It'd be interesting if Nintendo picked up on this and decided to give Pauline a chance to shine. -Zero

I think that's awesome. Pauline should be in more games, actually. I loved her on the ol' Saturday Supercade.

That's awesome!

This should go in that tropes vs woman thread... Poor Mario...having to be rescued again.

hmmmm Pauline should at least be in Mario Kart. One thing people never seem to question is if shes from the real world before Mario went to the Mushroom Kingdom or if everything is all inclusive. I guess I like to think that Mario and DK made it to this alternate place and so did she. She'd gotta be retired by now haha

My wife found that last night. Very cool for dad to do that for his daughter.

At least he didn't need to alter the ending I guess!

Really cool project, but ...

*sigh*.... just another in-game instance of women having to fight tooth and nail to show men they deserve love. yet, the man gets to sit on his butt like a king on his throne while the woman does all the work.

when will this industry learn?

And that's why it was a good idea of Sarkeesian to disable comments.

Very cute story. I wish I could play that version! And boy, do I miss being able to play as Peach in Mario...

Also would have been a good idea for her to construct research that generates meaningful outcomes instead of headlines. =\

It did generate a meaningful outcome, it got people talking about something in gaming that no one in gaming was talking about. That's infinitely more important than her actual videos, to me.

But anyway, we have a huge thread about that, so if we want to talk about it, well... we know where to go.

Yea... arguments based on misinformation from a misdiagnosed problem... how meaningful.

I'll stop talking about it now.

Pauline has her place in the Mario vs DK games.

This is cool though. Awesome dad.

@NinSage They aren't misdiagnosed for most people. And they definitely hold real meaning. It's a bit condescending to suggest that people aren't capable of determining this on their own. But yes, other thread.

What if we just keep saying our piece and ending it with "other thread"? =) Only kidding, bud.

That other thread, like most conversations generated by Anita's work, is a minefield though... I'm not going near it. =(

But, we can talk in private anytime someone wants to hear exactly why I've come to those conclusions.

Because that wasn't done to make a little kid happy.

We just need minesweepers. Or, you know, someone else to post about the videos...


What are you talking about? Bombermine is all the rage!

@DeputyVanHalen It made ME happy! That's way more impressive! Kids are easy as fuck to make happy! Throw sugar at them!

I was disappointed that Pauline can't float like Peach.
