This February the cult classic, Beyond Good and Evil, makes a return to the console in HD. Although critically acclaimed, it was commercial flop, leaving those who did play the game clamoring for a sequel. And, unless you are content to play nothing but FPS-inspired sequels for the foreseeable future of disc-based games you’ll want to support the dwindling number of quality, novel experiences like this one.
Anya Stroud should be a name that’s incredibly familiar to Gears of War fans. The daughter of deceased war hero Helena Stroud, Anya is anything but your average “video game chick“. Spending the first two games in the background, Anya is only a few weeks away from her big moment in the spotlight as one of many new playable female COG soliders. In an interesting bit of cross marketing, Epic Games has teamed up with FHM magazine to bring you this Anya inspired photo shoot starring model Anna Simon. While seeing Anya in her full COG armor complete with lancer is pretty damn cool, there are some other photos in the set that don’t really suit her character. Do you feel like EPIC went a bit too far and “sexualized” one of their strong female characters? Or do you feel like their teaming with FHM is just all in good fun? Let us know! Credit (Egotastic)
