GamingThread Which is your favorite out of the big 3?
Reason User Warned: Platform wars, Inflammatory generalizations towards an entire community
Sony. Really have no opinion on Microsoft, was never interested in their games( they do make good hardware, though.) As for Nintendo, it was pretty much the same as Microsoft, but that changed when I started frequenting gaming forums where I first came into contact with Nintendo fanboys. Because of them, I hate evertything that has to do with Nintendo and seeing them defeated when Nintendo is struggling is always a great source of entertainment.

Can’t argue with the results of Valve actually updating Steam. If they had such a redesign in development for years before Epic, well, that itself is a problem.

But this place has become a complete parody of itself already. Between the 2 or 3 threads about Death Stranding that get created daily for every single tiny inconsequential detail that dribbles out of Kojima's mouth and the current trend of these ridiculous "Is Microsoft ruining gaming?" threads there is a definite argument that could be made about tightening up the quality control.

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Rationalizing Racism; Prior Severe Ban for Dismissing Concerns on Racism
I don't see how you can construe that from my statement.That's not at all what I mean. We shouldn't put up with discrimination, but specifically within comedy people seem to be unwilling to put in the effort to critically distinguish between what's actually bigoted and what's not washing them both together merely because the joke hinges on a stereotype. To illustrate, South Park has a long history of humor directed towards Asian stereotypes - the Mongorians, Chinpokemon, Shitty Wok, etc. Is this humor actually racist? I posit that it's not because it's actually built on an appreciation of the historical and cultural contexts from which these skits derive, and is therefore different from the present situation because it's not. But it seems to me that people are increasingly less willing to do this mental calculus, declare the thing bigoted, and then rage over it.

EtcetEraThread As an anime fan, its unsettling/disturbing how many people defend lolicon
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Rationalizing the Sexualized Depiction of Minors
I can kinda see the “liking loli doesn’t make you pedo” argument from the standpoint of anime being low detail and highly stylized, leading to most characters (including many lolis) being fairly age-vague. Many loli character designs could pass as a petite young adult. I’ve certainly known several adults who’d almost certainly look like lolis or shonen protagonists if they were turned into anime characters. And if you’ve delved into the world of hentai, you’re bound to come across certain artists who draw characters that look much more explicitly like actual children than the average loli characters you find in popular anime do. There’s no defending that shit.

EtcetEraThread As an anime fan, its unsettling/disturbing how many people defend lolicon
Reason User banned (duration pending): excusing the sexualized depictions of minors
Kinks like rape and incest role play, as well as age play, are often used by consenting adults to process and move beyond real abuse they have suffered. I am someone who has absolutely used kink to process and work through trauma I have suffered in this way. So I'm deeply opposed to kink-shaming, and anyone criticizing consenting adults for whatever fantasies they choose to involve themselves with sexually. Now, I don't imagine anyone is using loli fetish anime to process trauma; but it's still fiction created by and for consenting adults. You look at rape or incest role play porn, I vibe you, and wonder if you happen to be a survivor of abuse. Regardless, I don't for a second fear that you're engaging with those acts in real life. But you look at videos of someone being sexually assaulted, and you're tacitly supporting the abuse of an unwilling victim, and need to be held accountable. That's how I feel about lolicon media. If no children are being harmed, I've got no beef with consenting adults. Ugh, I know this is a super unpopular opinion here, but opposing kink-shaming is something I'm passionate about, because I've seen the harm it can do, and the good that can come from damaged people indulging in kinks that many would consider repugnant.

EtcetEraThread USSR invaded Poland in September 1939? WRONG - says Russian ambassy...
Reason User Banned (duration pending): inflammatory historical revisionism over multiple posts
Because access to non USA propaganda histories are easier to get ahold of. Lots of previous sealed war documents are now in the public domain that show that USA and western countries were not the GOD sent saviors of the world they have painted themselves to be. Let be clear- Russia did alot of terrible things- there is no excusing their invasions, gulags, and massacres. But Russia went from pre WWI when it was an economic partner to Britain and the USA (helping with west imperialist holdings), to suffering civil war during WWI. People ignore that Britain sent troops into Russia to help the losers. Stalin did reach out to West prior to joining the Nazis- but were ignored and rebuffed. The joining with Hitler was to give Russia time to rebuild it military to defend themselves. Russia had no western allies- Churchhill was happy to let them fight. People who paint Russia joining the Nazis as evil completely ignore that Britain and the USA were fine with letting Russia get beat by Hitler. Again, I don't condone what Russia did during that time, but it did not have to happen if the west would have stood with their one time allies instead of letting them face Hitler alone. Even after they joined the Allies, and Lend Lease, the deals were always tailored to benefit Britain troops over Russian troops. Stalin's mass mobilization of the Russian war machine (with the aid of USA money) was what dealt the crippling blow to to Germany- the Eastern front decimated the Nazi army though sheer brute force. After the European part of the war ended, The USA already started to change the deals it made with Russia. Again, the Russian did word the treated to give them wiggle room, but so did the USA, Britain, and France. The USA was able to lock up most of Europe into the Marshall plan, which locked USSR out of European trade block- which the war ravaged USSR desperately needed access to cash markets. It is typical Western capitalism- use resources of nations, then fuck the people there economically. The bombing of Japan was completely unnecessary- there is plenty of evidence that Japan was willing to negotiate an end to the war, the USA ignored them. The bombing was done to send a message to Russia. WE killed all those people just to make a point. If you go back into history after WWI- the again the western nations locked Japan out of the power block, leading to Japan attacking in WWII. The war is allot more nuanced then taught in the USA. Hitler is still terrible- but could have been avoid if the sanctions after WWI didn't drive German economy into the gutter giving him desperate population to control. The Russian Revolution needed to happen- life under the Czar system was terrible- but the west should not have interfered- setting up resentment with the new government. The USA only joined WWII for economic reasons- not because we were liberating anyone. USA denied Jewish refugees and sent them back to die. The USA win in WWII set up the USA's global dominance and reliance on wars to keep our economy running. And Churchhill is a piece of shit. Like Stalin, he had his moment of "heroism", but allot of his action during his career supported the imperialism and colonialism system that contributed to WWI and WWII. Look at Vietnam, Korea, the Middle East, Central and South America- look at what the USA has done to them for "freedom" and capitalism, it is really is no wonder why people look towards socialism. A good portion of western Europe has socialist systems that work along side capitalism. But here in the USA- the Red Scare and Communism still blind us to better forms of government.

It was early 20th century, maps changed almost on a monthly basis, and many countries either lost huge chunks of territory or disappeared altogether. So why would it be strange that opportunistic countries tried to take advantage. Poland crumbled like a house of cards, they were completely embarrased and outclassed. What should have Soviets done, let their people in territories occupied by Poland fall into German hands, especially Jews. Polish government back then were proper bastards, oopressing minorities (to say the least). They bit off more territory than they can chew and it backfired spectacularly. The tweet is correct.

GamingThread PC Gaming ERA | September 2019 - The Girls Are Back In Town
Reason User Banned (1 week): inflammatory point of comparison
That didn't come out of nowhere. Epic came in using the most antagonistic methods possible and their CEO has repeatedly stoked the flames of war. This whole EGS thing honestly reminds me so much of the current Brexit situation, and I think that's why I'm so frustrated with it. Basically you have a non-perfect but incredibly well-establishes status quo (the EU/Steam) being suddenly challenged by a newer, highly-antagonistic faction who wishes to completely disrupt that status quo (Brexiteers/Epic) for their own personal gain. That newer challenger mixes the legitimate issues with a whole bunch of overblown lies/hyperbole whilst getting both 'lower-folk' (Indies in this case, I honestly can't think of a better term) and money-focused elites (major publishers) on their side with promises of mass-prosperity. For us regular folk there's a arbitrary line being drawn in the sand that, frankly, very few people actually gave a shit about before, and that line has created a division and animosity between people that will likely never go away because it's a war that nobody can actually win. It's just so incredibly frustrating and I'm sick of these artificial crises being drawn up by those who are so very obviously just out for themselves.

That doesn't really make sense to me. This would be like saying that a Jewish family creating stationary for a customer wanting ironic nazi slogans on it should be forced to do it since they aren't the ones doing the speech, but the customer. It may be the customer's words, but the family is the one producing it in their product. Refusing to provide stationary without words on it would be a violation of discrimination laws, as far as I know. But when you get words involved, then it gets more complicated. Because its going from a general product to one that has content within.

Every single Switch port has issues. Every single one. I love my switch but there is literally no reason to ever buy a switch version of a game that exists on another console. Portability is cute until the game crashes (Tales of Vesperia which had issues on switch that it didn’t have elsewhere). Even ports of games that should have absolutely no issues running perfectly have problems. Can’t tell if it’s just devs being lazy or not caring about their Switch version or if Switch is some crazy hard to work with console (lol).

Reason User Banned (5 days): Do not invoke Nazi comparisons in this topic
Nazi's felt it was OK for them to punish other races to create their beloved ethnostate because they felt that they themselves had been punished in the past by their "scheming". Nowadays we've got Israeli politicians calling for the destruction of other races in Palestine to secure a ZIonist ethnostate because apparently Arabs want nothing more than to exterminate all Jews. It might go into complex history of why the two ethnicities have and are clashing, but there's really easy to understand reasons why so many people find the actions of Israel's current government, and even opposition, disgusting. If you can't accept that the actions in Palestine are at their most very basic, ethnic cleansing, you need to rethink your position.

He never said that at all. Do you want to have an actual discussion or instead keep perpetuating strawmen since they're easier to knock down than the actual reality of the situation. PDP are on multiple occasions unequivocally apologised for his mistakes and taken full and sole responsibility. Are you just going to ignore that because it doesn't fit your narrative of him "failing to take responsibility"? What PDP is talking in his latest statement in regards to the MSM is 100% fact and a massive issue with the MSM. PDP has thousands upon thousands of hours of completely and utterly banal content. When the MSM covered him they instead focused on what? 10-20 minutes collectively of content? To be on the safe side lets say it's collective 1 hour. How much as a percentage of his work does that represent? far less than 1%. They ran with this 1% and shouted about it for the roofs tops and disseminated to countless people as if it was the majority of the content he put out. Yes PDP's actions are his own, no question about that. And if he hadn't done shitty things then the media wouldn't have had shitty things to report on. But he's fully correct in saying the media played a part in perpetuating the negative image he has. I'm not sure what this has to do with anything. PDP said something/did something shitty and faced repercussions as a result. That's a fact.

GamingThread Nintendo files multimillion-dollar lawsuit against ROM website, RomUniverse
Reason User Banned (7 days): Justifying piracy, history of severe infractions
That’s sweet. I played earthbound for the first time on an emulator in 2006. I also have a physical copy that my sister purchased in 1999 that I played in 2010. I was also part of a 30+ member forum community of people who mostly played emulated games. We were all teenagers or in our early 20s, you think we had money to buy shit? So there’s roughly 20 people right there who pirated Earthbound. Here’s a hint, most people pirated Earthbound because most people weren’t going to pay $60 for Earthbound in 2003, let alone $50+ going forward. Also it’s been stupid expensive since like 2009. I’ve been following racketboy for long enough to remember their rarest SNES games list and while EB rated low on rarity, it still averaged about $100-$150 in 2009.

This is what is wrong with the left. Instead welcoming positive change with open arms, people expect you to die living a life they deem correct and then maybe you will earn their forgiveness/whatever it is you think you offer. Fuck this attitude. It's what fuels so many people to go right in the first place where they are welcome without being forever ridiculed for some dumb ass reason. Nobody has to burn at the stake and give up all worldy possessions to earn your good graces, it's unreasonable and illogical. No better than the thing you claim to hate.

lol what the fuck. That’s literally THE WHOLE POINT of the story’s themes! It’s not just some tacked on shit. The game posits that if we lived in a society that was built on objectivist morality, that it would likely collapse because of the absolute selfishness built into its philosophy that would cause mass greed and corruption. Obviously it’s hyperbolic for the sake of being a satirical horror game, but I wouldn’t call it “stupid”.

Keep on digging that self-important ditch.

Throw in a few “I’m actually dying” or “I’m about to be made homeless” self-pitying whines along with whatever withering illness you've claimed to have since the early Kotaku years and this can be your next blog post: “I’m Doc, and Resetera is wrong about video games. Halo and Gears are the best in the space, and I’ve had a lot of time to play them as I’m close to living out of a box in the alleyway.” And who gives a shit about which mod said to David ducking Jaffe about your writing. Let it go. You’ve had a lot of constructive feedback and some fair discussion on your points in this thread and you’ve conceded exactly no points. You’re unable to see the value that others place in these “prestige games” as you label them because you’re unable to glean anything from them entertainment value wise because you are trying to view everything through the lens of an auteur, a critic one step above everyone else. Just accept that for every game you love, someone else will hate it. It’s ok to like different things - the difference is they’re not calling you an idiot for it.

Reason User Banned (1 Week) - Personal attacks and off-site drama
"grown" is a state of mind. I'm not sure this guy is there yet. There is a very..."interesting" interview he gave a while back that gives an insight to why he rates things the way he does. Paraphrasing here because the interview is very wordy: YIKES. If there's a better candidate for "has no business writing about games" I've yet to see it. The dude is extremely elitist, has VERY narrow ideas of what makes a decent game, and if a game does not meet that criteria it's written off, and those who like it are written off as "people who don't understand gaming." That Game You Like doesn't have a good story, you only think it does because good facial animation is tugging at your heartstrings. Graphics don't matter, they did during the 90s and everyone who still rates graphics as important is wrong. Red Dead Redemption is a Western only because it SOUNDS like one. Sound Design is the most important thing. I mean, these are some very bizarre, out there opinions and it's no wonder literally everything Sony makes doesn't fit within his criteria of "what makes a good game" and is instead a "prestige game" for dirty casuals who don't know better.

Reason User Banned (1 Week): Inflammatory False Equivalence Surrounding Racism
I don't think anyone is defending racism, just pointing out that all demographics voted leave, remain, it's not clear cut poor people voting leave, comfortable, well off people voting remain, white, black, asian picking remain or leave. Immigration fears, racism was a huge part, no doubt about it and the leave campaigns, media played it like a fiddle and the resulting leave win only encouraged racists which is a terrible outcome but one that probably needed to show it's head that it's here and will always be unfortuately, needs called out and fought against. I would also say it's not always white on black or asian hate, it does happen the other way, the fear of the other, EU immigration crossed demographics too. As for other reasons, sure people just don't like EU, believe it's a waste of money, believe all the lies over the years or maybe legitimently think we can go alone even if they are wrong or right, these people may be few and far between and it's just cover for fear of immigration, society changing, quite possible but let's not forget 70% voted in the election, 33 million people and 17 million voted leave in a country of 70 million. Hate is everywhere but I'm trying to be positive and hope we turn a corner and people see the good path now and the obvious lies.

GamingThread Final Fantasy VIII Remastered |OT| You're The Best Looking Remaster Here
Reason User warned: ‘lazy devs’ rhetoric
That's a bad argument. The new character models is the only real effort that's been put into this (again, I think they look amazing but the discrepancy between these and the lack of effort put into touching up the rest of the game is jarring). The backgrounds look worse than in the original steam release. Then there's the FPS issues, lack of rumble and analogue control. Square Enix had lost the source code for KH yet managed to create a lovely HD remaster using simple reverse engineering. The fact that they couldn't even be bothered to use AI upscaling, but decided an ugly blur filter was the way to go is baffling and honestly lazy. No one could possibly argue that this is as good as these backgrounds could ever look when not only the AI upscaled versions look significantly better but so does the untouched low res source material. Examples of actual effort being put into remastering games under similar circumstances include what Capcom did with RE0 and Onimusha.

You see this fictional character? I'm not afraid to admit that I've lost litres of cum to this character of mere fantasy. Isn't it funny how not even real girls arouse me like he does? I have killed millions of my offspring to the thought of having intercourse with a cartoon character. a character conceived by the mind of another man somewhere in the world. Who knows, maybe there was a scientist who could have cured cancer, the engineer who could have figured out the terraforming of Mars, or even the future president of the United States among the sperm that now lay on that tissue. Needless to say, I don't regret it. He's literal perfection. I can assure you that I will keep fantasizing about him and I won't stop anytime soon. Do you think that the fact that he's not real is a barrier to me? Hell no. With the help of ResetEra, I have trained lucid dreaming and astral projection to cross between the human world and the anime dimension and finally met him. We went to a McDonalds in my latest cross-dimension trip, sadly I had to wake and go to my minimum wage job. Right now I am working on my tulpa to bring him over to the human world. He might not be real to you, but he will be for me very soon.

GamingThread Reminder | DriveClub will be gone from PS Store on August 31st, 2019 Forever (update: now gone, they took it down early)
Reason User warned: hostility towards another member
Dude. There are WAY too many games to keep track of at once, and way more than one can buy. I can't ever tell when something is going to be good or not. Sometimes you'll spend a while trying different games and none of them quite grab you. That shit takes time for some of us. Plus, sometimes you wait to pick up a game that's totally different to something you've played before, because frankly, most people can't afford to just throw down $60 at launch for something they might not even like. Then, other things take their attention away and they lose track. Because again, there's TOO. FUCKING. MANY GAMES. "If you really cared." Dude, you're missing the point. I care, because I care, because I'd...ya know, NEVER PLAYED IT. How the fuck am I supposed to know whether I'll care about it. I've been wrong both ways way too many times. It's not because I don't "know my tastes." It's that I, and a lot of people like me, like experiencing new things. Some of those click, others take a little longer to click, and some never click at all. Like dude, hell sometimes people don't even know games exist, or in this case, hear everywhere that it's bad. I spend a lot of time on Era but all I ever heard was that it was a complete and utter shit show. Why would I investigate further? There are too many games to look into to see if they are a shit show 5 years later. Given that even when on "sale" recently it still cost me over $60 to grab the content for Driveclub, that's fucking expensive for me still. I'm sorry but I can't spend that much money on every game I be interested in. I don't know when I'll enjoy a game or not. I really fucking thought I'd enjoy Monster Hunter World, and guess what for the very first bit I did, but ultimately it had too many aspects that annoyed and stressed me out, so I dropped it. That was $60. Gone because well sorry but I prefer digital. But physical still wouldn't help a whole lot because my time is not constantly available consistently. Sorry, life exists. I will never have enough money to try the games I want. But what about say, Dark Souls? I never, ever would have thought I'd enjoy it, but it was FREE on xbox games with gold way back and I loved the hell out of it...eventually. That game was so incredible in changed my life, and I never would have even tried it. Because of that I've learned to be more open about what I try, but with that comes the fact that there are WAY. TOO. MANY. And at some point I've gotta prioritize based on how games look, what people say about them, gut feeling, and availability. Like, I'm sorry I don't have infinite money to try everything I want to at launch, and I'm sorry that I don't enjoy every game that I buy, but I've got to spend my money wisely, because yeah, . That's such a myopic fucking view. You can't look at this shit in a vacuum. Why the hell does this need to be explained to you? And I don't have people I can borrow games from, and rentals are far too expensive for me to figure out if I like them or not. Moreover, I'm supposed to fucking be able to enjoy games. Ya know, like, as a luxury. A pass time. All of ya'll would say "don't force yourself to play shit you don't want to play." Well yeah, so I don't. I play what I feel like playing. Guess what, as a human, that fucking changes. 6 months ago I was really deep into Destiny 2. I wouldn't have time nor would I have cared enough to enjoy Driveclub. Lately, I've been feeling racing games more, and I was going to do Forza 6 but I heard this was getting delisted and a lot of people lamented that saying it was a great game, so I tried it instead, and wow, it's great, despite everything I'd heard about it before recently. Similar happened with Gravity Rush. I loved the online aspect of Gravity Rush 2, but I'd been trying to do other things that also were going away, so I didn't have a ton of time with it, but the time I did have was wonderful. And I was only lucky enough to try those two because I have a PS4. Most people can't own every console so are physically unable to try some games financially. "You have no excuse" fuck OFF. Every purchase is a bet, no matter how many of my friends my like or dislike a game. I don't know a single person who I trust to recommend games who would have recommended Dust an Elysian Tale, and guess what, I fucking love that game. Everyone I know told me to try Gears of War 4, and while I loved the previous games, I really didn't like it at all and still haven't finished it. I never would have thought to play Viva Pinata but I adore it and it's like my favorite game ever. NieR I never would have played because I HAD NEVER HEARD OF IT despite being on GAF constantly. Like, sorry? But a random classmate mentioned it, and I tried it. Holy shit I still use its music to fall asleep. I am constantly on the hunt for games that will stir in me those magical feelings that I'll never get like them again ever. A lot of those of us who are huge fans of video games are that way. Like, fucking forgive us for being humans with lives and limited time and resources trying to find meaningful games that impact them and provide them with lasting memories when we get annoyed that a game we were interested in but couldn't try gets delisted. And don't fucking mock me with some "lol Driveclub is gonna give you lasting memories" why the fuck do you think you get to judge what people value and enjoy? Like seriously, I'm so fucking tired of this weird pseudo-idealistic, axiomatic, theoretical out of touch accusatory bullshit. Nothing works as neat and tidy as you act like it does. And what's worse, get the fuck out of here with that audacity to come in here and tell people off and fucking scold them like children because they didn't align with your myopic viewpoint. "ThAt's No ExCUse." Where the fuck do you get off talking to people like that? Especially when you haven't taken a single moment to consider the practical reality of this situation, and act as if everyone just has infinite attention. You have no fucking excuse for being such a prick. Seriously. Fuck. Off.

I lost some respect for Scott after reading this. It seems like everyone knew about Alec and his mental illness but no one ever talked with him about it. It's even sadder because he talks about how one time Bethany made those twitter posts how she's done with Alec and he listened and got better etc. You would think, after that, they would talk with him more about it but it seems like they were again just silently suffering. They made a beautiful game about friendship and mental illneses, that friends should help each other but in real life they just didn't do much. This is just a huge fuck up on all sides. That "I survived Alec holowka" sounds really bad. He's successful thanks to Alec. He could have waited some more before badmouthing him. He died just a few days ago. Let his family mourn.

This is not grammatically correct when referring to an individual though. I have no problem not referring to somone as "he/she" or "him/her." But "they" implies plural. See the following: You wouldn't say, for example "The object belongs to them." when referring to a non-binary individual.

Fuck your false dilemma that we have to choose between having good games and having ethical companies. There is literally nothing you or I do that can fundamentally change crunch, because the cause of crunch is the manager who drops your contract because you went home after only working 50 hours that week. You and I do not make games release unfinished and early just to squeeze them into the right business quarter. And I don't use the employees as a shield to protect the companies bad practices from legitimate criticism, you and the business do. The facts of the matter is we have good cause to know D3 is in development and this joke of a season/'focus on D2' nonsense is just a way to squeeze a big more blood out of their customers while the bulk of bungies resources are elsewhere. We're not getting less because of crunch, we're getting less because bungie doesn't want to spend more.

I always have and still do believe that I’m an extremely liberal and left leaning person but honestly this site just exhausts me and embarrasses me sometimes. It’s full of hypocrites who just want any excuse to “cancel” another human being who doesn’t live up to the impossibly perfect standards they’ve set. I’ve really grown to dislike this site over time. People here rag on NeoGaf, and while I’d never post there again, at least there simply having an opinion isn’t enough to get you banned. The moderation here is terrible, you can catch a ban for simply not being liberal enough, and as a liberal, that’s some bullshit.

Reason User Banned (A week): Inflammatory commentary suggesting a suicide as manipulative behavior.
I internalized your post as saying that we should not discuss accusations, which is happened, meant someone would drop their accusation and that would be it. No effects no ripples no dissemination. Its bad.Also an extremely bad take because might as well just shut down Reset Era because welp the gamergate chuds are just always going to do that. Maybe we should have people who moderate discussions? (Oright we do)Going to highlight a really fucking bad phrase in this paragraph. There's a reason why Zoe used her twitter to make the post and that was to make it public information that Alec, an indie developer with a good reputation, abused her. So that anyone who dealt with him also knew what he had done in the past because that shit is reprehensible and should not be tolerated in any fair society. This shit bums me out too and disgusts me. His death (And I'm assuming suicide) reeks of a manipulative behavior that I can't quite put into words right now. Alec has permanently altered the course of the #MeToo resurgence happening in games media and caused even more irreparable harm and damage to victims. It fucking sucks man.

EtcetEraThread Hollywood Reporter: Dave Chappelle Slams Michael Jackson Accusers and "Cancel Culture" in Netflix Special
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Dismissing Allegations of Sexual Abuse Over Multiple Posts in this Thread
What exactly am I masking? I explicitly said MJ is innocent and this special doesn't help the cause in my first comment. Rephrasing it doesn't reveal anything more than that.Deliberately one-sided and evasive. Many articles have come out since its release questioning the timelines in the movie. The movie itself has been re-edited multiple times as it screened in new markets.

Just seeing this on the first page made me feels sick. People of Resetera have played their part in this tragedy. Whether the allegations were real or not, this mob culture has to stop. Anyone could be accused of wrongdoing and find their life destroyed, regardless of truth. That could easily be you or a loved one. And places like this site and Twitter perpetuate that. Victims should be believed but public lynching and life destroying is taking it too far. You are not the judge, jury and executioner. Is it right that someone’s life can be destroyed by an allegation? No, it’s not. And with that (likely going to be banned for speaking my mind anyway), I think I’m done with gaming forums, especially this one.

Not saying its wrong just that he didn't deserve to die for it either. The ideal solution would be to treat him. Its just as mentally ill to dox the guy to kill himself. Being a victim gives you no right to turn someone else into a victim. You'd think victims would understand that the most. If you wanna have a debate about how we handle mental illness here and how poor that is, I'm open to it. Thats a much bigger problem.

She knows what consequences of actions are, what mental issues mean, that hate groups exist on the internet, yet she felt, for one reason or another, to dump a personal issue online involving other people. What the flying fuck was going on in her head when she said all this? If someone's going to dump his or her life story on the internet, fine. She invaded the privacy of someone else on the account of being "a victim". I'm sure she's a delightful person. Not.

I find it sad that Zoe didn't mention anything about Alec's previous experience as a victim or his mental health issues, you would think she would have considering she's a huge advocate for victims and knows exactly how shitty mass harassment can be. It's definitely better for victims to come forward but I don't think she fully thought about the effect it would have by tweeting it out to her massive following.

Can people ever rise above their worst actions? On the internet the answer to that question is no. If you did something bad but you turned your life around you'll likely never amount to more than who you were at your worst online. I can't say what Quinn's objective was in her actions but I can say what the result was. That lead to a chain of events that ended a person's life. That's a hell of a thing to go to sleep at night knowing you contributed to in any way at all. People need to reflect on this the next time someone decides to go on Twitter and make a post to expose someone. You have to know that when you do something like that you will ruin someone else possibly for the rest of their life because online people will always be held to their worst.

It's stand-up comedy. Through that lens, Dave put together a decent special but definitely nowhere near as good as his last 2 specials. I think the debate around the appropriate-ness of the jokes he's making is not the right lens to see A stand-up comedy set. In terms of my review, this was a 6/10.

EtcetEraThread Wow this has flown under the radar regarding India
Reason User banned (2 weeks): history of mispresenting concerns around racism
I highly recommend people read a little about this before getting on any pro or anti-bandwagon. This issue is both negative and positive, and it's important to understand why it's necessary. Another important thing to understand, no-one is getting jailed or kicked out (except for new illegal immigrants that get caught) - everyone not on the NRC list will get months/years to prove they are original Indian citizens (most in those States are not unfortunately). India which already has one of the largest populations (still largely rural and agri-based) hasn't till recently had a legit way of stopping illegal immigration since what has happened is that regional parties have allowed immigrants in so that they keep getting voted into power (before BJP came into power there were IDs, but not centralized or administered properly) - only since the BJP has come into power has this started to go down. It's always been a big issue in India, but tough to do anything about because previous governments turned a blind eye to it so that they'd keep getting votes and/or keep their local allies happy (regional parties that were getting votes from non-Indians). And this whole Muslim/Hindu thing - like I said, read up on it, and don't be ignorant. Most of these border States are Hindu/Christian - population from Bangladesh/attached countries are largely Muslim, so it makes sense that most illegal immigrants are Muslim. Of course the media likes to push certain points, so you have some 'tabloid news' sites trying to make it a Hindu vs Muslim thing. Also important to note, the number is around 4.2million whose citizenship checks have been rejected for now - and not 30 mil as it seems to imply in the OP. Again, don't be ignorant, read up on what you plan to talk about. As for time to appeal rejections, briefly - people have 4 months to go to tribunals which have 6 months to decide each case, and after that people can decide to take their cases to High Courts (which themselves can take months) and then the Supreme Court. Till then India can't actually deport/jail anyone. The people getting jailed are illegal immigrants coming in now, after proper border checks have been put in place.

My position is on this case that, Vic i believe has done some wrong(personal opinion). At same time im for due process and I want to see some evidence against vic. I can't live by the "listen and believe" only despite that personal opinion. That said, Ive observed a lot of this thread. The one thing I will say is that throughout this process, imo a lot of folks in this thread seem to be willing let shit go or dismiss things as not "relevant" for their own convenience. As long as the "prize" is got. This has led to what imo has been shitty behavior being accepted when things look in the wrong. I decided to say something about the Ron Toye thing first cuz to me, that was disturbing. And still is. This latest thing with the va yeah it comes off as a joke but im willing to bet if that came from the "other side", a lot of you, no almost all of the people here who are not really neutral(or at least not really trying to be) would be singing a different tune.

Reason User Warned: Inflammatory Language
Let's just call it as it is. (disclaimer: The following insults and accusations are simply hyperbole and not meant seriously). Everybody currently involved could be pieces of shit. Ron beats up women. Chris and Sean are racist/homophobic assholes. Jamie and Monica are vengeful bitches. Greg is a failure as a lawyer and human being. Shane is a wannabe who inserted himself just so people recognice him. Marzgurl is a Dramaqueen who makes everything about herself. Renfamous is as much a shitstirrer and cloutchaser as Yellowflashguy etc. Dominique, Pridemore and the other cosplayers are just whores using the attention to get more famous. Half of the accusations were out of context or made up by some rando on an internet forum. Even if everything mentioned above was true. It wouldn't change the fact that Vic is a Diva, a creep, an abuser, possibly even a pedophile. That he will lose this case. Because nothing about this turns him being fired and the tweets into "ACTUAL MALICE". Everybody involved had good reason to believe what they did and said was correct. Friggin R. Kelly could be accusing him and it wouldn't change a thing. (Second disclaimer: I'm pretty sure most of the VAs involved aren't people i would want to actually spend time with. A lot of them appear to be selfabsorbed and fake people. But that's what a shitton of fame and fans does to you. Doesn't mean i can't believe them over a drunk rambling idiot and an inept lawyer)

IMO it wasn't as funny as any of his other specials nor did he say a lot new but I was entertained. It reminds me a lot of Aziz's last special which I found to be just Aziz trying a Bird Revelation approach but he isn't as good at crowd work as Chappelle and apart from an interesting directing type by Spike Jonze and there conveniently being a child in the front row for Aziz to riff on. He didn't have many jokes. As for Chappelle, his reckless talk approach is what is getting him in trouble. He knows he's wrong. Seriously. He says not to watch Leaving Neverland because "it's gross" not because it's wrong but just because it is ruining one of his idols. It's no different than his superhero bit of "He rapes but he saves" to illustrate his relationship with Billl Cosby. Sadly, he isn't ready to accept Jackson's fall. He looked up to him more than Cosby. He loves Prince and Jackson. Yet, the Jackson and Transgender approach isn't anything new from me. I know a shit ton of black people with his ideology. If you're part of my parents generation or older, transgenerism and genderfluidity is fucking weird to them. I get it. But I'm also a twenty-five years old dude. Transgenderism hasn't really been part of the mainstream until 2010-2013 area. Up until then, Man In A Dress or Women Being Man was a comedic set up from Tyler Perry's Madea, Big Mama's House or Motocrosssed. And those were all 2000 films. Dave has lived 86% of his life with that topic being a sure way to get laughs. I'm not saying he should get a pass. But, if you think he's going to switch his view overnight, I wouldn't bet on that. Either one of his kids is going to have to transition or a slow burn will have to occur. For me to see him flip his position on that. But while he is punching down, he isn't advocating for a stagnation in progress. He just finds it funny to him. It's reckless talk. And while I don't agree with 100% of what he says.( The car analogy for one. And the idea that you can't offend the alphabet people being a staple of Hollywood) I'm okay with him having his reckless talk because at the end of the day, he's a comedian. Not to downplay celebrity influence, but some people have compared his talk to having as much weight as if a politician said it. But Dave's a comedian. Comedians don't influence shit. As Hasan Minhaj said At the height of Jon Stewart's show, Bush won twice. I'd be fine if this was his last special for a while. He's run out of steam on these topics. It didn't feel as intimate as Bird Revelation or as compact as the others. He just needs to step away now and make some more quality jokes. This felt like he was 90% whiffing it and improvising.

I thought the special was hilarious. And genius. EDIT: After reading through the thread, I think it’s obvious some people just haven’t seen enough comedy shows. This is what it is. A lot of people said Dave fell off. I see the same Dave I’ve always seen. He’s made fun of everyone. And for the record, I think it’s important to note that Dave Chappelle never said it was bad to be part of the LGBTQ+ community. Never once did he say it was bad, you shouldn’t do it, or anything of that nature. He’s always been one of those “fuck it, do you” kind of dudes. Let’s stop acting like he’s a shit person, he’s not.

I just watched it; and I watch the short little 20 minute post credit and I had a good time - there were more than a few laughs. It's comedy. Its uncomfortable in parts but it wouldn't be as cutting if it wasn't. I enjoyed the special and he had a story/anecdote about a transexual called daphne and she shows up in the 20 minute short epilogue. 8/10That's not at all what his messaging is re: trump.

Is there a place in this conversation for the admission that sometimes women use their sexuality as a way of jumping the ladder of success? And while this does not excuse the person with more authority, it recognizes that women do have agency and does not infantilize them. I just think if we are going to have a full conversation about sexual abuse allegations and power dynamics, we should at least make a show of trying to recognize that there is more than one type of power and that responsibility, in some cases, is shared. IOW, things be complex sometimes.

I'm ready for this game, probably the game I am hyped most for this year. With Jedi being slightly behind it in hype levels. I'm kinda surprised how many of you won't play the game on EGS. I know the EGS is divisive on PC but the fact that such a large percent of you will pass up a great game so that you don't have to use a different launcher for 15 seconds is truly surprising to me. (Although I'm sure its a much lower % for people not apart of an enthusiast site like GAF). Curious to see how it does sales wise on PC.

I can’t fucking stand all these sexual predators preying on people in the games industry. They’re all fucking scum. If I had it my way, this Alexis Kennedy guy would have his life destroyed. I’d want him beaten within an inch of his life. I’d have him hacking up blood and bile while he thinks about what he’s done to women in the games industry. I’d start ripping out his toenails really slowly, hearing him beg for forgiveness and mercy. I’d flay that bastard open like the worthless sack of meat he is, taking my time to make sure he feels every single second of his punishment. Finally, I’d cut him down limb by limb, one layer of flesh, muscle, and bone at a time. I’d let his victims join in to hopefully get them som ioda if relief. It wouldn’t be much, but it’s what this goddamn monster deserves.

A few of these look interesting. It IS good to see Epic zeroing in on more obscure titles, as opposed to those on everyone's "Top 20/30" lists. Hopefully the year-long Early Access on EGS lets the devs work out all the bugs for when the games get a mainstream release. I'll put some of these on my GOG/Steam wishlists as they get closer to release dates.
