About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Why else would anyone who joins the Alien Army be granted access to the mothership, instead of being left on Earth?"

"Destroy All Humans is one of the most anticipated titles of 2005 and is another example of THQ's growing presence in the core gamer market," said Peter Dille, senior vice president, worldwide marketing, THQ. "The game has a style and feel all its own, and we've been focused on delivering a marketing campaign as original as the title itself."

In addition to the inside track to the invasion, consumers who enlist in the Alien Army receives a personal e-mail account, exclusive game information and opportunities to win gift cards, games and much more. For more information on the video game or how to join the Alien Army, visit
