Face off against 'Mad Dog' McDog in Gunstringer Real Big Shootin' DLC


Twisted Pixel has officially raised the curtain on the latest Gunstringer DLC, first announced via Major Nelson yesterday. The "Real Big Shootin'" DLC pits players against 'Mad Dog' McDog "who is out to slander your good name as the quickest draw in the west." What that boils down to, apparently, is four acts of gameplay more akin to a midway shooting gallery than the narrative found in the main game.

Real Big Shootin' will be released on Xbox Live tomorrow for 240 Microsoft Points ($3).

Announcing: Real Big Shootin'
The Gunstringer's Second Edition Of Fine DLC Content Hits XBLA

Dec. 13th, 2011 - Austin, TX - Today Twisted Pixel and Microsoft Studios are pleased to announce a new batch of add-on content, Real Big Shootin' for The Gunstringer. In this chapter of the VGA-nominated Kinect title, you find yourself going up against "Mad Dog" McDog who is out to slander your good name as the quickest draw in the west. He will throw any challenge he can at you to trip you up, so make sure your wits are sharp and your guns are hot!

Play through four acts of "shoot-em-up" gameplay with several challenges per act, facing everything from jet-pack minions, dynamite bombardment, metal dudes, and flying cows. With a host of weaponry at your disposal, train your good eye on all incoming obstacles for a chance to face off against McDog himself. You can also team up with a buddy for turn-based co-op to assist in shooting down that mangy no good dog. All this for 240 Microsoft Points!
