I am not seeing the problem here. My wife is out of town for 5-6 days next weekend and I plan on spending a LOT of that time with a PS4 controller in my hand. Hell, she is around this weekend and I will do much the same. I'll also change the air filters, do some laundry and make dinner Sunday but otherwise games need to be played.

I think I get what you're saying but "PS4 controller" is a really weird euphemism.

I think most of my deaths consists of dying from being flown off my horse. I've gotta learn to slow down :P

I saw some dude on the side of the road doing something with his horse then when he noticed me the horse got startled and punted him about 20 feet into the air and died.

Does anybody know if Legendary Animals respawn?

I tracked down the Legendary White Bison but when I got the killing shot he fell into the lake. By the time I was able to get to where the body was it had sunk too deep into the water to recover.

I just read in a hunting guide that one need not worry too much about losing Legendary Skins, as the trapper ends up with them. I’m not sure if the animal wasn’t skinned, but you might check him. I’ve only gotten a couple, but I’m kind of under the impression that certain Legendary Skins are meant to be collected multiple times...?

All I see online says they end up at the trapper even when not skinned. One per it seems.

You can only kill them once and yes the skin will teleport to the trapper if you don't skin them. You just lose out on the money part. I learned this the hard way when I tried to swim across a river carrying one. Some of the recipes use it multiple times, but you don't need to get another skin. That whole thing was super confusing to me at first. I really hate how it's not easy to find the recipes that you can use. I have to click through all the menus until I find something. And remembering what you need to get to a certain thing? Good luck. If I missing something there please let me know.

Strat guides are on sale now in a lot of places. Grabbed the hardcover at lunch from Target for 25 bucks. That's way more reasonable then the original 40 bucks. I won't use it to look up missions, but it has a lot of guides on where to hunt animals. That doesn't really feel like cheating to me and will make it a lot less frustrating. So far I've only seen like 3-4 snakes total for example. :doh:

I've yet to see a snake, though I barely just started Chapter 3. Speaking of, I am having a ball with this game, but man is there sooo much to do. I haven't really done any hunting and fishing beyond the quests that drive them. There are also dinosaur bones and rock carvings/paintings/whatever and poker and dominoes. I think I might grab a strat guide too, like Oct says, not for anything mission related, I really just want maps to the collectibles and hunting stuff. I *really* miss the Ubigame compass of everything.

Realistically, none of that side stuff is necessary at all but it is nice to have. I used a YouTube "5 best weapons" video to find a couple awesome free guns that I never, ever would have found on my own. I also got the location of a gold bar that helped me unlock fast travel... holy cow does this game have the slowest damn fast travel I have ever seen. I fast traveled to strawberry in about the time it would take to ride to strawberry.

Well looking at the animal guide it's because of the certain areas they are in. I was just flipping through the book and I would say a good half of the book is reference stuff which isn't super spoilerish. For example if you are looking for Badgers is has a map that shows the general area they can be found. That's really neat. I was looking for one animal FOREVER the other day and I realize that there's only a really tiny area that they will be found where I was looking. So no wonder.

There's actually a mission around this very topic. I played that one last night. :mrgreen:

Cool hunting moment that I forgot to mention. I was sniping coyotes from a cliff. I killed one and it took me A LONG time to get down the cliff over to the body. By the time I got there a f'n bear showed up and started munching on the body. It bolted when it saw me coming. The level of detail in this game is ridiculous.

Created my Online character today. He looks like Lee Van Cleef with a side of Sam Elliott so I'm rather pleased with the results.

Find me with the handle OO Brian.

Except I'm leaving for Mexico tomorrow so I won't be available until sometime after the 9th of Dec.

Polygon
Posses are a way to join forces with other players and stay together. Posses always include a Posse Leader who sets up the Posse, but one kind of Posse is more, well, hardcore than the other.

There are two types:

Temporary Posses are free to set up, have a limit of four players and disappear when the Posse Leader quits. Think of them as a quick and easy way to get your friends together.
Persistent Posses cost you currency to create, max out at seven players, remain after the Posse Leader quits and are available again whenever the Posse Leader is online. Think of them as the kind of thing that serious players will create to customize their Posses, play against other Posses and even battle against each other with Posse Versus.
To create a Posse, press left on the D-pad and select Posse. In the menu that loads, press the Square/X button that corresponds to Form Posse. (The text in the lower right of your screen, not on the menu.) You can use the Player section of the same menu to add Posse Members.

You can also join an existing Posse from the Posse menu, provided that a Posse Leader in your world set the Privacy option to Open when they created theirs.

When you’re in a Posse, everybody who’s in your Posse follows you. If you choose a mission or talk to a Stranger who wants you to do something, your Posse will accompany you. If you just invited someone into your game world (with Invite to Session from the Free Roam > Players menu) but didn’t also set up a Posse, they’ll be left behind.
