'Red Dead Redemption' Multiplayer Guide To Unlocks: Weapons, Mounts And Characters

27 May 2010 8:56 AM, PDT | MTV Multiplayer | See recent MTV Multiplayer news »

"Red Dead Redemption" doesn't just have a strong single-player component. The multiplayer easily bests any of Rockstar's previous multiplayer efforts, allowing players to ride the plains and complete missions with their own posse of friends.

When you hop into multiplayer for the first time, you'll notice that you're not playing as John Marston. Instead you'll be given a random base character taken from a handful of different groups. Oh, and that awesome horse you had in single-player? Yeah, replaced by a mule. Completing missions and scoring kills in multiplayer will grant experience which will allow you to rank up and unlock new playable characters, weapons and mounts. There are 50 ranks, as well as a Prestige-style "Legendary" mode which allows players to revert back to Rank 1 once they hit 50, but with the added benefit of fancy new unlockables.

Fess Parker obituary

19 March 2010 9:15 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Rugged Texan actor best known for his roles as Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone

The actor Fess Parker, who has died aged 85, was a quintessential westerner, a tall, rugged, Texas-born athlete turned actor, famous for his portrayals of two frontiersmen, Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone, as well as sheriffs, cowboys and ranchers. He greatly appreciated the commercial rewards of these two title roles, and went on to become a successful businessman.

The Walt Disney studio was the first in Hollywood to move wholeheartedly into television, and had the bright idea of combining three episodes of the Davy Crockett series Parker had made for them in 1954 into a feature. The result, Davy Crockett: King of the Wild Frontier (1955), spawned the craze for coonskin hats and became a box-office hit on the back of its singalong theme. Bill Hayes's recording of The Ballad of Davy Crockett topped the charts for three months, »
