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.

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.
