Yeah well that could be a problem if an when an AI ever actually exists which is likely never.

I guess it depends on how you define AI. Certainly an automated learning tool could wreak havoc even if (especially if) it lacked consciousness.

I don't think the horse was going quite that fast, certainly not when it got to her. But that's not nearly as stupid as the cyclist charging in to "diffuse the situation" -- unless perhaps it was his backpack to begin with. He did pay a bit of price for it though. All in all, an Out of the Blue filled with stupidity it appears.
LoL so true. That guy is either an idiot, or set the whole thing up Leroy Jenkins style.

You all haven't figured out the husband doesn't *need* his wife to unlock the car, he *wants* her to unlocked the car. Because he thinks it's cool.
I'm not sure which would be worse -- too stupid to realize he could do it, or so stupid as to ask his wife who he knows is "in space" to do it because he thought it was cool.

A lot of revisionist history here... Unreal wasn't very good. I do agree the opening was pretty good. But Half-Life came out a few months later and buried it.

And UT didn't get good until UT3, which was great.

Unreal was just okay, but the original UT was fantastic. So many great modes and gameplay mechanics pioneered in that game.

I still fire it up occasionally to play Facing Worlds instagib or Hall of Giants CTF or one of the Assault levels.

GameFly: "Rent Over 9000 Games & Movies." It looks like EA is going all-in for their Software-as-a-Service plan. I do know that SAAS works for apps like Adobe Cloud. Maybe it'll work for video games. My personal opinion is "renting" video games feels wrong; I prefer ownership. Not sure how EA is going to change a decade's old mindset. Maybe that's it. They're targeting the younger generation who can be conditioned to be more accepting of renting video games.
We've had subscription based games for years. That's similar.

Sure with console games. Not with PC games. At least not at the same level as renting console games.

I was actually referring to things like WoW, which had 12M players at peak. It's a world famous game that people payed monthly for.

Wooo The Expanse. Some of the best scifi on TV in years and years.

Probably the best since BSG, before it jumped the shark in the fourth season.

I think it's actually substantially better than BSG.... for one, realistic space combat.

Also it's not a shitty soap opera. And the writers actually know where the story is going.

Right, thus my fourth season caveat.

Really? BSG space combat had Newtonian physics. And I have a few nits to pick with some of the battles in The Expanse.

For sure, but I believe it has more to do with marketing the game to a wider audience than SJW pandering. It's a smart business move to make it appeal to more people.

Is it though? Most people have had enough of the PC bullshit. The silent majority is pissed off and not staying silent anymore. This is manifesting itself the world over. Look at most of the recent elections in Europe where it's all starting to go hard right. Even here after 15 years of Liberal misrule it looks like they're going to get crushed - and rightfully so - this June. I suppose we'll see.

Oh come on Cutter... How in the hell is this "PC". It's a Battlefield game. Would it be less "PC" for a woman soldier to be in a "modern" shooty-shooty game?

There are more 'historical' WW2 games anyways:

Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad
Rising Storm
Hell Let Loose
Post Scriptum

The other thing is that women fighting in WW2 isn't even historically inaccurate. Here's a bunch of Soviet women. Check out the scope on her Mosin M1891. And here's a French partisan, dressed to the nines and wielding a Schmeisser MP40.

If Apple made a car, you'd have to return it to Apple to get it repaired...

And an oil change would cost $300. Also, all the parts would be glued together, not bolted.

That trailer is a chaotic mess. So, this is straight up WW2? Strange that all the soldiers were irregulars.

I was hoping that this might be some kind of alternate history, but looks like not the case.

Bummer that they chose WW2 when so many other interesting settings exist out there.

Anyone watch the BF V trailer?

Definitely WW2, but maybe an alternate history? The trailer features British partisans suggesting the UK gets invaded. Also has V1 rockets, which were used mainly against the UK.

MH370 not deliberately crashed by pilot, say investigators.

Yeah, that story the other day that the pilot flew for 7 hours before crashing the plane deliberately made no sense.

I thought this story was funny:

New York parents win legal battle to evict son, 30

They also gave him $1,100 (819) to leave, according to one letter, which suggested he sell his some belongings including a broken down Volkswagen Passat.

"I had to spend it and I'm not sorry about it," he added, telling other local media that it went towards "expenses".

In court he acknowledged he has never contributed to household chores.

Sounds like a real winner.

Just try and roll a Tesla model X over

All those batteries in the floor give the car a very low center of gravity.

Haha. I have a wife but no kids yet. God knows how I'll find time to game once those kids come along, assuming they do, because I already feel like it takes forever to finish something and big open RPGs take up months of my gaming time.

Granted I watch a lot of movies too.
Dude, you gotta stop gaming long enough to make them kids. It's a challenge...
