baekdal Posted October 30, 2014 Share Posted October 30, 2014 So, just adding my voice here about the new wolf situation. It's just completely out of hand. They are everywhere. I started up a new game and there were two wolves circling me. And the whole game now feels like a 'dash to the next house' instead of an actual survival game. Every single time you step out of a house, there is a wolf right around the corner. So I started a new game, and there was a wolf right in front of me. So I started another one, and there was a wolf. And another one, and there was a wolf.I love The Long Dark. I absolutely love the new map. I love how it's connected to the old one. I love the new coastal town. I love how the game is both incredibly relaxing and wonderful to play after a long, stressful day, while also having an element of constant suspense. I love how it's more about survival than running around hiding from dangers. But everywhere you walk, there is a wolf patrolling the path. These wolves are just like zombies. This is insane.As someone said (can't remember who), this is a 'thinking man's game'. This is a game for people who strategize and plan ahead.Part of my annoyance with the wolves is also that I don't live in a country that has that many wolves to begin with. I live in Denmark, where we only have about 4 wolves in total... in the entire country. When someone even spots a wolf, it's often mentioned in the news. I would prefer a game where I could turn off all the wolves completely. The wolves don't add anything to the game for me. It's just an annoying distraction from the far more exciting game of strategizing about your survival.Another part of the problem is where the wolves are. There are very few wolves out in the open (where you would expect them to be), but they are almost always clustering around the habitable zones. That doesn't make any sense to me, but I'm no wolf expert. The coastal town is like the wolf base. Shouldn't it be the other way around?So, if you guys don't want to change the wolf situation, please add a "no wolves" option in the options menu. Oh... and BTW, I finally managed to start a game without being surrounded by wolves. I went to the first cabin... rummaged around for food, went back outside... and was killed by a wolf. But once you leave the habitable zones and venture into the outbacks... the Long Dark is just spectacular! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
