    I think it might've been someome on this board who first summed it up so well - chickems are amazingly good at being chickens. They're not so good at being anything else, and expecting them to be just leads to problems.

    1,000 chicken sized horses would still be evil horses while I can pretend the horse sized chicken is a chocobo.

    They're called chocobos.

    I just now realized how terrifying they would be in real life while reading this. Like an even bigger dumber ostrich.

    Chocobos aren't dumb, they're smart enough you can teach them to fight alongside you. Particularly impressive specimens can even be taught to fly.

    If Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon is anything to go by, they're also smart enough to do any number of jobs including stereotypically brainy ones, like mage or alchemist or gadgeteer.

    Well if final fantasy tactics is considered they are super fucking dangerous murder beasts. Beaks that can penetrate chain and even plate armor. Ability to summon giant meteors. They would make horrendous pets.

    Oh, I remember the chocobolypse of 4.3 - packs of red chocobos are to be feared.

    (A bit of back history - during the 4.x period of FFXIV, the 24 man raid was based on FFT, and in the early part of the quest chain for the second part, you were tasked with dealing with two red chocobos. Note the following:

    * This is two red chocobos per player.
    * There are a lot of endgame players doing this quest to get into the raid.
    * Each chocobo can cast Choco Meteor, a high damage AoE spell.
    * Chocobos do not despawn when the player is killed.
    *
    It did not take long for an angry red flock to start casting divine judgment on everyone in range, with predictable and hilarious consequences.)

    The bolded is just a recipe for grief. Suicide your whole guild into the quest and just stack them up. You'd think it's something the devs would consider, but MMO design looks a lot different from the other side.

    In vanilla WoW my guild couldn't kill Kazaak, but we sure as hell could tank him for hours right in the middle of a level 45ish questing area and watch his shadowbolt volley slaughter everyone. While we were doing this we even discussed how, "This seems like something the devs should have seen coming," but it wasn't until months later when another guild took him six zones away and let him loose on Stormwind that they finally caught on.

    Remember when they thought a dot that could spread to nearby players was a good idea

    I can kind of see their thought process there: It existed in a raid encounter. You couldn't exit the zone with the encounter active except by several means:

    -Death: Clears the debuff
    -Hearthstone: dot ticks break the 10 second channel
    -Paladin bubble+hearth: Clears the debuff
    -Mage teleport: dot ticks break channel
    -Mage portal: Not castable in combat
    -Warlock summon: Not acceptable during combat

    Problem: Mage portals persist if cast before combat.

    That wasn't the first debuff to do this in WoW, but the others were pretty mundane - there was one from Black Wing Lair that could spread, but nobody cared - it increased Shadowflame damage, which at the time was only used by Nefarian.

    PROTIP: "Ain't Nothing Illegal Till You Get Caught" surmises not getting caught:
    A man who was wearing a shirt that says “Ain’t Nothing Illegal ‘Til You Get Caught” was recently arrested by Oklahoma County sheriff’s deputies, after he and another man were caught in the act of stealing an ATV, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

    According to the Sheriff’s Office, David Rasmussen and David Jolly were caught red-handed trying to steal an ATV from a home in the 19000 block of East Reno Avenue.

    Let's be honest - what would this thread be without stupid criminals?

    Not as big as the biggest moas can get (10 ft vs 12 ft) but much bigger heads and beaks in proportion to their bodies.

    Brits on lookout for hardened criminals after £1M sex toy robbery:
    The incident happened on Wednesday, September 18, between 1am and 6.30am, in the layby between the A14 and Broughton village, and involved a lorry travelling from Felixstowe to Kettering in order to deliver its load to Rocks Off Ltd, based at the aptly-named Satisfaction House in Cunliffe Drive. The company is the UK's leading sex toy manufacturer and designer.

    At some point between 1am and 6.30am, the trailer was broken into and £1million worth of goods were stolen.

    Study finds that rats love driving tiny cars, even when they don’t get treats
    Rats that learn to drive are more able to cope with stress. That might sound like the fever-dream of a former scientist-turned-car writer, but it's actually one of the results of a new study from the University of Richmond. The aim of the research was to see what effect the environment a rat was raised in had on its ability to learn new tasks. Although that kind of thing has been studied in the past, the tests haven't been particularly complicated. Anyone who has spent time around rats will know they're actually quite resourceful. So the team, led by Professor Kelly Lambert, came up this time with something a little more involved than navigating a maze: driving.

    If you're going to teach rats to drive, first you need to build them a car (or Rat Operated Vehicle). The chassis and powertrain came from a robot car kit, and a transparent plastic food container provided the body. Explaining the idea of a steering wheel and pedals to rats was probably too difficult, so the controls were three copper wires stretched across an opening cut out of the front of the bodywork and an aluminum plate on the floor. When a rat stood on the plate and gripped a copper bar, a circuit was completed and the motors engaged; one bar made the car turn to the left, one made it turn to the right, and the third made it go straight ahead.

    . . .

    The subjects were 11 male rats, five of whom lived together in a large cage with multiple surface levels and objects to play with, and six who lived together in pairs in standard laboratory rat cages. Although both groups of rats learned to drive the car, the ones that lived in the enriched environment were quicker to start driving, and they continued to be more interested in driving even when there was no reward on offer beyond the thrill of the wind in one's fur.

    . . .

    Serious scientists usually refrain from imputing any further emotion onto research animals, but I'm no longer a serious scientist, so I'm happy saying that learning to drive made the rats more well-adjusted. And the study has further value; these complex activities may be more useful tests in rat models of neuropsychiatry than those in current use.

    Part of what makes Desert Bus what it is is that the bus has a misalignment in its steering so it constantly drifts a little in on direction making the player need to pay attention to keep the bus on the road. It's not just the monotony of the subject matter, it's that the player can't just go on autopilot.

    Most immersive sudoku simulator of all time.

    Edit: presumably as paid DLC.

    Apparently, the Desert Bus For Hope team will be doing an Airplane Mode run as part of this year's festivities.

    The craziest is you know that out there, somewhere, someone is buying reclaimed airliner seats, super excited that they'll finally be able to create the perfect coach flight VR simulation.

    I'm now imagining vr commercial flight sims with multiplayer where two players can be pilots and others act as passengers.

    Don't forget about flight attendants. And with air traffic controllers you can make a persistent world with multiple flights.

    I swear I've heard of people that RP air traffic controllers in Discord, Ventrilo, and the like for people playing flight sims. Flight sim fans can be very dedicated fans.

    People do it.

    Back before GTA multiplayer, servers ran modified versions with some of them dedicated to roleplaying the actual jobs.

    One guy was slowly and carefully driving a street sweeper up and down the curbs.

    At this point I'm just waiting for a VR Zachtronics-like multiplayer game where players work together to create the next VR Zachtronics-like multiplayer game.
