Let's Replay Red Dead Redemption: Snake Oil is Real, You Guys

Published 4 months ago by Andy Farrant

Oil be damned

In this latest episode of us replaying Red Dead Redemption, we help out snake oil salesman Nigel West Dickens, much to Mike's total lack of delight. West Dickens wants us to help him sell snake oil by drinking some, and then performing amazing feats of cowboymanship to impress a crowd of potential customers. Luckily for him, amazing cowboying is our stock in trade.

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.

Though some people (Mike) might not see the benefit of helping a conman sell poison to idiots, this is all part of our masterplan to use West Dickens' cart to trojan horse our way into Fort Mercer, there to apprehend our former outlaw partner, Bill Williamson.

To that end, we shoot a cow skull off a porch, a man's hat out of the sky, and the gun out of his hand when he later gets angry, presumably about the time we shot his hat full of holes.
