My 3 things that will determine if this game is successful or not.

1. riding buffalo
2. riding side saddle in pretty pretty dresses
3. a punt gun to kill all the geese

Excellent dress spotted at 5m 45s

I'm not alone in thinking that "tap button to sprint" is horrendously stupid, am I?

Nah it's a bit annoying, especially when you can get around it in GTA5 by going into first person mode and holding the run button.

Youtube speculation video ahead, but I was kinda wondering why some enemies had glowing heads in the gameplay trailer.

There might be some sort of x-ray kill cam thing tied to dead eye this time? That'd be pretty neato.

It has broken bridges preventing you from gooding to the other areas iirc

Yeah, though you could do some shenanigans to get into them early. Like getting arrested north of Bonnie's ranch where the game recognizes you as being in Tall Trees, you go to jail in Blackwater. I always did this once I got the lasso so I could go and get the best horse immediately, same for the buffalo rifle

Getting back into New Austin was a little tricky as you had to jump the gap at Thieve's Landing just right.

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.

What's causing the bottleneck inside the PS4 hardware that an external drive going through USB is faster than internet going through SATA? I also thought you couldn't play games through external drives. I'll have to see if my game loads up that slow, I don't remember it being that slow at all.

I honestly wish I knew cause it doesn't make any drat sense. Searching around youtube and various subreddits for PS4 games suggests it's at least partially worth it in that some games benefit more than others, but this:

Thief posted:

one of the biggest problems with GTA5 was the loadtimes so cutting them down at all is a probably not a bad thing to prep for

Is a big selling point to me. I played GTA5 on a regular platter drive for a while and going to an SSD was a massive improvement.

I went looking around for prices on guns in 1899 the other night to get a feel for the in game economy, what with playing cards for cents, gator eggs being a high risk item that net you $2.50 a pop, and a few interviews and previews stating the game will have real world period accurate prices for items. Closest I got was a Sears-Roebuck cataloge from 1902 that someone took pics of with their cell phone.



Pump shotguns for double the price of a double barrel






Various ammo prices



EXPLOSIVE AMMO CANNOT BE SENT BY MAIL


Hell of a jump in price from the first shotgun to these, holy crap:


A Sharps rifle for $3, yes please

Between Amazon Prime and Netflix there's a good selection right now. Netflix has Unforgiven, Silverado, Hateful 8, Slow West, and The Homesman. Amazon Prime has The Man with No Name trilogy, Hang 'Em High, 3:10 to Yuma, Magnificent 7, Stagecoach, etc.

The Salvation is pretty good too, though I'm a giant loving nerd for Mads Mikkelsen so I may be biased in this regard

Really wish I kept that big black fucker of a horse at the start of the game, I'd have called him Stanchion or something. Anyone know where I'm getting these names from? I'm ridiculously unoriginal.

Those are pretty good names, though. So far I've got a Hecate and Artemis, need to find a horse fitting to be named Nyx and Frigg now

So like split point ammo is superior to regular ammo and literally costs nothing to craft but time?
