Girls

I'm not sure why I'm about the embed the below YouTube video, but something compels me. In it, a gamer girl from Charisma +2 will teach you how to apply makeup so you look like Miranda from Mass Effect 2.

Here are the new things I've learned this morning: 1) Charisma +2 is a magazine and an agency for gamer girls who want to model, so if you need to hire someone to look good while playing Battlefield 2, that's your place. 2) There's a very popular sub-section of YouTube full of  videos where girls to teach each other how to put on makeup. Who knew?  3) The above Youtube model really does look like Miranda.

PS: I asked my wife whether she'd do her makeup like Miranda and he she hit me in the face with a rake. (via Kotaku)

Mafia II

This morning, 2K Games announced a team-up with Playboy, Thankfully, this won't be a sequel to Playboy: The Mansion. Instead, Hefner's company is providing access to its image database for for Mafia II.  Playboy will provide "unique in-game integration"  of more than 50 vintage Playboy covers and centerfolds into the Mafia II universe. So you'll be able to collect in-game girly magazines. Games take a leap forward.

"While most mob-inspired games' emphasis is solely on action, Mafia II features a deep and compelling narrative that is embellished with a sophisticated, era-evoking atmosphere," said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. "In partnering with Playboy, we are able to add a unique element of authenticity to the game by using vintage images from the magazine that illustrate the power of Playboy's influence on the attitudes and culture of that generation."

So say you're trying to enhance a deep and compelling, atmospheric narrative when people ask why you're drooling over cheesecake pics from 60 years ago!

Mafia II comes out for the PC, PS3 and 360 in August.

Sometimes, you just need to watch an internet video of Lara Croft and Princess Leia throwing snowballs at each other. Here you go:

Nugget From The Net: Lara Croft And Princess Leia Snowball Fight

I'd love to give you some more background on this video, but other than the fact that it says "Sundance 2010" and it comes from something called "Ego TV," a site that describes itself as "Aspirational lifestyle TV," I can't tell you anything. Damn you, lack of context! But it's probably better not to understand the point of this video. I mean, it's Princess Leia and Lara Croft having a snowball fight -- what else do I really need to know?

Lara Croft going from Eidos to Square Enix in May 2009

In spite of being an older woman, long past her fictional prime, Tomb Raider protagonist Lara Croft is having a road named after her in England.

The new road is in Derby, and Croft's name was chosen by popular vote. Twenty-seven thousand residents weighed in on the naming, and nearly 90 percent chose Croft.

Why would so many people want their road named after a fictional character from video games? Because Lara Croft was created by Core Designs, a company located in the city of Derby.

Councillor Lucy Care, cabinet member for planning and transportation, told The BBC: "The vote really captured the imagination of people from across the world and, despite my lack of gaming knowledge, I accept that a majority of 89% for Lara Croft is too overwhelming to ignore... She was created in Derby and deserves to stand alongside some of the more traditional icons of the city."

Personally, I want to rename my street Nico Bellic Way.

Yesterday we brought you word that Apple seems to be banning a bunch of titillating applications from the iPhone and iPod Touch. Attack of the Show took on the topic in The Loop, with Suicide Girls co-founder Missy Suicide. Missy's Flip-Strip app has been pulled, so Missy has seen the result of Apple's censorship first-hand. We weep for her loss.

Apple Bans

Titillating iPhone applications are generally pretty gross. There's a time and a place for everything, and IMO your phone isn't the place, and riding the bus isn't the time. But I don't think they should be banned. Sadly, I'm not in charge of Apple, because Jobs and Co. are reportedly pulling a ton of applications from iTunes for being too sexy. Mind you, we're not talking hardcore porn here. We're talking apps that featured swimsuit models and the like.

The creator of the Wobble application (a genius-program that adds jiggling functionality to otherwise static images) spoke to Apple, and says they told him the new rules are as follows:


1. No images of women in bikinis (Ice skating tights are not OK either)

2. No images of men in bikinis! (I didn’t ask about Ice Skating tights for men)

3. No skin (he seriously said this) (I asked if a Burqa was OK, and the Apple guy got angry)

4. No silhouettes that indicate that Wobble can be used for wobbling boobs (yes – I am serious...)

5. No sexual connotations or innuendo: boobs, babes, booty, sex – all banned

6. Nothing that can be sexually arousing!! (... those puritanical guys at Apple must get off on pretty mundane things to find Wobble “overtly sexual!")

7. No apps will be approved that in any way imply sexual content (not sure how Playboy is still in the store, but …)

The iPhone and iPod touch already have pretty robust parental controls, so I'm not sure why Apple would make this decision, but welcome to the Brave New World, where the manufacturers of entertainment/information platforms make arbitrary decisions about what content you're mature enough to view. 

God knows what evil would happen if I were to look at a hot chick in skater-tights on my iPhone... and what about our nation's beloved beach volleyball players? Can I not look at Misty May on my iPhone? What is the world coming to??

It's almost Valentine's day, so in honor of the sappiest of all holidays, X-Play surveyed the history of video games to bring us all the Top Five Love Stories In Gaming History. Watch it, won't you?

My favorite gaming love story: The lady in the jumpsuit and the Weighted Companion Cube in Portal.

For guys, February 14th can bring the same kind of dread that April 15th brings to honest tax-payers. If you don’t have a Significant Other, the constant barrage of images of happy loving couples can drive you to murdering hookers in Grand Theft Auto IV, and if you have a girlfriend, wife, concubine or interested cougar, you have to worry about getting her a gift. And you'd better get it right.

You’re probably bad at giving gifts, let’s face it. There's a wealth of information on the internets about what to give girls, but most of it is terrible advice, especially if you happen to be dating a gamer girl or a nerd. Because I have your best interests at heart, I took a look at some of the suggestions other people on the net have for gifts and got the honest opinions of a random sampling of three gamer ladies here at G4.

Justin Onion RingI have a confession to make. TheFeed is written and staffed by 13 year-old girls. We pretend to be crusty old dudes who care about video games to fool you. But there's one subject that we cannot lie about: Teen sensation Justin Bieber!

At the mere mention of Justin's name, "Sterling McGarvey" (real name: Ashley) screams and throws confetti and "Jake Gaskill" (real name: Tyfffany) silently cries.

JUSTIN!  WE LOVE YOU!!!! OH MY GOD JUSTIN!!!!

I'm letting you in on the truth because Madison Klepek, Taylor Pfister, Starburst Eckstein, and the rest of TheFeed crew want to warn you about an evil facebook group.  A G4 reader sent our webmaster a link to a facebook page called "Can this Onion Ring get more fans than Justin Bieber?"

Who could possibly prefer a mere snack to JUSTIN? I mean, the onion is kind of cute and it can dance, but it's no Justin Bieber.

Right now, the Onion Ring has 1,215,000 fans and Justin Bieber has 1,600,782 fans, so it's getting close! and we need your help: We urge you to not go to the facebook and add to the Onion Ring's fans!  Don't help put the onion ring over the top.

This is, like, rilly rilly important.  If the Onion Ring wins, Justin will cry, and tiny crystaline tears will glitter on His perfect eyelashes...oh, JUSTIN! (sob, weep, running from room)

Record of Agarest War Limited Edition Creeps Me Out

Until this morning, Record of Agarest War was totally off my game radar. The Japanese strategy role-playing game hasn't been released in the States, and, quite honestly, it has the least memorable title I've ever heard. But it does, apparently, have one unique thing going for it: Along with the strategy, players can engage in a dating sim with the game's female characters and create new characters if the "relationships" are successful.

That's pretty creepy. But it's not half as creepy as the Record of Agarest War "Really Naughty Limited Edition." Get this; it comes with:

  • 26″ x 20″ Yearning Ellis pillowcase (pillow not included)
  • 8½” x 10½” Sensual Vira-Lor mouse pad
  • Record of the Agarest War Soundtrack
  • Naughty Collector’s Box "to protect your girls"

So a pillowcase emblazoned with the likeness of a main character and a squishy, boobie-mouse for all your... needs, I guess. The thought of a dude hugging an anime girl pillow and resting his sweaty wrist on some fake boobies fills me with a terrible dread and sadness. But hey, it's rated T, so it can't be that bad, right? If you're curious about the gameplay, check out this video:

Record of Agarest War The Really Naughty Limited Edition »


This is only for the 360 version of this game, and it's supposedly going to be release in the 2010 for the 360 and PS3.

I'm going to go wash my hands now.

We're continuing our Munn-centric day with another video from Ms. Olivia's special on Attack of the Show last night. You are lucky. In it, you'll get to the bottom of Olivia's obsession with pie.
