If you've never stepped into the shoes of John Marston, don't be a fool, pick up this insane bundle with the main Red Dead Redemption game and the Undead Nightmare expansion DLC for just £6.49 on PS3.
Red Dead is one of the games we're hoping to see a sequel announced at this year's E3. Rockstar's sandbox cowboy adventures seminal piece of game design that deserves many more plaudits than the often generic GTA series. A close comparison of a more recent title would actually be The Witcher III. Seriously, get involved if you missed out last-gen.
Thanks to FantasyDeals.
Even without all the extra DLC included in this Game of the Year Edition of Red Dead Redemption, this game is huge. Offering so much more than GTA with coyboys, this gave the open world genre a vital spurred boot up the backside. You'll lose weeks of your life doing the side missions and looking for collectibles alone. In many ways, this was considerably better put together than GTAV. Fingers crossed Rockstar will revisit this series soon too.

Rockstar have kicked off a massive Xbox LIVE sale this week that'll see Bully available for three quid, L.A. Noire and Red Dead Redemption for under a tenner, and Max Payne 3 for less than £7.
The relevant DLC has all been heavily discounted too, and you can now see exactly how much things will cost thanks to the recent XBL update that nixed Microsoft Points in favour of "real" currency.Click here to read more...
Sony has announced that PlayStation Plus is headed to the Vita, which should allow subscribers to access the temporary sales across both platforms. Sony hasn't released a schedule as yet, but we'll keep you posted.
What we can tell you, however, is that Red Dead Redemption will be the star attraction of September's instant game collection on PS3.
We also learned that cloud save capacity will be increased from 150MB to 1GB before year's end, which is a whopping upgrade.
THQ's freshly installed president, Jason Rubin, has suggested that the company need their own Red Dead Redemption or Skyrim, and he says that Volition might be the team to provide it. Gone will be the days of the purple dildo for the dev studio, Rubin reckons it's time to get serious.Click here to read more...
The Guinness Book Of World Records revealed their choice for the best ever videogame endings last week, which was apparently canvassed from over 13,000 gamers. And we weren't happy about it. Numerous bizarre decisions prove that democracy sometimes doesn't work, so to combat this travesty, we've exhaustively argued, debated and thrashed out a list of our very own.
Gameplay and story are both equally important here, but they pale in comparison to one deciding factor: emotional impact. This can be anything from the exhilaration you'll feel after besting a massive boss or hectic final encounter, the joy of a happy ending, heartbreaking revelations or the satisfaction of seeing plot threads sewn tightly together. We hope you approve - and want to hear from you regardless.
Honourable Mentions (no particular order): Serious Sam: The Second Encounter, Modern Warfare, Golden Axe, Final Fight, Kingdom Hearts II, System Shock 2, Halo: Combat Evolved, Uncharted 2, Silent Hill 2, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Hitman: Blood Money, Black Ops, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Marathon Infinity, Heavy Rain, Half Life 2: Episode 2, Braid

Red Dead Redemption's one of those games I can play again and again. Riding across the Old West is great fun, whether you're stopping off at a saloon for a quick game of liar dice, or pursuing a few outlaws, which is a task that'll inevitably end in an enjoyable shoot out. You can get hold of the PS3 version of the game from either Gameplay, or Gamestation for £12.98, which'll save you almost £4 on the next best offer coming in from ShopTo.
So, it's been almost a year since Red Dead Redemption was released, and I'm pleased to report that it's still got me clocking up gameplay hours. If you've not played it yet, then this is a pretty good opportunity to get your hands on a copy for the 360, and you'll save yourself almost £3 on the next best offer coming in from ShopTo. Riding around the Old West as John Marston is rarely boring, and when you're not bringing outlaws to justice, you can always jump into a bar and settle down to a hand or two of poker.
If you're looking to take down some criminals with a quick shot from your revolver, or rob a train whilst concealing your identity with a bandana, then you might want to get on over to Gameplay's website so you can pick up Red Dead Redemption for £12.98 and make yourself a saving of almost £4 on the next best offer coming in from ShopTo. The main story should keep you riding through the Old West for a fair while, and there are plenty of other missions that'll crop up when you're on the road to keep your boredom at bay.

While you'd be forgiven for thinking Rockstar chose the current generation of consoles to help power their homage to the Old West, the reality is that Red Dead Redemption was originally planned for release on the Playstation 2 and Xbox, with certain geometry assets so dear to the developer they refused to update or remodel them when the game was eventually ported to next-gen consoles. That's according to Matt Kazan's online portfolio, a former Rockstar employee who spills the beans on quite a few Rockstar projects.Click here to read more...
So let's spice things up with a little cheer and optimism, as we list the most badass, lovable and just plain good protagonists who've arrived this generation. Introducing, The Top Ten 7th Gen Protagonists!
Let's kick things off with Platinum Games' shape-shifting, alluringly-proportioned witch, Bayonetta. She might not be the most well-written character - although it's much better to be so-bad-it's-good rather than just plain bad - but when you can summon dragons made of mystical hair and beat ten shades of holiness from demonic cherubs, you deserve a place on our list!
inFamous' crackling protagonist won over many a gamer's heart in 2009, with his so-gravelly-I-make-Christian-Bale-sound-like-a-schoolgirl voice and bald noggin. Despite his design being plucked from Superheroes 101, Cole was an eminently likable character whose journey you truly felt a part of. When Cole discovered a new power, fizzing in his palms, you experienced the same electrifying rush of possibility and potential.Click here to see which other sparkling central characters made Felix's top ten...
It's no secret that I'm a massive fan of Red Dead Redemption, but there are times when you're having a bit of mess around across the wind swept plains, hunting wild boar or outlaws, that you think to yourself "How can I spice this up a little bit?" Well, the answer's pretty simple, saddle up and get yourself over to Games Basement's website, where you can grab the Undead Nighmare expansion pack for almost a fiver cheaper than the next best price, which isn't bad considering you'll be rewarded with an ample injection of zombies!
When you've been riding around the Old West for a while, like John Marston, there's not a lot of things capable of sending shivers down your spine, but when the dead start rising and want nothing more than to rip the flesh from your bones it's time to lock your doors and grab your faithful shotgun. You can now get the zombie filled Red Dead Redemption add on from Zavvi for £12.85, which is about £3 cheaper than the next best offer, and it's definitely worth a look.
Red Dead Redemption is one of the best games of last year. In fact, that's a bit of an understatement considering the sheer number of industry awards that it managed to scoop up- including our own GOTY. If you've wrote off RDR as "Grand Theft Auto with horses" up until now, it's high time that you saddle up, enjoy the singleplayer campaign and form a posse online. Gameplay have matched their Xbox 360 price for the PS3 version, providing the cheapest price around.
If you’re an Xbox 360 owner looking to saddle up and shoot some gorram outlaws then this deal for the winner of Dealspwn’s Best Game of 2010 (and my favourite game of last year as well) should pip your interest. For those that held off purchasing last year, Red Dead Redemption lets you control former outlaw John Marston as he is forced by the Government to take out his old gang across an open-world sandbox filled with cowboys, gringos and evil cougars (seriously… god damn cougars.) Some gamers have found it a slow affair but it’s a beautifully visual game with a multiplayer segment to keep you going after the pretty hefty single player campaign, making it worth a look for the price. Thanks to jmhill @ HUKD!
In between Felix's deal going up yesterday and now, Microsoft have slashed the price of the Undead Nightmare Pack from 1000 points to get this . . . 400 points! Now that's a deal not to be ignored, and I for one am considering topping up my points to take advantage of this one! The premise of the expansion pack is simple, add a pinch of Old West style gameplay with a dash of zombies, and hey presto you've got yourself one tasty treat. Thanks to thisispaul @ HUKD.
