our youtube channel got taken down please resubscribe to our new channel - http://www.youtube.com/Clou... Thanks!
I wonder if this will be any good, im not a big fan of western games. Ill probly rent it to see it i like it first
Wait.. what western games? There are like... 3 of them, lol. Western is a nice change of scenery from the modern, urban, and jungle that a lot of games are using this gen.
Totally agree with toaster. western games are a relatively unexplored area, mainly because of the fact so many people like Dave1351 are more caught up in stereotypical Urban settings or else the Middle East. I'm so glad Rockstar decided to take this direction with the game, feels like a breath of fresh air.
Oregon Trail, Sunset Riders, Red Dead Revolver, Call of Juarez, and GUN....Is all that comes to mind when it comes to western games. I feel good about Red Dead Redemption as it looks to trump every western game before it.
My thoughts also. All these people who are decrying western games don't really have too much to compare it to. Its taken years of FPS to build up a repertoire of games to compare one to another. If they said they didn't like the western genre in general (like movies/games/books etc) then that would make some small bit of sense as there definitely is a list of genre conventions or cliches' belonging to the Western that some people may not find attractive.
I agree. I love the idea of an old-west game. I think the reason they never caught on is because the technology didn't support enough "stuff" before now. In the old west, there really wasn't much to see--unlike an urban environment, where everything seems extra busy. But it looks like R* has really worked at making sure there's lots to do here. I hope they pulled it off.
Ever heard of call of juarez? that game wasnt very good. But im a fan of anything made by rockstar
Yeah...the single player with all the "howdy partner" and "darn tooting" cowboy vernacular could cause some brain bleeding after a while...like after 30 mins...The multi-player looks really good...not sure how the ole west guns handle but it could be worth it by itself....NOT the best clip....May rent or just wait till price gets to $30 or so....There are some great vids out, but they are put together so not really game play vids...
This will be my horse after 2 hours of me going on a shooting spree around local towns..... http://www.creepygif.com/im...
Ok well maybe 3 was an exaggeration. But compared to the countless number of games that use city and jungle the Wild West is different. And There are few western open-world games where you are free to move from one mission to another. GUN did that and gave the player a sense of freedom to go wherever you want to, do whatever you want and to, shoot whatever you want. Oh.. and Oregon Trail is not what that people think of when they hear Wild West. The gunslinging ranger that roams the plains in search of justice or the outlaw that defies the law and rides into the sunset with a beautiful damsel in distress. NOT Oregon Trail.. lol.
Agreed. Oregon Trail is NOT a western game, simply for the fact that there was no "West" until the Oregon Trail was run and the west was settled. If anything, the Oregon Trail is a prequel to the Wild West.
...but I am looking forward to just getting on my horse and heading out into the wilderness to see what I can see. I'll probably spend a lot of time doing nothing in particular but exploring the west and hunting. Still VERY excited and should've taken the day off like I did when GOW3 dropped but waited too late to put in my request :(
I have a tendency to do that with ALL of my open world games. Sometimes even before I touch any specific goals I will just walk, drive, fly, or whatever method of ambulation is supplied and explore the world. I love to see the little details and the interaction of NPC's in the world. GTA was always great for this, so I am assuming that RDR will just add to this pleasure!
Damn, they took that down fast! I didnt get to see it at all.
yeah the game is very addictive and fun though.
GTA and Clint Eastwood has a baby. Looks very GTAish tho
You can tell its boring from a 7min clip of gameplay with bad quality??? I wish i had your eyes /s
S-T-U-P-I-D !!!! How the hell you can judge from 7 min clip? -.-"
Instead of driving cars across towns now you'll get weird missions across teh map and you have a horse to ride. I'll pass for now.
What is so good about this game? I don't understand the reviews and praises its been getting. Someone please tell me!
Why don't you go to the official website and check out the videos. http://www.rockstargames.co...
What don't you understand about it? Games come out, people review them. You have never played it so you would have no idea. You probably just don't like the GTA series so you assume this game is going to suck.
I Been hearing allot about this game, Looks awesome and western to boot!, Got to check this out. Maybe you don't understand it because It's Western? how many Western games are there?
Wow 2 disagrees for trying to help someone, nice community we have here.....
ok..... What is NOT so good about it then, You tell us... What games do you think are better and why ? Name one game with multiplayer doing what this game does... Name the game with the same level of animation, physics, lighting - while being open world ( twice the size of San-andreas ) and still managing to have multiplayer ( co-op will be added later via DLC ) etc. There have been some great open world games this gen but most of them have been great at one thing and lacking in something else. Red Dead manages to cover everything and still do something none of the others have done well at all ... and it still manages to look gorgeous. How many other games have such "alive" organic environments. If you really can't see what people are loving about this game, then I have to wonder what do you love about any game ? Are you the type of gamer that only plays exclusives so you can look at the textures and particle effects for 8 hours and then say it's the best game ever ? If you don't like Western theme, cool.. that's understandable. But I guess I am in the same boat, I don't understand how someone cannot see why this game is going to be so great and why it does not deserve such high praise.
dark witness. +1-up
It's GTAIV with western skins. The cars are now horses. Same hype of GTAIV and now this. I think it will become boring faster than Wii. Reminds me of Assassins Creed and how it got boring fast.
you have the best euphoria engine iteration you have a massive world with constant action with or without your presence various things to do: hunting, saving people, hunting bounties, escaping bounties, saloon games, working with the law, robbing people, protecting a carriage/ hijacking a carriage, STORY MISSIONs, ONlLINE WORLD with your posse where you can: play matches, roam around to gether and hunt, mess around, race, do co-op missions, take down gang hide outs... and all of this with a great death animations and graphics: what IS there missing? SOME ONE PLEASE TELL ME
Pc gamer, eh? I'd join you too in the hating except I have a PS3.
Guess alot of people are ughh "Passionate" about this game. Ok ok, i just meant that i have not seen much of the game, such as good quality ingame footage, some action sequences etc. I do have a ps3 and PC, so that's not the matter here. I have seen written reviews but not any videos. Maybe I westerns arent my thing. Just like broke back mountain wasn't.... ok bad joke. I will defiantly look out for some VIDEO reviews so I can decide whether to give this game a try or not. was expecting a ton of disagrees lol, so thanks :)
Yeah you got lucky Viper. I said the EXACT same thing you said yesterday I was wondering what the hype was all about and I got like 9 disagrees and people telling me I'm "trolling"
Look brutal, shame the quality is low and we didnt really get to see anything :(. Wonder when the online review embargo will be lifted? I'm guessing Monday?
im still wondering if the horses can jump if my horse cant jump then i will rage
that the horses will automatically jump over obstacles, and won't run off cliffs, kind of like Agro in Shadow of the Colossus.
It depends on the kind of "horse". I read somewhere that donkeys can't jump anything and there are different levels of horses. Like there are sickly horses and then there are bad ass horses. But that might just be for multiplayer, but it stands to reason that the same would apply to single player. Also, I think the condition of the horse matters too.
Damn, I want my horse to be able to ride off a cliff, it would be so awesome just to see the animations involved.
You can ride your horse off cliffs. The previewer found this out the hard way.
thanks for the clarification guys. lol @ at the reviewer finding out the hard way. it's like a cautionary tale now! i loved in SOTC that you couldn't fall of edges. there are so many narrow walkways in that game, it would have been maddening to fall to your death, and have to restart at your save point, which was often cross country. hell, that makes me want to pop in the game and play it again while i wait for my copy of 3D Dot Game Heroes to arrive this weekend, and my copy of RDR to arrive on the 24th.
I heard theres a button you can press to make it jump if you want, but if theres an obstacle it will automatically jump it. I hadn't heard about some not being able to (like donkeys), which sounds likely
What I've gathered from reading comments over a number of videos and websites, is that the younger generation don't seem to get this game at all - which is no surprise really, because there's no space marines and aliens attacking earth in it. No aliens and no kids to ruin online multiplayer? Sounds like win to me!
i really hope you`r right
Seeing how people disagreed with you you must have hit a nerve LOL, so that means your right and I agree with ya.
not that im OLD, but this is quite a unique setting that many kids aren't used to "NO PLASMA CANNON AND SPACE SUIT? LAME"
Great observation there, all the more reason to be happy about getting this and enjoying multiplayer game for adults ! lol
It's not really for adults, altough I don't know what I count as to you's(Younger gen or what?), i'm 18 and this is my most anticipated release in a long time.
I'm 19, but I would classify myself as being part of an older more mature branch of gamers. Younger is that core 13-17 audience, which mainly consists of idiots.
Basing this off of other media...when is the last time that a true western movie was made. I'm not talking Broke Back...but more like 3:10 to Yuma (2007) which was probably overlooked. The horror genre has it's reboots (for better or worse), action flicks are a dime a dozen, superhero movies are all the rage, but Westerns have become somewhat of a ghost town.
I'm going on 16 but I think this game will be fantastic. I've been keeping my eye on it knowing I would buy it for more than 6 months now, and even though I'm in the UK and western culture isn't exactly big here, I still think the change to a western setting is extremely interesting. Not everyone in their mid-teens is immature and close-minded. Back on topic though: I can't wait for this game but unfortunately I'm going to have to. I have my GCSEs in the next few weeks and I'm forcing myself not to buy any games until I've finished. I'll be picking this up June 18th I think, I'm more excited by this game then I have been for any in a long time! I hope it doesn't disappoint. It looks great and Rockstar rarely disappoint!
i was watching this stream on jtv and the guy got banned by rockstar.
So I assume that that was a pirated copy, right? The game looks interesting but the video quality was complete garbage. I guess I'll find out on Tuesday. Silly disagreers, never the courtesy to say why. We really need the who? feature on the main pages. Below: Can you prove that he got the game early? And doesn't pirating the game allow you to get it early?
no got the game early
'Grand Theft Horse' ;-D
I mean, just a crappy 7 min video, you already giving judgments on games,ok then, sell your console and just watch 7 min crappy vids of every game this game is gonna be a beast
People before saying this game sucks play it first..... h3ll This game is not even out yet, so stop the hatin
I couldnt agree more...Im seeing alot of hate in here for this game too, the saddest thing is it just may be on the short list of GotY nominees for 2010...what can i say some people just doesnt like good games.
Sounds like a lot of little kids whose mommy won't buy it for them...
...just not when it first comes out. I'll probably wait a couple of months. I already got too many games that I haven't finished playing yet. Besides, I want to wait to see which version has the less buggy issues. I'm leaning towards the PS3 version because of the free multiplayer (I refuse to pay for LIVE). I'm also waiting for Lens of Truth to do a head2head comparison.
engine always looked better 360, Im expecting xbox version of RDR to look better, run better and have better AA like in gta 4 and MC:LA I could be wrong,maybe R* got it identical this time but be careful when you chose
The guy playing this didn't make the game look too exciting. Watching a poor quality clip did not help matters either. Also as others have previously mentioned it all looks to play a lot like gta or to a lesser extent Bully. Watching the clip unfortunately made the gameplay look somewhat familiar. I still have high hopes for this game as i find the western setting a refreshing break from the trenches of WWII or the grey corridors of a spaceship.
Trailers looked so promising. But this actually looks like GTA4 in western setting. To me GTA4 wasn't the game i hoped it would be. That's why I really need to reconsider buying this game. Renting is not an option as I live in a country where there's no game rental stores. Well maybe in Helsinki there is but at least not in my home town. And please, don't spam me with comments like "play the game first and pass your judgement after that!". I'm not saying that RDR is not an excellent game. I'm just saying that it's not under my radar anymore after seeing this gameplay footage. And I don't really have an oppurtunity to play the game first and then decide wether im gonna buy it or not as we don't have that game-renting -system.
May I say sir, if you dont buy this game based on a 7min low-quality video you are making a big mistake. Buy first, ask questions later...
it has elements of gta doesn't mean it will be gta in the west i for one like the fresh air of this game when they say open world they really mean it as the world in the game is really alive
GTA4 in Horses? That is stupid... why need to say that.. play the fu·$%"ng game and talk! Is Red Dead Redemption!... Like Fallout 3 is Oblivion without swords? LOL, so stupid statment. Im looking forward for this.. is more ambicious than GTA4
Unfortunately the vid has been deleted
Yeah that sucks, I wanted to see it!
Lol Take 2 has removed it Rockstar HATE any footage they haven't personally issued going out before a game releases.
