One to Watch: Red Dead Redemption

While everyone is out and about playing with their Commander Sheep, I’ve been scouring the internet looking into the future. One of my favorite games of all time is Outlaws (why is this not on Steam?), a spaghetti-western created by LucasArts. Although there have been a few western-themed games released since then, none of them have been able to capture for me the gritty wild west.. Maybe Rockstar’s sequel to Red Dead Revolver (which I just played this year—meh, too restrictive), Red Dead Redemption will change all that. Here is one of the few titles I look forward to this year.

LucasArts on Steam

I actually screamed, “WHAT?!?” when I read this at my desk: LucasArts will be on Steam starting July 8. I was just lamenting not having a copy of my 5th greatest PC game of all time. It’s time to return to The Dig. (Funny LucasArts titles take four of my top five.) If priced right, I might get Republic Commando as well. No word on Tie Fighter or the other X-Wing games.
