I bought it, I played it for a bit, and it didn't grab me. So maybe the answer to the question was "Because it was boring?"

Have to agree here, nothing they did with that game grabbed me, it was just immensely boring to play both before and after the "fixes"

Glad I wasn't the only one!

...when a female walking outside of the crosswalk crossed the road from west to east...

So a human was behaving irrationally, and the driving algorithms failed to anticipate and proactively avoid the collision?

IMO, that's how most accidents happen with human drivers...

The thing is, through analysis and enhancements, this AI is only going to get better. Unlike humans.

It will be interesting to know if this was an accident a human could have avoided, although that seems to be the implication.

This time DX12 will be worth it! Yet more empty promises?

In any case, it's a nice demo, but what about this can't be done with current graphics technology?

Might be less about "can it be done" and more about "how much more easily it's done?" I think Zoom captured it well.

Nuking asteroids makes for good headlines and bad movies.
In actuality it's pure folly.
Bill Bryson devotes a chapter about how it will never be a thing, and a reassuring section on the the aftermath of a world ender hitting terra firma.

Nuking an asteroid to stop an imminent collision will never be a thing. Nuking an asteroid to knock it off a collision course in 20 years could be.

Two months of daily GTA causes “no significant changes” in behavior.

GTA is a bad test game. The propensity for violence is counteracted by all those digital BJs.

As for two months, I think that's plenty of time to effect a behavioral change if played daily. Military basic training is 9 weeks for example, and results in a lot of behavioral changes.

Use a business machine to play games? Ridiculous. <-80s and 90s

Use a smartphone to play games? Ridiculous. <- You are here.

What is wrong with you people, seriously?

Plan on spending half the price of an $800 smartphone on insurance and deductible. Plus wrap that beautiful objet d'art in an ugly ass hunk of rubber and plastic.

Yeah my phone has a beautiful bamboo back. It's really a beautiful phone, to the point that it shipped with a clear plastic bumper so I could both protect and display the phone. I ordered a case anyway, since the bumper didn't offer enough protection.

Hey, does anyone have experience using mixed reality headsets for VR games? The price point seems much better than Rift or Vive. Here's one for $250. Here's another for $220.

I always cringe so hard when I see a Twitch clip of someone freaking out over a game. Mostly because they are actually serious.

Also, Wreck it Ralph is SO cool!

It is a great movie with real heart. Part of the genius is in the casting of Sarah Silverman and John C. Reilly who have voices perfect for CG and great chemistry (same goes basically for the entire supporting cast). Can't wait for the sequel.

A far simpler question could be asked

Is Russia really the enemy or is someone trying to sabotage Russian <-> West relations

And who'd gain from this, because it sure as hell isn't Russia nor the West.


Russian politicians look good to their people in the short term. Long term, it helps Russian defence/expansion. I've seen people say NATO should be disbanded because Europe has *already* been invaded, that's hugely beneficial to any Russian hawks who want to nibble away at more of Ukraine. Also just revenge, supposedly Putin was pissed about the Panama Papers revealing his secrets.

Putin doesn't need to lift a finger to take down NATO countries, they're doing a fine job of destroying themselves.

But I'm holding out hope that the refugees will integrate into western culture, they just need to be treated with kindness and love.

The issue is the politicians are the ones that want the refugees, the average person does not.

Yeah, I'm sure there's some empirically proven number of immigrants you can let in to get the benefit of diversity without destabilizing a society. Germany, Italy, Greece, and some other countries seem to be way over that limit.

more like every antagonistic action that Putin's Russia has made is in direct reaction to the actions of the West

the main action being the Eastward expansion of NATO and the encirclement of Russia with ABM complexes.

I'll agree it was a bad move to try to get countries right on Russia's border into NATO on the one hand. Ukraine's imminent joining probably caused Russia to take Crimea before he would have to deal with the full weight of NATO.

On the other hand, the Russian government are thugs, killing and jailing journalists, oppo leaders, and anyone else that gets in their way.
