Gonna go play with Kinect at the Mall of America.

Posted by nukesniper (1312 posts) -

So, my girlfriend played Kinect (specifically Ubisoft's Your Shape) at the Mall of America yesterday and she really liked it. She said she might invest in the Kinect stuff, which excites me as I won't have to buy one then. :) 
 
So, I'm gonna head to the Mall of America today to get some hands on time with the Kinect and see how it feels. My girlfriend and I agree that the prospect of Kinect bringing fitness videos into games in a way that you can't cheat is a pretty neat feature. I cheated like hell when I played WiiFit, so I'm hoping I have fun with Kinect. 
 
Anyways, GB, the part you care about is that if you are in the Minneapolis area you can totally mess around with the Kinect, as my girlfriend said the lines weren't that long.  
 
Ask questions and I'll answer them when I get back. Note: apparently they only have Your Shape, so that's all Ill be able to answer for.

Hmm I live about 15 minutes away from the mall. Maybe on my day off I might have to check it out and see what it's all about.

Go for it. MoA has 4 kinects set up. I played Your Shape and that Ricochet game today, but they have Dance Central and the Tennis / Bowling game there as well. I got pictures of Sharky (Shark mascot for Underwater World) dancing to Poker Face. So, winning situation for me. I'm gonna put those in my next blog post once i get them on this computer.
