We Review: Red Dead Redemption – Undead Nightmare

For as long as I can remember, the ideology behind cowboys and the Wild West has enthralled me. So too has the phenomenon known as the undead. Imagine then how surprised I was when Rockstar Game Studios announced the culmination of two of the greatest (and most successful) storytelling experiences. Red Dead Redemption on its own was a blockbuster of epic proportions, and even I didn’t expect it to do as well as it did. Now imagine throwing zombies and other supernatural creatures into the mix. You wouldn’t be wrong if you assumed that it would lead to an even greater gaming experience. Let us embark upon a journey. A journey of awe and wonder. A journey of shock and horror. A journey of the undead. [Please note: If you haven’t finished Red Dead Redemption, you may encounter spoilers in this review.]

Play This: Not Tetris

We’ve seen all manner of Tetris mods from xkcd’s Tetris Hell to an FPS clone to a suitably mean-spirited version.  And we never get tired of playing them. Tetris fan Maurice from Cologne, Germany has created a mod of the popular puzzle game that keeps the nostalgic graphics and sounds but introduces real-world physics. Unlike the original game, in Not Tetris the completed lines don’t get cleared and your end goal is to stack as many pieces onto top of each other as you can.

Seems easy right? Download Not Tetris (3.5 MB, PC-only I’m afraid) and let us know how you fared.
