Tempted.

Someone lent me God of War. Itís an amazing game, but hack and slash isnít my number one genre. Iím not drawn to it every night by any means, so might be giving it back tomorrow.

I was waiting for BFV to be honest. Does Red Dead have an online element like the original?

Not long now. Might treat myself to a new controller too smile

Anyone know of a good deal on the game? Tescos are giving away a horse skin if you pre-order crazy
I seem to remember tescos selling horse meat not long ago, maybe the two are connected smile

Red Dead review


[re: Lt_Swan] [link to this post]
 
Played it for a few hours yesterday
My review is that's it's Ok

Nowhere near as good as I was expecting, if I'd have known I would have waited for the price drop

My advice is don't rush out to buy it smile

Good review here

https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-10-25-red-de...

Red Dead Redemption 2 struggles to find a place for you as it tells its own story; the main missions stick too rigidly to the aging template of heading out to a point while characters chat amongst themselves, and when you get there, too often all you're allowed to do is perform a handful of quick-time events and engage in the inevitable shootout.


IMO UC4 is a much better game and it's definitely more fun to play. This game seems pretty boring so far

Maybe rdr2 will grow on me.... :/

Oh yea the controls are pretty [censored]

Thanks for the heads up mate. I didnít much like the controls in the the first game, so itís a pity they havenít improved.

Iím sure it will grow on you, bit Iíll take your advice and give it a miss for the time being.

I think most reviewers are too interested in the graphics, rather than look in depth in the game. It's something I try to avoid.

I have to say it does become more immersive the more you progress, as for the controls I wasn't expecting anything other from Rockstar, it's no different to the first and GTA.

I generally get rid of any games that you have to force yourself to play - it's just not worth your time (or effort), and you would never really enjoy it later on anyway

A couple of suggestions to improve the controls. Toggle to run is something I always set when itís an option in game, to save my thumb and avoid controller wear.

That aside, I bet it looks good on the X though.

Yeah I've changed to toggle to run setting, my mate has also pointed out that if you set a waypoint you can actually auto ride to your destination with no controller interaction which I'll give a go next time on it.
It looks amazing mate, as does Forza Horizon 4, which I would highly recommend with it being a play anywhere title that plays fantastically on PC too!!

Free gold


[re: Lt_Swan] [link to this post]
 
Very easy to get gold.
Go to the Sheriffís office in Limpany, a burnt out town. Limpany is directly South of Calibanís Seat and just North of Flatneck Station. It is very close to your base camp at Horseshoe Overlook.

Look in the Sheriffís office.
There's a loot box under the desk.

Thought it's a pretty good game but it's way overhyped although in 4k it looks amazing. The controls are [censored] awful for a shooter tho and feel like the first one 8 years ago. Also they appear to have amazing forensics as it seems if you kill someone (and leave no witnesses) if and when the body is found then a bounty gets placed on your head.
I swear you can pretty much get a bounty in a town for just bumping into a dog LOL.

People are [censored] too, just bumping into someone [censored] them off enough for them to pull their gun and shoot at you leaving you no choice but to return fire, then a witness sees this and calls it murder which means you have to kill him to stop him reporting you.

LOL I know I've had exactly that happen out in the open, I've then had 1 person witness me killing the guy so try to report me so I've killed him as well (so no witnesses left) and yet I still get a bounty when a random NPC finds the body down the line.
I actually thought I had missed a witness the first few times but then i saw a stream where a guy does the above and then goes quite far away from the guys he's killed and perch on the side of a cliff and look through his binoculars at the bodys and as soon as a NPC found the body BOOM Bounty added.

At this rate, I'm just going to buy up all the ammo and just shoot out the whole town leaving it a ghost town and be done with it.
