More info will be added as it becomes available, based on the pre-order bonuses/special edition rewards, it certainly sounds like this will be the best cowboy barbie game of all time.

I will not shut up about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I talk about them all the time and work them into every conversation. I actually named my daughter after the Pink ranger and will provide proof if challenged.


Excellent title.

I enjoy metal because of its dark, creepy, intense aesthetic.




Oh poo poo, RDR2 is coming out this year? For some reason I thought it got pushed back to Q1 2019, although I guess there's still plenty of time for them to do that as well.

RDR is one of my favorite games of all time, and I hope this one is just as enjoyable although I am a bit worried about modern Rockstar's handling of... well, anything. At least most of the microtransaction poo poo will be confined to the multiplayer, I guess.

I am not opposed to a cowboy skyrim barbie game. Do we know anything about the mechanics? I tried replaying the first game recently, but the controls didn't age well after having played Uncharted 4 and Bloodborne.

It didn't say it was coming to PC. A lot of people just assumed it would, because “hey, everything comes to PC now!” If PC gets it, it will be in a couple of years.

I don’t know what Mandela’d means, though, so I might be misunderstanding what you mean.

It's either the feeling that you're memories are wrong because you've transferred to another reality or being kept in prison for 27 years.

Also, I'm going to throw out my story speculation now so I can be smug about it down the line or quietly stealth edit it out. I'm guessing Arthur betrays the gang for a pardon and part of the reason the government was so adamant about hunting the remnants of the gang is he is pushing for it.

As a Rockstar game it will no doubt have a lot that's incredible but also some things are stupidly frustrating, but goons will latch on to one or two things and repeat them forever in order to sound smart when they point out "actually, this hugely popular game sucks rear end".

Like whining about the phone calls in GTA4, which you could turn off, or "if this game is so great how come Niko isn't sad that I just ran over 100 people and shot 10 cops HUH? MY LUDO-NARRATIVE DISSONANCE"

I'm guessing that Arthur is running for office or something, but yeah pretty much.

Oh and some speculation for online. I'm thinking that the camps are going to be a combination of GTAs Nightclub and MGS 5s Mother Base. I mean you can only make so many river boats, horses and buggies. Customized forts and PVP raiding sounds like the sort of thing that will move snake cards.

I am going to love this game enough to let it peg me and go atm on the first date

I will also call in sick to work to attend the midnight release, install it and download the day 1 patch for 2 hours, and then play the game for approx 3 hours until game breaking bugs make it literally unplayable until it is patched 2 weeks later. My boss will instantly know why I called in and I will get in trouble.

From what people have been able to extrapolate, it's looking a bit closer to Max Payne 3 in some ways. We've seen dual wielding guns, and it doesn't seem that you infinitely store a million guns up your butt. The recent gameplay video talked about how extra weapons are stored in your saddle. The expectation right now is that you get a melee knife, lasso, two handguns, and two two-handed guns at any given time. The last gameplay video's brief scenes of action showed stuff a lot smoother than GTA V.

As an immersion junkie, this is looking like my ultimate game. Stuff like the ability to actually take care of your horse, pour yourself a cup of coffee, hang out around a fire with your camp, and fish are the stuff I live for. I feel like this is Rockstar seeing just how far they can go with immersion on something lower stakes than a new GTA.

Rockstar is clearly going for that Japanese market by putting in a fishing minigame.

RDR was great but after single player was done, the thing I did more than anything else was climb on top of that one cabin that had the massive cougar attack and just snipe cougars because gently caress cougars. I'll be very disappointed if this game doesn't offer the same cougar-sniping experience or tries to foist adrenaline on me by forcing me to actually avoid cougars instead of cowering on a building.

I hope there's a mission where an irritating dude makes outrageous demands for assistance and the player character paces backwards and forwards, blustering and threatening, before grudgingly agreeing to help them.

3. a punt gun to kill all the geese

I would go up to Torquemada (i think? the big fort right on the cliff side) and push the soldiers off the edge, the trick was to just slowly walk in to them and "guide" them over the edge rather than using the push button because then they'd all just start shooting at you

Diabetes, you are not invited to my pizza party.


I’m torn between getting this for PS4Pro or XB1X. I don’t really care about online, so it’s kinda down to which it’ll look better on. Is it safe to say that it’ll look better on the X? Or has rockstar not really done enough this generation to say one way or another

I'm kind of in a similar situation. I have a PS4, but it's hard to go back from a powerful computer to an underpowered console. The xXxbonexXx seems to be the more powerful "current" console, buying into that ecosystem has the possibility of it being a play anywhere title in the future, and the gamepass would be a good chance to catch up on games i missed.

On the flip side, i do already have the PS4, and i really don't look forward to paying for online again.

I don't know if i'm going to get more into Fallout 76 or RDR:O so the prospect of $600 for the console and $50 for online to play RDR:O at a reasonable visual fidelity vs just playing Fallout 76 on PC until RDR2 comes to PC.

As for what Rockstar has done this generation, their last new game was GTA 5 in 2013.
