So it’s looking like Rockstar is listening to their community. Imagine that! A developer that listens to their fans. You wanted to play the mini games like poker and liars dice with your friends, you got it. And who wouldn’t want zombies in this game? So it looks like RDR has a lot more to offer. You might want to hold off on trading it in for that next pre-order.

Outlaws to the End

Yesterday the first round of DLC for Red Dead Redemption was released. The new four new co-op missions are free of charge. But for many(including myself), playing the new content was not an option yesterday. After downloading the missions I sat forever starring at the loading screen just to get into a free roam session. I finally gave up an went on to play something else.

According to Rockstar Games’ Twitter they have released a fix for the connectivity issues and other glitches for their MP. I look forward to teaming up with my posse to take on the new missions. Word is this DLC is only the first of at least three packs. But this first one is most likely the only one that will be free.

Bang Bang Shoot ’em up!

Sat down with a little Red Dead Redemption MP these past few days. Like the single player, I was totally hooked immediately. Spent some time in Free Roam just riding my mule (which i thought was hilarious the first time I whistled) finding other players to shoot down.

Being so used to FPS type MP it took some getting used to when I got into a real match. With like most MP you earn XP by killing other players or capturing objectives. XP will rank you up and get you off of that embarrassing mule you’ve been riding. Unlock new mounts, charaters, and titles by playing in matches and completing challenges.

A huge thing that win’s me over with this entire game in general is stat tracking!! Want to know how many people you’ve killed are how many animals you’ve skinned? Hit up the Social Club online to see your stats and MP leaderboards.

So peeps grab your posse and cowboy up in awesome RDR MP!
