GamingThread Switch emulator Yuzu now boots Pokémon Let's Go
Reason User Warned: Equating emulation to piracy
And that's fine but do you really think that the majority of people that will be using this emulator will be going through the trouble of hacking their Switch, buying a game and ripping a ROM when they could just easily download it for free? Of course there are innocent people that just want to perhaps play at 60fps and with actual AA in this game but don't kid yourself in thinking that you are the majority in doing this. It's a game that game out yesterday and is in a semi-playable state, sorry but piracy should be a discussion here same as the fact that it's impressive that they got it bootable and semi-playable so fast. If it's a new Game Boy emulator and a video of playing Tetris then that is fine but this is a little close to the line for my taste.

GamingThread Switch emulator Yuzu now boots Pokémon Let's Go
Reason User Banned (3 days): Equating emulation and piracy after prior warning.
But most people using emulators don't own the games. That's the entire point. Nobody is saying you in particular are pirating anything, nor anybody else owning the games. Maybe it's just a matter of personal experience. If you hang out online with a lot of emulation-fans who get their copies to just paly the game they bought with better resolution or other nice additions you could easily get annoyed at people saying emulators are enabling piracy. As someone who knows 15+ people in real life that use emulators and not a owned a single game they played through said emulators nor had any Nintendo console since the SNES, I see people who go online and act like emulation is this totally legal thing that people totally use in legal ways being disingenuous as fuck. Yes, it's in itself not illegal. No, most people don't buy their games before they use an emulator to play it.

GamingThread Switch emulator Yuzu now boots Pokémon Let's Go
Reason User Banned (1 day): Equating emulation to piracy
I'll happily join the "omg it's piracy" crowd to point out that this will overwhelmingly be used for piracy and nothing else. There's a reason these emulators always use the latest and most popular games in their showcases, and it's not to show off the accuracy of the emulator.

Outraged just to be outraged. Pathetic, honestly. Absolutely no information to go on whether she was correct about them or not and you just scream "Racism". Whether or not she broke company policy is irrelevant. That doesn't make it immoral and certainly not racist. The version of events you choose to believe are everybit a "hypothetical" as mine because you have absolutely not proof to the contrary. Not even Chipotle corpoate denies what she said.

GamingThread Rapper 2 Milly plans to sue Epic Games over use of his dance Milly Rock in Fortnite
Reason User Warned: Arguing in bad faith.
I wonder if the shirtless kid from the meme video where he dances in his room will also sue Does that not also count as whitewashing and erasing culture btw or does it only become that important if the dance is popular in modern hip hop ? What about the guy DJ'ing and pumping his fist? The guy doing the 70s jig? Seems like people conveniently ignore all but two or three dances in the game in order to make the argument way more serious than it really needs to be. How about we debate the compensation of content creators, and not pretend like Fortnite was created as first blood in the race wars. Edit: How am I arguing in bad faith? How is this an infraction?

It's a common topic online, especially since the advent of YouTube has allowed people to see these images. A few people have come forward to share their own testimonies about what saw in the labs, where the original photos were processed.

This goes to show how much games are just like politics: since most people on this site are affiliated to the Sony party, they'll blindly justify anything their party leader/president says. it's absolutely crazy.

GamingThread Cyberpunk 2077 named Most Wanted Game at 2018 Golden Joystick Awards
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Inflammatory Attacks on Staff
Again, using that logic you can basically post everything a company does in all of their threads. CDPR donates to charity? But their tweets! CDPR game wins an award? But their tweets! CDPR game is releasing soon? But their tweets! CDPR earnings reports? But their tweets! There is a reason why rules about thread derailment and offtopic posting are made. It prevents threads from turning into the above mess. You only need to visit any emulation thread, as it always becomes "this is piracy" thread. This stuff used to be strictly moderated, but the moderation here seems to be poor. If you said "this is gamefaqs", I'd have believed you. Regardless, that doesn't let you derail any and all threads about the company. It's against the rules of this forum. If you feel so passionately about the situation, make a new thread about that topic.

GamingThread Hi-Rez proved we spent almost a year hearing pointless complaints about Switch hardware
Reason User Banned (2 weeks): Extensive history of 'lazy dev' rhetoric and port begging
They announced today that on top of Paladins, SMITE and Realm Royale are coming to the Switch; - they all hit 60 fps, - they will support Cross play and Cross progression for Switch, Xbox One and PC. - they showed that it's totally possible to support 4 platforms. - they added highly requested features like gyro controls. (and brought that feature even on PS4) Which reminded me that for an entire year we've heard that it's tough to support 4 platforms, that Switch hardware maybe can't handle games like Overwatch (despite it runs on shittier PCs),... And here we are with a company significantly smaller than those delivering no big deal. Food for thought.

GamingThread Pokemon Let's Go by Dunkey
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Dismissing racism
This is completely subjective to whomever you're talking to. There's a lot of funny dunkey videos. Also in your video he did not use the n word with a hard r so I'm not too sure what the problem is here. If you're blaming him for using the N word while rapping. I'd also like to add this wasn't at anyone this wasn't at anyone alive or living this was a part of a song that he did for a video of his. If that was the case we would stop talking about anyone in any Quentin Tarantino movie, because they say all kinds of racial slurs there. Boy do I have stuff in store for you. There's beyond plenty of rappers out there whom are also white who use the n word. I'm gonna be safe to assume as well you don't like rap. I once again don't see how him in a satirical setting making fun of people and parts of a game (I'm talking about the Sleeping Dogs part). Is racist? He's a "comedian" so he's going to do some stuff that some people don't like.

GamingThread PlayStation will not host a conference for E3 2019 (No off site event either)
Reason User banned (2 days): platform wars rhetoric
cant quote your post. not sure whats going on with era today. MS fucking sucks. They are shit. You can look at my post history to see how much I loathe Phill Spencer and MS's first party output this gen. Hell, just take a look at my posts from earlier this week complaining about nintendo's first party output. Sony is different. I compare Sony to Sony from last gen. Sony is the best first party publisher of the last decade or so. And they are taking a year off. This is troubling. I dont know how else to say this. All the games you mentioned above are games that are 2019 titles. But let's assume for arguments sake that some of these will get pushed to 2020. That still leaves five exclusives for the last two years of the PS4's life cycle. PS3's final two years are as follows.We can argue the quality of these titles but even in 2012 they had stuff to show for PS3's 2020. Next year, they will have nothing. Sony makes a billion dollars from PS+ alone this gen. they are making billions every year. last gen they lost billions and still acquired new studios. and then boom, started closing down one studio after another and that is why they have fucking nothing to show next year. And again, you can call it nonsense but tell me what you expect them to release in 2020 and 2021 for the PS5 besides the games i have already mentioned. Horizon 2, GT7, Spiderman 2, and God of War 2. two exclusives a year. And thats the best case scenario. Everyone here is saying that games like TLOU 2 which was revealed at PSX 2016 wont make the 2019 release. Death Stranding which was revealed in E3 2016 wont receive a 2019 release. Ghosts which was revealed at Paris Game Show in October 2017 wont receive a 2019 release. So why are we so confident that games that will be revealed at E3 2020 will come out in 2021 just a year later? bottom line is that missing a year is ba

GamingThread "Video Game Preservation" is a Mere Pretext for Piracy... and a Poor One at That
Red Text It is against our terms of service to advocate piracy, so I don't think that this sort of topic can be productive on this particular forum, given the prohibitions present if someone was to take the counter view to the OP's. While the opening post makes sure not to equate emulation or games preservation in general with piracy, that isn't the case for some of the replies in this thread, and I am seeing name calling on both sides now. Hence the lock.

GamingThread Pokemon Let's Go Eevee playable on Yuzu (Progress Report)
Red Text Mod Edit: Misuse of red text removed.
By now most people should be aware that Pokemon Let's Go has leaked about 2/3 days ago. Earlier today one of the devs of Yuzu made some progress on getting Let's Go Eevee to work with Yuzu. Apparently the PR is rather hacky so it hasn't been merged yet but give it a few days and it should be on canary available for everyone. On top of that Mario Odyssey is now more playable than ever, it just recently (couple of days) got a speed boost, and the game is 100% completable. The emulator is progressing at an insane speed and with Smash Bros. Ultimate coming out next month i can imagine their Patreon is gonna explode and progress is gonna become even faster.

EtcetEraThread "Your Lyft driver is 93 minutes away" eat a fucking dick
Red Text Mod edit: edited out personal information
Context I scheduled a Lyft pickup at 12PM or so, so the driver can take me home from work at around 9. Fee is like $9 for what amounts to a 10 minute or so drive which is cool. High time for me to go home and I get the message in the OP. This driver is all the way in fucking Columbus GA coming to pick me up for a $10 drive that I gotta wait for an hour and a half I cancelled and got another driver within the span of 5 minutes, free. But now I'm paying more due to the rate changing as the day passes. Its not the money I'm mad about but the fact that I probably got to wait another day to air a grievance/complaint out with Lyft about the poor driver curation (because Lyft doesn't have a traditional call line for customer service and I got put in a ticket for a response.) So yeah I'm big mad rn
