    Safe to say clothing is optional in the future.

    So this is female characters only? What the hell? I hope the breast physics are above average!

    The gameplay is bland, the game selling point is TnA

    Those outfits are absurd;  I mean game-breaking absurd.  Guess I won't be playing this one.

    This is getting more and more ridiculous. I wonder  what for strange mind have this kind of game developers??  Obviously to replace lack of quality with nudity. If i wan't to watch naked girls jumping around i can go to millions of porn sites there is no need to create something so stupid

    You're really surprised?

    really..........

    and yes, I am sure they looked at other games .... Tera - SevenCore - Requiem - Mortal Online - WoW - Rift - FireFall

    All have less-than-Plate-armor protection

    It's not DAoC with up to the Neckline protection

    Right, because PVP is why anyone would play this, right?

     

    FYI for those that don't know, this is the "American" version of the MMO "Queen's Blade". Not sure if it has anything to do with the anime, but signs point to yes. If that's the case, gigantic anti-gravity balloons are actually the toned-down version of breasts in this universe. Guess they get credit for that much.

    "Players can engage in 1-on-1 duels, or in massive battlegrounds featuring 50 v 50, 80 v 80 players. There are also objective-based PvP matches which have additional conditions for victory aside from simply gathering kills."

     

    No thanks. I've been doing the "pre-mades and objectives" since Unreal Tournament 1999. Show me some deep world PvP and then I'll play your game.

    I am ok with skimpy liil outfits but come on.  At least we know who the game is marketed towards.

    Pretty sure they're censoring stuff as well. They censored some class, it simply looked ridiculous. Pictures at the link.

    The game seems to be boring tab target and asian styled combat with a grind, from a review I read. The over the top outfits was the only interesting part, so why censor it?

    Either way, not my type of game.

    Those uncensored pictures are just disturbing, the toon looks like a kid.  Seriously had enough of these nonce import games.

    In the screen pics the women are swordfighting wearing bikini's in which they have massive chest just flapping around.  

     

    I don't know why companies tend to do this, or who possibly finds this stuff appealing, but it screams stupidiity and desperation to me.

    I agree. There is nothing more cheesy than some 90lb big-boobed babe kicking ass. It's stupid.

    To keep it at least semi-realistic, but even a mere bow-wielding ranger would have to have an extremely strong body.

     

     

    I know these are fantasy games, but I at least want some element of grit and truth. This is a big reason why I don't delve into Asian MMOs, e.g., hard and weathered warriors...with perfectly plucked eyebrows and just enough "Axe Gel" for the perfect Justin Beiber haircut.

    Ugh. If I want to look at naked girls, I can watch porn. Keep the T and A out my games, thanks.

    Amazingly enough the story/lore on the website is some of the best written I've seen on this kind of F2P title; just goes to show you.
  • RoinRoin Baltimore, MDPosts: 2,926Member Uncommon
    Based off that anime Queens Blade if I recall correct. That explains the outfits.

    In War - Victory.
    In Peace - Vigilance.
    In Death - Sacrifice.

    Well, since the name of the game in korea is, in fact, Queens Blade, I would say so.

    Although I thik the game has more incommon with the original Japanese P&P RPG than the anime... don't ask me how I know this.

  • ShadanwolfShadanwolf Posts: 2,114Member Uncommon

    Knowing nothing about the game...but see the exagerations from the devs

    -oversized weapons

    -under sized clothing

    I can only conjecture:1) the game has so little to offer  that the devs feel they have to resort to those graphics 2) they have so little  respect for their target market that they think this will get them game sales.

  • nomadienomadie Lynnwood, WAPosts: 43Member Uncommon
    I tested the game and if you can get around the lack of clothing it's not a bad game, also this game is based off the anime/manga "Queens Blade" which they wear mostly nothing and fight a lot. Also you got people making Nude mods for mmorpgs and other games like Skyrim and this is bad? lol
