No. Not R2D2's cousin from the sticks.

The new Red Dead Redemption trailer.

It looks awesome and I am ridiculously excited.

Yes! Here's to all the doubting Thomases who claimed that this was just an internet rumor, doomed to roam development hell. I never lost faith.

There's something almost mystical about the Wild West, and this game lassoes and rides that spark well into the sunset.

I found the game itself to be frustrating to play, but I did enjoy the granular details to be found in that hybridized version of the American West.

My peers in education often talk of using technology to teach history to students. I wish one of those technophiles would find a way to convert gaming systems like this for the classroom.

And maybe the combat mechanics have improved on this model.

Loved RDR. It felt like a spaghetti western novel with characters who were elevated above the usual gaming tropes. Even though I could only get 'dead eye' to work twenty percent of the time...
