    On the weapons equip complaint: "You can keep your pistols." Yeah, because they are in the holsters on you. If your long guns are stored on your horse, you have no access to them. This isn't hard to understand after playing a decent amount of the game.

    Greetings Future Nick!

    You are looking dapper! I love that dexter shirt you are wearing tonight!

    Anyways, the discussion about VR and Astrobot led to Brad mentioning that he wants Mario in VR. This got me thinking about the likelihood of us seeing Nintendo delve into the VR space. Is it likely? If so, will the hardware be able to compete or will it be a cheap alternative that doesn’t compare to the tech standards set by Sony and Oculus?

    Thanks for holding down the fort in my absence!

    Quick hunting tip on Red Dead- if you hit RB (or RT on PS4) for 'show info', it always ends with "Use a [xxxxxxxx] for a clean kill." so you know what to use to preserve the pelt.
