I've still yet to play any video games with Interlanders, despite adding at least a couple of you on my brother's Live account. I fail.

I really dislike the GTA games....but this game intrigues me. Probably because i really just want to be in a posse.

GTA felt really repetitive whereas the missions in DRD are a lot more varied. Even the random crimes you run into on DRD are fun; I mostly avoided them in GTA. The story and the pacing are 100x better as well. So even if you thought GTA was boring, I'd still pick up RDR

NSW and I were discussing that yesterday while playing. Pretty much everything people found frustrating or annoying in the last two GTA's was fixed for Red Dead. The shooting and combat is great (finally), there are checkpoints in missions so you don't have to start from the very beginning if you die, the missions are fun and interesting, the world feels more realistic, its' far more immersive, there's much more to do, coop multiplayer is a blast, etc, etc, etc.

ENDING RDR Spoiler
 
I loved the way the game ended, beginning from when Dutch jumped off the cliff. Having you complete everyday tasks with your family for a while before the big climax was an awesome way to make you care about what was going on. Its nice to see a game company set up the ending the way they did instead of some cheesy montage cutscene. The very end when you hunt down the federal douchebag was pretty cool too.


Also, whoever did the voice acting for Dutch did a great job

You probably should note that your spoiler is about the ending. Luckily your first sentence didn't give anything away, and I quickly closed the spoiler box.

The pack will hit the Xbox Live marketplace and PlayStation Network on June 22, 2010. It includes six brand-new co-op missions and challenges. Additional trophies and achievements, as well as bonus multiplayer XP rewards will also be included.

Rockstar stated earlier today it plans to release a title update late next week to fix the game's multiplayer issues and bugs.

I'll be in Vegas when that drops....Scumbo, you'd better exercise some patience and wait for me to return before playing.

I can't promise that I'll wait, but I have a feeling that I'll have no problem playing through them multiple times, so it shouldn't be an issue.

Just saw this description of 3 of the 6 missions:

Quote:
Rockstar has previously announced three of the missions in the pack. More details are slated to come in the future via the game's blog.

* Walton’s Gold - Walton’s Gang has taken control of a mining camp rich with gold. Fight through the camp and load your mine cart with as much gold as you can carry and get out as fast as you can – Walton’s boys have rigged the place to blow!
* The River - Ride a raft down river, taking out rebel encampments along the way until you reach the rebel stronghold of Nosalida and a final epic battle for the town’s massive weapons caches. Watch out for Gatling gun-equipped enemy rafts.
* Ammunition - The Mexican Army has the town of Tesoro Azul under siege. Storm the gates under heavy cannon, Gatling gun and sniper fire to destroy the Mexican artillery placements.

The patch is going to fix the games multiplayer issues, eh? The biggest issue is all the assholes in free roam who spawn farm you while you're trying to complete objectives. Good luck patching that.

I'm down to wait for NSW on some (if not all) of the new missions.

I have such mixed feelings on the public multiplayer.

On the one hand, I like the chaos of competing against the NPCs as well as rival posses.

On the other hand, the immaturity of your human opponents is usually off the charts, and that makes things a tad less fun sometimes.

Yeah, if you cats can wait on me for just The River one, I'd be overjoyed. It sounds like chaos. Thanks, Deputy.

FROM ROCKSTAR:

“We are aware that there are still some of you out there experiencing issues with Red Dead Redemption, including multiplayer connectivity and getting the Mo Van Barr bounty. We are currently testing a Red Dead Redemption title update for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 that aims to fix these and other items. Due to the unpredictable nature of the testing and console manufacturer submission process, we cannot pin down a very specific date and time, but we do expect this to be released for download for both systems by the end of next week. We can assure you we are working with our partners at Microsoft and Sony to make this title update available literally as soon as possible.

Once again, we thank everyone for their continued patience and understanding. As a token of our appreciation for your patience and in gratitude to all the Red Dead fans out there, we are also planning on releasing the Expert Hunter and Savvy Merchant outfits and related challenges later this summer for free. Please stay tuned for more details on that – as well as on the Outlaws to the End Co-Op Missions DLC Pack coming for free later this month.”
