Forums - Gaming Discussion - Red Dead Redemption reveal at 10:00AM Central (11 Eastern)

 

As expected some characters and story but no gameplay. Going to be a looong wait. RDR is one of my all time favs...I wish they'd do a remaster and I sure hope they'll release RDR2 on PC this time. I'm sure they will.

Pretty dissapointed
when are we getting some gameplay????



Having problems to adapt to the tone and voice of the protagonist. I miss my Marston.



Seems we're definitely playing as a previously unknown member of Dutch's gang, Arthur Morgan. I'm kind of disappointed there doesn't seem to be multiple playable characters though, was hoping we'd have a few charatcers to switch between like in GTA V. I'm also disappointed that Morgan seems to be more of a bad guy than a good guy, one thing I really liked about John in RDR1 is that he was at least trying to be a good person, and you could play him as a good person thanks to the morality system in the game. Don't really like the idea of being forced to play a bad guy in game, I avoid playing bad guys wherever possible because I'm just too nice in real life, it makes me feel like a bad person if I play a bad character. 



That's it? Just a trailer? Meh...



You know it deserves the GOTY.

No 4K on the trailer is kind of strange. I doubt that either PS4 or XB1 X will manage native 4K, but they should at least be able to pull off 1440p checkerboard and 1800p checkerboard on it respectively, so they could have shown one of those for the trailer. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and say that neither the X nor the Pro build are finished enough for them to show yet.

Rockstar knows that the vast majority will play it on the base consoles so they probably want to be fair and show them how it will look on those. I'm pretty sure this wasn't even Pro/X1X/PC footage in that trailer....looked good but not spectacular. Kind of the same approach Sony do in a lot of their trailers (e.g. God of War). I like that.

I actually welcome a bad guy perspective, although I know how you feel. I used to avoid doing bad or evil actions in games but I learn to not really give a damn. I think a lot of people will gravitate to a more morally devious protagonist and it makes perfect sense at the time, the old west was kinda full of assholes and degenerates. Now, if he isn't at least likeable or charismatic or interesting for that matter (a la Trevor from GTAV) then who would wanna put up with playing asshole the entire game?

I'm just glad it isn't a pre-quel (i think?), not a fan of prequels. EDIT:: Never mind, it's a sequel, ah well.

HAHAHA, yea right. Like a company wouldn't show the most highly polished, graphical masterpiece they have. They always show off the prettiest graphics.

And why wouldn't a company. When showing off your new toy/car/game wahtever, you always show the one with all teh bells and whistles. Ever seen a car commercial? They show off the 50k version care, yet at the end they list starting at $25k. They never show that 25K version that has no sunroof, no leather seats, none of the super special new safety features, ect. They show off the luxary version and yet list the economy versions price.



i wanted more but its fine enough for now
