We reviewed Kinectimals last week and now here is our long awaited video Kinect Appetizer for the game. Watch as Will and Gyuri discuss a children’s game and all the things that make it so horribly wrong for that demographic. With that said though, we both came to the conclusion that this is the best core experience among the Kinect titles available right now.
Gyuri and Will dive right in to Konami’s evolution of the Naoki Maeda’s Dance franchise with the Kinect exclusive, Dance Masters (Dance Evolution in EU). Dance Masters feels like the next step for the franchise, incorporating staple DDR gameplay with a natural choreography. It contains a variety of cute J-Pop tracks, club hits, and even some hip hop. We discuss our lack of dancing ability, get into a few songs, and bring the experience of “having the ultimate dance club right in our living rooms.”
In this episode of The Appetizer, Will, Gyuri, and Craig return to form a brotherhood and assassinate some dudes in Ubisoft Montreal’s latest Assassins Creed adventure. We discuss the singleplayer portion of the game which is surprisingly very lengthy considering it had less than one year from development to release. Ezio Auditore must take back the Apple of Eden, face off with his new arch-nemesis Cesare Borgia, and all the while restoring the Assassins Brotherhood in Rome.
In this episode of The Appetizer, Will and Gyuri don their tinfoil hats for a conspiracy theory in Treyarch’s latest Call of Duty: Black Ops. We discuss the non-chronological singleplayer storyline filled with flashbacks, redacted statements, and plenty of covert operations. In particular, we showcase the first level of Black Ops tracing back to the historic Bay of Pigs event where the CIA is tasked with assassinating Fidel Castro.
Alright, alright, the review is still in the works bear with me here. -Will
In this edition of The Appetizer, MonsterVine’s only video game video feature, Gyuri and Will return to the mystical continent of Albion to fulfill our hero’s destiny and become king. Fable 3 tasks the player with leading a revolution by gathering allies and ultimately dethroning your tyrant king brother to rule Albion. Once king, you realize being in the seat of power is not all its cracked up to be. Anyway, we’ll let the video decide if the game is worth your time or not.
