Someone should tell those idiots that the pics they are showing are posted every week by some newbies to reddit and always debunked within moments -- the angle with the draped seats is the "hard cam" side. This is where they have all the cameras on cranes and all the tech stuff. That side is ALWAYS like this, this way they can have shit moving around without hiding  the views of people sitting there, or hitting them

You can see how the opposite size is full of people.

he has something to pin to his twitter!
They also quote Nibel.

They clearly lurk on GAF.

Nibel is pretty big on twitter, even with people who are antagonistic towards GAF (which is most people who know about it).

That’s pretty hilarious, but simultaneously if we’re going to start banning people for being dismissive as a result of a failed purity test, there’s gonna be many casualties.

then Beseda adds to that

Quote from: Beseda
We often ban people for shit posting in threads with single word dismissive posts. The user in question was fully aware of this, given they'd had similar bans in the past.


Also, next time you'd like to comment on moderation, send a PM to a mod, rather than violating the ToS by discussing it in a thread.
http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?p=249508674#post249508674


Remember when, in 2010, the mods openly talked about how the TOS didn't matter and they just banned people who were being dicks?  And now GAF is all about Law and Order and the TOS?



The TOS should just read, Expose mod hypocrisy = Ban.

Exactly what I would expect from a vile and worthless coward. Completely spreads mistruths rather than acknowledging how I ruined at minimum the last two threads because nobody ever brings it up until after the fact. :bolo

There is no "21st century" definition of loli. It is literally a sexualized little girl, and that is what it will always mean. It comes from a damn book about a man who fucks a 12 year old.

Has the GAF population really changed in the last few years, or have I just grown tired of OT?  I lurked GAF for years and finally made an account because I wanted to participate in OT.  However, it seems like as soon as I did that the tone of the forum changed.  This new "Don't question if a thread is stupid or not" policy seems like icing on the cake and the number of distinguished mentally-challenged fellowed threads seemed to grow exponentially.

I'm not sure if it's me being an old man yelling at clouds or if it really has changed.

I think it's more like GAF needs an architectural review and overhaul if it's running on the kind of hardware described by Evilore.

I'll tell you, with my final breath. I came here with a simple dream: a dream of shitposting all threads. And this is how it must end? Who's the real seven billion ton robot monster here?

Can't really blame the mods though because as I pointed earlier GAF "unconditional support" quickly veers in bitter and vicious assumptions and turns into dogpiling the absent party. Nothing of help to OP (who took the advice and bailed, sensibly) or anyone really. I mean last post before lock is :

Quote
OP, there is another guy.

She might convince you there is not, you might be convinced there is not, but there is.

It is very important you talk about it now.

Because right now she lives in a world of secrecy you are not a part of.

And that makes it easier for her. Because she has been there for a while.
Without you.

You need to be in the same place to actually talk.

Get her to tell you the truth.


Not saying it will fix anything, but it will make the next months easier to take.

Trust me.

I just don't get it. I can only assume it comes from cheerleaders that don't actually own the system, or have any familiarity with Nintendo whatsoever.

I was well impressed that they were going to bother porting it at all. If the frame rate is even close to steady, regardless of the number, I'm fucking in.

You shouldn't buy Nintendo hardware and expect to have anything approaching comparable third party support. Waste of time. Just be glad that the thing is fucking cool, and doesn't seem to have any glaring omissions or flaws.

CPU isn't even relotely in the same ballpark.
More RAM, but crazy OS footprint, and it's slow as fuck RAM.
More "modern" GPU, sure, but rather weak otherwise. Not helped by the above.
Not to mention the fact that this thing needs to feed two screens.

The WiiU tech threads on GAF were hilarious. Timeless classic example of the Nintendo hardware rollercoaster and eternal cycle.

The Switch is actually a pretty well designed piece of hardware (Nvidia probably helped a lot) and positions them well going into the future. Switch 2 in 4-5 years at PS4 levels would be pretty cool to see. The market has spoken - raw power is important, but they're not the most important aspect of a console.

That Doom is even coming to Switch at all speaks volumes about the system's technical flexibility and also Nintendo's improving relationships with third parties (especially western ones.)

Or, as DigitalFoundry said themselves:

With it's graphics, what the fuck do they expect? iD can only do so much with the engine without making it look like a PS2-era game on a Tegra.

Even if Square pulls off Voodoo magic with getting the console/PC version of FF15 on the system (instead of the chibi-rific mobile port) it's gonna be like 15-30FPS itself.

Only Rocket League, which is aiming for 60FPS for good reasons (cross-play) is the only port that is doing 60. And that's because it's not that graphically demanding.

Doom on Switch is pretty cool, but it's not something I'd want to play.

Years ago when smart phones and iPod videos were coming out it was cool to me that they existed. The novelty of watching Simpsons episodes on my creative zen video was amazing. Yet for all the Gundam Seed Destiny and Code Geass episodes I loaded on it I hardly watched them. Same thing happen when I went on a trip and loaded anime unto my iPad. It was older stuff I watched, not something I hadent watched before.

Today I only use my phone and iPads multi media stuff to well read and listen to music. I wouldn't say watch wonder Women on these things or Star Wars episode VIII or even something like Logan Lucky on them. Because I rather have my experince with newer things happen on a better suited hardware. In this case something like a movie theater or my home theater set up.

That's going to kind of be my problem with 3rd party games on the Switch. I rather have those first time playthroughs on better hardware and the novelty of playing them on the go while neat doesn't appeal to me past that. With new movies or games I tend to want to give them my attention and portables I don't find are conductive of that.

I had a vita to play MGS or FFX but I played those games plenty of times so it didn't matter. I didn't have to pay attention and had already experinces them at thier best.

On the train I rather just tune out with music and read something.
