Red Dead Redemption has sold almost 1.5 million units just days after going on sale, making the game very prolific for Rockstar Games.
Good, now with all that money make us a new GTA game that dont suck. I'ma help you out. 80's, Miami, drug lords...lets just say Vice City but in HD!
GTA has gotten old.. and RDR aint that gr8 lets be honest
Ummm.... in your opinion maybe.. It is that great and A lot of people are enjoying it just as much it has bugs ya, but honestly I have not seen any that were that bad that is put me off the game. it's been my favorite open world game this gen so far and the most impressive.
EBgames, bestbuy, blockbuster, futureshop, wal-mart. No PS3 copies of RDR to be found anywhere. I ended up picking up Demon's Souls, Borderlands and Brutal Legend instead. I was going to grab Alan Wake but it's $70 cdn. I really want to give it a try, but I'm not paying 70 bucks for it. I'll wait for it to come down in price first. Most new games are between 40-60. Battlefield BC 2 was also $70 for some reason. Demon's Souls received Gamespot's GOTY and was only $40. That was an easy purchasing decision.
i actually really enjoy this game,even more then ANY gta.free roam is getting bit boring now but with addition of co-op should get interesting again^^ and darkride666-congrats on purchasing Demon's Souls!that game took over my life for quite some time:)
Its always mind boggling to me how take two manage to post losses and we hear about it so often, when rockstar are basically a cash machine for them. We hear about how GTA 4 generates 500m dollars on day one, biggest ever entertainment launch, and then how this will easily end up selling 5m plus etc etc Then take two will announce how poor they are and how much money they have lost.
Pish, screw Vice City, give me next gen San Andreas.
they always open much bigger than that but hey RDR can do no wrong. even if it buggy as hell it still gets 10 out of 10.
I don't think any of us know how to act when a game don't end in 2 hours;) Gg8 game R*! Still ain't beat it or even touched MP (close though:)
Lol Imma wait till this drop ^_^.
don't hold your breath
sometimes i wonder what DO some of you guys like...lol, dissing EVERY game...maybe it's time to put the controller down and get a new hobby...BUDDY Rockstar deserves the acclaim and sales...and i'll take a critical review over a Debbie Downer gamer ANY day...i can't wait to play a game one of you Debbies create...damn, i forgot...you don't know how! lol :)
for GTAIV either let down or annoyed the 360 got special treatment fanboyism ruining enjoyment of games : sad honestly no one can say RDR is OK, even from a design point of view. its a very complicated game with many levels of A.I and situation-set ups. if you don't enjoy it, fine, but to say the game is "sh!t" is just not fair =/
well said. bubbles to you.
The 360 didn't necessarily get special treatment. The PS3 version got Solomon's Folly exclusively I believe, right? Although the graphics on the 360 are a bit sharper, especially the grass textures which are terrible on my PS3 version :)
You should get a faster horse. The grass texture is a blur for me. I enjoy the hell out of RDR. It is up with GTA3 for me.
LOL that is 1 hell of a come back! BURNED!!
some people here don't even have 2 brain cells, so let them burn themselves, enjoy playing games and B happy about it while these fanboys or I should say "SHEEP" burn themselves, haters are always there, internet just show em to everyone I just read someone here talking about blu-ray dvd9 etc..., what in the blue hell is he talking about, infamous was on blu-ray but it doesn't touch RDR or even gta 4 in size gfx, scope, detail, length etc..... some people here are utterly blind, fanboyism has completely captured their 2 cell brains, don't you have some dignity\respect for your self hahah lol that is by the way Im dying to get RDR, it's banned in here, gonna get my copy (from private source) soon :) I can't fukin wait
While I agree with you saying that he is angry because of the 360 version I doubt the end result had anything to do with giving the 360 special treatment. RS fought PS3's hardware for the same amount of time as the 360's.
The game has achieved incredible popularity. You can start hating it now!
Game is good, but it certainly doesn't deserve the scores its been getting.
i wouldn't put it at 96...maybe 92 =P honestly i think its justified though its that fun =D and that beautiful, and it captures the wild west better than any game: win
It's definitely one of my favorite games in years.
Ok this will get me maybe 1000 disagrees from the Mario fannypacks but I'm gonna say it, MG2 gets 10's accross the board and RDR gets good scores yet funny how so many think MG2 deserves nothing less then 10 and yet some think RDR shouldn't even get 9's, NOBODY can even say how MG2 or why that should get 10's. I think MG2 is Fun and awesome because after all It's Mario, but how different Is that compared with MG1?, 10 across the boards? even Graphics?. As for RDR, that's a Huge open complex game, and D*mn it, it deserves every bit of praise and not be knocked down!.
I'm with you there walter! SMG2 > RDR? NO FVCKING WAY!!
yes it does , and now that it's selling way more than what everyone including the publisher expected , every bozzo is coming home to bash it .
Buggy game but still good all the same says it all.
Great game, bring on the new GTA Rockstar!
gonna buy this when i see price drop,no way that i gonna give 40£ now in this recession ;;..;;
if there is any game out this year that deserves full price it's red dead. I am not saying you should buy it for that if you cannot afford it. but I paid full price for it and don't regret it at all. I still have not touched the MP yet
a comment section better exemplify how shitty n4g is. There is nothing really to say, but damn what kind of community is this. A place about gaming where all the people hate the games, and hate their fellow gamer. I dont know who you people are but thank god most gamers are not like you.
True enough . This place is now even worse than 4chan , the difference being 4chan doesnt pretend to gather and post news . Maybe the laughable new 3 bubbles system is a blessing in disguise , and a signal that it's time to move on from here
True-er words have never been said. Its actually pretty ironic when you think about it. Its probably the best place on the net to get gamer news and the community is pretty ....well... u know.
good, solid game...i have not encountered too many bugs. the only one i have dealt with was when marston would not take cover.
i was part of that 1 million...at first i wasn't but now i am lol
PS3 version was heavily short shipped, which is why i assume the is so high in favor of xbox sales IMO, i think once the game supply issue has been sorted we will see close to a 3/1 in favor for xbox sales.
Not true. We have a stack of RDR on the PS3 in our store. Recieved another batch on Friday.
actually it is true,there were many shortages.here in the UK some retailers were out very fast,in Poland my friend had to wait one week after game came out to get it because there was no delivery of stock.
I just encountered a bug marsten grew vulture wings they were super-huge then it went away it was super fast it happend when i opened the weapon hud. And rdr is goregous , i love the atmosphere with the music sometimes its scary i get scared in tall trees.
What I want to know before buying this game is that is it like gta 4 (high reviews, repetative missions, no checkpoints) or are there actual variaty in the mission, and fun like the bank heist in gta 4, and checkpoint during missions.
I'm not that far into the game but there is definite variety to the game, some missions like the first one are spread into acts so you can save and pick it up again when ever you want. In some missions you can choose to kill someone or take them alive which has an impact on your game. Just by riding around the world you can come into random event like a gang of thugs robbing a stage coat or someone being lynched, etc. The game doesn't do a good job of telling you how the mechanics work though. I'm playing a good guy in the game and in the first town a guy was about to kill a prostitute, naturally I took out my gun and shot the guy before he could kill her and it told me I did a bad deed but I gained some morality IIRC. I re-rolled my save and waited for a similar thing to happen. Instead of using a gun I just decided to punch the guy, this time I didn't gain anything, the prostitute ran away screaming and the guy took out a gun and killed me! Just a heads up though, when you get the game do all of Bonnie's missions first before anything else since the weapons/tools you get from her give you more variety in terms of how you can handle the missions.
I would recommend buying this game. I have it for the PS3 and I'm really enjoying it. The graphics are not the best that I've seen, but they are still brilliant and stunning to look at. The game plays great aswell. I have not encountered that many bugs, only slight framerate issues and a very minor amount of pop-in, but it does not really affect the game that bad in anyway. There is a nice variety of missions in the storyline that I have done so far, but the best variety comes in the form of side activities. You can hunt animals and sell the meat and skins, play cards to gamble, horse-racing, cattle-herding, taming wild horses, and so many more. I like the random character missions that require to help someone out in a situation. You earn money from these side activities which makes it more worthwile. You see a lot wild, crazy random stuff that does not invlove you as you go on your travels, like someone getting robbed, hanged, or being attacked by wild animals and you have the choice to intervene! And the wild animals - it's so incredible to watch all these wild animals roam the wilderness in the game. But beware of the dangerous animals like cougars, bears, wolves and boars - you can encounter them at any moment in certain areas within the game. This just adds more to the excitement. I would'nt even rent it, I'd buy it! By the way, the PS3 version is fine, dont listen to those silly 360 fanatics that wanna put it down.
Gonna try this game soon. It looks solid, based on a playthrough I'm watching.
which is why insomniac went multi, their games deserve millions of sales and the barely reach a million 6 months after release
