Default OT: Horse shyt and gun powder! (Red Dead Redemption)

I am so stoked for this bad boy to finally release! I am a big fan of Westerns and the GTA series. Judging by the early reviews and the videos, the Rockstar team should not disappoint.












Red Dead Redemption
Red Dead Redemption is a sandbox-style action-adventure western video game developed by Rockstar San Diego, due for release on May 18, 2010 in North America and on May 21, 2010 in Europe and Australia for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Red Dead Redemption is a Western Action-Adventure game developed by Rockstar San Diego, the spiritual successor to Red Dead Revolver. It is due to be released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on May 18 (North America) and May 21 (Europe).

Red Dead Redemption uses Rockstar's Rage physics engine, along with Natural Motions Euphoria character animation software.

Story

John Marston is a reformed outlaw in America in the early 1900s. When federal agents threaten his family, Marston is sent across the American frontier to help bring the rule of law. He must kill or capture his former gang members, including his old 'friend' and gang leader Bill Williamson or his family will pay the ultimate price.

Along the way through frontier towns, deserts, prairies, and mountain passes; Marston is given work as he explores the free-roaming sandbox environments. The game features over 40 different types of animals that can be hunted including cattle, bears, rattlesnakes, wolves, vultures, cougars, bighorn sheep and others.



Animals
Groups of animals hunting you in free roam.There are approximately 40 different animals that can be encountered in Red Dead Redemption, and any of the listed animals can be hunted. Different animals supply the player with different pelts, claws, meat and other resources with different values, which can be sold. Beware, killing some animals may not please their owners, or the townsfolk for that matter. One can assume that killing someone's horse probably won't be any better than stealing it, and may hold the same results.

The 40 animals all interact throughout the wild in a carefully crafted ecosystem. For instance, the player could be traversing the plains and see a herd of buffalo grazing, or while travelling through a forest, one may encounter a pack of wolves hunting an elk.

At this time, the known animals are:

-Armadillos
-Alligators
-Bats - Bat Wings
-Beavers - Beaver Meat, Beaver Fur
-Bighorn Sheep - Bighorn Meat, Bighorn Horns, Bighorn Skin
-Bison
-Birds
-Boars
-Bulls
-Chickens
-Cougars
-Coyotes
-Cats
-Cattle
-Deer
-Dogs
-Donkeys
-Ducks
-Elk
-Goats
-Grizzly Bears - Bear Furs, Bear Claws, Bear Meat, Bear Teeth
-Horses
-Moose
-Mules
-Pigs
-Rabbits - Rabbit's Foot
-Rattlesnakes
-Skunks
-Vultures
-Wolves

Hunting

Hunting plays a very prominent role in Red Dead Redemption. The player can hunt all featured animals for sport and money, but hunting may also be necessary for survival; many of the animals found in the world can easily kill the player. The hunting element of the game involves stalking, advancing upon the targeted animal, and finally making the kill. Animal bait can also be bought from merchants to attract various animal species.

Skinning allows the Player to make a profit from hunting. Skinning an animal allows the player to acquire materials from the animal, which include furs, pelts, meat and horns. These resources can then be sold or traded to merchants. When the player skins an animal, Marston can be seen crouching in front of the animal, he will then take out his knife and begin to skin the animal. Blood splats on the screen, confirming a successful skinning.

Animals are randomly generated in the wilderness, and can sometimes assault the player, his allies and the player's horse, requiring intervention. Marston will sometimes encounter scenarios where a Stranger will request protection from pursuing predatory animals.

After a kill, vultures will appear, opening up the sharpshooting challenge. Completing this and other challenges will earn you fame, and can unlock outfits for John.

Additionally, hunting enough specimens of various species will earn the player achievements or trophies.




Weapons

Weapons come in a large variety in Red Dead Redemption. They are essential to survival and are an integral part of everyday life in the American west. The player will be able to use a range of weapons including outdated manually-operated weapons and cutting edge fully automatics.

To an extent, weapons and ammunition are represented on the character model.

In Multiplayer game modes it is also possible by completing a set of weapon challenges to unlock a golden version of various firearms.

Other than the above, there are many other weapons the player may use. These include:

Transport

Players can utilize several modes of transport in order to move John Marston around the game world.

Available modes of transportation include:

Horses - Marston can buy horses from sellers or try and tame one from the wild. There are fast horses or stronger horses to choose from. The horse's vitality is displayed on screen.

Trains - A fee allows the player to quickly travel over long distances.

Stagecoaches - Stagecoaches are large enclosed carts, primarily used to transport people or valuable goods and are drawn by 2 or 4 horses. The player can drive the stagecoach, similar to the use of horses. Additionally, they can be hired for transportation and given the option of sleeping, allowing the player to skip the ride and arrive at his destination instantly.

Carts - Carts are drawn by either one or two horses, and are typically used to carry goods and equipment rather than people.

Wagons - Wagons are drawn by either two or four horses, and carry goods and people. Wagons come in a variety of shapes and sizes.

Rafts - Rafts are rudimentary floating platforms, capable of navigating waterways. Rafts are a central component of at least one gameplay mission.

Steamboat - Large river-going ships that carry passengers, supplies and goods. Unconfirmed if the player can utilize these vessels in any way.

Automobile - Automobiles were extremely rare, but pervaded the west, challenging the ubiquity of the horse.




Locations

Locations in Redemption represent the gameplay world and consist of three primary territories, each split into a varying number of constituent regions.

Within each of these regions, there are settlements, outlaw hideouts, major geographical features, ore mines, bridges, rivers, lakes, camps, outposts, railroads and much more.

The San Luis River runs between New Austin and Nuevo Paraiso; which then appears to empty into the Sea of Coronado. There are also lakes scattered throughout the frontier like Lake Don Julio, which is located in the southern portion of Cholla Springs.

New Austin
The New Austin territory consists of 4 regions: Cholla Springs, Rio Bravo, Gaptooth Ridge, and Hennigan's Stead.

Nuevo Paraiso
The Nuevo Paraiso territory consists of three regions: Punta Orgullo, Perdido, and Diez Coronas.

West Elizabeth
Little is known about West Elizabeth at this time.






Multiplayer

Multiplayer in Red Dead Redemption consists of multiple game modes, and allows players to play cooperatively or competitively through an online connection.

The multiplayer does not have a game lobby and instead starts out in out in Free Roam mode. From there, players can establish gangs with other players, or choose to participate in various game modes via an ingame menu or various entry points around the game world.

In competitive game modes gameplay begins with either a mexican stand-off in FFA, with all the players beginning in a circle, or a team face-off, with all players in their respective team's line facing the other team. There will be a short countdown, then a firefight will commence, allowing the remaining players to find a choice location (such as a sniping spot) to fend off their attackers.

Game Modes

Red Dead Redemptions multiplayer menu. Currently, these are the confirmed game modes:

Free Roam: The starting point of all game modes, places the players in the world of Red Dead Redemption without established objectives.

Gold Rush: A free-for-all game involving the collection of bags of gold.
Shoot Out: Deathmatch and team deathmatch.

Hold Your Own: Capture the flag.

Grab the Bag: A single flag version of Capture the Flag.

Cutting edge guns, glowy and looks like it's made from plexi-glass, and it shoots a 3 round laser burst and is totally Overpowered. Where have we seen that before.

I was just reading about this with my son in Game Informer....game of the year easily.

I'll wait till all you tell me whether to game it or not. I'll be waiting to hear unsolicited reviews - keep me posted.

I played Red Dead Revolver way back then, obviously Red Dead Redemption is miles ahead in gameplay than Revolver. I liked the Revolver game, I always wanted to play Clint Eastwood in a game, which is EXACTLY what the developers molded their character after.

GUN always got made fun of but I liked that one. Maybe it's just the Western fan in me but I enjoyed it. I guess if I liked that, RDR will knock my socks off.

This year is quite literally the greatest year for game releases in video game HISTORY.

Not only do you have stuff like Mass Effect 2, this, Alpha Protocol, Fallout 3: New Vegas, Starcraft 2, among tons of other top notch quality games.

Hell, even Nintendo is putting out a new Mario and Metroid game.

It's insane across the board.

In terms of overall quality of releases in a year, 2010 is seriously the best in video game history. I've not had to spend much money on games for awhile and this year is going to be brutal for me.

But this is Rockstar so I'd expect the PC version around Christmas time. They just want to maximize console sales first.
