From New Austin to Nuevo Paraiso, we explore the motives and personalities that make up the plot of Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption.

Last week Nick, Tom, and Rick discussed the world and game play of Red Dead Redemption in a spoiler-free episode.

This week, Chris is back with the posse, and we delve into the storytelling and overall plot of Red Dead Redemption.  We look at the motives of John Marston, as well as those of the cavalcade of characters that make up Rockstar’s western. Spoilers abound, so consider yourself warned.

This podcast is also available via iTunes.
