Re: Red Dead Redemption 2

Even though I loved the first game, I am going to wait and see how badly they ruined the franchise with microtransactions and lootboxes.

Yep, Activision messed up big time with that star wars game and COD: WW2.

WW2 was so broken at it's release -but guess what did work? Micro transactions.

I heard battlefront was much, much worse and even led to a loss for Activision.

I like following the greed stuff when it comes to these big developers - it's interesting to see how they try to manage it after a games release. You would think they would be more careful in age where everyone has access to mother F them immediately - but not even that stops them in the slightest. It really is interesting.

I could be dead wrong as well but my personal thoughts are that RDR2 will be pretty broken for a while after its release. You have to remember that all of these delays are for hyping the game up only - that's it.

Re: Red Dead Redemption 2

I never had major issues with recent Rockstar games, although i played GTAV on 360 before the current gen release came out. Of course, I only care about the single player anyway so whatever they do in multiplayer doesn't matter to me.

Re: Red Dead Redemption 2

My worry for this comes from all the bad stuff I hear about GTA Online. Take 2 is obsessed with the microtransaction model, and I wonder how that's going to hurt this game.

Re: Red Dead Redemption 2

They will have some sort of shark card system again - I think the entire format will stay the same - they obviously made a killing off of it with GTA online.

The only way I see this not being as successful is if the fan base for a western game isn't as high as it is for a GTA game - they will have to make compromises at that point for sure.

As long as they keep that shit on the multiplayer side, I don't care what they do with micro transactions. Just give me a good single player story like the last game.

Same here. Given two teasers/trailers already this delay has the micro transactions mess written all over it.

Re: Red Dead Redemption 2

It would be nice to see some expansions at some point, and I'm afraid they'll abandon the single player game soon after release and focus on multiplayer. The first game had some very good single player expansions. Given Rockstars record with GTA 5, I doubt we'll see anything like that.

Amen....the Loot Crate & Micro Stuff is becoming a real thorn in the side of Devs who have to walk a thin line of how they work in a game. Too much of it, tilts to Pay-to-Win or forced on you when you reach a certain point you need them to progress and stay competitive can turn players off. The game has a lot of potential in having them...outfits, guns, horses, furnishings...just hope it doesn't go the way of some games of late...
