Get Your Game On: Video Game Release Roundup

Tis the season for great new video games and with the recent revelation that active gaming can actually aid those of us who are working on our fitness - I am guessing more and more of you are going to consider picking up the Wiimote, controller or joystick and getting in on the hardcore gamer action going on out there. In case you haven't been in the loop lately (as in the whole spring), an entire army of great games have been released for every console. Can't find anyone to join you? Remind them that 1 hour of PS3/Xbox on the couch burns 204 calories. Which means all you have to do is sit your bootie on the couch and not pick up the Cheetos. Ready, set, game!

Cooking Mama: Cook Off isn't as good as Cooking Mama for the Nintendo DS, from what I've heard. Imagine cracking an egg without using your hands...yeah, that's what Cooking Mama: Cook Off is supossed to simulate. And goodness, video games based on movies? They're all doomed for failure - except for the Spider-Man video games, they've been amazing. I'm a video game nerd, obviously. :)

oh, I think I'll get the DDR for the 360. 900 cals in 1 hour is better than my treadmill & elliptical and probably more fun too! lol I didn't realize it was available for the 360 yet.
