Wow. Talk about a series that has strayed so far from the great tactical shooter that is Ghost Recon 1.

What a disgrace. Fuck you UBI.

I was about to say, "how the hell can a game like Ghost Recon be marketed to oversexed teenagers?"

I was horribly surprised.

You're surprised? This is Ubisoft we're talking bout, they may not be as bad as EA or Activision but they sure as hell are trying their damndest to take that spot.

*Sigh*

Wishing no offence to the woman in the ad but well.... jesus. This is not how you sell a game and I know I've talked a lot about gaming's attitude towards women over the last few months but still they keep finding new lows to sink to.

Thank you game industry, for thinking that I am a lonely undersexed teenage boy.

I'm sorry, but that chick's fucking ugly and the game looks like shit.

Ubisoft needs to get their heads together.

I'm really depressed I pre-ordered this now.

You didn't like dat ass ?

I'm guessing that the next member who is "going to bring the lyrical heat" is her husband, Ice-T? Maybe it's just some sort of husband-wife tie in. As we all know, Ice Loves Coco.

Only when it's G-ing TFO.

"She" looks like a plastic Vegas trannie and is fucking obnoxious to boot.

Somewhere lost in all of this is how disappointed I am in how terrible the game looks.

EDIT: Only now just realized you were probably referencing my avatar :<

To be honest, i'd totally hit that. Not the best looking girl, but she's still doable dammit.

Also: <3 Fawxy

If that isn't a stealth parody I can only assume Ubi's marketing people looked at the worst of EA's advertising and thought "yeah, we can sink even lower."

When people refer to a rifle as a gun it makes me think they're not any type of expert :P

Though guns are also rifled so I have a conundrum

you can still cancel it right?

She has a nice bod but too much botox ruins the face.

Thats immature.

I usually believe that people have a tendency of overreacting when it comes to women in gaming, it seems that an inch of skin get's a premature chorus of cries of sexism...but this?...I just...wow. I honestly felt like my intelligence was being insulted while watching that video.

I was gonna quote him and say the same thing . Great minds think alike .

OT: DAT ASS...err i mean ...BOOBIES .... Errr ... Yeah damn teens and this sex drive !

OTT: i hope the Collectors Edition includes the girl .

What a disgrace. Fuck you UBI.

I wouldnt tie one shitty marketing ad to the whole game...

The game was pretty good from what i have played.

But this.... this is just silly.

The "believe in ghosts" ads were alright, what the hell happened? :P

Unless its a joke or something.

I wanted this game at one point, but after seeing that..... what the fuck happened to that franchise?

Possibly it'll be 'good for what it is'. I would have no idea, as I have zero interest.

As a tactical shooter fan of games like Ghost Recon 1, Raven Shield and earlier R6 games, Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis and SWAT 4, it's just continuing UBI's abomination of the Ghost Recon name.

Oh man! I thought Ghost Recon was just some boring fuddy-duddy realism shooter. This is gaming, not real life! Gosh! Who needs that rubbish these days?

Now that I've seen this advert my misconceptions have been cleared up. I can't wait to shoot guns (YEAH GUNS!) with lovely scantily clad ladies (YEAH BOOBIES!)!

Fuck yeah.

Wow. I cant say im offended but i was very distracted from the gameplay. Probably not what you want viewers to do Ubisoft

Oversexed? ... or Under?

Ehh...a correction.

They are marketing to oversexed teenagers in the nineties. This woman has that utterly fake look that was somehow in back then.

Men like fantasy. Men like looking at chicks that are not real while they masterbate. Every guy on here likes looking at sexy chicks if he is straight. I see no problem with this. Saying it's a disgrace makes you a lier.

No woman is going into combat wearing that... there'd be no skin left after crawling through undergrowth and across gravel

If you think that woman is sexy...

Excellent. Less competition for me.

Now imagine if the official new Hobbit trailer was Megan Fox talking about how funny the movie is and how bad-ass the dwarves are, while striking this pose:

Is that what you want a trailer for The Hobbit to look like? No problems with that?

The Hobbit having a girl like Megan Fox talk about it won't ruin the movie because she is not in it. As long as they don't put things in the Hobbit that were not in the books, whats the problem? Yeah it doesn't add anything to it, but in order to disgrace something you have to screw with the original material. Having some talentless bimbo talk about how she loves it doesn't make me think less of The Lord of The Rings. People have been using sex to sell stuff since the beginning of time. A game about blowing the utter shit out of other people was never classy to begin with.

Go back 15 years and try to use a word like "classy" to describe an elf and a wizard fighting goblins inside a dwarf fortress, or Batman fighting the Joker. To quote Roger Ebert, "it's not what a movie (game) is about, it's how it's about it."

The disgrace isn't that there's a bimbo talking about this product. Bimbos will do as bimbos are wont to do. The disgrace is that Ubisoft thinks that they want this bimbo representing their product.

Megan Fox was a poor comparison, by the way. She's actually in the industry and so might actually have some understanding of films (that she's not in, anyway), and be capable of appreciating good acting. This? It's a small step up from advertising the game with actual steamy hardcore mano a womano porn. Because... why not? Guys like that, too.

I feel profoundly awkward on behalf of everyone involved.

Who is she anyway?

You know I could flip this on you right now. So if a girl has big tits and she is showing them, then she is a bimbo? So anytime a hot women sells something then it must be a company being a smut peddler. I see a women talking about a new game about blowing shit up who also has big boobs. If she was ugly with no chest at all, then it would be okay?

I think she is ugly, so obviously no, it would not be okay, because even with my opinion of her looks being what it is, I still find this entire affair embarrassing. It's a disgrace because Ubisoft doesn't trust their game to be good enough to sell itself. They have to resort to getting some random chick with huge boobs to do their selling for them. The fact that they, like you, think she is at least moderately attractive makes this even worse, because obviously that went into their transparent marketing "strategy," such as it is.

But let's say she was ugly in a way that no one at all could find attractive, 500 pounds, horrible scars, a deep manly voice, the works. Then... I have to wonder what the fuck Ubisoft was thinking when they hired her. It's still pathetic that they won't let the game speak for itself, but other than that, I'm mostly confused rather than outraged.

Since this is just going to be a back in forth debate about whether we should use sex to sell certain things, I will bow out right now. By the way, they are selling a hamburger on t.v. with a big breasted chick. What does hamburgers and boobs have in common, nothing. But it got my attention because I am talking about it right now.

Holy shit I thought the same thing, I thought it was a post op when I first saw it.

Also its really funny, you can tell shes all plastic, the skin on her arms shook more than her breasts did while she was firing the AK-47

But seriously, this ad is craaap, I cancelled my preorder

I suppose that's a valid point. Why am I giving Ubisoft an especially hard time, when, however bad this might be in my view, there are so many out there who are doing the same thing?

Cliche as it sounds, this might have something to do with the whole "are games art?" debate. If I want them to be seen as art, and I kinda sorta do, it would really help if the people making them stopped pandering to 15 year old boys.

I mean, if Michael Bay can muster up enough integrity to let Transformers 3 commercials speak for themselves, I think game makers should at least be able to match that. I don't think that's asking for too much.
