Get your Move on

I think it's safe to say that Sony is doing a bang up job with the peripheral so far. The starter bundle they initially released instantly gets you ready to get up and move with everything you need. You get a move controller, a game, the Playstation Eye camera with a reasonable price to boot. The Move game included with the bundle is Sports Champions. A great show-offer game and just a glimps of what this hardware is capable of. The potential of future Move games is immense and I can't wait to see developers go crazier and bigger with this peripheral in the coming years.

One huge plus from this peripheral comes with the step forward of finess in video games. Can a game console possibly substitute for the great outdoors? A bike ride or a brisk jog? Probably not, but one game that can definitelt get your heart pumping, your body sweating, and your arms absolutely burning is The Fight: Lights Out.

Your very own personal trainer

The Fight: Lights out might be a game you've already heard about, and possibly own, but if you don't and you have the Playstation Move I suggest you invest in this game now.

The top video game critics actually ripped this game to shreds, proclaiming that its "Barely a game" and that the gameplay is "Frustrating, tiring, boring." It was the horrible review scores that turned me away from this game when it first came out and it makes me angry to know just how great this game always was and still is. The reviewers couldn't of had been more wrong and after a month of playing the game I'm pretty sure why.

First of all this game should be considered a fitness game. Who would expect a compelling story line with a game title like that?

Second, I truly believe the reviewers didn't put much time into the actual game itself. Off the bat your character's moves aren't 1:1 with yours yet. You have to train your character and build his stats, only then you will see the true potential of this game.

Third, the game is just plain fun. What better way to relieve stress than by virtually beating the crap out of some guy a dummy, or a punching bag? Add the fact that this game has online multiplayer and is less than $40 and you got your self a decent, fun game that could also get you in shape, moving and burning calories.

Please do not trust the video game reviewers opinion of this game at all what so ever.

If they were to put more time into this game they would find it to be an actual viable method of burning calories and losing weight. For the month or so I owned the game I felt the burn the very next day in my biceps, triceps, and the muscles in my back I didn't even know I had. The training options have you sparring with dummies, hitting punching bags and many other means of upgrading your character. With the $4.99 fitness pack add-on you can push your fitness training even further and in my opinion is a must buy also. One new mode was with a trainer that has you performing timed punching combos. It's an experience that works, is fun, and is only one of the many new training methods you get from the fitness pack. I was out of breath when I first tried the new methods out and their were times I couldn't even play the next day due to the muscle burn you can get from this game. Keep in mind though that you will not lose pounds and pounds of weight, but you will feel the burn and with enough time, you could see results in the mirror like I did.

Check out some reviews!

So what are you waiting for? Jump in to the next level of fun and fitness today. It won't hurt, well maybe except for your entire upper body the next day.
