GamingThread Modded Switches can run Witcher 3 at 60FPS
Reason User banned (3 days): Lazy Dev rhetoric
That's not how the world and devs work. Don't act like you're dumb. You know as well as I know that if console devs would do more of these options (and I mean PC style, not the kind of options we already have like 60fps mode 1080p, 30fps 4K, that's ok), they would be even more lazier to actually optimize their games. They already f'n are, specially on the Switch. Since they found out the magical solution called "dynamic res" they just slap it onto every game (as well as reducing the max res in general) and call it a day. If they would handle games more like PC games, then most would run like garbage unless you choose a lot of medium to low settings, and that would be f'n depressive for a console player, cause unlike PC, we can't simply upgrade to reach the other options, so there's no point in this.

GamingThread NPD September 2019: NBA 2K20 #1, already #1 year-to-date, Borderlands 3 #2, Link's Awakening #4, Gears 5 #7, Code Vein #8
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Personal attacks and off-site drama
What part of his post are you having trouble understanding, of GameFaqs infamy? Everyone around these parts you interact with should know that you post there too along with your posting history. You treat posters there beyond terribly, it’s unacceptable. Talking down to others, condescending attitude and though not lately throwing grand fits when you weren’t first in making the Official Nintendo Direct topics. Your posting history tells the whole story. That’s all I’ll say on that. As to the post you quoted, he‘s exactly right. Not every game series is going to succeed in the West. It’s not a realistic wish. Some properties just....don’t resonate with the Western markets and that’s okay. What part of that didn’t you understand,of GamAgain, these companies aren’t charities. Nintendo has gone way way above and beyond trying to market that series to the West in a way to get it interested for a very long time now. it’s just not catching on. At some point they’ve gotta look at it and go “We tried all we could, this isn’t for lack of effort. There’s simply nothing more we can do.” What more would you have them do? Throw more money at it? There’s only so much you can throw at it. Call me an asshole all you want but at some point you folks have gotta let this go. Be grateful for what you did get. There’s a very good chance DQ 12 won’t make it West and if that happens....you’ve just gotta swallow and accept it. Nintendo truly has tried marketing it every which way you possibly can. It’s a fantastic series that’s just not taking off here. I’m truly sorry it’s not. It’s again you can’t always get what you want, stomping shrieking and screaming doesn’t always work.

Reason User banned (2 days): excessive hostility against another member
Oh fuck off with this BS, I swear that is like the go to defense and it never fails. Even if I didn't play the other versions, my OPINION WOULD STILL BE THE SAME. I was expecting something that didn't look and perform like complete shit/vaseline smeared on my Switch screen. There, you happy? I suggest you temper your need to defend such bullshit ports on a system that clearly can't handle them? hm? "Huge pet peeve" like who the fuck are you that I give a fuck about your pet peeve?

Reason User Warned: System wars, thread derailing
Hopefully they move on after Psychonauts 2. I don't care about Brutal Legend much at all (as much as I liked the concept, MAN was the execution botched in the second half) so I would be fine with that being exclusive to platforms I'll never own. Psychonauts 3 being exclusively not on my consoles would hurt.

EtcetEraThread Most dominant athlete of this generation? Simone Biles or Serena Williams?
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Sexist Rhetoric
It's Michael Phelps IMO, and I only put him over Usain Bolt because he dominated more events. "Pound for pound" Bolt is right there with him. Serena Williams only enters the discussion if you want to forget that half of the population of professional tennis players exists. I honestly don't know enough about Biles or gymnastics to comment on her, but her resume certainly looks incredible.

I can blame Windows Central for their awful "reporting", I can also agree that the other thread was a fucking shitshow. Windows Central got it wrong but made an article to get those clicks because they knew they have an audience that would eat it right up.

EtcetEraThread 337 arrested as feds take down the world's 'largest dark web child porn marketplace'
Reason User Banned (permanent): trolling
Wait, if the Feds are are reviewing child porn, does that meat that they're committing a crime? Also, I just realized that the FBI has the largest collection of child porn... Also looks like Tor is still good as ever for hiding your identity, but that idiot misconfigured his site. And really, BUYING actual child porn on the internet? You may be hiding behind 7 proxies, but even that's still insanely dangerous.I dunno, I feel like Americans treat possession of child porn more harshly than other countries. When it comes to child porn in the US, I feel like emotions plays heavily into the punishment of child porn laws more so than logic.

You can gatekeep all you want, it’s well within your right, but I’m talking about, as you put it, “policing” folks off the strength of a visual impression. What gives you the right to call out, say, a Blake Griffin looking guy who’s definitely black and can do/say whatever the fuck he wants? It just goes back to blurred lines and thats why your line of thinking is less and less common in urban metropolitan areas.

I think the urge to continue to downplay Sanders support by sophomorically self-stimulating oneself speaks enough to his opposition that I don’t really need to explain what kind of politic it is, because regardless of nauseating Realpolitik, some person giggles over this garbage. Also the hysterical response to my post by a violently centrist worm is about as out of touch with working people as I could possibly imagine an empty vessel may be is so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ such that guess the violent worthlessness of such a viewpoint may reach an audience. Fingers crossed.

EtcetEra HangoutsThread US PoliEra 2019 |OT8| The sexual deviancy of Elizabeth Warren
Reason User Banned (5 Days): Sexist Commentary
I do think many of you including myself are living in a bubble re warren. I am getting surrounded by Hillary 2.0 vibes here in MN. My wife says she doesn’t like warren. My coworker best bud says warren is a gun to the head candidate. My mom my dad don’t like warren. These are all lifelong dems and they all don’t like warren. I love her and donate to her and I hope she wins the whole thing. But honestly just the vibe to me is that she’s fucking worse than Hillary at this point in terms of talking about her from people I know. And honestly I will say she looks like a crazy pissed off bird woman in all all these debates. Everyone i watch these debates with says with no prompting damn she looks fucking crazy. Her fucking eyebrows don’t move (and that’s true). Just saying anecdotally I get Hillary vibes and it ain’t good.
