I still have Alice 2 installed, and aside from a few iffy platforming parts, absolutely adore it, also in what universe was Alice 1 lighthearted? Me thinks whoever says that needs to replay it, doesn't get much darker than that.

Doesn't Square-Enix have a good track record of releasing PC patches? If not, this doesn't bode well for Final Fantasy 15.

Certainly not with their PC ports, they port and forget. But they will happily sell you pointless DLC

As far as I can tell, the new UT is both modable and free, and yet I hear next to nothing about it on here or elsewhere. I keep hearing over and over that if a great, modable game came out, people would be all over it, and the original UT was what I consider one of the greats in that area. Is the new one just that bad or user unfriendly?

Quick check on twitch
Unreal Tournament - Live Channels
1 result

Quick look at it
2 Servers online
extremely low player population (low teens)

And that channel only played private match because no players online
So yeah, that answers your question imo

Suggest sex all you like, just don't have any actual sex.

Even worse, nipples or nudity. But apparently only when your game name isn't Witcher 3

I said it before, but I think this behavior by Valve is pretty despicable

That Musk story is what happens when you try to voice a diverse opinion in 140 characters... I am sure, somehow, AI development will militarize things more. But AI will also become a dominant factor in advancing our race. You can not stop researching it just because you are afraid. If the singularity happens and we were not ready for it, well tough luck. But we gotta try at least.

The new free spying dx12 exclusives shiny has wore off.
And just when I was thinking of downgrading to 10, not.
Did gamers all of a sudden have an epiphany.

Seriously? That's a non-story built on a previous non-story if I've ever seen one (skimming the comments, it seems Neowin reports similar "groundbreaking discoveries" every month). A change less than one percent is not even approaching margin of error for that data, not to mention that one month's or even two months' change is not a trend. People aren't going back to 7 from 10, more like the stubborn fucks who have kept on XP until the bitter end are starting to move up a rung because they're finally being forced. Or another theory from the comments, Steam is seeing an uptick of users from China on eMachine-quality rigs coming for PUBG.

Windows 10 isn't exactly popular in China, so I would guess you are spot on with that assessment. And hey, I am still on W7 but once I upgrade there isn't really a path left to go that isn't W10

Sometimes it's what they say.
"We hope to use AI in our phones to have more learning capabilities ... together with big data, we will be able to understand consumer habits...," Lee told ZDNet.
It's no longer spying on you, your habits and what you do if it's in your hand.

At least they are honest about it... and let's face it, a proper AI needs to know and understand your habits to be.. well.. intelligent. Although I guess this limits what you can or should do with your phone, especially when it starts to call the cops on you for a suspected "criminal habit" o.O Or refuses to call the ambulance when you injure yourself in an illegal act...

Odds are they would probably glean insights from this data based on your internet activity generated from this AI - not only that way does it show them what sort of information was actually relevant to you, but it likely makes it easier for them to modify their own privacy statements.

I still wonder where in this elaborate setup the AI makes them (the few corporations can can afford to develop one) money though... Selling your data sounds like a really bad idea, since it would give competitors AI the tools to compete with the original fancy AI. So how would they make an AI a part of their monetization?

I mean, Google isn't doing much selling your data, just selling access to people with certain data profiles.

No one can go to Google and say "I want to know what eRe4s3r is doing between 4pm and 6pm every day" or "I want to know what brand toasters eRe4s3r is buying," but they can say "I own a restaurant and want to show happy hour ads to people who walk by every day between 4pm and 6pm."

I never fully understand some of the huge anger towards this. I've seen people complain along the lines of "oh great, so they can take more data and show me more ads!" You're getting the ads, anyway, may as well be better ads for you individually. You're still going to ignore 99.9% of them.

The joke is that I would very much like to know what I am going to do between 4pm and 6pm NEXT week (a predictive calculation that would allow me to know what I buy for dinner preparations in advance based on what is in my fridge by then) so yeah I find that not scary, I actually want an AI household assistant today already, and not just in 10 or 20 years, but I am guessing it won't be as simply as having a robot maid, every device would need to linked to the AI, or the AI would need to have one of the most absurdly advanced recognition systems on that planet (to look in your fridge/cellar/storage and see what you got, then make recipes you like based on this, and buy stuff when it's on sale to refill)

My worry is that for the AI developers, there is legitly no profit to be made here. A good AI would guide me to sales somewhat before I have an actual replacement need, a good AI would guide me to products that are highly rated, not to products that somehow make Google (or whomever) money. Sure, a good AI would bind me to google services if it's from google, but google services are not exactly a major part of the meat-world.

So you see, I simply wonder how an AI is gonna make the actual developers of it money. When it comes down to it, an AI needs a mobile platform to be useful in a household. It needs arms/hands/fingers to do stuff, it needs advanced computing solutions, it needs a power supply solution... none of that is made by the AI creators. ON the other end of the spectrum, an AI that flies planes or drives cars, or ships, or trains, still needs that thing to be built to begin with. And google can do many things, but it can not build a ship or a plane. (SpaceX/Tesla can build ships, cars and planes, so maybe I am on the wrong track thinking the revolution will come from an IT company)

So.. yeah. I guess I agree with that

Well, yeah, but that's not the goal. It's clickbait.

Yes, but if said scientists want continued funding they need to learn to play the game. Never forget the wisdom of The Right Stuff, "No bucks. No Buck Rogers."

Well, if they really do play this game with that intention they are a lot smarter than I gave them credit for. And that would be actually pretty damn amazing in this context

But indeed, It made me click the link (I wondered what absurd non-science bs it's gonna be) only to discover it's real scientists debunking the headline.. hah.

That's aside the fact that obviously the only source for such a burst of energy from another galaxy is non-alien There is no way they could detect us or even our sun from that distance (our sun is pretty dim comparatively)

New IP + New Developer + Multiplayer-only + $30 = flop (except for PUBG, which is the exception to the rule). The MP market is highly saturated and most people only play one MP game at a time. Lawbreakers is competing against CS:GO, PUBG and Overwatch. The average consumer is not going to risk $30 on a MP-only game that might be dead within a week when they're already playing something they know they enjoy.

And add to that I had no idea this game even had released ;/ Which is too bad, It actually looks really fun. But yeah, hard to argue for a sale when you know it's gonna be dead in MP, especially in EU1 regions....

So, if someone doesn't follow the group-think, it becomes hate-speech. Brilliant idea, comrades.

I mean, this is directly calling Nazism hate speech. You're arguing slippery slope for calling Nazi propaganda hate speech?


And you think it's not a slippery slope to give IT companies the definition power over what is racism and what isn't?

I mean, if a court has to decide what is or isn't and THEN it gets censored, fair enough. But as I understand this goes a lot further than that, and has absolutely ZERO legal checks.

A court can hit you with sanctions, potentially criminal.

A corporation can choose not to do business with you. We've had this discussion, and you were the one who kept spitting out slippery slope arguments while claiming they weren't slippery slope, right? Who kept saying "but what if?!" then saying it wasn't a slippery slope argument?

The full force of your intellectual ability... amounts to trying to ad-hominem me because I look at possibility consequences in the future because I see a threat of these incentives to free-speech. Very impressive Of course, you also basically defended racial segregation just now. Only now it ain't race, now it is opinions that don't match your ideology.

I guess Mr Bone was right, all hail the group-think.

And yeah, they really gotta do something against 3rd party counterfeit resellers. It's extremely hard to tell where something is coming from on Amazon. But at least in Germany they gotta take the thing back no questions asked if it's counterfeit.

Amazon most certainly has your phone number. And if you some inexplicable reason they didn't they could still easily contact you through your CC provider or bank.

I think the far bigger problem is that I'd never believe anyone calling me if they said they are from "Amazon" and got my phone number from my "bank" ;p

We're living in the next golden age of RPGs, gentlemen(I'd say and ladies, but this is bluesnews). A resurgence that's probably better than the BG2 era, to be honest.

It's just too bad the real world is complete shit right now.

Could the two be connected?

I think it would only be a valid resurgence if big developers and publishers served that genre.... as it is, we got a few gems coming but that is always the case, true RPG's, far reaching as BG2 or Torment or even the first Dragon Age or the Mass Effect trilogy, are not gonna come from big AAA developers ever again I fear.


CD Project might be the only exception.

And yes, I realize we get (it seems) every console RPG with decent sales ported to steam nowadays so that's good too
