    I think we can all agree that it's perfectly acceptable to murder Herbert Moon every time he comes running out screaming his own name.

    When murdering some character is entirely optional and provides no benefit whatsoever, and people do it anyway, and fantasize about doing it in a crueler way than the game allows, then things are weird.

    I think you're getting your point across, but I think it just wouldn't work from a storytelling perspective unless you retooled a lot of the story up to that point.

    I have a lot of fun with horse thieves. Sometimes I'll hogtie them and throw them over cliffs, or put them on train tracks, or leave them in an area full of wolves and lay down some bait (that one didn't seem to work though).

    Shooting people in the legs is fun just to see how Euphoria reacts. I love the crazy flips people do.

    Last night I hogtied a thief, took him to the river and dropped him on the slope. He slid down into the river with no honor hit.

    I pinky swear that we will not screw you.

    So a few friends and I discovered that you can just hop out of the map in FFA matches online and run across the world. We discovered this because the three of us decided to chase a random goat across the countryside, kicking it in the ass.

    The next match we went to a different city to see if the guns spawned (they don't) and had a big fist fight in the middle of that town.

    I still wonder what the guy who joined the match halfway through was thinking when he saw the messages about us knocking each other out and couldn't find us.

    I hope that this game does well enough to justify expansions to the investors/marketing. Riding around in free roam makes me realise just how little of the map I actually visited, explored and took in during my first story run through.

    I am torn between wanting existing likable characters - the marshals in armadillo for instance, or Bonnie - to make a return and having a whole new set in a different time period, maybe in the early days of the railway before Tumbleweed was deserted. I can't see many ponts in the story where it could interweave with another story told from a different narrator, as they did with the episodes from Liberty City.

    edit. My best horse thief solution was to tie her up and take her to Coot's Chapel to put her in an open grave. Unfortunately as soon as Seth's cut scene finished the grave was filled in and the woman was gone.

    Haha, that would have been a nice way to deal with a horse thief.

    I prefer whistling then capping them in the head in dead eye while they're falling. Although I accidentally killed my horse this way once. :(

    would someone care to explain if this has happened before?

    Does the social club website take a little while to update? I saw the credits roll today, but I have 56 of 57 missions complete, which I don't understand.

    I'm also missing 2 strangers, which will take forever to find.

    Man I'm kind of tempted to pick up a 360 slim and then Red Dead Redemption for that, but I already have the PS3 version.

    Are the graphical differences that great between the two?

    Not only does it take a while, but it's broken. My page shows no challenges or strangers completed and only partial outfits done.

    Then again, I think it requires the game to boot once after doing anything before the site will update. And I haven't done so since getting 100%. It's pretty crappy.

    I think it would be interesting to play as a rebel or a government agent for Episodes type DLC. Especially an agent, maybe your a new guy, and your tracking John Marston's actions Or maybe they could expand West Elizabeth and have a big part of the campaign there, or maybe your a double agent trying to bring down the Agency for someone, or maybe your trying to bring down the gangs once for all, the Walton Gang, Bollard gang, and the Native American gang (Not going to say the name because it might spoil something). Also haven't been playing RDR lately, been playing Bad Company 2.

    Game can be a little uncomfortably heavy handed on "GUBBERMENT :argh:" at times but I'm enjoying it a whole hell of a lot! It's slightly silly that they just up and give you one of the best horses in the game right off the bat though.

    Do different breeds of horses behave differently? I still have the stallion from that horse-catching mission for Bonnie, and the damn thing will not hold still. I have a hell of a time putting a bounty target on there, or getting someone off of the horse.

    The PS3 version lacks anti aliasing and applies a soft filter, so it looks a bit less crisp, and it places less grass sprites around the world. You don't see a difference unless you're looking for it, really.

    Actually, Blondie doesn't ever stop fidgeting. Well, eventually, but man that horse has a case of the nerves or something.

    For the Social Club Challenge, what does it mean by "Drag an enemy through the basin"? From one end to the other? Just though the main area where the shootout is? The fact that it's impossible to shoot while holding the rope makes it really difficult, and to go fast enough to avoid being hit means that the drag-ee gets brained on a rock before I get very far.

    Just drag a dude for like 5 seconds. It should fulfill the challenge.

    Just check your starngers against Red Dead Wikia. I was missing Love is the Opiate and Aztecs Gold. Knocked those out last night.

    Also, Five Finger Fillet is so much easier if you don't look at the screen. I just wrote down the sequence and focused on that. Soooo much easier.
