I'm not sure when exactly I found out about GTAV being released (for the previous console generation), but I know I spent quite a while impatiently waiting for it. When it was finally released in September 2013, I got it for PS3. I was one of the many who pre-ordered it at GameStop and was there for the midnight release. My immediate problem with it was that it requires 8 GB free on the hard drive. My PS3 is only an 80 GB model and I had already had enough trouble managing free space. Secondly, the game took a long time to install, but it was all worth... Read All
Unfortunately, GTAV has gotten delayed again for PC players. April 15 is the new date. From Rockstar:

"Our apologies to PC gamers worldwide who have been counting down the days until the launch of the game, but a bit more time is needed to ensure that the game is as polished as possible, and to make certain that both Heists and the GTA Online experience are ready to roll out on day one for PC. As a gesture of thanks for your understanding, we will grant anyone who has pre-ordered the game an additional $200,000 in-game cash for use in GTA Online."

I'm glad they're delaying it, if not delaying it means that we get a buggy game.

In better news, online heists are hitting... Read All

Grand Theft Auto V is another great game in the series. I remember when I was eagerly awaiting the release for the PS3 version. My only disappointment with the game was that the story seemed too short, I completed it rather quickly. I spent very little time playing Grand Theft Auto: Online, the multiplayer part of the game. I was very happy with the character I created, thinking he looked very much like me.

Some time ago, I found out that the game would be coming out for the new consoles (PS4 and XBox One) and also the PC. Although I think the updated game would be a great reason to get a PS4, I have not done so. I figured that I'd wait for the PC release, which was... Read All
November 18, those who have jumped to the current generation will be able to enjoy the newly polished GTAV. The PC master race must wait until January 27 of next year.

In addition to making the game way shinier, Rockstar is adding a few new things:

- New weapons, vehicles and activities
- Additional wildlife
- Denser traffic
- New foliage system
- Enhanced damage and weather effects, and much more
- Over 100 new songs. Perhaps El Sondito will play less often. That beeping. OMG.

For the full story and a look at some very pretty screenshots, see the official announcement: ... Read All
Don't worry, the car isn't mine.

Me and a buddy were messing around on GTA:O last night and decided to snap a picture after we had successfully robbed a couple convenience stores and then lost the cops.

Other highlights include:
Successfully stealing a commercial jet and landing it in downtown Los Santos, only to bump into a tree which inexplicably caused the jet to blow up, killing us both.

A high speed car chase that took us around the entire outside of the map. Good thing it was a lot of fun, because the pay out for this mission was terrible. :P

Failing miserably trying to break into the military base. Turns out they really don't want you getting in there.

I've been playing a lot of GTA lately, so I decided it was time to set up an official Cheerful Ghost crew! All players of all skill levels are welcome. So come join our crew and let's run some missions, races, and all other sorts of mayhem all across San Andreas!

You can also send me a friend request through PSN (my PSN handle is Taion333) and I'll invite you to the crew. Just mention Cheerful Ghost somewhere in... Read All

This isn't something I'd normally share as a front-page post, as it's just a clip compilation, but I think this one actually says something that's worth saying, and really shows a change in philosophy between games.

One of the many complaints people had with GTA IV was its darker, more serious tone. The series has been known for its over-the-top carnage and sandbox mayhem, but GTA IV toned that down to support the story.

GTA V changes that. It isn't quite what you saw in San Andreas (personally, I think that's a good thing) but the mayhem is center stage yet again. And that's especially present in one of the three protagonists, Trevor.

A little background-- you play as... Read All
