So bored of all this whining and taking offense to everything in the world. Why dont you just start whining about childrens fairy tale's and any other piece of media out there and be done.

There are plenty of powerful female videogame characters nowadays, but i bet she will whine how they look sexy and not wear a lumberjack shirt or show a tiny bit of skin.

The OOT commercial was embarrasing. To me it seems like Nintendo uses the damsel in distress the most, i can hardly remember a game this gen that had the damsel in distress.

"Why dont you just start whining about childrens fairy tale's and any other piece of media out there and be done."

Videogames and nitpicking the hell out of them are IN right now (along with this whole feminism and nitpicking any sort of artistic medium to throw sh*t at to prove your self worth thing). But what makes me cringe the most is, and will always be, seeing how she wanted 6k dollars but ended up with 160k instead, thanks to the naive whiteknights who supported her to death.

The even sadder thing is, she never needed any sort of money to make a video like this. She was making videos with decent technical quality (but shallow in content and actual depth) long before she made a kickstarter. Yet people still fell in for her BS victim act. It's just pathetic to say the least. But it also shows how some people are ready to donate their hard earned cash to prove that they care about something, even if it means they'll end up getting scammed.

And lastly, I love how both ratings and comments section are completely disabled... But I'm sure she'll turn the comments on again when she's in need of money, so that more whiteknights can donate to her dumb cause after reading a couple of comments with direct insults.

I think the saddest thing is that she's going to accomplish nothing with this.

I say this not only because she's some nobody with a tired issue, but because this is only a problem if you make it out to be one. There are plenty of examples of strong women in games, some of which have absolutely no sex appeal whats so ever. A good example of this would be Agent 45 from Socom 4, which was given a number of stealth missions for you to accomplish.

The other problem is that the people who complain about overly sexy women, usually overlook the male characters that also fit this profile. When you think about it objectively, we only tend to see / hear more about Women because of the largely male demographic.

Either or, I'll be interested to see what she comes up with, though I doubt she can maintain these videos for too long. After a certain point you're beating a dead horse, which isn't hard to do with such a silly topic.

This took way too long and was way too expensive for what it is.
