Saw a Red Dead Redemption advert on TV for the first time last night, it came on during 'The Outlaw Josey Wales' with Clint Eastwood. There were so many similarities in that movie to RDR from the scar on his right cheek to a travelling salesman pitching his 'cure for anything elixer'. I highly recommend watching this between now and release day!

Great. smile.gif

The Outlaw Josey Wales has been on tv a lot recently. My wife now yells at me..."We just watched that!"

the gametrailers preview on spikeTV was pretty sweet... it's up on their website now... there wasn't anything new to discuss but then again, i think R* has released everything they planned on releasing pre-game... the reviews upcoming are the ones to worry about when it comes to minor spoilers... there was a lot of visuals though to get you into the outlaw mindset...

a little over a week to go!! i haven't been this excited over a game since GTAIV biggrin.gif... hell, i'm more excited about RDR than i was about GTAIV... which is why i might be attending my second ever midnight launch... my only other was GTAIV biggrin.gif...

i have "the wild bunch" at home to watch... i rented it through netflix... i plan on watching a few westerns via netflix, and watch a couple of the ones i own leading up to RDR's release... you gotta set the mood, ya know? the proposition, unforgiven, 3:10 to yuma, fistful of dollars, good bad ugly, etc... i hope AMC does a western marathon next week... if R* were smart, they'd sponsor something like that...

bOnEs, you are so right about setting the mood and anticipating this game! I think I'm especially excited about RDR not only because I believe R* is improving on everything I loved about GTA IV but because John Marston is even closer to the archetypal protagonist that I want to be! We're only a few days away now from total immersion in a still lawless and still untamed, though rapidly shrinking frontier. I'm so cocked, so locked and so fucking ready to ROCK*!! Jumpy.gif

No, you have to post something epic in the Asylum that'll be remembered for several millennia, and I mean something epic and original, not some fucking rickroll.

Anyway, assuming the game arrives a day early like EfLC did i'll be getting it on the 20th. 10 days! (possibly.)
bOnEs
man, i am sure glad i don't live in europe... listening to the americans talk about the game two days early would drive me bananas... i also updated my sig art to represent my next few months of gaming... i love the new format i've been using on my sig art too biggrin.gif...

when should we expect the onslaught of reviews? it's getting extremely close to that time...

Been 2 already, expect a multitude on Monday. Seeping through this week too. Most of us Euries will sign off until the 21st once you guys get it, I'm honestly glad I'm getting it on Friday and not Tuesday, I work from home man... I'd get nothing done. I'm not in school anymore, Release date for me isn't just OMG WANT NOW... I'm trying to do as much as I can at work so I can have some spare time for next Friday.

Enjoy it though, I expect some cool-ass ideas for when I sign back on Friday with my copy.

Where did you pre-order? I pre-ordered in store this time around, as I can drive now.. My game store is like a 5 minute drive, and it's not in the City center, there's 4 main stores in the City Center that will be feeding most peoples preorders. Hoping for a midnight launch, but not banking on it.
bOnEs
yea, two leaks but, i assumed that we'd see another 10 or so this week... i don't think they'd wait until the day before release because, major gaming sites are actual influences on sales... i am sure R* will push IGN into publishing their's sometime this week...

Well i'm not that impatient, besides I haven't read any of the reviews or watched any of the trailers recently, just forgetting about it for a week. It's not that hard.

I pre-ordered from GAME.co.uk, (much to GLC's annoyance. ) It's much easier cause I can't be arsed to go out just to buy a game (even this one.) EfLC arrived a day early, and it came at 9:45 so I had all day Thursday (my day off work) to play it, i'm hoping the same will happen again this time.

Those Pictures my god sir have tickled my fancies, you shall not be forgotten.

Sadly the GameStops around me don't do much for midnight releases and i have finals that week so i doubt i'll be doing a Midnight launch party.

i'm the same as you, viceman... for the most part, i'm fine with getting the game tuesday morning, or after work... but, there's something about rockstar's games that make me contemplate midnight launches... i've only been to one, and that was GTAIV... and here i am, once again contemplating going to another R* midnight launch...

i think my reasoning behind it is this... the limited editions are in limited supplies... so, if i am one of the first one to get it, i can ensure that i will get the soundtrack... and i really do want the soundtrack...

i watched the wild bunch last night... that was an awesome adventure with some dark humor mixed in... and it's probably the best representation of RDR... this too is set at the turn of the century, in 1912 i think... they see their first car and stare at it in amazement... the mexican general gets a machine gun as a present and damn near kills his entire village (quite the lol moment), and he looks just like the general R* created for RDR... and a former outlaw is tasked with hunting down his former partner, while the former partner is looking for his last big score before he rides off into the sunset...

what a great movie and it really sets the mood for RDR...

This article will just be the challenges, there's more news on the DLC modes to come yet, and the last part of the map, and a few more bits I'm forgetting... There won't be any more news after next Tuesday though (not sure if you're Euro or not) cause NA gets it on the 18th (who am I kidding, you knew that already).
