For the gamer who has everything. Character skins (and more) for Unreal Tournament designed by (and based on) former pornstar Asia Carrera. NSFW.

I'd rather use a character that strikes fear in the heart of all gamers: Clippy.

When did she become a *former* porn star?

waxpancake, you mean clippy?

asia carrera has always struck me as downright ugly.

It might be worth noting that Asia Carrera made the skins herself. How many porn actresses can put that on their resumes?

Lame post.

Why? Because it's not an op-ed from The Times or The Post discussing the latest Bush-crimes? C'mon now. MetaFilter is a weblog, and that is an interesting link. Being serious all the time is hazardous to your health.

Something tells me that if you're downloading game skins of porn stars, there's a lot in this world you that's not within your reach.

Why?

I dig it. The world needs a laugh. The fact she did them herself is just kind of cool. You could be fragging a porn star!

One of the most fun ways to play Vice City is as Candy Suxx.

Hey guys, porn is lame and bitching about things is cool.

Let's be positive. This is cool, we're all cool, and living life in a good way is cool.

Sexual game skins, what is that all about? Is it good, or is it whack?
posted by angry modem at 11:11 PM on January 13, 2004


Why?

Because you're not doing cool things like hanging out on websites all day trying to solve the world's problems. That's why!

I've got no intention of following that link, but I do have a few UT skins installed. I just find it hilarious to turn a corner and find Bender, Homer Simpson, the Pink Panther and Trinity all blowing hell out of each other.

A porstar cum game skin designer?
I think I might be in love.

Asia talks about her geekness here

UnrealCore: Ever played UT Naked?
Asia: Yeah, doesn't everyone?

Thanks for the interview link magullo, I enjoyed reading it despite the fact that I've never played Unreal or seen an Asia Carrera film. I may now have to do both - just to aid my understanding of the interview, obviously.

...Bender, Homer Simpson, the Pink Panther and Trinity all blowing hell out of each other.

I'm sorry, given we were talking about porn stars, that gave me an image that is quite different than the normal Unreal Tournament experience, where you just try to kill each other.

Is this an expansion pack? Complete with "wakka wakka" soundtrack? Ghugle, I don't even want to think about the powerups.

I actually found the whole site quite amusing. Apart from her rather unusual choice of job, she seems like a completely normal geek. In as much as geeks can be seen as normal, anyway.

It makes me so sad when porn stars talk about their boyfriends or girlfriends.

It makes me so sad when porn stars talk about their boyfriends or girlfriends.

Just because you don't share the same ideas about relationships and sexual behavior? That's pretty narrow minded and judgmental.

Asia Carrera seems like a bright intelligent regular girl who happens to work in the sex trade. It's really easy to just make assumptions about her because of your ideas about porn. "Boogie Nights" is a movie, as great as it was.

I think that Asia is pretty swell, as girls with fake boobs go. She's..urm...multi-talented.

McBain, on late night Dutch tv, we're often treated to interviews with porn stars. Generally speaking, they come across as subpar when it comes to, you know, the stuff up there. Nowhere near the interview with Asia that I linked earlier. Asia, and the also Amerasian uber-hottie Tera Patrick have always claimed that they work in porn because, due to their ethnicity, they cannot get better-paid jobs in mainstream modeling.

Then again, maybe the ones that look dumb are still in character and reaching out to their (apparently also subpar) intended audience. Comeone should tell them that it would seem like the smarter porn stars have longer careers.

Ooooops - please excuse the obviously Freudian slip ....

As my porn-afficionado band mate never stops pointing out: Ms Carrera is a member of Mensa. At that point, I usually like to annoy him by telling him that Mensa is an org that people that didn't go to elite schools join so they can feel better about themselves. This really seems to piss him off. I guess he got rejected by Mensa as well as Dartmouth. :-) /offtopic
