Red Dead Redemption

A man arrives, walks, sits, and travels.

Sorry for the delay, folks. We tried to get this up and running this morning but the server hamsters were on strike demanding clean water and fresh shavings. Since it's official Escapist policy not to negotiate with terrorists, we had to wait for a strike team of marmots to resolve the situation in our favor.

Business as normal.

A very reasonable response to this sort of crisis.

Can you at least pistol whip the snobbish old ladies and racist priest?

Also worth the wait.

You can too buy a Rainbow Unicorn. It comes with Undead Nightmare.

double post, sorry

Did anybody else expect an "and yet, the armadillo" reference at the end?

I was hoping.

Also: Loading, Ready, Redemption.

Hamster only cost like a buck a piece and live a year. You could have just flushed the striking ones down the toilet and bought new ones. That is how I roll.

Anyhow that being said I love all of the racist and off color talk in this. I'm not condoning racism or whatever, but it is hilarious hearing it.

And also, anybody else, while we have your attention can anybody else hear 'Armadillo' as a placename without thinking of that Danish fort in Afghanistan?

You not condoning racism is precisely WHY it is hilarious, I think, because you're not used to hearing or comprehending it as part of daily life or conversation, so you';re ok.

That accent was actually pretty good, Graham.

Also, calling a ship Blackwater is disgusting.

No, I hear it fairly regularly, I've been on x-box live. *rimshot*

But it is more of you don't see it in media all the often in this day and age or when you do you see the completely ugly horrible side and how it is just totally destroying lives. While here it is presented as if there isn't any other way and it is perfectly acceptable in these peoples minds. Kind of like how Blazing Saddles is also hilarious.

I laughed hard when you guys said, "You can kill all the people you want, but pushing a kid proves you're a true bad man." Haha that was cool. Not the exact words, but I was laughing a lot. This was indeed a good review and I sure loved it. Also blackwater does sound nasty, they need to come up with better names..

Man, Red Dead has gotten perfect scores with an opening that SHITTY? RAGE!!!

It was super sterotypical and didn't show ANYTHING about the main character or what the hell was going on!

Pretty nice episode, though i was kinda puzzled when a new Unskippable appeared at midnight.
I've never truly learned on what day a new episode of any show on the Escapist appears.
The only show i was able to remember correctly was Doraleous& Associates.

Also: loved the explanation about why the video was late.

Ah, the train ride. One of the worst opening cinematics I've ever seen.
It seemed like it took forever for those old people to shut up before the game actually started. What a pain.
I was almost against watching this only because of having to sit through that cinematic again.

It's not the cost of acquisition; it's all the specialized training.

Wow, way to block that guy's way Marston. Inconsiderate prick.

if i would have been on that train to armadrillo with those people ...
i would have gotten right on the next train back to tasty black-water.
on the other hand ... i see crazy people on the train each and every day on my way to work...
that s what public-transportation is like and seems to have been ever since it was created.

I really didn't think there was enough for you guys to work with on this one. As for your hamsters, I hope you weren't giving them...
Blackwater

Personally, I wanted John to turn around and shoot those old ladies in the face. What bitches!

Uh, guys? With the current labor protests and (putting it very nicely) executive overreach in Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan, and elsewhere, this attempted joke rings a little hollow.

And, honestly, do you want to be thought of as the type of people who make hamsters live in their own filth and drink dirty water? I mean, what would your subscribers think?

I really hope the main character is a silent protagonist after spending that much of the opening cut scene not speaking.

Although, I actually thought it was well done. It did a good job setting the scene and while you don't know anything about his past (or what he needs redemption from) you can tell that his rugged appearance contrasts with the world that they other passengers are talking about.

But that doesn't mean it isn't okay to mock it mercilessly.

Oh yeah, I completely forgot about that endless cutscene. I understood the underlying "the old west is modernizing" theme after the first few sentences, so to make that train ride that long seemed very unnecessary.

The internet fo serios.

omg i laughed to tears at the armadillo bit

"Here. We build here, on this armadillo"

Is it me or is that Priest totally trying to get into thick bitches lacy drawers?
I can see the next part of their conversation ending with the line
"Well my child, if you come to my room I can show you right from wrong"

The scene would be better if we just could kill the priest, the old ladies and tie the girl to the railway.

I actually have a Yahoo group for people who enjoy eavesdropping and airing out their pits. Think he'd join?

I remember watching that for the first time, and at the end thinking, "What the fuck did that have to do with anything?!".

he got those scars from a cou.....

those damn server rodents; my mother has squirrels in her computer and they just will not let the dang thing run properly

as did I, thoough it would be particularly difficult to build an entire town on a single armadillo, much less keep it still for the unknown amount of years the town would stand

people were so silly back then
