Thank you Bill Murphy and MMORPG.com for giving this game the puplicity and attention it deserves.

This game seems like such a joke. I can't understand how ANYONE would ever want to play or throw money at this game in any way.

But whatever, to each their own. I supposed it's aimed at the type of people who would, say, roll an Elin in Tera.

I definitely agree with it being a step backwards for the genre, however.

I log in this morning and there are like a half dozen ads for this game with scantilly clad animes that look about 12 years old......I just don't get the obsession some people have with anime.....When I see advertising liek that I know the game sucks without even playing it.....If they have to use sex to sell then it is bad.

It must be hard to have gender streotypes in a world where you only have one gender. :D

I played the closed beta this weekend.  The T&A was great at first, but I got so into the story that I almost forgot I was playing a female character.  I wanted to get to the next quest so I could read more of the story.

This is the first MMO since Tabula Rasa that made me want to read the quests.  

Can't wait for OB and realease.  This is gonna be my MMO for a good while.

The downside is that the mechanics still need work - I was a little confused as to the GCD since it seemed as though my skills would not go off when I hit them, even though they weren't on cooldown.  The mobs just seem to be placed in spots waiting to be killed by players.  It was a litle disappointing.  But, as this was CB, they have time to fix things.

I think all you haters out there are gonna be dissapointed that this "joke" of an F2P MMO is going to make a pretty big splash.  Sure, the social aspects may suffer a bit in this game due to its very nature, but I think it will do fine.  Wait for the real reviews.  The reviewers will be shocked and amazed at how great the story is, and will most likely say the same thing I just did - "I actually read the quests!"

If I could press "like", I would have pressed it here.

 

Also, the only unethicality in this game is the lack of men. And thats actually insult towards men, more than women.

So it's a step back for gaming and women's rights, while pushing the boundries of sex in gaming. I feel like that's a good thing. Show us where the line is, Scarlet Blade - if your game fails, it's an example for the rest of the world. 

 

However - it's clearly causing quite a commotion among the community, it's got a pretty intense marketing campaign going on, and ya know what else? It's not taking itself too seriously!

 

Asian MMO imports are notorious for garbage storylines and generic content - this game embraces that and takes a new angle. Yes, we all know it's shameless. I wouldn't be surprised if there ends up being a completely unbalanced pay2win cash shop in it, too - but at the end of the day, the company is trying to make money. And judging by this game's bulging popularity, I think they'll do just that. 

 

At least for a little while, so long as they continue to update the game with bigger, bustier characters and NPCs.

 

Also, well written. I was amused. 

:D

It isn't that great, neither are the models.  I thought the idea of starting naked and forcing you to play the game to cover yourself up was quite amusing though.  It certainly wasn't the "riveting" plot that saw me endure twenty minutes of gameplay to earn a pair of shoes.  I was actually curious if they had deliberately structured the first quest rewards to keep as much digital flesh on display as possible for as long as possible.

I was not surprised to find that they had.  I'm sure it'll meet the same fate as most Aeria games.

this game is pretty decent if you can look over the sexualisation of it. it's actually pretty fun, also this game was totally made for those who know what it really is and that is queens blade online (queens blade is a VN/anime series) the story is pretty good if you pay attention to it, the PVP is quite fun and frantic, but very laggy as of right now. and to be honest i never play as male characters in MMORPG's anyway, not because i am perverted or anthing but because i am tired of always playing as steroid using macho men.  anyways give it a try you might be surprised that you enjoy it.

Bill, I'm curious about something. Where is this outrage coming from? You don't honestly think this is the first game to make its female models cheesecake. The difference is, they're not trying to hide it or gloss over it. Where is your outrage over the idle animation of the Night Elf female in WoW (as one example)?

As others have said, the game has a lot going for it. The whole 'naked female model' thing is just a ploy to get people to try it, being Asian MMO port #9175841474. The story is good and, being an M 17 title, the NPCs speak like real people in stressful situations would (i.e. salty language) which is a huge small detail for me. Last time I remember an M rated MMO title, it was solely for blood and gore (AoC) and the language used, even in the most life threatening of situations, was the Queen's English (which isn't realistic AT ALL).

In the words of one Eric Bischoff, controversy creates cash. Go ask Elvis Presley, NWA, 2Pac,  Body Count, Trent Reznor/Nine Inch Nails, RockStar Games, Eminem, Eli Roth (Hostel), and so on and so on and so on. Ask the producers of Married....With Children how much they love Terry Rakolta. Judging by the number of outraged gaming journalists, Aeria's marketing department hit a home run here.

I like most all of what you have to say Bill Murphy, but I lean on a leg of integruity, either stand against all objectification, or hush up.

Nice.

I actually like this concept as much as I enjoyed a special Japanese animation called Geneshaft. Unfortunately I can't agree with you on this entry for several reasons: 

 

1) When a company advertises a game as MATURE, it creates an open field for practically any story, regardless its intensity level without censorship. When a game has a TEEN rating, all the parents and all the authorities are watching the content so very closely that we have to guess where something in the game could have been made cool if it were mature. 

 

This first paragraph is important because in the U.S, a game is MADE TO COVER A RATING like TEEN, while in Europe, China and Japan, a game is made and GIVEN A RATING BASED ON ITS ACTUAL CONTENT WITHOUT CENSORSHIP. I can't stand the idea that game companies say "I want this game to be a TEEN GAME, so lets censor and strip our own GAME until a THIRD PARTY WITH NO POWER who does not have any LEGAL RIGHTS and is dubbed independent gives us our own RATING. 

 

2) The second reason is that if i look at girls only because of bodies and I do not at least see the game, that in itself is a discrimination in itself. Maturity, knowledge and discipline teaches us that the easiest thing to see and easiest thing to draw is a naked human body. The same is true in the way of graphics. Its easy to make a 3D model of a body but much harder to skin and animate it. I'd much rather see how the girls survive in such a universe. 

 

I mean, I saw the profiles of the girls and the bust-size measurement in the profile and half of them were wrong. They also had a girl below a B cup as well...so it wasn't all C - F cups. I was more curious as to why their design came to be in such a form and the mentality behind it on the story-end of things. Like, the assassin character has less height and draws more attention in its design than most assassins in most games. There is also a character class specializing in Melee Area DPS. I wanted something different and after months of BORING guild wars 2 heart quests and that crappy SUPER ADVENTURE BOX, I wanted something more mature.

 

I give praise to any developer making a Mature video game. Also, are you sure its pure hentai or is it ecchi? I know several guys and girls who like the existence of the game simply because of how American games seem to be attached training wheels prior to release simply because Americans are more afraid of reacting to being pissed than actually releasing a game without censorship. They speak of freedom but restrict anything in their media that would cause a reaction. I for one just handle the content and if I can't handle, I kindly leave elsewhere to the next thing. ^_^

I start to wonder whether or not this many SB threads are part of some marketing scheme like the "make one new CU thread in every hour to clogging up the forums" movement was :) all you see about SB is ads, nudity, censorship, t&a, etc. and not a single word about how mediocre and boring grinder the game is...

 

I agree with your first point, and the situation is even worse, like when marketing people decide what would be the most profitable rating and they force the director to cut the movie or a screenwriter for a rewrite... so much for artistic integrity (there was a great docu about the pathetic MPAA rating system of US, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0493459/)

 

For the quote above, you could try some ren'ai games :)

(I wouldn't even dare to suggest eroge, if those ads make such an uproar around here, I guess people would suffer heart attacks finding out there are a whole genre of "mature" games... lol)

 

Edit: mediocre and boring grinder - I must add I couldn't get myself to play beyond lvl20, so there is a slight chance that SB turns into a funny, amazing game after that point. But I seriously doubt it :)

That wasn't what I would call a fair review, I know nothing about the game apart from it containing boobs from what I just read. I wonder if Bill would have made a fair review if the game had some Futanari characters.

Bill, i personally think you are over-reacting abit here. i have just played scarlet blade just now. there was definitely nudity there but the core of the game feels good(gameplay wise). scarlet blade is definitely a triple AAA release and i do agree that the nudity is too much but i play the game with a mindset of "its just a game". who dahell cares if it has nude content so long as i have fun with it. -Prolim123

I will wager this game has far more players than TES and Camelot Unchained because more people would even rather play a game with bouncing boobies and meh gameplay than play DaoCs outdated vastly limiting close off faction lands and spoon fed content leading to PvP carrot on a stick.

lmao Thanks for that
