BUT THE BENZ

Lel good Times, when a R* game banner/poster was on walls somewhere in your area. 2013, I remember the huuuge Banner of Trevor pointing towards his CUT HERE tattoo hanging from a building site in Berlin right where THE Wall used to stand. Thinking about it now, it was THE spot to advertise really. I'd cross that bridge that led along the Wall everyday at that time, and everytime i saw it i felt excited about what's to come.

 

Or in 2012, when a Max Payne 3 poster was hanging in the bus station Right in Front of my house. Well, good times

Personally, I'm anti hero all day. So playing as Dutch wouldn't be a bad idea to me. I would prefer a new protagonist personally, but if R* could nail telling that story while capturing the untold story of Dutch Gang & etc simultaneously would be cool imo. I would like to experience the unheroic cold, murderous John Martson, how he survived being left for dead, where he got his scars. The leadership of Dutch, him losing his mind etc. But DON'T take the immersion away from the main protagonist. But my faith is in R*, and however it goes down i know R* will nail it most likely.

Just personal preference, of course, but I like being a good guy. So maybe we're a young new member of Dutch's gang who's reluctant to be a bandit (after something goes wrong halfway through the game, so we can have our share of criminal activities).

 

I'd prefer not to be a companion to John, I just wouldn't want to see him all the time and not being able to play as him. That's why I'd prefer if we have a much younger gang altogether and the game ending with them "rescuing" John as a kid. (and then for the post-story content, being able to play as him as a teen).

(And for the multiple-protagonist theory, I wouldn't mind it if done right. I think last gen's limitations made it impossible to have three great stories, so it was just one story with three people.

Can the current gen handle more than one full story in the same world? Then maybe we could have both the decent fella and Dutch).

The Housers will never leave Rockstar. They made it what it is today.

The Housers will never leave Rockstar. They made it what it is today.Off course they were the Founding staffs plus they have some shares in Take-Two Interactive awarded to them years ago same with Social Point founders after their company was acquired. By the time T2 gets to $15-20 Billion in market capitalization it will be crazy if the Housers leave unless they retire and install someone from North or San Diego. However we are talking 5-10 years and things changes overtime, maybe GTA and RDR have become AR/VR and Mobile blockbusters or T2 has been acquired or Rockstar just makes online-only and/or episodic games.

 

Note-Edit: In before "stop talking about T2" well we can talk about Rockstar so it owner T2 will certainly be involved.

The Housers have been crucial to the success and popularity of Rockstar Games. The willingness of R*'s management to write about niche stories and worlds is the reason that today we have Red Dead, Bully and even Grand Theft Auto. Sure you can find hundreds of first person shooters and games about mutant monsters, but where else would you be able to find an original Western game like Red Dead? R* has brilliant technical teams, but without a vision and a will to create original ideas, their brilliance might've been put into creating yet another game about mutant monsters and laser guns.

Well people get annoyed because you jump at the chance to mention Take-Two Interactive, Social Point or whoever, even if they aren't the point of discussion. It's one thing to be interested in the business and numbers side of the industry and gleaning whatever insight you can from those, it's another to make fantastical conclusions and wildly speculate what they're going to do in the future cause they've hit $X billion in market capitalisation or whatever. I'd never deter somebody from something they're interested in, but don't expect other people to be interested, this is a RDR2 thread and most people here simply just don't care about Take-Two.

Rockstar should make a spin-off game from one of their popular franchises exclusive to mobile phones. It should be a Hit.

 

Note: GTA Chinatown Wars was so ahead of it time.

He reminds me of that guy "AgentGTAVI". That dude wrote posts as long as a whole book. And he did it in the super analyst-ish way too.

The next GameInformer issue should be announced next week. That's probably the best bet right now.

There's none. Rockstar doesn't make individual pages for their franchises. They just have their own page.

Nope, the week after next. Likely to be Destiny 2 to be honest.

They indeed have an official Facebook page for each of their games, they're even verified. The Red Dead Redemption one is indeed gone for some reason. If you go on the RDR UN one (https://www.facebook.com/RedDeadRedemptionUndeadNightmare/?fref=ts), you can see on the right the pages liked by this page. There's the Rockstar page and the Red Dead Revolver page, but no RDR.

Let the speculation begin ... are they preparing a big overhaul in preparation for RDR2 info blowout??? Most likely, for what else reason would they take down the RDR fb page?

If that were the case why remove it? They likely just create a new page for RDR2 so why remove RDR's?
