LOL. I'm getting a kick out of these really overly sexualized ad bars on this site. Like, every other one is some hot Penthouse-esque babe with huge tits saying something like, "save me now, my love" or something. They don't look ANYTHING like any video game character I've ever seen, and the sexualization is so glaringly obvious, that it's just laughable. I've never clicked on any of them, I've never even heard of most of them. But they're kinda funny.

Yeah, seriously.  I think it's THE LAW that if you've created a shitty free MMO, you need to have tits in the banner.

Man, even the ad bar for Ar Tonelico II was like that.

Oh the Google ads are hysterical.  You should see some of the ads they put on in, say, the PETA threads or the ones where we discuss sexuality in media.  I think in the thread where we talked about homosexual relationships in RPGs, there were a bunch of Google ads for gay dating sites.

Yeah, my wife isn't a big fan of the google ads. I look forward to a day when RPGFan can abandon them. .......that day won't be coming any time soon.

I like how the ad has a comma and proper capitalization, but no period.
Or maybe they got lost in the Chasm of Boobage.

I know how to fix this.

Gay Bear Dating.

We need to chant this enough time to get rid of all the dirty pillows.

I love the sideways banner at the top. The vertical boobage is just as, if not more effective than the normal, upright image.

I put it in, but disabled when I decided that preventing potential ad revenue wasn't really a great idea.

okay pretty sure the chick in the new sidebar ad is a crossdresser, livedoll, or... Mick Ronson's corpse, with tits.

HAHAHA - that's awesome, Adol.  Glad the author picked up on the similarity to Idiocracy.  Made me think of the progression from Fuddruckers to Futtbuckers to Buttruckers to... er... Buttf***ers in that movie.
