Internet goes tits over Age of Conan's breasts

Tit. Nipple. Breast. There, I said it, and so has every news service covering video games over the past week as Age of Conan released information that the infamous tit and nipple will be a staple of the upcoming MMORPG.

In this age of Toontown Online, Habbo and Pirates of the Caribbean Online, Funcom has chosen to become the slackness of the MMORPG industry. There is such a buzz when it comes to Age of Conan's tits and nipples, I decided to investigate.

Not being a huge fan of Conan, as it seems every blogging gaming geek has become on the internet since breasts and nipples were announced, I started with the Wikipedia entry of Conan the Barbarian and there was not one mention of tits, nipples or breast. There wasn't even a simple boob to be found.

Then I came across the old Conan the Barbarian movies where I remember as a child walking in on some spicy scenes, but shit... that was the 80's, bush was not in the White House, but bush was definitely in the Conan movies.

The odd part once again, after reading the Wikipedia entries of the Conan movies there was no focus on tits, boobs, ass or even bush, since Bush is another hot topic on the pale-skin blogger scene. The focus was mostly on plot and story.

Now we come back to Age of Conan, Hyborian Adventures and there wasn't even a mention of breasts and nipples in that wikipedia entry.

So I'm left to wonder. Are breasts and boobs that critical to the success of an M rated MMORPG or are breasts and boobs the new smoke and mirror of the MMORPG industry?

I understand in the middle ages, people just didn't have the money to go to Aeropostle or Gap to cover up their breasts and nipples, but come on.. is it that critical in the storyline? It's not that I'm on an anti-nipple crusade. I enjoy a good breast as much as the next guy.

This week, we are flooded with breasts and boobs again, while things like 12 classes instead of 14 and even more release delays are quitely tucked away under the boobs and breasts.

It leaves me wondering why we are so worried about stupid shit in Age of Conan like breasts and boobs and less on the shitty gameplay videos recently released.

Laff. I find it funny that you place any merit on wikipedia entries. You do realize there are novels right? Pick any novel and read it...

Shitty gameplay video? thats your opinion just like you felt you had to write another post about boobs. Seen it all before. Seems you arrived late to the party.

AoC is not about nipples.. if you "investigated" further you would see that.
