As the countless hours we've poured into Dance Central
and Wii Fit
can attest, we're big fans of gaming activities that also help keep our bodies from atrophying into nothingness
. Firaxis is sympathetic
to our aerobic cause, and is implementing a bit of movement into its latest turn-based strategy title, Civilization 5
: A "Hot Seat" multiplayer mode, which allows two players to take turns ... taking turns
on a single computer.
Just think about how much physical activity this oft-requested gameplay mode will bring to your lengthy Civilization
skirmishes! Hoisting yourself up and standing for minutes at a time, then sitting back down when your friend is done taking their turn? Why, that's practically doing squats, if you think about it. You can look forward to blasting your glutes and delts and stuff
when the feature arrives in the game's next patch, which launches in June or early July.
