First, I need to give some context here.

Y'all heard of EVONY? A rather mundane resource-management game? The one that had the hilariously sexist cheesecake ads ("Come play with me, my lord") that bore no actual relation to the gameplay?

Altiel is an interesting online CCG that I never really got into, but was pretty fun.

Altiel's current ad campaign is of a smirking, fully clothed female fencer, and the copy "She's actually in this game, my lord."

And suddenly I am interested in Altiel again. >:3

PS: She's quite a useful offensive unit in game, too.

Hahahaha. That's cool. Evony was blanketing several sites I frequent, and I read some articles about the crazy lack of connection between the "Play discreetly!" and the actual game. Haven't heard of Altiel, but I thoroughly approve of the ad you describe :)

Altiel is actually a decent game, too - a hybrid between an abstract wargame and a collectible card game. Free, with the option to buy booster packs (and you also win them for participating in duels).

It was fun, but not fun enough without people to play with.

Plants vs Zombies did much the same (though more of a parody than a 'take that!') a while back.

Here are some of them: http://www.offworld.com/2009/08/the-new-secretness-popcaps-lat.html
