Tits

31 Jul

Hey guys, sorry I haven’t posted in a while, but I’m in the UK until mid August and have been really busy.

That said, I must get something off my chest. I fucking hate Evony and their advertising. Maybe you’ve seen them around? The ads look like this:

EvonyOh noes! The sexy blonde white woman has a sword being held to her boobs! Save the tatas! Give me a break…..But the ads get worse:

evony-lover

Even more blatant boobage. The game isn’t advertising it’s features, it’s relying solely on giving lonely young men hard-ons for imaginary women. The sickening thing is that this usually works. Unfortunately the promise of boobs is as luring to this demographic as a dangling cheeseburger is to a starving African.

Eventually the ads dive off the deep end and if it weren’t for the text, you’d never know they were advertising a computer game:

civony-evony

It looks like a naughty magazine cover. Just look at those lips, now imagine them wrapped softly around your….

You know that’s what they want you to be subconsciously thinking. I also want to point out one more reason why this game’s ads suck. Look at this picture:

shittygame1

(Yes, Evony is just Civony with a new name) See that castle up in the top left? Does it look familiar? Well if you’ve played Age of Empires II it should:

aoe2rz1

Yep, the took the graphic from this classic RTS. *facepalm*

Now I love that part of the female anatomy just as much as the next guy, but don’t insult my intelligence by expecting me to want to play a game solely because you show me some skin. And I also object to the way the game objectifies women as helpless sex objects. I think it really says something about the maladjusted people who fall for this type of crass advertising….

    Wow, I am pleasantly surprised that someone else actually noticed this rather than be so controlled by their primal subconscious to buy into this vial shit. Sometimes people can be incredibly ignorant, and easily manipulated like little paper dolls.

    Agreed, and thanks for the comment 🙂

    Haha I just randomly stumbled across this post on the internet and I want to say that I’ve seen these ads too and I could not agree more.

    Agreed, advertising can be frightful. Just don’t stick your primal man instinct while on the internet.

    Yup – noticed those too, thanks for saying what everyone was feeling. They’re so creepy and misleading. I’m guessing the game has nothing to do with naked women (which is relieving) so why advertise it like that.

    Also, thanks for bringing up the Age Of Empires point – I’ve never played Evony and don’t plan to, but AOE is a good, well-made game and they should take copyright action!

    The ads are soooo wierd?no disgusting!

    The game has nothing to do with porn or naked women! There just trying to attract males!

    Its horrible!

    It’s good to know that people are not afraid to speak out about this. Even with all that the world forces at you, it’s good to know people can still tell the truth.

    I agree. This is sickening stuff. I just was online looking up the lyrics for Aretha Franklin’s “Respect,” (how ironic) and I came across another one of those damn ads. All I can think is “Really? This is sick!” It’s very sad that the only way that they lure people is through ungly women with fake breasts. So ridiculous.

    actually i am a male i play the game not cause the adds though i played it cause my friend showed it to me and once more i dont say its right that they exploit women but the simple fact is sexy sells and considering the fact that our world is coming to a virtual idiocrocy a reverse darwinism if you will the only way they can get people to play is through luring them in with “sex” meaning thats they’re only add campaign and personally i think its a disgusting act of male primacy is truly ignorant and they need to get a better add campaign so i have said what i need to say and if there are any arguments to contradict mine or any corrections someone would like make please let me know my email is: danielbakerpoo2009@otmail.com

    and further more i have to say i strongly disagry i dont think i said that enough but they simple fact is that we are helpless to stop the we can try but they do not care what we think so they are going to keep doing this i hope this goes without saying but i hate how the male perspective plays such a strong roll in todays life and it angers me

    I like the game so well that when it shows the beautiful ladies, I have to quickly click in order to not get hypnotized by the tatas. I don’t think this is necessary in order to have a good game, and this game is good.

    I recently noticed all those ads as well. Pretty gross. I think it just goes to show that capitalistic sex-driven marketing is actually offensive to everyone. It may piss me off as a feminist, but I know that it also insults guys by telling them that they are all empty-headed horn-dogs who will click anything that features semi-naked women.

    i dont really care i love the adds although i dont play this thing,i just save the images cuz of the girls hahahaha,but i dont really know why are you so offended really pals chill out

  14. anonymous January 5, 2010 at 11:05 pm #

    who cares. i think it doesnt matter, its an excellent way to attract people. ilike the tatas anyway.

    Hey folks i seen these, and ill be honest i was curious simply because of the images, very attractive images to me personally first but first thing i thought was….i wonder what this game is actually about. I can see why people are offended by woman being portraied as helpless, sex objects. However there are far worse things on the web and in real life than this. The sex business (and by that i mean, toys clothing magazines etc.) is a lucrative business, and these images if anything are good marketing….if horrendously miss leading. They draw the attention of viewers, to find out what evony is, be it by sex ladies attracting men, offending women.

    However saying all this, who does it hurt? If women (or men for that matter) feel like it encourages men to objectify them women, then they should reconsider. I know i personally look at women quite alot, but its the way men are wired. A beautiful body and face doesn’t detract from a beautiful person, its a bonus, because no one is attracted to a complete stranger because they are ugly. Everyone is attracted by looks. Thinking of the tired (yet still valid) saying, dont judge a book by its cover. ive done it in a round about way, but the main thing i want to get across here is, ugly or beautful, go in with the same mind set.

    I just realised ive probably just said alot of crap….lool…..but there you go, theres my brain dump on the situation.

    I just wanted to say thank you for pointing out the objectification issue. I wrote a paper on that a few years back. I know a lot of people say it’s not REALLY hurting any one, but I for one know I hate being looked at like a piece of steak to be eaten up. So thanks for taking a stand. 🙂

    I totally agree it’s discusting!!! My sister was on the computer looking up feminist rights fir her reasearch report for her junior year ap English class and on all of the sights one of these adds would pop up. It is extremly degrading and okay I understand if you are trying.to sell the game but really on a femine rights website!!! That is extremly degrading. I’m now a siphmore in college and as I have grown up all of this advertisement has been getting worse and more degrading to women. As averse as I am to being treated weak I think it is disgusting that people actually look at this stuff! I would much rather be treated weak than be degraded!!
