    I really need to play this game. It's great to see Rockstar supporting the title so much. Free co-op DLC and now this. Awesome.

    I might get this game now. Curse the fact that it has nudity in it.

    Great to hear. I haven't played the game in a few weeks, mainly since none of my friends play online anymore, but now that Free Roam will be monitored and fixed, I might just play on my own.

    Lol. I would kill people just to fight the NPC's that would be pretty fun IMO.

    Now if only they'll do this for GTA 4 that'll be great (as i dont have RDR yet) because these modders coming in just to freeze everyone's game is getting rediculous.

    what about bethesda software? i refuse to buy a single ps3 title by them, they don't support their products. all of the "game of the year" editions have fatal crashing problems.

    its about RDR, not about the PS3 that actually has the most cheaters (at Modern Warfare 2, at least)

    They're probably either invincible or difficult as hell. If anything NPC posses will just add more thrill to the game, there's nothing like stirring up a bunch of ruckus with your friends and then shooting everybody who tries to stop you.

    As you can see I started playing the game, it's a shame none of my friends have it yet.

    On the contrary, I've actually only once experienced a hacked game in PS3, and all it was was a speed hack. The game's just incredibly unbalanced, those are things infinity ward need to fix and a few other things.

    i have never heard of that glitch? that is a new one, that's why i hate online so much, i stay offline, even on RDR i play offline only, there are far too many cheaters spoiling the fun for everyone.

    If you're talking about Fallout 3, it's a terribly unstable game. That being said it's the only bad thing about the game. It has bugs, glitches, and crashes across all platforms.

    After finally tasting the RDR multiplayer all I can say is hoorah. The game is fun but there will be dicks who do nothing but essentially spawn camp you, whether it be to be a dick or for experience points. NPC posses will just even things up and make the game more fun. Odds are if you're getting into enough gunfights against other players a posse will go after you and your gang. Adds for more shootouts.

    I wish more than anything though they'd fix the spawn system and help balance the weapons. I mean the game is still fun but when you die, you'll spawn terribly close to where you were last killed and the guy who just killed you can kill you again. And some weapons (notably the High Powered Pistol) seem terribly overpowered.

    Great multiplayer still.
