Zumba Fitness 2: Get sweaty in front of your TV

Today I have been reminded that some people actually go out of their way to move around, even when playing videogames. If that's your cup of tea, then perhaps Zumba Fitness 2 will be right up your street. Apparently Zumba is...

Exercise games tend to forget that they are supposed to be just that: Games. On the other hand, Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012 promises to strike the balance between burning calories and being entertaining at the same time.

E3: Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012 coming in 2011

I'm currently watching the Ubisoft E3 press conference, and ever since Mr Caffine showed up, it's turned into some sort of mind bending, nightmarish twilight zone. I'm not sure where I am or what I'm doing. That's why I can't...

Hands-on: UFC Personal Trainer for Kinect photo
Hands-on: UFC Personal Trainer for Kinect
by Tara Long

I’m not even going to pretend like I watch UFC. There’s just something about the act of punching a guy’s teeth in and then kneeing him in the face until he chokes on his own blood that leaves me feeling a little uneasy. That said, it’s a well loved display of showmanship and I can’t discount the entertainment it provides to millions of people across the world.

UFC Personal Trainer is the newest Kinect fitness game that takes a look behind the flash and spectacle of ultimate fighting to the demanding and strenuous MMA training all UFC fighters go through. The result is a hardcore fitness game that its creators think will be beneficial to just about everyone. The downside? You probably won’t learn how to cagefight.

ExerBeat is a fun exercise game for the Wii photo
ExerBeat is a fun exercise game for the Wii
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

After the Kinect came out, I never thought I'd go back to the Wii for my exercise needs until I tried out ExerBeat. The Wii exclusive is fun and the onscreen prompts showing you exactly how to do the moves you need to do are very helpful. I only tried out the Karate section where I had to do actual karate moves with my arms. I was sweating within the first two-minutes of the routine!

There are 155 exercises broken into eight different types of workouts. You'll be able to routines in Hip hop, Latin Dance, Aerobics, Boxercising, Karate, Karate Forms, Yoga/Pilates and Stretching. ExerBeat is up to two-players and will support MotionPlus and the Balance Board. Expect to pickup the game this Spring.

I pretended to be a clock in Body and Brain Connection photo
I pretended to be a clock in Body and Brain Connection
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Think Brain Age made for the Kinect when looking at Body and Brain Connection for the Xbox. It's a fair comparison seeing as how Dr. Kawashima is behind this title. The game involves you using both your mind and body in order to perform the necessary actions that come up on the screen.

I checked out the mini-game where your arms represent the arms to an analog clock and you have to move your arms around in order to match the digital time that gets displayed. It sounds stupid, but I actually had fun with it. All of the games have some sort of mental puzzle you need to solve by answering with your body.

There are over 20 exercises for up to four-players and will be out next week on February 8.
