so i just met stephanie beatriz and chatted to her about the ladies on the show bc this is ALL I CARE ABOUT and then i mentioned headcanoning rosa as queer and she was like ‘yeah totally i think rosa goes and gets what she wants and isn’t bothered by things like gender’
the one that was released exclusively for a handheld console that nobody owned and ubisoft barely promoted? and then when it was re-released for hd a year later once again they didn’t bother to tell anyone about it?? yeah it’s weird how no one bought that game
and also: so what? if a game with a male lead flops, devs aren’t going “ok clearly male protags aren’t working, time to write off playable male characters forever.” they look at the myriad of other things that go into making a successful game (story, gameplay, marketing, etc). immediately pointing at ac: liberation as ~proof that female protags can’t sell is just reinforcing this ridiculous double standard and i have no time for it
I want to play this game, Ubisoft.
i would like iron bull to address the issue of women not being warriors under the qun with both male and female inquisitors, or through party banter
and i want him to tell a story about a person he was tracking down, how she outwitted him and out-fought him
and i want it to be implied it’s Isabela, but I don’t want us to know for sure, until the end of the story when he says
'And then she left me stranded there. She even took my pants. I don't know why. She didn't even wear pants.'
