I honestly thought you guys were exaggerating until I just watched the video. fuck your police, I hope someone kills that pig. How can you literally kill someone so slowly in cold blood without any expression on your face. Stone cold serial killer

GamingThread Despite all the anime stuff, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is so good
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Condescending and dismissive commentary surrounding sexism
Not sure why the anime stuff would be seen as a negative feature. I get people get pissed when women are attractive and in revealing outfits but I think someone would have to be pretty disingenuous to say that the designs are . Maybe we don't like them, but they were masterfully done. One of the very few modern RPG's that has found a way to make grinding fun. I love it.

GamingThread Uncharted 4 is better than The Lost Legacy
Reason User banned (3 days): Needless hostility over a series of posts
Why do you sweaty motherfuckers not know how to say "I like X more" instead of "X is better"? Yes opinions are inherently subjective and you don't need to qualify every assessment with "imo" but I'm pressed as hell about this epidemic of disingenuous ass titles that come out looking for a fight. Just say you like UC4 more, don't turn it into a contest. God.

I'm sorry for Justin, he must be in so much pain, but the way he's acting is a little out of line. " I am just notifying you that a presence will be taking place on social media due to the lack of contact over nearly 2 months. " What the fuck The company is in the wrong, no doubt on that He is in the wrong too for how he's acting

GamingThread Should video game remakes/reboots change the ethnicity of the main character?
Reason User Banned (1 Month): Racism
No. Ellie is lesbian and should stay lesbian. Kratos is a big white guy and should stay a big white guy. Link is a guy and should stay a guy. Linkle was an amazing character because she was one and not just another mute Link. This is also why I think Ariel should stay white. I liked The Little Mermaid as a kid and I don't really like the fact they want to change her into a black woman. On the other hand if they made a sequel with for example her daughter as the main character, I would be fine with any ethnicity or even sexuality. Please don't change preexisting characters.

GamingThread Citra 3DS emulator reaches 100k+ installs on Android in 4 days
Reason User Banned (3 days): Advocating piracy
Wider ubiquity and accessibility to the library of Video Games is always the main thing I think of with emulation and hacked consoles. Piracy concerns are less important than that. A few lost sales is perfectly fine collateral damage for the inspiration and passions that can be lit for people who otherwise wouldn't have had access to the library. I'm still adamant that the most ardent Video Game pirates end up spending more money on videogames as a result of piracy than they would have otherwise because of the passion that is lit within them. The average videogame spend of a pirate is probably higher than the average of the average gamer, because pirates and enthusiasts heavily overlap.Why does it have to be such a dirty and negative angle you look at it from? Isn't it beautiful that 100,000 are playing 3DS games?

GamingThread Tim Rogers' 3 Hour Video Review of Final Fantasy VII Remake.
Reason User Banned (5 Days): Trolling, antagonizing another user with condescending remarks; prior bans for trolling
You were so enamored by the game, possibly nostalgic to boot in these troubling times, you did not care about playing a beta. And thats fine. Other people see the Early PS3 quality enviroments, and overly linear level design and overbloated story and think, damn, I hope the sequel upgrades the engine cause theres something truly special here.

Yeah it’s crazy since PS4 has hit $199 plenty of times and is still more powerful. Nintendo would make a killing at $199 as well.

GamingThread XenobladeDE dynamic resolution revealed: Handheld = 378p/540p Docked= 504p/720p
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Equating emulation with piracy
This is one hell of a hot-take right here. The problem is that you failed to realize the massive overhaul they did to the game: It isn't running on the Wii engine, it's running on a modified Torna engine. Why is it unoptimize? Because they're dedicating more resources to optimizing their newer project.Great. So I guess you'll just condone pirating Switch games then....The character models are one of the few things that have not aged well.

Reason User Banned (permanent): trolling, account in junior phase
This is why the democrats needed a better candidate. I voted for Trump last election but just cannot do it again with a clear conscious, unfortunately I also cannot vote for Biden for the same reason so I'll probably not vote for the 1st time in two decades

EtcetEraThread Was JOKER a bad movie with a great performance or was it a great movie and I just didn't get it?
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Inflammatory Accusations
Best movie of 2019. If you don’t get it I think that says more about you than the movie. What’s there not to get? It’s just a Joker origin movie which people tried too hard to build fake outrage around. Some people on here even seemed like they actually wanted this movie to cause a mass shooting just so they could say I told you so. It’s pathetic. It’s just a Joker movie.

GamingThread I've made up my mind, and I will never buy or play another game that has micro-transactions
Reason User banned (1 week): shill accusations, hostility over multiple posts
Because you talk like someone who's a fucking shill. If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it looks like a fucking duck. I just call it like it is. You don't see outside your own little worldview, and don't care or are not willing to see the damning effects that these types of practices can have on individuals. The video I posted goes into details about situations where people with gambling addictions turned to video games to hopefully combat these addictions, only to be thrust back in, when people around them were surprised to learn that Call of Duty or Fifa was just as bad if not worse as going to Las Vegas.

Aren’t you basically an unpaid Ubisoft AC Stan? Spare me. It’s really not that hard to make a post to warn customers of issues you are hopefully going to work on but want to transparently inform your customers for goodwill sake. Really, a lot of developers routinely do that. And really, it’s pretty shitty when they don’t.
