Post Launch parties
I guess I don't read Entertainment Weekly or keep track of red carpets through any medium. So maybe I shouldn't be surprised that computer game release parties have a ton of completely unrelated famous/good-looking people at them. But I am:

http://www.vybzmagazine.com/2011/08/cas ... hollywood/

Um, is this normal? I read about release parties for Doom II and such in Masters of Doom. But I figured everybody in attendance was at least tangentially related to the game, like a voice actor or a voice actor's friend. Random actresses at a movie's premiere make sense because it's all the same field. But vidya games? Really?

This happens a lot nowadays. I wouldn't mind being invited.
