Saints Row Developer Didn’t Appreciate THQ Hiring Pornstar Tera Patrick as a ‘Special Producer’

When it comes to going too far in Saints Row and Tera Patrick, the pornstar THQ used to promote Saints Row 2 and was part of the Ultor Exposed DLC, Kate said, “I did not always love how much THQ put an emphasis on porn stars.” - PSLS (PC, PS3, Saints Row 2, Xbox 360)

Understandably so.

I think we all why she got the special treatment. I'm she gave a special treatment of her own.

"ZOMG porn stars aren't prostitutes! They're just people who have sex for money...but on camera! How dare you suggest that part of her being hired in a "special producer" role was sex!"

Every time a pornstar is used in a movie or game, I can't help but roll my eyes (it's usually obvious when they are, because they do use the same voice tone and are given token roles). You just know it has something to do with a higher up wanting to meet the pornstar in person and pretending to justify it as a branching tool for marketing.

Yet they hired a pornstar to do a terrible voice over for one of the main characters?

No, that's being hypocritical.
just-joe  +   444d ago
I thought Sasha Grey sucked in the game but hiring someone to do voice acting is not the same as giving someone the position of producer.

Her part in the game, was to suck?
Wenis  +   444d ago
Yeah Tera Patrick really sucks.

Or at least thats what I've heard..
aaron5829  +   444d ago
she does indeed suck... hard.
miDnIghtEr20C_SfF  +   444d ago
What's the problem? They probably needed her to authenticate the way the vibrators and diddly oh diddys moved and looked.

She is need for those important aspect of the game.

and people say "female roles" lack in the gaming industry.

Wait, you're telling me that she wasn't actually involved in development of the game?

I get that crude-ness is part of the SR joke, but I can't imagine how awkward it'd be to have a conversation with the wife after that hire.
RedHawkX  +   444d ago
i bet she walked in and slept with some of the dudes and they put her on the list while some people who actually worked on the game probably didnt which is messed up. now she gonna show this for her other job interviews and add in the sex factor and she will get mmore money then people who actually work.
SexyGamerDude  +   444d ago
If she had to sleep with someone she put in some kind of work.

An example of her doing no work would be her walking down the street and someone from THQ hiring her out of randomness.

There is more than one way to do work. She just did it her way.
RedHawkX  +   444d ago
i agree with you.
Me-Time  +   444d ago
I didn't read the article, but I hope that they "didn't appreciate" Tera Patrick as the "special" producer, because she IS a very special kind of bitch. I repeat, she's a filthy BITCH.
SexyGamerDude  +   444d ago
She's delicious.

I would kill for a pair of her panties.

Either SexyGamerDude disagreed with you, or someone else weird and creepy did.

Cyguration, I actually agreed with him.

I don't see the problem here. This a game that handed out purple dildos as a promotion tool.
cyguration  +   444d ago
Not to mention the anal rape gun.

Pornstar to voice a character? No prob.

Purple dildo bat? No prob.

Alien anal rape gun? No prob.

Pornstars promoting game? Oh heck no!
FreshRevenge  +   444d ago
Can someone go to college to be in the Porn industry? I am still baffle on why people need to watch other people having sex? It isn't like watching it, is going to get you laid or anything.

Yet seeing that the Porn industry is a Billion dollar market, I can see why this advertisement stunt was thrown together. Get billions of people who watch porn to look at your game!
MxRBrobaFett  +   444d ago
Bro, relax and go watch some porn
FreshRevenge  +   444d ago
I watch it daily but I still wonder why people need to watch it?
Bolts  +   444d ago
Why do people need to watch porn...Lol. Soft trolling at its finest.
Truth  +   444d ago
You watch it every day and question why other people need to watch it? Maybe you should question why you watch it every day first. Just saying...
FreshRevenge  +   443d ago
I can account why I watch it. But for those other people that watch it, I wonder about those people.

If you can't see the humor in that response than well that is your problem.
0pie  +   444d ago
what was her role as "special producer" ?
iamgoatman  +   444d ago
I'm guessing she "produced" "special" things. If you know what I mean.

I don't know what I mean.
0pie  +   443d ago
hahaha
Hazmat13  +   444d ago
i think Sasha gray did a good job. also love her vids. if you know what i mean.
aaron5829  +   444d ago
meh.. she curses too much...
Hazmat13  +   444d ago
to each there own. well i got a crime to solve, if you need me ill be in the hero cave rubbing out a solution.

Loved Tera when she was tattoo-free..

..although me thinks maybe she just wants to diversify her portfolio.

They talked about how they have tried to empower minorities and women with their game in some ways and I definitely think they are correct. I played through all of Saints Row 3 as the white female voice actress. I think her voice was really well done and fit the role very well.
BozoLoco  +   444d ago
Oh wow she's still around?
cyguration  +   444d ago
You've been watching porn for that long, eh?
BozoLoco  +   444d ago
Yep :P
Grimhammer00  +   444d ago
Oh for fuk sakes....its got purple dildos. Porn star hiring should be mandatory.

And yet, one of the feature appeals of SR3 was the possibility of smack people's heads with a giant purple dildo all the while dressed as a whore.

The idea of involving porn stars in my favorite hobby is just disgusting and sickening. However, it's not a reason for me to avoid said game if it has anything to do with them.

"Saints Row in a lots of ways has empowered minorities and empowered women, which I think is important to get across."

Whatever helps them sleep at night.
