Cassandra Khaw is one of those people who takes pride in the fact she's a full-time, hardcore geek. She claims to be capable of reading binary still and spends too much time rewriting her code. By day, she's a PHP programmer who moonlights as designer. By night, she's either MUDding, in a cybercafe or practicing street dance. She can also be bribed with penguins and brownies. Right now, she's webmistress and columnist for TK-Nation as well as a contributing writer at JayIsGames.
Now that the formal introduction's out of the the way; hey there! I write. I code. I do a lot of things. But mostly, thanks to both my regional situation and the ethics at my work place, I write about things that won't get the censorship board breathing down my neck. On the surface, I'm your average inhibited Chinese person living in South-East Asia. Underneath, there's a raw, seething ball of rage and -- well, you get the idea.
No self-censorship here and probably a lot of irate thoughts pertinent to things I've seen or written elsewhere. Enjoy the verbal flailing.
It's the time of giving, of sharing, of gift exchange and forgiveness. It's also the time for stuffing yourself silly with whatever goodies are arrayed on the table for you. Like every other celebration in the year, Christmas is also an excuse to make a glutton of yourself. Of course, having said, that I suppose this is probably the worst time for a post like this.
Seriously, Santa, I'd really like a good-looking gamer dude packaged under my tree this year.
Okay, he doesn't have to be a male model but he has to be -- what? Why are you looking at me like that? If you're wondering why on earth I'm purportedly bashing on the masculine section of the gaming community, I'm not. Well, not really.
Over the last few years, we've heard nothing but a constant stream of 'aren't there any hot gaming girls out there?'. Over and over, those words have been spoken. When one is presented to the world, everyone's quick to doubt her overall perfection. Don't get me wrong; I definitely don't see anything wrong with it. I like pretty things too. I like the idea of a guy I can compete against, someone who'd kick my ass at a game then tell me exactly how he did it. I'd also like him to be active enough to go dancing with me in the club, be fit enough to make my friends envious and all the things any normal woman wants.
You gamer guys have been lucky. You've seen proof that hot gamer chicks exist. My question this Christmas Eve is, what about us gamer girls? We'd like to have the same. We'd like to see a listing of the hottest men in gaming as well. We'd like raunchy shots that border on not-safe-for-work too. Granted, there's been some but not many. Where's the rest, guys?
Hot gamer guys. Myth or fact. What's your opinion on this?
