Initial impressions of RDR Online are that it takes at least 8-9 hours to get a single gold bar. Just insuring a horse costs 5 bars.

I was worried that the grind and microtransactions of GTAO would affect this game, and it looks like that will be the case. If that's what Rockstar are going to be doing, then I won't even boot up the online mode for this game. It'll just be a waste of time.

See thats the problem with all these MMO type games they milk way too much money. Eh I'm disappointed to hear that RDO is being plagued by this, beside the shitty micro transaction Moony how does it feel compared to say the real game? Speaking of RDR2 have you beat it yet?

I'm still working my way through it, but I am really enjoying it so far! I just wish their was a way to get a horse your looking for easier than waiting for it to spawn or wait till the late game because part of me kinda gets attached my old horse. I'd love to have a horse follow me throughout my journey!

Its also kinda neat seeing the gang interacting before the fall of RDR1 and it makes me want to be able to play it again, but I don't own a PS3 anymore. Sad

My PS+ expired and I won't activate my new one for the sake of seeing if RDRO is actually salvageable or not. Generally I've just seen people saying it's a grind or that there really isn't much to do. You can't do as many things in the world as you can in the single player, and I don't feel enticed to go online to have less to do and be griefed while trying to do whatever there is remaining.

As for the single player, I just got to Chapter 6 this morning. Also you could just buy a horse from a stable, which is what I did. I couldn't be bothered to look for horses and I've only ever actually encountered one wild herd of horses in my entire time playing. Errm

I actually tried it out by activating another free trial for it and I honestly wasn't that impressed. To be fair I like RDR for its story not particularly the wild west set as I prefer messing around in GTA than RDR.

See I wanted to get the best horse possible, but you can't get them until later in the game and it seems like you either have to steal one or buy them and I"m like..."I jsut want it now!" as for the wild horses I found that kind of funny as I seen herds of them all around. Eh

We bought RDR2 for my dad for Christmas, I'll have to borrow it when he's done with it! XD

My favourite part about RDR was Undead Nightmare though, and I'd really love to see them do that for this one too.

Same, I'd adore an Undead Nightmare II. It'd be cool to defend the camp from zombies and upgrade defenses for it and it'd be something that feels fitting to include from the base game.

Yesss! I had a blast with Undead Nightmare xD I actually played that before the original game. There were so many things like finding the horses of the apocalypse or the other 'mythical creatures' that was really fun Grin

I just finished the main story and while good, I feel like RDR1 had a better ending in terms of spectacle and impact.
