Red Dead Redemption Part Deux


Recommended Posts

I would be surprised if any potential Redemption 3 goes back in time with the same characters.

Spoiler

The Dutch's Gang story is complete now. It wouldn't particularly be interesting, narratively, to chart the rise of the gang. The way they fell apart, that was always very intriguing and many potential seeds for it were planted in the first Redemption. John's role in it all, all of that. The only real question mark left is what happened on the Blackwater ferry job, and that's not something which merits a whole game.

To me, if there is another Rockstar Old West game it would make sense to set it in the height of the era, same universe sure but the story of Dutch's Gang, of him and Arthur and John and all of those characters is complete. Otherwise, you could always go back to Jack Marston post-WW1 but that wouldn't be an Old West game due to the time period.

Felt cute. Might delete later.

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

Well, not back in time, but

I feel there's a ton of potential in the continuing adventures of Sadie Adler, happening during the first game or in between 2 and 1 without adding to the narratives.

The Sadie route seems more DLC that full game. She’s a bounty hunter so it’ll be a series of bounties maybe including Charles and possibly John on occasion. Can’t really see where her story can go beyond that. 
They could go back another 50 odd years And run with a Gold Rush theme gradually leading to the western expansion via train etc. 

you could even have Uncle in it before he became Uncle! I picture him being a young lad. Late teens. Travelling with his family west as part of a caravan. You’ll play as his best friend obviously who then goes on to father One of the characters from Dutch’s gang, hence how he got the name Uncle.

I just want more uncle.

Yeah I thought Sadie was cool and would definitely make a good DLC there something.

But I think a full game set beyond RDR1 can’t really call itself a western any longer. Not that I’d be opposed, but it’s a very different conceit.

I’d like something in Mexico.That was my favourite part of the first game.

So i beat it.

A few months ago. Really a very enjoyable experience all around. I still play it regularly just being a complete fucking dick to people. 

Also just now went to Armadillo and the other town..forget the name. It all just dawned on me this is the area from RDR. Really cool. But that has given me more to do in game well after finishing every aspect of the main story. Also realized the little square boxes on the map are usually little homes with good loot. 

I still like to visit camps with rival gangs and just fucking massacre them. 

So...I missed out on a lot of the chat when it came out, any thoughts on favorite weapons? Bolt action rifle, Evans Repeater, Auto shotgun, Schofield Revolver, bow and arrow for me. Also love anything that can be thrown.

My loadout for online is usually Bolt Action and varmint/Semi auto shotgun/bow/Lancaster rifle depending on the situation at hand. I’ll always use varmint on NPCs because why waste good annoying? I tend to lean towards dual LeMats revolvers but can switch to Schofields. Everything else is in the lockbox at camp. I also have the machete and Rope at the ready.

I’ve actually gone back to it lately to complete all the collectibles and so on. (Though, annoyingly, there are a few things you can’t do after a certain point in the game. Also, a couple of things you SHOULD be able to do are glitched. Anyhow.)

I’ve since gotten all the dinosaur bones, rock carvings, and exotics. I’ve also been checking out every little spot on the map, like VP said. I had missed out on some pretty cool secrets before. I’ve found several cool special weapons doing all this, like the double-sided hatchet or whatever it’s called. Just stuck in a stump in the middle of nowhere.

I was also surprised that some stranger missions have kept popping up since. Some cool stuff in those.

Red Dead Redemption is ten years old today. I won a copy in a competition at launch and have played it through three times since. I have no hesitation in calling it Rockstar's best storytelling effort at the time, eclipsed only by its sequel.

Oh my goodness me, so it is. I remember the summer it came out so well. I had just finished my second year at university and was back at my parents' house with nothing to do and no money. I played this game endlessly on my brother's PS3. Even got me into westerns too, which I'd never watched or wanted to watch before,

Finished the game yesterday. What a fun ride. I really enjoyed it and thought the characters were all really well thought out and complex.

Going to take a break for a while but will eventually go back and try and finish all the side missions and collectibles.

I ended up starting a second playthrough since I missed stuff the first time. I want to do the gun fighter stuff that I never did. 

I have been hearing rumors of a remake of the original RDR using the RDR2 engine/mechanics/graphics which would be dope.

Are you going to play Arthur any differently than you did the first time round? This has been my big question ahead of hopefully embarking on a second playthrough when I get my PS4 back.

I was going to, I was a saint on my first playthrough. I planned on being a real bastard this time....but I can't help being nice. So...no I'm not. Not too late to start robbing and killing though.

This is my thing - I wanna do another playthrough but I inevitably never go full bastard. But I want to do all the robbing side missions, etc - and with my post game on my other one, I just don't feel right doing them as John.

I originally had a psychopath run where Arthur was a psychopath who believed himself to be the son of Thor, but after that moment in the story he had a moment of clarity and reformed.

If I replay the game, Arthur is going to be a full blown villain, but one who is chillingly sane (and chillingly sincere, of course)

To be fair, one of the appeals of mayhem runs in story-driven games is to see if the developers added in a reaction to you just killing everyone you see. Deus Ex: Human Revolution was the last time I tried this and it was... rather disappointing. You can shoot the hostages in the first proper mission execution style and the game will go on as if you simply failed to rescue them, for example.

I’ve started over and I’m intentionally going suuuuuper slow. Once we got to Horseshoe Overlook, I stopped doing any story missions until I had gotten all of the rock carvings and dream catchers, and as many of the dinosaur bones as possible without going into the epilogue area of the map. When I returned to camp, EVERYONE had a snide comment about being gone so long or claimed I had abandoned them. Dutch even had a chat with me. Thankfully, my efforts with chores, chatting, and donating since then have made things turn around completely, but I was considered worse than Bill for a while.

I also highly advise taking care of all of the treasure maps ASAP. It makes a lot of things easier after that.

I’m not going for the full-blown saint run I did the first time, but I’m trying to keep my honor as high as I can while still doing the dastardly things necessary for getting some of the challenges and other side stuff you need to get 100%.

And AGAIN, I’ve found stuff I never had before this run. Stuff I hadn’t even heard of (that a lot of people already knew about.)
