This week, Chris and Kelly from The Married Gamers join Regina and Mark to discuss the new first person shooter, Titanfall. After reading Susan Ardent’s article, “Why TItanfall’s Trailer Made Me Emotional,” we were very interested in the game and its representations of gender. Chris and Kelly share their insight and experiences within the game. Are you playing Titanfall? What are your thoughts about the game and the female soldiers?
Then we WRaP up the show with what we are Watching, Reading, and Playing. Tune in to hear our latest obsessions. Let us know yours in the comments.
International Tabletop Day is April 5th! Regina and Isabela will be at Cloud Cap Games in Portland, OR and Chris and Kelly will be at the Crazy Squirrel in Fresno, CA. Make sure to check out the events at your local game store and join in the festivities!
Until next time, Game On!
Regina and Mark, filling in for Rhonda
Regina is the founder and lead ambassador of The Geek Embassy. Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.
