Strange things have been happening in the universe lately. One of those strange things included Olivia Munn (one of my favorite people from the video game world) joining The Daily Show, which happens to be my primary source for real-world news. Her debut as “Senior Asian Correspondent” was probably one of the most entertaining moments The Daily Show has shown us in months. I’m thrilled that she’s on The Daily Show now and hope her role continues well into the future. The world of nerd and news has finally come full circle!
After watching the show, I’m starting to wonder if there will be any limit to her career. I’d probably consider her a pretty good “comedic actress” and she’s probably the most recognized female in the video game world. I’m sure that most of you are fans and realize that she’s good for the industry. I’m a little concerned about how games are becoming “mainstream” but there’s little we can do about that now. We just have to go with the flow. We still have our nostalgia from gaming in the 1980s.
I’m highly curious to see what everyone else thinks about her new role on The Daily Show. Personally, I love the idea and it made one of my favorite shows on television even better. Post your ideas and comments below!
