  1. Sounds like you know a lot more detail than me, I'm just on my 2nd run-through, can't remember all the dialogue, though I do notice the relevant plot conversations. Hope I'm wrong and you can find it, just thought it made more plot sense to be only Arthur doing that bit...
  2. Liquor I think this happens a lot, I know I've been guilty in the past, I'm sure I'm not the only one. I think sometimes we can assume more meaning behind behaviour than there actually is. Random players will play randomly...
  3. I would have thought Oh Brother could only be done with Arthur, simply on the basis that Arthur's character is discussed, the sister talks about it. Could be wrong but I don't think it would work with John, it's about redemption, and John doesn't get his this game...
  4. It happens a lot joining Racing lobbies, it is just a timing thing, if you're lucky you get straight into a lobby. I don't mind a bit of spectating before a few races, but it's annoying when you're only joining one mission and have to watch another.
  5. I'm on my second play and can't believe how much I missed first time round, feel like I barely touched beyond the Story, though it didn't feel it at the time. I've been trying to keep the story on hold and find myself getting annoyed when I start a mission that 'moves things on', cos I know the atmosphere back at camp, well it don't get better do it? So I wanted to keep things at Chapter 2 and now I'm at Chapter 4. Must stop doing missions... but y'know, sometimes ye want those posse rides. 🙂 So far as the note goes, nope, I'll keep an eye out for it next time, ta.
  6. Yes, you need to go there, just sneak down the side of the river then creep up to him, you should manage it without getting caught, but don't go riding in.
  7. I've never met Gavin's friend on a horse, only on foot. Don't worry, he'll be fine...
  8. Think that might be it, they do get fright.
  9. Did you try aiming at it? I've come across invisible animals showing up in aim and have come across a (live) horse up to it's neck in road. It may have been a glitched predator.
  10. Nope, I only discovered the rock carvings and dreamcatchers 2nd time around, missed them completely first time. Sure you haven't a yellow mission open on your map? Check in Progress, Story, last mission (I think)
  11. There have been thousands of years of human history involving ever-changing waves of human immigration, shifting borders, rising and falling empires. In the past 2000 years I can think of very few successful Walls. (China, Hadrian's, Berlin spring to mind, but no others do...) None of them lasted long, none of them were successful in stopping the flow of human history, but in their favour each has provided their country with a popular tourist attraction. So, get in early, set up your tour company, and in say 20 years you could be running tours to view the "Trump Wall"... or what's left of it after it has been scavenged for shanty-town building...
  12. RDR2 is set in 1899, RDR is set in 1911. RDO is set just before or during the early events of RDR2.
  13. I think you may have hyperactivity issues. Don't you like to breathe between games? Let the adrenaline levels dip just a bit? Don't you like to check out the competition, make value judgements about their sad lives and cutting comments about their sad clothes? I know I do... You want me to saddle up, hunt, pick some seasoning, cook my supper, AND have a free-for-all before bedtime..? Oh! And it's not even bedtime, it's back into another game! You young'uns...
  14. I'm really surprised at that 22% figure, but only because I found the story so engrossing I couldn't stop. It wasn't an immediate hook, I was more entranced by the world to begin with, the weather, the scenery, the sounds, and I remember being distracted by Fallout 76 for all of 5 minutes a couple of weeks after RDR2 release, but when I got into it, I couldn't stop, and ended up a soggy crumpled heap on the floor in front of the screen by the climax. Never had that amount of investment in a game before, or a movie come to think of it. Then, just as I finished the Epilogues, Online opened, so that kept me amused for a bit, now I'm back with Arthur and I just got my hunting skills to the point where I'm never away from the Trapper and I look fabulous! But I'm lucky, I retired just in time, I think it would be difficult to play this game through AND have a normal life. I'm settling in for the long run.
  15. Yeah I bought some gold, a couple times. I don't have a problem considering the amount of value I have managed to extract from the original 50 squid payed for the game. We're already paying extra to play Online through PSN/XB subscription so it seems a bit quibbly, at least with the Gold I can give myself a day off from huntin an lootin and still look fabulous in a new hat...
  16. I hope the people who hold these heartfelt views about the game realise that when it sells 20 million in 2 months there are going to be a lot more than hardcore PvP players around who are quite glad of these defects, they make things possible that aren't possible in RL, (that's the whole point) and prevent this becoming the niche game some might prefer. Sorry, this is pop, this is mainstream, like it or not. And that's where R* customers are.
  17. Definitely a solo player, only dipped into GTAO when it opened, but the few times I've joined good working posses it has been really fun, I totally get it, but it's like panning for gold, if I join PosseUp 9 times out of 10 I join a gunfight, a hunting or fishing posse, or the leader sets a waypoint on the other side of the map (don't get that at all) If it's a dishonourable leader I spawn right out, I wish there was a choice, I don't want to bring my honour down. So recently I've gone back to solo playing Online, but I've mainly fallen back in love with Story mode, cos my hunting's suddenly got better and Arthur looks fab in his new gear!
  18. Oh if only... a punch even, a slap, a cutting remark or a sly dig, anything. I dislike the complete absence of interaction, it makes for an awful atmosphere at camp, and on the nights he's pitched my tent facing outwards, the mangy old muskrat, just awful. I try whistling but it doesn't help really... There is a part solution by forming a persistent posse, you get to choose your county, I've tied my camp to Scarlett Meadows, where I generally run around in aimless circles having fun and cackling (with the mic switched off thankfully...). It's called Scarlett's Hen Party but I don't imagine anyone else will ever turn up. It'll be just me and him and a bottle o beer. Cheers bigears...
  19. Yeah it depends where you are, you need to trigger that mission by visiting the saloon in Valentine which personally I often forget is there, I hang out in Smithfields mostly. I'm on a slow 2nd run too and have been surprised a couple of times by how slowly things open which I thought were earlier. I feel if that's where you are you're really quite early in the game and there are going to be a lot more characters for you to think about as it unfolds and I'm a bit jealous. Enjoy the game, don't worry, they'll show up, along with... just enjoy it. 🙂
  20. Armadillo is definitely a disappointment. When I spawn into New Austin, which seems every second time I spawn, my first mission is to get back to civilisation, I'm not saying I want to BE there, just that it's not entirely wasted, I enjoy the memories of what Armadillo is like *after* this...
  21. Just thought I would give a wee shout out for this film, currently showing on a popular movie streaming platform, just in case it had passed anyone by, it's by the Coen Brothers. I'm kinda surprised not to see it mentioned here, cos all the way through it screamed RDR2! at me. Loved it, loved the scenery, loved the characters, loved the humour, black as black as it was... Wonder how it would go down if they played it in the tent at Valentine..?
  22. Depends on what you mean by waste of space. For me the mission bits, where you shoot shoot shoot, they tell a good story, but if they weren't set in the beauty and detail of the awesome RDR2 world they would be like any other shootin game I see people mention on here. Many of the 20 million people in this world are here to sniff the flowers too y'know, and New Austin, while being far from my favourite state, has flowers of its own. From the anxiety-driven deathhole that is Tumbleweed to the empty solitude down by the San Luis River, to the deep dark stickyness of Thieves' Landing, there's plenty of very unwasted space down there... It's just a pity that Arthur can't get to see it...
  23. I think it's sweet that that would upset him... 😉
