Real disappointed there’s no female avatar to choose from. =/ That mean there’s no females in the game either?

I hope these help! :)

Thanks!

Anyway I would believe the game would be more marketed to males hence the male characters.

Haha, that’s why I had put it in single quotes, depends on the perspective of course. =) But that’s the excuse of almost every game made and marketed. Usually for these Kongregate promo events, at least whenever I catch them, they’re good about having a female or gender neutral option.

Just gotta love being ignored because people still believe us female gamers/sci-fi fans don’t exist.

The (marginal) irony in all the above is that the original Alien films broke convention by featuring a strong female protagonist. It’s funny how all the game tie-ins (as far as I’m aware?) have ignored this and reverted entirely to stereotype.

On the other hand, would you have really considered changing your avatar if there had been a non-male option?

Haha, that was what my friend and I were discussing, how the original movie franchise was headed by a strong female lead.

And yes, for these quests and such I like to use the avatars as support and fun and show my allegiance as that’s the point is it not? It’s not like when it’s over, I can’t go back to the one I have now. For when they did the Gotham event, I happily had Catwoman for the longest.

The aliens could be female, who knows!

So females are only ‘evil’? But there’s no female marine avatar option.
