    Tomb Raider #1 Comic Review

    Dark Horse comics has been responsible for several amazing comic series based on video games, and on February 26th, they will introduce another such series, Tomb Raider. Written than none other than the venerable Gail Simone, Tomb Raider appears to be as wonderfully executed as the Tomb Raider video game reboot early last year. The first issue of Tomb Raider takes place not long after the video game ends, with what’s left of Lara’s crew trying to live their lives post the trauma at Yamatai. Lara is struggling with nightmares, and her best friend Sam violently protests that she’s not traumatized after that experience, nevermind the fact she suddenly sleepwalks. As Lara torments herself that she is the one responsible for everything that happened at Yamatai, she learns that the horrors they experienced on the island are not over. And really, what fun would it be if they were over?

    Confessions of a Gadget Junkie: Fitbit Force Recall

    I absolutely love my Fitbit Force. And I’m really sad I’m going to have to send it back. On February 20th, the CEO of Fitbit posted a public letter alerting all Force owners that a small percentage of users have developed an allergic reaction to the Force, either in the nickel from the device itself or from the adhesives in the band. It manifests as a small rash on the arm/wrist, and it’s been diagnosed as allergic contact dermatitis. As such, Fitbit is hosting a voluntary recall for a complete refund on the Force. As soon as I got the news, my heart sank. Now I know what was causing that rash on my wrist. The rash only appeared a couple of weeks ago, and since I’ve had the Force since December, I never correlated the two. I assumed it sprung from sweat as I was sleeping, as it suddenly

    Titanfall Art Book Revew

    There has been just a wee bit of hype as of late for Respawn’s Titanfall, the online multiplayer shooter that features lots and lots of mechs. The game won’t release for a few more weeks, but you can revel in the beauty of the game now with Titan Books’ The Art of Titanfall art book. For 191 jaw-dropping pages, fans of Titanfall can drool over the incredible artwork that goes behind the game and learn a bit about the game’s history. The art in an art book is only half of what makes a video game art book so fantastic; the other half does come from the writing, as insane as that might sound. The Art of Titanfall does more than give the reader pretty pictures to look at; it also tells the story of how Titanfall came to be. Several of the game’s artists and animators pitched into describe

    Confessions of a Gadget Junkie: Fitbit Force

    Considering I’ve been into walking half marathons for the last couple of years, it’s honestly amazing I’ve held out from getting a Fitbit at all. But then the Fitbit Force was announced, and I was instantly intrigued by its slick design and its many features. I preordered one, and it’s only off my wrist when I shower or when I charge it. And I admit I have become downright obsessed with checking my stats throughout the day. The default goal for Fitbit is to walk 10,000 steps a day, which sounds super easy, but it’s really 4-5 miles. As much as you think you walk throughout the day, it’s amazing to realize how far even 1,000 steps are. I had to lower my goal to 5,000 steps a day since I work from home and I have a five-month old baby, as having a baby pretty much means plenty of

    Thank you Ubisoft for sponsoring this post. To learn more about Just Dance 2014, visit the Just Dance Facebook Page! What I loved: The track list is full of hits!

Mostly because I believe it’s one of the best workouts you can do in the privacy of your own home. You can groove like you’re Beyonce without anyone else staring at you. Dancing not only lifts your soul, but while you are having a great time, you are burning serious calories!

    Xbox One launch date is here!

    How many of you are going to midnight launch events to pick up your Xbox One? My Xbox One seems to be stuck in UPS land but hopefully I will get mine soon! Launches are always so exciting, but they definitely change when you have a baby. There is no way I can stay up until midnight anymore. I’m asleep on the couch by 10pm most nights. Sadly this means that I will not get to start to use my Xbox One until after work the next day. How do you handle launch dates with your baby? Do you bring him/her to the event? Another interesting discussion my husband and I have been having around the Xbox One launch is where to put it! At this point we are out of HDMI slots so that means it will probably displace the Xbox 360. We’re still in the middle of playing
