Slaughtering the Helgast with Move

Having downloaded and installed the Killzone 3 beta I was happy to see the familiar Move screen load up. With my PS Eye set to its little blue dot I began to strap up with my navigator and Move. The learning curve began immediately.

Dual analogs may seem awkward to somebody who doesn’t play First Person Shooters, the way you move with Move has that same first time awkwardness. Rather then having the whole screen move you are introduced to the Move’s constant gun movement. The gun bobbing all around precise to where your pointing is a site to see. I immediately adjusted the sensitivity to 60% so when my aim hit the side of the screen I would turn much faster then the default setting. By default the left to right is like barely pushing right on the Dual shocks right analog, much to slow for my liking.

Official Review: Kung-Fu Live | Motion Gaming

I’ve been anxiously awaiting for Kung-Fu Live to finally hit the PlayStation Store. After the hectic holidays and my PS3 issue .. I finally got my hands on this unique PlayStation Eye motion game.

The PlayStation Eye has been around since October 2007 and it took this long to come out with a killer PlayStation Eye motion game. It was worth the wait too!

It’s also a great workout believe it or not. I was sore for a couple days after. Sadly I didn’t gain any new Kung Fu powers that I could use in the real world …. yet. Mwhahahaha.

The guys over at Virtual Air Guitar Company use FreeMotion Technology to track your movements, remove the background and place you right inside the game. It’s quite an experience to see yourself moving inside of a game world. It’s fun to watch your friends and family try it for the first time. They all picked it up really quickly too.
