If you're wondering what to do on a cold night, while snuggling next to a warm fire ... may we suggest, reading? Of course, in this scenario, all electricity is out and video games are no option for you. So, if that's what it takes for you to pick up a book (we kid!), you might be interested in something with a little video game flavor.
Coming to bookstores on July 28 is Gears of War: Jacinto's Remnant
-- from best-selling sci-fi author Karen Traviss
(of Star Wars
novel fame!).Jacinto's Remnant
begins moments following the end of Gears of War 2
. It's really hard to tell you what the novel is about without spoiling the ending of 2008's Epic
Xbox 360-exclusive, but from what we've seen so far, the book looks to paint a picture of humanity's struggle for survival against a new kind of enemy -- itself. Sounds interesting, so far. Excited?
