If you are a woman, and you want to be a mover and shaker in the game industry, this is what you have to shake.

Thanks Ubisoft. Of all the major game publishers, you've been the one that has put serious money behind the promotion of women* in the games industry.

Pictured above we have Jade (Isn't it a lovely name? Mmmm Jade. How lovely), standing in front of the Assasin's Creed team at Ubisoft.

Over my nine years in game development I've never been at a loss to find role models: from Stevie Case, to the Frag Dolls (thanks again to you, URSoft), to that shopgirl Eidos tot around to front Tomb Raider PR, and now this chick here (what's her name? Jade, I think it is).

And such pretty role models they've always been too. With sexy thin young women leading the charge, it is surely only a matter of time before us fat old ugly slags get the acknowledgement and the career advancement we deserve.

As we watch our male peers welcome these beautiful girls into their PR photographs and their industry events with open arms (and sweaty palms), saying how much they value the contribution of women in game development...we smile on benignly, graciously, winningly, our snowy white teeth glittering in the moonlight.

For shame, Ubisoft management, what a pack of cunts you are.

Hey, you're not a fat, old, ugly, slag; if thats what you're implying. And for the record, I would so hire you.

For all you know, Patrick, I am!

Thanks for the hypothetical recruitment, btw.

Are you sure Jade hasn't been photoshopped into that picture?

No, I saw your pic on some social networking profile, and that description does not suit the pattern my eyes recieved.

You're welcome.
