- Serious, wtf? When in reality EVER has ANYONE fought a PACK of Cougars?? NAME ONE GORRAM TIME!!!! What the hell happened to the game industry that convinced both Rockstar and Ubisoft that cougars travel the American wilds in groups of 3 or more?
From Wikipedia: Like almost all cats, the cougar is a solitary animal. Only mothers and kittens live in groups, with adults meeting only to mate.
SOLITARY. SOLI-F'IN-TARY!!! Not "Get gang-raped by a cougar's 3 buddies while you skin it!!!"
Seriously, I climbed one mountain, spotted a cougar, laid a trap, killed it, and then got jumped by his 3 friends. As I continued to climb I encountered 3 more cougars traveling in a group. At the peak of the mountain I killed another cougar and then on the way down I killed two more before being attacked by yet another cougar! When the 12th cougar came after me I literally leapt off the mountain to my sweet, sweet, death just to get the F off of Cougar Mountain!!! (We ran upon a whole cougar village!)
Evidently John Marston can thank Connor for his relatively low number of cougar encounters. For every pack of 3 Marston encountered there were TWELVE that Connor had to slay!
Yeah, this sort of thing happens a lot in AC3, seemingly because some hunting grounds are relatively small but they still have like five or six different species around. So that means whenever you come across a hostile animal there are about three others in the wings. I got attacked by three bears the other day. One came out, i took care of it then when i went to skin it another came, and while i was fighting that second one i could see a third bear lumbering towards me. Didn;t know bears had a pack mentality.
What is it with you and bears, mate? Did you lure them into an innocent homestead thsi time as well? ;)
Heh. I must have pissed off a native american at some point and now the spirit of the bear haunts me. Good thing there aren't any bears here in Australia.
@Katzenbalger If there WERE bears in Australia they'd be venomous...
oh my God, I was thinking the same thing as I played, this is a rip of Red Dead with the hunting! cougars devouring me in seconds!
I also get a strong Skyrim vibe off of it now that I'm Connor. I think that's why it is SO much improved over the opening sequence.
@Uesugi-dono I don't know, I'm still not crazy about it - I'm happier playing Rocksmith than AC3...there, I said it!
Huh? I've played through RDR twice, the second time just recently in fact. I can't recall ever encountering a single cougar unless it was spotting one as I rode by. It was like clockwork: kill a cougar, prepare for the second cougar's attack. That picture up top was a simple google search for "RDR Cougar" and it was right there.
