Old map new game speculation

Recommended Posts

Been thinking about RDR's map in the new game. I'm thinking Blackwater is to RDR2 what St. Louis/Westport were to early 19th century America. The gateway, the last bastion of civilization. I'm guessing that everything west (and south) of it will be lands mainly controlled by Native American tribes. Ghost towns won't be ghost towns but small islands in a hostile (no pun intended) sea. Think forts will be busy thriving places and I'd be surprised if any railroads there are anything more than a construction project.

 

I saw the German map that hinted at something being in Nuevo Pariso....after all it is an older civilization south of the river. Plus the cut screens of the Gila monster and background landscape can't really have any other location as I doubt they're going to put a high desert in the middle of the grizzly mountains or the open prairie.

 

But what do I know I'm just a 50 year old man with the excitement of an 8 year old boy on Christmas morning.

66yr old child here, never did enjoy Christmas morning (too many disappointments) sadly, but very very much looking forward to this long awaited sequel ...

No offense intended, it's just nice to play a game with people that can remember back to the 1890s who can tell us if the game was true to life.   hehehehehe

One of my favorite comrades in RDR was a old Vietnam Vet.  He was a hoot to run with.

So so true ... In fact, over here in the UK, retirement homes have started to install game consoles for the residents, it has been proven that gaming (with a controller especially), is improving mental agility, eye hand coordination etc in the older generation ...

Which reminds me .. need to check out the local homes, see who has the best connection speeds .. happy to supply my own console too, as long as the other old farts keep their hands off it... lmao

And here I thought I was an old gamer at the ripe young age of 40.  Likewise the last game I was this excited about was GTAV and that was 5 years ago.  I've gone media quiet after I watched the first teaser trailer for RDR2.  I love the surpirses you get from playing a game you don't really know anything about.

1 Day, 18 hours to go.

What's been cool for me is being there and playing those games during the dawn of mainstream consoles and PCs.  .....seeing just how far games have come since the 70's, 80s and beyond.   

I spent a lot of time in arcades during my youth before and during that time as well.

Ditto, arcades in the 60's consisted of pinball machines, that was it, but they held a fascination I never got rid of, my first home had one...   I found it at a cafe that was closing, hours and hours of fun, but free cause it was mine ...lol

Yeah....  Pinball machines were fun.  While not really the same, we had a pretty nice pachinko machine at home as a kid.   ....spent hours on that.  I think it's still somewhere in my Dad's garage.

What was nice about the early days of video games in arcades is that pinball machines still existed alongside them.   I'm sure they are still around but I haven't really stepped into one in many years.

I turn 22 this Friday, I was 13 when Red Dead Redemption came out and I've been waiting for another Red Dead game ever since so I hope this new installment proves to have been worth the wait. I'll add you next time I load up my Xbox.

I think early play of this game should be reserved for those of us who actually wore a leisure suit or a butterfly collar when they were first popular.

And you're married?? Wow, you must have an understanding wife! I'm still about 15 - 20 years away from retirement, and even THEN, I can't see her being fine with me gaming all day every day.

My father-in-law never misses an opportunity to remind me of this.

I'm semi-retired myself.   ......still about 15 years from "official" retirement. 

I don't game in the day during the week though.  I dunno, just feels weird (for me) if I do.   Occasionally I will on weekends though but definitely during the evening.

Had my share of forgettable outfits from the 70s when I was a kid.  .....ugh.

@Cokeyskunk you made me remember something funny happened this week: so i am getting ready to go to work, so is my lady, and  and as always she is late and behind...So i started to watch a vid of the story of the development  of red dead redemption. My lady barely understand english but she has heard "red dead redemption" many times over the years and specially this year with all the hype...and then she bursts: red dead redemption!! Red dead redemption!! Is all i hear in this house!!! Red dead redemption!!! I can't see the time when it gets released so i don't have to listen anymore "red dead Redemption"!!!

Me: and i am up to here with your reality shows and the rundowns of the reality shows and the rundowns of the rundowns!!!...

At the end...she took the car and i had to put on my spurs and walked to my job...like a true cowboy...

I throw out a couple of speculations because I'm curious what other people are thinking while they wait....and y'all just talk about (me) being old and playing games.

Being old sucks. The alternative sucks way, way worse. Playing games is still fun....and easier if you are old. Though the reflexes have slowed, the wallet has fattened.

What still amazes me is, I still actually feel some excitement at the prospect of a new game .. happened with Destiny2, sadly that was a letdown at the time .. this though has me chewing at the bit, yes, agree, slower reflexes, but can afford stuff like elite controllers, they help a lot, awesome 100% wireless headsets with full surround sound, a chesterfield button back executive chair with swivel. rock, vibrate and is heated .. everything in 4K for awesome visuals ... old sucks indeed, so do everything in style, you can't take a wallet with you, fat or otherwise, f**k  giving it to the kids, I earned it, I intend to spend it ... lol
