hey norm, how's the combat controls coming?
Im reading tons of posts seething with hate and others than love it after devoting a ton of time to practice.
I think I read someone say there's even a lawless town with no law or bounty where you can go and just GTA it up until you get used to everything.
Or I guess you could keep creating new saves and/or starting over?

Im still up in the air about this or SM though...

I watched a video the other day, and it does seem like the controls are a little rough out of the gate, but apparently they're very customizable and easy to set to your liking.

I haven't had much issue with the controls so far, if I miss I just kinda assumed I suck lol
Not sure of any town where you can do what you're talking about, at least I haven't seen it yet...I'm about 25% through the story too.

Bought this and a hard drive on Amazon. This worked fine, the hard drive I had to send back because it was DOA. Went to Target and got a 2TB one for just $10 more than the 1 TB I had ordered. Worked fine, moved all of my games to it including Red Dead once it finished installing, but that's all I've gotten to do so far, haha. Haven't played a second yet.

Possibly next week, or I might wait until the beta is officially open, but I will be getting PS Plus so I can play this with my bro online. If you do get it Crewe (and if you have PS Plus, Norm) we should definitely meet up online at some point.

Eh, I'm on Pacific Time so it may match up here and there, haha.

Are you in Chicago only temporarily for work?

Yep...decided to try the travel nurse thing for a bit so the first assignment I took was in a city I'm familiar with. :)

Finally got to the Epilogue on my first playthrough. Going to spend some time finishing that out, once I'm done (and we'll see if I care enough to hunt any of the legendaries I have left, like the Pronghorn you apparently can't get until the Epilogue), I think I'll play through again, except this time as Dishonorable.

I will say, I usually play as good my first playthrough on these types of games (Jedi on KOTOR, Paragon on Mass Effect) because 9 times out of 10, playing evil is the easier of the two. I'm glad I did it this way, because Arthur's story, when honorable, really was amazing, and his journey throughout and his growth as a character was really so well done by Rockstar, it sneaks up on you before going full-out, especially in the final chapter with everything happening.

I know that the cut scenes differ when you're dishonorable, curious to see how much so. In my mind, though, my honorable Arthur will be the one true cowboy, whereas my next Arthur will be, like, Elseworlds Arthur.
