Do you have to be in camp to fast travel? I tried to fast travel from Strawberry to Valentine and it wouldn’t let me.

And you can do cinematic auto travel. Set your waypoint, then hold down the Touchpad on PS4 and you will be at your destination in a couple minutes.

Just don't go take a whizz or make a salami sandwich. That's when the hoodlums ambush you and rob you of all your legendary pelts. It's like a world of Antipops out there.

Yup, that's the most accurate way to describe it. :cool:

By the way, newbie here. Whenever I'm taking a break from this particular interest, I'm usually found at home, feeding my Pomeranian with some treats and watching TV with my wife. And when we're not indoors, we would play catch in our backyard with our dog (though we had to secure one of those petsafe Stay+Play wireless dog fence, just so he wouldn’t stray far from our yard. Our neighbor had a weak wooden partition, and we once had an argument when the poor fella ended up on his lawn). Such a simple, yet, happy life. Cheers!

i finished the game this weekend...

it's a fantastic game and R* created something very special that can hopefully move the entire industry forward....the story is top tier for any kind of entertainment medium....the attention to detail is just ridiculous and there is so much to do in the game....

that being said, it's just not the GOTY for me....apparently, R* was too busy creating the world and story to put any effort in to the actual gameplay mechanics...the gun combat is not engaging and the maylay combat is pretty terrible....

and some of the 'survival' mechanics of the game are just cumbersome....eventually, you don't have to pay as much attention to them....except you always have to brush the damn horse...

anyway, the game really is special in a lot of ways...but some aspects are baffling to me....God of War is still my GOTY because it basically gets everything right...the story might not be as good as RDR2 but story is just one aspect of GOTYness

Other than the wonky controls which are pretty much so the same as Rockstar has had for the last couple GTAs and RDR1, the game is spectacular. The attention to detail is great, but what really stands out for me is the story telling and that has set a high bar that will be difficult for other developers to reach. So, to me, it's a close call with God of War. But I give the edge to RDR2 because although the GoW controls are top notch, the combat does get rather repetitive and goes a little bit much toward button mashing in GoW, and the sheer scope and story telling push RDR2 over the top for me. GoW is still an amazing game, I just think RDR2 is something that will change gaming from this point forward. I see it as GoW perfected the Action Button Masher where as RDR2 changed the game and revolutionized Adventure Games/Open World gaming.

On a side note, if we could combine Bungie's controls and hit detection with Rockstar's story telling, you would have a perfect game.

Did yall find the Cult cabin full of skeletons?
I found an abandoned cabin at the top of a hill with skulls in it. It was more like an abandoned compund. I brought the horse in, but it got spooked and gtfo.

Wierd music started to play. As I was leaving there was a red dot suggesting a predator was near, but I saw nothing. Sure enough I didn't look down. Got bit by a Northern Copperhead before I killed and skinned it.

FYI, will need some gensing or your health core will drain faster than normal (they made reading your health status uncessecarily complicated).

I'm also with Buzd. Game si alright but not the best ever. Certainly not on the GTA level. Full of glitches too.

Well, GTA is in a league of its own. In my opinion, no other open-world game can ever top the GTA series.

GTA 5 is more fun to play, but RDR2 has a much better story. RDR2 is like a playable movie where as GTA 5 is still a video game. The characters in RDR2 are fully developed where as in GTA 5, there are caricatures of modern day criminals. I get how some wouldn't be into the way RDR2 works, but I think it's brilliant as art and very good as a game.
