Here’s a news flash for guys who attend conventions: it isn’t okay for you to treat booth babes without respect. Gizmodo posted a short (under four minutes) documentary of sorts in which they asked a number of CES booth babes about unpleasant encounters that they’ve had with male attendees, and boy, some of their stories are pretty outrageous (and even sickening, at points). Click through to the Gizmodo post to watch the video.

Whether you’re a geeky shut-in with “Internet-bred social skills” or not, I would hope that you at least have the common decency to resist whatever primal urges might lead you to attempt things like an ass grab (or worse). And don’t give me the “well, they’re booth babes -- they knew what they were getting into when they signed up for it” argument. These women were hired to get your attention, yes, and they’re probably very attractive, which obviously helps with that. Being ogled? Sure, they’d probably acknowledge that that’s part of the job description. But being objectified? That’s crossing the line, and I must say that while I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that the kind of stuff that these women describe actually happens, I’m still appalled at stories like the one that “Bob,” the Suicide Girl, tells here.

Bob’s tale of Puzzle Quest, ticket-stealing, and hand-holding was the most disturbing one for me -- it gradually got more unnerving, and by the end, I was almost ashamed to be a member of the male sex. I may be socially awkward, but I’m not a creep, and I hope none of you have ever engaged in any similar shenanigans. My point is this: Booth babes are people, too. They’re eye candy, sure, but they’re not objects. Read through the Gizmodo comments if you want some more awful stories (oh, and by the way, here’s something enticing: they’ve got pics of the booth babes, too).

I'll just leave this here: Senran Kagura 2 opening video

Senran Kagura Burst box art was almost even sexier

Marvelous AQL didn't shy away from titillation with apparent porn game Senran Kagura Burst's European box art. The initial plan was even more blatant. The original box art design, prototyped above, was a slip cover. The outer...more

Disney Infinity, Murdered: Soul Suspect, Kodoku & Bikinis

Well, we got a new camera and I accidentally switched it onto "Sears Portrait Studio" mode, so sorry if I look a little bit like I'm in a porno from the late eighties. (What else is new.) Today, we've got some more details o...more
