Free Kinect game, Minecraft add-ons, Black Knight Sword

Those with children should definitely take an interest.... read more

I too will probably fork out for the Minecraft Skin Pack. The price is too small to be insulting.

I'm also considering buying Guardians of Middle Earth (in which case I may purchase some of the dlc for it) but am not too sure as the trial did not make much of an impression.

Lush? I think you're kidding. It smells like someone ate several tonnes of sherbet then threw up everywhere, it's horrible.

It seems that way doesn't it! Maybe they hope that by giving away the free Kinect Games we will buy the full price release Kinect games. Unfortunately they are generally really bad or at best predictable with no depth (maybe good party fun games) but generally cannot even compete with the quality of mediocre normal control based games. So no matter what they try and pass off as a free 'game', unless ANY game is worthy - regardless of control method - I will not buy it!

That being said I am always interested in FREE games (I can always delete them after getting any achievements if I can be bothered) but I have hunted for 'Kinect Party' but can't see it to get it!

Just searched on xbox.com for "Kinect Party" and "Double Fine Kinect Party" - no sign of this free game?
