Rhonda and I made another short episode talking about what it’s like to kill female NPCs or to kill your own teammates (and friends!) in-game. Take a listen and tell us what you think!
Have you ever hesitated before you attacked an NPC?
What were the circumstances?
What kind of character or game mechanic made you hesitate? And why?
Tell us what you think in the comments!
Until next time, Game On!
Regina & Rhonda
Regina is a gamer, writer, teacher, and podcaster living in the Pacific Northwest. She completed her Ph.D. in 2011 from Washington State University in Vancouver and continues to teach there part time. Regina’s research interests focus on women and technology, and her dissertation discusses female gamers and identity in digital role playing games. A lifelong geek and technology enthusiast, Regina recently started a Girls Who Code club in support of their mission to close the gender gap in technology.
To continue the conversations about gender and gaming that Regina started during her research, she started a podcast called Game on Girl. Called the “NPR of game podcasts” by Chris Brown of The Married Gamers, the podcast features women involved in the game industry, and tackles some of the complicated issues in the gaming community. Season 2 began in the spring of 2018 and will premiere new episodes monthly.
