My girlfriend is a big planner, so she wants to do a Western themed day. Burgers with BBQ sauce, Western movies, etc., leading up to the release event at our local GameStop that night. Should be a good time. We both took the day off, even though she isn't going to be playing the game.

Excuse me but your girlfriend is epic

Staring longingly out of my window waiting for the Amazon Guy to deliver the game. As time passes I will get more and more angry as social media starts blowing up with hype and yet there's still no sign of my game. I'll consider buying it again using amazon prime now and having it delivered within an hour. More staring out of the window. I'll throw Twitch on the TV but then freak out because as much as I want to feed my anger/hype loop, I don't want to see spoilers because I SHOULD BE PLAYING THE GAME OH MY GOD WHERE IS THIS F*****G DRIVER. Hours will pass. Amazon updates telling me the driver is 6 stops away even though he's been six stops away for 2 hours. More staring, more pacing.

 

Until finally. It will arrive.

 

Quickly followed by my wife and daughter who are back from work/school asking how my day off work has been. I won't get to play for another 4 hrs.

Getting hyped into realms where i have to question my own sanity.

Going to wake up on 24th midnight to see if the download starts.

Want to go out with friends but cant because i have to monitor the download.

Getting no sleep from 24th to 25th because still monitoring the download.

Getting small heartattacks and strokes everytime the download-speed changes.

Trying to get some sleep so i am fit midnight of 26th - cant too hyped.

Use the time to give my social life a proper burial.

Fall asleep.

Wake up 26th in the morning to see the download got interrupted.

Kill myself.

Remember, soups and stews were some of the most popular dishes in the Old West. I'd encourage stocking up, so you and Arthur can be eating the same food at the same time.

For any game:

 

Launch day:

 

Watch reviews from people who are not paid to review it other than whatever they make for producing content in general.

 

Watch people's reactions on forums.

 

Wait a few weeks to see if it's just haters.

 

Make decision to buy or not from heavily informed perspective.

 

I like spoilers, so it's always a good time.

Go to school and not be able to focus all day, go home and jerk off, call all my friends to tell them that the game comes out that night even though they already know that, pull up to gamestop at 8:00 all fresh like, wait an hour riddled with anxiety worrying i wont get my hands on red dead 2, grab the game, get in line, store closes as soon as my turns up, go home and cry, take a big sh*t, go to sleep and repeat on the 26th.

I'ma go to my local Gamestop's midnight launch Thursday night and pick up my Collector's Box and play until I fall asleep. I took Friday off, and told the GF not to bother me for the rest of the weekend. She was none too pleased, but whatevs. I had taken the following week off as well, but I'm going to rescind my request and hold off until RDR2O goes online.

Booked a week off the following week but still have to go in on the Friday. Likely going to give midnight a miss because I won't go to sleep Thursday night.

 

Considering buying some dope and new headphones. Haven't smoked one in a long time, but I feel like I should treat myself with both those things and fall into it properly.

 

I f*cking love Rockstar releases so much.

Smart person. Use that week to stay in the progression game!

I'm amazed at how much people truly put into hyping themselves for the game. Have fun, dude!

Stocked up on cowboy food, Picked up jerky, trail mix, Ranch Style beans, and Hard Cheese. I couldn't find anything at the grocery store that resembled the sh*tty biscuits they used to eat because those were basically just flour, water, and salt.

I’m planning on leaving work at dinner time on launch day, picking up the game and getting home ASAP! I’m going to get a few alcoholic beverages- not a whisky fan so will be some kind of ale or beer (trying to find one that is western themed if anyone has any suggestions) will also be aiming for western themed snacks- beef jerky or trail mix- maybe even a Texas bbq pizza!

This series is so much more than a game for me- it was an escape for me first time round at a difficult point in my life- I could’ve been having a real crappy day and I’d visit areas with some of my favourite vistas in the game and the sunset or sunrise would fill me with positivity at the beauty of the locations- my favourites were the armadillo saloon top balcony at sunrise and South Rio bravo/ New Austin looking across to Mexico at sunset- simply beautiful!

I will probably go outside with a lasso and try to lasso everyone on sight, then get arrested, explain it was just a ritual, finish my 2 year sentence in prison and finally play the game, a little late... now that I think of it I'll rather just wake up and play the game with no ritual.

On release day my ritual will be sitting in my front yard waiting on the delivery truck to arrive, it usually comes pretty early in the morning. Then I'll head inside and turn on my tv and ps4, and turn off my phone.. Got plenty of food and drinks ready so I should be good there, also got 3 days reserved with nothing else to do just to play the game ( :
