Lesbian Gamers Podcast – Episode 1 Xbox Kinect and game reviews

Welcome to the first Lesbian Gamers Podcast episode. In this episode the grrls talk about Microsoft’s new motion controller, the Xbox Kinect.

As well as thoughts on the hardware itself there’s a few games reviewed, including “Kinect Adventures”, “Kinect Sports”, “Motion sports: Play For Real”, “Your Shape: Fitness Evolved” and of course dancing title “Dance Central”. There’s also something about touching buttons suggestively being way better than pressing too hard, now where else are you going to get that on a video game podcast.

    The podcast was fun to listen to. I am glad that the Kinect actually turned out well, and hopefully it will set a precedent for good motion control.

    I am most interested to see if any games come out that are not casual and are fully motion control based. stuff like shooting or sword fighting games.

    Anyways, maybe next episode you can talk about holiday game gifts or something like that : D

    I think the coolest feature of the device is probably the voice controls, but it sucks that its not enabled in Australia. Good voice control would let you do lots of fun little stuff in every game.

    Love the podcast ladies, keep up the good work. I felt like I was killing myself on the dance central and I would get like 50% of gadget girls score. My other half didn’t stop laughing the whole night, dancing whilst fun is not possibly my forte.
    cheers Tara

    Yay podcast!

    I really like the sound of the Your Shape Fitness game even though it lacks Jillian Michaels. I’m curious as to whether or not it enables you to keep track of the calories burned during a workout? Most fitness games can’t do that accurately but with Kinect being able to scan your body and interpret your height and weight .. in theory it should be able to roughly calculate the number of calories you are burning, which would be a HUGE advantage. This is something someone needs to capitalize on to make the difference between a fitness “game” and a real workout tool.

    (Side note.. and I’m pretty sure I’ve said this before but you guys really do have the best laughs. It’s so much fun to listen to lol)

    Glad your liking Kinect. I had a go of the adventures game at a family party and it was pretty fun. It really is odd to watch the avatar follow what your arms and legs are doing compared to wii just following where the remote moves. I still can’t justify £130 for one but maybe when some better games come out. I think the tech impresses me more than the games at the moment. I really like the idea of face and voice recognition (I hope my Welsh accent doesn’t confuse it). A dancing game would be hell for me and I’m not a fan of the diet games either (though the wii is nifty to use as a weighing scales). I heard they have some horror games planned which would be cool though having a well lit room might spoil it. Another Kinect issue for me would be space, not sure my living room is big enough.

    I know someday I’ll give in and buy the Kinect, but that also requires me to move my living room around. I am currently enjoying my “entertainment cave” and loathe to move things around.

    I love all things bowling, so that’s what I would try first.. .and I can’t play table tennis in real life, so I am sure I would SUCK in gaming-life.

    And who doesn’t like Jillian Michaels? She can yell at me to move faster ANYTIME, and I will just say “yes ma’am”

    I will wait until there are some full titles out there for me.

    And i’m jealous about the new xbox. Mine sounds like it’s going to eat someone every time I start it up.
