As promised earlier this week, here’s the debut trailer for the eagerly anticipated follow-up to Rockstar’s Western opus, Red Dead Redemption. It’s not much, but it sure is pretty.
Rockstar’s been teasing the crap out of a big reveal for the past couple days. Their tease medium of choice? Images of stars and cowboys. Obviously, they’re either about to announce a new Red Dead game, or a gripping open-world narrative experience about sports teams from Dallas, Texas.
Earlier this morning, Rockstar Games went red, with new versions of its logo appearing on social media accounts like Twitter and Facebook, as well as the loading screen for the company’s official website. Update: A second image appears, with cowboys.
HBO’s new series Westworld has probably got a lot of people reconsidering their most recent Grand Theft Auto V murder spree.
Is a Red Dead Redemption remaster coming? According to Korean site Game Focus (via tipster Sang), a Red Dead remaster for PS4, Xbox One, and PC is in the works. Kotaku is following up with Rockstar and will update this story should the company comment.
With Red Dead Redemption finally backwards compatible on the Xbox One, it’s time to look back at Rockstar’s Western masterpiece. A staggering example of AAA design gone horribly right, Red Dead is one hell of a game. Join me in this video for an adventure full of bounty hunters, sharpshooting, and shenanigans!
Inexplicably, there’s still no way to play the fantastic western open-world game Red Dead Redemption on PC or PlayStation 4, but starting today you can at least play it on an Xbox One.
Back in February, Red Dead Redemption quietly became backwards compatible on Xbox One. It was later removed by Microsoft, who claimed it was part of a “test” that wasn’t meant to be released publicly. Soon, though, everyone will get a chance to revisit one of Rockstar’s best games.
The Xbox 360 version of Red Dead Redemption was briefly playable on Xbox One this weekend, but it’s since been removed. Said Microsoft’s Major Nelson: “Microsoft tests all Xbox 360 games with our emulator to ensure a quality experience across a breadth of titles. Due to an error, some of the games currently in test…
One of the most requested additions to the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility list, Red Dead Redemption is now available for download and play. Folks just need to own the game digitally and find someone already following the game. Update: Not working anymore. Xbox’s Major Nelson comments on Reddit.
My favorite trophies and achievements in video games are the gimmick-based ones. They’re not about finishing a level or getting a certain amount of headshots. They’re about doing something specific, often something outlandish, silly, deliberately provocative, or plain screwed up. They can add levity to a sober gaming…
For such a fun holiday, video games have a lot of trouble doing Halloween justice. Sure there are exceptions—Destiny just did a pretty good job, and Costume Quest is fun—but for the most part it’s a time of year that games struggle to really celebrate. Unless, like right now, we’re talking about Undead Nightmare, the…
You can’t stop progress.
There was a Red Dead fan film released a couple of years ago that was very influenced by 70's schlock. This new one is a more traditional take on the game, and it's all the better for it.
I don't think people say that Mass Effect "feels like sci-fi," or The Witcher "feels like fantasy." But people do say that Red Dead Redemption "feels like a Western," and I'm compelled to agree. Why? Listen to the game.
I've played thousands of games over the years. And only once has a game ever given me a bonafide outbreak of goosebumps. Head-to-toe. It was during this past console generation, and it was while I was riding a horse.
The video game trailer is an interesting phenomenon. It is, at its core, a marketing device—a series of sounds and images, carefully arranged to make you want to buy something.
Former video game concept artist Joey Spiotto chose an adorable way to say goodbye to this console generation. He combined his favorite video game characters with the design of the Little Golden Books children's literature series. Shepard and John Marston never looked so nice and friendly.
The Oregon Trail is a game with a blunt message: you will all die. Repeatedly. Educational, perhaps, but also bleak. It could do with a little lightening up.
