I was going to buy this last weekend but could not find time to go to softrigde, who seem to have the "confirmed" English version.
The version sold in switzerland has the instruction leaflet written in German, while the game is all in English (plus localized menu and subtitles for other european languages)

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

I just finished God of War 3, and though I enjoyed it, I'll hardly play through it again. Would anyone fancy a swap?
I don't assume someone is already fed up with Red Dead Redemption?
I could be interested in Dead Space, and perhaps a second game.
Or just make me a suggestion in a PM.

Cheers!

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Im about 8 hours into Red Dead Redemption, and i am still loving it.

Who would have thought that riding horses could be so much fun.

Breaking them in, and herding cows.... total fun!

Lots of interesting characters to meet and really engage with.

The matrix style shooting system is excellent.

and so on.

I was in my local game store and the guy there told me I had to get RDR. I told him that I would probably miss it out because I am not such a fan of the GTA series (i just find it too over the top and the world is almost too open). He said I should buy it anyway so I did, and I have to say, its an awesome game.

Not really matrix... I would say it's a mix between GTA and Max Payne. Both "developed" by rockstar games (PS2 port)

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Well the last reply in this thread was almost a month ago, and my question is kinda different, so here goes nothing~~~
I've been in Lausanne, Switzerland studying abroad from the United States for the last two weeks and I'll be here till the end of the month. Anyways between visiting the various areas and enjoying the Swiss nightlife, I've been wondering if there was any active fighting game scene here such as gatherings to play games like Tekken, SF4, Guilty Gear, BlazBlue, TvC, etc. I'd like to see what the gaming community is like here. Near me at the Lausanne Gare there's an arcade called Quanta that I've seen but it seems the only thing people play there is DDR and ITG. I've also seen a internet cafe at Riponne but it seems 1. Desolate 2. Only World of Warcraft and CS:S players there.
I found that the UK has a huge gaming community and they all post on Neoempire so I was seeing if there was anything similar in the Swiss area but this is the closest I've come to finding anything.
Anyways, any information would be helpful. I'm already going to miss this country when it's time to leave.
I'm going to cross-post this on the Xbox360 thread just to get some more info hopefully.
Thanks.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Been playing RED DEAD REDEMPTION, and tbh i was a lttle dishappointed.

Graphics are not that great, storyline is all out of sequence, your characters interaction with the surrounding enviroment seems slugish/glitchy and what annoys me the most is that i swear the voice of the main character is the same as the the main biker guy in GTA4-TLAD (not 100% sure, i did not check the credits).


On the positive, i love the shooting/hunting/skinning of animals, i spent hours just doing that. Selling stuff takes forever as well.


Overall though i am not won over by the game. It just seems like they made the game and released it rather than testing it and seeing what works and what doesnt and then tweeking before selling.


Maybe its because i have played so much ACII (just need a couple of trophies for platinum!!), but the horse riding is 20000% better.


Roll on Black Ops and AC-Brotherhood releases!!!!

cheers

I think the voice is same too. I think it is the same voice actor.
Hold on

...wiki-ing...

Nope its different guys...Klebitz is Scott Hill and Marston is Rob Weithoff.

Both games is awesome though. For different reasons, but awesome nonetheless.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Just did a pre-ordering session with play.com


Assasins Creed Brotherhood (with beta access starting 15th september!!!!!)

GT5

Call of Duty - Black Ops

Entourage - Season 6 (Bluray)



I was tempted to order Dead Space II but changed my mind when in the basket.

Also just watched some vids on youtube for Medal of Honour........Looks pretty good.




Anyone want to swap or buy my Red Dead Redemption?.......not overly impressed, plus the trophies are a nightmare




cheers

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Nice pre-order list... definitely will get Black Ops as well, can't seem to get these games out of my system since I attacked Stalingrad in the first one...

Hoping that Mafia II won't be delayed for too long...

Edit: Almost forgot - I read rumors that there will be Zombies again in Black Ops - is there any official confirmation on that??

I downloaded the demo for Mafia II.........yet to play it.


Zombies........i think it has been unoffically confirmed there will be some sort of extra map download with zombies.




Finally found all the feathers in ACII!!! Got the cool cape, then proceeded to go to each city to get the 'Show your colours' trophy. Took me an hour before i figured out that i did not go 'to the mountains'........finally got it.

Now all i need is to sweep 5 guards to get the platinum tropy. Spend 2 hours trying to no avail. Kept getting 4!!!!

Really annoying. Will try again tonight. Once i have done it does anyone wanna swap ACII for some thing?

cheers
