This spring, if you want to ditch the extra pounds you’ve gained this winter and turn into a leaner, fitter you, you’re going to need to get started somewhere. But in a world where commuting, kids, and extra long hours at work can take up all your time, how do you fit in a work out?
The answer is fitness games. These handy game titles work with your XBOX 360 and Wii U, and although you may not think they’ll get the job done, you’d be surprised at how you’ll break a sweat playing a fit game. In fact, after trying one of them out myself for 6 weeks, I’d say they feel much less ‘game’ and much more like pain.

Why settle merely for revenge, or vengeance, when you can have Revengeance! In this newest Metal Gear game, we follow cyberninja Raiden as he cuts his way through a sea of cyborgs. Utilizing a free slice mechanic, Revengeance boasts a 'slice anything' frame of mind, and I have a funny feeling that's just what we're going to do.
So, what does an engineer know about exterminating horrible undead monstrosities? More than a little, sadly, Isaac Clarke has to be the unluckiest dude in space. It seems everywhere he turns people go crazy, start getting violent, and then their bodies turn into crawling, climbing, jumping, acid spewing beasties. Where's my Plasma Cutter? The necromorphs are back, with Dead Space 3

Hand gliding, jetskiing, swimming in azure waters, yes, the Rook Islands have everything you'd want in a tropical paradise... problem is they have a few other things besides, like pirates for example. A new open world romp from the folks at Ubisoft Montreal, why not join some rebels, fight some pirates, and punch a few sharks with Far Cry 3?

We take a look back at some of the more memorable Action/Adventure games released in 2012. From World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria (Pictured) to Darksiders II, check out this list of 10 of the best games of the genre to come out this year. This is the first of two parts.
The remorseless Agent 47 is back. Six years since his last batch of assignments, and the perfect assassin is holstering his dual silenced pistols once again. Praised for its open ended gameplay and more sublte approach to mission completion, the Hitman franchise is back on the shelves with its newest chapter, Hitman Absolution.
The little crime Sim that could, Sleeping Dogs had adversity step on its face, repeatedly, but still managed to rally and release. Capitalizing on the gap in the game shelf left by GTA V's 2013 release date, UFG has continued to support their open world crim sim with an ongoing series of DLC. With gaming gift season on the horizon, we outline the growing list of content that make this Canadian made title a great gift for the gamer on your list.
Every November, parents begin to enter their annual holiday panic mode. What do their kids want this year? Making the right choice can mean all the difference between a good holiday and the best holiday ever.
Whether you are hard-core fans like myself or new to the world of Call of Duty, you’re in for a treat with the latest edition, Call of Duty Black Ops 2. Just when you think it can’t get any better, it does!
One of gaming's biggest titles is back with the first of a new trilogy. Helmed by a fledgling studio, tasked with bringing Master Chief back at the end of one console generation, and into the next, can 343 Industries validate bringing back the big man in green armor, or should he have been left on ice?
11 years on, since Halo Combat evolved and changed how we looked at video game consoles forever, we have the fourth iteration of the Halo Franchise. Bungie has stepped aside, and 343 Industries have taken the helm, and aim to stamp their signature on this iconic IP.
The third (though technically fifth) installment of Assassin's Creed is upon us. The massively successful assassin simulator has always used periods of the world's history as a vehicle, but this time we're heading to the American Revolution, with what seems to be a more ambitious slice of history.
The present day tale of Desmond Miles nears conclusion on October 30th, and Ubisoft is ready to transport you back to the American Revolution for the adventures of Connor Kenway. On which console will you play the story out?
It's only been 3 weeks since Gearbox Software dropped t Borderlands 2 on us, and already we have two pieces of DLC, a new character class and an expansion. It might seem a little soon, but for those of us who have been playing since release, is a great incentive to keep playing, lets take a look!
