Rockstar has announced that they're throwing their support behind Movember, the annual, month-long charity event asking men to grow moustaches.
The Movember Foundation - now in its 10th year - is a wonderful charity that helps promote awareness and provide aid and funding for numerous men's health issues, including prostate cancer and depression. The name itself is a portmanteau of "moustache" and "November," and by pure coincidence involves mainly the growth of moustaches throughout the month of November. For more information, check the official website http://www.movember.com/
Now enough of that boring charity, helping-one-another, being-nice crap! How this really
affects us gamers involves Rockstar's upcoming 'Red Dead Redemption': "Grow a rugged moustache and send us a photo by the end of Movember for an opportunity to be immortalized as a character in Rockstar Games' next epic action-adventure, Red Dead Redemption"
Reckon you could be the rugged hombre with the best mo'? Then get yourself signed up on the site, get sponsored, and get growing those 'staches! Likewise, if any of you ladies want to get involved and are particularly hairy... uh... actually, please keep shaving.
Red Dead Redemption is currently scheduled for release in the first half of 2010, so keep your eyes peeled on TA for more information about the game.
