Rather than going 'OMG such a shitty game lol bigtits' i actually went to their site and checked out some of the videos on combat. it looks pretty good. might give it a shot and see.

The Deep Web is sca-ry.

soooo.. this game out yet or what?

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall.

As an Anime-fan id consider 'Scarlet's Blade' to be the equivalent of the anime 'Queens-Blade', I wouldn't put it in the 'Hentai' Category. Alas- I'm afraid I have to agree, a step too far indeed. I don't mind boob-sliders, and panties~ and some nudity.~ Even in Age of Conan: Full on BREASTNESS.


I have nothing more to say, other than a quote i found on YT.
"I think end game content will involve your entire party's? mech morphing into one giant boob."

Yeah this is adapted from Queen's Blade in the East.  The name is changed for the Western Market.  Not Hentai, it's fanservice with lots of skin, boobs, panty shots, etc...

Typical remarks from these more recent game journalist who act like mesh-skin in a mature game is the end of the world. Oddly enough these wannabe white-knight advocates never protest the words Sex put on the everyday magazine cover in a grocery store or the feature of naked females in movies or book covers. 

It's one of the reasons why even after all these years the game industry hasn't expanded to different audiences and ages much. Either it's stuck in kid-friendly mode or some political dandruff that reminds me more of those holy than thou religions that don't mind demonizing and shaming sexuality or the human form.

As consumers we will choice what we wish to play regardless because it comes to our personal choices in what we like or wish to enjoy. That is what entertainment is for. If some don't like those type of games then they are more than welcomed to play the 1,000 other family-approved or mainly blood and gore titles out there that don't have it in it.

So all this talking made me sign up for Scarlet blade. Thank you Bill always giving little jimmy a bump in the right direction.

Screw leveling games, give me something with "End game" at the beginning of the game.

Indeed.  All the while while writing articles for a web site that makes the majority of their income with game advertisements showing sexy women in their lingerie.(like the one currently on the front page)

1) You should stop generalizing Americans.

2)There is an argument that Playboy and swimsuit magazines degrade women as a whole.  That certainly applies to women in video games and 'boothbabes'.

Now I ask you a question: What is a bigger step backwards for women, pixelated fantasy women based on the Anime 'Queen's Blade' in a video game or real women posing nude in Playboy?

TL:DR Canada is still America's hat.

Its based off a fairly popular anime, Queens Blade and the lore on the website is pretty darn good. Will I play this? Likely no, but frankly that has more to do with the fact that I've been there before. To be honest the song and dance about this game and games like it is getting kind of old. If the porn industry wasn't a multi-billion dollar industry, maybe we could play the agast card, but it is. Trying to say this game is gauche for going where so many people want to go is just sad.

 hmm, Queen's Blade: a fantasy set in mideval times, sword and sorcery, where every fight starts with the women moderatly clothed and ending with one or more combatants in only their panties. Oh, yeah and QB has elves in it.

Scarlet Blade: a post-apocolyptic far future fantasy, sword and sorcery, where the women fight in very skimpy clothes that almost (but not quite) show naughty bits. SB is humans only.

SB might be an adaption of QB, but it's a very loose adaption and certainly not an official "royalties paid" adaption. And yes you are correct, it's not hentai, it's fan service.

In japan, Scarlet Blade is called QUEEN'S BLADE. The entire premise is what the anime industry relies on to survive: tickling the boners of brainless and girlfriendless (rightly so!) zombie otaku to make them hand over their wallets. Its a system that has worked in Japan, and will keep persisting as long as 2chan and Sankaku can continue to attract followers/the depraved.

Queen's Blade is pushing into the table-top pencil & paper RPG genre, and their books all read something like that.

The Queen's Blade MMO incarnation localized to Scarlet Blade for the international audience  will NOT differ from this background. I am surprised anyone who bothered to try/review this game did not look up where on Earth did it come from (for me, I'm just a passing-through anime follower that knows Queen's Blade.)

This is no step backward, but rather a product of a culture that has way way waaaaaay backward values about women and progressiveness. Trust me, Scarlet Blade will die on the international stage, but it will also continue to exist.

Because like it or not, we gaijin matter not to the Japanese beyond the few pennies they will get from us. Queen's Blade is popular enough in Japan to give this game half a decade of decadence on its own.

Queen's Blade MMO is not the Queen's Blade Anime. The MMO is produced in Korea while the show was made in Japan. Two different companies.

What is similar is following:

Both are released officially in US with a M-rating

Both have mainly all-female leads

Both are teaser/erotica

Both have characters fighting against one-another or a force.

What Is Differences:

MMO is post-future cyber setting and mechs

Show is past-history with swords and shields

The show is released fully uncensored regardless of female character

The MMO has been censored in regard of female character

Queen's Blade MMO has been name-changed due to copyright issues with the already Queen's Blade show.

I've watched that show in addition to owning the collector's boxes. I would say as the show is much more flashy in content than the surface teasing in the MMO entirely itself. Television producers seem less worried about it the content than Game Companies and simply go by the rating. It is up to consumer whether they want the product or not. Some may like it some may not but it is matter of choice. Publishers put the product out there and it shouldn't be a shame-thing based on impressing others on what entertainment they should assume to like or don't like.
 
If someone(s) like a little tease or sexyness in their entertainment it's not a big deal and is the individuals personal preferences of choice and taste. May be offensive to those who have issue with the naturality of sexuality, human form. We play games and watch shows for entertainment and fun not sunday-church yes? If real-life was that fun we wouldn't be playing games or watching shows at all. :p

Thats false, the industry relies on the "Moe" Culture, which is the complete opossite of sexualisation. It portrays women in a unrealistic pure and cute way. You can see it in all those animes that have only female characters like K-ON. I think you are confusing the hentai industry, which its just porn, with normal Anime.

Also Pokemon, One piece, Naruto, Saint seita and Neon genesis are still the kings, see a patern? Not focused on sex, just good looking women.

If anything, what is keeping alive the anime industry are very expectacular fight sequences on HD.

You know nothing about anime so please refrain from comenting about it.

"You’re probably thinking that I shouldn’t do the game any service by covering it here at all"

I can't claim that to have been my reaction. I'd have far preferred to have seen you not commence your examination of the game on such an aggressively opposed footing.

"But as far as I’m concerned, nothing can bring it back from the level of mockery it’s bound to receive from just about everyone for being so overtly and comically sexual in its visual, um... aesthetic."

So, if it's difficult to take seriously. Did SB ever ask to be considered in such a way? Why does it need 'redeeming' from a light-hearted, aloof, or simplistic outlook - couldn't crowds of import mmos pale under such measure, if used as criticism? Is there humor, how does the game present itself...It appears, Bill, that your glimpsing over of this title casts a similarly shocking parallel between what you, and Aeria are drawing most immediate attention to.

I think there's room for all kinds of games, from the equivalent of a hollywood blockbuster movie, to straight-to-dvd discards. I think we're all better off, with having as broad a range of influences and flavors available to sample, as possible.

With the conversation still going on and new players getting interested in it. Or this was the result that was aimed for?

Tu Quoque is essentially a very simple argument. You can watch five year olds using it.

And yes, part of his job is generating buzz. Controversial positions, as we see daily on this and every other forum site, always do an admirable job of that. Much to the chagrin of the average "hater", who always does a great job of promotion.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.
