Black Desert spokesperson Megan Fox talks about what the sandbox MMO can do for self-esteem

Last week we learned that actress Megan Fox is apparently a big fan of Black Desert, so it would stand to reason that she applies a lot of worth to playing the sandbox. Some of that thinking is elaborated on in a new video that asks what it means to be your true self — a reference to the tag line being used in upcoming videos promoting Black Desert’s PS4 launch.

According to Fox, playing Black Desert is not unlike a form of meditation — a way for people to visualize what they want for their real life. “You get to discover the qualities about yourself that you want to enhance,” says Fox in the video. “Maybe, at the moment, it’s something that’s only on the screen, but you can realize it’s something you can bring to life for real.” This especially extends to young girls in Fox’s mind, positing that playing Black Desert allows them to create a world where they feel comfortable and powerful. It’s an interesting point of view to say the least, and you can listen to it in full in the embed.

Considering Megan Fox has been the go-to pinup for eager young boys heading to their bunks for at least the last decade, I’d say that the marketers of BDO did their research well of the American market.

This appears to be an ad for plastic surgery using the character creator as a tool.

You get to discover the qualities about yourself that you want to enhance,” says Fox in the video. “Maybe, at the moment, it’s something that’s only on the screen, but you can realize it’s something you can bring to life for real.” This especially extends to young girls in Fox’s mind….

This would require Pearl Abyss to even be aware there are such things as streamers for their game.

For a minute there I thought she was a high profile CM…then I remembered she used to act or something. o.O

Does the low self esteem come before or after you try the enhancement system?

Reader

Presumably after, and also after you get dunked repeatedly for choosing the wrong class.

Okay, this made me laugh for so, so many reasons. None of which should find there way onto a gaming blog.

I’ll show myself out.

That desert wind was really giving her a hard time, but I’m glad she managed to push through and freestyle about being a girl on the internet in 2019.

This is so stupid and I love it. Keep it coming Pearl Abyss + Megan Fox.
