- Red Dead Redemption 2
yeah, its ok shooting an animal as it legs it past, but slowly tracking the bastard is boring. as is searching for a particular creature for hours on end, as is the fishing… but as mentioned the game doesnt force you to do this stuff…
cba collecting all the fag packets either – but crafting is a p.o.p if you already have the gear in your handbag. the explosive bullets and fire arrows are great fun!!Posted 9 months ago
It was ever thus. I’m amazed the servers aren’t on their arse. I’d give it a couple of weeks till the novelty wears off.
Can you play private games online or is it MMO territory? I’m considerably less interested in playing with a bunch of random cretins and 14-year old boys high on Monster.Posted 8 months ago
Not sure as its just beta currently so things may change for full release, dont mind some horseplay but if you cant roam around without constantly worrying about getting shot by scrotes then it’ll be a bit sucky. I don’t remember the first one being too bad for randoms being dicks. Although obviously shooting your mates horse was always funny.Posted 8 months agoP-JayMember
Anyone on the online stuff yet, don’t think i can get on till tomorrow. Reports seem to indicate its a bit chaotic and if you try and do anything there are players camped out just shooting everybody they see making it less than fun.
Not yet, I hated GTA online, open world is a nightmare of ‘greifing’ and the general hell of other people and missions were boring and repetitive grindfests to earn a tiny amount of virtual currency to buy the latest reskinned car or gun.
R* have said it’s all different with RDR, there’s not much point killing other players (but of course that the only thing people want to do) and its supposed to be like the main game only with other players, but I’ve read that it’s like Fortnite without winners.Posted 8 months agogeexMember
Finally tried online the other night. One hour in and still not actually playing, unless you can call being babied through the controls and watching dull cut scenes “playing”. so gave up on it entirely.
I just don’t have the attention span or care enough to wait an hour to play any game… especially a dull one where you control a **** horse

@Sqwubbsy – I played worse (moral) games at 13 I would have thought. there is obviously violence and shooting of people etc but I haven’t come across anything that I would consider too bad yet (in a gaming context obviously not in a normal real life situation).
Is there a way to get your stats on the game? Normally on Rockstar games you get a summary screen with time played, miles walked, miles ridden etc but I haven’t been able to find it yet.Posted 8 months agojuliansSubscriber
It’s violent, and bloody, there’s is a fair amount of swearing, and one sex scene so far ( in the drinking with Lenny mission, if you wander into one of the rooms in the brothel you come across a bloke being ridden by one of the ladies, full nakedness etc) I’d say not at all suitable for a 13 year old……but YMMV.Posted 8 months agorobbo1234bikingSubscriber
@julians I know what you mean but I guess it depends on the 13 year old. At that age I had seen films like predator, die hard the fly and played games like duke nukem, soldier of fortune etc. Tough to make a call I guess but it is an individual parents decision – we can only advise what the content is.Posted 8 months agowukfitMember
I’ve only been shot at twice online I think, my preferred counter attack is to lasso them and drag them along the road until I get bored
played a Bows only battle royal which was alright, problem was when it ended there were 20ish players in the same spot which is when the real carnage started
the main online story has stopped at 75% so am doing side missions until it hopefully continues, annoying this is that I’m only at level 10 so limited to what weapons I can buyPosted 8 months agorene59Member
The online part of the game seems to be designed to extract as much real cash from you as it can. Compared to the main story everything is more expensive and you only get a few cents online where you would expect to get a few dollars in the main story, e.g. like if you rob someone.
Will give it one more go but if it is going to take a couple of weeks play just to buy one decent weapon then I’ll chuck it.Posted 8 months ago
