    So it looks like a new evony clone has arrived on the scene.

    Taking bets on how long until boobage becomes its main advertised feature.

    OMG PRECEDENCE
    I feel so, so, so, very ashamed to be a gamer...
    Then again, I'm not a PR guy, so at least my conscience is clear.

    hahaha. I saw that this morning. However there was a moment of panic when I thought there was something else to unlock on PvZ.

    That's friggin' hilarious. One question though: Does anyone outside Qt3 understand the context?

    Considering I've seen the Civony/Evony ads all over the place including in places where I wouldn't have expected gaming related ads, then quite possibly yes.m

    It's not like Evony can get all uppity about infringement.

    I think the new PvZ ads are especially brilliant *because* those insidious Evony ads are so pervasive.

    I think at this point anyone who's used the internet in the last month will get it. :P

    Has there been a winner yet in their queen contest? I'd definitely nominate this one for "most likely to be an Evony ad."

    Precisely.

    She's hot, scantily clad, armed, and copyright infringing.

    Looks like the perfect Evony ad to me!

    Forget being Evony's queen, I'm going to build a castle and propose.

    Honestly, it always fascinated me on a social/psychological level, how a woman who looks as good as such can stoop so low in a pathetic game's even more pathetic social environment rather of going and getting a good husband (or wife, welcome to the new millennium) and playing Gal Civ instead or whatever.
    Talk about your lack of dignity and self respect. Either that, or an attention seeking shallow personality that could compete with a river pebble.

    Well, I am sure there are plenty of women with "no dignity or self respect" that feel empowered that they can garner so much attention with their looks.

    What I am saying is that some girls like to have power over men, and if you can get guys all over you by wearing a bikini and taking a picture... more power to ya!

    Yeah, because using your looks... how low can you get?

    So has anyone seen the latest crop of these? I'd post it here, but it's actually NSFW, so I'll just link to it: http://content.yieldmanager.edgesuit...634502c05c.jpg

    (but seriously, it's very racy, so be forewarned and don't click on that link if you're at work or around kids or prudish family members or whatever.)

    Because she enjoys the attention? Has low self esteem? Wants the prize and doesn't care who looks?

    There's plenty of reasons to do it, really, though I think hers is the most (welcomely) exposed of all the entries.

    Also, if you haven't written to PopCap thanking them for the awesome ads, do it, damn it. I know I did!

    This thread has now resulted in IMVU shockwave ads saying "meet new people", featuring two poorly rendered girls making out. That's okay, except it's wreaking havoc on my system with its piss-poor optimization. Time to redownload adblock and get specific.

    Extarbags-Holy shit, that can't be real. I wouldn't call it NSFW, LSFW certainly, but...holy shit.

    Oh, it's real. I just saw it myself, clicked on it, and it did indeed go to their site.

    You response is just about as sexist as the ads for civony. Why does a woman need to "going and getting a good husband"?
