I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

Godzilla fans enjoyed the recent film, but will they feel the same way about the new video game?

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Booth Babes? BAH, I say!

Posted on Monday, June 13 @ 15:25:39 Eastern by KevinS


I have spent more time on my feet walking to, from, and between the halls of E3 than I usually walk in three weeks.  I've seen booth babes at nearly every booth, handing out bags/shirts/posters/oven gloves/whatever. I know the general crowd here, but I can't say I'm in the minority when I ask the gaming world…

Where are the booth buffs? Where are the male booth babes for the other half of the population?!

Throughout the entire show, I only saw three male promo people designed to show off games: one "guard" for Duke Nukem Forever, Gaymer from the PSN series "The Tester" dressed as Nathan Drake, and Ratchet from Ratchet & Clank (and I don't really count him, I just wanted a third in the list so I went a little more… unusual).

Where are the Chippendale's guys to promote some dancing games? [There were two male dancers at the Dance Central 2 booth, but about five girls. ~Ed. Nick] How about a bunch of farm boys to push a new Harvest Moon? I demand a flood of Nathan Drakes to roam the show floor, not a bevy of Glee-themed cheerleaders to stumble through "More Than A Feeling" for the fiftieth time.

But alas, I know I'm in the minority, so I guess I'll have to do with what I've been given. I just need to find a company that's willing to put some more literal muscle behind a game or a booth. But sorry, Ratchet, you're just not doin' it for me.
