News Roundups: Crash REALLY IS Harder! + Half-life 3 Would Have Disappointed + First Robot Quits Life

Activision admits officially that, YES Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy is harder than the original. Half-life writer Marc Laidlaw says Half-life 3 never would have had a satisfying ending anyway and he probably wouldn't even want to work on it. A new first in robotics: the first robot suicide. Plus, Battlegrounds reaches new heights of popularity, Kingdom Hearts 3 developers conflict about who caused the long development time, Destiny 2 beta kicks off, Super Mario Maker 64 is here and probably being DMCAed any minute now, that Last of Us shout-out in Game of Thrones was intentional, also lots of people watched Game of Thrones, Dunkirk is getting great reviews, and scientists have found weird radio signals coming from a nearby star.

    Humans: Hey, is anyone else out there? Just wondering. 

    Aliens: Hey, is anyone else out there? Just wondering. 

    Humans: HOLY SHIT THEY'RE COMING TO MURDER US

      Can you blame humans for thinking that though? We've seen what happens when more advanced people meet less advanced ones countless times in our history.

      @DarkTempler7 I'd assume aliens that can travel >4.3 light years are more civilized than Renaissance-era white people.

      We do only have our own people to go on. Plus what would they gain from any other interaction with us?

      @DarkTempler7 1. I'd like to think greedy plundering is an exclusively human flaw and advanced societies don't do that. 

      2. The same things we have to gain from meeting them. Technological advances, philosophical ideas, theories about the universe, alliances against bigger threats if there are any.

      I find the first part doubtful since animals are shown to carry out similar behavior. As to the second, you're assuming that they have any use for anything that comes from us. It's more likely that if they don't want our planet, they'll consider us beneath their notice and move on. Mind you, this is all theoretical after all. It's entirely possible that we're both wrong about what might happen.

      @DarkTempler7 These conversations of ours are getting tough to keep track of. 


      Animals do it for survival and ensuring growth for their kind. Humans know that when we do it, it's only harming ourselves and the environment. Still, if they ARE like us, then their leaders would want to plunder the Earth while the vast majority of them are against it. But still, I say think of what we'd do if we got to them first. We wouldn't invade for the sake of invading, and we wouldn't forget they exist either. We'd try to open communications but still be fearful.


      That's assuming any aliens are as advanced as us. Given the crazy set of coincidences (Or destiny, or God's plan, or whatever it is) that allowed us to come into being and survive this long, it's improbable that there are any aliens who evolved faster than us within a range we can communicate with. Read up on the Fermi Paradox. It's intriguing.

    I use to hate my job, now I have a new job and it is going well.  

    Change is good, at least this time.
