I will probably stock up on plenty of snacks. My local Game store is a few blocks away so I'll maybe watch these to get me in the mood, then collect my copy at midnight.

I don't have a game "ritual" per se, as this is the first time I've ever pre-ordered a game with the intent of playing on the first day.

 

But, since y'all asked: I'll get the game probably lateer Thursday night at GameStop, and Friday I "work from home" which means day drinking and RDR2. All. Day. Long. :)

 

My house flooded this past Monday (water heater, long story) and the contractors start right away, but not Friday. I want MY space, my time, my immersion into this which I've waited for for so long.

 

It'll be a day of a celebratory bourbon, and then many hazy DIPAs. :)

I'm preparing myself mentally a week prior release, I'm going to watch a different western movie each day.

Thursday comes gonna sleep through the day, wake up at 9pm order pizza, get me some dark lagers, invite my best friend who is a game programmer and play all night until morning.

I just hope I don't get a heart attack when the game starts to load, seriously RDR 1 is my favorite game of all time and boy am I excited. 🤠

Well i changed my mind since last time.

 

I'm going to stock up on water to stay HYDRATED and also have a bag of nachos or something with me. 

 

I've downloaded it, now just need to wait for release at 12am and I'll be playing it all day long.

Finish work early (around 1pm), and hopefully by the time I get home the game has been delivered. In which case, as soon as I get home (or as soon as the game arrives) I will unbox the game and start the install process. In the meantime I'll probably grab something to eat, watch all the trailers through again and maybe listen to some music while I wait for the game to install. Once it's installed I'll be playing all evening and all through the night probably lol. I booked Monday off work also, so I've got an extra long weekend to enjoy the game. Back at work for 2 days after that, then I'm off from 1st Nov - 14th Nov :)

From about 10pm (UK Time) Thursday I think I'll spend a few hours watching a few recaps/cutscene only bits from the first game all to get ready for midnight.  Then I'm hoping to jump in for about an hour or so, watch the Dolphins TNF game, get some shut eye.  Wake up about 10am Friday morning and play for as long as I want the rest of the day.

Love reading all these posts. Really gets me in the mood for release day!

 

I'll be making an order with all kinds of snacks. Tortillachips, beef jerky, bacon. All the good stuff that seperates the men from the boys. 🙂

What's good gaming food for you guys? Stuff like beef jerky is awesome, but anything that's greasy is hard for me to do while gaming, because I hate getting my controller all slimy and gross. I usually go for things like pretzel sticks, peanut butter m&m's, etc.

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.

Should be a good time? Nothing beats daytime sex! You should probably check that she doesn't get her period that day or it could mean Red Dead Relations...

Or it could mean she would be cool with it anyway on such an occasion, you know staying in the theme of things. 😂

I'm gonna get up. Take a quick shower and brush my teeth, nevermind shaving. Drive to work, and take some f*cking scalps during the day, drive back home. 

 

Order the most unhealthy fastfood there is and have it delivered at my home. Eat it while watching the RDR2 opening credits. Then continue to hermit inside my house the entire week that I have taken off from work just playing the game.

Used some vacation days to create a 4 day launch weekend, I'll see if the place I preordered is doing a midnight launch, go if I feel like it or else just get a good night's sleep, pick the game up when they open Friday morning, stock up on snacks on the way home and hunker down for a good long while of gaming.

The plan is to head to work in five minutes, then come home, watch the Good The Bad and The Ugly, go to sleep, wake up, drink black coffee, go to gamestop, and either pick my game up in the morning or wait there until 9pm

Unplug the ethernet cable and hope to Dan Houser's shiny bald dome that I don't get spoiled until the PC release.

I will try not to think about it until I look at the clock and realize it’s 9pm and time to play.

Pick up the game tomorrow morning and be annoyed at work that I won't be able to play until late afternoon. Pick up some bourbon whiskey on the way back from work, install the game pacing the room wanting it to go faster and once it's installed play until the early hours whilst drinking.

Download complete, but I have to work all day tomorrow so I'll be playing around 6pm.. Thought about playing and drinking but I don't want to get drunk on the first day.

Just went up to game stop to pre order/guarantee my copy. Ritual though? Nothing out of the ordinary. Will try to get there a half hour to 45 minutes early, come home to my freshly cleaned room and load the game. Probably play Revolver while I wait and smoke the Ice Cream Cake and Fire OG I stocked up on for my birthday (tomorrow), as well as finally dip into my own harvest of bud I grew this year for the first time ever. Tahoe OG, outdoor in MI, just finished curing the first plant and cannot believe how well she turned out! 

 

The teenage stoner in me hopes they brought the ability to smoke in game over from V, and an even higher hope would be to be able to grow/sell cannabis or even hemp as one of the tradable goods in game. It was still a popular industrial staple back then, and the sativa and indica varieties were sold in mail order catalogs in tincture form just like heroin back then. Common uses were for teething babies (lol, sheeeit), depressed housewives, and general pain reliever.

Mine is really damn special, first I go to sleep at 8 pm, then I wake up at 4 am. I brush my teeth, do my stuff, dress up, then I take the taxi to a place called ''Work''. I stay there for a few hours to gain some proper currency to eventually afford so many microtransactions I become the ultimate god of the virtual west, then I go back home and play.
