    nobody wants to tackle post #70 ?

     

    I imagine since it's good enough for the metropolitan museum in NY it's passing this site's policies...but I can't be sure.

     

    I must know before my ban as it's very relevant to the topic. and this topic pops up every time...

    Not sure i consider myself a "normal" person but what i see is an odd looking llama, and a kid having fun.  Thats it.  Which is what i believe the ad was going for.

    The OP wasn't even talking about the kid but it's interesting to see the psychology of some people and what they hang on.  I suppose if i put my mind in the gutter i could come up with something bad, but i can do that with a lot of things.  Here it's just a kid having fun and an animal with a clover coming out of his head (which is normal for these odd things to appear in these type of games)

    I'm firmly in the belief that you guys have way too much time on your hands and over analyze these ads. The SB one did suggest something sexual so I left out of that debate. This one is harmless fun that i think you are now trying to turn bad.

    personal opinion of course

    Back on topic: No the Llama doesn't disturb me, been on the internet far far too long for something like that to have any effect on me.

    Help me Bioware, you're my only hope.

    Is ToR going to be good? Dude it's Bioware making a freaking star wars game, all signs point to awesome. -G4tv MMo report.

    Well i must say that the sheep with a flower on it's head and a weird look on it's face is rather hilarious, as for the girl, it's more or less standard Asian art thing, nothing too unusual really and far from disturbing.

    The game itself must be pure garbage though.

    I think there both aweful wish they would not have adds like that here i realy don't like those asian games(nothing to do with asians themself its just there game designes i don't like).

    I prefer the european/us oriented designed games.

    Scarlet is terible eden eternal is pathetic.

    That Llama woke up and missed St. Patrick's Day. It's pissed off and ready to kill! All beware!

    Hope that bird doesn't crap on her head.

    All my opinions are just that..opinions. If you like my opinions..coolness.If you dont like my opinion....I really dont care.

    Yes, it's funny someone pointed that out.  I barely noticed the Scarlet Blade ad, but the Eden Eternal one is just obnoxious.

    Then again, that's how all Korean MMO's look to me. 

  • RoxtarrRoxtarr Freeland, MI, MIPosts: 1,122Member
    I agree with the OP. The bird and the Llama are buck naked. At least the SB models had clothes. 

    If in 1982 we played with the current mentality, we would have burned down all the pac man games since the red ghost was clearly OP. Instead we just got better at the game.

    Since mid-2011 or so there have been ads and skins here for Eden Eternal and no one said a word before. Ads with almost the same art have returned, but everyone has really run out of things to genuinely complain about so the latest thing is the site skins, as sex is an easy target and currently a hot topic here.

    So this forum is for children?  Are you saying you think it's okay for children to come here and read what some of these people have to say?  

     

    The Asian culture is sick.  They are into some really weird ass shit, no offense if you are Asian.  That little girl on the right has a huge rack, the drawing is clearly giving the idea of an upskirt shot and she's clearly being portrayed as someone between the ages of 6 and 10.  If you don't see a problem with that, then you're just as sick as them.

     

    My respect level for this website is at an all time low.  The disgusting ads that they have been showing for the past several months is sick.  The people who run this site should be ashamed.  The people who moderate this site should be shamed.  I know there have been quite a few people who have left these forums already.  Soon, I'll be leaving too.

     

    Kudos for the people who stick it out through the half soft core child pornography.

    Shooting people in the head is totally healthy practice since it's common in entertainment in your culture. Drawing a child in revealing clothes is sick since it's done by others.

    I think most of us can agree that representatives of other cultures are sick, and the further their culture is from ours the more sick they are.

    As usual, it astounds me where this thread started with its simplicity of point, and where we are now, completely off topic.  Well I guess there are the egos and site reputation to uphold.

    That art isn't trying to sell you anything. It's a conversation between you and the art, nothing more. This advertisement on mmorpg.com is trying to sell you something. There's a specific agenda behind this advertisement. There is not an agenda behind that art work.

    Can you share what you think that agenda is?

    When I saw this ad, much like every EE ad since i started playing a year or so ago, the ad is selling "cute, fun and silly" to me. You see the ad and, per your previous post "You feel dirty." 

    Are you sure the issue is the ad?

    The agenda is to sell a video game. The issue is the ad. I don't want the game or the ridiculous little girl and lama looking at me screaming "play this game."

    I love that lama's face. I click the ad and save the picture of the lama with the bird on his back, then I went into photoshop and did some editing and now I saved it as my desktop background.

    First my nephew doesn't buy games...his parents do. Second...I'm sick if I don't see the sexual nature in a picture of a little girl....yeah I'm pretty sure some professionals who specialize in this type of thing wouldn't agree with you there.

    Offense intended...if this picture turns you on or stirs up those kinds of feelings...you are a fucking pedo and need help. You can call me sick all you like but I'm happy it just looks like a picture of a little girl to me...nothing sexual at all about it. Of course when I see a little naked kid running around on the beach...it's just a naked kid running around on the beach to me....nothing sexual there either. Can you say the same ?

  • bartoni33bartoni33 Southern IllinoisPosts: 1,080Member Uncommon

    I think the issue with the girl is that she is depicted with a pink flotation device around her waste. Usually grown women will not have that. Hence people are thinking "it's a child with a big rack". No flotation device and I think most people would see at least a teen girl or a young woman (maybe the same?). Not into Manga or whatever its called but I think most children are depicted with big eyes and the adults have regular ones, so their is that too.

    OT: Llama is weird and funny. That look he/she has is priceless.

    well its obv not a human boy...

     

    frankly i'd like an answer as well. back in HS art class we spent a few days being shown slides of various renaissance works of art, statue of david, sistine chapel, various depictions of hell etc etc.  all a-ok. but when for a project a drew a naked man being haunted by some ghouls, i was forced to sit in a meeting with my parents and various school officials for drawing nudity and 'disturbing, horror movie schlock'. it was a good drawing too, not the typical monsters teenagers doodle on their notebooks. and wasnt violent or sexual, just a naked cowering man with ghouls learing over him.

     

    who knows, maybe in a few hundred years someone will fins that picture in a garbage dump somewhere and think its a masterpiece lol
