Red Dead Redemption 2 Trailer: Tumbleweed Tease, But I’m Still A Betting Man

Beautiful, and had you inquired of me a few days ago, I’d have noted with a smile, exactly what I expected from Rockstar Games. Those with short attention spans whining all over the internet about this being more of a teaser than an actual full-on gameplay trailer packed with juicy plot spillage need to sloooowly slide away from the keyboards and step out for some air. It’s far too early to start dropping lengthy gameplay videos that will only be digested, incorrectly dissected and over-speculated on in every aspect by the usual suspects. My own preferences are to go in as cold as possible so the new game warms me up and is as spoiler-free as possible. Yeah, that’s how I roll and yes, it makes a game intensely more enjoyable when you don’t fire it up and know everything about what’s SUPPOSED to be a surprising *new* experience.

Where was I again? Oh, right? When has the company dumped out a long-form gameplay trailer for a game that’s about to over a year away? More importantly, when have they let you down with one of their major releases? Yeah, PC-only gamers will gripe about that question in regards to the first 2.5 Red Dead games (Revolver, Redemption, and Undead Nightmare). But that’s their own fault from suffering from system bias, I say.

That and, hell… if GTA V PC is any indication, you over-clockers and console blockers will get yours at some point, gloating about its superiority as soon as the system specs and first screenshots are revealed at the exact same “some point.”

So, get over it. Please.

Er, just not before us console owners loyal to the cause since the DMA Design days and prepping for a game destined to become an instant classic when it’s released for PS4 and Xbox One in 2017.

P.S.: Sneaky, Rockstar… SNEAKY. Getting Red Dead Revolver out on PSN almost a week ago and not telling me. Well, that goes on the want list, too. I just have the Xbox version in the game library at the moment, but hate setting up that system just for one game.

  1. I don’t know why people get up in arms about it. I mean, it’s meant to give you a feel of the setting and graphics. It’s the first trailer, not the final one.
    I’m really looking forward to this one, hopefully it will come to PC, but if it doesn’t I’ll play it on the PS4. Oh, and hopefully they’ll bring Red Dead Redemption over to PS4 and PC too.


    • It’s funny but not funny because this pattern repeats itself with every big Rockstar game. Teaser, complaints, waiting time, new longer trailer, whining, bigger trailers, more whining, rinse/repeat. Me, I trust them by now (hell, it’s been almost 20 years of playing games made or published by the company), so I know to expect quality and dedication to sticking to making great games from them, period.

      • Yeah, I know a few PC-only folks who don’t mind the wait and know Rockstar won’t forget them, lol. I think one is actually breaking down and buying a PS4 Pro next month just for a few exclusives and PS VR, butI know he’s going to get RDR2 because he’s a huge Rockstar fan.
