Can anyone confirm if the update for Red Dead Online will also affect the single player campaign? For example, will it fix the bug for the disappearing gang members in Ch 2 or the reapawning gold bar glitch?

@Th3solution missing camp bug is confirmed to be fixed. Not sure for other bugs. And HDR is not fixed.

I finally finished chapter 4 last night..

Poor Lenny and Hosea

And with regards to the start of chapter 5...

The whole Guarma part felt really weird and out of place. It reminded me how terrible some of the early weapons were too, having to use the standard revolver and repeater

The game really lost its way story-wise toward the end of chapter 4 for me. Most of the missions became a bit of a blur from that point on. There's a couple of missions that stood out to me late on ('Dear Uncle Tacitus' and 'Icarus and Friends' in particular) but for the most part it became a mess imo.

Should we have a separate topic for Red Dead Online - its very much its own thing - or discuss it here?

Anyway, I just played the Online introduction and, like that of GTA Online, it's pretty good, but a bit too long.

I am interested to hear if people on here would care to meet up once or twice!

I think it's better to make a separate thread. I'll look into rdr2 online but I'm sure I'll play it only if there's a good group of people to play with. I didn't play GTA online because it wasn't really fun doing it alone.

@Kidfried I’ve yet to give it a go as I’m still enjoying single player. Have they announced when it officially won’t be beta? And will progress carry over?

It might just be a clever way of avoiding the nightmare that was the first couple of weeks of GTA Online!

@Thrillho They have come out to say "progress probably carries over, but it might not". I don't know that much about it aside from that.

I'm also still playing single player, but I was just too interested in the differences in online. So far it's been a pretty smooth experience!

I'm in the Shady Belle camp and there's a grey dot (both on map and mini-map) on the second floor of the house, right on my bed, indicating a companion but I can't see anyone. Am I missing something?

@andreoni79 It could be a reward for one of the fetch quests you do for other camp members but haven’t picked up. They stay there (and on your mission log) until you do. Annoyingly I normally have enough dynamite, gun oil etc so can’t pick it up.

@Kidfried I’ve heard mixed but mostly indifferent things so far. But most peopl have had a few instances of just being killed multiple times before they can do anything else as it’s a bit of a sparse experience otherwise.

I’ll probably hold off for a little bit longer.

@Kidfried Yeah I'd be up for that. Probably not until the new year though. I'm hoping to finish the story before Christmas, but time is not on my side, due to work, personal life and general festivities.

So it's looking like after xmas when I finally get stuck into online. I might have a look out of curiosity though!

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@Thrillho Oh, thanks. I forgot about those rewards! I even tried to climb the balcony to see if Uncle or the reverend were collapsed up in the attic...

I've hit level 10 in Red Dead Online and apart from a few hiccups, most of my numerous hours on it have been relatively smooth. I've been killed about six times but only by bears and cougars while the real pests seem to be getting on with their own thing. It's actually been surprisingly civilised.

Unfortunately, it does seem like it will be a proper grind just to make some money but I'm just playing it exactly like I played the story mode, ignoring missions and going off to hunt and forage.

I haven’t ventured into RD Online yet, still working through the single player story. After a rough week, I finally was able to sink several hours into it today. I’m pretty far into Ch 3 at this point and what struck me today was how the game seems to be inspired by the Yakuza games. Now let me explain ... I realize the gameplay is nothing like Yakuza, but whole lovable tough guy protagonist of Arthur and Kiryu is a trope very much the cut from the same cloth. And just the way Arthur goes from one mission or side quest to the next, getting caught up in these crazy people’s problems and even though he is a outlaw, he has the soft heart and let’s himself get pulled in. I just finished the part where he helps the suffragettes and also the traveling cross-dressing British circus performer. It’s not quite Yakuza level of silliness but there are some pretty funny quests and situations, as well as dialogue. I could just image Arthur saying “Nani?” as these people ask him for the most bizarre forms of help. 😂 The flow of the game is also very similar. How you’re trying to go from point A to point B and NPCs just completely disrupt your progress to take you on an unplanned wild goose chase.
I am getting a bit fatigued with the pacing, though. It is a fun game, but at this point, I’m just running past and ignoring strangers who ask me for help on the road because I need to make some progress.

The other thing I noted today was just how solid the voice acting is. It’s simply fantastic.

@Th3solution I made Yakuza comparisons to this game to so good insight from you there.

The pace picks up from mid chapter 4, with chapter 5 quite linear. I’m just into chapter 6 now but faffing with challenges (currently playing poker around the map).

Th3solution

@Thrillho That’s encouraging that the pace picks up. The large world and mediocre fast travel make it a little bit cumbersome working through the game. I realize the whole point of the game is to have all these wonderful random encounters while riding through beautiful vistas, all the while leveling up your bond with your horse and improving your stats while you explore... but it takes so long to journey to and fro. I have started just using the stagecoaches more and that helps some, but it does cost money. The fast travel from camp is nice, but it’s only one way. I preferred the options to fast travel from a tent/campfire in the first game.

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

Thrillho

@Th3solution I’ve not used stagecoaches much but use the train for long distances. Money hasn’t been an issue for me as I did the treasure hunts early on (with help from online guides) which has left me with more gold bars than I know what to do with!

I seem to have lost momentum with this game, partly due to a busy few days and partly due to the distraction of online. Need to get back into the story, starting on Monday.

I dabbled in online, but I'm not 100% happy with my character. I didn't get much further than the first cut-scene. To make matters worse, my wife started online and made an excellent cowgirl, now I have Avatar Envy.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@Gremio108 Is it possible to make a good looking avatar? I watched some gameplays on YouTube and the a lot of faces looked kinda ugly, tbh.

Huntin' monsters erryday.
