GamingThread I still can’t believe you can *spoilers* in Persona 5 lol.
Reason User Banned (3 Weeks): Concern trolling a sensitive topic
I can't tell if people are being serious or not. It's a game, at the end of the day it's a dam game. It's not real. Don't play if it offends you. There is far worse in anime, movies, music, books etc. Also in the game, you don't have to romance any of them, you can just be friends. If you chose to romance, then maybe it's on you and not the game. Persona presents challenges of morality, maybe we are the ones failing.

GamingThread I still can’t believe you can *spoilers* in Persona 5 lol.
Reason User banned (permanent): inflammatory false equivalence
Perhaps this is an unpopular opinion, but I see nothing wrong with allowing writers to tell the stories they wish to tell. None of the characters in any of the Persona games REQUIRE being romanced. I was always fond of telling others, "If you don't like gay marriage, don't have one." This is the odd corrolary, where if you don't want to flirt/romance a character, then... don't? I see nothing wrong with allowing for literary license and think Atlus does a GREAT job of incorporating uncomfortable realities into it's storylines. Guess what, sex workers (Kawakami) are a thing. People can have questions about gender identity (Naoto) and agorophobes (Futaba) need love, too. My wife and I played the original P5 together and we both connected with Futaba. Different people can see the game/situation differently--which is what makes the choices and options worthwhile. We could use MORE choice, not less. Censoring stories just because you don't like them is like burning books. Let the storytellers tell their stories.

GamingThread The Last of Us Part II is probably my only reason to be excited about being alive right now
Reason User Banned (2 weeks): Insensitive commentary in a sensitive thread
If you have good overall health you are blessed anyway. Do you have physical pain? Think of people that aren't born healthy and think of you how lucky you are to live in a functional body without pain. That reason alone should make you think positive about life. I used to be slightly depressed from time to time, but listen, being depressed is a stupid “habit“. The more you are depressed the more you are getting depressed. It sounds stupid, but it is the truth. Be happy, there is no reason to be depressed. Pro tip: start a work out routine.

Yes dozens of posters collectively wagging their finger at John for not being aware of a rather small controversy, questioning even his morals can be massively frustrating. There's zero doubt in my mind that the community could have behaved a bit more reasonably considering who the person in question is.

GamingThread Technical Warning for Ion Fury on Xbox One (all consoles?)
Reason User Banned (3 Months): Downplaying bigotry, misrepresenting moderation; prior serious ban for dismissing sexism
If you ever glance at OT or threads like the Women's Designs thread, you'll realize that Era is basically that. You can't get around discussing something here without the ancillary details being brought up and expanded as if they're what the game is all about. A content creator should be allowed to produce content without a forum thinking that it means a full endorsement of the messaging issues of a game. There's a reason that many, many devs and creators who were here when Era started have left.

GamingThread Digital Foundry - Ion Fury - Every Console Tested - How An Ancient Engine Stresses Current-Gen CPUs
Reason User banned (1 month): inflammatory whataboutism and concern trolling over bigotry
No, forcing people to discuss any one point of a discussion is wrong and doesn’t mean that at all. I said all my 2 cents on the patched out transphobic stuff when it happened. Personally I don’t see a lot more to say about it. My opinion is do not destroy what is probably 90% decent people (especially the porters, but surely the entire company doesn’t know about specific assets and hidden comments in a game!) for the bad seeds, and the bad company heads. It all eventually comes down to no ethical consumption under capitalism, but I think it’s worse to punish a lot of people just to maybe hit a few that are actually bad. So I think praise of Ion Fury is most ethical when not burdened with caveats. additional point of perspective - at my company, the CEO is an unabashed Republican, and he says horrible stuff (Anti workers rights stuff) and expects people to laugh at it. I know one of my coworkers is a Republican and I know the majority are not. But if one of them did something horrible in secret, why should I be punished for that?

Yeah that Steph streamer shouldnt be serving on the council. You cant have someone who is hating and shutting down people due to who/what they are. How can you expect her to bring up issues you raised to her if you happen to be a white straight dude there is a high chance based on what she has been saying that things wouldnt be done right. Seems she wont be there much longer based on what Cohh is saying anyway cant wait for her to blame every other facit of this all and take 0 blame for it. Holy shit at the clips of her "power tripping" then backtracking lmao. This person is not ok.

Reason User Banned (1 Week): Off topic commentary causing a derail
She’s made some stupid statements so people are piling on her. There probably is also an aspect of transphobia behind it. The bigger reason she is getting attention though is probably because she is an otherkin, which is something I never knew about. From a quick google search: “ are a subculture who socially and spiritually identify as not entirely human.” I saw a video of her acting like a deer and immedietly turned it off, couldn’t watch it all.

The game is meh. Combat controls suck, the open world sucks, the main character voice acting is...hmm. after buying at $15, I got into the 2nd map/level/area I put it down cause it was very boring. It's not dickish for them to not devalue the game. It's more dickish for everyone to rave about the world. Literally those question marks are Ubisoft level but Poland is not pretty whatsoever so even the scenery sucks.

Reason User warned: Platform warring
How's that working for Xbox ? Putting Bottom of barrel games like Bleeding Edge huh. Thanks but no thanks, I'd rather keep spending 60 bucks on big production games without seeing them losing their quality over time over fear of subscription bullshit. Just give gamepass a few years and let's see how it goes. The Truth is quite simple : Nintendo and Sony can afford no to do a service a la gamepass while Microsoft is desperate and probably losing money on this.

GamingThread Digital Foundry - Ion Fury - Every Console Tested - How An Ancient Engine Stresses Current-Gen CPUs
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Equating hate speech with political views
If you already know how the game dev moves chances are someone else can find that same info, everyone in here has access to google. DF has a specific role and it's not in the political commentary area. Let these dudes do the tech thing and leave it at that. If you are disappointed they don't do that then find a new tech reviewer that does or go to a reviewer that does a proper full context review of the way the dev moves and how it relates to the game design or content of the game. John y'all put out hella interesting tech first, benign videos and I would like it to stay that way. If one of these devs was a whole ass, I'm sure we could simply Google search their names and get a wealth of YouTube commentary and other social stuff detailing it.
