So I’ve went in blind ignoring all the reviews and only knowing that it’s a prequel to the original.

I fucking marked when I had to

Yeah I really like it so far. It's not an action game, definitely more role playing buts it's fun. Some clunky controls and not really explaining how to provide for the camp are my only real complaint thus far.

Dumb question- how I do I feed my horse tonics for when it's tired? I had a random dude challenge me to a race last night and my horse gassed out right before the finish line, had a few stamina tonics in my satchel and for the life of me couldn't figure out how to administer them.

I took down the legendary ram. Good thing the hide is automatically legendary because it was not a clean kill.

That said, the screaming of the dying, wounded animals is very realistic and depresses my wife.

I’m still early in. But the drinking mission with Lenny was a delight.

How do you find you're getting penalized? I haven't noticed any negative effects even though I know it says in the game if you're underweight it affects your health but improves stamina.

it says under the "player" menu if you go to the underweight tab

FYI there is apparently a huge bug (that I have) that removes some of the key gang members from the camp except for when they are in story missions

I also think the weight system is bugged also. From what I've been reading it's impossible to get overweight and it's difficult not to be underweight the majority of the game

I dunno, I've been underweight for a minute and haven't noticed a significant drain on my health.

I’m still average weight or whatever they call it.

All I really ever do is grab a bowl of stew every time I happen to hit my camp.

Caved and bought a copy. It had one of the preorder bonuses attached, so there's that.

Gorgeous game. I'm stoked that Rockstar fixed the third person camera from GTAV, it feels much more solid and less floaty which means third person combat isn't a pain in the ass. I'm eagerly awaiting the online mode.

Finally finished the main storyline. All in all a pretty incredible achievement, I'm not sure if it'll have the replay level of GTA for me but the writing and acting in this were probably the best I've ever seen in a video game.

Spoiler: show
 The emotional aspect of the game is what sets it apart. The feelings I had when Sean, Hosea and Lenny got killed were all ones of genuine sadness and sorrow. I teared up big time when Arthur said goodbye to his horse and when he's diagnosed with TB. I genuinely wanted Micah dead and felt legitimate frustration with Dutch. I was incredibly happy when John proposes to Abby with the ring that Mary gave to Arthur. I can't recall ever feeling this invested in the characters of a game and what their outcomes would be.

And Sadie Adler is the realest chick ever.

I bawled when Arthur is riding back to camp to confront Micah and the various good things people said about him play over the music. Jesus Christ that was hard.

Two of my friends have. They've both said it's clearly designed for having multiple friends on at once, and it looks like R* mashed the original RDO with what GTAO is to varying degrees of success.

Just beat this. The Epilogue is a chore but a bit of a necessity to tie off loose ends and set up RDR1, but hot damn was it incredible. I laughed, I cried, and the music for the bigger action scenes was so on point that I couldn't help but feel wholly invested.

9.5/10, with only the grind of the Epilogue and Chapter 5 standing out as being lame.

I’m only starting chapter 4. I’m stretching this fucker out. I feel like I can guess how it’s going to end though.

Loving the game. After it opens up a little it’s so enjoyable.

I’ve just arrived at Saint Denis and did a few missions. I’m already starting to work out what’s gonna happen.

I'm still on chapter 3 because I'm still just running around hunting and exploring.  I bought an Arabian so getting around is a lot faster.  I'm not hugely into the story yet but I think some pretty serious stuff is going down soon since I just went to the party in Saint Denis.

I noticed once the epilogue opens up that riding around in the south I came across a broken oil rig with a wooden sign that read "Plainview". Somebody at Rockstar is a There Will Be Blood fan!

Just finished Chapter 6. One of the strongest finishes to a game I've ever played. Arthur Morgan has rocketed to the top of best protagonists in gaming history.

Spoiler: show
Yes, fuck Micah.  I couldn't remember if he shows up in the original so I was waiting to put a bullet in his brain, but I guess that's for Marston to do.

Now it seems like a whole new game has started and I honestly am fine with it.  I want to see how they set up where John is at the start of the original.

Without spoilers I just got off the island recently. Glad that didn’t linger too long. While I’m loving the game. I feel like I’m ok with it coming to an end.

I guess I can see how people say the Epilogue can be kind of a slog but I'm really enjoying it.  Sadie becoming a badass bounty hunter is great and I love going out on missions with her.  I don't remember if she is in the original either, so I'm kind of dreading her being killed by Micah or something.  Also, the song that plays during the house building scene is fucking delightful.


This game is really making me want to start up the original again as soon as I finish it.

The slog is really just the build to Sadie's return, following John working as a ranch hand and building the house and whatnot. It's not too bad, really, but to follow Arthur's death with that is a tonal shift that feels worse than it is.

You know it’s ironic as hell that the story was
Spoiler: show
dutch needing one big score so they could all live in happiness. When I ended the main Arthur story with about 5k. That was through hunting, fishing etc so if they had all actually worked for it they could have went legit.
