No I got it digital :(
You have had fifty hours out of it :)
I mean there's things I do like about the game, so I wouldn't be selling it anyway

It's just the thing I really really like is this one particular side activity and I kind of hate a lot of the main part.

To save any (more) whining - CEX will give you £40 cash for this, just saying.........

At least he's articulate, so it's ponderous reading.

I love this game. Not like it's amazing 10/10 kinda but I do like what it is. Even when it does dumb stuff like this;

I'm definitely gonna give it a go, I barely played GTA Online because of the awful launch issues so I may wait until a month into the Beta before properly diving in but I'll stick a toe in assuming the servers are stable enough at the end of this month.

Helpful tip 1: During a mission don't bother trying to formulate a strategy using the open world, night day cycle, stealth mechanic etc. The game will show you what to do by a) taking control of your character, b) actually telling you what to do in text (top left of screen), c) providing a helpful yellow mark on your mini map.

Hope that helps.
Is it on the Switch?

Maybe it’s really bad and I haven’t seen it, but I don’t know what the resistance is to curated content. Like when you play a Mario game, everyone plays those levels in near enough the same way (Bar the people who are exceptionally good or exceptionally bad at them)

I’m wondering if the controls are what is making the content not fun to play instead of the content itself being of low quality. Even in my little play time Arthur does noticeably control like a lot of R* protagonists and that is very heavily

I would take a highly specific mission over something like an AC where yes you get to make your own tactics but only because the content is very same-y in terms of design and approach.

Even if the main missions in this are horse riding and shooting I think I will like it as long as it’s made to measure

I WITH HOLD THE RIGHT TO CHANGE MY OPINION AT ANY TIME

The resistance for me is >100 story missions of feeling like you are watching rather than playing

Or something like that, I'm just going off the progress tab number.

It's a very very long game to be feeling like you have no space to move in such a massive world. Excellent world design delimited by suffocating missions

Anyway I know I've dominated the thread like I said I would try not to do so I'll try and change the record. I'm very near the end I think.

I do want to ask one thing though speaking of the day/night cycle. Anyone noticed how the transition from dark to light and vice versa happens a bit quickly. Eg, you can step into a shop during the day, spend a minute and come out and it's night.

The length of the cycle itself is fine but the state changes are very sudden.

Not in game.

Therefore as a compromise for you you can have Bill Williamson.

No way she is the reason I cant play poker there.

Can you kill her? I'll take the bounty just to shut her up.

I’ve no idea, I only recognised her because she was in some TRALIERZ

I also did a debt collecting mission and Arthur said DA TING from the TRALIERZ and a little bit of fizz came out the ol’ Johnson.

I could literally just spend 400 hours going around taking photos of this game and its world.
