Hook Up with GameCrush (Play Video Games With a Pretty Girl)
GameDaily.com ^ | 3/23/10 | Chris Buffa| More

New online site links players and sexy ladies for some Halo 3.

Online gamers know what happens when a female (or a dude pretending to be female) joins a match. Every sex-starved dude pounces on her like a dog in heat. She doesn't even need to speak if her handle contains words like "chick" or "lady". You can guarantee that at least one tongue-wagging guy will flood her inbox with messages or attempt to harass flirt his way into her heart, completely unaware that she's probably a hideous monster. On that note, it's tough competing with all that testosterone, and even tougher finding a hot gamer girl, but that's about to change, courtesy of GameCrush, the world's first website that hooks you up with hotties who can handle two analog sticks at the same time.

GameCrush connects you with a digital world of attractive (and let's face it, not so attractive) people who love to get their game on. Instead of battling six guys at once to win someone's affection, you enjoy a limited one-on-one session where you're the center of attention, both on the Xbox 360 and PC, with PlayStation 3 in the future. While not a dating site per se, it's a way for you to meet like-minded people of the opposite sex who enjoy the same video games as you do. Looking for a curvaceous and smoking hot babe who enjoys it rough in Grand Theft Auto IV? GameCrush makes it happen.

Here's how it works. There are two types of people on the website: Players and PlayDates. Players join the site for free and can instantly search PlayDate profiles. These profiles include pictures, the types of games the PlayDate enjoys, physical stats, turn ons/turn offs, personal schedule (the time(s) they play), their game mood (flirty or dirty, or flirty and dirty) and feedback scores comprised of the following categories: overall, hotness, gaming skill, flirtiness, dirtiness. Profiles will also include video, audio and blogs, if the PlayDate chooses to use those features.

From there, you contact a PlayDate and agree to an online session, but wait, there's a catch. First, you have to be 18 years of age or older to join, and second, you pay to play. In order to have that spicy Gears of War 2 deathmatch, you'll need to deposit credits into your GameCrush account. It costs $8.25 for 500 credits, $16 for 1,000, $28 for 2,000 and $67.50 for 5,000; GameCrush accepts Visa, MasterCard, AMEX and PayPal. To put this in perspective, it costs 400 credits for an eight-minute console GameDate. Casual GameDates on PC cost 400 credits for the first six minutes and 60 credits each additional minute, which reminds us of phone sex, not that we partake in such debauchery.

After coughing up the dough for an Xbox 360 session, you'll receive the PlayDate's Gamertag and enjoy private chat until the GameDate concludes. PC ups the ante with private video chat, where you're free to show whatever you want, so long as your PlayDate agrees to it; we suggest opting for strip billiards.

On the flipside, PlayDates can pocket some cash by racking up GameDates, with the opportunity to make $30 an hour or more, depending on how in demand they are. It's in their best interests, therefore, to spruce up their profiles with lots of description and slutty pretty photos.

At the moment, it appears that GameCrush only supports a handful of games. On the Xbox 360 side, there are the usual suspects, such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Halo 3, Gears of War 2 and Grand Theft Auto IV. On the casual front, there's checkers, billiards, Tic-Tac-Toe and what appears to be a Battleship style game. Keep in mind that this appears to be the extent of PC support at the moment, so don't expect World of Warcraft.

At this point, of course, it remains to be seen whether players (we prefer to think of them as playas) will flock to GameCrush, especially Xbox Live Gold subscribers who already fork over lots of cash to enjoy Microsoft's online service. And despite co-founder Eric Strasser informing us that the website prohibits advertising, we've already seen a user hocking her personal site that contains x-rated pictures and webcam. But who knows? Perhaps you'll meet your soul mate over a furious round of Gears, or maybe your PlayDate was a transsexual the whole time. Hey, them's the breaks in this crazy, love-starved world.

The whole point of being obsessed with video games is that you don’t have to think about the ladies that you will never get to meet.

I’m sure mass quantities of Red Bull were involved too. That or the founder hooked up with a female player who turned out to be a guy. Or both.

“I am a girl”

Sure! That’s what YOU say. At this point my brother would probably ask you out on a date though. ;-)

“and the men are disgusting.”

Well, you are fairly discriminating. I apologize for doubting your gender ma’am.

I’ve played a videogame or two in my time.

There are better places to look for chicks than videogames. There are much better things to do with chicks than play videogames ... but, most of the hardcore gamer-type guys I’ve met would know what to do with a girl if they caught one.

Unplug the controller, take a shower, move out of your mom’s basement ... and THEN look for a girl.

You gotta be s#@#@ing me. People pay for that?

If I'm going to spend $70.00 on a lady, it'll be someone I know quite well.

At 1000 credits for $28.00, then it would cost $11.20 for the 400 credits, then $1.68 per minute afterwards. Buy stock in this venture, because it is a money maker. It’s like 1-900 phone business... any call could cost $50 or $100 bucks, especially those long tough exciting games!

“Think your % is a little low...”

Yeah, you’re probably right. Consider that this is a fossil’s estimate. My first PC had a choice 16k or 32k. But no matter what, it beat a stack of Holerith cards.

I had a brother-in-law that was all set to get engaged to someone he met on the internet (turned out to be a Canadian guy). He had a ring purchased already (true story).

Guys lose about 60 IQ points when they get on the web.

My only experience with this type of thing is kids getting on Grandma’s computer and running up a bill for any one of a number of these types of rip off sites. I’m the guy they are telling about the nightmare ISP bills or recently, they can charge your cell phone. My only advice after disciplining the child, is to “invest in the site to get your money back”.

Got to admit: Gamers are some crazy rude people, I play a lot of online shooters (Call of Duty's, Socoms, etc) and some of the stuff I hear is just unbelievable. Girls get abused, not by me, I'm pretty nice to everyone. I have a couple of females (wife's of some guys I play with). They just gaff it all off, don't let it bother them.

Funnest night ever was election night: I got on after Ohio went down do to depression, everyone was in the lobby (Socom Confrontation), everyone was talking about the election, got to admit some funny comment by people unfiltered by political correctness on both sides.

Actually, after I met my future wife, I pretty much gave up gaming - computer, board, and RPG.
When you have a girlfriend / fiance / wife, there are things you BETTER be doing other than playing video games. Your sweetheart deserves a LOT more attention than your games.

Strangely enough, I bought my first game console after I got married, but hardly ever use it - it was for my girls.

I’m a woman who plays WoW and I’ve never had any issues with the guys on there. Maybe they just assume that I’m a guy in a girl avatar because. Most are.... I don’t know. The aggravation that does exist rolls off my back.

Just logged off of WoW after our dungeon’s tank and one of the DPS got into an... e-peen measuring contest and deliberately wiped the group during a boss fight.

Oh well. Next up. :)

You have “Modern Warfare 2’’? Excellent game. I’ve gotten it recently and finished it this week-end. Amazing plot twist in “Loose Ends’’. Stunned the heck out of me. I’m sorry to hear you’ve had problems with the cretins online.
