Sounds like an interesting concept; I'll keep an eye on its progress.
Cheers for the heads up on the game.
Sounds like every game this days needs to have a "creepy asylum level", in addition to a "stealth level" and "escort quest". In fantasy game, haunted library fulfills the same role :-)

So, can you lick this object? And lol @ complaining about being a sex object while she objectifies herselfs. Its like denying reality itself. Yeah, first thing men will see about a women is how beatiful she is, deal with it, or hide your skin if you don't like and begin to work on something that don't involves showing skin.
The game's concept sounds pretty interesting. Most procedurally generated game environments tend to look artificial and wonky which would be a big problem in a game focused on exploration, so let's hope they find a way around that.
As for Chobot, I'll wait and see. If the vocalist from My Chemical Romance can write a fantastic comic series (The Umbrella Academy) anything is possible.

And then I declare with upmost confidence you are an irredeemable moron.

However, if following that first impression you decide not to bother even finding out anything else about that woman, if you dismiss her as 'hot, therefore can't be taken seriously' then that's a problem with you. Do you see the difference? I can look at Jessica Chobot and think that she's hot, and then look at her work and think that she does some pretty good video journalism too. You look at her and see that she's hot and so then stop looking for anything else. That's not her fault.

The problem was when you were dismissing her as a writer/presenter based on the fact that she was hot and posed in a bikini.
Along the same lines, there's been some discussion about her body and appearance since someone posted some photos of her in this thread. Some people would tell you off for that. Not me. You pose for sexy photos and post them online, you're opening yourself up to comments about how sexy other people think you are.
But these are distinct things. You can't dismiss someone's writing because of an opinion about her modelling work. You can only dismiss it by looking at her writing.
If you look at it the other way, it's obvious how silly it is: "I've never seen a photo of her, but her writing is good which means she must be ugly".
Let's accept that the reaction to female games journalists posing in bikinis for photo shoots is that they get taken less seriously. There are two ways to fix this:
a) female games journalists stop posing in bikinis
b) male readers start to take female games journos seriously even when they pose in bikinis
Now, I think the solution should be b). There are two reasons I think that. Reason one is because I support a woman's right to do what she wants and not be judged for it in utterly unrelated fields. That's the fair, feminist point of view. Reason two is that I like looking at photos of hot women in bikinis.
I really don't see why you favour option a).

Now imagine John Walker bikini photos. It would be curiousity at worst and a complete non issue at best, and nobody would link it to him being good or bad at something completely different. It's a ridiculous thing.
It's certainly not limited to video games (journalism) but I fear its community is only a couple of years away from getting called backwards by the Vatican.

You won't bother to read anything she's written so you're more far more comfortable in your ignorance and stupidity by judging her on one point of her career than forming an actual opinion about all her work as a whole. She's not objectifying herself, you are. Because you just look at a few pictures and start babbling incoreherently.

No matter how much we might want it.
