I looove anything associated with the old west. So naturally an open-world sequel to Red Dead Revolver has me excited. If you listen closely towards the end of the trailer you'll hear Bill Paxton's voice. Pretty cool!

Follow the link I've provided to watch the debut trailer in HD.

Yes! I loved Red Dead Revolver despite its flaws and remember hearing that Rockstar had some Old West project in the works that was rumoured to be a sequel. Now I finally get confirmation.

So am I. Gun was good, it just lacked the depth and length (that's what she said!) that I was looking for. Between this and Red Faction, it's going to be an expensive summer.

I don't like the weapons in these old west or civil war games. I wanna blow shit up and Red Faction is more to my liking.

Like Rockstar has ever done an action game that doesn't involve shit blowing up. I guarantee dynamite is involved, gatling guns, and God knows what other boomy type goodies.

I just won't get excited about a videogame set in the old west until it gets praised across the board and I play a demo.

Ditto, the engine they're using for destroying stuff is definately up my ally. Never played the first, but I will definately give it a try since you guys say it's so good. Is it on xbox?

Awesome, awesome, just plain awesome! Just the random stuff you encounter riding around is worth it. I came to a camp, guy called me over, when I went over he started shooting at me so I killed him. After he was dead a woman started calling for me to help her, she was tied up by his tent and all over the ground were body parts and bones, and more in the pot over the fireplace cooking. Cannibals ftw, heh

Game is awesome. Traded in Modern Warfare 2 for it. The guns are awesome. Yesterday I was fighting a friend and killed him with a stick of dynamite that hit him in the head.

Hogtie a woman and put her on some train tracks. Wait for a train to come and run her over (mustache twirling is optional but recommend) and you'll be rewarded with an achievement. Love this game, and I hated GTA4.

GTA 4 if definitely the better game especially in terms of storytelling, but Red Dead uses the formula and open world concept to great effect. The ending of this game was incredibly inspired. Not everyone is going to like it and I think Rockstar made one truly bad choice with it, but conceptually and in execution the ending is unlike anything I have ever experienced.

OK, what's the ending? I want to check this out but I don't like Rockstar very much because GTA just isn't a very good game. The driving is horrible which is a big part of it and yet they make a perfectly awesome racer. It doesn't make sense.
