If you’re interested in the new 3DS strategy game Fire Emblem: Awakening, you’ve probably heard two things about it: First, that if a character dies in battle, they’re gone for good. Second, that characters can fall in love and marry one another.
I like to say that the couple that games together, stays together. I’m not alone in that sentiment, either. I’m sure there are lots of couples who integrate gaming into their day-to-day interactions and manage to get along just fine. But just because I like to say it… well, that doesn’t make the statement true. Unfortunately, I only know this through first-hand experience.

Mass Effect developer Casey Hudson’s announcement less than a day ago that same-sex romances would be given fuller and more explicit articulation in Mass Effect 3 has unsurprisingly ignited a spark among many followers of the franchise.
