The Next Best Thing?

For all of you Google and other search engine visitors for the search term "Samus Aran naked" (for there are many), I give you this.
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Playboy is taking a chance on silicon instead of silicone. The October issue of the men's magazine features several video game characters posing in the nude - images created by the game companies through detailed computer illustration.

"Hopefully the purists won't get too bent out of shape. This is just the next version of the pinup," said Playboy senior editor Scott Alexander, who developed the project.

The computerized models are part of the magazine's video game preview, titled "Gaming Grows Up." The five-page section starts with a topless image of the half-vampire, half-human title character from "BloodRayne," a leather-clad woman who fights with three-foot blades attached to her arms.
I guess the next line should be "Move Over Jessica Cutler?"

Look at the pixels on HER.

Yeah, Lara Croft!

But who the hell is Jessica Cutler? It's not like she can kick somebody's ass...

Hmmm - makes me feel like we're going to be outmoded soon Heather. Don't know how we'll ever compete with the "perfect" computer generated woman... or maybe we can until they build a "live" functional model. *grin*

I don't think I'm going to renew my subscription. Er, I mean, buy any more. Er, I mean...

Seriously though, my blog features *real* girls, not "Hentai" girls, for a reason.
