Yeah, Chapter 1 is pretty much an on-rails tutorial.

On Chapter 2 now and it's finally feeling like RDR

The first two hours and even longer beyond that is a tutorial for sure. But its a nice buildup and you can get to know some of the characters in the game.

This game is fucking amazing, 16 hours in.

Finally got a sit-down with it and I'm loving the game. My favorite missions so far are the four gunslingers you should get pictures of.

Only problems I have are L2/LT being both the aim and interact button and focusing on tracks is tediously done and barely highlights the track well enough.

Also chapter 1 was fine, it was just setting up stuff and i'm cool with that. Chapter 2 opens up in a much bigger way than I thought it would and i'm pretty happy with it.

I turn on my Xbox to play Forza Horizon 4 and I see that this is installed. I didn't buy it. Neither did my nephew who is the only person who I've ever linked accounts with. Starting my playthrough now. :confused :gladbron

Anyone ever had something similar happen to them?

I feel like there's a lot of stuff I want to do but doing it would take about 10% of my total time playing and the rest would be getting there and dealing with some bullshit cutscenes.

I like random events a lot.  I've only seen a handful of them, but they all were pretty interesting so far.

Yeah I appreciate the game trying to be a cowboy sim, but there are some things that seem to prioritize authenticity over fun.  I mean for fucks sake the prey I can kill can decompose if I don't sell it quick enough?  I'm simultaneously impressed and annoyed by something as small as that.

So far itís pretty damn immersive. Some of that immersion might get old 20 hours in, but Iím liking what Iíve played so far.

The graphics on Xbox one x are truly amazing. It passes for a movie or a photograph at times.

I spin to see the bear looking at me. I pullout the lever action but before I can get a bullet in the chamber heís on me and tearing me to pieces. Shit was intense dude. Iíll get that fucker eventually.

I can't believe I'm not buying it yet, but I really, really want to finish Horizon Zero Dawn and maybe even Arkham Knight before this, and I just KNOW RDR2 is gonna own my spare time indefinitely.

If you do get it on PS4 Pro, turn off HDR.  It looks like a blurry, washed out, mess with it turned on for whatever reason.  Turning it off makes the game look great, although obviously still not as nice at the Xbox One X version.

Turn on standard fps controls

Turn lock on noob aiming off to free aim

Turn deadzone to 0

Turn FOV up to max

Turn aim acceleration down

BETTER CONTROLS

This game is the real deal broski

just put it on the good controls like I mentioned above for a much better time playing it. The default controls are shit.

Also compared to GTA V and other open world games, the side activities are actually dope too.

My encounter went very similar to the Hugh Glass tale. You can stab him in the chest when he's mauling you. And I truly wonder if that's the intended way to kill him because I put a ton of shots into him before he mounted me.

"Despite his injuries, Glass regained consciousness, but found himself abandoned, without weapons or equipment. He had festering wounds, a broken leg, and deep cuts on his back that exposed his bare ribs. Glass lay mutilated and alone, more than 200 miles (320 km) from the nearest American settlement, at Fort Kiowa, on the Missouri River. Glass set the bone of his own leg, wrapped himself in the bear hide his companions had placed over him as a shroud, and began crawling back to Fort Kiowa. To prevent gangrene, Glass allowed maggots to eat the dead, infected flesh in his wounds."

Apparently Amazon has a killer deal right now for the X, Fallout 76, and RDR2 for $399.
