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.

for anyone looking to get this, Kmart has it for sale with a $20 gc.  it's one of those new deal promos like they did with nier, ff13, etc.  posting on cag about it, but i thought i'd mention it for anyone interested.

tk-421 beat me to the draw. 

it was the article by the religious gamer who linked it to nuns only.  typical assumption fallacy on his part and a sign he didn't bother to check what the achievement actually said.  had he tossed a hooker on to the tracks instead, we'd be hearing about how rockstar is really a against prostitution instead.   Roll Eyes

Gamefly is sending me split second, so between rides out west, I'll be able to offer impressions of this one too.

I was tempted by Alan wake with the kmart deal, but I think I'll wait until my wallet regenerates some cash.

Hark played for about 10 hours straight... I took a bit of a break. Damage was on all night from what I can tell...

he'll have this one finished before I even get my feet dirty...

Got some good time with it tonight while everyone was out playing cowboy. It's going to be hard to put it down. Just finished up myth and the RE inspired mansion. It's odd that such a different take on the gameplay works as well as it does here considering how jarring it usually is in other games.

Man, I just met the real big bad guy.  That was a long fight but not overly difficult leading up to it. Not sure what to expect next in the story.

Any idea how far I am from the end? 
6609  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Dead Redemption gameplay trailer on: May 18, 2010, 01:53:36 AM
Yup. You can even shoot your own horse while you are riding on it if you desire. Probably good for a laugh.

a little word about how deadeye works in mp from GI

Quote
Dead Eye carries over to multiplayer, but works in real time. While this may not be as powerful a tool as it is in single-player, it preserves the gameplay balance and comes in handy when you find yourself behind a group of enemies.

if it plays out in real-time, it must be something of an "auto shoot all available targets kind of thing."  i hope it's not as easy as that, but otherwise, i have no idea how to make it work in mp where there are already problems with lag ruining people's satisfaction.  see MW2

NYT
Eurogamer - 8
IGN UK - 9.8
IGN - 97
Game Informer
Edge Review - 9  not as swooning as the others, so a good choice if you are gta4 weary.

the old thread has served its purpose.  Time to move on.  I'll update the top with any notable reviews.  

Now, to start, who's going to a midnight release?  I won't be able to dive in until tomorrow, but at least i will be working from home so i should be able to sneak in a bit from time to time.

it's done
6622  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Dead Redemption gameplay trailer on: May 17, 2010, 02:25:19 PM
Why?  Because an impressions thread with 15 bob-damned pages of idle chat isn't going to help someone looking for game impressions. It's not worth the effort to wade through all this nonsense and it's not like we have to conserve threads. If we did ceekay would be considered a an extinction-level event.
6623  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Dead Redemption gameplay trailer on: May 17, 2010, 06:58:17 AM
You got bullet time shooting; not sure how that works in mp though. There's a lot more randomness to the world and you have more than one stance to how you advance the plot, afaik. Cover mechanics will probably be like gta4.

I'll keep it bookmarked for later.

I'd guess this guy has found a way to lower his metabolism so far that he's not breathing anywhere close to normal. Hence the lower water loss.

picked this up during a previous sale.  fun and interesting platformer with a decently challenging mechanic.  you find parts for your ship which both increase your reach and your weight and give you various abilities.  tractor beam, for example. 

a good game for the price if you are looking for something different.

Eah, it wasn't until I stopped using the bait did I finally get the right fish. I'm sure there's a guide out there listing the right beach/lure combos to get which fish.


It's got an achievement for finishing under 15 hours, so it's not a long game by neccessity. Save points are not that far apart and I have only had to play about an hour to reach the next one, max. As for cursing, it's in there, but not gratuitously and really only when one character is on screen. I would skip straight to the title screen though. Subtitles are fully available.
6640  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nier, action/adventure beat-em-up from Square Enix on: May 14, 2010, 02:01:32 PM
I went back after getting kaine to join and after I'd picked up a better weapon.  It was ridiculously easy then.

fishing is a bit of a pita IMO. Spending money on the bait nets me exactly the same as just the lure. When I used the sardines as bait, all I ever caught was junk. I'm chalking it up to early location but I won't be surprised if it happens a lot during the game.
