Pretty cool.

Hopefully trends like this means that difficult games that require a challenge and a guide will actually make a comeback.

That sounds awesome. That'd be cool if Achievement Hunter pushed out an app like this. And if there was a section where you could just watch Michael Rage Quit videos, and you could just watch him struggle as you're going through the same game, or something. Fails of The Weak.

Or Obama playing GTA5. That was actually pretty funny. Ahh Youtube...always get sidetracked.

On that note, I wonder if Kinect will support word search and how good it will work. Will be amazing for browsing Youtube in the livingroom. Or Giant Bomb. Not to mention, would be great for GameFAQs as well, since I see myself using that more. Hmm...GameFAQs should add Kinect voice recognition tabs for X1 game guides. Wait a sec, this could give birth to some shake-up in videogame websites, can't it?

I wonder if I could say ..."Xbox go to Giant Bomb. Xbox One forum. Thread 3. Reply. Xbox, write." And then dictate something.

That's pretty cool. Hopefully the YouTube, IE and other potential "help" or companion apps will be as intelligent as this Machinima one seems to be. I could easily see myself looking up an FAQ for a difficult game and snapping it, or maybe just a quick look or some video related to the game I'm playing. Hopefully I won't damage my attention span more than it already has been.

Nothing bad here. This actually looks cool. I'm suspicious........what's the kicker?

Did that guy try as hard as he possibly could to sound like Lester?

really cool !

Like Blu3V3nom07 said, with achievement guide type content this would really be cool. (Now I have my iPhone next to me when collecting feathers/orbs or whatever)

A Giant Bomb snap app would be really fun for Thursday Night Throwdowns. You could be playing Forza, Killer Instinct, Battlefield etc. with the guys while having the stream open in snap mode.

True. That snap mode is something I despise in Win8, but on the console, I think it's incredibly brilliant.

@sentuamessage: Hey, duder, pro tip: maybe don't post fat fucking ads for your website (complete with banner!) in every post you make. Not an awesome way to make a good first impression on people.
