We’re all for swooping in to save the day at the last second, by this is getting ridiculous. After a strong 2010, Microsoft’s been eerily silent about what’s next for its old-but-not-over-the-hill box. Or at least, that’s been the case as far as games go. But the whole “videogame console” thing is only half the battle, and Microsoft’s now got a much larger target in its sights: “entertainment.”

The embargo’s officially lifted on Kinect, and boy was it damming back a serious flood of content. As in, this may be the Internet’s Noah’s Ark. Seriously people, grab two of whatever rodent happens to be scurrying through your house, build a boat, and jump past the break. Oh, and don’t forget to bring a paddle. And some tissues. You’ll need them to dab up the tears of blood that’ll be oozing from your eyes after all this reading.

Interview part one – THQ Core boss Danny Bilson on Move/Kinect, creativity, MOH controversy, tons more
When you hear “THQ,” what springs to mind? Wrestling games? Ni-ni-ni-ni-ni-ni-ni-ni-Nickelodeon? Well then, you might want to crawl out from under that rock you’ve spent the last few years living underneath.
Where’s Tim Schafer these days? THQ. How about Ninja Gaiden/Dead or Alive creator Tomonobu Itagaki? Same. And what’s this about Guillermo del Toro? The bottom line: THQ’s come a long, long way – but it’s far from done.
Leading the way has been THQ Core boss Danny Bilson, who was kind enough to take some time out from his busy schedule of interacting with some of the most interesting people in the industry to chat with little ol’ us. So we basically projectile vomited questions in his face, which he was surprisingly ok with.
Click past the break to hear Bilson’s thoughts on core Move/Kinect games, the need for creativity in the gaming industry, how we should handle touchy subjects like the recent Medal of Honor controversy, 3D, Tim Schafer, and plenty more!
