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 (thirteen 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 (thirteen years ago) link

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

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 (thirteen 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."

really hoping this at least provides me with more than an evenings entertainment, which all my recent purchases lately have failed to do.

bracken free ditch (Ste), Friday, 14 May 2010 20:41 (thirteen years ago) link

ste, apparently this is basically GTA: the western

I'm sure it'll have pigeons or some equivalent for you to find ;)

map.jpg is... intersting!!

how are the edges of the map walled off in game terms, i wonder? unscaleable mountains?

first non-square play area i've seen in a sandbox game

bracken free ditch (Ste), Friday, 14 May 2010 21:30 (thirteen years ago) link

somehow totally managed to not notice the existence of this game. Looks good.

Who wants to place money on when the first MAJOR bug hits

and will the bug be one of the npc's malfunctioning and stalking the player FOREVER through the game?

bracken free ditch (Ste), Friday, 14 May 2010 21:33 (thirteen years ago) link

xp, ah yes forgot about the trains

Or by boat. There is a giant river through the middle of the thing.

I wonder if they'll do DLC episodes for this too; hope so

gta makers have a knack of creating really great characters as well, this looks like no exception

taylory dayne (goole), Friday, 14 May 2010 21:57 (thirteen years ago) link

The thing about potential bugs and having 500 NPCs with their own personalities/routines reminds me of the Oblivion guys saying they actually had to scale back and limit the AI because of the problems it caused; they had a guy in a village work in a field at certain times of the day but somebody else in the village used his hoe or some shit and he attacked him for stealing it and the village ended up rioting in a way that broke the game

Despite the temptation to chop and change between horses (different breeds offer different levels of obedience, speed or stamina), there are benefits in sticking to a favourite, as in time you build loyalty which results in stamina bonuses, allowing you to run at full pelt for longer before tiring the horse. As you begin to clock up the miles together across, hill, canyon and stream, you form a bond - and this relationship between protagonist and transport, the kind alluded to in the great Westerns, is undoubtedly one of Red Dead Redemption's greatest successes.

cool!
