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.

Getting the joke on an XKCD comic always makes me feel smarter.

the alt text on this one is perfect. Surprised he didn't go with 127 instead.

stormrise definitely isn't worth 7.50 though, unless they managed to patch in a control scheme.  space siege is ok, nothing bad nor great about it.  i played it a few hours and saw nothing outstanding.

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.

saving is the same as in gta with an added option.  you have safehouses with beds.  you can also save in the open by starting a campfire.

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.

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.

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? 
7057  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

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.

7070  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.
7071  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.
