I've loved Red Dead Revolver like no other console game. It's the only one I have 100 percented and finished on all difficulty levels. And I'm going back to play it after this post.
So when Rockstar finally confirmed this week that Red Dead Redemption - the sequel rumored off and on for two years - was coming this fall I literally leaped out of my chair swinging a fist. On consoles, military and science fiction FPSes and third-person shooters have saturated the action market, but in westerns, there's still something left to the imagination. And cowboys and indians, as old as the day your grandfather first pointed his finger like a six-gun, is a theme familiar enough that people don't need much convincing to explore it.
