It would be feasible, but I guess if my idea gained traction we'd not be calling it UBI anymore.

I would only pay out decaying (30 days lifetime) non transferable, DNA bound tokens. All basic* living necessities could be payable with Tokens, but there'd be a huge up-front caveat, all industries to include in this thinking, would have to be 100% automated and not use imported resources as base.

*Internet at mandated speed (50mbit or 100mbit or whatever), Power, Water, Food, Clothes, Social activities

And this right there is where you incentivize working again. Because tokens only pay for so much of that, if you want "more" you have to work in jobs that benefit society and reduce gov costs, and not companies. This could be child-care, teaching, police, maintenance, infrastructure (power/water/internet) and manufacturing in whatever requires imported goods. These jobs would be mandated in companies and a human would always be prioritized over a robot. And yes, these jobs would be heavily taxed.... but you'd still have more than someone who only subsides on tokens.

But overall, I think UBI with real money can never work. It will have to be a token currency. And it would probably have to be very fine grained one at that (ie. local produce is always prioritized etc.)

The goal of UBI in my thinking, by the way, is not to keep people from becoming criminals, but to transfer nations from capitalism to ecologism, where everything produced has some thing attached to offset the damage to the environment. And this is also why the tokens would be non transferable and not saveable

prelim reports stress the "action" part of action-RPG on this one... only combat related skills and abilities.. no dialog or interaction type upgrades.. also has a "you are the messiah" based story, and yes, the "DA:I in space" format is confirmed as well (makes sense because you were the messiah in that one too)

I better be the damn Messiah. If I wanted to be a random nobody, I'd put the controller down and spend time with my family, go to work, watch TV.

What I understand is that you are actually the child of the Messiah in Andromeda, so that is a bit of a change of pace.

Yeah I don't get what the problem with that is anyway, as Bundy said, if I wanted a normal dude I'd play real life. And chances are in real life, we will never ever see a pathfinder program of this scale and scope in our lifetimes. Maybe if we are lucky we see Moon for Heł, and Mars colonization.. MAYBE.

Either way, I am hyped for this, there can never be "too much" Mass Effect, and I liked DA:I.... makes me the minority here? Is it so weird to enjoy Mass Effect trilogy, Final Fantasy 13-2, Gothic as a whole, Dragons Dogma and Dragon Age as a whole?

My core genre is definitively RPG, but I don't care much for specifics, you give me a well made or even great experience in a fantasy or sci-fi realm and you nearly by definition have me sold. But then I also liked Mars Logs... however rough that was, it was unique

Don't be fooled, this lost basically all of its true w40k roots.

How so? Also, considering how many "true" 40k games are absolute garbage, does it matter if they take some liberties as long as the game is good?

Correct, u refering to most of the shovelware titles that come out by no name developers to try to attract w40k fans to buy a game using the license.

However, in this case they really dumped w40k rules, they basically abandon all the violence and darkness of w40k that was still noticeable in dow1 and even dow2, and worst of all the game looks like a cartoon, the graphics are in many areas actually a step back even than dow2. Technically this is a high budget shovelware moba game with w40k sticked to it to try and catch w40k fans. Oh and did I forget, there is no last stand game mode in it, a mode that kept dow2 alive for years. without last stand noone would be playing dow2 anymore.

Funny, kinda looks about the same, sans the 'cleaning up' of the models

If anything it's surprising I can hardly tell DoW2 and this "new" game apart, that first screenshot looks worse than DoW2, much fewer details, no ground height differences and particle effects. It's like they went back and gimped the engine.... but then again, showing an ice world is maybe what does that.. mhh. The DoW2 ice worlds looked a lot better (grimmer)

The only mode I enjoy other than doing the campaign once is Last Stand. No Last Stand, no buy.

The funny thing is, if you merged Last Stand game mode, random loot drops (at least a few thousand different items), and rogue lite elements, you'd have a fucking win (SP, COOP)! On top of that add base building and character interaction that gives you more and more options as the last stand campaign goes on. And maybe even xeno support

Ah, but an empty hope it is. Relic forgot how to do good RTS

I enjoyed DoW2 much more than 1, although I have both installed (1 with heavy modding, obviously) and DoW2 just because I really enjoyed the last stand mode.

Not to mention that when it comes to good rts with great production value we really have been handed the "shit" card the past year. There have been what, 5 decent rts games in the whole of the year? This genre is getting pretty damn dead. And though we get AI War 2 and Dawn of War 3, what besides that? Where is the next Anno game? Where is the next great RTS with a story and characters? Where is the next Warcraft ? Heck, even Star Craft 3?

So yeah, DoW3 is gonna be what it is, but at least it is an RTS.

Jimmy Hoffa is a silent partner. Creating in nonsense a casket-less system. spooky
Actually, he is. I googled before posting sarcastic replies.

ZeniMax's Board of Directors consists of eight individuals:

Robert S. Trump (President, Trump Management, Inc.)

Edit:

Although to me, it's just as interesting that the board of directors includes people like:
Jerry Bruckheimer
Leslie Moonves

Heh, I thought this was well known... It's one of the reason I harbor a subconscious dislike for Zenimaxx for a few decades now... but it also just so happens that they, sometimes, make pay for great games.

if its close to the same Frostbite engine they used in BF1, then that would be excellent - because that one runs great and looks awesome at the same time

The more I play UE4 the more angry I get, that engine for some reason has no scaling. running 4k gives you literally 25% the performance. No other engine operated like that, don't really know what they're doing. It seems optimized for 1080 resolutions.

I dunno if you intended it that way, but this is really funny

4k pixels = 8.294.400
HD pixels = 2.073.600

Now take a wild guess why you see 25% of the performance of HD ^^ But it can also be because AO/DOF/AA/SS was active. All screenspace effects will add a HUGE frame delay. 4 times as much screenspace, after all.

Remains to be seen how the 6 core versions fare, probably much better For gaming the only thing that matters is single *thread* and if you render in Cinema4D or 3dsmax, the ryzen 1800x is something to consider.

Welcome to reality

Facts are busting this old myth up good^^

Interesting read, thanks But only with latest Titan GPU... so meh.

So meh? Its the worst case scenario for a CPU. Especially those 720p graphs, if its fine at 720p with a Titan XP, it'll be fine at any res higher than 720p with any GPU.

Oh, and one last thing... Userbenchmark shows that the kabylake VS ryzen ST scores are comparable for some workloads. Mind you, Kaby is using Turbo there and goes up to 3.8ghz on this chip in ST, Ryzen is not and stays at 3.4ghz in this test with turbo disabled.

So the Kaby has a 11.76% ghz advantage.

Kaby VS Ryz scores source

SC Mixed:
Ryz @ 3.4 = 111
Kaby @ 3.8 = 111

SC Int
Ryz @ 3.4 = 98.8
Kaby @ 3.8 = 114 ( 15.3% advantage )

SC Float
Ryz @ 3.4 = 109
Kaby @ 3.8 = 122 ( 11.9% advantage )

Pretty even on the float IPC wise when you consider the 11.76% ghz advantage of Kaby, which is all that matters for gaming.

Well "meh" because that setup costs way too much for my taste.

I guess we will truly see on march 3rd when that silly NDA lifts, I am very curious to see some proper and vast benchmarks, especially deep look at memory perf, noise and power curves, especially idle behavior, and boost behavior. But if I am honest, 8 core doesn't interest me, I want 6 cores for sub 250€ , so yeah... ^^

When I compare cpu, I compare same price cpu's.... but also the platform price itself. And Ryzen not supporting W7 already pisses me off.

This sounds more like a nuke it from orbit strategy, targeting anything that even hints at infringement, regardless of actual content, and then issuing take downs for sites that don't even exist yet, but could exist in the future, and might have infringing material on it. That's nuts, and Google is okay with it, they just don't want more rules. I shudder to think what more would look like.
Do you know what this is?

Its probably fraud. Probable DMCA takedown fraud by the service contractor the rights holder use to enforce their copyright:

https://torrentfreak.com/pirate-site-with-no-traffic-attracts-49m-mainly-bogus-dmca-notices-170219/

"So in summary, APDIF makes up its own URLs, MP3Toys randomly generates a page of music that has nothing to do with the URL input, APDIF logs it as an infringement of its clients’ rights, and sends a complaint to Google."

Like the click fraud some service contractors are doing in the realm of online advertising, this seems to me like "DMCA notice fraud" to scam the copyright holders.

Exactly, it is a method for the brazil scam outfit to fudge numbers and get more gov funds to do, yeah.. what exactly? DMCA random pages that don't exist until you search for them (That is truly meta) ;p

8 cores and worse performance and power consumption than an Intel 4 core...

how much worse? is it bigly?

Ryzen 1800X is 20% per core, 10% per thread slower than a 7700K (both stock)

Price 7700K = 350€
Price Ryzen1800X = 560€

Single thread perf cinebench 15
Core i7 7700K - 187
Ryzen 1800X - 162


Multi thread perf cinbench 15
Core i7 7700K - 963 / 4 (8 threads) = 240 per core / 120 per thread
Ryzen 1800X - 1601 / 8 (16 threads) = 200 per core / 100 per thread


200€ more for 10% less performance per thread. But if you are into overclocking and you replace the shit default cooler you can get much better results, you can get the threads at least to be on par to a stock 7700k, but you still pay 200€ more. And if you OC the 7700K you never gonna catch up with Ryzen 1800X in raw power available.

Remains to be seen how the 6 core versions fare, probably much better For gaming the only thing that matters is single *thread* and if you render in Cinema4D or 3dsmax, the ryzen 1800x is something to consider.

Pretty impressive win, especially because to my eyes there were 2 enemy cheaters (Widow and Winston) if that Winston ult was "pure skill" then I wanna buy that gaming chair and mouse pad that gives you lock-on and insta 180° turns

The Widow cheated obvious, the Winston cheated probably with the expensive aimbot that has hit % settings and only triggers during ults, it's nearly undetectable.

People without money should be able to submit claims without worrying that a mistake will result in heavy penalties, so the first few incorrect claims should result in a warning rather than a fee. This leaves room for it to be abused, but that's better than making copyright enforcement only for the wealthy.

I agree that this should have nothing to do with searches; this should only be for places that actually host the content.

3 strikes for DMCA claims would work as well, but under Trump what are the chances? ^^ It's gonna be an absolutely devastating fine though and on top a reward for whoever received the DMCA claim, because each claim adds a TON of extra required work, for nothing.
