The Epic Games Store is having a grand old halloween sale

Is there anything scarier than buying products at below the recommended retail price? Almost certainly, which is why I'd hesitate to call the Epic Games Store Halloween Sale particularly spooky. It is, however, taking a massive knife to game prices across the platform, with some pretty hefty discounts of up to 80% going on a number of range of fantastic games until the sale wraps…

Red Dead Online has a new Halloween Outlaw Pass and zombie game mode

As it was leaked, so it shall come to pass. Red Dead Online has been updated with a Halloween-themed Outlaw Pass. The new Outlaw Pass has 20 ranks to climb with unlockable rewards and will run through November 16th. A new zombie game mode has been added as well and—wait, hold on. No, it isn't a follow up to Undead Nightmare, the well-liked zombie expansion for…

Rockstar have indeed turned Ruffian Games into Rockstar Dundee

Rockstar have announced today that, as was previously rumored, they have indeed acquired Ruffian Games, makers of Crackdown 2 and helping hands on Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Ruffian is getting less ruff, adopting the new corporate family name Rockstar Dundee. Both say they look forward to working together on future projects, though they've not said yet just what those will be.

Rockstar have reportedly grabbed Ruffian Games, making them Rockstar Dundee

It seems that Rockstar Games, the makers of Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption, have snapped up Ruffian Games. The Dundee studio are known for making Crackdown 2, and most recently helped out with Halo: The Master Chief Collection. While neither Rockstar nor Ruffian have announced anything publicly, records filed with Companies House say that Rockstar parent company Take-Two Interactive now own at least…

Red Dead Redemption 2 Online may get a Halloween Outlaw Pass

Red Dead Redemption 2 Online just got a new update earlier this week adding the Naturalist role, but that certainly won't stop folks from digging up secrets planned for future updates. My instinct is to holler "stop peeking at your presents and enjoy the update you just got!" but I'll admit I'm very partial to in-game Halloween events so even I'm distracted by these rumoured…

Red Dead Online is getting a “naturalism” Frontier Pursuit today

Rockstar is inviting you to become one with nature in Red Dead Online today. At least, I'm reasonably sure that's what they mean. They're introducing a new Frontier Pursuit "that will introduce players to the secrets of naturalism", which sounds a lot like you'll be able to become a hunter, or maybe just make friends with the animals. Hm, actually, probably not. Let's be honest,…

Feature: Western Chipmunk to White Cougar

All 234 animals in Red Dead Redemption 2 reviewed (part 3)

It's been a little while since I did one of these, but those animals aren't gonna review themselves, so I'd best crack on. And with 43 already given definitive ratings for all time, I'm nearly a quarter of the way through the list. Well, more like one sixth, actually, but who cares about fractions? Anyway, today I've got a much more interesting selection to work…

Watch Blindboy improvise songs as he taunts the people of Red Dead Redemption 2

You might know Blindboy as "that Irish guy from the Rubberbandits who wears a bag on his head", because he is, but he's also so much more. He's a podcaster, author and musician, and Alice Bee is well into him. She's on holiday, though, which means I get to show off his recent adventures in Red Dead Redemption 2. Please treat yourself to the following…

Rockstar block hackers from summoning KKK characters in Red Dead Online

Red Dead Online cheaters get up to all sorts of mischief by summoning various NPCs from the game data into the world. As only one of oh so many examples, there was a spree of two-headed skeleton attacks several months ago. Mischief becomes more malign when they, say, summon white-robed KKK members to attack other players. So of course they're doing that. Rockstar say they…

Feature: One Off The List

The 9 most desperate cowboys in PC games

[Warning: this article must be read entirely in a comedy cowboy voice]Howdy pardner. Spittoon? Take it, we got a whole crate of them right here. Every god-fearing outlaw needs a good spittoon at their heels, as my grandmammy used to say. Hoo-wee, what a women. She was known to enjoy a strong snifter of list article, you know. Everyone who visited got a spittoon and…

Can’t play Animal Crossing? Try Red Dead Redemption 2 instead

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has become a phenomenon. If you're not playing it, you're probably still seeing it everywhere you turn - on Twitter, on Twitch, on the lips of your friends discussing turnip prices. It's likely enough to inspire FOMO, the fear of missing out.There are a couple of Animal Crossing adjacent games available on PC. Stardew Valley is one which comes instantly to…

Feature: Red-footed Booby to Leghorn Rooster

All 234 animals in Red Dead Redemption 2 reviewed (part 2)

As I said last time, my favourite thing about Red Dead Redemption 2 is the fact you can treat the game as an extremely perilous wildlife-spotting sim, with new creatures to behold every time you enter a new corner of the Cowboy's grotty, whiskey-stained world. Some 234 creatures, in fact. And as a mark of respect, largely to the concept of animals but also to…

Feature: It still beats Zoom.

People are using Red Dead Redemption 2 to hold conference calls

"Found my own body floating down the river today. Didn't recognise myself for ages." This may sound like the start of a magical realist detective story, rather than something you'd say in a meeting with colleagues. But in Red Dead Redemption 2, which is rapidly emerging as an unlikely competitor to Zoom and Skype in the world of conference calling, this is business as usual.…

Best Red Dead Redemption 2 mods

Whenever I return to Red Dead Redemption 2, I find myself wanting to be released from the shackles of Rockstar’s design. Much like the Van der Linde gang, I’m looking for a place of my own, one that’s free from the concerns and constraints imposed by The Man. So I turn to mods, where I can make the west wild again.

Ride piggy-back on colossal boars in this Red Dead Redemption 2 mod

Y'all still riding horses out there? It's 1899, son, get with the times. A new, in-development Red Dead Redemption 2 mod has opened the stables to all manner of wild bears, boars cougars and more. After all, there ain't a sight in the West more terrifying than a grim outlaw with a fistful of bullets, nothing to lose, and 500 pounds of furious pork under…

Feature: American Alligator to Giant Boar

All 234 animals in Red Dead Redemption 2 reviewed (part 1)

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a game drowning in details, with its attempt to capture a simulated vision of an American west that's been gone for 120 years, down to every last shell casing, spittoon stain and sweat-crusted saddlebag. Probably my favourite thing about it all, however, is the obsessive, noachian fervour with which the natural world has been catalogued. There are some 234 animals…

Rockstar’s crunch culture is changing, developers say

Remember when Red Dead Redemption 2 first launched and everyone was abuzz as Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser proudly proclaimed 100-hour work weeks a necessary evil? Ah, too many horrific things have happened since then and you'd forgotten, hadn't you? Well here's a less awful thing then. According to current Rockstar developers, it seems that the company's crunch culture is changing. For the better, to be clear.

Red Dead Redemption 2 players are puke rappelling off mountains

The wild west is a dangerous place. You'd think it's because of the cougars and grizzly bears and alligators but no, my real nemesis in Red Dead Redemption 2 is riding or running straight off a cliff I wasn't playing attention to. Inevitably that ends up with me dead at the bottom of a ravine, preserved in a loading screen as death by falling, though…
