While this is in no way a review, I feel the need to gush just a tiny bit about Lollipop Chainsaw. Because until I started playing it, I didn’t realize how much of a gaming funk I was truly in. I have a stack of games sitting in my geek vault just staring at me, begging to be played. I’ve dusted off a couple but to mostly “Meh” feelings of apathy. Even the mega hyped Max Payne 3 did nothing for me, nary a whisper of giddy excitement escaped my lips during the blood soaked but short-lived play session.
The last game I really dived into was Mass Effect 3, maybe the ending crushed my soul more than I knew. As a rabid collector of games I’ve found a few choice titles at insane prices. I’ve shoved them aside as my initial happiness dissipated in a swell of blah hitting my brain. Except I didn’t recognize my problem, that is until I fired up the over the top Lollipop Chainsaw.
Lollipop is a game so crazy, so in love with the idea of a zombie hunting cheerleader that nothing stops being fun. Playing through the beginning of Juliet Starling’s quest to right the horrible zombie wrong, I get the feeling that the game itself is in on the joke and revels in it. The crushed together elements of action based survival horror, sugary sweet sparkle sparkle girly moments and laugh out loud humor made me remember something I had clearly forgotten – games are supposed to be fun.

Remember a while back when Gearbox was searching for a real life Lilith? Well Warner Bros is taking a cue from that and is searching for their own real life hottie. This campaign is aimed at picking someone who strikes an uncanny resemblance to Juliet Starling from the upcoming Lollipop Chainsaw. The search has found 15 wannabe heroines and now we, yes WE, get to vote on who we think should rock the Juliet outfit! We’re talking blonde cosplaying babes wearing not much of anything, all in an attempt to curry favor with us geeks. What’s not to love?
If you hop over to IGN, you can look at all 15 of the hopefuls. Each girl has a video up, explaining why they should be Juliet. I voted but I won’t tell you who I voted for. Just know there is one babe in particular that rightfully deserves to star in promotional material, and videos for the game. Just my honest opinion and all. We the geeks get to vote on important stuff, that’s what’s really important!
Lollipop Chainsaw comes out sometime this year and lets gamers play as Ms. Starling as she battles the scores of undead. Wielding the titular chainsaw, she mops up the zombiefied remains of her fellow classmates and citizens. Pretty much like a proper Buffy game without Buffy. Hit the break, peep the search video and then do your part. Go vote!
