Evony girls on film, porn style

The "world's best web game" has a new advertisement up that takes a page from the hard-core video industry.

Oh Evony, you're such a tease, what with brazenly ripping off Civilization luminary Sid Meier, then wrapping his respected oeuvre in your tinsel-tawdry images of fake or stripping or occasionally flat-out stolen females. I'd ask "Have you no shame?" but even that's a rhetorical question wrapped in a riddle inside an utter redundancy.

Add porn stars--or images from the disc-sleeves that also appear on the covers of low-budget pornography--to the list of Evony's attention-grabbing stunts. The sleuths at Negative Gamer ran a reverse image search on the newest Evony ad--a picture of two girls in bikinis pouting and pawing at each other--and came up with an Amazon listing for Girls Playing with Girls 102. Needless to say, the latter's not someone's innocuous home video of children playing tag or hide-and-seek in the backyard.

No, this particular slice of commercial salaciousness--released in 2007--was directed by the pricelessly named Juicy Plum, and stars "gorgeous cuties" Emily, Jessica, Danielle, Brenda, Krissy, and Desiree.

To be fair, the girls on the video's cover and duplicated in the Evony ad aren't in the video, it seems, but rather the subject of this iStock photo, "two hot girls in the tropics."

"Free to play forever," "World's best web game," "Instant access, no installation," it all sounds so wonderful on your website, Evony.

So why can't you sell your game on its own merits, instead of resorting to titillating in such disturbing, gratuitous, completely game-unrelated ways?

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
