I hoarded so much cash that the whole getting a loan and having to work to pay it off thing in the epilogue made no sense.

Spending money on the camp helps refill the food/medicine/ammo without you doing it directly but not a huge impact. I bought a boat for the camp when you're in the south but there's never any particular point in using it.

I heard this game makes you shave

calstars, Sunday, 9 December 2018 20:16 (ten months ago) link

i never do, but i always try to look as silly as possible

tip: there's a card in every pack of premium cigarettes, incl the one you buy at stores. i wasn't using any cigarettes because of the core damage. discard them immediately and you can keep picking them up/buying them

If you’ve quit smoking irl do you get a rush when you smoke in game? LOL

calstars, Sunday, 9 December 2018 23:20 (ten months ago) link

Inspired by all the jibber jabber on this thread, I returned to the original with the intention of playing some further in. Completed one mission of aimless shooting and then just played poker and liar's dice for a few hours. I think video games are no longer for me.

Maybe y’all already heard this nickname but the Greatest Generation guys were calling RDR2 “Jazz Horse” and I lol’d.

My problem with cigarettes in this game is that you only smoke them for like one second! I want to savor the damned thing

i found the meteor house. gross!

i found a cutesy little cabin with flowerbeds, marked on the map as "roadside brothel" or something. took me a bit to notice the dead body sitting on the porch.

most of the unique little ambient details i've run into so far involve corpses

goole, Tuesday, 11 December 2018 22:59 (ten months ago) link

Well that’s environmental storytelling for ya! You got a skeleton and a toilet, now how do you arrange them

i'm gonna try to beat rdr2 today. i am alone stuck at home for the day so i have all the time in the world. i think i'm about to finish ch 6 but i've been saying that for an hour now.

Karl Malone, Friday, 28 December 2018 18:39 (nine months ago) link

I'm at work :(

I have measured out my life in coffee shop loyalty cards (silby), Friday, 28 December 2018 18:52 (nine months ago) link

i'll be playing aaalllll day

Karl Malone, Friday, 28 December 2018 19:06 (nine months ago) link

finally beat it late last night. there's a lot to complain about but i managed to play some enormous number of hours, and i'm still riding around after the credits have rolled, hunting legendary animals. so i guess i enjoyed it!

is anyone else still playing? i'm not sure whether to jump into online or just not be a cowboy for a while.

Karl Malone, Saturday, 29 December 2018 19:03 (nine months ago) link

It doesn’t sound like fun and I’m not sure I’ll play it despite enjoying the first one. Nb that’s was the only rockstar game I ever enjoyed

L'assie (Euler), Saturday, 29 December 2018 19:30 (nine months ago) link

I tried to play this at a friend's house and you had to pull off some street fighter II button combo bullshit just to eat a can of beans

From all accounts this seems like an enormous time sink and there’s no way I could give the old timey west that much time. It would have to be blade runner 2814 or some shit for me to invest that much of my life

calstars, Saturday, 29 December 2018 20:07 (nine months ago) link

Today I met a rancher randomly and he started shooting at me when I wouldn't leave the area, so I killed him. Then I set his pigs free. Who then all proceeded to munch on his corpse.

glad i found an example of this, which is one of the most clever and poignant details i've seen in this game:

**RDR2 SPOILER ALERT** unbelievable how much detail @RockstarGames has put into Red Dead Redemption 2. First pic is Arthur’s journal entry, Second is John’s entry for the same encounter. Arthur being the more experienced journal writer, his drawing was naturally better.

wow! that's awesome.

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 15 January 2019 22:09 (nine months ago) link

Do I lose much if I don't play the first game?

Chuck_Tatum, Tuesday, 15 January 2019 22:14 (nine months ago) link

imo no

Mordy, Tuesday, 15 January 2019 22:17 (nine months ago) link

yeah not really. i'm sure the narrative elements don't line up 100% anyway.

"Pinkerton employees 'now have to explain to their young game players why Red Dead Redemption 2 encourages people to murder Pinkertons.'"
Yes parents, video games can be educational

good kicker, though

Chuck_Tatum, Thursday, 17 January 2019 00:25 (nine months ago) link

as an aside, there's some juicy stuff about the pinkertons in the last (and amazing) david grann book, "killers of the flower moon"

Chuck_Tatum, Thursday, 17 January 2019 00:26 (nine months ago) link

i think this focus on "achievements" runs counter to marston's character. for instance i don't do any of the bounty hunts. what the fuck do i care? i'm basically a criminal myself. i just want to find william williamson.

you can read his discharge letter from the army. his name's not William!

so many of the systems of this game are so strange. found hats are not stolen hats are not crafted hats:

two weeks pass...

100% ~~

goole, Monday, 11 February 2019 21:43 (eight months ago) link

How many hours?

Glower, Disruption & Pies (kingfish), Thursday, 14 February 2019 06:48 (eight months ago) link

I think this might be up there with Witcher 3 for me - just so cathartic and immersive.

On the other hand, I met my brother for a drink last week and he told me he got sexually assaulted in this game. I won't go into further detail but it was fairly graphic.

FernandoHierro, Thursday, 14 February 2019 07:57 (eight months ago) link

That happened to a friend of mine and he went back to see if it would happen again but the NPC isn't interested in you any more after the first time.

Elitist cheese photos (aldo), Thursday, 14 February 2019 09:27 (eight months ago) link

Yeah my brother said he went back and killed the guy in some elaborate manner.

FernandoHierro, Thursday, 14 February 2019 10:13 (eight months ago) link

my wife got knocked out and picked up in a fireman's carry by some rando other player (presumably an 11 yo boy) but she pressed the Die button before they got wherever he was taking her. The Die button seems urgent and key.

kf: i don't even want to know.

with the polar vortex and feb snowfalls i've been quote-unquote working from home quite a bit the past month

goole, Thursday, 14 February 2019 17:48 (eight months ago) link

also a lot of racism online, no surprise:

after dipping my toe in the water in both GTA online and RDR online, i have learned my lesson and will never participate in a rockstar game's online mode ever again.

global tetrahedron, Saturday, 5 October 2019 14:40 (two weeks ago) link
