This is volume two of Eludamos, the international online journal “for computer game culture.” True, its cover isn’t very sexy–but its insides might be. As Heroine Sheik reader Tim Sell kindly points out, it’s filled with gender and game-y goodness. Some promising articles include:
-“Real Boys Carry Girly Epics: Normalizing Gender Bending in Online Games,” by Esther MacCallum-Stewart
-“The Impact of Nintendo’s ‘For Men’ Advertising Campaign on a Potential Female Market,” by Gareth Schlott and Siobhan Thomas
-“Theorizing Gender and Digital Gameplay: Oversights, Accidents, and Surprises,” by Jennifer Jenson and Suzanne de Castell
That last one sounds a little wishy-washy/loosey-goosey, but heck, it’s academia!
