The BBC is busy making a docu-drama that tells of GTA developer Rockstar’s rise to fame and their battles with disbarred anti-game lawyer Jack Thompson. Called “Game Changer” the TV movie stars Danielle Radcliff as Rockstar’s Sam Houser, and Pill Paxton as the GTA-hating lawyer. Take Two wants none of that. They’re suing the BBC over what they believe could be trademark infringement.
I must admit - I'm quite addicted to GTA V at the moment. While the recent release on PC has been keeping me busy with some truly fun online heists, it's the single-player that has me hooked. Sure it's often crass, sometimes silly and always far too serious for its own good, but it really is a fun ride to accompany the three crazy protagonists on. And who knows, we could finally get a bit more to chew on in the future.
Digital games are the future of the industry. While I don't think retail will ever totally disappear, digital will continue to grow and the industry will have to change if retailers and distributors are going to survive. South Africa still has a while before this shift is as powerful as it is in America, where apparently digital sales are breaking records all the time.
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.
Grad Theft Auto V! It’s finally, finally on PC. That’s the entire game, from the gripping story through to GTA Online that’s available for PC gamers to experience. And of course, it’s the kind of game that’ll attract a certain kind of scummy player. Specifically the kind of player who uses cheats online. Thing is, even being more indestructible than the Juggernaut can only take you so far in GTA Online. And one regular player decided to teach a hacker a lesson in ragdoll physics 101.
You know what the best thing is about a game being properly ported over from console to PC? It’s not the bump in visuals, the joy in seeing fellow gamers experience a masterpiece or the eventual massive discount in a Steam Sale. It’s the fact that you can massively cheat the game system. I’m not here to discuss ethics, because just having such an option that doesn’t impact on other gamers, is bloody wonderful. And GTA V has plenty of cheats already, including one that allows you to morph into animals and keep on playing the game.
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?
Behold! The most powerful force in the history of anything! Money! Yes sir, there’s nothing that you can’t do with a promise of worth on a piece of paper, and you’ll need plenty of the digital equivalent in GTA V in order to get your hands on the best possible gear. So what’s the best way to do that? By playing the stock markets of course. But you’re going to need to invest big in order to earn big. And here’s how you can be a wolf of Wall Street.
The release of GTA V came and went in the later months of 2013, devoid of one crucial piece of content. GTA Online was missing from action, and the promise of a shared, persistent online slice of Los Santos to wreak havoc in with friends remained a distant dream. Only a few weeks later, and the gates to online multiplayer were flung wide open to all – but it would be a long time for the true promise of multiplayer to arrive. And even longer for a whole new market to get in on the action.
Following the blockbuster release of Grand Theft Auto IV, Rockstar once again got back to work on their iconic franchise in 2009. Not only aiming for a game that looked bigger, better and hewed closer to the ridiculous side of the franchise, Rockstar wanted to create a game that told a better story. And the best way to do that, was to triple down on the ambitions.
GTA V for PC might have been in development for an extended amount of time, but it’s still unable to escape a painful reality. It is still a PC game, and PC games will always have problems at launch. That’s why it took me quite a while to get things running smoothly on my side, with an array of settings options doing the opposite of what they should. Don't worry though, because I’m here to help.
Grand Theft Auto’s one of the few games that still embraces the good, old-fashioned cheat code, allowing you to input a string of commands or mobile phone codes to unlock a bevy of options to make your urban killing just that little bit more entertaining. Of course, they’re all in the PC version as well, but with the PC being a PC, it’s a little easier. Here’s how to cheat your way through Grand Theft Auto V.
People sure do love them some of those vidjer games! This week, two game publishers have been proud to announce that their games are selling like proverbial digital hotcakes, with a third reaching that milestone based on data-mining – and they’re well deserved sales, too.
GTA V is finally out on PC – and it works, as long as you don;t use funny characters in your Windows user name. To celebrate the launch of the much-anticipated game on PC, we’ve got some GTA V stuff to give away to one lucky winner.
Grand Theft Auto V is finally out on PC today (yes, it really, really is) and for the most part, it’s smooth sailing. The game works as advertised for most people, offering smooth and fluid gameplay that surpasses the 30fps you’d find even on the newest consoles. For most who’ve been playing it, it’s been a great experience. For others? Not so much. There’s a weird little bug that’s preventing people from downloading or installing GTA V on PC.
