There was a Star Trek Enterprise D tech demo, and also a Voyager demo that was done for one of the headsets, which I would love to play with buut no way am I getting a headset in the next 10 years

ten years? In like, 3, the original Vives will be around $200 used.

I dunno I deal with some annoying aspects of mass transit here in Germany already. Like rush hour trains getting only 2 passenger cars, and you cannot even fit people on it, it even has more stops.

And wait 20mins later and a 4 passenger car train arrives and its under a quarter full. And its been like that for longer then I've been alive and it never changes. You would think, ohh more people? need more cars? nope.

Why try to run simulations and crap to see when you need more trains or bus routes? Just actually have the planners ride them for an average week back and fourth. Stuff would change real quick then I'm sure.

Or trains breaking down because it's too hot, too stormy, too wet, or because it *gasp* snowed, in winter. (Also modern trains you can't open the windows, hence why broken AC can make these things a deathtrap)

Judging from youtube videos what this game needs is a patch to make the AI not appear to be functionally brain dead.

Could be said for every Tomb Raider / console game ever though

Clearly you don't understand how AI, probabilities, and random deterministic numerical forecasting work. Suffice it to say, with each piece removed it gets easier for the machine. That's why it could predict the win so far out. But go ahead and be dazzled by the "magic" of it all.

You should watch the match

How could he expect to win when he's playing something that can calculate almost all possible variations and outcomes instantly.

If it could do that then none of this would be such a big deal. Go is ridiculous, an AI learning how to play it like this is really impressive.

There are 2.110^170 possible positions on the board. That's why they had to develop new methods of neural networking (it uses 2 in conjunction) to beat the champ... it can't just "look up all of the moves" and it certainly doesn't make it's decisions instantly.

Exactly, this is by FAR the greatest breakthrough in applied neutral network AI development so far. And if Cutter had watched the matches he would know the AI wasn't brute-forcing anything. It made creative opening moves it had learned were the most efficient (based on many thousands, probably millions, of simulations against itself) and it had creative and unpredictable changes of focus on the various "action" fields in Go (corners). For an AI to have such a thing as shifting focus, re-weighting territories and full grasp of the rules of GO is astounding. Many AI scientists said this was still 20 to 50 years away!

If you know even a tiny bit of Go you know it can't be brute-forced... hence why this AI prediction (in the 2nd match) was so utterly amazing. For an AI to know it has won a good 30 minutes before anyone even saw wtf the AI was talking about means the AI has to understand Go. And it could never arrive at this conclusion by brute-forcing possible moves. It understood that the human player made a mistake that it could leverage.

The victories were predicted by said AI ~30 minutes before that human player surrendered. Think about that The AI had noticed it had won 30 minutes before the best GO player noticed he had lost.

I salute our go playing machine overlords.

You all look at Apple, but that bank robbery story is far more insane of the 2 stories... those weren't just hackers, they walked away with actual money, 81 millions and very nearly more than half a billion

Bangladesh Bank didn't even notice they were being pwned.. lmao

I seen a streamer who was wearing a bikini top, she had blonde hair as well. Terrible at the game she was playing. I found it on a random twitch stream when I was watching over Christmas.

Its the sexual appeal style, have some skinny, pretty thing playing games without clothes on to get the (let's be honest) 13+ year old male demographic.

Its just to grab viewer's. Instead of relying on a persons character and speaking/entertainment talent. You go the cheapest route possible and use a body to sell product.

Twitch actually made a rule against this... personally I don't give 2 shits how a streamer looks, what I do care about is whether he/she has a nice voice and can actually play the game worth a damn. Bonus points when there is humor involved.

Am I the only one who tried the beta an was already sick of that gameplay from that alone? Aside from shooting there wasn't really much to do there...

This is how you based your time in the beta and came to the conclusion the game is lame because they locked down the beta and only gave you a small taste of the real game.

Now had you played the final release of the game and based your decision then you would have some validity to your comment. But seriously, I take this comment as, I ate the ice cream cone, but I didn't taste the ice cream. That about sums it us here for you.

Seriously, I was amazed how much was held back from the beta in the original areas and how many missions popped up when you go back to the base and open up new areas for the med and tech centers. You guys really have no clue how much more content there is in this game but you all are basing your game play from a small beta that gave us literally nothing.

No, I base it on the fact that I was bored while playing the beta demo Bullet sponges and boring loot. Bad AI and bad story. Result: A pass

Not to mention this game will be dead in a month or less MP wise.

These Gawker idiots can't even pretend to be normal human beings when being sued and sitting in front of a jury.

Not surprising when it comes to Gawker now is it.. but they have huge success with it.

Gold should be free too, many poor people have never seen it before, it's not fair and probably racist as well.

Are you comparing the internet to gold? Because that would be hilariously absurd.

New Control Map: Ilios
Situated atop a small island rising from the Aegean Sea, Ilios is a postcard-perfect Mediterranean town, with a bustling harborside, winding paths for rambling hillside strolls, and gorgeous vistas. It is the ideal vacation stop for people looking for a place to relax, or for those interested in exploring the ruins scattered at the top of the island, where many artifacts and relics of the ancient world have been recently unearthed.

It would be nice if you could actually do those things but you can't. So why would they write that?

The PR person is paid per word?

I can't remember the last time I installed a video driver update other than immediately after installing the video card... am I missing out on something?

Depending on what you play that answer can range from "no" to "yes, about 40 fps" ;p

Ooh, scary! Now I'll be the guy you keep referring to whenever something in the game pisses you off xP Let me know what your first impressions are!

So far it's fun ^^ Bashing heads with a 2 handed club and having my black kitty creep with me through outposts is pretty awesome (I want the snow blood wolf!) And it really has a nice atmosphere.. 21% completion ^^

Really having a blast with this game. It has a charm, a sense of immersion that's stronger than usual. The devil is in the details. You can pet your animal companion, for example. Completely useless, but awesome. I pet my panther so often it ridiculous. xP

Some of the reviews are really scathing though, did they really re-use the meshes, map and camp layouts from Farcry 4? If so 60 is a pretty extreme price.

You got it for cheaper from someplace?

This one a friend gave me because I'm basically his personal bank. Www.kinguin.net I think the game's sold for 27 euros?

Don't notice anything about map or camp layouts. I'm not surprised if some stuff is reused here and there. Far Cry Primal feels like a guilty pleasure and I should've mentioned that in the video, I think, because it really is another Far Cry 3.5 (like FC4)... but the new addition with the animals is just so. freaking. awesome! xP Plus the setting is really well done. You'd think 10.000 B.C. areas get boring quickly but they are really awe inspiring. The story is nicely done too, given they were limited to a time where intrigue and plot-twists just wouldn't make sense when everything is based around survival.

Well you sold me on this (Found it for 35 for the deluxe whatchacallit edition) expecting extreme animal petting.. (OK, maybe a bit more than that) If it's like blood dragon, a guilty pleasure, then this ought to be interesting. ^^
