Obviously one of those 360 'shared' achievements. Have you slapped them yet and said, 'this is why we can't have good games!'?

I would, but I haven't actually had contact with them in 20 years.  I could go back in time and pre-emptively do it, I suppose.

Are sure he is using the term "rocks" in the usual manner. Maybe he means "Hey look I can skip this Star Wars Kinect game across the water like a Rock" or maybe it's opposite day where he lives? But I refuse to accept that someone actually thinks the game Rocks as in it is good.

Going by IGN it's pretty much what I expected:

Closing Comments

If you’re a longtime fan who’s been waiting for a game that’ll let you live out your Star Wars fantasies then the wait is far from over. Kinect Star Wars, with all its control and polish issues, has very limited appeal for an adult audience. Kids will likely find more enjoyment out of it, even the absurd dancing mode, but ultimately its more of a Star Wars-themed set of mediocre mini-games than the jedi epic fans are dying for.

God I hate what's become of the SW license - when I read the part of that review on graphics and framerate issues, I could have sworn I was re-reading the SW Force Unleashed Wii review. I did however quite like how they implemented controls for that game, but it sounds like their results were actually poorer for Kinect. Awesome, now the the Kinect-360 has a blockbuster steaming pile of crap too that will likely dampen 3rd parties' ineterest in developing for it. Can't wait to read about what UBI efforts with Ghost Recon does with it.  Roll Eyes

She's a bit of a housewife.  I know a few housewives who just think Kinect is the greatest thing ever.  Many of them keep mentioning it to me, expecting me to confirm it.  I try not to fly into nerd rage, and mutter something about it not working ideally in my living room, but I've been tempted to see if I can skip their heads over the water like a Rock.

Some of us are waiting for a game that's worthy to purchase for ourselves. I hope this is it.

Don't get me wrong, Steel Battalion is, like, the one game I'm interested in that's coming for Kinect.  I would love for it to sell like crazy and change what Kinect is used for.  It won't.  It won't come even close to what Kinect Star Wars numbers are.

Well it's not like a demo before release would have helped them sell more copies.  Tongue

tried the demo, and the pod racing was OK, the dance section seems to be locked though.
