Kinect's Rock Tour Event!

By dropK1CK ninJA, 8 years ago
There are those on the fence with the Kinect. There are those that could care less about it and are going to post comments like "pass", "lame", and "Codster bad". We get the point. You're too hype, cool, and jive to play with the Kinect. I am not addressing you. I am addressing all of those gamers out there who enjoy play video games for fun. You know, where you laugh at your goofy self trying to dance to "Beat It", kick your partner making a pose in that awesome mine-cart-game-I-don't-know-the-name-to, or playing hide and seek with your mother f'ing PET TIGER. I don't care how cheesy or goofy the Kinect makes you feel, I want to have some fun.

Anyways, for those that are interesting in purchasing the Kinect and want to experience, Microsoft is taking the Kinect on a rock 'n roll type of tour. Sorry folks, all the tour dates are in America. United States. Major Nelson has the breakdown between coasts:
