>Welp, I’m going to be too busy for the next several days to post anything here, so I thought I’d post a link-roundup. I’ve been collecting links about booth babes for possible future posts, so I thought I’d share them here for your edification. I’ll have more to say on the subject at some point after I return.
E3 Booth Babes
(2006) E3 Bans booth babes
The Best of E3’s 2010 Booth Babes. (I love how in every picture, this guy has the same douche-y smile on his face. I certainly hope this is the closest this creep ever gets to touching real women. Yech.)
Interview with a booth babe (IGN really asks the tough question! Way to be awesome journalists, guys!)
In defense of booth babes (Women should have the freedom to dress in skimpy costumes and get paid not nearly enough money to be pawed at and ogled by mouth-breathing men. Anyone who disagrees is a communist and hates freedom!)
Games marketing at E3. (Notice how all the women in these photos are babes and how almost all the men are execs/devs giving talks?)
Tokyo Game Show
Booth babes at Tokyo Game Show. (This guy repeatedly mentions how he’s “against booth babes”, but all his babe photos are posed… Not sure what to think.)
Broken and Destroyed Booth Babe (Now with horrific comments!)
Booth babes at China Joy. (Booth babes in cages?? WTF??)
PAX has banned booth babes in the past, but apparently they’re reconsidering.
