seems Split/Second has really pulled me away from this game.  ;D

What do you mean? You don't like that aspect of the game?

...I'm still spending so much time just running around shooting stuff and completing deeds and such. I'm barely in to the main quest line, but I like it so far.

hehe, i spent a lot of time in that big open area just to the north(?) of armadillo: just 'down' [to the left if you are coming from armadillo] from hanging rock.  you can usually bag a lot of different animals there.  i loathe the 'skinning' aspect of it though.  =(

i almost always use the skinning glitch: 'park' your horse right on top of the carcass - but leave enough of the carcass on the 'dismount' side so you can dismount right on top of it - dismount, hit the skin button [i *think* it is the triangle button?].  if you do it right you will not have to watch that gross skinning animation - this can be super helpful when you are in cougar/wolf/bear habitat.  i have been mauled by a cougar while being forced to watch that yucky skinning: as soon as the unskippable animation ended i died.  =(

so far that first 'act' is my favourite:  i actually miss a couple of the characters from that area.  i am just barely into the third act and have not done anything of significance there other than getting a new 'stranger' quest and sleeping/saving in the saloon.  =)

i have the feeling this game is going to be on the short lists of reviewers/gamers for 'game of the year' come december.  it will take a very strong game to beat this one for that title, i think.  i will admit i am very surprised at how much i have enjoyed just riding my horse through all the different places - i like to go 'off roading' and find stuff.  there is so much to do, so much to find, so many different things to occupy your time in the world.

i just wish i could go somewhere without having to rescue everybody's cart/horse/treasure-hunting wagon/wife and/or brother from being hanged, etc.  is the 'price' you pay for having high 'honour/fame' i guess - it really is not all bad, but it can get on your nerves when all you want to do is have a peaceful ride in the country.  =)

i do like the stagecoach defend/attack ones though.  and it always makes me laugh when i see some guy riding full tilt then pull on the reigns, jump off his horse and run to a tree/rock/open space and relieve himself.  haha i am laughing just thinking about  it.  =)

by any chance have you come across npcs out in the wilderness?  there is a very disturbing [to me at least] 'event' with two npcs - if you see it you will know what i am talking about.  it adds 'depth' to the world but it really is quite upsetting.  =(

i am playing on x360 but if anybody wants to clear out some gang hideouts i can pickup a ps3 copy.  there is a coop dlc being released in a couple of weeks - and it is supposed to be free.  that could be really fun, i think.  haha, my multiplayer character right now is not leveled up very much, but she is really funny - my favourite quote of hers... 'how come you only got one eyebrow?'  hehe i constantly hit 'b' to see what funny stuff she says.  =)

p.s.- sorry about the giant wall o' text.  =(

p.p.s- i *think* split/second is a new racing game?  blotto, out on the streets, leaving... um... skid marks.  :o
