Halfway through page two we finally get an impression.

I'm at work, probably won't be home until 6 CDT.  If you see "me" pop on, it's a friend of mine that signed for the delivery.  Between this and expecting an evening call from the girl I'm dating, I'm really not looking forward to the seven hours between now and then.

I had fun taking out the bandit locations with you all last night.  I'm sad that it looks like there are only eight of them and they seem to be fixed things, rather than randomized.  Working with friends in free roam is fun.

So, any feelings on ps3 vs. 360?  I picked it up at lunch just now and I went with the 360 version because i have a larger friend's list on that platform.  however, the clerk was telling me that the ps3 version has some nice add-ins that the 360 version doesn't.

I was tempted to go 360 on this, but I don't play with the regular clique of people from here, at least not on a regular enough basis for the MP to really matter to me. I'm more interested in the SP anyway. I haven't even touched the MP.

The PS3 exclusive content isn't much to write home about, it's just a new outfit and an extra gang mission or something like that.

If you don't care about MP then either one is fine. If you want MP I can't see going with the PS3 version if you have both systems...

They both have their perks Leo, to be completely honest, we never even did any of the MP games, we merely just rode the country side.

Do the Bonnie missions before you do anything else. Hooks you up with the Lasso, a great horse, and some cash.

Without the lasso, you can't capture bounties, you gotta kill em. Learned that lesson the hard way frown

i'm right there with you jaydee.  working from home, but unable to sneak out to pick up my copy, let alone play it.  it will have to wait until later.  i have been gorging on youtube gameplay videos, but i think that makes it worse seeing it and not being able to play it myself. 

damnh, there are some great looking environments in there.

Got some weird things going on....

I wound up with a copy for the 360 and a copy for the PS3.    My intention was to keep both of them for several weeks and then sell one off depending on my preference and how much staying power the multiplayer has.

Well....  so my first test was to load both games up so that they are standing in front of the Armadillo station and compare graphics.    I immediately noticed the 360 looked FAR superior, which is usually NOT the case.    I flipped back and forth and realized that the TV input tag had the 360 version showing at 1080p (upscaled obviously), but the PS3 version was showing at 720p.     Nothing I have done so far has been able to toggle that to 1080p on the PS3.     Any ideas?

Ok on random encounter missions where I can take someone dead or alive..how do I get them alive? I have no lasso and I've beat them to death for a good 2 minutes and they just get up and run still. I finally have to shoot them.

I have tried some MP free fighting but it refuses to stay connected long. I just now got an update so maybe that will help. Anyone else get disco'd a lot?

I cannot connect to the code server yet. So no dlc for me or no outfit yet.

hmmm I'll check what my ps3/tv displays when I get home if no one verifies in the meantime.
Wasn't there a way to disable output resolutions so that the ps3 always scales to the resolution you choose?

wll it's been tossed several more times.  for whatever reason whenever I have to lean Marston right everything is fine, but as soon as I have to lean right it's game over.  the stick works fine.  they purposely make the camera go funky to fuck with you though, and whatever you do don't try and break a horse near a cactus as that'll fuck up the camera even more when it decides it's time to move.

Are you sure it's just not because you've been up playing this game since it came out and you're a bit tired?

I won't be able to try this until at least 10pm pacific tonight.  I'll post my impressions of this mission when I get to it.
