Scary Video Games to Play This Halloween (some FREE)

There are several games that you can play to get you in that Halloween mood.  Many of them are FREE this weekend, thanks to OnLive.  (see details of free games here)

One of the scariest games of all time is Amnesia: The Dark Descent.  I am almost willing to bet money that you can't get through the whole game with the lights off and sound up.  Here is the trailer:

The next game I recommend for Halloween is FEAR 3.  It has a single player story, co-op, and multiplayer.  Here is a clip of me playing it on OnLive:

Finally, for the Kinect lovers out there, you should really check out Rise of Nightmares.  Here is a link to my review and below is my video review.  It got a lot of flack for not being like other horror games on Xbox, but I found it great for a Kinect game.  Here's my video review:

A Contest for Dance Central 2

Thanks to the great folks at Harmonix, I'm able to give away two copies of Dance Central 2 to members of my Kinect to Fitness and Health group.

Busy Week for Kinect Reviews

Today is a huge day for the Kinect.  Lots of titles released today and I got a chance to review a few of them already.  Here are the reviews for the following games:

Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster Review
Forza Motorsport 4 Review
Kinectimals Now with Bears! Review

The reason I'm excited about doing these reviews is because in each one, I have a link that directs readers to leave comments at my Xbox Kinect to Fitness and Health group on  The group is definitely growing and people are doing some amazing things.  Every day I am seeing people getting motivated to play their Kinect and they are getting healthier and more active in the process.  That is the true beauty of working out with the Kinect; it is so fun that you don't find it a chore.

There are a few more games that have come out and I am hoping to do reviews for: Just Dance 3, Hulk Hogan's Main Event, Michael Phelps Push the Limit, and Wipeout 2.  Next week's releases include: Twister Mania, PowerUp Heroes, and Minute to Win It.  Plus, there are a whole bunch more games coming out after that.  Exciting times for a Kinect owner!

Thanks to all my readers and supporters.  Together we are on a journey to see more and more people reach their health and fitness goals.
