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.

This was beautiful, not only did Smash only get about 5-6 minutes of screentime, but it was a character that would trigger Smash fans beyond belief. It was a good day today.

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.

Yes, after spending so much money on their console and subscription service I was expecting better than this. If that makes me entitled I guess I am, but personally I think there's some corporate boot licking happening in this thread.

GamingThread Epic Games is acquiring Tonic Games Group, parent company of Mediatonic (Fall Guys dev)
Reason User Banned (1 Day): Platform Warring; Thread Derail
It’s dead in terms of being a good game without a bunch of micro transactions shoved down your throat and a forced Epic account. It’s not even on Steam anymore. They don’t care about the quality of the game, only the money they can make and the people they can force to use their shitty launcher that doesn’t even have a fifth of the features Steam does. I’d rather use Origin than their filth

GamingThread The word "Gamer"
Reason User Warned: Inflammatory Commentary: Please Don't Use Gendered Slurs
If you feel Gamergaters co-opted it and spoiled it then do something to take it back. Giving it up because someone took it over? I never understood that mentality. It's like in the UK when people who fly the British or English flag are seen as racists/suspect because the flag is also used by nationalists! I mean... WTF?! Why the fuck should we give it up cos a bunch of cunts also decided to use it? I also find one of the other reasons behind not using "gamer" to be supremely dumb: That's not how language works!

Reason User Banned (3 Days): Advocating Piracy
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.
