  • Gamer Girlfriend: Thoughts for a Rainy Afternoon

    It’s weird how things change. I was recently looking back over the archives of "Gamer Girlfriend," which date back to early 2008, and I was surprised to notice a gradual but distinct progression in the way my column has evolved over the years. Originally, it was about the crazy antics and wacky misadventures of Mike, my own dear “Gamer in Residence,” and the trials and tribulations that came from first dating, and then living with him. After a while, it was about my own tentative forays in the gaming world. “Reflections on Grand Theft Auto IV” was followed with a cute story about how I acquired my pink DS and very first game cartridges (Animal Crossing and Cooking Mama).

  • What the Crap?: Go-Karting

  • Dear Readers: Pride

    You know what makes Mario Kart a good series? There’s only five of them. Mario Kart doesn’t milk its franchise for all it’s worth. Mario Kart doesn’t come out with a new title every year, with virtually no changes aside from a few new characters and maybe a new track. Mario Kart makes its launches meaningful, and each Mario Kart clearly has some effort put into it.
