Don’t think every Angry Joe vid needs a thread and prob wouldn’t care if he got banned but really dislike that kind of thing. I mean naughty dog themselves have been accused of many heinous things (crunch culture, attacking journalists as mentioned in the Jim Sterling vids) but it ok to praise the results of that effort?

GamingThread Angry Joe really went full misogyny with The Last of Us Part II huh?
Reason User banned (1 Month) - Dismissing concerns
I have to say I don’t understand the culture here where if a content creator is viewed as racist, sexist, bigot or whatever, that everyone calls for them to be banned, and then they most likely are. Don’t you think these people need to be talked about MORE than those with whom we share opinions? Is it not more important to see that these sorts of people exist and discuss how and why they got here, he’ll even call them out on their behaviour, rather than just sweeping them under the rug and pretending they don’t exist? That doesn’t help anything. I think it’s important to have discourse about and with people who have these sorts of views rather than just dismissing them

GamingThread Buff women in video games
Reason User Banned (permanent): Misogyny. Double down. Account in junior phase.
i didn't miss those, but it seemed food was rationed heavily. 1 Burito a day isn't enough, also yeah i saw the gym but even with proper modern diet and workout she would need more than 3 years to go from flashback to her current muscle mass and very probably steroids too. My head cannon is that she is indeed on roids, but that really isn't a fact since the game never tell you. Also why is no one attacking zarya or other examples in this thread, i feel like it's unfair to just attack people for hating women with muscles just because someone said that abby is kinda unrealistic in the context of the game. also the problem is not that she has defined muscles actually it's her muscles mass, she actually isn't that definedi dont think i have seen any character stronger than abby other than those big mini bosses but they come in both genders anyways

I like his reviews. In fact, I look forward to them after a big release. The pre-skits with Other Joe and company. His real-time reactions. How pissed he gets when he dislikes something like microtransactions, EA reskins, short 4 hour campaigns on $60 games, etc...Hilarious. *shrug* Everyone loved him in the other forum when he was making “You fucking idiots!” videos about Microsoft and EA no matter how inappropriate he got. This HAD to be the game that drew the line huh? Even though I enjoyed many portions of the game, I too left extremely disappointed and agree with many of Joe’s points. So many plot holes, so many undeveloped characters, unnecessary shock moments. Are people really going to dismiss his entire 48 minutes of, in my opinion, entertaining content because of a couple dumb comments about Abby?

EVO always treated the Mortal Kombat scene like absolute trash. The absolute worst was when they gave Injustice 2 Top 16 time slot to stream Tekken 7 Arcade (a game no one outside Japan/Korea had experience in) pool play instead. Especially after the previous year it gave one of the best storyline matches in the MKX grand finals. EVO never was about celebrating fighting games but instead pandering to the various games made in Japan. Nothing of value is lost if it dies.

GamingThread Let's talk about the level of discourse on Gaming Side. AKA ban 3 word posts.
Reason User banned (duration pending): long and relentless history of modwhining and hostility towards staff
For real, especially this one for me I was upset about a video game in a thread that got locked. People in another thread started talking about the locked thread, so I responded with how I felt. Got banned 2 weeks for "Trolling in multiple threads, a long history of trolling". And its like fucking When the post I got banned over was literally me complaining about how "People keep calling me a concern troll because I have criticisms, which is bullshit." I'm also not sure what a "Long history" is when I've never received a warning once before? And what counts as "trolling", is posting a tongue in cheek funny hee hee haw haw even in the same spirit as purposefully being mean and disingenuous? Good moderation absolutely goes beyond policing obviously shitty posts - If they want good discourse it starts with them and how they guide and inform discussion before it gets to a point of what is perceived as ban-worthy.

GamingThread Speaking of trans issues let's talk about racism and the general disregard of brands when we call them out for it.
Reason User Banned (3 Months): Concern Trolling Over Multiple Posts in a Sensitive Thread; Prior Severe Ban
This isn't the case though, in fact we literally know the misinformation is one of the single largest problems with the internet. Plenty of resources seem fine and others will come along and point out the problems. It's hard to find not just a good resource but one that works for you (I for example am not a book person, and barely a Youtube person). In fact, when there are lots resources the biggest problem is choice paralysis, you literally get overwhelmed and don't know where to start. Asking for help is not always an option in some cases, especially when deliberate ignorance is a common way to troll others. People get sick of it, they become suspicious, positive intent is not assumed anymore. And particularly for minorities they wind up becoming the go-to and it can feel like a burden to be that person. Bad faith being the rule is the whole problem. Nobody wants to deal with ignorance, nobody can tell if it's even legitimate. But learning is not passive. You cannot read a book and understand what bigotry and other things are and what they might mean. You need to be able to present ideas and be challenged on them, for better or worse that's exactly how message board communication works. It's not a one-way blog for people to throw their thoughts into the world, it's an anonymous debate. It's not always intuitive to think of it in those terms, but that's what we're working with. Acceptability isn't results, it's just saying you hate dealing with it. It would be nice if certain things didn't need saying, but they do. There's a lot of hand-holding that needs to happen whether anyone likes it or not. Now, it's not anyone's responsibility and it's entirely fair to be fed up with it and wish they'd all go away, but it's the sort of social hygiene that needs to be done and to be honest, for the important things I wouldn't trust a surrogate to get it right either.

GamingThread Engadget - 'GTA V' brings transphobia to the next console generation
Reason User Banned (1 month): Advocating for portrayals of transphobic abuse in-game
I mean, the game is portraying bad people. Grand Theft Auto has always been that. Rockstar has shown with Red Dead they create likable, morally ambiguous characters so it's not like this is some oversight. I just don't think murderers and thieves are going to draw the line at being transphobic. It would be a bit more jarring if Michael, a boomer-type horrible man, was just like "Oh sorry, I didn't mean to misgender you." That's not him. You're supposed to go "Jesus, this guy's an asshole." I do think the actual trans NPCs could be represented in the world a bit better but at the same time, this is a world where EVERYONE is portrayed poorly. Cops, citizens, etc etc. They're not really singling any one out.

GamingThread Do you think China by 2030 will begin to produce major AAA developers?
Reason User Banned (2 months): Xenophobic generalizations
I have a theory. China is a nation of 1.4 billion people. They are smart, educated and prosperous. Now, name a world-class innovation that has come out of China in the past 20 years. Name a book. Name a movie. Name a song. Any piece of art or science or technology that's original and world-shaking. Most likely, you can't. Now look at South Korea. Population = 50 miilion. Almost 1/30th of China. This tiny country has produced Gangam Style, Kpop, the Oscar-winning movie Parasite, and world-beating companies like Samsung, LG and Hyundai. It's a well of creativity and critical thinking. So what's happening here? To find out, let's look at the people who emigrated out of China, and who had kids outside China. These kids grew up in America or Britain or Japan or other countries. And you'll find these Chinese-origin kids have produced some stunning works, whether it comes to books or paintings or technology or music. So clearly the chinese-origin people are as capable of producing original and thought-provoking works as any other people. And they are. Just not in China. My theory is that when you kill free speech, and fill the minds of a people with propaganda that curtails their freedom to think and question and doubt and protest, then you are choking a civilization. You are depriving the civilization of the oxygen it needs to grow and flourish and change. And that's what the CCP is doing in China. All the nations I talked about above, US or Britain or Japan or Korea, they are all liberal democracies that allow their citizens the freedom to think and express whatever they wish to. Look at how the people lampoon and ridicule Donald Trump. Imagine doing that to Xi Jinping in China. And this brings me to a sad and personal point. I'm Indian. The fascist government in power in India right now is doing exactly the above to Indian citizens. Curbing and punishing dissent and free speech, and filling the minds of the people with propaganda. We have begun to choke as a people. Despite the outside appearances of strength, I fear that a deep rot runs through China, and its civilization stagnates. And that rot has now caught hold of India. So, to answer the question, I doubt that China will be producing any notable video games by 2030. Publishing them? Maybe. But probably not creating them. And India is on the same path, just a little behind China. Whether we break away from this black hole of stagnation depends on how deeply our people cherish their free speech, and what they are prepared to do to protect it. Whether China does depends on the Chinese people. I'm an optimist, so I believe it's possible. But I have to be pragmatic about my optimism.
