Rockstar Teased A Possible Part 2 With Their Logo In Red, Time To Look Back At Red Dead Redemption
Rockstar Games teased fans today as they posted their logo online bathed in blood red background. To those who are eagerly waiting, this can only mean one thing - Red Dead Redemption 2 will be announced any hour, day, or week now.
Just hours ago, Rockstar posted on Twitter an image without any caption, just their company logo and that familiar tone of red in the background. Players rejoice as the long-awaited prequel for Red Dead Redemption will soon have details, possibly a launch announcement, to be broadcasted by the company.
The tweet seems pretty clever if you ask me. While most of us are in a positive state assuming that it is an a sign of Red Dead Redemption 2, at the very back end of our heads we are thinking, 'Is this for real, or is it a big internet troll?' It's not April yet so the joke thing is least probable. Well, there's only one thing we can do as of this point, wait.

While we await the coming of Red Dead Redemption 2's possible announcement and details, let's go back to the original game. Red Dead Redemption revolutionized modern-day open-world gaming. It even had almost perfect critic scores. Metacritic gave it 9.5 out of 10, 9.7 at IGN.
Red Dead Redemption is rich in content. From side missions to the main storyline, the game simply amazed me. I was busy at work but then but somehow I found ways to catch up with its western tale. The outline is simple yet Rockstar found ways to make it interesting. The game covers John Marston's story as he has to do 'favors' to the authorities to be able to save his family from captivity. Marston was a former outlaw with potential so the government took his family as leverage until he has done all his missions. On the process of completing his tasks, lots of ups and downs (mostly downs) happened but he persisted and got his family back, but something happened and I don't want to spoil it so I'll just leave it to you to read about it somewhere else or play the game yourself.
Gameplay and appeal
One amazing feature introduced in Red Dead Redemption is the 'Dead Eye' mechanic where the player can slow down time and mark targets, once 'slow' time runs out or the player decides that he's done with the marks; Marston will automatically shoot these target marks, just like Robocop. The game also uses 'morality' system where the player's choices at some points of the game will affect his allies' loyalty and how friends and enemies will react during confrontations. The game kept me on for months as it is a pretty long one, if recalled correctly it took me 5-6 weeks of nightly gaming with 2-3 hours per session.
Graphics and Sound
This was the first videogame that made my jaw drop when I tried hopping on a horse and the dust during the gallop is just too good to be true. Red Dead Redemption really harnessed the capabilities of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 during those times. Unfortunately, it was reported that Rockstar didn't consider the game to be ported to PC, it might have better graphics knowing the hardware PC can have compared to consoles, not to mention loads of awesome mods.
There you have it, that's my recollection of Red Dead Redemption. Hopefully for part 2, there would be a PC port. I'm pretty sure Rockstar has learned a lot from the original title so I don't have to mention its minor flaws here. Below is the trailer for Red Dead Redemption, for those who haven't played it yet, you should.
