GTA V is coming later this year, and you can bet our buns that that premium game is going to command a premium price. Still, if you’re ready to fork out plenty of money for a copy of the game, then it might be worth throwing a few dollars more towards the special editions. Here’s the amount of sandbox bang that you’ll get for your buck.
Well, it seems that this year we weren’t cool enough to be invited to any GTA V events, but I blame that on the fact that Geoff once drove over Dan Houser’s foot while at E3. The game has been previewed to many an outlet recently, with the embargo for that info dropping last night. Here’s a slew of new info, pics and posters for the upcoming sandbox.
Before you head off to go celebrate a free day of not working, stay awhile and take a gander at this new trailer for GTA V. C’mon, you know you want to. All the cool kids are doing it. You do want to be cool, don’t you?
Get it? Because you can go underwater? Ha, clickbait headline for the win!
How many of you are still playing The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim. I know I am. Not everyday mind you, but when I need a quick jaunt in an ancient society and feel like flexing some Force lightning, I pop that disc in for an hour. It’s a game that sits proudly on my shelf. And sweet Sheogorath, do I want to partner it up with this cool-looking statue.
Every genre has a king. With fighting games, it’s Mortal Kombat that sits on that bloody throne. Racing games have a parliament that consists of Forza, Gran Turismo and Need for Speed. And when it comes to sandbox, GTA is still undoubtedly lord and master of that side of gaming. Over the years, there’ve been quite a few attempts to regicide that position away from GTA. Some have come close, others have failed miserably. But this year, it looks like Watch Dogs might be able to pull off a dethroning. Hell, they’re pretty confident about it themselves.
Corporate sponsorships be damned, we all need a good PC wallpaper from time to time! If there’s one thing that GTA has always had, besides that mystifying Gouranga score, it’s art. Ever since GTA 3 rolled around, gamers have fallen in love with the art of the series. GTA V is keeping the tradition alive, and it’s doing so with wallpapers. Which you can download, after the jump. So go on and do it while you wait for the game to come in whenever. It’ll be just like advertising for you! Except with no cash coming your way. Profit!
Rockstar makes great games. High end PCs can make great games look damn good. But seldom do the two ever meet. While GTA IV took forever to ship onto PC, the latest iteration of the sandbox crime does pay simulator doesn’t look like it’s headed for that platform. That’s not to say that Rockstar doesn’t want to publish their next game on that platform though, as they’re actually deeply considering doing so.
You can sugar-coat it as much as you want, but there’s no denying that the GTA brand is a powerhouse in gaming circles. It’s got the legacy and the fan-base necessary to shift quite a few units, something that could be used to really launch a next-gen console cycle. GTA V though, is pretty much arriving late to the game for the current cycle of consoles, but according to Rockstar’s Dan Houser, that’s because the best was saved for last.
GTA V might be a big deal for you lot. There’s something about the idea of a massive world,a pedigree development team and an ambitious design that is making it special for eager gamers. Go figure. The game is out next year, most likely Spring, and people are having a hard time waiting for it. This new trailer, most likely won’t help either.
What’s that, you want some MOAR GTA V details, young Oliver Twists? Well, I’ll gladly acquiesce to that request, before bundling your little urchin asses to the mill where you can work for tuppence a day and then come home to a cardboard box where your father will slash you And I’m drifting again! Ok, before I go off on another tangent, here’s a the lowdown on how massive Los Santos is really going to be, straight from the mouth of Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser himself.
With the digital issue of Game Informer now out, comes a ton of new GTA details. Speculation, rumours and hearsay be damned, because now the game has some solid release details. And let’s just say that GTA V is aiming to be as ambitious as ever. Will it succeed? Read for yourself, after the jump.
It’s hard to believe just how long it’s been since a core GTA title made itself known in the gaming world. While I hated the driving mechanics that had become a tad too realistic for my tastes, the rest of the game was pretty damn good overall. GTA IV was kept alive long after release with some DLC,which wasn’t exactly spectacular, but still interesting nonetheless. That trend is going to continue in the fifth game, according to publisher Take Two.
The list of games coming out in the next month, is too damn high! But like any addicted gamer, it’s never enough, is it? Assassin’s Creed 3, Call of Duty Black Ops 2, Far Cry 3, Need for Speed Most Wanted, these are just some of the titles out in a few weeks time. And we’re already looking to the future. Devil May Cry is out in January,Bioshock Infinite in February and Crysis 3 in March. So what about that other big-hitter, GTA 5 then? Looks like it finally has a date after all. With my wallet and Xbox that is.
