Best of CheatPlanet June/July 28th-2nd RDR multiplayer and Transformers emblems

Still a slow week for games, though next week’s Crackdown 2 should prove to be a solid way to whittle away those long summer days. We’ve got a huge map for the agility/mystery orbs planned in addition to a video guide to help you score all the game’s achievements. In the mean time, hunker down some more with Red Dead Redemption and Transformers.

Red Dead Redemption

If you’ve already beaten Red Dead Redemption you might have decided to check out the game’s multiplayer, which is a markedly more fun affair than GTAIV’s. User “Harro363” submitted a list of all the multiplayer mode’s unlockable weapons and mounts. Note that the “legendary” unlocks require you to level from 1-50 and start over again just like MW2’s prestige ranks. Spend enough time playing online though and you could be riding around on a zebra donkey shooting newbies with a buffalo rifle, which was actually a deleted scene from Blazing Saddles.

Transformers: War for Cybertron

You could go outside and get into adventures with your friends this summer, but there’s lots of bugs out there, it’s hot, and there’s a chance you could fall and skin your knee, or worse, tear your hilarious t-shirt with a pic of a Nintendo cart that says “Blow Me” on it. Why not stay inside with your good friends Optimus Prime and Starscream and use our Transformers: War for Cybertron emblems guide to snag all those little icons and get some gamerscore in the process.

And think about it, when you’re telling your grandkids about that magical summer you spent with Bumblebee blowing up evil robots from space, you’ll have 50 extra Gamerscore to back up your story so they don’t think you've gone totally senile.

    @ObliqueZombie youve got a point about the cover system, and the crouching was purley a mistake on my part, sorry about that.. But still, i was expecting to be able to have an all out no holds spar between an Autobot and Decepticon. Transformers warfare is more than just shooting at eachother.

    I lol'd at the two above me ^ @xXgodlypunkXx What'd you expect from a Transformers game? I'm glad there was no cover system, a me-too Gears of War doesn't sound fun (Gears should be Gears, nothing more). Instead, we got a double jump ability... tell that to games with cover systems. Oh, and there was no crouch button. I'm questioning if you've played WFC or not.

    I really wanted to like the new Transformers game, but it had so many missning pices. No cover system, only crouch button. And only 1 quick melee attack? Meh.

    This is very off topic, but I just wanted to get this posted some where... Why haven't you guys reviewed Singularity yet? I just bought the game yesterday, and hot damn, I was blown away! Mulitplayer, not so much, but the single player was fantastic, to say the least. Besides, isn't it your job to review new games? Especially new games that rock?

    i get the feeling that "blow me" shirt is becoming a running gag.

    Awesome multiplayer for RDR, love that game!
