When it comes to love, I don’t like to play games.
But when it comes to video games, it’s a whole `nother story.
Once in a while, I get sucked in to really silly mobile app games – the latest one being Kim Kardashian’s called Kim Kardashian: Hollywood
Don’t you just love those tips that flash at the beginning of the game? She went from a pop star’s brother (Brandy‘s bro Ray-J), to a football player (Reggie Bush), to a NBA player (Kris Humphries), to one of hip hop’s biggest names today (Kanye West). The goal of the game — and I guess Kim’s life — is to climb up the social ladder: try to go from being an E-lister to an A-lister. Apparently, Kim Kardashian is an A-lister. Well, it is her game so she can do and say whatever she wants haha.
Here I am doing a photo shoot with a really famous photographer. I became an A-lister after playing the game on and off for about 5 days. Haha! Sana kaya ko rin mag crop top IRL.
So the game is very silly but.. It’s a game. It’s fun. There’s even a character who tries to bring you down. Her name is Willow Pape and from what I’ve read online, she’s based on Paris Hilton. Yep, this game had me Googling gossip I never heard of before. Apparently Kim K and Paris were BFFs and then they stopped being BFFs. LOL.
I must not have been paying attention – How could I have missed this?! Are Paris and Nicole Richie still friends? LOLJK NO ONE CARES.
Anyway, I currently follow @kimklogic on Twitter and it’s so funny. You’ll have to play the game to get some of the jokes though.
Just in case you’re playing the game also, this used to really piss me off. My dates kept dissing my outfits so I did some research (IKR na-affect ako sa insults di naman cute yung dinedate ko) and you see that bar on the lower left side of the screen cap above? The one that says 5/21? You can go buy clothes with hearts on them for dating and the ones with stars for photo shoots and appearances. I wish having friends in the game actually mattered because I’d ask you to add me. But I don’t think it makes a difference. Either way, just in case you want to be friends with an A-lister (hahaha) my game center ID is saabmagalona.
We think Kim Kardashian is a joke but she owns 45% of the game and it’s projected to make $200 million this year. That’s a LOT of money. I would never buy any of the in-app stuff for sale – I’m not that crazy. Haha! The thing about Kim Kardashian is that her existence both annoys and fascinates us. She got famous off a sex tape and now she’s worth so much money. I’m not one to judge a person based on their past, but it would really help if she tried to use her fame for something positive. It’s great that she’s “being herself” but hey, Kim, why not try to “be your best self?” I can talk to her cos we’re friends in the game..
The game is not quite like the Spike Jonze movie Being John Malkovich but it might be the closest thing to living another person’s life. Next to The Sims, of course. Oh and Jim plays 2K14 and he’s the head coach – it’s pretty cool, he meets with team owners to negotiate and trade players. Ah, technology.
Now excuse me, I’ve got to fly to New York and meet up with Kim for fashion week. One tweet from Kim gives me 1 million new fans. Cray.
