    LOL...Only traditional MMO to come out in years and if the scantly clad women bother you defiantly never paid attention to books, games or any other genre of heroic theme stories. The game is sure better than NWN, STO, MH or anything else coming out right now. It is by definition the only thing close to a MMO that has been released. Just to bad we all live in the world of grey!

    This write-up doesn't really reach the bar to be called a "review," at least not on a semi-professional gaming site.  It reads, both stylistically and content-wise more like a one-sided op-ed piece against some current issue affair like you might see in your local paper.

     

    If a vegetarian reviewed a new burger restaurant and called the meat "disgusting" how much credibility would that review have?   Basically as much as this one, where someone with puritanical sexual morals reviews a game specifically targeted at people other than him/her.

     

    Of course, no doubt the reviewer has far less objection to graphic violence, as per the usual hypocritical moral approach to *Adult* rated games.  Have an M rated game where cold-blooded murder is glorified and constant, that's A-OK.   Show some cleavage in a humorous, tongue-in-cheek way and "aw lordie the sky's a fallin' down save us all."

    Yeah, it doesn't make sense. This review doesn't hold much weight because how long have they had the ads up? a month or more? The staff had no objection to do that. But now that they take them down and switch to the next game with sex appeal ads they can slam the game with a high score of 4.7

    I'm going to go ahead and tell you why you're wrong.  The one reviewing this game had nothing to do with the advertisement nor did the rest of the staff.  It was a stuffy man in a suit somewhere who is now enjoying an extra mean cigar because of his choice to sell MMO sex to us.  This has been stated before.

    And to the rest of this argument that has seemed to follow in the responses.....Objectivity?  You're really pulling that one out in this instance.  We're talking about flaunting tits about in a very obvious and purposeful manner and you're expecting someone to be objective about its invasion into every crevice of the game.  If one were to be objective about that subject when related to this game one could only say " There are an amazing amount of tits in this game and people often enjoy tits.  However some don't enjoy tits at all times and in all forms of entertainment.  This isn't to say that one couldn't stomach seeing a tit every now and then in all forms of entertainment, but honestly there are only so many tits one can see before a tit becomes like any other lump of matter. This isn't insulting tits, its insulting the frequency and omission of other content in favor of more tits."

    It is good to be objective in all matters however it's best to use it in the serious tone that some of you heathens have been using it when referring to matters of life and death, not tits and ass. 

    that's ridiculous, they're associated with the website and so they're associated with what's on the site.

    if they're so offended and find it degrading and shameful then why would they be associated with such ads and a website with those ads?

    there's certain things that offend me or i find extremely annoying or whatever, such as animal freaks who are obsessed with animals.. you won't find me anywhere near anything that has to do with that..

    if i see someone dressing up an animal like a human i'm outty 5 thousand, i wouldn't be writing for and associated with a website that sold clothing for animals.

    "In terms of Scarlet Blade’s gameplay it’s just another theme park. It seems the Asian MMO market churns out MMOs these days not taking the time to create something which warrants attention and support."

     

    Stop lumping Korean, and Chinese into the "Asian"  catagory.  It's like saying western when referencing The U.S. and Mexico. 

     

    Two completely different cultures with different ideas on gaming. Why not just say Korean?

     MMORPG get payd to have adds on their page..They do not have to like the content or agree with that game is in anyway..

    It's a bad game and even bad games get's adverticing. Scarlet Blades main selling point is these lightly dressed cartoon babes, so they have to show them in their adds--

    On the other hand If I where the creators of SB I would pull these adds of the site , since the review score doesn't bode well for them..

    FTP is a plague among games, and this is what we got and will continue to get more of in the future..

    Scarlet Blade is a borderline scam of a game just like many others of those Asian FTP games are..:)

    Although Asian MMOs are generally crap, depiction of superflexed females in appealing attire is far more healthy and acceptable than explicit homosexual propaganda the likes of which was introduced by BioWare in their far more expensive SWTOR. Reviewer must have missed that one, otherwise he'd feel far more degraded and ashamed. Overall, amusing how behavioral standards have shifted in Corporate America these past decades. Guess the next evolutionary step will be sheep-worshiping.

    This was possibly the worst review I've ever read on this site.  So much whining and crying.  We get it, you didn't like the game. Its funny how people are so offended by our natural birthday suit.  But, things like murder, war, rape etc are just day to day normal things lol.  Just something for those of you who are "offended".  In countries (espeically the middle earth like Iran and Iraq and so on) that are the most conservative and easily offended by showing anything of the female body tend to have the most sexual assaults and rapes etc.  Now, you go to one of the more sexually liberal countries in Europe (Denmark. Poland, Germany etc) and the cases of rape, sexual assault and any sexual related crimes are a small fraction of those with conservative views.  I'm not defending the game.  It looks shit to me tbh.  But, I just don't understand why people get so offended by some boobs lol.

     

     

     

    P.S.  I find it really funny that SB was on this sites background for over a month before this review.  Guess they got mad when SB decided to advertise elsewhere.

     They are a website that discusses and reviews everything that is MMORPG related, unfortunatly for MMORPG.com Scarlet Blade also falls under this cathegory...Woudn't it be totally bizarre if they gave Scarlet Blade a glowing review instead..

    It's not that this review is positive towards the game ;)

    Shame on you MMORPG.com staff

     

    So when they give a high score to an advertiser they are taking bribes, but when they give a low score they were not bribed enough? lol

    I'll agree that the review was poorly written and lacking in substance in my opinion.   But the bribe talk really gets old.

    i have no problem with a bad review i have a problem with the "shameful/degrading" moral high ground stuff that was included with the review.

    if a person didn't like the game, fair enough.. give it a bad review but no need to bring that stuff into it.

    it stinks of some kind of religious agenda or some agenda... i don't need to be told i'm horrible or i should feel shameful or i'm degrading females for liking the female body or fantasizing.

    if i look at the hotties in maxim and fantasize about them i'm not degrading them it's fantasy, if i met one of them in real life i'd be a complete gentleman and nice to them.

    anyway, i'm now bored of this moral/religious casting of stones.

     What's wrong the styles of the game are very similar to each other. There's nothing wrong with it in any way. Eastern MMO's are also completely different than Western. Not to mention I don't believe I've ever seen a MMO made in Mexico.

     Take a chill pill..Doesn't this game contain ...killings and murder aswell ? :)

    It's a bad game..Simple as that. It's a real horrible game that only has one mission and that is to take your money quickly so they can create a new horrible game..

    Ohh..I have nothing against nudity and even soft porn or erotica in games at all,,I loved the first Witcher and Witcher 2 , but I sadly missed the pinup pictures from the first game .I also liked Age of Conan..

    I also laughed at Mortal Online that allowed completly nude characthers to run around..

    so.. if that's it's main feature and attraction and he has a problem with that type of content what's he even doing reviewing the game? doesn't seem very fair to the game as he would have his mind made up in not liking that content.

    the whole thing feels like agenda to me which i don't like.. looking down or casting stones at people who would be interested such a thing, etc.

    i'm more offended by that than hotty mchottersons in revealing clothing, i might even go try the game now out of rebellion of such moral and religious nonsense.

    Why was this review even written ? this topic has been done to death on this site...I mean there isn't even a stain where the horses corpse used to be it's so over done.

    Was it just picked at random out of the tabloid topics bin or something ?

  • eccotoneccoton Pinehurst, NCPosts: 1,328Member

    You have got to be kidding me! This 20 year old reviewer is going to school me on what is disgusting and what I would be ashamed of playing? For context I am 53 years old and yes I tried Scarlet Blade and had no problem with people knowing I played it and even showed some of my friend, not a one was disgusted. The response by all including me was a nice laugh. Some people take things to seriously and George Dimmock you need to grow up a bit and not try so hard at being an adult.

    "Not only is this downright degrading but it’s also embarrassing to play. I mean, would you want someone to catch you playing this game?"

    "Yet even these are brought down by its unashamedly pornographic approach."

    "Scarlet Blade is a title you’ll feel ashamed to play, and is truly one of the worst MMOs of this year."

    Just a few of his wonderful quotes. Scarlet Blade is so far from porn it is not funny. I saw nothing in the game I would describe as porn. I disagree with many reviews at mmorpg.com but this has to be the worst review I have ever read here. People like George need to get a grip. Scarlet Blade is just a game. A bit tacky, a bit sophomoric,  a bit silly, and it has big tits! That's about it. Scarlet Blade is not to deep but I only played about 4 hours so I can not really comment about later in the game, it might get better. Oh god save me from this pile of porn. Lock up your daughters! Neuter your pets! For god sakes get your ass to confession!

     I stopped playing Scarlet Blade because it was boring not because I was ashamed. For some reason the character kept reminding my of Nicki Minaj.

    I'm going to go ahead and tell you why you're wrong.  The one reviewing this game had nothing to do with the advertisement nor did the rest of the staff.  It was a stuffy man in a suit somewhere who is now enjoying an extra mean cigar because of his choice to sell MMO sex to us.  This has been stated before.

    And to the rest of this argument that has seemed to follow in the responses.....Objectivity?  You're really pulling that one out in this instance.  We're talking about flaunting tits about in a very obvious and purposeful manner and you're expecting someone to be objective about its invasion into every crevice of the game.  If one were to be objective about that subject when related to this game one could only say " There are an amazing amount of tits in this game and people often enjoy tits.  However some don't enjoy tits at all times and in all forms of entertainment.  This isn't to say that one couldn't stomach seeing a tit every now and then in all forms of entertainment, but honestly there are only so many tits one can see before a tit becomes like any other lump of matter. This isn't insulting tits, its insulting the frequency and omission of other content in favor of more tits."

    It is good to be objective in all matters however it's best to use it in the serious tone that some of you heathens have been using it when referring to matters of life and death, not tits and ass. 

    that's ridiculous, they're associated with the website and so they're associated with what's on the site.

    if they're so offended and find it degrading and shameful then why would they be associated with such ads and a website with those ads?

    there's certain things that offend me or i find extremely annoying or whatever, such as animal freaks who are obsessed with animals.. you won't find me anywhere near anything that has to do with that..

    if i see someone dressing up an animal like a human i'm outty 5 thousand, i wouldn't be writing for and associated with a website that sold clothing for animals.

     They are a website that discusses and reviews everything that is MMORPG related, unfortunatly for MMORPG.com Scarlet Blade also falls under this cathegory...Woudn't it be totally bizarre if they gave Scarlet Blade a glowing review instead..

    It's not that this review is positive towards the game ;)

     

    i have no problem with a bad review i have a problem with the "shameful/degrading" moral high ground stuff that was included with the review.

    if a person didn't like the game, fair enough.. give it a bad review but no need to bring that stuff into it.

     What should he bring into it then..It's Scarlet Blades MAIN selling feature, It's their main focus in all the ADDS for it..My guess it's completly impossible to ignore while playing it aswell ;)

     

    so.. if that's it's main feature and attraction and he has a problem with that type of content what's he even doing reviewing the game? doesn't seem very fair to the game as he would have his mind made up in not liking that content.

    the whole thing feels like agenda to me which i don't like.. looking down at people who would be interesting in such a thing, etc.

    i'm more offended by that than hotty mchottersons in revealing clothing, i might even go try the game now out of rebellion.

    This is straight from the beginning of the review..Did you not read that. ? If you are a reporter or working for a game site you can't choose what you want to review, You get a game mailed for you or handed to you to review regardless of preferences or likes ..

    Not really a shock....anyone playing this game needs to leave their basement and live in the real world.

    Only so far that this goes from "HAHA their half naked." to "Okay this is creepy."

    Its disgusting and degrading to half our species...seriously. We want MMOs to be treated with respect as a mature and innovated genre...not smut.



     

    MMORPG Gamers/Developers need a reality check!

    Not at all suspicious that mmorpg.com wait until the paid adverts stop before doing an overwhelmingly negative review......... Not suspicious at all

    So this gets a second place on the site with "fair review" added to it? SERIOUSLY?!?
