READ DEAD REDEMPTION 3

Urgh...was Red Dead Revolver that forgettable

Theres just one thing with Red Dead 3 I don't want to see...I don't want to play as Jack. I hated that kid.

<spoiler>

I really wanted to see a new DLC for Red Dead where John lives so we could play as him in the next game. For me, as sad as it was, I just couldn't believe someone like John would sacrafice himself when knowing what Edgar Ross and Archer Fordham were like how did he know 100% that they wen't going to go after Abbi and Jack still.

They should of done a DLC where the government comes early for John but he's not there and kill Abbi and Jack for not telling them where he is. John then becomes a broken man and decides that with nothing to loose he will get revenge on the two corrupt agents with the help of the characters we've met throughout the game. John then lives the life of an outlaw at the end and Bonnie becomes closer to him....we all know she wanted him, hell I wanted him to go with her. Would of been like the Outlaw Josey Wales DLC

I'd go for a prequel, myself. The trouble is, RDR is right on the boundary between Wild West times and the modern age. Be nice to play an origin story of some kind.

Also, more B-movie add-ons! Undead Nightmare was amazing.

guitarded771541d ago

I'd go for a prequel. Red Dead Redemption was awesome.

@ VanillaBear
Yeah, Red Dead Revolver really was forgettable compared to Red Dead Redemption. Oh, and Jack was annoying as hell. If it's not John Marston or someone of the like, I don't know that it will be as good.

Oh_Yeah1541d ago (Edited 1541d ago )

Play as john marstons step dad. Who was one of the asians to come here during the gold rush who also knows kung fu. John marstons real dad was this guys best friend, they found millions in gold but then they were robbed, captured & enslaved by bandits who started up a mid western gladiator style colloseum with there riches...they had to fight with pitchforks, shovels, rakes etc. the loser gets finished off by gun....they were the best gladiator cowboys...then one day they had to face one another. The asain guy won, john marstons real dad said take care of my wife and son with his last words. The asain guy was set free and now wants revenge on this whole bandit ring using a mix of kung fu he learned from ip man and his shooting skills....sounds good to me lmao i should be a story writer for games. shit sounds awesome

Wenis1541d ago

It wouldn't be RDR 3.. there was only 1 RDR so far, but 2 'read deads'.

ZoyosJD1541d ago

"Red Dead Rebellion" is what ive heard for the third games name.

Prequel or otherwise, I can't wait to see what they produce.

Coogi1541d ago

Could it not be just a new game in general? Like a new character? I'm thinking it gonna be like in the 1870s or 80s. 20-30 years before but the story not even be related to John, just straight new and be able to SWIM?!

Or could be like 1920 or so when it comes to a end to the real wild west?

YodaCracker1541d ago

You don't actually believe those fake "leaked" documents that are coming out all the time, do you? Rebellion is a fake title.

SnotyTheRocket1540d ago (Edited 1540d ago )

Yeah, I was just about to say, It's not going to be called RDR2. I can't wait unil some type of announcment or teaser trailer/poster.

Kran1541d ago

You're saying Red Dead Redemption 3 as if the last game was Red Dead Redemption 2.

Red Dead Revolver
Red Dead Redemption

Probably will be something like:

Red Dead Revenge or something.

I wouldn't even be surprised if the next game told the story of John Marston as a bandit and how it all fell apart.

user54670071541d ago (Edited 1541d ago )

Yet if he inserted his own title for Red Dead 3 then it would seem silly since we don't actually know what it will be called.

To call it Red Dead Redemption 3 implies that it's the third game in the Red Dead franchise. I think thats his point

Kran1541d ago

@MikeCosgrove

Then just call it Red Dead 3 to avoid confusion.

user54670071541d ago

I would play that DLC that sounds like a much better ending for a game like Red Dead Remdeption.

Johm Marston finally finds out in the end that no matter how hard you try to find remdeption you will always be the person you were in the past...an outlaw.

Nimblest-Assassin1541d ago

I guess it was designed to be a bitter sweet ending. Even though you know John became a better man, and tried his hardest to shield his family away from that life... he just couldn't escape his past

The whole idea of red deads philosophy is the final story achievement/trophy Nature VS Nuture.... when Jack killed Ross was it because of how he was raised... or is it who he is supposed to be.

Many players played as a good guy, rather than an outlaw, because thats who they wanted him to be

I liked the ending, I thought it was very well done... with Jack taking revenge

But it sucked that you were stuck playing the rest of the game as him

Xof1541d ago

Er... no. Not even close.

Red Dead Redemption was -about- John overcoming his past. It was about him -redeeming- himself. What, you think they just chose that title randomly? Pay attention to the story.

You can't find redemption by running away from past deeds (which is exactly what John was doing prior to the game)... you can only find it by confronting that past.

Which, you know, is the plot of the game.

Not to mention all the stuff with that one god/angel/thing stranger.

The whole point of RDR is that you've got this guy with a nasty, despicable past, who recognizes his "sin" and runs away from it... only to be drawn back in against his will. The trials he faces forge him into a better man, and redeem most of his past sins. By dying at the end, he is given the chance to be FULLY redeemed... by God.

That was his final "test" so to speak. John Marston could have lived had he chosen to, but instead he chose to die--he committed the final, ultimate act of self-sacrifice and by doing so, erased his past evildoings.

Nimblest-Assassin1541d ago

Well your red dead 3 arguement is kind of invalid

Red dead redemption was a spiritual successor to red dead revolver.... its kind of like calling starhawk Warhawk 3.... it doesn't work

So it would be the third game with red dead in it, but it will be a sequel to redemption

And if it is true, i won't just throw money at the screen.... I will chuck my entire wallet at it

Heavenly King1541d ago

It would actually be Red Dead Redemption 2, because the first one did not had REDEMPTION IN THE NAME.

So, this would be the third game on the Red Dead series, but the 2nd Redemption game, if it ends up being called like that.

mafiahajeri1541d ago

he became pretty darn cool when he grew up...

MEsoJD1541d ago

Where's my pc verions!?!?

RDR sequel and Bully sequel would be amazing.

Psychotica1541d ago

Please have a PC version..

SKUD1541d ago

I agree. To many frame rate issues during my play through on the xbox. This also opens the doors to RDR mods. Do want.

Dovahkiin1541d ago

They have to... They missed out on a huge profit last time.

deletingthis346753341541d ago

Getting sick of people calling the next game Red Dead Redemption 2. Fun fact for everyone, RDR IS THE SECOND GAME! Its predecessor released on Xbox and PS2. Holy shit, didn't you know that?

Axecution1541d ago

I disagreed because, even though you're right, it doesn't matter in any way at all lol

strange19861541d ago (Edited 1541d ago )

Quit buggin. Everybody knows what they mean when they say RDR2.

brish1541d ago

Games in a series don't always increment the number for the next game in the series.

For example:
Call of Duty (game 1)
Call of Duty 2 (game 2)
Call of Duty 3 (game 3)
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (game 4)
Call of Duty: World at War (game 5)
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (game 6)
Call of Duty: Black Ops (game 7)
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (game 8)
Call of Duty: Black Ops II (game 9)

Another example is Final Fantasy.

3GenGames1541d ago

What happened to COD Finest hour? And Big Red One? And EU?!

Were you not playing games in the PS2 days or something?

jtenma1541d ago

@3GENGAMEs

You just owned yourself. COD 1 came out BEFORE BIG RED. So he would have had to.

brish1541d ago

@3GenGames

"What happened to COD Finest hour? And Big Red One? And EU?!"

I got the list of titles from a chart on here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

They didn't put Big Red One on the chart but they mention it later in on the page.

"Where you not playing games in the ps2 days or something?"

I was playing games on the PC. I've never owned a ps2.

optimus1540d ago (Edited 1540d ago )

@brish...I look at it the way activision wants everyone to look at it...as 2 separate games that no longer have anything to do with each other after cod 3... 2 separate developing teams producing 2 separate games. I'm still mad that activision hasn't dropped the cod moniker from 1 of them...

Read dead redemption doesn't tie into red dead revolver but it was and still is rockstar that developed it. They can easily tie both storylines together for the 3rd read dead and keep it consistent.

Nimblest-Assassin1541d ago

Fun fact:

Did you know that red dead redemption was the SPIRITUAL SUCCESSOR to red dead revolver

Red dead redemption was set in the same time period, but had nothing to do with the previous games locations, characters, etc

Thats what seperates a sequel from a spinoff/spiritual successor

Heavenly King1541d ago

The game would actually be called Red Dead Redemption 2, because the first one did not had REDEMPTION IN THE NAME.

So, this would be the third game on the Red Dead series, but the 2nd Redemption game, if it ends up being called like that.
