What most are most likely thinking about on the subject.  Wink

A more serious post will come later, I promise.

So Civilization: Beyond Earth has been announced.  As someone who, admittedly, doesn't play many turn-based 4X games, yet have play Alpha Centauri, I'm actually looking forward to this one.

What I want to talk about, though, is the theological question the game brings up as a gameplay mechanic: How does a human society react to colonizing an alien world?
Do we try to be more in tune with the new world, and use advanced genetic engineering to actually become part of the local wilderness?
Do we advance our technology to the point where we become immune to whatever environment we find ourselves in, even if it means giving up our flesh?
Or do we try to maintain our humanity, and try to force our new home to be more in line as something that we know can sustain us?

What are your thoughts on the matter?  Do you guys think there is one that we are headed for in particular?  Or do you think it's a gross oversimplification of our possible future?

You guys hear the story about Atari burying thousands of unsold copies of E.T - The Extra Terrestrial in a New Mexico landfill?  Well, they've been dug back up as part of a video commentary about the changing video game industry landscape.

And the workers promptly get poisoning from touching toxically bad games.  Tongue
413  Community / Off-Topic / Re: Do your game characters tend to be your gender or opposite gender? on: April 26, 2014, 02:22:46 PM
Well... Compared to that, my reason's pretty tame: I like playing me, or at least a herofied version, so I pretty much exclusively play male.  Don't get me wrong, I've tried playing female, but my brain felt too awkward doing it.  Also, I could only watch the /dance animation in Firefall so many times before feeling dirty.  Tongue

That said, if it's a fixed character for a class, such as League of Legends, then I have much less problem with it.  And the number of screenshots I have of XCOM Valkyries should show that I have no problem with women in games. 

I just prefer playing male.

Pentagon shows off new robot

In case some of you haven't fed your robophobia today.  Tongue

People are far more appropriate a source of anxiety then tools they make, says I.

Plus, seriously, it's a lift bot. It's not the terminator. It can't mow a lawn, nevermind mow down combatants. I effin' despise technophobia, especially when it's informed by pop culture. Learn something ye citizens of the world, then we can talk.

Yeah.  Sad, innit?  Sort of like when that mule-ish robot came out, and people were making comments about the "coming apocalypse", even when it looked like you could trip the thing with a strong rope.

*sigh* I really hope that TALOs armor does well.  As long as someone's actually inside, I feel people would accept robotics more.

Went to see Cap America again with my bro.  Improved theater experience is an improvement, and he had a blast.  So yeah, if you haven't yet, go see it.

Really, if there's one thing I still have a hang-up about, it's how in superhero movies that military equipment only exists to blow up.

Samples.
Even an ounce of an otherwise unknown alloy would be enough.
Don't sell the whole tank. Just whet some appetites first.

Hey, y'know how in speculative fiction that there's always "re-discovered technology of a lost age"?  And such technology usually is central to a story?
