Disturbing Stuff Found In Red Dead Redemption 2

Disturbing Stuff Found In Red Dead Redemption 2

An excellent successor to Red Dead Redemption 1, this game is well known for its ridiculously massive open world, with every single detail perfected down to the last blade of grass. Rockstar really went all out on this one! Sure, the graphics are extremely impressive, impressive enough to be called a step up from most video games that are around these days, but all things considered, RDR2’s open world definitely takes the cake as the best part of this game.

Of course, that doesn’t come as a surprise since Rockstar is clearly a master when it comes to the genre of open world. Considering Rockstar’s previous track record, from their 2005 game ‘Bully’, as well as their long-running franchise, Grand Theft Auto, players expected nothing less with the release of RDR2, and they certainly haven’t been let down.

If you have played GTA V (I mean, who hasn’t?), then you may be familiar with Rockstar’s habit of stuffing their open worlds with subtle Easter eggs and mysteries, which is exactly what they have done with RDR2… just about 10 times as much. Of these Easter eggs and mysteries, plenty of them are horrific and that’s what will be touching on right now.


Stranger Mission: American Dreams

Rockstar isn’t exactly shy about their horrific content, which is also the case with most other video game design companies, and there is plenty of gruesome stuff you can find scattered all around the expansive Wild West, with some of them included as parts of missions. One of the first gruesome things that you’ll come across when playing RDR2 is the string of murders performed by a serial killer. Here, you will investigate a series of mutilated bodies strung up across trees and boulders in an attempt to find the person who butchered them. Sure, mutilated bodies and people ripped off in half isn't something new in the world of video games, but combine the terrific graphics of the game with Rockstar’s tremendous attention to every shred of the dead person’s gushing insides, and you’re bound to feel creeped out with every drop of blood that slowly drips from the dead corpse.

Of course, your mission has to continue, so the serial killer conveniently leaves you a piece of a map that will eventually let you figure out his hideout, and of course, the map will be stuffed into his victims’ mouth. So, once you try to retrieve it, you’ll have the pleasure of watching the poor guys’ head fall right off.

Oh, by the way, did I mention? Once you figure out the serial killers’ hideout, you gotta go take a look, and that place is… let’s just say… not the type of place you’d want to host a kid’s birthday party.

The Night Folk

Next up on the list of horrifying stuff, are the Night Folk. These guys are a bunch of psychopathic killers who hang out near the swamp, and you are most likely to encounter them during the night. Yeah, the swamp… at night. I mean, you’d think the swamp was creepy enough during the day, what with all the crocodiles and snakes, but now you have to go into the misty swamp during the night, with nothing but a lamp to light your way. In any other video game, this wouldn’t be so creepy, but the sights, the sounds, and the immersive experience RDR2 provides really gives you the chills.

Imagine walking along this misty swamp when you suddenly see a woman, completely dressed in white, crying near a small fire. Or how about a freshly bloodied dead body tied to a tree?

red dead redemption 2, rdr2, rdr2 secrets, red dead redemption 2 secrets, red dead redemption 2 disturbing, red dead 2, red dead 2 secrets

No? What about a dead body that has been tied to a tree for years?

red dead redemption 2, rdr2, rdr2 secrets, red dead redemption 2 secrets, red dead redemption 2 disturbing, red dead 2, red dead 2 secrets

It’s all part of the joy the Night Folk provide.


The KKK

While traveling across the Wild West, you may come across a bunch of enterprising individuals having cult meetings, namely, the KKK.

red dead redemption 2, rdr2, rdr2 secrets, red dead redemption 2 secrets, red dead redemption 2 disturbing, red dead 2, red dead 2 secrets

Since this encounter occurs in the woods during the night, you may consider it creepy, but there is also a pretty funny side to it. In the very first meeting, you’ll hear the leader of the cult mention that their numbers are waning, and while they blame the Congress for that, you’ll soon see that it’s for the most part, due to their own stupidity. Here, the cult is introducing a new member to their ranks, and as initiation, the new member lights a huge cross on fire right before the flames get to him, setting him on fire as well. Moral of the story? Long robes and fire don’t mix! You will also meet the KKK on to other separate occasions where they end up doing something stupid and killing themselves. Or you can save them the embarrassment and kill them yourself. You can kill any of the members of the KKK without having to worry about your honor points degrading, so go ahead, knock yourself out.


What About the Kids?

Now, the game itself is inherently violent and you’ll encounter a lot of terrible stuff on the way, but maybe you aren’t content with watching other people do bad stuff. Maybe you want to be the terrible one? Well, go right ahead, because there is absolutely nothing stopping you! But of course, do remember that being a terrible guy will get you a terrible reputation. No one takes too kindly to a guy that goes around, say, killing a bunch of children?

red dead redemption 2, rdr2, rdr2 secrets, red dead redemption 2 secrets, red dead redemption 2 disturbing, red dead 2, red dead 2 secrets

Children are precious, and that’s why Rockstar thoughtfully placed a bunch of kids in the game. But nope, you can’t just use one of your weapons to lay the contents of their brain onto the pavement, because none of your weapons have any effect on them. This is similar to the approach most other video games that contain children take, such as BioShock, for instance. After all, the last thing Rockstar wants is bad PR. However, there is nothing stopping you from shoving kids around, throwing them around on the ground, running them over with your horse, pushing them on the train tracks, along with a couple of other delightful things that will tickle your inner sadist.

Let’s Go a Little Deeper

If you’re done with the kids, then it’s time to focus on the adults, because you’ve got options. It's no wonder RDR2 is a little bit on the fat side when it comes to file size because it's like every NPC has been given a separate personality. Your character seems to have something to say to each NPC, and each NPC has a different view of the world around them, so if you find someone whose view of the world doesn't fit yours, it's perfectly fine to tie them up and throw them into the sea so you can watch them drown. Shoot a sweet old lady in the head. Tie up an old man then drag him around behind your horse. Beat a deformed guy to death. The opportunities are simply endless!

Not the Puppy!

Finally, let’s come down to the worst thing that you could do in RDR2: killing animals. And I mean the domesticated kind, like dogs, and horses. There are no restrictions against you killing just about any animal you see, although it is suggested that you go for a mental health check if you tend to enjoy routinely shooting dogs in the head, or burning horses. 500 headshots to a bunch of NPCs’? Not a problem! But shoot a dog? Seriously?!

red dead redemption 2, rdr2, rdr2 secrets, red dead redemption 2 secrets, red dead redemption 2 disturbing, red dead 2, red dead 2 secrets

So, there you have it, a bunch of horrifying things you can see and do all around the dangerous world of Red Dead Redemption 2. Of course, this list can only capture a tiny fraction of the horrors and possibilities provided by the game, so I suppose I should leave it to you to expand it.

Cyberpunk 2077 Aiming For Red Dead Redemption 2 Quality

The developer behind the Witcher, CD Projekt Red, plans to make their next major RPG, Cyberpunk 2077, as detailed and refined as the recently released Red Dead Redemption 2. CD Projekt Red's CEO, Adam Kicinski, revealed during an investor call that the western themed shooter has taught the studio that they have to release amazing titles so that they can earn a "nice fat slice of cake." (https://bit.ly/2KwJzYU)

These comments were a response to an investor's question on what lessons CD Projekt Red took away from Red Dead Redemption 2 that will help them make Cyberpunk 2077 even better, and if the studio believes it can score as high critically as Rockstar's title.

CD Projekt Red Confident in Cyberpunk 2077

"Without a doubt, quality is of paramount importance," Kicinski said. "We strive to publish games which are as refined as Red Dead Redemption 2, and recent Rockstar releases in general. That game is excellent, by the way, we are rooting for it. Rave reviews, excellent sales. What does that teach us? Well, it teaches us that we need to publish extraordinary games, and that's exactly what we are planning." (https://bit.ly/2KwJzYU)

Kicinski has seen a trend in gaming today where people focus on more hit releases and ignore titles that don't necessarily capture their attention. Most people don't have much time to commit to games so CD Projekt Red is dedicated to making Cyberpunk 2077 the best it can be.

"Gamers, it seems, tend to focus more and more on hit releases. There's only so much time one can devote to video games, and while their gaming community is growing, time cannot be stretched," he said. "There is--well, maybe not a surfeit, but a fair deal of good games out there, and playing them consumes a lot of time." (https://bit.ly/2KwJzYU)

"So it pays to be among the best--that's how you get a nice fat slice of cake, businesswise, and the same cannot be said for the lower leagues. In summary, we are rooting for Rockstar and for Red Dead Redemption 2, and we're happy to see that excellent games continue to sell well." (https://bit.ly/2KwJzYU)

Cyberpunk 2077 on the Horizon

Another detail Kicinski revealed during the presentation is what stage of development Cyberpunk 2077 is in. As of now, the team is working on fleshing out the game world and working on making it even more detailed than the gameplay demo that was shown off during E3 2018. Development appears to be on schedule but there is still plenty more to be done before the game is ready for release.

"We are filling the world with content and tweaking things, and this involves a great deal of hard work on the part of developers," Kicinski said. "What I can say today is that we're progressing fast and according to plan. When we finish, there's also the hugely important phase of polishing all that game content. There was a question about the quality of the game we plan to deliver at launch and our intention is to deliver something of great quality. Once the game is complete, we can begin to patch various bugs, both major and minor, and we are setting aside time to complete this process." (https://bit.ly/2KwJzYU)

Cyberpunk 2077 gives players control of a mercenary named V who can be augmented with a variety of cybernetic augments that improve his/her skills or give the player more abilities. The game is set in the futuristic locale of Night City and plays in first-person as opposed to Witcher's third person perspective.  This title is sure to make the headlines when it releases so be sure to check back here at GigamaxGames.com for all the latest details.

Most Anticipated Video Games of 2018

Most Anticipated Video Games of 2018

The time is almost here when a new year brings in a host of new adventures to experience. In this list, we take a look at the most anticipated video games of 2018 and when they will be available to play. Unfortunately, not all these dates are set in stone but check back as time goes on for more information as it becomes available.

What games do you think should be added to the list? Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter and Facebook.

God of War (PS4) - “Early 2018”

Most Anticipated Video Games of 2018, god of war, new games, 2018 games, 2018 game releases, gigamax, gigamax games

With a groundbreaking series to live up to, this latest look into God of War seems to be the right step for the developers. Experiencing the world as an older and wiser Kratos, the trailers seemed to show a different side of this epic warrior. The world hasn’t had a new God of War since July 14th, 2015 and even that was just a remaster. Gamers are itching to get another chance to play as this powerful god. With no official release, gamers are keeping a close eye on any announcement surrounding this new release.

Days Gone (PS4) - “Early 2018”

Most Anticipated Video Games of 2018, days gone, new games, 2018 games, 2018 game releases, gigamax, gigamax games

Any fan of the survival horror genre will be excited to hear SIE Bend Studio is expected to release Days Gone this upcoming year. The release trailer showed off in 2017 (find it below) immediately left people asking what happened to this decimated world. The main character, a former biker outlaw seems to embrace the terrible situation he finds himself in, ready to shoot and slaughter anything that gets in his way. The impressive gameplay available as of now ranks Days Gone high on the most anticipated video games of 2018.

Anthem (PS4, Xbox One, PC) - Fall 2018

EA had a rough year in 2017. From a loot box controversy and the fallout that followed, it looks as though they want to make up for their blunder with the release of Anthem in 2018. Dubbed a shared-world action-RPG, the gameplay released is visually stunning. The world looks immense and dangers could lurk around every corner. Flying through the world in what resembles an Iron Man suit, players explore the impressive primeval landscape. The graphics and gameplay look absolutely exquisite but depending on how they handle the game post-launch will most likely determine its succus. 

Monster Hunter: World (PS4, Xbox One, PC) - January 26th

The Gigamax crew are all huge fans of the Monster Hunter franchise. From the very first time they picked up the PlayStation controller and slain their first monster, they were hooked. Bringing the Monster Hunter experience back to console and those as powerful as the ones we have today is a reason to celebrate. The Monster Hunter: World Beta left people on the edge of their seats just waiting for a chance to play the full game. This is surely set up to be unlike any Monster Hunter that has come before it.

Sea of Thieves (Xbox One, PC) - March 20th

Recently, Gigamax was invited to the Alpha test for Sea of Thieves. Unfortunately, the NDA blocks any gameplay from being shared but the concept is what got people excited.

Take to the high seas in this open-world adventure, completing quests and collecting booty. The progression system ensures everyone and anyone can experience this adventure together, no matter how long anyone has been playing, too.

People just didn’t want it to end and Naughty Dog ensured that the adventure didn't have to.
