Welcome to a new feature here at Xbox Resource, with a new year now in full swing I decided to write daily blogs about my thoughts supporting the games industry and what I'm currently up to. These however are not you're typical boring blogs, these come direct from a staff member or members if you will of the Xbox Resource team. They help to promote thought and in this first blog you will notice that it isn't just about the big dogs in the gaming world. In time I hope that other staff members will get behind this idea and also help contribute to what will be a new daily feature. We have a lot to talk about and share, and we would love to share those thoughts with yourself. So without further a do let me introduce the very first daily blog here at Xbox Resource entitles New Year, New You! With New Year happening gradually all over the world as we speak I got thinking already about the year ahead and what is in store for gaming as a whole. Well first off Kinect seems to be picking up a stride now, more games release and on quite regular schedules, developers are taking an interest in the platform and it is about time also. From the first time I played on a Kinect I believed the product could work and that the technology was great. Microsoft can only keep on improving the device through either system updates or better builds of the product. The games themselves though are also gradually getting better, sure you still have your bad eggs where money was obviously a major constraint for the developers, but the ideas that are starting to come through are pretty unique and bring a whole new interesting light to play the Xbox on. Recently I got lucky enough to get my hands on one of the very few copies of Majesco's Motion Explosion here in the UK. The game isn't avalible in the high street or any etailers apart from Zavvi who obviously have to import the game. Sure enough though Motion Explosion is a game that comes with it's flaws and from the offset you can tell that developers had many issues most of which probably due to money. The overall product though works..well it works for arguments sake, the games are unique and some even offer a different perspective on games that we currently already play with on other Kinect titles. Depth perception for instance is put to great use within the game even if it is hard to work out how far forward or back you need to be in some of the games. Enough about that though, I feel like I have rambled on about something I didnt intend to for long enough, the title of this blog is supposed to mean something and for me it all ties down to that 200k gamerscore and inevitable goal that I will probably reach soon enough. Whilst many gamers will be scrambling around the stores looking for the best deals on the high street, I decided to take a different approach and try out some of the lesser known products such as Twister Mania and Nickelodeon Dance. The list is bigger then that and sure it probably contains some easy points along the way but at the end of the day, for me this year it's all about giving the little guys a chance. AAA Companies are very rarely taking risks now and often we see endless sequels to best loved games on the market. This then pushes the little guys out of the picture because, hell who wants to play things like Let's Cheer unless it's for the points. I take my role over at Xbox Resource very seriously, over the course of four months I have made some very high profile friends who like to read all about my work when it comes to hands on game time or reviews of titles. I hope this carries on into 2012, with a possible attendance at E3 next year the future looks bright. So this brings me to you guys, how are you going to change yourself for 2012?
