GamingThread [Jason Schreier] Inside Cyberpunk 2077's Disastrous Rollout
Reason User Banned (3 Days) - Antagonizing other members
There's nothing in it. nothing is new everything that's in it is already a known quantity in regards to the shit launch of cyberpunk. It seems like all he did was write this article so that he could get in on the negative press against the leadership of CDPR.

GamingThread Brad Sams: MS, Amazon, and Google are looking to make acquistions. EA and Sony (not as much as Google and Amazon) also looking
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Platform Warring
nice hope MS gets the lionshare. people are gonna cry that companies are getting bought left and right but it's not like it's gonna stop. so may as well accept it and hope the best option wins out; the one that puts their games on PC, consoles, mobile peeps are caught up way too much on this stuff. build a PC or buy the right console next time. sorry you spent $400 on the wrong box, I guess? you'll live long enough to fix the mistake

GamingThread Can the biggest first party and biggest third party game on Switch outsell all of PS4 and PS5 hardware respectively in Japan?
Reason User Warned: Low Effort Thread, Platform Warring
See Animal Crossing v PS4 (hardware), and Monster Hunter v PS5 (hardware) so far in 2020 below. Do you think the biggest first party game will outsell PS4, and the biggest third party game will outsell PS5 in Japan? (physical software only) For reference, the highest selling Monster Hunter games in Japan have been Monster Hunter Freedom 3 (PSP) at 4,840,930 and Monster Hunter 4 (3DS) at 3,591,334. Animal Crossing is already the best selling Animal Crossing game by over a million units. The best selling game ever in Japan is Pokemon Red/Green/Blue (GB) at 7,936,360. If you believe Monster Hunter won't be the highest selling Switch third party game, than that's fine, you can replace it with whatever you think may be. For reference, the best selling Dragon Quest game is Dragon Quest IX (NDS) at 4,402,263. You can change your vote in the next 21 days if you wish!

GamingThread Nintendo is the only gaming company out of the big three without an icon???
Reason User Warned: Platform Warring
Nintendo is the shittiest video game company i have ever seen. They dont do what other companies do and they dont understand how the real world works. They will ban you tube videos if it has nintendo content in it. Their games are mostly 10yr old stuff very few comes out as mature. They ban tournaments which features their own game. I dont understand why people support such anti consumer company. Their joysticks are joke. I almost forgot about them.

You’re an asshole. I can be worthless on the internet too!That does look to be in shockingly poor taste now I realise English isn’t their native language I agree. It was a take on (for example:) ‘I’m all about honesty!’ ‘Honesty? You couldn’t even spell the word!’ Thought suitable because they were failing to acknowledge personal criticism as criticism whilst being personally critical themselves (all whilst mis-spelling the word, thus bringing that old phrase to mind) Shit post maybe but that’s where my head was at for what it’s worth.

GamingThread Wood Hawker (BeatEmUps) Review of CyberPunk 2077 rips into CDPR lies
Reason User Banned (2 weeks): Misrepresenting moderation policy and downplaying concerns about transphobia
can't even say anything the guy says is wrong but after 120 hours playing the game it's still my goty and i would rate it a 9/10 as of right now. the score is definitely going to go up once the bugs are fixed and expansions come out. from my three friends who bought the game on steam not a single one thinks the game is bad or wants a refund. even in it's buggy state, steam reviews are mostly positive after almost 300k user reviewes so the game must be doing something right. it's true that marketing kinda lied about this game. it was a mistake to try to sell this as a cyberpunk gta when in reality the game is cdpr's take on a ubisoft open world style game and they should have communicated it like that from the start. that said you also have to blame yourself a little if you expected cdpr to combine the best of gta, deus ex, far cry and witcher all on a massive scale and on their first try. i myself also overhyped the game little but once i accepted the game for what it is and not for what marketing told me or what my own unrealistic expecations were i could feel how much love and effort was poured into this game. it's probably the best ubisoft open world game ever made. why? because first of all night city is one if not the best location i've ever seen in a video game. after 120 hours my jaw still drops on the floor everytime i ride through downtown on my akira bike with the radio on. no ubisoft game ever made me give a shit about any characters i interact with while here i love panam, judy, jackie, johnny and all the other ones. once the game was over i felt sad and empty because i wanted to spend more time with these characters, a feeling i usually only get from a good book that i enjoyed or some of the best rpgs like persona. the main story is fantastic. lots of side stories are fantastic and memorable. i love the gangs, i love the car designs and it's insane how much detail they put into the design of night city. as someone who was dreaming of walking around in a open world cyberpunk city ever since i read neuromancer when i was 14 years old it is literally a dream come true. the gunplay feels really good once you level up. when the game clicks and plays like a open world deus ex human revolution on a massive scale with a more satisfying story and characters you actually care about there is nothing else like it and you don't give shit if there is great police AI or not. you don't care that there aren't any yakuza like mini games (though i suspect we might still get a gwent equivalent in one of the expansions). so yeah i love this game and it weirds me out that this site seemingly tries so hard to ruin the fun for everyone who feels the same by only allowing threads shitting on the game to be made but personally there is no way and zero chance i will let that damper my love for this game. can't wait to see what they have in store in the expansions.

GamingThread Let's discuss the common complaint about 13 Sentinels (examples within)
Reason User banned (5 days): Whataboutism around objectification
Personally, I take much more offense with the "fanservice" points (and even then, the ridiculous sexualization in point 2 over a girl wearing bloomers) than with 1, which going by the picture is extremely tame. The conversation overall irks me, because I sympathize with the sentiment, but I can't help finding the framing of it (read: the hyperbole and disingenuous arguments surroinding it) incredibly prudish. A bit hypocritical too, since whenever hyperviolence and gun culture are brought up when it comes to games, it gets shrugged off. Whataboutism, I know, but the perceived gravity of these issues skews so hard toward American values specifically that it bothers me.

This game barely has any fan service at all. We are talking about a handful of scenes in a 30 to 40 hour game, you don't even really notice it while playing. Also, why is it not okay in this game, but games like Persona 5 get a pass, even though they're much 'worse' in that regard?

The fact that some of you are so up in arms about this is wild. It’s barely offensive. Hyper sexualization occurs in all media: Japanese or otherwise. Some of these posts make it sound like the game contains child pornography. Furthermore, it’s for art to make you uncomfortable.
