    I have yet to play the new Tomb Raider, but I found your argument about what makes a positive female protagonist interesting, and it made me want to pick up the game. The last female protagonist that I felt was competent and not a bro skin appeared in Suikoden III, but that was released in 2002, so it has been a while. Transistor, by Supergiant looks to be a promising addition to strong, positive female protagonists, and I am super excited. Do you ladies know of any upcoming independent or big release games with female protagonists? By the way I love your podcast. :)

      Roxanne, thanks for the comment. We love doing the podcast! I am anxious for Transistor as well. Supergiant has some real talent and I am anxious to see what they do with a female protagonist and what they make us question in the end. Take a look at my post about voice and Transistor if you haven’t already and let me know what you think :-)
