Episode 69 - Feminist Frequency's Damsels in Distress Part 2

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!

Episode 15 - A Gamer Family: Saving the Universe

In episode 15, we introduce you to a gaming family: daughters Anna (8), Ellie (12), and Rebekah (14) and parents, Erin and Steve. Listen to the girls talk about their love of board games, Legos, and sword fighting adventures.

We start the show out with our pop culture segment, where we discuss a new Disney movie coming out in November.

Our Twitter and Facebook discussions were about Gamification, in honor of our guest from Episode Eight - Endorphin Dude (Tony Nguyen) finishing his first 100 miler! Listen to hear how gamification does and doesn't work for our listeners. 

We'd love to hear your stories about gaming with your family in the comments. What are your favorite games to play with family? My mom loves to play Five Crowns every time I visit. I'm thinking about taking Rebekah's suggestion of Sleeping Queens with me on my next trip home.
