Being a work-from-home Dad, I find that the ‘me’ time is pretty much non-existent at times. In fact, I’m making it a point to try alloting some on a schedule in the near future, something that started over the weekend when I fired up the XBOX 360 for the first time in about six months or so. I was so out of the gaming loop that it took me nearly an hour just to update all of my stuff on there. That said, I’m thinking about getting a Kinect. I wasn’t fond of the controllerless idea initially, but now it’s grown on me. The latest Kinect only game announced? DANCE CENTRAL 3, which families can start jamming with this Fall. Check out the announcement straight from E3…
