GamingThread PlayStation 5 System Architecture Deep Dive |OT| Secret Agent Cerny
Reason User banned (3 days): Platform warring
Every gaming console or PC is defined by the CPU, GPU and RAM. Storage is something that adds flexibility, but how a game plays and how a game looks is always going to be defined by the former.

GamingThread Xbox Game Studios |OT8| Ori and the Speed of the SSDs
Reason User banned (3 days): Trolling
Most are not really AAA titles of the scope that you expect from an AAA title. Which is normal because you cant magically create triple AAA games from small studios, and at the same time intend to regularly release new games (preferably each month) for the gamepass platform so people will stay subscribed, or non-subscribers may find more reason to subscribe. I am not sure if it is the right approach for MS because they in a way are competing against the many other AA games from which people can choose. And there are only few true triple AAA games released each year that attracts many gamers in a different way then most AA titles can. I think Bleeding Edge is a game in the catogory Matt Booty spoke of, a well crafted game more then an AA game imo, but when even eurogamer calls it gamepass filler, then I would doubt the current strategy of quantity over, I would not say quality, but giving more games from the ground up the time to mature and the time to add content to distinguish from the many other AA games.

GamingThread Bioshock: The Collection, Borderlands: Legendary Collection, XCOM 2 Collection coming to Nintendo Switch on May 29
Reason User warned: "lazy devs" rhetoric
Those games compress considerably with non ultra HD textures and most companies are just lazy as fuck when it comes to compression anyway, so those high numbers are not always indicative of a "true total." Every single Bioshock was one disc on last generation on the 360, which means we're talking less than 24 GB total. This is absolutely something that could have been done with more work and effort, and if they're charging $50 for their collection, it sure as hell should be using the pricier carts because the collection still retails for like $20 max these days elsewhere. This isn't some ridiculous ask.

GamingThread NX Gamer: PS5 Full Spec Analysis | A new generation is Born
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Console wars
There is no doubt in my mind they tested @ 1.8. They would have tested at a variety of configurations, the 2GHz clock we surmised from the Github leaks was apart of that testing. And yes, they went above, Imagine where the conversation would currently be if Sony stayed at 2GHz/9.2TF. Again, 2.2GHz is not a move you make for your health. You make it because you're boxed in and need to eek out every shred of performance you can get. It's like overclocking a 1660 Ti to it's max or even beyond and then trying to say that it is practically identical to an RTX 2060, because of its newly adjusted core clock/teraflops. No, no it is not.

GamingThread What I actually said on Kotaku Splitscreen about the PlayStation 5's specs
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Trolling, platform warring, hostility; multiple prior bans for platform warring
Again, the hype that Jason is pushing should easily be supported by the titles Sony reveals. In less than a year all of this chatter about the ‘most innovative console in 20 years’ will have the software to show the true potential, or not. I just hope Jason isn’t as defensive in a year from now if the software doesn’t blow minds like he’s insinuating. For now, watching him go all in for Sony is amusing.

GamingThread NX Gamer: PS5 Full Spec Analysis | A new generation is Born
Reason User Warned: Console Warring
An actual falsehood. You think Sony clocked the PS5 GPU up so high for kicks and giggles? 36 CUs vs 52 CUs is a large, noticeable gap. It's not like the XSX GPU's clock of 1.8GHz is low. At 1.8GHz, PS5 comes out to 8.4TF At 2.0GHz, PS5 comes out to 9.2TF Clearly, Sony felt the need to up clocks to raise teraflops so they would compare more favorably, because both of the previous configurations are a major perception blow in the face of the XSX. No amount of denial from you lot will change this. Sony had no choice to be aggressive with clocks because the machine is lacking in grunt comparatively.

GamingThread Bleeding Edge Review Thread
Reason User Banned (2 days): trolling
You are correct with what you are saying. But Tameem has been the main vision behind most of their titles, especially the acclaimed ones. "Antoniades described creativity and narrative as "core" to the studio. The team emphasised story over gameplay, believing that if the game's story was well-written and intriguing, the quality of the gameplay would also improve since it would attract players to continue playing." What you're saying is correct but all the scores point to is that said Director's vision was purely gameplay and reviews point to that direction as not solving the game's issues. Not saying it is their fault. But from a reception perspective it's nowhere near the level they typically produce. There's no point in making an excuse for that. Chilled if you like it though? But how much better could this game have been with an actual story? Seems like it was just something cheap to add to Game Pass in truth.

GamingThread Gamingbolt: Xbox Series X’s BCPack Texture Compression Technique Reportedly Better than the PS5’s Kraken
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Platform Warring and Antagonizing Other Users; Prior Bans for Platform Warring
what is it at the moment with all these accounts with low post counts yet just shitting on the ps5 and promoting the series x in every next gen thread with nearly every post? is the same happening with People shitting on series x and promoting ps5 with low posts? you can spot them straight away, no avatar and clearly warring. we don’t know how 3rd parties will use the ssd until we see games or 3rd party devs openly speak about it. I can imagine rockstar might use it. Xbox x has a large power advantage over pro and you barely see many 3rd parties doing much with it Except for higher res at sometimes the cost of the performance.

GamingThread [SPOILERS] Am I the only one who is still seeing that huge plot hole in RE2 Remake? [SPOILERS]
Reason User Warned: Lazy Dev rhetoric
It’s lazy from the developers and goes to show why the original is still leagues above the remake. It’s a fun game, a good - even great game, but it pales in comparison to the wonderful aesthetics, music and design of the original. Don’t know why the devs didn’t implement the Zap system in the original, but it is what is.

Reason User Warned: Platform warring
GamingBolt trying to take the crown from wccftech for clickbait articles written by clueless journalists based on twitter snippets? There's something really desperate about the way some Xbox fans are going around, finding some buzzword term they don't understand, and trying to make it out to be some huge thing. If it's a huge thing, we will find out from Microsoft and the journalists actually competent enough to analyse it.

Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Platform Warring; History of Platform Warring
Hl alyx probably sealed that valve wont be going back to vr. Just checked and 8k concurrent players, ouch. Id never think a hl game could be a non-hype event but putting it on vr did the trick. Then we have that next gen consoles ignore vr. I guess there may be a psvr2, but still. Its just not really part of the discussion. Teraflops was the discussion.
