  1. Oh, yeah, I know. I just thought the image of a Gon breaking down and crying to bring a cat familiar back to life was pretty funny. :)
  2. Forget Lyn Destroyers, I want to see a big burly Gon Summoner crying a puddle of tears as he's wishing his familiar back to life. :D
  3. It's not a subscription, it's a bundle of conveniences bought from a cash shop that offers other convenience and cosmetic items. People are used to games that have gone from p2p to hybrid f2p offering an optional subscription that offers you "everything you need" in order to entice current players to keep subscribing. This game launched in the West as f2p and is centered solely around the Hongmoon store for revenue. It's not set up under the assumption that people will "just need to buy Premium".
  4. It's precisely this kind of attitude that creates the need for "feminist SJWs" in the first place.
  5. It's a roundabout way because the NA/EU voice and text options are for version of the game localized for NA/EU, they're not just translations of Korean. If they were to offer official Korean language support for the NA/EU version, they would have to change a lot of the Korean text and voice-overs in order for it to match up with the NA/EU release. For example, all the dialogue from the quest chain "The Scholarly Path" is completely different in Korean, because they changed the questgiver's motives for the NA/EU release, so all of that would have to be changed to match what the dialogue is in
  6. My main, Jinrou. My alts, Genshou, Minyin, Kurobara, Zhulong, Pinyin and Madame Xiang.
  7. There have been studies done specifically on MMOs that show what may be a surprisingly high percentage of female players. That first link is from 2008 and based purely on EQII, and around 40% of the players were female. Granted, some MMOs are going to have more female players than others - for example, GW2 probably has a higher percentage of female players than EVE Online, but long gone are the days when game designers can only think about young male players as the intended audience for an MMORPG (which is a good thing).
  8. I agree with you there, but Korea might not be the poster child for that, since pornography is illegal there. As far as 18+ games go in Korea, something like Scarlet Blade is about as "adult" as you'll find. The sexual imagery in Korean games is more likely art "pushing the envelope" in response to the lack of adult material than an example of a culture being more comfortable with sexuality. Yeah, I don't have a problem with the art style. I think it's absurd that you can create monstrosities like this, though. :D
  9. I was just pointing out that it's not 18+ because you said "I thought this was already an 18+ mmorpg". You'd have to do a lot more than what B&S does to get an 18+ ESRB rating. :D It was originally rated 18+ in Korea, but now it's 15+ - and they lowered the rating by changing the way blood was depicted.
  10. It's rated M for "Mature," meaning "content is generally suitable for ages 17 and up. May contain intense violence, blood and gore, sexual content and/or strong language". There is an AO rating, for "Adults Only," which means "content suitable only for adults ages 18 and up. May include prolonged scenes of intense violence, graphic sexual content and/or gambling with real currency". Regarding Lyn, they don't have breasts because they're simply not part of their anatomy. Male Lyn don't even have nipples. The costumes are essentially magical cosplay.
