Right? I don't know why people don't seem to have any respect for anyone anymore. "Oh but not my gramma she's one of the good ones". Yeah, there's that language again.Discrimination is discrimination. Ironically, GAF/Era taught me that.

GamingThread Yuzu (Switch emulator) running Mario 3D World+Bowser's Fury at 60fps day 1
Reason User Banned (3 days): Equating emulation with piracy, thread derailing
It comes down to empathy, doesn’t it? In this thread you can absolutely prove that emulation is legal. In this thread you cannot prove that each and everybody on the site is legally emulating. The OT’s for most games around here, you take it as read the people enjoying the game along with you, legitimately obtained it. You cannot necessarily do that here, in this community, with Switch games. That’s a fact With the amount of acrobatics we all go through when talking about this topic, no matter your stance, it should start with people recognising some home truths. And how that could in turn make others feel. As I said, empathy. Don’t agree with someone? That’s your prerogative. At least consider what they are saying and why, first. Probably 50% of all Nintendo-related discussion needs to be taken with the grain of salt that we’re all emulating current hardware/software. It’s fine if that doesn’t sit well with someone, surely.

That's not what I said at all? I said her points were valid but that not all women share her opinion which is an objective truth as I quoted a woman who liked her design. That wasn't to invalidate her opinion but to reinforce that not everybody shares said opinion. "" So no, I am not "tone policing", I am just trying to have a civil conversation. Like I said earlier, your points are valid but they're not universally shared with every woman.

GamingThread Yuzu (Switch emulator) running Mario 3D World+Bowser's Fury at 60fps day 1
Reason User Warned: Equating Emulation With Piracy
Isn't this thread basicly piracy advice for people? I heard this argument time & time again of peopel that have console X that they wont buy Nintendo stuff but pirate the shit out of them. Most people who used Cemu admitted that they didnt even have a Wii U. Im all in for emulation of old consoles but current consoles and games that arent even released yet? I dont get it. Play it on the system since its the current console. I also dont get why this forum is fine with it at all. You have all this industry people on here but youre fine with pirated current gen games running on current gen emulators. Nice double standard.

I liked it when there was a hunt. paying someguy420 a couple hundred on ebay comes with little satisfaction. I went full emulation once all the local places caught on to ebay. it's also funny to hear the word "piracy" from people who pay other people hundreds that don't go to the developers for a copy of the game.

GamingThread Drew Murray rejoins Insomniac Games
Reason User banned (3 days): Console warring, conspiracy theories
My evidence is that he switched companies. If Drew really wanted to stay with his previous company, he could have got a similar roll at that company…Staying at his previous company was obviously not a high enough priority. Speaking of "zero evidence"…Please provide the evidence you have that Drew left The Initiative specifically b/c of his family tragedy (as opposed to 2 separate things happening around the same time)

Why not? Again, I'm not being insensitive and it was just a question. A quick Google search answered my question. Also why wouldn't it be my business? Is it because he's the brother of a developer people like? The guy was a drug dealer. Anyway we'll leave it at that.

GamingThread [Zelda Dungeon] Diversity in Zelda: The Need for a Black Princess Zelda
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending Review): Dismissing Concerns of Black Representation; Prior Ban for Concern Trolling About Racism
You don't have to force things or change existing things for the sake of it. This isn't diversity and it's not how it works. Fair representation. Respectful representation. New characters and lore built from the ground up – that's how it works. That's why Miles Morales is such an awesome character. They didn't just make Peter Parker black (or any other background for that matter). Also, while we're on this topic: Why not brown? Why not middle Eastern? Why not south East Asian? Not everything is just white or black, but often gets painted as such in the name of diversity. If anything, that's just as damaging. I'm so tired of this linear thinking.

GamingThread [Zelda Dungeon] Diversity in Zelda: The Need for a Black Princess Zelda
Reason User Banned (Permanent): dismissing concerns surrounding racism and representation, user in junior phase
Thanks for saying what I feel (I'm not black by the way). Zelda represents somekind of European vision of the kingdoms. So it's natural they physicaly went for a white skin. The kingdom of Hyrule has always had a diverse population, and one of them is the Gerudo. This call for a "black" Zelda would have been understandable if the game/series could be labeled as "racist" or under representing "minorities". But the world doesn't revolve around the US, and where I come from, we don't have a problem as the US seems to have (and historicaly had) so maybe I'm not the best suited to understand this request. But as a gamer, I'm against it.

GamingThread [Zelda Dungeon] Diversity in Zelda: The Need for a Black Princess Zelda
Reason User banned (1 month): dismissing concerns around representation
While I think a black player character from Nintendo or a black Zelda would be neat, it is ridiculous that a text about Legend of Zelda, a Japanese series made by (mostly) Japanese people, says America/n 9 times and fails to mention Japan (or even Africa) even once. It does show that many Americans, no matter how progressive they claim to be, still see the rest of the world as only existing to serve and cater to the US.
