i'm really hoping the sleazy doctor missions are finished soon.  tired of schlepping across the countryside keeping his dumb ass alive. 

yeah,but they are very very easy though aren't they?

i am presuming Act II will be tougher,i am about 2 or 3 missions away from that

easy but the guy is really frigging annoying. Why can't I just give him the money?  I got at least a grand sitting around.

exactly.  easy enough to be sure but damn is it dull.  i have over 3500 and nothing to spend it on so i save up on provisions and use the stagecoach whenever i am in town.

hit my first glitch last night.  stranger mission where you retrieve someone's girl.  well, i met her just fine, but when i went to leave, she had stuck on the terrain and was flicking in place.  i figured i would lasso the horse and get going that way, but instead it failed the mission.  i exited instead of continuing and it's been reset.  haven't tried it again yet.

OK, the random person running up to you appealing for help and then grabbing you're horse seems to be getting a bit overdone.  it almost makes me think there's going to be a time where it's a person who actually needs help is going to get shot dead.
Im sick of that as well. I figured out if you whistle the horse just dumps the dude and they run away.

i'm finding all that stuff ('someone stole my horse!', 'someone robbed my store!', 'they're hanging my buddy!', etc) to be overdone (nearing the end of mexico at this point). which's unfortunate, because, in moderation (something i'm thinking rockstar could learn a thing or 2 about smile ), it would've worked really well. as is, having done all of'm at least a half-dozen times, i just keep riding now - there's already more than enough repetitive stuff going on without that...

The frequency of these encounters are based on how high your Fame and Honor are. As those stats increase so do the frequency of the encounters.
As with the friend management of GTA IV they seemed to have gone overboard with these encounters.

at least you can ignore them this time w/out any negative effects.

my last 'save my wife' random ended badly as i went into dead eye while trying to hit both the rope and a bandit.  ended up hitting her in the chest while she fell.  ooops, sorry. 

i'm really hoping the sleazy doctor missions are finished soon.  tired of schlepping across the countryside keeping his dumb ass alive.

My last long stint in open roam ended up with me terrorizing the residents of blackwater.  I was doing pretty well to the first 1k bounty when two guys from one posse rode in and proceeded to kill me several times in open ground. I had ignored a posse request from one of them, so apparently thems grounds for killin, I guess. After I rode out a bit without getting chases, I went back to find a good spot to take on the law.  I had a great spot on a hill and got the law to attack. These two clowns decided it was a good moment to take me out again, but I was ready. After taking both of them out 4 times while holding off a half dozen coppers, they decided it was best to leave me alone. They were pretty pissed and were cursing me up and down in chat.

Deadeye in mp is awesome. I popped one of them after disarming him and knee-capping him.  While I wish the lasso was available, I am a bit glad you can't be tied up and left on the ground.

Other than a big box and some cards, I'm not seeing the lure to get that version. It will depend on  whether amazon or kmart (they've made a great effort to fight for my wallet) have good deals on it.

I'm more surprised we are getting this so fast compared to fable>fable 2, but I guess that means the engine will go largely unchanged.

Going to be a busy 4th quarter again.

re animal hunting:  it's kind of like finding specific cars in gta.  you can generally find the same animals in an area, but it's up to the game whether to spawn them or not.  and it often feels like as soon as you need a rabbit or armadillo, you suddenly see none where before you saw herds of them. 

the in-game map also has the animals on it when you are zoomed further out.  from experience, a cougar is dangerous.  i was out hunting a few deer for the challenge and had slowed to line up a shot.  i heard the cat growl, hit A like crazy but was too late.  the horse dropped, i hit the dirt with my rifle and couldn't get a shot off before he hit me.  down in the dirt again i went, and with a lunge, he killed me before i could get up. 

i'm going to kill that cat next time i see him.

Stare at the dot for twenty seconds (or at least from the purple version into the black and white one).

And?

If you focus on the dot for the duration of the pink mode, when it goes black and white your brain fills in the right colors. It's tricking your brain.

Neat!

that is cool.

i lasso'ed a dude off the carriage he had stolen.  it was pretty cool looking, and had i remembered to do so, i should have dragged him along.  i needed the wagon though for the mission. 
6659  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Saddle up! The Red Dead Redemption impressions thread. on: May 20, 2010, 07:59:53 PM
It is possible to outrun the law, but you need a good horse, a good lead on em and a good read of the land ahead. Otherwise it's just best to go far into the desert and just killin em where noone will see the bodies.

I highly recommend a trip out to thieves landing. The bandana and the lucky rabbits foot are cheap and useful   I was annoyed after losing. Shooting challenge (the birds were so far above my head I couldn't aim high enough and couldn't get any higher in time) so I donned the hood and got my money back.

Hark, I can confirm that the lethal range on the shotties is pretty short, as we saw last night. I had an outlaw on a balcony and peppered him with the double barrell without killing him until the 5th shot. 
6660  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Buying used is bad news on: May 20, 2010, 06:13:20 PM
i buy used when i am not sure of the game i'm getting or have played it before and sold it and get the itch to revisit it.  i would have picked up odst used for the halo beta if i hadn't had a ton of other games to play. 

as for the whole online code thing, i was afraid it would happen once ea started doing it for all their games.  just a matter of time really, but in line with their policy on shutting down servers for older games.

the sherriff wanted the payback for them giving him the limp.  

i found the religious daughter from the train.  she should be hogtied and brought back to town, crazy nutjob.  you aren't going to get better lying down in the desert, unless you want to go meet jesus yourself.  

it is odd about the multi-part stranger quests ending the way they do.  seems kind of odd to go out to check something and not have to report back.

i do love that you can get multiple stranger quests and keep them going all at once.  that's a real nice improvement from gta 4.
6662  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Saddle up! The Red Dead Redemption impressions thread. on: May 20, 2010, 03:55:23 PM
hell, shooting men on their horse is fun in any mode.  i took the second bounty alive and was on my way back to town.  watching them fall back and hang from their stirrups never gets old.  like headshotting cops in gta 4.

i've decided not to intervene in the random "dude chasing other dude" moments as i've now lost a bunch of honor by shooting the wrong guy.  

side note, i really need to make sure i've got the right weapon equipped before trying to save anyone.  i saw a woman getting chased by coyotes and tried to lasso the damn things.  she ran out of ground to run on, as they say.  oops, my bad.  they then attacked me and dropped my horse.  sad, but thanks for the meat.  it was odd, but after a later failed attempt to duel some random, i got the same horse back.  after the first one died, the next was the darker wild horse i had tamed the night before, so i thought horse death was more permanent.  man, i wish you could check your horses the same way you check them in mp.  hard to tell which is best.  same problem with the guns, but at least those you can check in the gunsmith.

doing the part for the bollards outfit, i haven't been able to clear either checkbox despite riding all the way around the town.  the tailor is still MIA, but i hope he shows up later in the day.  

it's hard not to blow off the rest of the day and play instead.  stupid work.  
6663  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Saddle up! The Red Dead Redemption impressions thread. on: May 20, 2010, 02:13:31 PM
I found a few outside the ranch between bonnie and armadillo. Never found more than two at a time though. Not like coyotes at all. I was able to get the coyote sharpshooter challenge in about a minute after i killed the last rabbit by that same ranch.

Haven't had any of the issues with horse wrangling or horseshoes. Got every horse so far on the first try and the ringer in my first game to win it. It helps that I also got that done for the outfit.

Looking forward to more today.

Damn fine game in both SP and MP. Had a lot of fun with the gang. SP has a real immersive feel to it and some great missions which should appease anyone who's tired of the "go here, kill X" quests. Even those are fun, but the life of the world is in the details, and you get a great sense of this on the alternative missions.

Just unloaded the few pieces of DLC that come with the PS3 "special edition" (AKA preordered regular edition) from Gamestop on eBay for $40.

icon_lol


Holy cow.

When you do something like that, do you put up a minimum bid, or just see what it goes up to?

Saw two sold before mine, one at $20 one at $40.

Put a minimum bid up there for $20 and a buy it now at $40 for those impatient types. Only took ten minutes.

I love preorder bonuses <3

is it worth it for a first time seller?  between that and the fact i got rdr from gamestop for $45, that pretty much pays for itself.

once I'm done with RDR I'm finally finishing this damned game.

That's probably going to be what I end up doing too, I have no idea what I was thinking starting this a mere 4 days before RDR, Alan Wake, and Prince of Enriched Uraniam.

probably because you are crazy.  why don't you start up oblivion and ff13 for the trifecta of big-ass-time-sink games.  biggrin

that's why i asked how long nier was before bothering to pick it up.  even though i wasn't able to get it finished before rdr hit, i got a hell of a lot closer than i would if i went back to fo3.  i still have the last 3 expansions to do, half the side quests and the last third of the main quest to finish up, nevermind the little stuff you can do.

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.
