GamingThread Former 343 Employee Uploads Another Video Saying No Force Crunch
Red Text I cannot believe this needs to be said, but legitimate reporting is hard. It takes time, sometimes weeks, months, or even years to get the interviews and information needed to publish a story. It isn't a process that takes 20 minutes and a handful of phone calls. Journalists don't sit on huge stories until the right time, they put them out when they have the information. Especially at legitimate outlets with a reputation for trustworthiness.

Reason User banned (1 week): concern trolling
Jason sensationalizing isn't uncommon, no matter how in the right he may be and the same applies to others, especially YouTuber's. You should be reaching out to your sources or letting the person you're quoting clarify their wording. This is how people get blacklisted from future job opportunities when shit hits the fan.

GamingThread Former 343 Employee Uploads Another Video Saying No Force Crunch
Reason User Banned (1 week): conspiracy theories
A site holding a story until it's at maximum amount of potential traffic (during a hype cycle) is like their business and airing the dirty laundry when most eyes are looking isn't really a bad thing, it seemed to bring change at Rockstar (I'll wait until they are deep into GTA6 before clapping them on the back) and ND head has talked recently about trying to stop their talent bleed and crunch culture (again I'll wait until they are deep into their next big project). I know it's not true for most of the gaming press, who are basically just a tool for the hype parades, but there's no bad look in Bloomberg doing that, just some who'll be upset by it.

Reason User Banned (1 week): conspiracy theories
He's been "teasing" and subtle confirming he's been working on something since last year, ofcourse he's waiting for it to be more relevant. He's not stupid, a Halo article in February isn't worth much. But right before launch when supposedly positive excitement will be at its peak, will get way more eyeballs and for the less interested, possibly taint the release/feed console war fodder. I'm not saying that he specifically has a anti MS agenda or anything, but at the end of the day you gotta be realistic, and that kind of drama is what get big clicks.

This is the rumor. If it is true that he's sitting on the story in order to wait for excitement around Halo Infinite to be high before breaking the story, it's definitely a kinda gross thing to do. So I really hope not.

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending) - Continued history of antagonizing others
What? You're like the poster boy for MS news. I know more going on at MS from you than I do pretty much anywhere. Why is this concerning to you? It's not like we don't think its going to be profitable but in your very thread people were assuming GP was already racking in the big dollars and you even would agree. It seems like you're the one that has too many feelings invested in what kind of narrative is happening with MS

GamingThread Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is a PS5 exclusive for "at least sixth months"
Reason User Banned (1 Day) - Trolling
Honestly Sony can fuck right off at this point. So insecure that their market leader status could be even remotely threatened by their main competitor doing so many things better than they are that they resort to this underhanded shit. And it's completely unnecessary, the Playstation brand is so powerful and so firmly entrenched in gamers minds as the de facto choice that nothing will threaten its dominance. Why not spend the money you keep throwing in Square Enix's direction on things that improve your console? Hire a bunch of engineers to copy what Microsoft are doing with things like Quick Resume/Auto HDR/FPS Boost etc. Or hell, why not hire some people to get PS1/PS2/PS3 games working on your console? Pour that money into making PS Now a more attractive and comparable offering to what Game Pass is doing. Go buy (or invest in) a few gaming studio's if you have so little confidence in your own first party output that you feel the need to pay third parties to keep their games off of other platforms. Do things that make your platform better rather than making other platforms worse. I've owned every single Sony gaming device except for the Vita and count games like Shadow of the Colossus, The Last of Us and Journey as among the finest and most precious gaming experiences of my life. But I'll be skipping the PS5. I'm no longer interested in supporting a company that actively works against important gaming innovations like crossplay/progression and devotes more energy and resources than is reasonable to take away from the gaming industry rather than add to it.

GamingThread Overwatch's new Mei skin draws criticism for cultural appropiation
Reason User banned (permanent): dismissing concerns around cultural appropriation over multiple posts, prior severe ban for dismissing sexism in a sensitive thread
I honestly have a lot of difficulties to understand the criticisms to the lack of a black woman in Overwatch. I mean: if the game would have included only white females characters I would have perfectly understood it but the roaster presents female characters from a lot of different countries that are not tipically represented in videogames. Like Egypt, India, Mexico... I mean, this is not common at all and in general I think that the game has one of the wider ethnic cast of characters. Probably it's because I'm european and I can't understand what exactly is the problem with the lack of black women in the game. Probably it's an USA-only problem? I don't know...

Yeah, no. MS has been absolutely mediocre -I am being nice; It's been trash for the last ten years or so...- when it comes to managing its first party portfolio. This comment of yours makes no sense at all. People here have been doing some mental gymnastics since the Zenimax acquisitions, and I bet that were MS to somehow grab Square, we would find many of the outraged guys here explaining how great their reach would become thanks to the cloud, and how MS would offer them money and security... Nah, topics of timed, permanent exclusivity or acquisitions should be devoid of outrage, fury and fake concerns from now on...

GamingThread Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is a PS5 exclusive for "at least sixth months"
Reason User Thread Banned - Acquisition Begging
Sony should buy Square Enix already. They always had a tight relationship and its clear that their relationship is still as strong as ever with FF7R exclusivity, FFXVI exclusivity and Forspoken exclusivity. Sony could extend their already strong first party lineup with a strong japanese publisher/developer and its apparent that not releasing their games on xbox or PC does not hurt SE all that much. Bonus effect is that people will stop crying about timed exclusivity.

This thread reads like a response to that thread. That's what makes it seem weird. Seeing the OP in a lot of threads defending the Playstation it just seems like he's triggered whenever someone says something positive about Xbox. The PS5 is great no doubt but he didn't list anything about it other than the PS+ collection and PS4 BC. Oh, the DualSense is great and Activity cards. There's no real thought put into the OP.

Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Victim Blaming; Dismissing Concerns Around Workplace Abuse
Look, I get it... Having to “research” graphic images to make sure the gore in the game is authentic is pretty fucked up. But at the same time, you got a job at a studio that works on a game that’s been known for depicting acts of extreme violence for decades. If you took the job knowing that, you kind of consented to being exposed to some fucked up shit for concept and design work. It’s like someone becoming a gynecologist and complaining about having to see some very gross lady parts inches from their face daily. lol

Not sure why you even bothered to reply again. We get it. All of the rest of us, myself included, are super fucking dumb and bad at the game, and you are incredible.

Or you know... it isn't as clear as you think or else it wouldn't happen to multiple people and instead you're just a prick. :)

Era does have such reputation if you actually look outside of it.They're not even a drive-by. Delusibeta has made a lot of posts in here. And you're replying to someone who specifically wants to see Sony's bottom line reach max potential through this clause.Bro, I've seen you get banned for console warring and drive by posting at least several times. Sit down. Sorry if it's impossible to prove to someone such as yourself with clearly no knowledge of business or sales acumen but always comes into these kinds of thread with bad faith arguments and whataboutisms. You always appear in threads like this and do this. I've been in enough threads like this to have seen you enough times to actually have seen you banned for your bad faith arguments.

Oh boy, DF comparison threads are fantastic. One console with X in the name has higher resolution in a game: "Pff, you can't even see the differences. Framerate is KING." One console with X in the name has higher framerates plus VRR for basically a flawless output: "Framerate is KIN... fuck Framerate. Loading times ftw!" Just for the record: I LOVE what Capcom has done with both versions. Looks really, really good for both platforms and both of em deserve it. That goal post moving is extremely entertaining, tho.
