GamingThread PlayStation boss Jim Ryan sent an email today asking his staff to "respect differences of opinion" on abortion rights.
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Dismissing concerns around women's rights. Multiple prior severe bans for similar behavior
Why exactly are people expecting a statement from Sony or Jim, or for him to lose his job over this? This was an internal email where he told people to respect each other's opinions, presumably in support of pro-life opinions (though has this been confirmed?). It's an incredibly stupid message delivered in possibly the dumbest way possible, but, it's not like he did something illegal, unless I missed something?


GamingThread Introducing GTA+ for GTA Online (PS5/Xbox Series X/S Exclusive)
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Platform Warring; History of Platform Warring
It is so funny that it's only on consoles because they know damn well that console players will sign up for anything.


GamingThread [TheGamer, Written by Chan Khee Hoon] Sifu's Brawler Is A Soulless Caricature
Reason User Banned (1 Month): Dismissive Commentary over Representation Concerns; Prior Bans for Similar Behaviour
I have to admit, I don't think the article in OP does a good job of providing examples as to why the game is soulless. I understand the occasional off translation sucks, but, the examples of "no money, no goods" or use of the word "Sifu" aren't enough to convince me of any malice. It then, by design or not, leads many to believe the all-white studio had zero Chinese consultants on the issue. But, the Verge article details that they did, and those consultants also worked on the localization, cultural elements, and, to top it off, it's been well-received in China. Genuinely willing to be further educated here, but, I feel like I'm reading two pretty different stories about the development of the game, and only one of them is based on conjecture, with no good examples other than it's made by a white team.


GamingThread Red Ring of Death Official Poster
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Platform Warring; History of the Same
I'm not offended but, I do think it says a lot about the history of Xbox that this is something they pay attention to when "celebrating" the brand. Like, it just shows there's not really much to talk about. It's like if Sony had a poster for the PSN hack or something. Like, that's cool you remember it, and all, but, this actually sucked.


GamingThread Marvel's Avengers coming to Xbox Game Pass (Series X/Xbox One/PC/Cloud) on 9/30
Reason User Banned (3 days): Trolling
Didn't bother when it was on PSNow and won't now that it's on XGP. This game has been dunked on since day one, so, I'm kinda shocked to see so many people willing to try it. Are the standards for games on this service really that low?


GamingThread As a PS5 owner, it bothers you that Sony will have just 1 big AAA PS5 only original game in 3 years?
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Hostility, history of similar behavior
Ah, yes. I guess it's always just about the business needs. There's an ignore button right there, dickhead.


GamingThread Epic Vs. Apple Docs: Nintendo Specifically Bars Japanese Partners From Working With the Yakuza
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Meta Commentary; Platform Warring; Prior Ban for the Same
Fucking disgusting anti-Yakuza-consumer practice from the evil corporation!


GamingThread IGN: Mass Effect Legendary Edition Changes Some Gratuitious Camera Shots
Reason User banned (3 weeks): Hostility over concerns of sexism
What? How? Are game characters not allowed to be sexy? Is there not an ongoing *27 page* thread about the RE8 lady? Miss me with that shit.


GamingThread A Video About Playing Videogames From Terrible Companies (The Jimquisition)
Reason User Warned (Permanent Thread Ban): Thread Whining
Who’s surprised? Dude’s channel is only meant to rile people up. He’s clearly not the messiah he thinks he is.


GamingThread TBT to when Naughty Dog cast a white girl doing an accent as a South African black woman and said she was better than actual South African black women
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Dismissive commentary in a sensitive thread. Regardless of what else is happening right now, minorities can still raise their concerns about issues that affect them.
Yeah, it was a bad move, and, they've already proven they are avoiding similar casting mistakes with TLOU2. ND devs are getting yelled at daily right now, so, I'm not gonna pile on to that with an ancient conversation that's been had a million times before, during, and, after development of TLL.


GamingThread Naughty Dog Deserves To Spring Leaks Forever (The Jimquisition)
Reason User Banned (1 Day) - Thread Whining
Sorry if this is thread-whining, but, why does Jim still get his own special threads here? How many troll videos and clickbait titles does it take to get him off the list? It's nice that he occasionally has a good message now and then, but, we all know the overwhelming majority of Jim's content is barely researched troll content. So many content creators out there deserve a spotlight on this forum who are completely capable of presenting arguments like this like an actual adult.


GamingThread Death Stranding - Review Thread (see staff post for discussion guidelines)
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Ignoring staff post
I don't know about that. Just feels like SEO chasing to me. This review is probably the most people outside of their audience have talked about Giant Bomb in ages. They're gonna do all they can to hold on to it.


GamingThread Paste: "Red Dead Redemption 2's Red Face Proves How Far Games Haven't Come"
Reason User warned: dismissive drive-by in a sensitive topic
If you take everything as an extreme insult (ie: considering Charles a redface character), people will stop listening to you. Like, this is exactly the kinda thing that fuels the "aRe You OfFENdeD?" bullshit.
