This week, Game on Girl talks to married gamers, Scott and Kat.
Check out this episode where we discuss the dynamics of gaming as a couple, including gaming with a guild and friends on and offline. Scott and Kat share their experiences playing games like Diablo III, Borderlands, World of Warcraft together and redefine modern love.
We’ve added a couple of new features to the show this week including a section where we share listener feedback on previous episodes and responses to the questions we’ve posed about gaming and game culture on Twitter. This week’s Twitter questions we discuss are “Do you role play in game?” and “Do you prefer to game online with people you know in your physical life or does it not matter to you?” Some pretty awesome comments and discussions are shared on this episode.
We would love to hear from more gamer couples and have you share your experiences gaming with your boyfriend/girlfriend, husband/wife, partner/significant other. Let us know your story on Twitter at @game_on_girl or in the comments below.

Until next time, Game On!
