    Ah ofcourse, cover and identify stuff. Well that settles it, I can't imagine them putting it anywhere else on the controller. It really deserves its own dedicated button.
    Yeah I get how it works but its not the most intuitive system. Its really best to have your 'Aim Weapon' be the same button in all situations.

    I feel that the hype killed some of the enjoyment for me. Yes, you can do more things than most open worlds and its more realistic but there are far more things you now expect to be able to do which you cant do! Why cant I enter some buildings especially if a cutscene had someone enter it? Why cant I kick the fish that jumped out of the pond back instead of clumsily picking it up? Why is there just one throw animation and I cant toss people into windows, etc? Why is every interaction merely defuse or antagonize? Why is the bounty system so broken and lawmen appears out of thin air? Why when I smash running into a store and break a window the shopkeeper doesnt care? Why are the seasonal changes only limited to particular areas? I can go on and on.

    Plus, the rain looks worse than in Horizon or Driveclub which is paradoxical for a game filled with so much detail elsewhere. Oh and the npcs in the theatres.. look so so bad.

    So...I lost the legendary fox pelt. Can I go back and hunt it again?
     
  5. It will show up in the trappers inventory, you just cant sell it

    You haven't lost it, it goes to the trapper, and no, legendaries are one shot only.

    The game has so many closed doors, lots of huts in the middle of nowhere that seem abandoned and you can't even break in. Feels really restrictive in a game this detailed.
     
  8. Ha, perfect! I do the same. Nothing like lassoing a fleeing witness then dragging them off to a quiet spot to discuss the error of their ways.

    Yeah, Abigail and Jack will magically appear when that mission is available for you to play, but not any other time.

    I stopped to look at a lynching victim just a little northwest of Saint Denis, and got ambushed by three guys. They didn't look too dangerous, but one of them ran up and stabbed me for a OHK. Same people, or was that something different?

    I don't remember where it was... they sounded and looked like hill billy stereotypes, and they'd dug a pit to trap their victims. Seemed to be a random encounter.

    Especially with the much discussed 100-hour crunches, huge budget and 8-year development time. Its like all of it went on the lighting.

    I wouldn't take it that far, there is a LOT in this game that shows they put a great deal of effort in.

    It's actually because of the huge amount of detail and interactions that things like this stand out. Game is still incredibly impressive, imo.

    If you hogtie a person and throw it alive into lake / river, Arthur say "At least I will remember where you are"

    Also, during horse chases, try to shoot the horse in the head with shotgun... it will fall and most likely take the rider on the other side.

    It absolutely is revolutionary, if only in terms of the sheer production value of everything. And we haven't even seen the online version in action.

    So I'm in chapter 3 and I have a comic book for jack, but him and Abigail seem to have vanished into the ether.

    Also the widow lady who changed her clothes mid mission who I made a drawing of in the journal seems to be completely gone too.

    I have an X855D but I don't mess much with settings, I did it once when I bought the TV and pretty much left it (tweaked it a couple of times). I play with HDR on with 200. The recommended 100 looks kinda dark to me and 300 is too much.

    imho not 8 years, 100 hour crunches worth of content. Good length story but everything else is cut and paste.

    It's not about any one thing. It's about the whole. If you sit there, and look at Watch Dogs 2, and compare and contrast with RDR2, and think "well, these games are basically the same!", then I don't know what to tell you.

    But if I had to name one thing, it'd be the persistence of the world. Not a single game out there does it anywhere close to RDR2.

    Oh, I'm sorry. I seem to have gone and wasted my time on this conversation.
     
  37. Check poster Lewis' guide to control options for tweaks that feel like a huge difference.

    I've been playing in first person mode most of the time and movement speed is much improved and I prefer the gunplay as well. Make sure to follow his 'guide' to control options first though, seriously, it majorly improves the handling in my opinion.

    Biggest thing you'll want is change controls to "STANDARD FPS" which maps running to a click of L3 instead of that atrocity that is the X button.

    How exactly? Nicer lighting? Two samey interactions with npcs? Skinning and hunting for decaying pelts? Repeating stranger missions? Riding without fast travel? Insta popping lawmen?

    The game is enjoyable no doubt but I dont think it took any leaps above and beyond whats out there. It just added extra long animations, removed useful form of fast travel (so we can all indulge in the detail porn) and made horse falls and hits extra painful.
     
  40. I don't want to know the answer but I'm still in Chapter 2 and it's killing me that I don't have the lockpick, or whatever it is, you need to open the back of that bank coach whose driver I rescued near the river. I want to open this fucking thing already.

    Someone was asking before, but you can see the camp's wealth in your journal, I just discovered. Separate to the camp funds i.e. the cut you earn from jobs etc.

    Also just to repeat - can people be more sensitive with spoilers. Even saying what a certain character does in later chapters is a massive spoiler unless it is a character like Abigail who was in the previous game of course lol we know she makes it.

    Its not as blatantly cut and paste as say AC Odyssey but I already saw repeating stranger missions all around me, the stagecoach, train and store robberies and hunts are all the same, and I dont think dinosaur bones, treasure maps and cigarette card collections are worthy of any mention

    Most realized open populated world ever.

    Most realised atmosphere of a slice of time in a video game.

    Best horse testicles in a video game, by far.

    ...there's 3 for you.

    I've only encountered 2-3 repeating things in my 50 hours so far, compare it with any other open world....then come back to me with a more non-repetitive 50 hours anywhere else in open world gaming (if you can, kudos though, happy to be proved wrong).

    This is factually wrong. This game hase side quest storylines that span over multiple side quests. They might not be on same level as The Witcher 3 side quest storylines, but they're far from cut and paste.
