PlayStation Move tracks player movement with pinpoint accuracy, Xbox Kinect is a striking display of camera trickery and motion sensing technology. The hype machine has been put into overdrive as gamers prepare for a new wave of motion controlled games and gadgets spurred on by immense publicity and awe-inspiring tech demos.

This is called the Dragon Amulet upgrade which unlocks exclusive areas and powerful items. Dragon Fable is constantly updated and is totally worth your time especially since you won't spend anytime downloading it!
Canaan Online is a flash based MMORPG that is just too cute to be true. The game reeks of cuteness from the get-go. I think it's safe to assume a lot of hardcore online gamers would be immediately turned off with the cuteness level.
I know I have had my calendar marked for a while. Perhaps some of you have as well. Today, October 12th, is one of two big dates this month for NetDevils Lego Universe.
