Re: Kickstarter: Tropes vs. Women in Video Games

No way she has time to play all these games. I look forward to seeing the results of her labor in about 10 years or so.

Re: Kickstarter: Tropes vs. Women in Video Games

If she's doing this project full time, some of the games can be knocked out in a day. She'll probably only do a few hours for each game though.

Re: Kickstarter: Tropes vs. Women in Video Games

She only needs to "play" each one long enough to video-capture the clips she needs from it.

Of course, she could have just rented them...

Re: Kickstarter: Tropes vs. Women in Video Games

According to her site, she's hiring on an assistant.

Quote:
The researching phase has begun! So far we’ve purchased well over 300 games for this project. As of now we can play games from the following systems: SNES, Gamecube, Wii, PS2, PS3, PS Vita, Xbox, Xbox 360, iPad and PC/MAC. We are also looking to acquire a 3DS XL when it becomes available next month. Note that not all of the games being researched for this project are pictured above. All the digital games downloaded via Steam, PSN and XBLM are sadly not nearly as photogenic, but rest assured we are looking at classic titles from throughout the history of gaming.

As a result of the unexpected extra Kickstarter funding I can now commit full-time to Feminist Frequency and to this video series which is truly a dream come true for me! I can now also hire my producer full-time for this project. Plus we are in the process of bringing another writer/researcher on board part-time. So far I’ve chosen to keep my small crew out of the limelight to try and shield them from any potential harassment. When I feel it is safe and appropriate to introduce them I will.

Obviously each video in this series requires a tremendous amount of research, writing and production time so we are planning to release one video per month. We anticipate the launch of our first Tropes vs Women video in late fall or early winter and we’ll be kicking off the series with the Damsel in Distress trope!
So it seems she wont be playing all the games herself in order to release each video in a timely manner.

Re: Kickstarter: Tropes vs. Women in Video Games

Oh and that update she writes that they plan to buy 3ds xl and some games. This really seems fishy now that she could just go out and get a 3DS for cheaper but since she has all this money decides to buy the more expensive system when the regular 3ds would've been fine to play games on.

Yep, you're right. What a bitch!

I think he's implying that her "research" is just an excuse to buy a bunch of games and consoles and have fun. I willl admit that he has a point that she could just get a standard 3DS and it would still serve her purposes. However, perhaps one or more of the games she's going to study are made with the new 3DS in mind. We'll just have to wait and see.

Wouldn't the larger screen look better when she videotapes it?

Let's go ahead and assume her research isn't just an excuse, and now that she has money far in excess of her original requested amount, she can afford to spend $50 more to get the newer version of the 3DS, with the larger screen (which, as someone said, would look better when filmed) and that is reportedly easier to play for long periods.

Don't get me wrong. I wasn't agreeing with mhg83. I can just see how it could have set off his BS detector is all.

Re: Kickstarter: Tropes vs. Women in Video Games

I see that in addition to buying all those games, she also found it in the budget to hit the hair salon.

Kinda playing into real life stereotypes of women there ain't she?

Yup, and that room she's in has a pretty nice paint job. Kind of seems like she could live in a shitty apartment and still do this project.

No way a woman that attractive gives his homeless ass the time of day. And she seems to be quite smart. That's two strikes against poor Esteban.

Someone over at Blu-ray.com suggested that she need not look farther than this MMO:



The switch to female armor sets occurs at 5:35.

Re: Kickstarter: Tropes vs. Women in Video Games

I haven't watched the video yet, but I found this take on the project more than a little bit interesting: http://www.kentaiblog.com/2013/03/th...e-is-nigh.html

Re: Kickstarter: Tropes vs. Women in Video Games

Watched the first video. Her presentation is a little dry (not a surprise if you've seen her other videos), but it's well-researched and she raises some good points.

Obviously, it just came out, but I'd be interested in hearing her take on the new Tomb Raider game.
