Wii Fit U weekly weigh-in: Week 3

[Every week, from early November through the end of 2013, I'll report on my use of Wii Fit U and how it benefits my health.] Read Week 1's weigh-in here. If this Wii Fit U weekly weigh-in accomplishes only one thing, I want it to be a clear measure of just how much weight I'll gain Thanksgiving week. It's going to be gross, folks.

Impressions: Xbox Fitness

One thing I don't see discussed often in regards to exercise is the high price tag involved with intense workouts. Although you can find a local gym for fairly cheap and get fit on your own, getting to the next level sometime...

[Every week, from early November through the end of 2013, I'll report on my use of Wii Fit U and how it benefits my health.]

Read Week 1's weigh-in here.

If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I'm always on the quest for good food. I'm one of those a-holes that tweets pictures of his food all day. After one post earlier this week, one of my followers asked me if I ever ate anything healthy. I told him that I wouldn't want to waste my life doing that.

But now I look at my stomach... 

I was in New York all week, covering the PS4 launch as well as meeting with Microsoft on Xbox One. I'm in the city about 5 or 6 times a year, and when I'm there I eat a lot. So this week's weigh-in should be interesting.

Wii Fit U weekly weigh-in: Week 1
by Dale North

[Every week, from early November through the end of 2013, I'll report on my use of Wii Fit U and how it benefits my health.]

This year, being the biggest console launch year in a decade, has been really busy for me. I normally travel over 80,000 miles a year for Destructoid, but this year has me nearly doubling that, and it's not over yet. 

I eat well everywhere I go. It has become sort of a goal to find the best food I can in every city I visit. So I leave home for a week, pig out, come home stuffed, stressed, sometimes hung over, and  always lacking rest, doing this every two weeks or so.

I looked down at my stomach last week. And on the floor, just past my bulging gut, I saw the Wii Fit Balance Board...

Oculus Rift + stationary bike + Kinect = Paperboy

Globacore has combined a stationary bike, the Oculus Rift, and the Kinect to create PaperDude VR, an homage to Paperboy. The video here shows off the game in action, and holy crap do I want this. It's probably not a good idea to throw actual newspapers when you play the game though.

Free fitness tracker Kinect PlayFit hits Xbox Live today photo
Free fitness tracker Kinect PlayFit hits Xbox Live today
by Jordan Devore

The rumored Kinect PlayFit application for Xbox 360 that tracks calories burned across multiple games has released for free today in the United States. Further regions will get access to the download later this week, according to Xbox Live's Larry Hryb.

I have a feeling this app won't be particularly relevant for many of you, but similar to Holly, I tend to use my Kinect more for cardio than anything else. So, neat, I guess? For what it's worth, Kinect PlayFit even has Achievements. I've yet to see the full list of supported games, but Dance Central 2 and Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012 were both specifically mentioned.
