    I like seeing sexed up women looking all hot. What's wrong with that?

    If you dont like to watch half naked women with huge asses and boobs, then dont. As long as these games dont encourage some questionable or disturbing activities, it really is up to the person who chooses to play these game, I dont see the need for some silly crusade against the game when you choose to install it and play it.

     

    There's games where you kill police officers by hundreds or cut innocent human beings into pools of gory mess, those games ofcourse are just good entertainment because there's no boobs involved.

     

    Lets ban porn while we're at it, there's boobs and there's cocks too, now that's something we havent seen in games that much, cocks, I'd like to see the feedback what that game would have should it ever arrive, especially if the cocks will be out of proportions... But there's not enough (scantily clad) slutty girl gamers to offer large enough audience for the cocked game to be profitable so we can only speculate ;(

    couldn't agree more, primetime television is full of cops n robbers shows with gun wielding psycho's and once again it's nothing to do wih them :)

    You guys shouldnt listen what people say. GW2 sold maybe 3mil copies, but yet not even 200k players are online at peak times.

    I will probably try it out- to see what it really offers behind big boobs and tight asses.

    Tera: Skimpy Outfits, Panties Showing, BOOBIES> O_o
    Vindictus Vella Character: Boob Slider, Goodness. xD - nakedness.
    Age of Conan: Fully NAKED: Boobies. ;D

    ehem*


    As an Anime-fan id consider 'Scarlet's Blade' to be the equivalent of the anime 'Queens-Blade', I wouldn't put it in the 'Hentai' Category. Alas- I'm afraid I have to agree, a step too far indeed. I don't mind boob-sliders, and panties~ and some nudity.~ Even in Age of Conan: Full on BREASTNESS.


    I have nothing more to say, other than a quote i found on YT.
    "I think end game content will involve your entire party's? mech morphing into one giant boob."

    Had to check. Sure as stuffing that IS the official wiki entry for the Defender class:

    Amazing. :)

    No lady I thnk  the future of mankind rests on the floor. Get a mop.

    I don't take Scarlet Blade any more seriously than I do slasher flicks but if people can't at least acknowledge how absurdly over the top this is something is very wrong.

    Bill you pegged it, uh metaphorically speaking.

    I am looking forward for Scarlet Blade and again I will stress that I dont care how women are represented in video games. Its VIDEO GAMES people. If you care about women that much, go ahead and represent them fairly in mediums where there is a REAL LIFE representation of them or in academic circles.

    I have no idea why mods edited that part of my reply.

    Lets be honest, almost every game uses ads with chicks showing clevage.  Look at the Neverwinter or STO ads from Cryptic.  Those pictures dont even have anything to do with the game.  AoC had naked boobs, Mortal Online has penis.  This is the road we are on and I would not be surprised to see a mainstream MMO focused on Sex in the next decade with full frontal nudity and achievements for shagging your friends. 

    (No, Sexcraft is NOT a mainstream MMO)

    Sex MMOs need to take baby steps too.

     

    This is a sprinkle of evolution for the porn game genre. To condemn it is to condemn porn.

    It is not what you think. They are simply thinking ahead on animation costs and the inevitible clipping issuse that seem to plague so many titles.

    You cant have clothing clipping issuse when you have virtually no clothing, amarite?!

    All die, so die well.

    And another thing. In Age of Conan you can run around fully naked and lob people's heads off. That aslectwas awesome, but the game itself was horrible. This should be no different...

    Not fully naked, just topless. I used to play Age of Conan. Female characters  do wear black thongs as underwear, just like the make characters wear loin clothes. The point of Age of Conan was that both male and female characters could be topless.

    I'm of the believe that what is good for a man, is good for a woman. So if a woman shouldn't go around topless, the same should go for a man. Most people would think nothing of a topless man, but I have never meet a woman that wasn't turned on by rippling biceps and  six pack abs. Its pretty much a double standard.

    No one would have a problem with Scarlet Blade, if it was a bunch of topless buff dudes. Running around with giant swords. Its just because they are female characters, is  the reason why people are so bothered by it.

    When we get back from where we are going, we will return to where we were. I know people there!

    Why can't yet have full ingame sex between avatars? Why we have to resort to a teenage-ish view of sexuality? Single player games are advancing more in this sense...

    Why not? If they are going to remake DaoC a game with vast limitations that started the downward slide of guiderail themepark games...why not a game with cleavage...sure didnt hear people rail against Age of Conan with its nipples.

    I will wager this game has far more players than TES and Camelot Unchained because more people would even rather play a game with bouncing boobies and meh gameplay than play DaoCs outdated vastly limiting close off faction lands and spoon fed content leading to PvP carrot on a stick.

    Maybe this game is ahead of the curve and an example of what we expect our women to wear in real life in the near future...

    I'm not sure what to say, but the article did make me laugh... And facepalm, a fair bit.

    I am the husband to a wonderful wife and a father to the most amazing daughter ever. I too agree that the objectifcation of women is in bad taste at a minimum.

    But....untill I hear you decry SI and their swimsuit issue, or Playboy, or the GoDaddy.com adds, the claims you make against this or any other game that contains scantily clad women, are lip service paid to the cause. For shame. I say again For shame.

    I like most all of what you have to say Bill Murphy, but I lean on a leg of integruity, either stand against all objectification, of hush up.

    I all understood was: "Look at me, I'm one of those sensitive men, everyone pay attention to me!  Are you looking?  LOOK AT ME! I AM EVOLVED!  PLEASE GOD PAY ATTENTION TO ME!"

    But on topic... regardless of the jiggly bits being all jiggly, the game looks incredibly vapid.

    Was kind of expecting information about the actual gameplay.  Sex in marketing isn't new and it isn't going away.  Hell even adult game makers have said that in the past they mostly targeted men but going forward they are developing erotic games targeted at women.

    Pretty much the entire entertainment industry(not only adult) is about objectifying and selling people.

    If you wanted to do an editorial about that do it, but if you are going to do an article about a game how about you actually talk about the gameplay.

     

    It is a game targeted at specific segment of the market.  Just like the DOA fighting games, doesn't mean the game isn't good.  Which is why we would have liked more info about whether or not the actual gameplay is any good.

    If you think this is bad you should try watching the anime its based off of.

    I would just like to point out in order to be a good editor Bill needs to read all kinds of publications. Trade journals, reference books, nudie magazines (but only the articles).

    Graky you STOOPID :p

    For all those guys who answer "why do you play a female character?" with "I prefer to stare at a females butt rather than a males." Well.. heres a game specifically for you.
