    They have a forum just like this one, but dedicated to RDR2. Come check it out. I'm a mod over there. 😁 https://www.rdr2.com/forums/

    Salt mines are broken

  4. It DOES look great, but I HATE FIRST PERSON GAMES!!!! Why can't they just make a toggle . . . ??
  5. Very nice. Someone who can should post a legend of specifically who they all are.
  6. I looked it up. Looks compelling, even though I hate first-person games.
  7. Many of we gamers tend to watch the calendar for the release of a game we're excited about. What's yours?

    Well, this is Fun...

    All the host has to do is wait for the match to end, then kick both out of the lobby. Problem is solved with a little patience.
  9. I'm curious - how does one know when they're in the Salt Mines? Do they get a notification?

    Why Jason? Why did he endure?

    Perhaps it helps that I never saw any of those. 😁 Understand, though. This isn't about being "wronged" or "scorned." This is about an innocent child -- having been raised in 1950's America, which didn't like anything different or unusual in the first place -- tortured and abused throughout his life simply for being born the way he was. His mother -- an innocent herself -- loved him with all her heart. But society refused to let it alone, so it took him from her. To me, that's quite different from having a cheating spouse or somebody just being bullied. To be honest, it truly was the backstory that drew me to the series. I didn't care for it until I knew the depth of the story. Okay, I'll throw you a bone, here. Yes, I definitely think them trying to do 10+ films with a sack-head Jason wouldn't have worked nearly as well. The hockey mask definitely helped. NOW -- that being said, had Michael Myers worn that hockey mask rather than his painted Shatner mask -- would many of the loyal F13 fans instead be loyal Halloween fans? (I'm not saying they have to be one or another. I'm just wondering how many F13 fans would place their affections solely on Halloween, had the masks been different?

    Why Jason? Why did he endure?

    I'll go first. I can't speak for the world, but for me personally -- it was the root of the story. Most "killer" characters either didn't have much background development, or were just "evil" to begin with. They could still tell a good story, but they were always "the bad guy" and you were supposed to hope for their victims to survive. With Jason, though -- it was sort of the other way round, wasn't it? Both Jason and his mother started off as victims. They became statistics of a society who either didn't care enough about them to help, or turned an intentional blind eye to their sufferings. Society killed Jason -- the only thing that really mattered to Pamela. So, she snapped. In F13, often the victims are people we AREN'T supposed to like. Then we cheer when Jason RISES again and extracts vengeance for himself and his mother. If we know the whole story, we feel for JASON. As parents, we feel for PAMELA. They are not lashing out because they are evil. They are lashing out because they were forced there by society. Does that make Jason/Pamela sort of "anti-hero" characters? That's open to interpretation. But in these films, we often enjoy seeing Jason clean house, and THEN get to a point where we're ready for him to be stopped. And he is. At least for a while. The formula works, and it's an emotional payoff. That's why this story will always be my favorite.
  12. Two things: I think people would have largely been happier with the Grendel/uber-Jason release over the single player challenges. Please. Have mercy on a copywriter/proofreader. I beseech you to fix your instances of "would you OF rather," "rather OF," and "could OF" by replacing "of" with "have". It's making me want to claw my eyeballs out. Could've = Could have. Could've ≠ Could of. Bless you.
