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.

They're like the mid-ride photos from theme parks, except even goofier.  Looks like Ryan was having fun though... Gotta count for something, right?

I like your New Balance shoes Ryan.  Anyways, you guys actaully didn't tear apart kinect.  Why?  Is it really a game changer?  Is there anything that is now brought to the table that has more staying power than a 20-minute "that was kind of neat" moment that you might do once again in 6 months to show grandma at Christmas and then shelve it?  I just don't see myself investing in all this motion and really getting anything huge out of the experience.  Plus now, they are going to have another reason to charge extra for these games; and I am paying for something that I probably am not even going to use, nor want in the first place.

@Ryan : Btw, how's the latency? Is it as bad as it looked on the press conference? >_>

I can't decide if I like #3 or #4 better. 
Now imagine the game automatically posting these pictures to Facebook - which is probably going to happen at some point.

I can't wait for the videos! 
Video reviews and Quick Looks of the future are going to be way more interesting.

The 3rd picture is awesome. If I ever meet the GB crew in person, I want Ryan to sign a 8x11" copy of that image.

Third picture has obvious awesomeness.
Although I like the first one.  I like that the other guy appears to be jumping while Ryan is staring confusedly at the screen.

I know sounds like a conspiracy theory but doesn't it look like Ryan's press tag is trying to choke him?
This must be part of Microsoft's master plan - unconspicuously kill Ryan with a choking press tag before he can get the truth out about Kinect.
