    Review: The Walking Dead (Episode 1: A New Day)

    Rating: M (for Mature) Genre: Action, Adventure, RPG Publisher: Telltale Games Developer:  Telltale Games Release Date: April 25th, 2012 BUY The Walking Dead.  If you’ve read the Graphic Novels or watched the television show, I’m sure you have a pretty good idea what you might be in for.  Even still, the name gives a lot away.  Zombies. This is a game about zombies.  But what you might not know that those of us more familiar with the comic or the show are familiar with already, is that it’s also a game about choices.  Hard choices.  These are the quick on your feet, nail-biting, choose it or lose it sort of moments that kind of define the zombie genre and that The Walking Dead is already known for. (That and if anyone ever asks where Carl is? He’s not in the house.  Most especially if he’s been told to stay there.)

    Intel provides a look at who you are online

    Intel has created a campaign called “What about me”. By connecting your online social presence , (Twitter, Facebook and Youtube), Intel’s machine gives you a look at who you are online. Remember a couple days ago when we talked about people that lie about who they are online? This provides insight, but unfortunately only for the individual. I am unable to look up my friends (online or irl) and see what their profile looks like. It drilled down what I talk about online in percentages by topic. According to my wheel you would think I’m not online all that much (the percentages aren’t that high). Also it states that I spend more time talking about tv than gaming. Which is really weird. After that it breaks down your most popular tweets, posts and pics. There is also a look at your connections. It really feels like the Intel program choose

    The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Graphic Novel Due in November

    DC will be releasing a graphic novel based on the popular Steig Larsson novel The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo in November of this year. The book will be written by Denise Mina, a Scottish author who has written multiple novels, a couple of plays, and contributed to the Hellblazer comic series in addition to journalism and academic writing. Frankly, I am glad to have seen this news if only for the introduction to Mina; I am not sure how I missed her work before this. She writes the kind of modern British mysteries I have been getting into lately, a modern, more disturbing extension of the Agatha Christies I grew up loving. The entire project is international–the artists, Leonardo Manco and Andrea Mutti, are from Argentina and Italy, respectively. Manco has worked as a regular artist for the Hellblazer comic series, including the stories written by Mina, and he has also

    Spartacus Boot Camp is a place we all want to be

    I’m not sure how newsworthy this is, but since it’s Friday, I figure we can all use a picture of “hawt” dude working out. Plus this post goes to a GamingAngels editor that every podcast mentions battle panties. The Spartacus team is working out hard for the new season. They take one month to go through Gladiator training which includes exercises used by the military. “Meticulous choreographing is necessary to ensure the safety of the actors performing the stunts,” says stunt coordinator Allan Poppleton, who has overseen each of the “Spartacus” boot camps. “For four weeks, we work the cast to the point of exhaustion, combining cross training elements- everything from cardio, basic gymnastics, foot and movement work, unarmed combat, body awareness, reactions, weaponry, and functional cross fit circuits.” “Spartacus Boot Camps are famous now for pushing you to your absolute limits,” says star Liam McIntyre. “This year they found

    Consumers want games with Physical Activity

    While some of us gamers may groan and moan when we have to “move” to play a game, a new survey shows that people want a physical component to their games. The survey was conducted by UnitedHealth Group and showed that consumers want games that complement traditional exercise by making them be physical. Of the 1,015 adults surveyed, 75% of them want to get physical in their games. Mostly because they believe it can complement their traditional exercise. Perhaps a sign that more and more people would work out in the convenience of their own home. More than half of those surveyed said that active video games would encourage them to be active and get their butts off the couch. While 60% of those with kids said that they want games to encourage their kids to get up and be physical. “As a physician, I believe people of all ages

    One in five people post false information on social media sites

    Social Networks are commonplace now. New networks show up all the time, companies are created to measure your influence online and all generations are sharing online in a variety of ways. But did you ever wonder if the person you are following is real? Or if what they are tweeting about is accurate? According to a recent report showcased on Reuters, one in five people in the study outright lied in their social media profile. What’s even more interesting is that while people are “liking” posts, or commenting, 90% of those surveyed believe people are “oversharing”. That’s right, not everyone cares about the angry face your baby made, or the tacos that you ate today. If you think about it, many of us share things online that we may never say to someone else in person. For example, on my private blog I tend to write about various things I’m
