Red Dead Redemption

The co-founder of Rockstar, Dan Houser (he must be a seriously rich man by now), has been chatting to NowGamer about Red Dead Redemption and has stated that

“From a technical perspective, it was a complete nightmare”

We have previously seen rumours about the problems they were apparently experiencing developing RDR and it would be logical to assume that some of these problems were a result of the huge challenge that a game like RDR presents.

He goes onto say

“For the game to be fun and engaging and everything we hoped it could be, we had to include a huge range of classic western moments – stand-offs, duels, stagecoach fights, gunfights on trains, hold-ups, bounty hunting, and so on. This is the strength of the game, but doing this in a seamless way in a massive open world was a huge challenge.”

From my limited experience with the game I am pretty confident in saying that they have achieved this seamless integration and though there are obviously still some technical glitches I hope, and expect, the game to be virtually perfect when it gets released next month.
