What is Gaming cardio? Well, it is a phrase I just made up, so let me explain. If you visit our website regularly you might have noticed a few articles about fitness. Like the RPG-style workout series called ‘Level up your fitness’, where we basically ‘gamify’ your workout so you can enjoy it more. But what about video games that have a workout already built in? Why not use those games to entertain ourselves and level up our ‘fitness game’ as well? Genius! Right? So here’s my list of suggestions for video games that I consider to fall under the category of Gaming cardio to help you get the best of both worlds!

I’ve received my Steam Deck a few months ago and I’ve been loving the experience so far! Why!? The variety of games it can play, the smooth controls, the amazing visuals, etc. Since the Steam Deck arrived I have been neglecting my Nintendo Switch. Two handhelds, with some noticeable similarities. That got me thinking. Is the Steam Deck just a replacement for the Nintendo Switch? Or is it something else completely? Let’s find an answer to that question while telling you everything about the Steam Deck!
We all know the gamer stereotype: People who spend all day in front of the computer or console, barely moving a muscle. When they do move, it’s usually to walk to the kitchen and grab some potato chips or a plate of cookies with a soda to wash it down. As a result of this lifestyle, gamers are often incredibly skinny if they are blessed with a quick metabolism or overweight if they aren’t. Did we describe that right? Are gaming and fitness hard to match? Or is there more to be said?
Welcome back to the level up your fitness workout series! We are already in week 2 of our 6-week program and we are very excited you are still with us!

What are the best Pokémon baby names? You might think: ‘Girl, what took you so long to make this list?’ But let’s get real. There are already a lot of baby name lists out there. Some lists are wonderful and some are plain awful. Some names are too much on the nose (We can’t all name our kids Ash. Don’t be ridiculous!). And some are needlessly complicated and over-the-top unique. Believe me, nobody wants to walk around with a name like Zigzagzoon. Furthermore (Hah, fancy!), some names have a negative association (Do not name your baby Slowpoke or Primeape. Please.) So this list required some thought. Here is my version of the best Pokémon baby names. Enjoy!

Curious as I am, be sure to comment and share your favourite multiplayer game below or on our socials!

The Guildwars 2 story takes place in the Asian-inspired Cantha, so I was craving some Chinese food again! With noodles and stir fry being referenced everywhere in the game, I wanted to make Eggplant stir fry again. Just like I did at a cooking class when I was in China. Eggplant stir fry is a Chinese famous dish, usually made with a local Sechuan variant of eggplant, called Yuxiang. While in the game you can buy the eggplants in bulk at Mount Maelstrom, in real life, any eggplants will do. So let’s cook using de Guildwars recipe for eggplant stir fry!
