Sweet, thanks. I assume the US retailers would be good for Canada too?


That's what I was wondering after I posted the link. I'm assuming that they've just lumped the whole of North America in with the USA. I imagine it would be the same.

Wow, GTA is like my favorite game series, this looks awesome. But I'm not sure if I'll buy this right away as it's a game you pretty much play once.

Will be a nice change from the GTAs which are pretty much all set in modern times.

Any chance any store offers 3 or 4 week rentals that are cheap enough compared to just buying it? I'm guessing not, but I thought I'd just ask. :P

Most places give you 1 week, but usually it's not enough for a game like this.

:lol: I'm cheap.

“Unbelief is as much of a choice as belief is. What makes it in many ways more appealing is that whereas to believe in something requires some measure of understanding and effort, not to believe doesn't require much of anything at all.” - Frederick Buechner

“My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust?” - C.S. Lewis

Something I can't figure out about this game. Is it mission after mission like GTA, or is there more opportunity for free exploration and do what you want, when you want?

I realize that GTA you don't have to do mission, but I would like a game that's more free to do what and when you want.

I have a Rogers Video down the street from me. I pre-ordered it and I went and saw it today. It is sitting there with my name on it.. attached by sticky note. But I couldn't convince the girl to give it to me :( If only I was single- maybe I could have asked her out and then got it early... :D

This game looks truly amazing. I quite pleased that we finally get to see a different type of game from Rockstar besides the GTA series. I love the whole idea of being able to play as a hero or an outlaw as well. It seems that the player is given quite a bit of freedom and many choices that have different results. I remember reading a preview where the writer was playing the game when he heard a lady screaming from a house. He went to investigate and killed all the bad guys. Thinking everything was okay, he opened the door to let the lady out, but didn't realize that there was a guy with a gun right beside her. Since he was not able to react fast enough, the guy killed her.

Anyone know of any trade in deals anywhere? I don't really have the cash to buy a game right now, but I got a few I could trade in. Uncharted 2, God of War 3( it would be awesome for a keepsake, but Ill never play it again..I always keep games but never touch them again ), Killzone 2, MGS4, etc. ?

I know Rogers had a deal for God of War 3, that's how I got that.

Some places will let you trade in 2 of your games for one new one and God of War 3 is one of the games you can use to trade in. Check Rogers/Blockbuster.









Anyone know how much trade-in value this game will have in about 3 or 4 months? I know it's hard to guess but based on previous similar games?

Not to mention if he did get the girl to sell it to him, the $30,000 fine that comes with it for selling/renting something before its release date.

Been playing it for the past 2 days. Absolutely friggin awesome. You'll notice a lot of the same mechanics as GTA 4 (such as player movement, wagons=taxi, aiming assist, saving fastforwarding time etc) but there are a lot of unique elements in it too that will make the game very enjoyable. And as always, Rockstar appears to have done a remarkable job with the voice acting and character/plot development. Many unique characters you will meet and do missions for, and they're either creepers or have that wild west touch to them.

Bought this at 10 and have to stop now, need to go out for a bit :D

Can someone explain how to catch a bounty alive? I know you're supposed to shoot them in the leg, but when I walk over, they just start shooting me. I want to try and catch some alive for more money.

Also. I played some poker. It mentioned something about being able to cheat, but the message disappeared before I could fully read it. Does someone know how to?

Yeah you have to go buy it at some town or something now. When you go to save your game at a bed, check the change outfit feature, it'll tell you where.

This game is sweet, GF will be pissed she's lost me to a video game in the short-term lol.

Play Bonnie's missions until you get the lasso. Then when you do a bounty mission, kill all their goons, then run up and lasso them, or play it safe and shoot them in the leg, then lasso them. Hogtie them, call a horse and take him back to the station.

Beware tho, some bounties have their posse come after you after you hogtie them.
