GamingThread Japanese Games and Cultural Appropriation
Reason User banned (2 weeks): concern trolling
Japanese games take a lot of inspiration from other cultures, from myths, to history and clothing and armour design. The problem is most of their characters look Asian, which wouldn't be a big deal to me personally, but they fail to represent the actual people they're taking these influences from. For example Final Fantasy is steeped in Western mythos, the characters even have Western names, yet the majority of the characters are Asian and look like J-pop stars. Take Tifa for example, her name isn't Japanese, and she's from a town called Niflheim, yet is clearly Asian. Same with Cloud, and even Barret has a certain look to his face and lighter skin in the new remake. Aerith was stated to be made more Western but still looks Eastern in the face. And in FFXII they stated they were told to make Ashe distinctly not Japanese but still did in the end to appease the Japanese audience. However with her I'm not expecting her to look White, but Indian. The team took a trip there for cultural influence yet there seems to be no representation of their people. It extends to a lot of their games. I know a vast majority have anime artsyles, but even then, despite their brightly coloured hair, anime character have more Asian facial features with sharper eyes and smaller noses and chins. I just find it disingenuous when games like Fire Emblem have all these European inspired aesthetics and names yet everybody again looks like a pretty j-pop star. It's ok for characters to have bigger noses and differenr facial structures, Japan, as in the end most of the world and people your taking from do. I know Japan is xenophobic, but when looking through Bulbapedia at the new Pokemon, and seeing that NPCs on the routes you battle in the original Japanese version ALL have Japanese names despite the country being based on England I just laugh at their need to self insert into everything. Obivously this goes beyond games too. Stuff like the manga Magi with its Arabic influence yet features very little people with dark skin gets to me too. I just wanted to know if there's a reason for this and what your guys thoughts are? Obviously I'm not against Asian characters, in fact we need more of them from Western developed games, I just don't like the lack of representation of the people they take influences from. If the West developed a game, based on Japanese culture, myth, and geography yet all the characters, despite having Japanese names, were distinctly western there'd be massive uproar.

People are sheep. Quality doesn't matter anymore. Congrats to Game freak, TPC, and Nintendo for continuing to make millions off people that don't give a shit and just want whatever everyone else hypes up. Brand loyalty is the worst. Oh well. Sun and Moon are my last pokemon main series games. Time to move on to bigger and better things. It's beyond obvious the series is nothing more than a cheaply made product to continue printing money every year.

Reason User Banned (5 days): Lazy Dev Rhetoric, History of related behavior
Cheerleading the success of what is, objectively, a very low effort product is really problematic. It might be a fun low effort product. It might sell well as a low effort product. But it is still a low effort product.As opposed to being angry at those pointing out clear deficiencies in said game? Because ultimately that's what all of these posts are about "it sold well and I like it therefore you're wrong to criticise this game". Problem being the criticism of Sword and Shield is totally fair whether you emotionally like it or not. The criticism of GameFreak, especially for lying to the public, is also totally fair whether you emotionally like it or not. Feel free to buy the game. Feel free to enjoy the game. But that doesn't make any of the criticism of it any less valid.

This is all very true. But those delusional individuals will continue echoing off each other that one day all those things you highlighted and more will finally be the popular focus of PlayStation. This their safe space. This place likes to think of itself as the hub of ‘enthusiast’ (aka) A sophisticated cover up for weeb-boomer gamers who complain every week about bad pacing, hand holding, and whatever else on their allergy list for the hardcore when it comes cinematic focus games and their unfortunate popularity that will kill video games any day now... PS5 is doomed for the whole generation if it doesn’t launch with (99) JRPGs, (30) 8Bit indies, (20) 16Bit indies and the PS5 start up intro isn’t Kat standing awkwardly by a window as she’s welcoming us back.

GamingThread Stadia Review Thread
Reason User Warned: Hostility
Alucardx23 wanted me to ask you if you thought this was true or not "One thing that surprises me now that we know of Stadia's spec is the decision to cap at 30 frames per second. With a 10.7TF graphics core and fast, server-class CPU, we would expect the Stadia port of Assassin's Creed Odyssey to run at 60fps. Based on the results we're seeing here running the PC version at 60fps, latency should drop by 33ms. The Xbox One X version is already bafflingly high in latency terms, to the point where Stadia can match it. Based on the PC results, running at full frame-rate would actually see the streaming version surpass the Xbox game."

GamingThread Stadia Review Thread
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Hostility; prior ban for hostility
He probably won't answer because this is a perfect example of an extremely dishonest and lying human being. The simple example he's referring too is the Assassin's Creed Odyssey latency test made by no other than digital Foundry. This is what they said: "One thing that surprises me now that we know of Stadia's spec is the decision to cap at 30 frames per second. With a 10.7TF graphics core and fast, server-class CPU, we would expect the Stadia port of Assassin's Creed Odyssey to run at 60fps. Based on the results we're seeing here running the PC version at 60fps, latency should drop by 33ms. The Xbox One X version is already bafflingly high in latency terms, to the point where Stadia can match it. That was it. I showed this example to explain how cloud games can reduce the latency by increasing the framerate. This guy here won't admit to this simple latency test and Anyone that does the minimum amount of research should know this about framerate and input latency. On a 30fps game you will get a new frame every 33.3ms and on a 60fps game, you will get a new frame every 16.6ms, this is the shitty math he says I'm doing.

Yes, but that quote doesn't mean anything and doesn't add anything to your experience as a player in any way. It's just (bad) PR speak so I wonder, why? Just tell us what you said "The game is a succes, we're committeed to keep on supporting it etc" They stopped giving us real data, maybe it's time they stop giving us faux data as well. I mean come on, is ridiculous...MS is doing much better now so just give us sales numbers again. Or not, but then don't talk about millions this, millions that, this one sold better than the other one, which we also don't know how much it sold, and we don't know either if they mean at launch or first week or what. Why are they hiding the numbers? Makes me nuts lol

GamingThread 5 NextGen games that are already here!
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Trolling over multiple posts. Platform wars. History of similar behavior
My thread wasn't a troll thread at all. Yet, I get trolled for listing games I feel are next-gen already on the PC (obviously the features that consoles are lacking this gen are available on PC). I would love for every platform to have the same hardware specs, but that's just not going to happen. The PC is an agnostic hardware that can be built up with very high end up-to-date hardware at any time. It's a moving target. The consoles stay stagnant for years. There is nothing wrong with mentioning what I think games will look like for next-gen when their hardware specs are much more powerful than what we have now. Changing my point to what? I have opinions like everyone else does. I'm entitled to them. Why should I change my opinion to cater to people who are rude, don't know me and certainly can't describe what they consider "next-gen" details? I'm willing to engage in healthy conversation if we can put aside the silly behavior. I just shared what I felt looked like a great starting point to next-gen since these games have much more bells and whistles that would cause them not to run on current console hardware. The games coming for next-gen hardware will have some of these same algorithms. Creativity will always change. We welcome that.

Reason User banned (1 day): Modwhining over a series of posts
Dunno what you're on about it's not a conspiracy there are clear examples of this bias existing. It's clear as day that Gamefreak and Pokemon gets treated by different standards compared to Bethesda, Bioware and similar. Worse things have been said about those companies and have passed as normal, while people got warned and banned for way less egregious things that is fact and that is that. It is what it is. I don't care but people should know the bias that exist and work around it. And that's all I have to say about this. In the end it's just games so it's not even worth raising a stink about compared to how moderation fucked up with how they were judging ableism.This who is truly worse game is boring. It wasn't me that brought pub G into the discussion anyway I was just pointing out a difference. In the end I still find it funny why people are just pointing to the few really bad examples that Gamefreak surpasses instead of pointing towards all the amazing examples that gamefreak falls short off. People don't even have the courage to look at a game that sold 2-3 times less and compare(Dq11) instead the bar has to be as low as fire emblem(speaking from a production value level not the actual quality of the games themselves).

It's honestly baffling, it makes no sense that the premier Stadia game that is guaranteed every founder will play would end up being upconverted 1080p at Medium quality. Makes me wonder if Destiny 2's rendering system was just so super-optimized for DirectX or something they couldn't get it running good in Vulkan. I really hate the "lazy developer" thing, it's rarely real, but in this case I honestly can't think of any other reason, since other games aren't having the same problems. I mean, if I were Google, I would have even delayed Stadia's launch if Destiny 2 was so bad.
