Just like Red Dead Redemption taught us, when you fall off your horse you have to climb right back up (or find another one, at least). It appears Take-Two is firmly back in the saddle, despite the fact that there were no new Grand Theft Auto games released this year. Reuters reports that the compan...

There just ain't no stoppin' the Red Dead Redemption sales wagon train for Take-Two, as the company revealed today the game has shipped "nearly 8 million units worldwide since launching in May." The last status update we had was back in early September when RDR rustled up out nearly 6.9 million uni...

After it was all said and done, Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption took home the coveted Game of the Year prize from the VGA, besting Call of Duty: Black Ops, God of War III, Halo: Reach and Mass Effect 2. Other noteworthy winners throughout the evening include Costum...

We really wanted to tie the double XP offer in Red Dead Redemption to Thanksgiving in a thematic way, but there's little in common between the two things. They celebrate different periods of American history, and shooting a bunch of banditos and varmints is pretty far away from ... not dying of star...

Your record collection is looking a little ... rough around the edges. Don't get us wrong, we think it's great that someone out there owns the soundtrack to Men in Black on vinyl, and also, oh, is that Spin Doctors' "Homebelly Groove Live?" Nice. That's a ... classic. And wow! That's a lot of Micha...

With spooky narration and a silent John Marston riding through the evening rain, "Undead Nightmare" opens with an unsettling reintroduction to the protagonist's sleepy rural ranch. The reformed outlaw is still in the relatively quiet moments before Red Dead Redempion's memorable final act, but not ...

There are no doubt certain sticklers for authenticity who have problematized the spread of zombies in next week's Red Dead Redemption add-on Undead Nightmare. "The undead simply do NOT belong in the heretofore historically accurate RDR canon. Period," reads one hypothetical tweet, which might echo ...

Is Red Dead Redemption getting a bit stale? It's going to be a lot more stale come October 26 -- so stale it's rotten, in fact. That's when all the deceased cowpokes, banditos and even varmints rise from their graves in the Undead Nightmare DLC. The pack will run you $10 on Xbox 360 and PS3, and ...

The upcoming Undead Nightmare expansion for Red Dead Redemption is both a rather difficult and easy concept to grasp. On the one hand, it's hard to understand how or why this zombie plague is striking the American Wild West. (Rockstar still wouldn't talk about story details.) On the other hand, it'...

Most of the media we've seen from Red Dead Redemption's "Undead Nightmare" DLC paints the expansion's ghouls as decaying, hideous monsters. This latest batch is ... well, it's still pretty grim, but look at that guy in the picture above! The diffusive glow of his brain hole is just delightful....
