Dtoid Exclusive: Playboy's Jo Garcia tribute to gaming

4:00 PM on 09.19.2011 // Niero Desu
  @destructoid

[First we brought you the wallpaper, and here's the video! Thank Playboy for making Monday suck less.]

This. Since 2006 Destructoid has published every form of conceivable games editorial imaginable. We've brought you coverage of every gaming event around the world, interviewed nearly every important gaming personality, sat with developers, chased lawyers, fought with corrupt games marketers, and have published thousands and thousands of reviews, previews, rumors, and leaks. We believe in hard-hitting gaming because that's where our passion lies and that's what our readers want most ... with one exception to the rule.

In our entire canon of work do you know what our most popular article of all time is according to our server-side analytics?  This nerdcore gallery of boobies from 2006.  Yup.

Dear reader, you are unabashedly The Dude.

 

When I opened up my inbox today I was surprised to find none other than email from Playboy offering our readers the enclosed high resolution wallpaper of Jo Garcia, the part-dork-part-model hybrid pictured somewhere in that vortex of video game peripherals. The ongoing series of wallpapers are housed at Playboy's Gamer Next Door, and there's also a production video coming. (No pun intended). 

On one hand we stubbornly have ignored our numbers and rarely strayed from core gaming news. On the other hand ... well, you don't want to know what the other hand is doing. 

Internet, what is is that you command me to do?  

In all seriousness I've asked various colleagues who publish web sites and my research has concluded is that we must absolutely participate in some way that is respectful to readers that don't want breasts-on-games, and maybe cleverly disguise it somewhere else on the site.  Am I right, my naughty forum goers?

Ladies and gentlemen, our magic word for this kind of content is now "kittens".  If you'd like to see more kittens on Destructoid please sound off in the comments below.

The good news: XCOM 2 is installed on my pc. The bad news: It runs about as well as a fat kid on ice.

Glad I can support the site again with HUGE since my life is mostly back in order. Curious though if anyone knows what happened to the Merch Shop for the site.

I ended up buying Yakuza 3 on Amazon and nabbing Gravity Rush Remastered on the PS Store. Both have trophies so I'm pretty hyped to play em.

Looks like Nintendo was selling a North America exclusive 3DS cover plate. At least, I've never seen this particular one before. It's out of stock now, though.
