GamingThread Atlus West invites known racist and sexual abuser RelaxAlax to Persona 5 Royal preview event
Reason User Banned (duration pending): Rationalizing sexualized imagery of a minor
Ann’s arc is her owning her sexuality and deciding to use it to do what she wants. While I agree that the way the game sexualizes her for gags can often be dissonant with that, there is no single point where Persona 5 has ever condoned sexual assault or abuse. Get a grip.

GamingThread Atlus West invites known racist and sexual abuser RelaxAlax to Persona 5 Royal preview event
Reason User Banned (1 Month): Dismissing concerns around bigotry and sexual assault
I don't get the point of this thread. By inviting him Atlus neither supports his actions nor his opinions. They saw someone making videos on one of their franchises with half a million subscribers and flew them in. Even if they did a background check, I don't see how his past personal life has anything to do with playtesting video games.

Reason User Banned (duration pending): Rationalizing sexualized imagery of a minor
Okay, but that's just them not being overtly progressive. Sexualizing women isn't necessarily a bad thing, because sex remains a large part of the human experience. Also, from what I remember, her arc was more something like "I can still be myself without expecting other people to treat me like dirt", wasn't it? Been a while since I played it.

Gaming HangoutsThread Limited Run Games |OT| Sweet XOXO for Digital to Physical Media
Reason User Banned (3 Days) - Advocating Piracy
I disagree that Snatcher should get another print, anybody that wants to play the game can do so with ridiculous ease. There is no guilt in playing a pirated game that costs a months rent, with none of the money going to the dev. Konami doesn't give a flip about making a few thousand dollars selling a couple copies. If they really wanted money they'd release the game digitally, which I wouldn't mind. Releasing a new physical copy today would only be for the purpose of disrupting the collector market. Also nevermind collectors, as I've been repeatedly telling people over the years that don't want to pirate it. It doesn't cost much to buy the game off eBay, play through it, then relist the game on eBay. All it'd cost to play the game like this is the eBay sales fees. Or even, it's free to play if you can manage to sell the game on Craigslist. Nuking the value would hurt a fair number of non-collectors who simply wanted to play the game.

GamingThread PlayStation cancels planned PAX East appearence due to increasing concerns related to Coronavirus [SEE STAFF POST]
Red Text The intent of the staff post was simply to say "stop the personal attacks" which is something that a lot of posters have clearly failed to do. We do not support xenophobia or conspiracy theories. We do not support anti-vaxxer nonsense. Not now, not ever. To say otherwise is insulting and disingenuous.

Reason User Banned (3 Days): Hostility across multiple posts
Ohhh boy, we got a Question Asker here. Someone who's "just asking a question, that's all". Nothing more than that! No agenda. Just asking a simple question -- "what facts do you have, good sir? May I see them? I believe it's in all our best interest to focus on this specific wording at the expense of the overall message, so that we may all Get The Facts!" In case I'm embarrassingly mistaken, and you genuinely seeking understanding, the being ignored are that Sony has given their reasoning already, and reacting to it spitefully is motivated by something more sinister than simply "oh, they're mistaken, Boston actually a hotbed of coronavirus activity!"

I knew you were going to mention Sonic Mania, but you were forgetting Christian Whitehead did ports of existing games to get in good with SEGA. How about I create a new YouTube channel, call it "Glazehedgehog", take all your work, redub it in a cheap fashion, claim it as my own work then see how fast you got the copyright button. I bet the line would be drawn then.

GamingThread Rockstar removes 'Games for Windows Live' and multiplayer services from GTA IV
Reason User Warned: Lazy dev rhetoric
Cutting multiplayer... It sounds like a shortcut to both getting rid of GFWL as well as maintaining focus of players on GTA/RD2 Online. It's not cool. GTA IV multiplayer hooked me a lot more than GTA Online so this is really disappointing. Rockstar cut a piece of their game off like it meant nothing. I would've liked to have returned to it with some friends.

Cause a vocal minority are jealous that it's the most successfully Monolithsoft game in their history and could be the template used for all future blockbusters they produce. Anger is often driven by fear. It's okay though, people can express differing opinions and make a lot of noise, but it won't have any impact on anything.

Well, all this is like deja vu. Whenever we are about to enter a next gen, the narrative of the disinformation media comes out that the Xbox is much more powerful and that Sony is doomed. I don't say that xbox is not going to be more powerful, in fact if it has 2 sku it makes sense that it's. What I don't believe is that the difference is significant. But it seems to me that "arrogance" always comes from North America ...

GamingThread I Don't Think I Quite Understand Sonic the Hedgehog Anymore...
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Admission of piracy
I remember just loving Sonic the Hedgehog as a kid. I got Sonic Colors on the DS for Christmas one year, not long after I found and rocked Sonic Rush and Sonic Rush Adventurers, and I remembered that after that I just wanted to play every single last Sonic game to exist and do that, I did. After that, I kinda just left the series when nothing much else came out for a long while. Well, I went to see the movie with my baby siblings, diehard Sonic fans the lot of'em, which was a surprisingly and immensely pleasant experience. I suddenly became nostalgic for the Blue Blur's games, jumped on my jailbroken 3DS and tried Sonic Advance, Sonic Rush, the Genesis Trilogy, everything I could... and suddenly I realized I just wasn't having fun with any of them anymore. I understand the game's are meant to be open-ended, encouraging the player to make the decision between going fast or exploring, but it seems like these inherently incompatible concepts make it impossible to have fun going fast in a Sonic game. The levels are unintuitive and only encourage trial and error because if you try to go fast it'll just be a staccato repetition of picking up speed, going fast and running into an obstacle you never could see coming. Frankly put, the levels weren't interesting enough despite being open-ended to make me want to explore, and the levels were so messy going fast was impossible. Is there something I'm missing that I had as a child that'll let me enjoy Sonic the Hedgehog games again? I'm nostalgic as Hell and I'd hate to revisit this series I love and find that I hate it now.
