One of Microsoft's big holiday-season Kinect games, Fable: The Journey, came out today. As our reviewer notes, it's not very good, because Microsoft's popular Kinect sensor often fails to properly detect the movement of the player trying to control the game.
Did you ever go to school with a kid that was way too into horses? Like, waaaaaay too into horses? I'm talking about the kind of kid who has horse posters on the wall, a horse lunchbox and a horse backpack. Because Fable: The Journey feels like a game made by and for that kid.

Forget the hero of Albion. Theresa—a prophetic seer who has appeared in all the previous Fable games—is not only hundreds of years old, but she likes to orchestrate things from the shadows. A character who commands true intrigue. She has visions of the future, but her motivations are always unclear. So she's a…
