Zombies invade Red Dead

What game doesn’t need a few zombies in it? Red Dead Redemption is no exception. The new DLC Undead Nightmare dropped this past week on Oct. 26th.

I know I’ve been neglecting my Red Dead disk for sometime but this DLC look pretty sweet. Check the facts about the new adventure here…

Via xbox.com

Unleashed upon the world of Red Dead Redemption. The Undead Nightmare Pack features an entirely new single-player campaign that follows John Marston as he tries to find a cure for the highly-infectious undead plague spreading across the frontier. In addition to this epic single-player adventure, the Undead Nightmare Pack also features a brand new multiplayer mode in addition to new gameplay mechanics, weapons, undead animals and mythical creatures.

The pack will cost you 800 Microsoft points. Or if you buy the Undead Nightmare Collection you will get the Liars and Cheats Pack & Legends and Killers Pack along with the Undead Nightmare Pack. The collection will cost you 1600 Microsoft points. So if you haven’t shelled out for any of the DLC the collection might be the way to go.

Happy zombie hunting!

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.

Free Roam Fun

That’s how I spent most of my weekend, in a posse roaming the wide open lands of the Texas and Mexico. Nothing like doing what you want whenever you want in a video game. Head to a gang hideout and take out the banditos and criminals one by one for XP. Travel up north and team up to take down bears and other assorted big game.

Free roam is whatever you and your posse make it. And let me tell you, it just isn’t as fun without a group of friends. Sure, by yourself you can hoard all the XP from a gang hideout but you stand a bigger chance of dying multiple times. It’s also handy to have some friends near by when a cougar decides to jump you from behind. Those things come are fast and come out of nowhere.

Get your buddies together and make a posse. What’s that? They don’t have Red Dead Redemption yet? Then it is your duty to drive them to the closest GameStop or Best Buy and command them to BUY IT! It is just that freakin awesome.
