Red Dead Redemption: *drool*

For those of you who’ve been following us these past couple of months, we’ve been super excited for Rockstars Red Dead Redemption. Well, it came in the mail today and holy cow is this a great game. The open world is gorgeous, the fights are stressful, and the story/ quests that you get are engaging and downright fun.  This won’t be a full review of the game because we just haven’t played enough to justify giving it a proper thought, but honestly, so far so good.  If you haven’t gotten this game yet: GO GET IT!!

Some really cool things that you may not have known about:

From May 18th to June 1st, earn the Red Dead Rockstar Achievement or Trophy by playing multiplayer and killing a Rockstar – or someone who has already killed a Rockstar.  If you earn this prestigious Achievement or Trophy during that time period and have a membership in the Rockstar Games Social Club, you will automatically be entered for your chance to have a unique Multiplayer character with your likeness appear in upcoming Red Dead Redemption downloadable content.

The only way you’ll know exactly when they are getting online for this specific type of session is by following them closely on Twitter and/or Facebook.

Further events and contests include:

  • Play with Rockstar San Diego – Every week the developers at Rockstar San Diego will be playing online.  See how you fare against some of the folks who built the game itself.
  • Rockstar Posse Challenge – Every Saturday to and through June 6th at HIGH NOON, take your chances against the Rockstar Posse.  If you draw, better be Picasso…
  • Rockstar Social Club Multiplayer Event – Live steaming video and chat sessions with Rockstars as part of the Social Club Multiplayer Events Series.
