It is kind of amazing how long it takes the game to ramp up.  I thought I had advanced pretty far at one point and realized I hadn't learned how to fish yet in Chapter 2.   :ROFL:
Fishing sucks, you should forget how immediately


It's like super easy, actually.  I've caught most of the Legendary fish.

If my 4 year old didn't get really excited about Arthur catching big fish, I'd probably agree with you.

Bought a PS4 pro with RDR2 included.   Having a hard time getting into it though......

are you still in the snow?

No, I made it through all of that.  I probably need to push through on some of the missions to see if it gets going a little more.  Right now, seems like the only way to make decent money is to snuff out fools and rob them.

I just finished the first one last night.  Those orchids are a pain in the ass to track down.  I basically just stroll around the swamp with eagle-eye going the whole time.  I don't think I will do any more of them.

My son is getting Just Cause 4 for Christmas, which I am looking forward to playing.  Just Cause 3 was super fun, despite looking kinda dumb. I had a blast playing that game.

Completed the RDR2 story last night. Didn't love playing the Epilogue, but man what a great game. Trying to decide if I should go do all the exploring/hunting/challenges etc now, or load a previous save from Chapter 3/4 and just have fun from there.  :dunno:

Anyone play fortnight? I started playing back in March after seeing all the cool college kids talking about it and love it.

If I'm playing by myself I usually play some Disco Domination or whatever game mode they have with 2 large teams to work on my killing/building. If I'm playing with a buddy we will do some duo's/Squads.

Really like how they update the map every couple of months and add new things. Hit me up with your "Gamer Tag" if you want to just dominate with me.

I got a little video game that has a couple hundred old NES games. I've been playing the crap out of Super Mario the past 2 days.

I downloaded a N64 emulator for my computer about a month ago and still need to get a USB controller for it. Old school console games weren’t meant to be played with a mouse and keyboard.

 Rocket League is a blast.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

Been bored, think I'm going to put together a racing simulator for iRacing, but I don't know crap about that stuff. Can i just buy a good gaming PC and have a 3 monitor set up with it? Do I need something special or should I just go to the computer gaming store thing and allow them to charge me out the ass for the needed stuff.

No, I don't want to do VR.

Thanks, guys

Bought RDR2 from positive review and gE as well. First game I’ve bought to actually play myself in prob 10 years. I played for a few days and got bored of it pretty quick.
