Them thar gun-slanngers

Yeah! That's the guy!
Maybe a little confusing by the subject line but I doubt anyone will read this anyways. Riding around the newly-unlocked Great Plains in Red Dead Redemption I stopped by a remote campsite to listen to a random guy tell a tale of the west. Lo and behold he mentioned a name or two that immediately sounded familiar including Red Harlow, the very same Red from, you guessed it, Red Dead Revolver. The story was something about the craziest gunslingers he ever did see and I know he said one more fellar by name as well as a location from Revolver but I was so abuzz at the mention of Red's name that I forgot the rest. Very nice little, easy-to-miss reference. Surely it's not the only one in the game but it's the only one that struck me so far. And here I was thinking John Marston's son was going to be Red somehow, but his name's Jack... and Redemption is set waaaay later than Revolver.
