We've spilled a lot of virtual ink in our coverage of Grand Theft Auto V. Rockstar Games' 2013 blockbuster was arguably one of that year's very best titles, delivering a unique version of automotive mayhem, along with all the other things – guns, sex, drugs, murder, thievery and biting satire – that the series has been praised and criticized for.
There is no shortage of things to do in the open world of Grand Theft Auto V. One of the more popular, though, is recreating iconic scenes from TV and film on the sprawling landmass that is San Andreas. We've already seen a famous scene from Terminator II get the GTA treatment, and now, it's the turn of everyone's favorite mob boss.
Well, it's official. We will have a courtroom battle between fallen starlet Lindsay Lohan and Rockstar Games, maker of the infamous Grand Theft Auto series. We last reported on the Lohan/Rockstar case back in December, when rumors were swirling that the then-27-year-old would sue the video game publisher.
With Independence Day celebrations well underway, Grand Theft Auto Online is back with a slew of new vehicles, weapons, articles of clothing and jobs that are so star-spangled awesome that the only thing you'll be able to utter while playing is, "'Murica!"
Fans of Grand Theft Auto Online have a pretty expansive upgrade to look forward to. Called the "I'm Not a Hipster" Update, it makes a number of significant additions to the game, adding new outfits, accessories and weapons. We don't much care about any of that, though, because the big news is that there are a number of new vehicles attached to the update.
We've seen no shortage of zany stunts in the huge, open world of Grand Theft Auto V. A quick YouTube search reveals a huge variety of videos, with people crashing and/or blowing up planes, boats, cars and whatever else they come across in the world of San Andreas. This, though, might be our new favorite way of taking advantage of GTA's many, many forms of amusement.
"What if?" is always a fun question. It's doubly entertaining when we think about it in relation to something very, very modern. So, what if Grand Theft Auto V had been released for the Commodore 64 of the mid 1980s? What would it have looked like? How would the automotive element of the open-world title have changed? How abysmal would the graphics be?
Remember the Bravado Banshee that West Coast Customs built last year to promote Grand Theft Auto V? Given away by GameStop, the woman who won it says she's better off with money to send her two kids to college than with a race car, so now you can steal buy it on eBay.
The Grand Theft Auto videogame series is loved and loathed by many, and, as it turns out, Lindsay Lohan can be added to the latter group - unless GTA's publisher, Rockstar Games, cuts her a check. More specifically, TMZ reports, the troubled actress and her lawyers are drafting a lawsuit against the publisher demanding money for using what she says is her likeness in Grand Theft Auto V without permission.
Steal some stuff, blow some stuff up, drive real fast. Therein lies the basic goodness of the monster-hit video game Grand Theft Auto V, and, it's fair to say, the essence of more than a couple of blockbuster movies and fan-favorite television franchises.
Grand Theft Auto is more than just a video game series – it's a scathing commentary on modern life. The brutal parodies of the game come fast and furious from the start, and continue through most of the story. Just hop into a car, turn on the radio and go for a cruise around Los Santos, and in short order, you'll hear some truly absurd things. Examples in Grand Theft Auto 5 include a campaign advertisement that lampoons the stuff we hear every few Novembers and the continuing story of a Fr
Grand Theft Auto V has only officially been a part of the public video game ecosystem for a few days now, and it has already completely sucked the air out of the room for the rest of the industry. Reports of a staggering $800-million take for day one sales of the newest member of the Rockstar Games franchise are almost otherworldly, and the attention the title has gotten this last week in both traditional and new media sources is unprecedented for a video game.
The "Auto" portion of Grand Theft Auto V may represent the beating heart of the game that's currently storming the world, but don't be confused into thinking that this is a cars-only kind of affair. Veterans of the franchise will recognize that GTA has long offered vehicular experiences of all stripes, on land, sea and in the air, and the fifth iteration, it does so more than ever.
In today's segment of news that isn't news, we have this gem - Grand Theft Auto V is a huge hit. Just how successful is the new sandbox title from Rockstar Games? It took in $800 million during its first global day of sales, crushing the $500-million, first-day record set by Call of Duty: Black Ops II, which was released last November.
Even though our first response was something along the lines of "It should have been the Cheetah," we will admit that building a real-life version of a Grand Theft Auto V car is a pretty meta, pretty cool promotion.
If there was any doubt that the latest installment of the Grand Theft Auto franchise wouldn't be good, we're pretty certain the game's official trailer, just released by Rockstar Games, will be enough to erase it from the collective minds of the public. We've got the one-minute launch trailer for Grand Theft Auto V, and it shows everything from the cinematic sequences and arguments among the crew to some of the heists that players will be able to undertake.
Rockstar Games has just released its latest trailer for Grand Theft Auto V. In this latest vid, we get our first look at multi-player action. And as an added bonus, there are more than a few shots of the new cars we'll be driving around when GTA V arrives in stores on September 17.
"This video was captured entirely from in-game footage." That's the sentence that follows the all-new Grand Theft Auto V trailer released today – one that gamers have been waiting on for months now. The previews have certainly whet our appetites, but this mini walk-through composed of gameplay footage has us convinced that GTAV will be a must-buy when it hits shelves on September 17.
Fans of the Grand Theft Auto video game series rejoice! With GTA V hitting shelves on September 17, Rockstar Games has released a new trailer, only this time we get to see even more car action/destruction.
YouTube was made to be a place where people post videos. But this was before anyone realized just how much rubbish gets committed to pixels every day, and how easy it would become to capture said rubbish because every gadget everyone owns contains a video camera. Still, there are some terrific productions once you get through the flying cats and yawning bunnies, such as Grand Theft Auto: RISE, by Gevorg Karensky.
