I started Ring Fit Adventure and it definitely is a legit workout. I did the first three levels which was about 15 minutes of work and was basically dead at the end. I ride my Peloton 3-4 times a week so my cardio fitness is pretty solid, but RFA gets into more body weight "lifting" exercises. Should get better as I open up additional exercises. The World 1 boss fight was long enough that I had to repeat exercises, and that calls in a big fatigue factor on the more difficult ones.
I've been wondering about this, as most people I've heard who use it either don't do a lot of exercise or what they do is more cardio than anything. Definitely really want to pick it up for off days (though feel like if it's a cartridge I'll be bummed having to switch it out with Pokemon, which I'm probably getting physical) so I can get quick ones in, but cardio is by far what I don't do a lot of, so I'm not sure I'll get as much out of it if it's just slight resistance based body weight exercises when I've been pretty focused on progressive overload for the past year.
Been really liking Outer Worlds as well, but I'm just getting to the point where it pretty much blocks me from doing anything else until I go see this guy holed up somewhere on Monarch, so maybe I haven't gotten to the point where choices come back to me, hopefully they hit. The two things I've found with the game, and I think this does kind of go along with the generic aspects you're talking about, Sam, are that factions don't really seem to rub up against each other, at least not early, aside from missions where you literally have to kill other things if your stats aren't high enough to hack or whatever (though hopefully/maybe this changes, whereas in New Vegas it felt like those tensions surfaced earlier and were a bit higher), and then there's the fact that I put SO MANY hours in to those PS3/360 era Fallout games I kind of feel like, even though it's all new and I'm loving the writing/playing/characters (Team Felix), it does feel like going through the motions.
But I like the motions, and want to play a dumb character. Tbh I maxed my intelligence to see what that end of the scale was, and it seems useless. Next run I'm doing a corporate shill who is as dumb as a rock but has Perception maxed out because that seems to be the real dialogue player's option. At least it's where I'm hitting the most walls.
