Interesting that the reviewer got it and then also got it totally wrong, or has not seen true ending E

Spoilers follow


The machine intelligence created a religious cult, Yorha (For the glory of mankind, get it?) to keep the androids in their eternal loop of conflict, doubters would get deleted, memory wiped, and reinstated, death and rebirth, eternally. The primary reason for this was so the machine intelligence would have a feedback loop creating evolutionary triggers through challenge and opposition. And it had implemented a fallback option that wiped the androids by reintegration into the machine network. Meaning they were given free-will to NOT follow the machine network for the sole reason to create opposition for their maker

The androids were made to resemble humans in order for the machines to still follow their original directive (achieve TOTAL victory over mankind). The true mind fuck is that the androids are also made from the same AI core as the machine intelligence itself. Meaning within every android exists a copy of an emergent thought construct. (And this also means AI characters can develop, flaws, emergent behavior through endless repetition).

Basically what I am saying, is that it doesn't portray religion badly at all. It portrays it exactly the way it *is*, and that is neither evil nor good, the machines just imitate it.

You kidding, right?

how about an Import ban? Recall enforcement, punishment of account owners that run these cameras by the ISP?

Or drone strike the owners of these cameras, fixes the DDOS too, though maybe don't use Tomahawks with an accuracy of 39% .. throwing rocks would have been more accurate..

Google isn't "Evil", they're simply aligning themselves with the inherent forces and rewards of a currency and trade based economic system for optimal self-maximization.

Google isn't evil, the economic system is.

Certainly this is an endemic problem in the US given that women earn 3/4 of what a man does for equivalent work. In 2017.

If that 3/4 is based on an "average" then that is totally misleading though....

And to top it off, the game has an ending that will blow your mind and your entire save data if you are not taking the prompts seriously Alone for that it is GOTY ;p

It's GOTY for deleting your save games? Bruuuh? Can I have some of whatever you just had?

Not just is it deleting your saves, but it is also part of the story. Meaning if you follow the "true ending" to the conclusion, the only valid end is that the androids memories are wiped. And since at no point this game ever goes "out of character" (including the option menu) nothing you see is actually a menu, you are editing your androids OS, and removing the OS actually kills you in-game

There haven't been many games that truly managed to integrate menus into the gameplay. For total novelty (on PC, anyway) it is GOTY by default

Utopia radically overhauls a lot of the systems in game to good effect. I started a new playthrough with a newly created race and the differences in just race creation are obvious. Totally having a blast so far, just picked up my second Ascencion perk and I've already maxed out one of the Traditions but I have been playing since ~0700 (or whenever it became available) and am smack dab in mid game.

Sounds awesome. The one thing that always made me a bit hesitant about this game is that it seemed you could fairly easily grind to a halt in the mid game, without being able to make decently quick advances against the AI. Is that still the case, do you think?

I'm very much tempted to purchase this now.

Imo you can still grind to a halt mid-game, but now you actually have something else to do while being stopped That is, factions, and the factions are pretty complex actually, you can no longer just 100% happiness everyone, and as you annex or integrate subjects, the faction issues grow in multitude and consequence. And you can not afford to ignore them, it's the only direct source of influence in the game far as I know.

I actually really like this change, that and Unity are 2 new concepts you can focus on. And the AI, by the gods.. the sector AI is no longer stupid.

What I don't like, is that factions being the only source of influence also means that if you are at very low influence you are essentially totally dead-locked.

But yeah, already made a mod for that, 3rd tier planet capital now produces 0.5 influence, and unity artifacts produce 0.25.

One other thing that bugs me hugely is that my custom mod no longer works, like at all correctly. It's like something changed fundamentally to how mods work (it worked fine in 1.4.1, and I don't mean I didn't update, I mean activating my mod doesn't activate half the file hooks... very strange. Gonna wait for some bigger modder to update to see what the deal with that is.

And well deserved, gameplay, story, atmosphere and design wise this puts Mass Effect Andromeda in the baby corner.

As I said before, to me Nier is one of the best games of this decade. If only it had launched with slightly more polish for the PC version. (Controller is 100% required imo)

And to top it off, the game has an ending that will blow your mind and your entire save data if you are not taking the prompts seriously Alone for that it is GOTY ;p

Does anyone know how I get my game when I owned it on Stardocks store (Impulse) or whatever?

you should be able to get it off their store or the client they released I believe.

I played the new update tonight with some friends and man, the game really looks good with the new Extreme graphics settings. Love how this game after 5 years still manages to shines and play so well. best of all the space RTS games. cant understand why IC still has not released a part 2.

Eh. no.. you gotta go here
store.stardock.com
And you get a steam key. Good

Not good, download link for earlier Sins links me to... GameStop which does not accept my stardock account details... but it allowed me to register my keys in their (horrific) GameStop app with a new account, all good now.

But I guess I will put all those other old games I had on Impulse on my NAS ;p

Can't fix flat, dull writing and MMO quests ;). Gotta love that "murder mystery" quest lol. For that would require essentially a new game. Basically same problem as Fallout 4 with dumb shit throughout, which Bethers give a pass since the game is moddable.

Gotta love those Angaran's getting injected with Power Ranger Villain juice.

You gotta love villain juice. 1 injection and you turn into an evil monster. You know, even comic books from the 50s had more intelligent plot devices.....

News Comments > Steam Discovery Changes Will "Fight Fake Games"
6. Re: Steam Discovery Changes Will Apr 4, 2017, 10:36 eRe4s3r
 
If you seen the Jim vid related to this, you'll know there is a lot more coming, especially how steam presents games to you.. wonder if that will be an improvement or not... so far recommendations for me have been pretty hit and miss, and discovery queue is still shoveling crap-ware in my face ;/

And Explorers being unpaid is imo also questionable, don't really see how that will fix the issues if it is also targeted by scams or paid-for-boosting or the various other methods employed by greenlight scammers.

Finally changes to trading cards are good and all, but there really needs to be a batch-sell-at-current price option...

True The worst cutscenes by far are the ones without weapons, whenever Korgan cbq ensued in a cutscene (Morda!) and (Barfight!) I nearly got a laughing attack. It looked like something from Charlie Chaplin movies.

Imo more interesting is that we will maybe see CPU's with HBM on chip in the next decade. At some point, you might well buy a CPU with 16 or 32GB HBM RAM on the die, in turn this would be extremely performance relevant, because the memory controller would have direct access to the RAM directly from the CPU l3 cache without going through PCI-E lanes or memory controller lanes, the HBM would be directly accessed via traces on the CPU, the entire ram system could be fine tuned for that CPU, achieving much faster timings and disconnecting ram from mainboards entirely.

The first one out to the market with that will win the technology race for the best cpu. And it's baffling to me that AMD with it's HBM2 abilities has not already done this, and instead opted to put such an inferior and limited memory controller on Ryzen which on top of it also starves the interconnect. Did AMD just want to compete in price? You'd think "building the best cpu" would be kinda more relevant in the long-term.

I dunno where that rumor comes from. I wonder if it's true?

Thoughts? HBM on CPU ?

Cutter said it was a race crime (black on white) and you came in to defend that.

That's really cute, but I posted here because the article wasn't talking about a pretty damn important element of the case, namely that a hate mob (of "people" hah) formed in front of her house and that hate mob did more than "ringing forcefully" and the police relocated the entire family, and that on top of that there was a pretty disgusting hate mob on twitter targeting the family and the victim.

When I ever have cause to defend Cutter you can be sure it will be a gold laced letter made of pure ivory and not a secondary quote from Quboid

Sorry but there is no mention of a group of black teens doing that in the story you linked. The victim and the family also seem to be black. From what I can tell this is not a race crime, it's sexual assault. People were ringing the doorbell in a "menacing" way. Not "Teens" not "Black Teens". "People". Also it's not true that the police did nothing, they actually relocated the family to another home.

Yeah, random people, out of nowhere, not related to her school or social contacts in any way, just HAPPEN to form a hate mob in front of her house forcing police to relocate the victim making her a victim a second time. Sure Because police relocates families for malicious "door ringing"

And I never said nor implied it was a race crime... but it seems obvious to me that it wasn't a normal pensioner meeting ringing for signatures in front of a rape victims house that forced the police to relocate an entire family....

Chicago Tribune

As news of the attack spread, people began ringing the family's doorbell and coming around the house in a menacing way, the girl's mother has told the Tribune, and police described a campaign of social media bullying against her. The taunts prompted authorities to relocate her family to another home, which police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi described as "a safe place."

Aka, really classy behavior by everyone involved. ~.~

Another black on white hate crime. Where are all the BLM and liberals now? Oh right, it's only a crime if it's a black man who's the victim.

This is stupid even by your standards. BLM is obviously irrelevant here, and what liberals are saying this isn't a crime?

Far be it for me to defend Cutter, but it's clear you did not google the twitter BS that was going on after the crime, defending the rapists was the mildest form of criminal idiocy visible there. A mob of black teens formed in front of victims house shouting obscenities and mocking her and her family and this continued in school and for many days after. Police and school did nothing about that.

Has nothing directly to do with BLM or politics, sure. But it is still a sign that something is going VERY wrong in Detroit.

Detroit? Its happening the world over, man. Its in fashion to hate on whitey no matter where you are.

Eh, I actually meant to type Chicago (where this event took place)

I wonder why I thought of Detroit, weird.

But it sure isn't happening "everywhere". Media presence influences how we perceive crime and hotspots that are often shown shift our perception that there is more crime, when there really is not. The crimes just get more scandalous and evil, more brutal and brutalized. And they get a longer disgusting tail, with more and more social decay showing. 68% of blacks go to jail before they are 30, there is something very wrong with that and the solution to that isn't to put them all in jail.

But who am I to complain, in Germany we got different problems
