Straight from the PAX East 2012 expo floor comes a an excellent Arcade Kinect game from the fine folks at Iron Galaxy. The Wreckateer puts you at the controls of a ballista as you wreck havok in goblin infested castles. Shots fired from the ballista each have their own powers and abilities — and you control all of the action using the Kinect for Xbox 360 Sensor. The verdict? It’s a hell of a lot of fun!
Hands-on impressions of two of the latest Kinect-enabled demos. It’s time… to face… the hole.
The highly addictive produce-karate mashup, Fruit Ninja Kinect, is Xbox’s latest offering in the 2011 Summer of Arcade series. Although the game debuted on iOS, and has recently come to the Android market, the Xbox version adds the wrinkle of Kinect functionality — turning this quick finger swiping game into a full body hack and slash.

Okay, maybe I didn’t actually get trench-foot (which is nothing to joke about), but I did have such an amazing time playing Trenched that I didn’t move away from the television for a few days.
