Sofie treads dangerous waters as she releases her second game review, officially becoming a female game reviewer. This time, in a extension to Miyazaki March, Sofie reviews the Studio Ghibli and Level 5 collaboration Ni No Kuni. And as an avid RPG gamer, she’s found the game she dreamed of as a child that truly has it all.
Sofie Liv and Jill/Sursum Ursa got invited back to Alcon 2014 to talk about different aspects of women and geek culture, helped along by a prepared slide show and a great audience.
An accompanying video to the Women and Geek culture panel, you probably want to watch that video first though, as this is the place where people got to ask us some questions about that panel.
“It was a stretch to imagine that Nintendo would make a major change like this, so it’s hard to be too disappointed. But still, it raises a good question: Why not make Link female, or at least gender optional? ”

“If Marvel can take a chance on a movie starring a talking raccoon, then certainly they can take a chance on a movie starring a female superhero.”
Sofie finishes her first trilogy of “Who is…?” videos with a more troublesome character, but one who’s also pretty important: the one and only Wonder Woman.
In the second video of Sofie’s “Who is…?” series, she takes a look at Gotham City’s one and only Dark Knight.
“This movie left me wanting more, rather than leaving me frustrated, which is high praise for a film that deliberately screws over its own continuity this much.”
“When it comes to Hollywood making a Godzilla movie, this is about the best possible outcome anyone could have hoped for.”
In the first video of Sofie’s new segment “Who is…?”, she decides to talk about the Man of Tomorrow, and about who he is as a person and a character. What does he stand for? And what is the one “keyword” that sums him up?
