GamingThread Valkyria Chronicles 4 is one year old today
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Excusing harmful sexual objectification and dismissing concerns surrounding sexism
Its the complaint that just won't die. People love using it as an example of how the game is awful because Raz should never have slapped her butt, but then they completely fail to talk about how this makes Raz look like an asshole in front of everybody and it also allows Kai to demonstrate how she doesn't put up with bullshit when she puts him on the ground for it. If you're going to complain, pick your battles correctly. The game has other examples of embarrassing fan service (which I enjoy and don't have any problem admitting) but this butt slap ALWAYS comes up.

EtcetEraThread 2020 Democratic Presidential Primary | OT | Bernie hires Sirota after he had written articles attacking rivals
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Rationalizing racism over a series of posts, previous severe infractions
What people don't get when they say Trump was voted due to racism or due to economic anxiety is that racism is frequently stoked from misplaced economic anxiety. Briahna's point with her admittedly very clumsy analogy is that both a white and black person may take that offer for $100 and both may hesitate or not hesitate for different reasons, none of which changes the fact that BOTH race and economic need are playing a role. We consistently find in polling that people are more likely to vote against social programs or for cuts if it's framed as benefiting certain minorities and less likely if it's race neutral, and yeah that's totes racist, but the racist belief that minorities are abusing social programs stem not primarily from malicious intent to harm but rather misplaced economic anxiety about of those limited resources. It's still racism, sure, but that doesn't mean that racism isn't born from an economic fear that others are taking what's theirs.

Nope. Then we would be having a different conversation. "It would have sold X times more on Steam" or "It only sold that much in the first week because of all the publicity it got" or maybe even "what price did each copy sell for cause most of that could have been Russian cheap copies" or something else equally asinine. The goalposts would just shift. Like I said, literally NOTHING they can say that would make people accept the fact that most people dont care where they buy their game from. People wanted this to fail. So desperately that you can practically taste it in this thread. The bile is unreal.

Lol. The Valve tax takes money out of developers pockets, thereby reducing the number of games. Steam has seen little innovation over the last 10 years.

I don't view people as binary constructs. Racism is taught, is not inherent, and is expressed across a wide spectrum. The fear that's often used to instill racism is usually based on perpetuated ignorance. While the blind total hatred form of racism is definitely still a thing (and sadly increasing as of late), I don't believe it's as binary and commonplace as it was during the civil rights era. That kind of bigotry these days is mostly reserved for the lgbtq community.

Specifically if you look at the various fatalities we know so far how on earth would those work on The Terminator .... who is a machine basically (basically this may also be a clue why there are no Cyborg Ninjas in this game at all). Not to mention that having The Terminator as a DLC character is totally retarded and dosen't fit the franchise at all. All the previous guest characters like Jason, Freddy. Alien, Predator, Leatherface, etc all fit in just fine with their horror backgrounds and the fact you know that they are all flesh and blood.... Just accept it that the codename TER was short for Terminas (or whatever it was) which got changed to Geras... probably because the name Terminas sounds stupid as hell....

Reason User Banned (3 Days): Advocating piracy
Very disappointed to hear that these games have all been delayed a year, however I'm liking Epic's new spyware-free web client and pricing model for early access: I wonder if the games going to the Microsoft Store will be on Game Pass, and if there will be new hardware to run RTX games at high frame rates by the time is released on Steam. It's also one thing to be paying for exclusivity, but another to be paying companies specifically to not do business with one another store. I wonder about the legality of that - it reminds me of Intel paying companies to not carry AMD hardware, for example. And Steam really needs to add some kind of clause to prevent companies from advertising their game on the service for months, only to sell exclusivity to someone else.

Dana is apparently only 30 years old too, but all that bobo has taken its toll. Charley should probably slow down herself while she still looks semi-normal for her age. Why young woman do this to themselves I'll never understand. You're 20-30 years old, you're not Nicole Kidman. A lack of frown lines in your face doesn't make you look youthful, it makes you look off-putting, expressionless and weird. That's not Ziggler, is it?

GamingThread Reuben Langdon (Dante of DMC) blames sexual harassment victims; thinks MeToo and BLM "goes too far." UPDATE: Langdon Responds; Capcom investigating
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Whataboutism, disingenuous commentary and thread derailment over a series of posts; alt account
No. But that's not quite the objection I have. In fact it's crazy to compare unjust civil right laws and drug use law in Japan. Unjust civil right laws are waaaaaay worse. The question I had had more to do about what Capcom should do vs what Sega did. As much as I don't understand Japanese culture and their drug laws I can see why they would fire someone for breaking the law. That's what Japanese society agreed on. So in Capcom's case I think I'm also OK with Capcom firing the actor if they make the case that he misused the social platform... But we kind of need to be clear what is expected here.

That's the thing. He's probably an okay dude who is wrong about these things (lets just go with that to avoid angry responses). Hee should inform himself so he comes across as less ignorant and/or harmful. But you know, people of course have to take it way too far. Basically calling for him losing his job and labeling him as sexist/racist or a bad person because of his fucking opinions on controversial topics. Like Jesus Christ, people need to get a grip and realize in the real world people have different beliefs and values.See stuff like this is a problem on this site. Absolutely ridiculous.

He's the ghost of a Greek Spartan warrior. Many Greek people, including myself and family, are that dark but we're not considered to be black. I have to mark myself as white on legal documents even though I don't really feel like I'm white when compared to other nationalities. That being said, he's a video game character so he can be whatever he wants to be. Kassandra is in Odyssey and there weren't any female Greek spartan warriors. I honestly couldn't care less whether or not he's black or white, or whether or not there were any Spartan female warriors. They're both great characters. As far as the original subject of this thread goes, it's quite a reach to be making such accusations, IMO. While I don't know who this guy is, taking a quick look at his posted videos makes it obvious that he does various characters as comedy. An integral part of comedy is crossing the line a little bit; that's what has always made comedy funny. I don't believe he is doing anything with malicious intent.

The fact that he is open about his beliefs and even supports that everyone believes what they want, isn't that good enough? he is a great guy and I would hate to see this affecting his performance/job on all these awesome games he has worked on.

I'm honestly confused as to why 75% of people in this thread is just pointing fingers at pewdiepie. I watched the livestream and yes he uttered the phrase "subscribe to pewdiepie" but half of you clearly haven't watched the stream nor read the entire manifesto. The shooter had such a different agenda that pulling Pewdiepie into this and shouting in caps that pewdiepie is the one to blame is lazy. Pewdiepie isn't dogshit, isn't complicit. or whatever dumb phrases you guys like to pull out to make the situation more complex. Pewdiepie is a youtuber like any other just making youtube videos while doing big things for himself and nothing else. If pewdiepie ever had an agenda to manifest a culture for shootings then he wouldn't be at 90+ million subscribers. Pewdiepie has 90+ million subscribers because people like games and meme culture to a extent. People like the shooter are NOT the manifestation of pewdiepie culture. The shooter is a manifestation of someone who couldn't see whats reality and what isn't on the internet and in real life. The man was literally raised from 4chan memes. Not pewdiepie. I feel like like i'm rambling on here but I'm just stunned that people in this thread can just write vague 5+ worded sentences stating that pewdiepie is the problem. Like you literally add no value to the discussion except causing threads like mine. More heated arguments and drama. Like wtf

People clarified this is not the problem, but if we want to discuss this point especially, I don't think it is really an issue for employment. because, what about the opposite? the majority of video games characters are white males, so does this mean they should be voiced by white males only, I don't really think so. in my humble opinion, thoughts of white supremacists and racism won't stop until people stop drawing a line between others based on their color. in my country there is no racism between white and black (but there are other types of racism, no place is perfect after all), because nobody care if someone white or black did something wrong, the essence is that they did something wrong, it doesn't matter what their color is. so I don't see any issue with black person voicing a white character or the other way around, it is not an issue by itself, until people decide to make an issue of it. this is my personal view. again, i understand people are clarifying that this is not the issue here.

I honestly don't think PDP is a bad person at heart based on me watching his video's on and off since 2012, but I can say that he is retarded. He has dark humor and says things that are generally not acceptable but I think he doesn't at times know the consequences of his actions and words. If that is because of his upbringing in Sweden or something else, I do not know. In no way do I condemn his actions, but with me watching him for so long I can only give you what I think his way of thinking is. From this point on wards though, every real mistake he makes now is totally on him. He should address this incident and other things in a video. His fanbase is way too big and there are a lot of children in it. Educating them on why this meme culture he created and more is not acceptable is the right thing to do at this point. Also, the hate you give the guy is somewhat justified, but it does get a bit extreme in this thread.

I'm fairly certain Felix has the same political views as Petterson and Shapiro. He's clearly on the right/conservatism side. People got fooled because he's funny, has that cool attitude and all, but he clearly is. I'm shocked people realized this now or need to search on his twitter to see who he does or doesn't follow. Pewdiepie is the embodiement of what an human 4chan would talk and think like. 4chan is funny, hard to recommand, borderline, controversial and clearly on the right side of the political spectrum. Pewdiepie is exactly that. Yes, Pewdiepie is more on the right and conservatism spectrum of political ideas. It's like some people tried to believe otherwise because they wanted him to be left, just so they could feel better at watching his content. Does being a right/consevatist make him a white suprematist ? Nope, not even close. Does being a right/conservatist make him accountable for what a 28 year old deranged adult did in NZ ? Certainly not, even if the killer was making references of Pewdiepie. There are a lot of fucked-up people in the world. You can never be certain a jackass on pills will not do something awful and despicable in your name. When hardcore salafist kill innocents people in Syria or Irak, they do it in the name of Islam or to defend what they - wrongly - think to be muslim values. Should all muslim or the Quran be accountable for all those deaths ? No, certainly not. All those innocent killings by salafists are the awful deeds of crazy and bloodlusted people. When someone deranged scream he's killing innocent people in the name of Pewdiepie or uses his meme or anything, should Pewdiepie be held accountable for it ? Certainly not because there are no double standard to have. It smells a lot like people in this thread just hated him prior this event and just use this event to hate him even more. It's fine, but trying to paint him as a white suprematist because he said the N-word once or because he's inviting Ben Shapiro on his shows is just being dumb and very obtuse. Trying to held him accountable for the NZ killing because some want to believe hard he's a white supermatist is even dumber and pretty transparent. You don't have to find yourself dumb excuses to hate Pewdiepie.

Thank you for creating another Epic Game Store hate thread. For people who do not like Epic paying for exclusives, you have very easy solution. You can just ignore their store and not buy anything from it. Instead, you can buy games from all of the other game stores including Steam, Good Old Games, Origin, Ubisoft's Store, Activision's Store, the Microsoft Windows App Store, Xbox's Game Store, Nintendo's Store, Sony's Store, Apple's App Store, the Google Play Store, etc. I have never seen so many people get so angry over something which is so trivial. The hate Epic is getting over opening a game store is equivalent to getting hate for selling hamburgers on turf. Do you realize how ridiculous it is to get angry over someone selling games and giving money to the people who actually make the games? Do you realize how bizarre it is that you guys are all rooting for the greedier middle man (Valve)? This "we hate Epic for opening a new store" phenomenon is very strange and doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

GamingThread Tim Sweeney confirms Epic is paying to keep games off third party sellers (Inc The Division 2)
Reason User Banned (3 days): advocating piracy
Third party exclusivity has no place on PC. Ever. End of discussion. If Epic wants to swing its Fornite bucks around, they should invest in development process of these "struggling indie games". Like a real publisher, not this crap. Cutting out 3rd party stores from selling game keys is obviously a way to keep prices high. There's no way in hell this can benefit consumers and its ludicrous to argue otherwise. I don't think anything else needs to be said, but fuck Sweeney, fuck Epic and every game exclusive to the EGS should top PirateBay. Since Epic is offering sales guarantees to devs who accept exclusivity, every "lost sale" equals more money Epic has to pay to these devs. I think that's the only way they'll get drained fast enough to declare all PC gamers pirates and slink off to consoles. Again.

You might not agree with the things that he does, but in this instance there's no one to blame but the psychopath that carried out this horrendous crime.

When first learning about the Epic Game Store, I would say "no". If the price is the same, there is no advantage for me to go with EGS at this present time. But.... after encountering the same motley crew sullying every single thread on ERA about EGS (even some that are, at best, loosely related) with the same monotonous drivel -- I won't name names but we know who they are -- I would now say "yes" simply to spite these folks. If by some infinitely unlikely miracle, my one purchase on EGS is the one that pushes Epic into success in the marketplace, it will be thanks solely to these pseudo-economics-major wannabe experts that it happened, running their mouths about "anti-consumerism, damnit!" and "it's NOT competition!" ad nauseam. So thanks to those buggers, my answer is now "yes". Petty and childish on my part? Yep... don't care. Thanks for your help, the angry few.

And yes, i never once countered the fact that he needs to take a step back and reevaluate the shit he's doing. It's a larger social problem, though. Youtube's personality culture and the need for constant attention tends to generate extreme antics and responses. The fact that people make a living by doing stuff like this on youtube makes them cater to every fucking demographic possible for those views. The problem is that because you constantly see their face and all the interactivity associated with youtube / twitch / whatever streaming platform (comments / donations / fan requests etc.) makes a regular user feel a connection to them as opposed to a TV show. And they feel the need to please that audience for the money and attention. So, yeah, the world is fucked.

GamingThread A Nintendo Direct on Reggie's last day, hosted by Doug Bowser and Reggie Fils-Aime, would be awesome
Reason User Banned (3 days): Creating a troll thread
On April 15th, a Nintendo Direct, hosted by Doug Bowser and Reggie Fils-Aime, would be awesome. Nintendo has always been a very fan servicing company. From the events they host to the Nintendo Direct presentations we all get to enjoy to the one on one openness they give us at venues such as E3...they’re a pretty cool group. I was thinking that with April 15th being Reggie’s last day, could there be a Nintendo Direct planned? Something fun like Doug opening it up and getting ready to announce a new game, but Reggie steps in and says “Hold on, let me kick ass and take names...one last time.” (And I get it, to be a little more family friendly, he might not say “ass”, but you get the picture.) From here we get a cool new reveal and then the show proceeds as it normally would with Doug and other Nintendo folk leading the rest of the way. Throw in one final game at the end where Doug and Shuntaro Furukawa bring Reggie back in, asking if he would like to show off one more game and Reggie says, “No, now the time is yours” and Doug proceeds with said last title/perhaps a small montage of Reggie over the years. What do you all think of a possible Nintendo Direct on April 15th and it going a little bit like how I suggested? Also...wanting it to happen/actual likelihood or two different things of course!

I just saw the photo of the shooter and I immediately felt a burning desire to make him suffer and then kill him , his whole family too and erase his whole genetic code out of existence. Had the same reaction yesterday with the video. I don't tend to have these kind of irrational thoughts or feelings.........

I just think we have to be very measured in who we classify as enablers. There are certainly people, many people, who have helped create an enviroment that fosters the school of thought that these shooters subscribed too but we still must be careful. Would you burn your Hitchens and Dawkins books if the shooter claimed to be a huge fan of theirs? Also: Just because someone in this thread has a difference in opinion, and I am speaking about the not very agregious ones, does not make them a vile piece of shit. My condolences to the Muslim Community of Christchurch.

Couldn’t really sleep at all last night, this whole thing is just awful. Of course these kind of people won’t go after ISIS or anyone that can fight back. My worst fear from this is that it’s been proven effective with the current political climate, even if he literally outlines it in his manifesto that his intention is to divide both sides we literally can’t help ourselves but immediately fulfill his wishes and politicize this & be at each other’s throats. Whether it’s Candace Owens, Pewdiepie, or Spyro the fucking Dragon he practically just paints his targets in his manifesto seemingly at random and like clockwork we execute. It’s not like he’s some kind of brilliant mastermind either, it really just speaks volumes that left and right are at that point that we can easily be led and manipulated by a deranged, meme-sprouting incel. The meme sprouting part is what is really haunting about this stuff and grounds it in a weird way. You really see the personification of a /pol/ shit poster here and it’s disturbing. Moreover, I really worry that this style of live-streaming the mass shooting with a GoPro will inspire others. Some dumbass edgelord is going to eventually try and do this with a school shooting and I only hope we can prevent it.

Sidenote I think calling him responsible is a slippery slope. Someone who voted for Trump is not necessarily responsible for Trump's actions, but they are complicit and they have a way to rebuke any actions they don't agree with. His response to this, and actions moving forward are what are critical here.

I can’t believe all the hate for Pewdiepie in this thread. It’s ridiculous. What you all don’t understand is that he’s. He’s literally still just a dude in his bedroom making funny youtube videos, he doesn’t care if he has 10 subs or 90 million. He’s gonna keep doing what he’s doing. It’s bullshit that y’all think he could be responsible because he makes jokes. The very fact that they are jokes discourages anything like this; you all that are hating act like he actually inspires people to do things like this. He’s literally making fun of people that think that way; that’s the essence of the joke. The shooter obviously did this just to take down Pewdiepie; it’s so easy to get people to attack someone like this. This likely will end him, btw. So y’all are helping the shooter check off an item on his bucket list. Yes, I’m slightly exaggerating, don’t be a moron. PS: Don’t @ me.

There are many outlets around the world debating if Fornite could have inspired the way he portrayed the act... It's just mesmerizing to me how people are capable to make death trivial in order to use it as a weapon towards things they dislike instead of focusing on the important matter, a supremacist terrorism act and the escalating movement from those people, who are less and less scared from executing these acts and thanks to the internet are establishing connections across countries while gaining presence in actual governments thanks to conservative parties doing all they can to keep in charge and plundering their countries. With this thread resetEra is proving to be no different, putting the focus of this tragedy in fucking pewdiepie, especially after he's condoned the tragedy... It's upsetting. I don't even understand how moderation has allowed the title to be this, in the most sensationalist and judgemental fashion possible. And before someone comes with that bullshit about "we talk about him because we are a gaming forum", no. This is just a distasteful way to use a tragedy to keep the hate on him. Some should take a look at themselves and think if their not becoming what they're fighting against...

I've followed PDP for a while (still a tolerant leftist progressive in a likewise country, don't worry), feel like PewDiePie often goes for a South Park kind of edgy humor. People who denounce PewDiePie, do you also denounce the writers of South Park, e.g. for spreading and making light of anti-semitism and racism? Not making an implicit point here beyond that I think it's pretty similar. I'm genuinely interested in how you compare this material to PDP.

Have you guys seen anything about the manifesto? I don't like or care for PDP but the shooter had a ton of sarcasm, irony, memes, racism, facism, shitposting etc. in it. He even had the damn navy seal copy pasta in it and mentioned Spyro and Fortnite. Before we all jump on PDP, lets be real and admit that this dude was straight up crazy lunatic and had loads of internet culture spread throughout his manifesto, with 8chan posts etc. probably so people all have this same reaction to nearly anything he mentioned and try to pin blame on any one person when its a crazy huge list. PDP needs to just disappear after this.

It's worth pointing out that a lot of the time (and let's especially roll back at least 5 years) while all of those people are controversial and ultimately trolls, none of them had particularly rallying viewpoints about causing violence or spreading the hate. People will always believe they are the morally justified party, and while the slippery slopes lead to hatred and bigotry, I believe a lot of people who followed them are as simple as "I don't care for all this in the world" which is shitty but not as shitty as "I want to spread some hate and promote violence!". I know it's shitty to even make that distinction but when people keep conflating lesser evils as being equally bad you have to set the record straight. We're human and we all err, and no one individual is worse than the people who actually take weapons in their hands and murder someone else.

GamingThread Let's Have A Conversation About YouTubers (A Megathread)
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Dismissing concerns about racism
This is a great thread idea, I do agree with certain examples made such as the ChannelAwesome controversy, however I do think it's inappropriate to include Pewdiepie's E;R feature and JonTron's livestream debate. The E;R thing was something Felix had revoked immediately when he learned of the channel's content beyond what he had seen & recommended. It's important to keep in mind that in that video he promoted nearly 30 different channels, and with the workflow of upkeeping his own career, it's understandable that he didn't have the free time to dive very deeply into each one. Saying he's an anti-semite for something he corrected as soon as the information was made aware to him is frankly unfair and unrepresentative of the situation. This can also be applied to JonTron's debate, in the context of that debate he was on the spot with many points and regretted many opinions he had shared and how they were worded/lacked research. .. Again I don't think it's fair to criticize someone for actions that they have retracted. Of course this only makes sense to a certain extent, factors such as time and context for the situation those actions took place in as well as actions taken afterwards definitely matter. This is why I'm excusing these situations, but can't bring myself to excuse Felix using the N-word, that's absolutely something he should've known better on. Even in that situation however I still think it's inaccurate to say he's a racist because of that, considering he has never exhibited any serious racist tendencies outside of that one moment which was clearly a knee-jerk reaction with no thought behind it. If I am wrong on this however I'd love to see any examples so I can correct myself. With these things in mind I also think it's unfair to lump in anyone who even associates with these people with the heavy implication that they are bigoted and just as guilty, especially when that seems to contrast with this sentence from the OP:Speaking frankly this gives a pretty uncomfortable precedent for the conversation, like if you disagree that these people are bigots or separate art from artist yourself then you should share the burden. Especially since both Mark and Oney have been friends with Felix and Jon respectively for years preceding their respective controversies. Personally I'm of the mindset that it's perfectly reasonable to vote with your wallet/clicks/watch time/whatever if you find a creator egregiously heinous even for things outside of the art they create. However, I also don't mind separating art depending on how severe a creator's views are with a ratio of how much I enjoy the content. Personally I think Felix is in a bit of a golden age right now with his content and it's impressive how he's seemingly flawlessly pivoted from gaming content to filling the niche of being a meme culture channel. I also greatly appreciate how he's used his platform to help others, such as in the previously mentioned YouTuber shoutouts vid and the His business sense is commendable. Meanwhile, Jon is impressive for seemingly being able to beat the algorithm somehow, still sticking to producing high quality videos at a slow rate for years in spite of the shift to YouTube emphasizing cranked out daily uploads. Both of these creators do incredible things with their platforms and in that sense, I can definitely justify separating that. In my opinion, the net benefit of their success outweighs their controversy, but again that's just my opinion, I don't think anything less of anyone who cannot separate that.

Do you realize that Daniel Vavra made first Mafia? And you know what? That game was placed in fictional American city between years 1930 and 1951 and surprise! there were afroamericans. He even worked on Mafia 2 and guess what, there were afroamericans too and even asians. Just wow right? Do you know that this game doesn´t even have Czech voice over, even though it is a historical game about Czech? i can also call this bs and be angry, because why would people in Bohemia spoke English,that doesn´t make sense. But hey they didn´t have money and Czech voice actors sucks and want too much money for it Also you wanna say, that you know more about how Bohemia looked like in 1403 than Czech historians? Especially when you know nothing about my country? Really? This game is not a fantasy genre. It´s a historical game and developers did everything they could to find any trace of minorities in Sazava in 1403. They discussed it with many historians and the result was the same. They didn´t find any record of afroamericans in that time period. Could they have added them? Ofcourse they could, but they wanted to be as much accurate as it can be to the history of my country. I understand that it can be frustrating, but that doesn´t mean that they are trying white wash this game. And just because they decided to prefer historical accuracy over checking boxes to please everyone doesn´t mean that they are racist.

All of this hostility isn't needed, nor was it even asked for. If you actually were to kindly go read my previous posts I never stated once that PewDiePie is the beacon of hope and justice, and that his prior actions are the greatest thing to ever occur to humanity. No, instead if you are to actually read the context I stated that the bit in the video was not in fact related to PewDiePie as he and his beliefs and past actions, instead it was a meme of a current competition going on between T-Series and PewDiePie. No where, not once, did I agree with PewDiePie or defend him. So kindly back down from your attacks and before posting actually read the context. I understand this is a very, very hot topic, but I stated that the terrorist's comments were in fact not at all linked to PewDiePie outside of it being a meme. Poor taste of a meme? Fuck yes, but a meme nonetheless that doesn't link one to the other on grounds of reason. Trust me, I do not like this. I believe all religion and culture should be intertwined respectively. I also fucking hate that this terrorist is Australian, born and bred in my home country where I live and shared with. That, is fucked up. But what needs to be done is understanding why, how and what can we do. Stop throwing it under the rug of "oh its just those silly white supremacists at it again!" because it isn't. This is serious, people are being groomed suffering mental illnesses that can not associate what is real and what isn't, and they are being told that immigration is bad and killing some people in New Zealand will help stop the boats. That's a fucking lie.

Please do not insult me. I do not know you. If I went based on his past actions, I would be defending him. But that would be idiotic, as I do not know him personally, nor does he know me, and most importantly . Everyone here likes to presume what he will respond before he actually does, and get angry at it, and he always responds something different. For example, people defaced a WWII memorial with "subscribe to Pewdiepie" the other day. He gave a video response, where, surprise surprise, he did not say "lol this is just a meme" or "antisemitism is bad, wink wink" like ERA said he would. Likewise, ERA is now angry that he does not take responsibility for this, or at least acknowledge that he has a fanbase among the alt-right and distance himself from them with a strong and serious condemnation. But . We said what we had to say, now I wait for his response (which, again, I feel will be disappointing - likely something along the lines of condemning what happened, but saying that his fans are not like this at all and he did absolutely nothing to foster this mentality). edit: Also, I have already expressed my thoughts surrounding Pewdiepie in the other thread. I can link to it if you really want to hear what I think, but again I think that it is all words in the air until he actually gives a response defending or condemning himself.

I mean... this might be slightly off-topic but lately I visit 4chan quite a lot because of apparant leaks coming from there and after visiting that place for a while I somehow ended up spiraling down in that same behaviour and it kinda made me not enjoy reading anything there, yet I come back for more. That is to say as long as you are between a group of certain unruly people that like to hate/vent/be edgy “for fun” even while I myself do not feel like participating I automatically drift that direction regardless because I’m surrounded by it. Which kinda worries me, because it kinda shows how easy it is to spiral out of control without intentionally doing so and ending up joining the ideology of the unruly, resentful side. coming here on Era I sometimes think that this place is able to breed haters as well by the harsh way they condemn certain things against commenters that don’t necessarily have bad intentions and by not tolerating these people that do not yet see things the right way you scare them off to the opposite way... maybe because they want to understand but now they feel left out and end up joining the other side where they can say ResetEra is just as bad a place as any other. That might actually be part of the bigger problem as well in my opinion. By being so passionaly heated by justice people tend to forget that the strong should protect the weak, not scare them off and hate them for not yet understanding. I hope I was able to explain my intention well, I’m not a native english speaker but my message has nothing else in it but willingness to learn, please remember that when I might have said something possibly stupid, I gave this post a lot of thought.

Not trying to defend pewdiepie or anything but how is he complicit? The choices an individual makes is ultimately up to that individual. So if this piece of shit decided to go massacre a bunch of innocent people that’s on him. Blaming YouTube, or pewdiepie, or anyone else for that matter doesn’t make much sense, unless those aforementioned strictly instructed the guy to kill these people. If we’re gonna blame pewdiepie we might as well blast all right wing media while we’re at it.

EtcetEraThread Footage of Michael Jackson ring shopping with a young boy resurfaces
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Bad faith argumentation: claiming to have no opinion but then repeatedly providing justifications for Jackson's behavior; inflammatory false equivalence and obfuscation regarding child grooming allegations
No, like I said I have no opinion on this matter. I can't prove/don't know which of MJ or Safechuck is lying or telling the truth. I can see either situation being true. I don't see an issue with befriending kids or hanging out with them, again that's perfectly normal. The "groom them" is a point of contention that the MJ camp denies, so I don't know why you're stating it as a matter of objective fact. Sleeping with kids is insanely weird, but then MJ was a very, very weird person. Don't think anyone would dispute that. As others kids have stated they slept with MJ and state he never sexually abused them, so it's clear that MJ sleeping with kids it's not a slam dunk for him abusing them. I never said people shouldn't assume the worse in MJ, I think that's a plausible opinion. I also think thinking that MJ was just a very very strange guy that didn't abuse kids is also a plausible opinion. My point about being friends with kids was irrespective of this MJ case, I outright stated that in my statement incase you missed it.

I dont think MJ showed the porn to the kids, he probably had it in his nightstand and the kids rummaged and found them. If thats a crime then my parents are criminals. The other stuff, MJ isn't your average person, he had no childhood and wanted to see what it was like through these "child porn" books. "boys will be boys" has pretty nice art depicting the joys of growing up as a child, from what I can sample online. I get the point of "if this was anyone else, you'd call them a pedo" argument, and I would call this person a pedo absolutely in that case, but I don't think its because we're blind since we love MJ so much. It's because its MJ was one messed up dude and to me its believable he actually wanted to do all of this weird stuff innocently.

How is this thread not a graveyard for all the disgusting posts calling the accusers liars? Mods are very pro-active at disciplining any poster who questions race, gender or trans issues, so why is it allowed in this case? Because he made Thriller?

I've actually reflected on that more than anyone else in here. Which is why this documentary pisses me off so much. Because, let's assume for a moment that he's guilty. That means we let a predator walk free to prey on more kids. And the best excuse we can come up with for this is that "he was groomed/fucked up in the head"? Fuck that shit. There's a cycle of abuse & violence that gets perpetrated when we don't report this shit when it happens and stand up for the victims I'll never see my justice served because what happened to me is known only to me and one other person: the person who did it. I told my mom, but that's it. I'll never be able to go to court and bring him to justice because it's my word against his. In this case, you mean to tell me that, with multiple accounts of fuckery going on, Wade just decided to validate MJ's position and that's okay? Garbage.

I haven’t seen the documentary ( not on Netflix and no HBO Go in Spain ). Yes it’s odd to give a kid a ring indeed. But that’s not proof of abuse. I never liked MJ having kids as friends. I remember that infamous interview where he was in bed with them watching movies and drinking milk. At best, the guys was a weirdo. We ALL agree on that. But an abuser ? I’ve seen those 2 guys interview on CBS and I have to say they look don’t look convincing. Especially when Gayle King ( she’s just into thise things now it seems ) asked them if it was for the money. I’m not saying they’re telling lies - I don’t know - but I will need more than that to be convinced. Those are exactly the same allegations made by the same people 2 decades ago. Why should I believe them now when it was debunked then ?

It seems you missed the point of our socratic dialogue. it isn't just gender that matters for the purposes of impact analysis. You have to consider things like cultural appropriation, ageism, and all other kinds of experience discrimination that people go through. for example, you are advocating for the use of y'all as a common parlance of a group of people. Did you stop to consider the impact that would have on people from the south who feel that is a cultural appropriation? did you stop to think about the impact of the word mates on people from Australia? The impact on gender fluid people is not the most important thing in the world. You have to consider the impact on everybody incoming to a cultural consensus.

Only when op decides it does.

Guys isn't a gender neutral term entirely but OP isn't offended by it so it's a pick and choose when to be offended scenario and I don't understand why am entire forum should bend to the whim because a few members at one moment decide to ban a word.Lol drop the faux outrage. It's silly. People are absolutely deciding to be offended, You know what 99.9% of people do when they see shit they don't like online? They scroll and ignore, except in circumstances like this. OP is fine with guys. Guys is a gendered term and has a gender opposite "gals". Similarly everyone suggesting Folks doesn't work because it's common in parts of the UK to only call parents "folks" so unless your a parent you are equally as excluded and have the potential to be offended. It's fucking OBVIOUS from the usage of the term that "boys" is intended to be group inclusive or should we just stop talking about genders entirely? Lets ban any gendered words from the entire dictionary. Oh and if your native language has any gendered words at all you have to stop speaking it.Strange because I know plenty of women who are absolutely fine with it

My girlfriend & I were shopping at Charlotte Russe in the mall. Not a huge fan, but they’re having a huge Going Out of Business sale, so we were checking it out. She grabbed some new clothes & headed to the back of the store to enter the dressing room. I stay in the main area of the store and sit on a little seat meant for people trying on shoes. A few minutes go by & she texts me to come check out the new outfit she’s trying on. So I walk to the back of the store where the dressing room is. I meet up with my girlfriend while she’s looking at herself in the main mirror in the hallway of dressing room doors. As soon as I reach the mirror where my GF is, I am yelled at by some lady??? She looks like a manager. Then She says something like “You can’t be back here! I have girls back here so you can’t be here!” I was appalled! I said to her somewhat passively agreesively “Oh that’s pretty sexist?” As I walked towards her. She doesn’t look at me, shakes her head, and says “I don’t care” in a bitchy attitude and waves for me to follow her & for her to walk me out of the store. I didn’t want to cause a scene because I just wasn’t in the mood, so I just walked out. What the fuck?

I think being different is ok and obviously should be respected and given the same dignity as anyone else. I think you, OP and anyone else that is offended and insecure about generic terminology that has been, will be, and continue to be used based on gender roles, Male and female need to look at things objectively. Your insecurities and sensitivities are based on the fact that you know your different. In no way any less of a person in my eyes, but your smart enough to know you dont fit in with the overwhelming majority of people who are comfortable in their own skin and gender. This is why your having issues with labels and words. Work on self confidence and understanding that acceptance works both ways. You wanting nouns, pronouns and societies way of speaking to change does not make sense, just like anyone telling you to change wont make sense either. Words are simply that. Words. Understand yourself, understand society and be tolerant enough to let things go. No one is out to intentionally hurt you, if they are it would be direct, obvious and unquestionable. Twisting words to further fuel your insecurities isn't something that is fair or acceptable to anyone.

It’s about the game and not who is behind it, views, actions opinions of people. It’s about the game and the game only. Regardless of the actions and behaviour of a person, it doesn’t take away that the game is fantastic and made by a lot of talented people not just one individual. Saying that by buying the game said individual is getting rewarded, does it mean other members of the team won’t? Just close this thread. The pointless conversation is being going on too long.

Not attacking. Just concerned for your mental well-being. Just stay away from M-rated games if M-rated content makes you uncomfortable. They were telling a story and there is a definite payoff to the sex scene. If all you view it as is a game where you shoot nazis then you clearly didn't pay attention the story at all to the point where I'm baffled that you even noticed the sex scene. Again, if that is the part of that particular game that made you uncomfortable, you should really seek help.

And the "they talk like that..." is problematic, absolutely, but I also see the look he gives the camera before he does an impression of "my drunk racist uncle" with his body language before he says it. Dude is fucking joking. I mean, it's super obvious. Does Rich need some time outside of his middle American bubble to know that "ching chong" whatever is no beuno, probably.

I have no way of playing the game but I AM sticking with my avatar. I really wish people that take things at face value did some actual research because the mainstream media is ignoring cold hard damning facts AND proof that these two men are anything but trustworthy. Actually they are admitted liars and perjurers and much more. Again, please fact check them!!!!!!!! Wade Robson Their stories have also changed several times and they are full of contradictions and inconsistencies. When Wade the filed his lawsuit against the estate he had to present the judge with a diary of his own and in it it says he's doing this to save his failing career and to be relevant and relatable again. Before he had even sued the estate he had been singing MJ's praises. Begged to be at the memorial and cried his eyes out. Has a chapter in the opus book called My Mentor and calls MJ one of the most amazing human beings, something along those lines, it was with even more praise. Did tons of tribute shows but only when he was denied a role for the Cirque show by the estate he did a complete turnaround and realized he was abuse. What does he do? He tries to have a tell all book published, nobody interested. Then sues estate for undisclosed amount of money. Case thrown out for above reasons about diary and lying under oath. James Safechuck He is being sued himself and in his own word he saw Wade in TV and suddenly realized he was abused too. Joined Wade. I can go on and on but it's best to watch this here video. He's to my knowledge not a fan but he brings facts and in the link that I will post you will even see proof. There's also a document on Twitter where it can be seen that Wade and his mother were scheming the different versions of their story. The link I will place under the video. It's a investigative journalist doing the mainstream media's job but again, they all ignore it.

GamingThread Main Female Protagonist Characters having Sex
Reason User banned (1 week): sexism
Let me start by saying who I am so you all might get a view of who the thread starter is before viewing my opinion about female protagonist. I'm 31 years old male and gaming since the age of 5. I'm a muslim born in The Netherlands. I prefer to play Singleplayer games which are story driven. I worked 7 years in a gameshop and still follow all games although I have trouble keeping up these days with Moba's and Battle Royale games. I love playing games no matter what the sex is of a character. I think developers need to seek the best possible situation for when a male or female character can be used. Not make it a male or female character for the sake of it. Everything what developers do when it comes to gender is fine, but when I see that my lady character is getting touched, intended or not intended I feel like ''Hey don't touch her'' or why do they need to be touched? With male characters this is not happening as it doesn't bother me till a degree. An example of when it bothers me is like in Uncharted 2. When Drake is found together with Chloe, while we all know that he has something going on for Elena. Aloy from Horizon is a strong character. When she will find any love in the second game (if we get one) it has to be a well developed character which fits with her character. Male or female doesn't matter aslong as the character she will fall in love suits her strong personality. Sadie Adler not a main protagonist from a recently game is a strong woman. Hoping we might see more woman like her in future games. (Hoping for DLC with her) When Lara had that rape scene (we all discussed that) I had the feeling ''why do they need to do this?''. Gamemagazines mentioned also that the game and movie industry almost always put woman in rape situations before they're getting strong and powerful. Why do we need situations like this? Another example is a scene of the gameplay trailer of Cyberpunk 2077. Although there is no rape here thankfully. Why does our character which is the main protagonist need to have sex with a totally stranger to be(come) a badass character. She already looks cool and strong. If this was a scene with the male character I wouldn't have bothered with it, but also not clapped for the guy. I would have said useless to put it in a game. Something says though it might suit this game to have sex with multiple characters instead of like... ...Mass Effect where the developers search every possible excuse to let their characters have sex with anyone and anything. Before I continue, believe me I have seen lots of nudity as we're exposed to that daily in the media, internet and everywhere else in The Netherlands and I have no problem with that all whatsoever. I'm also not asexual or against any kind of sexual course. Everyone can do what they want, but that's not the subject now. I said I wouldn't be bothered if it was the male character having sex in Cyberpunk 2077, but also not clapped for him. It bothers me though to see Geralt having sex with all the women in the game and including our lady gamers clapping their hands when it comes to him. He is already a powerful male character he doesn't need to be like Kratos... Kratos in the latest God of War with Atreus not included in this debate. Which was storywise superb. I can't think of anything which can substantiate the situation the women characters are put in or I have some issues and am thinking too deep. I will give one last example which makes the characters also more varied. In The Last of Us we all know how Ellie feels towards Riley. They kiss each other in the DLC which I think is suitable for characters. They like each other and it's a kiss, but when Ellie was kissing in the Last of Us: Part 2 trailer it felt awkward. Maybe I saw Ellie as my daughter and now she was kissing some character (which we know not much about yet) who has an ex boyfriend standing there watching them. Ellie is a strong independent woman why does she has to be in a situation like that? Also that scene gave me the feeling that we might see Ellie even kissing more characters. I don't have problem with her kissing it's just not the way to showcase main female protagonists like that.

Reason User banned (duration pending): History of hostility towards members and staff
I saw a mod in the latest Jim Sterling thread going down that line of reasoning, competion and so on, we know the drill. If anything it's getting worse.I'll err on the side of using spoiler-tags whenever possible and there never should be a timelimit. Of course some spoilers become so well know that it doesn't matter anymore but really important plot points should always be handled with caution. This is of course personal preference but afair Stump was more angry about really, really minor aspects of games getting 'spoiled'. Like how many chapters there are or names of enemies. Or E3 announcements.

There are mods who join the Epic cheer squad themselves. Quoted one here: No response, don't expect one either. How much shit eating would you have to do to look at those feature lists and still go "Yeah, I'll side with Epic on this one?" lol. We have a few mods who do care about PC, but by and large, I mean... the reality is this is a console-centric forum with volunteer staff made-up from that userbase. I've personally given up on any type of standard being maintained in PC-threads that aren't help/OT's.

Reason User warned: ignoring staff posts, derailing with meta-commentary over a series of posts
Alright, catching on with the last few pages. Concerning the character everybody is talking about, sure it looks young. But again, it's an anime character playing on some of the same anime tropes that were discussed at length here. Does it have issues? Maybe. Is it worth discussing? Absolutely! But I feel people were unfortunately missing the whole context under which it was posted. Honestly, I feel super bad for . She put herself out here, posted a design she was obviously super proud of, and people reacted with the same hostility as if it was a lolicon character from a cheap gacha game they've just seen pop up on social media. Or like she was one of those boner culture trolls. None of that was warranted. If I was her, I would have left here running to never come back. There are ways to discuss a design, especially if it's the design of a member posting it in good faith, without needlessly and aggressively demolishing it. On this site, and especially here in this thread, I think we demonstrated we are capable of emotional intelligence and empathy. Let's not forget it. We are better than that. I'm sorry if this post offends some people, but I had to say this.

Reason User banned (72 hours): Advocating piracy.
So I never played any of the Pokemon games I always wanted to but never got to it. Now I am planning to buy Switch when Sword and Shield come out but I decided to go through the whole series before playing SnS. Here the order I am planning to play them: 1. Pokemon Fire Red (remake of gen 1) 2. Pokemon Soul Silver (remake of gen 2) 3. Pokemon OR / AS ( remake of gen 3) 4. Pokemon Platinum (gen 4) 5. Pokemon B/W and B2/W2 (gen 5) 6. Pokemon X&Y (gen 6) 7. Pokemon Ultra Sun & Moon (gen 7) 8. Pokemon Sword and Shield (gen 8) As I said I am new to Pokemon the above order could be wrong so please correct me. I did some research and here are my options: 1. Emulation on phone (My Boy). This option have all the classic games until DS and it's free but control are naturally uncomfortable, drain my phone battery and I can't transfer my Pokemon between gens. 2. Buy 2DS xl then buy all the games through VC. It has all the classics except for HG/SS. But this option will be expensive but I got to play the games with their native controls and the ability to transfer my Pokemon. 3. Buy Switch and hope for the best! Currently there is no classic Pokemon games and we don't know when or if Nintendo gonna port the games like the 3Ds. So this is the delimma I am facing and I would like to hear your opinions on this

Another of her school friends fathers was a Chowdhary extremist preaching hate. Its hard to have any empathy for such people. They are given the freedom to live in the UK, throw it back in our faces, and then have the usual crowd (known terrorist sympathiser Corbyn and Abbott) defending them and banging on about "human rights".

That's what I originally did by putting that poster on ignore temporarly then upon seeing that maybe that person had came around I tried to give the benefit of the doubt uningore her , and the lines I quoted were LITTERALY the very first thing I saw ... I've said it here more than once I'm an INTERSEX dude and although in english I be using They/Them here in French in my regular life I can't that is depressing and fucked , and fucks with my brain and makes me depressed engouh as it is , it is soul crushingly a privilege I can't enjoy at all . So doing so in english spaces would further down my mental distress and depression . So muting that person for the upcoming trimester is literally me protecting myself . I hope that upon reading me further that person starts ALSO to understand that sexism doesn't only render men nasty but women too and this was a prime example here ... Is it tiring to always have to be the better person ? You bet it is and as intersex I know it all too well ... So it would be cool to not have idiots reducing me as "a guy" , when I spend my time when I'm here every three message reminding folk that I'm neither male nor female because in reality I'm both ... Now I shall take my functional and currently lactating tits out of here because muting wasn't enough given that if you intervened as a moderator is that this person keeps yappin at me ...

The Korean war was 70 years ago under extraordinarily different circumstances. Times are different, our available options are different, the geographic locations and relationships are different. Hell, if you haven't noticed, we have a massive in the number people dying as a result of war in the past few decades. Economic and Technological forces have made that possible what wasn't previously, ushering in the least amount of conflict the world has seen. You do get to have it both ways because the world isn't the 1950s and the two situations are completely radically different. If you can't understand that the options available in the 1950s to the US, South Korean and other UN forces facing a massive incursion of North Korean aligned forces are completely different than the options we have to dealing with an apartheid state in the year 2019, the level of banal reductionism you're descending to amounts to the point of parody, because I refuse to believe that one could just be willing to say something along the lines of "oh well nukes ended the war in Japan why don't we just use them every time" and be totally serious.

Red Text This thread was rebooted due to a number of issues, so we're setting some ground rules.
As of recent times Sony stoked a fair bit of controversey by applying “light rays” to select Japanese visual novel titles. It soon became apparent that this was a forward policy and would reflect upon future titles. Smaller Devs expressed dismay at working with the new guidlines and a Twitter “backlash” against Sony was formed. I believe devil may cry 5 containing censorship, enclosed within a patch is the first example of this policy applying itself to the aaa console space. The game remain uncensored on pc and Xbox and it seems at current the patch is only designed at the western ps4 release. Below is nsfw and spoilers Whilst I remain impartial to the topic I’m curious how it will affect future titles such as cyberpunk. How do we all feel ? Are you fully in support of Sony’s stringent new policy’s, or are you against them.
