GamingThread Four months into Xbox Series XlS release and no first- party game?
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending Review): Platform Waring; Long History of Platform Waring
Those people can’t comprehend that another platform holder is giving you more value for less money because their favorite company is not doing the same and actually raised their prices!

GamingThread Phil Spencer on Bethesda exclusivity: “I don’t have to ship games on any other platform to make that deal work for us. Whatever that means.”
Reason User banned (duration to be determined by admin review): Platform wars. Long and relentless history of platform warring and trolling.
I could say the same thing: thinking a remaster and an expansion to a game is going to sell consoles.

GamingThread GameInformer claims Cyberpunk 2077 crunch story was blown out of proportion [up: refuted by Jason Schreier: see threadmarks]
Reason User Warned: Inflammatory Generalization; Unions do not Encourage Laziness
I'd say it's like that in any industry though, the more time you dedicate to your employer/organization, the better you will be seen as you are showing dedication, there is nothing wrong with that and of course it should somewhat affect your career growth as when it's time for promotions you will always be compared to your peers, and no one would choose the person who works less, especially if the people you are comparing are just as efficient. I manage people and dedication is an actual thing we look at and on which I am being looked at as well. I work in a field where deadlines can't be pushed back and where crunch is often forced, I've done 36-48 hour shifts more times than I can count (and I have a fixed salary so no extra income in my case), but nothing is stopping me from leaving my job. I have a wife of 15 years now and kids by the way so it's not like I don't have a family life to attend to. In the end, business is business, and it's totally understandable. And after seeing a few places with unions (just look at Canada Post for a good example of how bad it can get and how much of your hard earned money is wasted there) and see how easy people have it, how well they are paid yet how ineffective they are in general, I can't say I agree with the idea of unions everywhere to protect workers. Imo, it encourages laziness as they tend to overprotect, but that is what I have more commonly seen in my career before my current job. I've mostly worked in government jobs though where I don't like to see taxpayer money go to waste so maybe it's different elsewhere.

GamingThread [WCCFTECH-Rumor] Lockhart Will Be Half The Price Of The Series X; Series X prepared to be $400, July Event Will Be A “Night Of Mic Drops”
Reason User Banned (1 month): platform warring, accusations of astroturfing, hostility, prior bans for hostility and platform warring
I don’t even know how you can say something like this and keep a straight face. How much does Sony pay you, I’d like to get on their payroll as well.

GamingThread Phantasy Star Online 2 is out on Microsoft Store
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Hostility; prior ban for similar behavior
I installed 3 hours ago and was getting over 80Mbits/s, within 30 minutes I was playing the game. I think the problem is actually 18 inches in front of the screen...

GamingThread Introducing DualSense, PS5's controller (Audio Jack Confirmed)
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Trolling, Platform Warring; Prior Bans for Trolling
Why would anyone want disconnected dpad arrows though? It goes against dpad design since the beginning of time, it’s simply wrong.Dont you get it tough, we had “nextgen” trigger rumbles on Xbox One and then 3D rumble on Switch, and the reality is, nobody gave a shit. No one is asking for those features and it’s more than likely to add to the cost of the controller and be forgotten a few months after PS5 release. Adding a few rumbles here and there doesn’t add to the experience, it’s a freaking controller! What it needs is to be confortable in hands and precise for playing video games. Also, the last part of your post makes no sense and has nothing to do with controllers, but I can understand that your scared that your favorite plastic box has less focus on horsepower and instead has haptic feedback that won’t show up on screen and that will be forgotten by this time next year.

GamingThread Devs react to PS5 specs - Twitter edition
Reason User banned (5 days): Hostility. Trolling. Prior ban for similar behavior.
Are you just stupid or something? You’re basically like my 3 and 5 year old daughters, just repeating wha the other said thinking it has any meaning whatsoever. If you at least came up with a reply or something instead of acting dumb. Hope you enjoy your fast travels as that’s all your PS5 ssd will be good for.

GamingThread Ring Fit Adventure Is The Best Workout I've Ever Had (and that's because it's an incredible game)
Reason User banned (3 days): Inflammatory commentary. Trolling over a series of posts.
Have you ever done CrossFit? You say it got a ripple into fitness, yet I find CrossFit sessions harder than my weight lifting sessions. It’s for from casual. Wht il saying is people see those games as something tha will get them fit and is a good replacement to training, but it’s not! It’s barely a start. Also, anxiety going to the gym, really? I see fat people at the gym all the time, all they get is praise. Nobody judges someone trying to get fit, as they are actually trying, not pretending to try!
