While the first chapter of Life in the West merely touched on some of the dangers of frontier life in the world of Red Dead Redemption, Life in the West: Part II contains some more depth and detail on the atmosphere of revolutionary turmoil and social unrest that was prevalent during the time period, with gangs overrunning decrepit towns and roadside bandits a constant threat.

This entry in the Gameplay Series also sheds some more light on a few of the unique gameplay mechanics, including the mechanics of dueling and how the deeds you perform and the way dress impact how people of the world react to you.

Check out this wild machine that makes cocktails called a Falling Water. Some dude named Joseph Herscher made it in the garage of his flat. To much time on his hands? Or just a straight up legend. You be the judge.

For those who don’t have access to such a machine as this, here is the recipe for the drink:

– 30mls (1Oz) 42BELOW Feijoa Vodka
– Ch’i or Lemonade
– Long slice of seedless cucumber
– Ice

Cut a long thin piece of cucumber on a diagonal. Rest it against the inside of a Highball glass. Fill the glass with ice, add 42BELOW Feijoa. Top with Ch’i or Lemonade. Booyah, your officially cooking with gas vodka.

Tila Tequila’s relentless pursuit to take camera whoring to new levels has landed her inside a grocery store wearing lingerie. First of all, how is this legal, and secondly, $3.99 for pork baby back ribs, I’ll take 3 good sir!

Anywho, when members of the paparazzi stopped caring about her, Tila purposely dropped store items on the floor so that she could pick them up, porn star style. I hate that I love this I really do.

Yes there’s more you randy devil you ;)
