    its funny as well, as every time i saw booth babes, there were loads of people standing around getting pictures taken with them, so clearly people liked them.
    They were being ironic and hence satirising the misogyny inherent in the industry, get with it grandad.

    Went on the Sunday, only ones I saw were the Nvidia girls, then again, I wasn't allowed in the 18+ zone. :L

    This was my first expo and one of the first things I saw when I walked into the 18+ area was the Virgin Gaming girls. Instantly made me uncomfortable and I was tempted to just leave. If companies feel like they need the girls there then, imo, its just like them saying 'Well, ok our products aren't great so we're using implied sex to sell it' If your product's good enough it'll sell regardless, especially at an Expo!!

    I'm not a prude but either keep it fair & have half naked girls AND guys, or don't have either.

    You are a very sensitive little flower. The booth babes were not ideal, but it was a very small part of an otherwise very friendly and inclusive show.

    A show that had DOA5 and tekken, with its downloadable bikinis in full force, out for all the family to play.

    I think all this just means that rauper didn't pull this year.

    There were a few girls around Company of Heroes II also, who went so far as to have QR codes on the 'back pocket' of said hotpants. I found it a little unnecessary, personally.

    So is that what was so outrageous? I remain calm.

    Someone needs to find me some shots of girls that I can get properly outraged over.

    So hang on, is it still ok if I get my tits out?

    My only complaint is that you need to insist on some more convincing space marines. Those dudes wouldn't have gotten in the TA, let alone the Colonial Marines.

    I just made a judgement about someone based on their personal appearance.

    Fair play for totally missing her head out, unnecessary appendage that it is.

    Those QR codes, you have to get right up close with a steady hand to photograph them don't you?

    It's your event you can do what the fuck you like. If you want booth babes, have them, if you don't, don't. Apologizing because some minority somewhere might have had their noses put out of joint just smacks over-sensitive PR and no backbone. Same goes for CVG, they should've told the people who were offended to fucking do one and read another website. Or maybe start their own one.

    Sorry, but it's true.

    What if we redress the balance, so to speak? Keep the booth babes but include some booth hunks for the girls? Like the guy on the Mountain Dew station, he was built like Marcus Fenix

    @rauper I felt like just PMing you or one of the guys about it, but figured this way was more fun!

    Oh and you missed one :)
