Trailer 2 discussion

With the release of the second trailer I think it's time we talk about the direction of the game. 

Starting off with setting: The game looks like it will be set in  more forest and grassland than the previous title, with very little desert, mesa and badlands. I really don't like this, I found in the original the greatest moments where traveling through the deserts and canyons at night with a torch in hand to really feel the western spirit, I remember destinctly disliking tall trees and black water because of how generic and unapealing the environment was, this trailer has me worried, Mr morgan, who im guessing is a protagonist, is really odd looking, this might just be how often he looks directly at or beyond the camera to deliver lines or how bulbus and swollen his face is. I don't know, the first trailer had me beaming, this one left me a little concerned. 

I'd love to hear your thoughts on other elements that where shown off, and how you think they will differ from the original.

That's a guess. We've only seen a bit of the game.

Think you might be on your own there kid. Most people didn't get much out of the desert aspect of RDR.

Agree. Not what I expected from the main protag. Thought it would be someone younger, bit more rough round the edge. He just looks like an accountant.

I feel the same in terms of Arthur's looks being slightly odd.  I wouldn't say it is bad that he is older because to be Dutch's go-to guy (which appears to be the case) he would need to be more experienced. Maybe there will be a transition into him looking more rugged, growing a bears, ect as the story progresses but in general, it really isn't too important.

I personally like the different land areas and while it isn't all about the desert, far less in fact from the looks of it, I don't see how that will take away from the cowboy factor. There will still likely be desert areas I am sure just not as much depending on where it is actually taking place.

Greetings all.  First time to post on here, I've been a regular visitor looking for news since first playing and getting hooked on RDR earlier this year.

Anyway I'd like to point out that the new guy Mr Morgan looks like a re-worked version of Lincoln Clay from Mafia III (excellent game btw) to me.

R* are related companies with 2K aren't they??

Remember we supposed to get our hands on game in fall,I would say 90% of the work should be done by now

Remember it's been delayed till next year so 90% of the work probably hasn't been done.

I reckon it actually gets pretty involved and it's something I'd love to see a documentary on (a Rockstar AAA production style from design to shipping type of thing). Would have been awesome in this case because then we would hopefully have known what really caused the delay, what issues they encountered while creating the game, myths on the original design that was said to be in hell for a period of time a while ago, etc.

Another example from the one bit that I read up on a while ago was a piece on the voice actor used for Red Dead Redemption. You can read up on it over here - amazing how much effort and time it goes into getting voice (and also motion capture in this case) done from casting/auditions to recording and then eventually completed product.

Quote

 

Wiethoff entered the studio where the audition was being held, and was immediately greeted by 30 men dressed as soldiers. The session runner gave him his lines, and a basket of laundry. Say the lines and fold the laundry, he was told. Keep it natural.

He was rushed, nervous and didn't have enough time to learn his lines before he was thrown in front of the camera for a test.

"I had no idea what was going on," he says.

They filmed the short scene only once, and Wiethoff was allowed to leave. Thinking it very easily could have been a waste of time, he headed home. Both he and his agent had no idea what this was all about — until Wiethoff won the role only a few days later.

But Wiethoff is keen to stress the project wasn't what we know as Red Dead Redemption. The character of John Marston wasn't even fully formed, nor was the story — it had barely even been started. With so much work having been put into the game's technical demands, there wasn't much of a character to even explore.
