Sega and Maxim team up to find a 'real life Bayonetta'

As if there were any doubt that Bayonetta is selling itself primarily on sex appeal, here comes Sega to announce a sleazy partnership with bottom-tier wank mag Maxim. The chuckling monkey men of Maxim are helping Sega find a "real life Bayonetta," a girl who captures the "style and attitude" of Platinum Games' upcoming title.

"Bayonetta is lethal -- she’s beautiful but brutal. We’re convinced she will stir up the Maxim readers.” claims Sean Ratcliffe, Sega marketing VP. "We can’t wait to see the Maxim.com audience rise to the challenge of trying to find us a real life Bayonetta."

I'm certain they will rise to the challenge. Yes I am talking about penises in that last sentence. Erect ones.  With a bit of wet on the end.

We'll be following this contest with all the due care and attention it deserves, and by that I mean we might post about the winning lady if her busters are big enough and there are photos of her in just her underpants. Otherwise, I'm going to just keep tapping my foot impatiently for this game, because it will be awesome. That's not up for debate.

SAN FRANCISCO (September 2, 2009) – SEGA® of America, Inc. today announced a contest to find a real life BAYONETTA™ on Maxim.com, the digital counterpart to Maxim, the largest young men’s lifestyle magazine in America. SEGA is looking for the one girl who best captures the style and attitude of the heroine of PlatinumGames’ upcoming action game.

Bayonetta already promises to be the most distinctive videogame star of 2010 whose long flowing hair is as lethal as the guns in her ankle holsters. Her unique look, combined with the acrobatic nature of her attacks, provide the ideal attributes for an aspiring model to bring Bayonetta to life. The winning contestant will be spotlighted on Maxim.com and receive a Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, a 50 inch Panasonic TC-P50X1 HDTV Plasma TV and a copy of BAYONETTA for the Xbox 360®.

“Bayonetta is lethal – she’s beautiful but brutal. We’re convinced she will stir up the Maxim readers.” said Sean Ratcliffe, Vice President of Marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. “We can’t wait to see the Maxim.com audience rise to the challenge of trying to find us a real life Bayonetta.”

Entrants must be 18 years or older and a legal, female resident of the United States or Canada.  All photo submissions must be received by September 30, 2009 to be eligible for consideration. Maxim, SEGA® and PlatinumGames will select the entrants for the online voting gallery and fans will vote on the top entries at Maxim.com from October 1 to October 23, 2009. PlatinumGames will factor in all of the responses to determine the Grand Prize winner. The winner will be announced on October 29. For the official rules with complete entry, eligibility, prize and other details, visit: www.Maxim.com/Gaming. NO PURCHASE NESESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED.  Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.

BAYONETTA is being developed for SEGA by PlatinumGames, the Japan-based independent video game development company that recently took the video game and art world by storm with the visceral and distinctive MadWorld™. Following that critically-acclaimed title, BAYONETTA is a stylistically unparalleled action game that stars an ancient huntress named Bayonetta who uses body, wepons, and supernatural power to obliterate demonic enemies.

BAYONETTA™ is slated for release in January 2010 for Xbox 360® and PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.

Maybe this has been addressed, but what the hell is going on with Disqus here?

Also, I think my Wii U gamepad is on its last legs... the NFC reader is still kaput, the screen is rather smudgy and the L button is started to stick like a motherfucker. Sooner or later it's just going to stop working altogether methinks. :'(

Nintendo just sent me an email to say "Congrats on your new Wii U!". It wasn't new it got fucking FRIED and now all my stuff's gone after repairs - I was in Chapter 9! Chapter 9! 70+ hours on XCX! And that's just one game! I was- *walks off ranting*

Irony: over 9000!. The same UN with staff distributing child porn, Saudi Arabia heading its Human Rights Council and troops accused of rape wants to school Japan on their treatment of women in videogames. You can't can't make up this stuff.

So I got my game recorder. That's good! But I ordered the wrong one. That's bad. So just gotta send back to Amazon and order it. Could've sworn on the website it said the HD60 Elgato let you record old games too.

It just occured to me that given the 99% probablility of there being an update pack to XCOM 2-ala Enemy Within-waiting for a while may be a better option, so that when I do get the game I get it in its optimal form-and on sale, to bring it below 90 total
