Yeah, in the podcast interview that Zeeshan810 posted yesterday it is either Jeronimo or Rob Nelson of R* who states, unequivocally, that while Marston will see automobiles (e.g., in West Elisabeth) that he is a died in the wool horse back rider and will NOT drive cars in the game.

On a different note, Viceman's point about radio stations has me thinking. Obviously there won't be radio stations but there is a soundtrack, right? So there must be mood music going on outside of town? I wonder if you have some control over the selection via the game menu?

Most probably. I can't see walking through the land with no music happening, even if it's just ambient. Although I will be turning it off as soon as I can to see what the world is like with no music.

Another great point, Asthenia. It may well be in our best interest to keep our eyes and EARS open when out and about - yikes! ohmy.gif

bit dissapoiinted that if what that podcast said was true, that he cant drive the automobiles, that sorta of things fine in an old game where they just simply dont have the space on disc, time to do it or expeirence to animate it, but rstar does and i think for me it would take away from the open world game if i cant get in a car and drive. lol

i disagree... i think that if you had the ability to drive, it would take you away from the experience of the wild west... seeing marston in a buggy honking the horn and driving faster than the horses would really ruin the experience IMO... it's a game-breaker the more i think about it... save the cars for GTA...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

Why thankyou, BAMF. I'm liking this bromance we've got going on. I think hearing will be a big part of it... Did you read the IGN articles I posted? In the General RDR Topic - take a look at The Hero. He talks about hearing gunshots off in the distance and hopelessly searching for them. I think once we get playing, there'll be an emotional tie to Red Dead.

It would be insane fun. That's a given, but bOnEs has good point here, and has anybody else noticed the running theme with this game?

John can't swim.
John can't drive.
John can't get it on with whores. (That is still to be confirmed by the way... and I actually think it might be in. Just a hunch.)

Why? Because John was never taught to swim, he can wade out to an extent... Because the first time John see's cars, is when he's with us. We experience it together... Because John is a married man, trying to win back his family in the game...

He's heart & soul, a cowboy. He knows about killin', and being a Cowboy. One of the guns blazin', last few of a dying breed.

If I could teleport, I wouldn't bother learning how to drive either! biggrin.gif

Seriously, I think R* wants to take this game in a different direction then simply being a Wild West GTA. Not knowing how to drive (not wanting to know how to drive) and not knowing how to swim are entirely plausible. Besides, if we could drive everybody would be bitching about how slow and clumsy the cars were. No thanks, no fun.

Now, I'm gonna keep my comments about whores in proper topic wink.gif

It was Jeronimo who talked about cars and John Marston.
