  1. Hear that? It's the sound of the point going right over your head.
  2. Those are good points that I hadn't considered. But you know what they say, "there is no bad press". Fair enough. So you like this rule because it will supposedly make traffic more fluid. Somehow, I doubt that's the reasoning behind this ruling, as they have only banned booth girls and not anything else that might cause "traffic jams" in the expo, such as maybe giving out promo gifts.
  3. what <{POST_SNAPBACK}> You know... the whole thing with the priest actually being the Devil... you know? Uh... that's actually not my name. But you're right. Don't argue with me, I'm always right and it's pointless.
  4. It was a thinly veiled allegory about the Catholic Church.
  5. No, nobody's getting hurt. If anyone, then it would be the hunky male models that aren't being hired for that kind of jobs, and I haven't seen any of them complaining yet. What you or me think we know about marketing, or our thoughts on how it should be conducted are rather irrelevant, as there are people who do that for a living. There are set rules, set strategies that do work, and that is a fact. Anything else is just speculation. That's why I said it's outside of the scope of this discussion. If they say sex sells, even in video games, you're going to have to deal with it.
  6. To each their own, I guess. It's not like anybody is getting hurt with that. There are much worse things to "be repulsed by". I agree with you here. That's outside of the scope of the discussion, though, as I'm not a marketing guy, and I suspect you aren't in that sector either. The fact is that marketing people seem to think that sex sells here too. I don't see why they shouldn't be allowed to put that idea to the test, but on the other hand, there's no problem with sex being used as a marketing strategy in deodorants, just to use your example. That's speculation. I can't re
  7. Guys, guys. In case you didn't notice, Volourn won the thread in like, page 3. Heh. And here I thought it was a plus to know what the hell are you bashing. Silly me. It will be Fallout. They paid for the license, which means it belongs to them, not to you. If they say it's Fallout, it's Fallout, and you can't do jack about it. )
  8. Those are good points. However, I guess you'd also want to lob grenades at them if they were waiting in line, say, to get a NWN2 t-shirt, right? Does that mean they should also ban expositors giving out promotional gifts? Yeah. Somebody needs to do something about the social stigma that porn entails. Meh. That may very well be the case. It was a honest question, by the way. However, that still does not prove that games are not getting any publicity because of IGN mentioning the amount of crazy hot girls in minimalistic suits in E3. And I repeat the argu
  9. What gaming news source writes an article entirely about booth babes and doesn't mention the game they advertise? Because if you actually know of any, I'd like to know too, so I can avoid them. Pretty much. That's irrelevant, though. The decision affecting me does not change the fact that it's a hypocritical, anachronical, and random ruling. Why don't they ban short skirts or tight pants too? And if I was a marketing guy, then it would affect me, as it would make my job harder for no good reason. Well, I have never been to E3, that's true. But I've been to comic fairs
  10. I'm not sure what you mean by that. Do you pay more attention to articles about booth babes when you're searching for articles about games? That's what I have my porn for. So? By that logic, you could ban the use of plasma displays larger than certain dimensions, sound equipment more powerful than a random standard, giving out promotional gifts, or whatever. Again, I don't approach or get away from a stand depending on booth babes. It's nice to look at them alright, but for the most part, I just don't care about them. The ruling itself is stupid because it's anachronic. You
  11. If a booth babe can distract you from a game, then it's a really poor game. ) They're just eye candy, so there's just so much you can do with them. It's not like you can take them home or anything. Another stupid ruling, that's what it is.
