Red Dead Redemption’s Biggest Unsolved Mysteries

Red Dead Redemption’s Biggest Unsolved Mysteries

In the eight years since Red Dead Redemption released, players have explored every inch of its grassy plains, desolate deserts, and snow-capped peaks. During a misguided extermination quest, we discovered that the “man-eating” Bigfoot actually eats berries. We uncovered – and maybe even stopped – the cannibal behind a rash of disappearances in Armadillo.  We even aided our grave-digging friend, Seth, in finding buried treasure from a bona fide treasure map.  

So, how many mysteries could possibly remain in this well-traveled world? Plenty. Red Dead Redemption features events no one speaks of, locations that defy explanation, and people who took secrets to their graves. Though theories and speculation abound, Rockstar has kept some revelations close to its vest.      

Which is why, with the release of Red Dead Redemption II next week, we are examining everything we know about the game’s biggest unsolved mysteries. Dead men tell no tales and many things can be lost to history, but maybe the western’s sequel can spin us an illuminating yarn or two.

10 Spoiler-Free Tips For Solving Puzzles In Return Of The Obra Dinn

Return Of The Obra Dinn, the latest game by the creator of Papers, Please, is one tough puzzle game. I spent 12 hours running down the fates of every single crew member during my review of the game, often getting off track and trying to figure out how to get back on the path to answers. What follows are some spoiler-free tips I gleaned to help you if you get lost or are fumbling around for an answer.

Best of luck, inspector.

1.  Be Prepared To Backtrack...A Lot In Obra Dinn, there are a large number of fate scenarios you have to investigate. However, you're not going to get every answer you need from just observing them once. You're going to have to return to all of them, many times, throughout your journey in order to establish character relationships and question hypothetical answers you've made.

The Good And Bad Of Dark Souls On Switch

The Good And Bad Of Dark Souls On Switch

Dark Souls releases on Switch tomorrow and it will be the first time a Souls game has appeared on a Nintendo console, and the first time it will be available on a handheld platform. It’s a new adventure for the original Dark Souls, despite releasing seven years ago, and we’ve spent some time with it in order to offer some feedback.

The biggest question about Dark Souls on Switch, since its announcement, has been how will it run. The good news is, it runs well. I have played about five hours of the game with about 70% of that time happening in handheld mode, and I haven’t noticed any significant slow-down. Rolling through big collections of destructible barrels, fighting large enemies, and taking on lots of smaller enemies has all been fine. The framerate is consistent, even if it is not hitting the 60 FPS it hits on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Even Blightown, which you can see in the video above, is solid. It’s still a dangerous hell-hole filled with poison and gross insects, but the Switch handles it admirably.
