I know, I know. Ever since Microsoft's supremely bizarre Kinect reveal event at this year's E3, you've been wanting to know more about Skittles in Kinectimals. We all make fun of it, but then little girl was just so gosh darned adorable. Is the game adorable? Yes. It even managed to melt the titanium-like heart of our own Stephen Johnson.
"Interacting with your pet is undeniably, unspeakably adorable. The animals really respond to your voice and actions, sitting down when you tell them to, reacting to their name, fetching toys when they want to play, purring when you scratch them behind the ears, and interacting with their owners in truly lifelike ways. It’s almost eerie how flawless and complete the game’s pet interactions are. The little guys are so lifelike; it’s like having a small animal trapped inside your LCD. My Kinectimal, a baby panther I named “Satan Rising,” quickly warmed my heart with purrs, jumps and obedience, but sadly, I could not impart upon him a taste for human flesh."
Need more? Yes you do. Before you invite the all-seeing eye of Kinect into your home, you need to read the rest of Steve's Kinectimals review.
