E3 2005 – HG’s a Chick Magnet?!
Posted by Aro on June 16th, 2005 @ 7:44 a.m.
The answer seems to be yes, because HG’s collection of E3 photos are up, and it seems the Halos spent a great deal of time focusing on taking pictures of all the Booth Babes they could find (147 photos — there are captions too, but it’s difficult to pay attention).

Be sure to check out the pictures of the Halos visiting E3, and the write-ups of several upcoming games (such as Rise of Legends, RTW: Barbarian Invasion, and, of course, Age of Empires III) in the HG Main Previews section.
