Toria joins us again this week to discuss the second episode in Feminist Frequency’s Tropes vs Women in Video Games series, The Damsel in Distress Part Two. In the second episode in the series, Anita Sarkeesian takes on more modern representations of this long standing plot device. We discuss the uses and abuses of the trope, Sarkeesian’s research methods, and our own feelings about rescuing the damsel.
Rhonda, Toria, and I all share what we’re reading, watching, and playing in our new segment, Geeking Out.
Let us know what you think about the show in the comments.
Until next time, game on!
Regina & Rhonda & Toria
