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.
"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."
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.
Games are epic.

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.
