Nice job VedderOA! Should have made the suggestion for everyone to watch "The Long Riders" before launch but Tombstone is one heck of a good movie and the actor's line are historically authentic too. 1 day, 8 hours, and 42 minutes left to go...

Great job to both on the OT! Why o why do I wish my life away wanting to get to the release dates quicker. Going to be an awesome weekend for so many of us.

Are there any online elements? I don’t mean GTAV levels but anything that is likely to destroy the servers tomorrow meaning we can’t log in?

Or them dickheads from lizard squad gonna plan a DDoS or something?

Rockstar Social Club probably will get slammed so stats will probably not be accurate for the first couple weeks. Other than that just crossing my fingers for the weekly PSN outage to occur after the updates have downloaded to my disc based copy.

Can't believe it's almost here. I've pretty much avoided anything about it apart from watching the trailers. It's been sitting locked on my dashboard since Sunday and everytime I put on my PS4 first thing I've done is check the countdown timer. Friday is going to be great.

Blegh, I preordered online. I could have probably gotten it a day early from Saturn and been playing tomorrow evening, like most new titles, but eh. I'd rather own it digitally and play a day later than deal with the inconvenience of a disk.

12 Hours left for me until I got the game. I don‘t know if I will be able to sleep. I am exited like a 6 years old before Christmas Eve.

Nice OP!

That rumor of the two hour disc install....:messenger_pensive:
Ugh. Preordered Xbox disk to get it a few hours before midnight. Already have it preloaded on PS4. Sounds like my disk purchase will not buy me much extra time to play before midnight.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

And yet in the Google Project Stream thread I suggest people would be willing to pay to not have to deal with shit like this, I get told I'm being unreasonable.

do you know if we get the pre-order GTA:O money instantly or after RDR2 launches? i pre-ordered digitally but havent recieved the money yet (also ps4).
From what I gather, it should be handled through Rockstar Social Club, so it should be automatically applied to your online for GTAV when you preorder.

I was hoping it was a code so I could have given it away to someone.

I was curious about this myself but it seemed to appear in my GTA:O account pretty much immediately. I have it preloaded on PS4 too.

EDIT: I am loving some of the memes on reddit. This is great here:

Kinda psyched to see what that app is all about

You got minor cosmetic bonuses with the GTAV one like some different collars for Chop and a custom license plate. I wouldn't be surprised if you can earn some sort of little goody from it.

Hopefully they have the "Wilhelm Scream" in this. They definitely had it in Redemption.

I am sick. When they called to inform me that I could get the game Thursday at 9 PM, I said I may not be able to pick up the game then depending how I feel. Since I know the people there on a personal level, I asked for a favor to take the full pay now, give me the game today, and ring it through then. Understandably, my friend told me he can’t take that risk.
After I said I understand and thanked him for taking the question anyway, he offered to allow me to full pay now and get the game whenever I could after release. .... ummm.

Read Dead Redemption II |OT| Who knew horse testicles had such a crunch
Title prioritizes stallions over mares, which is equine-misogynist. And cultural appropriation of the 100+ hours a week the exploited have poured into da game.

Waiting for the PC version.
Damn it.

Stoked to the play the 2 hours tops at Thursday 9 PM before I have to go to bed for work in the morning. Should be a glorious 2 hours (if my wife doesn't haggle me).

Haven’t played a Rockstar game since San Andreas, so I’m kinda looking forward to this. Probably gonna go to Target at 9 tomorrow night and pick it up.

I haven’t been this hyped for a game since BotW.

But here’s the question - I plan on pre-ordering a digital copy tonight....

Should I get this for my PS4 slim or Xbox one S?
