    I've been waiting so long for this. Guess I'll be waiting another year. But between our loss to Miami, work stress, this dumpster fire of an election (not saying any more about that), wars and rumors of war, I'll gladly take some good news.

    On Thursday, I'll be over here. Watching the trailer over and over and over...

    What a TEASE! No info whatsoever on characters or story. Graphics look amazeballs.

    But I think it's a prequel. Certain characters on the poster greatly resemble the previous RDR's characters. Specifically John Marston, Bill Williamson and Dutch Van Derline. Couple that with the line "Listen to me. When the time comes, you gotta run and don't look back. This is over." and it appears to maybe be the story of Dutch's gang, how it all went bad, and how or why John was left for dead, leading into RDR. We might not be playing as John, but a new character, but it sure seems like where this is headed.

    Time period is close. there's still telegraph and electric. Which for the frontier/west/northern plains suggests not too much earlier than 1890 or thereabouts. Maybe later. Hopefully not after 1906 like the last game.

    Or it could be something completely new. Hopefully, we got more and better info soon.

    Fun Fact: I've literally never liked a single Rockstar game. I know that makes me a loser but what else is new? LOL! Right now I'm just consumed with playing Gears 4. Also Nintendo finally revealed the new system and of course I can't wait for that either. It's a portable home console basically. It's called the Switch but I've nicknamed it the WiiDs. I mean that in the best possible way. 3ds rules and as a Nintendo fanboy I also loved Wii U. So a mix between the two is awesome for me.

    RDR had maybe the best story in any game I ever played.

    When do you guys have time to game anymore? I haven't even turned on my XBone in probably a year and a half. I probably have about 5 unopened games waiting for me to play, but no time to do it. And I don't even have kids. But, I do work 60 hours a week, so maybe that's it.

    Ray, I'm not sure why I even have a TV. Or cable (Fios). Probably the only reason I do is because it's cheaper to have a bundle then to buy internet a la carte.

    I'm glad it's a prequel. Earlier time setting (not by much, but still). And we get Dutch Van der Linde back! I always got a kick out of his voice and delivery. Has a Powers Boothe feel to it.

    Likely we'll see John Marston again too. But he won't be the focus of the story.

    So the voice in the first teaser is the same as the main character in this trailer. His line: "Listen to me boy. When the time comes, you gotta run and don't look back. This is over."

    99.9% sure he's talking to Marston there.

    So this will probaby give us the story of the Van der Linde gang in their glory - the time John Marston still feels nostalgic for... and the eventual downward spiral that led to their break up. And John's getting out.

    I enjoyed the first one. That was pre-marriage and pre-twin children. Not sure when I'll ever get around to this one... :lolol:

    Shut. Up. And. Take. My. Money!



    A good look at John Marston in there too (and possibly the origin of his scars. I always assumed bear attack)

    Looks pretty great, but once I started playing PSVR games, I haven't been able to get myself to play flat screen games since.

    Yes. But first, play the original. You can get it for a song nowadays. To this day, it's my favorite game ever. Then upgrade your Playstation. When you do, let me know. I'll send a friend request your way.

    It's 65 days and counting now. When I took this screenshot, it felt like forever. Starting to feel real now.
