    This thread is still going?

    Never saw so many people get hard up on cartoon boobs since Hentia first hit the local nerd shops, I mean anime stores here in the states...and they all raged with stiffies on top of it, just to hide the fact they were going to buy some, take it home, lock the door and turn the lights out as they watched it.

    There was the same objection to violence once apon a time in games, but guess what money and lobbying won, and now we have ultra violent games targetting children directly, and that is certainly damaging for young children and why parents really should take ownership of sensorship to protect their chidren since the game industry has failed.  Now rightly we have people raising concerns about this repugnant and vile sexual advertising directed at children, equally disgusting. 

    If I was associated with this product either directly or indirectly through advertising I would be absolutely ashamed of myself quiet frankly, life isnt all about money.  I wonder if the publishers of these games and adverts feel its appropriate that their own children play this game.

     I keep seeing this canard. For the most part violence is handled responsibly. We kill enemies and monsters. When games like Postal mowing down marching bands  and the grand theft auto running over hookers thing come out society does question it. How many mainstream games have you seen about roasting Jewish people in ovens and lynching Black people have you seen? Rape, torture, and genocide aren't topics commonly seen in  gaming. Yeah it gets over the top sometimes but there are limits.

    What part of violence is reponsible?

    Either way it isn't like the game is rated T. This shouldn't even matter.

    The depiction of violence in gaming. You know, the part I was clearly talking about. It matters. First because the ratings are often ignored guidelines and second because some things are wrong no matter how old you are.

    I really don't think a person who has such a blatant double standard between violence and sexuality should be dictating what is and isn't morally acceptable in a game rated for adults. If you don't like a game don't play it.

     What double standard? Excessive is excessive. I'm not aware of dictating anything. Have my death squads arrived to check your computer or what? Or is any discussion that permits the concept of morals and responsibility to enter it forbidden?

    There is no double standard I agree.  A line can be drawn somewhere that I wont try to define that marks where gameplay crosses into violence not suitable for children, e.g space invaders is clearly destroying and killing, but its clearly not violent.  Same goes for sexualisation, except sexualisation is never part of gameplay it is added purely to sexualise and not to improve the game quality - it has no place in childen gaming, especially while it targets children.  Disgusting.

    OP, if you gonna play it normal way - it's an MMO, but if you gonna fk it up - it's can be porn.=XD

    so all will depend of your playing ability.=D

    beside, TBH, it's not even the first Asian MMO with half naked females, at least I saw tons of them, so nothing new.

    try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.
    Worst surprises for me: Aion, GW2

    lol then either its aiming at those with a wee taste for peodophilia, or the advertising is aiming for teenagers and knowing all too well it appeals to teenagers not adults (which is ofc the case). Have you not seen them? they were pretty disturbing.

    Put it this way, do you really think the average of gamer playing this game is over 17?  and if it was, do you think a game full of adults playing these chars is healthy?!

    I've seen far worse in advertising, as for the pedo issue the models don't even look remotely childish. So far I haven't seen any ads that disturbed me from this game.

    Teenagers have parents it is up to them to monitor what their child does. Also many adults like this stuff, if the game was decent i'd play it too. I see no issue since it doesn't contain rape or children.

    Again it is what it is, get over it.

    I dont need to get over anything, my opinion is that the models were childish and disturbing, and certaily not adult like. Parents should take responsiblity, but that does not excuse the sexualisation of models cleary aimed at children.

    Peoplo can have their own opinions, of course, but i think complaining about this game (or any game like this) is... Hypocrite.

    Why? Because sex is used everywhere, all the time, to sell things. Think about any kind of product or service, there are thousand of ads about that product or service that use sex to sell it.

     

    Not only that: tv presenters, actors, hell even news presenters are never ugly (not non-handsome / pretty, UGLY).

     

    If we lived in a world where anyone, no matter their appearance, could be a public image, and we all didn't really care about appearance i would understand this complaint. But things are not like that. So this complaint is hypocrital.

     

    Go out there to change the world and stop losing both your time and ours.

  • BladestromBladestrom edinburghMember Posts: 5,001 Uncommon
    If you think its not the sexualisation of childen (i.e under 18) why dont you go have a we search on scarlet blade screenshots, some chars look older, some are certainly models of under age children defined in a sexual manner.

    None of what you followed that statement up with proves any hypocrisy at all.

    Ye that argument boils down to accept sexualisation of childen because its happening elsewhere - so stop moaning. Worrying.

    Well said OP. It's really disheartening to watch the ongoing assault on the moral fabic of society.

    Do you even pay attention to whats going on in the world? Violence is the ongoing assault, not sex. If you were truly worried about societies moral fabric you would be railing against the excess violence in everything. Commercials, movies, games, TV shows, ect.

    I find it ironic the same people who think a nude woman / man is destroying society but dont bat an eyelash about their kids watching violent media or playing violent games.

    I am American and I honestly do not understand this country anymore. A pair of Titties gets people so outraged, yet violence permeates everything and no one cares.

    Yeah well thats what happens when people not only think its OK for anyone to own a gun, but it is enshrined in law.....

     Maybe we don't want to get over it. Maybe we want it to change and not just in games. Maybe our opinions shouldn't be dismissed or supressed any more than yours. I've seen far worse than blatant racism in advertising and cartoons from the fourties and fifties. Does that make these things OK?  Do we bring back the buck toothed four eyed Japanese racial stereotypes? How about the huge lipped sambo stereotypes? Do we bring those back too? Would those be OK in a MMO? Should we go back to that or continue to evolve past it? After all I've seen worse. Much worse.

    The blatant objectification of women is bad. The women may not be real but the attitudes are.

    Indeed lol.  Example, Semi automatic guns used to kill children in schools, everyone is rightly up in arms about this and start to talk sensibly about banning such things, and then you allow money and coporations who sell guns to pervert this decision.  Insane and corrupted and why it is one of the most hated countries in the world (unfairly so in balance)

     In the United States fists kill twice as many people as guns every year. Lets outlaw fists. That will solve the oversexualization issue too.

    It's not okay for criminals and crazy people  to own guns. It's illegal. So how are those laws they're not even bothering to enforce working out for you? Because they're not working for me. It's OK for me to own a gun. I'm not going to shoot anyone unless they're trying to hurt someone. Not even by accident. Feel better? You should, if you live near me my gun makes you safer even if I never have to use it.

    To the question in the title:

     

    To the people who are up in arms about this game: Congratulations, you've made sure a hell of allot more people have heard and will likely try this game out than they would've if no one made a fuss.

     

    To the people who say the "models are obviously based on children!" .. -sighs- some of you guys need to go get checked, pronto, the elins were bad enough but seeing this

    as a child when you don't see this

    the same way speaks to something really broken upstairs (oh she has a baby face? sure that's a reason to say the models are based on children, not like there are millions of people out there with baby faces, myself included).

    Simply amazing what people freak out about these days. Hope you don't outside such as to the beach - probably see more there than in this video game. Maybe might want to avoid all the advertisement on TV and in the outside world as well. Hell just paint your walls white, write your opinions on it, and stare at it. Seems to work great for narrow minded people.

    If people put this much effort in a cause that actually mattered, maybe you would see change.

    Yeah well thats what happens when people not only think its OK for anyone to own a gun, but it is enshrined in law..... 

     In the United States fists kill twice as many people as guns every year. Lets outlaw fists. That will solve the oversexualization issue too.

    It's not okay for criminals and crazy people  to own guns. It's illegal. So how are those laws they're not even bothering to enforce working out for you? Because they're not working for me. It's OK for me to own a gun. I'm not going to shoot anyone unless they're trying to hurt someone. Not even by accident. Feel better? You should, if you live near me my gun makes you safer even if I never have to use it.

    its ok to have semi automatic guns that have been used to kill children because hey lots of people get killed by fists too (and guns are big profit)

Man oh man I can see now why women get offended, we as a people use them as objects to sell things, do those devolpers even have daughters, wives, mothers lol, no wonder we as a people are so messed up, look at how they sell a video game, what's next, posters of a half nude chic eating a Big Mac on a Mcdonalds poster outside of a drive though or how about nipple pasties on Wendy from the fast food join Wendy's, yeah that will sell some double cheeseburgers lol. We live in sad, sad time people, very sad lol.

    Well said OP. It's really disheartening to watch the ongoing assault on the moral fabic of society.

    Do you even pay attention to whats going on in the world? Violence is the ongoing assault, not sex. If you were truly worried about societies moral fabric you would be railing against the excess violence in everything. Commercials, movies, games, TV shows, ect.

    The laws aren't enforced because successive U.S government have systematically neuteured the agency that is supposed to enforce them the ATF.

    While I personally thinkt here should be limits of what tyhpes of weapons shoudl be available for private use and maybe even the number in each household I think that's nowhere near as important as creating a national database for registered weapons and owners coupled with comprehensive backgroudn checks.No law abiding citizen has anything to fear from those two things IMO .

    I also think there should be less emphathisis on owning weapons as a right and more on weapon owning as a responsibility and grerater consequences for not living up to those responsibilities.

    Back to the original topic though.I personally never saw any of the models as children personally even though there are soem more petite models for some of the classes,there is also more petite women out there too so it never occrued to me.

    Of course this accusation is made about anything anime related and may have some merit and so argument in discussion is healthy.I don't have any problem with expressions of sexuality personally and can also tellt he difference between reality and fantasy.I do not think we shoudl censor games just because parents are to lazy to actually supervise their children.I do mine.No nanny state thank you.

    I bet you dont have children.  You post is horrifying btw, you would allow games to be marketed to children in this form, really? (and there are far younger models in scarelt than the above, which is borderline as it is quite frankly.  The difference with the image at the bottom is that it is not aimed at children (or worse, was it?)

    If you do have children, would you show them the above image?  bet you wouldnt, so ask youself why.
