UPDATE: The IGDA has released a statement to Gamespot by executive director Kate Edwards apologizing for the event, saying:
"We recognize that some of the performers' costumes at the party were inappropriate, and also some of the activities they performed were not what we expected or approved. We regrest that the IGDA was involved in this situation. We do not condone activities that objectify or demean women or any other group of people. One of the core values of the IGDA is encouraging inclusion and diversity. Obviously we need to be more vigilant in our efforts. We intend to do so in the future."
Being a gaming journalist is a cool job. No doubt about it. You are correct to envy us.
However, it’s not all drunken E3 parties and late night multiplayer battles with game developers and celebrities. We play games for a living, of course, but for every Far Cry 3 there’s a Hello Kitty’s Island Adventure (thanks, South Park).
