Sunday Loot: Top Tweets From This Week + Bonus

Happy Sunday, friends! This week, Nik joined our team with her summer gaming list of recommendations for all those rainy days and sweltering heat. Then Sheva arrived, guns blazing, ready to take on masculine fragility in games and how it’s limiting the medium significantly. After, Anastasia praised Rebel in Nuclear Throne, a character with strong similarities to Samus Aran for her empowering narrative. Ashe celebrated #ThrowbackThursday reminiscing about Spyro the Dragon and singing the praises of its whimsical art design. Lindsay curated a resource masterpost of deals and discounts for anyone looking to game on a budget. Kayla finished out the week with her take on alien gender roles in most sci-fi games with a few suggestions on how to creatively avoid the sexy species trope (we’re looking at you, asari).

And now for your weekly digest on all things video games neatly packaged in 140 characters! Every Sunday, we’re serving up our favorite Twitter blasts exemplifying the fight for diversity in gaming.
