Red_Dead_Online.jpgThere is a new mode out for Red Dead Online called Blood Money.  Which came out on July 13, 2021.  While I haven’t gotten to try it yet.  Did see some videos.  It does look interesting.  They re-worked and had some new story missions in.  So having a different way to play the game is nice as. On my next day off plan to give it a try.

Red_Dead_Online.jpgIt has been all most two months since I have gotten back into playing Red Dead Online.   Mostly play with my brother who is really into the game.  I like it a lot as well.  It has improved a lot since it came out of beta.  Can remember when it was first out you couldn’t do much with out other players killing you over and over again.  That being said, it is know were like that now.  Can only think of two times were others gave us any trouble.  In my last post talking about this game.  Was at level 42.   Now I am at level 66. 

Red Dead Online XP

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 20, 2021 by getbent57

Yet again talking about Red Dead Online.  A few weeks ago started to playing again with my brother for the most part.  Am having a much better time with the game then when it first game out.  They add a lot of stuff.  So it makes it easier to get money but you still need to put the time in.  The biggest change is getting XP.  With the new Rolls (jobs) the give out big XP if you finish them.  When I Jumped back in was about level 28.  As of typing his (March 14, 2021) am out level 42.  It did help that those two weeks they were running extra XP events.  However have been helping my brother out with his missions and still was getting lots of XP.

Red Dead Online Helpful Map

A few posts back talked about jumping back into Red Dead Online with brother.  I like doing the collector roll.  This has you going all over the map picking up items.  They can be sold as an item.  But they are worth more as a set.  The biggest draw is it gives you lots of XP.  There is a downside.  To find the items most time you need to buy a map.  Which only give you three locations.  Once you get those, you need to buy another map.  However there is a great online map what pretty much shows you every location for every item in the game.  It can do a lot more was well.  It is called the Jena Ropke Collectors Map.  Which you can check out > here.  I have been using it for a week it its has made it so much faster to level up and make a bit of money.

Red Dead Online Jumping Back In

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 6, 2021 by getbent57

About a week or so ago jumped back into Red Dead Online with my brother.  Haven’t really played the game since some time in 2019.  When the new job rolls first came out.  Well I must say the game has gotten better since then.  Spent most to the time helping my brother out with his jobs.  While working on collecting things along the way.  Made more money and gained XP this way.   Another think that I noticed was there didn’t seem to be many griefers around.  Played for hours and was only shoot once.  Thinking I am going to keep playing some more.

Red Dead Online Gone Standalone

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 1, 2020 by getbent57

Have some more Rockstar Games news to share.  Red Dead Online has gone standalone.  You can read the official post > here.   Starting December 1, 2020 you be able to just buy the Online part of the game on the online stores.  It will be going pretty cheap, $5.00, but only for a short time.  It will go back to it’s regular price ($20.00) February 21, 2021.  Think this is an awesome idea.  Just know it they will be sell a lot of copies come this Christmas.  They are going to be doing something like this for GTA Online as well at some point.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Two Years Later

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 Online Roll Update Hands On

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 14, 2019 by getbent57

The new update for Red Dead Online came out this past Tuesday (September 10, 2019).  Have been looking forward to trying out the new Rolls since they first announced it weeks ago.  The one I wanted to try first is the Collector.  I found the 54 hidden playing cards in GTA Online weeks ago.  But for some reason still had to pay the 15 gold bars to start up the Roll.  Turns out I got an item to start the roll.  To start they give you a free map. Which show three items to collect.  When you bring them back you can sell them or not.  It is best to hang on to them until you get a full set of each type of items.  In the long run you will get more money.  Then you can buy another map which shows three more items.  You can only use one map at a time and each costs a different amount.  For far went though three maps.  This roll is more of take your time and in the long run will get lots of money.  But you still need to be doing other things to make money along the way.  Not sure if will keep playing.  Might try another roll along with this one.  Just need to make some more gold first.

Red Dead Online New Update September 10

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 6, 2019 by getbent57

Back at the beginning of August (2019) they announced there was a big new update coming to Red Dead Online.  This main things being add are three new Roles, Bounty Hunter, Trader and Collector.  Over at the Rock Star Games Newswire the have a post > here, breaking down how it all works.  It all sounds very cool.  They are add and fix a lot more too.  Near the top of the article they talk about dramatic improvement to player control.  The Role I want to try first in the Collector.  To get this started you need to acquire the Collector’s Bag which costs 15 gold bars.  However if you have found the 54 hidden playing cards in GTA Online you get the bag for free.  I did that weeks ago.  Glad I did now.  Looking forward to seeing how this all works.  Will find out very soon.

Red Dead Online New Update Soon

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 7, 2019 by getbent57

Over the months since Red Dead Online was out.  They have been fix and adding stuff all the time.  They have talked about a big new update coming soon a few times.  They have talked about it again in a new blog post > here.  The thing that stands out for me is the they are adding “specialist roles”.  There will be three to start, Bounty Hunter, Trader and Collector.

Bounty Hunter for a life of constant action on both sides of the law. A licensed Bounty Hunter can track down targets and capture – or kill, depending on how honorable you are in your pursuits. Occasionally, a nearby player with a high enough bounty can also be a designated target. Progression will unlock special items like a reinforced lasso for extra-tough targets, as well as intricate gun-spinning tricks and advanced tracking skills like the ability to use Eagle-Eye while sprinting, galloping on horseback and many other special skills, items and upgrades.

Trader is perfect for burgeoning capitalists as you establish and develop a business from your Camp. Thanks to your trusty companion Cripps’ knowledge of furs, skins and butchery, you’ll be able to take on new opportunities to collect materials and produce valuable goods to sell. Increasing your skill as a Trader unlocks the ability to upgrade your Camp with a Weapons Locker, Stew Pot and even allow any canine companion to warn of impending attacks on the camp. As your business expands, you can gain new skills, improve your satchel or add new assets to your business like hunting wagons to bring in bigger hauls and much more.

Collector loves to explore the world for rare and valuable items. Look for a mystic travelling saleswoman in the wild to  get started down the Collector’s path, searching for lost jewelry, rare arrowheads and other treasures to sell as individual pieces or highly valuable sets. As you progress, you will gain access to tools that help your search including Refined Binoculars, a Horse Lantern and even a Metal Detector, as well as gaining additional skills to help you seek and discover the world’s greatest rarities.

There will be more with the update as well.  Just read the link above.  Think this roles are a very cool idea.  With the Trader like the idea of setting up a business in your camp.  But think I will try the Collector out first.  Do like exploring the Red Dead map.  There are still many spots I haven’t been to yet.  Will be back with another post when this update is out.
