Suicide Girls has posted a spread of the model “Alaina” dressed as Master Chief in celebration of today’s launch of the Xbox 360 title, Halo 3. Of course, what you see above is all you can see if don’t have a Suicide Girls membership, but in some ways it’s just good to know it exists. The entire spread is fittingly called, “Finish the Fight.”
The idea of Master Chief (or at least one of the Spartans) being a woman isn’t new: one of my favorite fan videos ever, “Haloid,” imagined a world where Samus Aran from Metroid fought a female Master Chief. (I’m spoiling it just a little, but if you haven’t seen it by now…)
I’ve embedded the video below. The video screwed up the layout in Firefox, so here’s the link.
But about that there Halo 3! I’ve got a copy reserved at my local Gamestop that I’m going to go pick up today. (Screw that “waiting at midnight” crap.) None of the other Boingers are really gamers, so I was thinking maybe some of you guys might be interested in a little pick-up game this evening. I’m not ready to jump into the player vs. player battles quite yet, but I’d love a little of that four-player co-op.
My gamertag is “Joelev”. If you want to play this evening, give a shout in the comments.
