This coming from a guy who hasn't logged in on his PS3 in like 2 months.

I've never been an online gaming guy - I've almost finished FF 13 which has been very disapointing

You don't need to be playing online games to log into PSN. What else have you been playing?

FYI, NSW finally got hooked on Fallout. He seriously played through the entire game, and all of the DLC, in like a week and a half.

Send me $50 and I'll join your posse. I'm quite invaluable at all these games since I seem to whip everyone's ass around here in online gameplay. Yeah, I said it, bitch!

Is Red Dead Redemption anything like the GTA games? I know they're both Rockstar, and those GTA games bore the living shit out of me, but I would still try RDR if it were different than GTA.

I enjoyed GTA4 for the first week or two I had it, and then got really frustrated with the mission structure and lack of saving, and was annoyed by the terrible shooting mechanics. I've probably already put more time into this than I did GTA4, and I'm still incredibly hooked. The physics engine and the format of how you acquire the "story missions" is the same structurally as at least GTA4 was, but most of the complaints about that game have been fixed or refined, and the general setting and overall game play ends up feeling quite different because of the period. For big "open world" type game, this is probably the best there is (and you know how much I loved / worshiped Fallout 3), and the most "real" feeling world as well. It's also far and away the best "western" game there's been, and the uniqueness of that setting really pays off in making it fun and interesting to play. This is one that you could possibly rent for a week to decide if you like it enough to buy. It's absolutely enormous game, and there's tons to do outside of just the main quest type things. I've seriously put a major amount of time into it already, and I'm only like 20% through the single player. It seems like the type of game to me that most people could find at least something they love in it.

Plus, you could ride in a posse with NSW and I over Xbox Live, and commit old timey hate crimes against both man and nature.

Awesome. Thank you. Maybe I'll pick it up one of these days. Is there horse thieving? Are there sheep? I'm part Scottish, so I like sheep. I can't help it. Don't judge me.

Also - is this a sequel to the other Red Dead game? I remember hearing that one sucked.

I haven't actually seen sheep yet, but there's pretty much every animal that would have existed in Texas and Mexico, so there may be some later. Yes, you can steal horses, but it's more fun to just shoot your posse member's horses in the head while they're riding them.

I didn't play the other one, so I don't know for sure, but I'm pretty sure I've heard they have no relation other than the name. I think Rock Star just bought the franchise name, and decided to use it for some reason.

I thoroughly enjoyed riding in the back of a stagecoach with my entire posse, then shooting one of the horses in the head and having it fall to the ground and get run over by said stagecoach

Haha, one of my douchebag friends did the same thing while I was driving the coach.

I got the achievement for hogtying a woman, putting her on the railroad tracks, and watching her get ran over by the train tonight. "Dastardly".

Messed up, but pretty funny to try to get.

I really hope you had no idea that was an achievement until after you did it
