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 workweek days. I'm sur...

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...

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

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 ...

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 Burch spotlight...

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 atte...   read

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 that hot, that ...

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 Brotherhood quests I can ...

TGS: The lovely ladies of Tokyo Game Show

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 Makuhari Messe conve...

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 started giving away...

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 picture. That, c...

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 items in games...

Saucy Korean booth babes banned for being too sexy!

This is not really news so much as an excuse to post pictures of sexy Asian women, but at least we'll admit that. In any case, a pair of booth babes have recently been thrown out of South Korean game show G-Star for having costumes that wer...

TGS 09: Scandal! Censorship! Underboob!

Underboob. It's like some rare form of cleavage that is scarcely seen in the real world, and often times when it is it's hardly as good as it looks in the magazines that men get for the "articles." However, could it be that underb...
