Media critic/lightning rod for Internet commenters, Anita Sarkeesian, has dropped the next installment in her Kickstarter-funded series, Tropes vs. Women in Video Games.
If unfamiliar, Sarkeesian's series explores the role of female characters in video games and the tropes most often associated with them. This most recently released installment explores the female versions an already exsiting male character.
Sarkeesian dubs this the "Ms. Male Character," and she explores how this trope turns up in titles such as Mass Effect, Ms Pac Man, and Bomber Man.
Previous episodes from Sarkeesian's series explored tropes such as the Damsel in Distress and future installments are poised to touch on topics such as "The Sexy Sidekick," "Positive Female Characters" and "Background Decoration."
