  • A video tribute to Grand Theft Auto

    Stagueve sent us this super cool tribute to GTA which shows flyovers of most of the GTA:SA scenery. I’m not sure the Who music is quite right, but it is sufficiently martial to make me stiffen up a little, especially in anticipation of GTAIV and the promise of Russian mobsters Hot Coffee-ing gazelle-like ladies from the Ukraine.

  • GTA IV ads pulled from Chicago buses under pressure from Fox News


    Shameful. After MyFox Fox News Chicago ran a little piece questioning why a violent game is being advertised on city buses, the head of the Chicago Transit Authority had the ads removed. There are so many things wrong with this, from ignorance on parade to the violation of free speech as a public authority arbitrarily decides what gets to be advertised and what doesn’t. Earlier they… Read More

  • CrunchArcade: GTA IV achievements leaked?


    There’s no confirmation on this, so take it with a grain of salt, and also beware that there are SPOILERS ahead if you clicky this link. If that wasn’t spoiler-y enough for you, there are descriptions (also unconfirmed) here. Personally, I believe that the best achievements in GTA games aren’t listed, because they can’t be predicted. There should be an achievement… Read More

  • CrunchArcade: GTA street map leaked!


    This reminds me of old times where you’d have a sheisty, inaccurate, hand-drawn map of say Hyrule crammed into the tiny instruction booklet. Some enterprising fellow uploaded some pics and promptly removed them, but not before they made it to the tips inbox at Kotaku. They’ve got it all nice and gallery-ed up so take a look. The town itself looks interesting, and is obviously… Read More

  • Limited Edition GTA IV Xbox 360 consoles

    Apparently there’s some game called “Grand Theft Auto IV” coming out. I’ve never heard of such a game but so help me God if it’s violent or glorifies crime, I’m going to try to get on Fox News to talk about how bad it is for our nation’s youth. Maybe it’ll just be a courtroom style simulation where you play a lawyer who prosecutes people that… Read More

  • Part two of Edge's 'why you will buy GTA IV the day it comes out'

    [photopress:gta4edge2.jpg,full,center] After reading part two of Edge’s interview with Rockstar’s president and GTA IV writer Sam Houser, published today, I went to the game’s Web site for the first time. I’m absolutely blown away by the attention to detail. Like, Radio Vladivostok is exactly how I’d imagine an ex-pat, Russian radio station. Dukes—Queens… Read More

  • Clear your schedule: Edge takes a long, fantastic look at GTA

    [photopress:gtaedge1.jpg,full,center]
    I plan on dressing like this quite soon Do you time to read a 6,000+ word article on the making of Grand Theft Auto? Most people I know, writers included, would say “no,” then punch me in the stomach for asking the question. Y’all need to make an exception for this. Edge, which, once again, is the only gaming mag I actually respect… Read More

  • More GTA IV screens for you, Mirror's Edge too


    It wouldn’t be really worth posting unless the pictures were totally bad-ass, and they are. Since you won’t be getting your hot little hands on it until April 29, just satisfy yourself for now with some sweet screens. There’s video in the via, too, if you like that kind of thing. There’s also some new Mirror’s Edge shots, which I am personally excited… Read More

  • Extensive GTA IV hands-on at CVG


    Computer and Video Games was lucky enough to get two full hours of straight-up gameplay with Rockstar’s newest opus, and they say its all coming up roses. There’s a ton of gameplay experience in there and they detail the physics, graphics, aiming system, and all the new features you’d expect to hear about. Sounds pretty awesome to me, and I’m happy to hear that the… Read More

  • GTA IV drunkenness to use dynamic physics engine

    So Grand Theft Auto IV is going to have a drinking mini-game wherein your character will stumble around more and more based on how much alcohol he consumers. Gee, I wonder if this is going to make it onto cable news channels in segments where some uptight lady from some civic organization who’s never played the game talks about how video games are bad for kids. Can’t wait. Read More

  • Gouranga! GTA Developers' Flickr nostalgia set


    To coincide with the new GTA IV site (I’m guessing anyway), one of the original developers for Grand Theft Auto has put up a ton of pictures of his team and all the stuff they’ve worked on. There’s some cool GTA stuff like that above, shots of the nerds themselves, and most importantly for me, a bunch of stuff from Body Harvest, a game I’m about to go home and play… Read More

  • PS3 technical issues the source of GTA IV delay?


    MTV has an interview with developer Jeronimo Barrera in which the GTA IV delay is cited as a good thing (why not squash bugs and polish for a couple more months) and also as being caused by the PS3 version. They’re “identical” now (except the 360 version doesn’t need a hard drive) but that the PS3 development contributed significantly to the delay is “really… Read More

  • Simpsons game developers say Rockstar 'spazzed out'

    Geek fight! Apparently some people at Rockstar (the company behind the Grand Theft Auto series) “spazzed out like little babies” at a parody in the new Simpsons game where Bart wants to play a game called Grand Theft Scratchy. “They’re supposed to be rockstars…That’s not a big Rockstar move, to be afraid of The Simpsons making fun of their game,”… Read More

  • Game Content Under the Microscope: What Do You Think?


    We’ll be keeping this story high on the front page for a bit simply because it contains such an excellent set of thought-provoking questions. – JB Today concludes our week-long look at video game violence and content. Originally we hoped to include comments from other voices, and efforts were made to hear from Florida Attorney Jack Thompson and Senator Joseph Lieberman. But… Read More

  • Nintendo Worldwide Wii Sales So Bright You Gotta Wear Shades

    The Nintendo Wii and DS are selling so well that Nintendo isn’t even bothering to make sales predictions anymore. There’s now 5.84 million Wiis out there and 40 million DSs, numbers that Nintendo really didn’t anticipate. Sales are so strong that the company is complaining that it has to keep reassessing its sales targets. So if you didn’t believe it before, believe it… Read More
