    So is LA Noir the only Rockstar game that you are not forced to play as a criminal in? Its a shame that they bottleneck such a large "open world"  to play in by forcing you to play a set protagonist rather than having a character creation tool and a choice to play as a non criminal. Sure you can decide how "honorable" a criminal the main character is, but even if you dont make him a psychopath the bottom line is that he is still a criminal.

    I enjoyed the first one because you wasn't really running around being a criminal robbing banks and stuff, you was being forced to hunt down the other criminals that were in your old gang. I dont really see the motivation with this one though, its almost like its morphing into GTA.
    Yep, not really my kind of game. GTA is interesting to me, but I haven't played it for the same reason. I don't want to poo on the parade because the game looks like it's amazing, but I do think it's following a formula to a greater extent. It's following a very successful formula that works for them. It's just not for me both in style and the GaaS.

    Hopefully the online mp part will have the option to play as lawmen or bounty hunters etc.

    RDR was one of my top 3 alltime fav games.  I will be preordering this as I can't help myself. :P But I would really, really rather not be forced into being a criminal. It does seem rather ridiculous to be an honorable outlaw. Yet I usually can't play as a full out black hat, even virtually. This is probably why I have never even finished GTA5.

    RDR at least had an interesting tweak that you were trying to be a reformed outlaw who wanted to just be normal and live your little farmer life except for those pesky FBI jerks...zoinks! :P

    It looks like it might be pretty good.
    It is of course being made by a large business with a lot of money,so yeah i would expect it to be good.
    The only negative i can see is that your character should be free to do as he feels and not part of some prescribed scripts within a gang.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    Ok so no PC at launch and maybe not ever. Honestly them making PC players wait months after console players just makes me that much more unlikely of paying full price for the game, if I end up buying it at all.

    That's the thing with Rockstar games, they can make this amazing, immersive and detailed games but they'll lock you with a pre-set character, i wish one day they make one where we can make a our own customizable protagonist and be able to make decisions but that's just me (or perhaps my inner rpg fanboy talking), still love their games though.

    I agree with @Ronald88, the PC market is too big for them to simple miss out, especially with the addition of Multiplayer (gotta sell those shark cards and make a big pile of cash).

    pity its only for consoles. not gonna buy console just for 1 game.



    I bought a console for NHL games. Now I find myself glad I bought a console for a lot of other games as well, this included. Definitely buying this one. You may think of it as buying for one game, but odds are you will enjoy it for a few.

    If I want a world in which people can purchase success and power with cash, I'll play Real Life. Keep Virtual Worlds Virtual!

    I pre-ordered this months ago. I can't wait to get it. So when does the second video clip come out?
  • AlbatroesAlbatroes Member LegendaryPosts: 6,690
    This will have an online mode I'm guessing...? Since GTA5 and has been out for 5 years now and it seems rockstar only cares about that instead of pumping out GTA6. RIP RDR franchise if so....

    I'm very excited for this, October can't come quick enough ;p
    - If it does end up coming out for PC eventually, then I'll probably end up buying it for that too >_>

    Im out on this, no Rockstar game ever again.

    Looks like a boring single player Country GTA for Johnny Cash fans.
    When the online part releases - the mainreason for people to buy this - what will be different to the service quality for online gamers ?
    Rockstar has shown very clear in the past, that they can not handle their online games community.

    You will spend a thousand hours in RD2Online and get reset by hackers and whatnot.
    No thanks, all trust gone ..

    It’s too bad Rockstar don’t believe you can have interesting stories from a woman’s perspective. I would’ve loved to play it if I could choose my gender. But there’s no dev so obsessed with dudes as Rockstar is.

    Actually, most people bought the first one for the single player experience, and I suspect that will be the reason most buy this one. I also never ran into hackers playing online in the first one (just assholes), but to be fair they aren't as prevalent on consoles.

    Definitely getting this day one. Loved the first game. I hope they do an Undead Nightmare DLC for RDR2 as well, because the original is my favorite DLC of all time.

    I've got an Xbox X collecting dust waiting on this game, I loved the first one. I love the virtual worlds Rock Star creates, they're masters at it.

    And speaking of Rock Stars, I'm headed out the door for Seattle and Pearl Jam @7:30 tonight 

    Whoo! Hoo! ;)

    That's a good idea, playing from a female protagonist perspective would definitely give a new fresh take on the gta world and i would wish it wouldn't be another story related to gangs i'm kinda tired of those (GTA San Andreas was the best on that part ijs),

    Makes me wonder why they haven't tried it yet. (Hope is not for the reason you mentioned).

    If it's not on PC, I won't even look at it. Don't care how good it looks or plays.
