Even I think self-driving cars are still 20 years out, AI is nowhere, really NOWHERE near what is needed. And cars don't have super computers yet either....

How about commercial vehicles, like trucks?
Bud's already done some deliveries with it. It's PR now, but still proof of concept.

Ok so we get to see some art assets (which look good), but are we looking at a Planet Coaster/Theme Park type game or what?

That was my thought: engine looks great, but where's the gameplay? Where are the saddles and the mounts for .50 Brownings and 40mm Bofors ? Will we be able to fully armor the dinos, or just the "turrets" that we ride in? Will my dino be able to level up and gain special abilities, like laser eyes or fire-breathing?

Inquiring minds...

Dino-Riders: The Game!
How has no one licensed that, actually? I wonder if people try; I'd guess many.

What could we possibly dispute? You said "didn't stop the critics from complaining that it was terrible because it was full of white males" about a movie that's sitting at 89% on Rotten Tomatoes.

In what world is a movie sitting at 89% one that critics called terrible?

Only in the world of a basement dweller that spends all day reading T_D and KiA, two sites also full of basement dwellers that don't interact with the rest of humanity on any kind of basis.

Can MA show me one game journalist connecting the Vegas shooting to video game violence? Just one?

No?

Then it's just more bleating from a guy that tries to make everything about his own pet concerns. The best is still how he claims he'll likely need to be on disability, yet also whines about "libtards taking government handouts."

Sure Rick, violent media explains the daily mass-murders in the US not sensible gun-control laws 'cause the rest of the world has the exact same problem...oh wait!
Well those 'daily mass-murders' only happen in a few places. Seems to me the US doesn't have a gun problem, they have two problems. One is a mental health issue, like many western countries and they have a decaying inner-city problem. Canada is starting to see the same problems that the US has in our large inner-cities. And like the US it's causes are similar.

Rick is an idiot, just like Hillary Clinton, Liberman, Gore, and so on tried to push the same thing. The only difference is, in today's game media those game journos are likely going "rick is rite!" Instead of calling bullshit, bullshit.

Only you bring a discussion about gun violence to game journalism.

Is your world that small? Do you ever leave the basement?

You learn a lot about a man by his decision to say "rheeeee."

You learn that he's socially maladjusted, and likely has no one close in his work or professional life. You learn that he likely spends all his time in the dark. You learn that he doesn't like himself, and probably thinks it's because he's so smart that neither he nor anyone else likes him. You learn he's not actually that smart, but intelligence is the only thing he has any confidence in. You learn that he ironically calls himself "deplorable" without realizing that most everyone finds him to be such.

And you learn he's beyond being triggered and offended.

Guys! IT IS HAPPENING! I got a mail saying that THE GAME Alpha 3.0 has been released to some alien race (or mad investors?) called evocati. We all knew it would happen!!! Another huge, huge step forward to beta! Beta coming to the Evocati (and maybe to peons on Earth) in approximately 2027 - date could shift, though, I think the gaming god behind THE GAME has said that they will add RTS, MOBA, and Submarine Chess Karate to the game, so 2037 might be a better estimated date of delivery of the beta. Cheers!

I had to Google this, because I thought it was a reference to Elon Musk claiming we're all emulated on a computer, and you were making a joke claiming a new version is coming.

A video. Not an article, not a study, a video. By crackpots.

You do little to dissuade the notion that your entire belief system revolves around how little known, and unreliable, and unchecked, the source is. Nearly every belief you give us, whether political, social, or scientific, can be summed up as thriving in sketchy YouTube channels and dead everywhere else.

Do you not get that you're a conspiracy theorist?

There are people offended enough here to keep talking about it, and MA seems really offended by something as he keeps talking about it.

For the record, KiA is probably the low point of the internet. Impotent incels lashing out in any direction because it's the only thing they feel they have power about in their lives.

What does it say about you when you ruthlessly ridicule and attack people who say things that you disagree with?




It may mean I'm a jerk, or it may mean what they believe is utterly ridiculous and supported not by a single fact but their desperate belief that there's a shadow conspiracy trying to alter everything they're told.

Musk is a big ideas man. He does not bother himself with details, like the island is already essentially bankrupt and like multiple people have mentioned the distribution system must be rebuilt. Not to mention the corrupt public officials that have blocked so much of the rebuild.

Good luck with that Elon.

More like a big con man...;) I've been amazed to see Musk "coming up" with idea after idea taken straight from 1950's and 60's "B" sci-fi...;) And it's all to pitch for more government loan guarantees...Musk is just the resident version of Solyndra who unfortunately won't go away...;) Just more fallout from the Obama administration's nuking of America.

Look, another guy that believes electricity powers the sun!

Holy crap our world is descending into leftist progressive PC hell.

Who cares if your game is offensive! Release it and let the free market decide. "this game hurt my feelings"... give me a damn break.

Every one of you leftist antifa worshiping fools on this site are partially responsible for this garbage.


No one here is "antifa," and sorry if we offended your delicate sensibilities, snowflake.

"Community dividing" is right.

I mean, dividing the community when you release a map pack is one thing, but doing it at launch is another. I don't understand the logic of making season pass specific matchmaking room on day 1.

Well, I guess with prior CoDs it hardly mattered due to the size of the community. I don't think this game will have the 5 million concurrent players or whatever that the first 3 MW games did.

This article is further confirmation of the Electric Universe theory. The theory has a very different history of our solar system than what was told to us by consensus science. There are electric currents flowing in space and that is what powers the sun, not an internal nuclear furnace.

Do you just immediately believe anything you read without any critical thought or analysis? I'm pretty sure over the years I've heard most of the below from you:

The Earth is not round!
Aliens landed here and its a giant cover up!
9/11 was a giant hoax!
We never landed on the moon!
Elvis is alive!
Bigfoot is real!
The sun is powered by ELECTRIC CURRENTS!
And countless political conspiracies.

Is there any dumpster fire bullshit you won't immediately latch onto?

He did once say the 16th amendment wasn't ratified and therefore wasn't good law, and courts have therefore said some people didn't have to pay federal income tax. This is patently false - the amendment was properly ratified and courts have found against every single person that has argued otherwise (see: Wesley Snipes), but it also kind of makes LittleMe a Sovereign Citizen.

Sure, but that metaphor fails if you read the article, because the author is still really angry that there's no headphone jack, but saying Apple was right when it said that people would buy a phone without it.

At this point, I think there's no really good argument to not get a mirrored RAID setup for your HDDs. I say that without having one, but I'm nowhere near using all the space on my SSD, let alone my second SSD (which was the primary drive on my old PC), let alone on the HDD I have hooked up behind it.

I know everyone is different, but if I'm suddenly at the point where I have more space than I know what to do with, I'd imagine many people are, meaning the push for bigger drives is slowing and we should instead push for duplicated drives.

Verno wrote on Oct 5, 2017, 14:10:
I find it difficult to believe 7 million installed and played Fortnite, free weekend or not. I've seen popular Steam games with a lot more market penetration (who uses Epic's client again?) and advertising fail to put up those numbers over a longer period of time. Smells like a headline for the sake of PR.

I agree, but I also don't think they'd lie.
So, I think that 7M people did download. It's surprising, but I guess all of the complaints from PUBG devs kind of made people want to check it out more, knowing it was possibly a more polished and less serious take on PUBG.

I haven't played either, so I'm not trying to say one is better than the other (though I'd expect PUBG is better for most), but could imagine much of the fanbase checking this out.
