Re: Red Dead Redemption 2 > 10/26/18

I just finished Red Dead 1 after completing 2. Gotta say, some moments are much better in that game with so much more backstory.

SPOILERS BELOW for Red Dead 1 (Can't seem to get the tags to work)

* * *

For example Dutch's suicide which didn't quite have the same impact first go round as, well, that character just kinda' showed up for a few missions at the end of the game. Also the moment where you return to Abigale

I'm considering doing a story-only replay of RDR1 when I finish up with RDR2, just because I've forgotten so much of the story. It'll be tough to stop myself from going into collector/completionist mode, though.

I just watched some of the recap videos on Youtube. Didn't want to break out my PS3 to play it again. Didn't really have the time anyway.

I don't want to break out the PS3 again to play any game as it just operates so sluggishly once you are used to playing with the newer systems.

Actually, I didn't mind some elements of returning to a previous console game in this instance mainly that I could run everywhere and fast travel. It only took me about 10 hours to complete the main story, which is all I wanted.

I tried to pick this back up over the weekend before going back to AC. Did a couple fun quests

Spoiler:
Where you're helping both families screw each other. Torching the tobacco fields and giving away all the booze for free at the pub


I plan on eventually finishing the story but it's still not pulling me in. After doing a few quests, i was ready to turn it off again.

I’ve been itching to go back. I had to take a break before the IR turned into burn in on my plasma.

This is on sale for $39.99 at Amazon and Gamestop if you haven't bought it. It was enough of a sale to get me to buy it. I just can't justify paying $59.99 for games. I'm excited to start playing.

It took a while for me to warm up to it but I can't stop now. I'm roaming the map looking for dinosaur bones right now and enjoying it.
