On that subject, I honestly have no idea what is the easiest way to save. Finishing a mission?

The mission thing is a method. I usually suicide. I know fast travel does it, since you’re looking at the clouds, indicating a fresh reload. But that costs money.

Side note - don't know what I expected, but these servers are as dog shit as the GTA ones. I picture a smoking server rack in a rusted out warehouse somewhere with Milton from Office Space sitting in front of it in the dark, bitching about his stapler.

 

Which is funny since for this game, they specifically started using top tier servers. Yeah, it’s still peer to peer, so you’ll have you’re occasional McDonalds WiFi player, but they have upgraded them for full blown online coming up. 

Today they were pretty shitty though, I agree. A lot of bad frame rate issues.

I have a character built, I'll take a pass through the Social Club.

I did the first introductory mission after building the most precious character ever - he makes the rednecks from GTA 5 look like society types. Of course, at the end of the mission, I kept seeing the spinning wagon wheel of death, so  that was the end of that.

I show offline even though I have the privacy settings set to "adult." I dunno what's wrong. Gonna try some stuff soon.

Apparently there are 0 crew requests in the Social Club, but the whole Social Club via computer thing is acting kinda wonky.

My schedule has been super wonky, and will be for a week or two.  When I do log on, I always see invites from the day before.

Did get online a bit this afternoon.  Bolt action rifle has made a world of difference, mainly because I can get good/perfect pelts pretty regularly now.  Made about $50 in maybe 30 minutes from a few of those - enough to get the rifled barrel upgrade for that gun - the last one I needed that actually affects performance.  It's pretty good at one shotting players too, which is nice.

The game doesn't time you out if you go AFK.  I left it on for at least an hour, came back and found Reba the meth addict still standing in the gun store.  

Gotta say Rippa is wrong about the map being too big to run into people.  Sure, it's a huge map, but 99% of it consists of fuck all.  If you're in a town, you're probably not alone.  And since every town other than St. Denis is the size of a postage stamp, you're usually right on top of somebody else.b

Figured this out this today after getting about 100 or so headshots on somebody before I got bored and went to make dinner. The rubberbanders are still in effect though. 5 of them do-si-do’ing when we were racing earlier. Which I don’t mind, as I get a better payout and reward after winning.

It's funny how much this online is like GTA Online except you're delivering horses and wagons instead of briefcases and cars.

When I spawned into a room, I had three other players within easy traveling distance, so everybody's not as far off as you might think.

I have seven cents to my name at the moment, after buying the pump shotgun.  Good luck to the stable guys on collecting those daily dues.  There outta be an achievement for this.  We could call it the Dan, after his poor mechanic never got paid in GTA.

The rifled shotgun barrel making standard shot more accurate makes me giggle.

I cooked and ate every herbivore in the heartlands.  Still underweight.

Crew/friends showing up as pink dots like everything else is annoying.  Basically you've got to be in a posse together just to see who's who.

Somehow if you lasso another player, drag em across the map then pull em through a river till they drown, you don't get the kill.  I guess that counts as natural causes in Red Dead world.

Stout, trying to act like at adult and block yourself from watching porn on the Xbox or something?

Spaghetti and meatballs.  I bet they have matching sweaters that say that or some shit.  

Had a good time making money hunting in the swamps.  Bagged a whole bunch of gators. Didn't realize they came in different sizes.  Also didn't know there were herons and snapping turtles in the game.  Bagged a few of each.  And I shot my first bass.  Then I found a second one that had just washed up for some reason.

Spaghetti and meatballs? Given how we are with player names, I'm gonna assume y'all fought people named Spartacus and Metropolis.

And Robert, you have no idea how much I want to see what your character looks like. I laugh every time I read "Reba meth addict."

Be prepared for me to sing Fancy the first time we get to play together. Either that or "That's the night that the lights went out in Saint Denis."

I'm gonna be disappointed if y'all tell me those were from Eminem lyrics.  I was really picturing them as a middle aged couple that things wearing cheesy matching sweaters is endearing.  I've heard one Eminem song in my lifetime.  Two if Forgot about Dre counts.  I have heard melraz do a pretty good Nate Dogg, though.

Reba's lookin rough.  Looks like she's down to about 90 pounds, despite eating about 10000 calories of meat per day.  Getting her head bashed into the side of a post last night probably didn't help.

I've worked out a pretty good system of shooting alligators in the head along with whatever else is wandering the swamps.  Made more than $200 yesterday just doing that.  Alligators are easy one shot kills with the bolt action rifle, and you'll usually get at least a good pelt out of it, and a bunch of meat and teeth.  Got $10 from a perfect deer carcass, along with about $3 from the pelt, which didn't hurt.  

Kinda felt bad about shooting endangered species, but I did it anyway.  Bagged a couple condors and a whooping crane.

melraz's horses suck worse than mine.  At least mine sticks around.  His horse runs off, and won't come back, if you even think about shooting a gun.  And his scrawny nag won't let you sell the pelts on its back.  The nag is still faster than my shitty horse, though.

Found out you can steal boats, at least the little ones.  Also found out that if you shoot the lantern on a rowboat out while you're sitting in it, you tend to catch on fire.  The high pitched screaming was hilarious.  Didn't kill me.  Being hog tied and thrown off a boat did, though.  Quickly.

Melraz got a treasure map looting a random dead skinner.  Got like a hundred dollars and some gold out of it.  Fucker.

Holy shit yeah good times. If y'all want to piss off a whole lot of NPC go to Braithwaite manor and have fun. 

Robert and I spent most of the night just farting around. It was good times. I think next time we're gonna try to derail the train. 

Yeah I don't know 1 eminem song. It was actually 2 names. I'm with Robert, I pictured an old married couple sitting side by side with matching shirts, greasy ass unshampooed hair, Cheetos covering their face and hands and giving each other a kiss when they killed somebody and a smack when they got killed. I guess the reason I pictured this is, it's what I long for.

If y'all ever want to bone up on Eminem songs, holler. I know my drawl doesn't scream "likes rap," but I listen to everything under the sun.

And to Robert and Mel, who the shit did y'all play against? It sounds like y'all fought the women from that old SNL skit where Ana Gasteyer and Molly Shannon hosted that radio program. (The most famous of those skits was the Schweaty Balls one with Alec Baldwin - for the uninitiated.)

And Robert - this is the only Eminem "song" you ever need to know.

So I seem to have been hit with an interesting glitch or something.  Left Reba sitting at the fire in my camp for what turned out to be about 5 hours.  When I finally got back to controller, she was still there in the room.  More importantly, I somehow had gained somewhere between $250 and $300 and about 15 gold.  No clue what happened there.

Rockstar gifted us cash and gold after the patch update yesterday. They lowered prices on everything and increased payouts for everything as well.

That's rather nice of em.  Got a fully modded revolver out of that, and still have the gold in reserve.  Wonder what the rebate for the gun sales was.  All I bought beforehand were the pump shotgun and bolt action rifle, plus the accuracy/range mods for both.

The notification came this afternoon, even though the money came yesterday.  Weird.  I also got a $322 rebate for stuff the dropped the prices on.  Turned that into a sniper rifle.  Walked out of the gun store and saw a couple dots a good ways off down the street.  Don't guess they saw it coming.

I don't know what the hell was going on at Braithwaite, but I wanted to raise some hell and loot some bodies after you told me it gets crazy down there, and they just... didn't care. 

I was Goldberg spearing everybody in plain sight of people with guns, beating the shit out of them, and not one person shot at me. Guessing it was a glitch. I beat the hell out of at least eight people, looted the whole mansion, and then rode out past the guards like "Boy, do y'all suck shit at your job."

I can’t believe that you can’t fish from a boat. I managed to find a canoe and wanted to take a relaxing trip to the middle of Flat Iron Lake and catch a bunch of fish for profit, which is really good for the heavy stuff like salmon, bass and trout. I wasted all of that time, and then ended up dying as I tried to make it to Mexico since I was already on the water and now had nothing to do. There’s an auto-kill apparently, like in GTA when you went too far at sea. Because my canoe suddenly sprung a leak, started sinking and my character went into an immediate panic and drowned.

Pretty good day. Layed low, fished and sold a bunch of herbs since I’m routinely low on cash. Also took advantage of the “respawning in a certain spot just for looting” exploit. Went to Braithwaite Manor (it was near two of my fishing spots) to loot some things, then switched sessions and ended up at the house over and over again.

Besides looting, I was inspired by @RUkered up above and just kept spearing the shit out of the guards and locals around the Manor and in Rhodes. It also helped me finally get full dishonor, as I had been a goody two-shoes (unlike in story) since I started online.

Wait, you can't fish from canoes online? Why would they do that?

I had a canoe fill up with water when I went too far south on Flat Iron as well but that was with Morgan in solo dolo play.

Who knows? It’s annoying. Though I’ve never been attacked while fishing, there are times I wanna be isolated on the water just to prevent anything from happening.

I actually had a couple people join me for a few minutes earlier. They didn’t stick around long though, probably because they got bored and realized I wasn’t goofing around and was actually just fishing.
