GamingThread Kotaku: Lost Ark's Depiction Of Female Characters Feels A Decade Out Of Date
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Excusing sexism, history of severe infractions
While this ridiculous and sexist and tbh I wish Amazon would've changed a lot of it (like how they changed some of the more skimpy outfits), this article does smell a little like "americans pretending that everyone is an american". "Now in 2022, it's not only bad, it seems as if the folks making this game just ignored the last decade or so of discussions and debates surrounding representation of women and non-masculine characters in games." Like yeah, no shit that Koreans probably aren't keeping up on the social issues in America. Clearly. Otherwise this stuff would, sadly, not be so prevalent in Korean games. I mean just look at Black Desert for another ridiculous example. I'd love to be proven wrong but I think this sort of conversation has not quite reached Korea yet.

GamingThread IOI Issues apology for Hitman 3 Steam launch, offers free upgrade to Deluxe Edition or 7DS DLCS, then puts Epic Store version on sale 50% off
Reason User Banned (1 week): History of trolling/platform warring in Steam related threads.
Everyone needs to stop pretending like different stores can't have different sales. If one store puts an item on sale that does not make me entitled to get this same discount in every other store I go to.. lol lmao. 99% of people that wanted to play this played it on EGS. These are just the few people that decided to be weird about it and wait a year and then buy it on Steam for a worse deal instead of just.. buying it at the store it was originally available on.

GamingThread Easy Anti-Cheat requires developers to use Epic Online Services to enable Proton/Linux support
Reason User Banned (5 Days, permanent thread ban): Trolling, previously warned for similar behavior
Why would it be a barrier for Steam Deck/SteamOS? I swear some of you are so dramatic. It literally makes NO difference. None. Zero. No difference at all.

GamingThread [Gematsu] Salt and Sacrifice for PC is launching exclusively on the Epic Games Store
Reason User Warned: Antagonizing another member.
You also don't go to a different supermarket if the one you frequent doesn't happen to carry the item you're looking for? This mindset is ridiculous and it's frankly quite funny there's still posts like this in 2021 lol

GamingThread [Kotaku] Metroid Dread Is Already Running Great On Switch Emulators
Reason User Warned - Platform Warring
Finally a good Kotaku article. Very rare. And if Nintendo does not want these sorts of articles to be written they should maybe consider making a current-gen console. But who am I kidding.. it's Nintendo.

EtcetEraThread Boyfriend gets slapped by his girlfriend for playing Fortnite with Pokimane on livestream.
Reason User banned (duration pending): sexism, previous severe infraction for a similar ban
It can happen to anyone, hell I've been in an abusive relationship like that before. And you know what? If he'd have said "Sorry, I'm not gonna play with women on stream because of my wife" or whatever Ninja said back then people would've shit on him too for being "shitty" despite just having a crazy partner that'd go off because of it lol

GamingThread "I don't buy X game because person Y is in/involved in the game"
Reason User banned (3 days): antagonising other members
Oh lawd, we still upset about that? lol It's a shitty comparison. Not buying a game because of a high level company decision is different vs not buying a game because a single developer is a shithead

GamingThread Metro Exodus for PC a timed exclusive for the Epic store (Steam preorders honoured, physical copy with Epic key). Thread update: see Threadmark
Reason User Banned (1 Day) - Ignoring Mod Post & Posting just to antagonize
I love saving 10$ while not supporting the scumbags over at Valve, and the Metro devs will get more money than if I paid full price on Steam. Works for me.

GamingThread CS:GO twitter account teasing an announcement during The Game Awards 2018?
Reason User Warned: Derogatory Language
Nah, they're just retarded. Everything looked like an update last night, the blog even went offline for a bit - but they delayed it last second. This isn't a TGA tease lol

EtcetEraThread AMC clears Chris Hardwick to return to Talking Dead
Reason User banned (length under admin review): misogyny, trying to paint women as liars as a common thing, account in junior phase.
Sure, but there's a possibility that they'd lie. For whatever reason, spite etc. Who knows how "rare" this really is - especially nowadays when one accusation basically gets someone fired. Its all too easy. There's plenty of cases of women making up rape stories to ruin lives. Not saying she did, I'm just saying - In this case, tough shit. Maybe he did it, maybe he did not - but as of right now it's a baseless accusation without any proof so it's only right he gets his job back etc. until he's -proven- guilty.
