It's "even more exhilarating" than the dodgeball-based Ricochet, where you must hit balls at targets. Natal every night will "definitely burn calories."
"First I played a game kicking and whacking balls into targets... I was really struck by the amount of physical exertion it took. It’s amazing exercise and, because of that, I think it’s going to be a much better device for people’s health in general," blogged Hollywood scribe James Gunn, reports .
"As hyperbolic as it may sound, I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if in a few years we see a decrease in childhood obesity simply because of the system."
It's amongst Gunn's first impression of Project Natal that he spills the beans of River Rush. "It’s a game where you stand side by side in a river raft, so it’s two people playing at once," he said. Stepping left and right steers the raft, and jumping collects stars.
"This game was even more exhilarating than the kicking one, and even more aerobically challenging. In fact, I’d say the ONLY drawback to the Natal some people may have is that you have to get up off your ass to play it."
"But, for me, a person who likes exercise and gaming, it's sort of a dream come true. An hour of playing Natal every night will definitely burn calories." He's real excited to get his hands on the final product especially if they team it up with a shooter.
"The Natal was an amazing piece of technology and I’ll be the first one in line to buy one when they come out during the holidays... I really, really can’t wait to shoot someone on that f***ing thing." On another note, Gunn wants some recognition...
"Dave’s avatar was a girl during River Rush, probably because Dave feels like a little princess inside, and I suddenly realized how awesome it would be for my avatar to molest Dave’s," he continued, referring to his gaming partner, Dave Yarvo, for the demo.
"As my avatar rubbed its crotch against Dave’s avatar’s ass the Microsoft folks started laughing and said that was the first time they had seen anyone do that."
"I was extremely proud of myself. I’m sure millions of little assholes will follow in the wake of my avatar-raping, but I want it to be noted in my Wikipedia page that I was the very first." You do the gamer community proud James Gunn, down another Mountain Dew!
