I'm really enjoying my 2nd playthrough as much as my 1st tbh. Still a ton of things I haven't seen and playing missions differently when given the choice has spiced it up, along with not caring about honour as well.

 

Though, I say "playthrough" but I must be at 30-40+ hours played and I've not took Uncle and the girls to Valentine yet lol

I'm right before visiting Mr Downes. Think I'll stop here and do what I want before continuing.

 

I want to unlock manual painting in dead eye I'm not sure what mission that is.

This right here is my only issue. Auto paint is really annoying, especially when hunting.

Tried to put off Mr Downes in my 2nd playthrough for as long as possible but the game literally forces you to go and see him; I read Mary's letter and I get locked into a cutscene with Strauss, and locked into the mission. Tried to reload the save, and it autosaved right as the mission starts, so reloading loads me into the mission.

 

Not that I'm complaining but I wanted to put that off for as long as possible for... reasons.

 

Just had an event/mission where Javier randomly appeared in the wilderness to tell me Bill had been captured.

Was that a mission? An event? Can it be missed? I didn't notice it the first playthrough.

So even as a slow coach player, who's taking forever on his first playthrough and has just finished Chapter 4......

 

.....it's becoming impossible (knowing the game's big spoiler) not to put these pieces together. The game does seem very keen on accentuating the importance of Thomas Downes and his family. And Arthur has been coughing a lot lately.......

I believe it's the final part of 'Pouring Forth Oil'.

 

It was for me, anyways.

Could you actually wash yourself in a barrel at the camps or was that cutscene only?

It's weird that there's no option to look at stats like total playtime, total kills, etc.

I thought that was very cool with all of Rockstar's games ... odd that it's not a thing for RDR.

I find it odd too. There's still some in game stat tracking, but it's very bare bones. The only way to know how long you've played is on the XB1.

 

Would think it would tracked on Social Club, but not even there.

I love how uncompromising this game feels. V was clearly a result of R giving in to outside forces and it seems with this game they just did it their way. They tried to please themselves and nobody else and that is when the best stuff tends to come out. Not too many people in any genre have the balls to do that today.

It's no coincidence that pretty much all the best developers past and present say their method of creating games is to create games they them selves want to play

This is why I can forgive the hiccups here and there in this game. You can see the love and passion they put into the overall picture.

I can't believe Sean is the first to be saved only then to be the first to go...? I'm not sure this story is turning out to be all that I think it is.

I've finished the story and all that you are expecting from the story, stop it and clear your mind, and don't expect anything otherwise you may be disappointed.

That's why R* is my favorite, they dont give a f*ck about public opinion, they just do what they want.

That isn't always true. They clearly did care when it came to making GTA V.

My thoughts after I've just finished the game:

 

Spoiler

B E A U T I F U L.

 

I wasn't a fan of RDR, I enjoyed it just a bit but I didn't find it that masterpiece that a lot of people believe it is, so I wasn't even into this when it was about to be released.

 

Then I watched the first gameplay trailer, and at day1, just when I was about to come back home, I thought I could just shut up and buy it.

 

Best choice of the year to me.

 

i've never seen such an alive and living world in a videogame, everything is just so beautiful. Sure, the game itself has its flaws, but overall it works really well imho.

 

About the story itself is sometimes really hard to digest. Arthur's desease really changed the way I played the game, I started careing only about the honor and doing the right thing everytime. No more hunting, no more bounty hunting, no more anything, just played the main quests and helped strangers.

 

Arthur is just my favourite R* character. His constant attitude on being hard on himself, his will on believe in mankind even after everything he's done and saw, after everything you hear from his past (his wife and child, Isaac), those are only a few reasons I love him.

 

Dutch's downward spiral is also gut-wrenching. He's the leader, he's the one everyone rely on, he has to be strong even when the going gets rough, and I think the straw that broke the camel's back is Hosea's death. that's when Dutch REALLY goes insane and finally reveals himself for who he really is.

 

The ending is one of the saddest I've ever seen in a videogame. Everything gets f*cked up, and even if the idea that Morgan does everything he can to save John and his future is romanticism at it's best, you know what will happen in the future and it just crushes your soul. Micah is a TRUE s.o.b. and he fits his role perfectly.

 

Too bad the epilogue is FAR too long, it deflects the attention to Arthur's life and legacy.

 

In a certain way, I like to think that RDR is the sequel to RDR2, rather than the opposite.

Well, let's not forget that in between GTA IV and GTA V, even after the GTA IV """backlash""", they released Red Dead Redemption and L.A. Noire, 2 games with a very serious and realistic tone and gameplay, similar to GTA IV. If they really had listened to the backlash, they wouldn't have released both games, would they? And even though, GTA V sold 4x more than GTA IV, they still released another game similar to GTA IV, so my point still stands.

Ffffffffffffffffffffff*ck the swamp.

 

Saw some girl crying in the distance so I went to help, she slashes me leaving me near-dead and I manage to kill her before a buncha night folk came from behind and put stabbed me in the deck. Not ten minutes later some thing ran by me sounding like the devil him self, made my horse sh*t its self and buck me off then a more night folk came charging at me with knives and bows, managed to kill them just about.

 

I'm outie of this place man.

Did you get the guy in the swamp who tells you that he has food in his house, that you must be lonely and to come in and eat? Yeah not falling for that one. I shot at him and he locked himself inside his house and told me I am a sick man.

It's the little moments, like pushing those wooden saloon doors open, hearing them creak, then you stand there and pan the room as everyone inside stops to turn and look at you. It's a cliche right out of every western movie you can think of and yet it never looked so good!

with everyone praising RDO's story mode it seems like that a new thing to online games...RDR2 was revolutionary when it launch a month ago, and RDO is also revolutionary and it in beta for God knows...Long Live Rockstar Games!

So I haven't been playing much because I don't want to complete the story because then the game will end lol. I'm on Chapter 6 and I can feel the ending coming soon it's already bad that I've spoiled some of the ending for myself.

 

I know there's more to do but when I play I just do the story.
