It's Sequential Saturday and that means it's time for another dose of Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare... or is it?
So there it was... Saturday. Time for another episode of Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare with Jason and Jeff. Let me just open up my browser and see if it's been posted yet. Episode 7 was so awesome that I just can't wait for... wait a minute. Episode 9? What the fuck? Did I hit my head and travel into the future? Do Jeff and Jason hate even numbered episodes now? WHAT THE SHITMUFFINS IS GOING ON HERE?! MY LIFE IS A LIEEEEE!!!
At least that's how I like to think it went down. Hey everyone. Jeff here and it's time for a Rage Select experiment of epic proportions. However, before we get into it, let's start with a bit of backstory, shall we? Jason and I record videos every week and 99% of the time everything is hunky dory... I remember to hit the record button and everything. Unfortunately, from time to time we do lose some audio and/or video. Now, mostly this isn't an issue because we can just re-record, drink heavily, and everything is right in the world. However, I didn't realize that Episode 8 of RDR:UN was completely horked until long after we had turned off the console, packed everything up, and buried the bodies. That, coupled with the STAGGERINGLY FRUSTRATING fact that you can't replay missions in Undead Nightmare means that we were left with very little in the way of choices.
So we recorded Part 9 and went on about our daily lives. But then... a brainstorm! We still have the audio commentary from Episode 8, just not any video to back it up. Why not release the raw audio file to you dear listeners? At first we thought ya'll just might want to listen to us yap for a bit even if there wasn't video, but then I had another brainwave and stick with me, because this is where shit gets weird...
What if you guys re-created Episode 8?
Now I realize that ya'll can't see what we were seeing and without the visuals this is a convoluted mess that makes very little sense, but we all know that when life gives you lemons, you make hand grenades! So here's what I'm thinking: if any of you fine folks are interested, divide up the audio and use whatever you have at your disposal to re-create what YOU think is happening on screen. That could be animation, live action, sweding, puppets, storyboards, still images, you name it! As long as it seems like we're talking about what you're doing, that's cool with us. I'm going to open up a forum thread here for ya'll to organize in, so download the audio and do whatever you want with it!
But wait, it gets even better! If we get enough footage to re-create the entire episode, I'll render it out and we'll put it up online with all of your names in the end credits! Help us complete the saga of Undead Nightmare and get rich and famous in the process! So here's the audio:
The rest is up to you! Make Gary and Greedo proud!
