Red Dead Redemption 2

Recommended Posts

The hunting is tedious as fuck. I only did it when I had to,in that story mission where you hunt a bear. After that,I didn’t even bother with it.

A mate told me about the trouble he was having,getting “perfect” pelts from animals,as it’s a right pain in the arse. And I thought “Nah. Fuck that noise”.

 

Oh,and throughout my entire playthrough,I never,ever saw a badger. So good luck with that.

Again I'll point out that you can get the satchels another way later and you don't need hunting for completionist (I think...)

 

I saw a badger once. I can't remember if I skinned one or not. You are not going to find or do any of that in a time efficient way so you might as well give up if the idea of staring at grass and leaves for minutes on end is taking its toll. Staying in the same area for close to an hour trying to catch something and not being spotted yourself.

 

None of RDR's systems are friendly or respectful of your time, least of all the hunting. It's the most "fuck you" AAA game I can think of in recent years. Maybe you can see now why it's so divisive.

 

 

As for the HDR it just boosts the values but still keeps it in a limited range, or something like that? It's not HDR, it's faked or something according to a of articles. So turn it off.

 

It's occurred to me also you might still be on chapter two. Chapter two is a long ass tutorial so it's good to progress past it as quickly as possible.

For the same reason they like the rail road tracks in the northern mountains

I know I’m still really early but this could be one of my top 10 of the generation. This game is incredible.

I’m sitting next to a night time campfire drinking booze and cleaning my guns while Javier strums some cool music on he’s guitar. Then I’m gonna eat these fucking wolves that keep trying to eat me and going to bed. 

 

This is game is so much fun

Never came cross that.

I did think a few female characters implied they were raped, like the burning house bit near the beginning.

This game continues to blow me away.

I've been dipping into the missions, but mostly I've just been kicking my heels and exploring the world.

I'm part of the way through chapter 3 and I'm finding the story interesting enough. Nice to find out a little bit more of Dutch (and John)

I've been getting most of my meeting people going about their lives (and petting every dog I meet) it's fascinating how densely packed the world is.

I've spent some time fishing in a lake. I've spent some time trailing wildlife. I've taken my horse (Mr. Trousers) all the way to the top of the mountains, and all the way into some horrible deep cave in the back end of nowhere that was full of bits of people...

 

While playing last night, I was out walking in the woods, watching the sun go down. As the light was making long fingers through the trees, a fog started to roll into the forest. I usually find that there's something of interest in the middle of unmarked areas of the map, so I carried on walking.

I heard what sounded like whispering. The sound in the game is phenomenal, and playing with headphones adds to the immersion. I turned up the volume to try and work out what the noise was, and where it was coming from. 

Definitely sounded like whispering...

and then.

nice and loud

"what's that awful noise?"

I dropped my controller in shock. It sounded like it was coming from someone stood right next to me. I turned the Xbox off.

scared the shit out of me. fuck knows who it was, but I'm not going back there at night again! lol

I chip away at this but can only play at the weekend. I’m still in chapter 3 and just did a bank robbery. I love this game more when I’m exploring as 90% of the missions are the same. Go to area. Threaten person. Something has gone wrong and you have to shoot respawning enemies and escape. A bank. A ranch. A jailhouse. All the same.

So... Minding my own business up West of Strawberry and Charles came out of nowhere "there you are Dutch was worried, sent me out looking for you".

Rode back to camp with him, talking pretty much all the way home about stuff I had seen and what was going on at camp...

This game, man... This game...

Oh! 

I also got challenged to a duel by someone who had just shot someone else to death

Naturally, I'd poked 6 holes right through the other guys head before he even got his hand on the gun.

Then everyone got angry at me and I got a $20 bounty on my head. I've been paying off my bounties as I've been playing, but I only had about $4 on me at the time.

I surrendered to the sheriff, not wanting to push my bounty any higher. Spent a night in the cell and my bounty was gone!

I thought this would be a great way to shake off my $300 I'm Stawberry.

I went into strawberry and fired my gun into the air, then surrendered when the sheriff rocked up.

Sitting in the cell feeling smug about having just saved $300 and John and Charles rock up and bust me out of prison!

Awesome, but my bounty went up to $325...

Went back to jail the next day. I'm no longer a wanted man in Strawberry.

I also helped a law-man who was supervising prisoners bust up rocks.

They tried to escape.. I hog tied them while the law man shot them.

I started this yesterday. Part way through chapter 2 now. Just got the bear hunt done. Miles away from camp now! 

 

Im enjoying it so far. I’m already loving getting to know the characters! The shoot outs have been fun too.

 

But I can definitely see the slowness reaching the point where I’ve had enough after a few hours and I understand where the control criticisms come from, especially when trying to fine tune to some pick up or hitching the horse. Not found the conversation thing too bad though, just got to make sure their name has popped up on LT first. For now I’m enjoying it thought. I need a fast travel system to unlock soon though, already getting slightly bored of riding everywhere. 

 

Edit - anyone know if the HDR issue has been patched? I can’t find any more recent information than the December patch and that said it hadn’t been fixed yet. The colours just look washed out and not sure if it’s down to that.
