    Please don't let this be sh*t.

    Please let it reenact great scenes from western movies.

    Please let it have some Ennio Morricone...

    Yeah I agree, must be non-arcade, there's so much fantastic culture and life to simulate from the old west, I've had 1,000's of ideas in my head for years to use in an open world Old West game.

    The original was quite good on PS2. I really enjoyed it. Hopefully this will be good too.

    Hope they get it right here also. Some pure "Man with no name" atmospherics and all the fantastic cliches of the genre tied in with a nice sharp engine.

    Heh would be great to either be able to be some hotshot gunslinger...or some broken down drunk who can't shoot a sissy gun to save his life but is deadly with a Remington

    Wishful thinking but imagine multi-player mayhem where you have your own posse of miscreants...enjoy some multiplayer games like bank robberies or jail-breaks....Take part in some "Quick and the Dead" style shootist tournament.

    I hope i'm moseying on up to the game shop to get me a decent game this autumn.

    Oh Jesus!!!! On saturday, we win at Bernabeu 2-6. Today, we reach the final in Rome. And now.... THE BEST GAME OF ALL TIMES EMERGES!

    You can see the all new trailer at IGN. Splendid. If only the script resembles those of Sergio Leone, that's for sure my favourite game of all times. I love it. Thank you lord for this times. Praise may be your name! Aleluyaaaaa!

    I wonder if it's going to be more like a Wild West GTA or like the first, an over the top arcadey shooter

    I really hope this is as good as it seems. I've been waiting forever for a decent Wild West game. I know Rockstar will do a good job.

    Looks good to me

    Although i cant see how they can make it like GTA seeing as there is very very little in the way of transport, which wont be fast either and mainly only small basic towns not big populated city's

    Re: Red Dead Redemption - Old West GTA Stylee!

    In the Old West you had foot/horse/carriage/train/paddle steamer plenty of options and some much faster than others, they could also implement fast travel although I'd prefer they didn't, the Old West is filled with stories about the events that took place during travelling, being ambushed by Indians/bandits, attacked by wild animals, things like that which I hope are included in the game. To accurately portray the Old West they must tell the stories of the journeys rather than just doing this at point A. and this at point B.

    As for the sizes of towns, yes there weren't massive cities like we see today, but there were still decent sized towns in the Old West, Tombstone for example had 3,400 people in 1880.

    It would be good if you could become infamous and towns shut up shop and people stayed indoors when you were paying a visit leading to some battles with the sheriffs :)

    I would like that if you become infamous and get near a town, you are shot and you are weak against turds of people. I wouldn't like if you can go to town and put it down to ashes and kill anyone. You should be outnumbered and moved out of towns.

    Re: Red Dead Redemption - Old West GTA Stylee!

    I don't mind of course....but what's the odds we get some good old Injun mojo or some ancient Incan curse kicks off somewhere down the line.

    Part of me would love some proper Pale Rider/Jonah Hex style supernatural-ness lined up in the game...so long as it wasn't that in it's entirety. No twists where everyone turns into Zombie Outlaws please...but it would be nice if they include some of the Wierd Western Tales type mythology into the game.

    Of course i want pure Sergio Leone stuff overall but do you think they might include some "Preacher" style stuff?

    Fingers crossed this is one of those nice surprise releases with some tlc lavished on it. Full of every steenkeeng stereo-type the Western genre has ever spat out.

    Re: Red Dead Redemption - Old West GTA Stylee!

    All the "old indian magic" could easily be done in "dreams" of John Marston. Easy as that!

    Relating multiplayer, I would just love some co-operative mode as "Wild bunch", where you and your friends have to resist being shot by everyone until you die.

    And one duel similar to "Once upont a time in the west", with an harmonica playing!

    And of course, I still want some Calexico tracks into the game.

    I'm too excited about this game, so I better :COAT:
