    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Moving camp makes any side quest and activity from the previous camp impossible to do. Some side quests from a previous chapter may remain if the quest giver is out in the open world, but if the quest starts from camp then it vanishes for good when the camp moves. Also to keep in mind that time only truly advances during main quests. So those activities to go fishing with Javier, or hunting with Charles will vanish if you do too many main quests while that activity is on the map. They will just go and do it by themselves. As for challenges I believe those are persistent throughout the game and can be done at any time, but I haven't focused on them so I'm not 100% sure.

    This game is all over the place for me. If I was to give it a score based solely on scale, scope and detail then it would be a solid 10/10. If I was to add in the less than stellar controls and cookie cutter mission design that serves more as a spoon to feed us narrative? Then I'd give this an 8/10. It's a weird one for me as the game is both phenomenal and good/average at the exact same time.

    Update on my Chapter 5 thoughts..

    Xbox One

    I don't think Microsoft are done with the acquisitions yet either. I'll be surprised if we see anything from their new studios until the E3 when Xbox Scarlett is unveiled. Obsidian and InXile if they start new projects are 2-3 years away from showing anything. Same for The Initiative, Ninja Theory and Compulsion Games. We may see something from Playground Games and Undead Labs in the next year, but those were already practically second party studios when they were bought out. If they had projects in the works they were likely for Xbox anyway. Next-gen will be very very interesting, but we won't see much from these acquisitions for another couple years.

    I followed some of them without help from the Internet which is likely why I am 70 hours in and only 40% completion The biggest one I couldn't figure out was a map that was essentially "find a tree and follow it to another tree" which is real helpful in a game littered with trees. Some of the others I lucked out on either through recognising an area, or just plain dumb luck. I'll likely use the Internet for the rest because the treasure hunts seem to be getting more elaborate.

    I went into Chapter 3 with about $6000 thanks to treasure maps and exploring and now I have like $8400. Chapter 3 definitely seems set up to give all players some cash just in-case they don't have much money by that point in the game. As for your question @PieFacE the item in question will be gone. That said random encounters while random can repeat so there is a chance the scene will play out again.

    Only 10% of the player base beat RDR1 back in the day. I imagine even less than 10% will beat RDR2. The way the game has been designed is such that I am sure Rockstar are thankful if people complete the game, but I feel they just wanted to create a world that kept players invested for 100+ hours. At the rate I am progressing I won't have the story finished by the time Red Dead: Online launches in a week or two.

    You can't. Side missions disappear permanently from the map based on all sorts of in-game triggers. The most common trigger is moving from one chapter to another. Now I am only on chapter 3 right now, but each chapter change thus far has come with the camp moving. If a side mission was designed to leave from the Valentine camp then it will disappear when you move on from there. Though that isn't the only thing that can cause side missions and objectives to vanish. Certain main missions may anger a rival faction enough that a side mission with a person in that faction disappears. The same is true for hunting, fishing and home invasion side activities though for a different reason. Time only really advances by doing a main mission, so provided you don't do a main mission the activities will stay there, but doing a main mission may mean that Javier went fishing by himself so the fishing activity goes away. Now if it's any consolation I don't think the side missions are required to get a 100% completion.

    Yeah unless someone compiles a list of camp members that we're supposed to have then I can imagine no one will truly know who is missing.

    I normally wouldn't advocate such things, but for those that want to nullify the convoluted bounty system it might be worth it. I won't be doing it as I already have close to $7000 organically via exploring and hunting, but I wouldn't begrudge anyone for financing their future rampages with an exploit.

    It'll click eventually. There are like 100 controls for everything Arthur can do which is awkward, but it offers a flexibility in the end that no other game aside from a mil-sim on PC can.

    WWE: General Chat

    Lynch vs Flair was phenomenal and it should have been the main event. The event itself was solid. The event had an NXT vibe to it which I think WWE would do well to incorporate across the whole product at this point. It was one the best PPV's of the year by far.

    The more you play the more that system makes sense. Most of the more "advanced" crafting items are impossible to get without needing several trips to the vendor. I think once I grabbed my first pelt that couldn't fit into my satchel the system clicked for me.
