Outlaws till the end
« on: 13 May 2010, 12:50 »

The video games sites have been all a twitter about it for the past few months so, since it's coming out next week, who's going to be getting Red Dead Redemption?  Here's the launch trailer

My cousin's crazy about it, telling me I should get it so we can saddle up and ride out as a posse, but I don't seem as eager to get it.

Red Dead Revolver on PS2 was awesome. There aren't many western themed games.

I never played Red Dead Revolver, but the 'GTA with cowboys' descriptor most people have applied to this game makes it sound only slightly more appealing than an actual GTA game to me (read: not at all), and even then only because of the relative novelty of the setting. Money's kind of tight for me recently, so I'll probably give this a pass.

already pre-ordered. getting it for 360, if anyone cares.

I feel like it could be fantastic, or disappointing. Luckily, I'm at a point in my life right now where I can afford to gamble on a new game and trade it in later if I don't like it.

hopefully, I don't like it too much though, because I'm also getting several other games this month and I mean, shit, there's only 24 hours ina day, game companies! WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME

The last wild west game I played was Gun, which was pretty good even though the wide open world was fucking boring. The funny thing is that it was actually pretty representative of how the wide open world was in those days, so I guess maybe it's just not the genre for me.

The story for this looks pretty neat, and in some places the graphics look great.  But in others the graphics just look really really bad for some reason.  Like, 5 years ago bad or something.  It's puzzling!

Apparently there's some bug in the multiplayer that makes you, your house, or your gun invisible sometimes.

Oh god the cougar man! I haven't seen any of those glitches yet, its actually kind of a shame. But hey, as long as your game is gonna have graphical glitches they might as well be amusing.

Seriously though they need to take care of that online invisibility bullshit, It's annoying when you're dealing with an invisible sniper.

I especially like it when they start flapping their wings and the little *poof* of feathers when they get shot. I'm thinking that these glitches must have been placeholders or something for the models that they ended up using (in most cases).

I hadn't really thought to try that since I'm one of those lame people who always make their first playthrough the good guy one, but it sounds like a cool idea to try if I get bored and decide to do a rampage, just going on a killing spree and just not saving, which I've been doing for every GTA since 3 basically, great for parties if you know your weapons cheats.

I tried the online and I formed up a posse and took down same gang hideouts.  Pretty fun!

And then I did some TEAM DEATHMATCH where I got second place.  The Bolt Action Rifle is pretty nasty!

A really easy way to get the bounty/wanted challenges done in MP is to hide behind the counter in Armadillo's general store.

you can easily watch both entrances and everyone shows up on your map anyway, so you're basically untouchable, sort of.

Dynamite is usually a good way to end that sort of nonsense.

A real man would take my Evans Repeater to the head.

And like it.

But seriously, I am loving MP. Although I had my first ever encounter with a bunch of homophobic teen racists a few days ago. Sure I knew they existed but I had never come across any since the only multiplayer game I play is L4D/2, so I guess when the concept of the game is team work you naturally come across non-asshole players.

It seems the more people there are on a map the more likely some will ride around gunning other people down.
