Dragon's Lair On XBLA To Feature Kinect Controls

As anyone with a lick of sense knows, the Kinect has two functions: Partly, it dares to tear asunder gaming conventions, allowing you, creature of radiance and celestial light, to experience the immersion that only controller-free gaming can bring. Mainly, it dares to make you look like a t*t. Bounding about your (highly recommended) ample living room space like a stoned gazelle, the Kinect serves as an endless source of amusement for friends, family, and any other lovers of spectacle.

Yet one game has the potential to leave all others to shame: Dragon's Lair. Bitterly remembered as the that which monopolized the nation's quarters during the eighties, the game will find itself reborn on XBLA (no release date, as of yet) with motion controls in tow. For those averse to such bother, Joystiq notes that:

You can play Dragon's Lair normally, or you can respond to on-screen prompts with the correct motion. Examples shown in screens include jumping away from a crumbling floor or reaching up to grab a rope.

The Kinect: Training us to obey our Robot Overlords (you know it's going to happen) since 2010.

LMAO.

Alright, that elicited a rather hearty "lol" spree, and positively charms me on two levels... both of which are related to my swelling obsession for music.

First, the speaker reminds me of Genesis P. Orridge (of Psychic TV & Throbbing Gristle fame), father of industrial music, and self-proclaimed "one half of thee Pandrogyne."

Also, to raise high my black metal freak flag, i actually laughed out loud at the intro music, which i immediately recognized as "Empty" by Emperor.

Michael is so not how I imagine you to be but when you type words like radiance and celestial light I have Michael's voice ringing out in my head going "Hai nheeed some sort of shaerpe halien hobject too gaouououoge out..." and so on...


And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
