This is the game that Nin has been waiting for all his life. And he still won't be able to get laid.

My only hope is that Cyberlore gets some in-house funding from this release so they can proceed with work on Majesty 2.

Majesty was a fun (if overlooked) god-sim game.

Yes, Majesty was awesome, to bad developers have to make shite-pop-games to make money so that then they can do what they are best at.

No, you've probably seen a real live naked girl at least once in your life.

And THAT means that you should not buy this game.

I'm guessing you have to be of age to buy this game. But if you're of age, why would you want to drool over polygonal naked bum's and breasts if you can drool over the real thing? I have no clue what demographic they are targetting. If I want to play a game, I play a game. If I want to look at porn, I look at porn.
I'm not even really here.

It's not about looking at naked girls or watching "porn." There is plenty of that on the net.

This has a cool magazine publishing simulation combined with relationship sim play. None of the boring eating, sleeping, peeing, bathing elements of the sims, and set in Hef's lifestyle.

I don't think a lot of people understand this game; it's not *about* boobs, but it has them in the game. It's not *about* sex, but it has it in the game. It's about managing a high end lifestyle, producing a magazine and throwing parties.

You people are way out of line, this is just an economy sim with The Sims tie-ins. Naked polygons are just thrown in to give it Playboy style, but the game would work fine if the premise was entirely different.

Oh wait I'm saying exactly what D-Dogg just said.

Listen to him.

Well, hell, I hope I get to live like Hef when I'm old enough to be someone's granddad. What are you complaining about?
