Hannah, what is your opinion on the 6th Tomb raider, Angel of Darkness? Do you prefer to not acknowledge it's existence like some people because they think it's so bad, or do you think it is actually quite a decent game even with the amount the developers cut out?
We don’t talk about it. Lara don’t need no man, especially with those controls.
Hey Hannah, I hope you don't mind me just asking you this randomly and so early, but will you be playing a full Alien: Isolation playthrough (as you've already stated) or just a little bit, and will you have the courage to do it alone, or are you going to get Kim (or possibly Lewis, seeing as we have yet to see him petrified, and I'm sure many want to) and chain her to a chair? ]:)>
because women are payed less than men in approximately 99% of professions
because chris brown can still have a career after assaulting rihanna but miley cyrus takes her clothes off and there’s a huge scandal
because of this:
because currently it is estimated ten million more girls are out of education than boys (x)
because we’re expected to be mature but hairless like a child, in control but not bossy, sexy but not slutty and definitely not a prude, intelligent but not opinionated, independent but reliant on men, natural but look like the girl in the magazine etc etc
because being called a girl, a pussy or a bitch is an insult
because when i told my mum i refused to get anything less than a’s in my exams she told me it wasn’t ladylike to be so cocky
because my brother and 90% of my male friends think girls who wear revealing clothing are asking for rape
because every person who identifies as female should be allowed to choose if they want to get married, have kids, have a career, go to uni etc etc without expectations
because tampons and sanitary pads are stupidly expensive
because some people reading this will have flinched at the fact i just said ‘tampon’
because there are men out there whose job it is to make young girls feel like absolute shit about themselves just so they can sell the next best beauty product
because female masturbation isn’t considered normal whilst men can talk about their own penises for hours on end
because feminists are still seen as crazy lesbians who dont shave and some still feel like they have to defend themselves by claiming theyre not any of those things when in fact if i want to be a passionate lady who likes other ladies and cant be bothered to shave my legs every twenty minutes then thats my choice and if i want to be someone who wears make up and shaves and goes out partying then thats my choice and if i want to be a combination of the two or anything in between then thats. my. choice.
because i believe anyone who identifies as female is fucking badass and deserves the same rights as every privileged stuck up old white man sitting around and making laws about our bodies
If you don't mind me asking, what's gong to happen to the Yogscast after you and the main personalities grow too old or tired and want to retire from the business? Will there be new people to take on the role of the Yogscast personnel, or will it disband completely, or is there anything else you guys have in mind?
Our oldest member is like 36, we’ve got another 30 years of work before we can retire, so not really something we’re thinking about yet!
Hello Hannah! I was wondering, do you know if anyone in the Yogscast is considering coming to MCM Scotland this year? You've got plenty of fans up here, trust me! ^^
No plans currently.
Since people seem to be asking me a lot about what conventions we’re going to - my answer is 'I don't know'. I don’t speak for everyone and so only know the ones I’m possibly going to, but again I’m waiting on more information and further details before saying more.
We usually go to conventions to work, not play - which means Comicon-style conventions are usually off the list if there’s little to no gaming with actual playable demos or devs to interview.
Whilst Rezzed was predominately a chance to meet fans, you’ll still notice on Sjin and Kim’s videos that we went and privately played Alien: Isolation and filmed/played a few other games that we were interested in covering in the future - I guess you could call it market research.
If there’s not a lot of current newsworthy game stuff at a convention, more likely than not we won’t attend - unless we want to go as fans of the convention for a holiday. However, usually that means taking time out of working and then playing catch-up - which can be more stressful than just not having a break. The hassle of prepping advance content for a week away is just too much of a pain in the bum. Also, the nightmare of travel just ruins the relaxation of a holiday, so I’d rather just stay at home and watch TV! Instead, I have one day off here or there, or do lazy half days.
