How To Hack The Xbox360 Kinect.

Microsoft has recently said that the company is open to people hacking the Xbox360 Kinect. In fact Microsoft is encouraging people to try and experiment with their software.Microsoft will be releasing a software development kit very soon, this at the time will be for personal only, but i'm sure we will soon have the secrets to the Kinect technology, and if some how they aren't leaked then Microsoft says that they will most likely release a commercial version in due course.
Microsoft are doing this because they want people to take the Kinect to new levels, with currently the Kinect being hacked for PC and the Kinect being used for surgery. So the future seems good for the Kinect. If you haven't already seen have a look at the future releases for Xbox360 Kinect.

Travian Highest Climbers.

All in a weeks worth.
So this week I have joined the popular game of Travian, I'm on server 3 if anybody is interested in joining me.
This picture shows my progress for a weeks worth including my highest climbers medal :)
Very proud of that. Anybody else play Travian feel free to get in touch. Anybody who doesn't play should join, yes it seems a bit sad at first but once you start playing it, it becomes strangely addictive and satisfying to play.

R.I.P Guitar Hero

The very popular game of Guitar Hero has been axed by Activision simply because "it's not a category that people are interested in right now, and so i think we need to focus our efforts on the things that get the consumers excited." said Bobby Kotick (one of the main people behind Guitar Hero at Activision.)
This is basically saying that they will not be bringing out a new guitar hero, but this is not forever, yes that right guitar hero might come back in the future, but only if Activision sees a gap in the market for it or if their consumers demand it. But I don't think we will be seeing a new guitar hero games for at least 4 years.
It just seems that Guitar Hero is to expensive to make and that is isn't selling well enough for them to make enough profit to go to all the effort of making any new games. Also there have been lots of complaints about the games being unreliable as the guitars, and other equipment, often break and have to be sent off to be fixed.
So looks like it's goodbye Guitar Hero... For now.

How To Get A Perfect Start To FIFA11 Ultimate Team.

This is a short guide on how to get a good start to Fifa11 Ultimate team.
Fifa11 Ultimate team is played by over a million people all over the world. And its popularity isn't declining as new people are starting everyday. This is a short post on how to get the best start you possible can to Ultimate Team. You don't need to be brilliant at Fifa11 to do this technique but you need to be above average if you want to carry on further with ultimate team.
First of all you will be given 23 bronze players. Now you can change your team to the best starting line up but I tend to just leave it as its given to me. Now find the trophy that is semi-pro difficulty, this is the hardest trophy you can play at the time.
Play this trophy. When you complete it (there are only 4 games) you should have 2500 coins, to make sure you get maximum points in a game try and win every game 5-0 as this will give you maximum coins for the game, as you can't get extra points for any goal after your fifth goal. Also keeping a clean sheet means you wont lose 50 coins that game.
Once you have done this trophy you might want to put a couple of gold strikers (try not to spend more than 500 on each, but if you see any good deals take them whilst you can) You don't need to buy and gold player for this guide to work, but I get very frustrated with the poor quality of the bronze starting strikers so i tend to.
The reason for this is that the more gold players you have the better your rating will be, isn't that a good thing? No because this means your team difference will be highly in there favor and you will get less money for games in the amateur trophy.
Now play the trophy again but after the second game of this trophy (the sixth game in total) change your whole starting team to the other bronze players that have not played a game yet, those on your bench and those in the reserve pile, now everybody on your starting team should have 7 contracts each, your bench will have 1 contract each (you don't lose contracts if your on the bench as long as they don't play at all) This means you can play another 6 games, so finish this trophy then do the same trophy again.
Now this can be a bit boring and repetitive but as long as you haven't spent anything you will now have 75000 coins, which can buy you a full gold teams with ratings of around 80 then your free to carry on at will and do as you want. I would recommend not buying a pack with coins but instead trading them with other players, i would recommend discarding your bronze players as they are very hard to sell for good money. And if you are very enthusiastic i would say spend some Microsoft points on buying the pack of the week, the most expensive one, but obviously the best one!
So that is my quick guide to a good start on Fifa11 Ultimae team. Any questions?

Xbox360 Kinect Rumored Games Including Assassins Creed And Halo

Assassins Creed
Splinter Cell
Prince Of Persia
Ghost Recon
These are 3 of the most popular games by Microsoft and it is rumored that these could all be coming out for Kinect!
According to "WHOis," a domain registration site, Microsoft registered a domain called some time last year. This could easily be proof that there is going to be Halo on the Kinect, I think it would be most likely to be a Halo Wars sequel because I'm unsure how they would do anything else, but nothing has been officially announced just yet.

Next is Assassins Creed and Splinter Cell, and the other games on my list, all of these are made by Ubisoft. And just last month the company were "considering Kinect adaptations for all there major platforms." It was also quoted that "we can propose Kinect versions of all the brands that we have got, but at the end of the day it's down to the production team. We can't promise anything yet. But we will have something for everything, we can assure that!" So to me it seems quite likely that the Kinect could be getting a number of these games and possibly many more, news will be released by Microsoft in the upcoming months. I sure hope that Kinect doesn't kill these games off thought for that would be terrible.
