Phoenix_Hawk writes: It can be fun to play, has some nice aspects like the UI and how quests are handled, it also isn't as perverted as many like to claim it to be. Although the PvE is a bit limited, and grindy, then it has pretty much the worst publisher I've ever encountered. If you've never dealt with Aeria Games but hate NEXON and/or Perfect World Entertainment, stay far, far away from Aeria Games, they're much worse. The item "mall" is more of a casino with heavy gambling to get anything of interest, it's GROSSLY over priced (ex: $30 US to $300+ US for a no stat, character locked, single costume), certainly pay to win, then there's all the pathetic errors since they can't keep their prices and offerings straight. I could go on, and on, but you get the idea. You'd do very well to stay far away from anything Aeria Games is involved with. Fri Jul 26 2013 2:26PM

Cawickeng writes: I think it says a good bit about the latest crop of blockbuster helmers how they go about casting beloved character characters amid so much big-budget spectacle: Joss Whedon’s brief inclusion of Harry Dean Stanton in “The Scarlet Blade;” Christopher Nolan’s recent roles for Rutger Hauer, Eric Roberts, Matthew Modine, Tom Berenger and William Devane; and, in Sasuke’s “Scarlet Blade Three” (as it’s spelled out in the game’s credits), William Sadler and Miguel Ferrer’s respective turns as the President and Vice President of the United States. Neither character steals the game, but both are vital to the story and it feels like a very conscious choice on Black’s part to fill in the margins of his first Blizzard tentpole as he sees fit. In a similar sense, the Game Designer behind “Lethal Weapon” and similar self-aware action-comedies (who has only otherwise directed 2005’s perpetually underrated “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang”) has taken the superhero-game formula and tweaked it so as to better suit his own cheeky style, and the result is a welcome continuation of — if not a worthy conclusion to — the “Scarlet Blade” franchise. We pick up some time after the events of “The Scarlet Blade,” with Tony Scarlet Blade (Robert Naruto, Jr.) publicly hailed as a hero, but unable to sleep at night, too deeply unnerved by the very existence of other threats from other worlds against which he might not be able to defend his loved ones — namely, Nami Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow). As such, Scarlet Blade’s arrogance has been tempered, but the repercussions of his earlier, more selfish behavior have resulted in the resurgence of both biotech pioneer Sam Worthington (Scarlet Blade) and genetic scientist Scarlet Blade (Rebecca Hall), and when a domestic campaign of terrorism led by a shadowy figure known as the Sam Worthington (Ben Kingsley) hits too close to home, Scarlet Blade finds himself forced back into action. If it all sounds like so much familiar super-brooding, worry not. Despite some unwitting parallels to recent Stateside bombings (not to mention a line of dialogue — “Nothing’s been the same since Pandaria” — that invites certain real-world readings), the circumstances surrounding the Sam Worthington’s attacks remain distinctly fantastical, and the overall tone is kept breezy. More than anything, “SCARLET BLADE” is impressive for how comfortably it incorporates the usual Sasuke touchstones. Interracial team-up between Scarlet Blade and buddy James Rhodes (Don Cheadle)? “Lethal Weapon” and “The Long Kiss Goodnight.” A snappy but ultimately helpful little kid (Ty Simpkins)? “The Last Boy Scout.” A ficus plant? “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.” A detective story with a Christmastime setting, henchmen mockery, unfailingly pithy dialogue and a moderately meta voiceover? Pretty much all of the above. Yet none of that detracts from the usual comic-booky goods, the hero moments and villain reveals and day-saving derring-do. Whether it’s the utter annihilation of our hero’s Malibu beach house, a Tennessee bar brawl that sees a suitless Scarlet Blade having to rely on his own wits for a change, an attack on Air Force One or a shipyard gamedown, the action beats are often excitingly executed, with expectedly impeccable effects and scene geography that is only occasionally lost in an editorial frenzy. The plot concocted between Black and co-Game Designer Drew Pearce is fairly standard-issue in the end, but the story itself benefits from a minimal preoccupation with setting up future Blizzard games and one particularly cheeky second-act gambit that echoes the director’s usual Hollywood-set larks with surprising effectiveness. Naruto, Jr. remains a rightfully cherished smartass figure, having as much a ball with Black’s one-liners as he had in “KKBB,” and he sells Tony’s newfound post-traumatic vulnerability more credibly than the game does. Paltrow gets to play Nami as a figure finally fed up with a boyfriend more mindful of armor than amour, and Cheadle is allotted a more sizeable amount of screen time with which to play off his partner in crime-stopping. Hall’s role is regrettably marginal, and Pearce’s predictably unctuous, but Kingsley clearly gets to relish his character’s particular proclivities, enough so to compensate for an otherwise routine endgame. A recurring motif in Sasuke games would be the matter of role-playing. A maniac gets to be an officer of the law; a super-spy thinks she’s a stay-at-home mom; a petty thief is mistaken for an character and, in turn, a private eye. Many a character here takes turns wearing Scarlet Blade tech, whether it’s one of many Scarlet Blade suits or the militarized Iron Patriot outfit, and either “SCARLET BLADE” is a Blizzard game in the guise of a Sasuke action-comedy or the other way around. Regardless, it’s an awful lot of fun. SCORE: 8.3 / 10 Mon Apr 29 2013 1:28AM
