Got the game pre-orderd and predownloaded/installed. Been avoiding all spoilers besides stuff from the trailers and previews.

Having it ready to play Thursday night is dope, download or install is 87.87 GB on Xbone. Have 80 GB about done now. Being so close to playing the game is torture.

I don't get this game... besides killing and robbing, everything else I can (and mostly have done) in real life.  Same ol' R* with a new coat of paint I suppose.  Ya'll enjoy yoself.  Game sure looks purdy.

Quote
From tip to tail, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a profound, glorious downer. It is the rare blockbuster video game that seeks to move players not through empowering gameplay and jubilant heroics, but by relentlessly forcing them to confront decay and despair. It has no heroes, only flawed men and women fighting viciously to survive in a world that seems destined to destroy them.

Itís pretty impressive considering you can get a X1X rdr2 and another game for less than a 2070.

Canít trade in an OG Xbox one for $200 towards an x at GameStop right now and they have a bundle with rdr2 and fallout 76 for $460.

I told my bro in law to take advantage. I think you get $250 if itís a one S

Really? So you canít trade in the x1x towards the bundle but only towards the $499 one with no games?

Ducking GameStop man. That makes no sense.

Itís still not an awful deal, but $260 out of pocket with two new games is a really good deal

Game is pretty cool so far. Certainly has the same weighty feel to it, with your guy feeling like Geralt at times moving around. I don't really mind it, but it's one of those things some people truly hate about rockstar games. They also double down hard on showing all animations and more boring sequences, which I at times wished I could just skip in the first one.

 But man it feels good to ride out on a mission, the world is obviously great and it just chill as fuck to ride your horse around. They nailed that even better than the first one.

looking at getting a second hand console for this, and goddamn, x1x is about $100 more retail here than PS4 pro, but the secondary market for the x1x has bottomed out. 5 of em selling locally starting at a dollar reserve, some recently closed sold for a little over 300  :lol less than half the retail here. guess I'm getting an x1x for this  :doge

I sent a pm but canít tell if it went through correctly. My  bil got both to stack, I guess the trade in works towards the state of decay bundle, and then rdr2 knocks off another hundred when bought with the console. Iíd say you have decent odds of getting the deal as long as the employee on that day isnít a dick.

Edit: not sure if youíre in Vegas with your tag, but my bil is, so if you are I can probably hit you with the exact GameStop he went to

WHY
Meh. GTAV sold like hotcakes once it finally hit PC more than a year later. T2 would be stupid to not milk this cash cow. Right now, it's in their best interest to say "no", just to not cut into console sales. I won't believe for one second that they'll follow the pattern of Red Dead games not coming to PC "just because."

As for why the previous Red Dead didn't get one:
Quote
ďAmazing news, I'm buying L.A. Noire [for PC] day one! But why no plans for Red Dead Redemption? I would buy that tooÖ and I have a looot of friends who would do the same!Ē - Andysk8
ďHas Rockstar abandoned the PC platform???Ē - Simbala

We hope that with the announcement that L.A. Noire is coming to PC this fall, and the knowledge that our next big game Max Payne 3 will have a PC release (plus that weíve released both Grand Theft Auto IV and the Episodes from Liberty City for PC), we can finally put to rest any misconceptions that weíve Ďabandoned the PC platformí. We do know that, yes, there is just one title absent from our PC release plans Ė that game of course being Red Dead Redemption, and of course weíre well aware that some fans have been asking for it. All we can say is that whenever it is viable (technically, developmentally and business-wise) for us to release a game for PC (or any other particular platform)  Ė we will and we usually do; unfortunately, that is just not the case 100% of the time for all platforms. To PC gamers, we hope that between the Grand Theft Auto titles, and the forthcoming L.A. Noire and Max Payne 3, youíll have plenty of great Rockstar action to enjoy.
Make of that what you will. I've heard it said before that Red Dead was so hacked together that it would have been too difficult/expensive at the time (and that technical issues were in part to blame for the infamous crunch and subsequent "Rockstar wives" story), but I find it hard to believe that a company with their resources can't make it happen. But then they still haven't, after all this time, so... /shrug

If the reasons really are technical, I would love to see a detailed overview of just how much of a hackjob Red Dead was.

I got to Chapter 2. This is definitely a slower paced game compared to the majority of major games nowadays. I love the slower pacing myself. The writing and characterization feels a lot more mature for a Rockstar game, great stuff.

Like, I have only good things to say after a few hours. Many people are not enjoying the slow burn style of this game.

If you find RDR1 to be a better game than RDR2, that's some basic bitch shit. One is rooted in the GTA3 styled Rockstar formula, while the other feels like a big step forward for open world games.

If someone was around 12 or something and RDR1 was their first open world game, that opinion would make sense. If you're a fan of open world games or Rockstar games, have played all of their major releases, RDR2 feels like a fundamentally different game in the genre.

"RDR1 is better than RDR2" would be similar to saying "GTA3 is better than San Andreas". The scope, mechanics, and features in RDR2 obliterate what's in RDR1.

If you don't care about attention to detail and immersion in the games you play, don't get RDR2. If you want a brisk, action packed, set piece filled open world game, RDR2 doesn't fit that criteria. Its a slowly paced survival RPG action hybrid, this is not a typical AAA game.

Rockstar hasn't outright denied a PC version. From what I've surmised, they would have to rebuild the entire game of RDR1 from the ground up in order for it to work on any other hardware (that includes PS4 and XBO). That's why we haven't seen a "Remaster" even though it would have been a very easy decision financially for them to do so.

Them not announcing it makes sense, probably waiting for the nex gen consoles to be out before they even announce it on PC though. :doge

Seeing all the cool lighting and shadowing in the DF video. This game seems like a prime candidate for some RTX support.

I mean I was pretty immersed and felt there was plenty of detail in the first one. Which also allowed you to carry a buttload of weapons.

Iíve only played maybe an hour or two so I havenít seen what this survival stuff your talking about is. But all the talk of all the little mechanics seem like it could get tedious. Nice animation is nice, but sometimes I just want to loot someone and move on.

Game seems to open up at chapter 2. Still doesn't give you the whole world to explore though.

The press x to watch some dialogue play out was also there in the first game. At least I didn't have to do a fucking cowherding mission yet.

Shitposting? Ok dude.

This is a valid question. As pretty much the same thing happen to GTA4 which shifted tone and priorities  and effected mission design. Making for a pretty divisive game.

As someone who has also played every Rockstar game since three and is also a fan. I appreciate thier games, but Iím also aware when they are up thier own ass.

I actually thought about the launch of big Rockstar games, and how me and my deceased brother would play and bond right when the games came out. It made me think about my brother and made me quite sad, he loved older GTA games, he loved Max Payne. I wish he got to see how far this genre has gone. These are just videogames, but I forgot how me and my brother used to connect.

And then I think about this thread on The Bore, where me calling out an incredibly obvious troll post, discusssing how this new RDR is a slow game, I get called a Rockstar shill for showing a semblance of a fuck about this game, what this game is.

I was expecting this thread to at least be an okay thread to discuss this game, but nope! Rhax and Seagrams, you're fine, you have legit criticism and concerns and you guys voiced those opinons in non shitty ways.

You Wrath, should find the gnarliest and largest dick possible and choke on it. You put me in the sourest of moods and you can truthfully fuck off. Can't even talk about a fucking videogame without someone trying to devalue any shit I post about it immediately.

The shill is leaving this thread. Have fun guys.

I actually thought about the launch of big Rockstar games, and how me and my deceased brother would play and bond right when the games came out. It made me think about my brother and made me quite sad, he loved older GTA games, he loved Max Payne. I wish he got to see how far this genre has gone. These are just videogames, but I forgot how me and my brother used to connect.

i was really looking forward to this and so far i'm pretty bored. there's a whole lot of holding x to watch guys ride horses for minutes at a time, like the GTA expository dialogue car rides but you don't even have to steer. whole thing feels weirdly on-rails so far

Iíve only put in maybe 45 minutes and itís prrtty heavy on cutscenes and slow animations.

Iím still open minded but the pacing so far is not that interesting.
yeah the animation thing is weird. the part where you

pick up john marston
was especially odd. the control was really weird, so i tried wandering off the cliff to see if it was possible, and eventually no matter what direction i pushed the stick i walked to the point i was supposed to go to continue.  there are a couple points before that suggested that you weren't allowed be 'out of bounds' of scenario they want you to be in

returning from the hunting mission, i shot at the bear much to my buddies chagrin, it charged and killed me, and after reloading the checkpoint it either skipped that encounter entirely or loaded outside of the town i was supposed to be at

not to say i'm writing it off after ~3 hours but that and the pacing are kind of surprising and a bit of a turn off out of the gate
