Kinect Joy Ride trailer

Kinect Joy Ride trailer

Because we are very open-minded, we won't judge Kinect Joy Ride before trying it but let's face it, it is unlikely it will appeal to gamers like us for more than a few races. However, you might unlock an achievement if you manage to watch the entire trailer without wanting to slap the boy's face for being terribly annoying. Expect some family fun in front of the TV set as soon as Nomvember 2010!

This trailer does not compute.
Why would both kids celebrate if one won the race and the other lost ? I am not familiar with this "feeling".

I'm beginning to think that I'd actually prefer playing "games" with two dildos in my hands than this crap.

I'm so not liking this. The boy is not that annoying. All that comes to my mind is that I think he looks French.

Are there people stupid enough on this planet that they actually buy in to this kind of crap commercial? I guess it want's to communicate some sort of ideal wholesome american family values or some shit like that but it's just ridiculous beyond beliefe.

The game also looks like poo, why would i pay 50 bucks for a shitty cartracer on the 360 when i have a wii with mother***** Mariokart right here? To add something to that point, i freaking hate the wii adn i still ahve one, so if MS are planning on selling htat pice of crap camera with shovelware like this, well then i've got some news for you (though it's not much in terms of news since literally everybody and his grandma got this point around 5 seconds in to their E3 briefing).

Unless Dance Central sells natals like freaking hotcakes or the next generation of titles are mindbendingly genial, i can't see this thing doing anything other than a fullfledged 32x.

I think you know where i stand on this now :P

Game Of The Decade. I just wonder if all of it was using ingame engine because boys face was so damn real. Ohh...just to let You know my fellow gamersyders this video isnt proper ( original is like 10 secs longer and

**SPOILER WARING**

it ends with frag blowing all those beautiful faces )

**END OF SPOILER**

Nonetheless this game is mindblowing (literally)

OMFG !1!! THE CARZ HAZ NO DAMAGE AND THE JUMPS R NOT REALIZTICK !!!! THIS GAME SUCKS !!11!

On a more serious note, wouldn't it be very hilarious to see a random guy coming in and kicking the creepy kid in the head, really hard ? Right when it's in slow motion, that would be great...

No, a bulldozer ought to just plow through the entire set, preferably in slowmotion showing the suprise and dread of the family as their lives are crushed into dust, then some guy comes up with a new 360, a steering wheel and pops in and plays Forza 3 instead. Maybe masterchief chan jump down from a dropship and yell something about hardcore and pwning or something, just to really accentuate that Kinect is shit.

No wait, screw that. The cameraman just jumps in to the dropship and then they play Forza 3 in space, while dogfighting some covenant ships.

Go back a year and check the E3 2009 videos on Joy Ride and it actually looked pretty damn good. Turn the clock forward a year and it looks awful. The track design, which seemed to be great before probably doesn't work that well with Kinect. And it looks like they turned down the speed as well.

I'm no hater on Kinect, I actually look forward to it, but holding up your arms pretending them to be a steering wheel will never be a good idea.

I scoffed at the wii just the same. While this ad did make me want to punch my screen I will wait to see what other content they have... Actually I will be honest I am not buying the damn thing lol.

so you are fine standing up for an hour playing a racing game you could play relaxing? and the kinect adds nothing to the game. only fanboys could defend such abysmal design

i can understand standing up for tennis games etc as thats the point but for a racing game? NAH GTFO of here with that nonsense. even in REAL LIFE you dont stand up while driving

Why do we have chairs at all, are you that fat and lazy? Just stand all the time you lazy bastard.

Let's face it, you don't want to play a goddamn racing game standing up, it's not comfortable. The other games, the ones that require you to move your entire body, those i can understand but this shit can fuck right off. Not that im defending the other asinine shovelware though, those sucks in their own right even if the standing up argument doesn't apply.
