GamingThread Insider: "Xbox Anaconda aims to be the clearly better performing device" compared to PS5
Reason User Warned - System Warring
As I said, they have invested before and what did we get? Halo and gears getting diminishing returns, sea of thieves adding to the 'release with no content and spending years adding more' group, crackdown 3 and one truly successful franchise in forza. Is adding more devs a good thing? Of course, but people defending Microsoft with the excuse of 'they are investing in games' are ignoring that this has happened before and in the grand scheme of things nothing has changed since they still have the image of having no great exclusives and sold half as many consoles as last gen and o ly managing that by essentially having their console on sale or bundled heavily for 90% of its life. Again, I'm pleased they are investing more in games but even in the best case scenario they do bring out a tonne of high quality and greatly received games in 4-5 years, can you blame people for not having faith NOW since they would have spent 15 years being known as the company with no great exclusives other than forza?

Reason User Banned (1 Week): Inflammatory and antagonizing commentary
That crowd has a very nasty habit of demonizing democrats, while at the same time backing an independent running for the endorsement of the democratic party. Theres a sense of entitlement that only the sanders crowd knows what's best for the party and the country, while at the same time doing jack fucking shit to canvass, raise funds, or otherwise assist any candidates running below the presidential level. Local politics- your state reps, senators, city councilmen etc are absolutely crucial in how the lives of everyday people are affected but the sanders wing is nowhere to be found when it's time to put the work in to get people elected and supported. I attended DSA meetings. Several in fact. The rhetoric is over the top nonsense about how democrats are the problem, democrats are in love with capitalism, and democrats need to be saved from themselves...presumably by sanders and his wing. This rhetoric has not gone unnoticed, the lack of downballot support has not gone unnoticed (from Sanders AND his supporters), and consensus among the democratic base is that these people can die in a fire.

GamingThread Japanese devs' obsession with child/child-like characters trope and how problematic it is
Reason User banned (duration pending): dismissing concerns around content including sexualised minors, whataboutery
I'd say that's very relevant exactly because one is fiction and the other is reality. Now if the fiction had led to that reality, that would be an actual issue but I'd still lay that problem at the feet of the people who let fiction guide their reality. So I guess the question then is rather, what kind of real life consequences are there of these characters mentioned in the opening that would constitute a problem? Are girls trying to conform with this image? (aside from 'non-norm' comic-cons I guess) Are guys who regularly watch this getting excited when they see a little girl walk by irl? Is that the concern?

EtcetEraThread So is Era really not normal?
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Inflammatory generalizations, cross-forum drama, and attacking the community
No. Considering one of the most prominent members of the old place was literally arrested for child porn, which plenty of people knew him well enough to band around him to donate money to before the allegations came out, you have to remember a lot of the community migrated from there to here. There are also plenty of great people here too, but unlike 4chan or reddit, the shitheads know they’ll get instantly banned for being shitheads, so instead of outting themselves they hide away and passive aggressively chip away at discussion/virtue signal/concern troll to try and get it out of their system. There is only one real topic that allows everyone to be as vitriolic as they want without reprecussion on here, I think that goes without saying what it is, and maybe you can observe and get a glimpse of a poster’s true colors. But other than that you need to follow the hivemind. The average poster - myself included - had no idea just how fucked up Amir0x was before the arrest, he was even pretty outspoken against bigotry, misogyny, and did his fair share of virtue signaling. This place is very far from normal and shouldn’t be an accurate representation of what the general consensus is in real life. Every poster shouldn’t automatically be taken in on the merits of “well, they’re an ERA member so they must be progressive and intelligent, there must be a reason for ” and every discussion shouldn’t be taken as analogous to how the majority of people in the real world think. That said, it can be a pretty neat place for discussion about certain subjects and it’s up there with reddit for me in terms of SFW forum posting

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Excusing Racism and Inflammatory False Equivalences Over a Series of Posts
Oh, also forgot to mention, I think she pissed herself in anticipation of the Sex. Yeah, noIt's ok, I don't expect you Americans to understand it. Years in this community have thought me that cultural context matters A LOT in being able to understand seemingly basic concepts. Every German knows, that if he'd imply the existence of biological human races in public, it would not end well for him or her. Does not mean there is no racism, it's just framed differently. The idea that there is no racism in Europe is just the weird take Americans always seemingly get from it, even though nobody ever claimed it. I guess it is just hard to understand that racism can work in different ways. I guess that is probably also because of different cultural backgrounds, and why americans don't understand how "white" brits can be racist towards "white" polish people. It's kinda similar to how black face is handled, and how Americans can't comprehend that most Europeans do not understand it as inherently racist. Actually... I think it's quite a good analogy. The same way most Europeans don't understand blackface, 99% of Americans just don't understand why "Race" can be a sensitive topic. And I think, that if the U.S. ever wants to overcome their "race" issues, they absolutely need to have this debate first, because the continued usage of the concept and word just cements the status-quo

You do know that you don’t have to play these games? If they are al the rage in Japan and perfectly legal there who are you to say that they should be banned or changed. Now if an English port breaks your local laws you are in your rights to take any action you see fit to get it of the shelves but who are you to decide what is appropriate for another culture. If their society has problems it’s for them to work it out. In the mean time don’t buy the ported games. Maybe buy a wholesome western RPG with females in bikini armor that are well above the age of consent. Nothing wrong with that right? Or maybe a shooter or open world game that lets you murder countless people because we are quite comfortable with that. I think as gamers we can agree that shooters don’t turn us into mass murderers. What are the chances that these JRPGs will turn us into child molesters?

Know a few people who worked with the author in question and based on their previous experience with the author this is par for the course. No reason to harass/go after someone of course, but it seems like the politics come before writing/truth once again. The worst part is this just gives more ammo for people against credible writers (even at Kotaku) like Schrier and (my personal favorite) Tim Rogers and the like. There are good people under the Kotaku banner that don't always get it right, but they usually handle it way better than doubling down, blaming their editor, and then fleeing the scene. Apparently they were told not to publically respond which makes sense, but still a shame this was so terribly handled and then the site just left the unaltered article up and just went "sorry guys we made the change promise but we need the clicks and can't get this damn edit button to go through" lol.

Yeah, because I'm American and educated in the horrific history of racism (and blackface) here, I understand why people should not do it. HOWEVER, I am VERY uncomfortable with someone being punished and bashed for simply trying to recreate in cosplay a character they love. The whole point of cosplay is to dress up like something you are not. Add onto that fact that this is young non-American person who had no knowledge of the history and I find it even more disturbing that people STILL want to pile on.

(i think the world got their first taste of that when lara logan got sexually assaulted during the egypt arab spring, i dont think anyone knew that was a thing before that) the vast majority of muslims live in arab and south asian countries and dont go around sexually assaulting women on new year's eves. and thats what he fails to realize, he is looking at cultural societal issues and appropriating them to religion. it would be like blaming all christians for uganda beheading homosexuals. aside from that blindspot, i find him very enjoyable to listen to and im muslim. sometimes you just gotta accept the fact that the person has their own prejudices.

Reason User Banned (3 Days): Arguing in bath faith by repeating refuted talking points across multiple topics
I was waiting for someone to make this "they called us pirates" argument. You seem to take that bit personally as a PC gamer yourself, but you wouldn't verify or read on how that comment/story originated. Please find some articles from back in the day and try to get some context on who said what. There were two people who made the note about piracy and one of them was Cliff Blezinski who people on this forum to dismiss and not take seriously. But somehow his words are now the word of God in this matter and describes whole of Epic's stance "Epic called us pirates and then left". As for Epic abandoning PC gaming, may I ask where exactly did they do that? Gears not being on PC was due to Microsoft's involvement. Every other game they made was/has launched on PC...except for the mobile title Infinity Blade. Epic also helped the indie game development and on PC none the less a TON with Unreal Engine 3...back at a time when developers were struggling to even just start production due to technical issues. They also went above and beyond to provide extra featureset for UE3 that one could only benefit from if they had a PC. The engine UE3 i.e. was originally designed simultaneously with Gears of War 1 so much of the engine was centred around making 30FPS games for Xbox 360..this was long before the pirate comment by Cliff btw..this was back when UT2004 was hit shit and people loved Epic. They could've just left it at that but they made the engine suitable for a PC environment as well despite its original design. These stories usually circulate because somewhere someone read something written by someone else who read it off an article with clickbaity paraphrased headline. And somehow they become the accepted truth even when it isn't.

Well no, I personally think it's ridiculous that of all things that you could get riled up about in this industry, it's about the EGS. Competition in the market is a good thing, Valve has droooopppppeeed the ball in terms of making their store front quality, they opened the floodgates to bullshit and they don't currently deserve the monopoly they have (or had). The EGS having exclusive games doesn't mean you have to buy a new PC, you just download a new client. It's annoying, sure, but the out of proportion reaction to the EGS is precisely why nobody treats gaming communities seriously, it's up there with "SJW's ruining Battlefield 3."

The more sensible crowd are bringing up Mortal Kombat, Devil May Cry, God of War, and so on because they know from experience that . The thing about censorship is that you have to keep an eye on it, or else it will start to take over the things you actually like. We already have throngs of people who say things like "Mortal Kombat/God of War is just some generic fighting game/beat em up built entirely on the explicit content and is completely unnecessary in gaming".

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Hostility towards staff
Funny to see moderators talking about toxicity when they allow so much trolling and misinformation to happen for months now. You didn't put your foot down in the first place so ofc all this shit will get out of hand. And spoiler alert..it will only get worse. Anyways.. sad to see JaseC go. Also best thing that can happen to this community is for it to be called SteamEra again and be put in community section of the forum. No one here gives a shit about EGS, Origin or Bnet here. Whatever popular games those clients have already have their own small communities on Era. And there is no reason for this thread to exist in gaming side either. This was always a bad idea and moderators trying to label Steam as not a platform was always laughable. Like anyone can look into the mirror and say services/platforms aren't the most important things about the entertainment industry today. The amount of shilling that goes on for namebrands on this site has reached an all time high. And Steam is a platform that shits on all these other PC services from the highest mountain. It absolutely needs its own community. _________________________ As for PS5 stuff..yea I don't really see why so many are eager to drop 500$ on new hardware especially after the Stadia presentation. I really hope Google lights a fire under both MS and Sony's asses. Enough so that I can play all the Sony and MS exclusives via any browser on any next gen like I did Odyssey on project stream. People can talk all the shit they want about streaming but the tech is legit. And hopefully it forces Sony to invest more money into PSNOW. Stadia having an extra year ahead of the new console launch should hopefully help them. They need to get all the casual mainstream AAA games on there and I think it will be big trouble for Sony/MS. Like 80% of the AAA games this gen were clunky and laggy open world games. And next gen it will be even higher %. These games are all perfect for services like Stadia and Odyssey proved it. So yea I hope next gen I can just spend 200-300$ on streaming games without investing into console hardware. It will be so much more cheaper and much more convenient. And I will have my PC for everything else.

And why do you think has caused this issue? There won't be any constant poking if the mods are actually doing a good job. I'm not talking about you or JaseC specifically, but most of us here just want a community where we all can feel belong. When someone got banned for a month for a make-believe infraction while other shitposters with a real history of shitposting practically just got a slap in the wrist, do you think they feel welcome here? When a community manager basically posting a tired old meme right in the middle of serious discussion without any real substance in the same post, do you think we feel they have our best interest as PC community at heart? Just food for thoughts.

Most of censorship boils down to emotional arguments. "Disgust" and "Wrong" are often used by the right wing to attempt to ban things, and we've seen this countless times from conservative religious groups, but it's really disappointing to see many in the US left wing succumb to the same emotional argumentation without coherent logical basis in anything. These content guidelines are never explicitly stated, they just make it up as they go depending on how much they need to address potential social media outrage. If some games don't fit their concept of fitting for "young minds", make it M-rated. Why Sony thinks it needs to overrule ratings systems that are already in place is beyond me.

Red Text Regardless of your local or individual experience with blackface, it is offensive and degrading to black-skinned people all around the world. It is not just an American issue. Its normalization in cultures without major black populations does not mean it isn’t a degrading and racist caricature that is insulting to the people it imitates. Someone not realizing the gesture is offensive does not negate its impact or the way it makes black people feel. It is not acceptable to excuse racist behavior on the basis of nationality or culture.

Because I can tell you I know fuck-all about it - a quick check of Wikipedia is telling me there's 264 African immigrants in Lithuania so I'm guessing their black population is pretty low and their ability to navigate racial sensitivities or knowledge of racial relations is probably pretty fucking slim. It's not a coincidence that this stuff keeps happening in countries with low racial diversity. If we're going to hold them up to our own standards there's gonna need to be a little understanding of their history, too.

I would people from ERA see this video, at least just the minute from 3:00 to around 4:00 This is the Blacks and Whites' Carnival from my country, Colombia. It is held every year, it is akin to the Rio Carnival, where people compete to have the best carnival floats, no so much about the dancing as in Rio tho. And it is very common for white people to paint themselves black, and black people to paint themselves white, and for people not just participating in the caravans, but in the public since it is a very festivity. So just as much as you are all asking for "common sense" and for people going to google for advice on not to paint themselves, and such, please just keep in mind, that the black face is not an issue, or prevalent on several other countries, just as many other posters have said about other countries. So please do not forget to take into account where this girl was from, and with what intention she did it. I do not blame Twitch since they are an American company and have all the rights to not want this type of content/situations on their platform, however please do not blame the person for having made the mistake to display herself on an American platform with no malice.

Yeah the idea that this might offend someone is completely alien where I live. Like, whenever I read about backlash on costumes or dances or whatever with regards to cultural appropriation, it really hits home how different one culture can be to another. As a Latin American, I’m more often than not just straight puzzled about the stuff that offends Latinos in the US. I’m not white, but I’m pretty sure I’d get zero backlash locally if I powdered my face for a Geralt costume, or painted myself black to cosplay Black Panther or whatever. Still, if you’re a public figure you need to understand and respect your target audience’s sensibilities, whatever they may be. If you fail to study and learn about what is OK and what isn’t in a given culture, you’re bound to mess up like this.

Reason User Banned (1 Week): Characterising blackface as an American concern.
Same here. In Spain this kind of costumes (with the painted face) were quite common during the carnival party in February (maybe they still are, I haven't attended to the party for a few years). The same way we have another public holiday on December where 3 disguised guys give presents to the child, one of them is black-skinned and as in many little towns or cities there's no volunteer to do the job, most of the times someone paints his face (the role is always a male, at least traditionally). So I can understand if someone don't understand the problem with this, if I think about the costumes I'm used to see in carnival it's pretty obvios that the roots are racist and the way they portray dark-skinned people is offensive and caricaturesque, so I think it's nice to slowly make people think about it and correct it. It should also be nice for some USA people to stop thinking that they are at the center of the world, and that other countries may not associate this to racism.

Reason User Banned (1 Week): Victim Blaming
Have you watched the video? He wasn't holding the gun, he had in his pocket cause ammurica I need a gun for self protection. Yes, it's his right as any other American, but is it necessary? Now some racist and/or scared ppl saw a black man with a gun (I guess you could see it through his shirt/pants) in/near a burger king and called the police, without thinking of the great second amendment, they where just scared because going around with a gun shouldn't be "normal" or a right. He was a black man in Usa so the scare from some ppl was way more accentuated. Now, for me the idea of having a gun for self protection is pure bullshit, at least I can barely get it in a home/store situation (barely because we have read multiple times of kids killed by playing with a parent gun at home, in Italy too), but just going around with a gun because you can is crazy. If someone try to rob your phone on the street you just shoot him? That's the whole idea behind the second amendment? Oh no, you shot him only if you fear for your life, and do you really think this will ever work? I would like to see what's the good that second amendment has done in the history of the Usa. Now, going back to this case, the victim was in the worst possible position (metaphorically and literally) and didn't helped himself going any better by his strange position and lack of communication. He was scared? Yes, of course you can say that by seeing the outcome and know the whole situation. I've seen black mans got shoted by Usa cops without having any gun and with free hand raised in the air multiple times and I've seen a similar situation where the suspect wasn't receptive with lack of communication and when he had the chance he just assaulted the cops. Being a cop isn't easy, this is why only who is extremely well trained should he a cop. The victim in this case just followed the cop oderd to put the gun down because they just told them that there was "a black man with a gun" around there, so they assumed he was holding it for some bad reason, so the victim actually extracted the gun from a semi blind spot. The whole situation was extremely confused. I was saying: Just let him raise his (free) hands in the air and then tell him to lay down. But this wasn't actually applicable because the victim was hiding his hands, he was in a strange position where you couldn't saw exactly his hands movement and the cop just assumed that he was holding a gun cause that is what they told them. If you add the fast trigger super panicked cop you have this result. We need to start to go at the head of the problem and think "what are all the causes that lead to that situation?" And there are a lot of causes, most of them cultural, by absurd laws, by racism, by unfortunate circumstances, by lack of proper training etc. Just saying shit like "Acab burn them all down" is the same insane shit you hear on muslims after a terroristic attack, it's just braindead nonsense. Let's start do be constructive and not destructive, otherwise we will have this issue over and over. By just venting on the single cop (or all of them) without thinking at the whole situation that lead at that outcome is just useless and doesn't help fix the issue in the long run. And don't call this cop apologizing or victim blaming, this is just trying to analyze the fact from multiple perspectives. If you just want to know if I think that the cop is guilty: yes it is, but at the same time I blame whoever put him in that position since he clearly can't do this job, whoever miscommunicated the situation and at the same time I blame the whole gun culture that does only harm.

Reason User Banned (1 Week): Defending blackface, false equivalencies
I am from the Netherlands as well and even coloured, many people are not aware of anything of this in Europe. We have zwarte piet and sinterklaas from Spain here in the Netherlands where its a national holiday primary for children to get presents from Sinterklaas. White people are painted black pretending to be black and work for sinterklaas in helping to bring all presents and candies to children (see image). As a child I never saw any offence and found the zwarte piet cool. Only later I found out some coloured people took offence of this holiday for obvious reasons (since the setting does resemble slavery) and this has been a debate in politics in the last few years.I would like to think that it would still be allowed if a white person wants to paint themselves black, not out of disrespect but out of joy and respect, for example pretending to be a black hero. Otherwise wouldn't being coloured be seen as a shortcoming instead of something to be proud of in a way that it is not allowed to go and cosplay certain diseases and shortcomings. Similar to the controversy around the soccer player Antoine Griezmann: I believe he genuinely did not do this out of disrespect, but the opposite, out of respect and as representation of the 80s era where having a large afro was cool (may dad had this as well in the 80s). I still dont see an issue with this. Edit: But in the end if many people take offence of these practises I do believe this must be respected

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Downplaying racism. History of severe infraction.
Racism isn’t as prevalent everywhere in the world as it is in America, in some countries colored people don’t understand why people “want to be a victim that bad” and that’s not my text. That’s just a different viewpoint from a different country because things work differently elsewhere. Wouldn’t it be better if people sincerely don’t think it’s racism to paint your face black or white? What if we managed to combat racism so much making these situations possible? At one point in the future we must reach a point where we can say that racism is more or less dead (hopefully) at that moment, still calling things like these racism will probably only keep the very idea of racism alive.

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Excusing Blackface; History of Severe Infractions
Because America and American history aren't the center of everyone's lives and world. She lives in freaking Lithuania. Why in the world would she know about blackface? She was doing it with good intentions. Americans are literally the first one decrying things they find offensive yet the offensive shit they do are passed on as humour or some other bullcrap. Some Lithuanian painted her face black to represent a character she likes - wow she's so dumb - meanwhile American tourists posing butt naked in religious sites, wearing shorts and tank tops in shrines, etc do you think these Americans think they're being offensive? No. They think it's all normal. See how perspective works? To anyone saying wow why did she not Google - I mean seriously? Who Googles whether or not painting their face in any colour as offensive? Again, America is not the center of the world. Stop applying your standards elsewhere because more often that not you're the one breaking and disrespecting cultural norms from and in other countries. Ridiculous that some girl in some country has to know about blackface. It's you who made fun of others by doing that, why should others who never did anything have to bear the responsibility of educating themselves of mistakes you caused and perpetuated? Imagine you go to some country you've never heard of and you tell them to not paint their faces because of a shitshow you put on a century ago.

I live in Europe and I dont see anything offensive here, because it's just a cosplay and she wanted to look as closely to the character as possible, but judging by your comments Tropic Thunder should be one of the most offensive movies out there and Robert Downey Jr. career should have ended with this movie. I know it isn't the best comparison, but come one, it's sitting with a score of 7 on IMDb and I never heard that this movie is racist. Would it be ok if I cosplayed Robert Downey Jr from Tropic Thunder? Even to this day people constantly use "survive" gif which should be super racist but somehow isn't? I don't know, this racism thing is confusing.

Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Excusing blackface and downplaying racism
As an European, I can't see what was wrong with her cosplay. She didn't mean to do it in an offensive way, as for the Griezmann controversy it's more of a tribute there's no mockery and it's a sort of tribute. Colors exist like it or not, we just don't have the kind of bad association Americans have regarding skin color. That's why there's no understanding in this thread between non Americans which are talking about the intent of such cosplay and that they are not meant to mock or caricature black people and Americans which consider those things as taboo. While I understand both point of view, some people are really being narrow-minded and going hard on people without taking into account our cultural differences. Besides, I don't think that forbidding black people cosplay (AND COSPLAY ONLY !) is a very good way to move forward on those kind of social issues even though I can clearly understand what could be found offensive but people need to have a little more faith in others.

Neat cosplay. I disagree with the reaction of many posters in this thread. It all looked to be in good faith. That seems pretty mean-spirited. I know you're talking to someone else, but I'll say that as a general matter of course that I check myself when posting on resetera now. I have for the past year or so. Certain opinions need to be very carefully expressed whereas others - like one user name-calling another provided the name- hasn't taken anything resembling a position that is frowned upon on certain issues - may have much more latitude in how they're shared. To be clear, this isn't a disparagement of your post (although my first, standalone line does make clear I don't like it), more a concern that if I were to respond in earnest that I may not be granted the same liberty, and that the person you were responding to may feel the same way as I do (even if you were angry, I thought you were asking a question for which I could supply an answer). For what good efforts at dissuading certain types of poor posting do, there is a very real danger to that can quickly balloon out of control.

Even something as essential as Space Exploration needs to have a monetary gain behind it, else no commercial company would touch it. It sounds rude and dis-humane but that's the truth of it. it's nice to think that company should create a hammer that can be used by everyone, to toddlers to grandpas, but it's bloody hard to do and you know it, and second - they don't want to.

GamingThread "Yet Another Generic White Dude" - A legitimate discussion on criticism regarding character design diversity
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Characterizing inclusivity efforts as extremism, dismissing concerns surrounding representation, previous severe infractions
It's a more western thing (not racism, that is a worldwide thing). I don't think Bollywood, african or asian movies are asked the same questions for their movies, most places don't allow for massive immigration from all around the world anyway and/or are not attractive for immigrants enough. I don't think you will find many african movies with white or asian protagonists (aside from South Africa and that probably has already changed), or Bollywood movies, or chinese or japanese (that are not anime) or Pakistan movies that feature white or black protagonists etc. The bigger part of the world is more focused on its own people.Asia has their own versions of Hollywood, there are also african movies (not as many as in India for example, but they exist), only the west wants to provide movies and media for the whole world. For the US it should be normal to include black and asian people anyway, they are part of that country since hundreds of years. As for your nationalism vs. racism thoughts i agree as a german without migration background, it's a different situation than in the US and many americans won't find it easy to understand that (as it's hard for many europeans to understand the US racial debattes). I see americans with hispanic background talking against whites that i would deem white in a european context....... A bit off-topic: I love Ex-Yugoslavia states though and if you feel better, as a german you will get some shit there too lol (many stereotypes, not only in croatia, there we are called Svabos). UK or france is much more hostile to germans (some people) though. For me the whole racial discussion in the US seems a bit counterproductive and even more dividing. As for movies i guess most people (besides extremist minorities) won't care about the race of the protagonist if the movie or game is good and interesting. It's probably different if you change an established characters skincolor and heritage.

So the YouTuber is profiting from showing detailed instructions how to crack a device and enabling playing pirated games? Homebrew is nice, but there is no point of cover up with a smokescreen here. This instructions are mainly used as basics to use pirated games. The YouTuber knows this, Nintendo knows this and his viewers know this too. Defending big companies maybe pointless (but it strangely seems some think big companies are always bad, no grey area allowed). But exploiting the work of others like the YouTuber does and profiting from it is nothing good too. It's not about good David against evil Goliath. The YouTuber is a company too if he is profiting from his videos (and some of the "Homebrew" YouTubers are supported by companies that run pirate websites anyway). It's only about two morally wronged parties against each other. There is no point in defending any of those two.

If the first thing you see when you look at someone is color you are a racist. If the only important character trait is sex you are a sexist.

When kids play they dont pick heroes based of color they pick off courage and badassery. No kid ever said I would like Spiderman but he's white or I would like Spawn but he's a black. Not ever. White kids argue over who gets to be Black Panther same as Mexicans argue over who gets to be Wolverine. Kids dont see color or need representation. It's a way to divide us and push certain agendas. I saw a trailer for what may be the best Star Wars game ever. That's what we should be talking about. Not complaining a character in a game is a certain race and sex.

Reason User Banned (1 Week): Dismissing concerns surrounding racism and history of reinforcing stereotypes
I am aware of how the portrayal of MSG and it’s supposed health risks was used to smear the reputation of Chinese food as it first became popular in the US. I don’t think this person deliberately evoked an outmoded xenophobic tactic in opening her own NYC Chinese Restaurant. I don’t really feel offended by her efforts to bring the novelty of branding her Chinese food as health conscious. At the end of the day, if her food really is exquisite, she can make a splash and legitimately earn her place in a very competitive culinary market. My worry is that we have much more legitimate and troubling issues to overcome in social representation, and I question if highlighting a innocuous if not thoughtlessly spoken resteraunteur as an oppressive target is really the best way to rally and organize for a meaningful purpose. To me, the thing that sticks out is that she found an ethnic cuisine she is passionate about and inspired by to put her own spin on.

Kadri should be suspended But ugh I’m fucking disgusted at all the other plays that went unpenalized Honestly if Toronto loses this series then Shanahan and Dubas should get fucking fired. Fuck them completely because all of this should have been predicted by them. You know the Bruins physically outmatch the Leafs. You know the refs will put away their whistles. And you know that no one on this team other than Kadri will step up to defend anyone. And you fucking know that Kadri isn’t a fighter, is fucking retarded and is going to lose his temper and make some kind of dirty illegal check. Fuck off. Dubas and Shanahan did nothing to prepare for this. Another year. Another first round match with the Bruins and another suspension for Kadri. Of course Kadri is to blame but there are external factors here that shouldn’t be ignored. And Shanahan and Dubas’s inability to mitigate or account for those external factors is a hallmark of incompetence. Fuck then and fire their asses.

Reason User Banned (2 days): thread whining
First of all, thanks for the thoughtful and respectful response, I appreciate that. I agree with what you're saying. But isn't it a little bit biased already assuming, that his perspective or the portrayal of Cal could be boring? It might as well be, we can't know yet. And in no way I wanted to insult or diminish anybody. I just wanted to state my opinion. Obviously it's not overly welcome it, at least it seems so to me. I'm sorry if I offended anyone, that wasn't my target. I personally are just a little bit annoyed by the fact, that everything has to be political and that there are so many discussions nowadays. Like you correctly assume, it kinda bothers me or takes a bit of the fun away, to always see such discussions on the medium I love since I was a child. Honestly after a saw the thread title, my first thought was "not again". Because to that point, I was just happy that there will be a new Star Wars game, with Jedis, single player, story driven. But since any more discussion won't help on that matter, I just let it be and look forward to the game :)

Reason User warned: Thread whining
Let's just forget that Battlefront 2, the new trilogy and Rogue One had female leads and diverse Co Stars. But only a few hours after the new game has been announced, there's already such an unnecessary thread. Isn't it kinda racist already thinking about the fact, that a non white/male Character would be more interesting? I find it tiring, that such discussions are now a norm, especially here. Sorry if all those points were already made, I didn't want to read all the pages. Might get banned for drive by or whatever. But seeing more and more of these kind of threads/discussions over problems that aren't really there, but people just can't see something not be diverse or perfectly correct, are taking away the need, urge or fun to post anyway.

Why being so egocentric? I was talking about an overall climate that's beginning to annoy all the devs of the world because each minority wants to be vocable for very superficial reasons.Solving a micro injustice only lead to another injustices. Don't you see the absurdity of the situation where each minority in the world will begin to claim their spotlight? It's not possible to please everybody and devs now feel obliged to censure themselves by our fault. If really something has to be "fixed", we better concentrate our efforts on law. Please, leave games alone.

On Ilhan, quite frankly, I support her but she has made multiple unforced errors and that is on her. I know she means well and I wish her the best but she needs to have a prepared speech proof read in the future (factual errors/wording being inappropirate). AOC is also a very progressive congresswoman but she doesnt make these unforced errors. Its not always just about race/gender/religion. Ilhan makes unforced errors. Maybe its a learning/growing process. Hopefully she gets better at it.

This really seems like pre-mature criticism. Respawn just released a game where the playable characters are more diverse than the demographics of the two markets which'll be playing it (USA/EU). Token diversity is stupid (ex: female and/or PoC for the sake of being female and/or PoC) the character's origins/backstory should be driving factor in this kind of decision, and given Respawns' recent record I'm sure they did just that.

The reality is "Some people did some things" Is a career ending soundbite. Yes, Resetera is 'woke', yes we know the context, but that soundibte is enough to get centrists, lefists, and right wing infuriated. Because believe it or not, that soundbite is damaging. No, you do not become an islamaphobe for criticizing it. No, you are not racist or sexist. That soundbite is enough to end any career. Especially when her allies, Democrats, won't defend her. Especially when it's enough to be taken out of context and to create a damaging video like this. Taking that quote is bad faith. That is understood. Not understanding it? Tell that to the average person. The average person lives and feeds off sound bites. Not everyone is as woke as everyone on resetera. This is disastrous tbh. No, this doesn't mean I'm appeasing the right. It means that I understand what words mean to the lay people. To the people who don't have time to discourse over what words mean. Trumps video is terrible. It paints a target. It's fucked up. But it takes advantage of a soundbite. It takes advantage of the fact that the majority of Americans aren't ear-to-the-ground as resetera is. Not everyone is as smart as we believe we are. Not everyone has time to understand the context of what is said. They see a video, they see what a person says, and that's it. Will they search for deeper context? Alot of times, no. This is levels of "Deplorables" from Clinton, where that soundbite will be taken out of context. This is not islamophobia. This is not racism. This is not sexism. This is reality. Look at how the hardline democrats are not defending her. It would be career and political suicide.' This is all IMO. Of course. But well.. it's a career ending soundbite. This will be used ad hominem for the future. From her political opponents, both dems challenging her seat and republicans. Because, believe it or not, 9/11 is still a sticking point for many americans. Many, many Americans.

The poster would be instantly banned. The irony doesn’t miss me that Omar is black, but I guess her Muslim heritage supersedes that. Which brings me to my next point . The amount of intolerance and ignorance against Middle Easter/Islamic people is disgusting. And then the slight mention of Israel people supporting a terrorist, fascist and racists regime gets a person a ban is disgusting and gross. I’ve brought these issues up via reports to moderation with no avail. So it leaves me that this forum Could not care less about any of this. As long as it doesn’t disturb the status quo.

When the new Bill Burr special that was taped in London releases for example, a lot of fingers will be pointed at him about some issues. But he was funny and always had a point. I want to get ERAs opinion on this guy I recently found, I find him hilarious:

GamingThread Witchfire announced (The Astronauts, FPS)
Reason Warned for downplaying the actions of a group founded to harass people
Looks pretty awesome. The photogrammetry of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter was about the only thing going for it (was severely let down by the ending), so to see their technology now being used in a grimdark first person shooter is very exciting. I don't really care about the politics behind the scenes of games. But a at his opinions about the GG movement doesn't reveal anything alarming to me. Criticism of Feminist Frequency is fair - criticism and arguing your side, which he has done, is not harassment. There are a ton of counter point videos to the Tropes vs Women series on Youtube, enough to lead me to believe that there is an argument worth having there, instead of just accepting that what Sarkeesian says goes or you are a misogynist. He has also raised fairly legitimate points about the nature of games journalism. Just a few years ago it was a hot topic with Dorito Pope and swag bags, yet is now fairly taboo to even talk about it in case you appear as pro-Gamergate. Nothing he's said leads me to believe that he endorses the toxic part of Gamergate or far right ideology. It reminds me of Trump voters. It would be wrong to assume that the only reason people supported Trump would be due to bigotry, in the same way that saying a person who is pro-Gamergate automatically means pro-harassment. I've seen enough intelligent, nuanced opinions from both sides of the spectrum to realize it's not as simple as feminists / Trump / Gamergaters / liberals / right wingers = evil. If people don't want to support it because they want to stay as far away from these viewpoints as they can, that's fine by me. I don't think any of these developers are Stormfront-lite monsters though and wouldn't frown upon giving them money. It's the same deal with the developers of The Last Night and Kingdom Come - both controversies turned out to be tepid at best. That's all I have to say on it really.

Adrian falls firmly into the second camp, so I have no problem with it. Now if he started to post some fascist regalia on his twitter that would be the first case.

GamingThread Dev on Sony’s Crossplay Stance: ‘Families Want to Play Together and Nobody Owns Four PlayStations’
Reason User banned (1 week): platform wars and spreading baseless conspiracy
All right, let's go off topic, I guess. The problem with crossplay is also the problem with how consoles are designed now, as well as the problem with how games are developed now: homogenization. These elements, and elements like them, all conspire and combine to create a homogenous situation where there is only one platform and only one truth and dissenters don't exist. This is not a conspiracy theory. It's something that people have been joking about for a while with their "why even have multiple consoles" comments, which... stopped being jokes very fast. Steam usually comes into the picture, for obvious reasons. If not handled carefully, this is regressive rather than progressive. I don't think I need to explain the idea of competition here. By the way, this has nothing to do with Sony's (supposed) stance on crossplay, absolutely nothing. That is an entirely separate topic. If you do want a conspiracy theory though, we're at the point where a dev could totally get away with lying about some part of this. I'm not a detective and so I can't afford to care about things like that too much, but I don't wanna hear people take devs at their absolute word when these devs are businesses too. If you look at the actual supported list of games, there's no way Sony could be locking much of anything down: there's no pattern to what games are supported on what platforms. You keep saying I'm defending Sony, and that this "speaks volumes". If I'm not defending Sony, it doesn't say a word. . Again, what I said above about crossplay has to do with what Sony's doing.

This Cross Play begging is tiresome. I wish it was a ban-able offense here like port begging. Whats obvious is that consumers want it. Why wouldn't they? But whats not so obvious is that like exclusive games, a walled platform is in selling hardware especially if you are the leading box console. We all can hate on it, but whoever has the lead has always done it, since the beginning of online games. Microsoft isn't a righteous pro-consumer advocate. They haven't changed. They just don't have the lead so that strategy doesn't work in their favor. They want you to buy an Xbox and still have your friends to play with, which most of them are probably on PS4. I wish Sony would fully open the cross play gates, but I also understand they are a business and that it would be bad for business for them right now.

There are modern studies of the genocide that conclude that the killings were pretty evenly distributed between both sides. To me it seems pretty clear that the winners got to tell their own version of events and because all the outside forces had left the country it just stuck.

Yeeeaaahh... maybe let's not normalize eating oneself into a bundle of crippling health issues, a grotesque mockery of the human form and an early grave. I say this as someone who has, since about age 9, fluctuated between borderline overweight and outright fat. (Although never bad, thank fucking god.) It's not a good thing to be. It fucking sucks on multiple levels. Don't fucking glorify it. Yes, media images frequently promote unhealthy and unrealistic expectations of beauty and slender/ripped body shapes. But this isn't the answer. This is the definition of over-correction.

Liana Kerzner is definitely a great source of objective analysis on topics like this. I think, in the end, it comes down to finding a happy medium. There's definitely a line between a female character showing off her figure because she supposed to be strong & independent and a female character whose just a sex object. The thing is, you need to analyze the character as a whole before you can make an assessment on that.

By attempting to make all of their games look like shit online in kind of a fraudulent way by abusing a system meant for legitimate reviews, you're attempting to make your 'vote' of whether or not to support the company and force it on other people.

Reason User Banned (5 Days): Vilification of journalism and media; conspiratorial rhetoric
That’s exactly what is happening and the fact people are falling for it makes it even more laughable. Tim really is doing everything he can to garner sympathy for Epic whilst simultaneously screwing over consumers and engaging in anti-consumer practices and behaving like a marketplace bully. Like you say, a fringe opinion from a bunch of people on reddit who think the Chinese government might be collecting data has now been made the front and center argument to protect the shady stuff Epic are doing and handwave it all away. And then to cast a wide net out and throw accusations of racism/xenophobia at people who take issue with what Epic are doing is absolutely insulting to people who have to deal with racism/xenophobia on a daily basis. The media using race as a manipulative tool to disguise poor business practices and deflect away from real issues, I am shocked, it’s almost like the media don’t actually care about racism/xenophobia and just use these topics as a way to cause conflict between people and deflect away from things. Like I said before, I have no doubt there is an element of racism/xenophobia involved from some knuckle dragging idiots when it comes to anything related to China but to pretend a fringe element represents the majority view and to cast aside the real concerns and put this front and centre is incredibly disingenuous, especially when you consider the majority of people who even mentioned the Chinese connection made it abundantly clear it was because they do not trust the Chinese government and it has nothing to do with Chinese people or race or xenophobia.
