There is no trilogy, only two games I had a nice time playing. There was never à third game, just like there was never a fourth Indiana Jones.

Indeed, but unfortunately, if you say trilogy it means CoJ Cartel is the last game.

Yes, the first two CoJ's were great westerns. I'd love to play more. Gunslinger was good but........ only good.

Not sure it means that at all. I meant a trilogy of CoJ, CoJ:BiB, CoJ:G with engine updates and such for PC and consoles.

There was original 2006 Call of Juarez, Bound in Blood, and Gunslinger, so yeah.

Call of Juarez: June 2007

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood: July 2 2009

Call of Juarez The Cartel: July 21 2011

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger: May 22 2013

Now let me remind you of the principle of a trilogy: first three games/movies of a franchise.

Now if Techland want to pretend they never developed The Cartel, fine by me.

Always trying be a smart ass. I'm getting tired of your comments and general attitude. Maybe I'm not getting Russian humor, or maybe you're simply not funny. I would love to be rude but we're way too polite in France to play that little game of yours.

    KORNdog @Moonwalker: as i said, they're friends. not just "we see each other once ever 5 years at an award show" "friends". but actual friends. things were obviously going to be personal. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Nothing with calling the company out but we had that last year already. And showing Hideo respect is cool but I thought this was way too much. (1 Hour ago)

    KORNdog back to geoff though, i honestly appreciated seeing some emotion come from those cold, dead mountain dew sponsored eyes. the guy is a lifeless husk most of the time. (1 Hour ago)

    KORNdog @Moonwalker: i think they've been friends for years. when you have a stage, why not use it to call out a company and their BS? (2 Hours ago)
