The law of the west is so oddly enforced, with a maximum honor rating, you really can get away anything short of murder. I just hogtied, and stole the ammo of, the whole saloon clientele of the Armadillo Saloon and no one went running to the sheriff.

I think it's a not so much an enforcement issue as it is a case that everyone respected you so much that they had no problem letting you tie them up and take their ammo they didn't dob you in so the sherrif never knew and there for had know reason to come arrest you.

Having said that inside the Armadillo Saloon on the top floor near your room is a great place to have a stand off against the the law. They only come in through to saloon doors on the floor unless you move to far away from your room they come in through the 2nd floor entrance as well. You can take out everyone easy. If you let them come inside a bit before blowing them away you can restock on the ammo they drop no problem.

I enjoy holding out on the balcony of the saloon, and then escaping once the train arrives.

In Casa Madrugada people keep respawning and you gain no bounty for your crimes. At least..that's how it is for me.

It's basically a shooting gallery.

Is it a lawless town like Thieves' Landing? You can do the same there except the gallery will sometimes shoot back.

Really I wont get in trouble with the law by picking a fight in Thieves Landing. I could have retaliated against the guy who was trying to fist fight me. Instead of trying to run away and falling into the swamp.

Couple of questions.

1st Bill Williamston Is it at all possible to bring him in alive or do you have to shoot him? Best I could find was waiting for the other guy to shoot Bill and the mexican president guy.

Also the I know you stranger misson Just want to confirm so the stranger is some kind of hallucination from Johns guilt or something is he?

Saw it coming a mile away. I thought it the only possible way for the story to end.

I guess it was predictable, but I so wanted to believe that he would survive. Made me sad.

Yeah, I share your sentiment. Doesn't help that Jack's voice is annoying as hell while playing. He also lacks a certain 'awesomeness' factor. Perhaps the lack of scars. Or the facial hair.

Yahtzee kind of liked it, so it must be close to perfect :D

I totally agree with you, gungnir. I wish there was a cheat or something to make Jack back into John. I'm completing a lot of the stranger missions that i ignored when i was playing the campaign and it loses something when Jack is completing his father's quests without even the admission that he's not the same guy.

I just saw the strangest random encounter...

2 asian looking dudes near a tent and a whole bunch of TNT. One says, 'One little spark and we go BOOM!' (or something like that.) Then they blew up. Large bang. Bodies go flying.
