How do you turn off HDR in X1X?  I only see an adjustment for brightness of the HDR.

You gotta turn it off at the console level.

Settings->Display and Sound->Video Output->Video Modes->Uncheck "Allow HDR10"

Basically Rockstar "faked" the HDR by just transplanting SDR into an HDR container which means when the console tries to show the HDR it'll either look the same as SDR, overly bright, or very washed out (depends on your TV). On X1X for me it just looked washed out. Once I turned off HDR the colors immediately popped way more rather than everything being a bit of a brown tint.

Got around to getting this yesterday. Pretty much went on blackout as I didn't read any reviews nor any posts in this thread.

My initial impression after 2 or 3 hours is that I love the slow pacing. Fits my style and my mood so much.

This is my new favorite chill out game. On Chapter 6 and taking it real leisurely, doing all the missions I can find (I assume you should hit all the white-colored ones before the yellow ones). I feel like the end is in sight but who knows, considering the nuts-butts non-ending of the first game.

I'm trying to play Red Dead Redemption 1 in order to be ready for this one, and honestly it hasn't been that great. The quests kind of suck so far, and the world isn't that interesting. How's RDR2 in comparison to the first?

RDR is GTA set in the west, RDR2 is a unique western game. The missions so far in 2 are pretty straightforward but the world itself is a lot more in depth than 1 and really feels like a living and working world.

Also 2 is a prequel if you care about playing in story order.

I was thinking the other week how this political time NEEDS A NEW GTA and that we don’t have one because we live in an era where R* games need 300 million dollars to make a game now and they take five years to make.

What I’m telling you is that this the longest this gta fan has gone without a new gta ever and we aren’t getting one till 2021-22 at best.

Will RDR2 scratch my GTA itch?

This game is in my opinion even better than GTA V so hell fucking yes.

Just expect a slow, methodical intro to everything. And set up the controls differently ( standard fps type, 0 deadzone, free aim ).

And take it slow, take in the amazing world.

Not in the slightest. It's much slower in both gameplay and story and there's no real social, cultural, or political commentary like a GTA would have. I'm not saying that in a bad way either, it's just a very different feel.

I did the challenge to drag someone from 3300 feet. That was pretty cathartic but I felt a slight sense of guilt at first.

Also, I was in that podunk town that all the black people live in when I finally decided to do the rob townfolk challenge. I just felt bad robbing from them. I also chose to leave the town before doing the dragging challenge. That's just too far for me.

What you wrote id true, but still it does scratch it quite a bit , even if also very different in some aspects. The heists and such, the criminal life style, the mission set ups, all very gta like.

So so so awesome. I had a ton of fun yesterday just exploring and looking for animals and herbs.

It seems like a good starting strategy is to upgrade your campground asap? I couldn't figure out where to craft things there - do I need to unlock this or complete a mission first? I can craft things with my mobile camp on the horse...

IIRC only the last town in RDR had high stakes games. Maybe it's a limiting factor on character wealth intentionally?

I would say thats they case - limit the kind of gear you can obtain earlier I guess. Apparently cash duping exploits have been found already however.

I think I read somewhere that high stakes games exist in RDR2 though

Red Dead Online: Playlists and Jobs Leaked
https://rockstarintel.com/red-dead-online-playlists-and-jobs-leaked/

All appear to be 16 player - A run down so you don't have to go through the pictures.

From the playlists -

 • Name your weapon - Kills with harder weapons grant more points - A pistol will get you lower points, a sniper will get you a high amount of points. (8 Teams / 4 Teams / 2 Teams / FFA)

 • Most Wanted - Rack up a killing streak getting killed resets your streak killing somebody with a high streak grants more points. (~FFA~)

 • Hostile territory - King of the hill (4 Teams / 2 Teams)

 • Team shootout - Standard team deathmatch (4 Teams / 2 Teams)

 • Make it count - One bullet elimination (Bow and Arrow / Throwing Knives variants)

 • Races - Horse races ( Checkpoint / race to a point modes)

And what looks like a few missions that lead you into jobs:

 • Highly Illegal and Highly Moral - What looks to be an introduction to the online morality system.

 • Honor among horse thieves - Learn horse rustling. I assume this will be our way of making money but maybe a capture the flag type mode? It's in the Jobs section but is listed multiple times with the same title like the ones in the playlists are. Capture the flag but using a horse you steal could be fun.

 • If the Hat fits/ The right side of the tracks/Where your morals lead you - Work with police to hunt criminals. Says it takes your honor into account so maybe you can't do this if your honor is too low.

 • Kerosene, Tar and Greed / More than one way to earn a buck - Some sort of job with an oil industry tycoon

 • Kill them each and every one - Kill people for money

 • Love and honour - More morality stuff regarding rescuing a woman from outlaws

Saint Denis is. Nice change of pace so far, but you can tell the game wasn’t built for cities. Only been there a few hours and I’m constantly getting in trouble for running into/over idiots that seem to want to jump out in front of me.

I'm currently in the South - chapter 3 - looking forward to the mansion mission!

Online seems pretty sweet, I played a few matches last night. I like the mode where you get more points depending on what weapon you use. I found an explosive bow and blew some idiots up for a massive score! Free roam unlocks and upgrades are very expensive, but there must be a few good methods of grinding cash.

Bring on the microtran$actions  :money

I am on the opposite end, I am 25 hours in and I think I am done. For a modern AAA game, RDR2 has the oddest design decisions I can remember. I can appreciate that to an extnt, but I feel my time is not being valued. I hate these long ass rides to the mission area that I just went to cinematic view and hold x while I do shit on my Ipad.
