GamingThread G4 returning brings me to tears, perfect timing Sess & Co.
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Dismissing concerns around transphobia over multiple posts, severe prior for similar behavior; account in junior phase
That was always my read as well and I also watched it in real-time. He was trying to make an ironic point about man explaining away misogyny and then misread the context of a reply calling him on his wording using the wording for using the phrase “chromosomal contribution,” which he clearly just intended as a synonym/wordplay for mansplaining. Then people started jumping on him. Anyone who followed him probably knows his politics are pretty progressive. It wasn’t his best moment for sure. People make mistakes. And I know it’s tough being in the spotlight and having people insult you like that guy did. The guy’s post he was responding to wasn’t exactly the portrait of civility. It was pretty hostile. He just slipped up and didn’t ignore it and stepped in a hornets nest of a Twitter pile on in the aftermath. OP, I didn’t know they had done anything yet. I thought it was all still in planning stages. I watched that Christmas special you linked to and realized I have a lot more nostalgia for this silly bunch and what they did than I thought.

I guess I should have figured that out when the game was giving you the chance. I still feel its ridiculous but oh well, I'm not about to replay the game right away after all these hours I put into it. Edit: mybad

GamingThread What is your favorite "Tales of" romance/couple?
Reason User banned (1 month): Racist generalizations and inflammatory commentary
The "fill me with loads of mana" was with Jude in the first game. Muzet was just straight up using them, so I never really considered that an actual relationship, though I absolutely adore Muzet. I like in Xillia 2 when Gaius is surprised to find out about the intimacy of direct tethering. I've been spending the past several months going through the series in English in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Tales, so this is a topic relevant to my interests. If there was any romance in Phantasia, I didn't notice it. Same with Destiny. The awful English voice acting in Eternia killed any chemistry the characters may have had. You could see they tried doing something with Meredy and Keele, but the writing and voice acting just wasn't there. Lloyd and Colette isn't bad, but the only development you get to see is if you do the affection event with her. I went with Lloyd and Sheena on my first playthrough. Legendia is eh. I'm really not into that creepy weird Japanese "onii-chan"/"big brother" thing. I love Tear so much, and she's one of my favorite women in gaming of all time, but fuck that stupid ending to Abyss. Who even is that? I love Emil and Marta in Dawn of the New World. Marta's character totally gels with me, and they actually get to kiss. I liked Ruca and Illia in Innocence, but there was no closure in the DS version; not sure about the Vita remake. He confesses his love for her, and then in the ending she just leaves along with everyone else and nothing else said. Estelle and Yuri? I love Estelle just because I'm an Eden Riegel fanboy, but I don't really like Yuri. Relationship doesn't go anywhere. I'd rather pair Estelle and Rita. Not a fan of Vesperia, anyway. Shing/Kor and Amber/Kohaku in Hearts would have been good if it weren't for the fact that their relationship started with Shing/Kor wanting to sexually assault her. Fucking Japan. I love Asbel and Cheria. I love everything about Graces. So glad the Lineage & Legacies chapter fleshed them out a bit more. Fuck Jude. In Xillia 1, Leia was chasing Jude, and Jude was only into Milla. In Xillia 2, Leia and Alvin have a much closer relationship, but considering Alvin almost killed her in the first game, it seems kind of out of place to me. The parent/guardian relationship with Ludger and Elle trumps everything, though. I get teary-eyed just thinking about Xillia 2's ending. So disappointed with Zestiria. I loved, loved, loved Alisha and hated what they did to her. I never thought of Sorey and Mikleo as anything more than platonic, but if people want to take more from it, then go ahead. Hell, I would have been ecstatic to have an Alisha/Rose romance. I feel like the game originally started out with the intention of having Sorey, Alisha, Rose, and Sergei as party members, and then Alisha and Sergei got cut. Berseria was too dark for any romantic relationships that I remember, but I haven't gotten back to replay it yet, so I may have forgotten some of it. Tops for me are Emil+Marta and Asbel+Cheria, just because they actually have some closure. Nothing in the Tales series comes close to Alicia+Welkin in Valkyria Chronicles, though. That's my high bar.

GamingThread Sony tries to show successful level design... with a clip of DarkSydePhil
Reason User warned: making a troll thread, platform warring
This seminar from GDC 2019 was uploaded to YouTube a few days ago, and tries to go over how to make level design "immersive" and "easy to understand" and shows examples from God of War 2018. However, to demonstrate this, they show a clip from DarkSydePhil's playthrough of the game. If DSP is their floor for "appealing level design", then that explains way too much about Sony's design philosophies lately. Makes me wonder how many other developers are doing that too. EDIT Thought it timestamped in the video. It's about 38 minutes in.

GamingThread Kinda Funny Xcast Ep. 46 - Pete Hines and Aaron Greenberg Join the show
Reason User Banned (2 weeks): Trolling, long history of bans for antagonising behaviour and hostility
It's so crazy! I didn't know that Aaron had so many family members on this site, to the point that being critical of him is forbidden! If only all the other people criticized on this site had such expansive family members. This dude regularly interacts with toxic Xbox fanboys. I'm not talking about snowbikemike or Parris or whitta like some other person tried to paint it as. When Aaron retweets timdog and mecha-whatever their name is and their Ilk, he's giving them a microphone. When he engages them he gives them validity in that community. We would literally be saying the exact same of anyone else that did it. I can't for the life of me understand why he has such a staunch defense force here. Greenberg is the General Manager of Xbox Marketing. He is not above reproach. Sorry to rock your little boat so much. I'm sure he is happy you all coddle him and protect him from vicious forum posters. Xbox will continue making great games, even if you don't debase yourself.

If you’re a grotesque or some sort of freak that can’t interact with the general public, you don’t like them because of this.
