Red Dead Redemption
« on: May 19, 2010, 11:00:44 am »
So, I'm semi-surprised that there's no topic for this game yet.  I've heard it's name thrown around a bit for the last while, but for the most part I havn't paid it any heed.  Then all of a sudden I'm hearing that it's like, the best game in the history of the last little while, so I figure I'm going to pick it up later today.  How about you guys?  Anyone else look into the game yet?  Anyone get it yet?  I must say, it looks like great fun and the multiplayer is something I wouldn't mind trying with some of you.

I have it ordered. Amazon was giving a $10 coupon thing for other purchases for preordering.
Gotta say, those trailers and all the buzz on the internet about RDR really sold me. It sounds pretty damn awesome.

It'll be PS3 though. Don't know what you guys all have.

That's unfortunate, as I'm picking it up for the 360.

Still, we can regale eachother with our fabulous tales of Wild West hijinks.

So, are you going to play as a Paragon or a Renegade?

No idea what I'll play as. To be honest, I doubt I'll play it twice unless the story is totally different or there are a whole bunch of really specific achievements for either side.
In games with bad vs. good sorta stuff, I'm mostly a good guy though. That's usually with a handful of bad things done.

I'm totally tying bitches up and putting them on the railroad tracks though. There's just some things men were born to witness.

I wonder just what sort of things you can do with the lasso, because if you can drag people, I am so doing that.  Especially if I can do it behind a train.

Gah I want it to be 5:30 so I can go home and play this!

I picked it up on the 360 with Alan Wake. So far the game seems fun. I've only put in an hour or two so far and I've found a treasure map and it's treasure, hunted down a bounty, shot and skinned my horse, and played some poker. (totally shot my horse on accident, had to reload a save.) And I've unlocked a sombrero for my avatar. I'll have to give Multi a try later in the week.
I need a new tag.

Wait, i dont even...

What is this game? Open ended? Linear? I see its made by Rockstar, is it GTA-like?
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

My copy should be arriving any day now. If I'm unlucky, it'll be as late as next week.
So jazzed.

I have been seeing posters for this game on every second bus stop and tram that rolls past me lately. If I hadn't already over stuffed my gaming schedule I'd be right in to get this. I guess I should spend a weekend to try and knock off Just cause and free some space.

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.
