Originally posted by Eir_S I don't care, to be honest. I gave it as fair a shake as I do most F2P's and it plays better than quite a few of them, so whatever, if it's porn to you and you don't like porn (!), don't play it, but it's not the worst game out there. In fact, I like the fact that one of the classes uses a whip as a weapon, I wish I saw that more often.
Besides the fact that I did like the odd class choices.. the game was one of the WORST F2P MMOs and yes OP it is porn. Every quest has some GREAT innuendo in it and you actually reveal soft porn anime pics as you level... The abilites are the worst I have seen in ANY MMO... They had no purpose other than to press buttons.
Its neither. Just a sad excuse to grab a quick buck. People forget though that throughout history there has always been some form of racy content in one form or another. Video games are fair game since they are a popular form of modern entertainment.
I used to hate dying in EQ not just because of the death experience but because my Wood Elf female was wearing a 1 piece skin tight suit. I recall some cheesy player comments that struck me as ridiculous at the time. And being a young female gamer the lack of clothing or the unrealistic armor irritated me.
Now its just a norm in most games and with Scarlet Blade, just a tacky and sad cry for money and attention.

If you ARE used to it by now, then we really need to have a talk.
The time when people get used to bad things, is not a good time.
It is NOT a positive trait to get used to evil, immorality, negativity, etc. Whatever you will to call it, harmful things like exploitation or offensive natures is not something one should ever get used to.
One of my favorite quotes from Law & Order: SVU, refers to a detective who says, "I just can't get used to this kind of thing." with the Captain replying, "If you ever do, you shouldn't be doing it anymore."
It's one thing to have sexualize art or exaggerated anatomy. People like Frank Frazetta, for example is considered as a legendary artist who did not exploit women or the overmasculine men he also drew. nor the stereotypical white-knight useless-female style.
It is another thing to exploit women for profit. Real Life Pimps, for example. Those who exploit the anatomy of women for profit are closer to the latter than they are to the former. People do not have a problem with huge breasts and wide hips. They have a problem with the focus being on women's bodies, not character development, gameplay elements, strong female characters, etc.
People don't have a problem with art style. They have a problem with exploitation of what is obviously for money not artistic expression.

You must have a really really small worldview for this to be your answer.
Perhaps less time on reddit, and more time in the books?
Governments are usually the ones who dictate the age of adulthood, driving age, age of consent, etc.
It varies not only by nation, but also by State. Meaning each law is most likely dictated by the region and culture in that specific area, its history, and its present nation.
Originally posted by drtack1 yes..........the scarlet blade ads are pretty dumb. Very dimeaning to women if you ask me. Waht a cheep way to advertise a video game. I guess they need to do what they need to do since the gameplay and publisher are both rumble.
seems to me that the feminists have convinced you that naked women is demeaning.

Ah, this was bumped just in time for Scarlet Blade's new content release!
There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein"Graphics are often supplied by Engines that (some) MMORPG's are built in" - Spuffyre

Originally posted by Warjin Man oh man I can see now why women get offended, we as a people use them as objects to sell things,
I have to agree advertisers do use sex to sell things to men however when it comes to products made for women, such as "Romance Novels" there's usually a buff, shirtless man on the cover. As a man I am not offended , even though the average man looks nothing like that.
Sex is used to sell things but it cuts both ways. There isn't some anti-woman conspiracy.

yup,,a beautiful woman can make a living , by just showing her goodies for Money
the market is there, because theres a bigger demand, than supply
solition: remove Money, or make beautiful women go naked
sometimes, i feel envy to those movie heroes as well, sporting their six packs
but not enough to get in shape myself.
Couldn't post this on the actual review:
"I honestly thought that I would enjoy the game. Even my libido wasn't enough to keep me playing. Generic quests, meh storyline, and nothing remotely interesting other than the obvious. Also, I'm not a fan of dark fantasy, so certain quests did piss me off and that's when I stopped playing. I wouldn't give the game such a low rating, but it's another copy/paste MMO.
One positive thing I could say about it is this: Scarlet Blade is the first MMORPG that I played where Medics actually do some decent damage (plus they are totally hot). That is all."
Actually, I really don't understand modern feminists. They QQ about things that aren't such a big deal to begin with (boob plate armour, anyone?). They go around telling women that they have the power to do as they please, but when a woman wears sexualized clothes she is seen as being subservient to men.
Last time I checked, women were the ones who chose their careers and what they could wear.
Why are men constantly bashed for our attraction to aesthetics? Am I to blame for being born with a strong sex drive? It's not our fault that we value beauty! GET.OVER.IT.
EDIT: I'm not saying that it's ok for women to be exploited. I'm talking about choices here. Many of these women made the choice to dress that way and follow some stupid backwards culture that uses them for its own agenda. What I don't appreciate is feminism that attacks men (I never get a say in anything because i'm a male). I understand that I may be one of the minority, but I hate being put in a box and being called out as vile or something, just because I have a penis.
there are conspiracies against everything, also against women
in some countries, a woman was considered a whore , if she showed her profile to strangers
does that Count , as a conspiracy?
I fell like here is a anti heterosexual conversation, guys you don't like girls?
Sorry guys but I worked in school and kids already know all the nasty things. We live in a time of selfish parents and free access to different information like porn so we can't stop this.
What about me I think women is the most beautiful creature so I don't find anything wrong with game. I don't play this game and will never play just saying...
You don't know what porn is. I'd pass you a link to one of my Skyrim porn vids but it get me banned.
Interesting thing is the links have never been put anywhere and have 20,000+ views a month but my youtube get maybe 5 a month.
