Re: Tropes vs Women Ep.2

It's my understanding that yes, such things as "Would you ever do a Legend of Zelda game with a female Link?" or "Would you ever do another game with Princess Peach as the main playable character?" have been directly asked of Nintendo. And Nintendo's response is invariably not t...

Re: Tropes vs Women Ep.2

Here's the thing, Intent is not the be all and end all. If you accidentally knock someone off a ladder, you don't say "stop trying to treat his broken leg, I didn't mean to break his leg so we should just ignore it". It is possible to not intend to be Sexist, but still end up doing someth...

Dude, seriously, chill. This is the root of the problem of the discussion at hand. People seeing the least bit of conflict and taking it as being cornered.

Re: Tropes vs Women Ep.2

In analogy: in our discussion, the harmful stereotype is the oversexualization and disempowerment of women. The problem is not the sexualization per se; women should be free to be sexual beings, or not, just as men should be, and as Sarkeesian points out, saying that no narrative should include a w...

Re: SPRING!

As much as I think the character should have a "Bro" kind of name.. Part of me also thinks.. If he's literally the human manifestation of "Spring", the legit season.. Then something flowery would be perfect.

Henceforth, Spring Bro is now known as.... Blossom. And that he did.

Re: Tropes vs Women Ep.2

People (not just you, Matt!) get upset and sad when their favorite game is "attacked" in something like Feminist Frequency. I was sad to see Psychonauts included! It's one of my favorite games. But it's not an attack; it's a critique, and it's entirely valid, including for Tim Schafer's E...

WORDS I've really only had experience/knowledge of Devil May Cry series here, so I'll mainly comment on that. DMC has always been about the gameplay. No more, no less. Silly, over-the-top weapons,.

Re: Tropes vs Women Ep.2

Right. That was (and is) a bad thing. Which is why feminists are opposed to it . Don't make the mistake of assuming that just because a scenario happens to fall into women's favour that feminists will support it and ignore the inequality. The idea that women are special delicate flowers that need t...

Re: Strip Search's ultimate power to make Desert Bus 7 aweso

Alternatively, have it so the crew collects some ideas from the chat (which isn't easy, but would make chat feel more part of the goings-on I feel), and then put all of them in a hat/container and have the artists pull one each. That way it's still random. ...Spin-off of Strip Search; Strip Bus... ...
