Tara Long's Kinect Fitness CHALLENGE! photo
Tara Long's Kinect Fitness CHALLENGE!
by Tara Long

As co-host of The Destructoid Show, I consider it my prerogative - nay, my mission - to embarrass myself on a near daily basis. It's not something I typically take issue with, as long as I can say that at the end of the day, it was for journalism. Needless to say, when I pitched the idea of a Kinect-themed fitness segment to our producer, I was immediately met with an incredulous, "Are you sure you want to do that? People are going to see this, you know."

So, after some heavy reconsideration and one too many gin and tonics, I decided to go for it. Who needs a future career in politics anyway, right?

Check out the video above for my run-down of some of Kinect's top fitness games, including Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012, UFC Personal Trainer, Zumba Fitness Rush, and more!

UFC on Xbox Live entering the Octagon on December 20

Think you know the more about the Ultimate Fighting Championship than any of your Xbox Live friends? Starting December 1, you will be able to put your mixed martial arts knowledge to the test when the UFC on Xbox Live superman punches its way onto the dashboard.

At its core, UFC on Xbox Live is just another way for MMA patrons to watch UFC pay-per-view events from the comfort of their couch. You won’t find any special exclusive matches on the service since the Xbox Live platform is being treated the same as all PPV providers in terms of fight content. Basically, this means all the pre-PPV fights that happen on Spike or Facebook will stay on those services to keep the market as balanced as possible.

So that begs the question: why should UFC and Xbox Live users alike care about this service?

UFC Undisputed 3 combat trailer brings the pain

  THQ dropped their latest trailer for next year's UFC Undisputed 3. One of the big pushes -- as evident by all the sweaty men beating the crap out of each other -- is the myriad of advanced techniques added to the game....

It's time! Time for another installment in THQ's mixed martial arts fighting franchise, UFC Undisputed 3.

UFC Undisputed took the gaming world by storm in 2009, but its follow-up UFC Undisputed 2010 didnt quite reach the same sales echelon as its predecessor despite critical acclaim. Maybe it was the fact that the game was touted as more of a refined version of 2009 rather than a full-fledged sequel (that's the reason I skipped out.)

Whatever the case, THQ is throwing in the kitchen sink with this year's update to not only attract a wider range of players but also provide those who did pick up 2010 a reason to travel back down a familiar road.

E3: UFC Live coming to Xbox 360

Microsoft is partnering with UFC to broadcast live pay-per-view events over Xbox Live. Not only that, but these events will be interactive -- you can call fights, see trainer stats and watching training videos, all while it's streaming the live fights.  So that's pretty awesome if you like watching men in underpants punch people directly on their skulls!
