    Tempted to get RDR2 for PS4 but I haven't even touched that console in so long. I think I'll just wait for it to eventually come out for PC, I think I bought GTA V 3 times (360, PS4 and PC?) versions, rather not do that this time around lol

    If you own a PS4 do yourself a favor and keep a eye out for the Xmas sales and pick it up!

    A good game is a good game, platform shouldn’t matter.

    Can you imagine if someone said a film was not worth watching because it only available on Netflix and never came out at the cinema, you would think they are retarded.

    Same, friend told to just buy a ps4 for rdr2.

    Almost tempted to do it but $500 just to play one game (but probably others later on) seemed a bit much when I have like 8 grand tied up in a pc

    the OG Red Dead Redemption and also stuff like GTA5 pulled me into buying a console (after a long time away from consoles) in the first place.

    You are missing out on a lot just sticking to PC. The best games this year released on PS4.

    Sadly, it's ONLY the SBQ that gives me the shits in terms of loot drop. Normal ledgies (including Deathclaws) and even non-ledgie NOTDRAGONS, always give me decent loot, but the SBQ? For all the ammo and stims and time and effort and organization it takes to take it down? Shitty plans and shitty loot, if the server allows me to loot the damned thing in the first place.

    A hefty list of bug fixes in the 11th patch...... lol

    Who is running ultra preset at 1440p or above?

    And if you are, what is the average and then max FPS you are getting in open world?

    No matter what with my 1080Ti I cannot get past 37FPS....

    DF have an update on the state of the game if you're only getting 37fps then i'd be having a good look at your options. (1080p on a GTX 1060) so pretty middle of the road.

    I don't have a current gen console but I watched an entire playthrough of zero dawn, was amazing. I've been really tempted to get a console just to play RDR and RDR2 as well.

    Poor ultra-wide 21:9 monitors users, the official "patch" from Bethesda to fix it a month after release - only edits the ini file (like people already resorting to) and still breaks/stretches everything in the engine.
    More apathy from Bethesda, even after all the negative press.

    Apparently there is an un-official user mod patch out there that does fix it (even more embarrassment for Bethesda)

    as long as they are making money they don't care, so i guess we'll find out when they do financials or something.

    ultrawide is so niche.

    I did same for GTA 5, but only finished game on PC.

    I am lovin it on ps4 even though my aim blows (dead eye saves you). Ill probably finish RDR2 on PC but ill keep at it for a while on ps4 pro.

    I've said it one and I'll say it again

    They should consider them selves lucky they have a nodding community willing to sort out their tech issues for them, same with programs like flawless widescreen

    Could be right, but that's pretty standard Reddit there. Nu-Tumblr.

    Gift that keeps on giving.
    Have we all purchased our $40 worth of Atoms - sorry, USD$40... dunno what that currently equates to in the rocks-and-bits-of-old-bone currency that we use down here - so we can grab all the sweet Xmas-themed swag from the Atomic store?



    (I get the impression that old mate Yong is still pretty pissed about the whole "nylon bag with his Power Armour edition" thing...)

    That "fake sale price" scam is shady as fuck though, like actual "serious threat of legal action that will actually stick" shady.
    Fun times at the Bethesda offices!
