Where the Bucking Bronco thing costs 375... is it possible to make that much money in the beginning? I have done all the carnival game and got all the prizes and even use my Vigor on the vending machine to spit out coins...
You can't afford that vigor at the start even with the extra eagles, you don't get them till a ways after that machine.
It only cost $375 if you possess the machine... so with the $500 pre-order dlc yes you can.
It often helps if you know what you're talking about, my friend. Play the game with the bonus and see if YOU can manage to get the 500 before the game tells you it's available.
I started playing past night with the bonus and couldn't afford it either even after completing all the games. To be honest it was so late I'm not sure when or if I got the $500. I'm guessing it was in the bar where you receive the DLC gear and extra bottles of infusion. I also didn't try and go back to that area afterwards.
If there is a way to get the $500 early, I'm all ears. :)
sorry I don't purchase day 1 dlc... the game is easy enough as is I don't need to start with a bunch of extra gear. Once you pass the gate and meet the twins the first time you can't return to the area with the bronco vending machine... so yeah if you obtain the $500 after that then it's just a tease.
