The horsey system definitely feels a lot more complex and fiddly than one would likely imagine it to be on first glance. Maybe a little like real horse riding! I think X keeps pace with whoever you’re following but you still gotta steer horsey through less obvious turns of the trail
I am more confused by how exactly the X tapping/holding works in terms of horsey speed levels vs holding forward on the L stick. Hold forward and tap X? Hold X? Double tap and hold X? Nothing seems obviously correct. I wish I had a scuf with those paddles because it’s pretty damn awkward trying to move the camera around on the horse (to shoot wolves or whatever) while doing whatever I’m supposed to be doing with the X button to keep moving
Also as ever I suck badly at aiming with a dual shock but it’s fun learning the rhythm of the different guns. One trigger pull to cock the rifle then another to fire, repeat, etc.
