Kittens: Tough Than They Look

In this little film, the game “Assassin’s Creed Unity” becomes “Assassin’s Kittens Unity”, which is obviously way more fun for everyone involved. Also, I’m going to make the assumption that there is someone out there in the world who is employed to make patterns for kitten film costumes. Life dream status. [Jezebel]

In the United States, adult women are an impressive 48 percent of all gamers — more than gamer boys under 18.

Ellen Page's Creepy Beyond: Two Souls Shower

I don’t even understand what is going on here, maybe because I’m not a creepy creep who regularly watches pixelated Canadian actresses showering. But here we are! According to the gamer blog Kotaku, this is Ellen Page as a character named “Jodie,” in the vide game “Beyond: Two Souls,” taking a shower. Yes, you can watch her take her clothes off, rinse off under the water, then dry herself with a towel — just like a real woman. Very voyeuristic! It’s from something called “a debug PS3,” whatever that means. Anyway, without further ado … yeah, this is weird. [Kotaku]
