So you are away, I copied the title of this video direct from YouTube so the fact that SEXY is in all caps was their decision not mine.
Also it should be noted that I'm posting this video without having watched it. It just popped up in my subscription feed and it's mostly relevant to my Overwatch interests.
This is 1000% no surprise to me. Blizzard has been very active at trying to squash all the porn associated with Overwatch, League of Legends and World of Warcraft. I mean they're not doing a great job of it. It's still everywhere, but I'm just plugged into the digital art scene enough to know that they'll get your tumblr or twitter account shut down for a while. The funny thing to me here is that Playwatch wasn't porn, again I have no idea if the video points that out or not. Yes Playwatch cribbed their name from Playboy and the while the cover to the magazine (which is being generous, it was just a fanzine you could download as a pdf) did usually feature a character from Overwatch in a suggestive pose the inside of the magazine was pretty innocent. It had interviews with cosplayers, and some fan art and articles on gameplay. Typical fan-zine kind of stuff.
My guess here is that the magazine was just a bit too polished for Blizzard's liking. It certainly looked like a real magazine and while it was free the creators were "cashing in" on Blizzard's intellectual property. I'm never a big fan of some big fancy moneypants corporation getting all bent out of shape over fan created stuff but at the end of the day they own Overwatch not the guy drawing D.Va in a her underwear.
PUBG Corporation(PUBG Corp.) has collaborated with Battery, the fast-growing independent creative advertising agency based in Hollywood, and RSA Films to create an ambitious global campaign for the launch of the Sony Playstation4 version of the popular digital game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. The centerpiece of the campaign is Pan-demonium, a long-form social film produced by RSA Films and directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, whose work includes the feature film Kong: Skull Islandand a variety of high-profile commercial campaigns.
Pan-demoniumis an action-packed, funny, highly choreographed and relentless fight film that recreates the visceral excitement of the game in live action with an ensemble of actors including Jason Mitchell of Straight Outta Comptonand Nick Robinson of Jurassic World. The film features the cinematography of Chung-Hoon Chung (Old Boy) and the stunt direction of Robert Alonzo (Deadpool).The campaign includes :60, :30 and :15 versions of the film, which will air on television around the world.
“Beginning with our game, the goal has always been to work towards becoming an all-encompassing entertainment franchise,” said Richard Kwon, CMO, PUBG Corp. “Having Jordan bring us a step closer to that has been a delight to see.”
"Bringing this iconic game to life was such an amazing opportunity for us,” said Scott Brown Partner/VP Creative Director at Battery. “And working with Jordan and his team of cinematic legends like Rob Alonzo and Chung Hoon Chung was a dream come true."
“When approaching this campaign, I wanted to capture and translate the individual moments of emotion the gameplay elicits from a player when experiencing PUBG,” Vogt-Roberts said. “I wanted gamers and fans of the title to watch this piece and feel that the filmmaker and team behind this spot understood the authentic fun that has made PUBG a piece of the zeitgeist. I wanted to find a way to bottle that magic and the excitement, kinetic rush, and idiosyncrasies of PUBG for its fans, while also making it accessible to new viewers, whether they’ve played PUBG before or not.”
