Red Dead Redemption II |OT| Who knew horse testicles had such a crunch?

I always have the feeling that i'm wasting my time when i play this game. It's like i spend 20 minutes riding a horse and 5 doing something cool.
I think it's a good game. But i'm not having fun.

Exactly. After 20 hours I'm feeling the same way. About to the point I want to look up how the story plays out on Youtube.
 
I recently bought a rifle from a gun shop and for some reason the double barrel shotgun that was on my horse is not there anymore! It also says I don't own the gun when I look at the catalogue from the gun shop. This happened earlier when I bought a repeater and the pump action shotgun I had is nowhere to be found. Does the horse only carry a limited amount of weapons? Has anyone ran into this problem?
 
All right, I guess this is a spoiler. If someone can help, well, that would be cool.

The old soldier got killed, and he asked me to take care of his horse, Buell. Buell disappeared on me after I quit the game, and I can't find him at the soldier's cabin, at my camp, or in a stable. Does he just disappear? Is it possible to make Buell your main horse?

Thanks in advance.
 
i've pretty much lost interested in this :( hunting is a nightmare. i can't get the stuff needed to upgrade/craft. i've lost track of the story completely. i just can't find any focus or motivation to progress the game.
I completed the story without doing one, single piece of hunting and I didn’t get any upgrades or craft anything. It doesn’t matter and isn’t important— if hunting is not enjoyable, stop and do something else.
 
Wow. The bounty/wanted system is actually pretty deep and makes a lot of sense.

This video makes sense of it all.

This is a great video. Really made me understand the wanted system and I'm glad it pointed out that witness icons seems to be broken, because I did notice that. I'm quite surprised there have been no patches for the game yet.

Though I still don't like how cops instantly know who you are and how many suddenly show up when you're wanted.

Im in the middle of chapter 2 I think

And so far NO INDIANS in the game. Thats strange, since we saw indians in the opening, and I just stepped in an indian burial ground, exactly like the one in the movie Bone Tomahawk

I expected some retaliation like in the movie, but so far, nothing

There is a Native Reservation NE of Valentine.

That's because there are no Indians in the game. There are native Americans.

You'll interact quite a bit in the late stages of the story. You're still just past the beginning. Keep going!
 
Is there an outfit that's as black as possible. I want to look like a ninja. lol.
some side missions are time relative I think, such as fishing and hunting

they only apear in certain hours of the day
I don't know... they are just camp activities? I think some main mission blocked them or it bugged out. I can't even talk to Javier contextually.
 
Finished the main story last night, and man, what a ride. The game is not without flaws (primarily control-related), but really, what an engrossing experience. I genuinely felt like I was living as Arthur in this universe. As the events leading towards the game's conclusion transpired, I found myself cursing out certain characters in one scene, and getting choked up during other parts - I can't say I'm often emotionally invested in video games, but that was certainly the case here...in particular (not really a spoiler, but)...
there's a moment in the game where you're riding alone after a particularly harrowing experience, and Unshaken by D'Angelo kicks in and it just fits the situation and mood so perfectly. You're forced into cinematic camera and you can just sit back and take in the heaviness of it all. A similar moment also happens later with another great tune.
Really powerful stuff...

if they are white, in the camp, I think its fishing or hunting. Story missions are yellow

but the caracters will give tips and itens regarding those activities
 
Some of the white missions count towards story completion though, like all of Strouss’s debt collections and those too can be missed if you don’t do them in the available chapter.

Yeah, I dunno. Guides say Javier's homestead robbery can be done in the next chapter, but I might miss out on Charles's Bison hunting. They aren't critical. I just wish I knew which mission is going to flip the chapter.

Is it obvious?
 
So there are those three symbols in the upper right corner of the camp, right? I always try to buy as much medicine as I can, for example, but the symbol stays yellow.

The second moment you're talking about damn near killed me.
 
I had a heavy moment last night when I received a
letter and the ring back. I totally forgot about her quest line. I helped her brother from the cult, which was very funny
It was such a small thing to happen, but the impact of that was enough to leave me thinking.
 
How about dat scene when

Arthur sees the nun at the train station, she's about to head out of town permanently, and they have a talk, he tells her about his sickness and admits that he's afraid. It's her advice really that sets him on his path to Redemption in the final chapter. that one got me

Great scene. You learn a good deal about his actual family too. Powerful stuff. The nun was one of my fav characters.

Im in chapter 5, finally found a perfect iguana skin for the last part of my legendary satchel, and Pearson isnt anywhere to be found to craft it. Fucking annoying, first time in 50 hours I have actually been pissed about something in this game.
 
Just finished. More to come on that.

Got through about a half hours worth of credits that are actually worth watching all the way through because story bits are interspersed throughout.

Lotta musicians worked on this. Jon Theodore for example, the original Mars Volta drummer, contributed some percussion and drum parts.

What struck me the most though is that Daniel Lanois did a huge chunk of the soundtrack next to Woody Jackson and I KNEW I recognized the vibes.

This dude did the soundtrack to Sling Blade (one of my favs of all time)

This track alone has an RDR2 feel to it


Still some stuff I gotta finish up so I’m not totally through yet, but MAN WHAT A FUCKING RIDE

Top ten OF ALL TIME
 
As I said, I really liked the game, but
I find myself with little desire to play the epilogue. I played for about 15 minutes yesterday, and apparently I'm going to be a delivery/errand boy for a while? Sure, I'd like to clear that, but do I get to run around in the open world as Arthur again after everything is completed?...playing as John doing this stuff for hours on end just isn't grabbing me. It gets more interesting I would imagine, but is it up there with the rest of the game?
Perhaps I'll give it another shot, but yeah...

Go to sleep maybe that helps
 
curious if someone else had this as well. Its about chapter 5 so spoilers ahead

Alright.. Now that I am getting further.. Got to chapter 5. I'm starting to miss my camp :( And not the house.. That was a lame camp. But the first 2 camps. Shit, I miss those moments of just chilling in camp.. Anyone else had this?

"Nope. Which has fucked me off no end. So going to replay and make new saves during each chapter. I have missed a couple of missions I've since found out, which is fucking annoying. The design of this game at times is a joke."

Wow, this South Park scene is ME right now, no joke!!! I have literally been up for 2 full days because of RDR2 (Only feels like a few hours!) i turned it off about 30min ago, took a shower, now im in my bed watching video's on it! 😂 It's truly THAT addicting/amazing!!! I ran out to Best Buy 2 days ago and purchased a 75" Samsung QLED mainly for RDR2, this game is controlling my life, AND I LOVE IT!!! 😂😂😂👍

My pics of the night... 😁

You'll do some missions with Sadie and there's a big moment at the end of the epilogue which ties up a loose end from the story .. won't want to miss that IMO
 
Damn, can someone just spoil me about who is the character with the last mission?

I'm at
doing a train robbery with John. Micah mission is also available.
That is exactly where I am at too.

I did the Mary mission, that was a well acted/emotionally relatable one. I did the first part of the John mission of stealing the kerosine wagon. Be careful, they can shoot holes in it and cause a leak. So now I have the part of meeting them with the train to do, and still Micah for Dutch.

The world here is so beautiful and immersive that simple act of walking or riding in it is enjoyable for me; it is one of the most immersive games ever made. Though it helps that it really is sprinkled with various random encounters quite often and is consistently well written.
