GamingThread OT | Octopath Traveler | Octopus Thread
Reason User Warned: Personal attacks
I’ve always been iffy on Schreier’s style of journalism, despite the praise he gets here. You don’t work at Kotaku without having that sensationalist “edge”. This post almost seems like he’s desperately taking pleasure in establishing a narrative. Using the phrase “reactions” here is disingenuous, he’s doing this to get a rise. EDIT: Warning was totally fair, I was a little too personal, just not a big fan of how the criticism was phrased.

The video I watched showed pbp files being dropped into the transfer folder for use with bleemsynce. The voiceover mentioned bin and cue files working but didn't explain how and I guess I didn't realize what it meant since I havent dealt with PS1 emulation before. So I just unzipped a game that I downloaded as a zip and it game me one cue folder and like 15 bin files, how do i add these? Keep them in a folder bundled together, or just dump them all into the transfer folder loose?

GamingThread Transgender dev targeted by hundreds of letters requesting her termination; CEO nearly complies
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Downplaying and trying to rationalise a hate movement and bigotry. Junior account.
So sorry to bump this topic but I just want to apologize to everyone, I was incredibly intoxicated at the time and made a fool of myself. Was too embarrassed to even read back all the stuff I wrote because my nonsensical ramblings were so cringeworthy. Ban was extremely justified, well done moderators. Ive always been too afraid to touch these topics about gamergate, just because there has always been an uncomfortable amount of anger present. So after a little (a lot) of liquid courage I apparently conquered my fears... turned out to be a really bad idea. And since I cant disgrace myself any further at this point, and the topic of tolerance is important to me. I figure, lets go for broke. Look, people change at all ages, not even just teens. Just over the last 15 years, people of all generations, faiths, backgrounds have . This idea that prejudice is set in stone from an early age, let alone any age, isn't supported by any evidence. Additionally, if you actually want to make a change, and reduce prejudice. You shouldn't be shunning these people from your community, . While im fairly ignorant on the whole gamergate movement, I have definitely noticed a rise in what appears to be sexism, racism etc. amongst gamers (which gamergate is apparently a proxy for), and it is an issue I do care deeply about. Which is why I have tried to engage with these people at times to understand them. And as worthless as anecdotal evidence is, they really don't appear to be bigots. They are primarily concerned with "SJWs" trying to change their games. Its simply a fear of change, which I think everyone can relate to. You know, you goto college or move out from your parents for the first time... there is an inherent fear of the unknown. We all experience it to some degree. Either way, I don't think the world is doomed. And I think its important to show tolerance, even to those who are intolerant if you genuinely want to make a difference. Truly evil people are few and far between, imo. Anyhow, that's my hot take. You are free to disagree with it. Just wanted to try to promote a little compassion for your fellow man. Currently undecided if im too embarrassed to ever post here again, so if you reply to this message and don't get a response.... that's probably why.

It seems people literally don't know what I am talking about. It's almost like no one remembered what it was like with an Ethics department in the 70's and 80's. And what did. Your mistake is assuming that Ethics Departments are Progressive, when all through out history they are Conservative with a capital C. Do you know that in old films, women are not allowed to sit on beds without at least one foot on the floor at all times? And that there are time limits (in seconds) on how long a kiss could last in a single film shot? Those were invented by the wonderful Ethics Department.

you guys need to 1. learn to differentitate between harrassment and justified criticism. 2. read that post again. i never said harrassment is justifiable. most of the noise during NMS launch was NOT harrassment, most of that was people calling out Sean for lying: "hey, i think its bullshit that you lied to sell your game". what sean is essentially doing in this interview is exaggerating the amount of harassment he got while downplaying the shit he pulled.

Reason User Warned - Console Warring & Generalizations
Since it appears to be more important to the XB faithful, at least based on the meltdowns, I think it's about two things; being bitter about how this gen began, and dreading the possibility of it happening again, secondly, as it seems unlikely the XB platform could sell more worldwide (without PS3 level blunders), it's the only "victory" they can hold on to. The latter also applies to the cheering of studio acquisitions, while maintaining that they'd be anti-consumer in Sony's case.

GamingThread Next-gen PS5 and next Xbox speculation launch thread |OT5| - It's in RDNA
Reason User Banned (1 day): Misinformation about a member of the forum
His track record is far from perfect though. In 2017 he said that Xbox wouldn't have any extra funding, that we should expect things to be the status quo like they were just let the ship slowly sink. This lead to another false claim: That in that year Ms was making no new partnership with 3rd parties (something that Phil debunked a few months later saying that they did signed some stuff in 2017, but haven't show yet) I even remember calling him out on that one because there was no possible way he could've know that. This also led to the false claim that: Playground's action rpg game wouldn't be published by Ms. Then a few months ago all the reports showed that Ms was behind the growth of the second studio and even when they were bought all the interviews they made say Ms was in for their 2nd game right from the start. And I also remember a few days later from his claim Gobo studio announced a partnership with Ms. Turned out to be a turd f2p forza mobile game, but still was a new partnership when he said there wasn't none. He also hinted a lot that Halo Wars 2 bombed, only to have a few months later that the game was actually very successfully digitally, something that also disproves another claim he made a lot on the old forum: That he had sales data for win store and that they were so abysmal that Ms was spinning data as hard as they could regarding some mildly impressive PC users engagement (IIRC that the first play anywhere releases were seeing 30% of sales and user engagement on Pc) ----- My point with all that? We should never take a insider's opinion as gospel, just because we don't know the extent of what they know or how up to date that info is. Because even with a pretty good track record there will be some missed stuff. That's one thing I like how Klobrille handles his leaks at least. He always explains the extent of how he got this info, so you know that the possibility exists but may not come from fruition. I wish more insiders were like that instead of trying to paint as they are the ones to know it all. If he indeed knew Lockhart was canceled a whole 6 months or more ago good for his sources, thought I think there was some reports that Ms talked about Lockhart at gdc this year? ( Genuine question I don't remember if they were supposed to talk, or if they had talked about it).

You probably have very little knowledge about tech,architecture and gpu in general but going be the infos we have now, RDNA ≠ GCN. Which would basically mean 8TF could be equal to 11-12TF Vega in gaming and similiar to gtx 2070 +lot of console optimization. Maybe(very likely) you're PC elitist so i put it in other way -that 8tf NAVI is going to be more powerful than what 90% of gamers are using in their gaming PC. Funniest thing is that PC players were mocking 6 years ago about what "crappy" PS4 GPU will be and yet the best graphics 6 years later is still on console :) Edit:lol im reported.

GamingThread Next-gen PS5 and next Xbox speculation launch thread |OT5| - It's in RDNA
Reason User Warned: Platform Warring
Maybe the Sony fanboys don't like the thought of their exclusives being on PC instead of just their favorite plastic box, but the relatively underwhelming Navi reveal and things like ray tracing which are likely to be "half baked"/under-powered implementations on both PS5 and Scarlett make me quite happy as an Xbox guy to have the option to play next generation games on a higher end PC if I choose. I will definitely be buying a Scarlett because I enjoy console gaming on my big 4K TV most of the time, but I may just decide to do a PC build for the first time in years if I choose to play some Xbox first party games on occasion with some additional absurd level of ray tracing and such applied.
