Blue Mary in The King of Fighters ‘99. Art by Shinkiro.
I do like a lady with a six-pack. And to be honest, Mary here is sporting a physique I would not have expected to see from a Japanese console fighter, which as a genre is somewhat infamous for its wildly improbable breast physics.

FUSE is an upcoming video game from Electronic Arts, another in a long line of four player cooperative shooter games that tries to find a gimmick to stand out from the crowd. I won’t go into that gimmick here, since that’s not what interests me about the game, but rather, that, for the first time that I can recall, the four member team is equally split between male and female characters, instead of having the one lone woman (to go with the usual one black male character). Think Borderlands, Borderlands 2, Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2, Dead Island, ad infintum (until now!).
And for you Commander Shepard/Liara T’soni shippers, I should note that Naya (left) is voiced by Jennifer Hale and Izzy (right) is voiced by Ali Hillis.
