I have two more graves to find as well.  I didn't like where they put Hosea and Lenny.

I don't know....if it was, must have been a very fast snake because I was running. I didn't hear any hissing or see the little red dot on the ground.

It sounds more like some player up to no good!

I did go back to that area and couldn't get it to happen again...got the O'driscoll ambush again though.

Are there poison arrows in the game...I can't remember?

Red Dead Online / Re: Let's get in here and be honest for a minute....

Regarding PVP popularity, just look at a general forum like Reddit. The RDR sub has a ton of members and any posts even mentioning PVP are scarce.

I know exactly why, too. And I will explain it because there was something I forgot to mention in my other post.

Ok, yes...they are going to update and add more content to the game....we just have to wait and see what it is and they will tell us on their own terms. That I know to be true. I might be a little hasty in calling the game total garbage.  I am sure that more great things are ahead....I hope.  What scares me is that some people say that they won't add private sessions...what you see is how the game is going to be from here on out with only the addition of more content.  That's really my biggest gripe is not having private/invite only sessions. I'm disappointed and angry.

Going back to my explanation of why I think the PvP popularity is down is that not everyone has the desire to play PvP all day and night.  I see tons of posts on Twitter from people who have invited a bunch of people to online meetups...not for PvP...but creative FUN events!  Someone had a jousting competition. Another had a meetup to glitch over to Guarma. And I'm not talking about just 8 or 10 players....there are 20 - 30 people who come to these type of events!  THAT'S amazing!!!! That's what I want to do and, damn it, I'm jealous! LOL!

What happened to all the fun and creative things this forum used to do?  I remember reading about or seeing videos of you guys doing stagecoach boating, shotgun house, knife/fist fighting tournaments, racing in free roam, glitching off the map, rooftopping and a bunch of other crazy fun random things. Who came up with those ideas? And where are they now? Yea, yea...don't tell me to "stop living in the past"!  We could still do all that (with the exception of stagecoach boating, unfortunately was a bust) and MORE in this game.  Why not? A private session would make doing some events easier, of course. But maybe having to do these things in a public session would attract people to want to join in the fun!

I've already been brutally honest about RDO.  I'm afraid to talk about it any more for fear of sounding like a broken record!  But, since you brought it up and for the sake of conversation....here is some more brutal honesty.....

How could they make such a masterpiece out of the story mode and turn around and release that garbage they are calling RDO....well they got the dead part right. There was way more stuff to do when GTAV Online first came out than this disaster. They did eventually fix the initial server problems of people not being able to get into that first race...and everything was good after that. I'd like to see stats of how many people were playing GTAV Online 2 or 3 months after release compared to RDO.

Rockstar said something like they can't come up with ideas for online since that Leslie guy is gone. He was the mastermind behind all of GTAV Online's success they said. THAT DOES NOT MAKE ANY SENSE when they have their example for ideas right in front of them. Use GTAV's online money making businesses and property ownership, more different types of missions that can be completed solo or with your friends and how about the incentive to actually WANT to play the game! Why can't we steal, keep or sell horses and wagons? That's a pretty basic way to make money and that can't possibly be hard to include in the game when it's already in story mode.  There is nothing that makes any sense out of this game at all.

And don't get me started about PvP! Earlier today I played on a different account where I am only a level 7. I went into the showdown series so I could just get the couple of easy achievements......yea, riiiiight! It would really be nice if they put same-level players in any given match. All a low level is is target practice for higher levels...especially when they have all the fancy cards and you have NOTHING!!!!  THAT is not fair!  I thought PvP was difficult in the first RDR...I was never brave enough to tackle it when I first played it. Now?  It's like a walk in the park compared to RDR2. At least you had a fair chance no matter what level you were.  This game is catered only to those who live for PvP....and there's nothing wrong with enjoying PvP....I just wish that they had more things to do for every type of gamer. You know, so we can all have choices!

I do have a question for the higher level players.....I don't know how high the levels go. Someone said maybe 200? But, my question is....when you reach your high level, have unlocked everything, bought all your guns, horses, clothes and fancy cards, what are you going to do next? How about slowing down a little because you will have nothing left to do and at the rate of how things are going with this beta and no sign of real updates....you are going to be bored real quick! What's the rush?

I really, really want to enjoy this game so much...it's beautiful and I love all the customizations. (I LOVE my new Arabian horse!) I just wish it was more enjoyable for me...and I know that there are many others who feel the same. I see it all over social media. I honestly hope that Rockstar does something very soon.

Yea, I didn't think anything of it when that guy spat in Arthur's face.  I had no clue that he was going to die from TB. When he first started coughing I began to wonder what was wrong.  I think Hosea had TB as well....he coughed a lot.  His death was very sad...I cried more for him than I did when John died.  The emotions, the music at the end....it was heart-wrenching. I became very attached to Arthur and now more so because he made sure John escaped.  The ending was the saddest and happiest moment in that game.  I was still crying and not over Arthur's death and then when I saw I could play as John I started to feel much better.  The Epilogue was really my most favorite part of the game.

Nope, I wasn't close to any bushes. I heard it clearly as something hitting me...I heard that "thwack" sound. And my controller didn't vibrate. My character reacted to it like she was hurt....same reaction as getting shot.

Yea, we know in general how they all met, but it would be nice to see it in detail in a storyline. I mean, I doubt they will end the RDR franchise here with this game.  They still have a lot more they can work with. We could play as Arthur again...a younger Arthur.

Red Dead Online / Weird and odd experiences online
« on: January 14, 2019, 04:49:16 PM »
Don't know if anyone has had any weird un-explainable experiences online or not but, I had something happen last night that was really weird.  I was by myself just exploring around that Black forest area just south of where Pronghorn Ranch would be. I was on my way to Hanging Dog Ranch. No other players were nearby.  As I was riding down the road I got ambushed by the O'Driscolls. Killed them all and started looting the bodies and I heard and felt what seemed like an arrow or throwing knife hitting me. But, NO ONE was around...no other player and no NPC to be seen. At first I just wanted to run away, but I stayed around to see if something else would happen...but didn't.  Later on I got a little message in the top left of my screen that said the effects of the poison had stopped, so I guess it was a poisoned throwing knife?  Is there something or someone(NPC) hiding in those woods or has someone found an invisibility glitch?  That Black forest is really creepy ....going to go back to see if it happens again.

Wow, really?  I LOVED the story and everything about it.  This is the first and only game where I said that I'm replaying it and sure enough, I am currently replaying it and trying to get to 100% on the first playthrough.  I thought they really came through for the fans...the fans of the story line and for the Marston fans especially, which I guess is why I personally love it so much. Yea, I have to agree that it's getting boring now that I've finished all the missions and all that's left is collectibles and challenges. But, there are still so many hidden surprises like easter eggs and different interactions with NPC's.  I am still finding new stuff here and there, but you have to explore and explore deeply to find it.

I can definitely see them making an RDR3!  They could go back even further into another prequel....telling the story about how Arthur, Dutch and Hosea met up. I'd like to know how John and Abigail met and how he got involved with the gang and how he met Arthur.  When Arthur said that he was John's brother....that really made me wonder....did he mean brother as in family member or was it just meant as brothers in arms? There were a lot of things like that left unanswered and a lot of clues that make you wonder.

A remaster of RDR as a story DLC would not be a bad idea!  Call me crazy, but if they did, they could have an alternate ending where Sadie, Charles and Pearson came and helped John fight off the Pinkertons! That would be so awesome...but, I guess that would get them all in trouble again.

Huge fail!  I can't believe Rockstar had to jump on the battle royale bandwagon! Well, I guess it will be fun for some....

Very disappointed to hear that the beta will continue over the next few months. I still don't understand why they didn't add private sessions from the start. What is so hard about doing that?

But, glad to hear that they will add more missions to continue our online story!

Ya, I'll be playing on New Year's Eve...just like any other night. Have to work earlier that day so I will probably be exhausted, but I will still get on the old xbox even if I fall asleep. lol.

You heard right...Glitched Matrix is the modder or one of the modders that broke RDR multiplayer. I know someone with "Glitched" in his gamertag, but he is not associated with Matrix and he is a good friend that does not use game breaking glitches.  I think there might be 2 Glitched clans...I'm not sure, I never kept up with all that clan drama back in the day.

I heard from someone that there is already a god mode glitch in RDR2. I'm not surprised and I agree, it's ridiculous to use cheats in a game like this. But, modders will be modders.

Red Dead Redemption 2 / Future Story Mode DLC a Possibility?
« on: December 26, 2018, 01:18:11 PM »
This guy is a getting a little click-baity with his video titles, but he does have good content.
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiuZor27FNo" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiuZor27FNo</a>

What do you think or hope to be Rockstar's next plans for a possible story mode DLC? What kind of story line or subject would like to see if they add a DLC?

The Atomizer is not really powerful at all. It's actually kinda fun and since it's free...why not? I am enjoying GTA online more than Red Dead Online at the moment.

Also, we get a lot of spambots clogging up the system sometimes.  We have gotten a high volume of them over the past few days. I have been banning bogus accounts more than I have been able to post the things I would like to. But that's ok....glad I'm here to help.

Oh, that's ok, P-Bear. You don't owe me nothing...like I said somewhere before, I don't think I'm cut out for this PvP stuff. I was never any good in RDR1 and I know I'm not going to be any where near as good as you guys....I'm too far behind now anyway.  I play late at night and sometimes in the afternoon for a bit....which I think doesn't line up with your time zone.  You can't teach an old dog new tricks either. I'm afraid I have a little bit of carpal tunnel and my reflexes aren't as good as they used to be. My Xbox is even old....it acts weird and laggy or it might be my internet.  I've watched your videos and also some of Fisherman's and I notice how nice your aiming is...so perfect!  When I tried to do it, my reticule does not lock onto the player...it's like, right in front or behind the other player's head/body....impossible for headshots.

Wow, was that a bunch of excuses or what? lol....no seriously, I'm good!  If any of you want to get together to grind missions, go rooftopping, fishing, hunting, see how many people we can get on a train or some other silly nonsense....I'm all for that kind of fun!

When I get home from work I'm pretty much spent and having A-Fib doesn't make things any easier.  I don't want to have to concentrate on headshots and competition ....I just want to have some silly mindless fun with friends.

I'm somewhere in between losing interest and waiting for the beta to end and them to add more stuff.

Part of me is wondering what exactly Rockstar means by this being a "beta" since they have never done this before, to my knowledge. I'm thinking that this is how the game is going to be from here on out regardless of when and how much more updates/content they are going to add in the future. What I mean is that it's probably going to be just like GTAV Online with constant weekly fixes and minor changes like extra $$ and RP, discounts, gifts and scheduled added content.

I know I keep repeating myself but the biggest thing I'm hoping for is for them to add private sessions and who knows if that is even on their agenda.

I love the clothes and customizations for your character, guns and horses. What I am getting a little tired of is keeping you and your horse healthy with provisions and tonics...it's getting tedious and annoying now. I don't mind it in single player, but in multiplayer there's too much other stuff to keep up with to worry about you or your horse being unhealthy.

But, whatever.....I'm still hopeful that it will get better for everyone so that everyone will have more choices of things to do.

Red Dead Redemption 2 / Achievements and 100% Completion
« on: December 20, 2018, 10:30:26 AM »
For those of us that are still loving the story mode....how close are you to getting 100% completion and all story achievements?

For me, the hardest one is (probably won't get it) the achievement of getting all gold for missions. I will probably give it a try after getting (close to) all the others. My question is when I replay the mission...where does it get saved at and will I be able to continue with my current save. I do have several game saves and I have auto save turned off.

I've missed achievements like "Friends with Benefits"....is there any way I can go back to complete that one?

The one achievement that I am having the most fun with is the one where you have to survive 18 bear attacks.

89.9% completion and 33/51 for achievements.
