Forget Homefront, Fantastic Pets for the Xbox 360 and Kinect is where THQ is going to make the big bucks. What other game projects a flying unicorn or robot cat into your living room?

Before we begin, no, that’s not a pegasus. A pegasus only has wings. This mother here has wings and a horn, making it a flying unicorn, which is also the name of a truly horrible sexual position.

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, it’s Fantastic Pets! It’s like Kinectimals, Sony’s EyePet, and the children’s book section at Borders had a massive party, and one of them wound up pregnant. Using the power of augmented reality, Fantastic Pets makes your ordinary pets look like the mite-infested parasites they really are.

I just looked at one of my cats and asked him why he wasn’t a robot. He did not answer. Then I pointed a water gun at him, and he ran away. A robot cat would have stood tall in the face of danger. He’ll probably pee in the corner. I think I’ve made my point.

Fantastic Pets is due out next month on the Xbox 360. I will own it, if only to let my pets know they can be replaced.
