this game is insane it has good graphics and good gameplay



Gameplay

Red Dead Redemption gives the player a large, open world environment allowing the player to move freely. Players on foot can walk, talk, shoot, kill, ride, run, interact with the environment, and combat enemies with firearms. Different breeds of horses are the main forms of transportation. Swimming is not an option, as the protagonist John Marston cannot swim and will drown if the player ventures too far into a body of water (though he is able to wade where the water is shallow enough).
The open world environment allows players to choose how they want to play. Storyline missions are for progress. Along with the main storyline, players can take part in random events they encounter as they explore the West. These include public hangings, ambushes, pleas for assistance, and dangerous animal attacks. Players can also take part in optional side activities ranging from standoffs, gambling, and hunting animals for pelts and meat.
Red Dead Redemption makes use of a morality system where players have the ability to gain positive or negative 'honor'. Some of the ways to gain positive honor include taking an outlaw alive instead of killing him, or saving a kidnapped innocent. Negative honor can be attained for committing crimes including killing and/or robbing civilians. This works along with another system, 'fame,' showing and governing how people react based on Marston's honor status.

This is game of the year. I dont even see how Call of Duty Black Ops tops it.

Check this out...

June downloadable content for Red Dead Redemption

1. Its co-op (2 to 4 players)
2. 6 new missions plus achievements/trophies (the hunters will love to hear that)
3. Free

1 of 3 downloadable contents. The other 2 most likely will cost money. But I've paid for rockstar DLC with GTA4 without hesistation and wasnt disappointed. So we'll see what the other 2 DLC are. Adding to the story? Spinning off it with characters from this game? New weapons, missions, achievements, multiplayer game modes? Who knows but I hope they dont drop the new DLC until end of summer. Still enjoying this game.

played a couple hours yesterday. love this game. did a couple missions with Bonnie. Met her father, got my lasso and tamed a bunch of wild horses. Then later met this crazy old dude running scams. I helped him out and then got in a fist fight. I had to shoot this hat that this guy was throwing in the air, I'm such an idiot I forgot about my dead-eye for a little while and was just trying to shoot the hat out of the air and I couldn't get it I finally remembered my dead-eye.
Anyway, this game is too much fun .. .

I've been playing a ton and just did the Nigel West Dickens stuff last night as well. It's just an indication of how open the options are, because I finished the Bonnie McFarlane stuff a week ago it seems.

I'm trying to kill two cougars with my knife for my next hunting mission, but I can't find them for some reason. I've killed a few already, and I know they're usually up toward the mountains, but I ran around for a couple hours last night and found nothing.

Anyone know a good spot to find cougars? (And I know an expensive bar on a Friday night is an answer, but it's not what I'm looking for. I tried to google "Where to find cougars", and wound up looking at Milf porn for most of last night.)

I did the cougar challenge in the tall trees area. The area near Tanners Reach always has a bunch of them. Watch out for grizzlies while you are out there!!

Cool. I can't get there yet though. Do you know if there's some mission you have to beat to open that area up? I've going deliberately slow on the missions. This was actually the last thing I was going to do before I pressed on in the story. My next gathering mission is the Prickly Pear which I know I can't get to yet.

Yeah, you might not be able to get to Tall Trees until you finish Mexico. Tall Trees is associated the last area, a lot of Blackwater missions will send you out there. There are sometimes cougars scattered around the world, but that spot in tall trees is the only place I know they gather consistently. The cougars seem to be a lot more common at night, so you might try hunting then. Prickly Pear is mostly found in Mexico if my memory serves me.

Yeah, Prickly Pear is definitely in Mexico, it says it in the journal description, which I also still haven't opened up. I'm still stuck to New Austin. Like I said, I'm really trying to go slow through the missions. So I'm trying to dig through as much extra stuff as I can first. I wouldn't even be trying for the cougars if it weren't for the fact that I've seen them several times already. The always seem to be near the northern parts of the map, or on the mountain top on Gaptooth ridge. I'm doing a lot of gang hideout clearing, a ton of wanted posters, and so on.

Thanks for the tips though.

This is definitely a game that its good to take at your own pace. Its amazing how much time and energy went into the smallest details. I kind of raced through the main story, but now I am going back and completing all the challenges and random quests. I was not very satisfied with the ending, so I am probably going to replay the story and be evil instead of good to see if things change at all.

The multiplayer has started becoming more and more fun too, and the free DLC coop missions are only going to make it better. There are already some great hunting missions online, just finished a long series where you end up killing like 15 bears including one super beast.

I have been attacked a number of times by cougars at the Boar area of the map....north of the Ranch. Both day and night.

knifing cougars isnt to bad. what i usually do is shoot em once or twice with a shitty pistol so they get injured and scared, then just run by and slash em.

One of the later hunting challenges involves knifing a grizzly bear. that one is a little harder than cougars. bears arent all that aware of their surroundings so i ended up just sneaking around until i found one and knife it from behind to complete it.
