Checkpoint Intimates: The Queer Characters Conversation

Posted on October 13, 2017

Listen to the show!

Checkpoint Intimates is a weekly podcast where two members of the team go one-on-one on a topic that they both feel strongly about, talking in a more deeper and, yes, intimate context. This week on the show, Archer and Sav discuss their favourite queer characters in video games. They talk about their favourite queer characters in games, how they were featured, what we loved about them and how they impacted us. As well, they discuss what could have been better and the how the representation could be improved in future titles. What are your favourite queer characters in video games? Were they portrayed in a way that was different and subtle, or was it the total opposite of that?

Your hosts:
