I’m not really a console guy. I have a Wii I got for my wedding and had some limited fun with it, but that’s it. However following the Double Fine Adventure Kickstarter I discovered the various games that Double Fine had on offer, and Happy Action Theatre made me feel that Kinect was the next step up from the Wii, and that my kids might like it.
So I finally gave in and spent $470 on an 4GB Xbox + Kinect bundle (the Xbox is very expensive here in Israel) and one of the first things I did was download the demo. My four year old daughter wanted to play it again and again so I spent the $10 to buy the game and we had a couple of hours of fun, with the 2.5 year old joining in but not really understanding (he went to the TV and tried to grab the balloons).
I don’t know how much use it will get, and I wish the language barrier wasn’t there for Once Upon a Monster, but I’m looking forward to Kinect Party.
