Kinect-ing again!

Wednesday, May 04, 2011

My breathing is finally good enough to use my Kinect again, and I bought the new MIchael Jackson Experience game last night to celebrate.
Last night I danced/sang to "Thriller", and it was most definitely an experience, lol. Michael Jackson had his glove....I had my ventolin in one hand as a surrogate glove. I probably would have breathed better if I could have stopped laughing, but it was so funny, and so much fun , that I couldn't. I could only do that one song last night, but today I managed 3 songs (Thriller, Bad, Beat It). I had to use my ventolin too often to keep going after that...ventolin is hard on the heart and it feels like getting a shot of adrenaline...hard on the system...so I stopped. But I may try to do more songs later.

Michael Jackson, The Experience, for Kinect, is, in my opinion, a blast.
I don't like the small flashcards showing the various dance moves...I couldn't actually see them. I had to follow the back up dancers. I didn't have my new glasses, though (they're still being made), and was wearing my old ones, which aren't strong enough for me. Despite that, it was a lot of fun...maybe because the music is so upbeat and fun. Plus, I was able to recognize it. Dance Central is amazing, but I only recognize one song on it...and I'm too old to like any hip hop sort of songs, lol.

It was a lot of fun to see a ghostly image of myself on the screen, with the background singers...fitting, too, since thriller puts the singers in a graveyard.
The graphics are very cool...anyone who remembers MJ's videos will recognize the settings.

I'm glad I got the game, and I'm looking forward to playing it again.
