How much of a grind was it to get a large percentage of that through Blackjack?

Yeah, I haven’t played blackjack yet, but poker pays very meager amounts. I’m better off fencing, robbing stage coaches, and tracking down bounties.

I'm thinking about a second play-through. Just Storyline focused and leaving the random encounters until Post-Epilogue. I also want to find a donkey early and try to complete the bulk of the game on that.

Don’t think it’s really been said much but online is so much quicker than GTAO which is nice. 

Now that they’ve fixed the money/balance stuff it’s so much better too. 

Enjoyed shooting salmon with @9 to 5 and @Stevie B yesterday.

Just finished it this evening and it's so emotional at the end.

Spoiler

I shed a tear when my horse died. Not sure if I'll do the epilogue right away, not playing as Arthur doesn't feel right, the immediate time jump seems a bit jarring and I don't have any link to RDR to interest me. That said I am invested enough in the surviving characters that I want the loose ends tied up.

Blackjack isn't too much of a grind, luck pending. You can do pretty big bets and it's a lot quicker than poker. Plus I genuinely enjoyed drinking a glass of wine or two and playing blackjack. Stops me going to the real casino which I'm trying to ease up on. At the same time though this game is not helping with trying to quit chewing.

Tracked down and caught the legendary white horse. Was a bit of an effort, but she's pretty sound, so deffs worth it. Haven't played as much as I'd like recently, barely made a dent in chapter 6, so really want to crack on now.

Just finished the epilogue at last. I started out thinking I wouldn't like Arthur Morgan as much as John Marston, because for such a long time RDR1 was pretty much my gold standard for games and for a while I didn't but now, at the end? Yeah, Morgan is possibly my favourite video game protagonist ever.

 

So obviously the games both end with the main character dying and they're both tragic stories but fuckin hell, Morgans life is so bleak. From getting tuberculosis, losing his mentor to a scumbag traitor, watching his father figure and friends killed in front of him, to stuff like Mary returning his ring and breaking his heart, and the revelation about his son, he just never get a chance to be happy. It's amazing how Rockstar can go from creating such unlikable characters in GTAV to making you genuinely feel sad for Arthur. Even his bloody horse gets killed at the end.

It might be down to RDR2 being on a much bigger scale, being more refined and having generally more activities to do as Arthur but you really feel connected to him in a way I didn't with Marston, and its devastating when almost every avenue for success or happiness is ruthlessly torn away from him. Its fantastic writing that I didn't expect, and it is actually far more involving than the first game. The only downside really is that Micah has no depth as the villain other than being a huge dickhead. Everything else was so spot on.

Arthur was just too good for this world :(

So yeah. When's RDR3 out?

I have to say that the house building scene was one of my favourite scenes from any game. It was just wonderful.

One of my favorite lines in the game (happens in the last mission of chapter 6)

 

 

Really... everything Arthur says and does in chapter 6 is a masterpeice

I started the epilogue in spectacular fashion...

Spoiler

I rode out to go and have a look around the game world a few years later and immediately ran into a cougar, and naturally my horse bolted me off almost into its mouth. I went for a gun, and didn't have any because they weren't unlocked yet, so I just pressed O as much as I could and gave it a kick after shaking it off me. Then it died. I skinned it and have kept its pelt on my horse ever since as a reminder of the day I kicked a cougar to death.

I’m playing Assassins Creed after completing this and now realised all games are ruined because of how good RDR2 was.

No connection with characters and just missions that don’t mean anything and isn’t funny.

Boo

It's funny you should say that as I was playing Origins yesterday and I kept trying to interact with every NPC I saw, then I realised that despite the game-world being physically full, it felt kind of empty. Even the dialogue when travelling around sounds so studio-recorded compared to Red Dead. 

It really goes to show what an amazing job Rockstar did that a game as good as Origins feels flat in comparison.

About two or three weeks ago, within my first couple days of playing RDR2, I started the storyline where you track down a bunch of legendary gunslingers from yesteryear, and did pretty much all of those encounters right off the bat, only to discover that I was going to have to wait until an undisclosed time to continue the storyline. Turns out it's in Chapter IV, where we're based in Saint Denis! And I have to go back to Valentine to continue the story! So I fast travel there... to get a cutscene saying that the characters I'm looking to meet up with have moved on to Saint Denis.

It kind of sums up my feeling on this game as a whole. I really like it, but I like it in spite of the fact that it's often really obstinate and infuriating. I guess maybe the timing of it is in part because there's also a story mission relatively close to Valentine but good god.

Spotted an Opossum, aimed my gun at it and it flopped onto it's side like it was dead. Thought 'ha, that's a weird bug' and went to pick it up to skin it, little fucker jumped up and tried to run away. Then I remembered that Opossum's are known to play dead in an effort to hide from predators.

Rockstar thought of everything.

That’s actually the second to last challenge of the “master hunter” challenges.

Serisouly, when I started that I was like "Oh come on Rockstar, I didn't want a minigame like this!"

By the time it was over?

I leaned back, opened a beer and went "Hell yea, I built a house!"

I was hoping that it would transition into a Sims style game-within-a-game with wall and furniture placement and swimming pools. With this not being the case, I will be requesting a full refund and letter of apology from Rockstar for releasing such a half-arsed and shoddy product.
