Feature: Saddle up

Video: 8 cowboy games to play on PC while everyone else plays Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2 was made by five million people working nine day weeks, but does it have a duck that collects your discarded throwing knives? Actually, I don’t know, as it’s not on PC. But a game that does feature a magic duck, and can be played on your home computer, is the lovely Luckslinger. It’s one of eight delightful cowboy ‘em ups that…

Rockstar employees speak out against crunch controversy

With talk of crunch and working conditions casting a shadow over Rockstar's console launch of Red Dead Redemption 2 next week, the secretive company also behind Grand Theft Auto seem to have invited employees to speak openly about their experiences. It's an uncharacteristic and curious move, having employees try to clean up a PR mess created by co-founder Dan Houser's thoughtless boast that he and…

Devs highlight their crunch-free games following Rockstar fuss

"Crunch! A-ah!" sang Queen. "Failure of the industry!" Sadly, even Brian Blessed and his black leather horde descending from the skies failed to make a lasting impact on game development. This week, a Rockstar co-founder put his foot in it talking about "100-hour weeks" for some on Red Dead Redemption 2 and Sega's parent company proudly declared that now only some employees work more than…

Red Dead Online announced but still no word on PC release

Red Dead Online has been announced by Rockstar (as if it was ever in doubt) and they say it'll be an "evolution" of the rootin' tootin' multiplayer in the first Red Dead Redemption. In other words, a big online version of the open world in Red Dead Redemption 2, where you can trot about on your pony, buy fashionable spurs, and get shot by ingrates…

Another splinter of Red Dead Redemption 2 hits PC in GTA Online

Rockstar are still ominously silent about the prospect of a PC release for Red Dead Redemption 2, though rumours do swirl, but they are happy to continue taunting us by flicking fragments of it this way. GTA Online today launched a new Red Dead promo event, adding a quest unlocking a stone hatchet we can swing fiercely in GTAO then get in RDR2 too once…

Red Dead Redemption 2 existence on PC possibly leaked via LinkedIn

Tradition dictates that Rockstar may not discuss the PC version of any of its games, or even admit that they exist, until we’ve all given up any hope of seeing them. So while Red Dead Redemption 2 was unveiled for consoles a while back, there’s been no news for PC. With Rockstar keeping schtum, there was only one hope: LinkedIn. The Keeper of CVs. The…

Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer introduces its cowboy

Howdy, etc. A new trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 [official site] has been revealed by Rockstar games, showing off  a little more of the wild west and introducing protagohero Arthur Morgan. We're not allowed to get excited about this, because it hasn't been officially announced for the PC yet. But my gizzards are telling me you want to know anyway, just in case those…

But one thing we do know for sure is that it’s coming out for consoles this autu-- what? Oh. Oh, I see.

Red Dead Redemption 2: The Reveal Trailer

Update: it's aired! Full YouTube trailer below. It is, er, brief. But very pretty and pleasantly tranquil. I'll be honest: I'm writing the bones of this post before the hopefully below trailer's actually aired (in five minutes from the time of posting), because that's how the internet works these days. So, for all I know, all the Red Dead Redemption 2 [official site] ad consists…

Red Dead Redemption 2 Announced, PC Not Confirmed

As expected, Rockstar have strapped on their shooting iron and saddled up to announce Red Dead Redemption 2 [official site]. 2010's Red Dead Redemption, an open-world cowboy 'em up in the modern Grand Theft Auto style, is perhaps my favourite Rockstar game so this is splendid news. In a disappointing but unsurprising turn, no, Rockstar haven't said anything about a PC version yet; only console…

Rockstar Are Teasing A Red Dead Redemption Sequel

For PC folks, Red Dead Redemption is the lost Rockstar game. It's also the Rockstar game that people seem to love the most and that can seem like a case of absence making the heart grow fonder, given that it is sequel-less and unavailable on our platform of choice. All of that may be coming to an end. Rumours of a remaster or sequel have…
