Red Dead Redemption 2 Videos Deleted and Restored by YouTube

YouTube deletes and then restores back Red Dead Redemption 2 controversial videos of killing feminist NPC.

Developer/publisher Rockstar Games didn't launch Western-themed action-adventure game Red Dead Redemption 2 with intent of just riding horses and camping in the woods but it also involves a lot of rooting tooting cowboy shooting.

Since the in-game lead character Arthur Morgan is an outlaw, you expect him being involved in some activities during the gameplay that may not be pleasant but that is okay. However, it seems that YouTube wasn't so sure about it before it became a matter of concern.

Recently, YouTube took down a gaming channel known as Shirrako Gaming of 500,000  subscribers base for a gameplay video they uploaded earlier, claiming the content have broke their community guidelines by showing the player attacking a feminist NPC (Non-Player Character).

Titled "Annoying Feminist Fed To Alligator", the video depicts Arthur attacks a female suffragette before saddling her up on his horse and then feeding her to an alligator to take a chomp at her. He then stomped her with boots for a while afterwards.

Now such display of violence against suffragette woman NPC in RDR2 are often labeled online as attacks against feminists and these videos are quickly becoming very popular to a certain part of gaming community these days.

YouTube apparently couldn't tell real footage of violence from the ones taken from popular video game and took them down for breach of guidelines but these contents are only prohibited if they come under fire, which t didn't.

Shirrako Gaming promptly took Twitter to address the takedown of his channel by the video-sharing website for promoting violence by killing a female NPC.

Immediately after the ban, a massive fan-outcry followed over the deletion move by the site and upon realizing their mistake, the action is reviewed again and the channel was eventually restored the following day with all videos.

Seeing the matter going out of hands, the company's wider gaming team handled the situation and YouTube's head of gaming, Ryan Wyatt confirmed that they will educate the reviewers from repeating such mistakes in future to avoid such inconvenience.

Here is the video in question that created the so called feminist controversy on YouTube regarding the game.

Now that the air is clear once again, people are hitting search for Red Dead Redemption 2 videos where women's rights activists are getting punched in the face, run over by trains or even thrown into mine shafts in the Wild West.

However, these controversial video clips are now restricted only to audience above 18 years of age and that clearly makes sense. Hopefully, the misogynistic attitude towards outspoken feminists within a game is not going to be the subject of their concern anymore.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Hits 17 Million Sales

Rockstar Games has shipped more copies of Red Dead Redemption 2 within a week than the original did in eight years.

The most anticipated video game of 2018, Red Dead Redemption 2 from developer/publisher Rockstar Games was launched on October 26 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to meet with immense success that even surpassed Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

Recently, an official financial report from Rockstar's parent company Take-Two Interactive has revealed that so far they have shipped over a whooping 17 million copies of their critically acclaimed Western-themed action-adventure game.

However, this sell-in figure means that there are numbers included for physical copies that are already shipped to retailers but yet not obtained by customers. No matter which way you want to look at it, that is an extremely impressive number in just 12 days after launch.

This narrative open-world game debuted with the biggest opening weekend by earning over $725 million in just three days and then outsold the eight years of overall sales of original Red Dead Redemption in just eight days.

Even Take-Two and Rockstar Games have admitted that Red Dead Redemption 2 has exceeded their expectation by crossing such landmark in so little time. Previously, only Grand Theft Auto V was able to pull such feat and ended up earning over $6 billion till date.

This insane level of success also comes with a much appreciated critical acclaim for RDR2, which has undoubtedly raised the bar for other games in general these days. Although there are reports of a few bugs but Rockstar is working to provide a fix soon.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App Hints PC Version

Fans have been digging up evidence for Red Dead Redemption 2 PC version and got hint from the game's mobile app.

From the very moment of announcement to this date as the game is launched already, people have been still asking whether or not PC version of Western-themed action-adventure game Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming from developer/publisher Rockstar Games.

Enthusiast fans even dug up a leaked listing for the game on PC and LinkedIn profile of a Rockstar employee which suggests his involvement with the version. However, the new source of hints came from the game's mobile app launched earlier.

Newly surfaced codes from RDR2 companion app suggests that this open world adventure could make its way to PC, if not soon then later. The series of codes also indicates to the possible introduction of virtual reality within the game as well.

Despite the presence of code parameters that clearly points out PC references and frame limit, some are pointing this out as a possibility for a future desktop app for the game. Then again, that doesn't really explain the mentions of Oculus Rift.

RDR2 is already is the most-anticipated game of the year that is taking over by keeping players busy on their PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. Many experts are even speculating that the game might end up selling 20 million units by the end of this year.

Even though, Rockstar didn't launch the first game, Red Dead Redemption on PC after eight years of its initial release or the Red Dead Revolver from 2004, they might want to reconsider this time and cash in on the trending hype of the game.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Launch Trailer

Besides, the company does have a history of making surprise PC releases as they did with Grand Theft Auto V, denying all possibly and reports of PC port but ended up releasing one eventually after two years of the original release.

However, taking into account that the Red Dead series may remain as a console-exclusive since neither Red Dead Revolver nor Red Dead Redemption has made it to the platform, long after exceeding the time GTA5 took but we never know that for sure.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Weaponry Details

Rockstar Games never gone on record by officially stating that there won't be a Red Dead Redemption 2 PC version ever and therefore leaving possibilities for us. They might as well break the trend and release the game for high-end PC with impressive graphics.

Somewhere down the line, players may really get their wish fulfilled by them but till then, be thankful that this masterpiece of a game came out after all these years and keep enjoying it on consoles or on YouTube (if you don't own a console).

Will Red Dead Redemption 2 Be on PC?

Those who aren't playing the game on PS4 and Xbox One this week are wondering if Red Dead Redemption 2 going to be released on PC?

As soon as developer/publisher Rockstar Games released their most anticipated Western-themed action-adventure game Red Dead Redemption 2 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this Friday, people are taking sick leaves and ditching plans to spend time with it.

Those who aren't, are busy wondering if the biggest game of 2018 is ever going to be released on PC? This has been the most asked question about RDR2 so far and we couldn't help ourselves but wonder if there is any possibility of that?

Will Red Dead Redemption 2 Be on PC?

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Launch Trailer

For now, the answer would be, no. However, we cannot just brush off any possibilities for that to happen without getting any official statement from Rockstar yet. Pleading from players for a PC version of their game is nothing new and not like something the world didn't saw before.

When Red Dead Redemption came out in 2010 as the previous installment of the series (but the story of RDR2 takes place earlier), outcries from fans for a PC version of the game was heard but the studio didn't do anything in over eight years.

Besides, playing these games on PC has their own perks and one of the biggest one of them are the usage of mods. The company stated that making a PC compatible version was never part of their plan but they can consider it in the future when it will be technically and business-wise viable for them.

Rumors were heard about PC release earlier but other than a leaked retail listings and a LinkedIn resume, we have nothing. It seems that Rockstar Games is still unfazed by the craze for a PC version of their game but that doesn't necessarily mean that they won't ever do that.

RELATED: Buy Red Dead Redemption 2 on Xbox One and Save $100

In past, the studio released their greatest hit game Grand Theft Auto V in 2013, solely for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. A year after, it came out for PS4 and Xbox One before the PC port was finally released six months later.

In case of their neo-noir detective action-adventure title L.A. Noire, Rockstar prioritized the console versions as well. Nevertheless, the comparison between the delays of GTA5 for PC release against an eight year of reluctance is obviously ridiculous.


RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Weaponry Details

The developers definitely put their best efforts on the game as the visuals look chiseled and absolutely stunning on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X consoles. Aside from next level graphics, RDR2 performs even better on these platforms than their standard versions.

This is another reason for that entire PC outcry because the graphical superiority of the platform and the smooth gameplay of 60 FPS, which even has its own line of jokes and memes. Bottom line is, unless Rockstar Games officially announces Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC, fans can do nothing but hope for it.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App for Mobile

Red Dead Redemption 2 is almost upon us and developer Rockstar Games announced a companion app for the game.

We are only a few days away from the endgame now where developer/publisher Rockstar Games releases their most anticipated title of the year, Red Dead Redemption 2 and it completely takes over our lives as we become outlaw Arthur Morgan.

While this Western-themed action-adventure takes us to the Wild West, the developers were thoughtful enough to come up with a companion app for the game on Android and iOS devices to provide real-time interactive information to players.

Two weeks before release, Rockstar Games revealed details on the available arsenal of weapons from Red Dead Redemption 2.

Up until this point, we saw a few trailers, gameplay reveal, early access contents and learned a lot of details about upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2 from developer/publisher Rockstar Games, which is one of the most anticipated titles of this year.

A large part of the gameplay involves a lot of shooting and a Western-themed action-adventure game is meaningless without gunfire. To effectively engage in gunfights, Rockstar has unveiled the huge weaponry of the game to offer players a wide array of variants to choose from.

Apparently, there are 50 different weapons you can pick within the game with some of them has customization options according to their official site. To complement accuracy, damage and range, several types of ammunition are available in-game.

In par with realism, if you do not tend to your guns properly and regularly, they will degrade slowly. However, you can keep it in good working condition with oiling and cleaning. Also, the more you use them, the better you get with them in terms of performance.

Weapon customization using constructive upgrade parts like new barrels, grips, scopes and sights practically make them better while you can match that by adding add engravings, metals, varnishes and woods to provide a more aesthetic look.

Noteworthy mentions of weapons are bolt-action rifle, carbine repeater, cattleman revolver, double-action revolver, pump-action shotgun, sawed-off shotgun, sniper rifle, Springfield rifle and varmint rifle. Aside from their unique types, variety of ammo can significantly alter the effect of a shot on a target.

Depending on your situation at hand, some weapons can particularly come in handy than the others. For example, when you are riding a horse, the double-action revolver will be a good shot. In a close range combat sawed-off shotgun is the best choice for firepower.

When hunting a small game, varmint rifle is what you need for not causing much damage to the meat and skin of your prey. In general, all types of rifle can be fitted with scopes to leave it up to player's choice whether they want regular or scoped aiming.

Starting from launch, Rockstar Games will let player enjoy Red Dead Redemption 2 in first-person mode.

Although upcoming Western-themed action-adventure game Red Dead Redemption 2 from developer/publisher Rockstar Games is originally conceived to play from a third-person perspective, an additional first-person mode has been added.

For example, when you play as Arthur Morgan in first-person, try to bond with your steed because it is super important for your gameplay, let that be riding your horse or just simply taking care of it.

Engaging someone in combat will be felt more confronting and engaging, riding a horseback will never be the same. Developers have prior knowledge of the mode from their experimenting with Grand Theft Auto V in the past, which was launched in 2013 without the mode being added.

Another experience Rockstar is implementing on the game from GTA V is the multiplayer component the intended for RDR2 as Red Dead Online, which goes live in public beta from November 2018.

Red Dead Online Announced

Rockstar Games announced Red Dead Online, an open world multiplayer experience for upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2.

When Rockstar Games released Red Dead Redemption for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles back in 2010, it had its own online multiplayer, where players could try out a several different modes in the open world of the game with friends.

Today, they have announced the vast multiplayer component for their upcoming Western-themed action-adventure game Red Dead Redemption 2, which will initially launch in November 2018 as a public beta with more features to explore.

The cooperative play, Red Dead Online will not come out at the same time with RDR2 which is releasing on October 26, 2018 to avoid issues. When GTA Online was initiated, it delivered players a few frustrating weeks of gaming experience and Rockstar have learned valuable lessons from their past mistakes.

Another reason would be to deliver a standalone, unique feel of its own. Anyone who would own a copy of RDR2 will be able to access RDO public beta a month later on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Gameplay Reveal

Both Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online will use the same gameplay mechanics yet deliver a completely separate sense of playing. Though already pretty massive, the main game will offer a single-player journey that is mostly stationary.

On the other hand, players will get new content updates and fixes to keep things interesting in the long run. Because of these alterations, there could be problems during the launch and Rockstar Games is staying steer clear of that.

RDR2 is actually a prequel and happens to be biggest release of the company since they launched Grand Theft Auto V in 2013. So, they will follow up a month after with RDO and the beta will point out which areas they need to focus their efforts on.

Players will probably get to enjoy some real competitive modes like Grand Theft Auto Online regularly offers though their steady stream of updates. Since possibilities are near limitless in online multiplayer, it will surely be fun to watch.
