Nerds Assemble episode 32: Where’s all the ladies, yo!


This week: Left 4 Dead 2 invading Resident Evil 6, Snake, Liam Neeson references, female protagonists in videogames and more…

Join Emily, Paul, Paul and Peter Cooper as they delve into the week’s news:

The latter half of the show takes us on a journey in discussing why there’s few female only protagonist videogames and issues surrounding gender identification and norms, plus racial representations in games to boot. It’s all pretty heavy stuff.

(The videogame character featured at the top of this post is Alex Roivas, who we mention during our main discussion. She’s the lead female protagonist of Silicon Knights’ 2002 GameCube game: Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem. Hint: you should probably play it sometime.)
