I like side quests as well but these ones seem to be all the same, like hunting for a bounty, stopping a guy from being lynched and things like that.

 

it's not like in fallout where you goto the fireant town or that place where they worship the big tree and such.

 

It's alright though, i think i'll just have to play it in bits and not non stop like i normally do. I have god of war III as well so going to play it for a bit inbetween

 

In the Wild West, people generally weren't worshipping giant, talking trees like :lol:

 

har har

What i mean is the side quests aren't much different to each other and the little random world events are quite samey/buggy

Been scouring town today trying to find a copy, eventually led me to argos who are texting me in "about an hour" to let me know theyve had a delivery

I'm never sure who do shoot half the time. End up killing everyone so I don't get a bounty. :icon_lol:

Failing that....

Finally got hold of a copy at asda today

 

played the intro bit on the ranch now, going to give it some proper time later tonight to form my opinion

 

reminds me of gun a bit

Got my copy on Monday, also from Asda.

 

Played it for a few hours, seems reliant on the tried and tested GTA formula, which for me is becoming boring.

 

I like it though, the online play has some bugs to iron out, especially the loading screen glitch which is vastly affecting my experience.

 

I'll keep playing it, and give my definitive opinion in a few days.

I must admit being brought up on Morricone the soundtrack isn't particularly great. It just lacks something that takes away a vital component of the game for me.

 

However, I am now streaming across my Morricone Western collection while playing the game. Words can't begin to describe how much this adds to the overall theme of the game.

How do you do that?

I agree so far though I am assured that the game comes into its own when it opens out

 

played a little online just going round on my own shooting stuff, had one game of freeforall style shooting, spawn points are shit, three times in a row I got popped down right next to someone who was waiting for someone to spawn and boom dead instantly again

I'm assuming they have set up a home network, and have connected to their PC via the Xbox Dashboard and then just played the music as you would normally on Xbox. I think it is pretty self explanatory - certainly I found it easy to do. If you go on your dashboard and go to the settings, I think it explains everything under "Network Settings".

To quote a wise man

 

Download TVersity and just press the main Xbox button while playing, then select your music source and it is the TVersity Media Server. Fucking ace man.

 

gotta be on a network like.

as I understand it, you aim for the guys head (or hand if you want the Honor and fame) and pull the trigger?

its all about the bars at the side, if yours is more full than his at the end you win, if its less then you lose

 

you get it full by aiming at key areas and pulling when the crosshair is white, so you can win by blasting his knees if you want but head and arm fill it better

 

I had a couple where id put it at chest and pull the trigger like nuts but id lose so I learned how to actually do it
