#726 - Boaring Conversation

Idk y'all I run out of stuff to say on these things. I can only be chaotically hyper so often before I'm just chaotically hypering into the void. (And then the void chaotically hypers into you.) I dunno. Power Rangers Netflix Reunion movie comes out tonight? I'll be watching that. That'll be cool! Then umm.. *flips through notes* Idk that's about it, chief. Guardians of the Galaxy 3 soon? Then Tears of the Kingdom, which will eat up a bunch of time. I hope. Sincerely hope I enjoy that. I'm avoiding all gameplay videos and other youtubers talking about it so I can just experience it.

I don't know, man. I'm just coasting??? Through this experience we call life??? I'm typing this on my lunch break because like??? What else am I supposed to do???? Eat lunch?????????

You think there's more to life so you go do more and then you realize there really isn't more, it's just this, over and over. But hey a little bird just landed by my window and did a little jig before it flew off again and, you know. That's nice I guess.

Errrr, enjoy the comic!! Everything's perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here now, thank you. How are you?

There are a couple female melee fighters in RPGs, but most of those I can think of are weird barbarian women like Ayla in Chrono Trigger or Urbosa in Breath of the Wild. That's why you've gotta give special credit to Tifa from FF7. She's a melee fighter, full stop, and doesn't have any weird tribal connections to be so, she just punches people and nobody bats an eye at it. We need more Tifas in out life.

Special shoutout to literally every Fire Emblem game for making the dodgy swordswoman a mainstay, and especially for Three Houses for giving us Hilda, a woman who wears heavy armor and cuts people down with a big axe while chanting "Hilda! Hilda! Hilda!" She's so good.

RPG World has one too: Reka. Though Plum and Reka were never on the team at the same time (as far as I can recall), so her fridge moment is justified.

Eikre: Well, Diane's original class was close-quarter focused **gets disemboweled**

Earl: Its not that Cherry and Plum are female, but that they are elves.
Larry: That's also why they are thieves.

Syd: Not all the long-distance fighters are girly girls. I am a long distance fighter and am still [flexes] the manliest manly man.
Plum: *cough cough*

Plum showing her typical reaction to sexist horny pigs.

Howard: Meanwhile we have evil ninja lady and I think Eikre's old girlfriend was a melee user. Also Detestai and Reka. And Galgarion.
Jeff: ha ha ha ha, its the dress.
Howard: And Jeff.
Jeff: HEY!

I wanted to add underwater intern girl but she switches between staff and crossbow.

Cherry: Just to clarify, women are dramatically inferior in melee combat. Like 75% less strength and 50% less endurance than their male equivalent
Hero: But that boar...
Cherry: Elven Supremacy b!tch.

That boar looks familiar.

With the red hair and glowing eyes, he definitely has Ganon energy.

I always figured women were self conscious of scars so they go with a fighting style that keeps them out of blade or fist range

Hardcore flashback to "The Boss" from Metal Gear Solid 3 who didn't have a single visible scar despite being a CQC expert. Because she was an expert.
But she did have a non-visible (unless she removes her shirt) scar on her belly from D-Day when she had complications giving birth so she whipped out her knife and performed a cesarean on herself. Have to confirm actual lore vs "Last Days of Foxhound" lore.

The ranged female/melee male can be attributed to 2 main factors: In the 90s, there was a lot of censorship about violence against women in videogames so giving them roles that discourage them from getting hit in combat was encouraged.
The other factor is the complained about, "male, 13-25 target demographic." Women tend to be given skimpy or impractical outfits for combat. Saying their job description includes specifically trying to avoid melee/close combat gives some flimsy justification for why they would even consider wearing such things on a dangerous adventure.

HA HA HA! Your bringing up that 90's rule about "no violence against women" thing reminded me of Poison from Final Fight, a beat-em-up game where they didn't want to say you were beating up a scantily clad sexy lady so they said she was actually a man, meaning they were actually encouraging violence against trans people instead. Hilarious accident back then but soberingly relevant today
