Among all of the prompts listed, I really loved the idea of creating a playlist for character. Of course, I can’t just pick one so I’ll start with my dog’s name sake: Padme Amidala. While she’s got some haters, she’s still one of my favorite Star Wars characters. She was one of the youngest queens of her planet, a fashion icon, and one of the greatest heroes of the galaxy. She is not just Luke and Leia’s mother, but she was also a political bad ass. Without further ado, I present to you, Padme’s mixtape!
What songs would you add to Padme’s mixtape? Let me know in the comments!

The Mental Attic takes on changing male toxicity in video games. With the new God of War released, The Mental Attic digs into games with male protagonists that lack emotions and feelings with examples from modern games like Deus Ex and Shadow Warrior to male protagonists that grow and show emotion like Kratos in God of War.
I saw this tag over at Cateaclysmic and thought it sounded fun! If you want to participate, I highly encourage you to do so! Just leave me a comment with a link to your post and I’ll check out your answers too. Are you ready for mine? Here we go!
What is your must-have tech gadget? Definitely my Fitbit. It’s been helping me reach my fitness goals and keeping me in check. I was super lucky and got it as a gift from my lovely husband at Christmas. Highly recommend!
Which house do you belong to in Hogwarts? Ravenclaw!
Who is your favorite Doctor? Ten of course, though Nine holds a very special place in my heart.
If you could have dinner with any fictional character, who would it be? Teal’c from Stargate SG-1. I tell my husband every episode how much I love his facial expressions (or lack thereof). And he’s undeniably funny without meaning to be!
What is your gaming system of choice? I discussed in this post about how the PlayStation 4 is my favorite gaming system.
If you had a super power, what would it be? The ability to bend time and space like Hiro from Heroes. “Fine. Stay here. Be just like everyone else. I wanna boldly go where no man has gone before.”
What is your favorite fantasy world? Harry Potter. Hands down. I love the books so much and love to get lost in the world JK Rowling made for her characters.
If you could be any fictional race, what would you be? I would love to be an elf. I always gravitate towards that race for any video or board game.
Star Trek or Star Wars? That’s a hard one. Don’t make me choose! How about both plus Stargate?

I don’t get the chance to play video games with friends too often. When I was younger, my brother and I loved fighting games like Soul Caliber and Mortal Kombat. However, I found most 2 player games lacking. It was pretty hard to find an enjoyable two player game that wasn’t a shooter.
A year ago, during a trip to visit my then-fiance/now-husband in Ireland, Alec introduced me to Lego Star Wars. It was pretty fun, and I didn’t have a problem with the game itself. The real fun came later when my husband arrived in the US. He introduced me to Lego Harry Potter.
Initially I thought these games were just for young kids and had zero interest in playing them. That all changed one Saturday night on the couch when we popped in Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4. I loved playing this game. And I loved it even more playing with my husband as it really required some team work for puzzles, but we could both loot individually.
It was an experience to see Hogwarts as well as Diagon Alley and other locations in lego form. My favorite part is definitely being Hermione and using magic. The game makes it fairly simple to use magic, and the puzzles are really fun. Alec and I really have to pick this one back up for another Saturday game night.
