Wanted: Secretary/Driver Who Looks Like Character from ‘The Force Unleashed’

Wanted: Secretary/Driver Who Looks Like Character from ‘The Force Unleashed’

If you’ve ever searched the help wanted ads for a job, you’ve seen all sorts of requirements, from fluency in a second language to experience in customer service. Some requirements are a little more stringent than others—I once saw a job posting in New York City that required fluency in Flemish—but none are as exact as the one that was posted to Australian job-hunting site, Seek. This ad requires the potential candidate to resemble Juno Esclipse, a character from the 2008 videogame, The Force Unleashed and its 2010 sequel, The Force Unleashed II.

You and Your Videogame Avatar Are More Moral Than You Realize

You and Your Videogame Avatar Are More Moral Than You Realize

Videogames are a great way to walk in someone else’s shoes, if only digitally. Depending on the game, you can do good deeds for the love of humanity or the love of money. You can swing a sword for freedom or for oppression. According to Dr. Andrew Weaver, your game choices are more obvious than you’d think. When it comes to moral decision-making, how you play your game is how you live your life–and you’re playing morally.

‘#1ReasonWhy’ Hashtag Explains Why There Are Few Female Games Developers

‘#1ReasonWhy’ Hashtag Explains Why There Are Few Female Games Developers

When games project specialist Luke Crane tweeted on November 27, “Why are there so few lady game creators?” he didn’t realize that he would create a minor tweetstorm. But Crane’s observation touched upon a nerve—and not just because he used the word “lady” instead of the word “female.” Within the last twenty-four hours, games developers—both male and female—have weighed in, using the hashtag, “#1ReasonWhy.”

It’s Do or Die in ‘Aliens: Colonial Marines’ Survival Mode Trailer. Mostly Die

It’s Do or Die in ‘Aliens: Colonial Marines’ Survival Mode Trailer. Mostly Die

The xenomorphs want to kill you. I’m not just saying this because I’ve seen all of the movies where H.R. Giger’s creation appears (Alien and Aliens, among them). I’m saying this because I’ve seen the “survival multiplayer” trailer for the upcoming videogame, Aliens: Colonial Marines. Not only do they want to kill you, but also they’re pretty good at it.

Five Chocolate Bars You Should Be Eating Now

Five Chocolate Bars You Should Be Eating Now

The taxonomical name for chocolate is Theobroma, that is, food of the gods—appropriately named, because these beans, when dried, processed, and sweetened, make a tasty confection that is simply divine. Not only is chocolate potentially a health-saver (as Forbes blogger Dr. Robert Glatter, put it, the flavonoids in chocolate “may provide antioxidant, anti-thrombotic, and generalized anti-inflammatory protection against cardiovascular disease”), but also it’s tasty as hell. Let’s eat.

IO Interactive ‘Hitman: Absolution’ Launch Party: Do We Really Need Pole Dancers?

Hitman: Absolution isn’t the only game to contain a scene in which our protagonist frequents a strip club for the purpose of tracking a target. But unlike the other games, IO Interactive paid serious attention to detail by motion capturing a pole dancing competition and using the dancers’ moves in-game. IO Interactive has taken this attention to detail one step further: According to an anonymous source, they recently held their launch party in a strip club.

Diet for a Marathon Gaming Session

Diet for a Marathon Gaming Session

Raise your hand if you’ve ever had a marathon, day-long session of gaming. Now lower your hand. Now raise it again. That was important, actually. Gaming may be a great way to spend an hour or twenty-four, but it’s an extremely sedentary hobby. And if you’re don’t exercise and eat right, over time you can find yourself with multiple unwanted pounds or even circulatory problems and high blood pressure. That can’t possibly be good for your game.

LEGO Releases Their ‘Lord of the Rings’ Launch Trailer

Usually, when a game trailer consists solely of cutscenes, it makes me suspicious: If the cutscenes are that much more cinematic and interesting than the gameplay, then someone is doing something wrong. But in the case of the LEGO Lord of the Rings launch trailer, I’m absolutely fine with it. I’m fact, I’m positively tickled. [...]
