Happy Sunday, friends! This week was chock-full of video game goodness here at FemHype. We started off tackling security questions in Chachi’s continued efforts to keep everyone informed about online safety. Then Michelle B. took us back by infusing queer studies in retro gaming, followed by Katie’s rallying call to attend smaller conventions. For the record, Charlotte wasn’t laughing at Steam’s inclusion of the “Funny” button for reviews. I was, however, laughing (read: screaming) over Telltale’s Game of Thrones and their depiction of women. Finally, Kit bravely shared her story about surviving toxic games culture and how she came to fall in love with games later on despite it.
A very warm welcome to all our new followers, and a sincere thank you to those of you who’ve been on this ride with us since the beginning. We’re in the process of upgrading the site design, so keep an eye out. ✌ As always, the team is always looking for new submissions.
