Yeah I feel like we have been here before. Bulldozer is still fresh in people's minds. They should contact Anandtech to do internal benchmarks before making such claims.

It's a good thing gas cars never catch on fire, no wait.

1 Tesla fire post shield installation per 100 million miles driven.

Compared to:

1 traditional car fires per 20 millions miles average driven.

Still 5 times safer with the current, albeit limited, data.

Someday they'll have to stop making a fuss out of every incident, 1 traditional car catches fire every 17 hours in average and that's ONLY in the US.
What percent of ICE cars 3 years old or newer catch fire? That's the relevant cohort to compare to Tesla.

It's fine if they implement USB-C headphones, as long as they keep the 3mm jack.

Is it bad that I saw 'Tranny Video Diary' before actually really looking at the title?

I keep doing the same thing. I have to blink a few times to read it right. I guess they are just seared into my brain, transmissions that is. Sexy yet strong, transmissions are essential in converting that in and out pumping action into forward momentum so you can get somewhere in life.

Do the dungeons still reset if you have been away for 15 minutes or so? I hated having to clear out places again I had already finished.

I am really looking forward to "Seasons after fall". I have been looking forward to this game for such a long time now, seems like five or so years.

So, many many seasons you have been waiting.

I dunno about that. I've always been a firm believer in Panspermia - the theory that life originated via delivery of asteroids. It would sure explain things like the Mantis Shrimp.

So where did the life on the asteroids come from, and how did it come about? Panspermia doesn't say dick about the origin of life, it's just a theory about planet hopping primitive life hitching a ride from one place to another.

I don't think Cutter actually believes in Panspermia, he has just been waiting years to use it in a sentence.


Obviously the life would have evolved on A planet, just not this one. And with whatever accident occurred that sent all those asteroids hurtling through space to land on other worlds life would still evolved differently - although from the same point of origin - depending on what that particular galaxy and solar system are like. Hence the reason we're carbon based and not silicon based lifeforms. That makes much more sense than the crap shoot that guesses how life started here from nothing.


This planet has the best environment for life, and it doesn't require some shot in the dark to have "landed" here via panspermia. It originated here. Occam's razor dude.

C'mon, you know by law games like that have to be titled "Tea Simulator 2016."

Woman and dog pulled from sinking car in Louisiana flooding.

Bizarre. Why the hell was she still in the car? Also, maybe not a good idea to step on a floating car with a person inside.

How about titling it "Expectations vs. Bandwagoning a false narrative by cherry-picking a highly contrasting clip from a massively randomized game world for the purpose of page views".

No? Not as pithy?

C'mon, that clip is hysterical. And if you're going to blame the poster for cherrypicking, you should accuse Hello Games of also cherrypicking. I've seen a lot of NMS streams, and the creatures trend more toward the goofy hooved T-Rex, and not the majestic sauropods shown in the trailer. And personally, I don't view that as a bad thing. It means I'm more likely to encounter something truly bizarre.

The Mass Effect games aren't really all that old. I don't really see the need to remaster every game when it hits 5 or 10 years old. They look and play fine.

I see this as more of a marketing move to get the old games playable on the same generation of consoles that new game is going to be on.

This was my thought. I replayed ME1 on PC three years ago, and cranked the graphics to max and thought it looked amazing for an "older" game. Not sure there's all that much to be gained here, except that I'm sure it will look better on PS4/XB1 than it did originally on PS3/XB360.

You guys are overreacting and/or not reading.

They aren't testing the gameplay on PC, for the reasons you're all mentioning: PC has a wide variety of hardware. Their software isn't far enough along optimized for this, so any testing on the PC now wil just give garbage data - it's hard to tell if the gameplay is working when the hardware isn't.

So this test, just for gameplay elements, is for console only, where they know it will work. PC hardware testing will come later in development.

And I wouldn't be surprised if the PC release is delayed to give them extra time to polish it, given that greater QA it requires. As it should be.
