It's funny because in the Paper Mario games (the original and the thousand year door) you play as Peach and aren't a passive captive the whole time. In the second game she is pretty essential towards success in the game.

Guess she never played them, or they didn't fit her narrative.

She'd probably love the part of Super Paper Mario in which Peach fights this heavily-stereotypical nerd chameleon who pervs on her.

The Princess was a playable character as far back as SMB2.

She mentions the "non-core" games in the first video around the 9:40 mark, but doesn't consider them to be AS important.

It's been reported that Anna's "assistant" is actually getting the footage from several let's player's on youtube and that they are not actually playing any of the games themselves.

So where exactly did all that money she got for the project go? :smt102

Did it suddenly get warmer in here, as if someone was blowing a tremendous amount of hot air?

What would have earned my respect is if she took the extra money from donations and put it towards women's shelters or charities that work with abused women. Gawker did something similar with the Rob Ford Crack Tape money and I actually respected that move.

Or it doesn't fit the narrative she's trying to tell and she'd like to ignore it...?

I could agree. It's so easy to use and only over sensitive people like this broad get offended.

And the latest video came out.

Wouldn't be wise to view it at work. As far as the merit of the video itself, can't say that I'm absolutely sold on the last few minutes of it.
