Filmmaker's Blog Outs Canoeing-Style Project Natal Game

Remember James Gunn? The filmmaker who called Microsoft "the most dreadful, non-talent friendly company I've ever worked for"? Apparently they patched up. Microsoft invited him to try Natal, and Gunn's spilled the beans on a game called "River Rush."

On his personal blog, Gunn describes River Rush as two player kayaking type game where both participants steer the boat by stepping right or left. (that's him pictured playing it with a friend)

"As you rush down right rapids, you have to jump up and slap floating stars in the air – the whole raft jumps up every time you do," he says. Sounds like high potential for midair collisions.

Gunn wants it known that he's the first one to teabag a fellow player's avatar in Natal. Well, sort of. His friend's avatar "was a girl during River Rush, probably because Dave feels like a little princess inside, and I suddenly realized how awesome it would be for my avatar to molest Dave's.

As my avatar rubbed its crotch against Dave's avatar's ass the Microsoft folks started laughing and said that was the first time they had seen anyone do that. I was extremely proud of myself. I'm sure millions of little assholes will follow in the wake of my avatar-raping, but I want it to be noted in my Wikipedia page that I was the very first.

Gunn says he was told "there were boxing and football and other Natal games coming out, but I really, really can't wait to shoot someone on that fucking thing."
