PSXE Poll Update: Chloe Wins Beauty Pageant
Granted, she may have had an unfair advantage because Uncharted 2: Among Thieves just released, but even so, I think y'all made the right choice.
We've already seen plenty of delectable virtual females on our TV screens this generation but clearly, none can touch that smoky sensuality of the toned yet still feminine Chloe Frazer in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. Maybe it's the accent, or the large firm chest, or the attitude, or the exotic face...or maybe it's just that ass that has gotten more attention than most other full characters in games. Whatever the reason, Chloe easily outstripped the second-place Nariko, that flame-haired beauty from Heavenly Sword. The unrealistically curvaceous hotties from the Dead or Alive franchise eked out a third place finish, just beating out the once indomitable Lara Croft (who just hasn't been as popular in this generation). Meryl from Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots and Sheva from Resident Evil 5 also had strong showings and I have to admit, I liked Meryl right from the start.
But we must return to more important things this week and this time, we're focusing on the Western release of Final Fantasy XIII. That anagram says we can expect an announcement on November 13, and we're all on pins and needles...the evidence certainly points towards an earlier-than-expected launch in North America, but what do you say? Let's hear it.
