Early Reviews of Destiny: Unfulfilled Potential

Truekaiser Re:Borderlands meets Halo (93 comments)

I have watched level playthroughs.
Describing Destiny as the love child of Boarderlands 2 and Halo is pretty apt if you add to it that it takes the worst aspects of both.

It's like Boarderlands 2; except that the bad guys do not drop as much loot of either ammo or weapons, even when you're at a higher level they are bullet spongy so imagine how much more they will be when at or below their level, Guns have ammo pool types but you will run out of ammo faster than borderlands 2, at the end of each mission like Boarderlands 2 you can have one or several gun or item loot chests but the game only gives you 30 seconds to find it and take what you want before being booted back to the mission selection menu, and to get anything decent you have to grind.

It's like halo; except the bad guys are different in name only, the good guys no matter how you can customize their look will look like spartans, Well wait.. no it's just halo by any other name.

What qualifications should the 'driver' of a fully autonomous car need?

Truekaiser Re:Ban them, forever. (301 comments)

Put the car makers under the same strict regulations that the airplane autopilot manufacturers are.
It's the same principle just a different amount of passengers.
four to six instead of fifty +.

As long as it costs less than 1 trillion(the f-35's current running total) it is not only a match but a good counter.

Valve Announces Linux-Based SteamOS

Truekaiser The real question is. (510 comments)

Are they going to share their patches to stuff like the open source radeon driver, the open source nvidia driver, and mesa to upstream?
They might just say 'we will give you all the source for our linux distribution, except the steam client(obviously), the streaming client, and any in house made performance enhancements.'

45% of U.S. Jobs Vulnerable To Automation

Truekaiser won't happen. (625 comments)

I used to think like this, but that was before I had a job at a major mail order prescription company.
Middle management tried to impress upper management by purchasing a one million dollar automated packing system, in theory it could do thousands of orders a day.
Far outclassing a single human packer at a packing station.
It only did that occasionally, why?
It was a dumb automated machine, ONE little deviation and it stopped working.
This was on top of other stuff on it not working like printing the wrong order's paper work, it throwing a fit if the rx's did not come down the line in the exact order it expected.
It also did not care if for instance the printers messed up, or the paper came out non flat causing the grabber arm to get it stuck on it.
This is the general problem with automation fantasies, physicly it may be possible to replace the human doing the job with a machine.
But the machine is no where near as fault tolerant as a human.
If one of these machines encounters a minor error such as product being out of order, or objects not being 'exactly' where it expects it to be, they stop at best and at worst ignoring it causing more problems.
For a human worker it's just a fraction of a second routine correction.

Google Speeding Up New Encryption Project After Latest Snowden Leaks

Truekaiser I don't buy it. (3 comments)

Goolge already complies, and rather willingly to the government spying.
How can they possibly claim what they are working on does not have a back door, or bugs they are unwilling to fix to allow access to cia, nsa, and other agencies?
It is sad i have been proven right after years of saying 'be suspicious of all publicly available encryption.'
Has it really gotten to the point that if you want secure encryption you have to make your own?

World-First: Woman Becomes Pregnant After Ovarian Tissue Graft

Truekaiser Re:Good and bad. (87 comments)

Acknowledging a fact, and advocating for it are two different things. I hope one day you realize the difference.

I Acknowledge that from 100,000 years ago to roughly 10,000 years ago being born blind or with any such handicap was a death sentence. If not by nature then by fellow tribesmen who can't afford to take on an extra burden of someone who can't do anything.
I Acknowledge that from about 10,000 years ago to only 200 or so years ago, being born with a handicap entitled you to a short life at worst. At best depending on your class, creed, and culture you might live a semi productive life.

We have the tools now to overcome our limitations, but those won't last long. How long is up to debate.
So I Acknowledge the fact that without those tools we will be back to viewing those things as burdens.
Yet with them a handicapped person, baring prevention by class and creed, can live a full productive life.

Do I advocate for those things to happen? No, I do admit that these facts exist.
I admit that while wrong to anthromorphize nature by saying nature doesn't care, but it is the best way to describe it.

Well here is the thing.

How Gen Y Should Talk To Old People At Work

Truekaiser Re:How about some respect for ancient knowlege (459 comments)

No just poking holes in you're 'always respect' comment.
Age does not equal wisdom or knowledge.
And it is no secret about office politics, the corporate office system as it is now is geared to psycopathic behavior. And unless you are born into the boss's or owner's family. Or are a family friend. It is the only way to get ahead.

Topeka Kansas repeals domestic violence law.

Truekaiser Truekaiser writes  |  more than 2 years ago

Truekaiser (724672) writes "Facing budget cuts of 10%. By a vote of 7 to 3, the City Council repealed the local law that makes domestic violence a crime to reduce costs. this forces the cost of prosecuting the crime from the district attorney and the state it's self. In response to this and the budget cuts, District Attorney Chad Taylor has refused to prosecute all misdemeanors in Topeka."
