There's more to it though ... like I reckon all kinds of stats from playtime to the other usual things there always have been in R* games.

Also it's a good thing if you want to turn off the hud completely ... you'll see the map and stuff on your tablet whenever you want ... alongside the other hud elements like Arthur's health, Dead-Eye meter, etc.

 

PS. What in god's name is that horse map-icon meant to be??? It's possibly the ugliest icon I've ever seen in a R* game ... it looks so weird and overwhelming. 😂 I don't like it at all and was sure they'd change it by now but oh well, there must be good reasons for it I reckon.

This app is nothing special. What's the point of turning off HUD and playing with a map on your tablet? 

The icon it's just horse head with the saddle.

It's still locked ... I found this summary on opencritic.com and apparently another early review score has been leaked in here few pages back (score 5/5).

So two perfect scores already and many many more to follow!

This will dethrone GTA IV's 98 metascore and will reach 99 ... I'm totally honest!

The review is locked now. That summary wasn't locked this morning but they removed it. It is the real quote. I read it on their website.

Slightly off topic but hypothetically speaking do you think a Bully 2 announcement would get the same level of hype on the forums as Red Dead Redemption 2?

We would definitely try :yee: 

Oh, I know one person here who would definitely fuel the hype if necessary ... 😂

Waiting highlights

JULY 2016: "GUYS ROCKSTAR WAS GOING TO ANNOUNCE RDR2 AT E3 BUT THEY CANCELED IT BECAUSE OF THE ORLANDO SHOOTING AND THE TRAILER HAD A GUY SHOOTING UP A SALOON"
OCTOBER 2016: go crazy over a red rockstar logo

OCTOBER 2016: go crazy over RDR2 being announced and watching the trailer

MAY 2017: go crazy over the game being delayed. then go crazy over the screenshots that were released

SEPTEMBER 2017: go crazy over the second trailer

FEBRUARY 2018: go crazy over the second delay

MAY 2018: go crazy over the third trailer

 

And it's been waiting since.

That's the material of a nightmare right there!

My pre-orders' status is now: "in preparation for shipping" ... means it'll be delivered today and I'll receive it in about 24-26 hours from now! That's what I was assured after double-checking a few times over the last couple days.  :)

No mini-map for me but I'll keep the rest of the hud however ... at least for the first couple of hours!

Are those cinematic bars in cutscenes part of the HUD? Hopefully bars and background for subtittles are optional

I read Jason Schreier's latest piece yesterday night ... and there's this very part mentioned:

 

Quote

In the final year of development on Red Dead Redemption 2, the upcoming Western game, the top directors decided to add black bars to the top and bottom of every non-interactive cutscene in hopes of making those scenes feel more cinematic, like an old-school cowboy film. Everyone agreed it was the right creative move, but there was a catch: It would add weeks of work to many people’s schedules.

 

“You can’t just slap black bars on the cinematics we’ve already shot,” said one person who worked on the game. “You have to reframe the camera so that the cinematics flow in a particular way, and you’re emphasizing what you weren’t emphasizing initially with that shot.”

 

With no hope of delaying the game any further—Red Dead Redemption 2 had already been bumped internally before it was announced, then publicly delayed twice—there was no way for the developers at Rockstar Games to add more time to their schedule. Instead, they would have to crunch, putting in extra nights and weekends in order to redo these scenes and deal with the rest of the massive workload that was ahead of them. Would the black bars prove to be worth it?

I think I'm gonna turn everything off.

 

Go full wild man.

 

Honorable play through, as always. 

 

I wasn't as bullish on Bully as some but it was limited by being a PS2 game. I could see them really improve everything on current/next gen system.

I fear that if I turn off the hud completely that I'll mess up buttons and ultimately shoot a NPC I was just interacting with and therefore end a possible side-story???

I'll turn off the mini-map but I'll keep the rest on display ... maybe I turn that off as well a few hours into the game, familiarized with the games' control scheme.

So what's the answer? 

The answer is they added the black bars in late 2017 to give the cutscenes a more cinematic look ... they are mandatory and cannot be turned off.

I think as with every R* game you'll be able to disable/enable the subtitles at will.

Have you seen any leaked footage? There is a black backround for subtitles.

No, I kept away from all leaked footage ... so that's new to me, but I guess you can't change that as well?

We'll have to wait and see what options R* gives us regarding this.

I think, since they basically made everything without black bars on top and bottom of the screen at first, there's a slight chance we can turn off the black bars?

Probably not but tbh I don't care at all ... R* decided it's better and I fully trust them with this one!

We have to ask leakers if it's optional.

Where were you?

My computer


What were you doing?

Trying to contain the hype
 

How did you find out the news?

Rockstar Twitter.
 

What was your first reaction?
"This sh*t is getting delayed... more than once"

 

"This gives me McCabe and Mrs Miller meets Heavens Gate vibes"

 

Were you a member of these forums?

Yes.

 

Fun-fact:

I was on GTAG, Gouranga, and whatever Gamespy's old GTA site was called. GTA Planet? I can't remember when I signed up here but I was big on GTA-Vice and GTA-SanAn. Great sites.

 

Not as crazy as some of people today but I used to collect all the magazines for a new screen or hint of info. Total tweaker. 

 

I remember old ass factoids like parachutes originally being planned for Vice City and the cut mission escaping a building which ended up in VCS.

 

When did you discover RDR?

Despite my love for Rockstar, I was busy moving and starting a new job so I didn't play RDR until a year or so after release. I felt like I stumbled upon a treasure trove.

 

How Do I Feel About RDR?

I think it's Rockstar's best narrative save GTA IV. Incredible stuff. I am oddly calm about RDR2. I'm hoping to be blown away.

In my case I'll be playing without any HUD and my only guide will be that map that comes with the special edition. I just want to feel like I'm exploring that beautiful world personally.

 

The hype is definitely driving me crazy

I planned to do so as well but ultimately changed my opinion because I feel like it won't work. 🤣

This is the main reason I wanted the physical edition... :O but I had to spend some aging PS cash.. Maybe I will order the Xbox version right away too, so I can play it on the X and have the map :D 

 

I sort of want to wait to see if I could get the Ultimate on the X on Black Friday, maybe discounted 20 bucks(?) though.
