Gender Politics and Zombies

[Computer Gaming]

If you're in the habit of browsing for such things, you may have seen the statistics showing that in my age bracket there are more female gamers than male gamers. That's probably because they're more hardcore and desensitised to graphic violence, what with all the horror movies they're watching.

I guess this makes Silent Hill a "chick game". The movie's out this week in Australia; I plan to get in touch with my feminine side Tuesday-ish - anyone feel like joining me?

[EDIT: BTW I'm in Sydney from this afternoon (Friday) through to Sunday evening and will probably be AFK and otherwise out of touch. The Archibald Prize exhibition will be viewed; shopping will occur. It's entirely possible I will leave Sydney a devastated monkey-infested wasteland where the dregs of humanity prowl amongst the ruins. It's also entirely possible that if I do no one will notice. See you all Monday!]
