quick questions about the ending...is the game officially over when you go back home with the wife and kid? cuz i only 270 achievement points which is kind of low when you finish a game...
No. There's more to do after it. Though I would recommend finishing as much as possible before finishing the story.
Are you referring to coming home after you finish Blackwater?
Because even after you return home to your wife and son you have like 9 missions left.
And even after the game is done, you still can go around finishing up things ala GTA IV.
There is a missable achievement though.
Spurred to victory, you have to do 20 consecutive missions on the same horse.
I'm glad I heard about that one when I first started playing. It would've been a real hassle to go back and try to get that one.
The game isn't over until the credits roll.
ok good i wasnt sure cuz im currently doing these pointless farming missions for the family
Yeah you do a few of those before it starts to heat up again.
It's a game made by Rockstar, nothing is pointless.
I would even argue that the "pointless farming missions" are some of the most important in the game from a storytelling and characterization perspective.
Herding cattle is still annoying
I would agree, and I would add that it was very bold, and in some ways, necessary move for the game.
Maybe if you're bad at it.
I herd cattle like a boss.
But, but you dont get to shoot bad guys and steal horses and get drunk in the saloon while doing those missions, that means theyre pointless.
There will be a point soon that you think is the end, but there is one more mission afterward. The game is not over until the credits roll.
I finally finished Undead Nightmare yesterday, I just fell out of it when it was released and it took me until now to come back to it. It was pretty good, there is some definite filler in there and I'm having a hard time convincing myself to finish the challenges to get the unicorn.
Like a bawsss
I feel bad because I finished RDR and then downloaded UN. I played it once and haven't even touched my PS3 since, and that was about 2 months ago. Its not because it was bad, but simply because I was about to start school and now I have an internship and I don't want to get addicted to games until I finish the semester. Same thing with the 2 DLCs for GTA4, I downloaded them but never played them. At the same time though, its been hard to get into all of those extras after getting so attached to the original main stories.
The great thing about the GTAIV dlc is how they cross paths with the main story from the game. There are some interesting twists with how much impact the two main characters have with Niko's story that I found it very easy to get through them.
Looking back on this game, I still think it's the greatest game of 2010 by far.
bought red dead undead the weekend cuz i thought the story was over guess now i have to go back to the original red dead...
a strange thing with red dead..i bought it and really didnt like it found it very boring so took it back next day .
But i havent like one GTA game yet for the same reason.
I think that mass effect 2 is waaay better..and even unchartered although its not as complex.
Maybe i didnt give the game enough time to warm to but it take so long to get going i found myself bored too quickly.
just the shooting rabbits bit and wondering round town chatting to folk..very dull.
and the undead bit was monotonous too..resident evil 5 was alot better.
i know its not a popular opinion but i cant seem to get into any rockstar games...tho the graphics were great tho..
I'll agree that RDR starts off really slow. It takes a while to get used to but once the action starts its awesome. I guess it was sorta easier for me to get into because I had just finished playing GTA about a month prior, so the game style was really similar. The funny thing is I went and played both Uncharted games and Infamous, and it was hard to get back into GTA and even Undead Nightmare.
thats probably why i didnt like the game then due to the slow start...mass effect throws you straight into action.
I had to stop playing RDR because I started playing ME1 (now ME2). I really love all the Rockstar games, but like GT4 I guess the long game with too many things to do really do give me a game fatigue later on.
