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?
There was a really interesting debate on The Repartee between The Escapist Editor in Chief Greg Tito; who gave GTA V a 3.5 out of 5 in his official review and Keza Macdonald, a Contributing Editor at IGN, who gave GTA V a ten out of ten in her review, concerning whether or not GTA V is badly written. Beware, spoilers!
By now, most of the GTA Online kinks have been worked out, and I’m not just saying this because I happen to have hundreds of thousands of virtual dollars in the bank account of my main character. So with summer here, and the actual environment being too damn hostile to endure for the average gamer, what’s a beach bum to do? Go to a GTA beach party, that’s what!
There’s nothing in life that can’t be solved by throwing more money at it. And that’s why Waterworld won the Oscar for Bestest Movie Ever Shut Up You Guys. GTA Online has had a troubled start so far, and while Rockstar is working on a solution, it’s offering some money to tide the masses over with, in the form of a virtual stimulus package. But you’ll need to wait for that cash to appear.
You’ve got questions. I get that. When, how and why for starters when it comes to GTA Online. Well I’ve got the answers for you right below. Also, ignore the fact that I’ve been kicking your digital corpse in the ribs for half an hour now.
It’s a new month, and what better way to get into the summer spirit than to stay indoors and play some GTA V? GTA Online launches later today. Here’s how you’ll be able to unlock content with not just cash, but with reputation points.
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.
Nothing brings gamers together like the chance to rob a bank, play as a violent sociopath with staggering anger management issues or take your Rottweiler for a walk. GTA V has all that, and more. I’m digging the game, I truly am. But of course, the game has critics. Because something this big just has to have an ulterior motive. Or at least some excuse to slap a tinfoil hat on for.
GTA V may be a murder simulator with fast cars and loose morals, but at the heart of it all, it’s always been about one thing: Money. There are plenty of ways to make some fast cash in GTA V. But this method might just be the easiest way to keep your bank balance happy and full.
Ask anyone who has worked on a big budget game, and they’ll tell you that nothing is more important than first week sales. That’s where the bulk of the profits will come from, as a crowded marketplace and a second-hand environment only have so many days with which to turn a profit.
