FFD – What apocalypse game were you looking forward to playing this year?

There’s a strange sensation in the air. A feeling of impending DOOOOM, that lingers in the atmosphere. Australia has gone quiet, and reports are coming in that there are bundles of empty clothing everywhere in Durban. Nah, I’m just screwing with you all. Much like an ANC promise before the elections, the 2012 Apocalypse that so many Kool Aid drinkers spoke about, has failed to materialise. Something that certain games share a common trait with.

Kinect Hacked to Control a Mech

I stopped posting videos of the multitude of Kinect hacks purely because they’ve become so numerous; the site would be nothing but videos of people doing things they shouldn’t with Microsoft’s motion-sensing doohickey.

But this? this is too damned cool to not post. Kinect has now been put to use to control small humanoid robots, of the Gundam ilk. Increase the scale, add lasers and rockets and it’s easy to see how Kinect, in the hands of a mad man, could be responsible for the obliteration of mankind.

On a completely unrelated note...anybody…err…know where I could get an army of giant robots? No reason.
