Grand Theft Auto V isn’t due out until September, you can bet that new information will keep flowing in on a regular basis to keep you somewhat satisfied – though we all know it’s never going to be enough until the game is in our hand. But, nothing we can do about that so what we can do is bring you some of the new details.
Just yesterday Rockstar released three new trailer (which are combined together in our news story, you can find here) showing off a little backstory to each of the three playable characters. It appears that this new iteration of GTA will incorporate several RPG elements by looking at the list after the jump. Each of the three characters will have skills and all three of the protagonists will be better in some skills than the other two as well. I think my favorite thing about the new details is that the underwater areas are now a living breathing ecosystem that you can explore and even find treasure in….

Rockstar Games put up a small announcement on their website this morning to share with their fans that upcoming game Grand Theft Auto V, which is their hugely anticipated title, will not be released in the spring as they had originally announced. The game will be pushed back four months and will not hit store shelves on September 17th, 2013.
“We know this is about four months later than originally planned and we know that this short delay will come as a disappointment to many of you,” the letter wrote. “GTAV is a massively ambitious and complex game and it simply needs a little more polish to be of the standard we and, more importantly, you require.” (more…)Posted in: Microsoft, News Tags: Grand Theft Auto V, GTA V, Playstation 3, PS3, Rockstar Games, Xbox 360
Editor’s note: Staff at Broken Joysticks will be sharing their top five games, or game related stories, from 2012 throughout the week. We’re starting the feature with the top five from our contributing reviewer, Jason Fayta.
It’s hard to believe 2012 is over, and it’s equally hard to believe we’re already two weeks into 2013. Overall, I found 2012 to be a solid year for releases, but I can’t say there was a title I was completely enamored with, which lead to some difficulty in rounding out my top five releases from the year. However, as I went through my playing history, certain games began to stand out as titles I found most compelling, regardless of their flaws. So, without further ado, the top five…Posted in: Site News Tags: 2012, Capcom, Dragon's Dogma, Far Cry 3, Max Payne 3, Namco Bandai, PlayStation Plus, PlayStation Vita, Remedy Entertainment, Rockstar Games, Soulcalibur V, ubisoft
Grand Theft Auto V has been on our most wanted list for the last few months, ever since RockStar Games dropped the brand new trailer and plot details we’ve wanted to know when we would have it in our hands.
According to a recently updated Amazon page the game could be released on March 26th.The listing was originally spotted by the folks over at Collider. It is important to note that until Rockstar announces an official date for GTAV this should be considered rumor. I wouldn’t book off an end of March holiday just yet.

Let’s talk a bit about a little video game franchise you guys may have heard about.
For those that might not know, my love for all things Grand Theft Auto runs quite deep. I helped to start GTA Hood, the IGN Grand Theft Auto portal site, and worked there from the beginning until IGN decided to shut all portal sites down earlier this year. I’ve had the chance to visit Rockstar Games on three different occasions as a result of working with the site, to preview their upcoming games (EfLC expansion/Red Dead Redemption, L. A. Noire and Max Payne 3), and at these fansite events I had a chance to meet and interface with other major players in the Rockstar/GTA fansite world. When IGN did decide to close the doors of GTA Hood, I knew I wanted to reach out to one of the other fansite owners and see if I could join their ranks. Long story short, I ended up landing at GTANet, home to GTA game-specific sites and also the owner of GTAForums, the largest GTA forum on the interwebs.
So why am I telling you this? Why should you care? (more…)Posted in: Microsoft, Sony Tags: Grand Theft Auto, Grand Theft Auto 5, Grand Theft Auto V, GTA, GTA5, GTAV, Rockstar Games, Take Two Interactive

Maybe I’m just getting old but it is hard to believe that Grand Theft Auto: Vice City launched a decade ago today. Premiering just one year after the groundbreaking Grand Theft Auto III, Vice City transported us back two decades, to 1980s Miami. In celebration the game will be available on mobile platforms including Apple’s IOS!
I remember being so excited for the game back in high school. It was the one game that all of my friends were talking about at the time. Our excitement reached fever pitch when we set up a projector with a 20 FT screen and played in to the wee hours of the morning, committing unspeakable crimes! What is your fondest memory of the GTA Series? Love it or hate it, it has been a part of the gaming zeitgeist for almost two decades now!Posted in: Mobile, News Tags: Mobile, Rockstar Games, Vice City
So by now hopefully you’ve seen the amazing Trailer 2 for GTA V. Here is a run-down of my analysis of it, some predictions based on what I’ve seen, and any differences between this one and the official announcement trailer shown earlier this year.
The trailer opens with shots of the opulent neighborhood that Michael, one of the series’ three protagonists, lives in – and from there it’s simply a whirlwind of clips and shots, giving you an idea of just what kind of a ride you’re in for. Here are some bulleted observations: (more…)Posted in: Microsoft, Sony Tags: Grand Theft Auto 5, Grand Theft Auto V, GTA 5, GTA V, Rockstar Games
