  1. I agree with you, and it's sad. If they ever roll out deathmatches, gang hideouts, and poker (or hell, just one of the above), I'll probably check it out - but like you said, I haven't felt the desire to go back once they screwed up hunting. That was barely keeping me signing on as it was. Getting to play with you guys was the main thing. Robert already knows because he, Melraz, and I have been playing Borderlands 2. Mel and I played that on PS3 ages ago, and played it a long damn time. My point is that's how screwed up RDRO is. We went out and bought something we already owned on an
  2. I hopped on the other night just to see the brokenness for myself. Had the exact experience I read about. Still no NPCs or animals. Horse wouldn't come when I called it. There was a pile of pink dots in Tumbleweed, so I rode over to check out what was going on. They were having a fight club meeting, apparently. I guess when there's literally nothing to do, beating the shit out of each other is all you have left. It was shockingly organized for a group of randoms. In very atypical Horsemen fashion, I considered and then decided against lobbing a stick of dynamite in the middle of them
  3. I stumbled upon Shady Belle by accident the other day and absolutely got my ass whipped, although I did get the "shoot 7 enemies from horseback" out of it.
  4. Thanks for the heads up. Saw your post and then followed the advice. Bagged a wild boar first (which I'd recommend to anyone else since they're damn near as prevalent as deer.) Then I walked around until I caught a buck. Pretty easy actually. Then for the "shoot 9 predators from horseback," I headed straight to Lagras. Goodbye, gators everywhere.
  5. If you decide to try the area I mentioned, I highly recommend sleeping as much as possible in between cougar kills. Or, just bag one and then go do something fun instead of frustrating yourself like I did by being stubborn and finishing the whole challenge before moving on. My next one is to kill something with herbivore bait and predator bait. I'm dreading it because I hate bait.
  6. I finally gave in and started attempting the challenges. I don't know if I have the patience to do them all, but it's kind of fun. Although galloping endlessly up and down the road near the trapper on the west side of the map and setting up camp to sleep in an effort to get cougars to spawn sucks ass.
  7. Jesus. For any Idiocracy fans in this thread, the first thing I thought of when I saw that picture was, "Welcome to Costco. I love you." Robert - coworker of mine moved from my office back down to Houston a few years ago. When Hurricane Harvey hit, he was sending us pictures of alligators in his neighborhood, and he doesn't live out in the boonies either. Not sure if the pelts were perfect or not. As far as online, I saw plenty of people complaining about no animals spawning, so it wasn't just a fluke the other day. Something is seriously busted. I guess I'll just stick to singl
  8. The hell is a Buc-ees? Sounds like Sheetz on steroids. Me and Mel loaded into three or four different rooms and he ain't kidding. Not a single animal anywhere. If hunting is busted, there really is nothing to do. Found out one thing that made me laugh. I had never been to see what the Old Man Jones icon was all about. Turns out he can raise my honor for the low, low price of three gold. Fuck outta here, Rockstar.
  9. Same here. I only hop online if y'all are playing. I just want gang hideouts and poker like the first game. Or, and Mel can tell you, some kind of zombie overrun mode so I can pass out two rounds in and get about four kills while he cleans house.
  10. Just finished my second playthrough. I skipped the credits the first time, but decided to sit through them this time after y'all talked about it showing what happens to some of the characters. Holy shit - how long can credits be? I feel like I've been sitting here for 20 minutes and they're still going. Sam Jackson better show up at the end and tell me he's assembling a team.
  11. So this is most likely obvious to everyone in the thread, but I'll post it in case anyone is as brick thick as my dumbass. I wanted to finish my second run with low honor to see a different ending and was having a ton of trouble getting and keeping it low. All shooting up towns did for me is barely put a dent in my honor while racking up insane bounties. At one point, I had $2k in bounties - most of it in Saint Denis alone. Anyway, on to the "no shit, Sherlock" part of the post. I just killed NPCs on back roads going from mission to mission. If you kill them, kill their horse, a
  12. I meant to tell you that I saw somebody online talking about using the companion app. I have it, but I haven't used it yet. Apparently you can have it running on a phone/tablet and you can see the full map while you're playing. I'm sure it would be annoying to have to glance over at it all the time, but it might be a solution when you're looking through a scope or fishing and can't see shit.
  13. Even though Swag got me a few times, he was hilarious. After Robert and Mel wore his ass out, he parleyed both of them and, for some reason, never bothered to do it with me. The fact that Robert and Mel kept running him over with horses and knocking him down gave me plenty of chances to put him down until I was completely out of shotgun and varmint rifle ammo. Then, he vanished into thin air. I guess another room looked like greener pastures at that point. We had actually been playing nice with several pink dots all day up until that point. Everyone was just minding their own bu
  14. I'm really thankful I'm not a 100% completionist because I despise hunting. I'm not saying it's a shitty game mechanic; it's extremely well done. I just personally hate the time it takes. I bet I spent an hour and a half looking for a perfect cougar pelt to finish crafting satchels. Finally gave up to try a new area and blew right by one on my way out of the woods in West Elizabeth. Maddening. I thought I was using predator bait wrong because nothing ever showed up for me. People online were like, "It won't spawn animals. It just attracts what's nearby." Well ain't that about as useful as
  15. By this logic, shouldn't they sue HBO for including them in Deadwood? Idiots.
  16. Now I'm regretting not naming my character Uncle Si.
  17. So scratch what I said about in-game morals. I decided to go full heel. Captured the bounty where the guy asks if he can say goodbye to his wife and son first. Not only did I decline that, I hogtied him and shot his wife in front of their son. I feel like I need a shower now. Edit: And I didn't even take a hit in honor for it??? Damn it.
  18. I hope you have better luck than me. That was my plan on the second run and I haven't been able to keep mine lower than the middle. I can't help but pocket the "good option" when presented with a choice, but I have no problems shooting up towns other than the expensive bounties. Apparently my in-game morals are strange. If I can get my honor low enough and the game still gives me the option, I'm gonna have a really hard time choosing the money over helping John at the end, but I want to see the different ending.
  19. I have paused story progression to try and get perfect pelts to upgrade my satchels. Apparently I am going to have a hell of a time bagging a panther. I looked up the locations of where they supposedly spawn. Spent 20 minutes or more at one location just wasting predator bait, so I rode to the other. Finally found one at the second location I tried...via it eating my ass alive twice when it attacked me from behind while I was aiming at the bait. This shit is going to take forever.
  20. If you had written out the house building stuff on paper, I would have thought it was the dumbest minigame ever, but I strangely enjoyed it too. This makes me feel pretty damn young all of a sudden.
  21. Maybe that's why I was irritated with it. Not only did I miss Arthur, but I was like when is this shit gonna end??? We already did the same thing at the end of the first game. Do a bunch of outlaw shit and then "retire" to a life of farm chores.
  22. After getting to participate in the Moose Invitational with Melraz on commentary, I have to say it's better than any activity Rockstar could dream up. And boy did I suck in turn four. Hitting rocks, losing the moose, damn near jumping in the creek. Dick Trickle dropped his load, indeed.
  23. Damn it. I saw you guys were on and thought about switching over, but the wife was asleep and I didn't want to get too rowdy. I always miss the good stuff. Next time we're on, I want to participate. Are there any qualifying rounds like Nascar? If so, I want my handle to be Dick Trickle. (God, I'm as old as my references.)
