Stuff that isn't games.
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.
