Been playing Red Dead Redemption 2 story lately, after spending almost a month in Online.

It's good and you get to do stuff like feed klansmen to alligators.

I know it's tempting to kill the klansmen, but don't, let their scenarios play out, they're incredibly inept.

I use isthereanydeal for game price tracking. It was one sale on steam during through Jan 2nd at $47.99, and it was at its lowest price on GreenManGaming at $42.23 through Jan 3rd
https://isthereanydeal.com/game/red...emptionii/info/

isthereanydeal doesn't factor in coupon codes iirc (but they will show them), and GMG had a 5% running through the end of last year. They also don't factor in any discounts like from GMG VIP program or Humble Bundle's subscriber discount. And of course they don't show Amazon on their price history graph because Amazon will cut off their affiliate money if they do.

Witcher chat: I just had the barber scene and the general only asked about his troops, not the events of the past games. Did I screw myself out of content? When the game started I said no to simulating a save, I thought that was like importing a save or something which I don't have.

No, simulating a save is a way for you to go through an in-game Q&A process with a character if you don't have a Witcher 2 save. There is really only one dialogue choice that actually gates content there, and I'm not sure what happens to that content if you don't simulate a save. Even some quick looking doesn't tell me - if you have a manual save without going back too far, it may be worth loading that.

I think the only thing that really matters is whether Letho is alive. The rest is just bits of dialogue. If you killed him his little quest isn't available and obviously you can't bring him to Kaer Morhen.

In terms of actual gameplay, that's accurate. The other answers will change up dialogue and a couple cutscenes, but that's it.

College Slice

I bought some guns when first legally able. College years and after they sat in a closet as I didn't really have the inclination to shoot and definitely didn't have the money to do much shooting.

Then what got me back into guns truly was playing the original Counterstrike. This was in the middle of the AWB. I wandered into a pawn shop and asked the guy how they could sell AKs when there was an AWB. Not long after I bought an AK and that kicked off where I am in the hobby today.

Game stuff I reloaded FO3 and played a bit and now am playing through FONV. The first time I played NV I rushed through the main campaign so I'm taking my time with it this time around with some mods. The Western aesthetic and guns is part of the real charm of the game to me so yeah, now I'm thinking I should get Red Dead. Also thinking about returning to Witcher 3.

Hell yeah dude you're in for some fuckin' gaming.

Homeworld 1 was one of my Youth Games, I ended up with the collector's set with the silver box and the soundtrack and all the technical manuals and lore books.



Also I rebought RDR2 and managed to get it working by loving around non-stop with admin mode for various poo poo. If I weren't transferring poo poo to a new hard drive I got (fun thing they make 8TB hard drives now so I can consolidate all these smaller older ones into bigger new ones) I'd be cowpoking right now.

You couldn't grok my race car, but you dug the roadside blur.

https://store.steampowered.com/app/696650/BLACK_DAY/

I saw this game, Black Day, on RPS in the Flare Path.

He touted it as a sort of spritual successor to OG Ghost Recon or a better Wildlands. IIRC the dev also mods Arma 3 and there's definitely some DNA of A3 in here.

It's surprisingly well put together but still really rough around the edges. The AI pathfinding is way better than I expected and I love the customization and weapon variety already. It's very early access still.

I refunded it just because I probably need the 15 more than the game atm. I'm gonna keep an eye on it though.

Edit: I posted a steam review and saw this in another review.

..x3 gamemodes
...x21 terrific maps (with time-of-day and weather variables!)
...x28 different difficulty variables

It's surprisingly fleshed out for alpha. Like I said, definitely going to watch out for this one even though I refunded it.

i hate how there's no trigger discipline in video games, safeties aren't on, and you can just point your gun at everyone instead of lowering them when in buildings or talking to people. it turns me off of games these days unless i can mod it out.

There are a few games where walking around with your poo poo out and pointing at people gets a pretty negative reaction. Plenty of RPGs. RDR2 is one I can think of right now, but there's a bunch.

Just murder random NPCs and steal their horses, then ride them until you find another person to kill, kill them and execute the previous horse.

Extra points if you can steal a wagon because then you get more horses to murder.
