This is the coolest (and cruelest) Achievement of all time

Red Dead Redemption might be the perfect Western game. Anything and everything you'd ever expect or want from the genre is here. Shooting, hunting, lassoing and horseback riding. Forts, saloons, riverboats and ghost towns. Blackjack, poker and good old-fashioned graverobbing.

Oh yeah, and you can hogtie a woman to the train tracks, wait for a locomotive to run her over and be rewarded with a Trophy or Achievement. Simultaneously twirling a well-oiled mustache is entirely optional... but encouraged!

    Wow, the staff is cheering on murdering innocent women in games, and it isn't tongue in cheek or anything. Not that I really care, except for articles like this: Mark my words, next week some editor will be on here decrying all men as murderous sexist pigs for playing any game where the main character a) isn't female or b) is female but can see her feet when she looks down. Hypocrites much?

    I rode across the whole map with a lady bouncing along on my saddle to catch up to the stupid train. It was worth it, though. ReCaptcha: hickok carib Another fitting western recaptcha.

    The worst part of this is that it's a secret achievement, meaning a friend had to tell you, or you just happened to be killing an innocent woman. Unless you were told about the achievement, you had no incentive. EVIL!!

    I thought this game was gonna be good but I just hated it. My biggest gripe was when you kill/capture a bounty and go to get the reward why in the hell does his entire posse just keep randomly respawning and coming after me. Did he someone make a telegraph call or send a ponyexpress before he died? How the hell does his posse know he's dead? Telepathy? Come on! The controls were ass and so was the cover mechanic. What's funny is that the commercials still make me want to play a game I really don't. Their marketing team has done their job in my book. Oh well, funny achievement. Kinda bummed I sent it back to Lamefly. I would've loved to have done that. Don't know why I never thought of putting a hogtied capture on the tracks.

    I waited until I ran into the random encounter with the lady & the broken down carriage. Let's just say I felt less guilty watching her get hit by the train...and by targeting her you do not get a bounty or take a hit to the honor. Though my wife will never look at me the same again.

    As if I neede another reason to get this game. What a fuckin' achievement!! I would expect nothing less from Rockstar. Thank you so much Rockstar.

    To be homest, I'll probably enjoy doing this (in the game obviously) because when I play Heavy Rain I enjoy killing off Madison to a degree that man would call disturbing. Thats perfectly normal right?

    I cant really think of anything witty to say about an innocent women getting splattered for the leering enjoyment of psychopathic gamers...but Ouch.
  • banjokazoozie - May 28, 2010 11:09 a.m.

    haha this is awesome, I'm definitely getting this game now!

    Well, you don't HAVE to use an innocent woman. Some dumb wench tried to steal my horse. She got a cow catcher to the face. And I didn't even feel bad about it.
  • super2j - May 28, 2010 3:01 a.m.

    You know, i feel bad about wanting to try this and for this reason. i will.
  • batman5273 - May 28, 2010 2:50 a.m.

    I totally want that achievement!!
  • spawny0908 - May 28, 2010 2:49 a.m.

    I suggest using those chicks in on the ambushes for this one!!!
  • ensabahnur - May 28, 2010 2:34 a.m.

    This achievement alone might make me get this game.
  • Evil_AppleJuice - May 28, 2010 2:29 a.m.

    I got this achievement the third day i had the game. I was pretty bored, and my sick mind remembered those villians of yesterday in the films that would tie a woman to the tracks. So i did it and laughed when i recieved the achievement! Sadly my horse decided to try to save her and also became a cloud of blood :(

    I heard a friend of mine talking about this just today.. what a cool Achievment.
