GamingThread The kernel driver for Call of Duty's new Anti-cheat called RICOCHET has been leaked. P2C devs are already reverse engineering it
Reason User Banned (3 Weeks): Platform warring over multiple posts, received long for similar behavior previously
Nah, no one gets to decide that except hardware owners and manufacturers, who actually invest money into the products that they own, make the decision on who they SHOULD play with and against using that hardware. Console owners (who have spent money and bought consoles as their primary choice of getting third party games for an entire generation, and not just as just an exclusive device which they like or a multiplayer game device for people who don't have players on their preferred platform, eg: CoD's, FIFA's, Fighting Games and numerous other games in various genre) ARE the ONLY people who SHOULD speak on which other platforms their consoles SHOULD crossplay with, and it's a resounding YES from the entire console-only community for CONSOLE-ONLY-CROSSPLAY. This cheating issue seems to be incredibly high in certain games on PC, and Warzone is one of them, it's not even that much of a problem if the dev is active enough and their anti-cheat is strong, despite this leak and the code being reverse engineered. Same situation with Battlefield with the recent leak. Both these publishers will be fine, just like Valve are with CSGO. The people on console who use cheats as a way of arguing to avoid PC crossplay are miniscule, even if there might be some on this thread. The vast majority just wants to crossplay only between their own platform, consoles, irrespective of their makers, and it's their (as well as the console manufacturer's prerogative and their right to avoid any other platform as well) absolute right. It's really funny to tell them that they "SHOULDN'T" crossplay between their own consoles if PC doesn't get it. SONY and NTDO currently have a first party rule that every dev should offer the consumer an option to turn crossplay off. Going forward, SONY, MSFT and NTDO should (and most probably WILL very soon due to the community feedback that they're getting) go ahead and make a first party rule that PC should be avoided in ALL games that have ANY form of multiplayer, and most importantly (last, current and future gen console hardware), should crossplay between all the console variants wherever possible. This egregious practice of 3RD party devs exploiting the console playerbase due it's size and sales, and the player injection to PC via "default on full crossplay" and no option to play only with other consoles only via crossplay, is going to be over very soon. Console-only-crossplay is the inevitable future, and there are titles which have started this already.

GamingThread WindowsCentral : Details on Xbox exclusive Avowed: The Outer Worlds meets medieval fantasy
Reason User Banned (5 days): Console wars, history of infractions for similar
Concern trolling? I’m just going off of how early everything in that presentation looked and the uniquely glacial development pace almost every single “TRIPLE-A” first party Xbox game seems to have undergone in its modern era. I’d love to be proven wrong here, but even before the challenges of the pandemic we had stuff like the Halo Master Chief Collection taking years to fix, Scalebound’s cancellation and Crackdown 3’s troubled development. So many issues from so many wildly different studios.

GamingThread PlayStation Studios |OT23| Marvel at the Creative Bankruptcy
Reason User Warned: Platform Warring
I wish Nintendo got even half as much shit as Sony does for their pricing. Returnal being $70 at launch was a huge controversy, even though it's regularly been on sale for $50 in the few months since launch, and will probably be on sales for ~$30-$40 or so within a year. Meanwhile, Nintendo can put out a 10 hour 2D game or port of a 5+ year old game and charge $60, never discounting below $50 even years after release, and barely anyone seems to mind? So many Switch games I'd like to try but will never play because of the price. I'm absolutely getting Dread sometime in the next few months (hopefully as a Christmas gift), but the fact that I can't just wait and get it for $40 in a few months like I can with games from literally every other publisher is annoying as fuck.

GamingThread Jonathan Blow threatens to boycott conferences that "disinvite speaker[s] due to "cancel culture"-style pressure" [UPDATE: He's a COVID truther too]
Reason User Banned (1 Month) Dismissing Legitimate Concern as “Politics”, account in junior phase
That's why i don't like politics mixed with creative works, even though it is something that in a lot of cases seems inevitable. Blow clearly has a different approach to controversial things that don't fit my narrative, but he created Braid, which i enjoyed, and The Witness, which totally blew my mind off. So i'd like for him to keep dropping games like these two. I don't care about his views in politics, gender, etc. I just want to play good games, and he delivers. But, in this situation, he can do whathever he wants, if he doesn't want to go to events/conferences, that's his call, and we have no saying in the matter. But i have to give him that coercing authors in this called "cancel movements" is not the best approach.

Nate does not say that he has heard from developers that Nintendo isn't pursuing backwards compatibility, merely that dataminers have brought up the legitimate challenges that native BC faces due to hardware differences for the 4K/Succ. MVG then provides options for what Nintendo might pursue to rectify this such as patches. The OP has been updated to clarify this.

GamingThread Koichi Sugiyama, composer of Dragon Quest, has passed away (SEE STAFF POST)
Reason User Threadbanned - Continued Thread Derailment
It's okay, I respectfully disagree. You can be a sociopath and not feel explicit suffering but it isn't gonna be a fulfilling life imo... All modern studies I know of show that once you make enough to not struggle in America about 70k, it is a lot easier to be happy. That does not mean someone who is making 70k and has super good moral principles, a loving wife, does charity, goes to the beach, etc.....isn't probably a lot happier then someone like our recent president who idk if I'm allowed to bring up (?), who spent his days eating poorly, tweeting private citizens hatefully, no exercise, concerned about every word spoken of him, frustrated, grumpy, etc... I don't personally find it right within my own belief system to celebrate the death of people even if I do think certain things should be remembered, but I don't mind that some people do. Even if certain problematic actors on a global scale came to their passing I'd think "R.I.P. thank god the world can move on now".... Just think it'd be nice if people weren't getting upset about others simply saying R.I.P and tryna just say hey, everyones got different beliefs, if they aren't fighting the battle at this time it isn't a personal attack.... In my eyes if someone is laughing at the suffering of LGBT they likely are frustrated by the success and growth as well. I admitted that I dont believe in the reincarnation aspect of Bhuddism that they use to make karma equal, but karma is still karma. He negatively impacted more lives then he could suffer as one man, but now he is dead, his conscious, ego, and all are gone. No one can really punish him anymore, I think he punished himself and others in his life, but now he is resting. Super not here to tell people what is right and wrong and accept that is personal, just tryna communicate why not everyone who is saying R.I.P. is some apologist, don't think it is appropriate to police the tone of those comments either. That's all. The original post I was responding to was about a guy saying he hopes everyone saying R.I.P. means Rest in Piss and I think it's like cmon, let people say Rest in Peace without taking it personally you know? Gonna be my last comment in this thread 100% but yeah, R.I.P. isn't apologists, it's okay that's all I wanted to say. Some people just have different beliefs. Pretty sure everyone is on the same side here as far as the asterisk stating he was a terrible human that will forever be next to his works.

This Jonathan Blow guy has been putting his bigoted views into his games for ages. Take this puzzle solution in the Witness: It's basically advocating racial segregation. Separating blacks and whites. It even becomes one of the 'core rules' in progressing through the puzzles in the game. Ingraining historical and systemic abuse against a certain people into some sort of abstract puzzle to be solved. Devious shocking and typical of Blow.

And if those people want to donate to someone who provides them a free service, so what? Let them spend their money their own way. Sure, he sometimes thanks contributors and bestows them special statuses, but he doesn't force anyone to contribute. /s edit: I’m wrong.

I re-read the above sections and noticed something that wasn’t addressed in the OP. There is a lack of primary, humanoid darker-skinned characters in Smash. Why is this the case? The is evidence for Japanese-centrism. Academic papers support the connection of Japanese paleness as a Japanese cultural bias, so in the absence of darker-skinned Japanese characters, it cannot be said that paleness is unrelated to Japanese-centrism. I support diversity in all situations, but I don’t support imposing Western values on other cultures. I really don’t know what to do about this issue. Does anyone know how to reconcile these two seemingly opposing concepts?

Nah. Middle Eastern players do what they can to play games, and historically that includes a lot of bootlegs, romhacks and piracy. Is it just as bad as the evil Metroid Dread pirates or not? Do we need to go deeper in how and when it is justified? Maybe based on your revenue or something? My question is: when is piracy morally acceptable?
