lol doesn't it seem faster to just shoot them one after another in slow mo than to target them in slow mo and then allow the game to shoot the quickly for you?! kind of redundant but whatever.  
 
the game looks pretty awesome. i am a big western fan...well, mainly the clint eastwood films  (high plains drifter, good bad ugly, unforgiven et.) and a few others.

I gotta say the euphoria really does look cool to those seemingly against it.  I admittedly haven't played a game with it it and am basing it just on trailers and game footage I've seen but anything where you have procedurally generated animations rather a limited set of recorded animations is way better.  The ones they showed here looked really good.

Call of Juarez influence in the shooting mechanics especially the multiple target elimination.It's good to see games taking ideas from others if these ideas actually work...

Wow.. this look surprisingly awesome. I'm always skeptic about Wild West games mostly because of the lack luster weapon mechanics. But this looks freaking awesome!

This looks fantastic, really looking forward to it.  Thematically far more interesting than GTA4, IMO.

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. "
I thought CoJ was a good game. In what way is this different, aside from being third person? The gun mechanics and bullet time techniques are identical.

This looks a lot better than I thought it was going to. I'm pretty excited to play this. Rockstar + Open World Western = Awesome? Maybe? I hope so.

You hear about this game having alot of trouble through the development cycle, but damn if these trailers dont make the game look fantastic.  I am still definitely looking forward to this.

This trailer was insightful, and got me interested in this game. Reminds me of the VATS targeting in Fallout 3, but with more urgency; you don't have all day to pick your shots, which keeps the flow of the game going.

There's another video where he's wearing one for half a second. Now we just need confirmation on wearing a duster.

I've been looking forward to this game for awhile because I really enjoyed the first game, but this is looking way better than I had hoped for. Oh and Rockstar has some of the best game trailers.

I did that with GTA4 and it was a mistake. Still to this day with a much improved PC and multiple patches it still runs like crap. I will get it for PS3 this time, and maybe again when it comes out of PC if the port is good. For the looks of it, this game could benefit from a mouse and keyboard.

If I'm not mistaken the first Red Dead Revolver actually had this mechanic as well. It was used mostly for targeting specific limbs. I also remember seeing it in games like 007: Everything or Nothing, though I don't think it stopped time while you aimed.
