Re: Red Dead Redemption 2
As happy as I am about more Red Dead (RDR is one of the best games of the last console generation), how the hell did they come to the conclusion that they should call this RDR2? There's nothing, nothing about RDR's ending that is in any way conducive to making a sequel set in the same setting.

Re: Red Dead Redemption 2
hey but u see now we can make a trilogy of four games like mass effect its gonna be glorious

 
Re: Red Dead Redemption 2
I hope they'll bring this, and the original RDR to PC. Maybe bundle them together as well. I suppose it's good they're working on a new one but we'll have to see how good the writing, characters, setting etc will be.
I'm all about getting the most out of games, so whenever I discover something very strange or push the limits, I upload them here:

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress to more pain."
- George Orwell

RDR still is one of the breathtaking games I've ever played, there were times I would just find a good vantage point and take in the world.

I suspect the answer involves the phrase "do you see this empty stadium? this is the room for people who are likely to actually care".

Re: Red Dead Redemption 2
If Final Fantasy and Far Cry can have 500 different titles with no relation to each other whatsoever, I'm not really bothered with two RDR.

Red Dead Redemption was already an unrelated sequel to Red Dead Revolver; that's what he was complaining about (that they should have made a new Red Dead instead of making RDR2).

I also heard it was a prequel, which would be really disappointing.

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"

<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

Re: Red Dead Redemption 2
Honestly, most of my objection comes from Red Dead Redemption being thematically about the end of the Old West. Its whole theme is "this era is coming to an end, so settle your scores now"; calling a new game in the series Red Dead Redemption 2 is ... weird, given that.

I mean, I am overthinking this of course. But only because RD Redemption truly is one of the best examples of what video games can be when they move away from classical hero stories and try to explore classic tragedy instead.
