It's time to return to the capital

TYLER

Honestly, this “only 17% of game characters are women” statistic sounds really sketchy.

for that much of an imbalance you’d almost certainly have to exclude japanese games entirely.

Also who sat down and counted all these characters from all these games?

smashsurvey:

Now think of how many of those female characters and protagonists are oversexed, created for the male gaze, or put in an inactive damsel role for the plot of the game. Representation matters. A Study last year proved that exposure to tv shows increased the self esteem of young white boys and markedly decreased the confidence and self esteem of girls across the board (and we haven’t even started on the representation of characters of color and the effect it has on children’s self perception). 

Video games are a different media, and even more concerning if representation metrics are changing how our kids think of themselves. Especially knowing that 67% of American Households have video game consoles and 91% of Children play video games regularlyhow do you think the portrayal (and lack of portrayals) of women and girls in these games is affecting little girls – or influencing how little boys view their importance and/or influence over them? 

Comics. Movies. Lit. Pop Culture. The Smash Survey is an upcoming podcast project that will critically explore the representation of race, gender, and queer identity in media and pop culture in a fun and engaging format. 

i really wanna know where these figures come from

thank you whoever you are

i mean thank you shoyu-rai

imagine the mega evolutions

man i want to see the baby evolutions. where the babies at.

Well they never gave them baby forms, and then they’d also have to make up in-training forms too.

Plus i rather liked how digimon went about the whole evolution thing; with the exception of the hero characters in the anime, just about all the digimon in existence were derived from the same handful of monocellular looking fellers.

Hey are they gonna do another show? XcrossXxX Warz kinda slumped it in the second series.

thats what im saying. i want to see the babies and the in training forms. i also kinda liked how they were all featureless blobs but never made the connection between that and the concept of evolution before.

also as far as im concerned digimon the tv show slumped after tamers finished and never unslumped. it just kept slumping and slumping and now its basically some kind of fusiform blob of vaguely organic tissue.

EDIT: its like the end of digimon tamers when they all reverted to their in training forms and said goodbye in that heartfelt tearjerker of an ending episode.

except in this version the show goes all the way back to baby and instead of telling us to be brave and dont worry about it it just says “seeya jackasses” and floats up into the sun.

the digimon world games(3 in particular) much more clearly do the “evolution” bit. In that game there’s a few rookies, and they branch out into virtually every digimon.

It was a marvelous system really; they can learn different trees and you can switch which ones they use depending on the situation.

I dunno i’d say savers was quite a bit worse than everything before or since. The only thing that comes close to being as bad is xros wars part 2.

I’ve heard a whole bunch of mixed opinions about frontier though. What did you think?

Also say what you will about xros wars but it sated my thirst for more kouji wada. Really hope he gets better soon.

People who complain about macklemore intrigue me like???? oh no he’s white?????? he’s an ally ????? ??? how dare he be straight and try to support the lgbt community what a loser

The Social Justice movement is ill-equipped to properly deal with Macklemore. He is in every way the antithesis to the wealthy, ignorant cishet oppressor boogeyman they have constructed, and that scares them. like Many movements based on manipulation, misinformation and fear, they have a narrative for their followers, and Macklemore is a huge disruption to that narrative.

He is worldly, educated, and aware of his privileges, one of which was not wealth from the outset as he is independently produced and did not receive outside funding for his album, one of the many little factoids people like to gloss over when criticizing the man.

Even their most ardent talking point of him “exploiting gay people” for critical acclaim and sales is absurd, since he had no reason to believe the album(which received no huge marketing push) would reach the audience it eventually did.
