I went to E3 to learn about videogames, and I did, but by the end of the show, I had also learned a whole hell of a lot about women.
While hoofing it around the show floor, it seemed to me like there were actually more women at E3 than there were videogames. Now that I think about it, most games in attendance at the show had two, three, or even four "promotional models" apiece. Even Nintendo's booth was brimming with part-time model-looking ladies. They were slightly more classy and family-flavored than the other "professional spokeswomen" at the show, but they were all most definitely "booth babes."
This video doesn't even cover a fraction of the women I met at E3 (God, that sounds terrible). If you're curious about what we didn't get on camera, this video by my new friend Storm Dain does a lot to pick up the slack. He managed to meet the modestly dressed Ninja Gaiden 2 Sigma babes, the so-real-it's-creepy Bayonetta babe, and the 3rd hardest working babe in videogame journalism, Jessica Chobot.
Ugh, all this use of the word "babe" is making me feel dirty. Just hit the jump and watch the video so I can go wash my hands.
[Update: Got some complaints about not enough pics in the gallery, so I added a few more. Also, due to popular demand, here's Jessica Hall (the KoF XII girl) in her underwear.)
