Red Dead Redemption multiplayer XP challenge for Avatar awards begins

Posted on January 19, 2011

With all of the planned DLC out the door and a shelf full of Game of the Year awards to display, you might think Rockstar is done riding the Red Dead Redemption train — but not so fast, pardner. A Rockstar XP challenge is now underway in the Wild West shooter which has players collectively earning XP in the multiplayer modes towards unlocking special Avatar awards for Xbox Live and PlayStation Home for everyone. The items include system-specific versions of both the RDR T-shirt and John Marston’s in-game Elegant Suit.

Of course, each system’s goodies will only unlock when the totals for the platform are met. You can watch the bars rise on the official Rockstar Games newswire or Social Club site. What’er you waitin’ for, cowboys and cowgirls? Get to yer XP earnin’!

Redeem double XP in Red Dead Redemption this weekend

Posted on November 25, 2010

We really wanted to tie the double XP offer in Red Dead Redemption to Thanksgiving in a thematic way, but there’s little in common between the two things. They celebrate different periods of American history, and shooting a bunch of banditos and varmints is pretty far away from … not dying of starvation.

Actually, there is one nice way to connect the two — the “gluttony” theme, but Rockstar done already used it in its announcement of the event, which runs from Thursday through Sunday. “Stuff Yourself with 4 Days of Red Dead Redemption Double XP.” So clever! That leaves us with, like, “this deal is no turkey!” We’re going to go cry into a pecan pie now. Enjoy some RDR this weekend.

Another zombie infested trailer for Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare

Posted on October 14, 2010
This trailer shows that Rockstar can craft a horror filled experience.

As Halloween creeps ever so closer, that means we’re close to getting something truly amazing: the Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare DLC pack.  Not only am I excited for the Undead Nightmare DLC because I’m a huge RDR fan, but because it has zombies that are actually given a narrative context for existing in an otherwise real world.  That alone has the Undead Nightmare pack in the running for me as the best DLC to be released this year.
