THIS week I was excited to learn that a competition has been launched exclusively for women gamers. Miss Video Game hopes to find an ambassador for women gamers who will assist in the proliferation of females in gaming genres of all types, and help raise awareness of the female gaming audience among game publishers and advertisers.
