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.

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.

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

She explains it in a Myspace blog entry that I just found. Not hard to find either.

Sora-ChanSo it's just a matter of having better emulation software. If it can be done with a 3DS game, with all the memory and what not it takes up, it can be done with a GBA title through emulation.07/29/2014 - 7:30pm
Sora-ChanOther VC titles for the NES and Gameboy had the same setup where you couldn't access the homescreen without quitting out of the game til a later update when those games were released for the public outside of the founder program.07/29/2014 - 7:28pm
Sora-Chanthe 3DS can, and does, run GBA games, as seen by the founder gifts, which included a number of GBA titles. As for running GBA games and still having access to the home screen, I beleive it's more of the game emulation software needs to be updated.07/29/2014 - 7:27pm
Matthew Wilsonthe 3ds already swaps os's with the original ds. plus I dont think people expect miverse interaction when playing a gba game.07/29/2014 - 6:06pm
MaskedPixelanteBut that's not the issue, the 3DS is perfectly capable of emulating GBA games. The problem is that it doesn't have enough available system resources to run it alongside the 3DS OS, and thus it doesn't have access to stuff like Miiverse and save states.07/29/2014 - 5:45pm
Matthew WilsonI am well aware that it requires more power, but if a GBA emulator could run well on a original psp, than it should work on a 3ds.07/29/2014 - 5:36pm
ZenThe reason the SNES could run Gameboy, or the Gamecube could run GBA was because their adapters included all of the necessary hardware to do it in the respective add-ons. The systems were just conduits for control inputs and video/sound/power.07/29/2014 - 4:51pm
ZenMatthew: Emulation takes more power than people realize to run a game properly. You can make something run on less, but Nintendo...as slow as they are at releasing them..makes them run as close to 100% as possible. Each game has its own emulator for it.07/29/2014 - 4:47pm
Matthew Wilsonkind of hard to believe since the 3ds is atleast as powerful as the gamecube hardware wise.07/29/2014 - 4:27pm
MaskedPixelanteYes, the 3DS has enough power to run 16-bit emulators, but not at the same time it's running the 3DS systems themselves. You could run the games, but you wouldn't get save states or Miiverse.07/29/2014 - 4:04pm
InfophileRunning GBA on 3DS shouldn't be hard. The DS had flashcarts sold for it that added just enough power to emulate GBA and SNES games, so the 3DS should have more than enough natively.07/29/2014 - 3:37pm
MaskedPixelanteIt's a bunch of people whining about boycotting/pirating Trails in the Sky FC because XSEED didn't license the Japanese dub track, which consists of about 10 lines per character.07/29/2014 - 11:27am
