Yeah, check GameFaqs.. I remember people getting stuck there.. and the people who swore they had to play the game when they found out about said scene.
Anyways, if you have a kid and a Kinect, you NEED to get Double Fine's (Psychonauts, Brütal Legend, etc) Happy Action Theater. LOTS of fun stuff..
Happy Action Theater is an open-ended game, providing eighteen different modes that incorporate features of the Kinect motion-sensing and camera system. Players can select any one of the eighteen modes, or opt to have the game randomly select modes and cycle through them every few minutes. The game can support the tracking of up to 6 players.
Within most modes there are no goals, only to perform certain actions for the Kinect as to create humorous results in a form of augmented reality on the console's display. For example, one mode simulates a flow of lava that fills the player's room on the game's screen, and depicts the player within it. From here, the player can kick at rocks that float on the lava, interact with small animated flame sparks that jump around, or by "immersing" themselves in the lava, can have their hands temporarily shoot fireballs to "wipe out" other players on screen for a short period of time. Another mode simulates Space Invaders, with the players required to hold their hands up and move about as to destroy attacking forces on screen; while a score is kept, the mode is endless. The game does include a limited number of achievements for certain actions.
GAMEPLAY: (30 min)
Mostly mini-game stuff, but done very well. 800 points. Demo is on XBL.
There also seems to be a video walkthrough here:
Hope that helps.
So I got Marvel vs. Capcom 3 last night. Very fun thus far.
I think this is my wants list:
Assassin's Creed II
Xbox World Magazine Rumor:
If they use that Chatpad plug in, it could work.The next Xbox will be a matt-black media hub with a mission to bring games to life in your living room with augmented reality, directional sound, and a four-player finger-tracking Kinect. We told you all that last month. This month, our sources tell us it will have a touchscreen, too.
Microsoft are experimenting with a tablet-like controller with a shape closer to Sony's sleek Vita handheld / Apple's iPad than Wii U's bulky unit - it's an HD screen surrounded by the traditional 360 buttons and sticks.
On 360 that touchscreen will be second only to Kinect in how you operate your console. It could be a remote control when you're watching TV, a browser when you're on the internet, extra buttons and information when playing a game or a portable display when you want to take your game with you.
Expect to see the next Xbox at E3 this June.
Gotta love the next gen rumor phase
