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…

Red Dead Online hackers are sending spooky scary skeletons to attack players

As they are wont to do, the hackers are at it again. Fortunately, Red Dead Online hackers are usually funny folks. Now it seems that the dead are coming back to life—and no, it's not a belated Halloween event or a sneak reveal of a new Undead Nightmare DLC. Skeletons are being raised and sent after players to sock them in the face brawler style.

The best action games on PC

Everyone loves a good action game. It's the driving force behind so many of our favourite PC games, but only a few can lay claim to being the best action games of all time. That's why we've compiled this list - to sort the pulled punches from the bestest biffs that PC has to offer. Whether it's the joy of pulling off a perfect combo,…

Rockstar co-founder and head writer Dan Houser is leaving

After 21 years as a Rockstar Games big cheese, Dan Houser will leave the company in March. He's co-written almost every Rockstar game since 1999, including Grand Theft Auto from London through to V, Bully, Max Payne 3, and the Red Dead Redemptions. That's made him a big influence on the tone of Rockstar's games. I wonder how that might change once he's moved on.…

Across the next fortnight, GTA Online players can claim $2,000,000 of crimecash for free just for logging in, while Red Dead Online players can scoop a free Bounty Hunter license as well as some free guns and ammo. Rockstar announced the freebies today while crowing about "another record-breaking holiday season" for both multiplayer modes, spaffing all sorts of claims against the digiwall. For example: December…

True facts about beans: further cowboy adventures in Red Dead Redemption 2

All good things must come to an end. Fortunately for our souls, this maxim also applies to the adventures of disgusting Cowboys. After beasting herons, strangling cops, and drowning in swamps during what became the very darkest segment of the RPS Christmas livestream, it was finally time to hang up my snake-wrecking boots, drink my last tin of poorly-preserved, lukewarm peaches, and log out of…

A strangling spree in Saint Denis – more adventures in Red Dead Redemption 2

Smash cut to: the vile, spluttering face of the Cowboy, who is drowning in a swamp. As his strength gives out and his legs stop kicking, those craggy features slip at last below the surface, turning sepia in the murk before vanishing entirely. A shaking hand, still crusted with alligator blood, claws for the sky as it follows him under. Then he is gone. His…
