If you let the recent $35 Child of Eden deal at Amazon pass you buy, you made what is, in retrospect, a shrewd move, because now you can get it for $30. The discount is part of a Kinect sale going on at GameStop through July 20, which brings four other Ubisoft Kinect games down to $30, including...

Our five-star review of Child of Eden praised just about everything the game had to offer, short of its diminutive length. "You can beat it in a single sitting (or, as the case may be, standing), with the game's five chapters clocking in at a scant 90 minutes," our own Griffin McElroy wrote. "It...

If you just paid attention to the marketing for Child of Eden, you'd think it was an Xbox 360 exclusive. But there's totally a PS3 version coming out in September. According to Q? Entertainment producer James Mielke, the delay had nothing to do with Microsoft moneyhats, and everything to do with...

So, here's the thing about Child of Eden: It is quite short. That's a somewhat pedestrian complaint to leverage against a game -- and an extraordinarily pedestrian complaint to leverage in the very first sentence of a review -- but it needs to be said right up front to temper your expectations. Y...

It might not bring you to tears, but under the right "conditions" -- like lighting and stuff -- we bet you could totally see some crazy things in this magical Child of Eden pre-order bonus poster (full image) from GameStop. At the very least, it's compatible with any old wall you tack it to. Typi...

It seemed like a fine idea for a feature. Armed with a early preview disc for Ubisoft's upcoming Child of Eden, I would compare the game's two methods of control, the good old-fashioned thumbstick and buttons and the newfangled Kinect method. Then, when comparing the scores for both, I'd have a...

So, you want to know how to synesthese with the best of 'em? Q? Entertainment is here to help with a new tutorial trailer for Child of Eden. Don't worry, you won't need any special accessories.

Ubisoft calls this new Child of Eden trailer (after the break) the "Mood" trailer, but your choice of platform will greatly what effect it will have on your disposition. If you're planning to seek synaesthesia through your Xbox, you'll be able to experience euphoria as you delight in these visual...
