or... Grand Theft Auto: Wild West Edition would be more accurate description

anyone else get this the other day? i have it on PS3 if anyone wants to form a posse online

if ya havent played it yet, at this point i would tie it with san andreas as my favorite GTA type game, give it a few days to lose that new game stigma and it may change

guns, gambling, hunting, and just all out wild west with a online town setting to roam around and pretend your doc holiday.... whats not to love! :laugh:

I thought about picking it up,but picked up Darksiders instead just because it was on sale cheap....

*Darksiders Im not sure what to think its very identical to Gods of War and Dantes Inferno....

Single play 99% awesome, the Multiplayer is a bit broken lol.

I've played the multiplayer a little bit, it seems cool, but kinda confusing to navigate at first.

Open world games like GTA are some of my favorite games, and I'm also a big western buff so this game is right up my alley. I like games that have a lot of replay value, and this game has that. You could literally explore the map for months and keep finding new and weird stuff to do.

I also love how you can basically walk the path you choose and try to be an upstanding citizen or just go total outlaw. The mini-games are great, and it's actually fun to play poker, horseshoes, blackjack, and dice, but then in an instant you can be back in the wilderness and go hunting in an atmosphere that rivals that of the Cabela's hunting games. The dialogue is great, the scenery is great, and the gameplay is great. This is easily one of the best games of 2010.

i keep switching back and forth with the multi and single, try to play single player as a good guy for the most part, but other than unlockable gear nothing last in multiplayer so hit a larger town and play outlaw for awhile online after you log off you keep the xp and stuff ya unlocked but neutral again when ya log back on later (well neutral to the game, players might remember you)

fun thing i found out after being a outlaw with $4000 bounty on my head, i left town and was hunting and a 12 man posse with dogs came after me

i cant get over all you can do, seems like every few mission ya find a new game to gamble on (finger fillet, and liars dice was a fun change) or a new side mission or challenge to play, and just wandering around is fun (i got ate by a bear with a name earlier)

highlight of my day though was when i gunned down a Rockstar employee in blackwater online, walked up behind him and he new what was coming cause he turned and drew but my sawed off didnt required much aim at that range :happydancing:

Just something I thought I would point out...

Obviously you can get all the cheat codes online, but if you buy the latest copy of the newspaper when it comes out, and READ it, you will get a lot of the phrases that are cheat codes, as well as hints for the story mode.

The open world is great because of the randomly generated world events. I can't help but ride on a guy asking to save his friend from being lynched. Funny story was I could not get the timing down on my first try. When I got the second chance was when a guys wife was about to be hung, I nailed that rope and head shotted them all dead.

You guys on the 360?

im worried to use the cheats since i read it perma locks achievments, not that they are important to finish the game, but my obsessive nature makes me spend time trying to complete as many as possible :cry:

im on ps3 version, i have a 360 but opted for the ps3 version due to the bonus exclusive content (extra outfit, and gang hideout to take over in single player and extra challenges online) and free online since i dont have xbox live

It doesn't perma-lock anything, but you can't save while you use them.

In fact, the cheats are full of glitches. Most of the time when you turn the cheats on, they just turn themselves right off. It's kinda lame and weird.

Yeah I am an achievement whore lol, As for cheats I heard they only lock achievements until you disable the cheat. Then you can get them again.

The 360 didnt really have any good free bees for this one, I opted to get the Best Buy version on the 360 which came with a black war horse. Everyone I klnow who has both systems went Ps3 so far =/

I been real lucky with XBox Live, seems every time my subscription runs out I got some deal on resubscribing, I bought 3 months of X Box Live Gold for only 3 bucks.Now I bought another 4 months for 10$ which really only comes out too a couple bucks a month, nothing really for a hobby.

good to know about the cheats, now i have something else to try :)

as far as glitches have ya seen this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjJ9nRcOqEQ the twist ending was nice, no spoiler in it just a horse and wagon

only glitch ive had that messed anything up was a underground cougar that reminded me of "Tremors", couldnt shoot him through the ground, when he would turn direction a dust cloud would kick up from the ground, but he could kill you at will

i went with ebgame for the dead eye outfit does x2 dead eye regen, however i still dont actually have it since like the other outfits you still have to complete task for the scraps, but since i relized you can track the outfit pieces last night its a easy unlock il have it today

are either of you focusing on the main missions yet? i finally finished bonnie and part way through the marshals, other than that i keep running around doin side strangers and challenges, and only went back to bonnie cause i needed a lasso

I'm pretty deep in the main missions, way past the part you are talking about Jason.

I beat the game last night.

Definitely a killer story, can't wait for the add-on that's coming soon.

I won't spoil nothing, but the story has a great twist in the end. :wink:

Congrats! :w00t:

i finally met Irish in the single player (ran out of strangers, and need herbs and animals from mexico for challenges) so no where near the end of the story, but took a chunk out of the 100% completeion, the bounty hunter board now has outlaws named "???" :laugh:

multiplayer however im lvl 39, spent most last night as public enemy number #1 in between getting into gang war matches, im curious to see if at 50 i start over for legendary status, i really want the White Buffalo mount since i liked the old western where they hunted one with Charles Bronson

is anyone playing on a ps3, im all for forming a gang, would be nice to not be in a pick-up gang composed of foul mouthed 10 year olds, i met a 6 year old yesterday playing and thought to myself "heres some great parenting" as the kid threw together strings of curse words i never thought could be put in 1 sentence

Been enjoying the game, Rockstar always deliver and love the sandbox games.

Haven't gone online yet, just trying to complete missions.

Always good with great longevity.

That game looks pretty amazing and I've been hearing nothing but good things about it from the guys at my work. Usually when a game gets his much word-of-mouth then that means that it's probably pretty good.

I've been debating whether I should get a Wii or a PS3, but only want a Wii because they're eventually going to release a new Zelda game for it. But maybe I'll just get the PS3 now and worry about a Wii when they actually make a new Zelda game.

It really is awesome, especially if you dig the whole "wild west" theme.

No doubt that it's a Rockstar game like Grand Theft Auto with some very adult themed scenarios, but the gameplay is killer and the online standoffs are awesome.

I'm still rocking the Xbox 360, but I would definitely go with a PS3 over a Wii at this point. PS3 has so many awesome features and Sony exclusive games like God of War that its hard not to want one. The Wii is cool too, and I will always love Nintendo, but I've been burnt out on Mario for years and without a new Zelda game on the horizon it's hard for me to get excited.
