No, that's still not AI. We can not create AI with the current computing architecture. That's a fact.
Edit: read this http://scienceblogs.com/developingintelligence/2007/03/27/why-the-brain-is-not-like-a-co/

Ah , thanks for the link. Learned something new

To be honest I hope these assistants will create the illusion enough that we don't need to think about whether it is AI or script. It either works right or it doesn't (Siri doesn't) and google assistant funnily enough, does, it however falls completely apart when you refer to notes or email contents (thankfully?) ;p

I am just bedazzled Siri has that little illusion behind it, considering how it was hyped. Google seems to play more into the "you shouldn't be able to tell it's just a dumb machine" mindset, I wonder if that isn't enough to create a life-like communication on a response mechanism (since it only ever acts on questions).

Mechwarrior Online is just a team death match style game. But it does have excellent controls and a great feeling of piloting a giant mech. By far the best controls and feeling out of all the mechwarrior games.

Second,
Mechwarrior online started as a single player game which they showed trailers of a city battle with an atlas then they made it into F2P money grab.
Wouldn't be surprised if in a year they say "Mechwarrior 5 canceled, mechwarrior online getting co-op mode".


That trailer was for a crowdfund campaign, which failed, and even back then they said they will make a f2p p2w version to get to money to make what they originally intended to. That was before the "good" game engines got dirt cheap.

And secondly I don't think MWO will get coop It uses cry-engine, this new game uses Unreal 4, you can't share any code between the 2 projects. New engine means they are serious about it being independent from MWO at the very least. And it would make no sense to add AI, pathing etc. to MWO, which has focus and player base focused exclusively on competitive gameplay.

If you remove the numbers or reduce them by 1 it could be one from a few years ago if you squint ^^

Wonder if this will get creepy only when you play it and it's finally a first person RE This trailer however was pretty shit.

When I think back to that semi-recent Dawn of War 3 Trailer ..... ;p It just goes to show how important good sound design is.

Yup, we're all waiting for a fucking proper Mechwarrior remake. With VR taking off, the time is right. Fuck, can you imagine MW2 Mercenaries with a modern rendering engine and VR???

JUST TAKE MY MONEY

Indeed ^^ But this is one of these hopes that will never come to pass. The one hope we had for this, turned out be MWO....

Yeah, and I don't want online PVP. I want Mercs-style campaign mode, with fleshed out financial /inventory/mech/employee management, and moral ambiguity in mission outcomes. The sense of being a tiny fly caught in a hurricane of Inner Sphere politics set amidst the threat of Clan invasions, and the squabbling of petty Houses. Basically, MW2:Mercs but with more everything.


HELL yeah.

The future called, MW5 Mercenaries announced.. by the MWO makers.. lmao

I hope they don't stick too closely to pnp rules... otherwise MW4-merc-modded win strategy will remain valid

Oh hell yes! Did they read our topic from a few days ago or what? And yeah I am hyped, SP focused MW5 in a merc company setting is the one thing I want out of this franchise. The ONE THING. MWO and COOP can kiss my armored mech ass.

And this looks primed for VR as well. If this isn't super shit, then it will be the "win" app for VR (for me).

Pray to the baby Jesus we won't have to pick flowers/everything like DA:I. If I have to watch that excruciatingly slow bend-over-pick-up animation one more time I'm most likely going to give this a pass. Minor annoyances that become huge over the course of a game far too long for its variety of content.

Yeah there was a mod for that, got rid of animation, immediate pick up. I saved a 1/2 year of my life I feel. Some though my call that dumbing down, I call it playing smart.

One of the only mods I needed for that game... there was another to increase inventory size, got that as well... these 2 things always annoyed me to no end in my first playthrough.. gah

I was all ready to curse this guy out, but reading the article, he is a classic old school hacker, and no doubt none of his devices will contribute to the IoT botnets. Have fun, buddy.


In my non-geek household, I switch the machine on, read the time it takes on the display, enter that in my tablet timer thingy and go make food or something...

The solution he made is kinda cool though. But wifi signal near my washer in the cellar is 0, so wouldn't even be a solution for me if I wanted to get fancy ;/

I'm definitely safer than your average Internet cruiser. I went years without AV on my personal PC without ever getting a virus. I would occasionally download a trial just to do a scan, never found anything. I eventually started using it to protect myself from an accidental exposure -- a virus on a legit site or a friend unknowingly sending me one...

Doubt AV would you protect you from either of these threats, if it's a 0-day exploit in your browser or in a plugin transmitted via ad network then no AV would trigger, only protection is uBlock origin and, far more severe Javascript blockers (that's the stuff that can stealth open new browser windows in Firefox...). And these are the real threats nowadays. I dunno what you get via email, but as I said, use (clean) instance of sandboxie if you want to be really sure Aside from peace of mind, it also gives you an overview of network traffic and where the app puts files... very educational ^^

But what works for me, doesn't work for everyone. And it takes some mental effort to not click on exe files without sandboxie test first...

I am glad Hideo Kojima finally got his award MGS5 was monumental in scope and effort, and it is incredibly sad that the fucktards at Konami ruined it and were true fucktards in every aspect to boot. That a company can even behave like Konami did and not be hammered down by the law is a Japanese oddness that should be fixed. But probably won't...

And Nolan just made clear that VA's may deserve better pay, but they certainly do not deserve special clauses in their contracts that nobody else can get in the industry.

I think it looks pretty awesome. Only thing is that default Femshep's face looks way too smiley for the renegade action she's doing. "I'm going to kill you now!" *BIG BRIGHT SMILE*

But whatever, I never play with default faces anyway.

The best way to murder, pillage and burn, with a *BIG BRIGHT SMILE* and a soothing voice ^^

But yeah, default faces always sucked ^^

Since we are on the topic of security... what do you guys use for anti-virus? I've been using AVG for a couple of years now, but they just updated putting in a once every three days ad-nag, has me looking around...

Eh, depends on your internet usage habits... for most people AV is completely pointless waste of system res and mental sanity ;p Any false positive makes you less careful, and that is imo very dangerous. I only use sandboxie to test exe and installer files I download, everything else i relegate to a monthly scan with malware bytes, so far only got a hidden bitcoin miner once packaged in a legit sourceforge installer of all things. Took all of 10 seconds to kill it entirely with malwarebytes.. so yeah, having that definitely advisable, having AV on the other hand wouldn't have stopped this attack, the bitcoin miner trojans use legit pre-configured miner software packaged in the installer. If AV triggers there, it would trigger on everything (And thus defeat the point of AV)

If you don't click on weird email attachments you are good

But then again I also have a ghosted "pre-internet" version of my system disc that I could reinstall in a few minutes should something go haywire. And my network drives are firstly disconnected when not in use and secondly encrypted. My only gripe would be that an encryption trojan would mess up my savegames.. ;p

And aside that, 2FA ^^

I dunno when you last played System Shock 2, but the game is heavily loot, crafting, research, exploration and combat focused... hence the connection drawn

But imo it is important to remember that this ain't a trailer, it is narrated which means heavily scripted gameplay out of some section of the game that is clearly not anywhere near the beginning, and it's cut heavily too. And as I assume, largely meant to show a few gameplay elements.. or all of them (one hopes not)

I have a Athlon Phenom II x4 and a GTX 670

I have that same CPU (the 965). Believe it or not, you are probably still GPU limited in most games.

Mine was originally purchased with a GTX285 all those years ago When the DX11 switch came around I picked up a 580, and was using that up until about 2 months ago. I thought it was starting to show some age when the DOOM demo dropped it basically didn't work at all... and I wasn't able to run things like TW3 at more than medium settings. Then one day my 580 mysteriously dies and a friend gives me his old 6GB Titan (he goes through $1000 video cards like water)... and this 8-year-old CPU continues to amaze me. I can run basically every game maxed out again minus GameWorks and unnecessary levels of AA with no stuttering (mind you I'm only aiming for 1080p here). I have Dolphin emulation running smoothly at 8k internal resolution... I keep thinking "oh it's time to upgrade this CPU... but it keeps changing my mind. At this rate, I doubt I'll even push for a CPU upgrade next year.

Well I am definitely noticing a CPU limit in games like Cities: Skylines but yeah, the primary limiting factor is my VRAM in games. It was one of my best upgrades buying this thing It works and works and works, it has survived 3 GPU's (from a 6600 over an ATI card I will never mention* to a 670 GTX...)

But I can feel the limitations of the underlying platform and upgrade is looming just because of that. I will not replace anything in this rig though.. gonna sit there as my 2nd PC for emergencies.

And in my case, no Titan would fit The case wasn't really made for what I am putting it through, heh, but it has great cooling performance.. ^^

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, I was expecting a MechWarrior running the Unreal 5 6 or whatever the latest engine is... Not expecting that :/

Still, a proper modern TBS of this is welcome as well.. maybe we'll live to see Mechwarrior 5

A fast charger is nowhere near the cost of the car that is just wrong (you are off by an order of magnitude). Charging stations seem to exist in many parking lots attached to big big stores or shopping centers and malls. Electricity is already available all those places and companies make money selling electricity at charging stations so why would these stations not spread along with demand?

A kwh here costs nearly 30ct and a tesla in winter needs around 23kwh per 100km (which is really a HUGE lot)

It's cheaper to fuel your (much cheaper) car with gasoline. Now admittably the situation in Germany is weird, in that we have very high power costs due to this retarded implemented renewable energy initiative... ;p

Anyway, in Germany what you describe is not the situation at all.

Until there is a EV car that needs a lot less than 15kw/h per 100km and costs less than 10k this entire technology is pointless. At least when you have to pay for a kw/h what I have to pay... unless you buy a EV for ideological reasons, there is sadly no economical benefit for doing so. And when there is no economic benefit, well you get what I have in Germany.

Thing is, with the way electrical vehicles require KW for distance that is a bad deal currently (in Germany, with the high power cost, that is).
