It’s definitely unlikely to happen, but I... don’t understand, really. Aren’t you a MCU fan? Or this is just another "gotcha" from me simply speculating at a China re-release? We don’t know what is the extent of this, and while we don’t know that, the fact that we already have confirmation of at least a new location should be exciting to you, if you follow box office. Or you just don’t want Endgame to pass it (there wouldn’t be nothing wrong about that, btw)? Legit curious if this is about Endgame or me posting things, because I really can’t tell if this is banter or something else.

Shows she's disingenuous. She makes up a story to push a narrative, a false one, for clicks and money. She'd have been fine to say the obvious: that Bowser treats Peach like a commodity, but she goes astray saying Mario is also doing that, when in truth Mario and Peach are good friends. Who wouldn't try to save a good friend? She's kind of fringe, and I'm more of a centrist.

Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Defending misogyny
Have you read Shield Hero or watched it? It could have been anyone in her position (well like some in the Novel are and they get what they deserve), but have you read what she has done? Getting renamed to Bitch is better than getting killed. After all that humilation she gave everyone and even her own family (who she wanted to kill too) she came away quiet good, because she has the slave crest only that she cannot lie anymore which is great for that shit character. It's also great when you know what else happens to that character and why everything happens, but that would be a big spoiler (not the webnovel that had other plans). The only thing that irks me is that they talked about Raph and Filo having their crests removed, but they don't do that or rather they redid the seal (they already lost them once) because they get "extra exp". Otherwise their slave crests or status is never a thing again in the series.

Decent ? Come one, dude :). Even the weakest mini (western version) equal the pretty good SNES mini. OK, it has the mediocre Alex Kidd, Altered Beast but SNES mini doesn't have Schmup, BTA, Puzzle games, S-RPG... and we are not talking about "decent" Genesis counter parts. We are talking about God tiers Thunder Force 3, King Streets of Rage 2, the excellent Puyo/Robotnik, and Shining Emperor. Asian and Japanese versions are litterally blast processing rivals with 4 players fucking Hakusho, hilarious Rent a hero, Alien soldier(if Gunstar Heroes, Hard Corps weren't enough) and Musha Aleste to rape any resistance.:) No no no, Capcom's mini is decent, Snes quite good like the Genesis Mini but Asian's megadrive minis are excellent. :)

I'm not, but I'm also not saying I made it or complaining about it not being credited. I can bet if someone stole my avatar I wouldn't say a word. I also don't have million of followers... I'm really not following your line of though here, your reasoning is making no sense at all. "That's not how fanart works?" Please elaborate. It's art, she stole the design from someone else that actually came up with it from scratch. She didn't credit the original designer, and then complains when someone else uses it? "if you, for whatever reason, think it's even remotely the same" I never said it was the same, It doesn't need to be the same to still be hypocritical. Both of them are in the wrong here, the only difference is that she's beeing hypocritical when complain about Elon.Read above. You are really grasping at straws right now.

If you want to defend them so badly, then go get a job at GameFreak. Otherwise, stick to your lane as a FAN WEBSITE. And don't tell me where the outrage is. The lack of National Dex is the straw that broke the camel's back. I don't know about everyone else but I wouldn't say my feelings toward the game was 'positive'.

On the one hand, it's a nice gesture but on the hand it's a white woman giving more spotlight to her fellow white women. Though really that's the problem that I have with the women empowerment movement is that it's currently solely focused on white women and it feels like that women of colours are being excluded because white women are the safer choice. 1. She wasn't being serious with her statement, 2. she has stunt people for insurance purpose, 3. it doesn't take away what she's doing.

Not saying it's right but it's still true.Ok, while I agree after some context that this guy shouldn't be going to Harvard it's still disturbing to me that a single shitty post is the grounds they came up with to end his education at the school that already accepted him in the first place. All the other stuff was apparently already known and they were still going to let him in. People say and do stupid shit, many people grow out of it and change. There's no minimum amount of time that requires that kind of change either. This definitely isn't one of those situations though.Is this really necessary?

Reason User Banned (Permanent): Engaging in unacceptable misconduct.
Now that my dad has recovered from kidney failure and that i put that last relationship fully behind me. I feel like in a state of trying dating again but i set some new rules to make sure i wont get fooled again by ppl lying about their true age. If i meet a foreign person online i wanna see id card. Cuz seriuously i aint going through that blind faith nonsense ever again turned out my last gf lied about her age that literally is the reason i am clear and fine she told everyone the truth and relationship ended and we blocked each other and moved on. So yeah thats why i make sure next time to ask for a confirmation of age sure it might sound silly but its better to avoid this ever happening again. And besides i dont think its that weird if the person is met online and lives far away. If they ask why ill just say the truth. Personally as i soon have a job again ill probably just go to local bars i prefer that way over dating sites those just feel a bit forced to me i prefer meetin someone irl. Thats why i am actually glad to have a job finally soon so that i put myself out more. It probably wont be that hard to find someone since i am quite good looking other people say so too. And i agree tbh. Yeah i am glad that rollercoaster got resolved and i ofcourse learned my lesson. To always freakin ask for proof of age with long distance relationships. She lied btw cuz she knew i would not date her if she told her true age so when after months she finally told the truth i was like sorry cant do this and made sure her family knew what happened so she would not try to get me back or anything like that and also can just move on with her life. I forgave her cuz young peeps do stupid shit all the time and i shouldve asked for proof of her age. Honestly my dad gettin a kidney transplant around the time of this drama happening was a good timing so i could focus on him and mentally sort myself out to make sure this wont happen twice as in another time. Its not like i am proud of it. And i am glad it got sorted out in a way both of us can move on. My dad jokes well next time squiddo make sure they are 18+ and while he makes light of the situation i agree like askin proof of age is not that crazy. I know that as a pretty good lookin fella teen girls could get interested too and ill make sure to never make that mistake again and be fooled by that age lie ever again. As i said earlier when in doubt ill ask for id or passport. Better be safe then sorry and end up in jail. This time i was lucky as ppl understood the situation and it was a eye opener to be more open eyed. No matter what never ever ill date someone under legal age again and drop my guard down. I have got it printed in my head "Squiddo ask proof of age before dating no matter what" and thats exactly what my dad told me he even said well if they are from anothrr country let them come to you or have em send a pic of their id before you start a relationship. Sorry for the rambling but yeah just wanted to be honest about what happened and i posted earlier about it on era so might aswell have a full post about it to clear it up incase it ever backfires me somehow. Random selfie of me since i dont like lying and talking bs. But yeah i promised myself to never make that mistake again and o am very glad the situation ended decently for us both. I am not mad tbh at all just dissapointed in myself i got fooled and shouldve been more carefull and just asked for her damn id or something. But tbh while i wont use it as a full excuse my dad was horribly ill at the time so i let my guard down a lil. My family and friends say shit happens and as she lied about her age your not fully to blame sure it was stupid of you but dont worry just make sure next time to check better and get that age proof and all is fine dont stress to much about it. While i agree with them i still feel shit about it all but tbh i think thats actually a good thing wich will make sure i am more aware next time with meetin ppl online. Its been like 6 months now and i finally can move on mentally and personally from the mess what happened. In that time i helped my dad with his recovery and made sure to think of things and how to handle things better and more adult like in the future. I also admire my family and friends and other peeps they were really supportive. I actually had suicide thoughts at first cuz i felt like i was a huge failure but words of my family and friends made me reconsider that thought. Sure it will always taunt me in a way but its not worth takin my life for. That taunt can actually work in a good way wich means being more carefull with dating. Tbh believe me even admitting this all is hard for me but tbh i dont wanna lie about it cuz thats worse. Tbh in the end both of us are too blame and i accept that. We both were really stupid and thats saying it nicely. Tbh i am thankfull for her and her family that they gave me a second chance basically cuz otherwise i could actually be in jail. Honestly thats why i am not mad at her or have hsrd feelings she told the full truth about the situation. And dw we blocked each other forever. A while ago she contacted me dispite that and wanted to be friends but i said its better to just leave this all behind us. Like i couldve said yes but this time i wanted to make a good decision and i think cutting of contact with this girl is just that. I ofcourse told her why its better and she understood luckily. Now im done rambling truly sorry xd but might aswell tell the whole truth as i posted earlier about it in this thread and on era. Personally i am really thankfull of the peeps that supported me i might have not be here without em. Believe me i am not proud this all happened and itll stick with me forever. Tbh i am crying a little now cuz tbh my dad kinda saved my life on this one while he was deadly ill he was the most relaxed about it all. And was like son dont fret it shit happens just make sure to be more cautiones nex time you are no pedo this could happen to anyone son dont let it consume you. Well thats all its my own burden to life with but yeah i can give it a place now and be a better and more carefull person. But yep squiddo ask for that damn id before you date online or long distance. And tbh even irl when in doubt while going out better be safe than sorry. Sorry for the big post but i felt like atleast fully typing this out especially since i talked about it earlier on era without much context wich actually can work out badly. But yeah not proud that i dated a minor. I truly shouldve asked for proof age. It was stupid as fuck of me. But its a very hard life lesson for me. Ill make sure it never happens again even not by being fooled or lied to. Like if someone doesnt want to show their id or passport or amy proof of age that should be a red flag and then immediatly be avoided. Now im done rambling but yeah thats the full story tbh. I really needed to get that out even if it makes me look bad. And i thank my dad for being there for me same for friends and some random peeps. Without them i might have actually ended my life but their support and words of wisdom made me reconsider any suicide attempts i had. Hopefully my post will make people a lil more carefull aswell its better to avoid this kind of situation at all. Its not worth it. Thank you for readin. Cheers.

Currently they just homoganize all the job and dumb down the complexity to cater to bad player . They dont think about low level dungeon at all , they keep remove job skill at low level make leveling urterly boring to play for new player to push them buy "level skip Poiton". Moreover, for some job they just remove some low level skill then give back as new skill at high level with different animation.

Reason User Banned (1 Month): Dismissive and Antagonistic Commentary over Multiple Posts in this Thread; History of Similar Behavior in Other Topics
Plausible deniability for what? Why is it Era to be the hunger games at times when the end result seems to be posters wanting or wishing others they debate with just get banned to get rid of them? You're constructing quite the us vs them in real time, then expressing publicly what appears to be unhappiness a ban hammer doesn't just go through a topic and pick off everyone you aren't happy with. That is precisely the of internet assumptions/accusations and going from 0 to 100 that quite clearly has Mike Pondsmith's jimmies rustled and has agitated a few in here. On Resetera it is banning or excluding people from being able to post, elsewhere on Twitter or wherever else it is accusing of the worst intent possible in order for accusations to go viral and people to be left upset and distressed. Whether its staff, creators or whoever it is. All shapes and forms of what I see as internet radicalization. Many people aren't looking to talk or be challenged, or have to read/listen or maybe hold off on fearing the worst. They just seek confirmation bias and failing that, getting those who dared challenge them banned, smeared, accused and sent packing. I mean, is there nuance to "dismissing your viewpoints?". Does someone simply saying to you, have you considered this, equal outright dismissal? Because in amongst all the debating of the voodoo boys myself and others tried to bring 2020 lore and also an interview with Yong Yea explaining what Mike Pondsmith was trying as a rebuttal to some posters remarks (often the remarks that were the most certain around intent). Is that ? Is dismissal simply as a concept as black and white as "Do you agree with me or not?".I've never said it's not a concern, I simply find it exhausting to see absolutism and then the branches from that which often result in if you dare bring evidence or other viewpoints to my initial accusation, you are simply unfairly dismissing. Listening to feedback and being questioned is part of the creative process, but some of the accusations and absolutism is hardly done in a way which can be taken in good faith. You're painted as from the start and then have to spend more time trying to clear your name than actually addressing concerns.

Hmm. I don’t really disagree with your overall sentiment, but child pornography is universally considered bad because it involves real children being exploited. If it’s completely fictional, well, maybe it should be banned, but it is not the clear cut evil that something involving real children is. It’s like the difference between snuff films and depicting murder in fiction. You should distinguish between the two, actually, even if I see why you’d advocate for it all to be banned.

GamingThread Is the gaming community more toxic/juvenile than others
Reason User banned (duration pending): trolling, gatekeeping, dismissing bigotry, account in junior phase
The most toxic part of gaming is what’s become the most toxic part of society itself, that is, the vocal minority that like to nitpick and start drama where there is none. This typically happens with people who claim to be part of the gaming community but aren’t actually so. Recent examples of this are the idiotic comments about Cyberpunk 2077’s cover art being a “white male” when in fact the art is reversible with a woman on the other side, and the issue with the “transphobic” ad in the two gameplay demos shown. People just like to hate and, while it scares game devs and publishers, this minority in no way represents the gaming community as a whole. Most people just want to enjoy the games they enjoy without being berated for it.

Every human on Earth has at least one belief that others would not agree with. Are we to really be outraged at every single one?

This is a good and important point. The problem comes when/if there is a way to realign gender and sex early on. Is being trans a "treatable problem" at that point, like cystic fibrosis, or a lifestyle choice? Certain members of the deaf community resist treating deafness in their children. Parents can and do provide consent for their children, so if the most effective solution to a gender/sex discrepancy is in-utero or early childhood therapy, would you deny it to someone? Kinda reminds me of some of the plots on "Orville" with their sex reassignment society (though they never really discuss gender, presumably the procedure fixes this?).

As a gay guy Im ok with this. Yes of course more options are better, but from Ive seen the game play is more than solid and thats what really matters. If you decide not to play Fire Emblem just because it doesnt meet your personal quota of gay options, what are you really playing for in the first place? Plus i doubt the leaker has seen all the supports, and I dont think weve seen even close to all the available characters. Im sure lots join post time skip and we have seen none of those. I also think its entitled, privileged and unrealistic to be making these sorts of demands. Not every game has to have a wealth of gay options even if they did before. This also ignores even more underrepresented groups like non binary etc. who get almost no representation anywhere. Not gonna lie tho im a little dissapointed I cant S rank my husbando Ashe.

Reason User Banned (3 Days): Reinforcing Harmful Stereotypes
I wasnt implying he was at risk. I was saying that no one here will consider the possibilities of mental health issues until something more serious and stereotypical behaviour of suffers is reported. I'm not defending him, I'm not telling anyone what happened, I simply wanted to bring another perspective to a discussion with everyone stuck on repeat. I've seen the man discuss burnout on his channel, feeling tired of it, and needing time away from it. Maybe its nothing, or maybe it's something. These same types of comments from people in every day life have lead to problematic events. Sometimes it's nothing, but sometimes it's something... I've witnessed multiple behaviors from a streamer that made me question his mental health. I brought it up to share, and people decided what they wanted to take from it. Majority took it as just excusing his actions. But it was never my intent. I've seen a lot of people in my life with mental health issues. Self destructive behavior is pretty common. Considering his life as a streamer, the stress of protecting his family (house being shot up) and the repetition and boredom of such a job isn't hard to think maybe he finally just had enough and made bad choices in an attempt to get out. Again, to be clear, I'm not saying this is fact. I'm just sharing a perspective to think about.

God of Wars single i dont know what camera shot something. That frankly non aspect was pummeled to hell and back by its suporters as if it was this transcendent aspect. Someone even said how bad all games looked in his eyes because of that. Days Gone, people were clinging to every minuscule aspect they could find in order to inflate the game. The only sale metric we got for the game was physical. In UK only. Which amounted to something like 100k copies or something like that. Forget about it, people were writing articles how the game is selling gangbusters, how the public opinion didnt care about the midlling reviews and so on. Resetera is of the opinion that steam user reviews are absolut junk and should be wiped from existence. But in the case of Days Gone, the newest sony exclusive, people, in their attempt to make reality other than it is, made a 180 and all of a sudden metacritics user reviews of all things were the most relevant thing ever :)))) See, people said. User reviews on mt are at 80. The audience clearly worships sony's newest exclusive. Without having interest in xbox, this forum worships the ground sony walks on.

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Conspiratorial Rhetoric and Fearmongering About Vaccines; Prior Ban for Conspiratorial Rhetoric and Numerous Accumulated Infractions
First of all, I’m not anti vaccines person. I’m not going to say vaccines should be abolished or not used. I’m from Africa originally and vaccines saved considerable amount of lives. Probably millions ! Having said that, there are legitimate concerns about vaccines that need to be addressed. So let’s just stop crucify any people that have concerns about vaccines. There are evidences that some vaccines created serious health problems in the past. So we need to look into it and make sure it doesn’t happen ever again. One of the big concern some people have are not vaccines, but some of the questionable ingredients. For example formalehyde ( that could cause cancer ) and aluminum. Many people are challenging pharmaceutical companies with the use of some ingredients. And that’s a good thing, if it the end, it makes us safe. Personally, the problem I have is that vaccines are a cash-cow for pharmaceutical companies and I don’t trust them. Should I really trust Bayer 100% when they bought Monsanto ? Pharmaceutical companies have lobbyists all over the place and I think it’s more to ensure benefits than our well being. I’m French and pharmaceutical lobbies are extremely powerful over here. There was a big controversy when the French government spent incredible amount of money for the Influenza H1H1 outbreak, where they said 2 shots were necessary when it was proven later it wasn’t the case. Not the mention the close relationship the Health secretary had with some pharmaceutical companies... Again, not saying vaccines should not be used or banned, not all all. But I clearly understand the concerns of some people. And I believe more - independent - studies are necessary. Source :

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Dismissing Concerns on Transphobia, Misrepresenting Arguments, and Accusations of Outrage Culture; Account in Junior Phase
It took maybe several seconds of critical thinking to come to the same reasons as the CDPR rep stated here. I swear some folk go out of their way to deliberately extrapolate and twist information and context just in order to get and outrage mob building. Looking at the comments in the other thread... some of these folks should be embarrassed by their emotional outbursts and need to get a grip. And in this thread there are people flip flipping more than a fish out of water "oh that's fine definitely going to buy now" Maybe instead of jumping to conclusions and condemning an entire collection of people "CDPR are transphobic" we should allow creatives to show us or tell us, perhaps give them the benefit of the doubt and not take things out of context until we have a more complete picture and understanding, otherwise we risk completely stifling creative voices from exploring uncomfortable, controversial, finge or taboo subjects. In 24 hours this game has gone from a transphobic and racist alt-right piece of propaganda to "hyper-progressive". Jesus H. Christ

The way I see it? They are creating a game about a DYSTOPIAN future ( for those who don't understand what it means). So, if they are committed to their vision, they should make things like racism, ethnical divisions, sexualisation, trans people treatment worse than they are now, not better. People are giving them sh*t because of how black the Animals gang was. How inconsiderate it was to have a white protagonist kill those stereotypic black criminals. Well, in a society as depicted in Cyberpunk, people should have it even more difficult to escape their ethnic ghettos, so this is a reasonable choice to depict gangs as same race/same ethnic groups (especially not caucasian). The image of the trans person with a "mix it up" slogan is very inappropriate, on the nose and inconsiderate. Exactly how I would expect advertisements in a corporate ruled, dystopian future to be. I would even go farther. Reading comments on RPS, PCGamer or Kotaku under articles regarding this situation there is a lot of people hoping that the devs will present that in the context that clearly defines that kind of thing as wrong. And I for one, hope to God they will not. The Witcher 3 was great, because it gave you every opportunity to act like a d*ck and then would show you the consequences of your action. If you were a d*ck IRL, they probably didn't bother you much, as no one told you something like "that was the BAD choice to make". If you were not a d*ck IRL however, it made you question your decision and maybe feel a little bit bad in the process. I hope in Cyberpunk, thet will crank it up to 11. Give you every opportunity to embrace the dystopian future and live an easy life of an inconsiderate, sleazy bastard. I hope it will give you a choice to exploit trans people, capitalise on racial stereotypes and do all manners of morally disgusting stuff and benefit from it. And then it should show you the consequences of your actions. Not in some over-narrated, closed-to-interpretation way, that would simply point out how terrible a person you are. In the real world, the consequences of such actions are often subtle, but the problem is that the privileged western culture CIS population often doesn't even see them. I think a lot of people would reflect on their real life behaviour even if given subtle clues on how what they do affects minorities. And some will choose this path and thrive, some will feel shitty about themselves for choosing the easy and immoral way. I also hope, the decent man's path will be harder and less rewarding in terms of loot/money. As it should be harder and it should be a more difficult thing to be a decent person in a world ruled by indecent men. Being decent should be it's own reward. In the end that journey could really make a lot of those not politically engaged on one side or the other (AKA a huge majority of people) change something about their lives for the better. And from what I can tell from CDPR interviews so far, that is where they are going with it. And I would really implore all the minorities that feel offended by that to let them. I understand you would feel better if someone would show that they give a damn about how you are treated with a very direct message like "this is bad, this is good". But ask yourselves this - what would do your cause more good? Having the privileged CIS majority play a game that for 200 hours tells them on every occasion "Treat LGBTQ People right! And ethnic minorities too!" or putting them for said 200 hours in a virtual world where they can witness realistically (but slightly more pronounced, as all things in Cyberpunk should be) shown consequences of mistreating minorities and letting them draw their own conclusions? I, an overweight CIS male, a typical nerd gamer, can give you some insight in that regard. And I have a feeling my fellow CIS gamers would agree with me.

The fact that developers can’t explore themes like this without being immediately attacked is fucking sad, imo. It’s shameful. Especially a developer like CDPR that explores themes other developers don’t even dare to explore. It’s all about grey zones and letting you decide for yourself: what’s good, what’s wrong (if that even exists). What does everyone expect? A super safe, focus tested game? No cursing, nudity, violence, exploration of LGBT+ themes? Just a bland, PG13 game? Extreme violence? Let’s make a thread about how developers / artists should tone back the violence. They must be condoning this behaviour. Cursing? Let’s make a thread about it. How dare this - obviously written as an evil, villainous character - use curse words that they would probably fucking use IRL?! How do they fucking DARE?! Exploration of LGBT+ themes? Let’s immediately attack them, they must be homophobic / transphobic as fuck. Does anyone realize that it’s disrespectful to the people working there that you are all attacking them without giving them the benefit of the doubt? That there are LGBT+ people working there that are now immediately cornered by a mob as if they’re working at a shitty, disrespectful place? I think this trend of immediately ASSUMING the absolute worst is EXTREMELY toxic, and that’s what we want to avoid in the first place, right? Stop jumping the gun.

And I dont fully understand why? They pretty much 180'd themselves from the beginning of the generation shenanigans.....they have given Gamers what Gamers wanted at pretty much every turn....beyond having an Uncharted, God of War or Last of Us game. They have done pretty much everything right since about mid-gen....Id think people would forget the bias and just give respect where respect is due. Looking from a non-biased perspective the negativity towards Microsoft and Microsoft IP is staggering even when the IP dont deserve the hate(Crackdown 3 got what it deserved). People keep telling me NOT to play that narrative but from what ive seen the bias on ERA is clear as day Sony can do no evil, Microsoft can do nothing right is the view a good percentage of the posters have. Go into any MS thread regardless of what its about...and half the first page is some random hate, go into a Sony thread and the first 3 pages are dick sucking. And now we have this thread where people are telling me the Halo Infinite graphics look current gen....yet from a technical perspective there is no game current gen anywhere near Halo infinte. Not liking the art style is fine....cant force an artstyle down someones throat.....but technically speak this is very very impressive footage....ohh but its Microsoft, so no its actually trash.

There is a whole subculture surrounding "chicks with dicks" that's been around for far longer than the current state of affairs regarding what medical sciene has enabled those who truly want or need to change their gender are able to accomplish. Events like Drag Queen Bingo nights are popular all over the US, Thailand has a whole sex trade based on attractive women who happen to be hung, and yes it's clearly a fetish but one that's enjoyed by people of all genders that I know of. Conversely, it offends people of all genders/orientations too - not everyone is into everything. I saw the topic and clicked preparing to be offended, but I found the ad chuckle-worthy and in good taste. It doesn't mean I am downplaying the struggle that LBGT people face at all. I can respect their plight and still find humor in an ad like this. Not everything warrants a crusade. At this point it feels like everyone is combing over Cyberpunk 2077 to try and scrub it and shape it into their idea of what's "right." But it's a piece of art - we don't get to assume creative control over it, and something as simple as a poster in the background really isn't an attack on anyone's beliefs in this case. Mix it up, as the poster says! Have some fun!

Jesus, let's get outraged that a dystopian future is showing messed up ads. Let's bitcc and moan on social media until no company dares do anything outside of anyones comfort-zone.

1) It will have drastic and extreme versions of everything, of which they probably all be shown in a negative light. A theme that is based in the worst of mankind has to show the worst of mankind, and there is nothing wrong with that in a fictional setting. Else you lose all violence in video games too. Calling this hand waving is lazy: Art should be offensive when showing a theme, and cyberpunk is the epitome of that. Why do you want something sterilized? Are you one of those guys arguing to take politics out of games? If anything this is taking a stab at capitalism, which I'll take a wild guess: Is something you like seeing stabbed. 2) You mean the one guy from a different culture who after a couple tweets lost his job?

Reason User Banned (Permanent): Homophobia.
So wait, you're saying that a it is "white privilege" because a "gay black woman" can get discriminated for more things than the other?? Because of things that are her choice based on what that person likes and feels?? Like the poster that you quote said, you can be a white straight man and have a hard life. Or a trans. Or homosexual. I think that's the very toxic thinking that a lot of people have regarding these matters. "whatever could happen to you, it will always be harder for us". We should all push for equality, but first people (gay and straight) have to understand we ARE equal. It's just we make different choices. Edit: This thread only turned to attacks between both sides, when the discussion can be taken in a different manner.

Is it not allowed to create controversial portrayals of LGBT persons in movies or games?

Everything is transphobic or homophobic etc. when a LGBT person is not displayed in the most careful, harmonic and sensitive way smh

Right? Life is complicated and relationships are too. You have to learn to work with and around people you don't always agree with sometimes. And there are moral compromises everywhere--environmentally, culturally, politically, etc. I actually wonder if it's maybe the part of the country that people live in that makes the difference. I certainly couldn't function where I live in the deep South if I took a lot of the stances people take. And I think a lot of people would view me as self righteous. I pick my battles. Occassionally, if I think someone is open, I might say something to someone who uses a gay slur, I certainly say something to my students when I hear them doing it. But I've certainly learned to live and let live and let larger zeitgeist take shape. The progress on LGBT issues in the last 10 years is astounding to me. And I don't think that progress has much if anything to do with boycotting people with differing views.

Naw, a neutral reply would have been along the lines of "You shouldn't do that. 'A female' is a derogatory remark; you should say woman." Explaining it would be continuing to give the reason why, such as the alt-right context. It's clear you have a frustration about it, but tell me, if a six year old who doesn't know any better came to you and said female instead of woman, do you think your response would be appropriate? I'm not saying you were being mean, but it was definitely passive aggressive, which is definitely not something that goes in hand with educating someone. Furthermore, you're continuing to be aggressive with me, by saying my perspective is skewed; you're completely disregarding that anyone could interpret it differently when a few people have said exactly that already.

Reason User warned: "lazy dev" rhetoric is not allowed. Please review our FAQ.
Pokémon needs to evolve and I'm surprised it hasn't since deciding to move to the switch. They could of gone full BotW with Sword/Shield but decided against it. Based on this I would of assumed they didn't because they were continuing to have 800+ Pokémon available in the game. I guess I was wrong Gamefreak have apparently become lazy and greedy by keeping profit margins high but choosing not to revolutionize the turn based combat gameplay to a more action orientated system (FFXII). With 800+ Pokémon I do feel a sacrifice is needed however they haven't really improved anything for scarificing 700+ Pokémon. Unfortunately nothing will change unless Gamefreak give the development reigns to someone else. Can you imagine an open world action-rpg Pokémon game developed by CD Project Red? This IP deserves better.

Reason User Banned (Permanent): Racism; Account in Junior Phase
Disclaimer: This is a way too hot take I only partially agree with in the first place that's been bugging the hell out of me since yesterday but fuck it I'm gonna shoot from the hip here Honestly I'm legit surprised nobody's tried to call out Ikumi for basically going the whole hog regarding self orientalization. Like during that whole presentation I was kinda uncomfortable at how she was basically performatively doing all this dumb "kawaii anime bullshit". She's basically playing into all of the stereotypes that that NYT article brought up to make herself a meme and honestly that's kinda fucked up. (Honestly I'll admit I'm probably way more cynical about everything during that entire Bethesda presentation because everything that wasn't Doom or Youngblood was either a CG trailer with no gameplay (Deathloop and Ghostwire) or a clown car pileup (Fallout 76, Keen Mobile and the rest) but you know what I'm pissed for unrelated reasons and feel like getting into some angry discourse right now tbh)

And as far as I know noone did anything to him. The Salah injury in last year's CL was a moment where you should be a scumbag to celebrate, or Neymar's in 2014 WC... Durant? Naaahhh.

I don't really see the big problem. Game is still on PC, it's just a different launcher. 2004 people didn't want to install Steam and forced to be "always connected" just so they could play Half-Life 2. Then 7 or so years ago people were pissed EA games were being removed from Steam while Origin would be the new service. People are sore today about Epic, in a few years time no one will really care, at least games are still on PC and it's supported, just now you have more options. Epic, Steam, Origin. It's just like having Netflix, Hulu, Lightbox, Neon, Amazon, Disney..... It's the industry and they want a share of your money.

You know I really don't care because if Valve DOESN'T give a damn about this and from the looks of it. They don't. Because they haven't done anything to attack back and it seems like they are sitting on their hands because if they did they would've done something by now. What Epic Games is doing is trying to monopolize the PC gaming market and turn it into a console market where exclusively of this nature occurs and I don't see Valve doing anything to try and counter it.

It sucks they're not honouring refunds for those who want them (which will ultimately be a very small percentage of people so just bloody do it), but I still cannot believe the level of outrage on here about a swap in store front. You'd think this type of frothing at the mouth would be reserved for things that impact the actual game experience, or the people working on it. Shenmue threads usually struggle beyond 4-5 pages on here, now all of a sudden people care so passionately about it? If there's anything gamers are more passionate about than video games it's corporate allegiances. Personally, I'm a high tier backer and have waited 18 years for this game -- there's no way a change in launcher is going to deter me.

What Yu Suzuki and Deep Silver did for Shenmu III is one of the most galling, outrageous and greedy move the gaming industry has ever seen. Do check the history :Kickstarter is based on an ideal and goodwill, they wouldn't exist without those. It shows their true character when they then take the most cynical and toxic choice possible with exclusivity on a fucking open platform. They turned their backs on the people who supported them and they did so without a shred of remorse or hesitation given the tone of their recent communication. To paraphrase it : "No, you don't get refunds. This is how it is. Fuck you." I don't know if it's a Japanese idea to sound so unapologetic and authoritarian when you are so much in the wrong but it's not going to do wonders for them. Has the press said anything yet about this or the impact Epic has on kickstarter which is, you know, the seedbed of most indies, gaming innovation and triumphs since 2012?

Microsoft has not made a game at the quality of a Sony AAA game in over a decade. Sony has far better 3rd party support than Microsoft does, PSN alone generates more revenue than the entire Xbox division. I can go on but I hope you got the point.

EtcetEraThread 60% of male managers now say they’re uncomfortable participating in work activities with women (CNBC)
Reason User banned (duration pending): sexism
A lot of you that are immediately writing this off aren't males that work in leadership. As someone that manages times have changed so much. There are women frothing at the mouth waiting for a guy to slip up and say something that sounds sexist to them. There is also a constant guilt trip that you should hire a less qualified woman over other superior male candidates. It's gotten to the point that some guys talk about not knowing what's right or wrong anymore and just choose to keep quiet. It basically makes you feel like you are constantly walking on eggshells in a leadership position. I'm not saying women don't deserve to be treated better and don't deserve the same equality that men do in the workplace. I'm saying there's a new race card out there for females and select few are using it and ruining it for everyone. Edit: I should also note that the women that I have managed that I described above are the typically ones that are underperforming. Rarely is it the female employees who are great at their work and are less dramatic.

In addition, claims of hosting CP were done by users and the boards in question were removed by site owners as it is against the global site rules. You're just getting angry for no reason.

She seems to be enjoying it from the looks of it and it’s great that she is. Nevertheless, there is still an underlying issue that exists with this in regards to fetishization. Luckily it’s not too excessive in this particular case, but there are already examples. It’s important to acknowledge that while all of this is in good fun for the most part, it’s also important to acknowledge the potential issue at hand. It’s especially important not to immediately shoot down that point. It doesn’t come as a surprise how often the weeb avatars on these forums do the latter, and can only be telling of their beliefs on the subject in a larger context.

Why are people so outraged by this? You're getting the same game, just via a different store. What does it matter if it's via Steam or via EGS? Is it just because those who have to pay for the game may have to pay more on EGS? So an outrage based on a slight extra cost to the game that the developers would benefit from? Surely gamers should want the developers to get more financial support and backing, especially when it's a tiny Kick-starter backed studio like YS Net, if Epic are paying them for exclusivity, and when you can play the same game all the same.

GamingThread Atlus currently have no plans to port Persona 5 Royal to other platforms
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Pattern of platform warring while in junior phase.
No, I don't, just like I said above. First, Atlus is used to port games on Vita, they've done it for years, while they have yet to release a on Switch. How are you sure it takes more effort for them to release a game on the Vita, compared to the Switch ? Do you work in the company ? Have you ever released a game on Vita ? Are you a software developer ? Second, you're not seeing the full picture here. Atlus always had a faithful audience on the Vita in Japan. The same audience that bought the Persona dancing titles and many others games published by Atlus on the Vita. Releasing Catherine Full Body is just the natural continuation of feeding an audience that always supported you and if that's too hard to understand, just think of it as a gift to the people who supported them on the platform for so long. As an aside, do you think this audience will hesitate to support Atlus in the future ? Don't you think that - maybe - this strategy of being loyal to your customers is one of the reason they've been around for so long despite not breaking sales record left and right ? Do you start to see the bigger picture here ?What is your common-sens worth business-wise, exactly ? Isn't it just an opinion and nothing more ? I asked you for a solid proof there was an audience for Persona 5 on the Switch, a solid proof worth putting actual money on the table. You failed to provide any, outside of trying to convince me your common-sens is something else than one opinion among millions. I can understand that you're personally convinced that Persona 5 on Switch would be a good move. I respect that. However, insulting a publisher of being dumb for not answering your projected desire because you think that you're smarter than them is something else, entirely. Outlandish claims requires way more than what your common-sens is worth. Outside of Persona Q, all Persona mainline titles are Playstation bound since 1996 (with a single Windows port in its entire history). The franchise is around for 23 years. It has grow steadily with each iteration and is now at an all time high. Keeping the franchise on Playstation is a hard-proven strategy, regardless of you liking it or not. It's just all pure facts. Maybe it's worse the hassle of shifting the strategy to mutli-platforms release for the franchise, maybe it isn't. It would maybe expand the audience or it could alienate your existing one. Regardless, facts are stronger than fancy discussion-boards theorizing. You're the only who seems to be on the verge of exploding because someone disagree with you. I'm not the one accusing you of being a console warrior and insulting the legacy of a 33 years old publisher. I'm perfectly calm myself, don't worry.

There are worse things to worry about today in this world. Thousands of people are getting slaughtered, cut into pieces, murdered, raped everyday. Don't take something that a game developer does, so seriously.

does it mean something else to both of you? my trans buddy uses it a lot and most my social group just uses it as a sarcastic false attack. genuinely didn’t think people took it so seriously

GamingThread Next-gen PS5 and next Xbox speculation launch thread |OT5| - It's in RDNA
Reason User banned (1 day): platform wars
Where are those Xbox insiders, who've said xbox anaconda will clearly be the more powerful than PS5 lol?! i clearly knew they're just some fanfictions statements from xbox fanboys! as i said before Sony's R&D is in another class, there is no way for MS to launch a more or even identical machine than sony in the same time frame and price! god bless Cerny :)

GamingThread Nintendo sends a cease and desist to insider that has leaked pretty much every E3 2019 announcement
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending) Inflammatory Generalizations and Trolling Over Multiple Posts in this Thread; Previous infractions for Trolling and Hostility
First impression don't mean shit to me. I need to know way more about something before I begin to like it and the whims of a marketing team or even straight up the director/developer/auteur are not going to sway me in any direction that matters to me. I get why someone would value the first impression but they share the same values of a 5-year-old who is amazed by any piece of marketing so sorry if I don't appreciate you deciding what my values are.
