The Shape Up Xbox One Challenge: Part One

Ubisoft‘s Shape Up is a new fitness game for Xbox One that promises to take the “work” out of workouts (it says here). It uses the Kinect motion-sensor to accurately track your movements as you jump, squat and flail your way through assorted exercise challenges. Over the next four weeks, Kotaku’s Mark Serrels and Lifehacker’s Chris Jager will be taking on the game and each other in a bid to get fighting fit for summer.

The Folks Behind Halo Say They're Fixing Matchmaking Today

As has become something of a tradition in the world of video games, Halo: The Master Chief Collection launched with some serious problems — after it came out last week, players struggled with matchmaking and online play in the collection of Halo ports ad remakes. Today, hopefully, things will get at least a little better.
