  1. I was worried this was going to be mired in overarching plot, and it totally was. It lost all the magic of the first for me. The story was needlessly convoluted, and characters change their motivations on a whim. It was also badly edited- there’s a scene where one character just disappears, only to appear at the end with no-one commenting on it. EDIT: Just a couple of other things, on reflection. It totally wastes the Paris setting, with hardly anything memorable- it could have taken place anywhere, instead of giving us what could have been an interesting take on that time period, with added magic. Humour is absent from almost the whole movie, which is a shame since the first had some lovely humourous touches. The whole thing is dark for little reason. There’s also very little action. The movie manages to get bogged down in plot whilst actually achieving very little, and feels like a bridging movie rather than anything of individual merit. Loads of characters are introduced, yet do very little- I’m sure they’ll have a big part to play in the further movies to come, but they do very little in this one, and just take up screen time which could have been given to the characters you actually want to see.

    I don’t think it -is- working, that’s the problem. The gun bug is making the game hugely less enjoyable for me- I know I’m about to start a mission, so I make sure I’ve got two guns selected in the two extra slots. The mission starts, and bam, I’ve got the carbine equipped, and one empty slot. What’s the point in unlocking new weapons if the game keeps randomly changing my loadout??

    Anyone having trouble with custom outfits? They seem to change to what I’m wearing now and override what I’ve saved, and one of mine just now defaulted to having a mask on? Seems to be a similar bug to the weapons.
  4. Really? Wow, totally missed that then- I’d been keeping an eye out on Eurogamer but nothing on there. There still don’t seem to have even acknowledged the gun loadout issue though, let alone word of a patch.
  5. No word at all on any fix, only that they know it’s down to people restarting from a checkpoint on that mission, rather than opting to do the whole thing from the beginning. I think as long as you do that, you’re fine. I left it til I’d done around 4-5 missions in the chapter before attempting it (rather than it being the first one like last time), and it was fine. I’d manually save before and after it though, just to be sure, and obviously check the 4 effected camp members are there after the mission. The fact they haven’t commented that a patch is coming suggests to me that they’re not sure they can fix it easily (if at all), so I wouldn’t wait. They’ve really handled the whole post launch feedback thing poorly IMO- it’s been out for two weeks and no comment at all about any patch. The system to equip guns is totally and utterly bugged to the hilt. You choose what you want on your horse, then when you get off, it’s total luck whether your other non-pistol slots stay equipped, whether you just have one of them, or none of them. Even changing guns standing by your horse or equipping a load out at the gun shop makes no difference- eventually your loadout randomly changes. There’s no way reviewers didn’t notice this, but did any actually comment on it? I find it hard to understand how they got so many little details right, but couldn’t get a basic system like that working in time for release. I’m guessing it must have worked at some stage, but somehow all the other systems working together with it caused it to break. Still, it’s a very, very fundamental thing to have in a broken state in a game of this kind.
  6. Really? That’s good news then- I’ve been deliberating starting again, even though I’ve spent a fair amount hunting, and think I’ll do it then if that’s the case.
  7. The bug has really kinda killed my enthusiasm for the game to be honest- if this bug can happen so early on, even if I can be bothered to restart after about 10 hours of game time, it makes me wonder what other pretty big bugs will occur further in
  8. I’m pissed because I had to restart from a checkpoint because of another bug- I just walked into the hotel, screen goes black and tells me that I’ve failed because the law have been alerted, and that was it.

    Anyone have a bug with the guy running a sheep farm just east of twin stack pass? I ride past, he says ‘I need to talk to you’, so I go up to him, then he starts threatening me for being in his property, ending up in shooting at me. The game gives me no way to respond to him, and I’ve had to kill him both times (he respawns it seems), and both times exactly the same thing happened :/ Definitely seems like all this extra work Rockstar put in could have been handled better through management so people were working smarter rather than just longer.

    Ahh ok, thanks. I’m only level 4 deadeye I think so obviously haven’t unlocked it yet then. It’s confusing because the in-game manual doesn’t seem to make any reference to automatic targeting, only using RB, which is a bit crap when you don’t have that to begin with.

    Does anyone know what the difference is in deadeye if using RB to shoot? I’ve been moving the target over guys in deadeye slowdown and marking the spots I want to shoot at automatically, and then pressing the trigger to shoot once I’ve highlighted them. But the in-game instructions mention nothing of this kind of automatic mode, and say press RB. What’s the difference? I’m not sure how I could press RB manually, since as soon as I move over one of the critical spots, it automatically registers that I want to hit it when I press the trigger.

    What the hell?? I’ve spent ages hunting and increasing deadeye levels- there’s no way I’m starting again. That’s a horrendous bug. Hope they’re working on a fix!

    I’ve never seen them in the horseshoe overlook camp- I assumed they weren’t supposed to be there, should they be then?

    Anyone still have the doctor’s shop robbery in Valentine on their task list even after doing it? Not sure if it’s a bug, or I didn’t get all the loot or something, but it’s still there for some reason.

    Two kids though? So they’ve already made a pretty big change then :/ EDIT: there are two kids in the book! Shows you how long it’s been since I’ve read it lol
