  • Video: The first trailer for Grand Theft Auto: Lost and Damned

    http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?mid=43632 This is the trailer for Grand Theft Auto IV: Lost and the Damned. It debuted last night at the laughable Spike TV Video Games Awards—I’m sure we’ll post the winners at some point today—and it looks, I don’t know, quite aggressive. Loud music, bikers, the colors brown and gray, etc. The trailer only mentions Xbox… Read More

    The reviews are in for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV, but should you play it again?

    The PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV, which will be downloadable via Steam, comes out on Wednesday. The reviews embargo, however, must have lifted overnight in Europe as magazines there already have posted their reviews online. EuroGamer—the review written by one of the Rock, Paper, Shotgun gents—gives it a 9/10, calling the game groundbreaking and so on while acknowledging that it… Read More

    Grand Theft Auto IV DLC: February 17, called The Lost and Damned

    The DLC for Grand Theft Auto IV (Xbox 360 version) will be released on February 17. It’s entitled The Lost and Damned, which sounds a lot like a 70s cop movie. Rockstar hasn’t announced a price yet, but $15-$20 doesn’t seem out of the question. Dan Houser, the face of Rockstar these days, told USA Today that the expansion will star a guy named Johnny, who is a “very… Read More

    Interview with Rockstar founder Sam Houser

    1UP.com got a chance to interview Sam Houser, founder of Rockstar — the company behind a little series called “Grand Theft Auto,” which is apparently quite popular with the kids these days. Houser talks about living in New York (he’s British) and the places he finds unique and interesting, like Brighton Beach, which inspired Hove Beach in GTA. He also talks about 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

  • PS3 technical issues the source of GTA IV delay?

    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 no… Read More

  • Microsoft Pays $50 Million for Exclusive GTA IV Content: Nothing Like Throwing Money at a Problem

    Microsoft Pays $50 Million for Exclusive GTA IV Content: Nothing Like Throwing Money at a Problem

    Time will tell whether or not Microsoft’s $50 million for exclusive GTA IV content will pay dividends. Reports currently circulating the Internet suggest that Microsoft emptied its coffers to the tune of $50 million so that Rockstar produces exclusive, downloadable content for the Xbox 360 version of the game. If that’s true, then the 360 version is certainly the one to go for. Sorry… Read More
