    I really don't think this is a general truth. Consider civil rights in the American South, opposition to apartheid in South Africa, publicly provided healthcare in the US, essentially any message...

    No, it reinforces that the mainstream has never been and will never be a force for social liberation.

    It needs a boilerplate label: THIS PRODUCT HAS NOT BEEN APPROVED BY THE FDA TO DIAGNOSE OR TREAT ANY DISEASE.

    The calls to boycott insufficiently hateful companies will fail because the desire for games will win out. The media 'boycott' is different from the usual failure, though, in that a lot of the...

    Ah, but you forget: He has no side, he represents only transcendent truth unfettered by our petty allegiances.

    I less-than-three these immensely.
    Also this game jam dedicated to "games that contribute to the downfall of video games" and their mascot.

    It isn't strange at all, really. You'd have a headache too if you had to keep tabs on the several or more women saying somewhat uncivil things about the men threatening to rape and murder them. That...

    The answer is no, no they did not.

    In fact, the only good I can see having come out of this heinous trollparade is that now I have read the articles. Being called corrupt by the Gameghazi goons is...

    I know you're right, I'm mostly doing wishful thinking (Funny how often that comes up in this thread!). NuSamus is just the manbabiest product and I want to hold out hope that the Nintendo mothership...

    I think the dearth of non-exploitative female sexuality in games is of a piece with the lack of (conventionally) attractive male characters. Everything is so reflexively designed for a male gaze that...

    And also maybe men's idea of pretty! One of the weirdest responses to the power/sexual fantasy distinction is, "But I don't want to be Beefslab Bicepton! He's hideous!" And I agree and...why are...

    It's a pretty neat trick to blame journalists for failing to police the movement dedicated to destroying them.

    She totally does! And there's a bikini shot as a reward to top it off, because why not ruin a good thing (Then Team Ninja completely trashed everything. You thought playing DoA was harmless but it...

    Or anonymously, since giving in their own names would clearly be an attempt to exploit suicide victims, most of whom are male...Breaking! Feminism objectively supports male suicide! Screencaps coming...

    I forget, is Samus the lone survivor of a crash/attack or did she set out on her own? Or is it different game to game? I legit can't remember. Because the article isn't about surviving female horror...

    Sorry, I definitely didn't mean to imply you hadn't. I just thought you read a more maximalist position into the piece than they were going for. I think they really are saying, "She's a girl! Ergo...

    Clover acknowledges the wishful thinking bit in those very words, and I think the whole piece is careful not to overextend. It's referring specifically to this one character trope, not to the larger...
