red dead redemption 2

Recommended Posts

Mr_wimpy

Anyone played this yet?  Is it any good?

Find games hard to get into, but the few I do are brilliant.  Last two were GTA and Call of Duty WW2

VERY good.  A bit too involved for my liking though.  You have to take care of your character and horse better than I take care of myself. :P   My horse died last night cause I think I forgot to feed it or something. annoying.
That said, one of the best games I've played in years.

edit: I'm kinda like you. Have a hard time getting into a lot of games.  Though, I do buy a lot of them, I usually play them for an hour or two and never touch them again. i'll finish RDR though.

Far Cry 5 was excellent.  I hadn’t played the earlier editions, but I bought FC4 after finishing 5.

It's the best single player game I've ever played and I've been gaming since the early 80's and it's what I spend most of my time doing.

 

This game is phenomenal. The attention to detail is stunning. Just riding around is great, you see and can do some funny shit. I shot a cart driver last night with a fire arrow...seeing the cart catching fire and the horses going mental as they run away towing a cart on fire was funny as fuck. There's just so much to do.

Buy it!

The first couple of chapters are mainly tutorials, chapter one especially.  The controls are a bit moody but you get used to them.

I've just started chapter three and loving it. I'm avoiding the main story to a certain extent and just doing the side missions I come across...and hunting.

The game is superb!

I bought it.  Cancelled any plans for tonight.  Bought the beer, family sized quaver crisps, settled the dog, dimmed the lights, charged the controller and...

Which areas of the map would you suggest to explore more for fun, landscapes or surprises ?

All of it! I've gone everywhere apart from the SW where Blackwater is as I think it'll be hard to survive there with a dead or alive bounty lol. I just roam about aimlessly. You come across some random stuff in the various shacks dotted about the map.

I don't want to post spoilers, but if you want one of the best horses in the game then head north to Lake Isabella and look for a white 'Arabian' . You have to calm it and then not let it buck you off but once you've broken it in you can put your saddle on it. I've just done it, took  a while lol.

I presume this new one is only suitable for PS4/Xbox one ?

Not played yet, but the way rockstar have been treating their staff on the lead up to this game buts a dampener on it for me. 100 hour weeks and no compensation is pretty shitty.

Yeah, got the arabian horse from east of the lake too.

Not even any area that you specially enjoy in Lemoyne for instance ?

Fishing in the alligator invested marshes is fun lol. Caught a 20lb fish, had to stow it on the horse like a carcass.

On the ground: L2 and left on the D Pad

On your horse:  Go to your weapon wheel and press R1 a few times to the horses stuff, and select it.

I can feed it, I can’t brush it.  The option is greyed out

If I remember correctly you get it once you finish the bear hunting mission in chapter 2.

actually had a good few hours of the game tonight. it's been tough for me lately, like I said, I have a hard time with really involved games. but, getting used to it more, and really enjoyed it tonight.  Besides the 20 minutes after a mission I followed the trail and it took me to the top of a mountain for no reason, and another 20 mins back. prob shoulda checked the map... damn alcohol.

Purchased RDR2  launch day but couldn’t touch it til I finished SPIDER-MAN. Finally finished spider man yesterday (what an emotional roller coaster that game was lol), but now I need a break to psyche myself up for rdr 2. I’m a big gamer but I can’t cut it like I used to now I’m in my old age...sigh...

RDR1 was one of my all time favourite games though
