For those who don’t know every year all the video game companies gather at E3 to showcase the games they’ve been working on and tease what is coming out in the following years. I’ve been watching this live for the past 5 years or so regardless of the fact its in America and therefor ruins my sleeping pattern for the time its airing.

Now I actually missed 2 and a half shows so far this year due to work so I’ll have another post on those games once I play catch up. I’m fairly sure this post is long enough that they won’t be missed. I only plan to talk about the video games that caught my eye as I want to focus on the positives and use this as a point of reference of what I’d like to buy when they’re released.

Steam Wishlist Clean Up (19)

steamwish
When the Steam Summer Sales were almost starting Tecsie decided to clean up their Steam wishlist a little bit by writing a Steam Wishlist Clean Up post which was inspired by Lia’s Down the TBR Hole book blogger meme.

I really liked this idea and asked Tecsie if I could take part too so here I am. I finished my original list but I’ve picked it back up now that its grown a little.

Sit back, enjoy, and browse some video games with me.

I really liked this idea and asked Tecsie if I could take part too so here I am. Though with a slight difference, Tecsie managed to go through a lot more of her wishlist in one go. I already know that will not be the case for me. So you’ll likely see a few of these.

Sit back, enjoy, and browse some video games with me.

Stop Friggin’ Fridging

stop friggin fridginWomen In Refrigerators is a website created in 1999 by known comic book writer Gail Simone. She got the name from a Green Lantern comic in which a love interest, Alexandra Dewitt, was killed and stuffed in a fridge for the simple purpose of motivating the male lead, Green Lantern. She and her friends were noticing a pattern: the sheer amount of women in fiction who are raped, maimed, or murdered for the sake of a man’s character development or story. Originally the term referred to comic book storylines only, but in the two decades since, the term – most commonly known as “fridging” – has been expanded to refer to any medium. It appears most egregiously, in my opinion, in video games, but can be found in any medium. Here is, for example, a supercut of fridging in movies.

(Please note that TV Tropes include any character who suffers to motivate another character; in its original form, and in the way most people use it, it refers specifically to female characters killed for the sake of male characters development. When it’s men, it is mostly often more accurately referred to as “dead men defrosting”. Feminist Frequency has an excellent video about this entire subject.) Continue reading “Stop Friggin’ Fridging”
