    Maybe I'll get lucky and they'll actually release this one on PC in a year or 2 so we can remove all of this crap with mods.

    You can also change the sprint button on the controls to be like where you toggle on and off versus holding down. RDR I had the same thing though. I remember my thumb getting tired of holding down X, but kinda made me take my time on long travels or take a stage coach or whatever.

    These a-hole witnesses are pissing me off. I just ran into a roadblock of bounty hunters that killed my horse instantly and spilled me into the dirt.

    Thereís plenty of fun to be had, but running around with a bounty on your head isnít much fun.

    I also mix up my left from my right too often, and end up killing someone or starting a gunfight instead of a conversation.

    I don't mean to laugh at your frustration but this sounds hilarious.

    It is pretty funny at times. My first interaction with the trapper in the north west saw me fire a bullet through his chest instead of asking about his neat hats. You canít kill him permanently, but he does now have a permanent open bullet wound in his chest that makes future conversions kind of awkward.

    The constant bounties are annoying. I just ride around everywhere with my bandana on anyway. I never used the fast travel much in the original one because I just like to ride the horse and see all the random events. I know you can upgrade to get fast travel, but I doubt I do it until I have to start covering really large distances as the game progresses. I agree that maintaining all the cores and weight and horse stuff is a pain in the butt. I don't know why they had to go change that to bring realism into the game, I almost wish there was an option to turn that part of the game off. Too often I try to help people in the game and I end up mashing something or running into them and they turn on me. I guess that is why my good and evil meter is almost all the way left towards the evil side. I still like the game and it looks really well. I only get about an hour a night to play so a lot of time is just wasted riding and dealing with strangers. I am nearing the end of the Second set of missions I believe.

    I'm so close to buying the RDRII PS4 Pro bundle, but I also need a new TV. I'd be dropping about $860 on Amazon if I get both. Don't think I can justify it when I hardly play my huge Steam backlog right now - actually I don't at all. Thanks Overwatch.

    Just wait until online, you won't have to deal with the monotonous stuff

    You could always pick up the PS4 Pro bundle now and wait for Black Friday on the 4K TV.

    If I get a PS4 pro bundle, it will be for that Spider-Man game.

    I just got the RDRII PS4 Pro bundle with a new 40 inch Samsung 4K smart TV. My other TV was like 15 years old (also Samsung but 37 inch 1080p w/ the huge bezel) and recently blew up. Literally all the capacitors popped the next day after it worked the previous night. I've been a PC gamer since April 2014 so this is my first console since 360/PS3 which I still own. Also missed playing FIFA and got that itch so picked up FIFA 19.

    It's good. Hopefully they can tighten up some of the input lag/control issues in an update, if that's possible.


    I haven't had too much of a problem with bounties so far, but I'm not that far along in the main mission. I wear the mask or bandana before I do stuff a lot and kill witnesses, if needed.

    You can control the bounties with clothes and your bandana. If you never change your clothes and constantly break laws the cops will recognize you. I've had a lot of fun with this game, I can't get over how entertaining it is to lasso a stranger off their horse and drag them around the map. Very enjoyable

    Itís tough to get that ďman in blackĒ look with the outfits.

    Saint Denis is pretty awesome. I canít bring myself to leave the city.

    Yeah I don't care for the outfits personally. But if you're not worried about that you can dodge bounties better.
