E3photo demo Fable: The Journey is more fun than it has a right to be

It’s hard not to be skeptical of most Kinect games.  While the Kinect has a lot of potential, it really hasn’t been utilized well with perhaps the exception of Harmonix’s Dance Central games.  When Fable: The Journey was announced last year, it’s not surprising that gamers were underwhelmed.  When they had a demo for it available, I really didn’t think I’d be that impressed.  However, once I got a handle on the controls, I felt like I was actually casting spells and destroying enemies with ease.  I walked away happily surprised, although I admit that it did give my arms a bit more of a workout than I had expected because I really was throwing my arms around.  If you have a Kinect, then check out my session at E3 and see how well it worked, as well as a brief Q&A with someone from Lionhead Studios.
