Some more news on women in games

When I met roBin at the GDC this year, one of the quirky things she did was steal one of the bizarre Microsoft stand-up thingies from the lounge bar (the ones that look like the absurdly shaped and dressed woman from the Noir XNA demo) and claim she would use it as an award for particularly bad cases of sexist depiction of women in games at E3 ("the boobie awards").

Well, she's posted her pictures. And fine pictures they are. The Microsoft object is nowhere in sight, though.

Speaking of sexist depiction of women in games, what's with the Playboy Mansion vibe in this screenshot of Sims 2?
