I'm now at around 41% complete, which for me is pretty amazing on a 1 player game! (See my Xfire stats)

I've played around 14-15 hours to get there, so I guess another 20-24 hours should see me home. Taking bets on if I make it there or not?

I'm still enjoying it, but get annoyed when I'm trying to play when the sun goes down and I can't see what the hell I'm doing. Is there any other way to make time move on other than saving?

So, I'm almost at 60% now I'm still enjoying the storyline, I think the voice acting and the script are very well done. Normally I'd skip through it to get to the action, but I find myself listening to the inane chatter, even when I don't have to

There's a short story too -

I'm just downloading the HQ version, 1½gig for 30 minute video. Still, says it'll be down in 5 minutes

This game from your podcast sounds like it is a wild west version of fallout 3,

bullet time = VATS
mission structure is the same, in fallout 3 you have go here, kill this person etc but it also includes a huge open world you could explore if you were so inclined with hundreds of sub missions and things to do and collect.
honour system = good/evil reputation system

as i think fallout 3 is awesome and RDR sounds good, if it ever comes to pc ill be happy to snap it up.

So after about 20½ hours I've kinda completed it, although I'm still only at 74% compleye, I've done what I was needed to do. Now it seems to have turned into 'Ranch Simulator' Break these horses, deliver this grain, shoot these crows.

Does it get any better again?

Yeah? Have you completed it yet Pete?

Do the missions get a little more interesting again?

Well, I've left the missus and rode back out into the wilderness. I'm working on the Outifts mainly at the moment. I have all but maybe 3 now I think?

I finally did Flowers for a Lady, one of the first missions I picked up! Kinda funny ending to that one too.

Also made me laugh, I was in Theives Landing buying my Treasure Hunters Outift (I think) when some nasty chappie was running away with a whore over his shoulders. I hopped on my trusty steed, trotted after him and shot his legs out from under them both. As I dismounted and walked over I realised the whore had gone. Being on a bridge I thought 'maybe she fell into the water?'. I hogtied the guy, whistled my steed to stop it wandering off and walked to the edge of the bridge to see if I could see this slag. As I span my view round to face me, looking downward, I watched as my horse trotted up along side me and slipped of the bridge into the water!!! Never to be seen again!!!

Too funny.

Nearly as funny as when I was riding through a foresty area, a bit too fast, couldn't avoid one tree and rode the horse headfirst into it! I think it broke the horses neck and it instantly died underneath me!

I just finally watch this. Hmm... it's kinda lots of the cut scenes put together, with some extra stuff. It's okay, but ends a bit oddly. Probably not really worth a watch.
