Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 3, 2020 by getbent57

It is a bit hard to believe that Red Dead Redemption 2 has been out for two years now.  Remember being so hyped to play this game.  Sadly I have yet to finish it.  Played a bunch of the online but haven’t touched that in a very long time.  With a lot of new games and ones that are all ready out just might not get around to it.  Would very much like too since it an an amazing game.  If you haven’t tried it yourself yet.  It can be found very cheaply.  Worth every penny.

Red_Dead_Redemption_2_The_Complete_Official_Guide_PaperBackI couldn’t resist ordering a copy of Red Dead Redemption 2, The Complete Official Guide.  Ordered the paperback version it was ten dollars cheap then the hardcover.  The book is 352 pages.  So it is pretty big, just like the game.  There are many hidden things in the game that I might never come across.  This guide will help a lot.  Sure there will be lots of video and stuff online.  But being able to just pick up a book and read is just as easy.  Should have it some time next week.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Hands On Update

As I am typing this (November 9, 2018) Red Dead Redemption 2 has been out for two weeks.  Not sure how many hours I have put in so far.  Wish there was a stat tracker for that.  Do know I am about 32% complete.  This game keeps amazing me with all the little details.  The way people and the animals move.  Very life like.  Speaking of the animals.  There has be the most ever in any game.  There are small rats right up to huge bison.  There are even different varieties of some.   All which can be studied.

All as want to talk about the voice acting.  It is the best I have heard.  There are lots of side missions were you meet some crazy characters.  The game while is very serious at times.  There is all so lots of comedy.  Have laughed out a few times.  Have enjoyed my time with the game so far. Well worth the price.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Hands On

Only played about six hours so far but holy shit this game, Red Dead Redemption 2 , is pure awesome.   To be honest was not pulled in right way. All the details and they way the characters interact is amazing.  Am very impressed with the snow.  There are trees covered in heavy snow.  If you brush up against a branch.  The now will fall off and the branch will bounce back.  Didn’t really get into it until you get the point were you are free to do want you want.  That is when the real magic kicks in.  The world feels alive.  I’ll tell one story.  The game lets you interact with pretty much everyone.  Was riding along.  Seen a guy trying to fix a shoe on his horse.  Called out do you need any help.  The guy says sure.  Just as he got the words out.  His horse kicks him in the chest and he died.  It was pretty funny.  Am sure there will be a lot more crazy stuff will happen.

Red_Dead_Redemption_2_The_Complete_Official_GuideYep, this will be one of many more posts about Red Dead Redemption 2.  This one is about the official guides.  Seen them on Amazon.ca.  Am very tempted to get one.  There are two versions.  A hardcover and paperback.  The thing is at the time I am typing this (October 21, 2018) the hardcover is cheaper.  Not by much though, $1.16.  All this info from this book will be online.  It is just kind of nice to have in your hands.  Might get a copy.  They are out the same day as the game, October 26, 2018.

[Update]  Took a look back at the links on Amazon.ca and it turns out they are not available for some reason.  They are on back order.  Guess I will not be ordering one.

Red Dead Redemption 2 My Copy

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 26, 2018 by getbent57

Today is the day, October 26, 2018, Red Dead Redemption 2 is out.  Went and tried to get a copy on my lunch break.  Didn’t even eat first.  There wasn’t any one there.  Walked up to the guy at the counter and asked for the game.  He said, “We don’t have any yet,  may be by 2 or 3pm.”   Thinking how is this possible.  So went back after work.  There still wasn’t any one there.  This time they had all kinds of copies.  Even Special Editions.  Was a bit surprised at that because this store never has games like that.  It comes with extra mission, other stuff and a physical world map.  Thought about it for a second and decided why not and got that version.  Will be back with an update or a new post once I tried it for a few hours.
