So what is wrong with Rockstar?


Recommended Posts

I seriously just do not get it.

You (Rockstar, I know... no rockies here) create this "large" map for foks to go online on... and then you limit on what ppl can do there. You make "roles" such as moonshiner, collector, bounty hunter, trader (let's call that hunter right?). But it ends there. Nothing besides these roles you purchase for 15 gold... exists. I mean hey... I'm a 48 year old male portraying to be a 18 year old girl. But you can only see that when I have you at gun point, or you just killed me.

But I am a roleplayer. You know the first thing I went to check out in both story and online... whilst being an hardcore atheist... is if any of the churches were accessible. Seriously Rockstar? We are talking 1899-sum... and at no time in the day is there a church service ever available,.,.. ... ever? No church can be entered! What were you thinking? I was seriously hoping for some priest to tell me about doom and daisies. But no,... no church is ever open ever.

And then the clothes. I may seriously be called an online crossdresser. In every game I play,... when I have the change... I play girls. When I want to relax and play a game, I also want something pretty to look at.  Miss pacman did not do it for me. But I surely played Laura Croft, with her first edition pointy pyramids of boobs. (Btw, I also played Larry Laffer with Passionated Patty!)

So RDO is a western game. Did rockstar devs ever watch westerns? The female character... she mostly is a victim of some sorts... raped by natives or bandits... but the female main in any western movie... wears white. White is an indication of purity an innocence. Not racially mind you,... but religiously,... Catholicism. And in many cultures too..., white is considered "pure". So then strikes me, when  you can create a character of 18 (sweet young) years and up... that they have nothing at all to wear that may show them, to be sweet innocent and god loving... in a western rockstar world.

Most of the female stuff is pure trailer trash wear. Did rockstar even consult a period fashion designer? Wat? Was that outta-budget?

So I just do not get it. So much space and potential. All wasted on... pure pvp... Which does not work anyway. Ha yes did I mention I am a solo player? Joining "The Dandies"... waiting for an hour for other  players to join up. Seriously.. FO ROCKSTAR. Thank you for reminding me why I never bothered with GTA online. Same ****ing issues. Rockstar makes this whole incredible world of intertaction... yet misses out on the (roleplayt potential) interaction. .,.. And misses out completely.

I wish I could jump ahead ten years,...  when games actually allow you to do 100 times more then games allow you to do now. Which is little to sh*t.

Yes, as you guessed it, this is not an official forum for R* or Take Two.  In order to contact them directly to submit your suggestions, you can go here:

https://www.rockstargames.com/reddeadonline/feedback?redirect_lang=en_us

One other thing I'd like to point out is that this site is comprised of a community of various backgrounds, political and religious affiliations / beliefs, etc.  While there is not a problem specifically with what you posted here, I'd always ask that that folks please remember that and respect that others may not feel the same way they do in that regard.  RDR2.org is a RDR2 fansite after all.  .....not a platform to stump for personal beliefs on sensitive subjects, etc.  Again, not saying you are but I just want to make sure we're on the same page so we don't head that way.

 

Anyhow, I'd like to say welcome to the site.  As for churches not being open, there are a lot of buildings that are not accessible in the game.  

In regard to content (or lack thereof according to some), RDO has grown quite a lot from the beta days and there are more businesses, properties, etc. to come.  It's going to take time but just like GTAO, RDO will have a lot more as time goes on.   

.....btw, I am moving this to the Online section.

How?

If you choose a male character, you only have access to male clothes.

If you choose a female character, your default clothes will be female clothes and being up close wont make a difference.

Please forgive my curiosity.

I have a beef with Rockstars fashion sense also. It's obvious that they spent a ton of time and money on the weapons but yet they make me tuck my pants into my boots.

I have worn boots all of my life and haven't tucked my pants into my boots since I was 6 years old! It's just the wrong way to do it. It looks stupid and unless you're knee deep in pigshit, there is no reason to do it that way. Pants should be worn on the outside to prevent sand, bugs and other garbage to filter down into your footwear. The last thing you need when at full gallop, cruising down I-75, is a friggen wasp stinging the p!ss out of your foot!

So yea, I agree with Junko. Let the ladies (and gentlemen) have some nice threads and let us old guys see a little ankle before we are shot in the back on the streets of Blackwater.🙂

The pvp is this game is an after thought.  They have put zero focus or effort in PVP.  Its just sort of there...

 

 

As far as fashion goes.  IMO R* has already went waaaay over board with it.   Theres to much.  Also the pink and bright colors.

 

Females, in the wild west did not all wear white.  Theres plenty of images online of wild west females.  The wear a lot of black.

You can wear pant legs tucked inside or outside boots by choice in Story Mode. Seems odd the mechanic isn't extended to Online.

There is an option at least on some of them to either tuck or wear over your boots.  As for why someone would tuck them in, it could be to help keep the mud off their pant legs when walking around the streets, etc. during or after rain, etc.

Yeah I do both depending on Jims outfit:-

When you are putting items like shirts & trousers on, check the bottom right of the screen for a MODIFY option - this allows you to tweak boots & shirt sleeves & collars - this is the same in campaign & Online

Gunfighter - Shirtsleeves rolled up & Vest no coat, Boots under Trousers with spurs

The Van Cleef outfit - likewise, boots with spurs under trousers - Coat & Vest on

Hunter & Cowpoke outfits - boots outside trousers ready for sloshing through blood, snot, rivers & innards

Thanks, guys! You're gonna turn me into a dude in no time.😮

I've also learned:

  1. Pants over boots = Pimp from St. Denis
  2. Pants tucked into boots = Doofus from Tumbleweed
  3. One leg tucked, One leg not = Murfree bro from Annesburg 

Now all I need is a new hat to replace the one I found on a dead guy.

Born and raised on a ranch in Texas, I can tell you that those folks who wear their pants tucked in are called "sh*t kickers".   We have a saying for those folks.  "All hat and no cattle."  Not saying I never tucked my pants into my boots.  But if I did it was for a specific reason and didn't last once that chore was completed.   

Female clothing in RDO is fine.  It's the male clothing that is not designed to fit properly on the female frame.  Most coats especially, just look like your female character is walking around in a potato sack.  I just don't wear them.  Some of the newer coats fit better and the ones designed for the female toons are fine also. 

Well, PVP may be an afterthought but it sure as hell gets a lot more attention than any cooperative play.  I wish we could more easily form up temporary Posse's to perform specific missions, and events.  Sort of just like the invite process for the story missions only expanded for bounty hunting, moonshine missions, etc.  Just take the hassle out of finding cooperative folks to accomplish missions and the like with.  And while they're at it, add more cooperative play styles.  The biggest failure in this game, imo., is the near total lack of strong and lasting cooperative play and goals. (Outside of pvp)

Well, that and all of the damn bugs.  The game is hardly playable atm, if you ask me.
