This is a major issue, right? After all, our economies are based entirely on conspicuous consumption. So if estimates are correct that AI and robots can replace the vast majority of the workforce than what drives the economy? A universal guaranteed income is the bare minimum. Certainly not what would keep our lifestyle - as we're accustomed to it - happily chugging along. Short of having matter replicators a la Star Trek that eliminates the need for a consumption based economy this will likely end very badly, i.e. WWIII. Well, as the Chinese curse goes, may you live in interesting times.

There will always be someone who has to work on the machines that do the work though. Luckily I'm in that line of work now so I should be safe.

But i still can't change my account name from my old email address that I don't use any more.

It used to be the case that in order to do that you had to contact Steam support. I don't envy you; Steam support sucks.

FYI - I have the latest drivers with no Geforce Experience and I don't see any of the telemetry stuff running.

EDIT - NM, I had 375.63, 375.70 DOES include the Telemetry with a driver + PhysX only install.

For what it's worth...

From what I've been hearing there are a whole bunch of quality voice actors who aren't in the union. Can anyone verify this? If true it would seem that companies could just hire outside of the union, which would kind of take the teeth out of the union, wouldn't it? Also, I would think that if jobs were so hard to come by isn't it likely a union member would cross the picket line to take a job if offered?

It's a Trump presidency simulator!






Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

A closer analogy would be a Hillary presidency. I forgive your partisan viewpoint as you must be one of Hill's uninformed and complacent sheep.

People seem to forget that Trump and his followers are now the revolutionaries. It isn't 1968 people. Republicans, Trump, anyone who doesn't tow the liberal party line are now anarchists, counter-culture, outside the main stream. It is Hillary who must crush that dissent and have her followers inform on it.

(queue The More You Know)

Actually I despise Hillary, Trump, and this whole election. I'm not voting. I don't care who wins - things are going to shit regardless.

Just happened to install this and start playing this game this week. I really like it. It is Left 4 Dead in the Warhammer fantasy universe with loot, which I love. I am having a great time with it. I have had very good experiences with the random groups I've joined; everyone seems to work together for the most part.

People REALLY need to stop buying these Season Passes. It's showing incredible faith in companies who have done nothing to earn such faith; quite the opposite really.

If you live in Myanmar you have bigger problems to worry about than video games.

Considering our current racial tensions, rampant inner city crime and poverty, stagnant wages, sky-rocketing health care costs, mass shootings out the ass, and our coming election here in the U.S. where we will end up with a corrupt shyster no matter who wins, it could be argued that we too have bigger things to worry about than videogames. But to me that's all the more reason we need a form of escapism.

The technology, particularly the Microsoft surface, looks interesting but to say that it is "saving the PC" seems a bit dubious.

News Comments > Windows 10 Adds Offline Gaming
13. Re: Windows 10 Adds Offline Gaming Oct 29, 2016, 15:58 Prez
 
My suspicion is that Microsoft is using the fact that there was considerable opposition to Steam and Origin that later subsided as those platforms improved tremendously as a model as to why they are stubbornly sticking to their guns on this. The problem with this is that MS apparently still has no clue how to serve the PC audience.

I had Windows 10 until I reformatted and reinstalled Windows 8.1 and I am in no hurry to go back to 10. I want to play Gears 4 but not enough to use Windows 10 or the godawful Winstore.
