A number of us have shown interest in this game and a few already own it. Here's a place to share an fun/funny stories from the game. Are you planning on playing as an outlaw or as the hero? Personally I'm playing as the hero.
So far one of my favorite things to happen, was I shot a guy who I mistook for a bandit, and he turned out to be a sheriff. His two buddies chased me on foot for a good way into a mountain, and when I finally escaped, I got eaten by a mountain lion haha.

I went to Gamestop to trade in games to buy it.
He said "Did you preorder it?"
I said "No, I did not."
He said "Oh, then we don't have any left. This is why we tell you to preorder it. No one ever listens."
I said "No worries, I'll just go to Best Buy."
He said "They won';t have it. They will be sold out too. You should have really preordered it."

I went to Best Buy. Bought a copy of the many in stock copies they had (you know, because Best Buy anticipates people wanting to buy a game, and keeps them in stock to get them).
Brought it to the register. Three people behind me also had game. They all said the dude at Gamestop gave them the same reading of the riot act.

Went back to GameStop. Showed the game to the nerd behind the counter. Informed everyone in the store that Best Buy had plenty to sell.

I never understood "pre orderering." Fuck Gamestop. Best Buy has it. So does WalMart and Target. Its like they are trying to teach us a lesson by not having it. They just dont get my business. Dummies.



Aaaaanyway, some bandits rode into town and had a dude tied to the their horses. I shot them all.
And then when the dude thanked me, I shot him too.

Basically, its GTA, but in the Wild West.
As it should be, since it's made by the same people, Rockstar.

Its fucking awesome so far, though. I like it. A lot.

Whoever the associate was who you dealt with was not following what the company told us to do. They told us to sell into our preorders if we didn't have enough copies for walk-ins. That guy is a complete dick.

But basically the premise behind preorders is this: Companies track the number of preorders a game gets. The more preorders, the more advertisement they will have for that game, before it comes out and after. This is why there are preorder bonuses...developers want more people to preorder their game so the word gets out more. The benefit for you is a quicker and easier transaction for no extra cost, plus free extras sometimes. However, Gamestop should allocate more copies to each store so there are no problems like yours. Hell, when I opened the store today, we only had two copies of Alan Wake to sell to the public. That's bullshit.

Kind of like how I found a 120gb PS3 at a Target right down the road (who also had another 2 on hand), when the nearest Gamestop/BestBuy/Walmart that had one available was over 3 hours away. Not to mention that it was like $20 less.

On topic though, this game now intrigues me, and it may potentially be a cure for my PS3 boredom.

Add me, CIMT4L, and I'd be up for some free roam. There are a few other skachilleans I have on my friends list as well. I know hotsoup and Acoustic Bandit got the game.

Yeah, its retarded. But whatever, I got it down the street, and got Reward Zone points for it.

I understand the "free" bonus shit, but really, id rather spend the money the day of then pluck down $5 months in advance for a game, especially if there is still not guarantee that itll be there (as you mentioned that you were told to sell into your preorder stock).

either way, game is bad ass

Exact same thing happened to me a while ago, I think it was for Super Mario Kart Wii. I didn't go back and rub it in Gamestop's face though, good call.

This is the reason I thought Assassin's Creed was the stupidest shit in the world, and instantly wrote it off as a shitty game.

Note: I never completed the tutorial out of frustration. I don't need a tutorial step teaching me how to walk instead of run, are you FUCKING KIDDING me.

The difference here is Assassin's Creed actually is a shitty game, while Red Dead is not.
