GamingThread Stadia, Subscriptions, And The Death Of Game Ownership (The Jimquisition)
Reason User banned (permanent): Trolling, system warring, history of similar behavior.
well there's way more then 4 PS exclusives i'm interested in so I have zero regrets for buying my PS4. I think we know the real truth behind that-those people weren't REALLY concerned, they were just Sony fanboys looking for any excuse to hate on MS. If Sony had done a similar service(which they were in fact planning on doing before they saw the backlash to MS's announcement)you bet your ass fanboys would've been licking Sony's feet as opposed to criticizing them. Not anti-Sony BTW before anyone accuses me of that, Days Gone is easily in my top 10 games of this year, but I do get oh so tired of Sony ponies that just look for excuses to hate on MS no matter what.Wrong we did in fact used to own games, not sure how you can argue otherwise. I never got into VR myself, too high-priced for me to justify it and none of the games look very interesting. Say what you will about the Kinect, but games like Heavy Armor and Rise of Nightmares are full fledged games and feel like it, crap like The Inpatient looks barely any better then the dime-a-dozen horror games released on Steam every single day. Plus with VR if you are playing on PC you also do need a top-of-the-line gaming rig to run it properly, and only the 1% can really afford it, so VR is never going to become a mainstream success, at least not in terms of gaming.Publishers WANT streaming to be the standard though and they'll do everything they can to force people into using them(wouldn't be surprised if they started putting content behind the paywall of their streaming service, we already saw games like Kingdoms of Amalur put single-player content behind online-passes, so it's not at all stretch to assume we'll see something like that again). It's not "convenience" at all if you can't play a game because of bad internet, it's the opposite actually. Yes a game I own a physical copy of is 100% mine, it's not just me saying that, it's countries like the UK with laws like the "Sale of Physical Goods Act" which says you own thing you pay for. You sure sound like you work for Google. I doubt people will "get over" it when they literally can't use the service because of poor internet(which isn't going to change anytime soon in the U.S. thanks to companies having virtual monopolies across certain areas in the U.S.) You actually think ISPs give a shit about you? LOL they really don't.Nah you're the one making crap up here, you have zero evidence that companies actually give a shit about pleasing consumers. You sure sound an awful lot like a PR rep for these companies the way you are shilling them. Uh companies lie all the time, are you seriously not grasping that? Ubisoft lies all the time, about their games not being political about their DRM for PC games actually working and stopping piracy, etc. You really do just blindly believe everything corporations tell you don't you? I'm guessing you also believe Amazon treats their workers well right? You're the one trying to "bully" people here into swallowing this nonsense about how streaming services are a better deal, no they aren't, that's not an opinion that's a fact. You want to bully anyone who does not blindly agree with every single thing you say. You're the one with "blind hatred" here towards anyone that does not blindly asskiss corporations. Like Jim i'm highly skeptical for this for very good reasons, the games industry is so shitty it's a safe bet to assume this will be shit.

GamingThread Game Journalism Of Thrones (The Jimquisition)
Reason User banned (1 week): vilifying games journalism, trolling over a series of posts
Never once claimed that you did, maybe try some reading comprehension next time(That's one thing i'd expect a journalist like you to actually be good at, but i digress) i'm well aware of the blacklisting. Does not change the fact that you've still defended lootboxes despite ample evidence that they are psychologically manipulative and the fact that many countries have either banned them or are considering banning them, so you'll forgive people if they don't 100% trust every single thing you say. You're overly defensive responsive here only further proves my own point. Also way to stereotype youtubers,not EVERY single youtuber on the planet that plays video games gets "paid" to do so by the publisher, Angry Joe usually buys all of his games personally so you can't call him biased. I have to say games journalists strawman view on Youtubers makes them look like old men telling kids to get off their lawn and is one reason why games journalism has an image problem right now. So maybe you might want to cut out painting all youtubers with the same brush as it does not make you look like a very good person.

GamingThread The Epic Brutality Of Unchecked Capitalism (The Jimquisition)
Reason User Banned (1 Day): Excessive consecutive posting
For their sake and everyone else's I sure hope so. BTW i'm surprised Jim is making tomorrow's episode entirely about the Sonic film as movies aren't really something Jim talks about much outside of Spin Doctors, so i'm a little unsure if there's going to be enough material for a full episode without it feeling padded out. As for the film itself, personally I didn't think the design of Sonic looked THAT bad, but I guess changing it is the best move at this point. Part of me thinks Paramount was already in the process of re-doing the design when they put up the trailer as Sega had apparently been complaining about the design for months, I can't help but wonder if this was their way of trying to generate more buzz for the film.

Reason User banned (5 days): Trolling, "lazy dev" rhetoric over a series of posts
I don't think his previous videos were wrong in any way, it is largely Valve's own fault it's even come to this, had they not gotten lazy with making games they likely wouldn't be facing such a threat from Epic to begin with. I hope this wakes them up and we finally get Half Life 3 as a result.
