developers try shutting down all
complaints with the protest that the “average” gamer won’t try to go for the interesting, unique
cover, but for what is familiar to the point of over use, all because it’s a woman.
Of course, for most instances of sexism in video games, developers usually have a
smooth excuse for explaining away their troublesome portrayal of women. In the most recent
addition of Super Smash Bros, this very problem crops up with what normally should have been
one of the most positive influences of females in video games. Samus Aran, protagonist of the
Metroid Prime series, was a revolutionist in the battle for women’s representation in video
games. Players were shocked when the bounty hunter, beneath the heavy armor that concealed
her identity in earlier games, was revealed to be female in the original release of the series. Since
then she has appeared in many more Metroid Prime games, and has joined several other famous
Nintendo characters as fighters in the brawl game Super Smash Bros. At first, she appeared in
her full armor, but in the most recent game, she appears not only in her armor, but in her skin-
tight Zero-suit as well. This outfit is supposed to be her under armor, which would be
understandable by itself, but the designer also gave her a pair of 4 inch high heeled “rocket
boots” along with the skin tight clothes. Obviously that didn’t go over without comment from
some of the feminist gamers.
To placate the disgruntled fans,…

The house of lords is made out of people who inherited the position or were elected by the monarch and prime minister, while the House of Commons consists of members elected by the people. The house of lords has very small influence in the British government. The most useful action they can perform is to delay a law brought up by the house commons. It is delayed for up to a year,…
The formula is written like this, (a + 1)(b + 1)….(z + 1) where a, b, …., z are considered to be the exponents of prime number. So looking at 225 we know that it has prime numbers 2 and 5 with a exponent of 2 next to the 2. So using our formula we will now use (2 + 1)(1 + 1) = (3)(2) = 6. Now when we’re looking at this there are many different possibilities of factors of 20. When looking at the term 20 of quadratic equation we can see that it could be ±1, ±2, ±4, ±5, ±10, and ±20. So now when we…
