Kinect Hardware Review and Game Impressions

Microsoft's answer to motion control gaming is here with the Kinect. Combining a video camera with voice control and facial recognition, the Kinect looks to revolutionize the way we interact with our video games. But does it deliver on that experience, or is it merely a gimmick?

This Week In Co-Op: Gears of War 2 Quiz

This past weekend was a 31 times XP modifier for Gears of War 2.  Tally and Marc, determined to get in on the mega-leveling action, logged in only to discover the weekend actually ended on Sunday, not Monday, as previously expected.  Undaunted, they played Horde mode, assisted by Marc's youngest son, and had a thoroughly enjoyable time on the Normal mode of the Day One map.  Instead of a detailed report, Tally and Marc teamed up in true co-op fashion to bring you the Official Co-Optimus Gears of War Co-Op Quiz.  So grab a pencil, put all four legs of your chair on the floor,  and keep your eyes on your own paper.

Mindjack Gets a Release Date, Co-Op Details

A game that has slipped by our collective co-op radar is one from publisher Square-Enix called Mindjack.  The 3rd person action game's premise has players using the ability to jump between NPC characters by controlling their mind.  A neat gimmick - but there's a catch.  Up to six players can control characters in the game at any time - three for the red side and three for the blue side.  These players will drop-in and drop-out seamlessly via Xbox Live or PlayStation Network for a three player co-op experience.

StarCraft II Free Name Change is Now Live

It was over two months ago that we told you about the free name change feature coming to StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty.  That is, the one time free name change that Blizzard was going to offer for those of you like me, that accidently chose the wrong name for your Battle.Net account.  That feature is now live, to activate it you'll need to log into your Battle.Net account via the website and click the link that says FREE Character Name Change.

Sonic Free Riders Co-Op Trailer, First Review

Microsoft's Kinect launches tomorrow and sadly there's very few co-op titles to play.  But if you are looking to flail around your living room to a classic Sega franchise with a friend on a virtual hoverboard - look no further than Sonic Free Riders.    As Tally previewed in our coverage of the game, there's two modes of co-op play.  In one mode called Tag Racing players can join hands and fuse their boards to get extra speed while racing.  In another mode called Relay, players race in a typical relay like fashion to win the race.

4 Player Co-Op Retro Shmup Hypership Out of Control Hits Xbox Indie

Xbox Live's Indie Games are generally a mixed bunch; there are some truly awesome games available (like Shoot 1UP and Sol Survivor) but unfortunately all manner of inane cash grabs as well.  We just received word of a title that looks to be in the former group.  Hypership Out of Control is a retro-styled shooter, and would have fit right in with other arcade games from the early 1980s.  Unlike those Golden Age classics, though, Hypership allows four players to play at the same time.  The best part is that the game cost only 80 MS points, which is exactly what it would have cost 4 players to play a game once in an arcade back in 1982.  A trial version is available for the especially frugal.  We've got a small gallery of screenshots for you, plus the trailer, which includes plenty of satirical humor along with the awesome vintage game music.
