Game still needs at least a year of patching and several Foundation sized free expansions before I'd recommend at any price.

I have a year and $15.

Can't happen soon enough, if you ask me. But equally I am worried that such a system will have problems in winter and the twilight weather between 0C where you can never fully predict whether it's just really foggy or slippery as fuck because nature decided to fuck THAT corner in particular.

I get Cutter's point and agree with it in general, but as your worry points, what I'm getting at is the backlash of court of public opinion when it does go wrong and how that will snowball quickly. That basically someone lost a life by putting total faith in code, they didn't have a chance to make a difference themselves, family will feel they could have made a difference. I'm probably not explaining this all that well, but I think when some of these happen the backlash rightfully or wrongly, will be legendary. Even if by the statistics it is better than humans overall, just saying when it takes you out of the equation and something bad happens, human nature is going to say "I could have made a difference". Perhaps when conditions get poor enough, auto-pilot doesn't work, if so Industry is screwed, they couldn't rely on the tech, just have a human driver for bad days? Right.

Obviously yes I'd love something better, but I've now totally accepted that brake and lane assist is a major step forward and enough for me at least at this time. I'm hoping I own one come spring, the brake assist being the biggy, that moment when you look elsewhere and the person in front of you imperfectly brakes hard unexpectedly, that's the situation I see most often when I drive, that potential mistake right there.

The rest is still a bit to sci-fi in the same line as mass drone delivery. I do give us credit though, it has come a long way, is not only being discussed but things are really happening. I'm not a total no here at all, but some situations have me scratching how they'll be handled.

Michigan Transportation Director Kirk Steudle concedes that there will be crashes and probably a fatality involving autonomous cars.
But they get to test in snow so that makes it all better. Lawsuits in 3-2-1

It does make me wonder how all this is going to work with such unpredictable weather and outcomes. I get it we make plenty of mistakes, but when you rely on systems, it seems liability shuffles to mfg vs driver. The backlash is going to be legendary. Could be wrong.

I'm not sitting around for the killer app, there is product out there and it keeps improving. I'm sitting around for version 2 at 1/2 the cost. This is how consumer electronics are supposed to work... well if you are serious about it being a big thing. $200 controllers are not good value either. If they feel they can't take a bit of a hit early on they may find there isn't a later on.

I also did notice and liked that you had "bottom tier" on top and bottom, I actually found it fitting.

Yeah I like the person that thinks all the mainstream is all wrong and that national enquirer stuff is now correct. Obviously something went sideways with such individuals. To really think that, that has to be a miserable life, a meglo's life, one big setup against you and only you.

Yeah, I realized I had it set up wrong, then brainfarted even further. At least it was a funny mistake.

I agree that it's frightening that some people think all the legitimate news outlets are bad. None of them are perfect, but none of them are awful. Typically, the ones that think CNN or the WSJ orThe New York Times are always wrong (and, admittedly, CNN is "wrong" way more frequently now than it was a decade ago, as it focuses more heavily on what people tune in to [editorials] and less on just reporting what happens) are the same ones that think Russia Today, Alex Jones, Prison Planet, and the like are the only "real" sources.

Yep it is so upside down right now, I'm unsure what to do about it. If a Dem had any tie whatsoever with Russia the Commie word comes out right now, but I've heard more about Russia being ok under the new regime and it goes without question from their followers. What gives? They still blast Dems for Commie China deals as if rep corp types didn't eat that up... Nothing is adding up right now. It does seem we are being driven by fear, which that doesn't surprise, we haven't been the "Home of the brave" for sometime.

It is funny what sticks we us, I had a large impression while having some friends out from GA 2 years ago, the wife of a couple (60's) seriously lives in fear of terrorism, as if it is imminent, it only tells me how well Fox News works on people. I don't like it, who does? But I can't say I wake up worrying about it.

Will this shit crash my computer or should I keep using months old nvidia drivers...

Never update your drivers until some game actively starts having issues. Updating every time Nvidia randomly throws out some cobbled-together code releases a new driver is begging to get hit with major issues.

I live by the first one, I can't say the second never happens, but it is rare. I love these threads though, always someone(s) that have major systems issues, clock work. Almost never have one over here, but see #1, don't update all that often.

WaltC is exactly what I mean when I say some people think "Fake news" is "news I don't like" rather than actual news fabricated solely for clicks.

Seems that way. I also did notice and liked that you had "bottom tier" on top and bottom, I actually found it fitting.

I don't get why both Nvidia and Intel are so far ahead in technology cycles either. It seems for every iteration either company does, AMD/ATI do 1 less. And that obviously leads to disaster. ;(

And I want competition! I still use a AMD cpu, but the upgrade is looming ever closer, and it doesn't look like AMD is even decent in the competition for upgrade paths...

Disaster for who? Even if AMD weren't competition, doing some math a while back this round of NVidia cards was as good as they've had in a long long time, performance boost between models 9xx and 10xx.

Conservative Views are not stupid.

Lower taxes, Fewer regulations, Free and Open Economy, Freedom of speech and individuality, Free Market solutions to problems, strong defense. Are the basics of Conservatism.

Freedom of speech? The prez seems pretty thin skinned and would like to take just a little speech away I hear.

Freedom of individuality. Laugh, right. You can't see your party for what it is.

Fewer Regulations - means cutting corners to me in many cases, however there is a balance I would agree to that.

Lower Taxes, how low? You need takes, conservatives always talk lower, but they have raised plenty of taxes themsevles. Taxes are necessary, can there be too much? Yes. But there can be too little to.

Free and Open economy - Prez is trying to put us in a silo which wouldn't be open and sure he'd like free out, but wants to tax the shit in. That said, I think both parties in general are for free and open economy, I really haven't seen libs stopping business from making money, stock market always seems to do better with a lib in the white house.

Free market solutions to problems. Here is something I agree with. That said sometimes they should be and sometimes they should be gov't controlled. Both parties I think believe that, however I will agree they slant the opposite way from one another.

Strong Defense. We have had a strong defense for a long time now that spans both parties. The amount we put into our military under either party is historical. I do agree Conserves are more, but a liberal run America is far from weak.

Pray to the baby Jesus we won't have to pick flowers/everything like DA:I. If I have to watch that excruciatingly slow bend-over-pick-up animation one more time I'm most likely going to give this a pass. Minor annoyances that become huge over the course of a game far too long for its variety of content.

Yeah there was a mod for that, got rid of animation, immediate pick up. I saved a 1/2 year of my life I feel. Some though my call that dumbing down, I call it playing smart.

Having said all that, I do wonder why MMO's give players a fully leveled up character as an option when they release an expansion?

There's actually one coming out that does exactly this. I don't know the details, or the name, unfortunately. Just saw it mentioned on one of the forums I frequent.

The reason is for complaints we are stating here. Feel lost and behind. Thinking old content is boring content or abandoned content. Here we'll put you right out in front again where there are players and new cooler stuff. Please play my game!

Yeah when this game started doing chapters, they took a very strong turn having a single player mmo (oxy-MORON) or one so easy when grouping because it was only balanced for one, it was ultra-boring.

It feels like every MMO, no matter what they say, boil down to the same formula, no matter what genre they're in.

And that is the one I don't like the most, everything has to be too generic to keep everyone in check, which in my opinion is a big ass fun sucker outer. Since there are people that will play every day for 8 hours per, they have to keep control of people like that, which makes avg players feel even more controlled and then they want to keep you forever in a day in that grind to who knows where it really is going... That is why I am bullish on player run server games (build/survival), you can mod to inject something different into them, you can control who plays and simply put don't have to feel nickle/dime'd. And no matter how much one wants to do something different from the start, it magically comes right back in to more of the same overall. Just something about them, they are bound and can't break free in a exciting fashion.

Jumped back in to this after a year or so of not looking at it. Had no fucking clue what I was doing or how it worked. The biggest problem I have returning to games like this, especially F2P MMOs, is all the shit in my bags. And since it's F2P, bag space is extremely limited while they give you a whole ton of shit to fill your bags. The easy solution is to delete/sell everything. Instead I just quit. These games really need a "hey, welcome back, let's do a tutorial".

And give me bigger bags, dammit.

+1. All the combining/collecting items and different currencies needed to buy things, I already have a job. I get why they do it for those that play everyday forever, but those that would rather be in/out/return, ass pain. One of the top flaws with the standard mmo formula. This one was fair in story, but I didn't care for the combat model, too simplistic, it was improved with getting a char from 1 to max., I agree.

Like the idea of the 70's sound track from the movie, but the songs are so cheese, much cooler 70's songs. One may say "that's the point", I counter with my point is choose the cooler songs. Oh well.

I already own NWN2 Platinum on Steam, but thanks.

I just picked up Ghost of a Tale on GOG. It's a really rather charming and endearing game. I quite recommend it. Particularly if you've ever read and enjoyed graphic novels like Mouse Guard.


Wait you just bought an EA Game? The hypocrisy!
