Occasionally. I got it the week it came out and went at it pretty hard. Now I'm in Mexico. It's pretty rough down there. Played online a few times and that was good as well. Gameplay wise it's only so so. Not the caliber of shooter of a Call of Duty but presentation and scope are both big wins. I'll be playing this game for a long long time.

Yeah, it's in my Amazon cart. And I'll get triple points on my Amazon Visa. Just not sure why I haven't finished the purchase yet.

I just keep thinking GTA 4 set in the Wild West. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing. GTA 4 was visually stunning, but I lost interest in it rather quickly. Once you got past the novelty of it, the game itself wasn't really all that special.

I know RDR is also a knockout visually... but is there more substance to it regarding actual game play?

SHIT!

I ordered it and it came today.

But I accidentally bought the Xbox version apparently!

Oh well, time to check it out anyway.

See you in a fortnight.

:shock:

I find it kind of boring.

I'm tempted to add all the cheats to see if that spices it up some.
