Hello readers! Quick update, I am going to revive this blog! So be sure to check back for more of the mediocrity that you know and love.
Also, we are in the process of changing the name from Games in a Nutshell to something more….broad. We would like to start doing all aspects of entertainment instead of just strictly games. If you have any suggestions, be sure to post in the comments.
Until next time fellow readers.

In all it’s anticipation and hype, Kinect for the Xbox 360 has finally arrived. The Kinect is a motion sensing camera that you can play games with, so you may get up off your couch and put down the controller (Obama is happy). Many people were skeptical about this device even working at all. Adverts and videos for the Kinect show off all it’s glory, but does it really do everything it says? Does this device actually work well? Find out after the jump. JUMP!

There has been some rumors going around about a slim 360 to be announced at E3, but microsoft completely surprised us on this one. Microsoft did not announce a slim 360 or even a new Xbox alltogether. They have announced a new 360. “That is a slim 360, retard,” you say? No, in fact is is not. The all new Xbox has been said to be whisper quiet with a 256 GB hard drive, Kinect ready and it has built in Wi Fi. For those of you who do not know, Kinect is the new name for Natal, Microsoft’s motion reading device. This new Xbox looks very sleek and beautiful. Let’s just hope that the price point is reasonable as well.
