    You mean, playing for years until eventually you reach max level, which is aproximately when the fun starts? Try Aion anyways, I don't know if it's fun or not, but it will take you years to find that out. Meanwhile, Archage will be released and you won't have to wait anymore.

     

    where fun starts?

    do you even lift?

    I dont see the problem in adding a "red light district" to the game, really.. In almost every mmo you're able to take off your clothes and run butt-naked to then dance in "public areas" turning places temporarily into a red light district. I'm pretty sure everyone encountered this in whatever mmo they were playing at the time. I guess they should start banning people who do so..

    Game was already awesome. This just made it better. Hopefully this will keep all those 30 year old children that think showing skin in video games is evil but they're perfectly okay with blood, gore and mutilation in their video games.

Yet you try to generalize based on your own narrow minded views of what the world is. I take it you've never spent anytime engrossed in the secular culture of the states, because it's no where near as prudish as you choose to believe.

    I am sorry I am calling BS on this, sex in america is still taboo, compared to many other places. We now have time delay in superbowl airing because of a "wardrobe malfunction". Sex is still very much sensored in this country.  Go travel to places, you will see how conservative the USA really is on it. Of course there are places much stricter than the USA on this subject, but as a country as a whole we are still very much very conservative on sexuality.

    I wouldn't buy the game if this were in it.

    Love all the 2 post count accounts posting to defend this.

     

     

    All of you folks that are so worked up about boytritis' comment...   None of you are married or have children, do you?  If you did you would understand how disrespectful it is to them.

  • Lovely_LalyLovely_Laly genevaPosts: 734Member

    seems to be a funny game=D

    I hope all male audience will rush there, hehe

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

    Thousands of people die every day due to gun violence and murder, this is portrayed constantly in games and is okay, is that disrespectful to every person who has suffered due to violence and murder?

     

    If you find this revolting and upsetting and disrespectful but not murdering everything in the game or killing of fellow player characters in game, then you have confusing morals. 

     

    Darkfall just came out, it's a game that encourages ganging up, killing players and stealing everything they own. That should really bother you if you have a problem with sex in games. 

     

    Every MMO should bother you and this site endorses MMOs, boycott MMORPG!!!

    I think you misunderstand, because I do believe murder is even more deplorable.  However I don't think that all mmos ar about murder, though to be sure some are.  On those I do agree with you.

     

    But this begs the question, do you agree with what I said?  Because both are certainly worse together than one by itself.  Bringing up murder in no way detracts from the fact that you are disrespecting your wife if you support things like this.

    I sort of don't believe this is real lol. I can't imagine this being in AA, if it is then wow. Either way, I don't really care if there's a prostitution district in the game but I would be less annoyed by it if they actually stuck to the setting/theme of the game. The entire game is like, ancient/medieval/a very little steampunk. The way that looks, is way too modern...Doesn't really make any sense visually. I mean that one girl is literally wearing a denim skirt with a leather belt, and fishnets. No, just no.

    If you look at Age of Wushu, brothels exist but all the courtesans/prostitutes are dressed appropriately for the Ming Dynasty era of prostitution & brothels. ArcheAge needs to stick to their setting & visual theme when it comes to this type of thing, too otherwise it's going to clash with everything else and totally rip people out of any immersion they may have if they happen to run by this place.

    Sort of like saying I just lost all respect for Netherlands, because one small section of Amsterdam has a red light district.

     

    I choose not to support the game because of it.

     

    So running around going on a murdering killing spree is ok but when a game includes some sexuality it suddenly becomes off limits?

    Unbelievable.

    Neither are ok.  And he never said that murdering is fine, you guys seem to inject that in there for him.

    Of course, that leaves you still not addressing if it is somehow ok if you have a wife.  And let me tell you, it has nothing to do with religion, but everything to do with morals and promises.  Any woman is going to dump you super-fast if you don't see the problem with this.

    I have a Wife. She doesn't care at all that this is in a game and neither do I.

    i feel like a lot of people are taking this in a "sex sells" frame of mind. and honestly that may not be the case. it may well be that it's just a flavor section of a city. or there may be quests you can take to shut it down. who knows.

    edit: also: america. where horrific violence is wildly popular, but the presence of sex is "KILL IT WITH FIRE!!!"

    You really want me to answer that? image

    Well on a serious note: teenagers can get turned on by two lumps of dirt on the ground. Of course pixels can make them lose their minds.

    If your wife finds it disrespectfull that there is a red light district in a game and that some kind of promise or your morals are being compromised.....you got bigger problems with her.

    I showed this to my gf, she told me that the first thing we are gona do when playing this game is gona be to find this place and do the quests that might be there, if any.

    A lot of you people take GAMES way too seriously.

    I dont find either killing or sexualisation in games bad but you apparently do. Just to let you know, almost all games out there are about killing. SPECIALLY mmos, in fact there are games solely dedicated to that being developed right now (CU).

    People are sensitive idiots lol. And im sorry for being blunt about it but come on, its like the idiot who demanded a refund from the developers of Bioshock Infinite for "making" him go through a baptism because it offended his sense of faith. Or the idiots who were saying Bioshock Infinite somehow promotes racism because it was a part of the story.

     

    *sigh*
