W-T-F is this..

It's like a bunch of guys thought it was a good idea to base a game on japanese hentai and also make it into an Free to play MMO.
"Well, so many guys play female characters in MMOs, why not just make a game with only female characters and huge boobs.."

In this game though, it's not just the oversized proportions, there's some extremely over the top sexualization and perversions pretty much everywhere.
If it was branded as porn it probably wouldn't be as weird and disturbing..

I think the Scarlet Blade MMO takes place in the already established setting of the ecchi (mainly boob fetish) Queen's Blade animé and Queen's Gate fighting game. It does indeed look rather narrow and monotonous in its presentation, compared to say Second Life's... plenitudes.

Queens Blade/Scarlet Blade is completely unaffiliated with and unrelated to the Queen's Blade series of books/anime/games.

Related to scarlet blade, I saw someone redesign the armors:

I think this looks really good, and would make me actually want to play that game and not complain every second of the time (as happened with Tera, where I -was- constantly complaining.)

Did you actually watch a video of the game? It looks super shallow in gameplay and you have an autopilot which just makes your characters go where they need to go, and while they run along you can zoom in on boobs or ass and such. Anyone with half a brain would get bored to shit fast and find better ways to get their wank on I imagine.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Really? I thought it'd be more like a team-fortress mmo style game. Well, then it's a total waste. 8l
(admittedly most mmo:s are already extremely brainless and boring, since they jst copy the wow-timesink model without any rhyme or reason. If you are free to play, at least make the game fun enough to make people stick with it. BAH.)

Scarlet Blade is basically porn attempting to pretend to be a game. There are much better ways to spend your time and, really, it shouldn't be taken seriously.

The fact that anyone really bothers to play it is troublesome, though. There's obviously nothing that special about it, so people would only play for the porn aspect. And it seems to be working.
It's more of a problem with the fact that sex sells. People will sometimes make dumb purchases for the sake of satisfying their arousal.

It'd be even less of a problem if this was solely in "games" or other media like Scarlet Blade. But you see much subtler versions of this everywhere.
If you ask me, guys usually aren't anywhere near as sexualized. They usually have a much more respectable image, something you could look up to... Then some of the women are basically on the verge of becoming strippers. It's really sad when a game, or really any media that doesn't have the intention of being porn, is like that.

Just look at a game like League of Legends. It's one of the most popular multiplayer PC games out there right now, and every other female character in it has an unlockable appearance that makes them look like a slut. And these unlockables cost real money. And people buy them.
Don't get me wrong, I like playing League of Legends itself, but it's still an issue.

The main problems there are probably that Most Gamers Are Male, not to mention Men Are Generic, Women Are Special and Male Gaze. I'm willing to bet most game developers are male, as well.

On the other hand, I don't have a problem with characters being attractive. As long as it's somewhat equal between genders and it doesn't get too absurd. I feel like I've seen a fair amount of games pull this off, and it's fine in my opinion. I mean, are you going to start telling Hollywood to not use attractive people as the stars in their movies? As long as nobody's turned into a sex object it's all k.

It's all about keeping a healthy balance.


That said, I wonder if there'll ever be a game like Scarlet Blade that only has sexualized men, instead of ladies? Wouldn't that would be interesting, haha.

Hmm, yeah. Looks like Queen's Blade/Scarlet Blade and Queen's Blade are completely unrelated indeed. Well, other than the things which are obviously similar. Meh, I won't blame myself for making the connection.

CrazyMLC> The sexy-men-mmo would be a sight to behold. I'm guessing it would primarily have models like Archer from Fate/Extra CCC (in his speedo outfit) and maybe a boy sidekick.

Not having the time to read this entire thread I will just post my thoughts.

If male leads in video games are allowed to always be attractive, perfect jaw-lined, hugely muscular and overall what is portrayed in the media as a "perfect man" or "hot" like so:



[imghttp://androidspin.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/duke-nukem-3d.png[/img]http://

them i'm sure that it's not just women being sexualized. Men are being sexualized but in a different way. If media has told us that a sexy woman is a scantily clad one with large breasts and waist then that is what game developers are going to put in for their "sexy" characters. The same goes for when game developers want to make "powerful" men, as "powerful" men are considered sexually appealing. It is hard for men to be scantily clad in a sexual manner in the first place: If a game character had a topless male in shorts, covered in sweat and muscles with a godly jawline and perfect hair, then people would just brush it off as being a strong guy because in our day and age that sort of thing is acceptable. However, if you saw a woman, sporting all the tropes of being stereotypically "sexy" with taboo areas (of which she has more of, as less things seem to be considered sexualized in a large manner in men) having small amounts of clothing on them then everyone will instantly go to the thought that this is not acceptable. So why should one gender be allowed to be sexualized and have it seem normal but the other gender get sexualized in a similar manner but have it seem unacceptable and degrading?

Why don't you read the entire thread when you have the time? It answers your questions.
