This week in Trailer Trash, we’ve received a couple of videogame trailers geared toward girls. Not that there’s anything really wrong with it, but when will developers ever come out with a good girl game? Oh, that’s right - never. Because guns will always be way cooler and more badass than pots and pans, smashing glass is more awesome than raising kids, and splattering blood everywhere is cooler than washing your dog.
Cate West: The Vanishing Files
If the actual game is anything like the trailer, I hope that goddamn lady quits talking while my magnifying glass cursor is out.
Women’s Murder Club: Games of Passion
First, I’m pretty sure there would be some unhappy parents when their little girl refuses to join a book club and exclaims, “I wanna join the Women’s Murder Club instead!” Second, since when did playing mahjong become a method to find clues?
Personal Trainer: Walking
This isn’t exactly just for girls, but most guys who watch this trailer tend to get bored and move on. Did Nintendo just decide that girls love watching graphs scroll through their DS? It’s like keeping track of your menstrual cycle. Plus, how many families are like that? The dad probably hates his life, the mom wants validation for not having a job, and the older daughter thinks she’s fat.
