Todd Howard reveals a further level of detail and variations that players can expect with Skyrim.
So basically.. If I want the farming community to come after me with pitch-forks.. I kill a chicken?
I was thinking something like Zelda. Kill one and they all come for you!
Yay ZELDA and 3D DOT GAME HEROS.. Refernce
What about chicken kickin'? I mean, it is after a well respected pasttime and extreme sport.
Lmao! I thought that was hilarious the first time I did that, happened by accident and it had me confused for a sec... Like, wtf is going on... What happen....
I rather use the frenzy spell on chickens to make them attack people around town. That'd be awesome!
Who needs a dragon when you have an army of chickens!
Killed by peckers!!!
Huh..... I know what Im doing first now....
I cannot wait for this game, not long to go :)
So more hardcore chickens then Fable 2 I presume?
Why is it bad to kill a chickens
"Why is it bad to kill a chickens" "kill a chickens" "a chickens" Because you can't kill singular multiple chickens. That makes no sense. ....oh, and it's bad to kill chickens in the game because they don't belong to you, but rather a farmer.
Maybe English isn't the posters first language?
Oh come on, party poopers. "A chickens" is funny. This world has no love for the grammar-nazis :( "Maybe English isn't the posters first language?" So? I'm not making fun of the poster, I just thought it was sort of funny.
""Why is it bad to kill a chickens" "kill a chickens" "a chickens" Because you can't kill singular multiple chickens. That makes no sense" Wow. Overreact much?
All I see is overreactions to an overreaction that was not it fact an overreaction, but a joke.
@SilentNegotiator: I don't care what anyone says, your comment made me lol. +Bubs for being funny. People need to lighten up.
Hilarious that you didn't start out your sentence with a capital letter.... That makes no sense. BE SILENT!
"All I see is overreactions to an overreaction that was not it fact an overreaction, but a joke" lol, pretty much.
lol come to my house and kill one of my dads chickens... then you will find out why its bad :)
So if you were a farmer raising chickens to sell for a living, do you want some dumb a$$ going around killing them?
If he happens to be Dragon Born and carying a big F£^k-off Sward with him, I think I would leave him alone....let him play with the chickens if he wants. Going at him with a spade or something my find the farmer ending up like the chicken.
@ whydoyouask ya i know... but after years of being use to typing %"%£$ instead of Fuck.. for some reason I just seem to type £"%^ naturally.. I need to get out of that.lol
But that's why they just like you less, because they can't screw with dovakin with big bad sword.
@whydoyouask Except then some immature little kid will come along and give you a negative bubble vote for bad language.
Why would you sell the chickens when you could make millions off their menstruation i.e. eggs MMMUUUUUWWWHHHAAAHHHAAAAAAA.
i am so going to kill so many F&*$ing chickens.
Hope accidental kills can be avoided this time. I remember in Oblivion one of the guards who was attempting to help me ran right in front of my spell i'd cast and died. All the other guards charged me :(
Which is why I've learned never to rely on explosion radius-based spells. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
So there's no chance of KFC in Skyrim?
Now, i wouldn't say that
It'll be run by Redguards. :P
Yeah, Skyrim will punish me alright for killing a chicken in the game.The resulting bug of killing a single chicken will derive in a thousand glitches that will block any remaining quests, I'm sure.
It just said that killing a chicken would run through their story manager. Didn't say it was bad. Maybe people will start calling you Chicken Killer when you show up to their village? Maybe a kid will just be annoyed at you for killing his favorite pet fowl? Or maybe you will just get a small ding in your personality over time? Who knows... the basic premise is that they are saying everything in Skyrim seems to have a weight factor in the story manager.
I know what the title meant and what the article said, but did you know Bethesda's games are utterly broken and full of huge glitches? or are you just ignoring that fact? I bought them all, there's broken quests and random issues everywhere.There's no denying it. As for the consequences of killing a chicken, that's hardly revolutionary, have you played infamous? flash news, you might be shocked by how people react and remember around you.You can shot someone in FO3, they won't even budge, they'll nod, smile, and say "knock it off".Bethesda's scripts and personalities are absolutely sterile, it is impossible to feel empathy for bad programming and stupid zombies.
Wow... to be blunt, butt hurt much? I must be one lucky mofo because I have rarely ran into any glitches when playing Bethesda games compared to some other RPG titles. I don't think I ran into a single quest issue when playing through Oblivion. I have heard that others have had issues but I just didn't see the issues myself when playing through. Did you play through on the PC, PS3 or Xbox 360? I was not hyping the chicken or story manager... just stating the idea behind the concept of it instead of what people seem worried about Bethesda punishing you for killing chickens which is not what this is really about. (worried over nothing for the most part) I played infamous, don't see the correlation with Skyrim? Totally different games and though it had aspects that effected the game like Skyrim does with it's story manager, I didn't see the multitudes of small interactions really making a true impact on the whole game as Skyrim is proposing it's story manager will do. But we will just have to wait and see. As for FO3 didn't really level up the NPC experience but did we really expect it too? I never played Vegas because I wasn't as much a fan of the gameplay of the Fall Out series. So I will have to leave that be.
Butt hurt? I'm stating the truth, and even using euphemisms, you know what butt hurt would be? having to usher the last word like you did when we are talking about subjective experiences. But hey, want to talk objective instead? Bethesda forums are full of ignored (and insulted!) fans of all platforms, just asking for a patch so they can properly play a broken game.You truly have to be working for Zenimax to defend such poor, bug filled games; don't even dare comparing it to other RPG's or any other genre, Beth's games are broken beyond belief, and yet they act like the damn gestapo when asked for a fix.
So you can get followers in the game? Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee *inhales* eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee et...
I'm sorry what did you say? :-) m
its because if u kill it ull get ,chicken Shouts too ... like ko kok KOOOOOOOOO ..
Title is misleading. Kill a chicken and skyrim *may* punish you according to the information in the article. The story manager will have a diffrent reaction depending on your status with the people who wittness you burn a chicken. Kill a dragon that is burning the towns crops, and I doubt the AI would stress over a dead chicken or two. But if you show up in a town with no acceptable reputation, and kill a chicken, then they will demand compensation (like they would if a horse is stolen) or attack you. That is what I got from the article and previous information on AI reactions.
And then the game will crash.
I could go for some KFC...
If I drop gold, diamonds and other valuables i town, will townspeople turn against me? (read the article if you didn't catch my meaning)
Good question.. Depends how people view throwing away money. I mean.. if you see someone burning money in real life you just think they're crazy or a bit too up themselves!
But it's not burned, just discarded. You can't come spend money somebody else burned.
Also, how would you actually go about burning money in Skyrim? Considering they use a "coin only" system? With a flame dragon shout no doubt ;)
I would think it would be the opposite. They would probably look up to you like Robin hood? Dropping coins and gems at the feet of beggars. I would really doubt that would have a negative reaction. Just like the absorbing of a Dragon's Soul in town would I think give you more renown?
I hope you're right, or; at least that my concern is unfounded. Skyrim will rock either way!
This made me mildy concerned, actually. (lol) This is the kind of flaw in the game mechanic that would deduce from the gaming experience in the long run, albeit being rather funny the first time around. Skyrim will rock either way though!
"Stop, criminal scum! Nobody murders a chicken on my watch. Your juicy and tender fried breast is now forfeit. Now, either pay your fine or it's off to jail."
I sure hope I don't hear that in Skyim...though I can very easily hear the original Oblivion voice actor saying that. Thanks for the laugh.
Who cares about killing chickens .........just wear women's underwear downtown .
I like just stripping down and streaking through town. When my character in Oblivion got massive powerful at the end, I sometimes just ran around killing enemies in the buff. Made it feel like more of a challenge. And oddly it was very freeing when people were annoyed by my underwear antics.
What about chicken-heads? ;)
Casual scrolls rated T for teen!
So if you kill a chicken, the farmers will attack an armoured, armed, magic welding warrior? Over a chicken? Yeah, in real life, not likely.
It's almost as if...now bear with me here....it's almost as if it's just a video game... I know I KNOW! Call me crazy, but come to think of it I reckon it IS just a game. You've just been learned.
god damn it it will be like oblivion just worse *raiden steped on flower* then......a game day later *dragon appeared and guard saying you "betrayed the lawwwwwww"* =/
Perish the thought, lawbreaker...
Can you deep fry em when you're done with the killing?
Will a swarm of chickens come out of nowhere and kick my ass?
This is the biggest news on N4G, really?
Suddenly I'm more interested in this game.
What happens if you kill two chickens?
The apocalypse! :P
