How the hell am I supposed to pick up Micah's gun, if the cutscene just continues to the end credits after I shot him in the balls 5 times? :)

don't take my word for it. i'm sure i remembered wrongly the more i think about it now.. i think there should be a break before the credits..
No, I finished yesterday. No break, no Micah gun in the inventory afterwards.

You can go back and pick the gun up. Micah's body is still there. I grilled him with a Molotow Cocktail, because he deserved it.  ;D

I also spend hours roaming the world and revisiting people who interacted with Arthur, like the widow he taught how to hunt.

Oh, and of course I paid my respect to the man himself. Realy sad.  :'( :'(

Worst one to re-visit is Rain Falls at the Annesburg station...  :-[

Yes, Rain Falls had an especially miserable fate. Poor guy. :(

Well, since I'm in the mood and RDR1 more or less continues the story of RDR2 I payed GameStop a visit. Let's see if I get this thing to run on an emulator on my PC.

The worst thing that could happen is, that I have to play it on the Xbox one, when the wife and the kids are in bed or sell it back to GameStop with a loss.

I'm probably in the minority when I say this but I actually prefer RDR1 over RDR2.  I've also heard they are doing a remake of RDR1 for the PS5 and Xbox Series X.

^ i've had a couple of mates say that too. but i haven't had the time to look for someone/ somewhere selling rdr1 to play on my old ps3. so we'll see how that goes..

i'm not too fussed about gameplay with rock* stuff. i wouldn't be able to tell the difference. so the storyline really holds it together for me with arthur..

If you like ninjas and samurais, the Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, and video games that are video-gamey, Ghost of Tsushima is really great. It kind of feels like an indie game with AAA graphics. I don't know if it the game of the generation like I was hoping for. But it succeeds in being fun and making you feel like a bad-ass samurai.

I really enjoyed the Last of Us 2 also. I didn't care for the story [at first]. But it really grew on me. I also go my first platinum trophy playing it, and actually played through the story 3 times. There's an accessibility option that lets you add slow motion aiming, so the game kind of can be Max Payne 3, super fun and addictive. The game is brutal and violent...

The resource management in the game is great because you're always low on ammo, you have to try and plan out your attacks. But there's always more ammo just around the corner. There are these flashbacks in between the chapters that are kind of boring and it would be cool if you can skip them in new game +, but you can't. Other than that, this was my favorite game in a long time.

I have PS4 and the last game was Ghost of Tsushima. Obviously my favourite one is The Witcher, but this one was fun also

I bought an LGCX OLED TV several months ago with my stimulus check and hotel points, and had instant buyers remorse when I read the HDMI 2.1 ports could only support 10 GBPS and not the full 12. They released this information roughly 31 days after I bought the TV and I was mad because I wanted to return it but I was outside the window. LG had said that the TV supported full HDMI 2.1 at CES but then backtracked so they could increase the internal processing memory for their AI upscaling engine...

But specs for the Xbox Series X were just leaked today and I feel a lot better because the Series X will have a maximum output bandwidth of 10 GBPS anyway. So the LGCX will support full 4k/60 and HDR with variable refresh rate (VRR). I feel very relieved.

Was that English you just spoke?

@Giles kind of broken English. I'm only like semi-literate.  ;D

But it means that the new devices and ports on devices need more bandwidth (packet size) because the resolution is so high and the image frequency (Hertz or frames per second) is higher.

"Screenshot_20200817-170837_Dropbox.jpg"

But these new game consoles aren't always able to display a consistent framerate. When the framerate of the xbox doesn't consistently match the display frequency of the TV you get what's called screen tearing.. . it looks like this:
"0_B17jPOMzGD7qwDHG.jpg"

So there is a language my TV can use to display the same exact framerate the xbox is able to send out. So this requires more bandwidth than a regular HDMI port/cable can transmit. Since there are no available devices that can output HDMI 2.1 this is all completely theoretical. But I had hoped that my new TV would be future-proof (at least until affordable 8K OLED TVs are available).

@Filthy

You know way more about this stuff than I do, but would this be of any use to you?
