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…

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…

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.

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.…

GTA Online and Red Dead Online are giving away free cash and guns

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…

This Red Dead Redemption 2 modder keeps giving Arthur superpowers

The wild west in Red Dead Redemption 2 is great and all but what if it were wilder? What if Arthur Morgan were a firebender? Or had skills more commonly found at a D&D table? What if he just emitted light like some deep sea fish? The RDR2 modding scene is still getting on its feet but creators have done plenty of silly things like…

Red Dead Online starts brewing moonshine today

Oh sure the dream of the dying wild west is grand and all, but Red Dead Online now offers players a grander dream: being Veronica Lodge off Riverdale. Rockstar today launched the Moonshiners Update, letting players start their own hooch business and build up to running a speakeasy. Get a pal to pretend to be Archie, running around beating up criminals. Another mate's cutting about…

RedM will let you turn Red Dead Redemption 2’s online mode into a roleplaying Wild West

Red Dead Redemption 2 Online should be getting a nice upgrade after the release of RedM, a framework mod that allows players to run their own modded servers. It's from the same developers who made Grand Theft Auto V Online's FiveM mod, the backdoor responsible for those Twitch-ruling GTA streams where people roleplay as cops, criminals, communists, and more. The prospect of expanding Rockstar's Wild…

Red Dead Redemption 2’s Steam launch has not gone smoothly

After one bad launch for Red Dead Redemption 2 with its PC debut on Rockstar and Epic's stores in November, I had thought Rockstar might make the most of the second chance for a smooth launch presented by its belated Steam release last night. They have not. Along with the crashing and performance issues still suffered by all players, the Steam release seems to have…

Mexico has been hiding in Red Dead Redemption 2 all this time

Red Dead Redemption 2 is allegedly an action game about a gun-slingin' guy named Arthur Morgan but to many of us it's become an Old West simulator where we can live the simple life hunting game and looking at trees unbothered by society. Exploration is king in RDR2 but the one place we can't explore is a place we took for granted in the previous…

Red Dead Redemption 2 fixes even more crashes

Life in the West has been difficult on PC mostly because I keep steering my horse into NPCs by accident and starting an unintended dog pile of humans and horses. On the upshot, I haven't personally had any issues with Red Dead Redemption 2 itself crashing, just my horse. Plenty of other players have though and Rockstar's new update for PC players today aims to fix even…

Red Dead Redemption 2 comes to Steam next Thursday

While Red Dead Redemption 2's been out on PC for a month, Rockstar's cowboy epic has only been sold through their own store and Epic's clients, steering clear of Steam. It was always due to mosey on over, of course, but like a fine wine, it needed time to breath (and satisfy exclusivity arrangements). Today, Rockstar announced a release date for RDR2's Steam debut, opening…

Red Dead Redemption 2’s stuttering issues have a workaround in 1.14 patch

Update: Rockstar have patched Red Dead Redemption 2 again, expanding their 1.14 patch notes with lots more detail of various stability fixes that have come to the cowboy game. The apology for the rocky launch and the free items for RDR2 Online players mentioned below are nice, but presumably not as nice as the game gradually smoothing out its wrinkles. In a separate update linked…

This mod lets you roam Red Dead Redemption 2 as any beast you want

Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally here, bringing its sweeping vistas of the American west to PC. Rubbish, then, that you're expected to experience the natural splendour of the rolling plains as an old man with a pound of gravel in his throat. Fortunately, thanks to the work of modders, one download and a few save edits are all it takes to swap those hands…
