This is pre-ordered, Alan Wake is going to wait a little longer.
Commented on 2010-04-23 05:51:56
I'd pick this over AW if I had to make the choice. Fortunately I don't have to pick ONE! HaaHAHAHAHAH!...

GTAIV's crappy shooting mechanics (which they reused for this game) ruined the video for me. :(
Commented on 2010-04-23 06:31:33
I had zero problems with the shooting in GTA4, so I have no qualms here. I'm friggin' giddy with anticipation for this game :D...
Commented on 2010-04-23 06:52:24
Cannot. Wait. Pre order ready to go. MW2 being sold to pay for it.

I can tell right now this game is so not going to play with as much organization and teamplay as these videos. 8v8? It's going to be seperated chaos.
And I can tell just by the animation and movement its very similar to GTA=( too bad.

Well granted, GTA has tdm, dm, ffa, etc. You can play in a team, but seriously I don't know 8 people who would play this, let alone tolerate GTA style play mechanics in multi. So I would more than likely have to be PUG side, i.e. HELL.
Just a bit disappointed by those two things.

@crookedmind:

Don't really know what you mean; 8 people won't play this? The online will be much more organized than GTA4, as you can clearly tell from the video, and there are ALOT of people waiting to play this game. Not everyone found the play style of GTA as annoying as you did.

Also, from reading previews, the gun mechanics and character movement have supposedly been improved quite a bit since GTA4.

cannons! this game just gets better and better in my eyes...hopefully there will be a way to turn off the aim assist though...

just noticed during the clip at the 45second mark, does the guy get shot and then shoot himself in the head?

No you look like you're made of monkey!

I can't wait for RDR. Everything I play seems disappointing compared to this!

My thoughts exactly. No doubt it'll be one.

I'm sure there will be. Just like it was in GTA4 when you were hosting the game.

Well waiting for the game doesn't mean shit. I'm one of those people too, I'm going to buy it.
But I just don't see myself relishing in the multiplayer. I think they could of done a lot better with the handling of the characters, controls, etc than GTA style mechanics.

I'm not sure how to elaborate any more than what I said about the 8 players. If you're relying on Editing in a video, and 'set up' scenarios, to display the games features and make it look exciting (which is why they make them to begin with) - then of course you're going to think the multi will be organized as such.
But I'm telling you right now, it isn't going to be unless you have 7 other friends who want it to be. Simply knowing Rockstar, and judging from the past, it's not hard to predict what the gameplay is going to be like multi.
Yes, the type of variables, the cool things you can do with the guns and firing, looks neat. But you cannot ignore their track record with multi games doesn't matter who you are. GTA 4 multi was dead 1 month after.
All I'm saying is I hope I'm wrong and they fucking astound me. But my gut feeling tells me the multi will be a one trick pony that will become boring after a few weeks.

Which ever, it's your right to disagree, this is just how I feel.

GTA 4 multi died because free roam was a case of everyone fucking around and never wanting to do organised modes, at least in RDR they have made some of those organised game types an actual part of free-roam (hunting, AI gang hideouts etc)

I'm playing GTA-IV Episodes of Liberty City on PC atm (oddly enough with a Xbox 360 controller as that feels more natural to me for the game, and with the autoaim missing mouseaim totally doesn't matter) which is getting me in swing for RDR when it comes out next month.. Cannot wait to play this.. To bad it's not on PC though as that would improve graphics a lot (GTA-IV looks much better on my PC aswell), but I guess the Xbox 360 version will still look good enough..
Commented on 2010-05-06 13:21:00
This looks so fucking much better than i thought, and i thought it would be ZOMG awesome....
Wow.. The horseback fighting made me think of Mount & Blade, seems as fluid and well done.

And the tiny things such as an animation when you run over a pickup (the gold thing).
ANY other game would just have magically removed the gold and added a super mario "PLIING" sound to indicate that you picked it up, never bothering with an animation for that sort of thing.
