    Red Dead Redemption 2 (video game)

    It's felt like an eternity waiting for official word on this! The original is likely my favorite game of all time, so to say I'm excited would be an understatement...

    Surprised that RDR never appeared on the PC though.

    So psyched for this!

    In the meantime, I can't wait to dive back in to the game by way of backwards compatible niceness.

    After RDR1 and GTA on next gen I am super stoked for this. Always have been and will be in to Westerns.

    Very welcome news, so it is. The teaser trailer looks great - RDR was visually stunning (sometimes I'd just sit in front of a wide open vista and watch the sun rise/set), and this new one looks even more gorgeous. Hopefully there'll still be plenty to do throughout the landscape with a few towns that are fairly built up to add a bit of variety.

    I absolutely loved RDR. There was something quite special about being able to swagger into a town and have a showdown with some scumbag, play a few rounds of poker, gun down a couple of ne'er-do-wells, and ride off into the sunset for more adventures.

    Some people are pondering if there'll be seven characters to choose from (akin to GTA V's three characters you could switch between), but might that be too many? Three was plenty, but I would welcome a female character to play as for some added variety, some sort of Calamity Jane type maybe.

    Not so important news - New trailer

    Important news - PC version confirmed

    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    It was strange how they never put out a PC version, wasn't it? GTA IV got one (albeit a somewhat dodgy port to begin with, IIRC), and if I recall L.A. Noire and Max Payne 3 both got PC ports along with, naturally, GTA V. RDR was hugely successful ... perhaps Rockstar simply didn't have the resources for it? Hmmm ... glad I had a 360, as I played it on there. It was a great game and I'm properly looking forward to RDR2. The world looks absolutely stunning (as did RDR). With the previous game I'd just go and hang out on my horse at a vantage point and watch the gorgeous world pass by as the sun rose or set. Gorgeous, so it was. The design was spectacular.
