Be careful not to start showing the same kind of bias as the reviewer.

...

Conan got away with it, because it was being REALISTIC in a historical context because that's just the way it was...which shows the biased views against this game, which uses it in terms of humor and even more so in that its depicted in a more cartoon way, unlike Conan which again, was more realistic in its look.

Not biased, just tried to refer the mistake of the one-sided "women were nothing more than items to be used and discarded" statement... I agree with you, in AoC (and in a few books as well) women are sometimes victims, servants, or plain bystanders. And in other cases they're allies, leaders, lone rangers, advesaries, sorceresses, leaders, etc. As you said too, Hyboria is a realistic, functioning world, and women are not in there for eye candy as the main purpose.

 

ON topic (and as well your line "which shows the biased views against this game") SB's problem is not the looks either. At least imo. I wrote the same a few times on the SB ad thread as well :) the game is very weak and mediocre. It worth the bashing on its quality alone, and that's my problem with the review too, that the writer also focusing on the looks and the t&a factor. SB could've gained the same low score if the focus is staying on the game's faults...

And the humor you mentioned, actually that was the only part I somewhat liked in SB, a few times it has hilarious lines :) but mostly those are weak too, sadly.

I thought I would post my response to the review here too.

You have got to be kidding me! This 20 year old reviewer is going to school me on what is disgusting and what I would be ashamed of playing? For context I am 53 years old and yes I tried Scarlet Blade and had no problem with people knowing I played it and even showed some of my friend, not a one was disgusted. The response by all including me was a nice laugh. Some people take things to seriously and George Dimmock you need to grow up a bit and not try so hard at being an adult.


"Not only is this downright degrading but it’s also embarrassing to play. I mean, would you want someone to catch you playing this game?"

"Yet even these are brought down by its unashamedly pornographic approach."

"Scarlet Blade is a title you’ll feel ashamed to play, and is truly one of the worst MMOs of this year."


Just a few of his wonderful quotes. Scarlet Blade is so far from porn it is not funny. I saw nothing in the game I would describe as porn. I disagree with many reviews at mmorpg.com but this has to be the worst review I have ever read here. People like George need to get a grip. Scarlet Blade is just a game. A bit tacky, a bit sophomoric,  a bit silly, and it has big tits! That's about it. Scarlet Blade is not to deep but I only played about 4 hours so I can not really comment about later in the game, it might get better. Oh god save me from this pile of porn. Lock up your daughters! Neuter your pets! For god sakes get your ass to confession!

 I stopped playing Scarlet Blade because it was boring not because I was ashamed. For some reason the character kept reminding my of Nicki Minaj.

Pretty much. And that last sentence. LOL. Either way, I think we should file a complaint to admins for allowing them to lock the comments thread, that is downright wrong.
