If this brings us RDR 1 and 2 to the PC I will GLADLY download it. Sadly I still have my copy of 5 through Rockstar's Store and it's a fucking bitch if I ever need to download and install again.

It's rather annoying but seriously fuck off unless you are announcing RDR2 for PC.

How was it? Different. I knew you'd like it.

They need to bring the psychotic Latina back!

How insensitive! Don't you know it's LATINX now? Latinks? Not Latina!

Nah that's mostly just for when you don't know the gender or are speaking of all Latinx.

people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.

10 years from now, every company has their own launcher, that are absolute garbage. Someone finds incomplete code in each, and when all are active at the same time, it begins Skynet.

So, anyone know if they've fixed the digital version of San Andreas since ruining it five years ago? Gutting several of the radio stations was bad enough, but they even broke or intentionally downgraded some things at a system level so that ALL versions were identical to their fucking mobile port. I.e. HD resolutions such as 1080p were dropped, previously fixed crashes were reintroduced, of course all older saves were wrecked... But hey, the game now has native Xbox controller support!

Giving this away for free now without a constructive update is only going to remind people of these issues.

There is a patch that adds the music back, and there are ways to patch (unpatch?) it to previous versions. I already own the pre-hot coffee disk version and have it on Steam. I don't see myself ever playing it again though. I've played the story mode three times, and completed it 100% twice.

Does it have offline mode and is this going to replace the stupid Rock Star Social Club crap that you have to launch GTA V through? I hate that when I go to fire up GTA V single player to blow off some steam by mowing down people in the street, I have to sign in even though I've checked remember me, and then complete two CAPCHAs and if my internet is down or Rockstar's service is down, you can't even play.

Snagged.
Who doesn't love a free game and launcher.
They must be getting ready for the exclusive launch of RDR2 on EGS.

Well, it has a store, which has a cart, soooo...

After all the 'anguish' over EGS, Rockstar thought it was the perfect time to introduce their own type of kindling to the dumpster!

"Hey, everyone, you know that god-awful Rockstar Social Club that everyone despises and no one uses? Yeah, we're gonna bet our future on that, so get downloadin'!"

You can't make this stuff up, folks!
