I thoroughly enjoyed TWAU and I never really knew if I would (I got it at a deep discount). I didn't know anything about the story or anything of the lore but I was completely pulled in after the first episode. I hope that they take their time and do the sequel well.

She probably suffered from mental illness and may have been under the influence.
From the same LA TIMES article, apparently she was under the influence:

Toxicologists later found traces of methamphetamine and marijuana in her body.

so all our speculations turned out to be true. the lidar DID see the woman, WELL in advance of the crash, but stupid human politics yet again get in the way of practicality. why would you EVER disable an EMERGENCY braking feature?
This is from the LA Times:

The NTSB listed three reasons the brakes were not applied before the fatal crash:

  • Uber had chosen to switch off the collision avoidance and automatic emergency braking systems that are built into commercially sold versions of the 2017 Volvo XC90 test vehicle. Uber did that whenever its own driverless robot system was switched on — otherwise, the two systems would conflict.

  • However, Uber also disabled its own emergency braking function whenever the test car was under driverless computer control, “to reduce potential for erratic behavior.”

  • Uber had expected the test driver to both take control of the vehicle at a moment’s notice, while also monitoring the robot car’s performance on a center-console mounted screen. Dashcam video showed the driver looking toward the center console seconds before the crash. The driver applied the brakes only after the woman had been hit at 39 mph."

    Hell, it's been 20 years since I played this! Gonna install and play through it again, can't remember a damn thing about the single player so it should be all new to me again! I think I remember it was a VERY long game and the AI was actually pretty damn good too? You can even play bot matches and you'll see some flashes of how Unreal Tournament came to be.

    Why is Hellblade on the top 10? Didn't it come out months ago? I've heard it's a pretty good game but, what made it so popular now? Did it go on sale or something?

    With a wide array of weapons, vehicles and strange powers, Walker sets off to take down the tyrannical Authority.

    So it has the same plot as the first one?
    What's weird is that at the end of the first game you located all the rest of the 'Arks' supposedly on the planet (the game made it seem like alot) to help rebuild civilization. How the HELL are you supposed to be the LAST RANGER (Ark survivor?) or is Walker a descendant of the Ark survivors? And if, in fact, all the Ark survivors did get wiped out... what the hell happened?

    If you need to get your feet involved to game you're doing it wrong.
    Having only one usable foot and hand as a gamer, I might disagree with you. I can't pony up the money for the KS but, IF it goes into production, I might grab one; I could probably use it *shrug*

    "Dive headfirst into a dystopian world devoid of society, law, and order. RAGE 2 brings together a true open world FPS experience where you can go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode everything."
    So they mean it's going to be almost exactly like 'Mad Max' the game in almost every way, seeing as Avalanche made 'Mad Max' the game, except it will be a FPS?

    Gotcha.

    You can come up with many reasons why the opposite is true. Ultimately it doesn't matter. For me I do both and always have. It just depends on what I feel like at the time. I don't care what the platform is, a good game is a good game. Fook it.

    Case in point, I'm currently trying my BEST to play the PC version of 'Saints Row 2'. Well the PC version is a bit busted unfortunately. Apparently CD Projekt wasn't up to the task of porting this game to PC because it is fucking BROKEN in certain aspects. I have read that the console version plays beautifully, YIPPEE

    All I know is that this won't work. Because the first thing they have you do is sign a paper saying this is the starting cost, but we'll just add whatever we feel is needed and you have to eat it.

    I went a few years back and after everything was all side and done I payed and while paying was told by 3 different billers/admins that I was paying in full. 2 months latter I got another bill that was double what I had paid. Saying I owed this too because they had a doctor look at a chart for a consult. When you base cost off what you feel like charging and don't fix rates or have enforced standards of service this happens a lot.
    PREACH

    During my stroke a doctor would walk into my room at a random time during the day. They were VERY polite and seemed OH SO concerned about my well-being.

    Later, when I saw my amazing hospital bill, I noticed that EACH doctor that stuck they're head inside my room (I was in physical therapy for over 1 and a half months learning to walk again) cost me 250 dollars. When they changed my room from ICU to general pop the nurse wheeling me to my new room said, "Carry you're urine bottle with you. If you don't they'll charge you for a new one."

    So Slim, if you had traditional insurance, you'd probably be paying even more.

    FUCK NO! I have been blind-sided for the past 3 years after my stroke with medical bills on Medicare. Telling me the price now is just foreplay and I guarantee I'm still paying for the lube.
