NeoGAF & ResetERA - The Hilarious N̶e̶v̶e̶r̶e̶n̶d̶i̶n̶g̶ Splintering "Gaming" Forum Circus

I have two theories: (1). As the reddest, most Communist dictatorship forum on the Internet, REE the best place to farm SJW brownie points, working your way up the woke ladder to establish a glorious legacy as Champion of the Right Side of History (2). Masochism, either out of crippling guilt for some secret past grievance, or sexual gratification from constant bullying, pressure and paranoia. Is today the day I get a warning? Kick me, daddy. Umph, kick me fucking harder...

What I've always wondered is how any account survives Junior Phase.
They definitely utilise cancel culture to its fullest extent and are able to force "problematic" actors to capitulate whether they're journalists, developers or even tangentially related like that CDPROJEKT RED PR guy who they doxxed. Funnily enough, many of those participating within the thread where the dox was posted troll shielded the doxxer, "it's not doxxing because he works in the industry" or "What is doxxing anyway? They just posted his full name and face not his address".

There is definitely a massive amount of strategy involved in terms of breaking into the hierarchy. I've often thought of making an account there to see how long I can last, not trolling or even expressing opinions - I figure someone will try to get me banned for some bullshit reason. I never have made an account there though because you can't use throwaways and I definitely do not want to give these crazies anything identifiable.

Same here. One could make game out of seeing how long they survive. Hell, it wouldn't be hard to fit in. The average poster is so crazy it's difficult to discern trolling from toeing the party line.

Ultimately, I decided my energies were better spent channeled elsewhere. There are plenty of alternative online communities to "the biggest gaming forum on the Internet, ree" that don't evoke the depressive malaise of ResetEra.

So there is an absolutely insane troon on NeoGAF/Resetera who went by the name tearsofash, who has now undergone the Resetera witness protection, which is when mods rename an insane troon account to something else

I think Kiwifarms covered this insane troon in years gone by, but a reminder it is posting again under that new Resetera username Scarlet Death.

So Resetera will ban people for mild wrong-think, but will rename and protect a genuinely violent troon? 🤔

That troon privilege on Resetera. If you ever signup a troll account, always be a troon. You can say and do whatever you want and be mod protected.

Lady and Trish are both in their mid forties as of DMCV. The claim that developers/publishers only censors underage looking characters is such a massive fucking lie.

MK ladder endings are traditionally non-canon. Maybe 1-2 out of 30 accurately follow the story line. It's kind of like the old Twisted Metal games where the reward for winning was your character breaking canon. I expect the story mode will be filled with cheesy feminist 1 liners though.

I mean... Shao Kahn's kinda cool either way even if he's a basic ass villain, so I'm not upset by this but boy is the devs' saltiness showing.

Why do you need subtle jabs in a series based upon ripping your opponents spine out?

Like the jabs used to cause your fighter's kidneys to rupture.

That was apparently done at Capcom's own judgement only to be undone later for every region outside of Europe. If you own the disc it never really affected you in the first place though.

Why do they do that? It just attracts more attention to the insane troon.

A few people actually mention this but they're ignored by all the people who never played the game but totally believe this random article about it being CIA propaganda for a war a decade later lol

My favorite post by far is this one:

Ignoring the first part about COD plots, it's like, dude it's fucking Tom Clancy, the ultimate CIA/black ops/etc. fan fiction writer with decades of ties to all these agencies all over the world. The games are all just as anal as he was about all the technology and weapons and TACTICS being canonically accurate. It's the one place nobody would have to do any kind of secret propaganda in favor of the agencies/forces because everyone will willingly put it into the work and even ask them for help to get it right.
That's hilarious. I can remember a story about Clancy arguing with the original Splinter Cell devs over Fisher's iconic three-lens headgear. Evidently he wanted to go with realistic goggles, which would've required an extra item, and it was just slicker to have a 2 in 1 nightvision/thermal system. Thankfully the devs won that one.
