Donkey Lady? Cougar Man? Flying people? That's nothing. How about vigilante horses and... zombies?! Even more Read Dead Redemption Bugs
I want to lasso a zombie. =(
Looks to me like he simply lasso'd a guy, put him on the horse, ran away, and whistled to bring the horse up near him. You're wondering why your dog is looking at you that way, idiot? He knows you faked it too. Pathetic.
Exactly what I was thinking. Obviously faked. And a bad fake at that...
Yeah, I watched it and thought "where's this glitch then?"
I meant I want to be able to lasso the zombie that they found. =P
"The final result turned out to be a total piece of crap. Don’t get me wrong. This is a fun game. When it works. But it doesn’t seem to ever work. Red Dead Redemption has been so full of bugs that one has to really question whether or not Rockstar even cares anymore." Biggest load of shit I have ever read. The game WORKS perfectly fine, since when did Zombies, flying people and half Donkey half man become glitches that make the game not work? The glitches in this game effect the player in no way, there actually quite funny. For someone to say the game doesn't ever seem to work is just ignorant.
The glitches show off in this article are funny. And that's what the article is for: to amuse. But there are a load of other glitches in RDD that makes the game almost impossible to play.
the guy is an idiot, the game is hardly ever glitching out on me, so this is really a butt hurt idiot
Are not him...so stop making one fact everyone's for the sake of the comparison, he is dealing with bug, and you not...who has the rights to complain?... Anyway, the game is good but as well full of bug, never bumped with one as bad as that but it doesn't mean others can't...end of the statement.
Is it just me or most these glitches appearing on the 360 version?? The video used on this example is the 360 version. Look at 0:43 its definitely the 360 version all the glitch videos I seen so far are the 360 version... Seems we have a glitchier version here. I have the PS3 version and have no problems so far. This is not a fanboy comment or nothing I really have had no problems with the PS3 version...
I have only had 2 glitches in my 20+ hours of gameplay on the PS3 version. I had a floating piece of baggage from a stagecoach that just kept floating around the desert in Cholla Springs. I also had the door get stuck to my head as I tried to open it at Thieves Landing. Neither of these glitches repeated themselves. So, I don't know what to think. Either way, I am happy with my experience despite these tiny glitches.
reading your comment made me a bit more stupid since i read 360 version back to back and somehow i feel like dying, but hey 360 may have glitches but not to the point where it ruins the game, i have to seen someone pulling off a javelin glitch or any such that ruins this game completely
Sorry - PS3 version here, and I saw a carriage full of people without the carriage riding half way through the trail. Didn't affect my absolute love of the game though...
@T9X69: Well you're full of shit yourself. Here's some of the glitches I've seen so far (I've just completed the game, btw): 1. That 'infinite' loading screen that everyone is talking about. 2. The invisibale screaming hooker. 3. When I was in Mexico, a cart was turned over and some of the boxes were still floating in the air. 4. In one of Landon Ricketts' missions, the one were you duel the guy with the hostage (After you kill the German dude), the hostage was moving around the guy so much that I couldn't get a shot at him. She was moving around in circles...kind of hard to describe. 5. When Abraham was getting beat up by the soldiers, the guy that you duel with was turned the other way instead of facing me. I shot him and the game continued as if the duel was still going on. I could move around and free Abraham, but then the game froze and I had to turn off the PS3. 6. In the cutscene with John and THOSE people in THAT barn, the busted up character model of the PERSON from the previous mission with the bear was standing in the corner, looking around. 7. The game froze for about two seconds when I was riding into Blackwater. 8. Invisible bears and cougars. 9. Frame rate drops in nearly every town. Thieves' Landing being the worst. The game is riddled with glitches and some of them are game-breaking. Rockstar really need to get their shit together and patch the game. I hope they don't pull a Rebellion on us and send out a patch in a month. EDIT: I've just remembered another glitch: 10. On the last Mexico mission, a couple of Mexican soldiers where standing still with their arms outstretched. I could shoot them in the head, but they wouldn't fall and I could move through them.
You made it to Mexico? I thought the game was unplayable? I never said there wasn't tons of glitches, because they are. A NPC model that should be a person yet is a bear, does not make the game unplayable. It takes around 10 hours or so to even go to Mexico so if the game was to "never work" you wouldn't have made it that far. I've never had my game freeze, and only was stuck at the loading screen 3 times before the patch. After the patch I never got the infinite loading screen. The game is VERY playable, but has tons of tiny glitches. None in which are game breaking. I have the game installed to my HDD so maybe that's why I don't get hardly any glitches, but for ANYONE to say this game is unplayable MOST of the time, is down right stupid.
@T9X69: I never said the game was unplayable and if you actually read my comment, I said I completed the game. Also, you say your game never froze yet it was 'stuck at the loading screen'? I'm sorry, what? And what's this patch you're talking about? I've had the game since release and not once has it asked me to download a patch. Oh and if none of the glitches are game-breaking then why did I have to turn off my PS3 whenever the game froze? Everyone has the game installed on their HDD (On the PS3, anyway) and they still have problems/find glitches, so that doesn't make a difference. I suggest you stop pulling shit out of your ass...unless you like looking like an idiot.
I bought this game brand new and it had a freakin burn mark on it. LOL! Also, the game is a million times more buggy then GTA4. Oh well, its still really fun, especially when it works properly. I don't regret buying this game nota bit.
Some of the bugs are frustrating at times but this is still one of the best games this gen in my opinion. I haven't had this much fun since Uncharted 2. It's not quite on the level of U2, but it's a different type of game and good in it's own way. Even with the bugs it's more fun than GTA4. A must have game in my opinion.
but yes, the bugs do drive me nuts sometimes... Actually, come to think of it, I think the entire horse controlling scheme is a bit of a pain in the ass as well haha. Still getting used to it.
I'm not done with the single player yet so it's nothing that bothers me. I haven't encountered any noticeable bugs thus far apart from a freezing loading screen at one occasion. On the contrary I'm surprised over how well it runs for being a game with so many algorithms and calculations in play at once.
same here,occasional glitches like birds flying into mountain(throughout whole story i saw that maybe 3 times) are so minor that i don't even pay attention
Twice for me a hogtie victim had completely disappeared while on the ground, and that was after installing the patch. Also my horse constantly runs away from me after I pick herbs, skin animals etc.... whistling for him works though so it's not that big a deal. The game does far more things right rather than wrong though and I like it more and more each time I play.
Just more evidence of rockstar being lazy developers. Lazy porting it to the ps3, lazy with bug testing. Sure their funny glitches and by no means game breaking but it's stuff they are going to fix in a patch. This means it's something that shouldn't have been there in the first place. Any other game from any other publisher with this amount of error would be getting blasted by everybody and their mother.
simply because these are not game breaking bugs. These are graphical glitches period. I have experienced nothing that keeps me from playing the game. No freezing, slow-down, control glitches, etc. Sure, they probably shouldn't have been there...but at the same time most of these glitches that I have seen on youtube don't seem to be reproducible. I agree that they need to up their game on porting, but the differences are still not at the Bayonetta point!
Thats why I said they are by no means game breaking. Like I also said it just means their lazy. They've been making open world games for years and they shouldn't be having so many glitches in a game engine their so familiar with. Plus with a game that's been in development for four years or so.
i heard there has been a lot of freezing issues with RDR. I want to buy this, but now i'm hesitant.
It kept freezing on me every 30 min the first day I bought it (like 30 times in a few hours), but the day after it worked fine and it hasn't frozen on me since... So either they fixed it or some kind of miracle happened, but it's working for me now. If you want to buy it, buy it. It's a great game when it's working and you could always return it if you're having trouble.
.playing poker online and others
But i did see a guy on a horse get off...walk to a rock and take a piss.
I guy get off a horse...drop to his knees...and shoot himself in the head!!!
With those guys at rockstar I believe it..San Andreas has samoan gang members cussing people out in samoan when you ran into them...little things like this might not mean much to others but when you hear "se ufa" in a game its cool.
frankly it's inexcusable. game journalists either need to start holding developers balls to the fire or start reflecting glitches in their review scores. did any reviews mention all the glitches? it's not game breaking but it's definitely effing sloppy. you shouldn't reward sloppy work with stellar reviews no matter what the games intentions are.
Had a couple of weird things happen in the PS3 version: - when I request my horse, it sometimes falls of a cliff or drowns in the river - on the side mission where you have to bring back a stolen horse it often says "failed to deliever horse" even though I gave it to the owner - the square button for ride, pick up flower etc. don't show up sometimes -> restart of game required - occasional freezes, but only in Mexico - getting stuck during the loading screen, it won't continue to read the disc (happened only one time though) - major flickering, texture popups and framerate issues, especially in towns - in Blackwater the textures sometimes take forever to load. it kind of breaks the atmosphere having to walk in an almost white environment for up to a minute... Of course RDR is an amazing game, but it would even be more amazing without these bugs.
One thing I absolutely cannot stand about RDR is how the frame rate all of a sudden drops like hell when you enter a town, especially Blackwater. Goes to show how truly empty the vast areas are. Add a couple houses / trees, and the frame rate blows up.
I haven't experienced any glitches at all yet. I installed the game on my Xbox though, which might have helped.
install the game if you can, it drastically reduces load times. None of the few glithces i have encountered have in any way been game breaking, 97% complete by the way. Journalists need to quit feeding crap to the public, this game is amazing, GOTY for sure.
Most complaints have been from 360 ownera though only glitch i got is the DA outfit and invisibility
Too many bugs, choppiness and freezes for me to continue playing this game. It's a shame because I really thought that this was gonna be the first Rockstar game that I actually beat to the end before being frustrated by glitches and selling it. I've officially given up on this company.
I'm not seeing all these bugs and I've put maybe 40 hours into it the last week and a half. All I've had is a couple freezes, (one the very first time I loaded it oddly enough) and when riding up a hill I saw a deer running in the sky. Where is the story about the patch? I want to know what it does? Have you guys even got it yet, I did last night, but still no Mo.
I'm 10hrs and 33% in with no glitches so far. Maybe the odd mess up when killing gangs of outlaws and suddenly there is an innocent person pops up from nowhere, in the middle of nowhere and obviously gets a bullet or two. I then become wanted. Theres also picking the plants and sometimes you pick thin air but its nothing. I'd say considering this game loads very rarely, I'm impressed. My PS3 version has been pretty much A ok here.
Can we at least agree the game has glitches?
Yes, I think we call all attest to that. The gaming is amazing, but it's impossible to deny the bugs, and there clearly have been some major horror stories with them. I'm lucky that I've gone relatively unscathed so far.
