I wonder how much that chair cost, and if that could have been better spent towards the kickstarter.

Sadly they need a way to play it while sitting.

Also can you use mods with it?

Blue, in the past have you ever been fooled by one of these April Fool's articles? I could see it easily happening in the old days or with articles that aren't that weird. And along those lines, have you ever placed an article in the "April Fool's Roundup" and later found out it was real?

I'm pretty sure I've erred in both ways over the years, posting true stories in the joke roundups, and jokes in the news. I'd say I have a pretty good track record, but it's usually pretty easy to spot them.

And shhh, don't talk about the pink logo or it won't fool anyone if I break it out again!

I was about to say.... I refreshed and cleared my cache and I am not seeing the Bunny!

The whole Uber thing is kinda a pile of shit. Sure, the self-driving car didnít detect the woman, but that woman was 49 years old and still wasnít smart enough to check for oncoming traffic. She wasnít even looking up when she was hit.

So now people are all up in arms about self driving cars, but I donít see headlines every time a pedestrian is hit by a human behind the wheel, because thatíd be several times EVERY FUCKING DAY. Iím not saying the issue shouldnít be investigated, see WHY it didnít see her, but to shut down the program seems stupid. Also, settling with the womanís family seems dumb unless it was for VERY cheap...she was absolutely not supposed to be there. The car had every right to be. Iím assuming the settlement was just to keep the family from adding to the media circus.

Here are the issues with Uber. 1)cutting every corner including the lawsuit by Waymo. 2)not sure if the video from the vehicle was altered to be darker then the actual street. 3) Uber cutting back on Self Driver people in the car from 2 to 1, even with major feedback not to do it. 4) Uber is just a scummy company and needs to go away.
The reason you're seeing this in the headlines is just like Tesla was when their car didnt detect the Semi trailer (a rare fluke), but this was just someone crossing the road. The Question that needs to be asked is... if the human didn't stop the car, would have the car stopped and sent a "something bad has happened" signal to the controler/EMS/whoever is monitoring the car?
If the car doesn't detect someone going across the street, how will it interact with people at a crosswalk? And I'm not just talking about a Stop sign Red/Yellow/Green crosswalk. We have a parking lot across the street (which has over 200+ tractor trailers on it daily) with rumble strips about 50 yards before it on both sides, and a giant flashing crosswalk sign. Sadly last year a driver wasn't paying attention and a fellow employee with hit by a fully loaded cement truck doing 40mph, and was killed.
If a self-driving car can't even do basic functions then it shouldn't be on the road period.

Good Concept, poor execution of the 1st, and the 2nd wasn't even even decent enough to play more then an hour in the Beta they are currently running.

Pass.

If it's staying in NYC i'd like to see a large and detailed Central Park area.
I'd like it to compete with Destiny, so vehicular travel of some sort, possibly other cities? London and Tokyo would be great.

Always wanted to see Central Park, pretty sad that never made it.

I doubt we'll see vehicles, as the engine is very tuned for walking/running speed. Compare it with a Ubi engine like the one in Watch Dogs 2 that's built for fast texture streaming when zipping around a city, the visual fidelity at any one moment is still beautiful, but far lower than The Div.

Word.

Same engine (also the same engine used for Ghost Recon). But for what they make up in land wise, they loose detail wise (look at all the objects on the streets of New York vs Bolivia).

Deep Rock Galactic looks pretty cool. Anyone playing it?

Glad Into the Breach is selling well. I got my copy on GoG though.

It's a fun game (not as much fun as Sea of Thieves) but pretty solid.

From what I have seen/read about Cuphead it's the best anti-anxiety medication you can get with or without a prescription to play the game and not throw the controller through the TV/Wall/Family/Pets.

Jesus invented time? That's a new one. How old do you think the world is?

No. Jehovah God created time, remember as a construct, after creating Jesus. From the moment of Jesus' "birth," time moved forward, and measured events in the universe and upon the earth. Even Jehovah God himself follows a schedule. An example of this is found in a common statement by Jesus, "Concerning that day and hour nobody knows, neither the angels of the heavens nor the Son, but only the Father." (Matthew 24:36) Perhaps some form of time existed before Jesus. I do not know, but what I can say is when it started, according to an extrapolation of what the Bible says.

According to proven scientific methods the earth is around 4 billion years old. The universe is around 14 billion; just in case you would like to know how old Jesus is.


Jesus the really crappy Avenger with food powers.

Be sure to grab the nvidia drivers... seemed to make a huge difference for me (unlike the Benchmark, without drivers on my 1070 I would get 12 fps less than I do now, strange. Still not getting to 60 at 1440p on MAX though

That's like saying "I have a Ferrari Cup Holder, yet my Big Wheel only does 10mph".
