Why does Ethan look like Ben in the thumbnail?
@howiegaming: Yes! It's like one of those old football/ Nike commercials with Ronaldinho and all.
@thomasonfa: Yeah I've had to resort to watching Youtubers finish games that I know I won't come back to finish. I really want to play more of KC:D though, it reminds me of amazing times I had exploring around in Oblivion when I was younger, and I can't get that by watching someone else play it :)
About the base camp discussion - I absolutely loved returning to the camp in Dragon Age: Origins. It was a really pleasant atmosphere, the music was great and it was a good time to catch up with the crew.
@ntm:Interesting! Saint Denis sounds cool, I'm still in Valentine and the surrounding area. I've been trying to play it in an immersive way too now, and since the the slow controls have stopped bothering me. Agreed about the seriousness too. I actually forget that I can possibly kill NPCs like in GTA, the thought never crosses my mind and if it happened by accident, I'd probably reload. Have fun! :)
@ntm: Yeah I'd love to finish the game too, and I hope I will eventually haha. I too missed out on some small opportunities as well. After chasing that guy in Valentine I was supposed to return the horse I used to its owner, but ended up running over the guy with his horse instead lol. At the time a bunch of opportunities popped up but I never saw those again after reloading. The owner couldn't be found either. You can really miss some things in this game!
Also, it's been a day now since I played it last and I find myself randomly thinking of the game world and wanting to revisit it. That's cool!
In playing the game (99 percent in first person) I find myself taking my sweet time just looking at the world, seeing what people and animals are doing, all the while taking care of my horse. Most modern open world games just don't make me want to do that; it's all run here to do this, run there to do that. RDR may have a checklist of things to do, but it doesn't feel quite like other open world games in that way.
This is exactly what I've been thinking to myself after playing around in the Valentine town for a bit. Running around and playing it the way I usually would is just going to give me a headache and cause me to feel overwhelmed. I feel the right way to play it is to lean back, become a part of the world and forget about ever trying to finish the game or anything. It's like everytime you play the game you're visiting that world. Just slow down and take it all in.
I listen to my first Beastcast after missing the past 8 episodes, and I'm greeted with Cop Alex warning me to not drive when stoned.
03:45 - Alex I love the fart talks
@taaltos: I loved that one :D My favorite though is probably the one where they had the "never stop spinning (Tony) Hawk!" joke or something. I can barely remember it but I remember falling in love with the podcast that day. I think it was a really old one with just JB, Alex and Vinny.
