Grand Theft Auto V Hijacks PS4 & Xbox One On Nov 18th

Posted on September 13, 2014 by Rae Michelle Richards

Remember when RockStar Games announced that Grand Theft Auto V would be coming to current generation consoles like the PlayStation 4 sometime soon? The studio revealed this week that the latest GTA will be making its way on to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on November 18th 2014 and will be available on Windows PC on January 27th 2015!

Will there be better graphics? Most definitely, but that is not the only improvement that RockStar is working on for GTA’s 8th generation debut. Multiplayer matches will now feature up to 30 players on PS4 & Xbox One,  they’ve also added new vehicles, new weapons, new activities and enhanced damage / weather systems.

Did you take a trip to Los Santos when GTA V was released last September? If you didn’t, then the current-gen version sounds like the best way to experience the latest GTA. Check out several screenshots of GTA V for Xbox One / PS4 after the jump. We’ve also got the full press-release from RockStar games!

New GTA V Details Confirmed

Posted on May 2, 2013 by Joshua Rust

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….Read More

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City removed from Steam

Posted on November 15, 2012 by Broken Joysticks

For those of you  that have not yet purchased Grand Theft Auto: Vice City off of Steam, there is now an unfortunate happenstance that’s likely to prevent you from playing the role of Tommy Vercetti for an undetermined amount of time. The reported block came from none other than Sony Music Entertainment, who cited licensing misuse on Michael Jackson’s ‘Wanna Be Startin’ Something’ found on the Vice City Fever 105 station. Rockstar has claimed that they are currently in the process of making the game available once again on Steam, as soon as this problem is fixed.

Fortunately, if you have already purchased and downloaded Vice City to begin with, you can still re-download and install it at any time, this removal only prevents any future buyers of the game at this point. Needless to say, it is an utter disappointment for the RIAA to once again step up and ruin not only music licensing in video games, but digital distribution as well.

Max Payne 3 Gets Noir Filter, Modifiers, New Map in Free DLC Next Week

Posted on August 21, 2012 by Jeff Wade

More DLC for Max Payne 3 is rolling out, like a bad habit that you can’t quit and that won’t cost any of the equally flawed pennies that keep showing up.

There’s no price better than free for the Disorganized Crime DLC pack, that packs in a host of modifiers for the game’s arcade mode like sardines that couldn’t be packed tighter if they were a 90s slang term for cool. Exploding Rounds, aggresive Lone Wolf A.I. and Headshot only modifiers will make a three legged pony show that changes the arcade mode experiance and a brand new noir filter will let you play through the game in a classic black and white filter that matches the game’s noir influences (and this belabored blog post). And there’s just enough room in the tango for the Hoboken Rooftops.

Max Payne 3 | Review

Posted on May 23, 2012 by Eric Bastelak

It has been nine long years since we last left the Max Payne series, the thrilling cinematic franchise with a dark and twisting story. Max Payne invented one of the most imitated and never again perfected shooter mechanics, bullet time. When other series did it, it just didn’t feel right. Well move over Generic shooter two hundred and twenty billion, daddy is home and he’s going to show you what fun and challenge mean again.Read More
