It might help, though she was on me to get that $300 back from the plumber who tried to rip us off for 7 grand. I fully expect her to hit the ceiling and given that I'm currently running on 2 hours of sleep I don't have a lot of fight in me. In fact, I just got out of church (I play in the band and she stayed home alone with the kids, and she had already lost her patience at that point) and opted to take a power nap because she was self-justified to inform me that she was going shopping by herself once I got home.

Anyway, I was hoping Justin would take to the Kinect. He has the desire to try the wii but he doesn't have the coordination to work the controller. As for my wife, I was wondering if her friends would be into coming over for game night. We usually do board games but they were into another friends' PS3 during a recent Xmas party. That might be yet another angle...

Let him try. My 2yo has no problem with the wii or xbox controllers. Kinect she is so-so with. Not great. She is small and it seems to not work as well for her. She is good too with the controllers. Keeps up with her brothers. Give him a try on it. It will come.

I think Kinect has helped Will. He has this "disconnect" between what he thinks his body is doing and what it's actually doing, if that makes sense. Kinect gives him a visual feedback that helps him, I think.

Dance Central is a GREAT party game, people really like it.

OK, smart asses. I broke it out and hooked it up. I played a little Mass Effect 1 and couldn't hit the side of a barn. I don't think I'm ready for LIVE yet!

Haha! Nice! Just lower the difficult. ME can be a it tough, since it's a fairly hardcore RPG you get better at shooting as you level up those gun skills. I'd imagine it's even tougher not being used to a pad.

What's your gamer tag?
