“Will Red Dead Redemption track stats on the Social Club?” - received via Facebook
You can expect pretty much all Rockstar releases in the future to include Rockstar Games Social Club functionality. At this stage, Red Dead Redemption is of course still in development, but Rockstar Social Club support is in the cards. Look for Social Club to continue expanding as our convergence of multiplayer community, stat-tracking and exclusive community features.
"I'd like to know the whole story behind Donald Love. What was in the package? And why did he run away with the Asian guy? I always assumed it was human flesh or something, lol, because he's a necrophiliac and all." - 129514
No one is quite sure what happened to Donald Love. He certainly crossed a few boundaries and was trying to find a way back to normality. Whether or not he managed this, and what happened to the elderly Asian gentleman are matters we cannot speculate on.
