Lara Croft of Tomb Raider

If you had any speculations about Tomb Raider possibly having multiplayer options, you can push those suspicions aside.  It's true. Krystal Dynamics Global Director Karl Stewart has announced via Twitter that Tomb Raider will definitely have multiplayer options. The multiplayer options will be broken down into three modes:  (1) Predictable, where characters are pitted against scavengers in fight matches in small maps throughout the game. (2) Rescue, where survivors bring medpacks to certain designated points within a required time frame and (3) Cry for Help, where there is a strong emphasis on discovery and collection.

To bring more challenges to the game, the multiplayer option will have a large array of characters, and diverse weaponry. To fight against enemies, weapons will include a primary firearm or bow, a sidearm, a grenade-like projectile, and a climbing apparatus ax to assist with characters traversing the sometimes mountainous terrain.

Just Dance 4

Did you make any New Year's Resolutions for 2013?  Or did you make a mental note to be active and to exercise more in the new year?  If you did, there are lots of fun video games to help you out.  Who say's that exercising has to be boring.  Move around, safely of course,  playing some of these video games, have fun and burn a few calories -- all at the same time.  

Just Dance 4, by Ubisoft, continues to be popular for all ages, and is in fact rated E for Everyone.  WIth this game, there are no military strategies to ponder about, or zombies to destroy -- just emulate the figures on the screen and move with the music.

Kinect Sports

Video games requiring your physical movement are not only geared toward safe exercise, but you can have fun -- good times as well.  Games that come to mind are Kinect Sports and Kinect Adventures, playable on the Xbox 360.

If you want a more regimented video game exercise routine, you may prefer Zumba Fitness, Wii Fitness, Your Shape: Fitness Evolved  or other games made especially for exercise. Whatever your preference in exercising, there is a video game for you.

As in all things, moderation is key and although it's comfortable to play video games in the comfort of your own home, do not discount the advantage of either taking a brisk walk, running errands or performing other activities that will exercise not only your body, but your mind as well.

Introduction to the Ford v Ferrari Movie Review by Ms. H I was on the fence about naming my movie review “A Race Car, Friendship Movie or Both?” versus “Crisp Realism.” Even though I opted for the former, there is no doubt that the writers and director focused on providing a sense of crisp realism to this movie, which by the way is based on a true story. Not only was the dialogue and scenes pertinent to the movie, but it was the  period-type items that were...

Introduction to Zombieland: Double Tap Movie Review by Ms. H I think we all know that a fair amount of Computer-Generated Imagery (CGI) is used in movies.  Think of those slow motion shots or any movie dealing with monsters, dinosaurs and others, and you expect to see this. However, when I watched Zombieland: Double Tap, I did not expect the large display of notices to display on the movie screen.  In Zombieland: Double Tap movie, you will see different rules and other messages displayed in various type graphics...
