At some point people ought to get warned for simply posting "EGS = no buy" in every thread regarding games announced as exclusive on Epic's store. Like, it's okay not to post. It's like posting "PS = no buy" on a TLOU thread. OT, this looks like an interesting horror title. I do like it when time travelling goes awry.

EtcetEraThread Jussie Smollet has been indicted for filing a false police report.
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Ignoring staff post, derailing thread
Why don't you let users discuss issues publicly? Because to my knowledge every feedback thread this site has run has ended up with the mods closing it. Hell, I'm pretty sure there was a thread that was deleted from the server because people thought one of the mods were out of line. Gaf literally imploded because people were tired of the mods, there were so many thread closures and arbitrary bans during the last weeks. If you have a large amount of users revealing that they didn't post on a thread because they thought they would get banned, then that is signalling there is a major problem with the way this forum is being run. There is a major problem on this site when the mods post an official staff post that basically only accept what they want to hear. Royalan literally didn't accept people pointing out strange things about the story like the time, weather and area of Chicago that it took place and suggested that doing so is "victim blaming". That is a really ridiculous decision for a discussion forum. And no, the tensions in this community are not going to be solved by sweeping everything under the rug and suggesting everyone just vent to the mods via PM. This is not a HR issue in a company, this is a bloody discussion forum. Let us discuss it.

I'm gonna take this opportunity to call out RedMercury from the old thread. That person's attitude was extremely antagonistic towards other posters knowing full well that if anyone engages they would most likely get banned. Getting aggressive towards posters, making terrible assumptions about them, and egging them on to say anything while hiding behind the mods. it's quite frustrating to see people like that not get any warnings, while other reasonable posters get a ban hammer for engaging with them.

EtcetEraThread School condemns Trump-supporting students that harassed Native American man
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Returning from ban and resuming banned behaviour
Now that I'm not banned. That's not what I was saying, as a matter of fact, I never said they were lousy people for getting pregnant. I just said they were lousy people. You can be a lousy person without getting abortions also. Era just jumped on that bandwagon and went with what they do best and add controversial and irrational hyperbole to a few simple statements. Then once the mob started it was on a freight train to hell. Oddly enough absolutely no women responded to my comments (that I could tell) which was odd, maybe they actually comprehended what I was saying without jumping to conclusions? The people I was referring to were lousy people in general. For instance one of the ladies I worked with for a while and in that time she told me all of her hardcore sex stories, propositioned me, a married man with kids, on numerous occasions. She carried on with a relationship with not 1 but 3 men to which none of them had any clue and had 2 abortions because she didn't know who got her impregnated. She even got one of those guys to pay for the abortion and each of them bought her nice things and at least one of them wanted to marry her. She was straight up horrible. Eventually, it hilariously blew up in her face when the roommate that she was going to kick out her house looked at her ipad and found out she was going to kick her out for seemingly little reason other than she wanted to live alone for a while. So she took screenshots of all the conversations and racy photos and sent them to the 3 other guys that each thought they were exclusive. She then played the victim, wondering why someone would do that to her because she was so nice. Finally, yes I see abortion as a shitty thing to do. Like I said earlier, however, I think woman should have the right to do it because it is their body. But is it for me and my wife? No, we know how to live with our decisions. I look at my kids and sometimes and couldn't imagine them not existing. But to each their own. But fuck me for having a point of view.

That would have actually been helpful. Drive by "don't play" "do play" posts are useless to people looking for proper feedback, and me advising a user to ignore posts like that is good advice.

So, lots of actual outrage (as opposed to simple disappointment) from some people. And there were some here who said they will not buy the Switch version not because they don't want to double dip (some of these never bought the game) but because of "Square Enix's shitty behavior". And so, I present to you - Steins Gate Elite. Are you interested in the game? Were you/are you going to buy it on PS4/PC? But - Switch owners are getting the short end of the stick - they are getting as an extra what is (by all reports) a subpar 8 bit game, while PS4/PC version gets for free an extra VN which is 20-30 hours long... Are you outraged? Is anyone? (spoiler: nope, the maximum I've seen is disappointment). Is Spike Chunsoft being denounced left and right for being a shitty company? No? What are you saying? That I should buy the PS4/PC version? I'll leave it at that, letting some people think of their double standards (I doubt anyone will).

There's a reason we see the usual megacorp players all bet on the same horse. I'm happy that they all seem to fail spectacularly tho, at least critically. Bunch of creatively bankrupt hacks, the lot. Bioware sold it's soul when they joined EA and and I'll gladly see them offered up to the pile of closed studios if they can become detriment to other studios making the same mistakes.

I'm not defending that policy. But it isn't racist in itself. Its xenophobic, bigoted and completely unacceptable IMO. However, it wasn't a "racist policy". It wasn't targeted at "Jews or Asians or Black people" it was simply a plan to create a "hostile environment" to try and deter illegal immigrants from any race or ethnicity from entering the country. It is completely wrong. And of course some of the interpretations and implementations were racist. But the policy itself as abhorrent as it is, is not racist. It is also not a policy that is exclusive to this country.

EtcetEraThread Martina Navratilova: Transgender Athletes in Women's Sport Is Insane, Cheating
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Exclusionary rhetoric and transphobic talking points
I think we're more in agreement than disagreement. I'm super in support of trans rights and the many issues involved therein. But sporting competition is a very complicated thing, especially where these two issues intersect. Women's sports are separated for a reason, and the reason is that in a level playing field, women can't physically compete. If they could, women's sports wouldn't exist. As such, I'm generally inclined to support the amazing athletic women among us who are capable to doing remarkable things, and I appreciate the idea of protecting them against the others who can physically dominate them due to genetic advantages. Trans women pose an additional challenge due to hormone therapy and other circumstances. Those make for an exceptionally challenging environment for creating a fair - but separate - playing field for women athletes.

But tinging it with sarcasm definitely didn't help. I think people are extrapolating far too much from epics behaviors and assuming a lot of worst case scenarios. I think this article is very flawed as it's taking one aspect of epics behavior and assuming many other bad or anti consumer behaviors are coming and just as bad as if they are when they're associated with consoles. That's just wrong.thats what my sarcastic post was supposed to point out, is that it's not a 1:1 playing field. Console exclusives are much more anti consumer than having to download a launcher.

You are such a hateful, ignorant fool. You show exactly how Jews are informed about their history nowadays... Poles are the biggest group among Righteous among Nations. Poles were killed for helping Jews, but many still did it. Yes, there were parts of the country where this wasn't the case, but this was never the whole nation. France public gathered their Jews themselves and send them on trains, without Nazis help, but nobody ever seem to talk about this. nothing like that was ever a norm in Poland.

Reason User Banned (Permanent): Inflammatory generalisations in a sensitive thread, new account in junior phase
I think there is still a lot of emotional trauma from the Holocaust, even to this day. The fact is while not all Poles collaborated with the Nazis, a very VERY large amount did, and did so with satisfaction. The comments are wrong, but as a Jew and a third generation Holocaust Survivor, who's entire family were sent to Concentration Camps deported from Poland, fuck Poland's feelings. Why should I care about their feelings after what happened to six million of my people, Poland is very well documented about their cruelty and times of collaboration with Nazis. Anyone here doubting me should do a google. Plus I'll leave this here: '[QUOTE ...What he has in mind is, for example, , where in 1941, one half of the town murdered the other half, the non-Jewish Poles turning on their Jewish neighbours – people they’d known for ever, people they had sat next to– eventually herding hundreds of them into a barn and burning it to the ground. All told, they murdered 1,600 people. Only seven of the town’s Jews survived....Jedwabne is a singular case, but of the 3.2 million Jews who were murdered in Poland a sizeable number died at the hands not of Nazi Germans but of their fellow Poles. In , the Polish-born historian Jan Grabowski estimates some 200,000 Jews met their end that way. His meticulous mining of the archive revealed. Grabowski found case after case of Jews who had escaped the ghettoes and fled into the forests, only to be handed over to the Nazis by the Polish villagers who found them. Some Poles were coerced into taking part in this hunt for the Jews, but others were eager volunteers. The historian found documents that told how Bronisław Przędział, from the village of Bagienica, found two Jews while searching the woods near his home. After he betrayed them, Przędział demanded his reward from the German occupiers: 2kg of sugar. The rate varied. In some places it was 500 złoty for every Jew. Elsewhere it was two coats, formerly worn by Jews, for each Jew brought in. ][/QUOTE] So yeah, again, let's not pretend that Poland were saints here. They also recently put a new law in Poland regarding their involvement in the Holocaust. They know fully what they did, and instead of owning up they hide away from their history. They can go fuck themselves.

Or maybe they personally see it as another launcher and are at a loss as to why people would be so up in arms. Some people only care about being able to play games, and as such the EGS is literally just another launcher to them. Expecting people that want to join the conversation to have researched the situation is a bar that no other threads on Era are held to. Someone that already has Origin, Steam, Battlenet, GOG Galaxy, Uplay, etc. already installed may be baffled by this aggressive push back against a new launcher joining the fray. Now if it's someone with a history of entering these threads I can understand the irritation, but for new participants the PC gamers of Era are coming off as huge jerks. "But they are making us act like jerks" isn't much of a defense for this behavior.

I understand what you are saying, but saying it's a joke is your interpretation, not an objective fact. An interpretation based on someone else's testimony, unless you did play the game. You can choose to see it as a joke, but that does not make it true. I think the developers just wanted to show how she looked like pre-transition, as it is an important part of that character's life, and the purpose of that line is to show that her character has not changed at it's core, and that even though she has not transitioned yet, she will. I don't think showing her before transitioning is a bad thing to do, it's a part of the character's life. Is it offensive to acknowledge a time where a trans character had not transitioned yet? Time travel shenanigans create butterfly effects, why is it so unbelievable to think that something might have delayed her transition? Why is that so offensive? These are not rhetorical questions, I would love to hear what you think.

Yeah seems like there's a couple, I won't count builders title or 9 though, or mmo. These are the type where you create a character. More conventionnal DQ have cutscenes trought the game, it pretty much fix the mean for a Gender. I personnaly don't care if it's a boy or a gals. I would be like asking why there is not enough black people in Japanese game etc... I mean let's answer Japanese are misogynist and racist. I would believe it. Girls in Japanese games are,most of the time, some kind of stupid sex toy and black dude always some weird retards with stereotype all over the place. See, I'm french Canadian and in France, they do still believe we use winter dogs as main transport and clothed using fur. I'm talking about this level of stupidity.

They weren't all "victim blaming".

There's a huge difference. Even now, should ERA mods also ban those who are now questioning whether this evidence is real or not? Because that's essentially the same as what happened in the other thread that actually got people banned.

None of the above, actually. I'm trying to say that whilst criticism is fine. This "WHAT HAS ATLUS DONE TO US" mentality, and the "What Atlus is doing is harmful" rethoric is ludicrous. People can boycott the director, the producer or Atlus all they want. but to me this is just a boneheaded, out of touch thing the developer put in the game, that doesn't make the game any significantly worse for being in there. And as I said in my previous comments, the fact that Erica says what she says in that new ending, sure makes it seem like she still identifies as a woman, so I still don't get what people are so upset about here tbh

??? The game makes no value judgement whatsoever about this being a "better" life for Erica, the ending isn't about Erica at all. This is literally alternate reality hijinks with no message whatsoever besides "things sure turned out differently in this bizarro dimension". Same with the thread-marked post and how the game is bad about these issues because Vincent "hits" Rin or whatever. He slaps her hand to the side when she tries to touch his face in a moment of confusion. Yet in that post it comes across as if Vincent punches her in the face upon finding out that she's a dude or something like that. You want to talk about trans issues and how they are presented in Catherine? Sure, why not. What I don't get is the desire to always go the extra mile and dramatize.

Reason User Banned (1 Week): Transphobic Rhetoric
Hmmm, the way I see this, I think it’s mean to be inferred that the character’s life was improved because he was comfortable being born as a male, rather than being uncomfortable. In my eyes, I wouldn’t call this “transphobic” but I do agree that it maybe isn’t the most tasteful way about tackling the issue. I do believe in the game’s story, Erica transistions after a traumatic event happens to her, so perhaps in this ending that event never happened either, thus causing her not to transition.

I hope this thread has generated a good long discussion and a shitload of introspection and consideration from the moderation team regarding the standards and quality of moderation on this forum. Instead of just over-reacting and banning dissenting opinions, maybe there should have been an attempt to engage with people to try to understand why they thought the whole story was fishy (which it is now well beyond any reasonable doubt). Instead, this whole thing was turned into a massive race/culture war where those with power abused it to shut out those they didn't agree with and then got egg all over their faces when all of the doubts people had initially were shown to be legitimate and not just borne out of "white privilege" or whatever buzzword insult was being thrown around.

For me, the Epic Store is an necessary evil, one that thrives thanks to Valve's intransigence. Funny enough, I don't even have the EGS launcher installed. My backlog between my Xbox, PS4, Switch and Steam stretches to hundreds of games so I don't really care about EGS free games. Call me a 'fanboy' indeed.

I'm a 17-year old from India, who aspires to be a games journalist. I've made many mistakes, still do, but I'm trying to learn as I continue. Recently, I've lost my dad and all the responsibilities are on me. He had two local businesses, a restaurant and a PC store. Plus, looking after my mom and my younger sister. On the other side, I'm also studying and I'm in 11th grade. I described everything because I felt like I should and I've not posted this anywhere else. ResetEra has been extremely helpful and it always felt like a community.

America does not really have these sort of lynchings any longer. Had somebody throw something at him from a car or called him a slur, I would believe it. But you seem to fear that there are white people searching for non-white peoples to physically harm every hour of every day in ever place in America. Some people like this doubtlessly exist. They do not exist in numbers great enough to worry about.

Ms fans act like they are a cult. You can't say anything negative about Xbox brand. They will hunt you down you ask for a ban. You can't deny how great their games are and the whole media is wrong. But when it comes with articles saying Xbox is set to dominate nextgen they are right. They make 1-2 threads about negative aspects from sony. They point Sony as arrogant. Always the same users and it is fine. But if you show the reality to them how Ms lacks in game department. How bad there games are you get banned. That's how the cult of Xbox works in Era since last E3 allowed by the mods Everyone with eyes know what I'm saying is the truth. Everybody can see the whole threads created every week against Sony. How arrogant they are. Against Lauren, Ryan. Always made by Xbox fans.

Reason User Banned (1 Week): Excusing harmful sexual objectification
I very, VERY much doubt EVO staff knew exactly what was going to happen. Most likely everyone had their planned areas and stage moments along with time slots. Considering the heads behind EVO are American and companies featuring/sponsoring a Japanese event, in Japan, for a Japanese audience are Japanese... its hard to say where the line should be drawn imo. Let's face it, 99.999% of the from this is going to be from the western, English speak audience. Are you going to see this event or moment talked about on the news or even any gaming sites here, nah. Are you going to have the DoA event mentioned and show pictures of the celebrity ladies in skimpy clothes to promote it, you betcha. I've said it before and I'll always say it til it ain't true, different countries got different standards for what is appropriate, acceptable, or what is or isn't offensive. We can armchair blanket our ideals in our countries to apply to others over the internet but in real life its not how it works. This country has very little issue with this kind of display and we have known this for decades.gravure only. The one with shorter hair is actually one of the most famous women in the industry at the moment, on tv seemingly every other day.

This thread is fucking weird. Something close to the truth will eventually come out, what's the rush? One group seems to actually want someone to be the victim of a hate crime just to reinforce their "choice" to be a voice on the frontlines of our national conversation: the all-volunteer nintendo message board. Another is hoping to do that thing where they can say, "I knew this was shady, check my posts," but no one gives a shit. The mods are (rightfully) getting dunked on left and right for being controlling, obtuse weirdos, and I bet entremet has his hooks in somehow.

GamingThread Why are people so angry about Dragon Quest XI S?
Reason User Banned (1 day): System wars.
Because is not on Playstation. Is as simple as that. Let's say the switch and PC version dropped first and Sony six months later announced the definitive version with 8bit mode, orchestrated ost and all the goodies. People would simply assume that SE released the definitive game on the PS4. No complaints. But since it is on the switch and god forbids another platform that isn't the PS4 gets good stuff or Nintendo and Microsoft try to get exclusive content. We revolt. Playstation fans are just that petty. For some reason. They are like that. Some things never change. edit: another example is how people reacted to MS buying Obsidian. When Sony got Koijima Productions it was fine and dandy but when MS dared to have a good reliable studio then they were at fault and obsidian sold out. Yet another example is when Ninty saved Bayonetta. So yeah, no one has the right to have good games but them :/

EtcetEraThread The Justice Department discussed using the 25th Amendment to remove Trump after firing Comey, Rosenstein offered to wear a wire
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Conspiracy rhetoric
It's amazing how different our world views are. Even with Feinstein (months ago) and others recently warning that nothing is going to come of the Muller probe you still think there is corruption. Other than Manafort and company with crimes not associated with Trump, we have process crimes . These small penalties are in my mind proof that the justice department does not want a trial with defendants able to avail themselves of discovery. Why, because there were no Russians involved, it was a series of entrapments and setups to justify FISA warrants and more. Papadopoulos was given 10,000 in US currency just before his return to the US. Carrying $10,000 in cash across the US border is a crime, he suspected he was being setup and left the cash in Europe. He was arrested immediately when he landed in the US and his luggage was searched. Without the above all the FBI has is the following on Papadopoulos and key in his testimony (via Mifsud and company) is that Manafort and through him Gates are aware that Russia has dirt on Hillary and want a meeting. Papadopoulos is interviewed at the FBI. During that interview, he makes false statements about the above interactions. He claims: The FBI interviews him again. Papadopoulos deactivates his Facebook account. It had included information about his conversations with professor Mifsud. Why lie, leaks out of the FBI and Justice relying on the Steele Dossier, a paid for by the DNC hit piece, and guesses that Wiki Leaks received DNC emails from a Russian cutout who hacked and downloaded those emails assumed coordination between Trump's campaign and the Russians. Crowdstrike confirmed in error that the DNC server was hacked by Russians. Anyone associated with Trump was an immediate target of the News media and the FBI, all strove to deny Russian connections. According to Julian Assange (Wiki Leaks), he received his copy of the DNC emails likely from Seth Rich not a Russian cut out as a compressed file in a cloud lockbox. Since it was a compressed file, it contained the original file creation times; these indicate 22 MB/sec transfer speeds which were too fast for a over the internet hacked file and too slow for later internal disk copies but just right for a LOCAL high end flash stick or hard disk. Crowdstrike got it wrong here and in the Sony hacking where they said N. Korea hacked the Sony server, it turned out that was an inside job also. Flynn is accused of lying except the FBI interviewers didn't think he was lying. Remember the Trump team was horribly understaffed and Flynn was making many calls to other countries during the same day and he may have been confused about the content of one of those calls. Stone is another matter, he may have exaggerated his contacts with Wiki-Leaks and then had to deny the same resulting in Perjury.

Let's just say that it was really not giving me the example of how it all came from someone loving the game and wishing to make it progress... You could have been voicing your concerns over an event you feared might lean too much on the dorky side of the anime sphere, with the all too stereotypical and used up harem cliché, and I could actually have been agreeing with you on that point. Arguing that, at least, they were testing some new things and formats instead of relying on the same structure over and over again. And that the rewards seemed good, at least.

That's why nobody bats an eye here when you say the Flemish word. I can understand when you say it to a gay person he could get offended, but i'm not sure Deadmaus said it to a gay person. This post isn't meant to justify hateful speech in any way, but from my point of view it shouldn't be seen as homophobic EDIT: not defending deadmaus.

GamingThread deadmau5 banned from twitch for using homophobic slur on a twitch livestream against a "stream sniper"
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Excusing the use of hate speech and slurs
Because some of us, like myself, grew up using those words as insults. I would never consciously use them now to put down someone else because I know it's just a hateful word. But there have absolutely been times in the past 5-10 years where if I got really angry at something, my brain just starts dumping out words and sometimes those sneak in there. It's not like I stop and think of the best combination of bad words, shit just comes out. So to me, when I see people jump all over Deadmau5, calling him a racist and bashing his music, I see it as an overreaction. Because I've done it and I know who I am and where I stand. People say really stupid things when their angry.

Also known as the reason normal people don't say "she's probably lying" to abuse victims. If you don't care, the fuck are you doing here? Terms like "bitching" and "if they give a shit" prove without a shadow of a doubt who precisely do you care for. What are you exactly asking for here, screenshots of the actual correspondence between the studios and Sony? So convenient that you won't be swayed by anything short of confidentiality-breaching.

I'm making .. neither? I'm being realistic that unless we see how these things are going down we have no fucking clue who's saying or doing what. Either side is as credible as the other to me. Unless there is actual evidence of how Sony has handled the matter and how these studios have asked, this whole discussion is basically pointless.Talk about it and back up your claims then. Show a screenshot of emails with their partner manager/account manager/higher ups and what was asked/responded, don't just make vague broad claims and expect the world to believe you. I worked in this industry. Things are very seldom as simple as people present them, and very large platform holders have a lot more to lose from blatantly lying than small-time developers do from twisting the truth to make themselves look good. What nearly everyone here is assuming is that a top-level PlayStation exec told a black-and-white bold-faced lie on Twitter, after filtering through likely a PR team that fact checked the claim, and that in fact Sony does not allow developers to implement CrossPlay despite saying otherwise. I'm willing to bet there are requirements, costs, or facets of implementing CrossPlay with PSN that this developer just doesn't want or hasn't approached in the correct manner, or wants to do it in a way Sony doesn't allow. They could immediately dispel this by just releasing Sony saying "no" when they agreed to comply with any requirements, and I'd gladly eat my hat on this.

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Trolling and numerous accumulated infractions for similar behavior
I've been watching this game for at least a year, it is the reason why i made an account here on Era, but most importantly, it is the reason why i recovered my faith in Xbox ( before E3 2018). And its kinda sad seeing this getting all the hate from Sony's community, i saw people calling it all kind of things in CD3 threads, and i've seen some Spidey boys laughing at his games graphics (i mean, seriously?) and thats not all. While this game is not some kind of Jesus for all of us in this thread (i gotta admit), This game is a demon for Microsoft's haters, people fear this game like... like Batman, it's going to be legendary(it even appears in Xbox news all around the world, known as "The most fun game" in 2 of the most famous videogame forums in spanish) and i can understand the pressure this game has on it's shoulders.

I was so hyped when I originally saw the Gamescom reveal of Crackdown in 2015. Having played the tech demo, I still had fun with the game and plan on playing it through GamePass, but after watching this it's clear that this is a huuuge step from what we were originally shown. I don't know if it was too ambitious, or wasn't practical for gameplay. But whatever the reason, I wish the game was more like the 2015 version. Shooting Styrofoam just doesn't feel the same.

I'm specifically pointing out the fact that some people are offended by things the BLM activists do. And that it's not the job of the BLM activists to apologize to anyone whose feelings they hurt when they attack the institutions that perpetuate the subjugation of their people. AIPAC is a racist, Islamophobic, war-mongering organization that exerts enormous influence on American politics. We should refuse to pile on Ilhan Omar for fumbling around her criticism of AIPAC when 90%+ of Congress members from both parties support such a racist organization in the first place.

EtcetEraThread Ellen Page calls out Chris Pratt's "infamously anti-LGBTQ" church
Reason User Banned (3 days): inflammatory generalisations
Hillsong is trash. The Christian sexual ethic has been remarkably consistent over two thousand years of church history across all major denominations, that being that sexual activity was created for marriage between a man and a woman and should only be exercised within such a marriage. Obviously that's not, uh, popular in the current social climate. My expectation, based on how the culture has shifted in the last five years and where it's headed, anyone who holds to the Christian sexual ethic is probably going to be barred from any sort of public position or even celebrity within the next twenty years. That's why you see a lot of theologically liberal churches looking for anything whatsoever they can hold on to in order to change the plain meaning of the NT scriptural text and two thousand years of understanding of what that text means. In fact, probably even saying that one holds to the Christian sexual ethic might be enough to get banned from this forum.

Reason User Warned: System Wars
Sony is adopting a very Nintendo approach where they want to insure a level of polish and quality behind their published software. I can totally respect that. We are moving into an era where games like Lair, Playstation All Stars, and the ilk aren't going to be wasted on. Microsoft showing off a shit ton of games on their stage isn't going to be some sort of miraculous PR move that will sway the macro optics of what is actually happening. The mainstream consumer just got off a year with God of War, Spiderman, and Detroit. Xbox has yet to deliver any thing close to even one of those games this gen. You are over estimating the importance of E3 and Sony not showing up. In the grand scheme of things, Sony has quality games that are going to release among the next few years. Hell this year alone we still have Days Gone, Dreams, and Concrete Genie. There is no both sides here. One company is delivering on quality AAA Class leading games. The other is developing a cult around an executive, studio purchases, and blind faith that a good game will eventually hit.

I'm sorry guys but there is some serious double standard on this forum sometimes.

If you see it as "dodging" the question, so be it. And no, I have not seen any Giant Bomb videos on the game.

Reason User warned: system warring, hostility
MH would never come to a console? Did you forget about Tri on Wii/Wii U and Portable 3rd on PS3? Back then, it was selling the best on handhelds. Of course people would assume that Capcom would continue developing MH for handhelds. People at least expected a multi-platform handheld/console game. The fact that MHW dumped the entire handheld audience was a daring move. It would be like World 2 being Switch exclusive -- can you imagine the outrage? You're applying a modern perspective on the past, and it distorts part of the truth. Vita also died pretty quickly, so it was not a viable platform for MH. Hindsight is 20/20, so you can't use the present to invalidate the past. There were definitely a lot of fanboyism and butthurt, but the general view that it'll stay on handhelds (and Nintendo ones for a while) was a reasonable stance at the time. I think it's time people get past this. World players need to accept their fault in this whole petty mess as well. I wouldn't even bother bringing this up if the idiots would stop console warring every damn time MH Switch is being discussed.

Maybe because Microsoft is also in "BeTa PrOgRaM" and will unveil their plans at GDC? Plans only, mind you. Things that they will do and have invested in, and things that are ready but not ready. I want Microsoft to take charge and say "CROSS-PLAY READY" on all titles. All. Maybe we can see a difference then? Why is this list so small? Is Sony to blame? Just curious... Funny enough, the only devs "raising their concern" are the ones who literally just got confirmation of Switch/Xbox crossplay. Hmm... Why are the next list of cross-play titles between any dev is coming out in April 2019? Maybe because GDC takes place in March? Food for thought.

I didn’t intentionally disregard anything and the main thing I was pointing out was that Paragus and Broly’s relationship turned out the way it did out of necessity, so it has more nuance than it was initially described. I don’t need to prove anything to anyone. I posted my opinion in this thread and left. Y’all responded. If you don’t like my answer that’s cool, but if you think I feel embarrassed because you went out of your way to tell me how embarrassing you think this is, I don’t know what to tell you. I’m pretty sure I don’t give a shit, so you can either refute my post or ignore me. Y’all the ones acting hostile towards me lol

I know people aren't like this, but I don't see this as "whitewashing" because the characters are anthropomorphic squids and don't represent races nor cultures that could be implied to have race. To me is just looks like faded the colors. They're ugly, but I think people are overreacting.

Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Rationalizing racism, inflammatory false equivalencies, and antagonizing other members
Yeah? Pardon me for not raising a big fuss over the colours of local TOYS. Would you also make a fuss if African countries made skin tones darker for local toys? For example, if they used a completely black shade for people who only have light-brown skin? Because this is essentially what you are all doing. In Japan, anime characters tend to look more Western-ish (including eye or hair color) but in reality they prefer their own Asian looks. Conversely, there are many gay comics in Japan, but the actual society is still quite intolerant towards homosexuals. Japan is also hentai-land but the Japanese themselves are extremely prudish. In other words, fictional representations in Japan has nothing to do with their attitudes in reality. A whiter local toy isn't necessarily indicative of racism, nor is a darker shade necessarily indicative of more acceptance. Chances are the matter of race was just not on the radars of the plushie makers. Sure there are some plushies in darker tones. Those are either cats or bears and have nothing to do with racial representation. Most of the other plushies have light tones because that's just what they enjoy.

GamingThread Sony patents a new system of backward compatibility
Reason User Warned: Accusing other members of astroturfing
People have different perspectives. I'd rather have full BC than a small percentage of games. I also think that PS1 games don't really need a resolution bump, for example.Between these types of posts and the constant astroturfing of Game Pass, the gaming side has become frustrating to read in quite a few threads.Most people that don't care about BC aren't going to passionately post on a gaming forum about it. Like most other things, when people aren't passionate about something, they don't really talk about it. I consider Microsoft's BC initiative nice, but not worth the amount of praise it gets. It doesn't have wide-range support. I'm mostly interested in how they leverage their technology for full BC next gen.

This imo is akin to getting a pikachu toy that’s the wrong tone of yellow. Come on, it’s not as deep as it’s being made out to be. Especially considering the official art from Nintendo for splatfests is consistently in line with her character design. Tbh I have no sword in this battle, just don’t like the assumption it was done with the intent to white wash her when that doesn’t even make sense (white Marina looks like shit).

Admittedly I haven't watched the video yet, as I already have a decent enough grasp on what white privilege and beg-packing are, and my internet is garbage-tier mobile hotspot so I probably won't watch it until I go back to work. But are you basically saying that the video is essentially just using beg-packing an an example of white privilege's existence? If so, that's pretty obvious. And for those in denial about white privilege being a thing, I doubt a racially charged clickbait title is gonna get those kinds of folk to listen... it'll almost certainly just get 'em to double down on their ignorance.

This post is 100% correct.

But please, at least tell me that the conviction was based on concrete evidence of the girl encouraging the guy to go forward with suicide time and time and time and time again and not just 4-5 lines from a single conversation. Text messages can be widely interpreted and misinterpreted and it would be even more of a tragedy if the girl just thought she was engaging in some morbid, dark humor banter that turned out to not be the case.
