I wish I had time to write about everything under the sun, but that's not how reality works. Luckily, other people write too:
- To Chew Gum and Slap Asses: Play Like a Girl on Duke Nukem Forever.
- True Female Characters: The Escapist asks, "What makes a great female character?"
- Silicon Sisters: Dennis Scimeca interviews Brenda Bailey Gershkovitch on games by and for women
- Women in Games: Laura Parker writes about women in development for GameSpot.
Meanwhile, I do actually find myself with some time for writing and so I hope the next "Beyond the Girl Gamer" chapter or two will be ready by Monday.
Also, I finished Mass Effect (just the first) last night. I have this to say about Shepard: COSMIC BADASS. That is all. Except it's not. But it is for now.

But you'll never be better than Commander Shepard!
ME2 has better gameplay and generally better interactions with squadmates (I think), but a less personal villain than Saren. I think mineral scanning has been sped up in an update since I played so that'll be less tedious than you might have heard (but still tedious).
