GamingThread Tim Sweeney: ownership of digital items should be a universal notion, independent of stores and platforms
Reason User banned (3 days): Antagonizing another member
This is idiotic. "No-one believes him" in this instance would mean no-one believes we should have a more consumer friendly ownership of our digital goods, which is fucking stupid. This post perfectly encapsulates my point about people being unable to see past their hate boners for the guy and discuss the actual things being said.Yes, which is not equivalent to "Mah free steam keyz." I mean this isn't complex "Buy once, own everywhere" is clearly not the same thing as "Buy once, get multiple distinct copies of the game."


GamingThread Nintendo of Japan apologizes for not telling customers that TMS #FE Encore is based on altered Western version of the original, offering full refunds
Reason User banned (duration pending): pedantry surrounding the sexualization of minors is not something we allow (per our FAQ, section "Child Welfare").
I know understanding the situation would go against the popular pattern of jumping into a thread like this and screaming about pedophiles. But, in the interest of linguistic exactitude, if the people complaining were actually pedophiles then they presumably wouldnt be interested in the characters who all appear to be in their late teens (seventeen if the OP is to be believed)? Not that sexualising older teenagers isnt problematic but its hardly unique to Japan (really it'd be more of a western or US "thing" in that case)


GamingThread What is this garbage design doing in my Atelier game?
Reason User banned (5 days): trolling and antagonizing another member + history of similar infractions
Well I suppose I'd have to agree with you about the blind part, as you apparently missed "This design is terrible". Considering the rest of the post goes on to detail how the series has always had issues I'm not really sure how you'd consider that "dismissing all complaints", perhaps you're right about your other attributes as well.


GamingThread GI: [Anno 1800 leaving Steam] might not bode well for the...strength of Steam's marketplace, it most likely is good for everyone else (See Staff Post)
Reason User Banned (1 Day): Misrepresenting the concerns and arguments of other users; antagonistic behavior
You're joking right? It's hardly a controversial statement that the steam launcher is mediocre at best and has poor organisational features.Imagine being so blindly loyal to a storefront that you can't accept the simple truth. Well, I suppose you don't have to imagine it. In general people treating a store like anything other than a business is just sad.
