Kotaku Matchmaker: Red Dead Redemption

Aussie online gamers know that any online game is best enjoyed with, well... other Aussies. To ensure your weekend online gaming is as lag-free as possible, every Friday we'll be hosting the Kotaku Matchmaker, where you can meet new friends online!

We'll be theming each Matchmaker around a specific game. We kicked it off last week with Halo: Reach. This time we're matchmaking on two consoles, thanks to Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption - out today on both Xbox 360 and PS3.

So, all you need to do is leave your Xbox Live gamertag and/or PSN ID in the comments below. Mention a bit about yourself, too: What game modes do you prefer? When do you usually play? Anything that'll help other players decide if you're really a good match.

    Looking forward to some good matches :)

    Grabbing Red Dead Redemption today, will give it a go over the weekend. Otherwise I don't play my 360 too much, mostly just single-player.

    Xbox Live: f4cti0n

    Aaaand Steam. Basically just playing Team Fortress 2, MP wise. Medic, Pyro and Soldier are my classes of choice.

    I've just picked up Modnation Racers as wel as Red Dead, so add me if you are playing either.


      I got both on the same day too! Luckily, though, I got RDR on 360, so I can play a couple a couple of multiplayer games while Mod Nation Racers struggles to load a single race >_>/

        Mod Nation is slow at loading but not as slow as everyone makes it out to be... It's not like I can go to sleep and wake up 8 hours later and, "Ohh yes my race is starting!" Its like 45 seconds in a multiplayer game, big deal. People don't understand you have to be patient to receive the good stuff... Its a highly complicated game with great landscapes and tracks which offer variance in every race.

    Ps1napse is my Gamertag.

    I got RDR last night (thanks jb ;)) and i've only just touched multiplayer. Any game modes are fine with me.

    Feel free to add me on Xbox Live if you want to have a game, I should be around tonight!

    PS3 version
    psn id wonderboy1337
    havent seen anyone online yet started yesterday for RDR. I want mexican standoffs now

    PSN ID is loinbread (PS3 version, feels bad man).

    I don't have RDR :/

    XBL: Hinezy86

    I would offer my PSN nick here, but given that I've only played the game last night, I think I'll sink my teeth into single player and uncover afew things on my own first...

    360 GT: budgieishere

    As for game modes, I haven't really looked at what there is to offer yet. I'll be mostly playing single player, but I would like to join up in a posse and go assault some bandit hideouts.

    Yey, first one of these for a game I actualy have, though unfortunatly i'm wroking this weekend. When i get home i'll confirm my game tag (x360). I think it's ForzenPhoenixx but i'm not sure if there is a space or a _ there. I do shift work so i tend to be online at strage hours such as during weekdays or late nights.

      Ok, just confirmed my 360 gametag is Frozen Phoenixx. Feel free to add me, I do shift work so i tend to be on at all sorts of odd hours. I won't get a chance to play much until monday as I'll be working this weekend.

    360 Gamertag:


    Based in Brisbane, would love to play some nba 2k10 with anyone as well.

    Psn ID: Bjergi

    Just got red dead. Never got into the multiplayer on GTA:IV, but that's probably because it sucked, haha. I'm hoping this is a little more exciting!


    radioheadhead.. I'm all about nba 2k10... my tag is Toilet Children.. I'll hit you up

    psn: Gemini_Wraith

    alas, mine won't arrive until Monday. :(

      same here... T_T, if only they delivered the post on saturdays.....

      Did you order from ebgames.com.au too? First and last time I ever order from that, they assured me in two separate emails that it would arrive on the release date.

      Dodgy bastards!

        I buy all my console games (new only) off of ebay from international sellers. They even do pre-orders! The only problem is you have to wait two-three weeks before you get your game and in the case of RDR, the wait is super-painful. The most annoying thing is when they take a week to walk their lazy-asses over to the Post Office/ cargo ship/ whatever and post the game.

    Xbox GT: Drajkhan

    just got red dead and i reckon as i'll be spending ALOT of time on the open plains...look me up

    I'd leave my Gamertag, but I'll probably be playing single player :P
    Or Alan Wake.

    360 Gamertag is sykoticus
    Picking it up today after work and will be online at some stage over the weekend but single player all the way tonight

    Won't have RDR on PS3 but my ID is driftking600

    Will be grabbing this, this weekend as well.

    Gamertag (xbox) is factor05

    Also, am eager to hook up with anyone who has Splinter Cell Conviction for a bit of co-op?

    We run Australia's largest independant gaming site at nextgg.com
    Quite a lot of our members have picked up RDR like me so come and join in the fun ;)

    Just got RDR today, starting up some of the single player. My GT is I706I and I imagine I'll mostly be opting for the free-roam style gametype. I didn't really get this game for its competitive multiplayer, more for its interesting single player and if I can use free-roam to play some form of co-op that would be pretty cool. Not that I mind the idea of attacking some other posse's with my own.

    playing a lot of red dead redemption online and loving it. i play on nights and on the weekend so add me ps3.
