- Red Dead Redemption 2
started chapter 4, had a mooch round Saint Denis getting into bother for antagonising the locals. bought some new threads, had a haircut, interrupted some grave diggers and murdered about 400 SDPD who tried to stop me.
feels like im progressing a bit quick. need to chill out and do some hunting/fishing.
incidentally, was walking the dog through the woods yesterday when i spotted a squirrel and inadvertently reached for my bow!!Posted 6 months ago

I have read more than once that the game really comes alive when you finish the story, but how true that is I don’t know. There’s 6 core chapters and 2 epilogue chapters, so I’ve got plenty to go before the bulletfest chaos of on-line starts in a few weeks, I’m really hoping, that’s to the pacing of the story that I’ll enjoy it more than GTA online.Posted 6 months ago
are there any purchases worth keeping hold of my dollar for later on? ive bought all the camp upgardes, loads of outfits, a pimp saddle – just think whether it might be worth just paying my bounties now? esp in Saint D, where the lawmen are tenfold and come down on my ass like a hoard of locusts, even when i executed some rat who tried to rob me!Posted 6 months ago
Bought it for my old man, as he has an Xbox One X and I thought he should play something other than just driving games. Caved in and played it myself all weekend.
Holy shit, it feels like being in your own movie and the attention to detail is just stunning. I’ve reached Chapter 2 and I’m finding that dual wielding Schofield Revolvers seems to be working for me? What’s everyone else running?Posted 6 months ago
I’m way too trigger happy for dual sawn-offs, I’d end up with 4 holes in surrounding trees, rocks, birds, coaches, horses, fence posts, the lake, my friends – anything but what I was trying to hit, I need at least 6 changes to hit the thing I intended to hit. I should really turn on the auto-aim thing.Posted 6 months ago
I find the dual sawn offs too ineffectual for all but clearing trains out, most fighting seems to be done at pistol range. If I try and close down the range and get up close and personal, I get killed. I only use normal shotguns either in towns where I can get jumped by randomers or when mounted for wolves and dealing with highwaymen who suddenly pull a gun on me at close range.
There’s something so satisfying about “Oh yeah dickhead, pull a pistol on me? BOOM”. There’s a physicality to the game that makes the guns very satisfying to use, even if the controls are pretty clunky.
Oh and the sound! The crack of rifle rounds in the distance or wood pigeons cooing first thing in the morning – I don’t think I’ve ever played a game that sounded like a movie or a nature documentary as well. It’s a shame they got the wildlife a bit wrong, with bambis bouncing at full speed everywhere you **** look.Posted 6 months ago

That was where one of each came in handy, lets you get in closer… There is some good close combat stuff later on if you can get your sneak onPosted 6 months agowinryaMember
I’ve barely played a video game in the past year and I’m well into chapter 6 and hate to think how many hours it has stolen. What a game. Graphically stunning, great story that I can’t stop playing to see how it ends. Only frustration is slightly clumsy controls, made on of the chapter 5 missions really difficult but can Easily be forgiven.
Initially I was disappointed I didn’t buy it with an Xbox one x to enjoy it at its best but tbh it’s so impressive even on just a normal PS4 I don’t think I’ve missed out at all
think I’m going to give gtaV another play once I’ve got bored of thisPosted 6 months ago
spent ages last night night searching for a bastard white horse in the far north west. took so long to get there i wasnt leaving easily. but in the end i had to sack it off. the only consolation was the legendary white bison pelt i bagged – but then i was eaten by wolves and lost it.Posted 6 months ago
The citizens of Saint Denis really are a bunch of snowflakes. Just need to look at them the wrong way and off they go crying to the law.
They really are. its doin my frickin head in now. im getting slaughtered for even antagonising folk as i walk past!
Really considering just paying my bounties off, must have been murdered 10 times last night, that would have cost me $1500, my bounty stands at about $2k in total. no fun walking round on egg shells!
Also. the gunsmith in St Denis has an illegal poker game going on upstairs, i robbed it naturally – but how do you open the safe?Posted 6 months ago
