The message is nice enough and I dig the hair. Here's hoping she does a quality job.

she doesn't look pretty to me. She looks rather appalling

NiteX824d ago

@SonyWarrior

I bet she's a really pretty girl without that awful make up and green hair.

Bioware is gonna flop this gen. Mass Effect 1 is in my top 5 games last gen and there's noway they will make it to my top this gen again. Destiny holds that's spot.

Rhaigun824d ago

So, they get rid of, Chris "Evil" Priestly, whom everyone loved, and replace him with this?

DragonKnight824d ago

@SonyWarrior: You forgot to put your glasses on. She's quite an attractive woman.

@Rhaigun: The patriarchy at work. Am I right?

Rhaigun824d ago

@DragonKnight

No. You are not. Regardless of what the sex of an employee is, shouldn't the first basis of getting a job be experience in said field of work?

DragonKnight823d ago

@Rhaigun: My point flew right over your head it seems.

Also "Regardless of what the sex of an employee is, shouldn't the first basis of getting a job be experience in said field of work?"

Say hello to Affirmative Action.

My point was mocking the fact that there are those that believe men are purposely keeping women out of _____ field when things like this happen. Here a woman with no experience in the job is replacing a guy with a lot of experience in the job.

Can't 100% say for sure that it's BECAUSE she's a woman, but others have already made that conclusion based on available evidence. Which makes me redirect you to Affirmative Action. Or possibly "blatant PR move."

Rhaigun823d ago

@DraginKnight

I know full well what Affirmative Action is. A better question for you would be, does Canada have functioning Right to Work laws, or would this be considered as Wrongful Termination?

Maybe she can do a better job of informing the devs what the SWTOR community actually want, assuming they're even listening anymore.

..and yes, that is a snazzy hair-do.

egidem824d ago

I'm beginning to think that he does this intentionally.

Activemessiah825d ago (Edited 825d ago )

Because Ubisoft couldn't afford to pay her... would take serious resources and time.

randomass171825d ago (Edited 825d ago )

Is that before or after Insomniac totally one-ups them? :P

Kevlar009824d ago

They'd have to hire a new mo-cap actress on top of everything

randomass171824d ago

Ubisoft makes millions on Assassin's Creed every year. They can definitely afford it.

@randomass
That's the joke.

MRMagoo123824d ago

There is still a swtor community ? I thought they all went back to wow after a month. Good luck to her, I cant imagine it will be hard coordinating a couple hundred subs tho lol.

thehobbyist824d ago

Uhm, it's still a thriving community. You don't go anywhere in the game(That isn't a private mission) without seeing other players around.

Iffyrhyme824d ago

I'm a gamer and don't know this chick. Is she someone important for me to care?

thehobbyist824d ago (Edited 824d ago )

She's a model who has good(Not great, but good) gaming videos.
She herself, is not especially important. But what is important is that after a quick google search I find nothing to suggest she's done any sort of community management/coordination of any kind in the past.
So this seems to be a first attempt and it'll be interesting to see how that turns out.
Good luck to her.

MonkeyOne824d ago

At least Bioware hired somebody who knows something about gaming (especially MMO's) instead of some "professional" consultant or analyst who played their last video game when Atari was big.

Go Pokket.

DragonKnight824d ago

So then BioWare agreed with her personal choice to objectify herself as a model who does games, and hired her without any qualifications for the job in terms of the job description.

Dat Patriarchy.

Snakester95824d ago (Edited 824d ago )

I worked alongside her for a bit a couple years ago, she used to do a lot of work for MMORPG.com. Mostly video work from what I recall, potentially some written.
