Scarlet Blade might be the most shameless F2P game yet

I mean that with every possible connotation

I don't know who it is that's responsible for pointing me in the direction of this video (it just appeared, totally anonymously), but I'd like to thank them for helping me realize that I hadn't yet seen the absolute worst that free-to-play games have to offer yet.

Scarlet Blade is a fantasy adventure MMORPG which seems entirely focused on women with extra-sexualized, impractical clothing and further "enhancing" it with ludicrous physics as they pertain to breasts. And breasts are everywhere (which makes sense, as all player characters are female), even on people who appear to be far below the age at which one would even be capable of producing them. And, for $20, you can set those jubblies loose and "unlock" their lingerie -- which seems as though it's really more about making you pay money if you ever want to equip anything useful than any titillation, but that certainly shouldn't stop anyone from selling objectification as a commodity.

It's just gross. Cheers to Niichts over at YouTube for having the courage to play this so that I didn't have to.

Here's the official trailer:

Yep.
