Watch Assassin’s Creed III Confuse the Hell Out of a Cat

Kotaku - Assassin's Creed III is a dazzling looking game. But it's not only the game's accurate recreations of Colonial America that impress, but also its realistic portrayal of dogs. Don't believe me? Just ask this cat. (Assassin's Creed III, PS3, Xbox 360)

Lol it's a good thing that cat didn't try to scratch the TV.

it was Smartcat, or "I cat"..

he was exploring the environment, and failed behind the TV! Look how the cat puts his tail when he learns that there is nothing behind the magic box, and the only way to get that dog is with console controller!!

WOW, the fact that the cat looked behind the TV when the animal went off the screen is quite incredible

That's a smart cat lol!

You've never seen a cat do that before?
GribbleGrunger  +   611d ago
Whether I have or haven't, consider what the cat is doing there. It isn't assuming the animal disappeared, it's actually taking the 3D environment in the game into consideration and adjusting it's perception to that, hence it's worked out that it 'must' have moved into the real world 3D space and disappeared 'behind' the TV. That is incredible. I'd bet that even an infant would think it had disappeared and wouldn't think it had gone behind the TV.

That is an experiment well worth looking into for any animal psychologist. Don't make the mistake of thinking the cat has the same visual mechanism as we do; it doesn't, but this shows its spacial awareness could be better than a humans. Even if the conclusion it came to was incorrect, it shows a degree of intelligence beyond what you would expect for our four-legged-furry friends.

That's interesting s**t.

You just made it more dramatic than it is. All I was saying is that cats do exactly what this cat did. That's what they do. That's not the first cat to do it, and I was just a little surprised at how incredible you thought it was, because I figured everybody had seen a cat do this before.
GribbleGrunger  +   611d ago
Well, yes, you see it as 'this is what cats do' while I see it as 'it's fascinating to understands why cats do that'. I guess I'm just more inquisitive. You may look at a bomb going off and just think 'that's what bombs do', while I would think 'I wonder what physics are involved'... or when you see a car moving forward, you might think 'that's what cars do' while I would think 'I'd like to know how an engine works'.

What do you want? Cats are stupid. That's right, I said it, cat fans. Bring it.

At least my cat can find its way home without having to smell it's own shit to track its way back..
wampdog29  +   610d ago
Wow, really? You see this as the cat being stupid?
SilentNegotiator  +   610d ago
Wow, lots of people taking my comment seriously. Just joking around on a stupid "game news article" about a cat looking at a TV when animals are on. I'm not the guy who stole your black cat on Halloween, so cool it.
