had the money for both the game and moce and it turned out to be as awesome as it looks i would get that.

Posted by Brodehouse

That shit looks mad dope. 
 
Haters gonna hate.

Posted by Andheez

Looks alright.  The only real problem I have is that the motion controls are pointless.  You could just as easily map those to buttons.  I think it would have been much cooler and controller appropriate if you didn't have to go to the radial menu to change spells.  They should all just be mapped to different move patterns.  I think this shows that there are limitations with the move, because I think doing that would make perfect sense, I just think they wouldn't differentiate the movements enough for everything to be distinct.  As far as I can tell this could be a Wii game.

um, no

Doesn't look very good. Just not very interesting.

Posted by cassus

I like this. The spell combining idea is great. Been waiting for stuff like that to become popular for ages. Seems like the spells are auto targeting or something though? 
 
Very immersive none the less. Great use of the new tech, and not just in a half assed tech demo way like what the Kinect games showed off.

Posted by Capum15

Wow, that looks pretty cool, the Firestorm combination was great.

This game looks great. Fun enough for kids and techy enough for adults.
