Whether you think it looks awesome or awesomely bad, we still want to play Kinect Star Wars – if only to stomp around as a Rancor so we can crush Jake Lloyd and Jar Jar in Mos Eisley.

Kinect Star Wars: Duel

Kinect Star Wars: Duel

It can’t be good that this teaser tells us nothing of what to expect from the game, but it still had us laughing at its wannabe Obi-Wan dude. We really just want that limited-edition Xbox 360 anyhow.

Kinect Effect

A commercial for Sega’s Kinect survival horror game Rise of Nightmares made by video game comedy duo Mega64. Wait, so does this mean the game isn’t available in our dimension? Also: SWAG.

Dumbest Use of Kinect

Dumbest Use of Kinect

The Kinect is filled with potential. It’s been used to control other gadgets and even help the disabled. And then there’s this profoundly depressing excuse for a video game. Hilarious, but still depressing.

Rise of Nightmares

Rise of Nightmares

We like where SEGA is going with Rise of Nightmares, a creepy zombie melee game that takes full advantage of the Xbox 360 Kinect. Think House of the Dead with gesture control.

Crytek Ryse (E3 Teaser)

The E3 teaser doesn’t show too much, but if the concept video is any indication, we’ll be getting a good workout beating down Romans in Crytek’s upcoming Kinect fighter, Ryse.

Kinect Self-Awareness Hack

Now that you’ve got that fancy new Kinect hooked up to your Xbox 360, it’s time to put down those silly “casual games,” and start beating the crap outta your pals, with the first controller-free fighter.

Project Draco

Project Draco

Created by Yukio Futatsugi, the guy behind the classic SEGA Panzer Dragoon, this game also features flying dragons, but it plays with the Xbox 360 Kinect. It also does not remind us of Avatar.
