What happened to John Marston?

Great article on what happened to Rob Weithoff, the actor who played John Marston, and why he's been off the radar since. From Polygon. Must read.

Yeah good article. That's the side of LA you don't hear reported too often. I've known a couple of people who worked in the movie industry there and they are by far the biggest bullsh*t artists I've ever known. Unsincere, users of people.

So I finally saved up enough to buy the War Horse. I feel like in Hardcore, I help people mostly to get money. Whereas in Normal mode I felt like I was helping people just because I wanted to.

Got most of the outfits, with the exception of Legend of the West, Army Uniform and Reyes Rebel Outfit. The damned Master Hunter Challenges are holding me back on Legend of the West Outfit. I don't know how to play Poker and I can't find the damn horse for 'Love is the Opiate'. I'll find the horse and beat the players in Poker eventually. I did it once before too.

After completing Hardcore mode 100%, I'm gonna play Undead Nightmare once again. I didn't 100% it before.

I didn't know how to play poker until I had to bust everyone on the table in Blackwater. I'd probably get my arse kicked in real life, because the ai in the game has exploitable weaknesses. They are very susceptible to bluffing & if you know you have two good cards, like a pair of aces, don't make large raises to start or they'll just fold. You'll know if they have a good hand as they'll make large raises, so just resist the temptation to bluff & just fold. Learn how to cheat while wearing that elegant suit (forgotten the name), as this makes winning hands much easier.

Oh & everytime you go bust, dead eye every remaining player right between the eyes & then reload last save. This alleviates some of the frustration & stops you from smashing your controller to pieces.

Lol I did it by cheating a little with just one person. Got the 100% completion too biggrin.gif

I'm gonna play Undead Nightmare soon. I'll try to 100% it, should be easy considering I achieved 100% twice on the original.

Hello, I have a question about Red Dead Redemption.

I have Xbox 360 and I recently bought Red Dead Redemption GOTY Edition. Now, I have a problem that whenever I enter a Blackwater city riding on my horse faster, the textures of the buildings and roads are very bad and rendering really slow. Some objects are even missing and appear after a while.
I have my Xbox 360 for 2 years now, is it already old? Does anybody have the same problem? I am worried that the GTA V won't run so smoothly and will have similar problems. Thank you for your answers.

I had the same problem. It's even worse with the standard edition, where the game would freeze if you ride into Blackwater too fast. In the GOTY, the textures go away instead of abruptly f*cking up the whole game. I've had my Xbox 360 since 2010.

I also worry about GTA V having similar problems. Max Payne 3 runs smoothly on my Xbox, though, so I don't think I'll have anything to worry about.

Yeah, I haven't got problems with Max Payne 3 neither, but Max Payne is not an open world so..

Nope, it was a play on the hardest achievement in the game, Pa-Pa-Pa-Poker_Ace, which in turn is a play on Lady Gaga's song Poker Face.

This single achievement f*cked me up real good. But I'm glad I've finally finished it. Can't wait to 100% GTA V! biggrin.gif

I'm 9 Achievements away. I gave up on that sh*t... Natural Selection achievement is glitched for me, so I can't get them all even if I wanted to.

Are you shure? I also thought it was glitched for a while, until I killed a wild horse (since domestic horses doesn't count for the trophy) did you try that?

I've done that and it didn't unlock. I hear there are sheep in the game, so that's probably the problem. I found one in Multiplayer but never in Single Player.
Hell yeah, I just got it! I just had to find and kill a f*cking duck... I now have every Achievement available from Single Player

I'm also missing the following:
Slow on the Draw - 10g
The mother lode - 20g
Call it a Comeback! - 10g
Pa-Pa-Pa Poker Ace - 10g
Compulsive Liar - 10g
Legion of Boom - 5g (impossible achievement)
Over 9001 - 5g
Kingpin - 10g

The hardest thing about Unnatural selection for me was finding the snake. I accidentally found it in Torquemada while I was aiming. The reticule kept sticking on the ground.

Tips;

Slow on the Draw - Equip Repeater Carbine, shoot everyone once in the leg and let someone else finish them off.

The Mother Lode - You just have to be good at free aiming. Get a posse of 4 who are all relatively good.

Call It a Comeback! - Just have to get lucky, or get a friend to boost.

Pa-Pa-Pa Poker Ace and Compulsive Liar - I don't even want to talk about these sons of bitches. These alone took me more time than the rest combined.

Legion of Boom - Cannons at Fort Mercer.

Over 9001 - Easy. Pike's Basin.

Kingpin - Again, just have to get lucky.

Just finished the story of Red Dead Redemption yesterday, I gotta say about the ending. It was rather sad and a complete mystery.

Props to Rockstar for making such, a great video game. I'm simply amazed with the storyline and it's theme as well in fact. I cannot wait to see the next one in the series. smile.gif

I'm going to try to be on most of the weekend to take advantage of this triple XP. I'm trying to get the zebra icon14.gif

My GT is CBiscuit93 if anyone wants to posse up.

Also could anyone tell me when exactly triple XP will be activated? I live on the East coast, so will it be midnight tonight? Or like 6:00 in the morning??

Just played through a few gang hideouts today. They always feel so cinematic, landing a shot actually feels fun every time you do it (without deadeye anyway). I figure I'll try to get those ambient challenges now. Anyone got any tips for the one where you have to kill the cougars with the knife?

Zoo, when I did those challenges, particularly that one.. I remember getting a wagon, going to a part of the map where cougars roam and parked it. stay seated, they can't jump up and attack you.. just get on the ground, go for killing one, get back on wagon if you get surrounded. Chances are you'll end up dying anyways, it takes acouple stabs to kill the cougars. But just keep respawning and repeating the process until you finish it.

There is one very obvious solution to this problem. Should you throw a fire bottle at one of them while riding a carriage the passive damage dealt to them while you fight them will always give you the upper hand, the other thing you should do before it hand is put a few bullets through the cougar first so that they're even weaker when it comes down to battling them with nothing but your knife.

Either that or simply stand in the doorway of cougar woods' cabin, if you don't know what or where cougar woods is don't worry, it's the small cabin just south of the great lake that sits atop Tall Trees. Wait there long enough and you'll notice a fairly substantial amount of cougars start to spawn, luckily for you they have great difficulty making their way through the door frame of the cabin, giving you a lot of easy kills.
