Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Dismissing Concerns Around Transphobia
I cant defend this guy because his views are horrible but seeing the Twitter/internet mob come after this whole game scares me As you all know, it takes hundreds of people to make any AAA game like this these days. After many years of wishing and hoping for an open world game from the long dormant HP game series, I would hate to see this project canceled because of a backlash That would also mean hundreds of game devs out of a job and means of income during a pandemic. Not to mention the fact that Avalanche barely survived post Disney. The WB acquisition saved them

Bro, you're all looking for reasons to not buy this game, hum? I don't give a shit about what those guys say on Twitter, what J.K says about trans people. I wait for more than 15 years for a true RPG in the Harry Potter universe, and for the first, time I'll finally have this game. It's a dream coming true and no one will take this from me.

Reason User Warned: please do not post videos like this, even if your intent is to make sure people do not take them seriously
Since I have seen his videos posted here a few times and Hoeg Laws bad take on this. He thinks people like Troy who have ideas you disagree with shouldn't be canceled and GG has some sexist people in it, but there take on gaming journalism is spot on. We even get namedrop at the end. Not endorsing these views, just wanted to make people aware, that he is a shithead.

Red Text When we verify a rumor we normally never elaborate publicly on what evidence we're shown, in order to protect the careers of the people involved, and to ensure that others can feel confident in approaching us with information. In this case however we have no choice but to be more specific because our own integrity has now been called into question.

I voted yes because it is disappointing to be paying 79.99 CAD for a game that looks like that. I don't think it looks awful, but boy does it look lazy. The whole "faithful" remake means nothing if it has an automatic experience share as well.

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.

EtcetEraThread I don’t think cancel culture exists and we should stop giving the term credence.
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Inflammatory Generalization
IMO "Cancel culture" is turning into the same thing that "Deep state" already was: a simple way for people with working brains to tell who is full of crap/brainwashed. If they say it, they are either full of crap, or brainwashed. If you have a working brain, it is meaningless, like "lion banana" or "bleep blorp blurp" or "toboggan tarantula."

EtcetEraThread NY Governor Andrew Cuomo accused of sexual harassment by ex aide
Reason User banned (1 month): Conspiracy theories about sexual misconduct allegations, thread derailment
Please don't ban me or dogpile me for my naïveté of this, but is it me, or does the timing of these accusations seem suspicious? I happen to agree with this person below from Twitter. This is probably a ploy by Trump in order to get Cuomo out so that he & the GQP can get a Trump stooge such as Lee Zeldin as Governor to pardon state charges against Trump in 2022. The problem for Trump however, is that Kathy Hochul would most likely take over if Cuomo resigns. Cuomo's still a scumbag at the end of the day for keeping those COVID deaths from a nursery home a secret.
