I can sympathize with him. personally I will not be participating so much with the release of Death Stranding. this board spoiled MGSV for me, and I was only lurking. I like the mystery to DS and want to preserve that. once I start the game I am going on blackout.

also, as another fan of Kojima's it has been insufferable just waiting to the release. this isn't a fault of this board itself, it is an internet wide, social media thing, i have seen many forums full of trolling & ironic hate & console flame wars. perhaps it is a testament to how big an impact this one auteur has on gaming. what he has made is so iconic, so far above most other creators (compare him just to the Bethesda team alone, just QC & polish are above and beyond most games) but it makes it difficult to discuss the game at all.

too many trolls. too many haters. once the ending leaks in a major way people will be openly spoiling it just to troll. so I'm going to be ignoring most DS threads for a while for these reasons. I know it's impossible to block for this sort of thing, but I can do my best, and besides, I'd rather be, u know, playing the game itself, than arguing about it online.

godspeed, MHK. hopefully we will see you again soon!

The lad just wants his time off with Death Stranding. No problem with that
It's the opposite, he is saving a playthrough of the game on January 1, 2020.
Why? One can only speculate why he is a Kojima fraud.
He is a porn addict, fiddling with his cock all day to Russian Institute 2.

What a waste of life.

He requested to be banned? Am I understanding this right?

If so I dont understand why. If I want to stop going to mcdonalds I wont ask them to ban me, Ill just stop going there. Unless I am a person who enjoys the attention and secretly hope they will ask me not to stop coming there.

Are you implying NeoGAF is the McDonald's of gaming forums?

But seriously, MHK likely requested the ban because as a very active poster he wouldn't be able to show restraint from logging in again. He does like the attention; he previously asked to be banned for a week. But I think around the same time he also said something about taking a year-long break from posting.

Damn MHK looks to he going through a hard time. You might not read this but stay strong man and if you need to talk I'll be happy to chat.

Losing a parent is what worries me the most and I can't imagine how hard it must be to deal with the knowledge of that happening soon.

Guys I'm going to tag y'all as this is kinda important. He mentioned this to me in another thread so it seems that he has some actual things to deal with right now.




So yeah... let's just hope things are going okay for him :)
Then I completely understand this. Like Brap, I didn’t realize either.

He should take any and all time he needs.

Is anybody in contact with him? I don’t want to violate his space, but would love if you could pass along how much we appreciate him, and support him in dealing with this.

Please also explain that it hasn’t even been 24 hours, and I miss him terribly. :messenger_tears_of_joy:

Don’t judge me. There’s just something about his positivity and fun that’s so infectious and nice to have around. Doubly so if he was dealing with something like this.

I think he is still able to read this thread as a guest. He just can't log into his account.

Via incognito or a cookies delete, yeah. When I was banned, I had to do that to browse as a guest, or I was permanently stuck at the ban screen when coming to Neogaf.

I just assumed that if he self-banned, it’d be a no visit thing as well. If he has read this thread, that makes me really happy.

Yeah I feel like a bit of an asshole now. I tried to do the opening post in his weird backhanded compliment sort of way, and know what I do now I would have done it a bit differently.

I don't understand self bans...JUST DON'T LOG ON!

I'd like him more if he wasn't such a ridiculous gimmick poster. They drive me nuts. Hopefully if he comes back he'll tone it down a notch, we really didn't need all these Kojima threads.
That’s what I did as I took some time to reflect, but not everybody is able to resist the temptation if the temptation is there.

I know I had to stop myself from clicking here once or twice. It’s habit forming and hard to break without outside help.

I check the site alot, but I don't really engage a ton. I stick to my few communities and threads that interest me. Too many here think they have to visit every thread and comment everywhere. Take a breath, go play a game folks :)

But Nintendo only releases a few good games a year. Gotta fill the time somehow.

That’s very noble of you given he made it abundantly clear he wants to violate yours
