Hah!  Got it.  Went into the Gamespot and the shipment hadn't come in yet.  Left to get lunch.  Turns out the UPS guy came in litterally seconds after I left.  Got back just in time to grab the last copy.

It'll be PS3 though. Don't know what you guys all have.
You may have bought the wrong version. ;)

Personally, I'll be waiting for the inevitable PC version of the game. It sounds interesting, but I'm not gonna buy a console for it.

Meh, I don't have a 360 anyway so it doesn't matter that much.
I don't mind low res. Though I'm with you on the PC thing, at least in that I'd love to wait it out. It could be like a year or more before that happens though.  :-X

Don't see what's wrong with that.

anyone who gives a **** about small details and crap like that is an asshat :P
Well, the difference is rather noticeable, so I wouldn't call it small details.
Also, isn't the PS3 supposed to be more powerful than the Xbox 360?

Though I'm with you on the PC thing, at least in that I'd love to wait it out. It could be like a year or more before that happens though.  :-X
I have little choice. I'm not gonna spend 300-something euros on one game.
Though I guess with LittleBigPlanet 2 coming up... >_>

I've only done 3 or 4 story missions so far. Herding cattle FTW! I've been having more fun doing hunting and talking to strangers. I think i need to finish the ranch mission string so I can get my lasso. I need to bring in some of these bounties alive.

Is anyone else having problems with killing their horse(s)? Sometimes when enemies and wild animal get too close it's real easy to shoot your horse in the back of the head. Also I killed another horse buy running it too fast. Now I kinda wanna trying running full speed shooting the horse in the back of the head right before I run off a cliff.  :D

Having fun with the game, it's a real time eater.
I need a new tag.

So, I jumped onto a moving train.  And then fell off as it went over a bridge.  Good times.

YES, I've done it twice. Poor little horseys. But then I skin them for moola. <_<   >_>


Multiplayer is really fun, especially with friends.

God I love hunting.  It's so satisfying to drop a whole pack of coyotes from horseback in the space of a second.

Okay. My item is in Richmond. Should get it any day now. Grr.

Also, I've been hearing that cougars are nasty little bastards that will raid your ass.

Apparently this is nowhere near close to a worst case scenario.

EDIT: Also this.

I think I'm up to 15 hours on this game, and about 30% complete (Been screwing around a lot)
I went to the midnight launch of it with my friends.

Great game, just finished the 1st act, and onto the 2nd "island"
I just got my buffalo rifle, and man does that thing rock! Was a pain to get, that involved killing 2 cougars with a knife  :o


Also, I think I'm like lvl 7 or 8 online, but haven't played much of that. It's not as crazy as I thought it would be.
Only a few people have been going all Rambo in free roam. We took out a few gang hideouts with some random people who just happen to be there.

Don't think it will last, but the multi-player was a lot of fun.
