GamingThread I hope Rockstar allows us to play as a female protagonist in GTAVI.
Reason User banned (2 weeks): Sexist rhetoric.
Nothing wrong with having a female character you can opt to play, but force one down players throats as the sole playable protagonist in a franchise (just to please a certain audience)... you‘re going to cause a riot. Look at what happened with BFV when their lead guy went on a political correctness rampage alienating a huge part of their playerbase in the process. I, for one, have no interest in playing a female character in a game, so a single female protagonist in a GTA title would be a deal breaker for me. And yes, I didn‘t play Horizon and am not interested in playing the new TLOU2 (no, I don‘t care about the marketing or lesbian angle that has people up in arms, I simply don‘t want to play as Ellie in general). More power to the people who want to play female protags though. Disclaimer: I am a white male so this post is probably getting me banned

Reading the OP, all I got was that he's a ... Well, typical male gamer: he takes part in platform war, and is anti-Sony(which is apparently super bad?), he does stupid shit for views, and he says horrible things about women... Which is just your typical gamer. I'm assuming that "misinformation" is regarding him making up shit to smear Sony? Reading the thread though, it seems he's a vocal supporter of the Spanish alt-right? Like, shouldn't that be in the OP instead of him being anti-Sony? Also, since I don't speak Spanish, is there something else about him that we should know? Because the hate against him seems to be in unison here, but I honestly can't give two craps about a Sony hater, the alt-right support thing is bad obviously, but I feel like the guy must have done some boogie's "we should meet in the middle with NAZI!" to warrant such reaction...

But she is right. Just like any actor/actress they should be cast onto the role due to their performance and not because they filled a specific social criteria. People have been outraged that Ariel is being played by a black actress or that Motoko was played by a white actress, despite characters only living in the realm of fiction. I, for one, would prefer the casting of an actor/actress for a particular role to be done solely based on their performance for the role and not be judge constantly because of they don't have a certain feature or attribute or relatability to the source material, especially if it's from a work of fiction.

GamingThread Gears 5 will not feature any depictions of smoking and the series will not highlight or glorify smoking moving forward
Reason User Warned: Inappropriate Commentary
Not really. Even from his replies this seems really a convenient time to drum up marketing support. As I said almost nobody cares if there is smoking in this game. Nobody is going to light a pack of cigs or cigars up because of Gears of War did it. The idea that Gears of War is somehow contributing to smoking is ridiculous. His idea that a game is escape fantasy filled with extreme violence does actually seem like a convenient excuse to model his game on standards for one issue but to let another issue go by because obviously he wouldn't have much of a game without it. So he can't stop violence why try? He can't stop smoking either so why try? IDK. I don't have all the answers. What he is doing is fine even if it is for marketing. It's his deal. That's the main point here. He can do what he wants. I don't see an issue with it. Vape and nicotine are bigger than tobacco will ever be at this point, and tobacco is not getting bigger it's getting a LOT less popular in a lot of places. Yes, some countries have a some problems with tobacco, but it has nearly nothing to do with videogames. Asian countries have major issues with smoking due to peer pressure and because they haven't had the time to see exactly what it does to the body after many years en masse. Rod's replies seem somewhat generic and random to me outside of the personal people in his life that were affected. I get that somebody he knows died of lung cancer. My grandfather died of lung cancer. Has nothing to do with anything for me anyway, and I certainly wouldn't be trying to make this some huge issue if it weren't for marketing of my game. I for one don't mind people smoking in media as long as they aren't hawking it on people. It's not a big deal to me. Teach your children about media. That being said I don't care what he does. If this is what he wants so be it.

I have to say though, this new assertion that Ubisoft are "easing people in to the new model" thing is kind of funny. If that's the case then that is a hell of a long con. They've been "easing" players in for the past 7 odd years and however many games its been that i honestly can't be bothered to sit there and count, but it's been a good few now. But now! NOW they strike and show their true greedy scumbag colours! In the most unexpected way possible that no one saw coming: By releasing some free DLC to a game in the latter end of it's life cycle that has gotten all the unreasonable people throwing a massive tantrum. 7 odd years of careful planning and "easing" led to this.

GamingThread Pokemon Sword and Shield New Japanese Trailer [read staff post]
Reason User warned: Hostility towards other members.
I feel some people bandwagon on to hate parades and shit gets old. Start a new thread if you just want to talk about your gripes with the development etc. As someone who has never transferred pokemon to different games (played all of them since the beginning) the constant bitching and moaning is so damn old. Some people do not care about limits on older pokemon, hell i think its kinda dope to limit them. Kinda like how Black/White were my favorite pokemon games since it limited the pokemon thru the main story to only new ones. I'm stoked to explore a new region, meet new characters, and see new pokemon. It has everything I want out of a new pokemon game and yet this opinion is "wrong" and "controversial" to some and its like calm down.

You can only ignore 1000 people (I'm sure about half of my ignore list is made up of Pokemon fans) and it's hard to follow a thread when you have so many people on ignore which means you have to hit "show ignored content' to actually follow the thread.Almost in every Pokemon thread mods have had to lay out guidelines for discussion because of threads getting derailed/hostile.There was a thread specifically where I know a lot of the unhappy people hung out in to complain about Game Freak. I think it was the thread about Masuda issuing a nothing statement on the whole national dex thing. It seems that thread died out or something, I don't know because I tried to stay away from it.Good, seeing as Rockstar made their staff work stupid hours, I'm glad it got acclaim. I just said that I personally thought it sucked, nothing wrong with having an opinion right?

EtcetEraThread Pelosi to Progressive Colleagues: Stop attacking centrists on Twitter
Red Text Enough. If we're done talking about Pelosi vs. the caucus, and just want to use the thread to decide whether other Era members are progressive or not, we can close this thread. Let's move on, thank you.
As for the House Democrats, the infighting is going to continue. People were voted in in 2017 and 2018 to make a difference, and they clearly are starting to. Still, there are divisions and conflicts among progressives, some discriminatory. Forming a coalition that will successfully defeat Trump will not be easy to do. Even less easy, getting a bunch of different caucuses to decide to show up to vote in sufficient numbers to vote for whomever-the-nominee-is. People clearly are not as united on even the "kitchen table" issues, that Pelosi was somehow counting on. Well, it's gonna take the candidates' focus off of Trump, for sure, but their involvement may help resolve the situation sooner and better than what is currently happening.

Dont you find it sad that you dont have the means to even heal on your own terms? You became too dependent on her (a sick woman who could have had a turn for the worst at any moment) and relied on her. What if she couldn't provide...what could you have done? You aren't sad/jealous because things have changed. You sound angry that your gravy train is now in dire jeopardy and you are going to be forced into an adult situation fast. You are forced to be an adult soon. None of this non-traditional bollocks excuse. You didnt grow as an individual, you became complacent doing the bare minimum of being a dad to slide through life as your wife took the brunt of everything hard like being a spouse parent AND provide (you could have done all that and still had an identity or job or means of production). Your posts here is looking for validation and pity. And I'm gonna tell you the hard truth .... Harden the fuck up. Harden the fuck up and stop thinking about how much you owe your wife and all the sacrifices she made. Your sacrifices aren't as deep as hers. And as much as you are cognizant of that fact and aware and grateful, that shit ain't gonna put a roof on your head. Right now your time is short because their patience is limited. All it takes is you taking a stinky dump In the toilet, a kid making a mess on the floor, or the TV being 1 decibel too loud before they start thinking there's too many people In the home. Talk to your mom about letting your work/stay with her for a bit. All this shit happening and you writing is your PRIDE talking. The wrong pride. Not the pride that let you let your wife fuck an old flame because you didnt have the merit or argument against it, but the one where you still think living it up as a live in butler is better than having your autonomy back. Harden the fuck up. I'm done.

Like, even the title of the article - my date with Ansari was “the worst night of my life” - really?

What's funny is how many shows this could describe: Master of None Girls Mozart in the Jungle Anyways, I'll try to catch the special this weekend. I enjoy Aziz's comedy so I'm sure I'll dig it. I don't think anything he did constitutes a sex crime so much as being clueless about how consent works until he gets hit over the head with a frying pan, so I've no interest in taking him to task there. (Honestly, I don't see how anyone can as that whole event was essentially 'he said/she said' but to each their own.) So hopefully it's good, and at least he seems to be acknowledging that he needs to grow as a person. Too bad Louis CK hasn't done that-- might not be the MRA/incel poster boy right now if he had.

What other kind of response did you want? I mean...he could've lost his entire career because of a hackjob from Babe.net and had intimate details of his sex life leaked to the public without his consent. If you look at the chronology of the events: - Aziz + Girl have a date --> Girl felt uncomfortable during the date & seemingly Aziz was unaware but backed off after she gave explicit verbal cues about wanting to leave - Girl texts Aziz and he apologies the next day - 1.5 years later, girl decides to share said story on babe.net, keeping her identity private, getting paid but exposing intimate details about his sex life that all his friends and family can read - babe.net doesn't even bother to capture his account or POV - 1.5 years later, there is still segment of people associating Aziz with actual predators like Louis CK I mean, he could of understandably gone the other way and been really angry about the whole situation. He took a balanced approach, found some leanings (be more aware and vigilant of non-verbal cues) and incorporated the reflection into his material.Eh....People playing this off as some Louise CK shit is micharacterising the situation. Based on her account, it seem like he was 'pushy'. Sure. But we only read her perspective. For all intents and purposes, Aziz based on his account, didn't necessarily pick up on her cues. Can I or anyone else call bullshit on that? Not really, wasn't there. Is this behaviour worth reflection. Ofcourse. But let's not bullshit and call this sexual assault.

Idiot leftists is right.This is such bullshit. I was sad that there was nothing to be done to help you in this political climate, either by current leadership or President Bernie, and that I wished more could be done. But anything to score some points for character assassination, because that's all that counts, right? Nope, my long game is the presidency and congress - its the left who are riding too much in the presidency, despite my repeated warnings not too. It's telling that you have to make up lies about me because the truth is too inconvenient for your narrative.

Every time I see someone support the movie, one of the key elements is "it subverts expectations!" Those scenes with Kylo and Rey in the trailer that more or less implied they'd join forces?

Now, a president who is a white supremacist who is on video admitting to sexual assault? Let's elect him president, what could go wrong? Acting like a tyrant who subverts the constitution at every expectation? Surprise! One group hates him for that...the other worships him for it and pissing off the former. Would you like me to quote one of the users who likes TLJ because it "makes the haters salty"? Especially for defending a Star Wars movie that is highly divisive? Say what you will about it doing comercially well, it's Star Wars, it would be stupid to say it wouldn't make money.Some of the criticisms were sexist and bullshit. Rose's actress being sexually harassed on Twitter was absolutely not cool. Critically speaking, however, Rose's character sucked.

I'm with you OP! PC gaming it's B tier. And it always be. It has better graphics and that's it. It doesn't have all the support from companies, it doesn't have any real good exclusive (or at least a good mainstream exclusive), and the "free online" at least for me it's a dumb argument since I can play online on console for just $5 a month, like buying a coffee. Just let PC gamers think that they market it's relevant. We all know that's not true. Just imagine a world without PC gaming... Yeah, no one cares.

GamingThread Why women criticise sexualised character designs |OT2| I have no pants and I must scream (READ OP)
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Rationalizing Sexism; Account in Junior Phase
I'm not reading through 200 pages of replies to see if this has been mentioned already, but at least I know none of what I am about to say is on the list of shitty counter-arguments. 1. Developers aren't "desperate for boobs," their job is to make a product that aligns with a specific creative design (to satisfy the guys that came up with it), make a game that will sell (to satisfy the publisher / investors), make it appealing and fun to play for the sector of the market the product is targeted at. Developers that can do all three make lots of games and have repeat successes. If you ask ANY developer who isn't wholly self-funded and has no obligations to anyone except their own creative vision whether they would rather sell to a majority of potential customers or a minority, you're going to get the same answer every time. That's why a great number of indie titles don't have this problem. Unemployment and potential poverty make excellent motivators. Personally, I'm utterly disgusted with how my employer does a great many things, but those things are done through me because it keeps my family comfortable. 2. If you want women to be treated like people, that's fine...encouraged, even. One of the things about video games that make them fun to play is the fact that none of the elements are treated like real people. In the body of your post, you want women to be treated like real people, but in the shitty counter-arguments you say that the women in the games have no agency and aren't real. The conviction someone has to buy a game because of trashbag bikinis is far greater than the desire to impose that same dress code on real women. Are there exceptions to this rule? Of course, very few. Those people aren't rational, decent human beings and wanting all of the women in the world to do what they want "just because" is less a sign of sexism but more a sign of serious mental illness. That illness manifests as sexist behavior in this instance, of course, and likely other awful behaviors (cruelty to animals, overall lack of empathy, etc). 3. "do you really want to objectify women that badly?" This is a bad talking point. 4. "Quiet breathing through her skin" this is also invalid. Quiet's presence on Motherbase is a problem for many reasons. First, none of the men trust her. Secondly, she's a woman set in a game that has already made it clear that it doesn't shy away from the topic of rape (see Ground Zeros). What's true for Ground Zeros is true for Phantom Pain. A woman in a predominantly male populated, isolated environment, where those men are combat trained is a dangerous place to be. Big Boss and Ocelot know this, which is why Ocelot mentioned that she . She can't refuse to wear clothes unless she was first offered them. Not only were they offered, the person who offered them was hospitalized. Quiet is also kept in a cage on the Medical Platform. This isn't to keep Quiet imprisoned, because her abilities allow her to come and go as she pleases. The cage is to keep her safe from being attacked by the men on Motherbase. While disciplined to the point of fanaticism, Diamond Dogs are still human, thus prone to human failure. Why am I going on about this since it's just some pixels and has no agency? That's an excellent question, since this is a second contradiction in the original post. But because you chose Quiet, I felt the explanation was needed. You also mentioned that a sports bra + shorts would be practical, when there's nothing practical about being in combat wearing shorts and a sports bra. Is there anything practical about what Quiet wear? No, but don't say that a sports bra and shorts is somehow practical. 5. I can remember a time when Final Fantasy games were "made for dudes" and the women in them were just "eye candy." That was back when they were sold in cartridge format, and if they didn't work, you blew into them. Yes, it's been that long. 6. This is actually quite hilarious and whoever said this is so utterly off the mark that it's not worth considering as a rebuttal. I feel like much of the anger you feel over this is because you're faced with such a large number of bad responses to your otherwise legitimate concern, and those are the ones you're choosing to base your response on rather than a larger picture. If games had a problem with sexualizing females, it's not a problem with games. Remember, their targets are consumers who want their products made certain way. It's the same as toys for kids, fashion magazines, sports drinks, fast food, cars, antidepressants, breakfast cereals, penis enlargement pills, shoes...literally everything you can market will be marketed outside it's practical use and made to invoke an emotional response because that's why people spend money on things they don't need. TL:DR, Take your hate out on consumers because they're the reason things are shitty, that goes for more than just video games. It goes for most everything wrong with life.

Not neccesarily defending this game or some things they joke about, just stating that it's a kind of humor and memes that are pretty common between everyone here in Spain, so the fact that this game exists doesn''t surprise me.

I dont care if it's the police or military (both institutions o hate and fear). We have no right to generalize PEOPLE on any level. I am afraid we will eventually reach a tipping point in this current society, and the eventuality isnt too far off. We should all know better at this point than to think we know who everyone in a group is or what they think and feel. It's just as prejudiced as racism. Its assuming you know something about someone personally because of something superficial about them and it's disgusting, no matter who does it.

Shouldn't demonize someone for something they might not have even done, or if he did do it, he did so without malice, and through ignorance.

tbh the whole thread is very interesting. Most users here are obviously ready to seperate the product from the developer. But on the other hand the opinions from the Kingdom Come Deliverance developer could not be seperated from the product. So if a developer is just an asshole to everyone it's okay - the product is still good. But if he has political opinions which are at least controversial it's not okay? That's the line crossed? Obviously personal choice and everyone sets the "not further" sign at another position. I'm pretty simple to this things: I don't care for the developer, I care for the product.

Pokémon Let’s Go is clearly designed to cater to people very familiar to Pokémon Go and was designed to have a very simplified and streamline experience, compared to a typical Pokémon game (not that a typical Pokémon game is complicated). There is no precedent that Gamefreak is looking to dumb the game down so much it’s just a couple of options. The amount of overreaction in this thread (and many threads it seems) is ridiculous. Gamefreak is lazy, they should be doing more with the franchise, but not including all the Pokémon isn’t the end of the world when there are so many of them.

I appreciate you citing actual case law in my response, which is better than a lot of folks here, so thank you! There are two things I think the judge needs to consider based on the standard you cite - one: The accusations themselves, obviously. But is it not also worth considering that those accusations were never adjudicated? None of them were. I have to believe both need to be considered, because I would think both of these things contribute to the concern of the community or general news interest. Coming forward with accusations of sexual assault is a serious matter, and that absolutely is of concern to the public. But outing folks as sexual predators doesn't change the fact that their records remain clean unless a governmental body finds a way to pursue charges with that information in hand, and that has not happened here for any number of reasons. Should that not also be considered by the public? That's the wrinkle in why I'm not convinced this is a slam dunk--I'm saying BOTH the accusations and his clean record are of value and concern.

Kamala, like Obama before her, is not an African American. She came from a privileged background, raised by two wealthy parents, one of whom is "Jamaican." (an ethnicity, not a race; her "Jamaican" father is not entirely black, either). Likening the accusations of appropriation made by ADOS to the "birtherism" smears against Obama is a disingenuous framing of a legitimate concern we - ADOS - have with her. Birtherism was rooted in a racist appeal to white America, painting Obama as an intruder whose Presidency was illegitimate because he was not "American" (read: white). ADOS' criticism of Kamala includes a scrutiny of her record as a DA, focusing on her unmistakable indifference to a number of inequities that predominantly poor black people suffered from in their interactions with the California justice system. She launched her campaign at Howard (an HBCU) and goes on The Breakfast Club to tout her bonafides as an "African American," but her actions throughout her career do not reflect a woman who has any kinship with black ADOS.

Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): History of bad faith attacks on staff
What a surprise! Another example of the incompetent moderation of this website. Asides from that, I have to agree with the OP: whether or not you're happy with the decision regarding the National Dex, the amount of vitriol I've seen on this website and online (Twitter, etc.) really goes to show how little of an understanding people have with game development, and how much effort goes into the games they make. Whether or not you're happy with the final project, in most cases (except shovelware, really), a ton of work and effort goes into games (across multiple teams and groups of people) that people neglect to appreciate because "muh Pokemon are gone". Would I like every Pokemon to be in Sword/Shield? Of course. But would it stop me buying the game? No, because I understand the immense effort that would be needed to maintain such a large and diverse cast of Pokemon and how it'd be unrealistic in 20/30 years time for every Pokemon to be compatible with each new installment. Equally though, I accept that the team could reasonably pull this off if they hired lots of new people (contractors, for instance - with the sole job of updating Pokemon for the game and adding their moves/animations/other data) and delayed the game, given that Pokemon is the world's largest IP (by revenue) - it wouldn't be a money problem. So it's a tough situation, because there are both sides to the argument. The issue is that both sides (for the most part) are failing to at least countenance the other sides' argument. And of course, this leads to the harassment of people online. As per usual. It's such a shame, because it's ruining the buildup to what should otherwise be a pretty fine game, even if I'm personally not buying it (I'm not into Pokemon).

We've really come full circle. Pokemon fans have went from the RPG version of CoD bros- willing to lap up anything GameFreak shits out so long as Pokemons logo is slapped on it and demanding every outlet give the game no less than a 8/10. Now, NOW they announce a $60 game cutting half the rooster for 'quality' reasons that people have largely called horseshit, especially given GameFreaks history of doing the bare fucking minimum and still getting millions of sales and all of a sudden we are a toxic community. I'm tired of this garbage. If EA/Ubisoft/Activision pulled this shit we would be taking a hot shit all over the company and salivating for the next fucking Jim Sterling video on Monday to put them on blast for another damn week. But oh no- Masuda had to make a statement. They worked so hard guys! Fucking tough shit. There is ENTITLED and there is rightfully criticizing a product that they expect us to pay $60 for. We are looking at a mainline Pokemon game that will have less content than the 3DS games for no good reason. The whole part of Pokemon is THE POKEMON. Fuck me if I had the gall to assume that before they did literally anything else in the production of a Pokemon game they would make sure ALL the Pokemon would be in it. Now the discourse is being swarmed by Let's Go: Legpee and hyper casual Pokemon players pulling shit out of their ass or intentionally obfuscating the reality of the 'NationalDex' outrage so they can boast about how they are the 'good fans' because they only play Pokemon for the 25hr amusement park story and drop the game shortly after. Meanwhile everyone else who dumps over 300+ hours doing some variation of post game content that REQUIRES all the Pokemon being compatible with the games to get maximum enjoyment out of it are nothing more than entitled goons despite the fact that not even 3 weeks ago these same players were defending everything about SwSh in the dumpster fire reveal trailer thread on ResetERA and beyond. Y'all are free to be the corporate defense force for the multi-billion dollar media behemoth. I'm sure James Turner himself will personally bless you with a review copy for your valiant efforts of downplaying- for the first time- a serious removal of a staple feature in the Pokemon franchise.

You’ve said it yourself. USA generally finishes at the top of the table at the Olympics meaning it’s got medalist in more sports than the majority of other developed countries. Tennis? Golf? Snow/skateboarding? Skiing? Even sports where the US doesn’t have much a history, like rugby, they are getting increasingly better.

So, if you’re not insane, you’re a liar. Pick one, but don’t act like you know what you’re talking about, my dude.

GamingThread Nintendo doesn't plan on censoring video games, will only rely on 3rd-party rating boards
Reason User Banned (1 Month): Rationalizing the Sexualized Depictions of Minors
This has been the biggest problem about Sony's policy, though. The fact that they told devs to not admit there was a censorship policy was practically draconian.Don't. Buy. Them. Vote with your wallet. If people want to buy them regardless of the stigma attached to it as you say, then clearly there's enough money in it to keep going as long as these games have been made. It is ABSURD to have somebody over the ratings board say otherwise and there's not a single excuse for it. Also, considering we're talking about an UNDEFINED AMBIGUOUS CENSORSHIP POLICY, I would think that's up for scrutiny until foundations are set. And no, "Think of the children" is not a fucking justification. Lay out the guidelines, drop the stupid mandatory English communication between devs and Sony California, and stop telling devs that they can't say their games were censored. That shit is not okay.

The event leading up to the sigh showed elitist attitude from op. If some Americans go out of their shell and experience other culture, they would understand what real humility and gratitude is. I have seen much worse reaction from employee who are being looked down upon by a customer who thinks they are better than them.The days of slavery is long gone. Did op wanted the employee to say “yessa massa I gon be a gud n*** for you and get that bread how ya like it sir.” The employee is already being submissive to op demands and you can’t expect someone to not sigh after redoing a work. That is natural human reaction. The employee listen and did everything the customer asked. “Everything.” But just because of a sigh, op walked out. If that is not being a douche than society has lost the meaning of being empathetic.

The world largely recognizes its sins of the past and is trying to make progress. Not sure nitpicking every attempt to be inclusive is the right approach. If a single cartoonish karate game keeps someone in the closet, they could probably stand to expand and diversy what they're taking influence from.

lol, look, she's the one that created that environment and when people joked back she got offended? I mean just look at her apology. She says she tells them she's horny all the time and call them bulls because they have horns. She also said something about "riding chat" or posted a picture of her riding a bull saying the bull was chat, forget. So what do you expect? People joking back saying that they're the bull and she can ride anytime, in which she implied in her joke. I don't see why she would then be offended and lash out like that. This is why that Etika thing happened. I don't like your opinion, ban. I don't like your opinion, ban. Wasn't that one of the things wrong with GAF back then? I mean before that incident.

EtcetEraThread The Verge: San Francisco to ban ecig sales without FDA approved in 2020
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Hostility towards another member, previous related infractions
lol FDA approval means nothing. It's a scam. You know the FDA doesn't really test anything themselves, right? All they do is review test data and prodcedures from the manufacturer's testing of their own products. Most of which cause all kinds of serious issues and side effects be it food, drugs or any other type of product. The FDA has been caught numerous times sitting on all kinds of data, particularly in concern with drug products, that could call into question the safety of a product. There have been numerous drugs that they've refused to take off the market after thousands of deaths being linked to them. They re-approved Avandia, a diabetes medication a family member of mine was on, after it was linked to thousands upon thousands of deaths and have been caught in many more similar scandals. They have approved all kinds of substances in foods other 1st world countries have made illegal. Like certain growth hormones in dairy and the use of fucking flame retardant in food products to name a few. You'd be shocked with how many items that you stuff your face with include pointless ingredients like food coloring that have been linked to cancer and other serious health concerns. Hell, the FDA approves cigarettes for crying out loud lol The FDA is not looking out for you. It's about making money and trying to minimize risk as much as possible for their benefit. Why do you take so much stock in what they have to say? And I'll double down on the insults. It doesn't matter if my vices are unhealthy or not. I don't need you to pretend to be some morally superior figure and tell me what I should and shouldn't do. I don't care about your misinformation, advice, religion or whatever else you think is your duty to shove on other people who are doing mundane shit that you don't agree with. People like you are the problem with this world. Unfortunately I don't see the FDA removing you from the market anytime soon. Your annoyance level alone has to result in increased stress, cardiovascular disease and depression for the people that are unfortunate enough to be around you.

This thread is literally about how limited the Galar Pokedex is. That's not positive. That's negative. Go spread your 'positivity' in another Pokemon thread. Serebii is basically the John Gruber/DaringFireball of Pokemon. It''s fucking baffling how anyone that tries to argue with him gets banned (Seriously the first ban I've gotten on ResetEra/NeoGaf since I joined in 2008) but he gets off scott free because he's curbing 'misinformation' and spreading 'positivity'? We can't have a bitching thread about how shitty this decision is? We can't just be angry about this? Imagine if Serebii were a Trump supporter instead, going into political threads to look at 'the positives' of it. This forum is a joke with its biases and trigger happy mods. They got pantsed during the Jussie Smollett thread. That mod got embarrassed and demodded in the Etika thread. But fuck, let's just keep banning people who might actually just be extremely passionate and firey about this decision right? This decision sucks. I'm gonna keep bitching about it.

I never said the Syrian uprising was started by the worst groups in the region. I'm simply saying that the Obama Administration with Hillary at the helm of the State Dept. didn't want the U.S. to get directly involved in the civil war so they supplied every crazy jihadist group in the region with military supplies in the hopes that they'd be able to topple Assad's regime much like what happened to Gaddafi in Libya (which is now run by crazy jihadists). But with Assad's regime able to beat back the rebels (some good but most bad, Assad's regime never butchered Christians in the country like what many of the rebel groups have been doing the past several years), most candidates would be ordering strikes on Damascus right now and we'd have Libya all over again. Btw, there's no proof that Assad's regime used chemical weapons. Do you still think Iraq had weapons of mass destruction?

I used to condemn MJ when the documentary came out but know I just stay neutral. There are eye-raising inconsistencies on both stories but I tend to side MJ a tiny bit and the reason is the following: as someone who has gone through his fair share of fucked-up stories on similar topics, I know how INCREDIBLY hard is to speak about that kind of stuff, to any one, single person. let alone put it there for the world to see. So I feel zero empathy when a guy says "MJ loved when I'd spread my butt cheeks" only to be interrupted by the director saying "CUT!! we have to fix the lights, please repeat that line and remember to look afflicted and please shake your hand, that creates drama" are they lying? I don't care either way but I wish they get whatever justice they deserve, if they do. That being said, the docu rubs me the wrong way and made me roll my eyes to the moon and back. as for MJ, he was, at the very least, a complete asshole.

Maybe it's just time to stop posting, don't you think ? One of those situations led to someone death and many members seems to have contributed, even by just casting small stones. Things add up. I don't think it's the right time to make shitty comparisons to further some weird agendas. Yes, by the way, if you absolutely want to make comparison, I think people shitting on someone with mental health issues that led to his death and the Resetera moderation doing nothing about it, is way worse than what happened on Neogaf.Not my leader, that's for certain, regardless of the past responsibilities.

As you get older in life you really do start to understand that words....well are just words. Without any intent they hold no power. Problem we have on here is that everything has to be Black and White. People are too desperate to be seen as progressive and want to wear that shit like a brownie badge. Etika isn't defined by an outburst. You can be critical of said outburst but at the same time if you really are progressive, really have empathy then try and understand the ''WHY''. A young man has felt the need to take his own life because he could see no other way out, that needs to be the real story here.

I might be able to give some insight into this. This is a cynical view but most likely realistic. It all comes down to money. According to (not completely accurate but gives a good estimate) era is getting around 17 million hits per month. When it comes to ad revenue, that amount of traffic can be very lucrative. I'm going to be extremely vague here but I know for a fact another gaming related website that gets around 3 million hits per month is making around $20,000 per month just on ads. If there is any sort of event that causes a mass exodus from era, the owner will lose a ton of money. I guess this is worth a permaban :/

Reason User Banned (2 Week): Continued pattern of hostility towards other members over platforms and services; muliple related infractions
The post from the Netflix tech team does not contradict my post. The problem is that you believe things are one way, but they are the other way. Netflix delivers an H264/H265 product. Netflix does not deny this. Netflix uses viewership data from each region to determine which shows to serve up as fully (all quality levels available) encoded in advance, which to serve up as partially (only certain quality levels) encoded in advance, which to encode on the fly. Netflix does not deny this, and I do not deny this. My post earlier covers this in depth. As I have already stated, my earlier posts do not present me as an expert. You are reading into my posts and assigning words and roles that I do not claim. I never claimed, for instance, that Netflix and Stadia will achieve the exact same compression ratios. They will use similar levels of bandwidth for a similar level of quality and frames delivered - 60 frames at 20mbps from Netflix will be similar to 60 frames at 20mbps from Stadia. Again, stop assigning beliefs and statements to me that I never made and don't necessarily believe. Stick to the actual words of my posts, presented in context. Since there is no substantive disagreement between what you cite and what I post, I don't think we have anything else to talk about.

well there's way more then 4 PS exclusives i'm interested in so I have zero regrets for buying my PS4. I think we know the real truth behind that-those people weren't REALLY concerned, they were just Sony fanboys looking for any excuse to hate on MS. If Sony had done a similar service(which they were in fact planning on doing before they saw the backlash to MS's announcement)you bet your ass fanboys would've been licking Sony's feet as opposed to criticizing them. Not anti-Sony BTW before anyone accuses me of that, Days Gone is easily in my top 10 games of this year, but I do get oh so tired of Sony ponies that just look for excuses to hate on MS no matter what.Wrong we did in fact used to own games, not sure how you can argue otherwise. I never got into VR myself, too high-priced for me to justify it and none of the games look very interesting. Say what you will about the Kinect, but games like Heavy Armor and Rise of Nightmares are full fledged games and feel like it, crap like The Inpatient looks barely any better then the dime-a-dozen horror games released on Steam every single day. Plus with VR if you are playing on PC you also do need a top-of-the-line gaming rig to run it properly, and only the 1% can really afford it, so VR is never going to become a mainstream success, at least not in terms of gaming.Publishers WANT streaming to be the standard though and they'll do everything they can to force people into using them(wouldn't be surprised if they started putting content behind the paywall of their streaming service, we already saw games like Kingdoms of Amalur put single-player content behind online-passes, so it's not at all stretch to assume we'll see something like that again). It's not "convenience" at all if you can't play a game because of bad internet, it's the opposite actually. Yes a game I own a physical copy of is 100% mine, it's not just me saying that, it's countries like the UK with laws like the "Sale of Physical Goods Act" which says you own thing you pay for. You sure sound like you work for Google. I doubt people will "get over" it when they literally can't use the service because of poor internet(which isn't going to change anytime soon in the U.S. thanks to companies having virtual monopolies across certain areas in the U.S.) You actually think ISPs give a shit about you? LOL they really don't.Nah you're the one making crap up here, you have zero evidence that companies actually give a shit about pleasing consumers. You sure sound an awful lot like a PR rep for these companies the way you are shilling them. Uh companies lie all the time, are you seriously not grasping that? Ubisoft lies all the time, about their games not being political about their DRM for PC games actually working and stopping piracy, etc. You really do just blindly believe everything corporations tell you don't you? I'm guessing you also believe Amazon treats their workers well right? You're the one trying to "bully" people here into swallowing this nonsense about how streaming services are a better deal, no they aren't, that's not an opinion that's a fact. You want to bully anyone who does not blindly agree with every single thing you say. You're the one with "blind hatred" here towards anyone that does not blindly asskiss corporations. Like Jim i'm highly skeptical for this for very good reasons, the games industry is so shitty it's a safe bet to assume this will be shit.

Wow. People getting banned for taking offense by a generalization. Generalization being repeated by members of whom aren't getting banned... Only on resetera. P.S. You can be discriminated on without being oppressed. Dont believe me? Use a dictionary. Cant beleive this hive mind sometimes. Nothing is ever objectively thought thru lmao.

Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Inflammatory Thread Derailment Surrounding Sexism
I don't mind that she was upset and said that, especially since she clarified and even apologized for the generalizations later. It's certainly not fair that she has to deal with that. I have no problem with her and I hope she gets through this just fine. But people in this thread saying, "yes, men are trash" and later reiterating, "yes, all men" and "even me, I'm trash" Screw you. I feel bad enough about myself on a daily basis that I don't need you assholes telling me I'm trash just because I'm a man and so many other men suck. Yes, you did tell me I'm trash. You said all men, multiple times. You're calling yourselves trash. You're implying I should do the same. I don't deserve to feel like this, and you shouldn't tell me to. Can't wait for you all to tell me I'm fragile. Yes, I am fragile. I'm a loser, I'm miserable, I hate myself every day. Thanks for contributing to that.

Reason User banned (2 weeks): Inflammatory false equivalencies surrounding race and gender.
Not sure why there can't just be an equal standard. All woman are trash would be an abhorrent and ridiculous thing to say. Same with All men are trash. See also: all white people are trash, all black people are trash, all old people are trash, all young people are trash. This isn't OK no matter what subset you are talking about. Unless its about mobile games. All mobile games really are trash.

As a man I don't really care what some random person on twitter says about men. But as a user of this forum I find really embarrasing the amount of hypocrisy and double standards in many of the replies here, even with mods on the thread.

I appreciate the clarification.It's unfortunate, then, that she didn't address specifically those people instead of painting everyone with the same brush, resulting in an easily misconstrued condemnation. Yes, surprise surprise, your choice of words means a great deal in how your message is received.

Deserved. As a man I take personal offense by her words. She should learn to defense herself without using generalizations. There are people and people.

EtcetEraThread Avengers: Endgame will not outgross Avatar worldwide. Who will make an avatar bet about that?
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Ignoring Staff Post
This thread is filled with people either suggesting or straight out saying Avatar is a piece of shit and that they can't believe anyone liked it or would be interested in any sequels. As if the people that actually like it are some kind of unbelievable morons, or drooling mush-brained imbeciles that were idiotized into liking it solely by the 3D effect. I'm pretty sure I've even seen a couple of people snidely hinting that anyone that likes it is deep down a racist or something because of its use of white savior tropes. But god forbid someone makes fun of anyone wanting to see Endgame for the umpteenth time. I wonder what this thread would be like if it had like one tenth as much loathing for Endgame as it does for Avatar. Spare me the persecution act.
