    what if John Marston and the gang are the antagonists not the protagonist or if they put in the switch person thing from GTA and you are other members as well

    Uber and Lyft do background checks. Austin wanted them to conduct fingerprint background checks.

    As much as I'll enjoy running around in RDR2, it'll be a rental. Rockstar is great at world building, but sucks at so much else that they won't get any more of my money.

    Cher Ami & Sergeant Stubby are both on display in The Smithsonian together. The more you know.

    Final Fantasy X-2 is actually a pretty decent name, considering that the series is an anthology series with Final Fantasy XI being unrelated to X, so they needed another way of indicating that X-2 is now a direct sequel to X instead.


    The numbering of the HD remasters for Kingdom Hearts isn't exactly rocket science either. 1.5 is the original game and the games released between it and KH II. 2.5 is KH II and the games released between it and KH III. 2.8 is then a new addition and a prologue to KH III. If that is still too complex for some, just start with the smallest number and go forth from that. Like with any series. Other games in the series with numbers in their titles are not referencing their place in the series but are instead just done in the context of the games' stories (like The Walking Dead: 400 Days and so on).

      Or Dragon Age:Origins -> Dragon Age 2 -> Dragon Age Inquisition, for whatever reason only one of three games, that all play in the same universe, in a strict chronological order and you influence the sequels, has a number

    Why has every episode of every RT podcast become "And Featuring Special Guest, X"? Guests are fine, but it seems like all the podcasts I've seen recently feature people that aren't the main personalities.

      I'd rather guests over empty seats tbh.

      A few of them are doing that until Gus gets back.

    What if the story of Red Dead Redemption 2 is becoming part of Marston's gang? The possible danger being a) Did you make it and b) Did you make it but the reason you don't show up in RDR1 is because you got killed or were betrayed/killed by the gang.

    Ryan the super late spoiler guy. crown  Also, I played Red Dead, hated everything about it but whatever that's not the point, and I figured if they made a prequel to Red Dead you'd play as that retired gunsliger guy that you worked with in Mexico.

    Whole point of the guest was to talk about F1 and they spent maybe 3mins on it lol.

      They didn't even get to whether it's staying in Austin (which it is, until 2020)

      Also, Ashley described it as "one of the biggest F1 events of the year". As an F1 fan, I'd struggle to name an event on this years calendar with less following or importance than the US Grand Prix.

    I still think we should force Ryan to play Fate stay Night for game club.

      That, or some kind of action/adventure/etc. type visual novel. On its most basic level a visual novel is just a choose your own adventure picture book. If you would not read a romance novel you should not read a romance visual novel.


      However, Fate/Stay Night is probably not a good Game Club game. It was never released in the US, and it is a pain in the ass to get your hands on the PC game. You can get the vita and PS2 versions, but I do not know how to apply the English language patch to a PS2/vita game (or even if you can). Given its current status, if you want to play it now, you have to illegally download it, and that is not something we want to encourage. Hopefully Type Moon will stop scorning the west some time soon. Maybe around the time of the Tsukihime remake.


      I have heard good things about Danganronpa, but Gus threw that one out.

    So what are the odds that when we meet the Extra Life goal and force Ryan to play a game of Pokemon he gets hooked and becomes a full blown Pokenerd?

    How about Red Dead Revelation, where the Revelation is Marston revealing his gang history (the actual game play) to his son before his demise in Redemption.

    Did The Patch just equate the German Empire with Nazi Germany? Don’t get me wrong, the German Empire was not the nicest nation on the planet, but I do not think the great colonial empires of the UK and France are in much of a position to criticize the


    On a slight tangent, I would love to play a campaign in German East Africa. For those who do not know, the Germans fought an incredibly successful guerilla war in German East Africa during WW1. The East African Campaign is one of the more interesting fronts of WW1.

    I'll stick to consoles for rockstar games. On PC, the online component is broken, the mods are cool, but the effort required to install and troubleshoot incompatible mods has a sharp drop off. The control schemes are still optimized for controllers in most cases, but the aiming is still more precise on a mouse, so controller is at a disadvantage. Overall GTA V is a better experience on consoles, and it looks like the same will be true for Red Dead Redemption 2 Online will be too. Heck! I would love to see both GTA and RDR on the Nintendo Switch!

      Well there was a list of confirmed 3rd party partners for the Switch and Take 2 (Rockstar's and 2K Games' parent company) are on that list so it's possible
