GamingThread Xbox Series X: What You Can Expect From the Next Generation of Gaming (12TF, RDNA2 & Zen 2, Hardware Raytracing, Variable Rate Shading) OFFICIAL SPECS
Reason User banned (duration pending): Platform warring and trolling. Long history of infractions for the same thing.
Oh, and PC Master Race people, this is the new baseline for you to claim your membership card: 8C/16T CPU RTX2070Super or better NVMe SSD Anything less, and a console will be bettering you. Might as well call yourself PC Lower Caste.


GamingThread Twitch Punishes White Apex Legends Cosplayer Who Painted Her Face Black (read Staff Post before posting)
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Inflammatory false equivalencies over multiple posts, ignoring staff post, excusing blackface
Yeah, because I'm American and educated in the horrific history of racism (and blackface) here, I understand why people should not do it. HOWEVER, I am VERY uncomfortable with someone being punished and bashed for simply trying to recreate in cosplay a character they love. The whole point of cosplay is to dress up like something you are not. Add onto that fact that this is young non-American person who had no knowledge of the history and I find it even more disturbing that people STILL want to pile on.


GamingThread Tim Sweeney: Epic Games Store is making the industry better but gamers don't see that
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Trolling and a History of Similar Behavior; Numerous Accumulated Infractions
I'll go along with that. However, unlike those other ecosystems, that require you to buy new hardware (a Xbox, a PS4) if you want games that are exclusive to them, all this requires is you download the Epic storefront for free and create a free account on the ACTUAL platform, Windows. Not a big deal. Stop crying people. You are PC gamers, you should be used to jumping through hoops with video card drivers, etc. to get your game on.


GamingThread After just 30 minutes of playing Shadow of the Tomb Raider, I am in disbelief on how bad the writing is
Reason User Banned (5 Days): Sexist objectification
I'm probably going to get ripped for this but..... Lara isn't sexy enough. Part of the fun of the earlier Tomb Raiders was that Lara was cartoonishly hot. These past three games go out of their way make her serious and eliminate any obvious sexiness. She's been turned into a sexless killing/exploring robot with Daddy issues. Even the movie based off these new games did this, which is one of the reasons it failed. Angelina Jolie's Lara played up the sexy angle just like the games at the time did and it was a raging success. Back to Leisure Suit Larry #52 for me, I guess.


GamingThread Inside Xbox - July 10th at 12PM PST/8PM BST - We Happy Few, FH4 (extra stream after), Gamepass
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Consistent system warring + console related trolling
Snorefest, just like the recent Xbox One update that added.... folders! Woot. Enjoy your summertime activities people. Get outside. Swim. Eat Ice Cream. Mate. Get back to gaming in the fall.


GamingThread Any other PS4 Pro users getting best version of 3rd party games on Xbox One X from now on?
Reason User banned (3 days): inflammatory post, platform warring.
This sort of thing happens a lot with PC owners. They just *have* to find a way to mention they are playing the best version on their Uber-PC, even if the discussion has absolutely nothing to do with them, like this thread. Kinda sad. EDIT: ALL THESE EXAMPLE ON THE FIRST PAGE ALONE. Nobody asked you about your PC guys. Zip up your pants. LOL.


GamingThread State Of Decay 2 Still Feels Rough, Despite Some Promising Ideas
Reason User Warned: Console Wars
Satonya Nutella being stingy with his Azure servers. Mark Whitten and Albert Panello told me each Xbox One would have access to the power of 6 Xbox One CPUs in the cloud for free. What is going on here? Trying to get my friends to play this game with me but they are already getting turned off by the negative previews. Same thing happened with Sea of Thieves. Pulling teeth to get them to even try it. This bad press DOES effect things. I'm personally concerned about Crackdown 3 and it's server-side destruction. It was conceived when "Cloud Powered" was one of the foundations for Xbox One and they really seem to have got away from that. If I can't wreck a whole city with my friends, I'm going to be so frikin mad I may finallly buy a PS4. The horror.
