    I'm sure most of you have seen this, but this looks too good to be true, not to mention I don't believe anything this man says. The video must have been scripted to death, because I can't imagine any of it actually happening otherwise. Imagine telling the kid to jump in the water, or pushing him in, or cursing him out, or having the girl flash her boobs to him.

    Anyway, just wondering if anyone else had any thoughts on how much of this video is actually possible.

    Where is the link to that pre-release Oblivion hype video when you need it?
    The one where they showed off the aaaaaawesome Radiant AI with almost lifelike NPCs. We know how it turned out. And isn't that new thing made by Molyneux? We know what kind of hype-abuser he is, so... meh.

    Peter Molyneaux is a fucking liar. Just read the shit he said about B&W before it was released, about how super intelligent the AI is. Read what he said about Fable before it was released. You can't trust the man, he's a fucking bullshit hype tornado.

    Yeah, I know. I just wonder how much can actually be done with the technology. Even if it's not to the extent of the video. I thought Project Natal was simply an over-hyped motion sensor, not some virtual interaction system.

    I bet that AI isn't any smarter than a standard chatbot and only knows a few scripted things, not more.

    Molyneux is a genius but he lost his way since he went multiplatform.

    [Intelligence/Wisdom/Insight] So he used to make good games?

    [Insight] Something tells me you don't like Molyneux.

    I think I heard that the demonstration was entirely scripted and the ai only reacts to certain keywords and the tone of your voice

    Even if it weren't scripted and hyped up, who would fucking buy this?

    It puts you in the role of a douchebag drawing pictures for your TV.

    But that's not a game. That's just real life.

    Jessica Chobot also got her hands on Milo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ji_1UQU--ig
    A much better presentation.

    Anyways, who exactly is the market for this? Pedophiles who don't like sex? Asylum patients? Peter Molyneux? If he really had that AI technology and this wasn't just a very well rehearsed cutscene, WHY FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WOULD HE USE IT IN THIS MANNER? It's like finding out how to cure cancer and then using the formula to fertilize your garden.

    Plus the uncanny valley is really working in overdrive in that there world. Yeesh...

    My dog does that. Maybe we will get a new dog game, but with bloom.

    I seriously wish I would go to one of these things. I would stand up in the middle of the audience and shout, "If it's able to do all that, why did you just bring the software and the machine here instead of recording a video and give us a live performance?"

    Who the fuck will want to talk with ugly virtual emotional polygonal characters anyway?

    RPGs are all about acting like a lonely faggot by expecting characters on screen to show emotions for you, don't you know? It is also called C&C.

    Integration of this would make for a real bitching Bioware romance with an npc.

    Now you actually have to HUG Aerie.
