Game Girls

At the Philippine Internet anniversary party, World Cybergames Philippine Team Captain Tjader Regis proposed that, even when a game is specifically targeted at a female audience, boys eager to impress girls will join them.

Last weekend, I finished Final Fantasy X-2, a role-playing game featuring three feisty heroines. Yup, you read that right -- all the playable characters of this hack-and-slash technomedieval fantasy are female. The secret ending even plays like a scene from a soap opera.

Today, I came across an article featuring an all-Filipina massively multiplayer online game club, the Clan of the Shadowmaidens.

Girls just wanna have fun -- and now, they're having it digitally.
