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 PlayStation: Mark Cerny will provide a deep dive into PS5’s system architecture tomorrow at 9am PT
Reason User warned: Platform warring
I really don't think any of Sony's PR with the PS5 has had "extremely high engagement" Resetera is a huge bubble, there's a reason people mocked this site and GAF as a den of Sony fanboyism for over a decade. Nobody outside of enthusiasts are going to watch this stream, while normal press conferences/reveals actually garner wider audiences. This is especially true for revealing the intial details of the PS5 through a random ass article out of the blue,.

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.

GamingThread Gamingbolt: Xbox Series X’s BCPack Texture Compression Technique Reportedly Better than the PS5’s Kraken
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.

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 If Half-Life: Alyx succeeds in sales, can we expect Half-Life 3 to be in VR as well?
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.

Reason User banned (one week): dismissive commentary around a global pandemic
There are thousands of illnesses and diseases that are way worse and kill more people every year, yet no one cares. It's just hypocritical to say so now when one has had a lot of people in his family suffer other diseases that are infinitely worse, more widespread and media isn't saying anything. Money makes the world.go round.

Doesn't matter if you didn't care for them or like them, you KNOW they are good games. It's like the people who joke about COVID whenever you cough or sneeze. Congrats? I guess??? So original.

GamingThread Why is there no modern cop game?
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Dismissive rhetoric regarding systemic oppression in policing
Absolutely not trolling. To assume that cops are bloody thirsty monsters that thrive on ending or ruining lives is extremely narrow minded. The reality is the majority of them simply want to make their cities a safe place for themselves, their family, friends and simply fellow people. Are there a few bad apples that get joy out of beating someone up? Sure. But definitely not the majority of them by any measure. Wake up.

I can understand the original Xbox One with the PS4 but with the Xbox One X being underperforming I think they didn’t even bother with Xbox.
