F Zero X is the best racing game ever made, not by Rare and not Zelda. Also Mario 64.

I swear they are so fragile that hearing the word "fuck" more than once shatters their entire worldview and they get super anxiety.

And they really really really... REALLY love saying "yikes" because... they can't say "damn" anymore cause then they would get banned for "ableist" language. Fucking lol.

NeoGAF are like Josef Fares, no fucks given and just having fun. ResetERA are Jason Schreier, alot of "yikes" and want to be boiled alive in hell.

They should have a summit with excel about this

'Appropriate amount of fucks'

Their thread titles and responses to posts include them.

Perhaps this Canadian can help?

Funny too when their "prominent members" constantly have mental breakdowns where they curse every other word. But I guess that for FUCKING HUMAN FUCKING RIGHTS so it's not considered cursing.

Haha Jesus Christ, I would not be surprised if that came to fruition.

Haha, yeah nobody said "yikes" or that they are "lunatic" to the mods then, gee golly I wonder why!

You know what I love? How mods abstractly lock threads like the CP2077 review thread because it would be allegedly "harmful" for the "trans" members. As if that kind of thread would legitimately harm a single fucking person.

But you know what they love to leave open? Threads that relentless shit on a single person, verbally abusing and harassing them to no end, based on a version of a story they decide to be true. Aka this one, the perpetrator being the fucking GameExplain dude. You'd think after 32 pages of shitting on him and dissecting his apologies, the thread could be put to rest. But nope, need to keep going, maybe until, oh I dunno, he kills himself or something? There's been a few people begging the mods to lock it bc of the harm it is causing him, but nope, those calls fall on death ears. These are the threads that prove that there isn't a shred of real empathy in that place, no matter how much they love to pretend. I don't give a shit about the dude, but I find these pile-ups just gross.


Era is a too trigger happy in general so their reputation is undermining this situation I feel. But even Era isn't a monolith.

I looked into the situation, because I've been watching GX for years. And what that guy has done is abhorrent, he's the stereotypical manipulative, greedy CEO/boss. And he tried to get out of it by playing the victim, much like how some Era posters are ironically, but he also loved Era and fit right in there.

At the end of the day this is not our battle, but that of the ex and current employees of GX. But the discourse around situations like this one is important, not only for healthy work environments, but also for people like Andre so they can reflect and change how they manage their employees and company. I hope for him that he doesn't get death threats and shit and that he can separate the trolls from the criticism. But that's on him to do, he's a grown ass man.

Erm....what? Who are they antagonising? It’s certainly not the person they are replying to....are they banned because they said something against the press sneak fuck?

that’s one of the craziest bans I’ve see

Is this the dude that they championed and he moved to Bloomberg?

The resident evil 8 tall lady thread is something else.

I don't understand - so it's ok to slobber over tall, ugly freaks of nature with big tits? I haven't actually watched the trailer - do we know she is actually tall? Usually girls stand on a platform when working with a seamstress to see how the dress falls and allow access while standing e.g.



edit: nvm, checked the trailer, she looks taller than the others

"Lifelong Petrolhead" but his only other post in the thread is:



"Dickheads" responsibly testing new cars at a test track makes him irrationally angry. Clearly a "petrolhead".

As usual, they're ignorant and only know what they've seen in movies. Polygraphs are so unreliable and not really scientific that they're not even in admissible in most cases unless all parties agree to add them into court for the case.

But they've shown how anti-science they are so shouldn't surprise me that they want to use a unreliable test to persecute others.

I wonder if they will ban all those people in the thread that are calling out jason for hyping up an article that is pretty short and lazy.

Mentally ill moderators make for a mentally ill forum.
I'm sorry but what?

Why is the Giant Bomb thread closed for being "too negative and personal" when the subject of that thread is a personality-driven website? It's pretty much the reason why people go to Giant Bomb in the first place, not for the written articles or in-depth coverage of games but the crew itself and their views on the industry (for better or worse). Sure people were becoming increasingly critical of the website (rightfully so imo) but are we now no longer able to discuss these things without being negative? Forgive me if I'm wrong but I didn't see anyone calling for the cancellation of individuals or to rile up others to take "action against Giant Bomb because reasons". All people were doing was airing their grievances or sharing videos (or opinions) of good GB content in a normal manner.

What gives?

Apologies for going off-topic here but I just felt the abrupt closing of that thread without any warning or legitimate reason was very odd. If we're going by the stated reason of your post in that thread then why is this one still up?

Regardless, way too much creepery.

I thought part of the purpose of this thread was containment so that discussion of whatever Reset had a bee in their bonnet about didn't bleed into the gaming forum.

If this thread goes it'll by necessity mean more moderation in gaming.

Okay...

So you're just waiting for someone to slip up in here like some cartoon villain twirling his moustache, biding his time?

Look I'm not out to 'cause drama or what not, I honestly don't care if this thread stays up or gets closed but at least be consistent in your moderation and set clear guidelines. Don't just make up some ambiguous bs and call it a day. I mean you can see the slippery slope that we're on don't you? Basically, from what I understand right now, is that you're not even opposed to us making another Giant Bomb thread but only if it's wholly positive in its discourse. Seems a bit like the other place to me?

Anywho just my two cents.

Jason Schrier is a worshipped, divine entity there. You cannot post even the mildest criticism of him without getting banned, even though he fucking works for Bloomberg with global reach.

It's so fucking hilarious, but gross. There's a 40 page thread with everyone shitting on the guy from GameExplain, calling him every name in the book- posts that would make some people feel suicidal if they read them. No fucking warnings or bans, even though he's also a member there, and the mods do nothing but egg on the hatred and vitriol.

In Jason's case? "Hmm, personally I don't think the article is that-" BANNED!!!"

They follow Jason's lead though, cause he's the most thin-skinned piece of shit on Twitter and instantly bans anyone that isnt worshipping him.

Shows up as a member.

But Kyuuji could very well be one after the whole conquest against CP2077 and having to play it for research, like Astro.
Excel could also be one.

Christ, Imagine that happened. Would be an absolute massacre.

Would be funny to watch.

EDIT: An already dying site would be killed within months.

I kinda doubt they’d be so dumb as to make kyuuji or excel mods. Imagine zeovgm being a mod too.

They would immediately revolt and demand to be made “mod captain” and eventually clamor for b-dubs’ role.

Oh Zerovgm is just some dude who likes posting pictures of himself with cats.

But he absolutely would wreak havoc if modded because he behaves like an absolute idiot on the site.

B-Dubs may make a new tag for himself (again) "just popped out for a bit"

And then keep posting while he has the tag, just like last time.

Kyuuji a mod now?
Everybody predicted it here months ago that this was his plan all along. All those shitty drivebythreads FUCK CDPR and staying silent after they unpinned the stickied thread and banned other trans members.
Of course he enjoyed his playthroughs "for research" after telling everyone to not buy it lol

They're not a mod. They update this pretty often.
