• Gamer Girlfriend: My Boyfriend, The Pirate King

    Last night was an interesting evening. My boyfriend headed out to a videogame networking event around 7:00, and I had the apartment all to myself for a couple of hours. I made good use of the first hour by cleaning up the place and doing the dishes, but by 8:00, I had pretty much caved and was completely engrossed in my latest obsession, Kingdom Hearts. I know that anyone who reads this column is probably already nodding his or her head in recognition, but really, the fact that I’m even playing this game is a huge deal for me. Generally, I am loathe to venture into RPG territory, Disney characters notwithstanding. I don’t really do those kinds of action/adventure games. They kind of make me nervous.
