This seems like...such a fake "gamer." She's not a "Real" gamer -- she's one whose "job" it is to be one. A false identity that ubisoft is using in their marketing. Sure she can like games and she's obviously good at them, no one is arguing that. However the fact remains that all of her answers seem so absolutely fake and pre-written that I have a hard time believing she TRULY likes what she has to do. I'm quite curious as to how much she gets paid to put on this act.Her answer to the Cataclysm is what got me to thinking: "This is a bunch of bullcrap." Then again, she put it best:"I'm not sponsored; I am employed." You can tell big time.

That's all it is, a marketing gimmick. Sure it's nice to know that there are serious female gamers, but this isn't the best way about it.

So what constitutes a "real" gamer?I would figure that since Valkyrie's background was being part of the PMS clan before being a Fragdoll would indicate that she is a gamer first, and was tapped to be part of Ubisoft's marketing ideal second.Look, I'm not denying that the Fragdolls handpick there members with a bit of bias towards the pretty and glamorous, but most of the field they choose from come from a very competitive (gaming) background. Let's not label "fake" gamers as people who utilize their passions for success in the business world. That's kinda unfair.

Jealous troll is jealous...

Has nothing to do with being jealous...hell I'm a guy. I can definitely appreciate a good looking woman, if that's what you think my reason for posting what I did was, then you're sorely mistaken.Look at all those answers and tell me they don't sound forced and/or rehearsed? It has little (or nothing more like it) to do with the field that she is even employed in (professional gaming) or the fact that she was a gamer before, that's fine. But tell me with a straight face that Ubisoft didn't just hire a bunch of good looking women with their label on it to sell products? If you think otherwise you're deluding yourself. Sex may sell but being fake does not.Sorry guys. Fap over her all you want, that's what Ubisoft hired her for.

Her answers aren't fake, they are professional. When someone asks you about your company you are given an opportunity to help convey your company's message. Would you prefer that she said "It's great, love my job" or something else as pointless?She is a professional gamer being interviewed about her profession; anything she says is going to reflect on Ubisoft.

Amy Brady is an avid gamer, and a skilled one at that. The draw of the Frag Dolls has been the authentic, if meaninglessly rare, combination of nerdiness and catalog-model looks.All the same, Ubisoft's pitch-group has weakened its appeal by contradicting its original premise and embodying, at several points, one of the stereotypes it claimed to be refuting. Back in 2004, the girls openly declined opportunities to capitalize on their attractiveness such as a swimsuit series. By 2007, the group was fully exploiting aesthetics, appearing in a PCXL feature complete with a Cosmo-style pout on the cover and a frat-boy interviewer informing the reader of having doused himself with Axe body spray.There's nothing wrong with that kind of publicity per se unless the objective is to accomplish gender-blindness. You'd be surprised how many of us, in terms of gaming, make no distinction between men and women. Continually emphasizing one's sex and appearance, however, defeats the purpose and actually countervails feminism.

"Sex may sell but being fake does not. Sorry guys. Fap over her all you want, that's what Ubisoft hired her for."Oh yeah, girl. The way you stand there in a pair of jeans and a t-shirt gets me so randy. That's right...tempt me by putting your hands on your hips and stuff. You really know how to use sex to get me all hot and stuff.(?)

My stance:She is a gamer, hard-core and very respectable. Her answers though? Left a bit of a sour taste. Seemed like they went a bit off topic at places. For example the question about age and being a hardcore gamer turned into a response for her dream job. This makes me want a Mila Kunis 15-minute though.
