This game is going to pwn my life

antexit, Sunday, 28 March 2010 13:40 (nine years ago) link

This game is going to give meaning to my life.

no turkey unless it's a club sandwich (polyphonic), Sunday, 28 March 2010 19:48 (nine years ago) link

This game probably won't affect my life much but I'm looking forward to it.

EZ Snappin, Sunday, 28 March 2010 20:13 (nine years ago) link

chances of me not going outlaw immediately upon starting this approx 0%, with rounding. the old west is not the kinda place to be a good guy imo.

aarrissi-a-roni, Sunday, 28 March 2010 20:15 (nine years ago) link

I always play moral choice games as a good guy with a cruel streak.

no turkey unless it's a club sandwich (polyphonic), Sunday, 28 March 2010 20:17 (nine years ago) link

I am officially mega-psyched about this game

antexit, Monday, 29 March 2010 12:17 (nine years ago) link

this looks a lot better than call of juarez 2. wish i had a ps3.

sonderangerbot, Monday, 29 March 2010 12:34 (nine years ago) link

Why do people keep saying ps3? Is this an exclusive? Do third-party exclusives still exist?

antexit, Monday, 29 March 2010 12:53 (nine years ago) link

Def not an exclusive. I'm already preordered for the 360.

Mordy, Monday, 29 March 2010 13:00 (nine years ago) link

uh i just picked that up in this thread somehow, you're right obviously and i need coffee. good news!

If I get this when it comes out, it's just going to totally take over every free second of my existence, right?

Convenience Fish (snoball), Thursday, 8 April 2010 20:35 (nine years ago) link

Pretty sure I'm going to spend hours just wandering around doing side missions.

no turkey unless it's a club sandwich (polyphonic), Thursday, 8 April 2010 20:36 (nine years ago) link

"go on a gentle hunt together"

am *really* looking forward to this.

problem chimp (Porkpie), Thursday, 8 April 2010 20:38 (nine years ago) link

i am so so pumped for this. if this game doesn't absolutely rule i will never allow myself to dream again.

aarrissi-a-roni, Thursday, 8 April 2010 20:44 (nine years ago) link

The good thing about this coming out in late May is I don't know of a single other game that is coming out till September or maybe October that I have any interest in, so if it lives up to the videos, I should have plenty of time to get the most out of it.

Jeff LeVine, Thursday, 8 April 2010 20:48 (nine years ago) link

also near my birthday; boosts the chance that I might actually get this game

congratulations (n/a), Thursday, 8 April 2010 20:49 (nine years ago) link

have thought exactly the same jeff

aarrissi-a-roni, Thursday, 8 April 2010 20:50 (nine years ago) link

if i do get this i think i'll have to resign myself to not finishing it or seeing 'everything', and just look at it like i'm going wander around deadwood for an hour or two. otherwise it might drive me insane.

"go on a gentle hunt together"

If your group is anything like the guys I used to game with, that'll last about 30 seconds into the first dispute re:loot. Then it'll turn into Reservoir Dogs, Wild West style.

Convenience Fish (snoball), Thursday, 8 April 2010 20:54 (nine years ago) link

oh and if multiplayer games can be customised to only allow knives and dynamite as in Lucasarts Outlaws, then this should be fun fun fun

Convenience Fish (snoball), Thursday, 8 April 2010 20:56 (nine years ago) link

this looks great, but i think i'll have to wait until i finish off lost planet 2 and smg 2

jeff, Thursday, 8 April 2010 21:12 (nine years ago) link

shameful - I forgot about Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Sin & Punishment 2

** Each NPC follows their own routine and way of a life. For example,
one spend all day working in a blacksmith, then at closing time head
off to the saloon for a couple drinks before going home.
*** NPCs will converse with each other
**** You can converse with NPCs yourself
** NPCs can hold grudges. A man you beat up in the saloon may come back later with a gun.
** NPC houses can be broken into and robbed
*** NPCs store possessions in boxes and trunks in their houses.
** NPC towns can be wiped out and made into ghost towns
*** Ghost towns will revive in 2-3 in-game days
** In the wilderness rarely a minute passes without seeing some indication of an NPC
*** NPCs play an important part of free roaming, through random encounters
**** NPCs can be found doing a large assortment of things, from
ambushes to gunfights to hostage scenarios to simple things like
sitting around a campfire telling stories of Marston's earlier exploits
* Bank Robbing
** Initiated by having a gun drawn in a bank
* Dueling
** Can't duel everybody (like old women), but you can duel other gunslingers

** The World is, in total, roughly twice the size of San Andreas
*** The World is split into three large regions, each larger than GTA IV's Liberty City

etrian odysseus (cozen), Thursday, 8 April 2010 22:28 (nine years ago) link

maybe i shouldn't get this game, just the thought is overwhelming

I'm getting kinda GTAIV pre-hype flashbacks here. I remember reading one article which said hey, in multiplayer, if you like, you and a buddy can just go for a drive and listen to the stereo and have a chat. Somehow that sounded amazing to me, but did I ever do it in game? Well course not, cos it would've felt ridiculous.

"Gentle hunt" is having a similar effect, it just sounds great to me at the moment. But will I ever do it? Hmm.

JimD, Friday, 9 April 2010 20:53 (nine years ago) link

I thought the same thing, but a ramble around a huge peaceful landscape with discernable goals that impact your MP profile is different than driving around the same streets you're already sick of from the campaign, doing nothing

antexit, Friday, 9 April 2010 22:40 (nine years ago) link

I am pretty sure I will be a lone wolf in the multiplayer lobby, not a roam-in-packs guy.

no turkey unless it's a club sandwich (polyphonic), Saturday, 10 April 2010 00:02 (nine years ago) link

you and a buddy can just go for a drive and listen to the stereo and have a chat

you can't do this in gta4 iirc. the stereo part that is.

this looks to be a more zen like experience, to truly roam at last

sonderangerbot, Saturday, 10 April 2010 00:15 (nine years ago) link

This looks so rad! haha my little brother is going to hate me for dominating the 360.

two weeks pass...

"We have just over 500 characters who all have names, family members and jobs," said Josh Bass, head of art."You can see a man at 7 a.m. in a Mexican market manning the chicken stand and at 6 p.m. he'll go over to the local pub."

"The morally ambiguous cowboy is the perfect protagonist for the style of game we make," observed Houser. "Sometimes you can be the hero, sometimes you can be the bad guy, and sometimes while you're deciding what to do, a bear comes out of nowhere and eats someone."

I think this might be up there with Witcher 3 for me - just so cathartic and immersive.

On the other hand, I met my brother for a drink last week and he told me he got sexually assaulted in this game. I won't go into further detail but it was fairly graphic.

FernandoHierro, Thursday, 14 February 2019 07:57 (seven months ago) link

That happened to a friend of mine and he went back to see if it would happen again but the NPC isn't interested in you any more after the first time.

Elitist cheese photos (aldo), Thursday, 14 February 2019 09:27 (seven months ago) link

Yeah my brother said he went back and killed the guy in some elaborate manner.

FernandoHierro, Thursday, 14 February 2019 10:13 (seven months ago) link

my wife got knocked out and picked up in a fireman's carry by some rando other player (presumably an 11 yo boy) but she pressed the Die button before they got wherever he was taking her. The Die button seems urgent and key.

kf: i don't even want to know.

with the polar vortex and feb snowfalls i've been quote-unquote working from home quite a bit the past month

goole, Thursday, 14 February 2019 17:48 (seven months ago) link

also a lot of racism online, no surprise: https://www.theverge.com/2019/1/15/18183843/red-dead-online-black-character-racism

after dipping my toe in the water in both GTA online and RDR online, i have learned my lesson and will never participate in a rockstar game's online mode ever again.
