    Yeah Witcher and this ruins all other open world games just like dark souls ruins all other games.

    It is a shame that I so rarely replay a campaign much like I rarely re-watch a film, no matter how much I love both.
    Although the strong rumours of story dlc might make me revisit. It was a great game, not perfect but what is other than Pink Floyd and Soundgarden ;)

    In answer to the multiplayer side, still very average, far better experiences to have online.

    Just finished this. Loved it. Athur Morgan's character development was really well done.

    This and The Witcher 3 are the only open world games I like. Tried some of those newer AC games but they're not a patch on this.

    True that. Never got a grasp on the Witcher, guess I'll go and give it another shot soon.

    Also sorry for not letting this thread rest after almost four years.

    I'm tackling the challenges.
    They're a massive grind, but a nice reason to keep doing stuff in the game after the main story.

    Just started playing this, to say it's a tad overwhelming is huge understatement!

    I know there are a load of "beginners guides" online.

    I'm a couple of hours into chapter 2, mainly side missions.

    But, you experts, what is your top starter tip? I'm happy to wander around. But anything which is obvious?

    Online has had a massive boost in the arm with the 3 new jobs and loads of Qol updates. Really loving being back in the world.

    I would stick to the basic story to start with, don't try and do too much, get used to the controls and general traveling around.

    You can't really go wrong, the game does teach you a lot of the 'rules' as you go, as and when you need.

    There's a burnt out building or two not far from camp, go and search the entire building area and see if you can find anything of use in there.

    The advice depends on what kind of game player you are.

    Are you a completionist that gets cheesed off at missing something minor that you canít go back to?

    If I could go back in time and tell myself about the game, I'd have two tips. First, concentrate mainly (but not exclusively) on the main story missions, because certain things become available by doing this.

    Second, I'd recommend not placing too much emphasis on loot later in the game. Once you've got the guns / outfits / camp upgrades that you want don't spend too much time looting bodies etc.

    I felt overwhelmed too for quite a long time at the start. Not because I couldn't get to grips with the game's systems, but because I didn't know what I should really be concentrating on, and what's important.

    Thanks guys. I'm no completionist. But like to get the best out of the game.

    I'll happily bumble along.

    Donít waste a cent on upgrading or donating (too much) to camp. Be greedy.

    Unless they are a cheveo/Trophy Whore, there is one of two based around Camps I think ?

    I just spread my time out. Once I felt I was doing too much on the main storyline I'd double down on hunting and fishing. Exploring the map is fun as there are no real restrictions bar going to Blackwater.

    The game is very linear so you can't really go wrong.

    I bounced off GTA Online when I'd exhausted the mission opportunities, bought exactly one house, one garage and one car, and realised it was high effort diminishing returns to get much of anything else. Came back to it in the past 6 months and I've been having a blast with it, while they've been massively more generous with one-time cash bonuses and increased earnings.

    I'm expecting Red Dead Online to follow the same path... grindy and empty at first, then more generous with more content a bit later on, when it slumps and they have to incentivise people to come back to it.
    Just popping back in to say I've fallen hard for RDR Online- the new Collector, Bounty Hunter and Trader roles are great fun.

    Can't say as I agree with some of the advice for new players up the page.

    1) Unless you just want to get through the game and experience the main story, then definity DO do the side missions and stuff. Many extra characters you speak to give you missions that give you huge rewards money and items. As well as the fact that some of the "side quests" are the most interesting quests in the game, like the serial killer quest. Do spend a lot of time hunting, the upgrades you get are worth it and cook the meat to stash for health recovery later.

    2) Do donate to camp, or at least buy the upgrades for your wagon, Dutch's wagon and the camp, because you get really useful rewards such as a fast travel map.

    Last few hours to order on PC and snag the pre-order bonus. Do I actually want this?

    On the one hand, I've kinda been "got" by the hype around it and I did put off buying it for the XBonks because I thought "meh, wait for the PC version". But I've bounced hard off every Rockstar game since Bully and stuff I've heard about the controls, mission structure and general neverending-waves-of-enemies design probably mean I'll bounce off this one too.

    @Rogueywon the controls are much better on the pc version apparently.

    Other than the shooting I thought it was brilliant for what it's worth. Arthur is one of the best videogame characters of all time.

    It will look ridiculous on PC. It's astonishing on base PS4.

    I've ordered it. I'm a sucker for pretty graphics.

    And I know I'll bounce off it hard after 3-4 hours.

    You could just walk around the landscape pretending to deliver parcels and then tell anyone who says it looks shit that they arent clever enough to understand.

    @Frogofdoom Confirmation via reviews that I would rather gargle with my own diarrhea than buy Death Stranding was a factor in me feeling flush enough to buy Rooty Tooty Cowboy Shooty 2.

    Now I just need to hope Star Wars Fallen Order ends up sucking.
