I only have gripes with the next gen version and the DLC for it. It's pretty annoying when you can pull off flips in a car at will in one version, and then struggle to turn left in the next. Or walk in a straight line, even.

Let's hope this is good. They kept their employees away from their families for a few months. Let's see if it was worth destroying said families and then being sued over it.

I didn't like the driving at all in GTA 4. I never actually finished the game. I got to a point where the only 4 missions I could do involved chasing or being chased in a car or motorcycle. It was so frustrating that I just stopped playing.

I'm buying Red Dead Redemption though. I don't know if I'm going to get it tonight or wait til the weekend.

Pyro im running out to get it here when Best Buy opens. So we can roll around in a posse at some point.

Just a heads up for everyone...
Exclusive content for Best Buy is a "War Horse". Supposed to be a horse thats stronger and faster.

Exclusive for Gamestop is a "Deadly Assassin outfit". I believe it has better aiming ability.

And amazon gives you a Golden gun pack.

This game starts off slooooow but is pretty fantastic once it gets going. I thought the "dead eye" shooting was pretty generic looking in the previews, but it's actually remarkably fun, especially when you use it to, completely unnecessarily, put 6 holes in one poor guy.

To end this quickly, it didn't work out. He gibbed, but I didn't hear that bo-dip sound

I got a guy with it yesterday. I roped him in Armadillo and took him west. I screwed around and missed the train so I put him back on the horse and got myself far enough ahead of the train to drop him in the tracks. No acheivement but it was funny as hell to me.

I've got alot of hours in this game now. I enjoy all the things you can do and I'm taking my time through the game and not doing the missions all at once. I've found a 3 treasures. Killed and skinned tons of animals. Broke in some horses, done a bunch of nightwatch missions. Cleared a couple hideouts. I've done 5 or 6 wanted poster missions. Just having a good time with it. I haven't crossed the water yet into the new areas.

I was in thieves landing tonight and a whore says to me as I walk by "I hate to see a man with a dry pecker, can I help?" lol

I haven't tried that one yet. I'm killing tons of animals. There's a spot south of armadillo that usually has 7+ Bucks in it. You just need to spring em, dead eye them all and collect some good money back in town. The commentary is pretty funny and I'm usually in no hurry to complete missions because I keep finding stuff to do along the way.

Is anybody interested in making a possee and running around? I have to say, I'm pretty satisfied with how this game is shaping out. It's really fun, lots of stuff to do... I guess the only real bad thing is that it sucks away time like nobody's business.

My 13 year old beat the game in one week. I bought it for him the Tuesday it came out, and the following Tuesday he had beat it. Now he's going back through and doing all of the other stuff.

I've watched him play but I have no desire to start it. Looks too addictive.
