Well, I didn't expect the disc to take over an hour to install..

I've only just got going with the game but the cinematic mode when travelling is a neat addition and adds to the ambience of the game. I'm not sure how much I'll use first person mode though; I completed single player in GTA5 with it (having played the campaign before on PS3) but still feel these are best in third person.

@Thrillho I found first person mode to make hunting a lot easier so far. That's where I used it for.

@hulkie Pull up the weapon select, then press R1/R2 to go to the items menu and select the mask. Should work...

For those playing on a standard PS4: what about performance? I prefer to wait some days and play once they fixed glithces and improved fps...

@andreoni79 They're on 1.02 at the moment and I'm playing on an old base model PS4 with no problems in the early game.

I'm only just into chapter 2 but first impressions are pretty good. I'm not so sure about this whole having to eat etc in order to maintain stats as it feels like it's going to be a chore more than anything already. Being forced to walk at a snails pace around camp is also quite frustrating.

I've spent most of my time in chapter two just tracking and hunting animals so far though.

I decided to hold off on buying this game for a while, but one day was all I could wait. I just felt like I really needed to play this game ASAP. I just got it and I'm so glad that it does indeed come with two discs, instead of being forced to download half of the game. Looking forward to delving into it later today.

@andreoni79 I only managed to play about an hour last night, because we decided to finish watching The Haunting At Hill House first. Nothing against that show, but that final episode felt like a long, long hour. no glitches to report. Played the first two missions and then wandered about in the snow like an idiot for a bit.

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

One of my bigger concerns going in unfortunately holds up. The game clock is way too fast for what the game's trying to do. You can walk into the general store in the morning, have a browse through the excellently in depth catalogue and by the time you're finished it's night time, or maybe even the next morning. That's just ridiculous and completely ruins some of the immersion for me. I really don't understand why they haven't fixed that or at least added an option to change it depending on your play style.

Look, I love the game and there's no doubt I'm gonna spend dozens of hours in it so it can't be that bad but there's a ton of annoyances that I feel could've been avoided.

I think it's all the more frustrating because this game is so close to being as perfect as I'd hoped, there's just a lot of little things holding it back.

Welp, pretty boring thus far. This game is definitely going to be a slow burn; a lot of exceptional moments bogged down by a lot of untrimmed fat.

This control system is proper bone. A game of this calibre should not be sufferings issues like these.

I've been reading a few comments on Reddit that say the colours are washed out because of faulty HDR implementation and that the game looks much better with it switched off. Has anybody tried this? I can't see an option to toggle HDR in the game anywhere.

@LN78 Most games with HDR implementation rely on the PS4's own output settings. On your PS4's home screen, go to Settings - Sound and Screen - Video Output Settings and set HDR from 'Automatic' to 'Off' (you often have to close any applications that are running before doing this, but I may be mistaken in that).

The only time I can remember seeing an HDR setting in-game was Horizon: Zero Dawn. It's certainly a very rare thing to find in individual games.

And yeah, it can often make a game feel a bit "washed out" if not done properly.

Loads of games have HDR on/off switches in the settings. RDR2 has it in the settings under Display right at the top.

@RogerRoger Cheers. I think there's an HDR toggle in the Naughty Dog games as well. I wouldn't have thought about it had I not seen the comments on Reddit. The game looks fine to me-very naturalistic in its colour pallette and lighting. Fabulous game BTW. It's just a bigger,shiner version of the original.Don't be too concerned about the "oppressive tone" because as far as I can tell it just isn't there. At least so far.I saw your debate on censorship.I spent hours arguing with that guy the other week,making all the same points as you and he wouldn't give an inch so I wouldn't waste any more of your time if I were you. Thanks for your help with the settings. I'll give it a try after lunch.

@kyleforrester87 I think that's just an increment slider. It doesn't switch it off. The HDR indicator on my TV stays on,even if the number is set to zero. As @RogerRoger says I think it has to be disabled on the system settings.

@LN78 Most of the issues with 'washed out' HDR comes from the PS4 Pro settings and in particular, the RGB setting. Washed Out is a result of a miss-match between Full and Limited RGB. A lot of TV's only offer limited RGB as TV, Blurays etc are all using Limited but Games and PC's can offer Full RGB as do monitors and some TV's. The Pro too can output in both limited and full but there seems to be some issue with having this set to 'Auto' on the Pro. It seems to restrict the games to Limited but tell the TV its sending 'Full'. The way around this is to set this manually on both the TV and Pro (if you can). It doesn't really matter if you set it to full or limited but its most important to set both to the same value. Uf you set one to full and the other to limited, you will get washed out colours and/or crushed blacks. It maybe better to set it to limited if you also use your Pro to watch HDR on Netflix or whatever other App offers HDR TV/Movie content.

Most games these days have some form of HDR setting built in. One of the best is GTSport (according to DF as I don't own the game myself) but that game was also built to work with TV's that could be 10000nits (the target for HDR). I believe RDR2 has quite a basic slider option for setting the level. Its quite important for games to have an option to adjust settings as the performance of HDR TV's vary a LOT. There are some HDR TV's that only offer around 300nits and don't even offer the Wider Colour Gamut and others that offer 2000nits and 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut (wider than REC709 - the standard for SDR but not as wide as REC2020 which is the target for the future).

These sliders tend to be a lot like we have seen in games before for setting brightness and dark levels - a white logo on a white background or black logo on black background and these logo's go 'grey' if not set quite right. The idea is that you adjust the slider until the logo is barely visible which, if you are in a HDR setting on your TV, generally means your TV is set at the brightest it can be.

To access the settings on RDR2, go to the Main menu and then select Settings > Display > HDR Calibration. Adjust according to taste - They recommend 300 for OLEDs and 100 for LED's but OLEDs are pretty consistently between 600-750nits and LED's can vary from 300-2000nits so if you own an LED, you may need to adjust this depending on the 'quality' of your LED TV.

Anyway, hope that helps...

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

Feel free to add me but please send a message so I know where you know me from...
