  1. Holy sh...cow! I'm going to include the whole clip for context, but specifically check out the clothing simulation at 21:35 : Less dev time to organise, looks a lot better, *and* is faster than traditional methods? CIG don't hire programmers - they hire wizards.

    Everything in it's right place.

    Oddly enough, I really liked it the first time I heard it, but got very very sick of it within a week. That undoubtably had a lot to do with the media oversaturating the hell out of it (as usual), but I was already starting to be get annoyed with it by my third listen.

    Green Room non-Googleable Music Quiz Game.

    Sorry about that, dude. That vid just popped up in my feed this morning, and I thought folks here might like it. Seems to be in the gestalt atm.

    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    Ok, so joking aside... That's some very impressive fluidity. And running untethered from its own internal power reserves, too.

    how crap is this government ?

    Alas, it's pretty typical of the state of (at least right wing) politics atm. Our mob of religitards look to the US and think they can play that game too. BTW: How in hell did we manage to end up with a majority of the Mound being extreme churchies, when 90% or so of Aus is either unaffiliated or atheist? Does it not bother anyone else that these fucknuts are basing their policies on "God will fix it"; "God hates fags"; and even "Let the Reckoning come!" - rather than trying to avoid driving the planet into a cliff or treating people like people?

    Canada gets high

    Eh... Good luck to 'em. I haven't inhaled/imbibed/ingested any for 25 years and haven't missed it. For all that the few hours was nice, it made me feel like my brain was wrapped in cotton wool for days afterward. I like thinking.

    Gretna. They dropped the 'n'. Otherwise spot on!

    https://www.abc12.com/content/news/Flint-schools-receive-water-stations-filtration-systems-from-billionaire-Elon-Musk-495276151.html Flint, in Michigan USA, has had poisoned water since 2015. FINALLY someone got off their arse to help them out. Was it the government? Be serious. It was Elon Musk. Seriously, that dude does have some gnarly bad points (treatment of employees, defaming hero cave divers, and wild public overstatements mostly), but he has some awesome ones too.
  10. Full screen, max rez, and you're probably going to want to watch it more than once. Yes, there are still a couple of issues (most notably with Gary Oldman's character animation, imho) but I think the majority is cinema quality. And this is scheduled for release next year! Ahem. Pardon me for not taking "next year" as carved-in-stone gospel. That is the single-player component, though, which is inherently less bug-prone than MMO/MP, and there are an awful lot of really good people working for them, so "close" is very believable. Expect linkage for the full Citcon reel shortly. The official upload is not up yet. For now, I'll leave you with this shot (planets are 1/10th scale - it will take you a *long* time to circumnavigate a world): Edit: Official reel being a bit tardy about showing up, I have a little unofficial footage of the CIG Citcon SC gameplay of stuff courtesy of Noobifier: [lower rez than the trailer and an odd ratio, but still good] (spot the above shot in the clip)

    Very unwell family

    Sympathies, Chris. Not a damned thing I can do for you, and I really don't want to do the "thoughts and prayers" insincere crap. In all probability, I'm only about a decade behind you.

    I was not. Oh, that's delicious! Over it now. Plenty o' people got it worse than I do.

    my politics

    Reaction for that. But seriously, "As it harm none, do as thou wilt" - ie: there should be no bans on anything unless others suffer for it. Of course you still get to argue about what suffering is and what qualifies as people. Re the commented line: Personally, I think you're free to believe whatever kooky shit you think, but if you poison kids' minds with it you're deserving of child abuse charges.

    What's on your mind?

    OMM: There are times that I really want the medical/prosthetic industry to hurry up and get those Cyberpunk doodads finished already. I mean, it's understandable that I'd like eyes that work without out-of-focus double images, ears that work period (and without tinnitus would be nice), a sense of balance that didn't occasionally have bed spins even when standing up, and legs that reliably picked up their feet. Oh, and shoulders that didn't scream at me. Right? What's a little less obvious perhaps is that, by the end of winter, I'm ready to sign a diabolic pact to fix the always-cold spot on my side and shut up the temperature sensors that insist they're hot (and therefore release sweat) despite the skin being cold to touch and even occasionally blue. That shit gets really fucking tiresome. </whinge> OK, sorry 'bout that. Nobody wants to hear that. After 25 years of this shit I've kinda had enough.
