Surprised, but delighted at the news. I played Revolver back in the day, and yes, it did have its flaws, but it was different. And it's being made by San Diego, who developed MCLA. Looking forward to horse + shooting.

these are splendid news! Really looking forward to this one, plus the engine seems to fit better to this game than to GTAIV :)
definitely on my watchlist!

Wow, now that is a pleasant suprise! Color me interested... dare I say that looks like the 360's renderer? It's nice to see some interesting suprise announcements...

I remember the RAGE engine being much more impressive in the demo...

It baffles me why there aren't enough western games. This is firmly on my radar.
Commented on 2009-02-04 23:08:34
The old west has plenty of potential which is pretty much untapped in videogames thus far, looks interesting...
Commented on 2009-02-04 23:19:06
oh my god the ground is soooo bumped >.< I really hate when devs do that lol. It doesn't actually look like anything but crapiness... Especially when yo have low AA. Other then that looks ok. Hopefully the game is good. I've always been interested in seeing a good western game.

im not really sure if an open world will suit this sort of game....i mean, that first screenshot doesnt exactly make me think "wow, i cant wait to explore this area"

environment wise it looks incredibly boring. so heres hoping the towns and cities are a little closer together then that first screenshot implies.

other then that tho, i really liked the first one so im looking forward to this. cant see it being more then a rental tho.

looks meh , but looks can be deceiving. played first one , was interesting.
but if this game will be something like GTA IV in graphics difference between PS3 and 360 versions , then honestly screw this game.

Well Red Dead Revolver was a fun game so i'll ahve to keep my eye on this...if it turns out to be just GTAIV with a western look i won't give a crap but if it's anything like it's predecessor i'll have to get it :)

I'm a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge western fan, I would sell my soul and all future children for a GTA style game set in the old west.

lol it takes place in the Wild West, of course the environment is going to be boring! and what game isn't more than a rental these days? looks really good though

Eh... What I'd really like to see is a Japanese take on the wild west! ...In a non-eroge form anyway ;)

If you know what I'm talking about, you are a cool guy.

Like Trigun?

reminds me 3:10 yuma

the old is untapped in the video game industry, lots of worlds can be made from it

Ahh you beat me to it. :P

I never played Red Dead Revolver, I wonder if it'll be required to fully understand the story line?

I'm afraid you are wrong. The first Red Dead Revolver was also by Rockstar. You seem to have mistaken it with Darkwatch (by High Noon Studios for Capcom).

Redemption really looks good. A sure buy for me, I love open world games ...

The original Red Dead Revolver started as a capcom project (developed by San Diego based Angel Studios). The project was put on hold due to various reasons. Rockstar later acquired Angel Studios (which is now Rockstar San Diego), and they thought it would be a good idea to resurrect the game.

The second to last screen I think sums up what this game will be all about - atmosphere. R* know how to tell a good tale, so this could be one to watch!

Did anybody else catch that? Is it supposed to mean something?
