I'm sort of leaning towards Bourbon... maybe Irish whiskey? Was Scotch prevalent in this time period??  

Maker's Mark 46 my friend. A game of this caliber calls for a good, Straight Kentucky Bourbon.

I will have the 26th off of work and I don’t have class that day so I plan on sleeping as long as I can Thursday evening, also preparing with snacks, Taco Bell, and soda. Then (hopefully my pre download is fully complete) I will start playing right at midnight. Probably play as long as I can keep my eyes open. Sleep for a few hours and then continue playing alllll day Friday 😎 gonna be the best weekend lol I can’t wait to hop on here late Friday and see everyone’s reactions. We’ve waited too long

Weep silently as I don't have a PS4 and I'm waiting for the PC version to (hopefully) come out later next year.

 

Then I'll probably watch GTASeriesVideos's playthrough...

Kinda crazy I dont even drink, but would get it just to put into my crystal decanter collection. Although, IDK about that. That R* connection, you know,  their problem with whiskey.

What a great thread 😀

 

Plan on getting a couple of hours sleep on the evening of the 25th so that I can stay awake well into the night, assuming the auto download thing starts at midnight. 

 

After that im also off work for a week and can’t imagaine doing much else other than RDR2.

 

Been thinking of getting a new tv recently. Really tempted to get one in time for this but can’t really justify it. Might do it though.

I agree Bourbon seems the most fitting :D maybe I will try some of the 46, I'll have to check the price. Would like to stay under $50 US for a liter. 

 

although maybe I should look for that "Redemption" posted above too :D

I don't have to worry about that, as my temp contract finishes next week. Haven't been able to save as much as I would have liked, but managed to buy the game and a few other essentials. Fingers crossed I get it extended next week, but will be taking the Friday off no questions, lol.

 

As for game day, the store I pre-ordered from has a midnight opening, so will be there for that, and plan on gaming as long as I can stay awake for that night. The guy at the shop said they will be open from 10.30pm to finalise any till work etc, and there were about 100 local pre-orders, so will get there early to feel the vibes of the place. Would love to score one of the posters too

You’ll still have to install it though. I plan to install the game offline which is faster then go online to download the first patch thing while I sleep so hopefully it’s all ready to play when I wake up.

Dont really have a "ritual", but this is a special occasion.

 

Wednesday: stay up later than usual, shouldn't be hard with the anticipation.

 

Thursday:

- get through what will undoubtedly be the longest day at work.

- Grab enough snacks and drinks for the weekend on the way home.

- Pre download rdr2

- Tell everyone including family and work that I'm going camping for the weekend and wont have service.

- take what will likely be my last shower for the weekend

- sleep for a few hours

- wake up wondering what day it is

- Then when the game drops I play until my eyes hurt, then pass out again.

 

Friday:

- Took the day off from work and the gf has work and school, perfect.

 

Saturday:

- treating the gf with some stuff to keep her out of the house most of the day since I'll be ignoring her

- only stopping for food and bathroom breaks

- possible coitus when the gf gets home, although the havnt showered thing may work in my favor here.

- more gaming.

 

Sunday:

Play all day again, hopefully still coasting off the brownie points I earned Saturday with the gf.

 

Monday:

- left this open ended with work, dont wanna burn myself out on the game. But in case I'm still feeling it, which is most likely, I said I may not be back yet.

Well I’m at work on Friday 😐. So I’ll be up as late as I can muster on Friday night. Then on Saturday... my wife has invited friends over for dinner 😥. Needless to say some words were exchanged about that. Good thing is I’m off the following Monday and Thursday.

I feel for you there dude. My wife has a habit of doing that. I've already pre warned her that the weekend of 27th & 28th is off limits. 

 

If she invites anyone round I'll just go to work and play there.

I've booked Friday and Monday off at work. I've bought the standard edition on digital. I'm going to start playing as soon as the clock strikes 12 and I'm going to stop sometime on Monday evening.

Aiming for 96hrs straight? Better make sure you’ve got supplies in!
