I think you're missing what I'm saying, Twi. I'm not saying "Oh, the game is on a PG-13 website, and it's porn", or something like that (it bothers me, but I'm a grown man, and I can pretend it doesn't exist, like I do with the rest of Aeria). The problem is that these games are being advertised on children websites. I can just ignore it, but children have no idea that they shouldn't be playing the game. And sure, some are honest enough to provide their real age, but a lot more will put in a different age all together and bypass that. And next thing ya know, you've got 7-10 year old playing a game with completely nude women in it.

Superman even said that they can control what websites they appear on, so why is it that I'm getting this ad on the Hub?  
they already explained to you how the ads work. It's not that the advertisement is on the children's website, it's that the advertisement is tailored towards you (maybe because you visited Aeria, or a porn site). At the time that you saw the ad, you were the only person to see that ad (ignoring other aeria games players and whatnot)

This is why I don't bother explaining things to you, because when someone does, you still don't get it.  


You don't bother explaining things cause you're a troll.

Anyways, from what I see, if it's based off of what people look up and visit, it's still possible to see those ads, even if the only thing the person visits are child friendly gaming sites.

Let's take MMO games for example. I just got done with playing Puzzle Pirates and Wizard 101. Oh look, an ad for a game called Scarlet Blade, I wonder what that game is about.

Didn't see the need to post again after my last explanation since the discussion went different ways, but I would like to clarify something else.

Websites possess the ability to filter advertisements that appear on their domain. If someone own the page, they can deny advertisements in general and specific ones as well. There are those that may slip through their filters, but at anytime they can request them to be removed for numerous reasons.

In your latest example not only would possible inappropriateness be reason to request it, but the services and products could be labeled as direct competitors and easily warrant a removal. Google Ads would comply.

Not only are there teams dedicated to help control the content of webpages, users can help as well. Save the link of the advertisement and forward that to their customer support. Just make sure it's the actual link and not what the ad leads you to.

Most commercial websites would be happy to oblige.

Have you cleared your browsing history after going to the Aeria forums or Scarlet Blade website? As that could be why you are still seeing advertisments on other websites.

Now if Scarlet Blade is being advertised on other websites other then Aeria it is those websites who have given the okay for the advertisments to be there. So you should be going after them and not Aeria at that point. Also all advertisments I've seen have had clearly stated that the game is a M rated game by the ESRB meaning it is for people who are 17+. If a child chooses to ignore this and chooses to lie about their age at an age gate you really can't blame Aeria at this point anymore. At some point it falls on parents to properly educate and monitor their childrens access of the internet and what they are doing while they are on the internet.

Also if you even bothered to play the game you would see/know that it isn't complete nudity and just that of the chest area.

I haven't read everything but i will complain about the OP. Sorry but calling Scarlet Blade basically softcore porn is an insult to the game and well, to the other side as well.

Most people that say that, or state that the game is an insult to the feminine gender didn't even try the game or did with their mind made up already. I never saw anything wrong with the game, it has some nudity (its not like sexuality doesn't sell, or do they really need a semi naked lady trying to sell shampoo on a comercial, or even refering to mmorpg's, have you ever wondered why most female characters have enourmous body parts and wear very small underwear?), it has some strong vocabulary which i see no problem with it we are all adults after all and a great gameplay. Its a fun game.

It is normal that they advertise the game way more than any other game because it was just released, it has a lot of potential, and they are trying to make the best of it. As time goes by their focus will shift to Soldier Front 2 when it gets released.

Perhaps you should try to read before posting. Nobody in this thread said that the game was an insult to the feminine gender.

If you re-read and DON't misquote what i said you will understand i was pointing to the OP saying the game was basically softcore porn, my comment about being an insult to the feminine gender was based on feedback from people who have personally complained to me about it.

There is no need to use caps, you simply gave no specification on whom you meant with "or state". In normal situations, I would assume that a response on a forum thread is either directed at the OP and/or at other posters in that thread.

I have read this entire thread. From how I read it, the posters with a critical note (such as myself)
do not have any problem with the content of the game. I am certain that some people have problems with the content, but they did not make a post in this thread.

Re: Scarlet Blade ads!

Scarlet Blade ads everywhere!

I'm getting sick of it. There has been a total of two websites I regularly visit that does not have these ads, and I'm sick of seeing them everywhere. I wouldn't have such a big problem with it, if you didn't have games that have a pathetic number of players for a community.

Seeing as how DWO is the only game I play, I don't know what other games might need help, but the fact that you're spending so much money on a game that is essentially soft core porn is sickening. Especially when I see an ad on the same page that I'm watching a friendship is magic episode.

As it stands, everything I know about the game comes from the website, the ads, and the gameplay video I posted on the thread not long ago (which consisted of person doing a sexually titillating thing, killing some random monster, doing another sexually titillating thing, and then changing to another character, doing the same thing).

To put it in as simple an explanation as possible, there is a line between fanservice and downright pornography, and I feel like Scarlet blade crossed it with the "nude patch".

Maybe there is more to the game. Maybe it's fun. Who knows, maybe it's the best game in the world (though considering it's run by Aeria, the same people who have driven countless other games into a **** hole, including DWO, I highly doubt it). All I'm saying is that it relies too much on crap like this for me to play it. I don't care if other people play it or not, that's your business.

None of that is the issue I had. The issue I had with the game is that something like this was put on children websites, and while it's completely possible to simply be because I've been on Aeria and other MMO websites, it doesn't mean it's okay. As I've put before, Children play MMOs too, and knowing it's completely possible for them to see these ads and play these games is simply unacceptable. Yes, the parents should be paying attention to what they do, but it's not their fault that they're getting ads for this just because they've been playing Runescape, or Pirates 101.

Ever wonder how Technature lives the life of a soldier?How about asking a person that doesn't actually exist questions? Then drop by Technature's blog and drop a letter.
