I am under the moon......................now

Thank you for the pictures, thank you for your service, and rest assured that at our Memorial Day BBQ we'll continue the annual "Toast to Kato."  Probably 20 or 30 times.   wasted

Cheers my friend.  And thanks.

Thanks Pete, and like my Russian friend Geverich would say, "I may not be smart, but I sure am physical.....just like Bear."

Short list of actors they're considering as the new spidey

I don't really like any of them except for Jamie Bell.  He may be a little older than the rest but he's definitely a good actor.

+1 for Jamie Bell.  Seems like a great fit for the new spidey IMHO

Awesome pics. Thanks for sharing. Just curious how your Russian friend is doing. Still in the Corps or did his service help him get that better life?

He's doing fine. He re-enlisted for another 6 years so I think its safe to say he's a career Marine now.

What will not see if this game does well is clear proof that the public wants a Western.  There has been nothing but evidence to the contrary for years, unfortunately.  If it is good (and I hope it is) and does well (and I hope it does), it only proves that Joe Game Buyer wants good games
 
back tracking already i see.  If people werent interested in playing in the Ol West, this game wouldnt be and have been consistently on Gamespot most wanted for months,  preorders wouldnt be SO high that Gamestop would be doing Midnight releases, etc etc.  Youre assumption is simply wrong and you are one of those people I guess who just cant admit as much

oh well,  not to beat a dead horse,  but hey this is a western game thread.

UK reviews are starting to sneak out, 10/10  aint bad.

It's from Rockstar and they have a crapload of promo stuff going on and a huge following.  In addition it does happen to be a genre that isn't used often and any time a 'new to you' type game comes out people jump on it.  Many casual gamers haven't played RDRevolver or Gun, this will be their first western fix.  I just think you're being a bit shortsighted in assuming that it's success is going to be because it's a western.  It's going to be because it's a good game by a well known and very publicized developer that is in a theme that is not used very often.  In addition you're kinda being an ass about it.

And Hark should know, he's an ASSassin in most video games we play  slywink  HellRazors > Coaltion of CK  icon_twisted

So what's the consensus on this one?  I held off at the time of release due to lukewarm impressions around the net, but it's just gone on sale at Gamersgate and I'm tempted because it looks pretty. slywink

I would like to know as well, and the sale on this one makes it tempting...

Sadly this is the park I take my son to. The park is surrounded by three schools (one of them an upper class high school) Locals think it's some cruel practicle joke by some high school kids.

Gotta go 360 for anything with multiplayer.

Kato the "Kowboy" is of course in for the 360
