While I didn't ask for this, in the event I ever need such a thing, I think I will.

Also, the implications of advanced prosthetics (from a cultural and economic view) should have been made a central theme in the new Robocop in an effort to make it "forward-thinking". As this technology becomes more advanced, were gonna hit a point where the machine limb becomes stronger than the man limb. And if you thought the "entry-level" job requirements were bad now...

/skin tactile elements 16²/cm² . With Motoko It's great because we can manufacture it directly, and with fiber optics, there's no noise generated either.

//Couldn't find an image of that particular page of the manga.  NSFW anyways.  Old man Shirow has really thought his cybersex through.

Bah. They need to come up with a skul-gun first to impress. Otherwise, they will be obsolete and sld at flee markets; old grey golems for scareing the children.

We can't even make the soda machines dispense the right soda. I want orange, it keeps giving me lemon-lime.

Fortunately, a robotic arm will still tear out of a human shoulder socket at approximately the same maximum load as a human arm. Physics is a biatch.

Go play Deus Ex Human Revolution.

There is no way robocop could have done the theme better then that game did.

Is DX:HR worth playing despite my loathing of cover mechanics in video games? I assume it is since the original is one of my favorite games of all time. Was the PC port particularly bad or something? I really should find the time to give it another try, but it just left me feeling meh after a bit of playtime.

The primary complaint from many was the boss battles, but they're actually coming out with a 'directors cut' in one week that revamps them, bundles all the DLC, improved AI, improved combat, etc.

Short version, if you've never played it but are interested, Oct 22 is the day. I'll be giving it a second playthrough with the director's cut.

Wait for the Directors cut that is coming out soon, then try again

/They fix the boss fights in that edition, and presumably the Missing Link DLC is integrated

Nice to hear about the DX:HR Directors' Cut. I'm assuming that the balance changes will patched into the original game? Or is it only being sold as a completely separate edition of the game?

Hey, porn drove the internet.  Never underestimate humanity's ability (and desire) to look at new technology and think, "Well, how can I have sex with that?"
