Kotaku writes: It's easy to empathize, because we've all been there, or close. You have your 9 to 5 job, it's a good gig, the work's interesting. Then an amazing once-in-a-lifetime opportunity comes along and you have to sneak out to chase it. Grace Kim, as Activision's PR lead for Guitar Hero, was in that spot a year ago in October 2007.
"I was giving so many excuses," Grace said, "I even went to CVS and bought crutches, and pretended I had a fractured ankle. At this point, Activision was getting annoyed. They were really heavily promoting Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, and Guitar Hero for the DS. My boss was getting really upset."
Finally, on the fifth straight day away from the office, she couldn't think up any more alibis. So she quit, but she couldn't tell Activision why.
She was in front of a camera, taking off all of her clothes for Playboy, becoming Miss November, 2008.
She owns four consoles, a Playstation 3, Playstation 2, Xbox 360 and Xbox. But - and Sony fanboys, go get a glass of ice cold water for this next paragraph - she only plays on the PS3.
