    In Skyrim a bear murdered a rabbit, then turned to attack me because ?? I guess it decided it was worth just leaving the rabbit instead of eating it to fight a giant cat person? So I shot it several times with fireballs then ran away because it was going to be too trivial.

    Eventually I found the shrine I was looking for, with a dragon flying around in the distance that eventually came close enough to fight. Almost immediately, another dragon flew up, so I had to fight two dragons at once. In the middle of that, I heard growling and got hit by something, turned around, and saw the half-health bear from multiple minutes ago. Wtf. Who is in charge of the Skyrim AI, and why did they think bears would be psychotic enough to limp up a mountain to bite someone fighting multiple dragons simultaneously.

    Bear is likely stronger than the dragons

    I will not stand idly by and allow this anti-dragon propaganda to spread unopposed

    Actually this does remind me that one of the dragons got a huge chunk eaten out of its health by a different bear...

    Skyrim does too. Wolves that will persist in following you even after you get frustrated and turn around and murder 2/3rds of their pack in an eighth of a second with multiple fireballs.

    I get that they don't want Skyrim to be super... such that you walk for forever with nothing happening, but I definitely think the animal AI could've used more work.

    something that has been cracking me up about Swedish ESO guild is our discord signups for events

    if the event has a limited number of spaces available, every time there will be n-1 signups and then like half a dozen people signed up as tentative so that nobody takes the last slot

    Dutch politeness has a last cookie problem, where noone will eat the last snack on a plate.
    If you do want to, you basically have to ask permission of anyone else involved
    The first person to ask will always get this, but you've got to do it
    This only disappears when group sizes go beyond 10 or so.

    This happens with the bandits, too

    Theoretically a fight can go so badly for them that they'll scatter and flee, but this only seems to happen once most of them are dead and the last one or two are down to their last sliver of health

    Even then they seem to more or less immediately rally and come back at you

    My brother still brings up the time he offered the last sandwich on the plate to the table, fully expecting norms to be obeyed and everyone to politely decline the sandwich so he may have it. Only for my sister to go "Me!" And snatch it off the plate.

    That was over 20 years ago. Some wounds never heal.

    When my brother was little, he realised that while guests were around, he could get chocolate biscuits so long as he first offered the tin to everyone, before selecting one for himself. This worked for quite some time before my parents cottoned on.

    Video game designers (Valve) in 2011 (almost an actual quote): If we knew what we know now when we released TF2, it would've been f2p (unspoken: with microtransactions).

    Video game designers in 2020: we've realised it was a mistake to market video games to anyone except the aristocracy, oil sheikhs and tech barons.

    I like the disclaimer at the start of The Long Dark, where they say that Canadian wolves, moose and bears are extremely unlikely to attack you irl and creative liberties have been taken to make the game more 'survivally'.

    I played the first couple hours of Genshin and it was okay? Good production value, as long as you don't mind full-tilt silly JRPG/shonen anime aesthetics. I haven't been that engaged by the core gameplay loops so far though. Maybe if I put a little more time into it. This is always my problem with huge, expensively-produced games these days, though. It takes like 3 or 4 hours before it starts getting fun because there is SO much handholding and slow prologue-ish story setup.

    A fantasy world that gradually gets more and more boring as humans "tame" the wilderness, ending with the most banal modern day life would be a pretty effective environmental message imo.

    Presumably this is to discourage people from leeroy jenkins-ing at some wildlife with a stick in the firm belief that they are now inevitably locked into a fight to the death
