Fallout’s talking heads. Every game. Lip-synched dialogue.
They already do that with mocap. Like in LA Noire. Now they just don’t need face rigs, because the software is FaceRig.

EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.
Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.
The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.

Australian spring has hit
Montana, where leaves
paint trees in the colors
of the backdrop
and the people falling
into love with love
wonder at how quickly the rain
unmelted this year, you see
the sky was white today
with its greying
and black with birds
flying to where they’d fly
from for home

The Prime Minister of Australia has addressed the Nation and Australia gets moved to a “high alert” for terrorist threats.
*Image obtained from SMH: 12/09/2014
In one breath Tony Abbott says that a terrorist attack is “likely”, but also that ASIO has detected “no specific threats”.
If in attack is “likely” without specific evidence to justify the claim, then that is just blatant fear-mongering at best, or incompetence at worst.
Judging from Abbott’s performance so far, I’m leaning towards incompetence. Maybe that says more about my view of the world than anything else. I’d sooner believe that my Prime Minister has all of the intelligence of half a brick in a puddle, than believe that ‘terrists’ are gonna explode the NRL grand final.
