Flying Machine Technology Leaves a Lot to be Desired in Red Dead Redemption

This week in our Red Dead Redemption adventure, we're mopping up the final stranger missions, starting with the mission Daedalus and Son. In this mission we must help an amateur aviator named Charles Kinnear finish his flying machine by collecting a bunch of animal parts and red sage.

It's Time to Knife Some Cougars in Red Dead Redemption

Today in our adventures in Red Dead Redemption, we aim to become master hunters by knifing two cougars to death with our melee knife, then collecting their pelts. You'd think a master hunter would shoot them from a distance rather than get within slashing range of their terrible claws, but here we are. If we die, Horson gets all our stuff.

Show of the Week: Red Dead Redemption 2 and 5 Videogame Cowboys We Want in Our Posse

Show of the Week: Red Dead Redemption 2 and 5 Videogame Cowboys We Want in Our Posse

The recent Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer introduced Arthur Morgan, the somewhat sinister presumable protagonist of the Red Dead Redemption prequel who menaces people for money. If Dutch's gang is exclusively populated with jerks such as Arthur though, at least they have options for recruiting new blood; there are several games with excellent gunslinger characters they could bring on board, as we find in Show of the Week.

So join us as we ride out with Jack to procure some new cattle for the Marston ranch, then afterwards ride off to Mexico to do weird stranger missions as soon as the game will let us.

We Stumble Into Obvious Betrayal in Red Dead Redemption

It's Marston Monday and we're still in Mexico in Red Dead Redemption. Our patience for John's tolerance of the army is starting to wear thin, what with Coronel Allende kidnapping a bunch more women and cackling about how he's going to kill their families. On the plus side, Allende says he's captured Williamson and Escuella for us and has them tied up in a church in Chuparosa. Watch on to discover if that is the trap it most definitely sounds like.

We Get Into Some Sort of Standoff in Red Dead Redemption's Mexico

We Get Into Some Sort of Standoff in Red Dead Redemption's Mexico

Just because our family is being held hostage by the government, and we only have a limited amount of time to track down Javier Escuella, that doesn't mean that we can't have fun. So, this week in Red Dead Redemption, it's poker night, as we play a few hands with Landon Ricketts and his friends. Of course, it descends into a deadly gunfight, but that's just the old west. That was how you said goodbye back then.
