random thought: has Nintendo ever made a 3DS that looks like a Pokedex? because that seems like a GOLDMINE waiting to happen...

@  Nevermore : (21 September 2018 - 03:23 AM)

Wiigii! Titans Return Grotusque for only 60 Euros (actually 70 but I somehow had an eBay gift card for reasons that escape me) with free shipping from within my own country!

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2018 - 03:02 AM)

That was the plan for Predators too with the Super Predators.

@  Waspinator : (21 September 2018 - 01:46 AM)

So, apparently in the new Predator movie, the Predators don't hunt us for honor or the challenge or anything like that, but because they're stealing human DNA to modify themselves. Congrats Hollywood, on making a monster far less cool and scary.

@  Pennpenn : (20 September 2018 - 08:46 AM)

I only started playing it recently so I don't know what it was like before. Actually surprised they haven't finished the story yet. Then again, unless they introduce another world it's pretty much just Maleficent and whatever the Foretellers are playing at left.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 September 2018 - 08:30 AM)

Geeze.. I reloaded up Kingdom Hearts X for the first time in a long time. That game has massivily inflated from when I played it when it first launced in the US.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 09:07 AM)

It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 04:33 AM)

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 04:31 AM)

What game PennPenn

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 03:13 AM)

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 08:44 PM)

I know. I'm back to the classic purple for the first time since the comic theme was introduced.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 08:32 PM)

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 05:36 PM)

Is something going on? I'm missing the buttons to go to the newest post and there's no banner for the forum list, it just says "logo" in the corner.

@  Lazy Garou : (11 September 2018 - 09:30 PM)

cleaning up, mostly.but the little plastic piece where the power cable hooked up was broken. That I managed to put back together.

@  Patch : (11 September 2018 - 04:48 PM)

So he also has White Castle-like qualities?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 September 2018 - 02:23 PM)

Just keep him away from the plumbing, he's really hard on the pipes.

@  RichardT1977 : (11 September 2018 - 01:22 PM)

Overlord has some castle-like qualities to him

@  wonko the sane? : (11 September 2018 - 12:15 PM)

Fix it, like, found a working power adaptor, or fix it like: there was saudering involved.

@  Lazy Garou : (11 September 2018 - 11:58 AM)

that feeling when you fix something and works like a dream. we now have a working snes in my house and I have tested 10 games on it and they all work.

@  Arazyr : (11 September 2018 - 10:44 AM)

...Now I want a Transformer that turns into a castle.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 September 2018 - 09:37 AM)

You should be careful man, lots of allsparkers life in castle law states. It's a good way to get shot you know.

There's been consistently good sc-fi flicks; most just fly under the radar as lower-budget or indie pictures

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 September 2018 - 09:28 PM)

If you can forget about that garbage Ghost in the Shell feature...

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 September 2018 - 09:27 PM)

Upgrade is a GREAT dark sci fi throwback film. Kind of feels like the genre has been nailing some good stuff after a LONG time of drek

@  Sabrblade : (10 September 2018 - 06:34 PM)

Hey, Steve is a Vehicon!

@  abates : (10 September 2018 - 04:44 PM)

I thought it was spelled "Stege".

@  Arazyr : (10 September 2018 - 02:10 PM)

So, "I before E, except after Siege"? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 September 2018 - 01:59 PM)

Memorandum to all: the word "siege" is spelled with the "i" before the "e".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (08 September 2018 - 12:55 PM)

Happy birthday to Star Trek and Star Trek: The Animated Series!

Final Fantasy: The Movie: The Game: Pocket Edition HD Boogaloo

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (07 September 2018 - 01:03 AM)

Funny thing is, I think the pocket edition graphics give the game more personality.

@  MEDdMI : (06 September 2018 - 11:10 PM)

Final Finception

@  Waspinator : (06 September 2018 - 10:29 PM)

They've made a PS4 version of Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition. For those keeping score, it's the PS4 version of a smartphone version of a PS4 game.

@  wonko the sane? : (05 September 2018 - 09:20 PM)

Ah HA! turns out the trick to installing the rift software was to run it as an admin. Stupid windows 10.

@  wonko the sane? : (05 September 2018 - 04:58 PM)

Awright! I got the display port working! Which means I can now connect my occulus rift!

@  MEDdMI : (04 September 2018 - 10:38 PM)

Surprised there is no thread for this game yet.

 

I picked it up this weekend, and good lord is it gorgeous.

 

 

I'm only like 4-5 scenes into the game, and I'm really digging it, it's basically a Choose your own adventure book brought to the gaming sphere.

 

I am digging it.

I've been watching the Super Best Friends play it and it's embarrassingly bad just like all Cage's other work. He takes an interesting sci-fi concept, completely does nothing with it, and turns it into a weird, offensive race metaphor that just co-opts language and quotes from African-American struggles. The writing is just straight-up dumb too. There's a bit where the rebel robot goes around freeing his fellow robots, but the way he does it seems to imply he's literally reprogramming them. Is that even free will? The game sure doesn't seem to care about explaining it.


PM me if you're bored!

I have only been playing for about three hours, but I have some thoughts...

 

From a story perspective I think it was a mistake to give them sapient emotions right from the start. There is no gradual process for them to evolve giving justification for the other characters in the story to still think of them as programmed machines instead of just ignoring them as free thinking agents.

 

From an economic standpoint it seems like an insanely horrible idea to program your machines to feel pain, emotions, self identity and sense of preservation. The first android we are introduced to went berserk and killed people when it found out it was going to be replaced with a better model and didn't want to be killed. Maybe you want to take it a step down from that level of A.I. programming. It was like when they went crazy with phone sizes and they were making them to small so they had to go back to a size slighter larger. 

 

And, oh my gosh, why wouldn't you deactivate them before throwing them into a junk yard so they are not trying to crawl back out like a pit of zombies screaming that they don't want to die? At least it will save on the manpower of needing someone there with a shovel to constantly push them back into the pit. Someone needs to teach them how to recycle...

The name also seems very misleading. "Becoming human" implies a process occurring over time. They seem pretty much human right now, only polite ones. I don't see how they can become anymore human at this point of the game.

 

Also, why would the police department treat death by androids as murder investigations? They are machines, equipment, more likely it would be treated as defective, or at least glitched, that would be deemed an accident. I image if this continued there would be a total recall of the model of android rather then just arresting the offending ones.

 

Further more, why would an android need to be interrogated rather then just being deactivated and having it's memory banks searched? Why create a machine that law enforcement have to reason with and persuade to get information out of it? And why create a machine that can feel stress to the point it can chose to self-destruct? And how come I haven't seen any other android that is clearly under stress use this self-destruct feature? Like all those androids in the zombie pit screaming to be killed?

Congrats Soft Snow.  You've put more thought into this game then David Cage did.

 

Ironbite-I'd stop thinking about it right now.
