    Trio the Punch: Never Forget Me

    It's an action-platformer and...you should just find a way to play it and knock through a couple levels.

    But at the bundle price, you don't need to get a whole lot out of it for it to be worthwhile. I agree that KoF isn't a good choice for a main game, but it's so pretty and has a fun cast of characters...

    Everybody buy PC fighting games! They're cheap! Besides KoF XIII in the latest Humble Bundle, Skullgirls is on sale for $5 together with the first DLC character. It is, among other things, nearly...

    Yeah, the capsule plot summary of this game reads like a satire of sexist narratives about women. Lots of people have really liked it, so I'm sure there's plenty of good in there, but yikes. I mean,...

    I just learned about the Night Witches, so now I'm bringing them up in every women-in-vidgames conversation because they were totally badass.

    I know RPS is the very most modest, professional, and unselfish of internet magazines, and I respect that; but I'd have no problem with at least a little more trumpeting of the release of Sir, You...

    Does it count if I would only recommend it pseudonymously? Because Skullgirls is a legitimately brilliant, beautiful, lovingly crafted game, but...not something I'd admit to my friends.

    See, "manufactured outrage over non-issues" makes me strongly suspect that discussion isn't really going to be too productive. And frankly, if the middle ground is between the lunatics threatening to...

    No, I mean specifically needing to respond to this article right here right now for any given article. Nobody's being told not to write about gender issues, just that they can't do it under that...

    It's just bizarre that dudes feel they have some right of response whenever gender issues are mentioned. If you feel like the tenor of RPS's gender pieces is hostile to you personally, you're either...

    Has it ever been constructive to engage with trolls? I mean, "Don't feed the trolls" is basic internet survival knowledge. And if you find yourself targeted by John's preemptive answers, then you're...

    Honestly, there's value in people realizing that being sexist jackasses makes them unwelcome in at least some gaming circles. If you're convinced that Tropes vs. Women is an important attack on men...

    This is really the crux of the whole discussion, I think. So while it doesn't prove anything, Skullgirls' relatively strong female fanbase certainly suggests it's doing something right. Don't get me...

    Nah. The (entirely justified) complaint about boob armour is about lazy, silly, tired tropes that show up in tons of games. Skullgirls is one niche game in a niche genre. Also, as Nalano mentions,...

    I assume Nalano meant Alex Ahad, the lead designer, whose portfolio has some pretty weird/risque stuff. Zone, the flash-pornographer, is just a cleanup artist or fill animator with absolutely zero...

    I don't think this is limited to anime, and I don't think it's true of anime in general - for "anime," substitute "genre media aimed at a predominantly male audience" and you're nearer to the mark...
