GTA IV Gets Cinematic

A glimpse of the video editing tool.

Rockstar, in preparation for the PC release of GTA IV on 2nd December, have released some sample movies to show off the in-game video editor. And they’ve gone bonkers.

Clearly a dream for the machinima crowd, the in-built tool will let you create your own mini-movies, which will then be shared on the Rockstar Social Club site.

The videos they’ve made are a little… strange. None more so than Gutterball, a peculiar tale about Nico at the bowling alley, pursuing a member of staff. It’s shot peculiarly slowly, with lingering shots of menial activities such as sweeping. A little Lynchian, if he found the camera too heavy.

Or how about My Own Worst Enemy, in which Nico fights Nico in ultimate battle, shot like a post-Tarrantino action movie.

There’s a couple more at the site, and come December there will be an awful lot more. Be sure to let us know about your finest creations when the game comes out.
