A lot has been written about Wonder Woman, comics, and feminism in light of an interview with David and Meredith Finch, the new creative team taking over the comic bearing the title of the same name. Articles such as, “Wonder Woman’s feminism matters. So why would the comic industry reject it?” and “The F-Word: Wonder Woman’s Feminism Shouldn’t Be Covered Up” have been popping up all week. As they should! It’s kind of ridiculous this discussion needs to be had, not about Wonder Woman, but about society and its view of feminism. Why? The perceptions of feminism by some, and this applies to men and women, is exactly why these conversations keep cropping up.
Bioware released Mass Effect 2 this week for the PS3. Now, there are a few minor technical differences between the 360 and PS3 version, but one difference is blaring. There is currently no way to carry over your save game from ME1 to ME2 on the PS3 because ME1 does not exist on the PS3. The folks at Bioware decided to attach an interactive motion comic to copies of ME2 PS3 in order to help players customize their experience. Does Kaiden live? Do you save Wrex or plug him? Who do you romance?
Check out this comic, it’s very well done.
[Editors Note: For those that have a subscription to Playstation Plus, you can currently download the full Mass Effect 2 game and play 60 min for free. Enough time to enjoy the comic in full interactive HD glory!]
