As disheartening as the workplace culture at Rockstar seems to be, I haven't cancelled my pre-order and I don't plan on doing so. I love the games they put out too much to speak with my dollars on this. Crunch culture isn't exclusive to Rockstar, unfortunately: most developers probably use it in some capacity since it's been an accepted practice for decades. It's an industry-wide issue that needs to be fixed. Developers deserve much better treatment than they receive. The sooner they can unionize, the better. But the most likely result of a Red Dead boycott would be a lot of people losing their job, not getting better benefits from their bosses. I'm not sure there is anything we can do from the consumer side of this transaction other than point out the problems and say "This shouldn't be happening".

I really wish this wasn't a prequel, but gameplay-wise this looks fantastic.

@efesell: That's fair, I guess I'm just tired of open world games where numbers fall of dudes when you hit them and you do a bunch of side quests to get better loot and xp. I feel like there was some incentive not to get into swordfights constantly in the first couple Assassin's Creed games, but I could be romanticizing the past a bit.

This game will probably be good, but I miss when these games were more centered around assassinating somebody in a vaguely stealthily manner. All of the changes they've made just make the series more generic to me.

I'll probably play it at some point, but the fact that they don't seem to be using the setting as much more than set dressing feels like a real missed opportunity. They could do something really cool with the conceit if they wanted to.

Great work on this. I love that someone at Square Enix thought "this universe isn't complicated enough, what if we added time travel to the lore?" I understood from a distance that the Kingdom Hearts universe had went crazy, but I didn't realize it was this crazy.

Also having problems with the Roku app. Impossible to access the archive now.

This is starting to look like a real-ass video game now. I really hope this is good!

Really shocked by how unimpressed the crew seems to be about Horizon. That game is absolutely stunning.
