Re: Red Dead Redemption

After playing so much GTA IV, I keep waiting for the damn cell phone to ring.."Niko, my cousin! How'bout we play some darts?" So far, none of that nonsense. This game rules.

lol...the whole virtual friend aspect of GTA4 sucked imo. "Yo Niko, its Dwayne, will you be my friend? I got no one in the world after gettin out of the joint. You busy? I see, I'll just go back to being depressed and staring at the wall." They'd really make you feel bad for not hanging out with them. And when you finally agreed they'd demand that you not only pick them up, take them home, and entertain them in between, but pay for everything along the way. Worse than some of my real life friends.

So glad to hear that's gone from RRR, still waiting on my copy in the mail.

lol...Dwayne was a terrible friend. Such a Debbie Downer. I regretted sparing his life early in the game. I hope your copy arrives soon.. It's a lot of fun!

Lol... Yes many of the friends are annoying, but having a friend like Brucie Kibbutz makes it all worthwhile.

Be. Genetically. Superior.

Re: Red Dead Redemption

So I put in some good hours on this over the weekend. Can anyone explain the Dead Eye System to me? It seems kinda of dumb.

Re: Red Dead Redemption

While I understand myself to be well in the minority, I just can't understand what's so great about this game. It may as well be called GTA: Wild West. There's not a single thing new here other than setting. Same clumsy dated combat, same boring errand running, same yammering NPC's. While the graphics are nice, everything else in the game could have been done on PS2 (and was in fact!) Rockstar seems oblivious here to the tremendous advances in games since GTA 3: whether it be the evolved combat of games like Call of Duty and Gears of War, the freedom and player agency of Fallout, or the interactive narrative of Mass Effect. Maybe I'm being a debbie downer here, but when IGN starts giving out 9.7's and people start saying things like one of the best games of all time, I feel the product has to be better than OK. As it stands right now, firing up the box and taking Marston out on the plains feels like as much of a chore as chauffeuring people around Liberty City was.

I am going to have to agree here a bit with you. Now that I have moved farther into the game it has become a bit repeating with all the tasks. I actually liked Batman better then this game.

Batman started slow then really picked up. RDR started good and has now fizzled for me.

I am thinking either Mario 2 or Alan Wake as my next game.

Re: Red Dead Redemption

I hear ya. I wouldn't say it's one of the best games of all-time, one of the best of the year maybe.

And I agree it's basically GTA in the Wild West, it's certainly not a game changer. Still, the change of scenery to the Wild West is what makes it enjoyable for me.

There are seriously times where I am like I have to ride all the way over there for a mission. I rather clean the house or go cut the lawn. At least on GTA you had the fun of driving a car to the spot. I know you can use the camp site to speed it along but that seems dumb to me.

For the long trips you can take a stagecoach or train.

Personally I like riding horseback across the map and shooting whatever, whoever, you come across along the way.
