Not buying it." -Third party releases a new game on Switch on par with more powerful consoles at reasonable price- Fanboys/Incels: "Fuck you random company, release some exclusives because I already have this on steam." ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

EtcetEraThread I just read about otherkin, those who claim they are. Are they roleplaying or do they actually believe in it?
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Inflammatory False Equivalences Surrounding Gender Identity
I'm torn. On one hand, I would argue that to be "otherkin" would be harmful to transgender people and in line with the Rachel Dolezals and transagists of the world. On the other, where do we draw the line? A cisgender person can't really fully conceptualize the existential angst of being transgender, in the same way that a binary trans person wouldn't be able to fully conceptualize the angst of someone who's genderfluid, or nonbinary, or agender, or third gender. An argument for invalidity because of non-understanding seems incredibly exclusionary to me. I mean, it's not like we've cracked the code and can effectively point out that a certain set of neurons firing in a specific way is indicative of real pain and suffering. All I can do, I think, is take people at their word and respect it, even if bad faith actors slip through the cracks.

this is called exclusivity. this has been done for quite a few decades and since ms moneyhatted quite a few games last gen, people seem to be very distrustful. why dont you try to reason, why there is no pokemon or super mario game on playstation? or no uncharted game on xbox? EGS has a reason to exist: some devs would like to try out another platform, others only want to see their game being sold instead of being pirated(because GOG/steam seems piratable(i dont know if this is real, because i dont play on pc, but this seems to be a thing) another reason is that the EGS is a platform with nothing else than only the game being on display. or another store which does not shit out every game out there in existance. you could argue, why the humble bundle is not offering an option to donate the money to help refugees, so why do you argue in the same why against the EGS?

Online dating is just shitty in general, but if you think it's that bad for a woman you'd have written a book on what it's like being a man. The deck is heavily stacked in your favor. Yeah, from reading the OP she seems generally awful.Not only that but people go on coffee dates as the first date because it can be quick and painless if there is no chemistry, or you can spend hours getting to know each other.

The idea that Biden appeals to the Mid West when his message is "Let's go back to the Obama times, which were great for you guys!" is kinda nuts. He's probably one of the candidates least likely to win against Trump. Heck, Warren will benefits from every positive Hilldog had, will appeal more to the white working class, and has a message going against big money elite interests which was a huge part of Trumps popularity (even though it was clearly a facade)The black vote is heavily split between generations? Biden loses a bunch of popularity the younger voters get. Also if you're a black person voting for the most blatantly racist of the candidates who has a policy set that is the least beneficial to poor black communities I'm going to be controversial here and say that it's not unfair to put you in the bracket of clueless voters.

Do you have numbers of gay people who have been killed in Saudi Arabia for who they are? Honestly, im sick of western people speaking like they know shit about the middle east where all they know is what the media falsly give them. Homosexuality in Saudi Arabia is more common than anywhere in any western country, as an act not an identity, and due to how common it is, it is very overlooked, it is almost considered normal. Sure, the goverment publicly denounce Homosexuality to maintain its image as a fundamental Islamic state, but in reality it is very tolerable.

The world has diversity issues however your framing of those issues is telling. There's this myth that the middle east has been a "no gay zone" and thatyet there is no evidence of such systematic killing. If you have some, that is not pinkwashing by zionist propaganda then feel free to share it. Am I saying middle eastern countries are "lgbt friendly" or trying undermine and handwave away the real and often severe issues and challenges lgbt individuals are facing in the region? Don't be ridiculous but at the same time i'm not going to pretend there's some sort of anti-lgbt genocide occurring. What is occurring and is certifiable is the genocide and ethnic cleansing of a people based on their race no matter their gender/orientation. What's even more egregious is that lgbt marginalization is being used as political tool to justify said racism and genocide - just as the palestinian based lgbt organizations attest to.

GamingThread Ion Fury devs show signs of transphobia among other issues. [Update: Voidpoint apologizes in statement, see threadmarks]
Reason User banned (3 days): advocating for piracy, platform warring
Hi, I'm new here. I'm a man (assigned female at birth) who's been into ego shooters since my dad let me play Quake as a kid, much to his surprise and amusement that I wanted to, and ego shooters have been one of the few safe topics we could connect on until he passed away. The last one we ever talked about was Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, which we both thought was terrible, and I haven't bothered with the new ones. I bought Ion Maiden in Early Access, which was basically a short demo, and it got me so stoked I double-dipped and bought the Limited Founder's Edition which I'm still waiting for. I got down on the full version the moment it launched, beat it on Maximum Fury without savescumming in two eight-hour sittings, and it's far and away the best ego shooter campaign I've played since Modern Warfare 2. I started talking about it with one of my friends and told them to check it out, and then they told me about all this nonsense. I came here to check it out, and... this has been all really fucked up, straight from one of the best experiences I've had with a videogame this year (and in my life in general) to a persistent migraine that I'm still reconciling with. Total whiplash in the past week. I'm not so shocked that some of the developers are blatant bigots and their fanbase are supportive of them. I've always been a hardcore gamer, I know the culture, I deal with this shit online and off all the time. I'm glad this forum exists and that there are people on here who will not let hateful and phobic viewpoints fester without opposition. I'm surprised that 3D Realms has made a reasonable and direct apology, and I'm laughing at all the hypocritical idiots who are review bombing and screaming about censorship because a shampoo bottle is getting replaced. In the future I hope people will remember the game and not this incident, because the game is life-affirmingly incredible to me aside from that one shampoo bottle sprite and an OOB message and repeated references to The Room, and I hope the transphobic people who made this game continue to make incredible games without their phobic bullshit in them. But, to be more personal, this event really underscored a conflict I've had my whole life in how I relate to art and other people. All my trans and allied friends don't really care about videogames, and I don't blame them, but it's frustrating when Ion Maiden has so much that's original and breathtaking to say about level design, simply some of the most inventive and detailed and sprawling and interconnected ego shooter levels ever are in this, but people everywhere (and on here) will take any excuse to disregard brilliance and go back to playing Overwatch or their even more insidious Atlus JRPGs. If you don't want to support bigots, why not pirate the game? And if you care about ego shooters, why are you talking about buying it on Switch? I can understand playing it on a real console if one's life situation demands it, but a Switch? There's no chance it'll run at 60FPS (it already chugs a bit on my GTX 1070-equipped PC), and how are you gonna snap headshots while strafing in a split-second with those nubbed finger sticks unless the game does it for you, and then what's the point? It's just not fair to the game, or to yourself. . Is it really worth it? All my life I've had to engage with people who pretend to tolerate my identity, and people who pretend to care about videogames. The only safe space I could rely upon growing up is playing Quake III online, kicking ass and earning respect, but I can't take that outside. I can't take it online anymore either, because nobody cares about Quake anymore and people decided to cancel LawBreakers. Cancel Paragon. Cancel Ion Fury. Cancel everything. Everyone's a fucking asshole who hates me and the things I love, and in the end I'm so numb to bigotry and to posers and to all the screaming and nobody really loving anything anymore. I can't express how I feel about anything anymore without being canceled. I'm a trans person and Ion Fury is GOTY 2019. Please play it.

You don't think I have? You think the concern-trolling and the outright hate has stopped though? No. By this point, they are well aware. They just don't seem to care, quite frankly. Look... It's a divisive title. Lovecraftian creatures from another dimension? Babies connecting the World of the living to the World of the dead? A man "dying" every 21-minutes in order to find his dead family? Troy Baker sending hellish demons after me? No game-over screens etc. There's lots of info and enough footage out there and I can barely piece it together. To me, that's exciting. Because if the game's content is meaty, if it delivers on it's potential, if I "and everything makes sense in the end... It'll have been a piss-stroke of genius. You'll have to commend the guy for having the balls to barely explain If it fails, he'll never make a big budget game ever again. That's fucking insane to me! Who else would or even could do that? That's why I want this game to deliver so immensely. I want these people (the entirety of KP) to succeed.

Reason Inflammatory point of comparison. Inappropriate analogy.
Yeah, that's true. It's also true that all of the other outrage youtubers do the same thing. They just agrily scream into dickwad shitgibbon ears thigs to be agry about and point them in the direction of the people that deserve the dickwad shitibbons to uload their dickwadness. But of course they don't support it. Of course. Trump also never asked people to attack immigrants or never voiced support for white supremacy movements, and yet we (rightfully) don't have a problem in making him responsible for the increase of both. EDIT: I'm sorry for this comparison, I can see how it was inappropriate.There are creators who manage to somehow steer clear of that toxic crowd. Hell, there are creators who built their personas on negativity who managed to at least tone it down in lieu of some more positive content (like, say, Yahtzee, to stick with the escapist crowd). And they still get good enough views. Jim's problem is that he dug himself deep into this outrage hole and it might be hard for him to get out of it.

Let's not play dumb, one of the reasons of this move was most likely the fear of backlash from part of their audience. What happened with the Ooblets team would make any dev think twice before making their game exclusive to the EGS and go against gamers(TM). This is not just about physical an mental integrity, it's also about their livehood. Spinning it around as a decision to please such audience is just a pretty way of selling out giving the control you have over your product to a bunch of bullies (and burning bridges within the industry in the way). And I'm obviously not saying all the people interested in the game are like that, but I'm pretty sure most of it is.

Im not going to discuss this specific case. No. And honestly someone who truly believes in that I am not open to talk to further about this topic.like jumping out off second floor, through windows, destroying walls/doors. Chewing through everything. Jumping over fences... i have seen that, and i have seen dogs being therapy who behaved like that. On the other hand, while you cant expect someone not to stay in house all life, the dog very well can come along or be managed with dogsitters. To take a shortcut and kill an animal just because its easier on the original owner, instead of re-homing, admitting one has failed in educating or whatever therefore not seeking professional help... One can do that, yes, but it‘s not the only solution to behavioural problems. Those are temporary problems that can be fixed in different ways. Not all without medication, but death is never an answer for a temporary problem. I just know the phrase as I wrote it: Death is a permanent solution for a temporary problem.

EtcetEraThread Busting Male Rape Myths: Why Male Rape is de-emphasized, underreported, and ignored.
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Misrepresenting feminism; blaming feminism for rape culture, Inflammatory commentary
I think that laying this all at the feet of toxic masculinity is a disservice, it is much more complicated than that. Feminism also plays a big role. Just look at the guy in this thread who was date raped while drunk and then had to qualify that he wasn't trying to equate the impact to what a women who was date raped would feel. That isn't toxic masculinity, that's a fear of equating a man's experience of sexual assault with a women's, which the current feminist view on sexual assault considers unacceptable.

[I get zero sense of "outrage" from his comment. He simply said if you do this your mentally ill. I don't even think that's spreading misinformation. It's simply an opinion of his regardless of it being rooted in reality or not. Not sure how anyone could read that comment and think "oh man, why is everyone acting like this with their newborns" I understand this stuff is highly sensitive. But because of that I think people will take off the cuff opinions way more seriously than they need to be taken. The whole dev team does not deserve to be tossed under the bus due to some comments made by a couple of devs. Ones I'm not even sure are as severe as I'm led to believe from the majority of the comments made in this thread. Call them out specifically, get the higher ups to reprimand this guy, fire him, what ever. But stop trying to shit all over this game and everyone that had a hand at making it. It's PATHETIC.

Reason User banned (1 week): dismissing concerns over transphobia, false equivalences
Because at some point, we have to be able to collectively have a sense of humor about sensitive topics again. It can't ALWAYS be perfectly PC. And there's a growing backlash to the incessant "perfectly PC or else" dialogue that ultimately causes generally liberal people to move to the center because they get tired of being beat over the head with every little thing. It's like when I was a vegetarian in my late teens. It wasn't good enough for my vegan friends, who weren't good enough for monks that sweep in front of themselves to avoid killing bugs, etc. At some point, in some situations, a certain level of inappropriateness has to be ok if there is no intent to harm. Because otherwise, we're all spending our lives sweeping for fucking bugs. It's unreasonable, and counterproductive.

Reason User banned (5 days): Thread derailment in a sensitive thread
A lot of the reason that researchers focus on the male perpetrator-female victim paradigm (including, admittedly, myself) is that that's what you're going to be looking at nine times out of ten. It's important to look at exceptions to the rule (male-on-male is by far the second largest category) but you have to do so in a way that doesn't lose sight of the rule. You can't treat sexual assault as a gender neutral problem because it's massively gendered. With that out of the way, this is an issue that needs attention. The evidence that this issue needs attention is the ubiquity of prison rape jokes.

In being that "party animal", a girl walked up to me and drew up my shirt - guessing if I had trained my abs or not. I had not trained. I didn't think much of the matter, and continued my night. In fact, it was fun! --- It isn't weird why these things happen - is my point. Patriarchy isn't a experimental thought idea. Neither does ideology manifests in social relations just by being thought of. That occurrence was fun to me.

She came in, had a ton of amateur-style scenes, a few scenes with a single well-known male performer (JMac, before she became famous), and expected the payoff to be super high? It’s porn. You gotta put the work in before you start making Nicolette Shea/Alexis Fawx/Madison Ivy money. I also find it quite humorous that she goes on a radio talk show, flips out when they mention she was a porn star and ends the interview, as if she was famous or well-known for anything else, yet does these interviews dressed the way she is. She can’t really decide which side of the fence she wants to be on, and she comes across as a bit unhinged. And as someone mentioned earlier, she wasn’t exactly that good or exciting. She could deepthroat, but looked uninterested, and one of the only scenes she’s really good in is that one with JMac, and that’s because he’s a workhorse who carries lesser performers to a watchable match...err....scene. I told you, porn is like Pro Wrestling.

Yeaaaaaah no. For the record, I am attracted to all races, as long as the individual meets my standard for attraction, so this in no way applies to me. But, sexuality is not a learned behavior, it is innate. Also true is that certain races of people have defined physical attributes. I’m not going to get into that convo because it wouldn’t be productive listing off what they are, but to deny that claim is just false. Knowing those two things, if a person is not attracted to certain physical features, that doesn’t make them racist. It just means they aren’t attracted to them. Period. End of story. No need to overthink this. Now there’s a big difference between thinking an entire race is unattractive versus not being attracted to a certain race. The former is rooted in negative biases on physicality - “All _______ are unattractive.” - and believing it to be a general fact of life. The later is not racist and more along the lines of “I’M not attracted to ________.”

No I wanna talk about other things like how I disagree with how people are characterizing THQN. No I do. I take issue with what other people in that thread said. I don't think what THQ staff said was enough to condemn the whole company. I don't think THQ choosing not to fire those people is a problem. Someone saying "Where are the x at" (not completely quoting because I find it disgusting) and THQ responded with "You have them already we'd say". That's not an approval of what the anon said. That's not an endorsement. That's not them admitting that's in their next game. Someone else posted a picture of a knight saying "calm your *slur*" (again not completely quoting because I find it disgusting) and a THQN staff responded "this could be in one our games". They're talking about the knight character in a clearly tongue-in-cheek way not the fucking homophobia. (I hope, at least). Someone else posted "please don't censor your games nor appeal to the SocJus crowd, you're doing fine as is" and THQN staff responded "thanks! We'll try to stay that way". Not a fan of this statement but it's eh... not any worse than what UbiSoft does. None of this to me characterizes THQN as disgusting. Tacky and idiotic? Sure.

Reason User Banned (1 Month): Dismissing Allegations of Sexual Assault
Whilst I can sort of imagine KP doing this after a few drinks (I imagine she's a horrible drunk), the guy isn't exactly credible either. He's been infatuated with her ever since filming the Teenage Dream MV, to concerning levels (writing songs for her, planning an imaginary life together). His post where he makes the claims reads as a pity piece, he mention his gf was cheating on him which has no relevance whatsoever and says he was hurt by KP telling others that having to kiss him during filming was gross even though he was an actor and she a married woman. He makes out the alleged incident was traumatic and yet he sells dick pics and nudes on his onlyfans account. If it did happen, would someone so comfortable exposing themselves to compete strangers really feel all that traumatised having their ultimate crush doing it instead? To me this is either delusions from an obsessive man or cheap use of the metoo movement for some publicity. Having said that, of course it's wrong if he was exposed against his will but context is massively important too.

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Dismissive Commentary on Systemic Issues Over Several Posts
This was one of the tragic cases I was referring to with respect to police recognition of mental health issues. You have to admit this was very much a freak incident where there is little to indicate what motivated the officer to shoot, if anything. His reaction to the incident seemed that even he didn't know, and potentially regretted it. The only conclusion to draw is that he was poorly trained, and should have never been carrying a rifle. I can't speak to the details of the case. It seems the jury couldn't agree it was "attempted manslaughter" (and that makes sense really). But regardless of charges, he should have been dismissed. It's a tragic accident, but I fail to see how you can use this to draw sweeping conclusions about police behavior - which is something we like to do every time we see one of these videos. A handful of incidents on the internet amidst literally hundreds of thousands of arrests per year. There is a reason scholars devote decades to studying this sort of thing, instead of declaring they know what the problems are after watching a viral video or two. Every case is complex, and different.

That girl's voice acting just irritated the shit outta me for some reason, not to mention that goofy ' right nowww'. And i don't even need to see any gameplay. Those 5 seconds were enough. Looks exactly the same as nfs 2015 handling wise and judging from this trailer which again looks so freaking repetitive, i can see the devs laziness so i'm not expecting the handling to be any different but we'll see i guess. And 30fps? Nope i ain't touching no goddamn racing game in 30fps. When The Crew came out, i got it for ps4 and game played like a turtle. It was legit unplayable and looked like those old xbox OG racing games full of slow mo and loads of blur. When I tried the crew on PC, game felt like a total different and it was totally enjoyable to the point that I made those hour long races which takes you places from highways to cities then hills and mountains, which was awesome and refreshing. But nope EA will just stick to their core which has failed consequtively through the last years and looks like it's down the same outcome.

Also, you would have no reason to be dishonest about this and I should take your word as 100% evidence even though we've never met. Because you don't have to MAKE the content. Instead of having to design, code, and release a new skin you just tweak some numbers. All the content is already in place this way across the board. I have already addressed this.

Reason User Banned (1 week): Inflammatory Generalizations and Xenophobic Rhetoric
Most people around the world don't really care for uncivilized Chinese. With 100s of them coming into Hong Kong everyday, the chances of the Chinese population in HK being uncivilized are not liitle t, i am not surprised that racists remarks were used against them by Hong Kongers. We have similar comments here in Singapore against them too , because some of them are really uncivilized and rude (stop shitting and peeing everywhere man , Washrooms are everywhere ) :/ Not excusing the xenophobic behaviour but this protest bring out a lot of rage and comments like these are not surprising. They should direct the anger to the government though, most Chinese don't deserve the insults especially when they think that Hong Kongers are also their family. Fuck, i understand the anger but some protesters are doing things that will only do damage to their cause.

As far as I can tell there are only two methods that we know for sure will improve society, these are backed by economics/science/history. The first is we round up all the rich people and kill them, taking all their stuff and redistributing it after the fact. The second is make the rich people spend all of their money on stuff like the rest of us have to instead of holding onto most of the worlds wealth for their own benefit. This third option where they hoard everything and slowly choke the life out of most of the population seems like it shouldn’t exist but I guess a lot of people now think one day they’ll be the rich ones....

Floe was in a red mobility scooter at Evo. I would think it would be hard to miss a fat white guy in a red scooter taking a tiny asian chick out of the casino. Look, I have never met Floe in person, but I've been watching him stream, and yes, subbing to his twitch, for years now. He's a sensitive guy. When someone comes in and shits on his stream, or complains about what he's doing, it definitely hurts him - He'll be in a sad/depressed mood for like, 45 minutes. Those of you acting like lawyering up is an admission of guilt (Lopez): Fucking shame on you. These are VERY serious allegations to be making against someone, especially someone whose livelihood depends on individual contributions from others. I'll eat my words if I'm wrong, but I'm absolutely certain the man is innocent.

[Yes, I read the staff post. I don't believe the following contravenes any of the guidelines laid out. I have zero problem with refunds and think it is right that they are being offered. But it's a battle already won, yet every thread about this game just descends into the same old shit.] I would recommend reading my post again. I thought I made my point clear, but for absolute clarity: It is not about asking for refunds, as Ys Net have already detailed a response policy around alternative arrangements and refunds if none are satisfactory, and have politely asked for time to get things in place as they and their partners have other priorities also. Refunds are coming and systems are actively being put in place with Fangamer, we know Epic are paying for them so Ys Net themselves aren't damaged by it, and we know approximately what the response policy and alternative arrangements are. It's absolutely not blind faith with this much information provided and liability explained. What is maddening is the never satisfied, haranguing, even bullying behaviour I see in threads, comment sections, etc, screaming about refunds no matter the issue. For all the drum beating about backer's rights, these people really would prefer if everything else about the game and rewards fulfillment was thrown on the fire (at the detriment of other backers), just to get their money back a little bit quicker. It is the absolute height of entitlement given Ys Net, Epic, and Deep Silver are rightly going to offer refunds on the PC version if backers don't wish to take the alternatives provided, and have sketched out exactly how they are going to do so. Again, refunds are not the problem, refunds have already been "won" and are assured. It is the constant derailing, asinine screeching about REFUNDS WHEN that is really dragging Shenmue III threads into the absolute shit. It is near impossible to have an actual conversation about the game here, not that it was particularly easy before.

GamingThread YouTuber RelaxAlax sexually assaulted ex-girlfriend, emotionally abused & manipulated her as well as others
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Dismissing sexual assault with baseless speculation.
I've got an insane theory about the sexual assault that happened. According to her, she's got zero (ZERO) recollection of any sexual contact between them that night, which even if you're drunk, you would have some. She called a sexual assault hotline and they said if she had zero memory, she must have been roofied. I think what happened was that he wanted to "punish" her for being drunk and play this weird psychological game, so he told her they had sex that night where he claims she asked for embarrassing and degrading sex acts that made him uncomfortable (all of which he asked her to do for him later on btw even though he said it made him feel bad), so he could teach her a "lesson" about her poor behaviour in his view. But my theory is that he didn't roofie her or engaged in sexual contact, he just lied to make her feel bad because that's 90% of what he did in the relationship according to her. The thing is, Alex is a fucking moron, and he didn't realize he was basically admitting to date raping her. People don't have zero conscious memory of a thing like sex happening the night before unless they were drugged, and based on the way she described the night (they were arguing until at least 4am about her drinking), it really sounds like he just entirely made up the sex just to mess with her, but it backfired because he once again failed to think of her as a person and didn't think about how she'd react to having sex she didn't remember having, which means either he's a monster that drugged her before raping her, or he's a weird little creep that makes shit up in order to punish people. I'm betting he's the latter, but Alex is too obsessed with his image to admit to any of it. He really put himself in an unbelievably shitty position because he's so much of a sadistic asshole and a dipshit, that he tried to shame his own girlfriend with a lie about the kind of sex she wanted to have with him.

If you aren't talking about people in power enabling child abuse to occur then I don't know what you mean. It's like saying we shouldn't talk about Joe Paterno or the governor of Pennsylvania in a thread about Jerry Sandusky and the Second Mile. Or talking about the Catholic Church scandals without implicating cardinals, politicians and church officials. Institutional power enables men like Epstein to do this kind of thing. Saying the Clintons or Trump murdered him without proof is baseless though. Discussing how their connections enabled sex abuse 100% should be open for discussion. They are in his flight logs and were close family friends. Epstein was invested in Clinton's Global Initiative and there is tape of Trump groping women at an Epstein party.

EtcetEraThread What's the deal with antifa?
Reason User Warned: Hostility over a series of posts in the thread, misrepresenting other members
I'm sitting here, calling your "personal stories" anecdotes, accompanied by baseless bullshit you picked up from BILD. You still keep treating Antifa as a monolithic entity, as long as you do that, it's completely pointless to at all try and discuss this with you. You're living in your own little bubble. Going to any sort of demo or rally and complaining about people protesting violently is extremly silly, though, it's ALWAYS been that way, not only in Germany, and it has nothing to do with Antifa. As long as you refuse to get that, I'll continue seeing your experience as BILD level bollocks. I could write an essay about what I think of Antideutsche, honestly, they don't stand for a lot of what I stand for. But as long as we step up against Fascists, they're always "welcome" on my side. (Not like that's my decision or anything, since, again, not an organized group with memberships and shite) Thing is, a lot of younger people (most Antideutsche, really) are still blind to their ideology and quick to go down more extreme paths that Otto-Normal won't or can't condone, but those people aren't "Antifa", all of "Antifa", or even a large part of "it", they're just individuals with their own ideals. See the following response to West if that's not clear enough. And I'm sorry, if you felt personally insulted, but it's always the same damn stuff people who say "I'm left but not Antifa" bring up, it usually ends in "but they burn cars!" and eventually goes into the good old Hufeisen, I've little patience for that stuff, especially if I see someone isn't willing to budge from the stereotypes. You keep saying that Antifa is made up of small groups with cute little gang names in Austria, and I'm telling you that that's cliquey bullshit that has nothing to do with Antifa. And that's not really my bar, that IS the bar. Anything else is stuff you add to it because somewhere, somehow you've seen things that are associated with Antifa, it just doesn't work that way though. "We" don't shoo people away, "we" don't have a bar to pass, membership requirements or anything. Anyone who stands up against the same sort of crap as us, is with us. And no, that doesn't mean condoning violent protests, burning Twingos or whatever. It doesn't even mean liking it, or turning a blind eye to it. The way you, yourself, act as Antifa, is what you yourself are accountable for, what you condone, and what you think is right. You're not responsible for the actions of the Black Bloc or anything. Did that help to make my point more clear?

Reason User Banned (1 week): Dismissing concerns surranding LGBT representation over a series of posts.
Do games anything? What’s up with this new trend of criticizing media for not lining up with personal desires? I’ve said it before, but it just seems so selfish to want things to cater to . Yes, Fire Emblem (and the whole industry) can have better representation—I think it’s lame that there are only 3 gay male options—but don’t slam something just because it doesn’t live up to some idealized notion of what an entertainment product should be. Support the ones that make you feel good and ignore the ones that don’t (unless they are truly heinous, like that GamerGater’s Xbox game). It basically feels like the ultimate version of identity as consumer. You people are more than what you consume! I do agree that support dialogue being the same for both genders is dumb as fuck.

People keep trying to artificially inflate this game so they can nab another one in the sony exclusives list worth playing.

GamingThread Ooblets will be exclusive to Epic Games Store on PC
Reason User Banned (1 week): Excusing harassment and threats
A bit "late to the party" on this one, but despite how vile, hateful, and disproportionate these responses are towards the devs, I'm finding it hard to muster up much sympathy for them after their initial blog post. It reads so condescending and antagonistic, and despite making it clear that they're aware of how people feel about the EGS, the post somehow still comes off as completely tone-deaf to the situation. Hand-waving away some of the genuine criticisms people have towards Epic, their store, and how they conduct business, and then making some false-equivalencies about getting mad at things that "really" matter and telling you to get some perspective, despite this still being a product (video games are still products, right??), they just kind of come off like dicks. Bookending the whole thing with a gif of the Ooblets character flossing, which might as well just be a banner saying "deal with it", is kind of just the perfect, smug cherry on this already hostile sundae. It reminds me a lot of those assholes in high school who antagonize people into a fight, and then when they get hit go "Whoa whoa whoa! What the hell man?!" and act dumbfounded about what just happened. Do I think that they deserve this level of reaction? Of course not; you can disagree with them and call them out on their blog post without resorting to harassment. It's always wrong and there will never be a time when it's warranted. But at the same time, the post feels like it was written with the intention of inflaming people already upset about the EGS, so acting surprised by the blowback and looking for sympathy about the internet being upset with you when you were kind of an asshole to begin with feels really dishonest.

GamingThread Campaign for More Male Same-Sex Romances in Fire Emblem: Three Houses
Reason User Banned (2 weeks): Dismissive commentary surrounding LGBT representation; prior ban for similar behavior
If the creator of those characters and that story came out and said anything along the lines of "Yeah that was my original intent, but we ended up having to change it" then yeah, fuck yeah. Restore the creator's original intent. Further expand the world and characters. heaven's know Fire Emblem could use more characters that are more than just paper thin personalities... I dislike the idea of users imposing change to creative vision. Specially after completion of the work. I prefer user welcoming more broad changes going forward. Empowering creators to go ahead and explore those characters in their vision. I don't want professional game creators making my OC, i want them to create characters i gravitate towards. And if i can cast my OC in that mix, i'll do so gladly. Let me use a dumb and super extreme example. If an RPG had an Homophobic character... not implied... just straight up, homophobic... i wouldn't want the creator to remove that character or change it. I would simply deny that product my attention or money. Because that's his creative vision, that's what they wanted to write and make. And they are allowed to do that. Im allowed to find that dumb and 150% fucking stupid to do... and i can hope they never make a dime out of it and that their creative vision never leads to profit or success... but i wouldn't want to force them to change it "cause i really like the brand it's attached to" . On that same note... there is this... "many of the male characters already actually can have an implicit..." Implicit. So maybe the creator's intent was to be left to your interpretation cause they didn't want to get explicit about it. I would rather say "well i hope next time you feel comfortable going explicit, cause that soft touch implicit stuff is boring as hell... btw, if you don't, i just might stop caring all together." than going "we all know what you meant, just CHANGE IT" .

Are there toxic communities in other platforms? Sure. But their current platform is one they are comfortable with, and it's already an uphill battle getting anyone to switch platforms. Some of them are just looking for reasons not to take the plunge, whether its financial, social, ease of use, etc. We don't need to give them more pause. Sometimes empathy is needed instead of judgement. And also, this "constructive and rightful criticism" angle seems to be one that conveniently glosses over a person's chosen platform. There's a that Valve has ignored and I don't see a thread on it or PC people rushing to talk about the security risks of having Steam on their computers.

GamingThread Games should not be announced AT ALL unless they release within a calendar year
Reason User Warned: Antagonistic behavior towards another member.
Cry much OP? There is a lot to gain by announcing early. Investor interest, share holder understanding on R&D investment directly tied to a product, mindshare in the market with a slow burn marketing campaign, project interest from outside talent who will want to work with you (best possible type of recruiting) plus the internal cultural benefits to a project that isn't under lock and key from the public. There are many draw backs too, some you pointed out, but all you did in your OP is come off like a little crying brat who cant be patient for something. Hell the best example of this is FF7R, with the development crew feeling down after the first year due to project hardships, but being invigorated due to the insane support coming from the public. I remember one youtuber posting his story about the team being almost in tears from the outpouring of support and amazing fan response, and how much it inspired them to continue and make the best possible product. Sure some of that is PR spin, but I know how having people be excited over what you are doing is the fuel of the gods when you are feeling down. If you are excited about a product and its taking a long time, why not try putting some of that passionate anger you have there into a message to that development staff showing your support for the long hours they are working to get something out.

Looking at the blog post, we're at a point where the anti-EGS movement is just the next GamerGate ; it's the exact same methods, constant lies & misinformations, racism, sexism, hate speech... etc And what's terrifying is how much all of that discourse is being allowed everywhere, even here, how little is moderated everywhere you go — I wish there were more lessons taken from the past 5 years of online hateful propaganda. Coming from the industry, the most infuriating thing is seeing all of those posters - be it here or elsewhere - who spend days long writing lies and talking about an industry, jobs, people they don't know and don't understand. It's infuriating., I've stopped browsing any PC threads I could so I would stay sane not reading the constant nonsense from the same people.

It’s the dangers of entitlement and “the customer is always right” mentality. The industry is pretty tough for those just getting in, Epic Launcher has a ton of issues but aiming at helping out creators is commendable. Steam defense force hoping to harass studios that take these deals to the point that it scares other studios is pretty disappointing. On the flip side, feels like a lot of people have heard of the game thanks to this. Hope it helps the devs out after what they’ve gone through

I can't say I'm surprised by the reaction; this is how toxic the gaming community has always been. I'm not really sure how to curtail the behavior either because the worst 1-10% are responsible for the abuse. Unfortunately, this is the situation now because of Epic's image problem in the community and the repercussions of anyone doing business with them right now, which the Ooblets developers tried to do damage control pre-emptively, just extremely poorly. Not sure if Epic handling the PR themselves would be much better, but they could provide resources or tell Developers what not to say or do while making their exclusivity announcement like maybe not implying you can't care about Climate Change and not like the EGS at the same time.

I think the best way to combat this is for both Epic and the Devs to work tightly together when announcing their deals. Devs should not be the target of harassment and at the same time a lot of them could use help from an established PR team when its time to announce their partnership with Epic. The Ooblets scandal showed the worst of both worlds in my opinion. They need to be transparent and let people know about the deal with as much time as possible. At the same time a lot of people would do well to remember that the EGS is relatively new and a lot of games that end up going exclusive for it would've been announced way before the store existed in the first place. As such they would've, by necessity, already been announced for Steam.

Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Conspiratorial Rhetoric Surrounding Harassment; Prior Related Ban
This is the near "Fake News" type strategy. On the one hand Epic want to show that they will support developers signing up with them, which of course they should. Then they trivialise arguments against their service, and the Ooblets developers communication and stances. Without doubt, there has been a very loud minority doing awful things (as the internet does), including death threats etc, and perpetuating anger with doctored images etc. However, in this case, there has been ridiculous sentiment from the developer that is not fake, and even included in the developers blog - and their continued doubling down and dismissal of their own audience's concerns or opinions. It's yet again a super polarised set of approaches from loud minorities, and the overwhelming majority who didn't speak, painted as "gamers", "toxic" etc I was following the game since being wishlistable on Steam, and am perfectly fine with any developers taking any offers of exclusivity etc to support themselves / studio (outside of the obvious AAA's that don't need that), to save themselves from massive risk. But when you show utter contempt for customers and their choices and opinions that are fully justified with regards to EGS, that's me out permanently.

But here we are. Arslan won EVO Japan, came back to prove that he isn't a fluke and the Pakistani scene was secretly the best the whole time and not South Korea. When was the last time the "real" best player or scene was unknown to everyone like this in modern times? My background is Street Fighter and I just can't imagine the equivalent happening in that game. Same probably goes for players of many other games regardless of genre.

Reason User banned (2 weeks): rationalizing and justifying toxicity, personal attacks and extreme hostility over a series of posts in the thread
Is there any other way to discourage things from going in that direction? Especially given that the only 'normal' way, just deciding not to buy the game, is rendered absolutely ineffective by Epic forepaying the publishers for missed sales? It's not impossible to see how some developers may be discouraged to go for the deals, knowing how much toxicity can be thrown their way should they do it. Epic Games provides insurance against the passive and morally correct "will not buy your game" protests, and they deny users the ability to voice displeasure on their store, but they can't shield the devs and publishers from backlash outside of their platform. Just like with user reviews and review bombs, if you leave them no other choice people will go for it, and they'll do it because it works.

EtcetEraThread If gender is a social construct, how can we explain gender identity?
Reason User banned (2 weeks): transphobia
You can only call yourself trans because the social construct of trans exists. Don't worry, I've once had this exact response to a sociologist describing aspects of my self-identity to a T by talking about a group that have these aspects in common with each other. Sociologist don't deal in individuals, they deal in aggregates. A "group" is basically just a bunch of data that is both similar yet distinct as its own cluster versus other data clusters. It does not reflect on your individuality, though getting to understand that your of individuality is tied into the history of the language and culture that surrounds you might be difficult, since it's essentially an inside-out view. I don't mind if you reject this, but any serious academic discussion will be about , and not people. Identity is a concept, and everyone's understanding of said concept will be understood in their unique ways (yes, everyone is an individual), but we can only have a meaningful discussion about a concept if we all have an understanding of what that is. To answer the OP: it's the difference between actualized and possible, as people move through the medium of language into both self-awareness AND the culture they happen to be born into. Your language(s) will teach you both concepts (the 'what' ) and HOW those concepts manifest within the cultural area in which said language is spoken. The self will actualize along lines that the culture allows for, including gender identity, but ultimately the social categories available to self-actualize must be present beforehand, or be quickly constructed (a new word or meaning) and successfully diffused among others. It is possible for new constructs to emerge quickly, but the general 'selection grid' is bound by categories that have already been spread. Please be aware that this is a social science model of explaining social reality and NOT a reflection of power relations and / or politics as they too exist in human realities. Stigma affects everyone, yet all stigmas are themselves social constructs. So: Actual status versus possible status.

EtcetEraThread If gender is a social construct, how can we explain gender identity?
Reason User Banned (1 month): Transphobia, racism.
"trans racial" could be considered a thing in practice, in the sense that people adopt cultural racial signifiers and will even change their skin tones and use cosmetic procedures to look more like another race (derogative terms to shame behaving or looking like another race like "wigger" come to mind). However, clearly the experience that one is actually another race than what others perceive them as isn't as common or apparently as important to anyone's identity as gender identity is for trans people, so that I've never seen somebody who is clearly of some western European descent saying they're black. Also, attempts to adopt the physical characteristics or cultural characteristics associated with another race are usually made for the purpose of social advancement. Michael Jackson is at least an example of this on the perceptions side, since it seems commonly believed that he bleached his skin and got plastic surgery because he didn't want to be black. But this isn't to equate the two, rather to point out that as obvious as it is that race is a sociological relationship it is also easy to point out instances of behavior and perceptions of other people as being "transracial". To go back to Michael Jackson, would anyone who didn't know he was black think that he was black without being shown a picture of him in the past? I've also heard several people question whether or not Ariana Grande is black, for instance. And in the same sense the interstices of physical sex characteristics and gender norms can result in people who are "transgender", who do not conform to the common understanding of what it means to be a man or woman, although they may either themselves actively identify as one or the other or may be percieved as one or the other. But this doesn't necessarily mean that characteristics associated with either gender or race are located somewhere in the brain such that you can observe a given brain and identify what race or gender it belongs to. From what I understand, Male and female brains are almost indistinguishable from each other. It is very likely that a neuroscientist observing the brain of any given man, outside of obvious overall size differences due to differences in average body mass, would be unable to distinguish it from a woman's brain.
