this is stupid on so many levels. I hope this **** gets canceled. Honestly, selling games that are really just developer exercises on how to program for a new platform is unethical. At least Microsoft was honest about this with the Kinect Labs freebie games. I'm not going to pay to be your beta tester.

- You are the new sorcerer's apprentice
- Kinect puts your silhouette on the screen
- "By reaching out towards the screen, you transform the objects you linger on"
- More than 25 songs
- Bohemian Rhapsody is one of them, has three different versions: original, orchestral, and 80's heavy metal ballad
- Apparently you can customize mixes and share them with others?

1. It's Harmonix, so expect loads of DLC and 53 game releases over the first 2 years of its existence, because that's how the music game industry works.
2. I'd rather see a Kinect Disney World Adventures, or at least a re-release of Disneyland Adventures with a California Adventure addition.

I like music games, and I "guess" it would be cool to control the music or whatever using Kinect (thinking of yourself as a conductor, I guess)... but can someone explain to me exactly how this works? I mean, what do you DO? I even watched an E3 demonstration because I was genuinely curious... and I got absolutely nothing out of it. I still walked away confused and scratching my head. I know there was that game that came out... I think it was last E3 and I can't remember the name... but it was a music game that came out for all platforms but was recommended for Xbox 360 w/ Kinect since you could control everything with your hands. It did look cool, the developer of the game went on stage and controlled everything with his hands... REZ.. that's what it was. REZ. Is this anything like REZ?
EDIT: I saw Paul Miller's video and article on this over on The Verge. Game is not even close to the marketing for it, IMO. No longer interested.

I like to play around with the Music Maker Jam app on my Surface, to me this game is going to be similar but much more interactive. It also looks like this will be a much richer experience than people initially expected.

Me personally, I'd prefer an experience more like Rez (that Kinect version)- I never got to experience that on the 360 but it looked great. But it would be excellent if a game was made that made you actually feel more in control than just moving your hands around to on-screen cues.
I also wish they would speed it up, make it really challenging, and make it more like FANTASIA when it was super, wicked fast and Mickey was going insane up on that hill, when things started turning intense and orange and fiery and out of control. This seems way too peaceful. I'm not going to knock anyone who likes it (heck! I loved Viva Pinata and I loved the Kinect obstacle course games) but it just doesn't seem like my style from what I have seen.

That's what they need. Wasn't there some DJ game a while back, during the music game craze? I think they even had hardware turntables. I'm not sure how much freedom was in there, but imagine at least being able to spin, mix, and scratch from a number of different tracks and samples... all using your hands and fingertips (controller also an option, of course).
And yes, with Fantasia, I would LOVE if I could make the music louder and more intense, and make it more vicious and wild if I got very vigorous with my hands. Not shaking them around like I'm getting stung by bees, but controlled, firm movements. Like a conductor. And you could swipe in icons form the sides of the screen that could represent different notes, or a different genre of music to mix and blend in, or something. Complete freedom. Like a mix studio, but in the style of Fantasia. And you could of course share your mixed tracks, and maybe you could even customize and artistically draw in things on the background - like fireworks and fire - attach that to your music. That I would like.

Several new updates on this game from GDC last week. Gaming journalists actually positive about Kinect 2.0 . The buzz keeps getting better and better on this title, hopefully we get a release date soon.
