Playboy Centerfold is Former Guitar Hero P.R. Rep

October 25, 2008 -

To my great surprise there was a plain brown envelope from Playboy Enterprises International in the GamePolitics post office box yesterday. Inside was the November issue.

After about three hours of perusing the magazine (in the interests of giving GP readers a complete and accurate report), I figured out the reason why Playboy sent the mag my way.

It seems that Miss November, Grace Kim, is a former publicist for Guitar Hero publisher Activision. The brief bio which accompanies her centerfold pictorial discusses her connection to the game: 

I play a mean game of Guitar Hero and I'm willing to challenge anybody. I must warn you I'm a very sore loser - at any game...

 

Grace says her ideal date is a round of Guitar Hero or Rock Band with perks.

Kotaku has a lengthy interview with Grace:

I had heard of an opening to work directly with the head director of Guitar Hero, so I applied, and I didn't think I'd get the job because there were so many applicants... but I also had a lot of PR experience. I was really blessed that they brought me on board. I think they appreciated my passion...

"Activision was getting annoyed [over the time demands of the Playboy picture shoots], and I wanted to keep my job [at first]... But my boss wasn't happy and I wasn't happy, and being a Playmate is a job. I really wanted to explore that area, and see where this path would take me. And, working so much for Activision kind of killed my love a little for Guitar Hero.

Obliviously you are a person with issues regarding gender and sex. Consequently I shall not waste anymore time responding to your pedantic & prudish - nay, childish viewpoint. Any discussion will likely fall on deaf ears and I don’t have time to squander on people like you.

And yet you bothered to respond at all.

Golly, you sure showed me, champ.

Re: Playboy Centerfold is Former Guitar Hero P.R. Rep

Being a Playmate isn't a 'job', you whore.

Re: Playboy Centerfold is Former Guitar Hero P.R. Rep

Damn! That is pretty harsh and very wrong. Being a model is being a model. She is not making sex movies and even if she was that is her business.

Really? So how do you put that down on a résumé, exactly? "Well, I can hold my pussy open with one hand while making an 'Oooh!' face, and I can also fondle my tits while making a 'You want some of this?' face."?

Right right right, just like I went through hundreds of old penthouse magazines so I could get a better understanding of the people vs. larry flynt. You know for purely an academic point of view.

Let's not be sexist now. Don’t forget to include the girls too.

Hmm... Yeah I read that before - oh well, maybe you can get one of the mods via the shourt box to remove it for you.

SWEET! USDA select 100% pure unadulterated feminine beauty at its finest!

A little teaser for everyone: - zapped -

GP: the link was a bit much. I think we can see by the picture on the front page that Grace is an attractive woman.

Re: Playboy Centerfold is Former Guitar Hero P.R. Rep

You might have wanted to add a NSFW tag to that.

Re: Playboy Centerfold is Former Guitar Hero P.R. Rep

Sorry about that. I forget to do stuff like that often since I'm the boss at work.

@GP - For what it is worth, I dont think linking to the source material is "a bit much" to be honest. It is no different than any other story you covered and have referenced direct and germane sources as well as supporting information sites. For example the court documents for JT's hearing.

 

Just because the topic is related to the human form does not change the nature of journalistic principles. Yes I did not put a NSFW notice initially - a social grace if you will, but other than that I don’t believe I was in error.

:O

Re: Playboy Centerfold is Former Guitar Hero P.R. Rep

Didn't she used to be in the WWE as well? I think she came in about the time I stopped watching.

Also: I have serious doubts as to the validity of your source, can you put up a scanned PDF for "verification"?

Re: Playboy Centerfold is Former Guitar Hero P.R. Rep

That was Gail Kim, also Korean but from Canada. Apparently on her way back to WWE.

Re: Playboy Centerfold is Former Guitar Hero P.R. Rep

I play guitar hero 2 anyday with her, I play a mean combo o that cheap trick band song i like.

Re: Playboy Centerfold is Former Guitar Hero P.R. Rep

Was that the only picture? :P

Re: Playboy Centerfold is Former Guitar Hero P.R. Rep

LOL Probably the only one he could post without being labelled as a 'Pornographer' by certain unemployed people ;)

Re: Playboy Centerfold is Former Guitar Hero P.R. Rep

How come she's holding a Rock Band guitar?

Re: Playboy Centerfold is Former Guitar Hero P.R. Rep

Because she actually says that she likes Rock Band more than Guitar Hero.

Re: Playboy Centerfold is Former Guitar Hero P.R. Rep

Honestly it look like it would work better for the photo anyways.  You can tell it's a controller, but it still has that "could be a guitar" look.  And the black & white design fits better with her clothes, without trying to fight for attention with added colors.  And yes, I do work with Photoshop jobs on the side so I tend to think of these things lol.  I also just noticed the Rock Band drums in the background...so it could also just be a nice "FU" to Activision since she left.

ZippyDSMleeEvil within is a badly designed game.11/27/2014 - 7:28pm
Andrew EisenSure but you said "widens," hence my confusion. Looking into it, yep, there's a tweak to completely re-frame the image, adding more info at the top and bottom. You apparently need a fairly beefy rig to keep it running smooth when you do that though.11/27/2014 - 6:48pm
Matthew Wilsonthere is vertical fov, not just horizontal fov11/27/2014 - 6:38pm
Andrew EisenWell, you can widen it to 3:1 or even 10:1 but I don't know why you'd want to. From what I understand it's the missing visual info at the top and bottom that some object to, not that there isn't enough on either side.11/27/2014 - 6:36pm
Matthew WilsonI think it widenss the fov, so you get to see more.11/27/2014 - 6:31pm
Andrew EisenI don't see how as doing so would not add any visual information to the top or bottom of the screen.11/27/2014 - 6:04pm
Matthew Wilsonfrom what I read, getting rid of the black bars and stretching it out made for a better play experience.11/27/2014 - 5:59pm
Andrew EisenFrom what I hear, there's a ton of "look up and shoot at the guys above you" stuff in the game that the wider frame doesn't accommodate such actions well.11/27/2014 - 5:55pm
Andrew EisenHaving a game run in scope is not necessarily a bad thing but like any aspect ratio, you have to compose your shots correctly.11/27/2014 - 5:55pm
Neo_DrKefkaThe Evil Within was pretty bad and to make it worse the way the screen size made it hard for you to see even on a big screen it really hurt the game. Being Artistic is great but when you focus on art rather than what sells you run the risk of that happen11/27/2014 - 5:33pm
