Okay so i have Red Dead Redemption and im playing it on the, oh lets say, the 2nd night of release..
I have gone through alot of cowboy rustlin in single player.. gettin to know my surroundings and abilities.. but i wanted to try multiplayer..
I join a game of free roam.. i take a few minutes to go through character customization and im off riding my donkey towards the closest of the online peeps.. Shortly i find the interaction between online folk is quite deadly so i try and kill people.. i shoot one dead and another runs to a water tower.. I shoot him in the head after he shot at me.. I get an achievment for killing a "Rockstar" or some1 who had killed a Rockstar before... after this my game ends and im sent back to single player..
After this all my free roam multiplayer matches end after about 10 minutes or less and sometimes they dont even get started it just shows "server error" or something while its loading and then sends me back to single player.
I get the feeling that I killed a developer and it didnt make him too happy so he screwed up my internet.. though a more likely answer could be that its one of RDR's many glitches. This game has wayy more glitches and screw ups then i had hoped for... people dissapear or get flung into the air by nothing... one mission i was infiltrating a mexican hideout and i was flung off of a roof while trying to take cover behind a small wall and fell to my death... One time in multiplayer me and 2 other people (including our noble steeds) were all invisible. I ran up to one guy not knowin why my crosshair was so high but i realized im aiming at an invisible mans head right in front of me..
One time i tried to whistle while on my horse in single player and my guy abruptly jumped off the horse and started to dart off to the north.. i couldnt stop him, it took about 200 yards before i tried crouching and it got me out of my crazed running mood.
The game is beautiful and by far the best western ever made by far. And as a stand alone game its also very entertaining and gives much material to work with so that ur not bored. But i think Rockstar should have fixed these glitches before release (even though iwas counting down the seconds) or at least they make an update or 2 in the future to correct these blurts of reality in this cowboy world.
(Update): So im guessing The star of Rocks didnt mess with me. they just hada technical issue. my online experience has come back to life.. but unfortunately the glitches are still just as frequent, sometimes funny but no.. plz stop.. THINK OF THE CHILDREN!
