Booth Babes

Or: How I learned to stop worrying and love the fantasy
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... read feature

Gallery: Welcome to G-Star 2012


'Booth companions'
Nov 09
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... read

TGS: Enjoy this floor gallery while we fight the crowds


Sep 22
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? read

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 t... read feature

Why GREE has the greatest booth at Tokyo Game Show

HAWP: The splendiferous, monumentous E3 2012 trilogy

HAWP: Anthony Burch has no shame


May 19
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 ... read

EB Games Expo 2011: The booth babes


Oct 21
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... read

TGS: The lovely ladies of Tokyo Game Show


Sep 17
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.  read

TGS: Before anything else, booth babes


Sep 14
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... read

TGS: The Accidental Pervert's best of booth companions

So, as it turns out, there is a law in Japan against taking a girl's picture without her permission. Not only did I not know this, but even if I did, I have no idea how to ask a girl in Japanese if I am allowed to take her p... read

No, Gladiator Begins is NOT a porn movie

[As posted on Japanator] I love Acquire. Creators of the Way of the Samurai games, they put the "quirky" into "quirky Japanese game." Part of being so quirky is their willingness to insert all kinds of random, non-sequitorial... read
