Really liking the X1 so far. Played a match of Killer Instinct against a stranger (lost, if you're wondering), then did a bit of the tutorial "DOJO" section. Then tried some of the Kinect stuff. Voice commands are still as fun as they ever were. I have no interest in Kinect as a gaming device, but barking orders at my Xbox just never gets old. Getting the hang of saying what you need to, when you need to, is pretty intuitive. But I did stumble a time or two by speaking too fast and running words together. I know better, and typically have pretty decent elocution. But when I get excited with a new toy, that can smoosh all together.
All in all, I'm pretty pleased with the system.
Also, Dead Rising is awesome. Though, I'm not really the person you want to listen to on Dead Rising. It's impossible for me to be objective on that series. I just have too much fun with it's settings, silly story, improvised weapons, etc. But I had this great "Next Gen" moment. Standing atop a burning bus, looking out at the sea of undead as they grasped for my pants cuff, trying desperately to get ahold of my delicious brain meats. This one is a great show piece. Say what you want about the framerate and FPS. It's certainly not going to win any graphic awards. But the amount of potential enemies, all within sight and moving, squirming, undulating... it was a bit breathtaking.
You're talking about Dead Rising 3, right? I heard that if you complete the game on Nightmare mode, you'll be able to unlock a Mega Man X suit for the main character to use. I know, because I saw footage of the game in action with that suit equipped over on TrueAchievements.com. That would be like the only reason to play that game. LMFAO.
