Red Dead Redempted

13 Jun

My latest game review is up at Paste – it’s of Rockstar’s questionably-named-but-really-cool new western opus Red Dead Redemption. I’m happy with this one; it’s been fun to work on getting things more comprehensive without losing depth, and really trying to focus on what I thought the game was attempting to accomplish rather than just what it managed to pull off. It helped that the game was both really ambitious and a ton of fun to play.

I also took a more in-depth look at two specific aspects of the game over at Gamer Melodico. First, I marveled at its incredible audio design (because I mean seriously) and a week later I invoked Al Swearengen to help me voice some of my frustrations about its flawed storytelling.
