After posting a blog update last week on IGN that left Mass Effect fans quite unhappy, Jessica Chobot has issued an apology for her comments on the game's ending.
She brought little more than poor voice work to ME3. Sucks that BioWare decided to kill off Emily Wong (over Twitter, to boot) to make room for Chobot's crappy character.
shame that she was a better voice actor than wongs too...
So what if she got upset when a game she was a character in is being bashed by whiny trolls on the internet? If you had that opportunity to be in a game and conspiracy theorist fanboy trolls bashed it every second they had the chance on their blogs, you'd be a little hurt too. And so what if she's marginally attractive? You should see the average girl who works at a gaming website, she's practically a gem in comparison, don't be surprised by her getting a ton of career opportunities in an industry filled with undersexed passive aggressive nerds.
she really thinks that she is THAT important and her opinion means shit to any gamer out there! she's on IGN for all the reasons but a gamer, she is not!
I have no clue why Bioware chose her as a VA... but their is something I need to get of my chest.. we guys are a bunch of hypocrites. We keep telling ourselves that people like Chobot and the G4 girls are fake gamers, but why do they still continue working? Why are those actual gamer girls always quite? Because we are just a bunch of horny, idiot,A**holes. Im sorry but it is true. Look on youtube, hundreds and hundreds of horny teenagers/adults watch the daily fix and that new show Chobot has, and always say they want to f**k either Chobot or Kyle for their bodies. Not their personalities. When they do state their minds, they are instantly told to shut up and lick a game console. Chobot is right about one thing, almost every female celebrity has that scandalous photo. Because thats what we want... T*ts and p*ssys. Not who the girl is as a person. Why do you think those replygirls on youtube are so prominant and always show cleavage? Because guys click with their d*cks rather than with their heads. I have a lot of girl gamers as friends, they love gaming so much, but they never use mics because of the sheer number of people who keep asking for nudes or for them to stop playing the ps3/xbox and make them a sammich. Its even more appalling that people are realizing and saying that they use Chobot for her looks... Well no sh*t! It has taken you this long to figure that out. I love how people complain about these fake gamer girls and say OH WE NEED REAL GAMERS...and when they hear or see them its always the same drill. Nudes or Sammich. You want real gamers show the media you are mature enough and that you will give anyone a chance. I watch inside gaming rather than the daily fix because they are trying to be a bunch of lazy jacka**es and I love it. Not some fake, hey guys here is your fix, nonsense. They probably hate all the people watching their show because the stuff they do is demeaning. We are hypocrites, don't expect change unless you are able to act mature to females who may not be pretty, but know their stuff. If you can't do that and want to bang every chick on youtube... might I suggest pornhub? They actually show their boobs and its just like youtube... or do your parents have the safety filter on?
I just don't understand monumental perverts like that. Sure I love tits and ass but it's not that hard to go about it the normal, less creepy way. Must be puberty mixed with gaming addiction and no social life, I guess. After that, it's disturbing.
I don't subscribe to any of that. I'm not a pent-up teen, ready to sling loads at every pretty face I see on my screen. I've gamed with girls my entire life, dating back to the SNES. The only females I ever liked on G4 were Morgan Webb and Sarah Lane. All the others were ditzy eye candy and didn't interest me in the slightest. In-fact, I stopped watching AOTS shortly after Munn came in and replaced Lane.
wow... my agree to digaree are 69. hmm funny. But now that Chobot responded to the Dianna Allers controversy, Im going to weight in. Truth is, why do people care that she is in the game? She is not a major character nor do you have to interact with her at all. I just used her for the 5 war assets and never talked to her after that. It was pretty much a small cameo, rather than a full on VA. So why are people so up and arms with Chobot in ME3? They think that because of her, IGN gave the game a 9.5 or she sucked someone at EA/biowares d*ck. Like I said, I have no idea why they chose her, but they did. Maybe IGN gave the game a 9.5 because.. you know it was A GREAT GAME MINUS THE ENDING? Truth is when she was announced as an actor, I just said ok and moved on. But now people are trying to link her with the poor ending, the picture of Tali, etc. Seriously, all of these Mass Effect controversies are getting ridiculous. People need to get over it now, I did 3 weeks ago. It was a bad ending, get over it. Stop displacing your anger onto everything related to Bioware or anyone who defends them. They are stating their opinion, it does not instantly make them a whore, you have no right to slit their kids throats(someone actually threatened Casey Hudson about that -_-) You have the right to be angry and demand a new ending... you do not have the right to act like a ... I honestly have no words foul enough to describe the behaviour of some of these people NOTE: Not all people who are disapointed act like this, most of them behave maturely, the problem is these people are f**king up our reputation
I'm more bothered that Chobot is in the game because it creates a pretty obvious conflict of interest for her and IGN when it comes to their opinions and review of Mass Effect 3.
Why does she even have to apologise? It's her opinion and if you don't like it, too bad. When is the last time you saw somoen on n4g apologise for an opinion? Gamers are becoming one of the most easy to offend groups. Right behind religious nutjobs and political nutjobs.
Pushagree you are talking semantics, of which should have been obvious to her and everyone else before she wrote it. Which is why she felt the need to apologize in the first place. I don't imagine you would run head first into a bee hive and expect not to get stung. An in return I could say I am sick of people who call them selves journalist. Trying to sit behind these articles an call me entitled or tell me what I should think. You know what would be really sad is if the gaming industry didn't speak up and let the inexcusable mistakes stand. When that day comes we will see just how many AAA games they will be enjoying. I bet you then they will be yelling where is the out cry for all these publisher driven call of duty wanna be rehash dlc mash ups. Though by then what's left of the gaming industry if you can call it that, will have no voice at all. An I mean seriously openly insulting people about something you haven't even done yet yourself. That was just asking for it.
This topic is 1000 degrees too hot IMO.
Who cares?! All I can think about when I see Jessica is how crazy her doggy style has to be. She's ultra freakin sexy. Anyone who dogs her is a meat gazer.
its ok babe
Not really sure why it is, but she really creeps me out! I would have preferred they kept Emily Wong.
Atleast she has a better body in the game than real life lol
Those boobs just felt wrong. Way too big and rigid(the oppo of DoA). A slap with those melons would have killed Shepard. And the face, I don't know what to say. So IMO she looks better in real life.
Hahaha, that picture in the spoiler for the article is priceless
Andrea Rene or Ubisoft's Jade Raymond (maybe even both) should have been in the game, not Jessica Chobot.
Well, at least she apologised. Although, I'm still going to kick her off the Normandy. :P
I didn't even took her onboard.:P That tomato shape face was too disgusting to me.
I just wanted to use her for the war assets. Good job that did.
used her for the war assets... never interacted with her at all after that... Where exactly does she go? Im curious
If you talked to her character some more after certain mission you could actually get a few more war assets. I know you get some more Turian support after doing an interview with her on the Normandy. I can't remember what else but I'm sure there's another. As for where she goes...she's in engineering where that Mercenary guy used to hang out in ME2. Deck 4.
Yes the war ass. I mean assets.
Through the air lock I hope.
men are superior to women in gaming ...see what i did thar?
Olivia munn is hotter
And it seems they both got famous by being good at one particular thing.
lmao nice one, bubbles for you.
The first problem here is actually listening to this dbag in the first place. Like I care what some hypocritical tool has to say. (She has outspoke about attention whore type girls, but got famous from licking a PSP and put her bust out there "for charity") The second problem is associating real 'girl gamers' with this pos. There are lots of female gamers who dont label themselves as female, who dont lick psps for attention, and who actually FINISH games before ripping on people for complaing about the ending. The third problem is she Pu**ied out and couldnt even stand by her own opinion. Her ignorant post was amusing. Her recant was cowardice. If thats how you feel lil miss gamer barbie, stand by your guns. I pray to the heavens most young gamers dont look up to trash like this. Put a morgan webb or a felicia day over this broad any day
All the G4 girls seem fake as hell man.
Wow im totally blown away by some of you guys and your comments. Reading some of these makes me wonder what some of your ages are. Some of you guys are just plain horrible and unreasonable douchebags. Noone has any "real" reason to dislike her as much as some of you are letting on. With the disagrees we will know just how many there are.
its like some of the COD hate, its considered cool to hate anyone associated with IGN.
I guess it's considered cool to buy a rehash every year too
me too. absolutetly blown away by the childish comments. calling Jessica "a whore" "piece of shit" "bitch" for apologizing? for doing what she loves? for giving her opinion? for being a beautiful woman? society is messed up. funny thing is there are tons of grown men on this site, men with wives and children (apparently) yet we're still subjected to such behaviour. I guess some "boys will be boys"? jusy wow
To each their own, but I really disagree on many of your points. Doing what she loves? She claims to love ME, and didnt even finish 3. But thought it right to take shots at fans for complaining about an ending she didnt even experience. She didnt give her opinion, because she claimed it wasnt her opinion. She said it was a mistake. So she undid the opinion she shared and essentially turned face. Beautiful? If she wasnt in gaming, shed be average at best. I dont see how disliking or thinking someone is a POS based on the way they got famous (licking systems), how they act (insulting, then playing the woe is me card) and how they judge (she cast judgement on others, then didnt expect it back?) is off. Its not like people are asking for her head on a spike. But as she thought people were whiny, entitled, babies, etc, people think ill of her. Dont dish what you dont want back.
Beautiful woman...laughed my arse off at this, as stated by ShinraE5, average at best.
Me too, man. If your reaction to someone apologizing for a previous mistake is to make personal attacks on him/her, then you are just a terrible, terrible person. Don't get me wrong, she earned plenty of criticism for her remarks. The remarks SHE'S APOLOGIZING FOR AND ADMITTING SHE WAS WRONG ABOUT. And if you think petty name-calling at this point is okay at this point, remove yourself from the internet and grow. the hell. up.
Who cares about the "she is hot / she isnt" debate , or if she is truly a gamer or not . As someone that had an acting gig in me3 , and already in "ethical" conflict with her usual job , apparently , she should have done the smart thing and just avoid commenting on the issue and the game , beyond her involvement .
Heres a picture from her wedding cake.
Exactly! The conflict of interest thing bothers me a lot. In a world where game budgets get decided on based on Metacritic reviews I think that professional game journalist need to be completely objective, but how objective can someone be when they are working for a gaming company on the side? The answer is they can't.
Why should she appologise to fans for having a stance on a game? Who cares if she personally liked/disliked it or not. Its her damned opinion and she, just like everyone else, is entitled to feel however they wish. Honestly though, people did throw a bitch fit over the ending of the game. I may not have finished ME3 myself yet. And if i dislike the ending, its not up to me to decide how it goes. Its the creators. End of story.
“You show me one actress, Female TV personality, host of a show that doesn’t have ‘sexy’ photos" Now that's pretty fucking sad coming from a woman...
Well thats a little unhygienic to lick a PSP .......... hang on
I didn't have any problem with her in the game but she shouldn't have been in the Harry Partridge cartoon
"“You know what folks. You’re 100% right. I shouldn’t have mentioned anything about my feelings about ‘entitled gamers’ when it comes to the ME3 ending (and my work in progress with it),” she wrote before going on to explain how the backlash Bioware is receiving has left her “a little heartbroken”. After ending her post with an “I’m sorry” the comments began spilling in leading to one of Chobot’s follow ups in which she claimed, “While I DO agree that gamers have a right [to] not enjoy the product and make their statements about it, I don’t agree in the aggressive and hurtful manner in which it has happened, and that includes me shooting off at the mouth.”" Hey! An honest, decently written apology and a shift to more level-headed stance on the issue! OPEN FIRE!
You mean her PR people made a decent written apology...
Jessica Chobot, shut up and look cute.
I cannot believe people just sit back and think IGN and Jessica Chobot are fine when clearly having an IGN journalist put in a game is clearly a conflict of interest for the company. Of course she'll defend it. She'll defend it to the death cause it made her, IGN and BioWare some nice money.
go lick a PSvita chobot... no one cares about you...
I actually forgot she was in the game most of the time until I ran into the storage room where she was kept. also she looked weird, she has these strange big cheeks like a hamster or could be kidney disease. anyway people have a right to complain when an ending is as rushed and poorly thought out as that was, but I don't agree with them just changing it to suit the fans and I don't think Bioware will do that, as they have planned all along to add a DLC ending. Which is a whole other peev with gamers.
Butterface, ugly bitch.
Exactly, posting articles like this and people talking about her will only add on to the sh1tstorm. Sure she's attractive, but she ain't no Princess Peach.
I've never had a problem with her. She seems like she legitimately loves the industry, which to me, is a bonus, especially when you have so many women trying to market themselves as 'hot geek babes'. IGN's recent video asking porn stars what their favourite game was much more embarrassing than anything Chobot said or did. Geek culture is now a big money making industry and there are so many attractive women trying to capitalise on it by pretending they are a part of the culture, at last Chobot actually seems sincere about her part in it.
My Sheperd got it in, then I kicked her off the Normady 2.
IGN needs to get rid of her. She is really just an annoying person.
jessica chobot in mass effect was worse ever compared to the ending of mass effect 3!
Anyone notice that extra "p"?
Just kick her ass off the ship No more crappy voice acting and make room for that arcade I always wanted =D
I accidentally pushed her out of the airlock on the Normandy. I swear i didn't see her standing there..
Imagine a typical fishing scene. Fisherman => Shepard Ocean => Space Fish => Reapers Bait => Ms. Allers on a thread And later that day Shepard and his crew had some crunchy Reaper Gumbo.
@Roccetarius so somebody took yaviks advice then. hehe yavik says to shepard "I dont like that jessic chobot on the normandy, CHUCK IT OUT THE AIR LOCK"
Apologies that come only after people get all pissed about things are never sincere and only come at the request of an editor to try and keep the peace. I don't really care about them. I also don't even know what she said, or care.
Who is Jessica Chobot and why is she out of the kitchen?
I think people are tired of seeing those cute girls being successful, somehow, thanks to their bodies. A guy always need to fight, to work hard, to keep his wife, to have money,to buy a car, to give a decent life to his wife,etc etc. Every day is a 24h combat. If the guy stops working 1 month, his wife moves to the neighbor's, will divorce and ask him l the money he had, his house he payed during 20 years, everything. Not being sexist, but for a woman, you don't have to wake up at 5am and go to work. If she wants, all she have to do is wearing some sexy clothes, use their charm, spread the legs(after all, not that hard, one diq is one diq..), and there you have. Only because the girl/woman is cute, everything becomes easier. And people simply are tired of seeing these plastic dolls succeed, with 0 effort, a nice body and face is the passport for success. I didn't know this chobot at all, 1 month ago.she's cute, for my tastes.don't care if she works for ign or CNN. The question is: if she had taken a picture of her, with a black burka or niqbab, holding some salad and oranges, instead of licking a psp, would someone ask her to play in a mass effect game ? The answer is NO. She had the chance to succeed? Nice. The problem, is not what chobot is, but what she represents: Whether she wants it or not, she is a gamer or not, being cute helped her.just like the thousand women that succeed, the body is a tool. And people are sick of seeing all these botoxed and siliconed women succeed, women that would be working at a McDonald or snackbar, if they weighted 240 lbs and had the face like Seal. Sorry chobot, this is internet, this is the society, you may play games 24 h a day, you can be graduated like Obama, you may speak 15 languages, the only thing people will think about, when hearing the word 'chobot', is a pink tongue over a bit of black plastic.
Voted Well Said as crazy as all of that was
