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.

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.”
