Signal boost! Just say no to sexsploitation at gaming conventions! [May. 28th, 2010|01:22 pm]
Team Ovary


Here’s a chance for your voice to be heard within the gaming convention community! The Penny Arcade Expo, one of the largest and most fan-friendly videogame events in the United States, has just released a survey asking attendees their opinions on PAX’s “no booth babe” policy, defining a booth babe as "a model... that has been hired to stand/sit in skimpy clothing to market the product. If that person knows the product inside and out then it's less of an issue. A company representative that can interact with attendees in a way that provides value as opposed to "hey stare at my body" is something that we encourage."

PAX is generally a woman-friendly gaming convention, and the organizers should be lauded for voluntarily putting limits on this sort of exploitation of women's bodies. It’s not often that any fandom convention actually asks attendees for their opinion about booth staff attire, particularly in a culture that tends to be very male-dominated. The survey asks respondents about how they feel about the current “No Booth Babe” policy, whether they should be more lenient, and what sorts of attire should be included in the policy.

Let’s boost the signal on this survey, and get the word out. Tweet about it, Facebook it, post on your blog, tell your friends, and let people know any way you can. With this survey you have the chance to have a real impact on any changes made to this policy.

Hey, all. My name is Liela, but my Xbox Live Gamertag is SV Miss Decay.
I'm the leader of an all female Halo 3/Modern Warfare 2 clan, and I thought I would try to hook up (in a non sexual sense) with some other XBL girls, and came across this community~
If you're ever interested in playing something with me, send me an invite, and if I have the game I'll come hang out with you. Add me, talk to me, whatever, haha.
Also, I'm a huge, obnoxious dork.

 Hey ladies! I'm "LoreleiSiren" on XBL. I generally play Rock Band but I'm up for other gaming. Anyone else into Rock Band? (I heard there was a women's group for Rock Band but I can't seem to find it.)

 Edit: Here's the site I was thinking of, though it isn't just for Rock Band. :)

I'm new! [Oct. 4th, 2005|11:24 pm]

My gamer tag on XBL is: JustViolet

However, my evil ex took his Box back, and now I'm left without my Halo2 :( Until I get paid, anyway...

But I DO Have a question for you ladies: I've just snagged a job writing gaming reviews for my State newspaper, yet I can't think of a good tag name. I don't want to use the overused Girl Gamer or Gamer Girl..... So, would you have any ideas as to what would represent me as a girl but not be too cliche or overused? I'm seriously wracking my brains, here!

I've played those live games in Crimson Skies where people drop out of the game and abandon their teammates. Yah, you feel pity but you just go on shooting the poor bastard(s) still there. However, this evening I had the chance to taste the other side of the pie.

The game was three on three, the countdown had begun, and right before the game began the two guys on my team left. I was stuck fighting three others. Now that sucked lol especially since they sat around my spawn point and waited to get some kills; it was a long game, I took my revenge, however meager. In the end I still managed to rank second ... so I guess that makes me kind of happy ... despite the crappiness of it all. Just thought I'd share my angst ;D I brought my rank back up though, after playing a few more games.

another introduction [Aug. 30th, 2004|04:44 pm]

Gamertag Valkyrie ix and I play Crimson Skies.

It's great to find a community for female gamers. I'm not on very often because ... I have no xbox lol I play on my bf's. However, when I return to school in September I'll have an xbox at my disposal :D

If anyone here would like to play a game or two in CS that’d be great. I live in Canada, eastern time (-05:00 GMT). At the moment I usually go on in the evening/night (6:30pm-12:00am, give or take). However, when I return to school I'll be on in the afternoon most likely. Have a good one :)

I just posted to the community with my gamertag ("dark angel 1313") and to introduce myself. I forgot to mention what games I play and what not. My favorite game is Rainbow Six 3, but since I am still fairly new to XBL I have been renting new games to play on live to see what else is good. Games like SWAT, Desert Storm, and the Matrix are among my favorite, but since I don't know of the best XBL games out there maybe some of you could give me suggestions!
