ROM Hacking Discussion / Re: How to increase interest in hacking?

This thread makes me sad on so many levels.

Gaming Discussion / Re: XBox dies as Microsoft exits console market
« on: March 03, 2016, 02:11:24 pm »
I absolutely would be all for "levels" when it came to the power of a console setup, what I dont want is a Platinum RAM, and bronze level everything else, If im going to have to customize a console I want it all on one level, preferably in one expansion pak/kit, I shouldn't have to hunt down multiple parts to make my console games work.

Who says that this will be the case? Still far too little info to say anything about what this will actually mean IMO. There is a large span of options of what this could be, and little of them are new. It could be small add-ons (Sega 32X, Sega CD, N64 RAM expansion,...), it could be yearly refreshes of the hardware (GBC, NDSi, new 3DS, Apple devices) or it could just be a unified software platform to use with random PC hardware. It's impossible to tell what it'll be, but the differences between those options are enormous. So, let's hold back with the judgements for now and wait and see.

All I'm definitely seeing that affects me for now is that a ton of more games will have PC ports instead of being console exclusive, FUCK YEAH.  :beer:

Gaming Discussion / Re: Young Conker Hololens

They could have taken ANY other Rare character for the presentation. It's hard to believe how little they understand the gaming fanbase if they think Conker was the appropiate pick to turn into a kiddified Looney Toons character.

Right, you totally didn't just say that a free college education will lead to a country of useless slobs who can't do real work.  ::)

Oh right, you didn't use those words so that's totally not what you said because reasons. Not going to get dragged into a quote war, I'll let everyone interpret your statements by themselves.

Most conservative worries boil down to envy. Someone else is getting something for free or easier than they did "WE NEED TO STOP THIS OR OUR SOCIETY CRUMBLES".

Pathetic.

Countries with multiple heads of states, such as UK, Germany or Switzerland, seems to do overall better than countries with a single head of state such as the US or France.

If you are refering to the president in Germany and the queen in the UK, those second heads of state really only have ceremonial functions. Politically they mean practically nothing.

Site Talk / Re: Game Reviews -> Game Descriptions?
« on: February 28, 2016, 02:37:35 am »
Are game descriptions from Wikipedia or Mobygames public domain? Maybe we could remove all the existing ones and somehow semi-automatically copy a lot of those over here so the database doesn't start out with no game descriptions at all for everything older than a week.

XCOM2 was as good as expected. Well at least gameplay wise. In technical terms the game's a disaster. If you liked the first, get the second, once they put out three or four patches...

Also done with Mordheim. I put up a review on steam: http://steamcommunity.com/id/kaioshin62/recommended/276810/
I didn't beat it, but I've got my fill.

Next up I definitely need to find something not turn-based...

General Discussion / Re: #WTFU (Where's the Fair Use?)
« on: February 27, 2016, 02:45:31 am »
How to fix it though? With millions of new videos every day (I'm guessing YT is in such areas of activity now) they'd need thousands of people overseeing copyright notices to weed out the false claims from the proper ones.

The only thing I can think of that might help is if a few big youtubers who were being hit unfairly sue the claimants for a large sum in compensation and win in court. So there is precedence that false claims can get very expensive. Maybe that will convince copyright holders to actually check what they claim instead of just blanket striking every video that comes up related to their search terms.

Gaming Discussion / Re: Which Megami Tensei game is more kid-friendly?
« on: February 26, 2016, 05:11:25 pm »
Just skip through the dialoges, there is only 20 lines of dialoge for every 5 hours of gameplay anyway in those games.

Demikids has terrible gameplay, you can basically walk through the game using autobattle permanently.

Watch that video, and do some research on "machine learning".  This industry is BOOMING right now.  Robots can do so much more than monotone repetitive tasks.  You're thinking of 1990s automation.  2030s automation will be an entirely different beast.


I'm sorry, but I teached courses on machine learning at the university... Machine learning is awesome, but what you are thinking of is still SciFi. It will be something else in 15 years but I'm talking about jobs today. You can make a robot with machine learning do one task very well, but there is still no way to link together several complex tasks to make them do ANY kind of real thinking. By the way, the algorithms used in those fancy breakthrough documentaries and IBM Watson ads they are flooding the airwaves with are all from the 70s. Back in the day there just wasn't the computing power to use them well, because they are basically based on brute force iterating through training datasets millions of times. I.E. they are actually quite stupid and people more or less randomly stumble over new ways to actually use them.

213
Optimism won't change the fact that most of the good jobs we used to have were replaced by robots

No job that can be done by a robot can be considered "good" by any definition of the word. Robots do monotone, repetetive tasks. Yes, even today. I don't wish such a job on anyone.

General Discussion / Re: Did J.J. Abrams ruin Star Trek?
« on: February 18, 2016, 02:00:40 pm »
If these movies hadn't been so successful they wouldn't have finally greenlit a new Trek TV show. So at the very least fans should be grateful for that. The first movie was a great action movie. The Trek movies after the (almost universally considered one of the worst entries in the franchise) first were all more action oriented than the TV shows. It's cinema, few people would go to see some talking heads debate AI rights for 2 hours or something. The Abrams movies follow in those footsteps. It doesn't diminish TV Trek, it's just another angle at the universe.

I agree that the second movie was a big step down, but mostly because it was too convuluted. Production wise it was top notch again. It wasn't terrible by any means, it just had much more glaring weaknesses than the first.

I also agree that the trailer for the third movie was shit (except for the bit Bones getting left alone to die, that will become a classic scene). But Simon Pegg already said it doesn't represent the movie too well. Let's not assume the worst and put it on a shitty marketing department for now.

Nothing was ruined in any case.

I want to go see it but I'm not sure I'll find the time. Not a big Deadpool fan (yet?) but I read very good things.

Victoly down to page 3? What is this outrage!  :'(

I beat Rise of the Tomb Raider yesterday. It's even better than the already great last one. I'm glad the stupid XBone time exclusivity only lasted 3 months or so.

Next up: Mordheim & XCOM 2.

And if that's the case, what's the value in differentiating between "doom metal"/"black metal"/"death metal" when nobody outside of elitists are going to know what the difference is and you have to explain the difference every time you use the terms?


No one outside elitists? Anyone who actually listens to it will be able to tell the 3 apart easily and will thus gain value from the categorization. Who doesn't gain value from those terms are those who won't listen to it in the first place because they have no interest in it. So they don't have to care either way. Those are super valuable labels, it has nothing to do with elitism.

Gaming Discussion / Re: Anyone feel the PS1 graphics had it's charm?
« on: January 24, 2016, 06:35:04 am »
I think the only one still bothering with CGI intros and outros are Blizzard. But they put a shitton of money into those clips and there are only one or two more during the campaigns (and ironically they look better than the footage from the Warcraft movie). In general CGI movies are rare as hell nowadays. With good reason, the video compression/fixed resolution is enough to make them noticably look worse than ingame footage, regardless of how many detail is put into the scenes.

What? In-engine cutscenes are way more popular nowadays than CGI - especially from big budget titles.

Come on now, don't destroy the preconceptions of the "modern gaming sucks" haters who stopped playing new games in 2005.
