Review: Red Dead Redemption – Undead Nightmare DLC

Marston will be doing a lot of this during his adventures in Undead Nightmare.

I don’t often (or ever) purchase DLC. But, when I first heard about Undead Nightmare DLC for one of my favorite games of the year, Red Dead Redemption, I knew I’d purchase it. But should you?

Short answer: Absolutely.

Long answer: if you enjoyed Red Dead Redemption, and are looking for a Halloween-y themed game with terrific graphics, a great story, and some of the funniest dialog this side of GLaDOS, then you should run to your PS3, go to PlayStation Store and download this game right now. It is completely and utterly worth it.

After you download and install Undead Nightmare, you’re greeted with probably one of the greatest opening cutscenes in history. I laughed out loud a couple of times. Undead Nightmare plays itself off as a B-movie parody, and it’s pitch perfect. The laughter continues during Marshall Johnson’s mission, when a cutscene has John Marston return to Armadillo, and have a conversation with Armadillo’s resident homophobic, antisemitic racist bigot, Herbert Moon. After Moon launches into a tirade about how “Jewish British Catholic homosexuals” are responsible for the zombies infesting RDR’s world, he then walks away, and is almost immediately attacked by three zombies is by far the funniest part of the game.

Uncharted Novel Announced

While we wait to get our hands on Uncharted 3, it looks like we will be able to hold ourselves from fanboy exhaustion by reading “Uncharted: The Fourth Labyrinth” which will be written by Christopher Golden.

Nathan Drake will embark on an all-new, original, action-packed adventure-in search of a secret that will put him on the trail of the legendary labyrinth of Daedalus, and take him from the ruins of Crete to a secret crypt deep in the heart of China!

The book will not be a sequel or prequel but a stand alone story as to not take away from the game.

I for one will be jumping head first into this. It is scheduled to be released Fall 2011.
