Does a sexy beautiful animated woman in a game's advertisement mean the game will be aweful?

    It seems the more tits and ass in the cover art the less the game has to offer.  It mostly offends me that men do not have costumes in equal to women.  I'll play a crappy game with "girlish" male sex appeal over a really good game with juggling breasts and hulk males.  So the tits and ass did not sell for me.

    I believe that joke was rather tasteless.

    I really miss EQ back when Verant ran the show, went downhill so fast afterwards.

    In defense of AoC, they didn't resort to plastering pictures of semi-naked ladies on the box. In fact, the only things on the cover of my copy are a sword and a mammoth. I think they went more for the blood-and-gore angle rather than t&a.

    Well, considering this is about game advertisement rather than box art...

    Thanks for posting this pic!  I was just about to ;)  They did some even hotter pics of her that were amazing..

    Indeed, and my recollection is that the advertisements for the game played more on blood and guts and than tits and ass. I don't think that bare breasts were used as the "biggest selling point" by the game's promoters. However, it may have been the biggest "buying point" for many of the game's players.

    The crappier the game, the bigger the breasts in the adverts.

    I seriously think people post this just to troll.

     

    Verant was never a separate company. SCEA spun off a start up company to create a number of console games called 989 studios. That company created the prototype for EverQuest and the parent executives decided it was not going to fit under the console 989 brand, so they made Verant. Later Verant became SOE. Verant was run by Sony employees from the start.

    Verant was never an independent design studio and SOE did not buy/steal/absorb Verant. SOE IS Verant. They just changed the name.

    '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.


    When your head is stuck in the sand, your ass becomes the only recognizable part of you.


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