New Tropes vs Women series Positive Female Characters debuts


Checkmate, Link!

Everyone’s favorite feminist Anita Sarkeesianis back and this time with a new sub-series of Tropes vs Women in Gaming called Positive Female Characters. In the debut episode Anita takes a look at the main character fromSuperbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, the Scythian.

I only recently played Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP for the first time during flights to and from PAX East and can see why we gave it a perfect score in our review. I actually had no idea the Scythian was female, though I only managed to finish the first two episodes. As far as the video goes, I think we can all agree on this one, right?
