Looks like it's going to revolve around Marsden's gang days? Either way I'm predicting good things from this.

There's not much in that video. But it's enough... 8)

considered it but then remembered I stopped playing due to those awful race missions and couldn't face them again

Been contemplating going back to Gun. When I played Redemption first time, I went back to Call of Juarez.

It will be good.

But I'd rather see new IP.

I really enjoyed Gun. Some of the unlockables were cool too such as the armour-plated horse.

On a slightly related note, is Red Dead Revolver worth playing? Everybody goes on about Redemption but rarely does anybody mention the original game.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

It's easy, short, unpolished ... and will put a smile on your face if you're a fan of westerns. Play it if you get the chance.
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

I started it and realised there's just too much bloat to get through for a full replay. So I messed about in Free Roam multi for half an hour and then started in on the very excellent, and nicely streamlined, Call Of Juarez: Gunslinger.

Cheers :) . Will keep an eye on the bargain bins from now on then (probably passed over it many times already).

Cool. Love RDR, and it's Zombie counterpart :lol: Very, very keen to see a new Bully game :)

I found Revolver quite repetitive and gave up early doors, its a completly different style of game. Worth a shot to see if it gels with you, but don't go in with the high expectations I had.

Same here! Just started Gunslinger yesterday, it's awesome. And it was free with PS+, so even better in my book :lol:

I only recently played through Red Dead Redemption (must give Revolver a crack as well soon), and really enjoyed it, so looking forward to the sequel. Its games like this which will encourage me to buy into the PS4/XBONE generation. Love the western genre (film) so in games its a treat. I enjoyed the co-op missions as well. Haven't managed to quite fall in love yet with the Undead Nightmare pack yet, even though it is highly regarded (probably because i'm utterly sick of zombies).
