@xanadu: I do not believe we really discussed the major beats of RDR 2's story during this stream, especially not the ending. The only ending discussion I recall is a brief reference to RDR 1's ending.

@belowstupid: There's an extremely wide gulf between criticizing a finished (absolutely awful) product--and yes, the choices made by the developers themselves--and getting up on a mic at a fan event and making a dickish comment because they announced a mobile game. I'm well aware that we spend a lot of time making cracks about the industry, but the context here is way different, and the comparison is pretty ridiculous.

Hi everyone. Some people seem very anxious for me to get to Virmire. I am too! But I wanted to make sure I did all the mission cleanup I could do before heading there. Next week we go to the Citadel and do the last handful of side missions. After that, we're heading straight to Virmire. Just wanted to get that out there so people aren't stressing about it next week.

@dizagaox: They put out a game and we covered it. If we had said something positive or flattering about the Saudi shows I could understand being upset, but we didn't. I think Dan and I have said multiple times in the past we think WWE's role in the Saudi propaganda machine is bizarre and gross and just in case we haven't actually said it on record, let me do that here: WWE's role in the Saudi propaganda machine is bizarre and gross.

@steveurkel: At no point did I complain about not being able to upgrade the ship. Like, that is not a complaint I made anywhere. By the time I got to the end of the game I'd nearly gold-tiered every part of the ship. That was not an issue. I upgraded a weapon in the quick look because I wanted to show what that looked like. You're right that I misspoke about dismantling in the QL but I did eventually figure out the dismantling.

@bicycle_repairman: Believe me, I thought about the review process in this. Here's the key difference: Origins' main story was more tightly edited, and the optional content was a lot more optional in terms of leveling and progress. Origins definitely still had its share of bloat, but a lot of that stuff was very skippable and did not feel as ingrained in the overall progression. I was also just a lot more invested in Bayek's story and the small stories around the main quest than I ever was with Odyssey's content. There are decent missions for sure, but they're fewer and further between.

@bb4lake: My understanding is that there are no alt-cuts or anything for this movie. Should be the same everywhere.
