    When I played Fallout 3... I thought to myself "Damn... this game is fucking stupid. They can't get more dumb... can they?". Then Arcania came.

    But I hope with TW2 it won't be the case... I hope.

    Look, people have complained about this a long time. The rats in fallout being one of the classic complaints, just because you don't know about it, doesn't mean it didn't happen. and there are plenty of games with animals that doesn't attack on sight. Even in Baldurs gate the bears didn't attack unless you got to close to them or attacked them yourself.

    and no, Rhinos are not dangerous as fuck in real life. They need to be provoked to attack a human and might still prefer to run.

    If 99% of things in the wilderness in a RPG is dangerous, then that is shitty. Especially in a open world one when encounters isn't made for relevance. But apart from Diablo I don't think there is a RPG were that high perecntage attacks.

    Taken from various sources.

    Basically the black rhinos can attack random things due to bad eye sight and fear of the unknown. They are also known to attack trees. :D White rhinos as seen is very unlikely to make an actual attack (the most common rhino) and the asian rhino's prefer to run away.

    For some reason I've been reading the whole thread as "hippos". When I saw "black rhino" I only then noticed my mixup.

    I'm a bit surprised at the black being more aggressive though. From what I noticed when I was in Africa the blacks (hurr) are much more shy and much, much harder to see in the first place. I guess the comparison is in the case where you manage to corner them, then the black is more likely to attack.

    But yeah, if they wanted African animals that attack on sight, buffalos and hippos (or hell, even elephants) would've been much better than ostriches and rhinos. That said... seriously, who cares. I can't wait to face attacking hordes of ostriches! especially if they get the sounds right.

    Look fagots,
    the comment actually said that many monsters are much too hard to take on in the beginning, limiting exploration in just the same way as the early Gothics did.

    Quality gameplay right there - so shut up about how there are no visible wounds and rhinos raped your ostrich and crap. The game may still suck, it probably will, but not for the reasons that you :x-man-i-wish-i-had-been-around-when-the-codex-didn't-blow tools are babbling on about.

    :x
