Today's highlights include a big focus on women and sexism in the game industry, as a panel starring Brenda Romero received a standing ovation for discussing the prominent issues facing women developers.

The IGDA meanwhile found itself in hot water after a party it co-presented featured a number of scantily-clad female dancers, the fallout from which resulted in condemnation and a number of resignations from the organisation.
