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. » 2/22/15 7:30pm 2/22/15 7:30pm

To Really Appreciate Red Dead Redemption, Listen To It Closely

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. » 12/05/14 5:56pm 12/05/14 5:56pm

Rockstar's Perfect Video Game Moment

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. » 10/31/13 11:00pm 10/31/13 11:00pm

Rockstar Made The Best Trailers Of The Last Gaming Era

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. » 10/24/13 5:30pm 10/24/13 5:30pm

An Adorable Way To Say Goodbye To This Console Generation

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. » 9/17/13 1:30pm 9/17/13 1:30pm

John Marston Died On The Oregon Trail

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. » 9/02/13 4:00pm 9/02/13 4:00pm

Red Dead's Star Voice Actor Joins Cast Of Espionage Game

I've already mentioned that I'm a big fan of the idea behind Codename Cygnus. The game is a choose-your-own-adventure radio drama for iOS that casts you as a spy, complete with voice acting, sound effects, and likely more than a fair bit of intrigue. But a game like this is only as good as its voice cast. » 8/07/13 5:00pm 8/07/13 5:00pm

Graphic artist Olly Moss visualized what hunting season would look like with Red Dead Redemption's John Marston and Trevor, the psycho character from Grand Theft Auto V. They're both smiling, but deep inside it would probably be a tough ride for Marston. » 7/12/13 8:30am 7/12/13 8:30am

Rockstar Might Actually Bring GTAV, Other Games To PC

Red Dead Redemption never made it to the PC. Grand Theft Auto V hasn't been announced for PC. Such sadness. But what's this? A personal computer-shaped rainbow on the horizon? » 7/09/13 11:00pm 7/09/13 11:00pm

Red Dead Redemption Movie Is Looking Just About Perfect

A group of fans are putting a Red Dead Redemption movie together, and smartly, they're not doing the obvious. They're instead drinking from the same inspirational well as the series' developers (especially from the first Red Dead), combining a love for Spaghetti Westerns and a bit of the old ultra-violence into… » 6/02/13 10:00pm 6/02/13 10:00pm

This Week The Internet Went Crazy Over These Glitchy And Artistic GIFs

The reveal of the Xbox One might have overshadowed content on the Internet this week, but that certainly wasn't the case for the craftiest of internet denizens who convert anything worthy into an animated GIF. Whether it's some sort of a video game glitch, like giant Spock's terrifying stare above, or a nice form of… » 5/24/13 6:30pm 5/24/13 6:30pm

It's Red Dead vs Metal Gear In This Insane Video Game Shootout

Another in the terrific Video Game Deathmatch series, this clip pits Red Dead Redemption's John Marston against Metal Gear's pistol-twirling expert Revolver Ocelot. » 5/14/13 12:00am 5/14/13 12:00am

A Visual History of Attractive Video Game Characters: The 10s

The past few years produced a huge amount of great games and a surprisingly decent amount of them have well-developed characters that are hard to forget. And, of course, some of them look really attractive. » 5/03/13 6:30pm 5/03/13 6:30pm

Get A Load Of This Criminally Cool Red Dead Redemption Monopoly Set

There are several cool video-game themed Monopoly sets out there, but I'd be hard-pressed to think of a cooler one than this homemade Red Dead Redemption set put together by Redditor inspirermeg. » 3/21/13 9:30pm 3/21/13 9:30pm

The Most Insane Minecart Levels In Video Games

There was a time when mines and minecarts dominated video games. If a platformer or RPG didn't have a mine stage or a mine-themed dungeon, it wasn't a game. We felt like mines—where actual mining was eschewed in favor of racing around on minecarts—were the most natural things in the world, just as common as forests. » 2/15/13 5:00pm 2/15/13 5:00pm

This Sure Wasn't The Way I Expected Red Dead Redemption 10 To Be…

About a month ago I decided to finally play Max Payne 3, incidentally our "Best Drinking in a Dirty T-Shirt" GOTY. The game prompted me to make a social account with Rockstar, so I did. » 12/05/12 2:30pm 12/05/12 2:30pm

Rockstar's Releasing One Hell of a Compilation Disc

While the cover art appears to be predictably awful, there's little disputing the quality of the contents of this compilation of Rockstar games that's turned up on retail sites. » 10/11/12 12:30am 10/11/12 12:30am

It's Not A Glitch. It's A Feature. It's Art. It's Beautiful.

We lacked a campfire, but that didn't stop us from telling tall tales about the incredible—but completely true, I swear!—things that happened to us while we played our favorite games. Forget about title recommendations, or stories of overcoming difficult challenges. That impressed nobody at recess. The gold was in… » 8/10/12 6:00pm 8/10/12 6:00pm
