So THAT'S what you need to sell games. All this time I had this crazy notion it involved actual game design. That's why they fired those Infinity Ward guys, why do you need multi-million dollar earning developers when you have strippers and plenty of one dollar bills to give them curtosy of the guys you just fired! (in case the point wasn't clear, i'm done with all activision games)

The statement isn't news. Neither is a powerful corporation bribing influential and easily impressionable people which will market their product.

This is almost turning into a law: The more hyped a game is, the more it tries to mask how much it sucks.

Give that woman my money!
Uhh, what was this about?


Also, lol at the guys who try to act 'above' the influence of hot women. You know you like it, don't act chivalrous :)

I just watched a pole dancer do her thing for 30 seconds. Apparently this is supposed to get me hyped up for a new game? Didn't work.
But somehow my infantile brain has related this blunt sex appeal to the experience I'll get in the game.
I am now totally captivated with this game that I know nothing about aside from the fact that it was marketed with strippers.

And holy shit, if all strippers were that...limber, Cirque du Soleil would go out of business.

I have to ask...how did that stripper get so far up the pole? I mean, do her shoes have climbing tacks on or something?

Anywho... Activison, increasing the net level of evil in video gaming since 2000.

BREAKING NEWS!

No shit Sherlock. The people who you sell the game to will just be a bunch of sweaty, pubescent, 13 year old chronic masturbating assfucks.

Thats nice. How about some actual GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE?
Read the article. They did show some gameplay footage, just because you didn't see it in the video does not mean it didn't exist.

And what's with people reading only the headline and commenting about that then?

I'm with you on that. Pole dancers are boring.
Now if she was topless... Hmm...

Thanks for that Bob. We've also late breaking news that Activision has been described as being akin to the "Pale Rider" that speaks of the end of days. More on that later.

There does seem to have been some controversy about women being allowed into GDC who were not actually strippers. Surely these suffragettes are getting too far ahead of themselves since they were given the vote.

Here at Faux News though, we welcome the ladies out of the kitchen to pole-dance for our nerds that are obviously incapable of getting close to a woman normally.

[small]Seriously? Strippers...ffs. Why not just have authentic heroin samples to sniff as well?[/small]

until they have a satanic blood orgy with drugs not known in this dimension, 10,000 year old lust demons molesting you at every step while the resurrected remains of Kurt Cobain plays the songs he wrote in HELL! becomes popular then I'm keeping my shocked pants on the coathanger.

I just can't wait until the new Kirby game gets announced

So wait, i've never played it but just how many boobs were in Modern Warfare 2?

If enough copies sold to ensure that everyone owned 2.7 copies, that's a lot of boobies.

And was it man boobs only?
