    "lovemakers" - you know even she's a little ashamed when she can't tell it like it is.

      Yup, and the nobel sounding "Call of duty" should be called "maximum gore, blood and bodies" to be accurate. That's about as shameful as her naming..

    Hmmm..

    " Guests who attend this one are to be given a new Xbox 360 console and copy of the game. Schweet."

    Sounds like the usual EA/Microsoft backhanders at work. Isn't this illegal?

      "Here's the game to review"

      What crime would they be committing?

      I'm not sure that biased reviews are against any law.

        if you are given an xbox360+game then review that game positively you may have just fallen foul of such things - biased review....or bribed review?

      Maybe...

      they think their product will get used in, e.g. media productions. I mean, the old plumber come to fix the drippy tap storyline is wearing a bit thin. Maybe it goes like this...

      *DING DONG*

      (Door opens on geek guy with tool bag)

      "Hi, I've come to fix your Xbox... you, er, maybe want to show me it."

      "Oh, yeah. Hi, come in. I was just giving it a good thrashing when the ring went all red and glowing, and now the box has gone down and I can't get it up again..."

      "Let's get that top off shall we?"

      *Boom chikka wa wa boom boom*

      Similarly, as Colonel Kurtz once said:

      I bet she can't even begin to contemplate the false puritanism in the US.

    NSFW?

    Excuse me if I am a bit harsh. but shouldn't that have been "NSFE"? I've been bleaching my eyes for the past 15 minutes but it won't go away.

      Sorry, stupid question, but what does the E stand for? And what's on the site? Tell me, I'm at work, dammit!

    What did they think she was going to do give the presenter a BJ on the stage.

    I wonder if she's ever stuck her finger in a dyke?

    Well that was my reaction after seeing her (silicon enhanced) website :)

      More like roadside assistance

      Stop insulting the skanks, the material on that website looks like "roadside assistance" from the lorry park.

      NSFE all right.

    Making love it isn't

    Selling sex to those who prefer to buy and own, rather than engage and have a relationship, it is.

      Hi, are you a woman?

      Selling sex to those who don't have a problem enjoying it on their own, who may or may not be in an engaging relationship, rather than prudes who are scared of sex. Although, no, I wouldn't describe it as making love.

    How times have changed...

    IRRC way back in the mists of ancient time (1994) Ginger Lyn Allen played 'Rachel Coriolis' in Wing Commander 3. Ginger was at the time somewhat well known for her... ahem... alternative film roles. She'd be about 50 by now...

    So a pr0n star actually starred as a character in a game, ok, as a mechanic admittedly.

    For memory the outakes included with game showed that her acting skills made Mark Hamill look like Sir Alex Guiness. The highlight of the cast was Tom Wilson, along with Tim Curry & Malcolm McDowell - blimey, when you look at it again its a bit of a stellar cast!

    No idea what icon to use, so I'll have a pint, thanks.

      It's even better than that

      Wing Commander 3 was published by ... Electronic Arts.

    Not surprised...its EA

    They have never missed a chance to make a poor decision.

    I'm sure the majority of gamers would agree, its none of their business what she does on her own time.

    Microsoft - Not EA

    This is Microsoft's call not EA's. They did not want to be associated with any more Red Rings of Death.

    "People murdering people is neat," she said "but lovemakers are dirty?"

    Yepp welcome to Anglo Saxon hypocrisy.

    personally I think it boils down to jealousy, we can't stand the thought that someone else might be having more fun than we are so we want it all banned.

    Killing people is fine, enjoyment is to be banned at all cost.
