French Blur promo vids feature “hot chicks”, porn spikes

The US and UK Blur promo movies had developers explaining gameplay mechanics; the French versions include women in no clothing having some sort of hair-tossing competition.

Not sure what we’re supposed to say about these. These ladies don’t look as though they play games much. The press buttons a lot, and apparently race against each other in Blur wearing transparent stilettos. We reckon someone’s telling porky pies.

Blur’s out on PC tomorrow – pre-order for a few copy of Geometry Wars – and PS3 and 360 on Friday.

Thanks, AGB.

    @ Suidoken Fan: well they’re just showing/representing the different weapons and telling how they work. Then the guy comes and asks: “and you, which one will you choose (girl/weapon)” There’s no allusion 2 sex in both videos

    this is a very awkward way to promote the game of the year.

    that being said, I’d do bad things to get my hands on “Nitro”.

    Are these some random hot women or actual French porn*’s?

    Their acting is so bad that it hurts my ears. Plus, they obviously don’t know how to play video games or have been asked to exagerate everything by a stupid director.

    Anyway, for those interested, each of them pretends to be one of the buffs. They say things like “You like when things are going fast ? With me, use a little bit of Nitro, and you’re going towards victory” or “I’m Mine [the explosive]. I’m a real time bomb. Make them spin around with my power, and your adversaries will regret being too close too you”

    All of that is pathetic and I hope that feminists are going to complain to Activision about that because the depiction of women in those videos is … fairly stupid.

    @ Droid : I can’t say for sure because I don’t really watch that much those kind of movies, but they seem like random models to me (plus their acting skills are terrible, even by porn standards).

    Not sure what we’re supposed to say about these.
    That the french marketing department at Activision is composed of a bunch of idiots who should have stayed at TF1 (the most popular and most stupid TV channel in France) producing trash TV ?

    You can also say that the french marketing department at Activision think that french gamers are a bunch of lustful (true) morons (not really).

    Don’t get me wrong, I like to see girls with no clothing just as much as the next guy, but this screams “stupidity” to me.

    It’s not tough to decide when the choice is a surcharge, vs cake! ;)

    Well regardless of this video i was never gonna play this anyway, Activision are the least impressive publisher in my eyes as they have only 2 things i’d even glance at and its not cod,cod is overrated in my eyes.
