That’s how I spent most of my weekend, in a posse roaming the wide open lands of the Texas and Mexico. Nothing like doing what you want whenever you want in a video game. Head to a gang hideout and take out the banditos and criminals one by one for XP. Travel up north and team up to take down bears and other assorted big game.
Free roam is whatever you and your posse make it. And let me tell you, it just isn’t as fun without a group of friends. Sure, by yourself you can hoard all the XP from a gang hideout but you stand a bigger chance of dying multiple times. It’s also handy to have some friends near by when a cougar decides to jump you from behind. Those things come are fast and come out of nowhere.
Get your buddies together and make a posse. What’s that? They don’t have Red Dead Redemption yet? Then it is your duty to drive them to the closest GameStop or Best Buy and command them to BUY IT! It is just that freakin awesome.
