-Third party doesn't release any game on Switch- Fanboys/Incels: "Fuck you random company, at least port your old catalog." -Third party releases an older game on Switch- Fanboys/Incels: "Fuck you random company, at least release one of your new games." -Third party releases a new game on Switch obviously not on par with more powerful consoles- Fanboys/Incels: "Fuck you random company, why doesn't it look and run closer to the PS4 and PC?" -Third party releases a new game on Switch on par with more powerful consoles at full price- Fanboys/Incels: "Fuck you random company, this game is down to $1.99 on steam from $60. Not buying it." -Third party releases a new game on Switch on par with more powerful consoles at reasonable price- Fanboys/Incels: "Fuck you random company, release some exclusives because I already have this on steam." ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

EtcetEraThread I just read about otherkin, those who claim they are. Are they roleplaying or do they actually believe in it?
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Inflammatory False Equivalences Surrounding Gender Identity
I'm torn. On one hand, I would argue that to be "otherkin" would be harmful to transgender people and in line with the Rachel Dolezals and transagists of the world. On the other, where do we draw the line? A cisgender person can't really fully conceptualize the existential angst of being transgender, in the same way that a binary trans person wouldn't be able to fully conceptualize the angst of someone who's genderfluid, or nonbinary, or agender, or third gender. An argument for invalidity because of non-understanding seems incredibly exclusionary to me. I mean, it's not like we've cracked the code and can effectively point out that a certain set of neurons firing in a specific way is indicative of real pain and suffering. All I can do, I think, is take people at their word and respect it, even if bad faith actors slip through the cracks.

It may incidentally hurt transgender acceptance but that doesn't mean it doesn't have a right to exist and be acknowledged. That is the exact same excuse some gay and lesbian people use to exclude transgender people. The irony is thick.

GamingThread New games to be announced for Epic Games Store at Gamescom Opening Night
Reason User banned (3 days): bad faith trolling, platform warring
this is called exclusivity. this has been done for quite a few decades and since ms moneyhatted quite a few games last gen, people seem to be very distrustful. why dont you try to reason, why there is no pokemon or super mario game on playstation? or no uncharted game on xbox? EGS has a reason to exist: some devs would like to try out another platform, others only want to see their game being sold instead of being pirated(because GOG/steam seems piratable(i dont know if this is real, because i dont play on pc, but this seems to be a thing) another reason is that the EGS is a platform with nothing else than only the game being on display. or another store which does not shit out every game out there in existance. you could argue, why the humble bundle is not offering an option to donate the money to help refugees, so why do you argue in the same why against the EGS?

Mah shooting. waaah.Only in the eyes of nothings.Literally. You're right. Not shooting with a gun, not riding a bike, not using stealth to evade monsters and people, not fighting hand to hand with enemies and trying to escape them, not descending mountains with ropes, not managing stuff like drinking water, sleeping, and weight management, not fighting a huge monster in a boss battle, nope, just walking, fall of cliffs, ladders, and pee. sigh.... How can this blatant trolling driven by a dislike of someone's character fueled by jealousy of someone's accomplishments be allowed in a forum that supposedly celebrates the medium?

Reason User Banned (1 day): Antagonizing another user
Again, no fault of it lies with Sony when Disney are the ones attempting to strong arm. They signed contracts and are paid by Sony. Same way footballers get criticised for social media childish ness when attempting to force a move to another club. It just perpetuates that Disney can do no wrong. We've seen "fake news" tweets go viral and it'll get messier from here.

Sony is a financially weak foreign company that constantly tries to grift and dilute anything in American culture that will make them money. I'm so glad Disney is teaching them a big boy lesson. Spider-man needs to be out of the hands of Sony entirely.

Reason User banned (duration pending): hostility, aggressive whataboutisms, sexist concern trolling + previous infractions about racism and sexism
What the fuck are you guys even talking about? MGS 1,2,3 WERE great and critically acclaimed games. The stuff he did after that does not change that in the slightest. What is this logic? OoT is unplayable to me nowadays...yeah, let's call it a bad game and question the MC from 1998.... Let's be consequent and ban all discussion about Kojima and his work on this board and in order to avoid hypocrisy let's ban all discussion about Dragonball, Yakuza, Senran Kagura, DOA, Xenoblade 2 and many others...because all of these feature the same level of pervy female exploitation. Man, you guys are really starting to make my blood boil with this nonsense. And btw: your keyboard campaign against Kojima won't help the millions/billions of women who really are treated like shit in this world and it won't stop the better off women from pursuing careers where the exposure of their body is part of the job.
