I kinda want to see the conversational climate in Neogaf now. Sounds fun.

Before it went offline, ppl were making crazy retarded threads, posting offensive gifs, cursing the mods, asking to be perma banned, and other stuff. Running wild basically without mods. One thread titled “neogaf is up for auction!” Was locked pretty quick though. Lol

Ethomaz welcome gaf brother!!!!

How dare you speak his name.



Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

Been a member of both sites for a while, though admittedly I frequented Gaf more frequently and lurked here. I tried to stay away from political discussions because I noticed they were quick to ban people who had any kind of differing opinion. Hard to have legit discussions that way, IMO.

I mostly posted in Nintendo threads and sales threads so hope the Nintendo and Sales community is good here. I ask that you not stereotype Gaf posters. There were a lot of good posters on Gaf (and a lot of trolls).



Damnit, get neogaf withdrawal symptoms. Would always visit the site for news. I keep typing into search without thinking.



A lot of them are just going to call everyone over here a racist or nazi for disagreeing on which flavor of ice cream is the best or some dumb shit like that.

If Neogaf does go away after what apparently happened, i'm not gonna say I hope none of them go here since I don't give a fuck enough to care about something like that, but just leave their dumb shit they acted before back at Neogaf then instead of bringing it here.

That's fine, but this being your first post I guess we can consider you a newcomer, right? So, welcome! And get an avatar, dude, that's pretty important (joking, but maybe not).

I pretty much visit almost exclusively Nintendo discussion here, and have been doing fine for 3 years, so I guess you can say that community is good. Sales discussion I haven't been as involved to know how good it is, generally I only enjoy seeing the numbers themselves rather than debate about them.

why not? (i'm curious)

For a number of years Nintendo's sales were not good almost everywhere except Japan.  So a lot of nintendo fanboys on gaf who liked to brag about sales found a safe haven on their mediacreate thread.  Obviously happy with Nintendo performance in Japan but constantly downplaying the ps4 in Japan since it launch being really negative about it.  

 

Every game not announced for a Nintendo platform was stupid according to them and the port begging was hilarious. It actually became a meme. 

 

Anyway,  I'd rather not see these guys come over here but if they do so be it. 

Wait. Is this serious? (sorry, i can't tell). I mean, I know most of us here joke around in the sales threads, but, deep down, I don't think any of us actually care too much about the sales of video game-related items to the point that we'd be offended by them. Unless...maybe I am mistaken? Do the sales/sales expectations actually matter that much to you? My mom always said that I seemed kind of oblivious to certain things, so maybe I have been unaware...

I'd argue that vgchartz had more leakers than GAF this year.

I dont mean NUMBERS when i say leak. I am talking about nate drake(direct feed games) and his NX rumours. Or from emily Rogers. Or eurogamers Ps4Pro leak was leaked before on reddit and gaf. The chinese foxconn worker who described the switch by weight and height and so on. Leaks doesnt mean just numbers. Numbers are Published so or so from NPD. I can wait 7 days longer for the official release. NPD numbers are not huge leaks sorry. Thats just getting 7 days earlier. 

Wasn't emily rogers proven to be a hack? Plus, the leaks were never of big magnitudes anyway. The NX rumours started with Eurogamer, not on GAF. Kotaku leaked the PS4 Pro first. The Chinese foxconn nx details were regurgited by GAF from a Chinese forum (was it baidu?). So, really GAF hasn't had any insider for a long time now.

Oh, don't worry - this site is nothing but a Nintendo and sales community.



Neogaf had some gruesome members, not all are welcome for sure. I am not sad they closed the site there was a to high tollerance for everything that shouldn't be tollerated.
