Hitman Absolution
Watch Video

Much like the hair and costume folks for Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj, the marketing folks for video games know exactly what they’re doing when it comes to getting attention for their product. And as we’ve seen all-too-often with video games, the go-to advertising strategy is sex, sex, more sex, followed by a healthy dollop of sexualized violence against women.

The lastest game raising hackles is “Hitman: Absolution” — specifically, its new trailer, “Attack of The Saints,” which features “sexy dominatrix nuns” getting punched, kicked and shot at by the game’s hitman hero, Agent 47.  Keep reading »

Macho Urinal Game Makes A Splash In Japan

Three years ago the “Toylet” was just a pipe-dream for developers at Japanese video game maker Sega, but now the urinal video game has been rolled out at pubs across the nation.

Users target their urine at a sensor inside the toilet which measures volume and speed, with software then matching that to progress in a selection of five video games in a console mounted at the top of the urinal.

“At first, we thought it would really be only young people who would like this kind of game. But … we’re seeing this phenomenon where people are enjoying playing with it, regardless of age,” said Hirotaka Machida, the console’s lead producer. Read more …

Gamers get a bad rep: They’re typecast as plump, basement-dwelling man-children who lead reclusive lives and collect actions figures. Apparently, that’s way off base. A study by GameHouse says that 55 percent of online gamers are actually female. Not only that, but in comparison to female non-gamers, they are happier, more social, and get it on more often! Say what?! Is Farmville really the solution to all of life’s problems? Keep reading »

Video Games & Boobs: Hooters Opens An Arcade In Vegas

Food, sex and video gaming: it’s the ideal trifecta for any run-of-the-mill male and Hooters Casino Hotel in Las Vegas is making it a reality. The Joystixx (yes, that’s really the name) is 21+ and calls itself the “best new place to score in Vegas.” Joystixx opened last month in the infamous chain’s casino, offering “classic arcade games, drink-serving gamer girls, and private video game console booths,” according to the gamer blog Kotaku. The Hooters “gamer gals” will undoubtedly have showgirl figures — but spending your vacay in Vegas in a private video game console booth? Especially one that’s open until 3 a.m. every night? You can do better than that. [Kotaku via Hooters Casino Hotel]

At some point in time, “gamers” got a bad rap. Let’s stop stereotyping the “gamer” world as a place exclusively for basement dwelling social pariahs in dingy underwear who subsist on Hot Pockets microwaves with love by mom. Those of us — yes, women game too! — who play video games also enjoy socializing with friends (outdoors even!) during the daylight hours and have other hobbies besides completing the “Braaaaaaaaaaaaains!” mission in Borderlands. In fact, we even date!
