Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Do Kinect games suck so much that MS has to pay people to buy them?

dsister said:

I was thinking of Kinectimals, but it doesn't have multiplayer does it? I've been using the Kinect mostly for the multiplayer. =/

 

I was also thinking of Joyride.  Anyone play that? Worth the money? I knew at one point it was free so I'm kind of worried of throwing down the $50 bucks for it. Unless of course, MS pays me again >:3

(On another note: What's the code on the back of the Dance Central instruction guide?)


I see people saying this a lot, it's not exactly true.  The game as it is on the disc was never meant to be free.  What they had originally intended was to give you the base game free, with a couple of modes, limited tracks and limited cars.  Then they were going to be selling new modes, tracks, cars, paintjobs, upgrades etc as microtransactions.   Kind of like Xbox live avatars.  They give you a selection of free stuff and charge you for anything cool.  Plus who knows how much extra stuff they added after changing it to be a Kinect game.

As for the game itself, I only tried the demo and it wasn't nearly as bad as some people had said.  I was able to control the car quite easily and actually thought it was kind of fun.  I would recommend trying the demo out yourself.

my sister is watching this dawn porter crap thing on foxtel (pay tv in aus) after that I will try to type it in... unless... Ill do it online give me about 10 minutes, ill edit this post so recheck it

EDIT: well its not an xbox code that needs more numbers... odd

Hmm. A quick google search says it doesn't do anything. Though the general consensus is that it's an import code for Just Dance 2. 

Though I did find this xD

i played on kinect adventures at a store it had unbearable lag, so i was saved from buying it, thank god for that.

Maybe thats what you wanted to hear lol


very obvious reply from you, please dont comment on things with this blind hatred of yours


how come its blind when my experience was true, are you accusing me of not trying it out??

The store didn't have the Kinect calibrated then.  Kinect is somewhat laggier than a controller but it's certainly not unplayable.  If the lag was that bad then there was something wrong with their setup.

Yes, I knew this. But the question is how much stuff have they added? Have they really added enough stuff to justify the $50 dollars I'll be throwing down on the game?

After a disappointing Burnout I'm really looking for a good little racer!

HAHA that just says about the points, I assume you would have to activate them on the XBOX soon if you want the whole amount lol. 

But yes I found the import thing, my copy and paste doesnt work like it does on firefox, I am on chrome atm and it copies exactly annoyingly.

I also tried it at a friends house where it was properly cablibrated, its still has lag, and it'svery noticeable in multiplayer mode, i think ill just stick to controller as far as kinect is concerned, thanks

I have too many other games to play and not enough hours on the job. Some games have to wait till they are cheaper!
