Let's Replay Red Dead Redemption: We Save Bonnie's Cows, Mostly!

Published 3 months ago by Andy Farrant

Herd the bad news

In this latest episode of us replaying Red Dead Redemption, we return to the main story missions to do some cowboying over at the MacFarlane ranch, much to Mike's dismay. He can't see why herding a load of cows helps us bring in Bill Williamson, but it's not for us or John Marston to question the mysterious path to Redemption in the Old West.

After I lost my Red Dead Redemption saves, we resolved to reclaim my 100 percent complete status by replaying my favourite game of the last generation - whetting our appetite for Red Dead Redemption 2, which is coming out on an unspecified release date in 2017, into the bargain.

This week, we discover John is naturally gifted at ranching, as we learn to rope and break wild horses, herd cattle, and prevent a nasty cow stampede during a storm.

But the pastoral peace is shattered when a local gang of wrong 'uns burns down the MacFarlane's barn and kidnaps Bonnie. Fortunately, John Marston is also naturally gifted at murdering entire gangs of bad cowboys.
