    Would you say this is it the Wii fit series since it rhymes and everything?

    The cringe is way hard here.
    Surprised it'sban actual game instead of mini games collection is kinda nice.
    I'd find myself too embaressed to play it in front of others just cause how cartoony it looks.
    It's all part of the goofiness I guess.
    I feel liks "ab shield" could have been a lot more creative somehow but the direct approach is possibly better considering.

    More interesting is that the ring might actually have a sensor in it which means the joy cons can connect to extensions.
    I guess thats old news but I'd hope to see some more controls connected like that.

    Ngl, this looks awesome. They seriously think of everything. You can use the joycon to detect your heart rate, which means they planned this long before the Switch was released. There's even a mode for playing "silently" so you don't make too much noise while running in place. I'm extremely impressed right now.

    all of out of everything, that's what I find funny.
    Nintendo's Variation is something that I find enjoyable, from wii remotes, to Joycons, carboard boxes, and scales.

    i dont think switch lite support tabletop even, its pure handheld only mode, no tabletop modes are playable since it doesnt even have a kickstand.

    Can't wait for next Mario Party game that supports this hoop for the mini-games! No more button mashing.

    Settle down there, trigger boy. Gay can have multiple meanings (happy, weird, and of course... homosexual). The context in my use of the word is "weird".

    They look like they're trying so hard not to laugh. Guy almost loses it at 1:39.
    At least it makes their smiles more genuine.

    As a guy who tried to go to the gym (I'm paying a subscription since January, only went 3 or 4 times) and loves RPG, but lacks time and mostly motivation, I must say I'm quite attracted by the concept

    Correct me if I'm wrong, it's been a little bit since I saw the video, but the game looks linear as hell. It uses a menu to select levels, so there's no exploring to get from place to place. Most of the "overworld" content looks like a straight path from Point A to Point B, with enemies that ambush you along the way. I'm not demanding Breath of the Wild open-world exploration, but a bit of wandering off the beaten path would be nice. It wouldn't even be too difficult to do, just walk in place like you already are, and turn left/right by moving the hoop in the same direction. (Not like a steering wheel, but by twisting your upper body so you're getting more body movement in.) Level design similar to how something like Paper Mario would be good enough as far as exploration, since you were constantly exploring around for things while on a generally-linear path.

    The battles themselves, while not a bad idea, are a bit weird in that you're flat-out doing exercises for your attacks. Not exercises made to look like an actual attack, or Last Airbender style spell invocations, but enemies just mysteriously take damage when you do exercises. I know it's probably a petty complaint, but a bit more window-dressing on the movements and attacks to make it feel more like you're using some sort of mystical weapon to fend off monsters rather than just doing crunches in their general direction would be nice.

    You guys remember all of the complaints with Final Fantasy XIII, right? It was as linear as a game could get with no sidepaths or exploration. You were forced into every single encounter because there was no way to sneak around them. There was no NPC interaction of any kind, and you were always too broke to afford anything unless you backtracked and respawned the same encounters along that stretch of hallway for hours. (Never was a fan of the battle reward system. I'd rather it be for optional additional goodies instead of your base battle rewards) I'm going to predict that this game is going to be the same exact thing with all of the same faults, but with a fitness-themed layer on top.

    In your basement Dick Size: 5 meters.
    I think the soundtrack is gonna be made by the same people who made Miitopia's. Go to the battle part and listen closely and you'll hear a robotic voice, the same one in Miitopia. I love the Miitopia soundtrack so hopefully this has a really good soundtrack as well!

    What a load of garbage, I also find the people in these videos to be super cringy.

    Give it a few years and everyone will look back on Cock Ring Fit and think it was a big piece of trash.

    That's what I was worried about. If it turns out that I really need the special accessories, then that could turn me away from a potential opportunity to get more exercise outside of my daily walking.
