Just going to shamelessly plug here, played for a hour and did a 3.5 min video of my thoughts.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0xbwZiH9Rys

 

Needless to say... I'm really glad the experience is over, this game is bloody awful in every respect, theres absolutely no way to redeem this generic piece of crap.

 

I'm pretty sure we'll see worse in the future though, no doubt about it.

lol "and my clothes were gone" brilliant.

I'm partial to grinders tbh. Your video reminded me of early RFO, they seem very similar.

And to the poster above me: this is not about "being ashamed of our bodies". It is about taking something that should be private between individuals and commercialising it to make profit. Believe it or not, sex requires responsibility.

I could argue the same for violence. It requires responsibility and yet, here we are, blowing up someone's head in different ways is A-OK.

Without it unwanted pregencies and STDs and even date rape will be on the rise, which it currently is.

You don't say. I still don't see how nudity depicted in pixels has any more influence than violence depicted in pixels does.

What? Corps want to make profits so they lobby politicians to make laws, or not to, to suit their agenda.

Except you actually need a real weapon to blow someone elses head up. Besides, two wrongs does not make a right.

See response above. And nudity depicted in pixels does not change a thing. Photos seen on a computer are made of pixels as well.

Have we all forgotten about AOC ? Just like in SB you can undress the female characters and see their naked bodies. 

This game is not on its own here.

Remember this meme?

That's why we're laughing so hard at Scarlet Blade. And will continue to.

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.

 I keep seeing this canard. For the most part violence is handled responsibly. We kill enemies and monsters. When games like Postal mowing down marching bands  and the grand theft auto running over hookers thing come out society does question it. How many mainstream games have you seen about roasting Jewish people in ovens and lynching Black people have you seen? Rape, torture, and genocide aren't topics commonly seen in  gaming. Yeah it gets over the top sometimes but there are limits.

What part of violence is reponsible?

Either way it isn't like the game is rated T. This shouldn't even matter.

Or you could mature up a little?

 

I mean, hunting people of your same race, killing them repeatedly with necromantic magics, summoning demons or stabbing them with swords in the most possible gory way within your reach just for pleasure is alright, but girls (or boys) wearing light clothing is morally wrong?

 

Pretending to be a terrorist assaulting and killing in cold blood a VIP target and any cops that get in the way is all cool and fun, but if one of the character skins has a generous cleavage, then it suddenly is all bad?

 

Sorry, but there is no morality highground for you to stand here, and I don't buy the double standards.

 

 

 

My opinion is my own. I respect all other opinions and views equally, but keep in mind that my opinion will always be the best for me. That's why it's my opinion.

The depiction of violence in gaming. You know, the part I was clearly talking about. It matters. First because the ratings are often ignored guidelines and second because some things are wrong no matter how old you are.

How are you going to tell me what is right and wrong in a virtual world? FFS i can goto a hog farm and slaughter the swine and claim it was those darned video games that did it.

Ratings are there for a reason, beyond that point it is consumer and parental responsibility. PERSONAL responsibility.. it is about damn time people stop blaming others for their problems.

(ie: In the USA, you don't go to jail for 'statutory rape' if the female is age 16 or 17.

(according to 'the powers that be', since I'm a lesbian and been one forever, I'm already damned and going to hell for it, I'm so scared!)

 

no. it's not religious, it's political.

 

it's also not universal like you said.

 

if the japanese or korean or w/e gov't doesn't have a problem with it then why do we ? it's legal.

 It's time people stop excusing their excesses in the name of someone else's personal responsibility. The game companies bear some resonsibilty too. If someone murders that's their responsibility. If a gaming company makes a tasteless overly sexualized or violent game that's their responsibility. The concept of personal responsibility relies on everyone taking responsibility for their own actions. It's not a one way street. What is right and wrong in a virtual world is largely what's right anfd wrong in the real world. There is more leeway because of lack of immediate real world effect but even there the limits exist.  If we never discuss the limits no one will ever know what they are. If we don't regulate ourselves the nanny state will do it for us and we won't like it.

Well if there wasn't a market for the "tasteless" overly sexual content then there wouldn't be any. Sorry when you take away the "tasteless" markets then real world problems get worse. You think crime will lower if the entertainment industry reduces or even removes such content?

When the benefits and consequences of entertainment equal up to each other you might see change but until then people will enjoy their relievers.

Are you seriously trying to compair girls in skimpy clothing to murder or that a woman who puts on a bikini is somehow wrong.
 I would rather see every game use sex to sell itself than ever let some crazy puritan preach that type of garbage. The only people getting hurt by this are the ones who have let that kind of BS mess them up already. It's this kind of thinking that left unchecked leads to women being forced to wear black sheets over their heads. They had to take responcablility for the effect they had on men.

Play the game...it sucks. It would go away very quickly if ppl would stop complaining about it. Posts like this are the only reason this game is getting so much attention.

People are like cats. When they die, you get a new one.

Obviously there is a market . I know an uncle who when I was little used to hit us if we so much as said anything mildly naughty and then I found out later he had like a tonne of all these pornography. Put all his blustering about us as we grew older a little hypocritical. There is always a  market same with drugs if there were no addicts there would be no drug trade. I really think it is much ado about nothing considering the violence you can see on the internet and even normal surfing has those ads pop up. I am sure any child with a phone or an ipad or computer sees much worse.
