Tin Can Robot


Rachel Weber, GamesIndustry International journalist, commenting on news site CVG posting a gallery of E3 booth babes and inviting readers to “get their scorecards out.”

And that’s exactly why things like CVG’s recent booth babes gallery and its grimy intro is so disappointing. Because the industry isn’t like that and CVG is doing it a disservice to present it that way, nevermind a disservice to its readers by telling them that it’s an acceptable way to discuss women. The CVG writers wouldn’t walk up to a girl at E3 and shout ‘would,’ (and I know some of the writers, they’re better than that) so why let your readers think it’s OK to do it in the comments box?
