What should we point out first? The fact that this ad insinuates that women don't play video games or that they're only around to please men?

Was the game truly so terrible that you couldn't mention any of its actual features and had to rely on cheap strategy?

Who approves these. There have to be at least 15 people in the chain of command who could have chosen to just say no. but they didn't and here we are. This trash is now out in the world to see and we're sorry we are the ones to have to share it.

So we read the whole copy. We analysed the image for at least 20 minutes and we still couldn't tell you what the h*ll is going on here. 

Please tell us. We're seeing this in our nightmares now.
