Grand Theft Oh Whoah: iCEnhancer Mod Updated

By Alice O'Connor on July 28th, 2014.

Shiny.

Fan-made replacement models and textures whatnot have been jazzing up games for decades, but recent years have seen the curious development of custom cinematography. Tools like ENB and SweetFX jack into a game’s rendering pipeline, letting people create their own vision by tweaking things like lighting, shadows, colours, reflections, anti-aliasing, and all manner of blooms and blurs. While some try to bring a look closer to reality, others go more moody.

The GTFO GTA Graphics Mod

When I have my mid-life crisis, I'm going to buy a Morris Minor

Today is a bad day not to already have sixteen gigabytes of Grand Theft Auto IV already installed on your hard drive. Why? Because if, like me, you don’t you’re going to have to wait half a day to download it before you can look at the following incredi-mod yourself. Can it possibly live up to this wonderful, beautiful video? I want to know – but I’m only 5 per cent into the download. And even when it’s finished it probably won’t run anyway. Noooo!
Watch this video watch it watch it watch it…
