If you haven’t gotten Kinectimals yet — go get it because you now have even more reasons to. It has Bears! Check out my review of the original Kinectimals. Kinectimals is back! Nearly a year since the original release as a launch title for Kinect, the folks at Microsoft Game Studios and Frontier have released [...]
In my opinion, the range of motion-enabled Kinect titles fall into five distinct categories: Fitness — these are great and there are several to choose from between initial releases and upcoming titles. Most do body sensing, provide a trainer silhouette to take you through rigorous training programs, etc. Dance — not really my speed, but [...]
FINALLY !! Old fashioned family games — on Xbox!! The classics — Yahtzee, Scrabble, Connect Four, Sorry, Battleship, and others… This month, on Xbox Live Marketplace Arcade, Hasbro released a really cool shell, where you will find yourself in a game room.Â On the game wall, you’ll find these and other classic Hasbro games, first [...]
In my opinion, Crash is one of the less appreciated kid-gaming characters out there.Â Sure, we’ve all heard of Sonic and Mario, but Crash the Bandicoot?Â Â Why not ?!

Most of you know that aside from my vocational passion around Data Protection and Storage Solutions for Windows servers … my vice is video gaming, particularly with my family. And in that vein, the kind folks at xbox.com have been letting me co-write about family games as XBOX DAD.. If you own an Xbox 360, [...]
This weekend was Fathersâ€™ Day in the US â€“ and I have three loving children (and a wife) who know that their daddy is an avid gamer.Â So, I thought I would share what I got for Fathersâ€™ Day as an XboxDad.Â I did get some of the standard Fathersâ€™ Day fare â€“ clothes, including [...]
Â As you may have seen in some of my other gaming posts, I love it when my favorite things overlap – e.g. Star Wars and Video Games. In this month’s Xbox Dad article, my Windows Home Server hooked up with my Xbox360 and effect was beautiful (literally), as my family photos and video, along [...]
