Religion and Marketing Games: strange bedfellows

Hitman: Absolution and naughty nuns in latex inspire one's inner philosopher. (Culture, Hitman: Absolution, Square Enix)

People should not take things so serious IMHO. Good article!

I might get flamed, but I do think that its a bit of a cheap shot really. Do we need to have latex clad nuns to sell a game? I don't think so. I think its just polite to not mix in religion into marketing campaigns, just out of plain respect. Maybe I'm just old school.

One can also argue, that nuns have not looked better ever :P

Well, I personally am not offended by the nuns thing, but I did wonder why they wore disguises when they ended up taking them off in full view of everyone anyway xD
That trailer was quite amusing imho.

Wahaha, good point, Panda! :D

Agreed, but its a sugar and spice thing - mixing these two obviously different things results in a somewhat different, yet strangely enticing new mix.

Tasty, yet tasteless...
