Porn Star Joins Saint's Row 2 Team

image

Adult film star Tera Patrick is serving as a "special producer" for Saint's Row 2.

A post on the Saint's Row site shows a scantily-clad Tera Patrick, star of such underground hits as the Island Fever series, Best of the Breast and personal favorite Hogtied!, sporting a purple bikini while posing with artwork from THQ's Saint's Row 2.

Porn star Patrick will be "bringing her one-of-a-kind touch to the project." She served at THQ's Comic-Con booth meeting with fans and signing Saint's Row 2 merchandise.

More details on Patrick's involvement with development will be unveiled as the game approaches its October 14 launch. For entertainment in the meantime, THQ recommends gamers "see trailers of Tera Patrick's movies, visit www.teratrailers.com."

How insanely vague..... my only guess is that her 'one of a kind touch' will result in the game being at least an 18 rating.

I wonder if THQ is trying to beat Rockstar on the controversy race...

At least they chose a "decent pornstar".

Still, even though Saints Row jumps a kind of GTA bandwagon (seeing the first one reminded me of GTA:SA in its seetings and the characters' looks), at least in my eyes, I don't think adding a pornstar helps a game a lot...

Let's open the bets : will she help THQ include a real sex mini-game into the game (some Escapist contributors might finally have what they were looking for -I'm referencing the Escapist issue about eroticism and sex in videogames, but I couldn't look to the issue # again for the life of me right now), or just suggest pimps should have more half-naked hoes when they go shooting nizzles'n'da hood cuz this is how we do it ? (they should hire Snoop Dogg too, don't you think ?)

Anyway, I wonder what they're up to...

PS : I shouldn't have taken so much time polishing it, I lost the first place... ;p

Jade Raymond 2.0?

I keed, I keed. Honestly I'd say it was an attention grab, but it seems in keeping with the games sense of comedy. Hopefully the game is good, it certainly seems to be shaping up anyways.

Maybe she's just boosting morale for all the staff at THQ..... would be rather distracting though....

A gimmick and a publicity stunt but hey I look forward to SR2 not taking itself seriously and throwing whatever Porn Star related stuff is in the game, it looked like she was a playable character and I thought "clearly this can only help the game be more awesome" - unless they overload it with corny sex jokes, and phallic weapons, etc. etc. - but whatever, maybe we can get some other celebrity to work with the game to counter act it, like Samuel L. Jackson, we can add more to the "swearing budget".

I couldn't agree more. If it results in a banning or censoring in Oz then I'm going to fly over there and give the narrow-minded developers my 'one of a kind punch right to the face'.

'One of a kind touch' eh? Why doesn't that sound right?

So Saints Row have gone all out in copying GTA? Didn't Vice City have Jenna Jameson on board?

Why not after all, Jameson also did photos for a Jackson Guitars ad campaign, and B.C. Rich had Jasmine St-Claire pose for their 2006 guitars...

If she's willing to quit porn to be a normal human being fine.

Otherwise, she should get bent and go back to whoring herself.

she also should be capable of doing this job.

Heh.

Also known as: "Hey, we could do with some more eye candy around the office!"

Well I certainly wouldn't mind.

Jackpot> harsh aren't we ?

Non stop BJs for the game developers... Eh at least they will be more relaxed.

not really. Porn is nothing short of prostitution. Same dynamics.

In order to do a job, you need to be qualified to it.

If she isn't qualified (and I don't mean she has a degree and shit, I mean she has the necesarry skills and knowledge) she doesn't deserve the job. She is qualified to be a whore/porn actress, so she can go back to that instead.

Yeah, this is a great move towards taking the game industry seriously. This will shift the view of the media that games are just violent, sex filled child corrupting devil machines.

Yeah.

*cough*

Oh no! Now Saints Row 2 won't have all that class that people want so much!

Eh Im not really surprised by this. Hell if the whole "Mass Effect had greater sales because an in game sex scene was promied" is true, then wouldnt having a rather well known porn star representing your game at a convension filled to the brim with nerds have the same kind of effect? Hell just include a bonus disk with one of her movies on it and I garuntee you sales would skyrocket hehe (wonder what the exact words coming out of the ESRB's mouth would be on that one lol).

Looking at this news, I have to say 'Bwoaht?' - still, I suppose porn stars are people too, although the cynic in me says they did it just to get horny 16+'s to buy the game. Still, even though its a GTA clone, I liked Saints Row 1 - it didn't try just to copy exactly what GTA did and tried some new things of its own - in short, it was a 'good GTA clone', in my eyes at least. Although the dialog was wincing silly at times. I think they tried to do funny and serious at once with the predicatable outcome of neither working.

Whats wrong with prostitution?

See, I knew that lady was crazy.

Don't bring that stuff into this topic, take it to PM.

If the movie industry can have pseudo-porn, we can have Saint's Row and still end up being taken seriously. I hope.

Maybe the old farts at the ESRB are all raging Tera Patrick fans, who knows ? :p

At least porn stars are fairly more aware of the hypocrisy that surrounds us.

Hopefully Patrick is used better then Jenna Jameson was in GTA: Vice City. In my opinion she could of offered more.

Indubitably
I guess we will wait and see what that touch brings to the game though.

An AO rating and another round of publicity for senator Hillary Clinton and a shot at Jack Thompson getting his job back.

Also, is it wierd that when I clicked on that post and only tried to figure out what gun she was holding...and if it was bedazzled

First thing came to mind: Who?

Prediction- A publicity stunt that'll end in EPIC FAIL.

bringing her one-of-a-kind touch
Also, I have an exclusive interview that I have in my possession.

Tera Patrick:
Teheheheeh; I just love putting women in thongs into games, because games make me moist. But you're going to step out of that power armor if you want to sample my one-of-a-kind touch; you'll rust too much.

This requires more research. Lots more research.

oh i think the job of the producer would be to sell the damn game and you'll find she is quite adept at that.... "degrees and shit" don't sell games.... all that THQ now needs to do is make some sort of announcement to the effect "achievements and secret unlockables include pictures/videos of tera patrick" the game will get an A and sell like such hot cakes that GTA 4 and 2k would hug each other and cry in a corner....
//plus all this resentment at her being a whore, is a bit too strong-worded i think.

I lol'd

wahi, I think you summed it up right.

This is hilarious...I mean did the developers decide instead of paying their employees there was a better alternative ;)

But perhaps we are all just being a bit to harsh. I mean maybe Tera Patrick does have something to offer.

We all know the greatest actors are porn stars...
