They have no shame..  This is getting ridiculous in my opinion.

EDIT: The second one I'll just start with false advertising.  I know.. I'm being lame.  Still, even after the article about it here, I can't believe what I'm seeing.  They're taking the "Sex Sells" to the extreme.  But I guess we already knew that.

EDIT 2:  Aaaaand all I'm doing is giving them free advertising.  Alrighty then.  Don't mind me.

    Your posts are just giving the game free exposure and hype.

    I am curious to check the game out for the only reason that - I want to see what all of the fuss is about.

     

     

    PS - All mammals have nipples.

    Get over it already.

    So don't play it then. People speak with their wallets, words are worthless. So unless you're willing to buy that ad space and pay mmorpg.com you've really got no business telling them how they should pay their bills.

    Just realized that and edited my OP to include that fact.  You're exactly right and I am done.  =)

    Sex sells, and I don't mind that they are advertising it... I do however expect them to actually offer nudity and sex as part of their product if that is what they are marketing with. Go ahead and make a fully functional MMO with a working hentai sex emulator on the side... Otherwise, stop teasing poorly informed teens, any of them can google hentai and find plenty of games and media that expressly satisfy that interest if they want it.

    Teasing sex and not offering has little lasting impact...

    Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes.
    That way, if they get angry, they'll be a mile away... and barefoot.

    Wait... those are the ads for Scarlet Blade at http://scarletblade.aeriagames.com?

    Interesting! I need to check that out!

    There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein

    So I tried the game....yeah...don't waste your time.

    Most of the ads I see for games I don't know about already have the same sort of sexual aspect to them. A woman crouching over a speeder bike, huge breasts and pictures of woman in places where it just doesn't fit. I get amused by them all the time.

    They have to get attention somehow or no one will play lol.

    The best way to reduce the effectiveness of a meme (or ad) is to talk about it, right?

    "And here, according to Trout, was the reason human beings could not reject ideas because they were bad...[continue]" -Kurt Vonnegut

    Unlike most, I reject bad ideas because they're bad and accept good ideas because they're good, and it doesn't matter who's saying it; only the truth matters.
