In researching games for my thesis I’m finding a bunch of cool upcoming titles which I hadn’t heard of.  Maybe it’s because I don’t dabble much in gamer discussions, or because most of the feminist bloggers I follow don’t talk much about games, but I never heard of these before!  This is one of thepromising projects I’d like to share that star female leads who aren’t hypersexualized:

BEYOND: Two Souls is a unique psychological action thriller featuring Academy Award(r) nominee, Ellen Page in the lead role. Experience the incredible life of a person who possesses extraordinary powers through a connection with an invisible entity. Watch as your actions and decisions determine her fate and face incredible emotional challenges never before seen in a video game.
