Pure PlayStation Plays: Week 129 – The Red Dead Weekend

Well howdy there, friend. So you done come ’round these parts lookin’ for clever words? Ya won’t find any of them kind ’round here, I tell ya. We’re simple folk at Pure PlayStation and we’re proud of it. We work the land the whole week long and we enjoy the simple pleasures in life, like sitting on the porch with some whiskey and a shotgun.

In case you hadn’t already figured it out, Pure PlayStation has been infected with Red Dead fever as most of us have been skipping sleep, meals, and sex to keep playing Rockstar’s latest epic. It’s the game’s first weekend and so we’re dedicating this week’s Pure PlayStation Plays to Red Dead Redemption 2. Here’s what the posse is doing this weekend:

Chris Harding

I’m fully enjoying Red Dead Redemption 2. I’ve slept maybe two hours since it released, and I’ve worked a 10-hour shift in my store, yet I’m still awake and probably will be for the next couple of days. Or until I crash and die on my couch.

I’ll need a break from Arthur, Dutch, and the rest of Red Dead Redemption 2’s colourful cast, so I’ll take my Dead Eye skills online in Firewall Zero Hour on PSVR. Jeremy and myself are becoming quite the lethal killers. Honestly. We even won a game the other night.

Jason Frye

No games for me until later this weekend. I look forward to hearing about the exciting cowboy adventures in Red Dead Redemption 2 from everyone here, until I can spend forever installing and playing it myself.

Jeremy Peterson

In an effort to prove to everyone that I don’t wear my beloved PSVR headset at all times, I’ll be galloping across the old west with everyone else, trying to keep Arthur alive long enough to get the girl and hopefully achieving some red dead redemption, too.

But a big, juicy update just came out for Firewall Zero Hour, so you know damn well I gotta check that out. There are only so many hours in a weekend, so I plan on avoiding and pushing back as many responsibilities as I can.

Stuart McLean

As is pretty much the case with everyone here in PurePlaystation Towers I’ll be saddling up my horse and hitting the Wild West in Red Dead Redemption 2, having already stayed up far later than any sensible adult should have done playing it.

Max Taylor

Although life will be getting in the way more than I’d like, I will of course be playing Red Dead Redemption 2. This is the last game I plan on purchasing until the new year so I’m going to take it slow and savour the experience throughout the wintery months to come.

Hannah Ellis

I will be bucking the trend and enjoying a cowboy-free weekend. Instead of riding side-saddle, I will be duking it out in The Binding of Isaac’s unsettling world, inevitably dying at the hand of its Poop Boss.

Kyle didn’t get his submission in on time as he’s spending his free evenings and weekends cleaning his neighbours cars and mowing their lawns. Why? He’s saving up to buy an Xbox One X. 

Comments

Chris has been writing about gaming news for far too long, and now he’s doing it even more. A true PlayStation know-it-all, Chris has owned just about every Sony console that ever existed. Trophies are like crack to this fella.
