-Because the game’s blog gods hear our prayers, we’ve been blessed with this write-up of New York City in video games over the years. Remember how we were talking about GTA IV hitting a little too close to home? Well, apparently home has been hit an awful lot. As for any sort of NYC in games analysis, the write-up may be lacking, but check back soon for some Heroine Sheik-style picking apart.

-Lesbian Gamers has coverage up about We Cheer, a new kind of girl game–specifically the kind where Bratz-loving children flail their Wii-motes in an attempt to look like super-deformed cheerleaders. I’d like to say something convstructive about the Wii and gender, but all I can think about is But I’m a Cheerleader.

-In the cool new games department, The Guardian Gamesblog directs our attention to the perfectly adorable, perfectly macabre World of Goo, an indy physics game that would make Johan Vasquez proud. Must… play…

Happy Weekend!

    I know, I love that movie. It gave me such a new-found respect for Ru Paul :).
