GamingThread Why Pokemon DP remakes looks and feels worse than RS remakes that came out 7 years ago?
Reason User Warned - Lazy Dev Rhetoric
I voted yes because it is disappointing to be paying 79.99 CAD for a game that looks like that. I don't think it looks awful, but boy does it look lazy. The whole "faithful" remake means nothing if it has an automatic experience share as well.

I’ve never looked at this forum the same since I brought it up and I the response I got was “here we go again with the people that got blown up.” I legit hate all of you and your idolization of your garbage presidents and this garbage country full of garbage people.

GamingThread Mario and Sonic Beijing 2022; Supposedly in development, may or may not be canceled due to pandemic
Reason User Banned (1 month): Hostility, repeated infractions for similar behaviour
Just for the record, I think this thread title should be changed, I think more than the pandemic, the big problem here is "China" themselves. I won't get super into it because it's obvious with all of this shit revolving around "Chinese New Year" right now, but there's no way Nintendo and SEGA would get out of this without a group threatening to boycott them. Rightfully or not. Ah, the literal usual suspects. Good thing I've gone to mods/admins with evidence for the Sonic stuff, the more ammo to laugh at you hostile, seething weirdos, the better, lmao. Hey, , where'd you run to, buddy?! You pinged me?

GamingThread Yuzu (Switch emulator) running Mario 3D World+Bowser's Fury at 60fps day 1
Reason User Banned (3 days): Equating emulation with piracy, thread derailing
It comes down to empathy, doesn’t it? In this thread you can absolutely prove that emulation is legal. In this thread you cannot prove that each and everybody on the site is legally emulating. The OT’s for most games around here, you take it as read the people enjoying the game along with you, legitimately obtained it. You cannot necessarily do that here, in this community, with Switch games. That’s a fact With the amount of acrobatics we all go through when talking about this topic, no matter your stance, it should start with people recognising some home truths. And how that could in turn make others feel. As I said, empathy. Don’t agree with someone? That’s your prerogative. At least consider what they are saying and why, first. Probably 50% of all Nintendo-related discussion needs to be taken with the grain of salt that we’re all emulating current hardware/software. It’s fine if that doesn’t sit well with someone, surely.

GamingThread Eurogamer: Activision warns a standard 500GB PS4 may no longer fit Call of Duty: Warzone, Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare
Reason User warned: Console war rhetoric
Yep. My initial statement was this won't be the case for games designed with the SSD in mind.Again, if the file you're modifying is inside a chunk that needs to remain contiguous, shifting things around is necessary. Maybe Xbox defers it later and does it during down time (like rest mode) and more efficiently (it's not always needed but maybe PS4 systematically does it while Xbox only does it when it's actually needed), but seek times are seek times.Yep. Won't be replying further. You don't have to come to my house, but if you can answer this you can convince me: let's say you have 5 GB of data, representing a city block in an open world game. It has to be contiguous at all times to be loaded wholesale into memory. Let's say at the 2GB mark begins a 40MB file that needs an update which will modify its size. You can find partial solutions (not modifying the initial file and finding free blocks after the 5GB chunk and appending it there, or if the file is smaller now you replace it and pad the remaining space with zeros), but no general solution. The simpler answer, which seems to be what Sony does on the PS4, is to rebuild the whole thing again. My point still stands, this is irrelevant on new gen hardware because of the SSDs. If you play in BC then no improvements in this regard, but games built on engines specifically for this gen will be different in patches.Not talking about asset duplication.Switch doesn't use a HDD so it's not relevant to the conversation. That's it. Last reply. I might be wrong. I feel like it's turned into a veiled console war and I don't care enough to respond any further.

GamingThread Yuzu (Switch emulator) running Mario 3D World+Bowser's Fury at 60fps day 1
Reason User Warned: Equating Emulation With Piracy
Isn't this thread basicly piracy advice for people? I heard this argument time & time again of peopel that have console X that they wont buy Nintendo stuff but pirate the shit out of them. Most people who used Cemu admitted that they didnt even have a Wii U. Im all in for emulation of old consoles but current consoles and games that arent even released yet? I dont get it. Play it on the system since its the current console. I also dont get why this forum is fine with it at all. You have all this industry people on here but youre fine with pirated current gen games running on current gen emulators. Nice double standard.

EtcetEraThread Some Redditors set their sights on silver after GameStop frenzy (Other Redditors have pushed back against that claim - all the details in the article)
Reason User banned (duration pending review): trolling
Guys, the origin for the story in the OP is literally a 92 post thread on the ResetERA Gaming forum. There's dozens of people in there talking about how Dark Souls 2 is actually the best Soulsborne game. Here's the thread: Here's another: Everyone needs to remember that ResetERA isn't a monolith and that there's a contingent of people on ERA who have a lot of praise for DS1/BB who need public perception to stay up to validate their opinion, so it's in their best interest to say this thread never existed even though it clearly does. It's not fake news, that it's fake is the lie.

GamingThread [Zelda Dungeon] Diversity in Zelda: The Need for a Black Princess Zelda
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending Review): Dismissing Concerns of Black Representation; Prior Ban for Concern Trolling About Racism
You don't have to force things or change existing things for the sake of it. This isn't diversity and it's not how it works. Fair representation. Respectful representation. New characters and lore built from the ground up – that's how it works. That's why Miles Morales is such an awesome character. They didn't just make Peter Parker black (or any other background for that matter). Also, while we're on this topic: Why not brown? Why not middle Eastern? Why not south East Asian? Not everything is just white or black, but often gets painted as such in the name of diversity. If anything, that's just as damaging. I'm so tired of this linear thinking.
