I'm still having trouble with the Westworld after two episodes. I don't care for any of the characters because it's basically just GTA5 with androids instead of being only virtual.

So even though they play evil music when Ed Harris does his thing, it's no different than me running over the NPCs in GTA5.

It's not like they are actual conscious beings like Data from Star Trek.


Or have I completely missed something?


yeah, pretty much the entire transhumanist subtext. gta had about as much philosophy as a kick to the balls. westworld is (hopefully and so far) something far, far greater.

Westworld episode 2 thoughts:

It really is feeling like a game, in a good way. Especially the end, where a team pitches a new area/expansion, complete with logo. First thought was "This is just like WOW!"

So it looks like, after Delores passes it to Maeve, that it's a code word/phrase that passes the virus? So the obvious question is who put that in there?

What exactly is Dr Ford building???? Looks like a church?

Nice to see Cullen as more than a two dimensional character (IE she actually shows affection to someone).




i love the production values, but they could still fuck it up with poor writing. all the pretty visuals don't mean a damn thing if they leave jj abrams level plot holes in it. the fact that abrams is involved does not give me hope. still, it hasn't let me down. yet.

The Bible's view and the belief of millions are that humans have the capacity to live much longer than 115 years. The Bible states we have the capacity to live forever and were designed to do just that. It even says in Ecclesiastes 3:11 that God "has even put eternity in their heart," which explains why so many people believe they can live forever today. Unfortunately, inherited Adamic sin mars our ability to do so. (Romans 5:12) The good news is this miserable condition will soon be expunged. (Romans 6:23; Revelation 21:4) After that, age, cellular degradation, and a multitude of other infirmities will no longer have a stranglehold on our lives. We will, in effect, have perpetual lifespans.

I know many of you don't hold these views. I would kindly ask that you be tolerant of a point of view you don't have.

Humans will live hundreds of years in the future. There are already examples of longevity in nature: trees that live 1000s of years, animals that live 100s of years. We already understand many of the mechanisms to make this occur, even if we yet don't have the technology to implement it. It raises all kinds of moral questions, such as the freedom to reproduce, and how to manage essentially immortal populations. Some movies have tried to address this, like In Time.

And if science doesn't work, there's always ritual hobbit sacrifice and unspeakable dark magic. Refreshing and wholesome!

i prefer the lawful good route, and just have sex with an elf princess XD

Oh it is on HBO. My cable tried to entice me for a free month, far TOO much money for a few good shows they have.

I am not impressed with any of their shows including Game of Thrones.

yeah i would gladly pay for hbo if it was like $10 a month, but $20 is way excessive for one channel. imagine if you had to pay $20 for every channel. yeeesh.

I seriously doubt she even remotely understands what that really means. Everytime we hear this bullshit from her it really means 'I want more than my 15 minutes! Give me more money for doing nothing!'


Even though I respect what she (poorly) is trying to do, it's hard to get past this aspect of things. She loves attention. Still, she didn't deserve the hate she got.

i think you're mistaking what she's trying to do. she isn't trying to bring any awareness to feminism in gaming - she's just trying to make money by selling a thin veneer of social outrage. she's not and never has been a gamer and there's a video where she admits it. she doesn't know the first thing about real gaming.

to be clear, i don't believe she gives two fucks about feminist roles in gaming, she's just conning a bunch of naive millennials into giving her money by any means necessary.

I nearly got into a fist fight at Costco recently over a shopping cart ding, not super proud of it. My GF was there to calm me down and probably saved me from a court appearance. Sometimes that testosterone just gets going and you forget its just a big hunk of plastic/metal, not worth the hassle even if its some asshole ticking off the "life aint fair" box for you that day.

i feel you bro. it's the principle of the thing. you can't let that shit go cuz it just reinforces their sociopathic behavior and you want to be able to put up some kind of roadblock for it.

Kevin Smith was wrong about one thing, he can be a better husband than johnny depp. I'm not aware of Smith beating up his wife. Sad, I was a huge fan of depp, pre-domestic violence depp.

are you sure he did it? seems really out of character. and yes i saw the 'throwing champagne glass' video. it was bullshit he didn't throw it at her.

Google should definitely grant those requests. I want to see WB try and appeal their own mistake and end up in a legal battle with itself.

What a farce.

my thoughts exactly. '...if you can't be bothered to check your own list, we can't either.'

She was the PTA mom everyone knew. Who would want to harm her?

The schadenfreude is strong with this one.

man that was such a bizarre story, like, what is wrong with someone that they would risk an opulent life in the 'burbs in the name of petty revenge.

and, as a frequent visitor of irvine, it really is lowkey creepy urbanism as fuck.

The whole Windows 10 debacle just keeps getting better. Microsoft is the worst thing to ever happen to the PC gaming.

Fixed that for ya.

It does seem as though MS is being extra shitty lately. The heavy handed upgrade to 10 campaign, the on-going problems with windows update for vista/7/8, and continued efforts to try and force people into the cortana, xbox, MS experience that nobody asked for or wants. I'm kind of surprised I don't see more tech article calling them out. Even the outrage over the 10 upgrade campaigned seemed tame considering they resorted to out right trickery to get people to update.

On the topic of the scientifically proven happiness thing, that was a major reason for not moving out of my apartment recently. My daily commute is only 15 minutes, and while it's still full of morons who shouldn't be driving, it's only 15 minutes of morons who shouldn't be driving.

seriously, i think it's surprisingly illuminating how much you can tell about a person by the way they drive, and if you drive more than, say, a mile a day, you will unfailingly run into some asshole who drives like the worst humanity has to offer. every. god damn. day.

what really grinds my gears is the obliviously selfish types, who don't give a fuck about the rules of the road and do what they want no matter what. 55 in a 65 zone in the fast lane of a 4 lane highway with 10 cars lined up behind you? don't give a fuck. nobody in front or behind me for a quarter mile, and dude could wait the extra 2 seconds to let me pass before merging? don't give a fuck. people really suck on the road.

Hah, like the WASD standard is something to be proud of. ESDF is far superior, you have much quicker and easier access to other hotkeys and your hand rests in a better position. But it's like the Imperial vs Metric system argument. So many people already used WASD, so they just stuck to it, because changing was too hard.

I genuinely don't understand the ESDF argument. I mean, if you prefer ESDF, whatever of course, but why is it supposedly so much quicker and easier access? It's still the same keys. For most normal sized people, they're all within easy reach of your left hand. What does it matter where it "rests?" (so to speak).

you have more access to keys around your hand, esp. on your pinky side. for the longest time i was actually a GHJ-N player XD until i just couldn't be bothered to reconfigure the controls of every game anymore. but because of those days i still have a very dexterous pinky =)
