RABBIDS ALIVE & KICKING
gotta fight (DUN-DUNT!), for your right (THUMP-THUMP-THUMP-THUMP!),
Having kicked Rayman where his nads would be if he had joiny bits
and engaged all-out world domination mode, les Lapins Crétins
– aka the Rabbids, but you likely guessed that as you’re reading
something headed with the neologism “Rabbids” - have sussed-out
Kinect, decided it suits their plotty-plot-plots and unleashed more
of their endlessly spawning kind in a spoogemongous blorp of
Meh, they do it well, so why change stations when New Order’s
However, this collision of 40-or-so diversions utilises Kinecty
stuff that would have Wiis everywhere haughtily snapping “Non!” and
pouty-pouty-sulk-sulking. Stuff like actual body tracking, rather
than just vaguely following your arm end’s current whereabouts, for
starters. Sloppishniscent Rabbids getting dead horse (or, for
non-Aussies, “tomato sauce”, or, for non-Aussies who are also
American, “ketchup”) all over your games room? Well, down on your
knees and wipe it up, Cinderella bitch!
When we say in your games room, we mean it man. Augmented reality –
where the camera films your environs, sucks them onto your teev’s
screen and sticks extra shit (ooh, say like Rabbids) on to interact
with - is key to many pursuits here. Stomp Rabbids, punch Rabbids,
slap Rabbids; even evade the cold, zillion-yard stare of Rabbids...
play air guitar or pet your pet one if they get under your skin and
suddenly seem sweet. Awwww, Rabbidikins – MWAH-MWAH-MWAH!
Solo, A&K is pretty sucky, but it’s not meant to be
omniplayerish, it’s just there for tragic, buddyless fucks. Get
tribey, sink some and the vibe’s easily catchable, even if several
escapades last less time than they take to load.
Hate those rascally Rabbids? This won’t change your mind. But
they’ll sense your antipathitasticness and come to get you. Oh yes
they will – they’re everywhere! Everywhere!
