Red Dead Redemption


Rockstar is finally back at it with a follow-up to the 2010 video game Red Dead Redemption, the western based version of Grand Theft Auto. Red Dead Redemption 2 should hit store shelves in the Fall of 2017 for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. While there was no announcement of a PC version, it would be surprising if one wasn’t available with the others or at least hot on the heels of the Fall 2017 release date. Check out the trailer below. (more…)

When you watch the latest trailer for Grand Theft Auto V (aka GTA:V) one word seems more appropriate than all others to describe what you are seeing: ambition.

The world is bigger (as big as the last 2 games and Red Dead Redemption combined according to The Guardian) and it is completely open to us from the first play.

Every picture and frame we’ve seen screams for us to notice the intricate detail work. Los Santos is LA and it is fantastically rendered.

This is more than hollow beauty though. The story — headlined by three crimey protagonists named Michael (the old one), Franklin (the young one), and Trevor (the loco one) — seems equally intricate, with a focus on massive heists and tremendous action set-ups, like a firefight in a helicopter. Oh yeah, the world is that large because flying is a huge part of the game. So is our ability to switch between the three main characters, meaning this game should be as re-playable as it is cinematic.

That’s really all I got, but I advise you too go read both The Guardian’s and IGN’s hands on previews as they contain a lot more information and notes from Rockstar’s development team.

GTA:V comes out this Spring and once it does, you won’t see me for months. Here’s the second trailer.


Welcome gaming bastards to another edition of G.R.O.W. This is NerdBastards weekly video game release list where we give y’all a heads up on what was released for the consoles and PC. We also cover downloadable titles as well.

Tomorrow, we a got beautiful game coming out that will probably be overlooked and a remake of a SEGA Genesis franchise that is looking bloody good. Also, on Wednesday, PS3 fanboys will FINALLY get their hands on a driving-sim game that has been delayed many times.  So what are y’all waiting for? Check after the jump to see if there is anything coming out that will make your wallets cry!

Also, a quick side comment: Really Nintendo? A F*(#!^G Silly Bandz game!?! Really?!?



Leave it to Hollywood to try to make a movie out of something that got popular in no time. It seems that we may be getting a possible movie adaptation of Rockstars recent hit western game, Red Dead Redemption, and that Brad Pitt may be out John Marston (the main character of the game). If you haven’t played the RDR game, it’s an open world game set in the old west of 1911. The game has been selling well and has received many good reviews so it may not be a big surprise that Hollywood wants to make a movie out of it.

What do you guys think? You think Hollywood will be faithful and produce a good western flick or are we going to get something crappy since that is the faith of most video game movies? If this does indeed happen, I would like to see some people jumping off cliffs with their horses and see the awesome rag doll mechanic work its magic.

Red Dead Redemption

Ya know, it’s been an awesome couple years of video games. Batman: Arkham Asylum, Red Dead Redemption, Bioshock, Dead Space… the list can go on (and if any of you nice readers likes to buy these games for this poor bastard, contact me). Each having its own fun gameplay, good story, and of course, nice graphics to look at.

Well,  junkboy has been making images of todays popular games  in 8-bit form, pretty much giving them a demake look that older gamers will appreciate. He’s done quite a lot of them, like the Red Dead Redemption one above, so check after the jump to look at all of them and see if your favorite game is on there. (more…)
