Red Dead Revolver! New Screens!

The game that avoided Boot Hill rides high!

Posted by Staff
Is that Clint Eastwood? No of course not, that would cost loads of money. It must be Dave Eastwood, his surprisingly similar (in both name and appearance) cousin. Or something.

Anyway it doesn't matter, because the cowboy bloodbath that is Red Dead Revolver escaped its almost certain trip to Capcom's videogame Boot Hill and now resides in Freedom Town at the leisure of Take 2.

As you may remember, the ultra-violent western game was canned by Capcom late last year, with no real explanation being offered. Those lucky enough to have caught a glimpse of the game were most displeased, as it was shaping up to be a gritty, bloody, mission-based cowboy epic.

However, Take 2 has all the abilities of a great white shark, able as it is to smell blood from miles away. And enough claret was leaking from the code of Red Dead Revolver to make it a must-acquire asset for the controversy-loving publisher.

Expect detailed impressions from E3, where the game will feature prominently on Take 2's stand. The latest release info points towards an April roll-out on Xbox and PlayStation 2.

?

Looks like a 3D remake of on old arcade game whose name slips my memory right now...
It was a 2D side-one scrolling shoot em up, with minor platform elements - your character could jump up onto balconies very mich like Rolling Thunder. Between sections, a stampeed of buffalo would charge at you, and you'd have to jump in the backs to avoid being crushed. Later levels you were on horseback riding next to a railroad when a train would pul alongside and you be shooting at the attacker on the train.

...anyway... The point being the screens just don't give you any clue about the game other than it being a 3D cowboy thingy. Wow.

Are you sure that Nephilim is not an americanism, like Aluminum?

Surely the correct term is Nephilium. With atomic number 129 Nephilium occupies position 78 in the periodic table of goth bands.
