    It's fine -- I just wanted to let everyone know that posting "hey mods" doesn't actually alert the mods to anything.

    It's a big board with lots o' threads -- we don't read/see everything. ;)

    The new trailer was pretty good. It didn't really spoil too much either. Some fans of the original game are worried that the new main character won't live up to John Marston. While that still may be the case, Rockstar has created enough memorable characters for each GTA game, that I trust them to do the same here.

    Oh man, that trailer was just gorgeous. I hope it's like GTAV in that we get to play as multiple characters and that it has heists. I totally want to rob a train by doing an entire series of set up missions.

    The game looks beautiful. I wonder if the story will include Dutch taking in John and Abigail into his gang.

    So glad it's going to be at the end of the year. I hope we get a RDR remaster in the meantime, but either way, this gives me time to get a Switch and play Zelda and Mario over the summer.

    pre-orders are up now on Rockstar's website. A word of warning: the $100 Collector's Box edition does not include the actual game.

    Yes, you read that right.

    That’s surprisingly not uncommon nowadays. I get the rationale behind it though. It’s so people can get the digital version of the game and still get all the perks of the Collector’s Edition. Some of these Collector’s Editions are getting too expensive though. While there were cheaper special editions, both AC: Origins and Middle Earth Shadow of War had collector’s editions north of $400. That’s the cost of a brand new console!

    I'm quite disappointed in Rockstar. I never expected them to lower themselves to Ubisoft levels of dickitude.


    I'll just get whatever edition my Target is selling on its day of release. If it's the Special Edition, cool. If it's only the regular edition, cool.

    Whether digital or physical, you don't get a copy of the game in the RDR2 Collectors Box. You have to buy that separately.

    Yeah, there's foru versions, a regular, a special, a collector's edition, and a collector's box. The box is just full of crap with no copy of the game physical or digital whatsoever. Like I said, that is Ubisoft levels of dickery, which is a path I never thought Rockstar would travel down.

    So I guess this is actually coming from Take Two themselves and not Rockstar. I have no idea why Rockstar is being forced to follow whatever those moronic dumbasses want, as they are Rockstar, they don't need to listen to those pieces of shit. They should relese the game the way they want to. If Take Two doesn't like it, they can let someone else publish Rockstar's multi-million dollar selling games.

    Rockstar has enough weight to say no, it’s shitty but I’m just as annoyed at them as I am Take Two.

    I generally only buy the deluxe versions with some DLC mixed in. So Red Dead 2 for me will only be the middle version around the $75 version.
