  1. Nice strawman, do you not understand the difference between something that is passive and something that requires action? It's pretty simple really. You could make lots of silly assumptions or you could read the thread and see that my main issue is that my kids have difficulty with it. Even so, if people find it annoying they find it annoying; it's not your call on what people have issues with and it doesn't make them a fanboy. If anything the over-sensitive people always come across as the fanboys. I don't think the Wii would have been a success if every single game required calibration.
  2. Alternatively, Sony is not your mom. Why can't some people just accept that the calibration is an issue for others (you even mention that the WiiMotion+ calibration is an issue for you, something I also agree with!) without playing the fanboy card? A lot of you really have problems seeing fanboys everywhere you look; sort it out.
  3. I've realised I'm a massive classist when it comes to rapping. Jay-Z rapping about a hard-knock life and growing up in a life of crime I can take but "...Sleeping on futons and cots..."
  4. Can't see Mary being in the final myself. It's looking like Cher and Matt with One Direction finishing in 3rd. Probably Cher to win but it's going to be interesting what they do for the winner's song as they normally pick it for who they know is going to win. Why do boy bands on these shows always pick such awful names while the girls pick awesome names? One True Voice and One Direction. WTF?
  5. The judges pick the final contestants and there is no way that they will not put Cher in the final.
  6. I can't imagine a more un-casual-like thing to say. My parents can barely tell the difference in graphics never mind the minor difference between the Wii and Move.
  7. So, 0 wildcards in the bottom 3, says a lot. I wish the pop idol format would come back over here.
  8. She really should have just been in the over-25s. Even better they should just put through the best acts.
  9. 5 years ago, Wagner would have been funny, but unfortunately the curtain's been pulled back a bit too far lately and it is hard to keep the suspension of disbelief.
  10. Itv HD was massively out of sync for me and I've had to change to itv sd because it looked like everyone was miming. Got a feeling cheryl's wildcard is going to be amazing. Can't remember her at all from the auditions.
  11. I haven't played either but I have played Just Dance 1 and didn't really like it. On the other hand I'm really looking forward to Dance Central. However I'm not prepared to call someone who has played both and prefers Just Dance 2 an anti-Xbox fanboy because Just Dance 2 might be more enjoyable for that person. They are different games after all not solely defined by their input methods.
  12. I think the majority of people thought she was amazing, and that's why she was the bookies' favourite (obviously they don't just pull the odds out of thin air, they reflect what people thought of the performances at this point). Personally, I thought she was one of the best contestants that's been on the show since Leona, with a similar way of putting emotion into a song. I do have a soft spot for alternative versions of songs though.

    This nails it on the head. The Britney episode has to be the worst ever episode for this with the songs having nothing to do with the story at all. Also, I had to do a double-take to check it wasn't Britney Spears signing when the first music video came on because it was such a good copy.
  14. I have to say being a massive DDR fan at the time, but not really enjoying Just Dance personally I'm definitely looking forward to Dance Central and was the one reason I pre-ordered a Kinect (later cancelled because of the feedback in this thread). How does the freestyle mode work? I'd always assumed it was like freestyle in Singstar that has no effect on the actual game.
  15. So they're exactly the same game only with a different control method?
  16. Wow, looking at those pictures Cher really is like some horrible Bo Selecta style parody of Cheryl Cole.
  17. Yes it is. She's still in the top 5 favourites to win.
  18. It is a big thing because you have to do it every single time you play any game. It's completely different to the Wii calibration. Not sure if it is just in the software that I've used but I'm finding the pointing aspect of Move a bit weird? I noticed it the most in Start the party. It felt like rather than pointing I had to move the controller over the box using the camera. I was assuming it would use a combination of the camera and the gyroscope to be able to function as a pointer.
  19. .Thought the 16 year old lads were awful in the audition, but Twen and Diva Fever had about as much talent as John & Edward but without their personalities. Would have been happy with either Hustle or the nerdy band as I thought those were really good. Gamu not getting through though is just ridiculous and definitely points to something a bit dodgy with this 'big twist'.
  20. Microsoft devs don't make games, it's why the Xbox is so successful.
  21. Glad I stuck by my decision not to watch any new US shows again until they are established. TV needs to find a new model quick.
  22. Isn't that impossible as only 3 can go through from that category?
  23. They're at the top-end of 3 and 6 years old. The first problem wasn't really related to Move, it was that we had to update the system to a new firmware (3.5) that took around 2 hours to download and install. Again the second problem wasn't really Move's fault just the fault of the PS3 in general. We couldn't play the demos without installing them to the HDD so we couldn't easily find the games we liked (they take ages to install and I couldn't see an option to install them all). They picked Sports champion as the first game, so we waited for it to install and when that was finally done we went to the Disc throwing game. The first problem with Move shows it's face here, the need for constant calibration. My 3 year old couldn't get it calibrated at all, I think we worked out later on after my eldest had a go that the problem was other people visible in the camera at the edges. Once they managed to get it calibrated they couldn't throw the frisbee very well. They tried the table tennis game but didn't like it as much as Wii Sports. Watching them, the problem was that they weren't playing as if they were holding an actual tennis bat, because they can't don't know how to play table tennis. They were swinging the remote to hit the ball, without taking into account the position of the remote in 3 dimensions. I imagine with more practice they'd pick it up but it just didn't seem to appeal to them. After that they tried Tiger Woods golf. They found it really hard to swing and hit the ball and just not as enjoyable as Wii Sports Golf. Again, I guess the underlying issue for them is the same as for the previous games. It's not all doom and gloom though. They're playing Start the Party now and enjoying that a lot more. It's a shame that the camera is such poor quality though. Is it the same resolution as the old Eye Toy camera? I think in terms of ease of use, it actually suffers from a lot of the problems that Wii Motion Plus has in that it actually makes the games less accessible. I haven't had managed to have a go yet but hopefully these issues won't affect me as much.
  24. I picked this up for yesterday for my kids after the praise it's received on here. Unfortunately, first impressions are not favourable at all. All in all it's pretty unusable for my kids.
