GamingThread Kotaku: Assassin's Creed Odyssey Director Says 'We Missed The Mark' With Controversial DLC
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Dismissing concerns of LGBT issues as outrage culture, LGBT being a choice rhetoric, account in junior phase.
There needs to be a continuation of the lineage that you all like it or not, that is such a gamer's outrage for the fuck of it.. The name of the trophy is the only thing to get the tiniest bit worked up about if there's anything. And even then, how can anyone not see pass the point of view of the ones who decided on this. It's such a tiny thing when compared to the choices of which relationships you could pursue during the entire length of the game. If the point of the choices were to keep a open mind about relationships you'd choose, why not have a open mind over the actual narrative of the game that surrounds the lineage of assassins through times.

GamingThread Sonicfox: "I'm gay"
Reason User Banned (Permanent) - Homophobia
Sonic is my favorite FGC player, and I'm straight as an arrow. I personally feel that it's your prerogative to live your life however you see fit, but I think there's degrees to the disdain straight men have for male homosexuality. Imo, these four positions/areas trigger the hate for gay men -I feel that some men are "on the down low," and feel the need to lash out on social media or whenever feasible. -Some attacks homosexual men like Sonic, because of the stigmas associated with that type of activity...AIDS, high STD rates, etc. - Religious teachings -Disgust/repulsion of male on male sex acts As a black male, every gay black man I know was molested as a child or raped in jail/prison. That reality saddens me. I tend to believe that's not so much the case in other communities; however, I also have enough sense to know that's not the case for every black male...but it seems that way. I don't agree with male homosexuality, but gay men have the right to do them (or anyone else), peacefully. This is kinda a fucked a story, but it provides a small bit of context about some things I've stated. I believe the midnight launch of Black Ops 2 is when this happened. My best friend is on the west coast (we're from the east coast), who's married with a little girl...my god daughter. He also became a police officer, which always seemed like an odd profession for him. Anyway, I pickup the game and get back home to try it out. His little brother sees that I'm online (he's an adult at this point maybe early 20's at the time), and sends me a party invite on Xbox Live. I accept it, and he's basically having a nervous breakdown. He begins going in about how everyone is getting on him about not being successful or "getting his shit together." I'm basically his big brother, so I'm giving him positive affirmations, and telling him I got his back if no one else does. He then states, you're close to our family, but we have a lot of demons, etc., etc. I'm like, "how so, what's up?" He then goes in on his brother (my best friend) stating that he was raping him all through high school. His brother and I were basketball stars in high school, and his brother is a relatively know college basketball star, who became a police officer/detective after an injury. He cited particular instances of physical abuse that I remembered. His brother would lock him in his room some days when I would come over and bring my OG Playstation. I asked did he tell his mom, he said she was on drugs and didn't believe him. His brother had a really good reputation. He then showed signs of sympathy for him, because his uncle was molesting him prior to him molesting his little brother. My ex-bff use to always go see his uncle for money, but I could never come inside of his house...it's was always an odd scenario. His brother was in middle school at the time of the rapes. I asked, "were you all maybe wrestling or playing around and he grabbed you," because it was so hard to imagine my best friend doing this. We'd always double date best friends, and had a lot of girlfriends prior to us settling down. His brother stated, "I know how all of this sounds to you, but nah, we were having FULL BLOWN GAY SEX!" I'm still devastated by hearing those words come out of his mouth. I'm gonna be fucked up for the rest of my life behind this shit! I cut off my best friend behind this shit, and will never forgive or accept an explanation for what he did, but I still respect free will. Sonic can be gay, that's his choice. You have to respect his skill at fighting games nonetheless.

GamingThread Sonicfox: "I'm gay"
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks) - Excusing homophobia
We need to quit making a big deal out of this sort of stuff if we’re going to normalize it, which is the goal. At the same time I get that it requires some attention considering as a society we haven’t reached a point yet where announcing you’re gay is viewed to be as irrelevant as announcing you’re straight. Mainly I feel that the media needs to quit making headlines about people coming out as gay, it shouldn’t be made a big deal of, and ultimately the people that are in fact gay shouldn’t feel like they need to announce it or “come out”. It’s saddening to me, but I do feel like the media and even some ppl that are gay don’t help the cause when they make a big deal of it themselves. Telling the world your gay once is enough imo, you don’t owe it to anyone to keep repeating it.

You.don't.have.to.buy.the.dlc. Seriously. Just don't buy it. Vote with your wallet. It's not part of the main game. It's just bad side content. Kind of like a bad cosmetic skin for a shooter. I think Ubisoft is in the wrong but this is more of a "huh. that's dumb. Oh well." moment. You can literally just not pay 10$ for a bad dlc and not play it. It's that easy. It's not like this is hidden in the main game and you're forced to do it. This is side content that you need to opt in for. What a weird thread.

Nothing wrong with that. At the end of the day all you can be reasonably expected to do is treat other people with respect in regards to their preferred name and pronouns, if at the end of the day you can't see a trans person as anything other than their birth sex then that's perfectly fine, just don't be a raging asshole about it. Probably less than 1% of the population actually accepts trans people (talking about acceptance here not tolerance). Even as someone who meets the diagnostic criteria for GID myself, I still don't view transgender identities as valid barring a few exceptions.

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Inflammatory Commentary; Dismissing Concerns Surrounding Domestic Abuse; History of Severe Infractions
Gotta love the assumptions here. I've never read a comic, and hate war films. You have absolutely no idea what my life experiences are and what colors my perspective and context. Not sure how abandoning your family and running away to another country is "standing up to everyday injustice", but fine. Again, I wish this girl well, but I should be able to see her as something other than a "hero" without being seen as having malicious intent, as if viewing her as a hero is the only possible perspective one can have.There more than one way to assess certain actions, and more than one perspective can be reasonable. I mean, she abandoned her family and rejected all of Islam, so let's not pretend it's only the societal/cultural oppressive society in SA that she had a problem with. Not sure what's wrong with pointing that out. "Why do you give a fuck, this is really what you took away from reading all of this?" Why is everyone else in this thread allowed to give a fuck by commenting, and I'm not? Why are you so offended by the fact that I have a slightly different take? Not even sure what your comment means. I wish her well, but don't view her as anything close to a hero. I doubt this is some kind of radical opinion.

EtcetEraThread Gillette’s inspiring new ad addressing toxic masculinity asks: “Is this the best a man can get?”
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): inflammatory commentary
I can't stand the ad. I also disliked it on YouTube. Before mocking me please at least hear me out... I grew up with sisters and a single mother who worked hard for everything we got. So I have great respect for women. I know this ad wasn't directed at me but it still annoys me anyways. The reason is the way it seems to portray toxic masculinity as an almost exclusively white male problem. Don't get me wrong there's at least one adult black man in the video being toxic but it just feels like he was thrown in after someone brought the issue up. Imagine this video if the skin color on all the white and black men was reversed. Imagine how a black man would feel watching such an ad with the scenes at 0:37-0:38, 1:48, 0:56-1:00 and 1:01-1:05. If the ad had shown that this is a problem with all races by showing all (or most) of them being toxic then I would have been completely fine with it. As it stands now I won't be buying any more Gillette products since every time I look at them I'll just be reminded of this commercial. Not really a loss since I recently got a Braun shaver anyways and would have been cutting back on razors. I also understand that people will just assume I'm a far right asshole when the reality is I'm a Canadian liberal that despises Trump. I've probably made some enemies with my first post but I wanted people to know that not everyone offended is a right wing troll.

AnnouncementsThread Introducing GiftBot! Want to run a giveaway on ResetEra? GiftBot is our gift to you! (on hiatus)
Red Text Giftbot is currently on hiatus until he can be ported to the new software platform. He will return!
One of the most frequent requests we've received since launch has been for a forum bot that members can use to run giveaways safely and efficiently. You asked for it, and our team has been working hard to deliver. At last we're ready to show some results: Introducing ! To celebrate this launch we're holding our own inaugural giveaways with cool prizes. If you run into any bugs please contact . A true labor of love, GiftBot is being developed entirely in-house by our sleepless tech team. Coding GiftBot from scratch will allow us to fully customize and tailor its features over time to better respond to the needs of the community. The design plan was drawn up in close collaboration with moderators from SteamEra, a community that knows its way around giveaways like no other. GiftBot is a fully automated forum feature that takes the delicate work of running a giveaway safely out of human hands. The mechanical spin of its avatar is the only motion it will ever know (note: sorry, organics on ResetEra are still not allowed animated avatars). Like the that so crucially facilitated our first annual GOTY vote, GiftBot is a friendly and unarmed automation with no moderator functions. We're launching GiftBot with basic functionality that includes a First-to-Claim mode and a 24 Hour Raffle. Over time we intend to add many more features and options for users to customize how they want their giveaways to be run. By developing GiftBot ourselves, we've ensured that the sky is the limit! We are committed to the long term expansion and refinement of GiftBot as a service for the community. While GiftBot is meant to be a fun way for users to interact with their fellow ResetEra members, our lawyers have advised us to make a few things clear! For Givers: ResetEra, LLC is not responsible for any keys to submitted to GiftBot. Only submit keys to GiftBot that you are absolutely sure you want to give away or no longer want to use. For Receivers: GiftBot has no way to verify the validity of a key prior to giving it away. If you receive an invalid key from GiftBot, you have no recourse against either ResetEra, LLC or against the user who sponsored the giveaway (the "Giver"), though the Giver may offer you a replacement key if they so choose. Finally, neither ResetEra, LLC nor the Giver will provide technical support for the keys. If you have an issue with a key you receive through GiftBot, your only recourse is to contact the platform holder through which the key was to be redeemed for support. For Everyone: ResetEra, LLC makes no guarantee that GiftBot will be available at certain times or at any time. The services provided through GiftBot may be terminated at anytime and without notice. GiftBot is solely for the fun and amusement of ResetEra Members ("Members"), and ResetEra, LLC does not charge a cost to participate in GiftBot giveaways. However, GiftBot is only available to Members with an active account; if a Member's account is banned, either temporarily or permanently, then that Member will be unable to participate in GiftBot giveaways for the duration of their ban.

It's a beautiful place to stay/live and has it's bad spots just like anywhere else in the world but everyone seems to want to focus on the smaller issues there ( which are serious by all means ) all while ignoring bigger issues in other countries because they're a World Power that is on the verge of surpassing the US on pretty much every level other than military might. The way the hive-mind is here you'd swear China is the second coming of Nazi Germany which is honestly hilarious given all the good things the country has done worldwide as a whole.

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Trolling, account in junior phase.
This is one of those things that are nowhere near as prevalent or dramatic as the OP makes it sound when you only really play "western" games. Do you remember the Dead or Alive games? Yea theres a reanson they died out. What remains of these over the top grossly sexist games are generally found in the clearance section of unwanted games at a crappy games store. Now, crossing over to Japanese games... Well the last Japanese game i played was the Souls series. Other than that i avoid anything that has that "anime" aesthetic like the plague. "Fan service" isn't appealing to me at all. Things get more blurry when CDProject gets called out by people who dislike the what I assume is the female protagonist (I dont know much on the game) for wearing "sexy" underwear... In her house... After sex... So what? The argument is usually. "It doesn't have to be provocative, they could have picked a different color and/or underwear that showed less". Again, so what? Why should it NOT be provocative, why is that a bad thing?

EtcetEraThread Was the whole Disney-Star wars deal worth it?
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Misogyny; account still in junior phase
Here's my theory on what has happened to Star Wars without being too political. By the way, Solo is my fav Disney Star Wars. It was brilliant. When Kathleen Kennedy took over the brand there was a decision made that it needed to shift its appeal over to women and girls. My guess is that the Marvel Avengers brand was seen as appealing mostly to men and boys and Disney needed something besides Frozen etc that was going to hit that female market. The male fans who have always been with Star Wars will buy whatever has Star Wars branding on it but the women and girls needed to be persuaded to buy also. A complete shift in focus to women happened to Star Wars, from female leads in the movies to a Forces of Destiny cartoon that focused only on female characters. After the Force Awakens had wide appeal with men and women they saw the plan as working and went full throttle with widening the appeal to women and girls since the male demographic was buying everything as usual. What slowly happened was that the core fanbase was slowly getting left out in the cold with this new shift in focus. Finally with the Last Jedi which was a sort of Twilight in Space with some other things thrown in and a completely mishandled Luke Skywalker to appeal to the base, it all came crashing down. The Women and Girls never bought the toys they were supposed too and the core base (men?) didn't want them either. Now they are in deep trouble. The Women and Girls have left or moved on (though a few remain to ship Rey and Kylo) and the core fanbase is beyond pissed because the products of the movies and merchandise were not created to appeal to them at all. At this point Disney has to shift to a "stories for everyone" instead of "stories for girls" and hope that the core fans come back.

Reason User banned (2 weeks): excusing and diminishing sexual harassment over a series of posts + antagonizing another member via PM
My point is that sexual harassment is, as far as I know, illegal and being a douchebag is not. It is not clear to me that the guy sexually harassed her which is why I wondered the extent to which someone is responsible towards another adult. I don't think this is as black and white as you're making it out to be. I think that context matters. This is not a clear cut grooming case were a pederast lures a minor with promises and then coerces her into sex. We're talking about 2 adults that made plans to be intimate with each other and then one of them decided not to be intimate and another one decided not to be in the same place as the other. Now as adults the REASONABLE thing to do here would've been to find a middle ground that would satisfy both parties. Clearly the dude is far from a grownup but I ask again, to which extent are you responsible for another adult? What are you guilty for here? Being an asshole? Willingly endareging someone? or sexual harassment?

Reason User Banned (permanent): History of antagonistic and inflammatory posting
Incorrect. Obama didn’t choose his mom. You choose your spouse. And being a black woman who was a loyal soldier in the war on drugs and and had her office advocate for keeping black men imprisoned on non-violent felonies instead of early release, because their slave labor was too valuable. It isn’t JUST being married to a white man, it’s literallt betraying black folks at every turn along with being married to a white man, which is why the only base of support she has is white liberal men (natch for this site) and low information black voters. Dassit that’s all. I mean, since no one believes me even though I’ve brought it up many times, all you need to do is check the responses of this post to see that Kamala goes over with black women like a wet fart. Also, Kamala isn’t black, doesn’t have a black American experience at all, has never made any substantive steps towards helping the black community, nothing. All skinfolk ain’t kinfolk, we don’t operate the way white supremacy and the GOP do. If you want people to overlook you working for your enemy she can always run as a Green Party candidate. Edit: I also call Obama biracial and not black because he doesn’t have 2 black parents nor was his formative years one that virtually no other black person could identify with at all. He has a uniquely biracial experience, regardless of that stupid ass one drop rule (that only seeks to push people into blackness and forces black people to accept folks who don’t even want to be black nor see themselves as black, until they accomplish some shit then it’s “ehhh well it’s probably the non black side that made that incredible thing happen”). Michelle Obama is black. Hell she grew up down the street from my black ass mama. Barack is biracial. This ain’t rocket science folks.

Proably he could reserve just second room for her (and thats it). I dont understand this bashing when both parties knew whats going on.

I don't think I'd want somebody who had rejected me sleeping on the floor of my hotel room all week either. And if that's all that was done, and then she got him banned for life from something he loves over it....well I can understand canceling the ticket too. He's clearly a sleazeball based on those texts, but inviting the girl with the intention of getting laid isn't a crime. He was hardly subtle, either, so she was well aware that's what he was after. Did she not have money on her to get a separate room in case things didn't work out?

All of these social media tools creating drama by sheer virtue of being complete assholes by virtue of the internet allowing them to be complete assholes by sheer virtue of the existance of social media which does nothing more than shine a spotlight on small-minded cunts who would never have a platform if social media didn't exist is making everyone lose their fucking minds. All of this fake outrage on a video game web site is fucking ridiculous. The constant stream of posts to get us riled up about micropenised internet assholes who in real life wouldn't possibly consider pulling half of the shit they pull on the internet because they have no real-life balls is insane. Ban me the fuck out of this insane shit hole. For the record, if you weren't reading... I support the oppressed. Bye bye!

GamingThread Castlevania Lords of Shadow (BC) back for purchase on Xbox Live ($19.99)
Reason User warned: System wars
It’s been available on Steam for several years and is undoubtedly the best version considering the console performance sucks pretty hard. Not trying to troll, but any decent PC will run this better than 12+ year old hardware, or some emulation of that hardware. I had this game on 360 and loved it back in 2010, even with the awful framerate. The PC version at 120FPS was insanely better.

Reason User Banned (1 Month): Dismissing Concerns on Racism; Inflammatory False Equivalences; Derogatory Language
No I disagree. This is a 5 second clip on a much bigger video that was o ly identified by Jared Holt who runs a site called right wign watch who is an alt right watchdog site. If there is any signaling it is Jared virtue signaling by ousting this 5 second clip as bigger than it is. If you reasearch the guy you see tbat he lives for this but no. We cannot question his motives because then we get labeled. We can only question PDP and condemn him over nothing this time around. You empower these ideas by attacking them and making the electronically taboo. No one cared until the guy made a big deal with his tweet. Instead of reaching out and trying to have some civil discourse he did a hit piece. All that was missing from that tweet was a thank you and a *pats himself in the back* Maybe on another video I could see your claims but not for this bs. We'll just have to agree to disagree. You can insult me and label me anything you want if it makes you feel better.I am not giving PDP the benefit of the doubt. I am calling out this whole thing because in this especific case I disagree. It is making something very insignificant big for attention. I say SJW because that is the term that our society has come up for this. Just as some people use Nazis or call everyone alt right when they say something they don't agree with, some are called SJW. And looking at the authir of the tweet it fits. He runs a site called right wing watch if that is mot being a social justice warrior I am not sure. I am sure they've made hit pieces on people that are not even right just because they disagree wotht heir opinions. I have an issue with people today using social media platforms as hit pieces for social credit. The other day some kind was trying to shame Gordon Ramsey for some very public video out some shady stuff he did back in 2010. It was a very public video but he still had to make the "hit piece" for thise likes and follower. This is the kind of outrage I compare this video controversy with.

EtcetEraThread We've Reached Peak Nazi - Jonathan Pie
Reason User banned (3 days): Disingenuous arguing. Ignores Trump's repeated and documented calls for political violence.
I can right now, on this board, call Donald Trump a flaming pile of shit that I can't wait to see out of office so he can be prosecuted and hopefully jailed for all sorts of corrupt bullshit, without fear. His economic policies are aimed at strongarming for the sake of achieving free trade. He's certainly a capitalist with a tinge of protectionism. Fortunately our amazing constitution basically prevents a single party state, so we can forgo that aspect of fascism. He's not a supporter of political violence. The immigration rhetoric certainly has tinges of it, but the actual policies are way more complex to call one thing or another.I'm a market socialist with a degree in political economy (aka marxism), I certainly get the difference between Marx and Stalin. The poster I replied to made claims about fascism to equate nazism, which are similar but different, just like Marxism and Stalinism. That's why I picked Stalinism isntead of Trotskyism ;) I think the direct correlation between alt-right and Neo-Nazis is incredibly nuanced, due to the overuse and overlabeling of both terms. But until I see actual Fascist tenents being proposed as law, it's hard for me to label the guy as such. Trump is a giant piece of shit, but I really don't think he's a Nazi or even a Nazi supporter. I don't really think he's a Fascist either.

People disguises as Balthazar or royal pages from that king in the holiday of Día de Reyes (day of Kings) remembering the catholic tradition of the "three magicain kings" which honored with gifts the newborn Jesus. They do that due lack of black people to perform that role, the same that they use false beards to impersonate Mechior and Gaspar, the other two kings, and the same way that in traditions as moros y cristianos (moor and christians) half of the disguised impersonate moors. Is not a racist thing, you can find racist behaviour in some sectors of soccer stadiums, etc. But this tradition is not one of those cases.

I disagree. If someone solicits sex for money (although people want to argue otherwise...he was a random John, he picked her up in his truck with no prior contact/background knowledge) is it really rape? (I'm definitely getting my search ready to call out any mother fucker that has shown any semblence of being okay with prostitution...because obviously that makes you a rapist). Not knowing her age, does that make him a pedophile (however you want to define it)? She would have long since reached physical maturity and something tells me these guys aren't out carding hookers just to make sure, and that could be said for any encounter similar to this. At the most I would call it a shit situation that shouldn't happen. But anything beyond that would be left to assumption

EtcetEraThread Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says "no question" Trump is a racist in 60 Minutes interview
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Rationalizing and excusing racism
As always, I beg to differ. Trump is no racist, at least not what you would usually call one. He is suffering "Pauperphobia" if there was such a word. He fears and hates the poor, many of them overlapping with people of color (if only in his mind) makes people think he is a racist. Everyone from south of the US border falls in the category of people who are threating his personal wealth and that of the United States. Same goes for shithole countries and countries made of death and sand. He isn't even a good islamophobe, he only hates those muslims who are living in caves in sand and death countries. Muslims from rich countries as Saudi Arabia are perfectly fine and welcome, as anybody from these countries is rich (and so can't be a terrorist, which obviously only based on country of origin). So you tell me he hates people like Kapernick because he is black? Nope, he fears and hates all people who stand up (pun intended) and refuse to be bullied by him. So you say he supports white nationalists scum (and so is one himself)? Nope, he is endorsing them because he must. It is obvious that even his majority in the electoral college is paper thin (probably already gone). If he loses their support he is gone, there isn't even a question about it. I can't prove it, but I am sure he hates most that scum - especially the non wealthy among them - probably as much as any poor hispanic trying to cross the border. He doesn't even care about people entering the US by plane and overstaying their visas. Sure they are wealthy enough if they can afford a plane ticket and not walk thousands of miles needing to be tear-gassed.

Being a writer for some mediocre videogame studio must be the easiest job in the world. Like seriously, seems like half of the job is just coming up with names for cults to have as brainless fodder enemies. How lazy do you even have to be to think you need more brainless fodder enemies in a game that already has zombies in it? How about having a zombie game without bandits or cultists that shoot you on sight but instead other survivors who also want nothing else but to survive? Might even add some character to them and you might even feel bad for shooting them. But I guess that is way too much to expect from a studio that thought "sad biker dude" would be a cool protagonist.

I figured with his interview with ellen this would cause more waves. Not watched the interview yet as not had the time to sit down with it, but seems like people won’t be happy until Kevin falls on his sword I think he is ok to stand his ground at this point. He has apologised to “anyone he hurt” and said he won’t pull tweets, etc. I’m not in the LGBT community so I’m not as affected by his comments, and I definitely won’t try and say how that community should feel regard his tweets and jokes. I just feel there is a stand off right now and forcing him to be an advocate for LGBT community, as Don Lemon mentioned, is unnecessary and forced. He shouldn’t do the Oscars either as it’s just tainted now For what it’s worth I cracked up at that whole gay section of Kevin’s standup (I watched years ago and was surprised he was just getting that work). Reading it sounds a lot more harsh than when it’s being performed and Kevin even mentions about his own insecurities. At this stage, apologise and just keep it moving. No one is benefiting from this

You could say that as many people care about "killer apps" for VR as those that care about something like the cross-play feature, but it was enough for this Corporate Vice President to and then goes on to ignore those under his tweet calling out how Microsoft still forces you to pay to play F2P games on Xbox. That is "listening", I suppose. On to why what Ybarra said was questionable and opportunistic from the start: He says there's no killer app for VR (recommending Google Earth over actual great games providing innovation is as disingenuous as it gets), but only days before he was retweeting deals on Windows headsets because he thinks it's worth people buying. These are the same double standards you can expect from a fanboy, but look at who tweeted out these things.

EtcetEraThread PewDiePie hackers take over smart tvs
Reason User banned (permanent): dismissing racism
First off, thanks for being reasonable. I do believe you are free to see him as a racist or someone with subconscious racist bias or something. I also agree that he should learn becoming more aware of what he is doing. However, I'll try and offer some explanation to this phenomenon: I do not believe he is a racist; I think he has taken this sort of overreaction some people (!) here and in the media provide and basically "absorbed" it into his YouTube persona. Edgy jokes are his motto. I mean, that he very, very often, jokingly says "It's just a joke, it's just a joke" after making... a joke or a racist comment depending on whom you ask, it already shows you how he personally perceives the people going after him. It'a an "us vs. them" mentality that spirals down the more people make unreasonable claims and dismiss other people easily. Who started this? Hard to say and it's not really relevant either. It's the same with politics in general really. In a relationship, when one behaves badly over a period of time, you generally cut them out of your life. You can avoid them. But what do you think happens when you can't avoid them? What if the other party misrepresents a point you made (due to ill intent or misunderstanding)? You become angry. The one feeling wronged will act upon this anger in some way. In politics, you can't just go your own way, that's not how democracy works, so one party will develop a stronger dislike of the other party. This leads to acts that the other party sees as offensive too. They fight back. The circle continues. That's also why there are more and more people choosing to vote for the AfD here in Germany, which is kind of anti-establishment just like Trump is, and they are doing openly fiendish acts. They are also against the refugee politics Germany has been pursuing. Now, you can think of the AfD party however you want; but if you, as an individual, criticize the refugee politics of Germany (even if it's a grey matter to you; you don't think "all refugees should drown" or "let's let them all in while our social system has many people suffering too"), people will group you with the AfD. So people who are being discriminated against or grouped with others just because of a single perspective you have will fight back. They will actually sympathize MORE with the group they were being grouped with BECAUSE they first-hand experience the discrimination they receive, and they WILL be against whatever the discriminating party stands for (here, the "establishment"). I think that's a good part of the reason Trump won, I think that's the reason the AfD is getting popular in Germany. It's a rebel mentality. Society establishes what is okay to think and what is not, and people are not okay with that because they don't feel like they are taken seriously. They fight back. The ones being fought back against (the accepted societal norms and views) don't realize that they views are offensive for other people, so they defend themselves, which just makes things worse. This radicalizes more and more people, on both sides. It's quite apparent in this forum too. You can personally judge PDP or interpret him all you want however you want, but if you take things out of context and attribute wrong-doings of people to him, he WILL feel personally attacked because that's exactly what people here are doing. So he fights back by assuming a defensive stance. In his perspective, well deserved criticism and undeserved criticism or hate will become meaningless, if it comes from the same people. He feeds his content with that defensive stance. People find it funny. Then he makes even more fun of people, which of course, people WILL find offensive too. In all their minds, they did nothing wrong. Neither people here on this forum, as in "I'm just calling a racist out, where is the harm?", nor PewDiePie "I just make edgy jokes and some have gone too far, I agree, and now teachers are saying I stand for GENOCIDE?" think they did something that was inherently wrong or worth judging an entire person for. In the end, both parties reduce the other party to their own view of the other respective parties, without trying to understand where people are coming from and that foundations of world views are DIFFERENT from person to person. That's where the spiral of hate comes from. Now, don't just dismiss what I say just because I said PDP doesn't see himself as a racist or that what he is doing is wrong. You are not doing yourself a favor if you are going to dismiss this in favor of your preconceived notion. You can see this pattern everywhere in the world. From relationships to friendships to politics; everywhere where communication of at least two people is involved, this pattern becomes apparent.

Now i do understand that those things are much worse than this gaming shit, but that isn't the point. The point is that you are using exactly same logic as someone like Trump. Yes there is problem with gaming community and e-sports. There is way too much toxicity, racism, misogyny etc and we need to talk about those problems and try to solve them, but saying every gamer is shitbag or e-sports players are alt-right racists isn't helping anyone and it isn't right way to do this.

GamingThread Is God of War 2018's treatment towards women problematic? (Spoilers)
Reason User banned (1 week): Transphobic joke.
They should release a politically correct version. Every time Kratos says "Boy!" I think Atreus should kindly ask him not to assume his/her gender. In all seriousness, it is a step up for the series IMO compared to the way the series used to treat women. I think though we should consider that the subject matter, Norse and Greek mythology, are probably riddled with sexist things. Just about everyone looks bad or gets killed in this game. The mother is a noble, unifying figure. Freya is a pretty great and complex character. And the Valkyries are the strongest enemies in the game. The industry as a whole needs more non-white protagonists and female protagonists, but GoW isn't really an example to me of women being treated badly or coming off as lesser figures.

Don't buy the dlc if you don't want to, buy just the other 4. And of course, don't buy the fighter pass.Glad that Nintendo disagree with it. Not only as a platform holder but as a publisher.And your motive means jackshit to me and for Nintendo as well. I'm not going to throw a tantrum over this because the piece of shit of Sugiyama is involved because I prefer series with connections with Nintendo and importance for gaming to be on Smash and Dragon Quest totally represents it. Besides, DQ have more than 70 million, is one of the best selling franchises, have plenty of influence on it's genre, the second biggest of SE and many more great points. It doesn't matter if the majority of it are from Japan. Success is success and this is mostly for japanese players getting a rcharacter after years without one dedicated to them.

Reason User banned (1 week): peddling inflammatory conspiracy theories, thread derailing
Sexual harassment is a problem anywhere, in any campaign. And if there is sexual harassment in a campaign from low tier volunteers to organizers, its up to the managers to deal with it, Sanders campaign is no exception, and so if people concerned want assurances that these types of things won't be tolerated in a campaign, interviewers should ask Sanders himself about issues of people in his campaign staff centers and what he plans to do about them. Further, any people accused of treating women with disrespect should be investigated and dealt with appropriately based on the individual case. However, this is the fourth article in less than 2 weeks from NYT trying to head off Sanders in the running with heresay about weak polling, "shedding supporters" and sexism(trying to revive the berniebro myth of his supporters, and then tying it to Sanders personal views on women i guess). while i hear almost crickets from the other candidates in regards to criticism from the media. It reeks of intentional character assassination and a concerted effort. Especially after the open sexism against women Sanders supporters from Clinton supporters like Gloria steinem and Madeline Albright was never even picked up on. I hope this post doesn't get me banned for calling out hypocrisy and what i feel is a concerted attempt by the media to slant views in a biased fashion, but it might. All i can say is that these thoughts are my own, if this is my last post here because i got a MOD or a member mad at it, i want to thank everyone who tolerated my opinionated posts and i'm glad i was able to share them with a forum i respect

I don't think that's their actual view. I think they view modern feminism as reverse discrimination. Basically, just flipping the tables and discriminating in favor of women at the expense of men. For example, if a job opening has two candidates (one male with more training and experience, one female with less training and experience) and even though the male is more qualified for the position, the female is hired because she's female and the business wants more women in the workplace. Is that a realistic scenario? Probably not but it's important to understand actual viewpoints instead of making extreme generalizations. In any case, I think this game has a beautiful aesthetic but it's hard to get excited until they show what it actually plays like.To be fair, the original DX had its fair share of cackling old dudes in towers.

This wasn't meant to be heard on the internet, this was meant for a specific comedy-going audience that knows what they're getting themselves into when they go to a comedy club. Unfortunately, due to Louis' past transgressions, people are recording this material that isn't typically recorded and posting it on the internet for an audience that doesn't understand the method behind it.

If OP doesn’t want to be singled out for being different, the answer is to stop being different. That’s the sad truth. It’s not possible to change everything else. What else could he do? No one in this thread has yet provided an alternative that is feasible. Please don’t mistake my answer with a lack of sympathy.

Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Rationalizing the use of transphobic rhetoric
She’s mentally ill (+ has history of traumatic brain injury) with an online addiction that just furthered her descent into paranoid, xenophobic nonsense. It doesn’t excuse her, but this concept of inherent scumminess is something I see a lot on this board and it strikes me as a shortcut to establish mostly valid opinions without actually considering the humanity behind it. That being said, Louie is being an insecure asshole, and his negative mood is likely exacerbated by outside factors some of which we are aware of and complicit in. It’s the Faustian bargain you sign when you become famous, and we’re seeing what happens when fame becomes a negative for people. This isn’t a Spacey thing, where he brought attention on himself presumably to distract from assault charges, but something Louie does and has done to pay the bills. He’s not trying to make a comeback (unless it comes out that this leak was some backfired PR attempt to court MRAs), he’s just doing cheap, shitty jokes for a couple bucks. He lost $35 million in a day and I’m sure that number just got bigger as 2018 went on. I’m not gonna harangue an angry 50 year old comedian for trying to appeal to other angry 50 year olds. People gotta make rent and Louie isn’t running for political office anytime soon. It sucks for fans of his, but if it can happen to Gallagher, it can happen to anyone.

GamingThread Will developers finally focus on 60fps with next gen?
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Continued hostility and antagonizing other members; previous infractions
Okay since you're apparently that thick and dense let me spell it out for you . Both in terms of techinicity and financially you can't have both , so when a game is slated to be a visual flagship for a platform do expect it to not hit 60 FPS because they chose to go for the pretties. So no games aren't always better off with a higher frame rates it depends on genre , context , whether its multiplat or first party exclusives etc etc etc . And yes targetting 60 FPS as a dev team can be a meaningless and needlessly stressfull endeavour for a project that won't benefit from it. Sorry but Witcher 3 won't be any better than it already is if played at 60 FPS , the story will still be as good the gameplay won't be improved at all , gamers will just experiment a slight imporvement gamefeel wise but really nothing that is truly ground breaking. Targeting 60 FPS is therefore in this case an unreasonable demand plain simple .... Especially given that it's played on screen technologies that are barely able to hit a steady 30 in the first place ...So you don't even have a dog in this race because you already made your choice loud and clear and yet you still feel like dogpiling on everyone . Talk about being a jackass here ... And a troll ...

Reason User Banned (permanent): transphobia
I don't understand why this guy was banned. LCK made a clever joke and then went into dark humor I found a little cringey/groan-inducing. Gender neutral pronouns being silly is not the same as transphobia. I don't get why there needs to be another pronoun. Women and men can be whatever the fuck they want. And in my limited.experience with trans people. They've never invented a pronoun. In Ohio where I am from, I had never met anyone trans. My only exposure to trans people in Ohio was ever only once in awhile seeing a disheveled trans in goodwill or walking on the street. My Mom or dad would call them weirdos. So bad start. In China only along barsreet and only ever prostitutes (called ducks or geese in Chinese can't recall) Later I went to Chicago to be on the judge Mathis show and I matched with a woman on okcipid or tinder and she ended up being an older trans woman. Came to my hotel at the hard Rock. She was attractive in pictures but in person had way too much facial plastic surgery and just wasn't something I like. And I don't personally like peeners. But we hung out and played streets of rage as I had my first gaming laptop (MSi with 7870) and two wired 360 controllers (I went on the show with a friend). Then when I let her know again I still wasn't feeling it. We walked around the gay district. She talked about how it was difficult to find a guy who was okay with being open in a relationship with her. I empathized.even if I didn't relate. Then, later in Ohio I saw one in a starbucks who I had matched with on Tinder once. Not my type. Too masquline. But when I saw her with a guy I didn't think it was gross I thought it was nice. That there is somebody for everyone. I thought that was awesome. Recently moving to San Diego and finally finishing college I met awesome people who are trans. But also trans that I don't mesh with. As with all people. I've never come across a trans wanting to be referred to as them or there or Zim or zer tho. My experience with trans people has grown and developed as they are exactly everywhere and aren't exactly accepted everywhere. But it's easy to see how my experience in the beginning could have lead to a different mindset now. Men and women can be whatever they want. Masquline, androgynous, feminine, furry, gay, bi. It doesn't matter to rational moderate right and moderate leftists (shouldnt matter to anyone honestly). But biology is biology(I think). Men and women are men and women. To invent a new pronoun only furthers the stereotype of what a man or a woman is. I feel. And we are allowed to find each other weird. And if we have the sense of humor. Make jokes. Ck is making a joke about pronouns. I don't think he is connecting it to trans people. Maybe he is. But I don't think the dude banned is either. It's a clever joke. And the last bit is dark humor. Not a fan but hes far from transphobic evil incarnate I think. He makes fun of everyone right? Sorry for the missive.

Reason User warned: Downplaying and being dismissive to issues with poverty
I live in Arkansas, and while I don’t know eevryone’s stories, I will say that I’ve had the pleasure of working with people who will do anything to get out of work. I was a shift supervisor in a plant, and i had a lady quit on me in the middle of a shift because she didn’t like working. She told me “ I’m going to have another kid so I can get back on welfare and food stamps.” I started a new job a few years back, and I worked with one lady for 6 weeks. She went on leave to get a hysterectomy, and never came back to work. She’s still out on disability because she has low iron in her blood and can’t work. Oh, her sister is her doctor, so surprise surprise how she keeps getting notes saying she can’t work. Really, low iron? It’s a desk job. Another lady ate sticks of butter (seriously, she would eat a stick of butter at her desk) so she’d have diabetes complications and get out of work. I’m sure every state has these kinds of employees, but as a taxpayer, it sucks carrying the load of people who can work but choose not to. Trust me, I’d love to sit on my ass all day and play games and get free food, healthcare, and money, but have some respect for yourself and your family.

GamingThread Racist Stereotypes in Smash Bros. Ultimates Spirits Mode
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Dismissing concerns surrounding depictions of harmful stereotypes
its the fastest selling Switch game, and the fastest in the franchise..... but this foolishness is going to drive people to return it in droves? (How else will it affect sales... because we cant be delusional enough to think this will cause people to not buy the game... right???) Are there any other characters with jump kicks and a white and yellow colour alt that could better represent Dee Jay? Same with Sandman, who would be a better fit than DK on the roster For Tac, its pretty clear that they choose that alt because the colours of the shirt and shorts are close to the same colour of the garb that Tac wears... If they use that same villager for Ninji, would that also be "racist"?? This is only "racist" imo if we are looking to be offended

Reason User Banned (1 Week): Inflammatory generalizations and antagonizing other members
I don’t read Gaf, I think like a lot of members here, they moved from Gaf to this site. But yes, this is an echo-chamber and your ignorance of that helps prove my point. Era throws out these accusations and words that are one, not factually correct and two hyperbolic. I see what you’re saying with the irony there, but I believe there’s irony on both sides here. Your comments are also coming across that way. And lastly, it’s not that I’m lacking empathy, maybe I’m not as empathetic as you are but this doesn’t mean I lack it. I understand these points are needed for discussion but just because someone said some comments does not make them alt-right or worthy of a social media storm against them. These actions are just as toxic as the originator. Where is the line here? Hence Era is an echo-chamber that’s on a high horse. Again these are the comments I see a lot on area. If somebody has a differing of opinion from an alt-left opinion (because let’s face it, Era is alt-left) then it’s wrong no matter how you convey it. There’s plenty of instances where you tubers, journalists, game devs have their own opinions and they are completely valid and hurt no one, yet some Era members (and let’s face it quite a lot - atleast when a thread is started) like to shit on them... There’s damage being done on both sides here.

They could be racists or even racially profile using incorrectly biased stereotypes but I don't know this at all based on other officers from far away that may have done the same previously.Wait so my first line dismisses my other two arguments? Your are referring to this, no?I asked a question to the poster asking why should I be racist not anyone else. I gave three points and i agree that the first one was weak. it doesn't discount the rest. and my argument stems from the fact that there are minorities here taking part in racial division, that's why i am arguing in the first place.

Instead of saying he didn't think it would work he had to go for personal attacks instead. Musk shouldn't have responded to begin with and been above responding to attacks like that, but he did. Not sure how you can say it "accurately described what Musk was doing was a stupid PR stunt trying to insert himself into a story and was called out for it.", but hey, I'm not a cynic like you seem to be.

Well the end result is percieved racism. The notion that “black people are monkeys” lives inside us as an American culture which is inherently wrong. The Japanese culture, where the game is made mind you, doesn’t have such appalling notions. So is that a Smash Bros issue or an American/ Western Society issue? Maybe we should be pushing for the connotation of monkeys being compared to African Americans as an INSULT to be stopped instead of making excuses for it by saying the video game is the problem.

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Trolling, history of severe infractions. Account in junior phase.
Wow, a 5 day ban for saying I don't believe all Brexit voters are racists. Says a lot for the "debate," available at this place. Here's the issues at play: You can believe in immigration and its benefits for the economy but not free movement. That is a perfectly reasonable political position and not racist in the slightest. I do think that free movement forces harsh discrimination against non EU immigrants but that's another debate. The only reason for goods to be blocked at the borders immediately after leaving is a political one and for propoganda. On the day of a hard Brexit, if it ever happens all involved will have perfect regulatory alignment still so no need for additional checks until that changes on either side. We already check for "smugglers," so no worries there. We're already seeing this being suggested with both sides agreeing to maintain the status quo on various issues. Border requirements can be negotiated once regulations begin to diverge to the point they may be needed. Still, bolstering border forces is sensible from this point. Forecasting economic output in any country is as difficult as forecasting the weather particularly over the long term due to the sheer amount of variables, it's even harder when you have variables that are new and unpredictable and depend on politics that haven't happened yet. Its not unusual for economic figures to be adjusted from one quarter to the next because something unforseen happened. I certainly don't think we'll see the fiscal extremes being forecasted by both sides. There's been numerous cases in history where politicians told a country something "had," to happen or fiscal ruin would occur only for the opposite to happen. The UK joining the Euro for instance or Gordon Brown banging the dispatch box waving a fiscal report shouting "no more boom and bust," just before the biggest bust in a generation. If that makes me a troll here, so be it. Damn.
