Grand Theft Auto V is pretty cool – and the amount of detail that Rockstar have put in to Los Santos and its surrounds is frankly unbelievable. They have built a great big living and breathing city, populated by vapid, digital idiots. Still, when you’re roaming the game, out of mission, there are a number of building, shops and business that you just can’t enter, even though they’ve been lovingly modelled – interiors and all. There’s a new mod by NewTheft that changes that.
GTA IV was a mess of a port when it initially released on PC, and it took a long time for the game to actually break playable levels. It also wasn't that visually enhanced in comparison to the console version, which made a lot of room for some crafty modders to get their hands dirty. The most famous mod around for the sandbox title was the iCEnhancer - a mod that is soon debuting for GTA V too.
It’s entirely possible that we’ll never see a sequel to Half-Life. Valve seems to be unable to make anything that ends in a 3. For a short while, you can pretend it doesn’t matter, because there’s now a gravity gun in everybody’s favourite scumbag simulator, Grand Theft Auto V.
Grand Theft Auto IV was a tepid, pitiful port job on PC when it launched over half a year later than its console counterparts. Little was done to the game to spruce it up, the frame rate chugged along at a snail's pace and there was generally nothing to rave about. Rockstar immediately approached things differently with Grand theft Auto V, taking an additional two and a bit years to finally bring Los Santos alive on the best hardware possible. Was the excruciating wait worth it all?
It’s Tuesday today right? It must be Tuesday, because that’s when we said we’d be announcing the winner of the random collection of Grand Theft Auto goodies we had to give away, thanks to the lovely chaps at Megarom and Rockstar. I can tell time and date about as well as I can add, apparently. Anyway, we’ve drawn a winner, and that winner is…
Grand Theft Auto V is a technical marvel on old hardware, but shines especially bright on current-gen consoles. The frame rate is noticeable better, textures are sharper and the world generally feels more alive. There are hiccups here and there, and Rockstar are constantly working on patches to rectify these technical issues. Too bad these optimisations are sacrificing some of the overall sheen the game has.
GTA V Heists have finally launched, bring the most arguably the most anticipated feature of the entire game to every platform currently on shelves. You can now hop online and plan dangerous, stealthy and explosive heists in equal measure, with a brand new range of vehicles and weaponry at your disposal. The money you manage to make off with will come in handy too - especially if you're in the market for these two exotic new vehicles on offer.
Grand Theft Auto V has been teasing Heists ever since the very first trailer for their online mode. The feature has been delayed time and time again, but it's finally reaching all versions of the open-world game next week. You’ll be able to rob banks with friends, engage in heart-racing getaways and bag a whole lot of cash in the process. That’s what it sounds like on paper, but how does it actually look in game?
I bet no one was expecting to wait this long when Rockstar finally announced GTA V for PC. The game has launched on consoles twice now, and still Rockstar is hammering away with the PC version. It recently got delayed for the third time, pushing the release date to early April. And I won't lie, these new screenshots aren't making that pill any easier to swallow.
While it’s perfectly fine to argue between whether AMD or Nvidia is the better video card purveyor, it’s a bit different when games start forcing you into making some of these choices. Take Nvidia Gameworks for example. Nvidia has had its hand in a lot of recent games, adding in some neat functionality for their card users and, unintentionally or not, making it a bit of a nightmare for the AMD crowd. Is GTA V next on the list?
Grand Theft Auto V is nearly available on most major platforms, and I’m waiting patiently for the arrival of it on PC. That’s coming in a few short weeks, but it seems like I, along with thousands of others, will have a choice to make. That’s because a rumour suggests that the retail version of the game will be skipping Steam entirely.
Confession time: I never finished Grand Theft Auto V. In fact, I don't think I've ever played a GTA title to completion. Somewhere along the line I get really bored - although I do think I should give Los Santos one more shot. And judging by the launch trailer, it's going to look prettier than ever.
Around this time last year nearly everyone everywhere was busy playing Grand Theft Auto V. Since then, Rockstar has been working very hard to get the game looking brand new on current-gen consoles, with the remastered GTA V launching in little over a month. Or, if you're on PS4, even sooner.
I've never been the biggest fan of the Grand Theft Auto series, although even I have to admit that GTA V was pretty darn great. Having three protagonists really helped keep things entertaining, especially since all three where great characters with their own quirks. Yes, let's just call Trevor's behaviour a quirk for now.
Hey put that pitchfork down before you take someone’s eye out. No GTA V hasn’t been cancelled on PC and isn’t likely to be cancelled either.
