Thing I wish I'd earned earlier on RDR2: Do all the available white-circle side quests before any yellow-circle main story quests. Advancing the story will permanently lock out some uncompleted side quests.
Don’t finish chapter 4 untl you’re good and ready. Like, finish collecting dinosaur bones, fishing, hunting, etc. Do as much as you can...Cuz the story will start to dictate.

SEVERE SPOILER
[+] spoiler
Arthur gets TB and his core gets irreparably dinged before he dies.
I’m seriously considering starting over cuz I’ve left a lot of unfinished business
[+] spoiler
...that I wanted to play as Arthur to complete.

Don't want to click those spoilers, so just to ask: is it more a matter of "you won't be able do that stuff for a while" or "you won't be able do that stuff anymore, period"? Because I am really tempted to bore through the main story and then just mess around with the side stuff in the end game.

I have to try and do the side quests first. I've caught 4 big fish and a few on the hunting ones. Just can't decide if I need to head north up the river on the east side to get some stuff done.

Both. You’ll be able to finish side quests later, but you might’ve noticed there are chapter missions that become available that effectively end the current chapter and start a new one, potentially leaving behind unstarted missions. Pretty sure they’re gone.

So why did it take so long for Arthur to expel Leopold Strauss from the gang? I was wondering why my honor was hovering around the middle. And then, BOOM, Arthur's honor goes way, way up. Nice little SJW mode Arthur got himself into. TB must be a massive correction on the ol' moral compass.

OK red deaders...I'm not really sure where I am in the game. To be as vague as possible I'm at the second place the group camps. And have been playing both sides in the Hatfields/McCoy/Gray/Braithwaite shit. Then I got to a point where that is no longer tenable after a yellow mission.

So do i need to go around and do my hunting and shit and get as much of that done as possible? Feel free to answer with as few spoilers as needed.

I'm almost at the point (late Chapter 4) where Enoch said earlier to focus on hunting and side stuff before some major shit goes down. Which I've done quite a bit of, but I wouldn't say it feels totally necessary. Enoch—I've avoided your spoilers, but maybe you can fill us in more in a non-spoilery way.

AB, from where it sounds like you are, you still have a ways to go. The story will take you to the big city (St. Denis), and there's a full chapter that centers around there.

The question you wanna ask is whether or not you want to do them as Arthur Morgan or John Marston. The status of all the quests carry over. Weapons will too once you've completed some missions as Marston, but...

So I finally got to the Chapter 4/5 transition and yeah, I wish I had taken Enoch's advice more strictly. Waiting to see how long before the game returns to "normal."

As an aside: I don't know if there was a patch, but after getting about 30 hours in without anyone calling me a "cocksucker," it's now happened four times in the last few.

I did a mission in Ch 6 where Sadie and Arthur go bust John Marston from prison...As I approached her, my horse went nuts and bucked me like I was doing his sister. Turned out there was about a 10 foot gator within 10 feet of us, as I lay there on my back wondering wtf just happened.

The gator didn't seem too bothered though. He was just sunning himself. You know...regulating that core temp. So yeah, he wasn't in the water so he was mentally shut down. Not saying you should go pet a gator outside of water, but the vastly prefer to hunt in the water rather than land.

So anyway, I shot him dead and skinned him for his hide.

Yeah. It’s probably my fult. Each of the first two times I didn’t get to play much after so I guess I didn’t hit a save point.

If you like to retro game, I highly recommend a RetroPi setup. Buy a raspberry Pi, a few USB controllers and you can play emulated games from all kinds of old systems. I have just been dominating my kids in Nintendo hockey (fat guy, skinny guy, etc), balloon fight, Techmo Bowl, RBI Baseball, NBA Jam, street fighter, old EA Hockey, etc.
