Gave it a go like I do with all mmo's. I'll have to admit it's not for prudes but it's definitely not really an adult mmo unless you're shocked by seeing someone take off their shirt. It reminded me of RF Online in some way. Played it with a female friend and she enjoyed it. The game definitely has a lot more than just a T&A feature which is just there for giggles and which I found not even mentioned or talked about by the community while i played. You'd be surprised how friendly the community was and while it did not make me stay, I enjoyed the few days I spent giving it a go.

I think making fun of this game and its marketing is something I'll always enjoy doing.  Joyously reveling in its excess of fan-service extreme...creepy old guys and teens fapping their way to glory. More power to 'em, I hope their feelings don't get too hurt when I point and laugh.

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 don't Forum PVP. If that's what you're looking for, try someone else.

the reason i dont play these kind of games is because the character models are way too hot and distracting that i cant focus on actually playing the game anymore.

 

also this game has the best advertisements: "She has no safe word. Play Scarlet Blade." LMAO

Most memorable games: AoC(Tryanny PvP), RIFT, GW, GW2, Ragnarok Online, Aion, FFXI, FFXIV, Secret World, League of Legends (Silver II rank)

well having this kind of thing in game makes people think its ok and totally normal, i said promoting as well by the way not that it is chil exploitation..

 

So you cant see an issue with a game allowing people to strip children down to their underwear ?

 

its just prue wrong, i have no issues with the adult female characters and so on I am 100% fine with that.. but bringing children characters into the game and donig the same thing with them is 100% wrong and should be banned.

Funny how people got all up in arms over the Scarlet Blade ads but nobody seems to notice the cleavage showing, ass up in the air motorcycle girl in the Sevencore spash ad. Sure she's got more clothes on but the sexual inuendo is every bit as strong. As for the ads they ended at the exact same time the game ended it's Closed Beta cycle and went down for like 12 hours. I think that had more to do with them disappearing than a few complaints on the forum.

I don't know where everyone else stands, but I thought it was ridiculous.  You can whine and point fingers about how I'm being sensitive and all that BS, but you'd be wrong.  I'm into weirder things than a lot of you and a bit of tits and ass do not shock me in the slightest.

 

Rather, it's the OVER-emphasis on the female form and the advertizing going way overboard in an attempt to get sex starved men to click on their link.  It would be one thing if it were on TV, and it was a realm woman, selling a real product.  But even TV doesn't go to the lengths that this game goes to.  You'll occasionally see David Beckham half naked as well, which is gross, but I am a straight guy.  I can see it go both ways, which makes a little sense.  However, this game makes an obvious attempt to make it go as far as they can towards the female focus.  They literally wrap the male avatars up in metal, where you can't even see their eyes.  Yet, the females are in some cases, not wearing anything at all.  They have breast sliders in character creation and the models were clearly designed to show 'bounciness' as they move about.  

 

My objection with the ads has nothing to do with the ads, I've seen them before.  It's what is present in the game.  It's absolutely stupid.  Where are the dick sliders?  I don't see sliders for girth and length.  I don't see them flopping around while the characters move.  They went as far as covering everything up to the point where there is no skin showing.  No, I don't want to see dicks, but the point is, I don't really want to see tits and ass either in a video game.  I can go watch porno or have sex with my girlfriend if I was interested in tits and ass.  

 

I've said this before.  This is where I have a little more respect for Age of Conan and Mortal Online.  Those titles pushed the edge, and while I don't play them now, I can see that they didn't shamelessly attempt to target 12 year olds and 40 year old virgins.

You don't seem to know anything about the actual game. There are no male avatars in the game and there are no breast sliders. There are sometimes nude female avatars and they all have bodies with a high degree of curviness.

Society tries really hard to make us all feel awkward and uncomfortable with nudity and sexuality, when they are really natural, positive aspects of being human. At the same time, violence is glorified to extreme levels, even though violence is at best a neccassary evil when it comes to self defence of person, family or nation and at worst an expression of pure evil made manifest.

The game may be goofy and sophomoric, but IMO it's good to see the game break through the barrier that has thus far held that nudity and sensuality in games should remain taboo. Hopefully someday it will unexceptional in games and media. Our cultural attitudes towards sex, sensuality and nudity are not at all healthy and lead to a lot of problems that just wouldn't exist otherwise.

I am a female gamer and Scarlet Blade turned me off from the first time I saw it.   It has nothing to do with being 'too adult' and more to do with just being 'too creepy'.   What is the point of having all the toons half-naked females?  It's degrading, tbh.  Would people play it if all the characters were dressed like nuns?????  If you're a chick and you play this then shame on you.

Fine but why make ALL the  characters female??? Why not show dudes with their cojones hanging out?

First, all the Avatars in the game are artificial, though self aware, beings. The Sentinel class is designed to look deceivingly innocent, while being a high DPS ranged threat. Besides, children just do not have bodies like that. In the game, they are the shortest class, but their lower bodies are just as exaggerated in their curviness as all the other characters and they clearly have breasts, though they are closer to being average sized breasts, rather than the overly-exagerated breast size of the other toons. Rather than an hourglass figure, they have a spoon shaped figure.

To me, they are a bit less "creepy" than the Elin in TERA. The Elin have a similar figure, but are pretty flat chested. The Sentinels in SB also don't utilize child like voices, which also makes them less "creepy". To this day people still argue over the "pedo nature" of the Elin in that game's chat, but the game is still around and no action has been taken.

Because the US developers knew that some people would still insist they were children, they modified the skins for the US/EU release so that they can never be truly nude and their body textures make their cybernetic form completely obvious.

I'd suggest that some people are seeing what they want to see when they start claiming the game depicts exploitation of children.

Because if many gamers aren't ready for breasts, even more aren't ready to see that. The game has a target audience and the niches they appeal to are the foundation for the business model. In a society as sexually repressed as ours, one step at a time. :)

I'm fine with mature adult content, but really am not fine with sexual discrimination, selling all the women full on skanky clothes in a MMO.

Heck, just don't even wear clothes anymore or watch some hentai.

 

How to be naked without being naked! LOGIC.

There is nothing adult about the game, and nothing mature about it either.

This game is aimed squarely at the younger audience who would and do get off on low polygon softcore porn.  Ok theres the pedo crowd too despite they de-nudified the preteen character like they had to do with tera (what the hell is going on over there in korea btw??)

I actually think the game would be a much better game if the focus was taken off nudity somewhat, at its root though its the same quest grinder game weve played for ages...just with heavy auto pathing and NPC's just call you when your done with your quest...so theres little back and forth, which imo is a massive improvement since back and forth between NPC's and mob fields gets so very old...

 

Anyway...play this game if you LOVE boob jiggle physics, skimpy outfits on the all female characters, and cash shop full frontal nudity...and...sigh...really young preteen girls i guess...even if they coverd them up a bit

 

This is a game that seems to be 100% built around anime-ish softcore porn, all the quest texts are chalked full of innuendos, just about every aspect revolves around boobs.  Even the puzzle picture rewards where you unlock pice by piece a porno photo of some ingame character or characters...its 100% the focus of the game.  It gets really old really fast since its always in your face reminding you why you should be playing, and its not for the game mechanics.

 

Anyway..i wish they would stop calling the game adult or mature, its the exact opposite. Certainly a LOT of gamers are enjoying the hell out of the game, from what i saw...which speaks louder than my opinion on whats going on in game there.
