Thread Elden Ring announced (FromSoftware's largest game to date, Hidetaka Miyazaki x George R.R Martin, PS4/XBO/PC)
Let me clarify and say that I have no idea whether another Sekiro game is coming - it's just that this first game felt very "round"/completed to me which is why I don't expect any DLC (I would absolutely additional Sekiro content). You are also right that thematically, there is still a lot of things that can be done in a sequel. As for its commercial performance, I think FROM games in general are on the on the rise saleswise and I imagine Elden Ring will blow Sekiro out of the water. They know that their games will sell because many consider that FROM Software logo to be a seal of quality at this point

I did not see that Killer twist coming, goddamn.

It seems that Oda is almost done with moving all the pieces across the chessboard and that we are about to witness the begin of the inevitable escalation. And from how things look, Wano is a completely different beast compared to all the other arcs in terms of overall danger and high-risk combat scenarios.

So, I've decided to skip episode 27 (?) so that I could watch it together with the new one from last week, and good lord: I've loved Part 5 until now already, but this might slowly become my favorite JoJo season so far. Two excellent episodes back to back that nailed everything for me. The highlight of course: Doppio. From the origin story to his strange behaviour during the combat and outside of it, this might be a better villain to me than Kira. Watching him trying to survive against Nero was fucking wild to watch and had me on the edge of my seat like only penultimate episodes of Game Of Thrones do. I have so many questions that will hopefully be resolved in future episodes, but man: the idea of the boss being one of the personalities of a character who appears to be harmless most of the time is fucking genius. I expected the boss to have some kind of option to stay out of the public, but I didn't expect . What a goddamn ride this is

Thread Nintendo Direct Speculation |OT| Blue Ball Z (Read OP)
Look at how the Pokémon series has evolved over the past decade(s) Look at how these titles are performing commercially And then ask yourself: would Game Freak really throw out their way of doing things in order to appeal to vocal older fans who are asking them to basically re-define the series from the ground up? Would such a paradigm shift make sense for a series like Pokémon, an IP with a large target demographic? Right now? Don't get me wrong: I too love to imagine how certain games might end up after major changes in design and production, but in the case of Pokémon, this whole idea of a "BOTW Pokémon" is just not realistic in my opinion and considering I see this sentiment more and more, I think And no, this is not me commenting on Gen 8 in any shape or form - I do have not a single clue of what that game will be even though I expect it to be a clear step up from the LG games

One point I'd like to address: while there will be ultimately some kind of overlap between 1st party discussions and Direct discussions, I imagine the Direct thread would be more focused on speculation, possible leaks and rumors than this one. It would basically be a thread to contain "all the madness" in one place to keep this thread more level-headed and on-topic. We've discussed to have a dedicated thread after Moon's suggestion yesterday and came to the conclusion that this might work for the best going forward. So: . Only thing I'd like to ask for is that the OP keeps the opening post updated and tries to keep up with the discussion/speculation. It would stay in the main Gaming forum just like this thread

I really love the photomode, but I hope they will add a brightness setting or something else to make Spidey pop out more because he can appear pretty dark in a lot of settings. Other than that, I'm really having a blast with the game, especially after getting more comfortable with the combat system which kinda allows you to pull off wild shit pretty early in the game. And yeah, the swinging is *chief's kiss* - can't wait to unlock more abilities to further improve it

Thread Nintendo Direct 9/6/18 Postponed in Response to 6.7 Earthquake in Hokkaido
Hey, no need to apologize for sharing your thoughts. This thread is not about the earthquake, but about the Direct that has been delayed as a result of that. The thread that is about the earthquake can be found in Etcetera and I would recommend using that for having a more focused discussion about it. As such, I'm fine with people talking about Nintendo and the Direct in here as long as discussion remains respectful and doesn't cross any suspicious territories. Also, all the best to your friend and his family.

Let's stay focused, people. Also, if a big Japanese company decides to delay a livestream because of a natural disaster happening in Japan, then the best course of action is not to speculate about the content of their marketing video and make up conspiracy theories about potentially problematic content. Maybe it's time to realize that in this situation a delay is just the right thing to do.

Thread Are you not entertained? Or: let's talk about the restructuring
Apologies for my slow responses - I'll try to address as many concerns as possible, I'm surprised that you would have this reaction Shauni considering you are one of our calmer members which is visible in that specific thread you have mentioned. Don't shake your head too hard Kirb, I get what you were getting at; I still think it's a somewhat inappropriate comparison considering we are talking about a forum restructuring here and there are probably better analogies than comparing it to one of the worst wars of all time. No, the announcement thread is the announcement thread, there hasn't been a dedicated feedback thread for this ..huh? The announcement thread has been open from Friday to today. And that post count was not hidden, what you think of is the stickied thread in Etcetera that was just a relink to the actual thread in the Announcement forum. Please ask more interesting questions in the future and not stuff you can look up yourself Considering the current mob mentality in this thread I'd rather not do that? You can lash out your anger against me, the community reps might have agreed to the restructuring but shouldn't be held responsible for something that was ultimately decided by us Am I not allowed to make lame jokes like some others here now? I thought this place was supposed to be different I've just done that and edited the title, but considering how fast things behind the scenes right now, I don't expect much usage of this thread 1) No 2+3) They were not "chosen", they've built small communities on their own and have been with us since the site's inception If that's the case then you have never really bothered to approach SweetNicole or any other of us; considering I mostly know you from Hip Hop Era, I'm surprised by this.

Thread Are you not entertained? Or: let's talk about the restructuring
Well, there has been the announcement thread which offered room for feedback, but I won't pretend as if the framing of the thread encouraged detailed and thought out feedback. It also probably did not help that the time between the announcement and the execution has been short. The next big change will be 2.0 which is more of a visual change but will also incorporate some new neat features as well. There will be a feedback thread as well, and I will make sure to have more overall community involvement in decisions and to have those feedback threads. The only "hilarious" thing here is that a) you accuse us of not giving a fuck despite me being here responding and staff reading the feedback as well and b) this basically serving as a feedback thread, and even if this thread would not exist, I'm pretty sure our members would find ways to make their voices heard. This could have been managed better, but those grand statements you are trying to make are making my eyes roll more than anything Like are you just here to to be a L magnet or what Appreciated Spyder First off, thanks for taking the time to articulating your thoughts in such constructive manner - definitely a welcome change in a sea of hot takes and GIFs (which I don't mind, but I appreciate these more serious posts) What the staff and myself stand behind is the interest in helping to create a better atmosphere on the forum and the restructuring was one proposed solution to that ([quote and add snarky reply here]). At first I wasn't sure about it because our members are probably way too used to the old structure, but when I saw the data, I did not have any major objections and was ready to give it at least a shot. I have to admit that I didn't expect people to feel *this* strongly about it, but reading the replies I understand that we misread your priorities when it comes to this forum and that I at least will make an effort to make your voices heard in the future. As for the rest of the staff, most admins and mods agreed to give this a try at least as well. Some raised similar concerns as some people did in this thread, and emphasized that they do not want a "no politics" zone in Entertainment. Again, I don't think most of them expected the response, but as you have already outlined in your post, we could have done a way better job of proposing this idea. I agree that the time window we gave to the community from the announcement to the execution was not fair and should have been done differently. I'll also make sure to communicate more stuff in the future I think I can agree with his observation as well; thanks for your input Monk

Thread Are you not entertained? Or: let's talk about the restructuring
Again, I can see how a "thread ignore" feature would only put a bigger (and arguably unnecessary) workload on our members - I understand that many people are not ready to give up the old structure for the new one with this feature. As for our motives: there are probably more effective ways to drive traffic than restructuring the forum, and I'm tired of reading about this grand conspiracy of us sitting in the sacred admin chamber thinking about how we can exploit the most of our members. This change has zero to do with economic interests, as much as some of y'all would like to believe Alright, first off: insulting those members as "bootlickers" is incredibly disrespectful as those people put more time in helping with fostering this community than most members on this website. They also necessarily do not agree to anything we propose, and they've helped us with getting all the communities together in the first place. I think calling them "a very small minority of people" is a simple-minded take considering a lot of them are in charge of some of our biggest communities of the website and have usually a good read on their communities. BUT: I get that not everybody is part of said communities and that in the future we shouldn't refrain from asking the general population about stuff like this But I don't understand this sentiment considering we had a seperation between Gaming and Etcetera and Gaming wasn't free of politics either - since the website's inception. Also, I'm pretty sure we action "no politics in here" thread-whiners (and if you feel we did not, feel free to report them in the future) I know people will be pissed that I switch back to politician mode here, but let me emphasize that your voices won't be ignored

Thread Are you not entertained? Or: let's talk about the restructuring
I won't go into more detail as this thread is not about the failed feedback thread. I'll say this: it's not that we didn't like the feedback from the thread, but that certain individuals took the thread as an opportunity to lash out against the staff in front of an audience which culminated in a framing of an event that gave the impression that we shutdown a minority community which is nonsense. Our communication in that thread could have been much better, and I apologize for that. That being said: the bits and pieces of valuable feedback are being looked at and incorporated into 2.0. As for the "redesign disaster": this was always meant as a temporary solution until 2.0 and we always kept the legacy themes available to everybody. To say that we did ignore feedback is wrong as there have been new fixed added since the initial launch version. Now, I want to get back to this restructuring thing I can see that. Of course; I think even if this one started as a troll thread that we can get something valuable out of it, and so far the consensus seems pretty clear to me We have consulted with community leaders (Prominent Members™) who we see as representatives of our sub-communities about this change and their feedback has been way more positive than in this thread or the announcement one which is why perceived this as a positive change for many. To say that we didn't ask for any input is flat out wrong, but this thread makes it clear that the community wants to be consulted more when it comes to big changes like this one which will be reconsidered. Let me be clear: the Iraq analogies have been popping up because you made them in the first place, and while I get what you want to express with that analogy, I think it's overly dramatic. As for the rest of your post: I hear you. I hear you. I understand that a clean front page is very important to a lot of you and your points make sense What? This observation only makes sense if you view entertainment in general as free from politics, which it is not - I even mentioned the LeBron James example and another one would be the NFL shenanigans, stuff like the #OscarsSoWhite controversy or even some #MeToo stories that involve people from the entertainment sector. Politics would have a place in entertainment just as they do in gaming

I mean, I'm responding to it right now, and I can assure you that we listen to it all the time. I know that a lot of people have been unhappy with the new themes for example, but those have always been temporary solutions and 2.0 will hopefully make a lot of you happy as well (and if not, just tell us your concerns in the inevitable "2.0 Feedback Thread") We are also actively talking about this all the time and we have our eyes on this thread as well (yes, Fat4All, even your posts) I can see that. Considering there have been a lot of demands for a "thread ignore" feature, I think that feature will have to be implemented either way though - but maybe not as a bandaid for this situation I have to admit that I didn't expect people to put OT creators on the ignore list and will make sure this will get addressed once we decide on how to continue There is already a forum with a politics sub-forum which you are free to visit Nah, seriously though: politics and the discussion surrounding all kinds of art and events will always be a part of this community and we are not interested in pushing that into its own sub-forum
Published

(12187200)

Thread Are you not entertained? Or: let's talk about the restructuring
Just caught up and I think I understand the frustration with this change. We had the intention to seperate politics from entertainment - I think considering how we already moderate threads that are a fusion of both entertainment and politics should be evidence enough of that. A thread about LeBron James calling Clownstick Von Fuckface a bum would have both a place in the Entertainment and the Etcetera section, probably even more so in the Entertainment forum. I understand the fear that we allow people to completely dissappear in their little Entertainment echo chamber, but this Entertainment forum would not be free of that. I'm sure people will still believe what they want to believe at the end of the day, but I can promise you that when this idea first came up, we only had the best intentions in mind, which was to encourage more discussion and to give more visibility to community threads that different people might find interest in. We talked about this for a long time and decided to at least give it a shot for a some time, which we are doing now. If it's not working after a while, we're not going to leave it as it is, which makes those dooming posts about this change even more confusing to me, but we clearly haven't explained that well enough so I somewhat get why that kind of thinking happens. From what I understand though is that this change actually feels like a step back to many (especially those who are interested in news and shit) because now you not only have to navigate through three forums to get to the content you are interested in but also have to browse through forums filled with OTs. From that perspective, it absolutely makes sense that a lot of you are annoyed about this change. So I guess my question is: would you guys be a bit more happy with this change if we had a thread ignore feature that works both on desktop or mobile? Or is this something that should be reversed because it harms your enjoyment of the forum?

Pretty impressive OP - good job! Probably my most beloved shonen manga despite being aware of some of its issues. The amount of creative and memorable characters (who even show up multiple times throughout the story and not just disappear after the narrative arc they belong to ends), the masterfully crafted worldbuilding that is probably unparalleled in its sheer size and scope in the realm of manga and anime, the adventure vibe that is fueled by fantastic places and their inhabitants who often have a unique culture and history, the unfolding of massive story arcs with exciting mysteries to solve and strong emotional cores, the great overall tone of the series that can shift from hilarious to heartbreaking in the blink of an eye... All of that doesn't even consider the fact how incredibly well executed it is with the way it's structured, how smart the panels are being put together, how the beautifully drawn fights rely on unique powers and not just strength, how the author incorporates real-life mythologies and references tons of cool shit from pop culture to art history, and so on. And the wildest thing? This shit comes out like , with what I perceive as a pretty consistent level of overall quality. There is simply nothing like One Piece out there, and that's why I love it.

Thread Death Stranding | E3 2018 Trailer
I wonder what a role body contact plays in this game; Sam has handprints all over his body and the antagonists leave handprints as well. Do you gain a handprint on your body each time you get touched and die? Also, Lea Seydoux' character has a suit that has spikes on the shoulders and I wonder if that is some form of defense mechanism. We also learn that Sam's full name is Sam Porter Bridges - Wikipedia says the following about Porter: "The name originates as an occupational name, (gatekeeper; doorkeeper), or ("to carry")." Lea Seydoux mentions that the rain - - pushes everything fast-forward, which we can confirm considering in a previous trailer a guy aged incredibly fast when he got exposed to the timefall. Then there is the dialogue between Sam and this unknown person over radio: So does that imply that the baby you are carrying around is.. a clone of yourself? One that when exposed to the timefall becomes an adult version of yourself? Does that mean that the guy who handed Sam a baby before floating up gave him a copy of himself because he knew he might come back with the help of Sam? And this also means that using the baby for your light-detector-thingy is not the intended primary function of those babys. Plus this also explains why there was a giant crater at the end of the last trailer - a voidout happened and Sam came back, yet the surrounding area became a crater. of course, but yeah: this game might look weird, and bizarre right next to other AAA games, but a lot of it is also very intriguing and makes me think a lot more than let's say Tsushima does

Simple to play, but hard to master. There aren't many games with this kind of addicting core gameplay which shines especially in competitive modes. The presentation from the sprite work to the music and sound effects is absolutely masterful. Probably one of the most perfect games I have ever played. And y'all can't even begin to imagine how much that new mobile game crushed my soul

Thread 더 지니어스 The Genius -- Classy reality-game show with smart people
Alright, after reading through the amazing OP I've decided to watch the first episode I swear it has been a long ass time since I was entertained by a show. Not only are the games themselves perfect for all kinds of betrayals and scumbag moves, but the way this show is edited adds a ton to the tension and very often leads to mindblowing moments. Thank you OP - I'll watch all of this asap

Hisoka - of all the characters in the HxH universe - being the most wanted man on that ship will make this arc legendary. This dude will pull off all kinds of fuckery and I can't wait to see that shit. I wonder *when* he'll show up I also co-sign Stallion's observation that a lot of these new Nen abilities remind me of game design (Morena's ability is pretty blatant in that regard).

I really like this idea of him being hidden all the time while we see the results of his actions now and then. There are a lot of possibilites for sure; I can see all of these characters on this ship killing themselves while Hisoka survives and is the first who sets foot on the Dark Continent Same here! I wonder what will happen to the guy. Seems like he wants to collab with them?

I will move this thread to the main forum. Reason for that is that previously we didn‘t have an organized 8-4 community or a 8-4 megathread which means the thread shouldn‘t have been here in the first place. The thread will return back to Hangouts at a later point, but for now it can be in the main forum

Hey there, while I hope that you will find a new home here amongst likeminded Shenmue fans, I have to ask you to refrain from bringing offsite drama to our site. This is not an avenue to lash out against those that you deem unfair and there are probably more sides to that story (which I'm not interested in because I have nothing to do with said drama).

, why must some of y'all make this thread awkward with misinformation and moderation whining. This community thread is supposed to be a more laid back place than usual Etc threads, and not a spot for spilling stupid conspiracy theories that we get confronted with all the time, especially from toxic places outside the forum that have grudges against us and the community. Seeing how members I like and respect try to get at the staff from a similar angle is disappointing and in some cases warranted action (which broke my streak of not doing any moderation work in this thread at all dammit). There is definitely a lot we can improve, but feedback should be communicated through appropriate channels (NOT community threads) and not through sub-posts and jabs that do not have any constructive information for us to work with. This is why we mostly avoided having a public moderation feedback thread, even though I feel the current system of asking members to PM either SweetNicole, Selina or Hecht re: moderation issues seems to be too overwhelming and complicated for the majority. These thread derails can escalate pretty quickly and take the energy out of threads, and I would like to ask y'all to knock it off, for the sake of this thread which is important to both you and me. If there are any questions left, feel free to shoot me a PM.

Do you really believe the intent behind that line was to give an accurate description of talent levels over at GOOD, lmao Ultimately Pusha won, but I vastly prefer the Drake song because it still works as a song. Story Of Adidon was like two listens and me going "wow he really said that", and that's it, and I assume that most people went through this whole episode the same way While I love the Jay & Silent Bob cameo, the problem with the I'm Upset video is that it's an I'm Upset video, a song that should have been burried and forgotten, but Drake gonna Drake I guess. Scorpion 2/3 for me now and that album better be so good that it makes me wanna have a secret child in the summer tbh

Ah, I gotchu.

That Pusha is a hypocrite when it comes to authenticity in rap music and considering who he is hanging around with has no ground to stand on to judge others for however they create their art. Also, stick to the facts my g: most of the aggression in this beef came from Pusha T which also probably stems from his beef with Wayne and Birdman. Drake finally took shots at Push on Two Birds One Stone and it took YEUK two years to come up with a response that is basically the 2015 Quentin saga thrown into the microwave Either way, I won't complain about what shapes up to be a highly entertaining beef and the fact that all this NAV fuckery will stop for a few days

I mean yeah, that disstrack is hard and very disrespectful, but let's not pretend Push did address anything from Duppy freestyle and instead chose to go nuclear with Lipstickalley forum posts and pushing the Microsoft Bing search algorithms to the max Drake being inactive on social media is telling as well, I assume this is far from over and this will be a Surgical Summer indeed. I wonder who will catch stray shots because you know there will be plenty of people trying to insert themselves into this whole thing and then disappear forever (shoutouts to AR-AB) The funniest shit about all of this is the fact that there is stilla Kanye album coming out at the end of the week, right during his possibly most controversial era, lmao How can you not love rap
