GamingThread Rapper 2 Milly plans to sue Epic Games over use of his dance Milly Rock in Fortnite
Reason User Warned: Arguing in bad faith.
I wonder if the shirtless kid from the meme video where he dances in his room will also sue Does that not also count as whitewashing and erasing culture btw or does it only become that important if the dance is popular in modern hip hop ? What about the guy DJ'ing and pumping his fist? The guy doing the 70s jig? Seems like people conveniently ignore all but two or three dances in the game in order to make the argument way more serious than it really needs to be. How about we debate the compensation of content creators, and not pretend like Fortnite was created as first blood in the race wars. Edit: How am I arguing in bad faith? How is this an infraction?

GamingThread Switch emulator Yuzu now boots Pokémon Let's Go
Reason User Warned: Equating emulation to piracy
And that's fine but do you really think that the majority of people that will be using this emulator will be going through the trouble of hacking their Switch, buying a game and ripping a ROM when they could just easily download it for free? Of course there are innocent people that just want to perhaps play at 60fps and with actual AA in this game but don't kid yourself in thinking that you are the majority in doing this. It's a game that game out yesterday and is in a semi-playable state, sorry but piracy should be a discussion here same as the fact that it's impressive that they got it bootable and semi-playable so fast. If it's a new Game Boy emulator and a video of playing Tetris then that is fine but this is a little close to the line for my taste.

GamingThread Switch emulator Yuzu now boots Pokémon Let's Go
Reason User Banned (3 days): Equating emulation and piracy after prior warning.
But most people using emulators don't own the games. That's the entire point. Nobody is saying you in particular are pirating anything, nor anybody else owning the games. Maybe it's just a matter of personal experience. If you hang out online with a lot of emulation-fans who get their copies to just paly the game they bought with better resolution or other nice additions you could easily get annoyed at people saying emulators are enabling piracy. As someone who knows 15+ people in real life that use emulators and not a owned a single game they played through said emulators nor had any Nintendo console since the SNES, I see people who go online and act like emulation is this totally legal thing that people totally use in legal ways being disingenuous as fuck. Yes, it's in itself not illegal. No, most people don't buy their games before they use an emulator to play it.

Reason User Banned (1 day): Equating emulation to piracy
I'll happily join the "omg it's piracy" crowd to point out that this will overwhelmingly be used for piracy and nothing else. There's a reason these emulators always use the latest and most popular games in their showcases, and it's not to show off the accuracy of the emulator.

Reason User Banned (1 Week): Inflammatory Attacks on Staff
Again, using that logic you can basically post everything a company does in all of their threads. CDPR donates to charity? But their tweets! CDPR game wins an award? But their tweets! CDPR game is releasing soon? But their tweets! CDPR earnings reports? But their tweets! There is a reason why rules about thread derailment and offtopic posting are made. It prevents threads from turning into the above mess. You only need to visit any emulation thread, as it always becomes "this is piracy" thread. This stuff used to be strictly moderated, but the moderation here seems to be poor. If you said "this is gamefaqs", I'd have believed you. Regardless, that doesn't let you derail any and all threads about the company. It's against the rules of this forum. If you feel so passionately about the situation, make a new thread about that topic.

They announced today that on top of Paladins, SMITE and Realm Royale are coming to the Switch; - they all hit 60 fps, - they will support Cross play and Cross progression for Switch, Xbox One and PC. - they showed that it's totally possible to support 4 platforms. - they added highly requested features like gyro controls. (and brought that feature even on PS4) Which reminded me that for an entire year we've heard that it's tough to support 4 platforms, that Switch hardware maybe can't handle games like Overwatch (despite it runs on shittier PCs),... And here we are with a company significantly smaller than those delivering no big deal. Food for thought.

This is completely subjective to whomever you're talking to. There's a lot of funny dunkey videos.

I'd also like to add this wasn't at anyone this wasn't at anyone alive or living this was a part of a song that he did for a video of his. If that was the case we would stop talking about anyone in any Quentin Tarantino movie, because they say all kinds of racial slurs there. Boy do I have stuff in store for you. There's beyond plenty of rappers out there whom are also white who use the n word. I'm gonna be safe to assume as well you don't like rap. I once again don't see how him in a satirical setting making fun of people and parts of a game (I'm talking about the Sleeping Dogs part). Is racist?

EtcetEraThread Officer shoots, kills armed security guard outside south suburban bar
Reason User Banned (Permanent): History of defending and dismissing police brutality. Previous infraction for similar behaviour. Account in junior phase.
It's important to take into account witness statements. There are issues at play such as whether the uniform is clearly identifiable and marked. The other side is the lighting conditions and positioning of the security guard/suspect and responding officers and whether such, if any, marking were identifiable to them. A note on uniforms. For example, when I type my reports while on routine patrol, I will state I am working in full uniform and driving a marked police vehicle. That is different when, for example, I am serving a search warrant and am not wearing a full uniform. There I will notate that I am wearing a modified tactical uniform which clearly state police in large bold white print on the front and back. The point here is in how the courts address search and seizure. Lawful commands from a clearly marked law enforcement officer is hard to negate when they are in full uniform. It alleviates any issues of uncertainty or taint. To draw back to the point at the top of the page, I would need to see what entails a uniform and whether it's clearly identifiable. Again, officers are responding - with lights and siren - to a chaotic and ongoing scene where an active shooter is reported. Radios are loud, sirens are loud, driving to scene with a hot call causes a massive adrenaline rush. Hot calls will involve a multitude of duplicate 911 calls reporting varying information. There is a lot to dissect here.

GamingThread PlayStation will not host a conference for E3 2019 (No off site event either)
Reason User banned (2 days): platform wars rhetoric
cant quote your post. not sure whats going on with era today. MS fucking sucks. They are shit. You can look at my post history to see how much I loathe Phill Spencer and MS's first party output this gen. Hell, just take a look at my posts from earlier this week complaining about nintendo's first party output. Sony is different. I compare Sony to Sony from last gen. Sony is the best first party publisher of the last decade or so. And they are taking a year off. This is troubling. I dont know how else to say this. All the games you mentioned above are games that are 2019 titles. But let's assume for arguments sake that some of these will get pushed to 2020. That still leaves five exclusives for the last two years of the PS4's life cycle. PS3's final two years are as follows.We can argue the quality of these titles but even in 2012 they had stuff to show for PS3's 2020. Next year, they will have nothing. Sony makes a billion dollars from PS+ alone this gen. they are making billions every year. last gen they lost billions and still acquired new studios. and then boom, started closing down one studio after another and that is why they have fucking nothing to show next year. And again, you can call it nonsense but tell me what you expect them to release in 2020 and 2021 for the PS5 besides the games i have already mentioned. Horizon 2, GT7, Spiderman 2, and God of War 2. two exclusives a year. And thats the best case scenario. Everyone here is saying that games like TLOU 2 which was revealed at PSX 2016 wont make the 2019 release. Death Stranding which was revealed in E3 2016 wont receive a 2019 release. Ghosts which was revealed at Paris Game Show in October 2017 wont receive a 2019 release. So why are we so confident that games that will be revealed at E3 2020 will come out in 2021 just a year later? bottom line is that missing a year is ba

GamingThread "Video Game Preservation" is a Mere Pretext for Piracy... and a Poor One at That
Red Text It is against our terms of service to advocate piracy, so I don't think that this sort of topic can be productive on this particular forum, given the prohibitions present if someone was to take the counter view to the OP's.

Hence the lock.
