Yesterday we covered half of the Kinect releases from E3 and today's focus has some of the better showcased lineup. We covered Two competing Dance titles yesterday and today will showcase some familiar franchises and a wrestling legend. Microsoft this year really focused on Kinect titles but did these titles look good?
Hulk Hogan’s Main Event
If you have never taken a lunch tray or folding chair to another person, then you have not lived. As long as this game tightens up the controls beyond what was shown in the demo, then I’ll be in my spandex with the feather boa elbow dropping from off my couch in no time flat. With the promise of over 30 moves and multiple weapons, this could be a fantastic example of what can be done on the Kinect. Not to mention two-player co-op support. Intercontinental Tag Team Champions here we come!
Fable: The Journey
So… yeah… This looks pretty bad. An on-rails Fable game. Not exactly my first choice, second choice, or even my third choice. Give me a full on Kinect-controlled Fable game, not.... this.

I don't like the idea of being entertained while standing up."
Via Take-Two's 2K Play division: "designed to simulate the 'entertainment, rivalry, fitness, precise moves, jumps and impressive routines' of the sport of cheer leading". So there you have it. Kinect controlled choreographed cheer routines. Bring It On! I can't wait to get competitive in my sign holding to pump up the crowd.
