I'm standing by to hear some testimony as to whether or not this actually helps people shed some pounds, or is it tamer like Wii Fit. Was thinking of buying an excersice bike but hell might as well have some fun while losing weight and get this instead, for a good deal cheaper too! XD

It definitely can help you lose weight; as Soundwave says, basically any sustained cardio exercise will make you lost weight if you keep it up. (And don't sabotage yourself by eating badly) But like all weight loss, the key is commitment from the individual. If you're willing to put the physical effort in, you will get results. :)

Clearly there's still an audience for fitness in gaming.

My country is ok sometimes, nice.


That launch trailer was great too, looks so good.



It certainly looks interesting

Well therein lies the problem for me first and foremost, definitely been eating/drinking bad lately heh. So definitely have to improve that above all else, but just wondering in terms of a good was to supplement that with real exercise, if Ring Fit would actually make me sweat and feel like a real workout. Based on a review I saw at Gameexplain it somewhat seems to be the case anyway, at least more than Wii Fit, which to me just rarely seemed to actually feel like a real workout unless I totally binged on the jogging and boxing, which sort of got repetitive and boring, thus ruining the point. 

Mind you I had been used to hitting it pretty hard with one of those fan bikes with the moving arms and really breaking a sweat, so I'm used to heavy cardio activity. Ring Fit doesn't seem quite at that high-intensity level but it at least seems mid-range.

Yeah pretty much all the reviews/previews suggest that it'll give you a decent workout and get your heart going, much more so than Wii Fit. Plus the deeper and more varied gameplay should keep it more engaging.



Losing weight and getting fit are two incredibly different things. I can't say much about losing weight as I have never been overweight, but I would say it is as easy as not eating food as often, stay away from fatty foods (oil, deep-fried, packaged stuff, bakery stuff, etc...). It's pretty simplistic and requires the opposite of effort.

Getting fit, though, that requires effort. That is the metric of importance.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

OK, I switched from a “might pick it up eventually” to a picked it up at launch. I forgot to note that.

As a note, this is my second favourite original game on Switch.

From watching people it seems this game actually requires some real physical effort which is pretty impressive. I'd totally die if I tried to play this lul.

Worth picking up then? Didn't really want to pay $100CDN plus tax at game launch, but it most likely won't change too much until a long time down the road
