She’s British. He’s American. They’re in love. Just add video games. The concept for ‘Girlfriend VS.’ came to life in early 2014 when this cross cultural couple decided to take it to the next level. That’s right… a YouTube channel. Now that’s a serious commitment! Leila Birch aka Girlfriend plays (or attempts to play) video games for the first time ever while Curtiss Frisle aka Boyfriend instructs (or attempts to instruct) her from the sidelines. More often than not, hilarity ensues. Leila might play any game on any system from any generation. Sometimes they might even have a special guest or two to help her out! It’s a review/let’s play hybrid and fun for everyone.
Leila and Curtiss are based in Los Angeles and are both very active in the entertainment industry. You may have even heard Leila’s voice in such video games as Dead Space 2, inFAMOUS: Second Son, Dead Island: Riptide or as The WABAC Machine in the DreamWorks animated feature ‘Mr. Peabody & Sherman’.
Curtiss is also an avid collector of Super Nintendo, Game Boy, and Nintendo Power. Some of his favorite games include: Megaman X, Resident Evil 2, TMNT IV: Turtles In Time, Darkwing Duck and Metal Slug. Leila’s favorite game is “I don’t know yet.”
