Where there’s a big game involved, there’s some big money involved. As well as a lawsuit or two. GTA V has already been hit with several and bounced back, leaving Lindsay Lohan looking even more desperate than usual. The latest court case for the hit game? One that involves the mob. Capisce?
Will it or won’t it? That’s the question that plenty of Grand Theft Auto fans on PC have asked since the fifth game was revealed, promoted and pimped out on console last year. Rockstar has kept dead quiet on the matter so far, with nary a hint of anything being done to bring the game over to the PC platform. But PC gamers could be in for a surprise, as early as this Friday.
By now, most of you will have finished the mammoth single-player campaign of GTA V, and are probably swearing at your TV screens right now about getting into GTA Online. So when is the sequel coming out? Well, don’t expect it for quite a while yet, as Rockstar is pretty much focused on plenty of ideas for the current game right now.
In GTA V, heists form a large part of that gameplay experience. But if the unholy trinity of Trevor, Michael and Franklin were smart, they wouldn’t target banks. They’d go for video games, because that’s where the real money can be found. Especially when it comes to post-launch content.
I think it’s safe to say that by now, GTA V might just be one of biggest games of the year. We’ve played it, loved it and reviewed it. And that’s without even indulging in the online side if the game. Here’s some more details on that mode, straight from Rockstar.
Grand Theft Auto is a title that everyone knows. It’s the name of a series of games that helped define a generation, and in the 12 years since the third core game in the series helped push gaming into a larger spotlight.
In news that will most likely make people who are sick of GTA V headlines sicker, the game is almost out. Apparently, we weren’t cool enough to get an advance copy on time, but the following outlets certainly did. Here’s what they’re saying about the next chapter in Grand Theft Auto.
It’s hard to believe, but Grand Theft Auto is a teenager now. What was once a bouncing little top-down sandbox game on our Pentium II knee has become a full-fledged adult that is more than willing to reenact Gouranga on our asses when it gets the keys to the car. Here’s a brief history lesson on that trouble-making franchise.
I’ve always enjoyed the radio stations of GTA, something that has kept me playing for way longer than necessary ever since the days of GTA 3. Listening to Lazlo berate guests, those crazy ads and waiting for a LoveFist song to start blaring is something that only GTA fans will know about. And in GTA V, expect the biggest soundtrack ever to come out of that game.
Currently, GTA V only has two places to go. Playstation 3, or Xbox 360. Which is a shame, because I’d really like to see the game flex some muscle on a next-gen console. And maybe PC. So what happens when the game gets confirmed for PS4? The internet goes balls-mad, that’s what. Pity it’s not happening though.
Want to know how much of an achievement it is to reach enlightenment or solve a few mysteries in GTA V. Well much like any other game hitting the market, those virtual carrots on the end of a stick will be accompanying the next Grad Theft Auto game when it arrives September 22. Here’s a look at what you’ll need to do on Xbox 360 to inflate that gamer score of yours.
So, GTA 5 is getting an online world. However, in the coming months, plenty of people will be migrating to next generation consoles. Rockstar is aware of this, and while the focus has been on PS3 and Xbox 360, we might see PS4 and Xbox One getting in on the action.
I’ve got to be honest, GTA V’s online component looks pretty damn good. While we got a closer look at the multiplayer side of the game last night, we also saw that we’re getting an opportunity to create some of our own games and matches when the game goes online on October 1. Here’s some more details on that specific side of things.
The signature hook of GTA games has that they’ve always taken place in a massive sandbox of getting your cash back from hookers. All that massiveness has come at a price though, with GTA games never being exactly the very best in terms of raw graphical power. But expect that to change in GTA V.
