|I'm fairly sure this particular character isn't in the game (yes, I've checked).|
|Oh, brave liberators, the Brothels are that way.|
|This reminds me of the old pin-ups you used to see in WWII movies.|
|Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha...those stupid computer nerds! They are over there, playing games, while we are here, flirting in a bi-sexual manner! Ha, ha, yes, you are right Grunhilda, they are foolish nerds indeed. Look! Our knees are almost touching!|
|We're too sexy for your tank, too sexy for your tank, too sexy for your artillery too!|
|I'm a model..you know what I mean...I show my cleavage on the WoT site.|
I'm not adverse to a pictures of pretty girls and I actually think the World of Tanks photos are all right (except for the one where they are standing in front of the tanks.....they're blocking my view of the tanks dammit!). They are reminiscent of the old pin up girls that were in vogue during WWII. Lets face it, most of the people playing games will be male, and while I might not be an advertising executive I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that sex does sell.
On some subconscious level this must work because they continue to use it again, and again, in all types of marketing....or does it? All I know is that I'm playing World of Tanks, and had planned on doing so even before these photos were released on the web-site, but I'm never playing Caesary- despite the half-naked raven-haired, cartoon babe on that ad. I readily admit that I am outside the demographic that most advertisers are aiming at, however, so maybe it's all lost on me. Maybe, it is indeed, too sexy for ancient gamers like myself.
