Halo: Reach- equal rights

While perusing the weekly update from Bungie Studios I was surprised to see what I honestly never expected to. For the first time ever in a Halo game, you are able to make your character female. In Halo 3 you were able to set your voice to female if you wanted to and your noises […]

One of the biggest changes I’ve noticed about my play habits since introducing Gamer Girlfriend to gamine on the Xbox is that I now view games through a very different lens than I did previously.  As I look at new and upcoming games I find myself now rating them on whether or not they could be a […]

During a trip to visit Gamer Girlfriend, she and I had the chance to play through Sherlock Holmes Vs Jack The Ripper on Xbox 360. At first glance, this game seems utterly terrible.

Gamer Girlfriend: Wings Pending Testing

I’ve always felt the gaming bug, somewhere behind my eyes. Back in the mists of time I had a Spectrum 48k and dutifully wandered left and right shooting at flying toilets, and a little later I spent hours perfecting my Sonic Spin and named my pet fish after the dragons in Bubble Bobble.

The Girlfriend Gamer- “Chicken Kicker”

Chickens are awfully fun to kick, at least in video games. During the very first moments of playing Fable II with my gf, I got to experience her horrified gasp as I punted a chicken over a fence and did a touchdown dance on the couch next to her. This is one of those defining […]
