If the original writers didn't intend a KKK reference then a translator has no business putting it in. It is that simple.

Whitey Whiteman, the hired translator, still insists the KKK reference is NO typo!

And let us all remember who hired him. The company that he just refused the request of because including a KKK mention could easily not be taken as a joke, certainly for quite a few Americans. And it could get them kicked from retail channels (which matters for PS4 release I guess...)

Just overall a really absurd news piece.

News Comments > Uncut Half-Life in Germany
4. Re: Uncut Half-Life in Germany Apr 28, 2017, 10:30 eRe4s3r
 
It was available in Germany since day 0 though, just had to know how to ask the store clerk Every single pc shop that was worth anything had these (uncensored) boxes with a glaring red "do not sell to minors" "under the counter" and I am not kidding

Btw, HL1 was ok, Unreal 1 was better I will never forget that starting flyover over that that castle with particle torches and reflections, water and everything. That was one of the defining moments for me, and everyone that saw it (had 2 friends over back then for the first go at the game) got sucked in and stuck to pc gaming ever since. Hl1 for us came later and if you had seen Unreal 1 first, HL1 was really ugly to look at actually.

To be honest, I've seen 2 previews from Gronkh (German youtube let's player) and liked what I saw... tons of gameplay variations later on as well, tons of interesting stuff to discover in the maps (and that was just the first 2 hours..)

A mix of TSA (apparently his wife got manhandled by the TSA, random sexual abuse services?), hotel personal being stupid (delayed check-in...) and a mugging (not of him, of his room) he didn't lose his papers, but quite a few things he had let in the room obviously. Hotel seemed to have handled this quite badly as well ... But at that point he was angry again and I didn't really fancy talking to old angry neighbor any longer.

Of course, that's not to say that all trips to the USA go down like this.. or one would hope.
Was the hotel a Trump joint?

Nah, from what I gather it was in the country side, but I didn't ask ;p Was a weird enough talk to have at 5am in the morning on the street. (and it was -3°C, yeah, in mid April)

Wahhhh. Waaaahhh never changes.
Unlike this series.
Wish they would have updated the original instead of what they did

I know Dawn of War 2 fizzled because it went away from traditional RTS and went super micro-managed but I f*cking *loved* that game. I probably put 300 hours into it and just played it through a couple weeks ago and had a lot of fun. My only complaint was that the Chaos Rising expansion had a weird loot distribution to it.

I think it would have done better if it wasn't a dawn of war title.

I loved DoW 2 campaign too, probably played it 3 or 4 times and it was always different since the various level up things really gave you different options... kinda sad we don't get to see a real continuation of this

Sales for DoW 3 are gonna be interesting once steamspy updates as well....

Wow, I just read some Steam reviews on what they did to the gameplay. Think I'll pick up Warhammer Total War instead.

That one IS good, right?
If you wait for the bundle sale when Warhammer 2 drops, with all the DLC, then yeah. Since the games are supposed to somehow integrate into each other. So wait for the summer sale. Which we all know comes

Understandable

I visit relatives on a regular basis and can say NOTHING positive about the TSA employees. Worst of the worst! How are they trained? Are they trained at all? Everytime they give me the feeling that foreigners should stay at home. Not because they are xenophobic or racist. Which some of them clearly are. Because most of them are lazy fucks who are annoyed with everything resembling work!

Where do you get these people? Why are they employed for a job where one has to deal with people from other nations?

I can imagine that working at a job like that requires the kind of person that enjoys groping random strangers... and maybe not the kind of person you want around children, or in charge of actual security.

Same. I don't get the EA hate anymore,because I actually like many of their new releases. Ubisoft on the other hand has been throwing that same boring as FUCK formula over all of their new games. And Division was a failure beyond comparison.

Yeah.. but hating on ubisoft is equally pointless, all the things I hate them for (shoving uPlay down my throat, what they did to Anno and most importantly, what they did to Silent Hunter) are things that likely won't improve in any way with a media conglomerate behind it that has literally no profit strategy.

Working title: Alien Frustration

Loved that game until the Alien got paranormal instincts and detected me wherever I hid. Then I quit and uninstalled. Don't tell me I am weak because I already know I can get frustrated with games after a long day at work if it gets too difficult. To each their own.

Yep, I'm not a fan of this run and hide type gaming. Give me a good old Pulse Rifle any day. Its not in my blood to play hide and seek. I need to blast the shit out of things.

Same here. A friend of mine loved it, but I just couldn't get into it. I guess survival/horror games just aren't my thing.

And there is nothing wrong with that I found Alien Isolation to be pretty damn scary though, can't remember last time a game made me dread the play button. But it has to be said that at least after 10 or so hours, the novelty wears off, and I'd rather have a "no alien" mode. Because teh station is amazingly detailed, but you can't afford to look at anything in mid to end game ~.~

Lol I tooootally called it. Just another rehash with 'wow da graphics' and ww2 literally only existing in Normandy and only Amerika won it. All other Nations, especially if they were an 'enemy' get no survive the war story. Hop on an AA gun a 'viscerally' and unrealistically shoot at Stukas G-1s, which are for some reason wasting anti tank shells on infantry. Bonus scenes for COD-Bros with a 'gritty' skull smashing scene inspiring them to sign up at their local recruiter.

Agreed, just another WW2 clone.. and to be honest, I really REALLY start to absolutely hate WW1 and WW2 games where only focus is only on allies. It's just.. seen that done before like 5 times, and not one single Normandy map in ANY GAME was ever fun to play. So yay!

Let's face it, the powers that be want the USA to become the next North Korea.

And to think I actually considered a vacation there, but my neighbor came back from one of such, and proclaimed it "the worst experience of his entire life" and he's 70, born in former GDR, so he lived through some serious shit.

But hey, apparently the USA doesn't want tourism

To be honest, if they convert this experience to a fantasy-magic-steampunk style sub-marine thing I am sold.... but Star Trek really doesn't do it for me...

The video however was funny as hell
Same for his Mass Effect Andromeda "review", if you are need of laughs, angry joe delivers (weirdly not much "angry" anymore..)

The Global Village article is interesting. It lends scientific backbone to the old saying that familiarity breeds contempt (different context, but quite similar).

Indeed, quite an interesting read that, puts "social" media into a context that it probably doesn't want to be put in as well.

It would be interesting if this concept actually transfers to linear media as well. If I know more about an actor, does that mean I will slowly but surely start to dislike his performances more and more?

In fact this resonates a lot with me

Being exposed to this superabundance of personal information can create an oppressive sense of “digital crowding,” a group of British scholars wrote in a 2011 paper, and that in turn can breed stress and provoke antisocial reactions. “With the advent of social media,” they concluded, “it is inevitable that we will end up knowing more about people, and also more likely that we end up disliking them because of it.”

If this is actually true, then that would explain voting results of the past 10 years in a way I could never imagine, I am actually scared about what this means when the current generation gets into politics.

Sorry for keeping on point, we can talk more about how WaltC said: "Ai chips are the same as magnets from the 1920's". Getting nostalgic for those "better times" Walt? Or just enjoying the reference to your actual childhood?

I like to think that think Walt was born in a landfill full of rusty WWI morphine syringes, ate nothing but newspaper and twine till he was 20, and claims he invented the charleston.

It's even more absurd when you consider that even big motor companies are now talking about AI and that we are pushing into prototyping of AI stage 3 of 5 (Motor companies only aim for 5th AI stage for cars, obviously you don't need a self-aware car, AI development for self-awareness comes at stage 6, sentience with creativity as well as fully emergent thought (not different from a human brain) is stage 7. If we were at stage 7 we'd also likely no longer would call it a machine, it is in all aspects a living thinking self-aware and HIGHLY intelligent being by then. With own unique personality and thoughts

So this is very real, and while stage 6 and 7 are far future, stage 5 is very real, and very feasible in the next 10 to 15 years. Motor companies are just not sure where a driver-less car would put them, as they could no longer sell a driver-less car to "drivers" obviously, these companies will have quite an interesting future ahead of them.

Would we really want sentient AIs hanging around? It's enough as it is to deal with other humans and all of their proclivities. I suppose the benefit is you can tell an AI to fuck off for a couple of days without destroying the relationship?

It is largely an ethical question, and technically there is no reason to push to stage 6 or 7, an AI of stage 5 would be able to handle anything you can think of already. And whether it sits in a car or in governmental function, wouldn't make much of a difference (certainly be an improvement over Trump ,p). And it's worth to mention that an AI at stage 5 would basically be the end-goal for FULL automation of our entire society. And yes, I hope I carried across that this isn't far flung future, stage 3 AI is already in prototyping, and stage 4 is being actively researched *right now*

But as for sentient AI's, if you ask me they should be forbidden and banned, self-aware yes (if shackled!) but not sentient. I think this would also direct our development in a really strange direction, because if we develop intelligence above ours we no longer have an motivational driving force to improve our own intelligence through technology or bio-engineering, or augmentation.

But yeah, sentient AI's in a synth body, if we made them look like us, would imo just be incredibly cruel and immoral thing to do, and I am not even looking at this from a religious angle, merely from humanism alone. It would be incredibly cruel (to the being we'd create) to create a sentient AI actually. Basically I'd not even allow anything like Westworld hosts to even be developed. Work/entertainment droids don't require self-awareness or sentience imo, it can just as easily be faked.

Only way I'd ever support sentient AI development is if at the end, there'd be some kind of ascension project attached to it (transfer of mind into immortal synth body with quantum tunnel based backup of our "self", basically).

My point was basically just that AI stage 5 is a real thing, and will come in the next 10 to 15 years. How it will be applied once developed.. well that is another matter entirely. And will likely take another 10 to 15 years as well.

And here it's also kinda important to remember that a car driving AI that is "perfect" at its job isn't necessarily a stage 5 AGI (general intelligence) so yeah. Though if we manage to make an AI that can drive on ALL roads and in all situations safely we are not far away from a real stage 5 AGI
