    Recommend me 'git gud' games!

    Sure it does, once you work out how to make use of your invincibility frames in real life.

    You got that for completing the Badlands punch card. US only all that stuff at the moment as well, hopefully it'll filter down to the rest of us at some point.

    You can use it how you like, once you open up manual tagging (which I got in chapter 2, oil mission 3 very recently and it's made combat hugely more enjoyable) it's arguably better to drop in and out to conserve it or move more quickly to another group of targets at times rather than queueing up a bunch of shots. I've spent so many hours dicking about I do wish I'd have progressed through the story sooner if only to open up skills and abilities that would have helped with my general dicking about. I've only just learnt to fish, which is something I could have done with knowing aaaaaages ago.

    The fade was the worst haircut I went for, far too harsh under the hat. Also it's the only haircut, as it's taking that fucking long to grow back I daren't go near the barber again.

    I was using my Repeater with express rounds, they do go down with one shot. Maybe the express is too much? Currently no poison to try, that's my usual go-to but I need oleander sage (or anything else that's poisonous, as the oleander seems fairly rare and I don't know where to get more).

    Was just trotting South of Rhodes at Braithwaite Manor. One of the guys didn't like that so I galloped on down the road before he started shooting only to find the lot aggroed as I went through the gate. Decided to just high tail it, except my horse wandered near a vine and tripped us. Plenty of time to leave still. Horse got up after an absolute age, I got back on, stuck on the vine, flipped us both off again. Horse then needed reviving and I got killed in the midst of doing so. Respawned, horse gone. Full affinity beauty I spent ages getting from up in the North West somewhere. FUCK.

    Yeah, I know it's a 3* hide before I kill it, just can't find a way of buffalo not dropping to 1* on the kill. I don't even know what I want one for anyway to be honest.

    How do you get a perfect Buffalo hide? Even sneaking in, using the recommended weapon, hitting them right in the red deadeye spot every single time it was 3* straight down to 1*. Corpses everywhere it was a real mess by the time I gave up. I didn't try poison arrows because I'm out. Speaking of which, where's a reliable place to get oleander sage?

    Loved the "chugging cold baked beans" line I lost a whole bunch of perfect pelts earlier myself, man that hurts when it happens.

    Yeah, right on the X on the map which looked to be the right place. I did wander a way beyond there though (right up top, then down the other side) so if anything showed up when I had my back turned I won't be amused! Saw all that, but not the markings on the circle round the stone. I'm going back again, I need to go to the nearby town anyway. Nearby there's also a But whether that ties in to it all who knows.

    Huh, now I've checked so do I, that's definitely a recent addition to my deadeye skill. Think I'd read it was all story based somewhere like there https://www.vg247.com/2018/11/06/red-dead-redemption-2-dead-eye-level-up-auto-target/ but maybe it's a mix of the two. I can't do some of those bits (don't think I can manual tag) but I am at Deadeye level 5 and I can see the organs and all that now.

    That does appear to be about it. I can see why people say there's a lot to do outside of the main storyline but the vast majority of it is as you describe above, all of which doesn't really have much depth to it and it's either that or make your own adventure for the most part. The wildlife photographer was a case in point, I encountered him elsewhere and while it was interesting having a little chat the event was chase after something for 30 seconds (slightly different to yours, but it was a different location), and on return I was excitedly wondering what was next, maybe being tasked with some sort of big game picture hunt. But that was it, although there's a suggestion we'll meet again so maybe it'll change. So there's quite often stuff to do, but there's really not much to it for the most part. Even just now I came across a logging camp, where the sole outcome was that I could flog them some medicine if I happen to feel like it and it's a bit deflating. I was almost hoping they'd at least give me some shitty fetch or delivery quest. Maps I've picked up seem very much to be a case of "if you wander over this tiny part of the map you might recognise the spot" where I was hoping there'd be people you could ask or question, or hear more about people talking hushed tones about them but it doesn't seem to be the case. Exceptions so far would be the Gunslinger quest and there was something that started over by Van Horn that was an amusing distraction but I can't think of much else of note. I guess it's more about the world going on around you rather than there being an epic bunch of threaded plotlines and quests round every corner, but I've spent the vast amount of my time enjoying that so far anyway. Would like a little more meat on them bones, though.

    That's one fucking weird TV mounting.

    My Arthur froze his bollocks off up there with his sleeves rolled up for hours and nothing showed up Terrible weather though.

    Keep opening the map as you traverse about, without it it's incredibly easy to miss stranger missions. They're not overly frequent (location based?) or even that meaty but you usually wouldn't even know they were there if you didn't happen to open the map at the right time. I've got a couple of bits going on, serial killer map, a poison trail map, panoramic map all of which are fairly obtuse rather than setting you right off for adventure. But yeah there's not a great deal even so, a lot of it is just a little local flavour like the odd preacher you mentioned. The amount of non-interaction with all the dotted abandoned buildings and so on is especially disappointing, best you might get is a hint that something might have happened there once.
