What do you think of RDR2 so far? (for those who are playing it)

Forums - Gaming Discussion - What do you think of RDR2 so far? (for those who are playing it)

I'm getting frustrated with the game mechanics again. The gambler challenge is a dead end at the win 3 hands at black jack with 3 hits or more. It's so rare that happens it's painful. I tapped the x button for an hour and a half while doing other things and not once would the rng let me draw 3 cards without either busting or hitting 21 before the 3rd hit. I only saw one other player manage hitting 3 cards (and still losing). Blackjack is so slow.

I paid off my bounties as bounty hunters started turning up as often as random battles in final fantasy. Btw it's way more lucrative to loot dead bounty hunters than the actual crime. For the bandit challenge I now have to rob townsfolk for a total of $50. Since the average person only seems to have 50 cents on them and the whole police force turns out as soon as you do anything in town, never mind.

Tomahawk kills on birds of prey, really! Can't find the other berries to eat, fishing is soo boring, still no train (well I had one, yet no birds for the kill 5 birds from a moving train, then the train stopped with 6 bounty hunters waiting). Can't find any bears now I need to hunt them and my horse just keeps running into things. So I made a short compilation of that.

Guess where the music is from :)

Back to GT Sport next week as my favorite track will be back on!

fishing is what I have done most in this game. especially when i just want to sit back and relax



I have to agree that the start is kind of slow. I didn't yet make it past that bump, but I'm sure I'll enjoy the game after it opens up and did love RDR. On the other hand I picked up AC:Odyssey and couldn't put it down for 9 hours straight... so I'd say they got their early game set up better than RDR:2.

I made time lapse videos to sit back and relax. Fishing is fine as long as I don't catch anything. For one side mission I spend 10 minutes trying to reel in some epic fish. My right thumb burning from trying to rotate the stick, switching to my index and middle finger trying to rotate that effing stick. Accessibility options go further than hold instead of tap!

I haven't fired up the game anymore since last week. GT Sport is back in the drive and likely to stay there. I would love to hear some impressions of the multiplayer as the beta should be rolling out soon. I imagine lots of crowds in the popular fishing spots all happily fishing next to each other :)

Well, I don't play it as much either still to the far west on my map with no intent on going back to shadybelle so I'm probably going to be on chapter 4  forever. I im curious about multiplayer but doubt I'll play it refuse to pay for psplus after sony banned my IP for no reason 2 yrs ago a week after I subscribed and refused to give me a refund or simply unban my ip



Still think its an awesome game but there's so much content i will be taking a break between each chapter to complete other games.



Took me 120 hours to get to the credits anyway this week online is up I wonder how it will feel.






I haven't played this game in a while but I stumbled on an old thread on another forums and looks like after the latest patch there has been some downgrade I'm a little sad by it since I didn't notice anything bad with the original but it was first brought to the attention of PS4 Pro owners who then wondered if the XB1X version also got a downgrade and looks like it has. It's most notable on Valentine particularly the outside of the general store.

I don't know if this is a big deal for some but I was surprised by it.
