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

6:40 PM on 09.02.2009 // Jim Sterling

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 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, 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 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 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 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: 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.

Got Deadpool, Arkham Asylum and BioShock 1 and 2 all for 30$. Not to bad for going Black Friday shopping late.

If you haven't played Tales from the Borderlands yet, GO BUY IT! By far the funniest game I have ever played, and the characters and narrative are incredibly well written. Very few memes unlike BL2 by the way.

Played all of Life is Strange today in one sitting. Bloody hell. You should all play it. Only game this year to make me cry. Bravo developers. Possibly the most valuable thing I've ever bought for £10.

Last night, got farther than ever in Wasteland 2. This is my third playthrough-once thru beta, once through the orig version, now on Directors cut. Worth the restart, and it speaks highly of the game that I like it enough to do this. DAMONTA HERE I COME!

GUYS HELP I KEEP BUYING MORE AMIIBO. Today it was Little Mac, since he went back up on Gamestop's website. I probably would have gotten Captain Falcon as well if I wasn't already running a little short on cash.

50 hours in and I can safely say that Xenoblade is the best JRPG I've played in years. Should hopefully be finished in time for X too!

I have 34 games in my Steam queue alone, 4 on xbone, and a handful on handhelds. I have 3 days to make a dent. Time's up, let's do this!

Community Question: To make up for yesterday, I decided to ask a second Community Question today. Have you taken advantage of any Black Friday deals today? If so, what did you purchase? Feel free to share pictures of your spoils, if you have any.

Black Friday is getting to me. All these games I kinda, maybe want that are at anywhere between respectable and deep discounts, but I'm not sure if I want to bite. I'm wondering if Godzilla's worth $12? After checking review scores, I'm not sure.

Black Friday slowly seems to creep its way onto Continental Europe, but I'm not complaining! I managed to get my grubby little paws on a new physical copy of The Wonderful 101 for €20! Thanks, America!

Community Question: Since I missed yesterday, I am going to do something a little different today. Are there any questions you would like to ask me for a change? If so, please feel free. I may add a second Community Question later today, as well.

While partially responsible for one of the biggest jokes in the metal, Cold Lake by Celtic Frost, Curt Bryant is doing the soundtrack to the game Slain!. I'm digging the shitty garage band vibe.
