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.

You’re cruising around San Andreas, running over pedestrians and ignoring the red lights at the robots, and you’re thinking to yourself ‘something is missing’. And then you realise, while wiping blood off of your hood ornament by ramming it through a car wash, that you haven’t got the radio on. And for some strange reason, listening to Baker Street while running down some nuns just feels right. Expect more of those good vibes, my troubled friends, when GTA V updates your favourite stations.

There’s a ton of sequels that I’d love to see made. Metal Gear Rising 2, Street Fighter 5 and Project Gotham Racing 5 are a few such examples. But I’d dig to slap leather again and ride west into the sunset in another Red Dead Redemption. And according to one head cheese at Take Two, that sequel might still be coming. Pard’ner.

I can clearly remember the first time that I ever played a proper GTA game on the PSP console. It was the original PS2 game (minus a concession here or there), playable right there in my hands and on the go. This was the future of gaming, I was certain. We’ve had a couple more of those games ported over in the years since then. And there might be another on the way.

Because you can’t kick a good rumour, more “evidence” has popped up suggesting that Grand Theft Auto V will be making its way to new platforms. A couple of European retailers have started accepting orders for GTAV on platforms that have yet to have officially announced ports.

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?

I’ve previously covered my dislike for the micro-transactions in GTA V. While a lot of people may agree with me we can say for sure that this isn’t going to change as it appears a lot more people are happy to fork out hard-earned cash to get pretty things in GTA Online.

We’ve been wondering when Rockstar would officially announce that it was bringing Grand Theft Auto’s V’s tale of three criminal idiots to the PC. We’ve also suspected that the game would end up gracing the newer consoles from Microsoft and Sony as well. It makes sense that Rockstar would opt to not announce such a thing, to save from cannibalising sales of the game at the turn of the generation. One random retailer seems to have let slip a release date.

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.

PC gamers wouldn’t know, but Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption is one of the very best games to have been released in the last generation. Taking the Grand theft Auto template to the wild west, it worked better for me than GTA itself, as it serves as a sort of historical escapism. I live in a big city, and am free to be a jerk as much as I like. I’ve never been a cowboy though, and Red Dead Redemption allowed me to do that perfectly. We could hear more about its sequel this year.

Yes the rumour that simply will not die is back and just as unsubstantiated as ever. This time the rumours are being stocked by Amazon’s German and French operations who have both listed the PC versions for pre-order in the last 24 hours.
