  1. Why You Should Love Mass Effect‘s Dr. Chakwas

    Get a glass of Serrice Ice Brandy ready.

    The Mass Effect universe is full of incredible women. Tali, Liara, Jack, Miranda, Samara, Ashley, Aria, Kasumi, Nyreen… the list of motivated, intelligent ass-kickers goes on and on. And, of course, FemShep herself. I could talk about the women of Mass Effect until the next Reaper invasion begins, but today I want to focus on one particularly fantastic character whom I feel doesn't often get the due she deserves: Chief Medical Officer Dr. Karin Chakwas.

    We may have been disappointed that speculation about a female protagonist/playable character in the next main-series Zelda game turned out to be wrong, but Hyrule Warriors is really picking up the slack in that department with more women than you can shake a deku stick at. The latest Japanese character trailer for the game once again begs the question, "Does she just let Link save her to give his self-esteem a boost?"

  6. We All Benefit From Better Representation

    C'mon, people, it's not rocket science.

    It's 2014, and I keep asking myself: Why aren't we farther than this? I don't just mean the lack of space colonization, sarcastic robots, and hoverboards that films promised me would be here by now. I mean representation in pop culture and storytelling.

    Saturday I attended a panel at Special Edition: NYC, and from what I gathered it was one of the only panels that day that was even nearing maximum capacity. The Carol Corps, various members of the Young Avengers team, and plenty more in addition to myself waited patiently in the ever-growing line for this event.

    Review: Syfy's ISA

    When we were approached with the possibility of reviewing ISA, a movie collaboration between the Syfy, Chiller TV, and Telemundo, we jumped at the possibility. A cyberpunk movie set in Los Angeles' most Hispanic neighborhoods with a super-intelligent Latina lead? Absolutely up our alley.
