3. Re: WASD Oct 18, 2018, 22:51 Quboid
 
It was only when I was getting my ass handed to me by mousers in Qtest that I finally learnt to use it. IIRC the mouse also moved you forwards and back in Doom, which made it awkward for me.

I used a similar layout, RMB for forward, until some game came along that couldn't rebind WASD so I just decided to get used to that so most games wouldn't need everything re-bound.

All I want is a Railroad Tycoon game with realistic graphics.

Transport Fever is quite well regarded: https://store.steampowered.com/app/446800/Transport_Fever/

AI doesn't exist. If said bias existed it was because of the variables it was programed with and nothing more.

Yes, because it's impossible to have a computer that iterates on its own code according to some set of goals and might come to unanticipated results. Humans are created by GOD and powered by MAGIC that can't be put into a machine!

How dense are you? The bias was coded in to begin with. The machine does not "think" for itself. That would be magic. Do even grasp the biological concept of how thought even works?

What do you think the A in AI means?

I love doctor who but this season is not my cup of tea. I think the rating is very high because people are just curious to see the change. We'll see if the viewership stand the test of time.

That's why I watched it. New doctor, new show runner, and a positive reaction (particularly from NerdCubed, who I always enjoy). I'm sure many others are in the same boat, and there will have been a lot of tedious people watching desperate for Jodie Whittaker to be either brilliant or awful. I liked her, but I couldn't say if she's true to the character (in so much as different regenerations are the same character).

I'm going to take it one episode at a time. It was good enough for me to want to watch the next one, but I'll probably lose interest pretty soon.

21. Doctor Who Oct 9, 2018, 17:20 Quboid
 
Did anyone watch Doctor Who? There's one thing I don't understand (spoilers): Why was the doctor there? Of all the basically infinite places and times she could appear, why was it on the exact place on earth that is being attacked?

I'm still livid that you didn't post a link to my Kingpin fan site. KIA (or was it KAI?) could have been the next big thing.

Thanks for the decades, Blue.

Hmm, I wonder if they are shutting down the private/corporate Google+ setups too...

It will still be available to "enterprise" users, if that's what you mean?

"The methodology used across all GfK Chart-Track's services is continuous quantitative retail research. GfK Chart-Track reports are based on retail/web sales where the data is captured electronically each day via EPoS systems."

They don't track digital.

I thought that's what they meant by "web sales". Is that people ordering the discs online?

What the hell is up with the UK and their Sims fetish?

My thought is that a large number of women play it, and with 300 days of rain a year, games are a fun indoor activity.

65 dry days? That was a good year.

I presume their data is skewed. Maybe they get Origin's sales figures but not Steam's.

for some reason I'm particularly ornery before I get out of bed. 99% of my regrettable posts come when I pick up the phone before my alarm goes off. Bad habit I know I should correct...

Similar for me, I'm unwell and I got 3 hours sleep over the weekend so posting at 6:30am after that is probably not the best idea either. I don't regret what I said but I certainly don't begrudge Blue stepping in.

You win the "Best Sig" category.

It's petty and it proves absolutely nothing, but it made me laugh and that's important thing.

None of the political parties are trustworthy. It's going to get screwed up at some point. Even if it's not on paper. If a Rep doesn't do it then a Dem will.

True. One is objectively considerably worse than the other but there are no saints in politics.

I presume NamecaF though I was asking which party NotOneOfUs was referring to, which would indeed be missing the point. I wasn't, I was asking who in this thread he was referring to.

Hmm, I thought I read those -- I don't recall them being unusually bad. Either another failure of my memory or I'm even more desensitized than I realized...

It wasn't exactly high brow, the problem was probably more the tone of the whole conversation than any specific post. I know mine was pretty borderline, I don't regret it but it's no big loss either.

Who are you referring to?

Woosh!

Sorry RedEye9, but somebody has to take care of those poor, suffering, multi-billion dollar international corporations!

lol


That fact that this comes from liberals is a huge red flag right off the bat. These days, nothing trustworthy comes from them. Like usual, they mask it as something good, right and fair to the people - but it's actually a wolf-in-sheep's-clothing kind of situation (like many other popular things the libs do).

These kinds of laws are not needed. Just look at how the internet exploded and how it changed peoples lives before net nutrality took place. All of the innovation and reshaping of how the world works all happened before those laws. They are not needed at all. They are nothing but a smokescreen to protect the rich and their monopolies for the sake of profit at any cost.

Cowardly idiots like you are why the US is turning into a banana republic.

What's the over/under until he gets banned. I say he'll never reach 500 posts.
I dunno. At the rate he's going, he may reach that figure in this thread alone.
And he's gone.

It's a shame. He's obviously quite intelligent, and his good posts are really good.

He's a pathetic moron and I'm glad to be rid of him. Hopefully a few others will follow.
