Afternoon Quickie: Red Dead Redemption

XBox 260 and PS3

So, I really haven't watched much of this game, but I think I get the gist of it. You are some sort of cowboy type character. You run around and do missions and kill people. I assume there exists an overarching plot line, but I'm not aware of it.

Here's what stands out to me. It's a little like an old style western. Quite dramatic but rather rugged. It looks rather cool as far as the graphics go, but it's just not all that pretty to watch. As far as game play goes there are gunfights and whatnot that are common to games like this, but you get to watch the character ride a horse all over the place and that's pretty neat. Probably the worst thing I noticed in the game was the skinning of dead animals. You don't just skin the animal to sell the pelt, the game shows the corpse of the animal all fleshy and skinless and that's just plain nasty.

So, does it pass the Wifey Watchability Test? Eh, I guess so. It's a little gross, and it's a bit boring, but really nothing special to report from me.
