D3 Level 13 "Don't shoot me?"

Post by sdfgeoff » Thu Apr 21, 2011 7:36 pm

Anyone found a robot in D3 level 13 that begs you not to kill it?
I believe it said "Don't shoot me, I'm not like the others"
I got a message at the top of my screen doing that. Unfortunately I didn't see the message until after I had shot it.

Anyone know what happens if you kill it, or if you don't?
Is it just there to puzzle me?
Eh?

that is the GuideBot, you cant kill him, but he will get mad at you if you do it enough times to damage him

Ace, he's actually talking about a specific robot on D3-13. It doesn't shoot at you, and asks not to be shot.

It doesn't really do anything, and nothing changes whether or not you kill it. It's just an odd scared robot. I've wondered if it was one of the items on the "unfinished" list for D3 (there are a few known features that never got finished by the time it was released).

I remember that guy! I went looking for him yesterday to grab a screenshot but I couldn't find him.

I leave robots alone, which don't shoot me. When a robot ever shoots me, then I shoot at it back.

I'm usually too absorbed by blowing up everything in sight to NOT shoot him. So he ends up exploderized more often than not.

That and he doesn't ask not to shoot him till you've already shot him and he's defending himself... so it's sorta pointless.

Story implications are interesting though - some robots could be resistant to the virus. Bet that robot wouldn't like it very much either if Red Acropolis got ahold of him and started doing experiments to find out the source of the resistance.
It's a no-win for the uninfectable.
The eyes of the plush lobster stared deep into my soul. I touched it, made as if to pick it up, and then I was a panther.

Now THAT's a level of deep I wasn't expecting. I'm suddenly thinking of a D4 storyline that includes uninfected bots playing as both your ally and foe, for the rights of sentient machines to get treatment and not be experimented on or exterminated, in a kind of "machine war" where bots want to kill their brethren for fear of contracting the virus.


Edit: Oh man, can you see a Descent MMOG where you join against other players and AI in a war? (I'm sure there is already a game like this, but I don't know of it.)

I;m surprised so many of you know which one I'm meaning. And yes, it would be a challenge to have to kill some bots, but avoid shooting others. I can only see you making a mistake and having your AI Allies turn against you...
Eh?
