     True, but this game sucks every way possible. The only advantage is the naked women.

    this game is no better or worse than most other f2ps so your point is moot.

    It's more of a culture thing I wager.  Asians generally speaking have no tits or ass so they are featured a lot in their gaming.  Anyone been to Okinawa, Japan knows this.  While not all MMOs do the sex sales pitch I do see it a lot more of the bikini/cleavage in Asian MMOs, more so than American MMOs.

    Tera, AoC, Neverwinter, DCUO, Anarchy, and Raiderz are just a few F2P games that easily say differently to your 'mootness'.

    im assuming you meant all those games are much better than Scarlet Blade to which i have to disagree, especially with Tera/Raiderz since those are the only 2 i've played from that list of games. Tera is a beautiful looking game, but its just a generic mmo with no real staying power. Raiderz same thing really. It's not great at all, just average, which is just what this game is. Just another run of the mill average game.

     Wait, wait, wait. Are you saying that an ultra linear game like Scarlet Blade has more staying power than Tera Online? Where's your logic? Have you even tried playing Scarlet Blade? It's a terrible game. It's tab targeting bs with mindless grinding that has little to no effort required. At least Raiserz and Tera Online require brainpower to even play.

     The only thing you can do when you assume is to make an, "ass out of and me". So please, before you state that Scarlet Blade is on level ground as these games at least have some basic understanding as to why they're good games to begin with.

     Just because a game is F2P don't mean they're all generic pieces of garbage. I'll do you a favor and tell you to go download that trash Scarlet Blade then after you stomached that piece of trash you think's a game. I'll tell you to download Tera Online and ask you to play it. After you've don't both I want you to tell me which game game is better. Because There's no way in hell someone with a proper and logically thinking mind would state that Scarlet Blade is even on level footing with Tera and Raiderz.

     If you're too lazy to play the games. Here are videos of each:

    Tera Online

    Raiderz Online

    Scarlet Blade

    (There are no videos on youtube for gameplay trailers, but here's a high level one)

     

     

    Just for you to understand what you think of F2P:

    http://www.archeage.com/en

     You miss out on shining gems that end up becoming some of the most unique and original games on the market. So don't compare a trash knockoff that takes advantage of an audiance based only on sex appeal to actual AAA titles worth a customers time.

    Im sorry, for making yet another assumption, but it sounds almost to me as if you think Tera and Raiderz are ESPECIALLY good mmorpgs. They are not.

     

    I am in no way saying they are bad games persay, i'm saying they're merely average. So is Scarlet Blade. They don't have any stating power. Not much allure to them. Tera has its graphics, scantily clad women, Elins, and combat as its main allure to the game. Look past those and you've got "more of the same, but without polish". Tera is nothing special, and i say this as someone who's currently playing Tera, Level 60 with full regent gear working towards Visionmaker.

     

    Raiderz is even worse then Tera.

     

    Archage, im not gonna talk about as i haven't played it and my hands are full atm with other things to jump into another new game. If you jumped into Scarlet Blade and expected truly innovative or great combat, you have issues. If you jumped into it expecting it for what it was, you'll realize it's not much better or worse than Tera, Raiderz or 90% of any other f2p out there as i said in my last post.

    meh iv played SB up to about lv 20.. game is ok from a gamer/mmo point of view... they went way too noob on it though, as there is auto pathing to npcs/quest marks/quest targets.. you can literally play it on auto pilot

    so as a game/mmo is rather unimpressive.  as for the smut.. meh unless you are a 12yr boy its not that impressive either lol. its like watching a very heavy fan service anime :/  the audio ques for pain and even some of the very limited voice over work for npcs is dripping with piss poor smut attempts. 

     

    (oh ya the npcs have like 30s of voice over.... rather pathetic and feels thrown on for kicks)

     

    all in all, i wouldnt call it an MMO or a porno.. as its rather impressive and lack luster in both regards. 

     

    but by all means if you are a 12yr over sex driven boy the game will keep you entertained for hours.... ~facepalm~

    LOOOL if you don't like it, don't play it.  Like, honestly.

     

    Grow up kids, learn to walk away if you don't like something. Nobody is forcing you to play the game.

    See how many people will play it.

     Did I say they were the best MMO's I've ever played? No.

     Are you once again comparing two good games to a bad game? Yes.

     Are you assuming once again? Yes.

     The reason I chose Tera and RaiderZ to be compared to Scarlet Blade is because they're some of the more recent F2P games on the market. So please, will you get your head out of your ass and see straight? Look at the gameplay for Tera Online, RaiderZ, heck look at Guild Wars 2, if you want to look at a different "F2P" game and then look at Scarlet Blade. Scarlet Blade is based off of MMO's that are 8+ years old. With the only added factor of sex appeal.

    At least Tera Online and RaiderZ have great PvP and gameplay mechanics. What other MMO's have action based controls as fluid and freeformed as them?

    Did I expect Scarlet Blade to be truly innovative? Absolutely not. I expected the exact opposite and was 100% right with my expectation. However, I don't not even remotely come close to comparing Scarlet Blade to an average game. I'd easily Give Scarlet Blade a 1/5 for its overall gameplay. They didn't try in any degree. Even the graphics sucked, which is a compete contradiction to what every other mmo developer is trying to go for these days.

     Scarlet Blades has an unimaginative game design with nothing that stands out from the crowd unless you consider it's poor gameplay and graphics as standing out from the crowd. The tab targeting combat to the ultra linear progression. It's old ontop of old ontop of old crap.

    It's far below most games especially F2P wise that have come out recently. I don't know how you are even comparing it to F2P titles when they're pushing the bar more than the supposed "AAA" developers are these days.

    Even if the games that are coming out aren't completely original they're pushing the bar in one way or another. Which already puts them ahead of the others. Scarlet Blade isn't raising the bar in any catagory. Whether it be graphics, gameplay, unique game mechanics, pvp, not even character models. There's nothing good about it.

    There are porn MMOs in the Asian market. Frankly, I find them REALLY creepy and kind of twisted.  SB is kind of sexed up in art and innuendo but I'd not call it a porn MMO.

    sooner or later everyone gonna do sex at some point... i find it cliche and stupid taboo to hide sex like its something bad... all these problems are complexing taboos coming from the church. there is nothing more natural than the sexual attraction and sex.

    They can put all the semi naked or naked women they want in this game but it is still an awful end product. Nudity isn't going to save it.

    Yup, but if we can create controversy be equating it to porn (leading to the obvious Mah Phreedum of Speche Protest Anti-PC red herring), no one will notice that we're marketing a complete hunk of junk.

    We hope.

    It's as much an MMO as 2-Headed Shark Attack http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2043757/  is a movie. Some how there's no outcry against stupidity and objectification of women after movies like that.

    I've been playing this game to check it out lately and my 2 cents on the subject is if anyone thinks this game is porn in any way they have either never played it or they have no clue what porn is. This game isn't even remotely pornographic. It's "cheesecake" at best. It's the same level as the nose art they were putting on bombers in World War II. The only character that could be considered Pedophile material is the Sentinal as all of the others are definitely representations of full grown women unless preteens are now sporting "E" sized hooters and nobody told me about it. As I said the Sentinal does push it a bit.

     

    The main thing this game does is exaggerate what was already in MMOs to begin with. It just takes skimpy female MMO armor and pushes it into the realm of the ludacris. Nothing in this game takes itself too seriously. It doesn't pretend to be anything other than what it is. This game goes where others fear to tread. It's kinda funny actually. If they chose to exaggerate the violence nobody would have had an issue but because they decided to exaggerate the sexuality that already exists in most MMOs some people think that is awful.

And yes i mean 12+ who thought about sex when they were atleast 12, or even younger? who wanted to do it? yes exactly. Also people are saying that its wrong for "child-like avatars" to be portrayed sexually, well, once again look at the rest of the internet. Before a games actually content is unfairly judged.

      It is well documented that children are being sexualised and desensitised to sex at an earlier and eariler age, and thats not good.  The internet is a big cause, and it is why responsible parents use parental controls, but thats only at home..  Children will have sexual thoughts, but that doesnt give licence for adults to market to this, they are CHILDREN, they are learning - porn isnt learing for example.  Playing games that are 17+ rated with sexual avatars with assumable adults is repulsive (imo)

    Perhaps you should take a look at the game itself cause you are drawing conclusions that don't seem to make much sence: http://www.aeriagames.com/playnow/sbus/3?utm_source=googlesearch&utm_campaign=sbusother&utm_medium=branded (0:16 the actuall game)

    Seems Tekken, StreetFighter and similar fighting games that come to mind, they also have these schoolgirl like outfits but in clearly adult body's. The Scarlet Blade adds again show to me very adult body's. So you have to wonder where your mind is at?

    Oh and responsable parents talk to their childern, they will talk about the good things about sexuality and also bring up bad things about sexuality. You (commonly speaking) don't need parental control when raising your kids properly. Make them understand the difference and if they are confronted with something sexuality, be open and talk about it.

    It excists regardless if we like or dislike it, trying to hide it doesn't do anyone any good, it actually works in reverse, the more you shield your kids from certain things the bigger change curiosity takes over. Of course that doesn't mean you have to show everything to your kids, but that should be very obvious as thats the responsable parent way.
