Games people should have played: Part 1: Lead and Gold - Gangs of the Wild West

Every so often, a moment of great serendipity occurs and someone (in this case myself) will be exposed to something (in this case Lead and Gold) that they wouldn't have otherwise witnessed. This cataclysmic event often culminates in the form of half baked articles on partially successful Internet blogs, and today you are reading just such a blog. For more hilarious screenshot based fun, look no further

About a year ago, I was on a massive cowboy binge in the most heterosexual way possible. I believe it was caused by playing Call of Juarez, which consequently made me play the 2nd Call of Juarez game, followed by a whole slew of shitty cowboy flash games, and a massive urge to buy Red Dead Redemption (ultimately resisted due to the lack of console at the time). As such, when a steam daily deal flashed up with a cowboy game, you can bet mouse buttons were clicked fast, and thus I came into the ownership of Lead and Gold - Gangs of the Wild West. A game made by the team behind War of the Roses, the soon to be realised historical multiplayer team game, and part of the season why I've chosen now to do this... postmortem.
