But would you want to?

Classic Cave shoot 'em up DoDonPachi is one of the most intense shooters of the late 90s, but do you know what would make it even more intense? Playing it with your entire body.

Cave's Makoto Asada is working on a Kinect adventure game known as Instant Brain that includes a version of DoDonPachi playable with Kinect.

Your ship fires automatically while you guide it around the screen with one hand, using your laser and bombs by moving your other hand toward the screen or above your head.

There's also some adventure about taking photos of attractively drawn women, also playable with Kinect if you want your hands free. Here's the trailer:

Having played this game for many years, I can safely say that you would NOT want to play this with Kinect. It's mind-numbingly hard with a stick. You gotta have your Christmas bells screwed on tight for this one. :D
