Red Dead Redemption 2
I’m finally getting around to playing RDR2. It’s been fun to see past posts where I managed to blog my game experiences (Resident Evil 4 - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5; The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess - 1, 2, 3, 4). Maybe I can do the same for this one?
- OMG, I can’t believe I missed the watch on the pause screen. I equipped one and thought that was the only way to know the time in-game.
- Shot a hotel clerk in the face on accident 😂.
- Asked a friend for a spoiler free explanation on the Bounty system. I basically guessed what it was as I was typing it out. He answered me… about 2 mins after I wandered into a Post Office and figured the answer out in-game.
- Spent the day at work looking forward to playing more. I think I’m starting to get sucked in.
- The open-world-ness is so tough in the beginning. I’m never sure what exactly I’m supposed to be doing…
- I’m now referring to O’Driscolls as O’Doyles.
- Why do I keep losing so many hats?!
- These horse controls are impossible! Here’s a guide.
- Well, I remembered getting new games sucks today.
- The first hour was fun. I think I killed someone on accident.
