Red Dead Redemption 2

I had to search online to find out how to save.

I ended up doing a mini rampage, then having to pay off the 300 bounty. Still playing that game. Not a big deal really. I was going to play as an asshole anyway.

You definitely get a ton of bang for your buck in terms of gameplay hours, but it’s looking to be a game that cares a lot more about the worldbuilding and immersion than the actual game itself. Still good, but a potential slog.

Also, no fast travel is a hilariously bad decision in such a gargantuan map. Same issue I had with GTA V; so many missions just end up as “drive/ride to this location over the course of 20 real-time minutes” which is not fun.


#43

I agree. The long horse rides are getting tiresome, not to mention, my thumb, jesus.

You can upgrade your camp to use fast travel, but only from that location (WTF)!


#44

There’s fast travel. You have to find a coach and pay a small fee and it’ll take you to any previously discovered location.

I enjoy the fact i can’t fast travel.

The world created is so beautiful that it simply needs to be appreciated in every way.

You see a plume of smoke… off you venture to investigate. Next thing you know you’ve plugged some cunt full of lead and are off on a wild goose chase trying to catch the ‘witness’ to your dastardly crime…

It’s wee things like this that warm my gaming heart.

I found that fast travel forces you into this ‘must complete quickly’ mentality where you’re just juggernauting your way through the game.

It’s good to have a game where you can just relax and experience it in all it’s true glory

I do enjoy the rides through the country. Definitely a good opportunity to explore and get into trouble.

But being able to fast travel would be nice…

Hey @usmccds423 where can you find a coach? or is it just anywhere?


#47

I’ve just made it to Victory (I think that’s what the first town is called?) and saw one there. I think you can see them on your map too. If I remember correctly it was on the south end of town.


#48

Gonna check today. I think its called Valentine.


#49

4K TV arrived today

Holy fuck

The graphics are insane. Life like.

The visuals on a normal tv was like playing it underwater. Even the wee map is completely different. Loving this game. It’s overwhelming at times


#50

Once you start playing, it starts to make sense what needs to be done and isn’t so overwhelming.

4k is a must. Bro go on some rampages in first person. you wont be disappointed.


#51

You can also fast travel through the train stations


#52

I figured that out. There is also a way to “fast travel” using the cinematic mode. Its more like an autopilot than an actual fast travel though.


#53

Never found that stagecoach though…


#54

Just outside of Whiterun.
Wait… damnit.


#55

What’s your gaming rig like? I can understand processor ghz, ram, SSD’s and stuff. But graphics cards have this numbering system that’s Greek to me.


#56

I think they’re the train stations in some towns and actual coaches in others.


#57

AHH. cool. thanks


#58

lol … the only game I’ve played is Civ VI … just on my lap top. I’m not really sure what a gaming rig is


#59

What were the 30s like, oldman?
