Nice to see Dennis Rodman collecting a paycheck. That he will probably blow on expensive high-heels.

Might be relevant to the Dead Sea Scrolls in some loose way. Not familiar with the Red. "
Bah, that's what I meant. And I'm a religious studies major too. :P

" I'm a little confused. The page for this game said it's being made by Ignition. Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe were Capcom. The video's caption says from the makers of DMC and VJ.  But hey. It looks really nice. "
Those dudes left Capcom after the whole Clover thing didn't work out.

It also makes no sense, like they chose it because they think it sounds cool. But whatever, still interested to see how it turns out. "

To Brad (and others who question if its too soon for Assassin's Creed): Remember that Vice City came out a year after GTA3.

I think that the Kinect stuff was most impressive on the UI front. Between being able to voice commands (and the fact that it only activates when you say "X-Box" is a smart move, so that you don't trigger it with random words you say in casual conversation) to Minortiy Reporting your way through menus, and the new Kinetic-friendly windows screen (which, I concur with Jeff, will be more filled with ad-space than they're current showing.) Add the addition ESPN content and what looks like could be the BEST video conferencing software around (that tracking tech, where it follows where you move is pretty fantastic, plus just being able to conference on your TV), I am heartily impressed.  
 
I think the sense of disappointment is largely because the motion control games are all fairly standard mini-game fair that we've seen before. Even the stuff with Forza didn't really thrill me; the only thing that really grabbed me was the Ubisoft work out game, and that was just because I need to get in shape and that looks like a very intelligent tool. But again...not really game. The X-Box has always secretly been Microsoft's stealth media device, serving as the central hub for all your entertainment. Video games are increasingly becoming a partial piece of the X-Box experience. So the Kinect, in turn, makes the 360 a much more compelling media machine, even if the game-applications are rather lack-luster at the moment.
