As one may have guessed, I've been playing Red Dead Redemption
. I've had a busy Memorial Day
weekend beyond that and most of my more relevant sketches are still spoiler-tastic, so I figured I may as well draw myself riding a horse over a cliff. Whee!
Okay, in fairness to the game, horse controls are actually good. If one goes over a cliff, it is more likely their fault than the horses. This is
inspired by something that happened in-game, however. You're able to whistle to summon your horse, so I whistled for Rusty. Rusty heard my whistle and dashed over like a good, loyal horse... and promptly ran over the side of a cliff. To his credit, I was near the cliff he fell over, and he did somehow survive the fall (yay video game physics!), but Rusty had a long way to go to get back up to me. I proceeded on foot for a bit after that.
I don't want to rant about it too much here; this is the EGS sketchbook, not my blog
. So long as I've brought it up, however, I'm very impressed with it so far. It's the first sandbox game I've played where I genuinely don't want to just randomly run around attacking people and acting like a general nutcase.
