GamingThread Microsoft confirms they’re investing in gaming, big focus
Reason User Warned: Ignoring Modpost + System Wars
Read your post history and you outright said you had no interest in playing Horizon only weeks ago, after saying it’s over rated and all your posts are in Xbox treads. So it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know you don’t play any switch games either since you apparently don’t like a game you never played. But grouped it with SMO and BOTW. So it’s doubtful you played those either. All over rated games apparently. Enjoy Sea of Thieves tho I guess?

GamingThread Xenoblade Chronicles 2 shipped 1.31 million units. Best-selling "Xeno" title ever?
Reason User Banned (1 Day): Advocating piracy.
Piracy is hardly an indicator of lost sales. People download just because they can. I know someone who downloads all the movies and shows at 4k blueray lossless, just because he can. That was literally his reason. Most pirates who like the game tend to buy it as well so it usually helps games a bit instead. As a pirate who downloads games I would never pay for normally and buy the games if i do like them, I agree with that idea.

GamingThread Xenoblade Chronicles 2 shipped 1.31 million units. Best-selling "Xeno" title ever?
Reason User Warned: Don't peddle conspiracy theories on the forum.
Thats... debatable, we have no idea how much the first Xenoblade sold, as in the region it sold the most in, gamestop fudged the shipment numbers after the first shipment so they could sell 'used' games at 90 dollars a pop instead of new games at 60. The game was so hard to find, and thought for so long to not even be coming stateside, it's piracy rate of well over a million puts it in the category of one of the most pirated games of all time, at a quarter of modern warfare 2 at the top of the list, which sits at 4 million. Anyone want to compare popularity levels behind one of the biggest call of dutys and a Japanese rpg on 'The fucking two gamecube duct taped together' system? As for the sales, Whether or not that is actually impressive depends on what the numbers are. A game that sells 10 copies sold 10x more than it's predecessor that only sold one, but that' not really worth much. Of course there isn't a single person at Nintendo who has any idea what Xonoblade could be selling. There wasnt a single person working at Nintendo who had any idea what xenoblade was, what they had, or who expected Xenoblade to ever sell period with the first game. It's almost like we had to have an entire campaign calling Nintendo out on their clueless out of touch shit to even get the game, And Nintendo being complete fuckups left money all over the table. It's hilarious that the whole reason anyone, ANYONE in na can even be a fan of xenoblade in the first place is because of people not being corporate worshippers, and pointing out Nintendo dropped the ball.... And then you look at this. Nintendo just xenobladed again.

GamingThread [RUMOR] Red Dead Redemption II Information Coming Thursday
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Spreading misinformation in this thread
This will be a very complicated thread so bare with me and I am not a lunatic. Timeline: So on March 28th, GTANet (GTAForums Admins and mods) posted without any further context: Now from this post, we can conclude that they were on their way to attend a Rockstar related event in London. Mind you this was posted the Now, here's where things get a little more juicy: A few weeks back, a user posts this thread on the GTAForums saying that he/she saw R* with members of the press near Usher Hall in Edinburgh. He later says that the presentation took place and goes on to describe what he heard from his friend "Deep Bawbie" that was at the venue... "15 minute movie" "Members of the press asking for icecream" "Press with Jetpacks" I'll come back to the Jetpack thing later. Now of course, we all thought he was a troll but if that were to case, why was the thread not locked yet? Many questioned the OP but the moderators came to his defense and started communicating with riddles. Some of which has yet to be solved. A riddle was solved though that deciphered "jetpacks" as "press bags" like the one seen in the tweet. After a while, some members started to think it was a hoax and that nothing even occurred at Usher Hall but earlier today, the same Admin that posted the tweet (And the same member that possibly saw the game in action), posted on the forums saying this: Thankfully, this wasnt as hard to decipher as the other hints and riddles and shortly after, a member translated the true meaning behind that post: Lots of the same mods and Admins that were teasing imminent information liked the post seemingly confirming that it was the answer to the riddle. So that concludes this. News coming Thursday? (If this thread is too weird or anything feel free to lock it mods. But there is credence)

GamingThread 3DS Homebrew for GBA, should i? Is there a risk?
Reason User Warned: Advocating piracy.
To clear things up first, im really not going forward yet to get that done. Its something im considering, cause i want GBA games injections, and since there is no way to get GBA games on portable ( other to find a lucky shot a good gba sp used, and also find the games ). I would throw my money to simply get the ambassador program for some GBA on my New 2DS XL, or simple being able to purchase them on the eshop. Oh and there are these gba clone like the revo k101, but im not sure it can do the same job as GBA inject. So i came to the conclution that the only possible way is to mod my 3DS, but im worried. Can i get banned? I dont want my account blacklisted. And once homebrew is installed and you put your games in there, can homebrew get deleted and the gba inject still works? ( like i dont want to have access of the free game shop, i wouldnt feel personaly honest of getting game like without paying... ok yes, the gba are not paid, but getting recent games , it would cross a line i dont find acceptable ). Only thing i want to get done in my system is gba inject. So, is it worth it? Some people are offering this service for a fee, and im considering it.

GamingThread Thurrott.com: Microsoft is making significant investments / financial backing to go all-in on gaming
Reason User Banned (1 week): Unwarranted hostility. Calling a female developer a 'fem nazi'. Account still in junior phase.
Microsoft has talent..plenty of it..but talent means nothing if you have poor leadership, direction, allocation, management etc. Halo 5 was apparently a cluster fuck when it was in development having to be scrapped and redone during the dev cycle, and Sea of Thieves was apparently so bad that half of the team didn't even know what they were making. I give Rod Fergusson credit, dude is an awesome studio lead, Gears 4 was steller and the amount of content they throw at it is crazy, I think the Coalition can do great things if given the opportunity to. But Bonnie Ross needs to fuck right off, she's nothing but a fem nazi, wish Josh Holmes could of been studio head instead of her. Remember that Guerrilla games made an above average shooter but when given the change they made a banger that was critical and commercial hit. 2. Contrary to popular belief, Sony's own studios (not third party but ones they actually own) range from mediocre - God tier. Santa Monica, Naughty Dog and Guerrilla have all succeeded this gen, Sucker Punch put out a decent Infamous Second Son, PolyPhony put out an extremely underwhelming Gran Turismo ..then there's Knack.. Lets not pretend that Sony has 10 studios that constantly put out GOTY caliber games. They have better management and leadership, they've done a better job of cultivating their studios but they also have a ton of 3rd party support and exclusives that Microsoft needs to get a hold of. Sony has tons of Japanese support as well that MS lacks. 3. Lionhead wanted to make a grittier Fable 4, but this was when Phil Harrison was around and wanted every Xbox game to be online and multiplayer focused probably so they can get that sweet microtransaction money 4. Right, I agree but this was a different Xbox and different Microsoft...not saying everything is going to be roses and sunshine but at the very least we can't apply what happened 5-10 years ago to Microsoft's current vision for Xbox....

Reason User banned (1 day): Linking to illegal content
Red Text [MOD EDIT: Don't link to illegal copyrighted content]
Nice that the game's not really affected, it's just harder to get a hold of it now. Basically you need to find the old version of the game on a different site, then patch it with their patcher that they still offer on their site (so I guess that is in the clear in regards to assets/whatever included) to 0.6. For now the still works even if it's not linked on their site, so you can still use that if you don't want to bother with getting the old version and patching it. I've deleted the game since it wasn't my thing from the little I've played of it, I had never played Halo multi player before though I had the PC CE, just saying.

As modern emulation situations improve, I tend to sell off older collections. Doesn't stop it being painful, but it has meant I can keep my head above water buying new games..

Ditto my N64 carts for a 64Drive. Ditto my GC collection once I sorted Nintendont on my Wii U. Also sold all PS1, GB/GBC, and all earlier 8/16bit games once I had an Nvidia Shield TV - near perfect emulation through Retroarch of just about everything? The only games I'm now actively collecting / hoarding are OG Xbox, PS3/360, PS4, Vita, DS/3DS and Switch.

with all due respect. you must be full of shit then PS2 library is the greatest of all consoles ever made. quality is amazing and so is quantity. we had a perfect amount of every genre. Xbox 360 has the second best library probably (I know PS3 had the big exclusives later. but the xbox had a lot of games that were not even released on PS3 during the first ~4-5 years because it was difficult to make games for PS3 and it came out a year later) also not just because of the quantity. PS2 had relatively very little shovelware even compared to last gen or this gen (digital crap).

Awesome news to see the Switch opened like this, particularly since the form factor is so great for playing all sorts of games.
