I absolutely love good snow effects.



New hat! With rat! And bullet hole! Also nice to see the Volcanic pistol is back and you can mix and match your pistols. Now show me the drat LeMat and the Sharps rifle already

I really hope Rat Hat isn't a special hat and is indeed what you get when you turn a rat corpse into a hat. It gives me hope that all 200ish animals can then be fashioned into clothing. Trout hat. Gila Monster hat. Turkey vulture hat. Even if it's just feathers/scales/accoutrements I will wear every drat animal in this game.

It's been stated they used a thousand extras for NPC's dialogue, all the gameplay videos show the interaction UI but nothing menu driven, but from what I've read it's very hands on much like LA Noire when examining evidence, fast travels done from your main camp or personal camp much like RDR.

There's also a sort of "slow fast travel" they described that has me very excited: set a waypoint, and you can turn on the cinematic camera and just hold a button and your horse will path along the roads and trails to your destination as you watch the scenery all movie-esque.

It's something I wish GTA5 had, outside of the taxi system.

I have gta5 but never played online. Is this something I could do never having played before?

Yes, just go through the online tutorials and make sure you select Invite Only lobby so you aren't harassed by psychopaths, then just drive around until you receive two emails on your phone with instructions for a treasure (the revolver) and from someone detailing a bounty hunting mission (which leads to the hatchet upon completion of several). It should only take an hour or two to get both weapons

Has there been any information about the possibility of ballistic system in this game? It'd be cool if I can shoot through fences and wagon walls and stuff, but I don't know if Rockstar has ever implemented one.

Also, I hope I can kneecap fools in this game, I feel like GTA V toned down the Euphoria physics system a lot compared to RDR and GTA 4.

Some of these previews describe destructable cover objects like barrels and wagons and such. I don't think you'll be able to dynamite through a house but I expect a lot of splintered wooden crates and barrels after a good gunfight.

Weapons update. The more I read about this game the less I can believe it's even real, but everything so far has been verified by previews and official media. I guess this is what you get when you have unlimited money and effectively unlimited time to make a game. Next two weeks are going to be slow waiting.

Also how customization will work? Like in the first game were you buy entire sets? Ir more like in GTA ?

There are "sets" but it sounds like every piece of the outfit is custom. Shirt, pants, coat, boots, etc. I even read that you can decide whether or not sleeves are rolled up or pants are tucked into boots

Im looking forward to the online. Not because I want to play it because I want to see how much naked greed they can squeeze into a western.

Hot air balloons with miniguns and bombs? The spider thing from wild wild west?

Honestly as someone who enjoys the ridiculous crap in GTAO like flying legally distinct DeLoreans and a rocket powered not-quite Batmobile, going all in on steam powered spider mechs is fine by me. They need to either keep it simple and realistic, or balls out insane. Middle grounding it will just feel lame.

It's just this review. And the investigative report into Rockstar the other day. These are the only good things on Kotaku. But seriously that review is probably the best gaming review I've ever read, and it goes into the human cost of creating a game like this, which is a conversation people do need to start having if you consider games an art form.

I mean I don't begrudge you wanting an "is this worth what could be an entire day's pay depending on my job" review. Nothing wrong with that. That's fine. I just like the more academic ones that I've been seeing become the norm these days. Hell, some sites don't even give numbers anymore.

Hey, I got one weird question, I picked up a pack of premium cigarettes and got some cards with it. I've found other packs, but I can never pick them up. It says I don't have room. Where are the premium cigarettes stored? Cause I've sold most of my items and think I have space everywhere.

Same slot in the items tab as all your canned corn and peaches. Left on the wheel. Chain smoke the premiums so you can always get cards when you find a pack.

Health cure is medicine. It's not going to help wolf bites unless you're a video game protagonist. Whiskey doesn't help either (he still dies) but it lets him relax a little

If you play a lot of poker you really get to see the range of characters in the game. There seem to be three or four classes of online character: Fancy Lad/y (all slacks/dresses and tailcoats and top hats), Murder Boy (Black on black on black with red highlights and an eyepatch or scar), Cowpoke (Your mid tier cowboy gear, pants with holes, patches, old man moustaches), and Mountain Hobo (animal skin chic, outfit contains several faces, only one human).

It's really quite fun. Personally my guy is like, a 75 year old Cowpoke with that one droopy sad moustache.

Yeah. Harriet only has specific variants of animals, and currently no gator. The rest are free roam on your map, with spawn criteria that you have to stumble across/google for. The two gators are free roam, and their criteria is in the announcement newspost.

You hear people say 'the patch broke the game on ps4' but you don't believe it until you crash 3 times in a row within 5 mins of starting.

Normally I take the patch complaining with a grain of salt, but yeah this is the worst I have ever seen it run on PS4 since launch. Normally you get disconnection errors but I was getting full on blue screen app crashes which never happens.

And it's a double kick in the pants because this is on the heels of the game running the best I had ever seen it run.

In single-player, I found a Reddit post showing where a good spawnpoint was - drop some predator bait, lurk quietly, murder. But that was mainly to get the kittybits needed for crafting... only really went back for the Legendary spotty rear end in a top hat cat.

I know you said single player, but does bait ever work in online? Even after they fixed animals I have never gotten it to work.
