I cannot wait to dive into the world of RDR!

I was recently starting Niko's story over again for the third time (having played the main story line and each of the DLCs through twice -- in the last two years -- talk about replay value!!) and I was overcome by a feeling of nostalgia as I played through the early missions of GTA IV. You know what I mean, when your biggest problem is Vlad, when Roman's taxi depot is still humming with business and when a pistol and a baseball bat is still all you need to grub up a little cash and show certain unfortunates who the boss is. I stopped and took a deep breath, shot a few rounds of pool with Jacob and knew that it was still all in front of me!

I for one am going to savor the early missions of RDR. I'm going to take a deep breath, soak in the scenery and get some good practice in on lassoing SOBs, skinning critters and killing what I aim at.

I'm going to cherish what meager innocence and simple challenges RDR has to offer in the early missions because I know that sh*t is gonna get ugly real quick!

ROCK ON!!

Yeah, R* tends to drop you into the shit without warning. I was leisurely rolling through the missions having no problems, and all of a sudden shit got real and I was getting shot at with SMG's in an area with no cover. I made it through, but damn. I intend to get my bearings and really learn the control scheme before I get too deep into RDR.

I thought this topic was gonna be some noob rattling on about HOW WILLZ WE STERT TEH GAIM? GIV ME MISSION DESKRUPTIONS NAO LOLone!

Thanks for proving me wrong - I recently replayed TBoGT, this time on my PS3, and you hold a great point. There's no other feeling in a game that matches the beginning of a Grand Theft Auto (and hopefully Red Dead now, too)... Even starting as Niko, in all the shit he was in when he first got there... It all felt so innocent compared to what happens later, just another immigrant in a strange country in a bit of trouble.

I deleted you from my friends list because I was tired of looking at your inactivity.

LOL!! I was wondering if anyone would give me a hard time about my avatar! No, I'm a middle-aged, heterosexual, slightly debauched, white, male. I just figured, what the fuck, might as well have a hot avatar!

The other thing about early missions during your first go through is that you have not yet learned where the hidden weapons and quick money are at!

I will never forget stepping out of Niko's safe house for the very first time. I was flat broke so I figured I'd mug the first pedestrian to cross me - just like back home at the Johnson's house in SA tongue.gif - and I proceeded to get my ass handed back to me by one of those Russian fucks! From there I turned LEFT and only realized after it didn't matter any more that the easiest way to make fast money was to whack people as they stepped away from the ATM just a block in the other direction! LOL.

I anticipate a rough go with RDR. On the other hand, I am red dead certain some offer I can't refuse is gonna pull me away from another round of horseshoes and throw me into the thick of some sick mess! I just pity the SOBs once I get my bearings!! -- Especially on the second go round! thumbup.gif
