They are assboring!

It's sad that you kids don't know good games from bad games.

Username checks out. Shitty troll is shitty.

You seem to lack a brain or haven't hit puberty yet. Go and play your silly CoD and Witcher crap or go to bed. You don't seem to know any better.
Looking through your post history, you mention puberty an awful lot.
Which is ironic, given that your aggro stance and immediate aggression towards anyone that likes something you don't closely resembles an argument by 11 year olds during recess. It's like right out of that Mortal Kombat scene in Billy Madison.

At some point, you've got to learn that not every game is made for you. That people have different ideas of fun, and not every game is aimed at yours. Life is a lot easier when you see a game you dislike, or a movie, or a comic book, or whatever, and just shrug and realize it's made for a different audience.

Unfortunately, culture in 2018 seems to be largely wide groups of people struggling for the first time to accept that not everything is tailored to their tastes.

Every game should be CoD, BF, AC, FC, WoW, Destiny, or some variation. That's it.

FTL? Trash.
Darkest Dungeon? Rubbish.
Cuphead? Inartful.
Minecraft? Too blocky.
Terraria? Too pixelated.
Broforce? Derivative.
Rocket League? Unrealistic.
Gorogoa? Too artsy fartsy.
Machinarium? Too gray.
Star Citizen? A scam.

Okay, some may argue that last one.

I believe every single one of those were made by people who'd had experience in the industry. His #1 point is that if you aren't talented enough to get experience in the industry, you likely aren't talented enough to make a great game, and likely don't have the experience to be able to project manage a great game, therefore you shouldn't put your financial wellbeing in jeopardy.

He goes on to say you shouldn't get an expensive yet worthless degree in game design (100% accurate), and you shouldn't start big but learn fundamentals first.

All of this feels like pretty good advice. Anyone that's put money into a video game on Kickstarter can probably relate, too.

I would LOVE for a list that you can provide that tops Witcher 3. Give me at least a top 10. I'm talking credible mentions and not just, Oh yeah I had fun with this game so let me throw it out there.

We can know what kind of gamer mind you got with the list you can provide.

Thanks.

I think the best complaint about TW3 is the combat was probably slightly above average. It was a bit repetitive, and from what I gather, far beyond a game such as Dark Souls.

However, I haven't played Dark Souls and have zero interest in it. I wanted something more relaxed, with a hint of depth, as I explore a large and well populated world. TW3 gave me that.

Set in an epic world where magic exists but only women can use it.

WTF? Men and women could use channeling, they just had different styles and couldn't teach each other.

Yeah, but the women did all the work to learn to use the magic. The men just lazed about drinking mead and watching football.

I've never read the books, but from what I've read women can use it responsibly, but men get driven insane by using it, so men can technically use it, but by sacrificing their sanity.

Given that the rest is following the reborn Dragon or whathaveyou, sounds like it does have men using magic, just, you know, insanely.

Well the men would say that, sose to have an excuse to drink mead and watch football.

If you've ever seen me fold a fitted sheet, you'd understand why most of my exes were much happier doing it themselves. Worse, stuffing a duvet cover! Unfortunately, the one seemingly sticking is every bit as terrible at it as I am.

Self driving cars don't make sense to me, we should be putting resources into smart roads. You don't need crazy complex AI for a road to manage the cars on it and all of the variables that come with that. The problem is that once you've centralized this problem, all of those patents for autonomous cars are worthless. There's just too much money in the current flawed approach.

You still need driver AI in every vehicle to account for pedestrians, speed bumps, deer, balls, ice, snow, road work, etc. Even if the system had 0 human drivers.

Yeah, but in theory all the processing can be done by the central road network, right? The cars are just instruments and sensors. Or, to your point, it can just be for things such as deer and pedestrians.

I mostly agree with BIGtrouble77. A smartcar can react to what's immediately in front of it. A smart road can react to the entire system of automobiles. You mention road work or speed bumps. A smart road would know about that, and route cars appropriately. As we've seen in endless studies, traffic jams are routinely because one guy hits the brakes, probably because some asshole cut him off on the highway. He slams his brakes. The person behind him takes a split second to react and slams theirs harder. The person behind them takes a split second, as well, and slams harder. If you're in a helicopter, you see this travel backwards as a wave, where ultimately cars 5 miles back aren't slowing down but coming to a complete stop. For no reason at all. A smart road system, assuming all cars on it are smart and communicating with it, avoids this by knowing where every car is going at all times and routing them logically and rationally. No car makes an unintended move. When car needs to change lanes, the space opens up for him, the right amount of space, without slowing anyone (or worse, everyone!) down.

This is the dream. I do agree that it will be hard to make a reality. Ignoring security concerns, corporations will never let it happen. It would take a centralized system, either controlled by the government (socialism!) or by one corporation (monopoly!) Instead, each auto manufacturer wants their own branded AI system as a selling point.

Frankly, though, when we do get to AI cars, I almost see most auto manufacturers disappearing, as frequency of car purchases will decline and fleet sales will increase, meaning it will be a limited number of models needed.

Full disclosure. I'm related to Noah Webster. My love for words and sticking it to the man are hereditary.

What?!

A quick search shows at least a half dozen references to Merriam-Webster over the past 15 or so years, with nary a mention of this close, familial relationship. You've been propping up your 170 year dead relative all this time, on our dime, without full disclosures?!

Where's the journalistic integrity!?

Empty stadium simulation is going to be amazing.

Do you research anything, or just spew what Trump does?

The NFL is making more money than ever. Factually. Its attendance remains very strong outside of a few teams - the Redskins are absolutely faking attendance by buying their own seats, and those Chargers numbers are also inflated for the same reason. Both teams suffer because fans hate their billionaire owners.

Otherwise? The league is swimming in revenue. Viewership is down, but down less than virtually anything else on TV.

A 1080 still beats the 2070 and they are going for under $500 now. Nvidia's 20xx series is way overpriced. You have to be braindead or floating in money to buy a 20xx card. The 1080ti is still the best card on the market as you can get them for $600 and with that 3gb of extra memory, they own the 20xx series at the high graphics end.

None of this matches benchmarks I've seen, showing the 2070 and the 1080 about tied, the 2080 and the 1080ti about tied, and the 2080ti blowing the 1080ti away.

Yes, they're expensive, but what new tech isn't? If this isn't for you, wait it out. I wait out plenty of things. Intel releases something crazy, I wait until that tech comes down in price. It always does.

Not so fast. Actually, the 1080ti still beats the 2080ti in multiple benchmarks primarily because it has more memory. If you are running 4k, that extra memory is far more important than extra speed found in the 2080ti. As to the 2070 I very much doubt it will beat a 1080 and since 1080's are going for around $450 it is a nobrainer to buy a 1080 right now.

The 1080ti does not have more memory than the 2080ti. They both have 11GB, but the 2080ti has faster memory.

Seriously, have you actually looked at benchmarks? I haven't seen a single one where the 1080ti beats the 2080ti in a single game. I'm thinking, if you have the memory wrong, you haven't really read much, right? Each 20X0 has the same memory amount as the 10X0 version, only they're using GDDR6.

The Titan had 12GB, not 11GB, and I haven't seen any benchmarks of it losing to the 2080ti, either. And the 2080 is essentially neck and neck with the 1080ti. It's usually within 3fps, either above or below, winning as many as it loses - they ultimately find it 1% faster than the 1080ti, whereas the 2080ti is about 30% faster than the 1080ti. Given that the 2080 is only $75 more on Newegg, I'd almost definitely go with it were I to need a new card now. Were I to not need a new card, I'd absolutely wait at least one more gen.

In reality, I'd spend a long time trying to come up with something obscure, that would take anyone not me 10 minutes to figure out.

Off the top of my head, though:
The Guile-haired soldier from X-COM
A frigate, or a catapult, or the settler from the original Civ
The starting ship in FTL
Ivan from Jagged Alliance 2
A Knight from Civ 4

I could be talked into some more, like Simon Belmont from Castlevania 1, the thing from Clu Clu Land, something from The Witcher, the Hollow Knight, maybe something from Deus Ex.

Actually, I'd probably pick some random art hanging on the wall of a game. I think Dishonored had some cool shipwreck art. Some game I played recentlyish did.

Part of the thing is we can prove someone had sex, it's much harder to prove what they knew. We can do what they reasonably should know, but it'd be a hard defense to day you didn't think there was a chance a stupid 16 year old was a stupid 16 year old.
