Sigh I find it strange the only thing I want to do with the clone thigamajig is make a human centipede, I can finally live my dream of being a mad scientist.

So fucking glad I'm not the only one that though of that

I actually thought of a human centipede idea as well when Patrick went to the floor and then the next picture was him grabbing his bum.

Woah, that's Tim Schafer. I still hard to believe Giant Bomb could call the man behind Psychonauts and he would come and play his new game with them. That's amazing :O

The dance party cracked me up :D

It seems quite impressive from a technical stand point but I can't imagine the novelty would last long.

Never thought I would be impressed by a Kinect game. That looks actually fun.

Is it just me, or does Tim Schafer look kinda like King Buzzo from the Melvins?

I don't feel any shame in saying that this is the best most entertaining use of Kinect in ways that only Kinect could manage that I've seen , and I've seen 3D porn mocap based on Kinect.
 
Which I should feel shame in saying..

I can see this game being really popular at a party when people are drunk. The dancing game looked really cool.

I don't know who this Tim Schaefer guy is, but I think they should get the real face of Double Fine down here, Brad Muir!

I loved it when Patrick popped out of the lava, shot out a bunch of fire and flew back in

Wow... That dance sequence was soooooooo Psychonauts! Damn it Tim, stop teasing me and give me Psychonauts 2 already!

Not gonna lie, I didn't realize that it was Patrick wearing a hotdog suit and 3D glasses at first. I thought it was a woman who worked at Double Fine that wore Hipster glasses and dressed weird for the occasion since this is a weird "game." I was halfway through the video until I realized it was him.

This seems like a lot of fun. I don't know if I would buy a Kinect for it, though. I can think of 4 games I would play with it, but I'm worried it'll just gather dust like the party games on my wii.

DF and GB both created their niche with doing what they love, always great to see them team up!

Both teams are great examples that you can make a living and still have fun - very inspiring.

And what a fun use of kinect, especially for children, and / or drunks :)

I assume that someday soon Ryan is going to stumble upon that time machine that he uses to go back in time, change his name to Tim Schafer and use his future knowledge to get a job at LucasArts.

This is awesome ... Tim seems to be in a constant state of confusion though. Judging by his expressions. That makes this even funnier.

Isn't a little late to still be in the "Kinect Tech Demo-style game" phase? Shouldn't they (developers) be applying this tech to full games already? Possibly creating new genres with it? Or are western developers, in general, just that lazy? That all they see is this motion tech and all they can do is make mini game collections?

No. I think we're still there and I can understand why. Granted, Super Mario 64 did 3D platforming right straight away which was pretty incredible but I think this tech is so different that to really use it well and work out the best ways to use it is going to take some iterations (and may not be worked out at all).

The first 'activity' is perhaps my favourite still. There's sooo much different stuff you could do with that especially when using props. I loved the Luchadeer with a body creation and you could expand on that by replacing all your limbs with other things. Also the whole thing with Kinect detecting you going into lava and then giving you special powers afterwards including being able to disintegrate people was really cool. More ideas like that and we could really be onto something.

Very fun QL and great banter. The activities shown seemed like they ranged from very intuitive and fun for a couple of minutes to actually fairly deep for what Kinect can handle. On first glance this looks like one of the first games I've seen that gets what you can do with motion controls without getting very frustrating.

Also, great finish with lots and lots of balls. Perfect way to end another excellent video.

Oh, man, this QL had me in stitches. Such a dumb, and perfect, use of Kinect. And a perfect fit as GB content.
 
It's just a tech-demo, in a sense, sure, but Kinect can't really do proper games, and never will, in my opinion. This is perfect for smaller children wanting to vent and fling around the living room. Older children play Modern Warfare like everyone else, so Kinect isn't really made for them either. Double Fine has realized what, and who, Kinect is for, and are creating "games" focused on messing around, with the price-tag of 10 bucks - not 60 bucks like most other things. This is one of the reasons I find Double Fine to probably be the best Kinect developer there is, at this moment.

I love that Giant Bomb has such great relations with studios that they bring special versions of games with Giant Bomb references included.
