  1. Kinect Surprises


    I was showing Peggle 2 to a friend today & she accidentally figured out that you could play the game without a controller. This may be common knowledge, but after playing for weeks this was something that I wasn't aware of. My reaction when I saw this?



    MIND BLOWN!!!



    Have any new features of the Kinect surprised or caught you off guard?

    :)

    Have Microsoft made a case for Kinect 2.0?

    Well this caught me by surprise, I was not expecting a Kinect thread.

    Kinect Surprises

    This May be minor to some people, but I was amazed when I could just say "Xbox pause game" in DR3 to pause the game. I love using kinect to pause the game and even navigate in game menus! I have heard Peggle is really challenging with the kinect!

    Its pretty cool to navigate with the Kinect. I just wish you can use the Kinect to search on Netflix.

  10. I love the volume up & down options for when you can't find the remote.

  11. You can use your voice to search Netflix, it has to be through Bing though, which searches Netflix

    [/quote]I just went through the gesture tutorial for the 1st time myself last night. It's cool in theory, but not so much in practice. For now, I think I'll stick with the voice commands.

    use open palm then close fist and move your hand to maneuver direction of peggle and then just say shoot ball for it to shoot the peggle. You can also use voice and hand gestures with Netflix.. works very smoothly
