In defense of boobies

Let me preface this article by stating a few simple facts. I am a young, white, American male who consumes vast amounts of pornography. As such, I am occasionally drawn to depictions of the female form which are perhaps outsi...

Gallery: Welcome to G-Star 2012

Think of G-Star as Korea's Tokyo Game Show. This gaming expo, which I'm currently attending at the BEXCO in Busan, South Korea, runs through the weekend, and has already been pretty busy these last couple of workwee...

TGS: Enjoy this floor gallery while we fight the crowds

Today is the first public day of TGS 2012, which means that we're stuck plowing through a sea of people to get to the good stuff. We've snapped some pictures of cool things and other oddities that we thought you might like to see, including wrestling matches, idol concerts, and more.  We've also included pictures of the crowd itself. Scary, right?

TGS: I took on a booth girl at Hot Shots Golf 6 and lost photo
TGS: I took on a booth girl at Hot Shots Golf 6 and lost
by Dale North

Look, I'm pretty good at videogame golf. I'm a seasoned veteran when it comes to Korean golf MMO Pangya, but I'm not half bad at Hot Shots Golf either. I've been an avid player of the series for 15 years now, so I'd like to think I'm pretty skilled at it. In fact, I've spent so much time with the latest in the series, Hot Shots Golf World Invitational on the PlayStation Vita, that I invite competition with confidence. But when I took on a Sony booth attendant at a 9-hole match of the PS3 version of this game today at Tokyo Game Show, I lost miserably. 

I'm not sure if her adorable looks and sweet voice caught me off guard or something, but I was not at the top of my game today. I had no good excuse, as Minna no Golf 6 for the PS3 plays exactly like last year's Vita original, with the exact same button and stick mapping copied to the DualShock controller. Timing and controls are a perfect match, which should of had me feeling right at home. Instead, I was right in the bunkers.

Why GREE has the greatest booth at Tokyo Game Show

Seriously? This has to be a new record for the most booth girls ever at a gaming trade show. I can't imagine how much this many girls must have cost them, though I understand they have the money. Hats off, sirs.  Hit the jump to see a quick video walk-by of the GREE gals.

HAWP: The splendiferous, monumentous E3 2012 trilogy

Because Anthony was stuck rubbing his nuts on the Borderlands 2 booth for most of E3, it was up to Ash to get the Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? video content up this year. She manages to touch upon all the necessary bases: Papa ...

E3: Chest bumps with booth babes photo
E3: Chest bumps with booth babes
by Jonathan Holmes

I'm still not totally straight on the proper terminology here. Booth babe? Booth Companion? They both sound kind of creepy, which makes sense, as the whole concept of paying women to stand around at a videogame event so attendees can take pictures of themselves hugging them is kind of creepy. 

I asked some of these people if they wanted to chest bump, and a lot of them did. Watch for bonus cameos from professional Juliet Starling cosplayer Jessica Nigri, ex-Dtoid live streamer Pico Mause, the developers of this game about lemurs, and many more.

HAWP: Anthony Burch has no shame

So typical. Anthony Burch has a platform upon which he can share his insight into the value of videogames as a medium, yet he would rather throw all his credibility away for some cheap cheesecake exposure. He's not even all ...

EB Games Expo 2011: The booth babes

On some levels, I don't really understand why booth babes exist. Sure, I get the whole 'sex sells' angle but I'm positive if I ever spoke to a booth babe, she probably wouldn't be able to tell me just how many Dark Brotherhoo...

TGS: The lovely ladies of Tokyo Game Show

While I wish I could have stood around and looked at pretty girls all day, the Great Robot in the Sky sent me to Tokyo to write about videogames, so I had to enjoy them in passing, doing my best to snap a quick shot as I ran to my next appointment. These hastily snapped, semi-lit photos go against everything I've learned as a lifelong photo enthusiast. Forgive my quick and dirty job.

TGS: Before anything else, booth babes

Priorities, man. Sure, there's lots of games to see, but we need to get cosplay out of the way first.  The girls are lucky. I'm not sure if it's power saving measures or the humidity, but it's unbearably hot in the Makuh...

China tells booth babes to show less skin

Booth babes have become one of the attractions that people attending conventions and expos expect to see. They are sexy and usually scantily or outrageously dressed, they may not know anything about video games (or whatever p...

Pimps and bikini women with Saints Row: The Third

What do Snoop Dogg, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Mr. Destructoid all have in common? They really have an awesome sneaker collection. They also happen to be super-star babe magnets and we all know that magnets work by magic. So whi...

E3: Dude...

You always see galleries of booth babes in E3 coverage. Females. But what about the guys? There should be some lookers in the biggest sausagefest of them all, right? We...we found some. Kinda. Enjoy Destructoid's E3 dude gallery. Sorry.

E3: Booth babes and dudes from the show floor, day 1

You want booth babes? Well, we're working on that. We've got some, but we threw some dudes in there. Dudes and a lombax.  The E3 floor is really fu*king crowded. It calmed down a bit this afternoon, but then someone star...
