We’ll do another simultaneous singleplayer game this week, this time looking at Rockstar’s
look at the Communist scare of the 1950’s and the transformative nature of freedom and the First Amendment game about horses. At least I think it will be singleplayer: we’ll meet up on a chat and start playing it in single player on whatever platform we have the game on, but if we have a critical mass on one or more of the platforms, we might give multiplayer a try part way through.
Not sure whether we’ll do the chat on Skype or Ventrilo this week; Roger will be leading things, so he can say in the comments. We’ll meet at the usual time of 9:30 EST / 6:30 PST.
I’ll have to miss this week, I’m afraid. Out of curiosity, though, what does the “red dead” part of the title actually refer to?
I don’t have RDR and I’m pretty broke, so I probably will not be attending this week.
Unfortunately, I don’t have RDR, either.
I’d be very interested in playing David’s strikethrough game re McCarthyism, however. But that’s only because I’m a very particular sort of nerd.
I may be alone, then, I suppose. I really don’t know what “Red Dead” is supposed to mean.
If there’s anyone else, we’ll chat on Vent, unless all the other attendees are playing on XBox, in which case we’ll chat on XBL.
Alright, I’ll fire the game up on XBL at 9:30 Eastern and ride around for a bit. If anyone else is interested, I’m TinPeregrinus on XBL–I won’t have Skype or Vent up unless someone declares him or herself here to be planning on playing on another platform. I hope to play with others, but if not, I can ride into the sunset alone just fine.
It gets lonesome out there right around Pike’s Basin, when you’ve roped a bronco and hogtied a cattle rustler for good measure. A man gets to thinkin’. He gets to thinkin’ about how the game really does have some marvelous things about it. And then a man hears his own voice sayin’ something like “I never did care much about religion.”
