Hey there, fellow Nintendo fans! Looks like it’s mere 3rd party game fodder for this week, which I think is some sort of unofficial Harry Potter Week in the world. And what better way to celebrate than to indulge in the world of licensed video games?  However, there is one interesting game that is not a third party romp…

UFC Personal Trainer is a fitness game which takes advantages of the motion controls of the Wii and cashes in on the increasing popularity of MMA (Mixed Martial Arts). It is also most likely considered to be like Wii Fit on steroids. It’s also available on Xbox360 and PS3, most likely to work with Kinect and Move. It gives you 70 different types of exercises, an ability to personalize a routine, and even the occasional multiplayer funfest. The game looks to be fun and challenging enough.

Meanwhile,  Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Part 2 shapes up to be like the usual licensed video game in which you play out the most basic plot of the movie, since nobody wants spoilers to be given away. This is also out on all the other consoles imaginable, but no 3DS. This game also supports WiFi and multiplayer, which for any fan of shooter games (in this case, Third Person Shooter), could be a possible draw. Maybe it won’t another Goldeneye but, then again, what is?

Afterzoom actually sounds like a really interesting game worth taking a look at. It is an AR game that takes advantage of the cameras on the DSi (and likely the 3DS as well?)  where you take a look at everyday objects, find organisms, and basically treat them like Pokémon. So basically, you can have your own little biological lamp Phanpy of your own! It also uses a mix of biology and chemistry in its gameplay, so science nerds? Rejoice.
