OP  3/30/13 5:00:29 PM#1

I am at a loss for words on how a company can sell sex to mainly kids just for a fast buck, I have seen some pretty strange things in my time playing MMO but this games advertisements takes the cake lol.

Man oh man I can see now why women get offended, we as a people use them as objects to sell things, do those devolpers even have daughters, wives, mothers lol, no wonder we as a people are so messed up, look at how they sell a video game, what's next, posters of a half nude chic eating a Big Mac on a Mcdonalds poster outside of a drive though or how about nipple pasties on Wendy from the fast food join Wendy's, yeah that will sell some double cheeseburgers lol.

We live in sad, sad time people, very sad lol.

yes..........the scarlet blade ads are pretty dumb. Very dimeaning to women if you ask me.

 

Waht a cheep way to advertise a video game. I guess they need to do what they need to do since the gameplay and publisher are both rumble.

Well, that's one point of view. This is not my sort of game but I say "go kids, have fun and someday you will have the real thing".

Also "I know porn and this is not porn".

'Sandbox MMO' is a PTSD trigger word for anyone who has the experience to know that anonymous players invariably use a 'sandbox' in the same manner a housecat does.


No game is more fun than the one you can't play, and no game is more boring than the one you've become familiar with.

Sex has been used to sell almost everything for years upon years..even games.

 

If youre not used to it by now, I dont know what to tell you.

Someone obviously has never watched porn.

Contrary to what some people think, video games aren't just for kids anymore.  The avergae gamer is in their 30's.  Yes, it looks sexist.  Yes, it looks like utter crap.  The great thing is if you don't like it then you don't have to buy it.  If enough people do this then the game will die.  If that doesn't happen and it becomes popular...yay capitalism?  Different strokes () for different folks.

 

Edit:  I bet the OP has no problem killing thousands of virtual people and creatures in an MMO but boobies???  STOP THE FREAKING BUS!!! 

Is a man not entitled to the herp of his derp?

Remember, I live in a world where juggalos and yugioh players are real things.

Seeing as the game is based on Queen's Blade, think it's pretty spot on after looking it up. Most anime is over the top, why would the video game be any different.

Personally, tried the game myself and it's just your regular F2P game on what you'd expect.

"Demeaning towards women" I don't know, it's probably more demeaning towards men that they think such cheap tactics work and that they do lol.

Uh oh, they crossed the invisible arbitrary line that OP drew in invisible sand.  Sex sales, blame the people buying, they create the market.  

In the meantime, take a look at the games your playing and realize they glorify violence and murder... Something that should be far worse than sexuality.  Why is exploiting one ok but not the other?  The US is so backasswards on sexuality and violence that its ridiculous.

The answer is because its just a damned video game. It's fantasy make believe, get over it.

Sex sells. Sex sales is related, but... different.

Not commenting about the "game" but rather about that stupid example you gave of a BK commercial..

If this was a guy in a taco commercial with similar innuendo people likw you would still bitch and moan that it objectifies women. Women can and do enjoy sexuality just as men do, sex sells to both sexes the fact that the target audience of a game is mostly teen-age males with some disposable income does not mean that the developers/marketing people are some sexist pigs.

The sad part is that when femenism started it was about the libiration of women a key part of which was the liberation of their sexuality. Now we have insane women crying about objectification(when they objectify themselves just as much if not more than males) , and more importantly men with a white knight(or in most cases just pure old mysagonism) complex thinking they have to be the vanguard of every pair of boobs on the planet.

Women are quite capeable of taking care of themselves, heck they have been running the pron industry since the late 80's, and in advertisements women and gay men are 3 times most likely to add sexual context to the add(at least in copyrighting) than straight men.

If you care so much about social equality find a cause that will be actually worth to fight for, there are plenty of god honest battles out there. Saying look guys we are bad cuz we like big boobs is pointless, either you are one of those man that want  women to get back in the kitchen wearing a chastity belt. Or you one of those guys that is so incapable of finding a women that you think point guarding for their sex will help you score.

Both men and women are capable of handling their sexuality on equaly, i see no issue of having sexual content in a game which is aimed at a sufficiently mature audience. I doubt you have any reservation to the fact that male characters in most games(well western games at least) look like the love baby(unless you are a republican than replace that with the spawn of satan) of a 3 times olymic swimmer and an underwear model. But oh noes some another cheep game tries to get some more players with big boobs and slutty outfits, call the PC hotline we have a really bad case of sexism!

/sigh

Yeah but the rating is useless, I remember when I was a kid I use to con my mother into letting me buy and rent r rated movies and games, well the games at that time didn't have ratings but you know what  I mean.

Kids will find a way to play, nowdays we download everything anyways, all that stop a kid is a age verification, how many under aged kids just input "Yes" I am over the age of 18, hell I cought my 13 year old son watching porn on his I phone  few weeks ago lol

Well, you can't remove your avatars clothes without paying at least $20 otherwise the underware is locked in place.

So, people that are going to see any kind of nudity in the game are those that pay for it.

As for degrading women, I know quite a few lesbians that love this game and cheer that someone finally came up with it..
