Kinect Stress

I swear my kids are going to seriously harm each other one day. They will beat the other to a pulp all because of a video game. The Kinect for the XBOX 360 will be charged as an accessory. I really can’t believe how much one little device causes so much hysteria in my house.

It wasn’t too long ago that I took advantage of a really great Toys R Us coupon code that helped me score some of the kiddos favorite characters in some new and exciting ways to play. Peyton could take a stroll in a story book with Elmo and Cookie Monster, Rylan could play with his very own gryphon in Fantastic Pets, and Taylor can dance the night away with titles like Victorious and Dance Central 2.

They do not get the physics of the games though. When it says stay still and that it is doing face recognition then that means stay still. They hit and fight each other to where the poor Kinect thinks that they are one ball of meat sack wriggling in front of it.

I have already expressed my dislike of the Michael Jackson games and some of these dance games run fairly close to the same embarrassment factor. At least there aren’t as many pelvic thrusts in the Victorious game. Wait….I’m right…I think…..lemme go check real quick. Nope no thrusts are being thrown around here.

      LOL. Well put. I guess I should be thankful that I don’t have an XBOX 360… then again my son can’t even crawl yet, so by the time he can walk and run and dance… who knows what will be out on the market at Toys R Us? :P

      Have a separate place for your kids and also provide them a time were they would be together but definitely not a good idea to let them share a common thing. It’s really not a good sign that they’ll hurt one another just because of that non sense thing.
