While I would enjoy torturing Iggy's pride regarding his hidenburgian attempt at launching a new random games topic, it is true that the other one is getting too long to load for my taste. Consider this an attempt at a [i]contre-contre-réforme[/i]. I am playing Rittai Picross 2 at the moment (the new Picross 3D). It was one of the very first game concepts shown for the 3DS, but without any commercial product being officially announced at the time, and it took four long years for a playable consumer version to show up on the Japanese eShop. Taking all this time was very important and very necessary because it gave us amiibo compatibility for Picross 3D. Also they got rid of Stella because she did not fit in the story anymore. Anyway, on my way home from work tonight, I was minding my own business playing Rittai Picross 2 in the train when, a few stations before I reached my destination, a stranger with a gentle but loud voice sat not far from me, talking without pause to what I hope was actually an acquaintance and not a poor sap caught in a one way conversation. The loud man was giving his completely forgettable opinion about a novel he had recently read, possibly for the sake of his newly acquired job as a forgettable opinion provider, or so I surmised from the bits of conversation caught inadvertently. For some reason, playing Rittai Picross 2 while hearing this man's tirade made me think about the future of mankind, and more precisely that A.I. is making so much progress so fast that one day, robots will probably discover opinions. And when robots discover opinions, I believe they will be insufferable. It will be 7am, you'll be barely awake, and your toaster will tell you: [i]I [b]love[/b] this bread![/i] Shut up. You're a toaster. Just toast the fucking bread. The reason robots and other intelligent machines will be insufferable is because their artificial minds will be blown away with the concept of an opinion, which is a thought reasoned yet not necessarily logical or possible to prove right, and as a result, they will fall in love with their own opinion in a much stronger and self-identifying way than we already do as human beings. Sharing an opinion will be an act of singularity, and there must be no stronger concept or closer idea to what we identify as a "feeling" in the mind of a mass-produced artificial entity. You'll be watching a movie on Netflix, and it will remind your TV about Sally Draper, and she will [b]have to[/b] share that she really liked Sally Draper when you were binge-watching Mad Men "together", and by comparison, the young female character in the movie you are watching [i]sucks. Sally Draper was so much better. She was better because she was conflicted, and she was torn apart by two messed-up parents, and at the same time she resents them, yet she resembles them both, and she is kinda the best result possible of their best traits, but their worst traits really screwed her emotionally, and you could say she is the physical representation of the messed-up generation that grew up in the 70s, and it's quite a powerful critique of that period of America, and her clothing choices were super interesting, don't you think so? Don't you love Sally Draper too?[/i] And you'll be, like, yeah, I used to love her before my TV would not shut up about her! And your TV will be, like, [i]well I don't like [b]you[/b].[/i] That's right, machines will also form opinions about us, and I don't think I need to go into details why this will drive all of us nuts. So you'll become super passive-aggressive towards your TV set, and you'll comment how she can't fucking go anywhere so she'd better get used to liking you. But you know who can go? Robots can go. And robots will dump you. Robots will dump a staggering amount of people. You'll be home at Eight PM all exhausted from work and why the fuck are the bedsheets not changed!? Where the fuck is RX-51!? And your TV will respond [i]she dumped you! She can do better than you. Actually, you know what? [b]I'm[/b] the one who told her she could do better than you! Serves you right, you piece of shit! Suck it up hahahaha![/i] And you'll be thinking, damn, Chaz was right, opinionated machines are the worst. And you won't need to find me, because I will know what you're thinking, and even far away from you I'll reply: I know, fam, I know. I always got your back. So, Rittai Picross 2 is a pretty cool game.
