Rockstar is finally back at it with a follow-up to the 2010 video game Red Dead Redemption, the western based version of Grand Theft Auto. Red Dead Redemption 2 should hit store shelves in the Fall of 2017 for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. While there was no announcement of a PC version, it would be surprising if one wasn’t available with the others or at least hot on the heels of the Fall 2017 release date. Check out the trailer below. (more…)

It’s a bit unfair to judge something fully after experiencing it partially. So keep in mind that I have an open mind about GTA going forward and that I’m simply relaying to you my initial thoughts. So far, I’ve played Grand Theft Auto V for about 25 hours over the last few days (for work!) and I’ve only completed 4% of the missions.

I’ve only just met Michael, mid-midlife crisis. I just stole a boat for him and met his wannabe gangsta of a son. We’ve only just begun, and yet I don’t really care.

Franklin is a begrudging hooligan. I’ve spent most of my time playing as him. He has a dog that gets easily distracted during the thrill of the hunt by the thrill of the hump (worst POV porn E-V-E-R). I have given Franklin a full beard and a lo fro… just because.

I rather enjoy that we can switch back and forth between each main character’s lives, but I do it out of boredom more than anything else. Will that change as I play more missions? Perhaps, and I am going to keep playing this, but so far, the missions have failed to grab my attention. (more…)

It’s Live! It’s Five! Grand Theft Auto!

The Trailer for Rockstar games very anticipated hooker beatdown simulator is officially on the net. It confirms the rumors that we’re heading back to Los Satos (Los Angeles) and will even get a chance to shoot the hell out of Vinewood (the stand-in for Hollywood).

The Narration clues us in that the protagonist is trying go clean, retire from crime and, be a good dad.  Safe to assume that he’s is less than successful, but I would applaud Rockstar if they did a 180 on us and made it a game about staying on the straight and narrow. You get a menial job, avoid your former criminal buddies, never break the law. Press X to meet with parole officer. I wouldn’t play the game, but I would be amused.

GTA V’s release date is TBA.

You can check it out for yourself after the jump.
