A Day In The Life: Kinect

A day long running blog. Refresh for latest updates.

10:54PM — Looks like Battle Star is on instant watch. 🙂
10:48PM — I was going to check out some netflix movies but live seems to be down. Hanging out with Cindy. Retiring for the night.

10:36PM — Correction. The dork that use to play xbox all day. Who is now  just a tired little baby nodding off at all hours.

10:30PM — Crisis averted! Found some Honey Smoked turkey Breast meat. Rand al thor’s mothers is better. Not the dude from the dork books but the dork that plays xbox all day.

10:10PM — Cleaned up. Ate some broccoli and an orange. Looking for more food , may need to take a trip to the walmart.

9:14PM — I guess it is time to get cleaned up and eat something.


 8:47PM — If I giveaway 4,000 Microsoft points to the best leapfrog photo would people be interested in participating?
8:41PM — Almost done with exercising. I know this was supposed to be all about kinect. I guess it would have been different if it was new to me. When I got it in the mail a few months ago, I ripped it opened and played for hours. Kinect sports is fun,  has a lot to offer. Bowling is fun. Long jump was hilarious, I almost killed myself trying so hard to beat my previous jumps. Soccer and volleyball were both a lot of fun as well.

7:47PM — Working out and doing a 007: Blood Stone review.

7:34PM — Backyard Football will not be as quick as the first. Still shouldn’t be that bad. EA sports MMA seems pretty good, I need to check out more to get a better idea. A lot of online achievements in that.

 7:25PM — (5) for (60gs) in backyard football: Rookie Rush. I think leapfrog is good for the day. Going to lift real weights. My upper body isn’t sore, it’s my lower body.

7:00PM — Just need a few more achievements for the day to keep the little leapfrog going. The new backyard football is what I will play.

6:58PM — Just tried out the kinect video chat. Pretty cool how it follows you around. Now you can spazz the F out without having to adjust your camera.

6:56PM — I wonder how jealous my cat will be if I play Kinectimals.

 6:13Pm — (2) for (10gs) in The Biggest Loser.

5:45PM — The two biggest losers, playing The Biggest Loser. A Kodak moment.

5:22PM — Ate some cottage cheese. YAY! I will actually play some kinect today. Smrnov and I will be work out buddies on The Biggest Loser. The horror. I told him I will just be sitting there like a beached whale.

 4:43PM — Also installed  Cabelas NA.. I don’t feel like playing much. 4 hours plus of The Biggest Loser over the past 2 days wore me out. Probably going to finish off this piece for games radar then play something.

3:56PM —  (1) for (15gs) in EA sports MMA. Installed backyard sports Football: Rookie Rush which took a whole 50 seconds.

 3:30PM — (4) for (60gs) in EA sports MMA.

2:53PM — Had a roast beast sandwich and a banana.

2:36PM — (3) for (45gs) In EA sports MMA


2:22PM — HOT Tip for megamind to cure the freeze glitch that happens at the end of levels.
DubNut86 says “Hey mate, still having problems with Megamind? My friends playing off a USB drive and is on the 4th level with no problems at all. Just thought i’d let you know and hopefully save you playing 40 levels!”
You could probably use a Memory card also. Just don’t use your HDD to save to. Thanks Dub!

2:18PM — (3) for (45gs) in EA sports MMA. Got a hot tip for Megamind coming up.

2:10PM — Too much hugging in UFC and MMA. Just saying.

1:52PM —

4:34AM — Miss Mittens is taking the reins while I sleep. I wonder if she can steer this thing.
3:45AM — Almost done with this review. I am going to have to do shorter reviews in the future. I will never be able to review everything.
3:03AM — (3) for (130gs) in Megamind. Looks like it glitched out on me because the level will not end. 🙁

2:35AM — (5) for (180gs) In Megamind.

2:06AM — Going to play a tiny bit of Megamind just to check it out.

 1:57AM — Fixing up this review, blah. Tired. Why is KG messing with my boy, Charlie V? KG is a punk.

1:42AM — Lakers 5-0. They are good this year. Like really, really good.
12:40AM — Kinect sports has a variety of games to keep you and your friends entertained. Soccer will give you a work out, bowling will allow you to relax, and boxing will allow you to take out your aggression.

12:38AM — The Kinect games I have tried are Adventures, Joy Ride, Kinect sports, and The Biggest Loser. Kinect Sports is my favorite of the four.

12:29AM– Trying to figure out how to type while I sleep here in a bit. Back to the Lakers game, then I will finish off that Biggest Loser review. Big long, super fun, day planned.

12:17AM — Caddius said… “The fear is spending $150 on a useless piece of equipment, again.”    I know what you mean, man. Maybe I like it more because it was free, who knows. But I went in thinking it would be rubbish and laggy. It probably won’t work well at all with shooters or anything action packed. But the developers that bring in the great ideas will hit a home run. It’s a great piece of technology. I still kind of wonder how it all works.. Tracks your whole body, head to toe. Very impressive stuff.

12:12AM — Another cool Kinect feature is the voice recognition. It works really well whether you are on the dashboard or watching a movie. To activate recognition all you have to say is, “xbox” then give it a command. I find myself running around the living room yelling “xbox! Make me a sandwich!” Never works though. 🙁

12:11AM — Watching the Lakers right now and trying to finish up my review of The Biggest Loser. The demise of Kobe Bryant was greatly exaggerated.

 12:00AM — Yes, Kinect is good. Yes, it does work. I was able to beta test the thing for the last couple of months. The only big downfall is the space requirements. You will need a fairly large area of about 10x 10 to get the best results. I also believe that it will be huge, massive, and colossal. A lot of people want it to fail, I just don’t think that will happen. Microsoft is tapping an entirely new market. Not sure what so many people are scared of.
