Hi, Everyone. <BR> <BR> I joined Spark back in July but haven't actually used it. I decided a couple of weeks ago to purchase and Xbox 360 and a Kinect to replay the Dragon Age and Mass Effect series and also to try the fitness and dance games. My primary gaming console is the PS4 but there really isn't anything comparable to the Kinect. Or there wasn't before VR was released. We will see how that eventually gets utilized. <BR> <BR> How do you guys feel about using movement games as part of...

I'm not ready to shell out $60 bucks right now, but the game looks epic. I like the games that take a long time, I'm a bit of a completest. <BR> <BR> One of my all time favorites is Ultima IV. I stopped playing at VI because my computer couldn't keep up with the game. <BR> <BR> Matt Fri, 12 Aug 2016 17:52:33 EST No Soda Challenge through Dec 2016 How many of you would like to join me in a no soda challenge until the end of December 2016 and possible further I'm trying to stop drinking sodas again Tue, 9 Aug 2016 00:55:28 EST Hi!

Other than running like crazy in the gas station I work at, I love to play dance dance revolution and swim. I'm absolutely addicted to the Dragon Age series lately and cant stop playing Inquisition.

If video games were real then __________ (fill in the blank). Just something fun for us to think back in video games and see what would be crazy if it happened in real life. I can think of one.

Hey Everyone, I am back and going to try to stick to this team and make it great again like the day that I founded it back several years ago. One of the biggest thing that made this team great was the biggest loser challenge. I was reading an article about a guy that made changes in life and lost 113 lbs in 90 days. Now I know we all can't spend lots of hours at the gym but if we can just aim to lose 1/3 of that in 3 months I think we are well better off because of it. Now, Tema will send out... Tue, 7 Jun 2016 13:01:57 EST What are you Playing right now Every now and then I like to ask what are you playing I haven't played anything since December and that was Banjo Kazooie Sat, 20 Feb 2016 18:41:40 EST Gaming Fanatic Looking for Spark Friends ~ Hello! <BR> <BR> My name is Dani ~ I've been playing video games my whole life, but I've just recently started taking my weight seriously, so I'm trying to connect with some other people who are also working on fitness and love video games. <BR> <BR> I'm in my senior year of college, and at my small uni apartment, I just have my PlayStation 3, Wii U, and Nintendo 3DS.

Tue, 12 Jan 2016 17:31:11 EST Rare Replay I just picked this game up today from Best Buy for 15.99 down from 29.99 on sale this week it's 30 of the old xbox 360 games on one disc it had about 10 of my favorites on there and for 16 bucks it was worth it Sun, 13 Sep 2015 16:52:32 EST Xbox 360 Games can now be played on Xbox One I just received an email from microsoft that all xbox 360 games are in the process of becoming backwards compatible that's good news for me at least because some of my favorite games are on 360 Fri, 7 Aug 2015 15:10:53 EST BattleBlock Theater This game is a comedy based game. From Wikipedia: <BR> <BR> Upon coming to, it is revealed that the entire crew of the S.S. Friendship is being held prisoner by cats, with Hatty as their apparent new leader. The player is then released from their cell and forced into deadly games by the feline wardens. The cats, who force their prisoners into deadly theater performances, watch with amusement as the player fights for their survival. As the player completes challenges, they find gems which are... Wed, 5 Aug 2015 07:30:31 EST Mortal Kombat X I'm so shocked there isn't a review for this game here! I could have missed it, though. <BR> <BR> Love LOVE this installment of the franchise. It's amazing. I can't believe the dramatic changes since the last Mortal Kombat. Predator DLC came out the other day. He is such a cool character to play! <BR> <BR> Anyone else love it?

Hope your quest for a healthy lifestyle is going well! <BR> <BR> With the advent of the Heists update for Grand Theft Auto V, I find myself in need of some friendly, reliable players to play with. <BR> <BR> Typically, my brother and I (He's in Idaho, I'm in NC) play in our own session to avoid drama. But the heists require 4 players. <BR> <BR> If you're interested, let me know. <BR> <BR> -Zay Mon, 20 Apr 2015 20:44:07 EST Heart for gaming, little time for it though Hey All! Perfect timing - My husband finally get committed to his new diet when we started calling it his "Spartan Program" from Halo :) We've been having fun coming up with ways that we can balance our gaming and tv watching with healthy living. <BR> <BR> So really fun to find a group of other gamers who are similarly inspired! Looking forward to getting to know you better! Tue, 7 Apr 2015 01:05:09 EST Fit Like Star Lord Challenge Feel free to delete this if you want, but I figured I'd let us gamers/comic book fans know about a chance to win prizes. If you're a Guardians of the Galaxy fan, consider heading over to the Fit Like Star Lord group for our newest contest!<BR>ssageboard_thread.asp?board=28816x6356<BR>0x60967361 Mon, 23 Mar 2015 09:51:15 EST Kinect for Xbox One So I was in game stop and saw that you can purchase the Kinect separately from the system...I'm thinking about getting that....Who has the new Kinect system what do you think I purchased both my Xbox Ones without the Kinect do you like it what games are out for the Kinect for Xbox One Sat, 7 Feb 2015 17:28:13 EST Anyone home? Doesn't seem to be many recent posts to the group (something I am guilty of too). What's up? Wed, 4 Feb 2015 17:00:24 EST Hi! from an old gamer. Hi. My name is Debra and I am 44 years old. I have been gaming for 34 years now. I started with Pong, then Atari, Colecovision, NES, SNES, Nitendo 64, Playstation 2, Xbox 360 and have finally joined the PC gaming world (thank goodness for Steam!). My son is an avid gamer and we have collected all the systems. We have a great video game store called Game Haven that sells new and retro games. I can't go in there by myself. Too tempting. Anyway, I am excited to find this team. <BR> Have a great ... Sat, 17 Jan 2015 22:22:42 EST Merry Christmas Everyone Merry Christmas All enjoy those new video games with family and friends have a wonderful day Thu, 25 Dec 2014 15:05:50 EST Terra Battle I lost a big post on Terra Battle, and I'm not about to redo it. Suffice it to say it's a turn-based RPG out on Android and iOS devices (though not Amazon's Kindle from what I can see). Turns are 4 seconds long and the key is maximizing character positioning in that 4 seconds. It is free to play unless you want to go the express route and buy energy (recruiting better characters) rather than saving it organically from combat/login bonuses. Check it out. Fri, 19 Dec 2014 12:55:59 EST 2014 Steam Holiday Sale is on now! Hi PC gamers - just wanted to let you all know that the Steam Holiday Sale is in full swing. Grab those bargains while you can! Fri, 19 Dec 2014 12:15:12 EST Dance Central Spotlight So if you were thinking of running out to the store and buying this game then think again. For 9.99 you can download this game with 10 songs. Unlike past Dance Central games this game is all about progression. Once certain moves are learned by doing them flawless 3 times then more are added. The workout mood is flushed out even more with routines that fit to your style of work out. Cardo and strength routines have been added but are not for the faint of heart. They are pretty tough. Just tell... Wed, 17 Dec 2014 08:03:55 EST Far Cry 4 If any of you have played Far Cry 3 then this game will be of no surprise in game play. Far Cry 4 takes place in south Asia around India instead of some dangerous island in Far Cry 3. Far Cry 4 is a first person shooter with RPG elements. Some of the things added are mountain climbing as well a helicopter type vehicle to fly around this huge open. World. Not so open until you beat some missions, but still huge. There are new animals added as well as elephants are rideable and who doesn't wan...

Valiant Hearts is a puzzle/adventure game set in France immediately preceding and during World War I. With all the WWII shooters that have flooded the market, it's impressive to see a narrative set in an almost forgotten war using an equally almost forgotten game genre to tell its tale. <BR> <BR> While some of the mechanics weren't immediately obvious to me, and I did need help with some of the puzzle s...

I played through the story mode on PC (as a Witch Doctor) and story and adventure modes on PS4 as a Barbarian. I have to say, as good as the PC version is, I prefer the PS4 edition. The controls seem more intuitive/easy to get at, and certain small perks have been added to enhance the experience - such as smashing 8+ objects nets you a move... Tue, 9 Dec 2014 13:00:02 EST New here Hi all, my name is Altria, I am a gamer and anime fan, looking to lose somewhere in the neighborhood of 50-60lbs.

You can also set your own real life rewards to be bought with the gold you earn in game, thus rewarding your real life habits/to-do's with real life rewards.

Has anyone played this yet and if so, how was it? Fri, 11 Apr 2014 10:24:41 EST Hey Hi, my name's Dave. I'm 29, from WV. I lost about 50 lbs last year. I went from 230 to 180. I've been going to the gym, running and being a lot more conscious about what I eat. I'm still not happy with my body though. I have definitely made improvements, but not as much as I'd like. I lost weight and it's very noticeable, but I can't seem to get rid of the belly and my muscles really only show if I flex. I know that a big part of it is me not being as serious as I should be. I've had lazy per... Wed, 9 Apr 2014 12:00:40 EST Xbox One - Xbox Fitness I have been using Xbox Fitness daily, if anyone else wants to be friends my gamertag is: <BR> <BR> Khakis N Chuckz Tue, 11 Mar 2014 14:12:53 EST The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot This is a new game, still in open beta. Half of the game play and interface is very similar to Diablo, with health and mana globes, skills, and inventory on the UI, limited inventory slots, etc. The other half is a castle-building exercise, with creatures and traps galore to protect your treasure. <BR> <BR> Cons: It is a bit cartoony, corny, and weird. It has microtransactions, which can foster a community of play-to-win people. It is very twitchy-intensive when running the dungeons (which m... Mon, 10 Mar 2014 10:59:09 EST Hi, folks. I am not your typical gamer, as I am a 55 year old mother of two twenty-somethings, who are also gamers. Due to several health problems, I have been limited in what I can do in the form of exercise - even walking is painful due to arthritis. I have been a gamer for as long as there have been games - my family was the first family on the block to get an Atari ... I was playing Dungeons and Dragons in college before it became AD&D ... does anyone else remember The Impossible Mission, Zork, and ... Mon, 10 Mar 2014 10:24:57 EST I Left My Heart in Gransys – Dragon's Dogma Capcom’s Western-style RPG may have slipped under your radar when it released last May. It certainly slipped under mine, as I was still adventuring in the snowy north of Skyrim. A few weeks ago, however, I decided to give it a chance, aiming to scratch my Monster Hunter and Elder Scrolls itches simultaneously. And let me tell you, I was blown away. <BR> <BR> A giant, Latin-speaking dragon descends on your fishing village, and plucks your heart out. Then, newly “Arisen,” you are tasked with f...

I have only played a couple of hours and I can only say this game is massive. There is so many things to do in this game. Taking the point of view of 3 different people is amazing in its story telling aspect of the game. I have only gotten through the first hiest of the game and its been great so far. I will let you know more as I get further into the game. Wed, 25 Sep 2013 10:46:35 EST XB1 Will Launch on November 22 So it is now official. XB1 will be launching in the US and 13 other territories on November 22nd. Do you think that its wise for XB1 to launch one week after Sony releases the PS4? Will Sony have the major advangtage being out one whole week or since all the preorders are sold out will it even matter in the long run. 399 PS4 or a 499 XB1, I guess I will have to listen to all the Sony fan boys talk about their PS4 for whole week lol. Wed, 4 Sep 2013 11:38:06 EST TitanFall I know alot of us having had a chance to play this yet but I got my first hands on exclusive on this highly anticipated game for 2014 and I will have to admit that this is a must have game for XBOX one and 360. The version of the game I was playing was 360 but I can only imagine how much better the XB1 version will be. Most of you have already seen videos of the game. It's a multiplayer type COD game where one team is tryign to defeat the other team. However its play so much different. Think ...

It is a not pretty in the ways of graphics and may not be be a triple A title and it may have some repetitive play but this this a stilla great game. The purpose of the game is to try to escape the county from a zombie outbreak. You will have to scavange for resources, builing material, food, medical, and ammo. You must also set up a home base and create outpost that will increase your safe areas. Vehicles are available... Mon, 19 Aug 2013 14:52:12 EST XB1 and PS4 now So after all the back and forth of what each console will and will not do it seems that both consoles are exactly the same in almost everyway. They both will do TV, online media, social sharing, ect. So what does that mean now? News have been coming in that the XB1 is gaining momentum in sales and there was even a repor that it will "ship" more than the PS4. So expect shortages for both consoles this holiday season.

Before that I was an sf/fantasy writer (every so often I still write some). Love yoga and qigung as well as meditation and taking walks. I'm generally an MMO fan, though I do love Minecraft and interactive fiction. Favorite MMO is still LOTRO (my husband and I used to play Wow a lot but gave up around "Mists"). I'm here to get a regular workout schedule going - nothing major, I ... Fri, 28 Jun 2013 14:03:55 EST What do you think of XB1 reversal of policies? So I think the decision was made at the top of microsoft after E3 to drop its polices on used games and always online pinging. What do you think of the decision? Now that this has happend do you think Microsoft has not focus on the future since people were not ready to embrace the model? <BR> Mon, 24 Jun 2013 16:22:38 EST The Last of Us Naughty Dogs game the last of us follows the story of Joel a survivor from the initial outbreak of a fungi infection that has spread to humanity transforming into zombie like creatures. He is accompanied later by Elle a young teenager who has never seen the world up close outside of her shelter.

Tue, 11 Jun 2013 00:41:44 EST So what did everyone think of M$'s E3 Conference? For me, it was a pretty spectacle - Battlefield looked pretty amazing as did the driving games and that neat title where you can create or destroy the landscape around you. Unfortunately it did nothing to assuage my fears about the always-online BS and the destruction of used gaming. And 500$ for a new console? <BR> <BR> EDIT: Just found out that the footage showed for Battlefield was actually being played on the PC! lolwtfbbq Mon, 10 Jun 2013 15:42:02 EST XBOX One and PS4 So IGN made a people choice type voting on the next gen console. I felt it to be overly bias since MS did not demonstrate the games on the new console. However the items that were voted on where <BR> <BR> 1. Best Controller <BR> 2. Best Name <BR> 3. Best Annoucement Conference <BR> 4. Which one is best for you. <BR> <BR> Based on those criteria let me know what you think. Tue, 4 Jun 2013 10:18:45 EST Used Games On Next Gen Consoles So we have heard about used games on next gen consoles from one compay but do you think this a problem? The CEO of games stop said in a interview that 70% of games stop revenues is new games. So if the XBOX One and PS4 stop accepting them or find a way to charge for used games on their console do you think this to be a problem? Tue, 4 Jun 2013 09:55:34 EST Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dying Okay I found this on Youtube when I was surfing the net and it was really interesting to watch. I recommend you watch and possible try it for at least 10 days.

It's available on the PlayStation Network. I play this game whenever life has driven me to the brink with stress, fear, disappointment...and I always feel better afterward. It's beautiful and relaxing and reminds me of my own journey in life and the impact we have on everyone we meet along the way. Most of all though, no matter how tough it gets the reward is always worth it. <BR> <BR> <link> </link> Fri, 24 May 2013 08:34:31 EST The Next XBOX PS3 has reveal their new hardward.

Fri, 22 Mar 2013 11:22:42 EST Have Games Become to Easy? I was reading an blog from IGN about how games have become too easy now a days. Do you think that is the case? Give us your opinion on the topic. Now its not about lives anymore and continues but regenerating health and shields and check points. Tue, 19 Mar 2013 12:40:23 EST Tomb Raider I have not gotten a chance to pop in Tomb Raider into my system yet but I am sure I will like it from what I am hearing. I am still not sure why they spent the time to do a multiplayer but oh well I think now a days they think they need to have one included. Has anyone picked up this title? Mon, 18 Mar 2013 16:02:34 EST Simulator sickness I had a case of motion sickness when playing a demo of Gears of War 3. I researched a bit and discovered it is not uncommon in gamers. They call it simulator sickness. Fancy name for nausea and dizziness. Some people are affected by games that are in First Person view and some people are affected by games that are in Third Person view. Some people aren't affected by either...lucky for them. <BR> <BR> I have no problem with First Person view games like Halo, Crysis, or Skyrim. I had planned ... Mon, 11 Mar 2013 12:25:23 EST Gears of War Judgment New GoW game coming out 3/19/13 called Gears of War Judgment. I haven't played any of the previous ones, but I am probably going to get this one. I think it's a third person shooter. I think it has campaign play and multi-player. I am looking at the pre-order bonuses to decide where to buy it. I think it comes with Gears of War 1 (DLC) and some other stuff. Microsoft store offers 1600 MS points. Amazon? Walmart offers in addition to the standard pre-order bonuses, a choice of GoW 2 or GoW ...

I think working out at my house was more of a distraction than anything else. Kids need to get bathe, Eat dinner, help with homework. My wife had been going to the gym and said thats what she needed to get away from all the madness. LOL. So we will trade off handling the kids. I will go first and when i get back she goes and vice versa. Hopefully I can stick with it..

I think most of us never hear the fat jokes people say behind our backs and I dont think I ever heard of on said to my face but this past Saturday I had someone that has no moral ask me something that I made me feel angy and shocked, depressed all at the same time. I was coming out with my family from the chinese buffet carrying my daughter when two men approached me and ask if there is any food left or should they turn back right now. At first I was shocked that someone would even ask me tha... Wed, 20 Feb 2013 14:14:18 EST Crysis 3 This game comes out on 2/19/13. I haven't played any previous crysis games. I know it's a FPS, which I prefer. I like the Halo games, currently playing thru Halo 4. I am doing the campaign and Spartan Ops solo. I play all my games solo. I love Skyrim TES! Does anyone have an opinion or experience with Crysis games? How much of the game would I be able to play solo? What are your thoughts as compared to Halo and Skyrim? Do you think I would like it? I'd probably just start with Crysis 3. I use...

Thu, 7 Feb 2013 10:11:27 EST Sony's February 20th Announcement Sony has made it known that they will have a special announcement on Feburary 20th about something big. Could it be the unvailing of the new PS4? We will just have to wait and see if that is the case. Rumors have been that the new dualshock 4 controllers will have a touch pad where the sony logo and start button is. Kinda of weird but not to be confused with the touchscreen on the wii U controller. If Sony does annouce the PS4 it would go back on their earlier annoucement that they would wait...

Thu, 31 Jan 2013 20:28:58 EST Zumba Fitness Core Okay Just wanted to put this small review out there of this game. If you own the prior version of the game then you are not going to see much of an improvement. The same still holds true with the animation of the characters in the game. It just seems the used the already made game and rolled it into this one with new songs. Which I have to add are not very good or memoriable. I tired it for a week and was tired of it. If you want a game to work out to that has good beats do a dance central ga...
