I don't really like the wild west, or "open world" games, so probably not for me.

This game looks amazing! I've always enjoyed Western movies but have found that no game has yet to cash in on the proper formula. Perhaps this will be the one!

Wow this actually looks pretty good. Looks like it was built upon upgraded GTA4 tech. The idea of riding a horse and firing pistols sounds great, just like you could out of a car in GTA.

There were a lot of fancy words that could have been replaced with "ragdoll physics". It's similar to James Cameron and his "performance capture".
 
Also, this isn't a forum post.  It's an "electronic response measure" in a "international sharing matrix".

@dhuff: The Euphoria physics system isn't as basic as ragdoll. So actually, simply calling it ragdoll would be a lie.

I'm digging the gunshot sounds. These fuckers approach the Michael Mann level of authenticity.

Love the strap on your back to carry your primary gun. Death to magic pockets.
 
Wonder if you can dual-wield revolvers too since there's not that many guns in this era, to mix things up.

This is EXACLTY why this is my most anticipated game of 2010.
 
I am huge western gun freak and a huge fan of euphoria, it is the way forward, so glad Rockstar are using it again. 
 
I did get worried about some of the problems behind the scenes, but this looks uneffected

Hardly. While the Western Genre has hit a downturn lately, Red Dead Revolver was a bright light. The only thing that held it from being a hit was that it had no online play. However, Im interested to see how this turns out with Rockstar actually making it. The last one was made by Capcom and then they dropped it, then Rockstar picked it up.

Still trying to impress people with euphoria huh? Didn't they already fail to impress us with its "groundbreaking" techniques in GTA4 and Force Unleashed? I guess they think we're too stupid to have remembered that it's not as fantastic as it sounds.
 
Regardless, Red Dead was a fantastic game, and this looks even better.

Hope all their work was worth it.  Looks great.  I just hope you can basically never use the dead eye targeting and still beat it.  I guess I'd be going for sim if I played this :)

I really liked Red Dead Revolver.
 
Dead Eye was one of the coolest systems in that game.
 
The quick draw system was also great extension of that, and I'm gonig to assume it's in this too.
