This phill Spencer have done nothing but hype up ps games. Don mattrick delivered a lot of great games up until 2016, but this canceled or runied great games. He hates Xbox so much and worked so much to ruin it like never before from play anywhere to lack of games.

I already mentioned this thread in first page. Yes, that thread is indirectly connected to this thread because some reactionary posts because GOW's reviews here. And that thread is created just because GOW's reviews, otherwise it wouldn't happened. I'd explained in post on first page which is true, Klobrille. You, a legit insider, agreed to a post which accuses media for giving to Sony games a good reviews just because emotional storytelling. Which is a straight up bullshit. Now, you mentioned me here too because post in other thread. You did the same now as i did, right?

Reason User warned: Use of a slur associated with people with developmental disabilities.
Twice now they sent me PAL versions of games clearly sold as North American copies. Of course you can get a refund, but you have to pay for shipping back to them which is retarded. Please learn from my mistakes and pay the extra $5 to get shipped from a reputable seller or Amazon directly. edit: Didn’t mean any offence to anyone with my choice of words above. Simply frustrated with the situation. I apologize if anyone was offended.

GamingThread [GamingBolt] Graphics Analysis - God of War: Arguably The Best Looking Game of All Time
Reason User Banned (2 Days): Ignoring Modpost + System Wars
No, they would have warned me if it was just me. But that's another exclusive vs. an exclusive for the same platform. That's not the same argument as something on another platform which is better implemented but not recognized as a runner-up. Examples, QB, AC:O, Ryse, Injustice 2, Witcher 3, Gears of War, Tomb Raider, etc.. Here, let me give you this quote on page 2: Is that not flame-bait? Is that implicitly saying that (ala Sony) can beat out all other gaming companies?

Uncharted 4 and Uncharted TLL are lazy PS4 Pro version. Naughty Dog admit it was a rushed job but it is not the way they work... This is why the gap between UC4/TLL PS4 Pro and TLOU 2 will be huge... And the gap will be big too between UC4 PS4 and TLOU PS4... It is normal it is there second game on PS4 but the gap will maybe be even bigger on the PS4 pro version...

GamingThread Microsoft Studios (& Partners) Current and Future Landscape
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Pushing unfounded concerns about diversity efforts.
Diversity is GOOD but NOT just for the sake of being diverse because doing this defeats the entire purpose of what you're trying to accomplish to begin with. For me, I care about if the person is qualified, skilled, talented, has experience and quite simply, knows what the fuck they're doing. As long as the person meets those requirements, I don't care if the person is male or female or what their race is at all. To me, it's all about what's most important in regards to creating and developing games and even in general. Being diverse isn't what's most important. If you have a completely diverse team but they lack in all the other areas, that not only defeats what you're trying to accomplish but also proves that you're being diverse just for the hell of it when those people aren't qualified to be in the position that they're in. To sum it up - Any and every studio for that matter can be all female, Black and/or Hispanic people or whatever. As long as they know what they're doing and meet the requirements that the job/position they're applying for is met, im perfectly good with it. As for Microsoft and Xbox One, I hope that Spencer's plan is NOT to make their games available on other platforms ala Minecraft but at times, it does sound and come across that way in regards to what their future planning is.

GamingThread Microsoft Studios (& Partners) Current and Future Landscape
Reason User warned: Thread-whining and being dismissive of fellow users.
I gotta say, threads like this are massively stupid. Microsoft has a long history of hiring third parties to make titles for them. Even assuming that you actually know-know what the MS owned studios are working on, you still don't have a useful amount of information. That right there makes the actual OP of zero value whatsoever. Now, for what the thread actually is: backseat driving of Microsoft. It's entirely possible that there is a single person on this site qualified to backseat drive a platform holder. But if that person exists, they have not presented themselves in this thread. So, maybe we can just stop pretending that internet forum posters are capable of having intelligent thoughts on what an impossibly big entity should do. There is just so much that is opaque that any takes, any thoughts that an amateur has are ill-informed by their very nature. The conditions under which the thoughts are had bares no relation to the actual world where the decisions are made. Right now we have three pages of people arguing over MS acquiring Playground Games, if that is a good idea or not, if they'll do it or not, blah blah blah. But no one here has even seen the Playground Games contracts. No one knows exactly how much control MS has. For all you know, PG is precluded from developing a racing title for any other publisher. You don't know if Playground Games is committed to develop, say, 3 more entries in the Horizon franchise. . And that's a massively simplified version of the pieces on the board. There are so many parts that one would need to have a deep understanding of to truly grasp any given situation. There is a reason that people who do this kind of thing professionally - analysts - are so very bad at their job. How about we leave it to the pros? Threads like this mostly result in low effort concern trolling and little else. Nothing of value is created.

GamingThread Everything wrong in the game press industry is your fault
Reason User Banned (5 Days): Making light of death threats and toxic gender constructs
There are death threats voiced by people with severe mental health problems... and then there are death threats voiced by teenaged males who aren’t mature enough to regulate their emotions. I don’t believe that all death threats should be taken seriously, and I think that some of these so-called ‘celebrities’ or high-profile people who discuss or write about gaming are being overly dramatic when they mention these threats against them. In high school, Bob Bukuowski, the high school bully, used to threaten me every single day. That’s just what male teenagers do. How many gaming journalists have been killed so far for writing about gaming? The answer is none.

Uck, what a bunch of drivel. Gamergate nonsense started because of actual corruption and horrible video game journalism, not because some scores weren't what people wanted... The gaming journalism industry needs to stop pointing fingers and realize that is THEM that are the real problem. Always have been since the early 2000s. Look at how this horrible author fawns over review scores and metacritics but then blames the mobs for their angry responses. Look at how kotaku reviews games not by quality, but by agenda. And of course, the angry mobs are the problem as well, but your average reader is not. The average reader just wants to be informed, and it's not their fault that kotaku fails miserably at that...
