  1. I also had ONE 1* Bison in the Heartlands and they are nearly always in a herd usually. I hope R* fixes all these bugs soon because right now, the game is almost unplayable.
  2. Yes, there'll be thunderstorms and snow and likely rain.
  3. I am not one to replay a game, especially big ones. I have no desire to even replay Detroit: Become Human! I don't know why I can't bring myself to replay a game. I want to play as a good guy in my play through, so I'm tempted to replay as a bad guy but possibly not go through the campaign again and just see how that affects gameplay. I will probably spend time in RDR2's universe like I used to in GTA games, where you just mess around or enjoy the universe, relax and do what you like. I tend to take my time in campaign games. I don't rush through them so I can enjoy everything, just in case I don't go through the campaign again.
  4. Yes, I'm happy about it. I enjoy and prefer single player campaigns. I was apprehensive about the three protagonists in GTAV but they totally pulled it off. That design wouldn't fit in this one though and RDR1 had one protagonist so there's no harm in doing it again and focusing on and getting to know the one character. It seems they've more than made up for it by having such a large gang full of unique characters we can get to know.
  5. You will no doubt be able to purchase or create outfits. His hair and beard grows so you could leave him an unshaven, dirty mess or clean him up (literally) and have his beard and hair cut in a style you prefer. If Arthur drops/loses his hat, he can go back to retrieve it but it's unlikely that you would be able to find it if you're going fast on your horse during a shootout and it comes off then.
  6. How exactly are you meant to prepare? October happens to be a busy month for me; I'm going to the other side of the planet for my brother's wedding and a once in a life time holiday and second year of uni starts just before that holiday. Most of September is going to be spent preparing for uni and for our holiday. After the holiday, I'll literally be studying all the time and before I know it, RDR2 will be at my door! ❤️ I still can't help thinking about it and for a long time, I've been more excited about RDR2 than my holiday, but now my holiday is approaching, my mind has shifted and I am focused on the events coming first; I'll enjoy RDR2 afterwards.
  7. The introduction of cents is still new though. If I remember correctly, RDR1 would involve betting a minimum of a dollar which is $30 today - you don't bet $30 a time. I think this will be seen in shops and other places, considering guns are advertised for just $2.
  8. Damn right! It's what R* does best and what their fans appreciate.
  9. They called it the "walking simulator" because the guy playing the demo only walked around for a while and didn't do anything else. The guy doing the demo was boring, but I'm sure he was under strict instructions not to show too much or any real gameplay. Plus, most have said it's still going to be a fantastic and beautiful game, just the demo was boring. Another has said that those who enjoyed the first will enjoy this one and is still a GOTY contender and they won't judge on one mission. Someone who claimed to have dozed off and hadn't played the first RDR1, still said the demo made them excited to play it, so I would totally ignore all the negativity that came out of the Gamestop employees. I always feel GS employees are the type to love games like WoW and Minecraft and probably boycott games like GTAV and don't fully understand these types of games.
  10. Their loss! I've tried to inform my parents of the game but no-one is interested.
  11. I'd be surprised if they let us do bounties seeing as Arthur and the gang would be on the run from the authorities most of the game; Arthur bringing them a criminal would result in him being locked up too!
  12. In the scene where the gang are playing a card game and betting, they're betting with cents. RDR1 only used dollars, whereas RDR2 will contain cents and use them more realistically. 15 cents in 1899 = $4.55. On RDR2 merch, there is a gun being advertised for $2 shown in the video which equals to $60. Guns in this game will likely cost $2-40 which is equivalent to $60-1200, whereas in RDR, they were being sold for around $125. There is a chance that stealing from someone, betting or completing small missions, we will be rewarded with $1 ($30) or less. Dutch stealing $150,000 in bank notes = $4.5 million today. The gang will no doubt get pretty rich after their bank robberies, but even having $100 in your pocket is equivalent to $3k! Bounties in RDR1 would give $240 for a live bounty which is worth about $6K. I am glad that we may be using money more realistically in the game, not getting hundreds of dollars for a mission or from stealing from people. How do you feel about it? Do you hope that this is a definite feature in RDR2? Or do you wish it would be like RDR1?
  13. I'm not sure how to feel about them copying a movie scene, unless the actual mission is a lot different to the plot of that scene/movie. I like to think R* use their own ideas whilst being inspired by Western movies, but not copying them. Great video though!
  14. R* haven't been sitting around since we saw the first trailers! The graphics seem to have been improved and refined since the first trailers we saw. I am surprised at how much the general store has been altered since the first trailers we saw.
  15. The RDR1 debut trailer has less than a million views, despite people revisiting it in recent years after the RDR2 announcement, yet RDR2's trailer has 5 million views in 4 days, so I get a strong feeling it'll be a big hit.
  16. There is a good chance I will not be online as I do not buy Playstation plus at all, so unless it's free to play online with RDR:O like a couple of games have been in the past, then you won't see me around. However, you can still add me on PSN if you'd like to keep tabs on my gaming - NEUR0TICS0ULS
  17. I was referring to units, as in video games sold. I agree that there may be 10 million units sold on launch day, there's probably already a good portion already waiting on pre-order. GTA 5 has 85 millions units sold since it's release like 5/6 years ago, so I'd say in the next five years, it would've sold approx 40 million units. I think the marketing for RDR2 is a lot stronger this time round, I think they'll sell a lot more than the 18 million for RDR1, possibly more than double that. I have seen a bunch of people who hadn't played RDR1 be interested in RDR2 due to the hype and it probably helps it's a prequel so newcomers can get a taste without really needing to play RDR1. I hope more people give it a go and it gets the attention and love it deserves!
  18. GTA5 has shipped 85 million copies (reportedly) since it launched, but RDR1 shipped approximately 15 million units. RDR1 had such great reception and maybe the lower amount of units sold was due to it being the "first" in the series and first proper open world cowboy game. I hope that RDR2 will ship more because R* certainly deserve it for all their effort. How many units do you think it will sell upon release/in the first year, approximately?
  19. I just noticed there's children in the game play video, aside from Jack? Although there was one child in the beginning of RDR1 selling the newspaper, so it may be a cut scene.
  20. Here is the link What do you think? It's probably genuine, the narrator said deadeye has evolved and so has hunting. Maybe that's what she means.
  21. I'm a physical copy person. I like to have it there so I can either sell it on in future or keep it for nostalgia and maybe future play throughs. I tend to keep games I enjoyed anyway and sell on the ones who didn't get all my love. You can't sell on digital copies and if your account gets compromised, you'd lose them.
  22. I agree with this. RDR2 improves on everything in RDR1 and then some! It'll be great, I'm sure. R* rarely lets me down.
  23. After watching the trailer, I'm still blown away. The graphics, the immerssiveness, the lighting, the animals... gaaahh! Even being able to groom your horse?!?! ???? I love the horse behaviours too because no horse behaves perfectly 100% of the time. This seems to be the truest cowboy game there is! I'm more of a point and shoot person (and I'm used to that in RDR1), but the amount of work they've put into the physical brawls adds a whole new dimension we didn't have in RDR1. The characters feel so sturdy and movements are so smooth and natural, it looks excellent! I love the option to defuse a situation with criminals instead of them just shooting at you when you're trying to do your own thing like hunt. Everything feels so... solid, like it should be there and the characters seem sturdy in themselves. I can't explain it so I hope someone else knows what I mean and can explain it better. I can't wait for the next video!
  24. I think it's unlikely to be a feature at launch as it's not something they usually do, but you never know, they may add an option in the menu for true immersion! I personally enjoy playing third person and seeing the character's movements and how they interact with the world. I am more used to that play style. I am beyond excited now after that gameplay trailer - it blew me away. I'll be watching it 100 more times and making my parents watch it! Do you know when the next one will be released? Maybe it'd be mentioned in that one if it's a possibility.
